Perfect for family or a romantic getaway, the private yard is overflowing with amenities.

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.

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.

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!

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!!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely amazing! The owners are so nice, they even stocked the house full of stuff which saved us money also! Like games, sunscreen, condiments, laundry detergent, shampoo and conditioner even kids for the little one, I mean you think of it they had It. The backyard is my favorite it's amazing the pool and hot tub, waterfall, the surround sound system. We spent most of our time in the backyard relaxing by the pool lissening to music and grilling out. They left us a $25 gift card for one of the local grocery stores which was so nice of them. They had a goody basket for us which had some pancake mix, popcorn, peanuts, crackers, it was just so amazing I would stay here again forsure! You won't be disappointed.

Extremely Convenient and Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

A factual review of our wonderful stay. Our family of 4 visited Dave and Leslie's place for 3 weeks during February this year. Our girls were 3 and 1yrs old. The home is very clean, very cozy, and extremely well situated. It's on a quiet residential street that's 15mins from the airport, 15mins from Pacific Beach, 5mins from Mission Valley Mall, 10mins from

Balboa Park/Zoo, and 30mins from LegoLand. It also backs directly onto the 805 Interstate freeway, which has a steady traffic hum 24HRS a day.

The home itself has an absolutely beautiful backyard with lots of space for loungers, a hot tub for 6 people, and all the other fixings that you'd see in the listing photos. The downside for us, was the backyard is extremely dangerous for toddlers with the pool, fish pond, lots of concrete, and minimal space to run and play.

Inside the home you'll find 3 well appointed bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and the kitchen/dining/living area. The home itself had a smaller footprint than we thought, which didn't provide much room for the children to play. It also doesn't have a bathtub. This was an oversight on our part when looking at the photos, which meant in order for us to bathe our toddlers, we needed to shower with them. Wifi, Roku, Netflix worked perfectly!

The kitchen is extremely well stocked and made it very easy for cooking. Lots of fixings and sauces and spices and dressings and everything else random you'll need to garnish your meal. This was an absolute blessing for us. The downside is the dark textured slate/tile floor was extremely difficult to wipe and sweep up our children's crumbs and eating messes.

On that note, Dave and Leslie provided a Pack'N Play, High Chair, Stroller, and lots of sand toys which helped out our stay immensely.

Lindbergh Park is nearby, with a perfect playground that's about 6 blocks away, or approximately a 10mins walk. We did this every other afternoon and the girls loved it!

There's also a fantastic Mexican themed grocery store about 4 blocks away, called Carnival Supermarket, that we enjoyed fresh made salsa and homemade tortilla chips multiple times during our stay.

We would HIGHLY recommend Dave and Leslie's home for all guests without toddlers. Dave was extrembly responsive to any requests during our stay, and even purchased a couple space heaters for each of the girls bedrooms so they'd be a little cozier at night. They also had a beautiful welcome basket for us on our arrival. Thanks for a great vacation!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a rental home. I can't say enough about how great this place was. We had 4 days with our kids here and they didn't even want to leave the house! We played games(which were supplied) and swam and hot tubbed. My youngest loved feeding the fish. We didn't have the best weather while we were there but we were in paradise anyway! The pool area is like a luxury resort....We will definitely be back to stay another time!!

Great place to stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over Christmas. We were welcomed by Dave and Leslie and they personally showed us how to work everything and where to find anything we needed. (seriously, anything) It was one of the most well equipped rentals I've ever been in. They had basics in the kitchen, along with things that you don't think about. Need a tablespoon of oil? done. Forgot sunscreen? In the closet. Need sand toys? In the garage. Ponchos for crazy rain? Yep. those too. The beds were comfortable, the hot tub was great. The coy pond caused major disagreements among the children as to who would feed them everyday. It was the favorite thing, so I guess we didn't need to go to the zoo. The pool is heated and we used it when the weather was not terrible. The location is private but only 5 minutes away from a Von's, Target, Panera, Chipotle and other places. It's also so close to get to all the attractions. Dave and Leslie are great hosts and we would love to stay here again when we come to San Diego.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. :) It was so nice meeting your family and we're very happy you had a great visit! We're also glad that all the items we supply were useful during your stay. We have stayed at many rentals that don't supply anything and it can be quite inconvenient so we really do try to make your stay easier. Thank you for the feedback.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This home was simply amazing, along with the owner Dave. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation was supplied from cooking items to beach and pool items. A great location to get around San Diego.

The Backyard looks even better than the photos - plus Dave is improving on it all the time. The welcome basket was definitely well received. It was a perfect backyard to entertain friends and relatives over our weekend stay.

We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the late response Thank you for the review! Glad the house worked out well for you during your visit. We hope you can visit us again sometime. From Leslie: Yes, it is difficult to keep Dave out of the yard constantly tweaking and adding things! LOL
