About the property

3 bedroom 2 full bath fully furnished home sleeps 6+ (fold away beds available)

Experience true Southern California San Diego living. The character and charm of this beautiful home are only surpassed by its location in the highly coveted quiet neighborhood of Point Loma. Conveniently located minutes from the airport, San Diego bay, popular beaches and major attractions. You will love staying at this beautiful property. The beauty of the home is complemented by the tropical courtyard where you can sit under the giant palm trees, sip a glass of wine and warm yourself beside the fire pit. World-renowned Stone Brewery is walking distance and major restaurants, churches, pubs and grocery stores are also all in walking distance. Liberty Station, one of San Diego's city parks, is across the street. The park has a running path where paddle boards and kayaks can be rented and fronts the canal that opens up into the bay. Point Loma's famous green parrots can be seen hanging out in the palms from time to time. If you're coming to San Diego and looking for the comfort of home and the convenience of central location, you won't want to pass up Big Pink! NOTE: We don't allow guest-hosted parties or group gatherings. Maximum of two cars at the property allowed.

Felt at home almost immediately!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a nice weekend getaway with our adult children all coming from different places, and could not have found a better place to enjoy each other's company. The house is charming and everywhere you look, there is something interesting to see. The morning sun coming through the living room window was my favorite. Proximity to the airport was a plus for us, as we were picking up and dropping off and wanted to maximize the time we had to spend together. The best way to enjoy family is in a home that feels like a home, and Big Pink did that for us from the start. With the privacy of three separate bedroom but the communal areas of the living room and the cozy courtyard, it was just perfect. We played board games and filled the house with laughter. The house is in a lovely neighborhood conducive to walks along the harbor. Bryan and Annie could not have been any nicer. I highly recommend this house, and will certainly be back whenever we are in San Diego.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, Maria! Annie and I are so glad your family enjoyed staying at Big Pink. We really enjoyed hosting you all and knowing that you had such a good time. Now that our five kids have all grown up and moved away, the house doesn't see the "family" energy as much anymore, so it was really nice knowing you all felt so at home there. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Great house and great host!

  • 5 of 5

Bryan is probably the best house host I've experienced in my travels. It was my mother's birthday and he left us a bottle of wine, cupcakes, and decorations. He also was an amazing communicator.

The house itself is very comfortable with three bedrooms with queen beds and two bathrooms. All the bedrooms are upstairs and each room has its own AC unit which was nice. The outside deck was lovely.

All in all a really great stay! If you're a light sleeper grab the bedroom towards the back as the traffic can be heard way more in the front bedroom. A small price to pay for this lovely home in a great area!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely furnished property with unique decorations and antiques. Bryan is a wealth of knowledge on local sights and restaurants. The provided beach towels were much appreciated! Central location was close to harbor, Balboa Park, Cabrillo Monument (great views), and Mission Bay, and an easy drive to Coronado and La Jolla. Liberty Station provides a number of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

We don't like to cook on vacation, so the microwave, toaster, mini-fridge, and coffee maker were all we needed. The movie collection was extensive, and we enjoyed watching an old favorite "Biloxi Blues". The Big Pink provided us with a *much* more relaxing vacation than we would have had in a cramped hotel room. Thanks for the stay!
