About Michael and April

I am a native San Diegan who dreamed of living at the beach. In 2000 my husband and I fulfilled that dream when we purchased our first home. We have raised our family and a dog named Kona in our house over the past 11 years. Living the San Diego lifestyle at the beach with beautiful weather and unlimited outdoor activities at our doorstep has truly been a dream fulfilled.

Michael and April purchased this house in 2000

Why Michael and April chose San Diego County

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw the spectacular 180 degree 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, but is close to everything San Diego has to offer. There is something to do for children of all ages. You are minutes from the famous San Diego Zoo, historic Balboa Park, Belmont Park (roller coaster), Legoland and looking outside the front window you can Sea World. At night you can enjoy the fireworks from Sea Word. You can ride bikes to the beach and enjoy every water sport imaginable. If you are looking for night life its minutes away as well in Downtown's Gaslamp District, Garnet Ave in Pacific Beach or on Prospect in La Jolla.

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 owner

We have had a great time here in San Diego. All the way from Ontario, Canada. It was great to leave behind the snow and cold, and enjoy your sunshine. The house was terrific! The pool & hot tub were a BIG HIT! The kids were always ready to leave the zoo, Legoland, or whatever to head back to THE POOL! Thank you!

Absolutely Amazing Location and House

  • 5 of 5

This house is not only amazing if your heading to San Diego its central to everything you probably want to do at the most 15 min drive to most activities. House was on a hill top in a very residential area and beleive me when I say you can see the ocean and lights at Sea World from the master bedroom its amazing. This house had everything you could think of and lots of extras for small kids and babies, plenty of towels, toys, games and even extra furniture you might need for your baby (beds, high chair etc). All you have to do is fill up the fridge and basically enjoy your stay because everything you may need other than food is provided. The OUTSIDE of course for all children and adults is just the best its like you have your own water park right in your private back yard really you DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR HOUSE TO HAVE A GREAT DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY. We normally don't rent the same house twice but both me and my husband said we would defenitely rent this house again without a doubt. Last the owners are wonderful and always respond wihin minutes to anything you may need (door knobs move up not down) but other than that everything is self explanitory you won't have to bug the owners.

Big thak you to April and Michael for sharing your lovely home with me and my family.

Incredible Vacation for 3 Generations!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for myself, my two daughters, my son-in-laws and 6 grandchildren. The combination of the home and the casita pool house gave us plenty of comfortable room for our large family. I had mentioned in my conversation with April while booking the house that it was my birthday and I wanted a destination vacation with my family to celebrate. She gave us some spot on suggestions on places to go and things to do to make our stay and my birthday memorable. I would highly recommend the French Gourmet. They catered a gourmet birthday dinner for all 11 of us in the home. The experience of the house, the hospitality of April & Michael and the endless activities to choose for all age groups in San Diego made this the most memorable vacation I have ever experienced. We will definitely return.

I have to mention since I just read the review from the guest that apparently left before us that his review is completely the opposite from our experience. We did not experience any maintenance issue, any appliance issues or other items inoperable or in need of repairs. We used all of the baby items including the pack n play and they were all in good operational condition. Michael was very attentive meeting us at the house to make sure all of our questions were answered and to let us know they live a block away in case we needed anything further. It was apparent April and Michael takes pride in their vacation home, keeping everything in good condition and in making sure we had an enjoyable stay. We will definitely make this an annual destination vacation for our family.

After attempting to collect a reasonable return of my investment for this overpriced rental property, I am finding myself having to file a review that reflects the time spent at this home. The pool is a nice feature and the vicinity to activities is actually the one true draw to the home. However, the home is poorly maintained, has non functional appliances and accommodations. The BBQ caught fire on our first night and was never cleaned or property maintained prior to our arrival. The ventilation in the home is unbearable. My wife required to wet a towel with cold water in order to try and get some sleep at night. The owners solution were two swamp coolers that were leaking and clearly never maintained. The fans and leaving windows open is not reasonable for many reasons including safety for families and kids. The neighboring homes were having parties until past 3am. The accommodations for kids (pack and play) were broken and collapsed during the evening with our 18month old sleeping in one. The slides that are attached to the pool are note really suitable for young kids as they are steep. The furniture that was provided to look at the ocean all were broken and clearly never maintained. This advertisement is very misleading and the property is very overpriced given the condition of the home. Please be cautious with this property!!!!!

Owner's Response: I agree with this review that the water slides are not toddler toys and are probably not suitable for babies and toddlers to go down by themselves. I was not aware that when he rented the house he thought the babies could go down by themselves. We have photos that show the slides and a video showing my son going down the slide on the site. This was the renter's main issue and we were accused daily of false advertising in regards to the slides. Every child is different, but I want to make sure future renters are aware they are real water slides and in my opinion not designed for babies and toddlers to go without adults. We pride ourselves on giving our guests a great vacation experience in a well maintained home. We live nearby in this upscale quiet neighborhood and are available for maintenance and to provide what our guests need. I disagree with the rest of the review. We responded quickly to every want from this couple including extra locks for the windows, locks for the fence that went from the back yard to the front, his wife has allergies and didn't like the portable air cooler units so we went out and purchased new fans for them, she felt the grill wasn't clean enough so we had our housekeepers come out and clean it again, we were told that wasn't good enough so we had the annual grill maintenance company come out and take the entire outdoor grill apart so every piece of it was spotless in the interior at our cost of course. They said the gas was it turned up all the way and that accounted for the larger flames. We spent an extra $485 purchasing everything they requested trying to make them happy. We offered to find another home nearby for them and we would pay for it, but they refused our offer. I am not sure how bad our place was if they didn't want to leave. We are grateful for the hundreds of wonderful guests that have enjoyed our home. Unfortunately in this case we could not make this couple happy.

A beautiful home in a beautiful location! The adults and children in our party loved the pool!

  • 5 of 5

The pool at this house made it worth every penny. The water slides and spa were the best part! The kids and the adults enjoyed both! The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed to prepare and eat meals. Plenty of towels for the pool. Be sure to climb to the top of the pool and sit at the little bar to watch fireworks at night over the bay. Amazing.

Perfect week, wonderful backyard and pool

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week in San Diego for baseball all-star game and a great vacation rental for our entire family and grandkids . Great place to stay and great owners . Mike the owner meet us when we arrived. He even replaced the master bedroom with a brand new king size bed which was so appreciated . It's located within short distance to anything you would want to see or do. Neighborhood it's located in is quiet and plenty of parking . We loved the outdoor grill area and eating meals outside there is plenty of room for everyone . The pool and slides and hot tubs make it feel like your own private resort . Lots of open space in living room for all to sit and grandkids to run around . The home was clean and everything we needed was there . If you have concerns or problem the owners leave you their personal number and it's handled quickly . 7 adults and 4 children under 4 fit in the house perfectly . Thanks mike for making it a great week !

Relaxing, beautiful backyard.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this VRBO before and it never disappoints. Backyard has a gorgeous waterpark-like feature that the kids enjoyed over 12 hours of swimming fun a day. Fun for all ages. Our group varied from age 4 months to 73 years old. We had a family of 7 stay at this location and other family stay in the house directly beside us for a family reunion. We cooked a majority of our meals in the outdoor dining space and enjoyed eating meals outside on umbrellaed tables. Large dining room table for our card playing tournaments. Beds are comfortable and plenty of room for us to all spread out. The owners are very gracious. Mike was there to greet us when we arrived and show us around. Owners live close so are able to help almost immediately if an issue should arise. Beautiful quiet neighborhood. Easy to get to from airport and easy place to drive quickly to the beach, downtown La Jolla, San Diego, etc. Highly recommend this VRBO.
