Create lasting memories in this large two-story home with panoramic views of ocean, Mission Bay, City of San Diego, and all the way to Mexico on a clear day. This open floor-plan home has all of the fine details to make your stay in San Diego unforgettable and is close to all of San Diego's attractions. When not out seeing the sights enjoy the pool, spa, waterfalls, water slide, fireworks (Summer and New Years Eve) and BBQ in your private backyard oasis. This house is perfect for a couples, large families, or multiple families. It provides something for everyone whether you want to kick back and relax or explore everything San Diego has to offer.


Large master bedroom downstairs opens up to private oasis in backyard. Lounge on the hammock, take a morning dip in the pool or spa, or just enjoy the sunshine on one of the many lounge chairs around the pool. Three large, spacious rooms upstairs for rest or play. The fourth bedroom upstairs is a large loft area with floor to ceiling windows to enjoy panoramic ocean/bay views. Large closet downstairs with plenty of additional towels, toys, and games for children and adults. This house is perfect for those traveling with kids. We provide a queen size air bed and bedding for additional sleeping arrangements.


This house is an ENTERTAINER’S DREAM. Backyard comes to life at night with 40 lights softly illuminating beautiful rock features. Fountains imbedded in rocks create cascading waterfalls throughout rock features. Relax on the lounge chairs or have some fun on the 25 foot waterslide that wraps around spa. There is state of the art pool/spa saline technology (no chlorine) with digital multi-colored pinwheel lights to create the perfect ambiance. All features controlled with touch of a button via the wireless remote. Plenty of outdoor seating on loungers and chairs. The backyard has a large gas BBQ for afternoon or evening grilling. House works great for multiple families.

The house is centrally located and accessible, yet is nestled in a very exclusive, quiet, and private neighborhood. All major attractions including airport are within 15 minutes away. Watch the Sea World fireworks every night during the Summer. New Years Eve is absolutely incredible with multiple firework displays going off all over the city. Great vacation home!

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!!

Great Spot in SD

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights/3 days and this house was the perfect fit for us. Beautiful inside and spectacular back yard. The pool and slide and basketball were great and everything in the house was well maintained and clean. Amazing views of PB and Mission Beach. A short uber ride to Vons and the beach. Quinn was very responsive and accommodating through out the weekend. All amenities were clearly marked in the welcoming book and easy to use.

Thanks again for letting us use your home! Great Rental!

Great family vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

Great vacation home for families with a fantastic backyard pool, water slide and spa. Kitchen was well equipped with dishes labelled outside (great for kids) and inside dishes. When I couldn't find the pool lights, I emailed Quinn and heard back from him the same night. Located close to Sea World and San Diego

Zoo, it was perfect for all ages. Baskets of toys for children, impressive collection of kids' books and DVDs made our stay even more pleasant. Front deck gave us a great view of the nightly Sea World fireworks show. Would recommend this home to any family.

Personal backyard resort!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights with our two sons, 12 and 9, and it was wonderful! The backyard pool/slide/hot tub are heaven -- and the yard also has a basketball net, a hammock and swing, and other yard games and hang-out areas. It was such a dreamy, relaxing spot to spend a few days in San Diego. The inside of the house was very roomy, comfortable, and well-equipped (though we didn't do much cooking). A great rental!

Perfect for our young family

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely for our family vacation. We stayed with our two kids (ages 3 and 5) and one set of grandparents. House was spacious without being too big and had all the amenities we have in our home - even down to the ikea kids' plates! We lucked out and had some amazing winter heat, so the pool and hot tub (or hot pool as our daughter called it) were an absolute blessing. We would definitely recommend this property!

We spent a week here with our 4 year old and 16 month old. Everything was wonderful! The pool and the hot tub (what a view!!) Were enjoyed by all and the house has a wonderful layout for family time. This is the 3rd house we have rented this year, and this one blows the others away. It was clean, upgraded, had everything you could possibly want (including neat baskets filled with toys and shelves of books for parents and child), a view that will take your breathe away and a pool that is second to none. It was an amazing vacation and we plan to go back.
