About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Imagine relaxing in the 36 jet deluxe Jacuzzi surrounded by the gentle rustling of bamboo as you listen to your favorite iPOD music through crystal-clear Bose outdoor speakers.

Grill something delicious on the deluxe BBQ to eat 'al fresco' on the beautiful teak table on the large outdoor wooden deck. Chat with your friends while they sip freshly made tropical drinks at the outdoor wet bar.

Children can play safely in the enclosed grassy front and back yards or have a challenging game of basketball on the large basketball court.

The centrally-located Point Loma Charmer provides a PERFECT location for vacations, family reunions, corporate retreats, yachting regattas, or just getting away from it all.

But don't take our word for it, read the raving reviews over the years from our guests (including the founder of VRBO) and then check out our new video of the property.

The Point Loma Charmer, situated in the prestigious 'Wooded Area' of Point Loma, is an inviting 3 bedroom 2 bath home, decorated with French and Italian antiques -- the ideal place for a relaxing San Diego vacation.

Close to the beach but away from the crowds, this immaculate home is a great location.

Enjoying views of nicely landscaped yard 11/30/2009

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This Point Loma charmer of a home was the perfect location for my fall trip to San Diego. Located on in a quiet wooded Point Loma neighborhood, this comfortable casual home offers everything a little bear could hope for, yet is less than 10 minutes from San Diego's Lindbergh field (how convenient is that?). This home is close to EVERYTHING that San Diego has to offer - the lights of the Gaslamp District and downtown San Diego, Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, the USS Midway (a must for WWII History buffs), watching the sunset from Sunset Cliffs, or the nearby beach communities of Ocean Beach, Mission/Pacific Beach, La Jolla. And after a day of sightseeing, what more could a little bear desire than my own little place of solitude? That's what this home offers, and so much more...

Upon arriving at the home, you will take note of the quiet dead end street location (very little traffic) complete with a fenced front and rear yard. Upon entering, you'll appreciate the comfortable living and dining areas and hardwood floors throughout. The sunny equipped kitchen, and the large deck area off the kitchen is perfect for both small or large groups, complete with BBQ, Hot Tub and even your own private basketball court. When the sun goes down, and it's time for a little hibernation, the comfortable master bedroom suite is a great place to retire and dream about all the exciting things in store for tomorrow.

The VRBO Bear

P.S. As an added bonus, for those visiting Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU), this home is just a few short blocks from the school, making it perfect for visiting alumni or parents of current students who prefer a real home, rather than a small hotel room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: The Point Loma Charmer is a great property. After living in it for three years, we started renting the Charmer out to our guests in 2005. Since then we have had over 150 families stay at the Charmer with over 60 positive reviews. Having traveled and rented vacation homes around the world, we know what makes for a great stay: a house that is clean, well-maintained, and centrally-located to all of the tourist attactions. The most satisfying aspect is reading the kind comments from our guests in our Guestbook and seeing where the Charmer has made a difference in making their vacation, reunion, or wedding reception a success. We even hosted the founder of VRBO at the Point Loma Charmer -- see his review on 'VRBO Stayed Here.

Why the Owner Chose Wooded Area, San Diego, CA, USA:
The Wooded Area of Point Loma is noted for its beautiful homes and 100 year old trees. The property is located in a residential neighborhood that is tranquil and inviting yet close to everything that San Diego has to offer: the world famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs National Park, Cabrillo National Monument, Legoland, Downtown Gas Lamp District, San Diego Yacht Club and more. And always sparkling clean!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our favorite evening at the Charmer begins with drinks at the outdoor wet bar on our large deck. Then, off to San Diego's Gaslamp district, which is only minutes away, for some of the finest cuisine that San Diego has to offer. After dinner, we would stop off at Sunset Cliffs to watch the sunset, which are some of the finest in the world. Then, back to the Charmer for a soothing Jacuzzi while listening to our favorite music and the soft rustle of the bamboo. To respect our neighbors please abide by San Diego's noise curfews at 11:00pm on weekends and 10:00pm during the week. Move inside to enjoy our beautiful home for late night fun.
