Very nice house, not too far from the beach. Friendly owners, helpful and overall good communication.
Positives: Clean, spacious, all included (utensils, organic detergents, washers and so on). Jacuzzi!
Negatives: Noisy from the constant planes flying over the house (especially in the evening/night). Warm inside the house, no bug net on all the windows, couldn't have everything open in the nighttime.
Awkward moment: Didn't get any info that there will be grass cutting on a saturday morning, with guys actually coming inside the house area.
Everything about our stay here was fab! The house was exactly as I expected it to be, even better actually. My husband, 4 kids and I absolutely loved everything about it. Garden was amazing and we were happy to spend a couple of days just hanging out there with the hot tub and the BBQ! Everything you could need was there. Couldn't recommend it highly enough and hope to be back some day. Great location too
This was a great place to stay, very comfortable and conveniently located. The house was a nice size and had everything we were looking for. Property manager was very responsive to our inquiry about an extra fan - and even brought one over within a few hours of our request! Couldn't ask for anything more! :)
Good place to stay in San Diego with kids. We stayed for one week and had a good time. Everything is just a short ride away and the garden has much privacy.
Wonderful house - spacious and very comfortable! Had everything we needed. Fantastic backyard to relax in! We had a great time and will be returning for sure!! Property Manager, Scott, dropped in just to check in to see how everything was - very nice and helpful!
Thanks to Rebecca, David, and Makenna for sharing their space with us!

Rebecca left awesome details of the house and the area so we were able to navigate around with no issues. We had a problem with the hot tub but called her contact who gave us a fix and the kids were back in the hot tub in no time. The house is so peaceful and relaxing - master bedroom is amazing with the doors open looking out into the tropical back yard, you are literally transported away. There is definitely an island feel in the house.
We had never stayed in Point Loma and now we will probably never stay anywhere else. It's laid back, small beach town vibe is all you could ever want on vacation. Yet It's not far from anywhere in San Diego you would want to go. The tide pools at Sunset Cliffs & Cabrillo National Monument were so fun with the kids - We were there for a week and had so much stuff to see and do we didnt even need to do the theme parks - Sea World etc. We did head over to Knotts Berry Farm with the kids since Rebecca was so gracious to leave us tickets for our family. Thanks again!!
Amazing house and an amazing town.
This is the PERFECT vacation house! We stayed here with our two children 10 and 2 for a week in July. The home has everything you could want or need, is very well kept and very clean. We spent many hours outside in the patio relaxing and enjoying dinner there. The owners have gone far to make sure your stay is great including menus, maps and local hot spots around San Diego! Perfectly located, close to beach and within short drive to all San Diego's attractions. The home is very quiet and peaceful which was much enjoyed. I can't say enough, our trip was perfect!

About the Host, Rebecca
Welcome! It's me, Rebecca B and I LOVE the desert and the tropics. Go figure.
We have 2 homes available for rent on AirBnB. Our year-round rental is RockHouse Retreat and has become quite the popular desert pad. Here's a little history. So, I found this stunning "compound" for sale near Joshua Tree at the end of 2009 and was able to use my amazing powers of persuasion to convince my mother and brother to purchase it sight unseen and leave New York to relocate to the wonderland of the high desert.
OK...so, MAYBE my powers of persuasion had NOTHING AT ALL to do with it. My mother has always been obsessed with the desert and was truly the one who nurtured my connection and passion for this land. You see, she's a rock hound and has a crazy cool connection and fascination with the history of the West. My brother can't get enough of the endless off-roading and hiking adventures.
Originially RockHouse was intended as a desert escape for the family, but at the very end of 2011 we decided to share the joys of the property and land and made it available through AirBnB. And so glad we did!!! We've met some really cool folks (and their pets!) who share a love for adventure and the outdoors.
So I present to you my mother and brother, Cheryl and Nick, who are now the fantastically chill hosts for your stay at RockHouse. They live in a completely separate home on the same 2.5+ acre property and keep out of your hair, unless you need them.
Our other AirBnB rental in San Diego, is our primary residence and is only available for one month of the summer and one week after Christmas. It's 5 blocks to the beach in the groovy and laid back community of Point Loma / Ocean Beach. Super central and close to all the great attractions San Diego has to offer.
A little about me. I live in San Diego, but spend A LOT of time up at RockHouse to decompress, recharge and connect with my little family and friends. I am a social entrepreneur, digital creator, student of life, adventurous, kind 'n quirky mama, wife & friend. Traveling renews and energizes me. A BIG fan of the desert (surprise!) and the tropics - go figure. We spend a month every year on the north shore of Kauai....so hit me up if you have any recommendations, connections, etc.
I'm a lover of Fair Trade and FIRST Robotics. Meditation, yoga and running nurtures my body and soul and calms the monkeys in my mind. Exploring and learning about photography is my guilty pleasure.
