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 Fairmount 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.

Owners were great! Property was great! The house was so comfortable. San Diego was worth seeing so many things to see and do. We were four women who get together every year at different places. We were eating great and walking everyday. This VRBO is in a perfect location close to the everything. Great great place!!!
Thank you and your fiends for choosing our Jungle House for your stay in San Diego! We're so glad everything was to your liking and you were able to relax and enjoy yourselves. Thank you as well for the 5 Star review! It's Will's nature to go above and beyond when it comes to our guests. We hope you'll return for another get together. Sincerely, Patrick and Will
We stayed at this house recently for my son's graduation from MCRD. The location was only about 10 minutes away so it was great. The house itself was exactly what we needed for our group and Will met us at the house when we got there and gave us a tour and was so friendly. There were so many little details that were appreciated such as leaving restaurants that are close by as well as coupons to the local grocery store. They also left us brochures for local attrations in the area. They also had different colored towels for each guest so people could tell their towels apart and we all thought that was a nice little touch.The neighborhood was safe and we loved the back patio and lights. We would definitely stay there again!
Thanks, Stacey! Wow! You're one of the first guests to mention all these little things we do and we really appreciate it! Although we receive mostly 5 Star reviews, your 5 Star review means a lot to us! Thanks too for stating the location and proximity to things, as the house is great for military, convention and regular tourists alike. We hope you'll come back to stay again. Sincerely, Patrick and Will
Charming yard and relaxed, comfortable home. Close to all the sights, fun and charm of San Diego.
We stayed here while visiting family in San Diego. It was very convenient to all attractions and the San Diego freeways. The property has a lovely garden oasis for relaxation and gathering together at the end of the day.
Great location, lovely home
I stayed here with my family. The house was big enough for all of us. The beds were very comfortable and the outside was very nice. Our hosts left us beach chairs, towels and a cooler. Made going to the beach easy. It was very well stocked too. The house was centrally located and only took about 10 minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go. They recommended restaurants that we tried and were very good. I would recommend this house to anyone I know. If I come to San Diego again, I'd defiinitely stay here again.
Thank you, Barabara! We appreciate you taking your time to write this informative review and really appreciate receiving the 5 Stars! We want to make sure we continue to go above and beyond for our guests, so we look forward to having you back again, and your friends too! Sincerely, Patrick and Will

Thanks for taking your time to write a review. Please let us know what we can improve on to get a 5 star review! 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.
This is a very quiet neighborhood and noise really travels in the canyon area. 10pm is the cut off for any outdoor sound, so enjoy the serenity. This is not a party house. Please be respectful of our neighbors and their peaceful enjoyment. Definitely no smoking, especially with the open canyon. No special events and no loud parties...no extra guests beyond those approved for stay, and please use your best judgment and know you're responsible for invited guests. House can sleep up to 8 guests in luxury beds (additional nightly fee over 6 guests, max 8). If you use the gas BBQ, you need to clean it. ($50 fee if it's not clean). We want you to enjoy your time here as much as we do. It's a special place. We operate on a personal level, so communication is key. Enjoy, relax, and welcome to San Diego!
