This house has a private front patio facing the San Diego Bay; allowing you to enjoy partial bay views while sitting on the front patio chairs.

About Eric Lonigro

Gratefully, I came to San Diego from Japan in 1999 as my last duty station in the US Marine Corps. I quickly realized that San Diego is one of the most beautiful and amazing cities to live in the world and made it my mission to find a way to stay here! I'm sure you will agree, San Diego is a hard place not to love:)

Why Eric Lonigro chose Crown Point

This house is located perfectly within the beach community. Close to the beaches, the bay, and all of the hustle and bustle of the beach community without all of the noise and cramped atmosphere that often comes along with it.

What makes this house unique

The house has a large back yard that is very rare and the house has an open floor plan that is large compared to most places at the beach:)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were grateful to Kevin for coming to our rescue when the "Sail Beach Sanctuary" owners canceled our reservation just 2 days before our trip. The house is comfortable and in a good location on the north end of town, not far from the freeway and 3 blocks from a quiet beach. It's a quiet neighborhood, too, and there is a Trader Joe's a few blocks away. Kevin also recommended a few nearby restaurants. The house was very clean, and the bedrooms are a good size with comfortable beds. The bathroom is handicapped accessible, if you need that. We liked being able to use the washer/dryer, too. The back yard is a decent size but it was dark by 6 p.m. when we were there, so we never got to use it or try out the grill. Thanks again, Kevin!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! Older home but very clean and had everything we needed. Our dog enjoyed the big fenced back yard. The location is perfect. We could walk/ride bikes just a few blocks to the bay or a short drive to everything in the area.

Very helpful host

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a good condition just as the description stated. It was in a good neighborhood conveniently close to beaches and grocery stores. The host was always very helpful and everything were handled in a professional manner. The house had a big backyard perfect for barbecues. Me and my friends had a great time here and I would recommend it to people of any ages.

Great host and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was accurately described and we got what we expected. The location is really great with walking distance to grocery shopping as well as the bay area. There is a backyard that came to be very useful for barbecues. Even though a car is recommended you would be just fine with biking around. Through out the stay all our needs were meet. When every an issue came up it was handled the best way possible. I highly recommend this place for all sorts of purposes. We spent a great deal of time surfing and Kevin gave us some pointers. All in all a great host and he helped make the stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

Birthday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is conveniently located close to beach which was the main reason for renting, can easily fit 7 to 10 people, the back yard and the grill was of very good use to us. Aaron was great in providing the bookings and area/restaurants and such things to do around the area. I also like that he was available 24/7 when needed (had to Text late looking for parking spot). The house is a bit older and would need a few repairs here and there but nothing major, the neighbors are very welcoming. I would recommend this house to anyone of any age so is ready to indulge in beach San Diego beach life. I would definitely redo next year.

Thanks Aaron!!

Our first home in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We moved in San Diego from Italy the past September for a long term commitment. We booked Kevin's house from Italy, and we were a bit nervous about the big moving and what we'd have found there. Kevin was the perfect host from the beginning. He was so easy and kind with us, even when I was a bit overwhelmed by our coming moving, he always help me out as best as he could. When we arrived in his house in PB in the middle of the night we immediately understood the reason for all those positive reviews: it really feels like home. We ended up spending more than 3 months there (we planned just to stay 2), enjoying the peacefulness of the single-family house, the nice and big backyard, cooking steaks on the outdoor grill and hanging around PB in the weekend (a nice and family-friendly park, with a playground on the sand and huge space for playing and running, is just 5 minutes walk away). Kevin's house has everything you need for your stay: a big and comfy living room, a spacious dining table, fast-speed internet connection, TV, a fully-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, water and ice dispenser included), two big bedrooms, bathroom with a big shower and a laundry with washing machine and dryer. We travel a lot, and stayed in tons of different rented places, and in the end I understood that there is something even more important than the house features when you look for a place to stay: the people. And Kevin is the best host ever. He'll help you out when you need from small stuff to important advice. And when he does that he leaves the impression that he's really happy to do it. Thanks again Kevin for helping us start our new life here in the best way...hope to see you soon!

Quaint Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I live in SD but our place is not big enough to accommodate our big family so when we found this place we were thrilled! Kevin was super easy to work with and even allowed us to check-in early to decorate the place for Christmas. It meant a lot that our family could be together on the holiday and the home was perfect for us. We LOVED the big open living space, with the fireplace to boot! We enjoyed several chilly nights cuddled around a fire. There were PLENTY of places to sleep- the two bedrooms were much bigger than we had expected, both with fans in the closets, linens, and an extra air mattress as well- not to mention the futon in the back of the house and also the sofa in the living room pulls out! The house is a little dated, but there are renovations coming, plus we all rather liked the quaint, old, shabby chic feel it had to it. Also, the location was great! At the junctions of Pacific Beach and Crown Point, it was central to TONS of things and access to the freeways was easy and close as well. Thank you Kevin for allowing us to stay- we all had a blast and hope to maybe see you again next year!
