We are America's First and Only Vacation Home & Breakfast as we have built a new standard of hospitality: vacation home AND breakfast! That means that you get the privacy of an exclusive use vacation home and the exceptional service and hospitality of a bed and breakfast as we custom stock the refrigerator for you based upon your breakfast requests! The best thing about Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast is that it is completely custom! Aunt Sally's Vacation Home started as a Bed & Breakfast in June 2013 thus we wanted to maintain the custom breakfast option for guests but in a 'self-serve' way so we decided to create a 21st century hospitality product known as a 'Vacation Home & Breakfast' which has not been done before in the U.S.! So we offer a breakfast of your choice with a completely stocked refrigerator with the items you have requested (eggs, bacon, waffles, sausage, yogurt, fruit, bagels, juices, breads, vegetables, hash browns, etc). And if you want anything in particular during your stay we will make sure the home has what you need! For example past guests have requested such items as a fire pit, juicer, certain specialty brands of coffee, various flavors of juices, etc and Aunt Sally's will make sure the items are there upon arrival!
Also Aunt Sally's is the only vacation home in the country that offers a Sleep Comfort Zone preferences service. We collect your personal sleep comfort zone preferences (i.e. how you like the room setup for a good night's sleep) and we match each of the bedrooms to your desired preference. For example the couple in the master bedroom like it very dark and quiet but the guests in the other rooms prefer some light with a little background noise. Whatever your preferences are we will configure the room to match them as if you were sleeping in your own room at home!
And the home has everything a visitor needs to enjoy a clean, comfortable, safe and peaceful visit to San Diego. The home has the following amenities:
The master bedroom has a private bath, private entrance and includes a private patio for drinks, coffee or breakfast. The private patio also has a fire pit (thanks to a previous guest) which is perfect for cool nights. The master bedroom is 12' X 17' and has AC, Sirius/XM satellite radio, DirecTV, closet space and a fairly new KING size bed just purchased in July 2013! The bathroom includes sink, toilet, shower and extra vanity area as well as extra toiletries just like the fancy hotels (shampoo, soap, conditioner, lotion, lint brush, mouthwash, etc)
The spare bedroom has a QUEEN size bed, desk, open & empty closet, DirecTV and beautiful view of the backyard. I also stock this room with extra toiletries in case you forgot something!
This bedroom has a queen size bed and also doubles as the concierge office. It has desk, printer, sliding glass door to the backyard, rail lighting and plenty of maps, brochures and information on San Diego to help you enjoy your vacation stay at Aunt Sally's. It also has a solid core room door for additional privacy.
The refrigerator will be stocked with any breakfast items you request: eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, fruit, waffles, juices, yogurt, etc. Just let us know what you would like before checking in and we will stock the fridge for you!!! We will also have a variety of drinks (bottled water, juice, etc) and snacks for you to take on the go when you leave the house for sightseeing!
Check in whenever you like! Just let us know when you will arrive and we make arrangements for you to get inside the home and leave instructions on the home basics (securing the home, night lights, WiFi access, laundry, garage access, etc)
All rooms feature SOLID core room doors that blocks out a lot of house noise for additional privacy, comfort and tranquility.
Clean linen and PLENTY of towels for your stay.
Plenty of appliances, dishes, silverware, etc for cooking meals. If you need anything else just let us know!
Maps, brochures, city tour information, directions and a San Diego welcome on how to enjoy San Diego like a local!
Much HIGHER cleaning standards than the hotels as the beds contain Protect-A-Bed protective coverings (protects against bed bugs, dust mites, & moisture), the comforter and mattress cover are washed after EACH guest, sheets are fairly new and changed after each guest, the bathroom is cleaned and sanitized after each guest and the dishes, glasses, silverware and cups are sanitized in the dishwasher after each use.
In order to keep my cleaning and preparation costs low I must have a few basic house rules:
1. No smoking inside the home or outside on the property.
2. No pets (sorry I do LOVE dogs but the cleaning and care is too much).
3. No unauthorized overnight guests.
4. Maximum of 6 guests per stay. Exceptions are made for small children who will sleep in a crib (which is provided) or with parents.
5. Finally, come happy and leave HAPPIER! My mom would love this one! :)
And finally your stay includes a promise that you will enjoy Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast as if you were family! :)

About Jeffery Broussard
Hello I am Jeffery! I have lived in San Diego (same neighborhood) since 2002 and have owned my home (aka Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast today) since 2005. I am originally from Sacramento, attended college at UC Davis and also lived in Santa Clara, CA for 10 years. I enjoy traveling, gardening, computers and the Internet and most of all love inviting friends, family and guests to enjoy my home! Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast is named after my late mother Eldora (aka Aunt Sally) so you can expect EXCEPTIONAL hospitality because you will be treated as if my mom is hosting you! If you do a search on "Aunt Sally's Vacation Home And Breakfast" you will find numerous reviews, photos, comments and dozens of links about America's newest and most unique vacation home concept...VACATION HOME AND BREAKFAST!!!
Jeffery Broussard purchased this House in 1960
Why Jeffery Broussard chose Clairemont Mesa
Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast is located in the middle of San Diego County so you are never more than 30 minutes from any location you may want to visit while in San Diego. Our location near most major freeways in San Diego make it ideal for vacation travelers who may want to go from the Convention Center to Legoland or from Petco Park to the San Diego Safari Park. My home also still has the standard neighborhood charm with most modern amenities you would expect while traveling.
What makes this House unique
The most unique benefit of Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast is the customized nature of our service. We are San Diego's only 'Vacation Home & Breakfast' which is a term we invented since we combine the best of a vacation home and bed & breakfast all in one product! Aunt Sally's started as a standard bed & breakfast but we wanted to also cater to vacation home travelers who wanted to rent the entire home. And since we already had a reputation as an exceptional breakfast place we decided to be the only vacation home that stocks your requested breakfast items as a gesture of warm hospitality to welcome you to our home! Thus we stock the refrigerator with the breakfast items you have requested and will accommodate your stay with any other requests you make to improve the quality of your visit. If you need anything just ask and if we don't have it we will make buy it and make sure it is here before your arrival! That is the true Aunt Sally's way of hospitality that my mom established with family, friends and guests over 50 years ago! So welcome to San Diego's most unique home away experience now known as Aunt Sally's Vacation Home & Breakfast!!!

Great personal service
Jeffery was easy to work with and always just a phone call away. The stocked fridge with our grocery list is an added plus. I needed to print out tickets for a Padres/Dodgers game and the printer was out of ink. Jeffery had new ink installed within a half hour and we were on our way. The only reason I am not rating it a 5 is because of the fact that due to the year round cool climate in San Diego, there is no central a/c in the home (as are most homes in San Diego). We happened to visit when there was a small heatwave which made it a little warm even in the evening which made it a little uncomfortable to sleep. We had to have all the fans on which made it a little loud throughout the night. We did have plenty of room, however, with 3 bedrooms and 6 people. Close to shopping and dining and easy highway access. I would recommend the stay as long as there aren't any heatwaves in your forecast.
Very Convenient and Unbelievably Well Equipped.
Jeffery is the best host. The house has everything you forgot to bring on your vacation and so much more.
And when you can't find something (that you are sure is there) Jeffery emails you back very quickly.
The house is just off the 805 Freeway which makes it easy to get everywhere.
The neighborhood is quiet and close to shopping, restaurants and everything else you need.
The property was old and outdated but comfortable enough. The location was great.
The property and concept was very different from anything we've ever rented before. Not being able to put dishes away in the tiny kitchen was awkward. The pans we used from the stove drawer had crumbs and food in them. Beds were great.
I really enjoyed hosting Mary and her family for their family holiday vacation visit to San Diego. They were very nice guests and easy to work with before and during their stay.
My ad clearly mentions that my home is an older home and my pictures are VERY accurate so no one should be surprised when they arrive at my home. Our rates, service and value have always been well received since most families pay almost twice as much to stay in a newer home. My rates are targeted towards the budget conscious family who want a nice, clean home that is not overpriced.
Finding crumbs and food in the pans is exactly why we do not allow guests to restock dishes that they have cleaned for sanitation reasons. You really do not want to stay at a place where the dishes have been cleaned and stocked by previous guests. Thus, all dishes are cleaned by our housekeeping staff so that they can be sanitized in the dishwasher. For example our housekeepers are required to wash their hands thoroughly before even handling clean dishes and must re-wash any and all dishes cleaned by guests before placing them back into the cabinets. This kitchen sanitation policy has been proven to reduce complaints of finding dirty dishes when guests are staying at our property. The guests have many options which include leaving clean dishes in the dish drain, running dishes in the dishwasher or using the many paper plates, paper cups, paper bowls and plastic silverware if they prefer not to wash dishes at all.
As someone with a safe food handling certification I am required to practice the best sanitation procedures and not allowing guests to restock their own cleaned dishes is a best practice acknowledged by industry experts.
5 Star Hospitality
Aunt Sally's was exactly as promised. Jeffery made communication easy, ensuring everything was taken care of. The place was clean, the beds were cozy, and the custom breakfast experience made it feel a little more like home. My family and I had a wonderful time in San Diego, thanks in large part to Aunt Sally's. Thanks, Jeffery.
Wonderful home to spend Christmas with family
My family and I were pleasantly surprised at our stay at Aunt Sally's. The breakfast food and snacks were plentiful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. If the weather had been warmer, we would have been able to sit outside and enjoy the orange trees and flowers and grill. It is a great central location. It is convenient to the airport, the world famous San Diego Zoo, shopping centers, beaches and restaurants. The owner was very helpful. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Diego area. Thank you Aunt Sally for a pleasurable experience.
An excellent host and a warm and inviting home. Aunt Sally's had all the comforts of home.
This was an incredible find for us. My wife and I, daughter-in law and twin granddaughters were coming to San Diego to meet our son coming off a 8 month deployment in the Navy. We also planned to spend Thanksgiving there. So we wanted something that host our family and provide a nice atmosphere for a Thanksgiving dinner.
Aunt Sally's exceeded our expectations . All the amenities and comforts of home.
The special touch of having the refrigerator fully stocked with the breakfast foods of our choice just added to our incredible stay. Whenever we are in the San Diego area we will definitely stay at Aunt Sally's.
Thank You Jeffery for an incredible stay.
