About Scott Chipman

We are the Tuft Family. 1 Son, 4 Daughters. We have lived in and loved San Diego for many years. San Diego became our home after years of travelling the globe with our Navy Nurse Mother and Naval Aviator father when he was assigned as Operations Officer of NAS Miramar. San Diego is still home to 3 of the Tuft sisters and we love any chance to get the family together.

Scott Chipman purchased this house in 1968

Why Scott Chipman chose San Diego

This home was the site of countless family parties and celebrations (even a few weddings) and is a cherished spot for us all. Kids and grandkids ran and played in the backyard and playhouse. There were lots of Sunday BBQ's and great times with the cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We want to keep this home vibrant and in use - still making memories for other friends and families.

What makes this house unique

This is a quiet neighborhood with stunning views - The perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy San Diego. We hope you love it like we do.

Amazing property - Gorgeous View - every amenity one could imagine!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year I rented a vacation home for my family. Last year we had a terrible experience so I was a bit apprehensive about trying this again. I am happy to say this so much better than last year! We just got home from an awesome week away with my kids and grand kids. Everything was perfect. I didn't have to contact Scott once while we were there, he left complete instructions, everything was in working order, there were plenty of kitchen supplies, towels etc. for a large family to be comfortable. We had dinner on the Gazebo every night, the view was breathtaking! I was lucky enough to stay in the upper level master bedroom, the view of San Diego and the city lights was spectacular. Great neighborhood, quiet, markets close by and the house was right off the freeway with so many options for family activities. Lego Land, SD Zoo, Sea World or just sitting by the bay relaxing.

I would highly recommend this home to everyone, Scott was responsive, kind and was happy to accommodate any of our needs.

Thank you Scott - we are hoping to see you next summer again!

Great view and location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is very interesting with some great mid century modern pieces of furniture! The back deck is the perfect place for morning coffee, dinner or watching the sunset. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and appliances, we especially appreciated that there were lots of kid-specific utensils, plates and cups. The location is also great, central and just a couple minutes from the freeway. Most destinations are about a 10-15 minute drive-beach, zoo, cove, and downtown are easy to get to. You will see signs in the yards of the houses nearby about their dislike of rentals but we kept to ourselves and weren't really bothered. The property manager was quick to respond to our questions while staying at the property. It was a great property and my family is discussing staying there again next year!

Overlooking San Diego

  • 4 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home overlooking San Diego. Everything we needed was provided, the house was clean and well-maintained. The Ladies in my family said the only thing they would change is to update the furniture, other than that everything was fine. We would absolutely love to stay here again hopefully in the near future. The owner provided good customer service and i would definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Perfect place for our group

  • 5 of 5

The view of the bay and ocean are a gorgeous backdrop to a spacious comfortable home. With all adult family and friends there were plenty of areas to hang out together inside and out as well as areas to have a little quiet time. We learned that this is still owned by the family of the couple that lived there for many years. There are pictures and decorations throughout that remind you this house has been a home with much love and laughter over the years. It appears that the previous owners both served our country and we wanted to thank them and their family for that! We loved hanging out on the deck with the view! The neighbors are supporting the "neighborhoods are for neighbors, not vacation homes" initiative but we never had any negative interaction with them. We did be sure to keep to the no outside noise after 10pm rule! We are hoping to do this again next year and this is the home we would choose.

Not quite up to the standards and price asking......

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this home! There were some concerns that need to be addressed if we ever stay here again.

1) The house was not adequately cleaned. Lots of fingerprints on the TV, trash under the elevator, jam on the kitchen table top. We would really like to start our little re-treat with a clean house!

2) We had 6 women and there were less then 2 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom and no tissue or extra toilet paper anywhere in the house.

3) Most disturbing was used soap in every bathroom! We have rented several houses through VRBO and this was a first with not having new wrapped (sample size would be fine!) soap.

4) The circuit breakers went out twice and it took a while for Scott getting back to me. (Who knew they were behind a picture in the laundry room?)

All this information was passed on twice to the manager Scott Chipman, but he never returned or acknowleged either email. I really did not want to have to review this property negatively, but for future interested parties, I felt it was important to do so.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all input and suggestions. This review is entirely uncharacteristic of any review we have have in the past or since. The house is thoroughly cleaned by a 3 person crew after each visit and an owner inspects the house after each stay. Often groups arrive in shifts at different times of the day and that may have accounted for some of the finger prints. I am available via cell phone voice or text at all times and respond within 1 hour to any question. The soap is in the kitchen and baths are in pump dispensers. A call about a circuit breaker was answered promptly. A call for more toilet paper would have been promptly responded to as well as we keep inventory on site at all times.
