About Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck

We are the original owners and California natives. We designed the pool/spa and all the landscaping here. Our home has such a good feel to it, our friends call it "Casa De La Vida", house of life. If it's not rented, we love to be here, so we've furnished it with everything one could need. There's so much to see and do here in San Diego and surrounding areas, and we're happy to answer any questions you have and help guide you to maximize your time and enjoyment.

We're both born and raised in California, and have lived in San Diego, Orange County, Palm Springs, and West Hollywood. We work as Superstar Realtors in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Palm Springs. Patrick also does some work in the entertainment industry in Hollywood. Prior to Real Estate, Will owned a Florist in Palm Springs and Patrick worked in sales and healthcare. We love to travel when we can. One of our favorite spots is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We own a timeshare there at a small resort, right on the beach, and we rent that out too! We're happy to be able to share our home with you.

Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck purchased this house in 1999

Why Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck chose Ocean View Hills

The View! It's spectacular day and night. It's an amazing feeling to live above it all and we feel so relaxed's really like a tropical resort! Working in new home construction, we saw many homes as they were being built and always visited new model homes for sale. When we saw this home, it was love at first sight. The view and location could never be replaced. Our friends always told us our home should be a vacation rental, so now it is. We're happy to be able to share this special place!

What makes this house unique

This home has one of the best views in all of San Diego day and night! The view from this house was the main thing we fell in love with, but we also love the 18 foot ceilings in the living room and dining room, the open living environment, and the "ski jump" fireplace. It's such a unique home and with us having designed the pool and the yard, it makes it even more special to us. Because of the ocean breezes, and the view, we're lucky to have glass walls in the backyard! We're so fortunate to have this feature. Mexico is close, so we can go for a real Mexican lunch or dinner and be back for a swim. The beach is only 10-15 minutes away, and we can see if there's coastal fog. We were one of the first homes in this community known as Ocean View Hills. This is definitely a "wow" house and we're very grateful to have this beautiful home to share with you. Thank you.

Amazing Property, Wonderful Hosts and Incredible Pool!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a week at this incredible property. I can assure you the pictures listed do not do this property justice. My family and I met in San Diego to celebrate our mother's birthdays. There were 6 adults and one child. There was more than enough room in the house to accommodate all of us comfortably without feeling like we were all on top of each other the whole time.

To begin, we arrived to a delightful greeting from Will. He walked us through the entire house and answered any questions we might have. The house was so well stocked! There were even beverages in the fridge, food in the pantry and fruit in a bowl. After a day of traveling with a cranky 5 year old, I can't tell you how grateful I was to see a box of macaroni and cheese and a can of green beans in the pantry. Not being able to make it to the store yet to get our food for the week, we were still able to feed him and get him off to bed. I'm sure other parents can agree... that was an absolute savior that evening!

Our week was perfect, other than unseasonably cold weather. Even with the cold weather, we spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub. We are so thankful we paid the extra to have the pool heated! It was (without a doubt) worth it! Aside from the pool, the outdoor space was perfect for our larger group. My 5 year old spent hours on end exploring the beautiful, well manicured yard, looking for snails, lizzards, grubs, etc... All the fun things and creatures we do not have in CO. We were also told we were welcome to the lemons growing from the huge lemon tree in the back. Nothing like fresh lemonade on that beautiful patio overlooking the bay and city.

During our stay, we ran out of drinking water (so kindly provided by the hosts). Literally within a half hour, Will was at the house with a new jug. I don't think you could find a better host if you tried!

Overall, we had an amazing vacation, but I can guarantee a lot of that was due to the house in which we spent it. Spectacular views, house, location, pools, and hosts.

Thanks Will and Patrick!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the well written, 5 star review! We're so glad everything worked out for you and your family and that you enjoyed your time in our home. We really do try to go above and beyond expectations so to have confirmation of that by you really means a lot to us. Many guests aren't sure about the extra fee for pool/spa heating, but as you mentioned, it's so well worth it and really makes for complete enjoyment of the outdoor space. Thanks again for writing such a nice review and of course, we'd welcome you back anytime! Sincerely, Patrick and Will

Lovely views!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Patrick and Will for sharing their lovely home with us. The home was very spacious and clean. Everything was stocked beyond our expectations. Walmart within walking distance made it easy to pick up some groceries. Only recommendation is TV in living area could be updated. Again our trip to San Diego was perfect thanks to the comforts of this beautiful home. Patrick and Will were both very attentive prior and during our stay.

We look forward to visiting again!

Absolutely loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip and felt right at home in this beautiful home! If we needed anything, they were just a text away and responded immediately. This is now the second time we’ve rented while on a trip, once an apartment in NYC and now this beautiful home with a breathtaking view in San Diego. I absolutely cannot imagine staying in a hotel after this! This house definitely set the bar high for any future trips!! Thanks Will & Patrick for sharing your beautiful home with my family! We absolutely loved it!!! My 12 year old was ready to move in indefinitely lol.

Wow - What an awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. Awesome view and a great pool and spa. It's in a nice neighborhood and close enough to the freeway and shopping to make travelling to the sites of San Diego very easy. The main floor bedroom made it easy for my mother-in-law to access without steps. Thank you Patrick and Will for a super vacation rental.
