About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms , 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This luxury, six-bedroom, four-bath home, in an upscale neighborhood at the top of Point Loma, has not only a fantastic view but a panoramic one: of San Diego's skyline, Coronado Bay Bridge, San Diego Bay, and the Laguna Mountains. This view is visible from the dining room, living room, kitchen, family room, master bedroom, den, and the home's three decks.

In addition, the living room, dining room, and family room (all with fireplaces) open onto the largest of the three decks - a spacious place to barbecue, dine, lounge, and watch the boats on San Diego Bay. This set up makes a convenient place for entertaining, be it a business meeting, , family reunion, birthday, graduation, or anniversary celebration.

The kitchen has a new Jenn-Air range, two new microwaves, dishwasher, and all the small appliances you have at home: mixer, electric can opener, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, blender,, and basic staples. The kitchen connects to the formal dining room and family room, and all three have a view of the city skyline, mountains, Coronado bridge, and bay.

The family room has its own deck, fireplace, cable TV, and DVD. It is conveniently next to the kitchen dining area and the home's largest deck - a great place for barbecuing and large-group activities.

The formal living room also has a fireplace, the spectacular cityscape view, and opens onto the spacious deck. The formal dining, with same view, adjoins.

The second-floor master suite has its own deck, a panoramic view of the bay, gas fireplace, California king-size bed, queen-size hide-a-bed, and large desk. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower with bench, two sinks, and large, cedar, walk-in closet.

A separate sleeping area upstairs has a double-size bed and sitting area with view - a perfect area for privacy.

There are three first-floor bedrooms: The first has a queen-size bed and bath/shower. A second bedroom a queen bedand large bay window. The third bedroom has a cal king bed. These bedrooms have California closets installed. There is another bathroom with a shower/tub between bedroom two and three.

A den off the formal living room has a view of the city and bay, a fireplace, a queen-size sofa bed, and double French doors - a great room for the kids.

This home also has a small yard off the main deck, a laundry room with washer and dryer, a barbecue, and plenty of parking.

This home is close to surfing, tide pools, a skateboard park, Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma Lighthouse, deep-sea fishing and diving, sailing, kayaking, tennis, and golf.

Sea World, Mission Bay, and Sail Bay are just across the bridge. On the bay side of the point, pick up a deep-sea fishing charter in the old Portuguese fishing village of Point Loma, home to the San Diego Yacht Club and Humphrey's By the Bay on Shelter Island.

A short scenic drive from Point Loma around the harbor takes you to the airport, Harbor Island, and the downtown waterfront. On this beautiful bay, you can tour the Aircraft Carrier Museum, the Santa Maria replica, the old Star of India sailing ship, or take a harbor cruise. Stroll further down the bay past cruise ship docks to Seaport Village to eat, shop, or just have an espresso at Upstart Crow, a family-owned bookstore.

Continue south to the waterfront park for the outdoor concerts, or take the ferry across the bay to Coronado Island for lunch or dinner. Walk up Broadway to Horton Plaza, guaranteed a one-of-a-kind mall. A few blocks away is the Gas Lamp District with its great old architecture, sidewalk restaurants, and teeming nightlife.

If you take the Laurel exit off Harbor Drive and follow it up the steep hill to its end, you will be in Balboa Park, home of the San Diego Zoo, Old Globe Theater, Japanese Garden, Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, IMAX Theater, and eight museums. Presidio Park and Old Town, the first European settlement in California, are just two exits north of Laurel.

Enjoying the outdoor living space in this beautiful Point Loma home

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 5, 2010

The Point Loma area is the place to stay when planning your next family vacation or family reunion in San Diego. Minutes from the airport, this beautiful Point Loma vacation home is close to favorite San Diego attractions such as Sea World, San Diego harbor, downtown San Diego, the Point Loma Lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean. This San Diego home with spectacular views was the ideal setting for our Bear family gathering ---bright, light, spacious and relaxing with extra outdoor living spaces. The upstairs expansive master suite allowed us to get away from it all, with Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and private deck with, of course, views of the city and harbor. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the main level provided privacy for all. And the large kitchen, eating area, comfortable family room and patio area provided an ideal gathering area. Early-bears enjoyed the beautiful sunrises from this home and nighttime views of downtown San Diego were amazing. Also, on our evening walks, we loved watching the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean. A real highlight were the walks in this gorgeous Point Loma neighborhood, with Peet’s coffee our destination and Fresh & Easy market close by for groceries. If you have friends or relatives attending Point Loma Nazarene University, you can easily walk from here to campus. I would highly recommend this home for year-round family gatherings, as well as a place for families of PLNU students to stay while visiting their student. The VRBO Bear

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Moana house was perfect for our San Diego family reunion. One of our goals was to have our children enjoy the theme parks and the perfect location of this home helped us to meet that goal. It is in an ideal location, extremely close to Sea World and a close distance to the SD Zoo, Safari Park and Legoland. For the adults in the group, we were able to hop to Petco Park for a Padres game, to Balboa Park for museums and shows, and roll down the hill to trendy Ocean Beach.

The high ceilings and large living rooms gave the house a feel of luxury and grandeur. The six bedrooms and four bathrooms comfortably accommodated our group. The beds were comfortable, bed covers added a homey touch and plush towels provided. We appreciated always having ample hot water for our showers. The kitchen was large with two refrigerators and two microwave ovens ably handling our multi-family group. The large-capacity washer and dryer were also great for our families with small children.

We celebrated the 4th of July with a cookout on the large deck. The gas grill (with two spare tanks!) did a great job with the grilled asparagus and steaks. Instead of having to fight the traffic, we enjoyed the 4-site syncronized fireworks show with a great view of San Diego Bay.

A great house for large groups, a great location and beautiful, panoramic views. We'd definitely book this home again should the occasion arise in the future.

This property was absolutely magnificent!!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG! This property was absolutely magnificent!!! It had everything we asked, location, amenities and the view is to die for.

The staff, Rich and Lisa are two of the most friendliest human beings I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They were the hosts.

My family and I can't wait to book another trip to San Diego, we will only book with this team.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the owner Cheri. She also was a breath of fresh air. I wish I could rate this property and management team with 10 stars, they definitely deserve it.

Thank you guys for making our trip memorable and we look forward to staying with you again real soon!

Great, large home for extended family stay and entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

We were in San Diego for our daughter's wedding and wanted to host a brunch the morning after. I arranged all the flowers for the wedding, (the second refrigerator was terrific), packaged 100 homemade cupcakes as favors, had meals in for up to 14...and 10 "slept" over on 3 of the nights...Plenty of room for all the happenings...including the brunch for 60!

Christy, the manager, could not have been more helpful or responsive.

Great view...lots of kitchen gadgets...things that we thought they needed, Christy made note of and said she'd replace and/or add.

Good solid, attractive rental home décor, not elegant or upscale, but comfortable and easy with children. Nice homey touches that warmed it up. White carpeting that stayed, surprisingly, clean.

For our crowd, wine glasses were in short supply...husband noted that there were dozens of coffee cups, but just 4 or 5 wine glasses...he seemed puzzled, but, really, how many coffee mugs get broken relative to wine glasses? Duh!

One of the beds seemed very hard, but an extra foam pad found in the master closet solved the problem!

Very comfortable home, very, very clean...

Take shampoo and bar soap...all else seemed to be there!

Why keep looking for a place to stay? This house has it all and is perfectly situated.

  • 5 of 5

12 guys on trip? No problem if you stay at this property. In the middle of golf, race track, great dining, or just playing cards on the decks and corn hole in the back yard while relaxing with a drink. We were blown away. A lot of memories were made with this property being the centerpiece of our trip. It has everything you are looking for. Owner and manager were quick to respond to all questions too. Book it fast!
