What a great place to spend Christmas. The house, as the previous reviewer states, is actually better than the website would lead you to believe. It's very spacious, with a classy, understated beach theme that balances between feeling like you're at home and in a very different place at the same time.
There were 10 in my group, 6 adults and 4 teenagers and everyone seemed to very much enjoy themselves. Those with too much energy were up early and out riding the bikes (that come with the house) out along the beach trail that is a lot closer than I had thought. Those of us that are lazier found the beds very accommodating for sleeping in late.
As a group we are very big into cooking and the kitchen was perfect for multiple people moving in and around preparing food. The living room is also very comfortable with a nice couch and a large TV that made for great movie watching in the evenings.
There is a small convenience store ~200 yards away, and restaurants not too far away. We would drive 5-10 minutes and try a different cuisine each time - the food there is great.
Of course the beaches near Crown Point were all great, and a couple of us took our fly-rods along and caught spotted bass just walking along the shoreline of the bay.
There is so much to see and do nearby that everyone had a blast no matter what their interests, from wine tours on the train and shopping, to fishing and exploring water-ways.
I'd recommend this house to anyone traveling in a group of 12 or less - more people could fit but you would be making up beds all over the open floor spaces. If/when we travel to San Diego again I will change my other travel arrangements just to stay at this house again.
Oh, and Eric and Yvonne were great to work with - they were very quick to answer any questions and while they left us to ourselves we knew that they were but a phone call away and would help in any way they could.
