About Sue Modell

When we retired several years ago, we began to make our home available to vacationers. Our home is a classic 1910 Craftsman Style Bungalow which we remodeled in 2008 and 2013. We still live here part-time and enjoy taking road trips both near and far.

Sue Modell purchased this house in 1978

Why Sue Modell chose Crown Point

Beginning in the 1960's, we both worked in San Diego and always lived in the beach area. We knew we wanted to stay and find the perfect home to raise a family. In 1978, we were fortunate to find our PB Bungalow. Now, with the children grown and gone, it feels more like a vacation home to us. Whenever we leave on trips, we always look forward to returning because there's just no place like home - especially ours.

What makes this house unique

If you've come to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay, our home is the place to be because it's just a short walk to BOTH of them. No driving needed. No parking problems. And our backyard pool offers the perfect ending to a day at the beach or a busy day of sightseeing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sue, I just wanted to let you know that my family had a great time staying at your house. They said many times how it seemed like the owners really wanted them to feel at home and to enjoy themselves. Thanks again!

Wonderful place to stay in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation in San Diego staying at this property and it was amazing. The house is very clean, roomy and comfortable for our family of 7adults, 2 kids and 1 baby. Sue and Bob thought of everything that guests might need during their stay! The pool and hot tub were the highlights of the house- I was nervous because it was a pretty cool day when we arrived, but the pool was warm and refreshing. We had several fun days exploring San Diego, but it was hard to leave the house because we enjoyed it so much! The location was perfect- the street was quiet and private, but it was a quick walk to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. The week flew by and we weren't ready to leave the next Saturday! Thanks for a great stay!

We rented this house for our family summer beach house vacation - it was GREAT! The house was very clean and spacious - accommodated all our family and their kids. The house had everything we needed and the pool and spa were the best feature. Even though the house was walking distance to the beach and the bay - the pool was very much used and enjoyed by all the family, especially the kids!! We would definitely rent this house again in the future - it exceeded all our expectations and the owners, Sue and Bob were very nice and helpful! Thank you for making us feel right at home - very comfortable and wish we could have stayed longer - a week was not long enough!! Had a GREAT time at your house and hope to make this our yearly beach house!!

We rented this home for a family vacation following the wedding of our daughter who lives in San Diego. We were looking for something roomy enough to accommodate 13 of us with a pool and be within walking distance from the beach. This home exceeded our expectations and we would rent it again in a heartbeat! We have been to Pacific Beach a couple times a year for the last 13 years as this is where our daughter lives so was quite familiar with the area. This location was perfect! It is close to beach boardwalk, bay, grocery stores, bike rental, restaurants, just everything within walking distance. Sue and Bob have this home conveniently equipped with anything you could possibly need, pool, beach and sand toys, cooler on wheels, smaller coolers, beach chairs, beach cart on wheels, beach towels, roomy gas grill, fire ring, ample seating on deck and around pool. The pool is heated and hot tub also perfect! The kitchen is equipped with all your needs and spices and condiments so you don't have to run out and get things you would normally use. The house is very roomy and comfy not to mention the different options of lighting in the evenings! We actually went online and ordered groceries prior to our stay from Vons on Garnet and had them deliver our groceries for a token delivery charge of $9. First time is free! We hated to leave, as we highly recommend this property. Bob and Sue were attentive to our needs prior to and easy to contact with questions during our stay.

Perfect for Multi Generational Family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using a VRBO property. This house exceeded our lofty expectations. It was clean and extremely comfortable allowing our family to feel right at home immediately. Everything was in working order, clean and easy to use with clear instructions on usage. The master bath was extraordinary in size and accommodation. The beds were comfy. The kitchen had everything necessary to prepare and serve a banquet. Even without AC, there were ceiling fans and windows that allowed a cool westerly breeze to allow circulation in the upstair and downstair bedrooms. The pool was an instant hit with our younger family members and the patio and its furniture was more than enough to accommodate our large multi generational family. The neighborhood was quiet. The location is within easy walking distance to the beach and bay making this home the ideal vacation retreat. The pool shed had in it every conceivable pool and beach toy and equipment one could expect to use. Parking was not a problem even over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. The owners were not intrusive. They responded immediately to any questions we had before and during our stay. Thank you Bob and Sue for our magical week in San Diego and for an unforgettable experience.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for our wedding weekend, there was 12 of us. The home was wonderful. The walk to the beach and pool/spa were perfect. The home doesn't have AC and it got warm at night but no deal breaker. The third room upstairs wasn't the best place to sleep because it gets so warm. There was a great deal of toys, coolers, beach towels, and umbrella to take to the beach. Overall the home is in a perfect location. We went to the beach every day and went to the zoo.

Wonderful vacation home for our beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Twelve of us stayed quite comfortably in this well equipped home. The location was ideal for enjoying both the bay and ocean beaches and all the necessities - toys, umbrellas, cooler, beverage jugs, and beach towels - were there for our convenience. The rental process was handled smoothly and the binder of information provided at the house answered all of our questions. The pool and hot tub were so much fun for 8 adults and 4 kids to enjoy together, we almost regretted our outings to nearby attractions. We definitely regretted having to leave!
