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 North Pacific Beach

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!

Your own private water park!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! A lovely home in an upscale neighborhood overlooking San Diego and Mission Bay.

When I saw the photos of the pool, waterslides, and jacuzzi, I was a bit skeptical. Well, have no fear; they are all real and even cooler than the photos. We had a 2 year old and a 4 year old, and they -- and the adults -- had a blast. This place could almost be a destination resort in its own right. In the evening you can walk to the top of the water slides to sit and enjoy a spectacular sunset over Mission Bay.

The hosts, Michael and April, were wonderful. April even contacted me a week ahead and asked the ages of the kids so she could be sure we had the right pool toys, and the afternoon of our arrival her son dropped off additional pool toys!

They have thought of everything you will need for a comfortable visit. It is so nice to arrive and not have to run to the store for essentials like salt and pepper, coffee filters, paper towels, soap, and the like. Best of all, there was an ample supply of big, plush towels (the pool, remember?) and an industrial size dryer to keep them warm and dry.

The beds are comfortable, there is a large living room, and the dining room features a large table ideal for group dinners.

A great vacation all around.

Great pool and water slides, don't plan on cooking at 'home'

  • 3 of 5

We just spent 5 days at this home in North Pacific Beach. As hoped for, the pool and water features were the real high light. The outdoor couches and umbrellas made it our favorite spot to be. We enjoyed relaxing mornings and leisurely afternoons by the pool. The bedrooms are a good size. Comfy beds and sheets. The kitchen and bathrooms are very outdated. We were very disappointed in the condition of the utensils, pots, pans and grill. Barely usable. I know this property is rented every day for the rest of this summer. I think a quick trip to costco or target to invest in some pots and pans would be terrific for the other guests coming this summer. Grill maintenance a must.

My kids were very disappointed that the wifi did not work. (I was happy! less screen time on snap chat).

Owner's Response: We are so sorry there were some things you felt needed upgrading. We carry a stock of new items in case things gets worn or damaged we can quickly replace them. I wish we would have known while you were there so we could have accommodated you right away. It looks like a pot and a pan were damaged so we replaced the entire set when we saw your review. We also ordered two new burners for the grill. We checked the WiFi and found the password had been changed and that's why you were not able to use it. I'm glad that worked in your favor with the kids. I would have felt the same way. As much as we try to check everything in between our guests we fell short in your case. I hope you accept our apology and call us next time you are in San Diego and we'll make it up to you in a discount on your next rental. All the best to you. April & Mike

Our Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful vacation on your property!! The outdoor setting was so great, we had a hard time pulling youngsters away from the pool to go to Disneyland! We appreciated having beach towels provided, loved being able to all eat at once at the big dining room table, and everyone had their own bed!! My oldest son said he is never staying in a hotel again. Thank you for providing our family with so many precious memories of all being together for a week. Pat M

Amazing Pool

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent vrbo user there were some things that made our stay at this home really stand out. The show stopper is of course the pool. While the weather wasn't the warmest for us (low 60s and rainy most the week) that still didn't keep the kids ages 12-3 out of the well heated pool. Even their Grandma (age 66 had to give the slides a try). The home itself was spotless upon arrival and it may be a small thing but we were really impressed on how well stocked this house was prior to our arrival. We've stayed at several homes the past 6 years and most are picked clean w/ no everyday supplies (tp, paper towels, seasonings for cooking etc....). They also have a plentiful supply of towels for the pool and bathrooms which also isn't always a given. The pool house looks to have been remodeled to provide extra space for larger groups. We had 9 people and chose to use the pool house so that the kids all got their own beds. Whoever stays in the pool house will need to keep an open mind as it isn't as comfortable as the main house but it did serve as a nice retreat for someone that doesn't want to get up at 6am with all the kids.

Locaction was great as well, seemed like everywhere we wanted to visit was a short 15-20 minute drive. We really enjoyed Little Italy area, the zoo, safari park and La Jolla areas. The beach is also just a few minute drive but the weather kept us away on this trip.

Nice home, amazing pool/hot tub area, great location. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our vacation rental and for the kind review. You had me smiling at the part where you said grandma went down the slide too. One thing we love the most about renting out our vacation home is all of the special memories that are created by families like yours. We look forward to seeing your family next time you visit San Diego!.
