About Jen & Alex

I came to San Diego to attend college at S.D.S.U. My husband and I live near our vacation rental and my adult children still love coming to visit. We absolutely love our neighborhood! "Crown Point!". We take long walks on the bay each night and enjoy watching the sailboats on 'Sail Bay' and nightly Sea World firework display. We love kayaking over to Paradise Point for outdoor dinners on Mission Bay and watching the kite boarders on Sail Bay and the water skiers at Ski Beach (we are just 3 blocks from the bay on the east side of the peninsula). We never tire of the sunsets or watching the 'Bahia Bell' lit up on it's nightly cruises around the bay.

Jen & Alex purchased this house in 2012

Why Jen & Alex chose Pacific Beach

I've always loved Crown Point and the serenity it has to offer. I have older adult children and this property is a fun place for us to gather that they truly enjoy, with biking and water sports just outside our door. My kids & I grew up surfing, biking, windsurfing and running... I love that we have it all here!

What makes this house unique

This home is likely twice the size of most vacation rentals on Crown Point, nearly 3000 square feet with plenty of driveway and off street parking in a safe neighborhood. I chose this property because of it's unique architecture, history and perfect location. The brickwork and interior woodwork is amazing! The history of the home is fascinating. I love that it is within walking distance of everything Pacific Beach has to offer including restaurants , fine wine and nearby walking and bike paths.

Fantastic Pacific Beach rental

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect vacation rental in beautiful Pacific Beach. The house was perfect, lots of room and very equipped. We were able to cook, bike, kayak and just enjoy this beautiful home. Jennifer and Alex were great to work with and very responsive and accommodating. Great walking, biking and Jennifer put a wonderful map together of local eateries, stores etc. I would recommend this rental and would gladly visit again.

Sail Bay Home

  • 4 of 5

The home and location were perfect. It fit our needs perfectly and we had an amazing time. The home was clean and had enough room for all three families to be together and still have sufficient privacy. The host was more than accomodating and we would love to stay there again.

Graduation/birthdays celebration

  • 4 of 5

Jen and Alex were absolutely wonderful hosts! If we needed anything, it was provided to us. Our family of eight thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this historical landmark, and recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful home, close to beaches, parks, and restaurants. The only negative we experienced was Saturday evening revelers.

Fun location on water

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! Right around the corner were the white sandy beaches surrounding the bay. We took full advantage of the kayaks and a sunset trip out on Sail Bay. The house was spacious and a nice size with plenty of room to spread out for five adults. It was about a 10 minute walk to the beach, very close and a pretty walk along the water until we reached the ocean. The owners were very nice and helped us find two fun restaurants in Pacific beach. We are definitely planning another trip back and soon. Thank you Jen

Nice House for a Family to Share For a Wedding

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a residential neighborhood with good on street parking. There is a trendy coffee shop just down the street that is popular with locals. The rental was clean and had ample seating for a large group. It is 2 blocks as the crow flies to Sail Bay, but the walk to Pacific Beach is about two miles. The house is convenient to major routes north and south and with no traffic is 15 minutes or so from the easily reached airport.

Although I felt the upstairs king bed was a bit hard, I heard no complaints about the beds from our five couples. One note - you have to walk through the "four single" bedroom to get to the King bedroom upstairs. While this worked for my immediate family, since my kids slept there, it would not be ideal for non-family units.

Jennifer Ross is very attentive to the property and gets back quickly. She is particular about her house rules, which is understandable since it was made quite clear in town that Rentals are NOT wanted by the locals. Though we did not have any incidents with neighbors, it was clear they did not want us there, and parked a vintage VW right in front of the house that did not move for our entire stay. It seemed that other parking spots seemed to vanish as well. But we did not let it bother us since we were made aware of this attitude of locals ahead of time. This DID NOT ruin our vacation at all. In fact we joked about it. By the way the driveway can hold three cars.

Our family made use of the barbecue and outside patio and this was nice. We didn't get to use the kayaks since it was too cool. We did try the bikes which are single gear cruisers. They are fine for people under my height of 6'2", but a bit small for me.

Overall we had a nice time and this area of San Diego/Pacific Beach is beautiful. We do recommend travelers go to La Jolla/Torrey Pines to the Glider port and do the Paragliding! It is so beautiful up there!
