Activities/Attractions: Ocean Beach is a small beach community a few miles northwest of downtown San Diego and is about as unpretentious as San Diego beach living gets. Sunny days are punctuated with the occasional jet roaring overhead, the barking of happy dogs partying at Dog Beach, waves pounding the coastline of Sunset Cliffs. It's a place where Halloween and New Year's Eve are high holy days, and the O.B. Chili Cook Off, the Christmas Parade, and the 4th of July fireworks show are annual traditions.

In many ways, it's kind of a quiet sleepy place that time forgot. It's one of the few places left in San Diego (or the rest of the country for that matter) where the shops are locally owned and managed.

The Bed and Breakfast is a short ˝ block walk to the bathing/surfing beach, Ocean Beach Pier for fishing, and the seaside cliffs with their tidal pools. Also, within walking distance are a wide range of restaurants, pubs, coffee houses, groceries, hardware, office supplies, surf shops, post office, banks, etc.

One of the unique shopping opportunities is the collection of quality antique stores and malls. Located just minutes away from the Mexican border and 10 minutes from San Diego's Lindbergh International Airport. San Diego Points of Interest are a 5-15 minute drive from the house:

  • Sea World of California
  • World Famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park
  • Balboa Park
  • Horton Plaza in downtown San Diego
  • Historic Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego
  • San Diego Convention Center
  • Legoland just north of San Diego
  • Cabrillo Point/Point Loma Lighthouse
  • World famous golf courses such as Torrey Pines
  • Mission Bay recreation area for water sports

"A relaxing, cozy and wonderful getaway for us. Your gracious hospitality and delicious muffins were a splendid touch. I'd recommend the Elsbree House B&B to other travelers."

"A wonderful reprieve from the desert! Thank you for a lovely stay."

"A sanctuary of peace and tranquility with ocean breezes, colorful flowers, water fountains, clean, comfortable room/bed with extra touches, (I liked the chocolates) plus the wonderful muffins and homemade bread served in a cute Country Cottage dining room. Katie and Phil were great too. Just the right amount of personal service and yet not intrusive. Great place for shy, reserved, private, guests looking for peace and quiet, not conversation."

"... We could not have picked a more wonderful place to stay. San Diego is terrific and we will be back. Thank you very much."

"... A perfect B&B and perfect innkeepers. Elsbree House is beautifully kept, homey and charming. I especially appreciated all the fresh flowers. Breakfasts were great too, and i almost don't begrudge the extra pound or two that I acquired from piggy out on the granola and muffins. Both of you, Katie and Phil were helpful, efficient friendly without being intrusive and made me feel very much at home. Hope to see you same time, same place, next year."
