Wonderful house and location

We were in San Diego for a wedding the Crown Point property was perfect for our extended family. The house lives up to it's name of the Storybook house with it's unique design and history. We found everything we needed and the location close to Pacific Beach was perfect for the kids. Thanks Ryan!

Great family location

This home was the perfect place for our holiday stay. It really exceeded our expectations- the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and clean. The pool table was a big hit and the hot tub and view from the top deck was awesome. We loved the architecture of the home and the location was perfect -we could all easily walk to the bay or the ocean and restaurants without the hassle of parking. Ryan is a nice host and very accommodating and communicative.

Nice place in great location

We stayed here with 3 of our adult kids, two of their spouses, and 2 grandkids. The layout worked well for us, especially the enclosed courtyard. Kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of space. The gas fireplace is a nice touch. There must be 20 bars and restaurants within a 6 block radius! But the house is in a very quiet neighborhood. Lots of electric scooters to get around on. Close to the beach and mission bay. If you need lots of room, its perfect!

Great location beautiful architecture

This was a great home base in between burrito runs and sightseeing in SD. We ended up liking the house so much that we spent the majority of our vacation in this charming retreat.

A Harry Potter House

House is full of character, lots of cozy nooks and crannies. The home is comfortable. Beds very comfortable. Ample room to accommodate several families. Location is walking distance to everything- restaurants, store, coffee, beach. Quiet neighborhood, parking for guests can be a challenge but he has 2 spaces for tenant. Good home instructions. Clean and stocked with lots of fresh towels. Not a rental for lots of children that are loud. Roof top deck has great view. Great open space for guests. 1 oven a bit small, but great counter space.  Patio is large with lots of seating. Owner has a Cockatoo bird that is friendly and fun. Owner was great and accommodating, no problems. He lives on premises but very respectful of privacy. My guests loved the house. Would definitely rent again!

Great family house!

Our 3-generation group had the chance to live in this great house near the beach. Bedrooms were large and could easily accomodate more people, especially our 2 babies. Unfortunately, the pool was not working for half of our stay but the owner repaired it as fast as he could and agreed to compensate for it. Only complaint is lack of a wardrobe in the main floor bedroom. Enjoy this almost historic house just as we did!

Excellent family vacation home!

This was our second time in this beautiful Tudor home. The location is perfect for the beach, the bay, shopping, and restaurants. We felt like locals, not tourists. It was so nice to host a family dinner with a great kitchen and plenty of space to relax. We will be back again next year!

Spectacular home and location

Our family of 9 enjoyed a wonderful week's stay in Ryan's great property . The teenagers remarked that is had the feel of a "Harry Potter" house! The location could not be more perfect as just a very easy 1-2 block walk to Pacific Beach or Mission Bay. We had fun cooking in the spacious kitchen, but we especially enjoyed hanging out on the back patio chatting or being in the pool together. Also great that there was ample parking space by the back gate for our SUV and rental van. Easy two block walk to Ralph's grocery store which had everything we needed. Ryan was available when we needed him and so easy going. Hopefully you will get to meet Birdie, his friendly cockatoo. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks, Ryan!

Great location and space for gatherings!

We just had a great multi-generational family reunion at this property. Not only is the house charming with surprising nooks, balconies and decks, but the layout works very well for a large group with diverse interests. And the surprise was how much time we spent in the lovely enclosed patio, which was great for containing a toddler. It's a quick walk to both the bay and ocean beaches, as well as lots of restaurants, surf shops, bike rentals,.... so we only needed to use our rental cars to get to Sea World, the Midway,.... Logistics made easy! I will just add that although the fifth bedroom works well, but is not as nicely finished as the first four bedrooms-it is more of a kid's room. But this did not affect our ability to enjoy the property and we will stay there again. Ryan, our host, was also very nice and quick to respond to any questions.

Better than we imagined

This is a great place. Very roomy and comfortable. Great beds, great amenities, great location, convenient parking. It was the perfect fit for 3 families attending Marine Corps graduation. It provided us with a wonderful place to congregate- as well as a great "home base" from which to explore the area. Owner was very pleasant and easy to work with. I hope I have reason to return. We all loved it.

Beautiful property in perfect location!

From top to bottom, this house is gorgeous! Artfully designed and tastefully decorated, it is truly unparalleled. Spacious and luxurious, it held our party of ten effortlessly. The grounds, also, are expertly maintained and absolutely bucolic. Even in the off-season, this is a wonderful place to vacation. A few evenings, we prepared meals in the well stocked, state of the art kitchen, then retired to the living room area where we relaxed on plush leather sofas, cozy by the fire, to engage in conversation or movie viewing. Other nights, we chose to dine out in one of the many restaurants in easy walking distance. Mornings, we frequently strolled down the promenade by the beach (strategically located only two blocks from the property), or rode bikes provided by the property owner. Days were spent visiting attractions such as the San Diego zoo and Torey Pines Park--all easily accessible by car. I really can't extol the virtues of this property enough. Our party consisted of teens, young adults, and middle-aged folks, and there was something for everyone! Ryan, the property owner, possesses the wonderful qualities of being helpful, informative and engaging yet not the least bit intrusive. In sum, we would highly recommend this beautiful property to anyone planning to vacation in San Diego!

Awesome!

This place was perfect! We stayed for a week with seven adults and three children. The house was large enough to accommodate everyone and give privacy. The backyard with the pool is fantastic for kids and the hot tub on the roof is perfect for adults. You are walking distance from the beach and plenty of restaurants. It's a 20 minute drive to any other tourist destination in San Diego. The owner is very accommodating and gives you space. Would love to go back!

Great place! Close to everything you need!

We really enjoyed this house with my family of ten. Plenty of room and outdoor space. It’s close to the beach, restaurants and a grocery store!
