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 Bay Ho

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.

Perfect home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect home to rent in San Diego.

The home is gorgeous and the views are stunning. This location was also ideal for us to see the sights in San Diego. Our primary reason for visiting was to tour the University of San Diego for our oldest daughter. It was very easy to travel to the University of San Diego, the zoo, and parks and entertainment around Mission Bay.

We had a welcome basket and note upon our arrival which was really very much appreciated. I cannot think of a more perfect home and location for any visit to San Diego: we loved our stay!

Everything we were looking for in a home

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 10 and found this home to be everything we needed. It was spacious and beautiful. The house was stocked with ample sheets, towels, pillow, and all the amenities we needed. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and I look forward to it! The owner, Scott, is very kind and easy to reach. The one thing that I will comment on was the way the neighbor across the street responded to our presence. As soon as we unpacked the car, she stood outside on her lawn staring us down and continued to watch us through the window. This is the same neighbor that has signs against vacation rentals and we read from other reviewers has caused some issues in the past. We didn't experience this with her but spent much of the weekend concerned about it. Otherwise, the house was amazing and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

Great family home with a captivating view

  • 5 of 5

Pros: large upstairs master suite with a panoramic view of the San Diego Bay, two separate living areas, fenced backyard with playhouse and gazebo overlooking SD, clean, well supplied with toys for young children including a crib in the master bedroom down stairs, great location, close to I-5.

Cons: hot tub did not heat up, could use a little TLC (lock on bathroom door in downstairs master needs to be replaced, back of house would benefit from some outside maintenance, playhouse dutch door is missing the bottom half), signs in some of the neighbors yards against short-term vacation rentals.

Wonderful property with spacious home!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view of bay/ocean and city all day/night. I would recommend this location! My family was there for our daughters wedding and the upstairs master bedroom was used for make up and getting ready! Lots of room and upper balcony. There was street construction but it wasn't too much of an issue. My family LOVED this home, its history and the hot tub! If you wish to sleep in be sure to have eye masks.
