About Richard Norwood

My name is Richard Norwood and I just built my first vacation rental at my Property on Tourmaline St. I have spent over two months going over every detail and I am excited to say that I am very pleased with the product and I am excited to share it with the upcoming guests. I have been in Real Estate for over 10 years. After I graduated from UCLA, I was a high school teacher and would eventually like to go back into teaching, however, Real Estate has always paid the bills. I also own an operate an outdoor adventure company (www.huntandgofish.com), sending clients all over the world. I am an avid fisherman and love my two dogs Sadie and Mia.

Please don't hesitate to ask about the many local experiences we can offer our clients.

ex. Bonfire at the beach, Catered Dinner at the Beach, Fishing Trips, kayaking, San Diego Tours and much more!

Richard Norwood purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Richard Norwood chose Pacific Beach

I recently had to move from this home for work and decided that the location was so fantastic, that I wanted to spend the money and make this Home a charming and beautiful place to have a beach get-a-way. I meet people all the time that get a hotel room is a sparse area of San Diego and have always thought how much more you could get for you money if you booked a Vacation Rental near the beach!

What makes this townhome unique

The location to the beach is amazing as well as the neighborhood setting. It is a perfect blend of the beach lifestyle, quiet residential feel, and proximity to everything PB has to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a really nice location, close to beach and lots of restaurants. Townhouse was nice, with friendly neighbors, in a safe neighborhood. Richard stopped by personally to water the outdoor plants and to make sure we were happy with everything, which I thought was very nice. We were glad the place was stocked with plenty of beach toys/items/towels so we didn't have to bring or buy any of that. We would definitely stay here again.

Great First Weekend of 2014

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a place in PB to stay with a few friends to visit our buddy in the Navy. This townhouse was a great find and was one of the best priced homes that I found. The owner Richard was easy to get in touch with and made himself available for all my questions. The home itself is just about 1 mile north of Garnett and Mission. We found it really easy to explore PB both during the day and at night. A cab ride back from dinner and the bars was about $7. The home is fully stocked with what you need for a short or long stay. The couch can probably fit 8 people comfortably and the dinner table seats 6. Richard made the whole process easy for getting into the property and for checking out. There is a dedicated parking space in the back of the house and you can find additional parking on the nearby streets. We will definitely be staying here again! Thanks again Richard!

Great place for our family to stay

  • 4 of 5
Could not give 5 star rating because when we arrived very late at night (midnight) there was someone else staying at the rental we were supposed to be in. The couple packed up and left, (thank you). The place had been cleaned and was ready for us, just confusing that someone else had been placed there for the night, as we were always going to be a late check in. Except for that we were happy with the rental. This was our first time using VRBO instead of staying in a hotel and would do it again when traveling with my sister and our kids. There was plenty of room for us at the large table for meals, and the sectional couch was roomy for us to hang out to watch tv. The courtyard was a cozy place to hang out and relax also. It was nice having the beach towels and chairs when we went to the beach. Fellipe's was recommended for a pizza night as was Ramiro's Mexican takeout another night. Both were very good. The location of this rental was perfect, not only was the beach 2 blocks away but we were within 15 -25 minutes (depending on traffic) of Torrey Pines, Coronado Island, Balboa Park and the Zoo which were all attractions we visited while we were there.

Not the Best Experience

  • 3 of 5
Positive Elements: Walking distance to Pacific Beach, surf park, and pier. Good overall location for most San Diego attractions. Quiet street. Accommodation has been nicely decorated. Clear attempt to provide extras such as beach toys, chairs and road bikes. One private parking space at rear, just off alley, next to space for permanent tenants.
Negative Elements: Very little privacy. Back deck, front patio area, and balcony all shared with permanent tenants in other half of town home. Front patio area with shower is also shared with small rental unit. This property gets one half of the back deck, one half of the upper balcony (a table marks the middle point of each), and a corner of the front patio.
Missing blind panels in patio doors and other windows. Window into main living area does not have a blind installed at all, which means anyone walking down the side of the home to access the trash cans and laundry/garage can look in. Broken lock on main patio door identified but owner instructs to use pole placed in door frame to stop door from sliding open. Laundry is located in garage across the two parking spaces from this town home. It's coin operated and shared with the cleaning person for all 3 property rentals on site. Not sure if other units have their own washer and dryer, so it's possibly shared with other renters as well.
Poorly equipped kitchen utensils and pans. Most of the non-stick is scratched off the pans, so they are not safe to use. We had to buy our own can opener as the one currently provided was rusty and broken. Dirty cups in cupboard (one had hot chocolate remains). Kitchen could basically use some new stuff. We stuck to disposable plates and cutlery.
Owner/Property Manager: Helpful and courteous over the phone while booking the property. In person, it's a whole different story. As this is a public review, we felt it more appropriate to formally log this issue with VRBO's security team.
Summary: Good central location near beach. Showing some signs of wear since initial listing photos were taken, but that's to be expected. Owner was on site a lot at the beginning of our stay, helping to get one of his other units ready, so should be up to date on the condition of his property. If you don't mind staying in accommodation that has a goldfish bowl effect and shared outdoor spaces, then this might be a good base for a visit to the San Diego area. If you're looking for a place to relax with privacy, then not so much.

Owner's Response: To say this review is disingenuous would be an understatement. Management had a very big issue with one of the adults of the group and had to ask them to change their behavior or vacate the premisses. Details will not be discussed on the public forum, but are being formally followed up with VRBO.
I am very sorry that this guest did not enjoy the town home and the wonderful amenities that impress the vast majority of our other guests. The town home is one of the largest in the area at over 1700 square feet. We do have a town home next door, as with all town homes, and we do share a large balcony and the back deck between the two. We also have a large front courtyard with a brand new outdoor shower and beautiful sitting area that is available for 880. The space is truly a sunny and relaxing retreat. The entire home has been remodeled, top to bottom and is again at the top of the great neighborhood, in terms of updates, layout, design, amenities, location and appearance. We have 2 washers and two dryers for 4 places and have not ever had a complaint about waiting for a washer/dryer. We have maintenance continually change out and update any wear and tear between guests and the property has actually improved since the pictures were taken. We have added 3 new windows, repainted, updated insulation, changed all towels and linens, purchased larger televisions and much more. The kitchen is VERY well stocked and is continually updated with new pots, pans and silverware and more.
Please be rest assured that 880 Tourmaline St. is very nice, wonderfully located, and is conducive to a fantastic Beach Vacation.

Great location, quiet but walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five stayed here in late April. We had more than enough room, our kids loved the bunk beds. We made use of the sand toys and beach towels that were available. We walked to Turquoise coffee, and Trader Joe's was only about a mile away (I have a kid with food allergies so I had to prep some meals). I ran in the morning along the beach and boardwalk, and did outdoor yoga at Law Park (on Saturday morning) with Nama-Steve. The beds were very comfortable, and everything was very clean.
We would definitely stay here again!

Great PB Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented Richard's townhouse in October 2013. The location is excellent in North PB. Away from the noise and chaos of Garnet Avenue yet a quick bike ride down to the pier.

The townhouse is well appointed with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Lots of bikes in the garage were a BIG bonus.

The TV quit working and Richard immediately had his repairman there (even though he was out of town). We were very impressed with that service.

I would highly recommend this home for families or singles for a great beach get away.

Thanks again Richard...we will be back!

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5
Spacious house in a great location close to Pacific Beach. We used this as home base for wedding party, and it had plenty of space. Great price, and everything works. Can tell its a rental, as it is pretty much no frills, but that is exactly what we were looking for. The 4 Seasons it is not, but its a great place, locations, with plenty of room. Richard was great to work with, made everything very easy. Would stay again.
