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.

San Diego rental

  • 3 of 5

The house is lovely with lots of room for families with kids.The location is ideal. However, there is a really strong musty smell that we could not eliminate--even with lots of doors and windows open. Now our clothes all smell musty. During the rain, the house leaked quite badly in two places and the lights in the family room kept going on and off. Also, the kitchen needs new frying pans and lots more large cooking and serving spoons. The house just needs lots more TLC.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to see water leaking in on the back side of the house and refunded rent for the days of the leak. San Diego, and much of California, had record rains and winds last month. We discovered that an upstairs door threshold drains were clogged with dirt. The wetness in the ceiling also caused a musty smell. Both have been resolved.

Loved our stay at Outlook West!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home for families to come together. The living space is very comfortable and welcoming, and the views of San Diego, Mission Bay, and the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking! Everything was in order for our arrival and Scott was great to work with!

Beautiful view, Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was stocked with almost anything one needed. We did purchase paper products and garbage bags. I suspect like us, other guests left extra paper items. With the exception of neighbor's signs that were not welcoming renters, the neighborhood was quiet, well-maintained, and no one bothered us. The home is well-maintained, but beware of the commode in the master bath. It overflowed and it due to an emergency it took a couple of days before someone returned our call for help. Thankfully, there were some cleaning products on hand, only one incident and then it worked as expected and apologies were offered to us. The laundry room has a full w/d which was a wonderful convenience. The home offers a patio in front (we did not use due to the signs), and an absolutely gorgeous rear view. Even lovelier than the photos. The elevator is beautiful and helpful for an injured family member. The home was not far from UCSD, stores, coffee shops and grocery store. It felt welcoming, like home. Sitting under the gazebo for breakfast and was also a perfect respite after graduation ceremony. Did I mention the amazing view , day and night. The owner also offered so many helpful tips and was readily available for questions. The patio was a nice area to sit outside with a glass of wine and many places to just sit and read. There were 4 of us and the home is so spacious, that there were spaces for all to simultaneously study, work, play, relax. This home contributed to a week of lovely memories for us at graduation. Highly recommended!

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carlton, We a glad your family enjoyed their stay. Much of the furniture is original to our family. A few pieces are classic mid century modern and those are being restored. A few others are being replaced as they age. We look forward to your family returning in the future. Scott
