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.

Great Family Retreat Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful. Beds were comfortable. Lots of extra amenities that were helpful for traveling with three kids. Walking distance to good food and a fun beach. We had a great time

Great property Pacific Beach

  • 5 of 5

This Pacific Beach property is pretty much as described from owner and other reviewers. Surprisingly (to me), the residential neighborhood is quiet (both surrounding neighbors and street traffic), however, there are (short term) renters with dogs behind the unit. No issues with them, just info for families. It is 1 1/2 block walk down to the surfing beach/bike bath and plenty of restaurants to walk to. Pacific beach is a fun area to hang in so there is plenty to do. This unit is great for either 2 couples or a family with a couple of kids. Great kitchen (gas stove) for cooking, beautiful back yard area, and nice deck in front too to just sit and relax. There are 4 adult bikes, 2 kids bikes and (i believe) 2 kids helmets. Also, there is a coin operated washer ($2) and dryer ($1) which will need quarters. Owner has a unit with detergent, etc to purchase if needed. Unit was very clean (even under the bed-since i lost my glasses and was looking everywhere for them), and also has small heaters in case it gets colder overnight. Standard check in (3 ish), check out (11am), to give you time for your last am walk at the beach. Owner does request some minimal clean up before leaving unit ( sweep up sand, put out trash, pile up towels, sheets). Also, when i had a few questions, quick responses. Definately, if you are looking at Pacific Beach, look at this unit or one of his others.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home. Richard was very helpful with our needs (traveling with a little one-needed a pack n play and highchair). House is within walking distance to beach and restuarants, but on a quiet street which was a definite plus. We definitely took advantage of the hot tub after long days of exploring. Thank you for the great stay and we look forward to returning!

Our New Favorite Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful extended stay in North PB! The house was perfect for my little family (we have two children under the age of 5) and we look forward to our next visit! We already miss the patio spaces where we enjoyed our morning coffee before our daily walks to the beach :)) Thanks again Richard (and for the bottle of wine :))
