About the property

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

This is a 1943 beach bungalow that has been completely remodeled inside and out with a designers flair. With its easy breezy relaxed beach decor and solid wood floors you are truly transported back to simpler times the minute you walk through the doors. The kitchen has a light and bright retro beachy theme with an authentic 1950's O'Keefe and Merritt stove/oven with a center heating element to make your favorite pancakes on. However all the modern day technology is available too, ie. 46' LCD screen with cable, DVD, and dvr available plus wifi so you can bring your own laptop. The new bathroom features a claw foot tub/shower to relax in after a day at the beach with an endless supply of on demand hot water already set at a comfortable 115 degrees. All you have to do is flip the handle.

The front yard has been professionally landscaped including a 'sandy beach' area with two Adirondack chairs so you can view the endless parade of sailboats and windsurfers. The back yard is fenced in to provide safety for your children away from the street. The back yard has a small grassy area, hot tub, sunning deck, patio and bbq.

If you choose to do nothing but read on your vacation we've taken care of that too. There is a small library of paperback books available for you to choose from. And if you bring a book you've already read and no longer want feel free to participate in the book exchange. Take a book/leave a book.

There are a few restaurants within a few minutes including a short walk over the bridge to the Barefoot Beach Club where you can enjoy your food while observing the sharks and fish swimming along in their enclosed waterway that surrounds the outside eating patio.

About Terri Miller

I love having a place in San Diego I can go to any time and love sharing it with other families who love staying in a home away from home. The minute I walk through the door I immediately feel relaxed and know I'm on vacation. I have a ton of books there and have fun just picking one out to read each time I go. But anything I want to do seems so accessible there. I can watch the sail boats right outside my door every day or rent one if I want to do it myself. I can kayak. Or take a bike ride down to the beach but I don't have to put up with the parking problems. At night I can watch the fireworks at Sea World from my front yard. I love it there and want other people to enjoy it too.

Terri Miller purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Terri Miller chose San Diego County

Location. And views. San Diego is a fun, active community with the best weather in the country. We are so close to all things San Diego. Right on the waters of Mission Bay in Pacific Beach, access to boardwalk just across the street. A short drive to downtown, Coronado Island, LaJolla, Sea World, the list goes on. The best of everything. A quiet neighborhood within minutes of the freeways and beaches. A true getaway.

What makes this bungalow unique

It's cozy and comfortable. Great views. It's been recently renovated from top to bottom, inside and out. The back yard has a bbq and hot tub. So after a long day at the beach, which is nearby, I look forward to relaxing in my own back yard. The boardwalk to the beach is right outside my door where I can ride my bike or walk my dog.

Lovely Bay Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Terri's house over our spring break with our three teen boys. The home is well equipped both inside and out. We enjoyed being able to bike and walk the bay path which is just across the street from the house. The large backyard was a great hangout place even with the foggy weather we had. There's a great yogurt place and Trader Joe's just up the street from the house. The walk to Mission Beach is fun. We liked that we were able to walk to Mission Beach and Belmont Park, but the house was away from the crowds. There is a bit of road noise at the house, but we live in a neighborhood with no road noise, so this might not be an issue for most people. Overall, the house is a great place to stay and we'd spend our break there again. Thanks, Terri!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. Thank you Jennifer. I'm very happy you enjoyed yourselves. Some of the road noise, in part, was due to an increase in traffic as a result of a detour around road construction off Ingraham Street. Fortunately, it is an inconvenient but temporary situation. Im sorry you had to deal with that. Perhaps next visit the situation will be improved. :) Sincerely, Terri

Enjoy your time with a true home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage that feels very homey! It is a good location for all the things we wanted to do. We relaxed, enjoyed the scenery, ate well at home and in restaurants. This was a great place if you are visiting family and you can have a wonderful home base. Coming home to the hot tub was a great bonus too!

Homey bungalow with perks!

  • 5 of 5

Though the weather was not the greatest, this gem was! I was traveling with my 2 adult children and had a wonderful time. We all said we will be back (hopefully in better weather). Three bedrooms, hot tub, washer/dryer, cozy adirondack chairs overlooking the bay, what more could you ask for??? Saved a lot of money by using the grill in the back yard. Well decorated with antiques and smart little touches. Thank you Terri for your hospitality and for sharing your home with us.

Great stay and location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Bungalow. My wife and I with 3 college age children enjoyed it. The previous reviews and house description were spot on. Having access to bikes and the close proximity to bike trails on the bay and ocean was fantastic. Back yard and hot tub was great! We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to San Diego.
