About Larry Wood

I am a single father, entrepreneur, Audio Visual Rental Company business owner. A graduate of the University of Maryland who moved from Washington, D.C. to San Diego in 1985. I have traveled extensively throughout eastern and western Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and all 50 states. I am a certified scuba diver and avid motorcyclist.

Larry Wood purchased this House in 1995

Why Larry Wood chose Bankers Hill

This property was custom built and has "very good bones". I appreciate the high wooden ceiling in the living room and the open floor plan with mezzanine. It was a great, safe location to raise my son.

What makes this House unique

The home is located in a very special private canyon that is within walking distance to many of San Diego's most iconic sites. And even though the house is less than 2 miles to the airport, it is in an extremely quiet oasis. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

                                                                    We gathered at Larry's retreat for a family wedding. It is tucked into a quiet, private canyon and is a convenient location to drive to downtown, Balboa Park, or to the beach.

                                                                    The house is quiet and well laid out for together-time or private time The kitchen was well stocked and beds and furniture comfortable. Lots of linens/towels and paper goods were provided (not always the case) and much appreciated. Thanks Larry !

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    I hope that I will have the pleasure of hosting you again soon! Larry

                                                                    mike c.

                                                                    Larry & partner Nancy were affable and gracious hosts. The home definitely does NOT have any cosistently overused constant degradation of furnishings and appointments. It felt like we were subletting a beautiful private residence.

                                                                    The gourmet kitchen had nearly everything a serious cook would want (save whisks and a garlic press!) and our group loved the well cared for quality of the bedding and linens.

                                                                    Lots of entertainment options we didn't use much. Very comfy beds. Lots of good quality towels, etc.

                                                                    The location is uniquely private and a canyon trail with no homes is just a short stroll away

                                                                    We've enjoyed many upscale VRBO properties over the years but this one, only a 40' walk or 10-15' drive to the convention center was uniquely the best yet.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Owner's Response:

The owner, Larry, lives next door and was extremely responsive. The house easily fit eight adults and two children. Great deal for everyone involved.
