About Mike Murphy
I'm very proud of this home and it's well kept grounds and enjoy the compliments that I always receive from guests. I'm only a phone call / text away if you have any questions.
Mike Murphy purchased this House in 2010
Why Mike Murphy chose Mount Helix
VALUE!....Sure, you can find many other properties for less than our rate, but when you add up the generous size of both the house and grounds AND take into account all of the unique amenities we have to offer, it equates to a lot of vacation rental for the money :)
What makes this House unique
Not many properties can match the entertainment options that our home offers.....A Basketball court, putting green, Offroad R/C track (with cars included!) Slot machine, Ping-pong table and an Ultra Hi-Def 4K TV with Dolby Surround sound are just some of the reasons we have had guests from literally all over the world stay!

Great home with all the right stuff for a big group
Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the fun things to do around the house. Clean as well
Perfect Weekend -Pefect House We love this home!
Everything about this home is perfect. Newly remodeled and perfectly decorated and furnished. We completely enjoyed ourselves. House has all that we needed, Kitchen was ideal and all new. Game Room was fun and bedrooms large in size and bathrooms new and lovely.
The backyard is was so much fun, the guys love the putting green and courts and we loved the deck and the stunning city views at night and day.
I was in contact with the owner on a couple of things and he was quick to respond and easy to communicate with. He checked in with me about the house if there was anything we needed to ask. I really appreciated his quick response and I think he will appreciate how we took good care of his home while we were there. (Thank you MM!)
We hope to come back about the same time next year and this is the first house we will look towards renting!
It was a perfect weekend!
Everything was in pristine condition when we arrived. Our kids were thrilled about the RC track, our oldest is an enthusiast and brought his own RC car. Kitchen was supplied with all the pots and pans we needed to cook the fish we caught and to bake the cake to celebrate two birthdays. We stayed for four nights with our three kids and both sets of grandparents (and my parents’ golden retriever). There was plenty of space for all of us to dine as everyone was able to chose indoors or outside.
The only issue (and this is in no way a slight against the house) was that my mother has difficulty going up and down stairs and there are not handrails. The stairways are narrow so it would not seem necessary for most folks, my mom was the exception. We know now to look with more to accommodate her need in the future. Like I said, this does not diminish our appreciation of the home, but it may need to be noted for future guests.
Mike was a responsive host if we had questions.
We would definitely check availability if we were to revisit the Dan Diego area.
We boarded our dog at Bark Park while we were here.
Thank you Mike! The house and location were perfect.
We loved this home! It was in a great location and the home is Amazing! Our family loved everything about it. The rooms are perfect, layout of the house and the remodel that was done really makes it feel like home! Plenty of room and the views are amazing!! Definitely will be recommending to Family and Friends. Also, we plan on returning in the future. Mike the owner was very nice and replies promptly.
Family Retreat in La Mesa
We brought our family with two little ones and found this home a great setting. Play areas in the house and back yard were enjoyed continually by the 3 and 4 year olds. The main floor is roomy, well equipped, and comfortable furniture. We liked having the bedrooms separate from the main living area with all its activity. Mike, the owner, is very helpful and stays in contact although we had zero issues to solve.
1. Stairs, stairs, stairs. Not so good for those of us with limited mobility. I had ankle fusion, not scheduled, and was on crutches or a scooter.
2. Most rentals have limited TV like this house with only local channels. Being a tennis and basketball nut, I was disappointed in missing the semifinals and finals of a big tennis tournament and many of the NCAA mens B-ball games. It was probably good for me not to watch CNN or MSNBC. No inspiration there.
RA, Wenatchee, WA
My family were in aww the minute we walked in the door. It was everything that it discribed. The house was clean and had everything we needed. There was so much room for all 10 of us. We walked in to the rules and cute juices for the little one.
The older kids enjoyed the basketball court and the ping pong table. The RC cars and putting green were awesome as well. The little one found the hidden toy box and had a blast.The rooms were spacious and clean and there was fresh linens. We loved that the property was pet friendly. The mornings were amazing to sit on the deck as a family overlook the beautiful back yard and the view of mount helix. The susnset was amazing as we were cooking dinner.
It was an overall great experience and I would definitely recommend and go back to rent from Mike again.
Again we turely appreciate the hospitality that was provided.
Mt. Helix is one of the most desirable, picturesque and unique communities in East San Diego County. There are no cookie-cutter, tract homes here. Each property is unique and all are situated on large 1/2 acre lots, so people come here for privacy and to feel like they have escaped the city below. A variety of urban shopping centers are only about a 2 mile scenic drive away however, so you get the best of both worlds!
