About The Owner

My name is Richard Norwood and I just built my first vacation rental at my Property on Tourmaline St. I have spent over two months going over every detail and I am excited to say that I am very pleased with the product and I am excited to share it with the upcoming guests. I have been in Real Estate for over 10 years. After I graduated from UCLA, I was a high school teacher and would eventually like to go back into teaching, however, Real Estate has always paid the bills. I also own an operate an outdoor adventure company, sending clients all over the world. I am an avid fisherman and love my two dogs Sadie and Mia.

Please don't hesitate to ask about the many local experiences we can offer our clients.

ex. Bonfire at the beach, Catered Dinner at the Beach, Fishing Trips, kayaking, San Diego Tours and much more!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2002

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

I recently had to move from this home for work and decided that the location was so fantastic, that I wanted to spend the money and make this Home a charming and beautiful place to have a beach get-a-way. I meet people all the time that get a hotel room is a sparse area of San Diego and have always thought how much more you could get for you money if you booked a Vacation Rental near the beach!

What makes this townhome unique

The location to the beach is amazing as well as the neighborhood setting. It is a perfect blend of the beach lifestyle, quiet residential feel, and proximity to everything PB has to offer!

Great First Weekend of 2014

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place in PB to stay with a few friends to visit our buddy in the Navy. This townhouse was a great find and was one of the best priced homes that I found. The owner Richard was easy to get in touch with and made himself available for all my questions. The home itself is just about 1 mile north of Garnett and Mission. We found it really easy to explore PB both during the day and at night. A cab ride back from dinner and the bars was about $7. The home is fully stocked with what you need for a short or long stay. The couch can probably fit 8 people comfortably and the dinner table seats 6. Richard made the whole process easy for getting into the property and for checking out. There is a dedicated parking space in the back of the house and you can find additional parking on the nearby streets. We will definitely be staying here again! Thanks again Richard!

Excellent Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

WE had a wonderful time at our VRBO residence. The place was exactly as advertised. We had no surprises, other than good ones. We arrived early into town and they were able to accommodate our early arrival. Everything was clean and bright. There were no hassles and the refund was returned promptly. I would stay there again for sure or at any of the owners other rentals. Everything we needed was close by and convenient such as grocery stores, restaurants, coffee and of course the beach. Thanks for the week Richard.

  • 5 of 5


This is the first time our family used VRBO. We were very pleased with everything! I was very impressed that we told you the bikes had a flat and the next thing you know; someone was there to fix it. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to be close to the beach. The best thing of all is My sister and her family were right next door. What a vacation we had!!! Not sure why but the wifi kept going out, but, I wasn't there to be plugged into the world. Thanks Richard. You made a memorable vacation for us.

Great House and Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

If you love to surf this is the place for you! Walking distance to Tourmaline beach - what else could you ask for. We had 2 families stay at the beach house - 4 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of space for us. We also rented the studio across from us (same owners) for my parents. Having boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes was a huge benefit so we didn't have to drag everything with us. The sheets / towels and other amenities were good quality and everything was nice and clean. There is a shower outside for washing off sand which was helpful since the kids were covered in sand every time we returned from the beach. Another huge benefit was the air conditioning - most beach houses don't have it, and when we arrived the humidity and heat in San Diego was unusually high. Having air was a life saver.

We would definitely stay here or another property of San Diego Property Rentals again!

Amazing beach house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is beautiful and perfect for a family vacation together. The location is wonderful. The beach is an easy walk which is key with beach parking always tough to find. The beach at base of Tourmaline I think is for surfers but a few blocks down there are great beaches for swimming. The beach chairs and beach towels provided were much appreciated. We loved being in Pacific Beach. Tourmaline is a quiet residential street but Shopping is close by. Our favorite place was Fig Tree Cafe 1 1/2 blocks away - a must for breakfast .

The unit worked perfectly for our family of 6 - 2 20 something sons with their fiancées. Everyone had their own spaces - bedrooms are comfortable and good sized. Very good quality linens and towels. I think the downstairs bathroom must have been recently redone- it is beautiful. We especially appreciated the common area. Couches were very comfy and with 3 of them we all could lounge around large flat screen tv at end of day. There is wifi so we were able to bring and use our Apple TV . The kitchen was well appointed and we loved having the gas grill.

We would definitely like to stay here again

Great Space

  • 5 of 5

The 3 bedrooms provided plenty of space for our party of 5. The location is close to the beach and major attractions in the area. We appreciated having the nice BBQ grill to cook on. Central air conditioning was a plus on a very hot weekend. My deposit was returned promptly. I would recommend this property to others.
