About Rachel

We LOVE San Diego! The sun, the beach, the happy people all make San Diego such a great place to live, work, but above all, vacation! We love our new home and city in Nashville, but be certain, we come back to San Diego as often as possible. Our 3 year old son is earning frequent flier miles faster than most kids earn stickers! We have so many happy memories in San Diego, and it makes us happy to open our home to others who want to experience the surf, sun, and R&R San Diego has to offer.

Rachel purchased this house in 2000

Why Rachel chose San Diego County

We are centrally located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a quick 15-minute trip from the airport. Close to everything, you'll enjoy the ease in which you can get to all the great destinations: SeaWorld, Balboa Park, downtown, Petco Park and of course miles and miles of beaches! North Park is known for it's great coffee shops, unique restaurants, and artsy village feel. We also appreciate our safe neighborhood, full of locals out jogging, dog walking and strolling the sidewalks. Having a huge, new park just a block away is so convenient.

What makes this house unique

One block away sports a secluded little park, 1 mile away and you'll find days worth of activities at Balboa Park. We love morning walks to one of the numerous, local coffee shops. Drinking coffee on the front porch swing while watching the friendly neighbors out jogging, dog walking and frequent baby strollers is always treat. Mostly, we love the fresh air. We eat as many meals as possible outside on the back patio...evenings under the twinkling lights make us happy.

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

San Diego was my home for many years and we couldn't have asked for a better stay at Rachel's. Everything we possibly needed was there, including baby crib and both inside and outside toys as well as wonderful books for my two toddler grandchildren. The house is incredibly roomy with many as-you-go instructions to assist with appliances, an abundance of towels for bathing and the beach, extra linens, and toiletries. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We loved the no-key entrance code -- one less thing to keep track of. Very quiet, safe neighborhood with plenty of on-street parking. Rachel is a delightful host who answered all our questions promptly. A great place to stay!

Great retreat from the cold Northeast!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay for our family. House is charming and as others have said very close to many of the key attractions. the host is AMAZING, can't say enough good things about our experience from booking through return of deposit. The house is the best equipped as far as kitchen and bedding supplies of any condo we have rented. We grilled several nights and made breakfast in every day, which really helps keep our kids on an even keel. Note to those arriving in the daytime, photo on this site shows a kind of bluish house, it's more green in real time, but there is no missing it on the street. Easy access to the local grocery with reusable grocery bags available for your use as well! Overall a great home base, I highly recommend it to anyone wanting close proximity to all SD has to offer : )

Turkey Bowl Open

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our visit. The house was clean, comfortable and well located with immediate access to main transportation arteries. The house is well equipped with all the essentials including all kitchen amenities, linens, paper products, coffee & more. The exterior has two porches that were fabulous for a cup of coffee or glass of wine! We recommend it highly!

Great Girls Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a lovely weekend at this cozy and welcoming home. The house is very comfortable and has everything needed to enjoy your vacation. The backyard patio was ideal for evening dinners and the front porch swing is a peaceful spot for a sunny afternoon swing.

Great homebase for a family exploring San Diego

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with our stay and really enjoyed its proximity to all of the attractions. The little extras that made it great were the kids toys and books that were available for our kids (ages 2 and 5). That made our evenings at "home" even better.

a very Merry Christmas in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

A live Christmas tree with darling Santa belt ornaments to greet us. Needless to say, we had a fantastic time at Rachel's house. All was ready for our arrival and exceeded our expectations. Had several email and text exchanges with Rachel prior to our arrival. She was always very kind and prompt in her responses. The sun was shining on the patio - made coffee and book reading delightful. Even had a bar-b-q with our daughter and their friends. Good family time. We plan on returning to this home next time our travel plans take us to San Diego.
