About Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck
We're both born and raised in California and have lived in Northern CA and Southern CA, including West Hollywood, Long Beach, Orange County, Palm Springs, and of course, San Diego. We are Realtors, so if you're interested in buying or selling in San Diego, Los Angeles, or the Palm Springs area, we can help you. In addition to Real Estate, Patrick also works in the entertainment industry in Hollywood. Taking care of our vacation home certainly keeps us busy, but when we can, we love to travel. One of our favorite places to visit is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We own a timeshare right on the beach, amazing, and we rent that out too! You'll see some pics of the area on our walls in the dining room. We love this home and we're very fortunate and grateful we have the ability to share it with you. We're hardworking guys and we do all we can to make sure you, our guests, get to experience the San Diego area we call home.
Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck purchased this House in 1998
Why Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck chose North Park
This home is in one of the best locations in San Diego. There's nothing else like it. There's just something about the natural canyon setting, the towering Eucalyptus, giant Italian Cypress, and Palm Trees...a true oasis. We're so close to everything, but we feel like we're in our own private park. There's nothing like being within minutes to so much. We also have another home located in San Diego, just south of this home. It's also listed on VRBO, and called the Panoramic Ocean View House #907583.
What makes this House unique
Prime Location. We love the natural, canyon setting and privacy. Instant relaxation and natural aromatherapy from the Eucalyptus trees and microclimate. Relax on one of the patios, BBQ, lounges for sun and also perfect for stargazing. Such a natural and private setting yet so close to most of San Diego's main attractions.

Comfy and Convenient!
Our group of 6 long-time friends found this home to be perfect and convenient in our desire to explore San Diego for 5 days. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was stocked with all the necessities, and the pristine yard was a perfect setting for enjoying wine and conversation. Will and Patrick were perfect hosts in every way to make sure we had a great girls get-away. This home is highly recommended!
The house was great. Our 2 boys (4 & 2) loved playing in the back garden, “exploring” pretending and just being boys. Fire pit was a nice addition to sit around after a long day make s’mores and relax. Thank you Patrick and Will for opening your home and being so sweet !!
We rented this beautiful house for a long weekend, along with our daughter and son-in-law, their two children, who are 3 and 5, and another adult son. The place was perfect! The garden and outdoor landscaping are exceptional. The house is tucked away back from the street so that you have complete privacy. The patio area is large and furnished with everything you need to dine and even entertain. We had a family birthday party with 14 people and it was absolutely perfect. This is a family friendly house - Will even pulled out a little tent for the kids to play in - they were delighted with the lights that came on at dark. There is a fire pit with seating and on one of the nights we had a fire and made s'mores. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals at home if you want, and if not, the location is not far at all from a great selection of restaurants in North Park. The owners have a pantry that is actually stocked with food staples which was really great - Will very generously said to use whatever we might want to and to just replace as we used things. That was really helpful with a large family group. The bedrooms are good size and offer great privacy for sleeping - everyone felt like they had a place to get away from the group for quiet time if needed. Another plus is that there is off street parking for two or even three vehicles. I highly recommend this lovely house if you stay in San Diego. 5 plus stars!!!!
Beautiful, comfortable home.
This house is beautiful and kept in great condition. I was traveling with my husband, 2 kids and his parents. We all had room to spread out. The owners were very responsive and even waited for our grocery delivery (late arrival flight). Everything you would need was available in the house, including a bunch of information on things to do in the area. The yard is really nice and private. My daughter's favorite part was the little circus tent in the yard (she has the same one at home). It made her feel like it was put there just for her haha. I would definitely rent this house again when I'm in the area. Those were the best oranges I've ever had ;)!! Thanks Patrick and Will!
Amazing Stay at the Jungle House!
Patrick & Will's Jungle House is a little oasis within an already beautiful place like San Diego. Me and my family were staying in North Park for my brother's wedding and it was the perfect location for us to relax after long days of wedding activities. It's a nice walk (about 20 minutes) to University Ave in North Park which has restaurants, bars, grocery store, nail salon etc. or you can take a quick Uber anywhere as it's pretty centrally located.
The house itself is very clean and homey, perfect size for a group vacation. The garden was an appreciated element and a fun atmosphere to relax - I now want my own little jungle garden! Patrick & Will were excellent hosts and very easy to communicate with/answer any questions. Our only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer! Would love to come back again to the Jungle House. Thank you, Patrick & Will for your hospitality!
Outstanding home and wonderful owners
We have rented VRBO's for many years, in North America and Europe. This has to be one of the all time best VRBO's. The home is beautiful with lovely gardens. When you sit in the back, you are in your own paradise. This house is well equipped. You will want for nothing. The bedrooms are large. The location is close to Balboa Park and easy access to all the other amenities. The owners are attentive, and accommodating. They are easy to reach, although we needed nothing. I give this home an 11/10 it is so well maintained and the owners so easy to work with. We will return!
Wow! An 11 out of 10...we love it, thanks! We're glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Will and I are constantly adding and improving things so we can continue to go beyond what's expected from our guests, so to received validation for that we truly appreciate it.
With sincere gratitude,
Patrick and Will
This home is so amazingly close to all of San Diego's main attractions, yet you'll feel like you're in your own personal park when you return home from sightseeing. North Park is a trendy little area known for it's Brew pubs, restaurants, and art. North Park borders beautiful Balboa Park and the world Famous San Diego Zoo! Close proximity to it all. We love our Jungle house and know you will too! Feel free to ask us any questions about the house and the area.
