In the evening turn on the ambient landscape lighting, light the tiki torches, stream some music from your phone, and slip into the jetted spa hot tub with groovy colored lights. After you have relaxed away your day of sightseeing, sit around the lava rock fire pit and enjoy the temperate San Diego evening before retiring to one of the home’s luxuriously comfortable beds for a blissful night’s sleep.

About The Owner

I have enjoyed my home for many years customizing the house and back yard to my liking. Now I'd like to try living in some other areas of the city and let others enjoy my home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Clairemont

It is very central to all areas of San Diego. I have always loved living in Clairemont.

What makes this house unique

My favorite thing is listening to some music while going for a nighttime swim.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our guest entered such a nice review in our book (we are fortunate to have so many good comments in our book actually!) that I wanted to share this one.....


This was such an amazing place to come together a a family. The location was great...on the days that we wanted to venture out we never had far to go. On the days we wanted to get some R&R we were more than happy to hang out here.

What really surprised me was that on the VRBO website this place seemed "too good to be true"...and then when you get here it surpasses that already high expectation you had in mind... and then you realize that the website & photos really don't prepare you for how truly amazing this place is!

My favorite part of the property was the privacy of the yard...totally not what I was expecting for a place within city limits. There were a couple of times I didn't even do my hair/make-up...what a treat!

An Excellent Vacation Home for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO in the past and this is by far the best experience we have ever had! We stayed in January of 2015 and could not have asked for a better place to stay. My Husband, Father and our two kids had a blast! From the time we booked our stay up to our arrival, the communication was excellent. Dave and Leslie think of everything to make your stay comfortable, by everything, I mean everything! A welcome basket and personal note upon arriving. A tour through the home so we knew how to use everything and just a sincere warm welcome! There is a well stocked kitchen with spices and cookware that made meal preparation easy. I had a horrible cold while we were travelling and ran out of medicine, there was cold medicine to cover me that night. Extra toilet paper, a ton of towels, toiletries (like shampoo and body wash), ziplock bags, maps, menu's, even coupons for nearby places. When you are traveling these are the the things you need but it's really a hassle to buy or pack them, not to mention an added expense, especially if you need one little ziplock bag for airport security. The home was clean and comfortable and we felt like we could call it home for a week. The backyard is an amazing oasis of fun and comfort from the pool to hot tub=pure bliss! WE CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK!!

Family Fun Time

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter, her husband, & 3 kids under 10 years stayed in great house for over a week. The rest of the family (other daughter & husband, & 2 yr old and new baby, and grandma & grandpa) stayed at daughter's nearby home and all 11 of us would meet at "Party House" for meals, pool time, hot tub time, gas firepit smores making, & Bar-B-Que dinners, The kids loved "Alexa" turning wide screen TV on or playing music on demand. Koi pond with 2 waterfalls was great experience for kids feeding the koi. Kitchen had everything plus, including 2 blenders (read blended margarita or smoothie making ) Lots of pots, pans, bowls, storage Tupperware. spices, oils, coffee, teas, etc, etc. Easy access to I-805 off of Balboa Ave. We had a great time here & will for sure want to use again on next visit to San Diego.

Hosts and home were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. The backyard is beautiful!! The owners were the most accommodating host I have dealt with when using a home rental service. If I could, I would give this listing 6 stars.

Kids loved it

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting San Diego Dreamin and it was just as wonderful this time around as it was the last time.

My little granddaughter LOVED feeding the Koi, and the home was warm and welcoming.

Thank you for the sweet little snacks for our arrival.

Cant wait to come back

Perfect little spot to unwind after busy days chasing down our kids

  • 5 of 5

Very hospitable owners who go above and beyond to make sure your comfortable and have everything you need. They provide plenty of extra items from shampoo and conditioner to body soap. Plenty of TP and paper towels. Plenty of extra condiments and spices for cooking. Nice big refrigerator and freezer which has a few condiments in it as well. Great TV’s in all rooms and very comfortable beds and pillows, I would actually love to know where they got the pillows for the master bedroom, best I’ve ever used. The layout of the house is very nice, with a nice big couch, also have plenty of family board games which was real nice.Then you finally get to the private oasis in the backyard, absolutely beautiful clean pool witn a nice relaxing waterfall sourounded by tiki torches and palm trees. Nice relaxing jacuzzi perfect for after long days at SeaWorld and the zoo. Conveniently located about 10 minutes from both. We would definitely stay again. Almost forgot about the gas fire pit which was nice in the evenings and the outside grill was perfect.

Clairemont is centrally located to almost anything you might want to do in San Diego. It's not a beach community, but also escapes the overbearing heat of the inland communities during the summertime. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to just about anywhere in San Diego including beaches, downtown, SeaWorld, etc. The house itself is in a family type neighborhood, not a young party beach area (although it's only a short drive to such a place. :)

Balboa drive has almost everything you need from major grocery stores, restaurants, Target, Home Depot. 24 Hour Fitness, bars, etc.

The house is close to both the 163 and 805 freeways and major streets which makes it easy to get around.
