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, 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 house in 2002

Why Richard Norwood chose San Diego County

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 house 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

We had an amazing stay at the cottage! Everything was clean and comfortable. Loved the location and it worked out really well for my family. We would absolutely recommend this place and the hosts were great.

Comfortable, clean, inviting, updated

  • 5 of 5

This house was very enjoyable and easy to live in with lots of homey touches! Our family of 5 (all adults) stayed for one week. The home is clean, has everything you need and Richard was very approachable and accommodating! We loved the added attraction of an outdoor hot tub and used it almost every day!. The PB location is perfect, close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and a great neighborhood to walk in. Thanks Richard! The Sitz Family.

Great location. Great house.

  • 5 of 5

A few of my friends and I stayed here and loved this house. It's only a couple blocks from the beach and is in walking distance of Garnett Ave which has a strip of all restaurants, stores and bars. The house was very clean and the front porch area was awesome to relax on. Richard was very helpful with anything that we needed. I would recommend this house to friends and family without hesitation.

Great property. Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your house. Beautiful space and equipped with everything we needed. The grill was out of propane but the oven worked out for us instead. We would definitely rent the house again. Wonderful location and very comfortable.

Cute,clean house! Not so private..

  • 3 of 5

The house was very cute, hot tub is such a nice amenity, however the backyard is practically shared, as the tenants next door are directly next to the house and above via a deck. The house doesn't have any window coverings on that side either.

One other downfall was the floors creak very loudly... So do the beds and the medicine cabinet in the bathroom, so it's difficult to move around and not wake others at night.

The owner was very responsive when we needed a blow dryer, children's books and beach towels which were missing from the house. House very clean and nice!

Owner's Response: In the beach area we have beach cottages with huge yards that had small apartments built in the back during the 1960's when surfing became the rage ;). The entire neighborhood is basically the same except for the fit, finish and layout of each place. We have an extra large lot that allowed us to keep a private back yard for our front beach house. We have it completely fenced off from the other home to allow for a private grass yard, raised deck, hot tub, bbq and garden. I lived at the location for 10 years while fixing it up and it one of the best places on the block (finally lol). Im sure if you love the beach you will love this house.
