About Property

Plan the perfect family reunion or getaway in this one-of-a-kind 2,700 sq ft. historic home. Built in 1927 by the famous Scripps family in the unique "storybook" style, the home has been remodeled with the latest features to enhance its old world charm. This special "castle" features an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, 5 separate bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and loads of outdoor patio space, providing the ideal mix for both quiet relaxing and fun social time. During the summer season, rentals run from Saturday to Saturday.

Located in the heart of Pacific Beach (PB) San Diego's premier beach destination, the location can't be beat. Pack your wagon with surf and sand toys and head west for 2 blocks to the Pacific Ocean. Or, switch gears and head south 2 blocks to Mission Bay for a leisurely bike ride or to read a book on the sand. Forget something at the store? Ralph's supermarket is a 5 min. walk away, as are a wide variety of restaurants and shops for every taste.

A great place for wedding parties, professional groups, birthdays and family reunions.
