Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: When we retired several years ago, we began to make our home available to vacationers. Our home is a classic 1910 Craftsman Style Bungalow which we remodeled in 2008 and 2013. We still live here part-time and enjoy taking road trips both near and far.

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach:
Beginning in the 1960's, we both worked in San Diego and always lived in the beach area. We knew we wanted to stay and find the perfect home to raise a family. In 1978, we were fortunate to find our PB Bungalow. Now, with the children grown and gone, it feels more like a vacation home to us. Whenever we leave on trips, we always look forward to returning because there's just no place like home - especially ours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you've come to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay, our home is the place to be because it's just a short walk to BOTH of them. No driving needed. No parking problems. And our backyard pool offers the perfect ending to a day at the beach or a busy day of sightseeing.
