This house is an ENTERTAINER’S DREAM. Backyard comes to life at night with 40 lights softly illuminating beautiful rock features. Fountains imbedded in rocks create cascading waterfalls throughout rock features. Relax on the lounge chairs or have some fun on the 25 foot waterslide that wraps around spa. There is state of the art pool/spa saline technology (no chlorine) with digital multi-colored pinwheel lights to create the perfect ambiance. All features controlled with touch of a button via the wireless remote. Plenty of outdoor seating on loungers and chairs. The backyard has a large gas BBQ for afternoon or evening grilling.

About Quinn Smith

My wife and I purchased this home because we love the location and the view. It is truly amazing and we never get tired of it. We have 2 kids ages 8 and 10. We love the fact that we are minutes away from the beautiful features that San Diego has to offer - the beach, Mission Bay, Sea World, downtown San Diego, Pacific Beach, shopping centers, and La Jolla Restaurants. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home with visiting families to make their vacation memorable.

Quinn Smith purchased this house in 2005

Why Quinn Smith chose North Pacific Beach

Our home is one of the few properties in La Jolla that has an incredible 180 degree southern view of the city of San Diego, bays, ocean, Coronado island all the way to Mexico. It is a very quiet peaceful location on Soledad Mountain. My wife and I love to take our kids to the beaches like La Jolla Shores, Wind n' Sea, and Pacific Beach or go for walks or bike rides on the Boardwalk in Mission Bay. There are many boat rental places nearby for water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, whale watching, etc. La Jolla is known for its scenic beauty, great beaches, restaurants, bars, entertainment, seal beach/preserve. You can enjoy spectacular views of nightly fireworks from our house all Summer long!

What makes this house unique

We wanted our home to be a private oasis to enjoy as much as the local attractions. Enjoy waking up and stepping into your own private resort including water slides, waterfalls and a deck with gorgeous ocean views. At night BBQ and enjoy the breathtaking tranquility of watching the San Diego sunset and taking a dip in a warm water pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Quinn and Tarah,

We have greatly enjoyed being here in your home and beautiful garden in San Diego. The kids loved the pool and so did we. We have been strolling around the beaches, Sea World and felt so relaxed and happy being here. Thanks again and who knows until next time!!

Sets expectations and exceeds them.

  • 5 of 5

One of the rare times lofty expectations are blown out of the water. The property was everything it appears and more. Property owner was accessible and very pleasant to deal with. Every attendee had a great time. Given the opportunity, I would definitely seek to enjoy another stay in the future.

Great. Had whole family (great grand kids, grand kids, kids, and us) and everyone enjoyed the back yard, the view, the location to the beach and other attractions and how easy the owner was to work with. Would highly recommend it to anyone from couple to family group. Would stay there again.

My family and I love the place! It is a gorgeous home with a spectacular resort like backyard, the kids had a blast in the pool. The home is clean, spacious well furnished, well maintained and stocked with everything you need. The whole house is decorated for the season with 10ft Christmas tree! We really had wonderful time spending our Christmas weekend in this home. Special Thanks to Mr. Smith the owner who is very accommodating , answered my questions and grant my request prior to arriving.

Our entire experience was awesome! Highly recommended.

Outdoor paradise for kids

  • 4 of 5

The pool/backyard area is what made this a dream for our kids. Hours and hours of fun. The home was beautiful too. The basketball hoop in the back was a fun addition too. The lights made it so beautiful at night.
