About the property

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This is a 1943 beach bungalow that has been completely remodeled inside and out with a designers flair. With its easy breezy relaxed beach decor and solid wood floors you are truly transported back to simpler times the minute you walk through the doors. The kitchen has a light and bright retro beachy theme with an authentic 1950's O'Keefe and Merritt stove/oven with a center heating element to make your favorite pancakes on. However all the modern day technology is available too, ie. 46' LCD screen with cable, DVD, and dvr available plus wifi so you can bring your own laptop. The new bathroom features a claw foot tub/shower to relax in after a day at the beach with an endless supply of on demand hot water already set at a comfortable 115 degrees. All you have to do is flip the handle.

The front yard has been professionally landscaped including a 'sandy beach' area with two Adirondack chairs so you can view the endless parade of sailboats and windsurfers. The back yard is fenced in to provide safety for your children away from the street. The back yard has a small grassy area, hot tub, sunning deck, patio and bbq.

If you choose to do nothing but read on your vacation we've taken care of that too. There is a small library of paperback books available for you to choose from. And if you bring a book you've already read and no longer want feel free to participate in the book exchange. Take a book/leave a book.

There are a few restaurants within a few minutes including a short walk over the bridge to the Barefoot Beach Club where you can enjoy your food while observing the sharks and fish swimming along in their enclosed waterway that surrounds the outside eating patio.

About Terri Miller

I love having a place in San Diego I can go to any time and love sharing it with other families who love staying in a home away from home. The minute I walk through the door I immediately feel relaxed and know I'm on vacation. I have a ton of books there and have fun just picking one out to read each time I go. But anything I want to do seems so accessible there. I can watch the sail boats right outside my door every day or rent one if I want to do it myself. I can kayak. Or take a bike ride down to the beach but I don't have to put up with the parking problems. At night I can watch the fireworks at Sea World from my front yard. I love it there and want other people to enjoy it too.

Terri Miller purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Terri Miller chose Crown Point

Location. And views. San Diego is a fun, active community with the best weather in the country. We are so close to all things San Diego. Right on the waters of Mission Bay in Pacific Beach, access to boardwalk just across the street. A short drive to downtown, Coronado Island, LaJolla, Sea World, the list goes on. The best of everything. A quiet neighborhood within minutes of the freeways and beaches. A true getaway.

What makes this bungalow unique

It's cozy and comfortable. Great views. It's been recently renovated from top to bottom, inside and out. The back yard has a bbq and hot tub. So after a long day at the beach, which is nearby, I look forward to relaxing in my own back yard. The boardwalk to the beach is right outside my door where I can ride my bike or walk my dog.

What a wonderful getaway weekend we had at Bungalow by the Bay! Terri was a pleasure to work with, and the home was perfect. From the moment we pulled up to see the mini beach with chairs in the front yard overlooking the bay, to the time we left, we had a great experience. The home was stocked with everything one could need and more. The weather was beautiful, and the home lent itself nicely to enjoying the breezes with plenty of windows and doors overlooking the bay or backyard hideaway. We enjoyed several sunsets from the comfort of the front yard utilizing the mini beach setup and chairs. There is such an amazing view of the bay, cars traveling on the street frequently slow down or stop to take photos! Just a few steps away from the front door are stairs to experience the beautiful views directly on the beach. We chose exploring by foot rather than renting a car. There were a ton of great restaurants and beach activities within a mile or two of the home. When we wanted to relax, we were able to enjoy the home amenities such as the cozy hot tub when the evening temperatures were just right. We also loved sitting on the back porch soaking in the amazing weather. Downtown was a short 15 minute cab ride. The beds were very comfortable, and the shower always had plenty of hot water. The bathroom was also well supplied with essentials. I fell in love with San Diego and this lovely home.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

We wanted to see as much of San Diego as possible when we stayed here for 4 days. This is a prime location for seeing all the sights in and around San Diego. The garage had bikes that were ready to go and you can hop on the beach path in seconds. We took advantage of the back yard amenities which included the extra large hot tub and grille. We have never stayed in a place that had so much available to use. Everything you need is there. There were plenty of DVD's and books etc... The house was spic and span clean. We had one issue and Terri had it handled right away and we never missed a minute of relaxing time on our trip. We would highly recommend this place and will stay here again if come back to this area. Thanks for everything Terri!

Comfortable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at "Bungalow by the Bay" was a Christmas present our extended family gave to ourselves! After enjoying our previous visit, we four seniors decided to bring a tiny artificial Christmas tree and share our holiday time. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked so making delicious meals together was so homey. The sunsets were spectacular. The home evidenced attention to detail and each of the bedrooms was quite comfortable. Terri was extremely thoughtful and considerate of our needs.

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. The house was very well kept, backyard was lovely and beautifully laid out. The rooms were bigger than I expected, our family of five fit perfectly. The sunsets and view everyday took my breath away. The location is wonderful. We road the bikes everyday, SeaWorld three times, the beach path and the bay path. There are wonderful restaurants less than a mile away. This home really is wonderful! The spa was a bonus! Thank you again Terri for sharing your home with our family!

Felt like I was visiting my Grandma's updated retro cottage. Attention to detail!

Such a treat to stay at this property. Everything we needed was available for our enjoyment. From bikes to beach chairs to bubble bath and sunscreen + hot tub!!

Mom, my sister and long time family friend stayed here for a week. We all would love to come back and stay at this cozy comfortable bungalow by the Bay. Beds and pillows were so comfortable. We rented a car for the week and it was great to have the driveway to park. Just make sure you have someone spot you as you back out the drive. There is a bend in the road.

Great for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have 3 little kids and this house was fantastic - there wasn't anything that we wanted/needed that wasn't available to us. It was wonderful having 3 bedrooms and a backyard. When we weren't at the beach the kids could play safely in the backyard. The hot tub was also a big bonus! Thanks Terri for a great home to enjoy with beautiful views every night! We will be back:)
