About the property

Spacious 2 Bed. 1 bath. sleeps 4 adults, or families up to 6. Crown Point.

Wonderful 2 bed, 1 bath bay / beach house with large garage and drive, fenced garden accommodating up to 6. This beach house has been completely remodeled to a high standard with a beautiful European style bathroom, and a funky original 1950s kitchen. We’re just a block from the bay and a short ride to the Ocean. Our location is the perfect place for people that want to be close to everything but also want to retreat to a quieter more peaceful neighborhood to relax and sleep.

We're very well suited to young families with the beach on Mission bay being so close with a children's play area and bathrooms. Also perfect for couples and groups of friends being so near to lots of great restaurants and bars.

Mission beach is on your doorstep, where you can people watch, take in the scenery, or take a leisurely bike ride to Pacific Beach and Mission Beach a short ride away, with this location you are never far from anything. At night walk down to the bay and watch the fantastic fireworks across the bay at Seaworld.

We supply a fully equipped kitchen, along with coin laundry facilities, high speed internet, and cable TV. We have a queen size bed in each bedroom and a sofa sleeper in the sitting room.

Sea world and our world famous zoo are very close by, along with Balboa Park and downtown a short taxi or car ride away, public transport is very close and gives access to the entire city and beyond.

About Dan Docherty

Originally from the UK we came to USA in 1998 our first stop was Detroit and stayed there for over 8 years, contrary to Detroit's reputation, we really enjoyed living there and had a lot of fun. After that we moved to Seattle were we lived for 6 years, we loved the mountains and camping and the vibrant downtown. We’ve traveled all over the US and loved everywhere we’ve been, but then we discovered San Diego, and after living here for 3 years now it would be very hard to leave. We love being in a big city with a small town feel, the close proximity to everything, the friendliness of the people, and the year round fantastic climate. Our aim is to provide a good quality, fairly priced beach vacation home for our guests to enjoy, and we very much hope you’ll want to come back and stay with us again.

Excellent location, bright and spacious beach/bay getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Dan's beach house in October. The location is excellent - easily accessible to freeway and quick ride to downtown, old town and we enjoyed walking to local restaurants and even to Mission beach. We loved how easy it was to access the bay walking path and we took advantage of the beach bikes to explore the entire area. A+ for location and so nice to be outside the fray of Mission beach.

The house is spacious, bright, clean and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and a nice dining area to enjoy breakfast and dinner. Loved the spacious closets in the bedroom which allowed us to tuck away our luggage and more than enough room (and hangers!) to store our goods.

Dan the owner was great with his pre-arrival communication and also quickly responding to our inquiries during our stay. Great service!

The only critique is the bed could use an upgrade as the mattress is a bit soft and sags slightly in the middle. Overall a great place and I would enjoy staying again at this property. Highly recommend!

Thanks for a lovely stay Dan!

Wonderful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My mom and sisters came to visit from out of town and this was the perfect cottage. Walking distance to restaurants and the bay and a short drive from the local grocery store while providing enough distance from the chaos of downtown PB.

Perfect PB Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in April. We were able to walk to the beach and to restaurants, yet the house is in a quiet part of town. It was clean and had everything we needed. My only suggestion would be to add some hooks in the bathroom or bedrooms for towels. Looking forward to the next time we can stay here.

Overall excellent time had by all

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay, the house location was perfect close to everything and kids loved playing in the front yard. The house may have been a bit small for us (we had 4 kids and 2 adults) but otherwise we have only positive things to say.
