About Brenda Campbell Hubbard

The Hubbard Family is thrilled to have purchased Jewell Street in June 2015, the culmination of a long term dream to own a property in Southern California after living abroad for 17 years in England. Growing up in Orange County, California, Brenda, one of seven siblings, has pined to be back in California, away from the grey and gloom of England, and reunited with family and friends. Jewell Street is an answer to prayers and fulfillment of her English husband, Andrew's, promise to one day have a property in California. The family of 5 fell in love with Jewell Street on first sight on a recent visit and a dream became reality. A family affair, Brenda's brother and nephew completely gutted the property giving it a new contemporary beach feel. Still living full time outside of London, England, the Hubbards, are pleased to share their beach retreat with loving families and friends to enjoy and share the many wonderful attractions of San Diego's Pacific Beach.

Although they would love to spend all of their time here, with three children in full time education in England, Jewell Street will be available to vacationers year round with exception of the few weeks a year it can be used for holidays and festivities in California.

The family's long term goal is to spend more and more time in San Diego after the kids are in university. Until then, help the Hubbard's continue their dream by making their home your home while you are in San Diego.

Why Brenda Campbell Hubbard chose Crown Point

Jewell Street is the perfect location in San Diego. A fantastic family residential neighborhood, Crown Point, is perfectly located to enjoy all of the amenities San Diego has to offer. Walking distance to the Bay, and a cycle to the beach make Jewell Street ideal to enjoy all of the outdoor activities our family loves, from cycling, running, paddle boarding, kayaking and sailing. The climate is perfect year round, so no matter what time of year, you are guaranteed lovely warm weather. Vacationing here as a child, San Diego holds many memories! The outdoor life style perfectly suits the demands of our family!

What makes this house unique

Many bidders offered to buy Jewell Street when it was on the market. Fortunately for us, the owner looked beyond the developers wishing to renovate and turn the property for a quick profit and accepted the offer of a family wishing to slowly transition their lives back to the USA. The elderly seller was pleased that our young twin daughters would be able to enjoy the playhouse, situated in the rear garden, which her grandchildren often enjoyed. The cottage feel of the house with its white picket fence was so homey and inviting. We had a vision for creating a real home with character, yet a more contemporary beach cottage. The house now enjoys a covered front porch furnished with a rocking bench seat to watch the humming birds or chat with the neighbors. However, the attached decking with porch swing and al fresco dining which enters into the spacious open living plan was the epitome of the beach living. We just love the house and think you will too!

This house was amazing! I really don’t know where to start! We were welcomed with a gift basket and well organized information to help with our stay. The kids LOVED the play house. The room above the garage felt like a break from everything else in the world. The porch swing was another favorite relaxing spot. The list goes on! We will definitely plan to stay here again!

Owner's Response: WOW! Thanks so much Jessica! That is exactly the feedback we like to hear! I am so pleased you loved the house. We also especially love the loft space and views although our teenage kids generally monopolize that space! On the positive note, the main house is quiet and peaceful with them upstairs! Thanks and please do come back!

Great location on the bay

  • 4 of 5

This home is well appointed and well maintained. Two bathrooms, especially one convenient to the sleeping area over the garage, would improve its ability to sleep 6 people.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your thoughts. We totally agree that a bathroom in the loft space would be a bonus! However, for most of our guests, the eclectic nature of the beach bungalow with the utility bathroom/shower room in the garage seems to work for holidays! The second bathroom in the garage is great for post beach showers and adds extra capacity to the main bathroom when hosting larger numbers.

Beautiful and Inviting Home

We had a great time in the Crown Point area. The house was lovely and well equipped for our needs. The beach is a block away and the loft above the garage has a view of the Bay. Safe and quiet area. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Lisa
