About Dennis and Julie Richardson

Dennis and Julie are Native to San Diego and love to share their beautiful city and accommodations.

Dennis and Julie Richardson purchased this house in 1970

Why Dennis and Julie Richardson chose San Diego County

Dennis grew up here and learned to surf, dive, and skate board. Its a small town atmosphere, and many people still know us when we go into restaurants and shops.

What makes this house unique

Hard to find better.... The Cape Cod bungalow is a 2 minute walk to Beach, laid back atmosphere, easy access to freeway. Only 5 to 10 minutes driving time to most everything you will plan to do in San Diego

Great Place !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great bungalow Jan. 6-13 and absolutely loved it! When we first walked in, we noticed how clean and nicely decorated it was. The kitchen is very up to date with all the amenities you would need for your stay. The little extras such as the bottle of wine and the lovely jazz music playing throughout the bungalow just make it that much more inviting. The bungalow is just a short drive to everywhere we planned on going or if you don't feel like driving, there is plenty to see and do in walking distance. The owners were very pleasant and offered us tips and suggestions on where to go and what to see. If vacationing in San Diego, we will absolutely rent this property again.

We loved staying at the Bungalow! It was terrific

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy and we totally enjoyed our 2 weeks there. It was so fun to bring our dog along and have fun on the dog beach just a block away every morning! We enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen; we didn't need to worry about bringing utensils, plates, etc. We had everything we needed already there! Dennis stopped by to check on us to see if we needed anything; we appreciated that. It was a great vacation!

Comfy, charming bungalow in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Bahamas Bungalow for 2 wonderful weeks and will definitely return. The location is ideal, especially if you are traveling with your dog -- only a block from terrific Dog Beach. It's just a few walkable blocks to Newport Ave, the main drag with lots of restaurants and funky shops, and outdoor coffee kiosks are a block away -- a great way to start the day. The bungalow is adorable and has everything you need. My pooch and I took over the bedroom, and my friend slept on the pull-out couch in the living room. The kitchen is well-equipped. All in all, a great time and wonderful place to stay. Highly recommended!

A Cozy Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. The bungalow was as described; very clean and well equipped with kitchen items, towels etc. The queen bed was very comfortable and linens clean. We had two larger dogs and the location was great for quick access to dog beach which is where we spent most of our time. I would recommend if you have larger pet(s) to rent the Cape Cod Bungalow as it looked to have a larger back patio area. And if you have another couple to vacation; renting these two units together would be a great set up. I spoke directly with the owner several times and he was very helpful and wanted any feedback in order to make the bungalow a better place to stay. We will stay here again.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We did our homework and this is the best value in San Diego. We've stayed at both bungalows and they are true to description: they have everything! You can get on a plane with only your bathing suit, flipflops and sunscreen because anything else you need is provided. Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, bikes, you name it. Clean and comfortable -- my mother-in-law is still talking about the quality of the queen mattress and luxurious sheets. The Bungalows are situated in a more residential area of Ocean Beach, far enough away from the loud partiers on Newport Ave. yet a 5 minute walk to the beach. Very convenient and a great value. We'll be back, at any season.

Our Ocean Beach Bungalow is only steps from the sand of one of San Diego's finest beaches. You are within walking distance to the heart of San Diego's most distinctive beach town, Ocean Beach. Being close to all that San Diego has to offer, you can enjoy a vast array of any activity your heart desires. The attraction of Southern California is the ability to enjoy many activities such as sailing, biking, skating, swimming, surfing, fishing, diving, golfing, whale watching, or just people watching. A few minutes drive will get you to many major shopping areas, fine dining, and assortments of nightlife. The world-famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World and Legoland are just a few of the major attractions San Diego offers. A short drive takes you to Indian Gaming and Outlet Malls, further on to Scenic Mountains, and if you desire more adventure, the beautiful Anza Borrego Desert.
