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!!

Quiet Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Endless options offered - relax poolside, escape the sun under the tiki hut or covered hot tub, entertain at the grill bar, outdoor bar, or around the firepit. Were able to visit the many tourist spots around San Diego because of how central this location is, but always enjoyed starting/ending our day back at the casa! Very amenable owners who took time out of their day to review how everything works upon our arrival.

Perfectly located San Diego home, with a resort in the backyard!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 night stay. Our goals for our visit were to spend time at the beaches and Sea World. San Diego Dreamin' was close to everything and perfect. Our 5 children loved using Alexa and the giant TVs in all the bedrooms. The kids also used the perfect temperature pool every morning and evening, I think it was their favorite part of the trip.

The home is located close to the highway, but the water features on the koi pond and pool definitely drown out the noise. The owners met us at check in and were warm and inviting. We had no problems during our stay, but I feel that they would be quick to help if we did. The kitchen is as very well appointed with everything from muffin tins to a waffle maker. They also had a large assortment of pantry items, spices, and condiments.

We loved the area beaches, and the owners had everything we needed to really enjoy the beaches including beach toys, coolers, and chairs.

We would not hesitate to book this rental again, and would recommend to everyone.

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property. The owners have thought of everything. From having plenty of towels for this family of 5 to having a blender by the pool to having the waterfall by the pool, this property was amazing. It was really nice that the owners representative met us at the property and explained a few things. You dont usually get that. The pool was the perfect temperature for our kids and they could have swim in it the whole day. Even our 4 year old enjoyed swimming on the shelf that is in the pool and the owners provided floaties. The grill outside was amazing and it was really nice to be able to just stay home and eat instead of worrying about going places. The property is located near the highway but during the day the noise is blocked by the waterfall and pond and at night, each of the rooms has a fan so that also blocked out all the noise. We live in a really quite suburb and the noise didnt bother us at all. We used the washer and dryer and therefore came home with so much less laundry than usual. Overall, when we come back to San Diego again, we will rent this place again!!

Backyard is your own resort!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and well equipped for our family. We spent most of our time in the backyard. It was very quiet and private. Owners easily reachable and very accommodating. Thanks for allowing us to use your home for our vacation on the west coast.

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.
