Why Karena Long chose San Diego County

We love this midcentury modern house with open concept floor plan. The beamed ceilings and views charmed us from the beginning. The property was purchased in May of 2014 all we put in new flooring, gave it a fresh paint job, updated a few appliances and then put in new furnishings and decor. We hope you love our stylishly modern home as much as we do!

Perfect mid century home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our little family! We loved the mid century feel and the simplicity of the decor! Karena went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with our 14 month old and 3 year old! There was even a little welcome basket when we walked in the door and some toys and books for our kids to enjoy! The beds were very comfortable and the deck was a great place to sit out and enjoy the view! The location was perfect and quiet! Close to beaches, sea world and just a quick drive to the airport! We would stay here again!

Nice beachhouse up hill

The house is nice and cosy. Nearby down town San Diego and the coastline. The house has a nice balcony with a view to the sea and a welcome sea breeze. Also a beautiful litle garden backyards. We enjoyed very much with our family: parents and 4 teenagers.

Beautiful home in a perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Jetson Gem. Such a beautiful home in a great location and great neighborhood. Karena could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable about the area. From beaches to restaurants she helped answer all of our questions. The home is beautifully maintained with care and pride. We were about a 5 min drive to Pacific Beach and loved sitting on the front patio in the morning seeing the bay and the ocean. In the evening we enjoyed the front patio again to view the firework show from Seaworld. The kitchen was stocked so perfectly for us, we where able to enjoy grilling and having a nice family dinner. The beds were super comfortable with plenty of space for all 7 of us, as well as extra bedding for all. I really can't say enough nice things about this property. It was perfect for my family and helped make our vacation memorable for sure! Definitely plan to return.

Perfection for vacation

  • 5 of 5

Best place for vacation, not but a couple miles off the beach, makes it cheaper as well as calmer. You get an outstanding view of the city and ocean! Super clean and extremely accommodating! Basically a 5$ lyft to the beach. Well worth it.

quiet safe clean

  • 5 of 5

What more could you ask for - Lovely home. Close enough to the hustle and bustle, yet far enough away to have peace, quiet and serenity. Loved the Keurig coffee provided every morning. (So much so-came home and bought a Keurig set) Would love to stay again next time we go to San Diego. Thank You
