Enjoy beautiful San Diego in your own centrally located true California home. The house has been upgraded throughout with hardwood floors, slate, granite counter tops, modern appliances, large LCD flat screen TVs and tasteful décor.

Perfect for family or a romantic getaway, the private yard is overflowing with amenities. Delight in a refreshing dip in the custom heated fiberglass saltwater swimming pool with rock waterfall and reclining ledge surrounded by tropical landscaping and koi pond. Sit poolside at the thatched wet bar and have a cold beverage as your favorite tunes play on the outdoor stereo system. Rinse off in the outdoor hot shower and get ready for some great food from the built-in stainless steel barbecue. Catch some California sun in one of the poolside lounge chairs or sip your morning coffee on the shaded patio. In the evening turn on the ambient landscape lighting, light the tiki torches, stream some music from your phone, and slip into the jetted spa hot tub with groovy colored lights. After you have relaxed away your day of sightseeing, sit around the lava rock fire pit and enjoy the temperate San Diego evening before retiring to one of the home’s luxuriously comfortable beds for a blissful night’s sleep.

About The Owner

I have enjoyed my home for many years customizing the house and back yard to my liking. Now I'd like to try living in some other areas of the city and let others enjoy my home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose San Diego

It is very central to all areas of San Diego. I have always loved living in Clairemont.

What makes this house unique

My favorite thing is listening to some music while going for a nighttime swim.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our guest entered such a nice review in our book (we are fortunate to have so many good comments in our book actually!) that I wanted to share this one.....

------------------------------------------------------------

This was such an amazing place to come together a a family. The location was great...on the days that we wanted to venture out we never had far to go. On the days we wanted to get some R&R we were more than happy to hang out here.

What really surprised me was that on the VRBO website this place seemed "too good to be true"...and then when you get here it surpasses that already high expectation you had in mind... and then you realize that the website & photos really don't prepare you for how truly amazing this place is!



My favorite part of the property was the privacy of the yard...totally not what I was expecting for a place within city limits. There were a couple of times I didn't even do my hair/make-up...what a treat!

Clairemont is centrally located to almost anything you might want to do in San Diego. It's not a beach community, but also escapes the overbearing heat of the inland communities during the summertime. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to just about anywhere in San Diego including beaches, downtown, SeaWorld, etc. The house itself is in a family type neighborhood, not a young party beach area (although it's only a short drive to such a place. :)

Balboa drive has almost everything you need from major grocery stores, restaurants, Target, Home Depot. 24 Hour Fitness, bars, etc.

The house is close to both the 163 and 805 freeways and major streets which makes it easy to get around.

An Excellent Vacation Home for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO in the past and this is by far the best experience we have ever had! We stayed in January of 2015 and could not have asked for a better place to stay. My Husband, Father and our two kids had a blast! From the time we booked our stay up to our arrival, the communication was excellent. Dave and Leslie think of everything to make your stay comfortable, by everything, I mean everything! A welcome basket and personal note upon arriving. A tour through the home so we knew how to use everything and just a sincere warm welcome! There is a well stocked kitchen with spices and cookware that made meal preparation easy. I had a horrible cold while we were travelling and ran out of medicine, there was cold medicine to cover me that night. Extra toilet paper, a ton of towels, toiletries (like shampoo and body wash), ziplock bags, maps, menu's, even coupons for nearby places. When you are traveling these are the the things you need but it's really a hassle to buy or pack them, not to mention an added expense, especially if you need one little ziplock bag for airport security. The home was clean and comfortable and we felt like we could call it home for a week. The backyard is an amazing oasis of fun and comfort from the pool to hot tub=pure bliss! WE CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK!!

Beautiful Stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Leslie have a beautiful home and they, along with Wendy, really welcome you to enjoy this place. The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable for all, even our family with four adults and three kids. Everything is extremely clean and well-stocked with thoughtful items to make our stay perfect.

The backyard is a party waiting to happen. We loved all of our time in the salt-water pool and jacuzzi and the boys really looked forward to feeding the koi each morning. We didn't get to use the BBQ or fire pit but they looked like they would both be great.

Conveniently located - quick drives to both SeaWorld and the Zoo. We used Grub Hub for dinner deliveries so we never had to leave the home. This really is a perfect vacation home for families, couples, or friends!

Just as great as last time

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent over two weeks touring around California and for our last week we just wanted to relax by a pool. There was no question that we would book any house other than this one, the whole family wanted to go back. Great house, awesome pool and backyard, and reasonably priced. My brother in law and his family recently stayed here and when I asked his kids what their favorite part of their California vacation was they said "the house". Same answer from my kids. Dave and Leslie are thoughtful and caring hosts. They seem to always be making improvements to the property. There are a few things that might bother some people....there is no air conditioning and the house is HOT, there is quite a lot of traffic noise in the backyard (we always had the outdoor speakers on so it didn't bother us), and the side of the house by the Koi pond is very smelly from garlic planted to keep away pests. None of these things would stop of from staying here again and we will be recommending this place to family and friends. Thanks again Dave and Leslie.

Great location to most sites and great backyard with pool, hot tub, gas fire pit, grill, & tiki bar.

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Leslie were very hospitable and had a welcome basket with goodies and a $20 gift card to Vons grocery store. Our frig was going out and Dave called a technician out to fix it right away and when he couldn't a new one was installed the next day. Very responsive service!! We all enjoyed our stay a lot!!

Gorgeous Property--exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at San Diego Dreamin'. The owners, Dave and Leslie, made sure we had pretty much everything we needed to have a great stay and even added a personal touch with a welcome letter addressed to us and our 4 kids. We spent a ton of time out in the huge backyard, and we all loved the pool and hot tub. The kids all enjoyed feeding the koi in the pond as well. I was super glad to have the roku as well, as we didn't miss the Game of Thrones premiere during our vacation 😁�. There were plenty of dishes cooking utensils so it really felt like we were at home being able to prepare meals and everything. It was also a great price for a 5 night stay and they seemed to think of everything. I would definitely stay there again if I visit San Diego in the future. Thanks Dave and Leslie!!
