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!

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.

Perfect family vacation spot...

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's 2nd year staying at this lovely home and the kids already asked to come back again next year. The home is in a quiet neighborhood with great views. The homes has everything you can need and the backyard is a kid's dream and great for adults to BBQ and just hang out. Our family never left the home this year since the pool and the waterslides were what the kids wanted to come back to this year. The owner was great to work with and very responsive. Before our arrival, the owner contacted us of a very minor plumbing problem in the downstairs bathroom, which she sent a plumber right away to fix. Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family again this year. We hope to return again in a very near future.

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay was wonderful! Great house in a quiet neighborhood and an amazing view overlooking Mission Bay. The house had everything we needed and the pool and hot tub spa were not to be missed. Good location, accessible to everything in a short drive, groceries, beach, downtown, whatever you want! Both owners were very wonderful to work with and very accommodating.

Amazing Pool and Backyard

  • 5 of 5

april 2016

Our family just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved it. It is within a 15 minute drive to Petco, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, La Jolla, Torrey Pines and Coronado. The view from the house is fantastic. Our kids (age 14,13 and 11) loved the pool. They loved spending the day sight-seeing and coming home to swim in the beautiful pool. It is as nice if not nicer than the pictures online. The house is clean and Michael and April were very good to deal with. If we did not live on the opposite coast we would be back in a heartbeat.

A fantastic 5 star dream vacation for families

  • 5 of 5

Grandpa and Grandma took our family of 9 on a Spring vacation, dream vacation. Our family stayed 8 nights from March 19-27, 2016. Michael and Aprils vacation home fit our needs perfectly. We must address the back yard first. The picture on the VRBO site is as pictured. We could have spent the 8 days in the back yard and we all would have been content. The clean vacation rental home is located in a very quiet neighborhood with a beautiful view of Mission Bay. The upstairs master suite has a spectacular view of the evening lights of San Diego. The home is located centrally to all attractions (to save money check into buying Go Cards San Diego). The living room and dining area fit all 9 of us very comfortably with room to spare. Excellent customer service from owners Michael and April. The process of making reservations was very simple and easy as was the checking in and out procedures. We have and will continue to recommend this property to all family and friends.
