About Quinn Smith

My wife and I purchased this home because we love the location and the view. It is truly amazing and we never get tired of it. We have 2 kids ages 8 and 10. We love the fact that we are minutes away from the beautiful features that San Diego has to offer - the beach, Mission Bay, Sea World, downtown San Diego, Pacific Beach, shopping centers, and La Jolla Restaurants. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home with visiting families to make their vacation memorable.

Quinn Smith purchased this house in 2005

Why Quinn Smith chose San Diego County

Our home is one of the few properties in La Jolla that has an incredible 180 degree southern view of the city of San Diego, bays, ocean, Coronado island all the way to Mexico. It is a very quiet peaceful location on Soledad Mountain. My wife and I love to take our kids to the beaches like La Jolla Shores, Wind n' Sea, and Pacific Beach or go for walks or bike rides on the Boardwalk in Mission Bay. There are many boat rental places nearby for water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, whale watching, etc. La Jolla is known for its scenic beauty, great beaches, restaurants, bars, entertainment, seal beach/preserve. You can enjoy spectacular views of nightly fireworks from our house all Summer long!

What makes this house unique

We wanted our home to be a private oasis to enjoy as much as the local attractions. Enjoy waking up and stepping into your own private resort including water slides, waterfalls and a deck with gorgeous ocean views. At night BBQ and enjoy the breathtaking tranquility of watching the San Diego sunset and taking a dip in a warm water pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Quinn and Tarah,

We have greatly enjoyed being here in your home and beautiful garden in San Diego. The kids loved the pool and so did we. We have been strolling around the beaches, Sea World and felt so relaxed and happy being here. Thanks again and who knows until next time!!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited San Diego with our 2 daughters, their husbands, and three grandchildren ages 15, 8, and 4. Upon arrival, our 8 year old quickly looked things over, visited the back yard and dubbed the house, "Fantasy Land." The pictures don't do the house justice, particularly on the first floor. The kitchen and living areas were perfect. We like to gather in the kitchen and the spacious, well equipped kitchen provided the needed room and necessary utensils. I would've liked to have a hand mixer but can't complain about the top of the line Kitchen Aid stand mixer that was provided.

The house was clean with an over-abundance of towels. Hot water never ran out. The location of the house allowed for excellent evening breezes and wonderful views of SeaWorld's fireworks displays. My sons in law enjoyed the sound system for the home as well as the televisions. There were adequate instructions for everything, and everything was clearly marked. We only had one question while we were there and emailed Quinn. In less than an hour, our question was answered, and we realized our user error.

The back yard was unforgettable....the pool (temperature always perfect)....the evening lighting.....hot tub....hammock (hugely popular with all the men and boys).....lots of seating.

I only have three words left.....GO, STAY, ENJOY!!

Backyard/pool AMAZING, but inside the house/amenities need work for the price

  • 3 of 5

The house doesn’t have AC, and even on days where the temp was 70 the house got HOT given it has nice, big windows on the 1st floor. Our 1st night was miserable given the house was sweltering, the windows had to be open, and the renters next door had a raging pool party until 3am. Heads up that the house next door is also a rental with an awesome backyard/pool, and some renters might not be considerate. After not getting any sleep we emailed the owners, and the good news is they were responsive and brought a freestanding AC unit to make things more comfortable. They also called the owner next door about the noise. This house has an AWESOME backyard/pool/hot tub. The pool was clean and deep, and the hot tub and curved slide were a huge hit. The backyard also has a hammock, basketball hoop, long eating table, and a comfy shaded lounge area. It was well stocked with beach/pool towels and pool toys. The only complaint about the backyard was the gas grill was unusable since it had not been cleaned in a long time and was heavily smoking. It was a huge disappointment to rent a house for a week and not be able to grill. Inside the house the oven had the same issue as the grill; it hadn't been cleaned in some time and was smoking heavily from burnt on food. The electric cooktop's main/largest burner only half worked so we had to improvise. Because of the cooking issues we ended up eating out more than we would've liked, and it detracted from our stay. The house has a nice layout and incredible views. It comes with plenty of blankets, utensils, plates/cups/bowls, etc. They also have a lot of "extras" like many DVD's, books, kids equipment, storage, etc. However, the beds are not great. By day 3 everyone was complaining, and we all had aches and pains. We were surprised the mattresses were older and lacked box springs/support. We overlooked the house only had 2 bathrooms (master & 1 other) so that was really hard for 9 people (5 adults/4 kiddos), but that was my issue for overlooking. Pay close attention to the listed "sleeps" number. Loft area has an air mattress vs. a bed, and I think it should be marketed as sleeping less than the listing does today. The house has potential for sure; the owners just need to put the same upgrades into the house that they did to the pool/yard. They seemed very responsive after our 1st rough night so maybe this review will improve things. I would say 3.5 stars if halves were allowed.

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week to getaway and it was perfect. Outdoor setup is great for kids of all ages and the pool even had a big section that was 18" or so, so our twin toddler boys had a place to play in the water as well and we didn't have to hold them constantly. House has everything you need. Toys for little ones, movies and swim toys as well. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood but still close enough to the beach if you want an afternoon in the sand. Vons and Trader Joe's grocery are also very close which was great for grabbing whatever you need.

We would highly recommend the home to any family.

Great property!!

  • 4 of 5

House was great, the back yard area is stunning and exactly how it looks in the pics. My only complaint was there could have been better sleeping options or another half bath considering the cost, but property is exactly as advertised and is really beautiful!
