About Dennis and Julie Richardson

We are San Diego Natives who have grown up in the beach area. Dennis grew up in our houses in Ocean Beach. We decided to buy in Pacific Beach as the area is a bustling fun beach community, close to so much shopping, nightlife, and restaurants. All of our kids are connected to the beach, from Junior Lifeguards to San Diego Lifeguards at one time or another. Our youngest, who is in college, still surfs daily.

Dennis and Julie Richardson purchased this house in 2006

Why Dennis and Julie Richardson chose San Diego County

Because we love the beach, the beach community, and the people associated with it, we chose another beach house. We like the unique architecture of the house, its warmth and comfort. We have since spent considerable time up grading and updating our home. Its a great home to use to get away, yet has all of the conveniences you would need.

What makes this house unique

We love the secluded backyard that is surrounded with beautiful palm trees, bamboo, and a nectarine tree! Being close to everything and bikes too, makes our house a better than a hotel

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Dennis & Julie

"What a relaxing and wonderful home away from home.You thought of everything a person might need and more ! Bicycles, Beach towels, New Patio Chairs, DVDs, Cds, Washer & Dryer, Chenille throw, all above and beyond.

The beach was so close by and the bike trail provided many hours of enjoyment.

We are so glade we found you on the internet. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat. We will recommend the bungalows to our family and friends back in Illinois."

My husband and I are local to San Diego but when our condo flooded we needed to evacuate and find a place for us and our two small dogs to stay. Thankfully I found Julie & Dennis' PB home online and inquired. Dennis called me within 20 mins and even though it was last minute he agreed to accommodate us. He sent his housekeeper to ensure the house was clean for us to arrive within a few hours which was a huge relief, given our situation. They made a very stressful and horrible situation easier to deal with and we were grateful. They were kind, professional and very efficient. They even called us the night we arrived to ensure that everything was ok and to see if we needed anything.

Their house is as described, cute, clean and extremely well maintained. They have beautiful hardwood floors throughout, nice furniture and a cute little fenced in yard to relax in. The beds were clean and comfortable. Just want we needed. To make things stress free, they've thought of every detail to make your stay like you were at home including two sets of keys on lanyards, that even had the bike lock keys on them, laundry detergent, dish soap, new kitchen sponge, pots, pans, etc. It seems like small things to be happy about but when you're stressed, tired and basically homeless, it made things so much easier for us. We noticed and appreciated their attention to detail. The house is located in a cute community and accessible to everything in Pacific Beach. I would love to come back to this home as well as try one of their other ones in the future. I recommend their home to anyone who would like to stay close to the beach and experience beach living in a fabulous house!

Thanks for taking such good care of us, Julie and Dennis! :)

Keep this place a secret

  • 5 of 5

Do not let the front of this picture of the front of the house fool you. This house is a beautiful quiet retreat. With a small Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse backyard. It's nicely decorated very comfy, and God Bless the owners there are window air conditioners in the bedrooms which is pure bliss! The beds are so comfortable it was the best sleep I had in months.

Then there are the laid back attitude of the wonderful owners. So easy going and no worries attitude. This place is a hidden

Gem in the Beach area. We had one of the best stays ever in San Diego. So close to the beach, and great restaurants. Walking in the house, music softly playing, a bottle of wine waiting for us, A beautifully decorated home, neat, spotlessly clean. These are truly very kind and thoughtful owners. Note I am cynical of reviews. I would give this place a 10!!!!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time. The place was clean and comfortable. We stayed 7 nights and traveled to Coronado Beach and Disneyland. It was great to have a place to cook meals. It was perfect for our family of six. We would definitely like to come back.

Great week in Pacific Beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this home when we came to San Diego for our daughters wedding. The house was very well equipped and we appreciated having the private back bedroom for our other daughter, son in law and year old grandson. The house was within walking distance of the beach and many little shops. We would definitely recommend it to other travelers.

What a great place to stay for a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Pacific Beach House. We were very impressed with how clean the house was upon our arrival. The upgrades to the house (especially to the kitchen and the bathroom) were very well done and made the house feel very cozy and comfortable. The house was well stocked with all the amenities needed to have a great stay, including the beach items. The location was convenient to the beach and the restaurants in the area. We were able to walk to almost everything we wanted. We definitely plan on staying here again, and would (and have already) recommended this property to our friends and family.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (our kids are 4 & 7 years old), and we had the opportunity had the opportunity to stay in this vacation rental from February 15 to 19, 2014. We arrived after a very long day -- we had spent the entire day at Disneyland and then got stuck in interminable traffic driving from Anaheim to San Diego. Night had already fallen by the time we pulled up to the house, and we were all exhausted & cranky. I cannot tell you what a pleasure it was to arrive at the house to find lights on, music playing, and a bottle of wine waiting for my husband and I to share after the kids went to bed (which we did!)

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The house was very well furnished and the decor was lovely. Our only suggestion would be to have some kind of guide waiting for guests with some basic info such as the location of the washer/dryer, which we had no idea would be located in the garage next to the house. A big laundry basket would be helpful too, since we had to cart quite a bit of laundry back & forth between the house & the garage.

Another issue we had was that some electrical outlets could not handle our devices. The plug-ins would not stay in the sockets, so we had to find the more updated outlets to use.

Still, we really liked this vacation rental and wished we could have stayed for longer. My apologies for the delay in writing this review. It was such a lovely little place that we did want to leave our positive comments, however late. Thanks again to Dennis for his assistance in booking the rental, and most importantly, for the wine! (We really needed it!)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments and we are so glad that once you made it to the house all was well! Great idea on the guide, we do provide one, but it must have wandered off. We have made sure that a replacement is back at the house. We like the large laundry basket idea and will get one placed ASAP. We so know what you mean about electric plugs these days as we struggle with them in our own home! Seems that many of the newer appliance plugs are loose in the sockets. The electrical has been upgraded just a couple years ago, so we believe it to be the types of appliances, but we will keep an eye on it and replace any that are problematic. Again, your comments are awesome and we are thrilled you had a great time. Dennis and Julie
