About Your Hosts

Your Host(s)

Dave has happily been hosting travelers since 2012!
His side crew, Leslie, Makenna, and Frank (all San Diego natives, well, other than Frank) all work hard to make your vacation exceed your expectations.

The property has been Dave's vision and ongoing project since he bought it around 1993 when it was nothing more than a beat up house and a yard full of weeds. He and his friends built his tropical dream yard where he enjoyed entertaining and many night swims.

Years later, enter Leslie and we transformed the house into a rental when we thought we were going to be transfered out of state. The transfer never happened but the house became so popular that we chose to allow people to continue to enjoy all that we've put into it. We officially moved off site.

Over the years, Dave has continued to add to his vision, hoping our guests will enjoy the contstant upgrades, with everything from a new koi pond, solar everything, palapas, bamboo accents throughout, upgraded sound system, marble counters, new appliances, even down to Amazon Alexa in every room and the outdoor tiki bar! Makenna and Frank have since all joined in to help get the house ready for guests and to try to keep up with Dave's never-ending projects. ;)

Depsite the constant upkeep and additions, it's important to us to keep the price of the rental reasonable so families can enjoy time together in what we feel is a much better choice than separate hotel rooms. We love meeting our guests and hope you like staying in our home!
