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!!!

Thank you so much for the great review and also for leaving the house so nice and clean.
Great vacation rental!
We stayed in this house for 9 days with 2 adults and 3 children. The house was clean and well dusted (I had told the owner ahead of time that two of us had dust allergies). It's well stocked and in a great San Diego location. You're in the city but it doesn't feel like it because it's tucked back in a quiet neighborhood with canyons and trees. Although we didn't have any issues with the house, it's nice having the owner next door. The house has a lot of room and a nice layout. My 13 year old son loved having his own "man cave" in the downstairs bedroom.
What a great place!
We had three generations on vacation together from 8-70. With a total of 9 we thought we might be crowded but there was plenty of room. Our 8 year old granddaughter thought the hammock was magical. The neighborhood was quiet and lured me out for morning walks.
Larry is a great host. Our flight was very early and he made sure we could drop off our luggage so we did not have to take it around town. Most of the things we wanted to see were very close. We have rented several short term rentals and this one was stocked better than any of the others. Plenty of towels, pillows, entertainment and kitchen items. We only saw part of what we wanted to see so we hope to come back and stay again. Ernie
Thank you for your kind words and wonderful review Ernie. I would definitely look forward to hosting you and your family again!
The house is private, secluded and private. Yet is really close to everything
Larry was attentive to our needs and personally showed us around
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 !
Thank you so much for those very nice comments Deborah.
I hope that I will have the pleasure of hosting you again soon! Larry
Super Neat Retreat
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.
Thank you so much for those wonderful comments about the house. I have purchased the a whisk and a garlic press for your next visit!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Very quiet, relaxing
and secluded area.
