Million Dollar Testimonial
This is a testimonial about a couple that was going to have to sell their property in a down real estate market and would have lost over a million dollars from what the house was worth at its peak. Pacific Coast Vacation Properties helped the couple convert the property into an income producing asset as a vacation rental!
I wanted to write to you and any prospective owners who may be considering vacation rental companies to manage their vacation rental. First, I have to say that there is no science to this business and I have learned this the hard way. Every house has different requirements. As most homeowners have experienced, homes always need repairs and costly fixes. This brings me to my first point. You have gone above and beyond to find air conditioning companies to repair & replace the air conditioning system installed by the now out of business HVAC company. I have to say that it would have been IMPOSSIBLE for me to do all the research on pumps and compressors while living in Italy. Meeting the variety of companies to accumulate the quotes for repairs was extremely timely and I really can't thank you enough for all your service.
Now that we have covered the AC problems (and there have been dozens over 2 years), you have always maintained your professional demeanor with the guests when they were disappointed to find out they had no AC. I think in every case, you handled the guests with the best possible finesse. Problems will always come up and it's how they are dealt with is a true measure of the management company.
As you know, I was with a different vacation rental company before you and I was extremely disappointed. I was impressed by the size of her company and all her staff. All her answers to questions were perfect. Having said that, after a few months of excuses and reasons why she could not book my house after promises to rent it for tons of money and high occupancy rates. Immediately after switching my business to you, the reservations started flowing in. You were able to book my house for great rates and booked reservations even in the off season enough to pay my mortgage, expenses and repairs (and then some) every month.
I would be very happy to discuss my experience working with you with any potential vacation rental owners who are currently searching for their vacation rental manager. I have learned so much, if I can help them cut to the bottom line, I would be happy to do that. Let's just say the proof is in the reservations and you have done an amazing job managing my house.
Thank you for saving my house from having to be sold. Now I have a business that will be my retirement in the future. Not only am I building equity in the house, I am making money monthly on the house. It hasn't all been roses, but it has been worth the difficult times and all the risk has paid off. Thank you!
We are very satisfied with the management of our rental property in Capri-by-the-Sea by Pacific Coast Vacation Properties, owned by Greg Ross. When we purchased our condo in December, 2012, we had never had a vacation rental and didn’t know quite what to expect. Since we did not want the hassle of finding suitable renters, collecting rents and fees, and cleaning and maintenance, we started an internet search for someone to manage the property. We studied several internet sites and interviewed three property managers. The website PacificCoastVacationProperties.com was very well done and informative, especially under the “about us” tab. We made an appointment to meet with Greg and he came to our home in Rancho Santa Fe. We found him to be very personable and were impressed with his internet experience and organizational skills. Of importance to us is the fact that he lives locally so he or one of his staff is readily available to answer questions or to go to the condo 24/7 when a guest has a problem. Due to Greg’s thorough advertising, our condo has been rented ~85% of the time (giving us time for little get-aways there). Since prospective renters are prescreened, we have had very few problems. We have always received a check during the first week of the month and if anything needs to be purchased or a specialist needs to be called in for a repair, we are notified immediately. We highly recommend Pacific Coast Vacation Properties.

We enjoyed meeting Greg and really appreciated the wine and the excellent local recommendations he gave us.
This condo is extremely comfortable and spacious and the view is killer. We loved that we could leave the sliders open all night and hear the waves. The location is excellent, so many dining and drinking options within walking distance. We enjoyed meeting the property manager and appreciated his excellent recommendations. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

We loved out stay at Capri By the Sea #612! It was just as wonderful as described with the best views and amenities. The unit was so clean, down to the sponge in the sink and the linens. There were ample toiletries - more than your usual rental - with laundry soap, dishwasher soap as an added plus! We were able to completely relax in this wonderful unit. Everything is within walking distance and we didn't even drive until we (sadly) had to leave. Greg was responsive and prompt to meet us to check in. We appreciated the personal tour of the property and orientation to our surroundings. We will certainly stay here again.

This is the second home I have rented from Greg and I hope won't be the last. He and his team have always been very professional and friendly. Any questions I had before we arrived were always answered promptly. Couldn't have asked for better customer service.
This little Crown Point Gem is just that, a little gem. Our daughter wanted to have a beach weekend with some friends before she went to boot camp. This home was the perfect size and in a great location. It is stocked with everything you need and plenty of towels. I know that for a fact because I think the girls had to grab two new towels every time they took a shower! Sorry about that one Greg! The garage was stocked with all the beach amenities we needed as well as some bicycles. We took full advantage of the grill and hot tub in the back yard. Both were extra nice to come back to after a day at the beach and sailing. You won't go wrong with this home. Enjoy!

Greg helped me all the way! I was a bit of a pest, due to almost falling for a scam. So i was a bit gun shy. Greg kept giving me the info I needed. I really appreciate it! It was unseasonable hot in San Diego, Greg called and let me know he was having windows open to help with air movement. How nice is that!!
The property was perfect. The owner has everything needed. Pacific coast sent messages to keep me informed, reassured me about my choice. Half a block from the beach and amazingly comfortable. We will be back to this property and will always search Pacific Coast first for our vacation needs. Already telling friends!!!

Our family shared this home with 2 other families while we were all in town for our boys World Series Baseball Tournament! The house was well laid out, with room for everyone. The boys loved the pool table room, which they took over! We had relaxing evenings around the pool BBQing and enjoying a cocktail! The location of the house was perfect! All shopping and restaurants were very close and easy to access. We all felt at home in this property. The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil we needed! We enjoyed preparing gourmet meals, and sitting around the table playing card games. If we ever find ourselves vacationing in the San Diego area again, we would rent this property again!

It was obvious that Greg is very involved personally and takes pride in his business to make certain his renters have a good experience. Since our flight arrived several hours prior to check in time, we were very pleased that we were allowed to stop by and drop off our luggage while the cleaning crew was there.
The property was just as advertised, if not better. The photos of the property depicted it perfectly so that there were no unpleasant surprises when we arrived.

Everything was excellent, from the ease of booking, to the rental itself. We couldn't have asked for a better trip, and a large majority of that was the property, the amenities, and the ease of booking, ticket purchase, and the lack of worry! Thank you for making this such a wonderful and stress-free trip!

I did have a problem initially in making my reservation over the Fourth of July weekend where the website first allowed me to book a 4-day stay when the owner apparently had specified stays of 5 days. I'm assuming that has now been changed in the system. Your staff graciously helped me to make adjustments to correct my reservation.
The location of this property is perfect for hitting the beach, walking the boardwalk, or driving into La Jolla. For our family, it was a return to the beaches we visited for our family vacations starting 30 years ago, this time sharing these memories with our grandchildren.

We enjoyed staying at the rental on Ingraham. The home was cozy and had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was well- stocked from dishes to spices. There were several boogie boards, beach chairs, beach mats, and beach towels that we used almost everyday. The rental was close to the bay and the beach. There is a cute little coffee shop less than a block away, a grocery store less than 5 minutes away, and the best pizza we have ever had (Sandbox) about 5 minutes away. The jacuzzi was more than big enough for all eight of us and a nice, relaxing activity after a day at the beach. Great central beach rental!

I spoke with Greg and a staff member before arriving. I received and email from the owner before arriving. All communications were quick, efficient, clearly articulated and polite. I felt very at ease and confident that everything would go smoothly. I was pleasantly surprised that it was even easier than I expected.
Staying at Michael's home was like visiting an easy going friend. His house was laid out well all on one level and not too spread out. With a limit of 6 adults, there is plenty of space. We were a party of 4 so we only shared with only one other person. The back yard patio was an extension of the kitchen for extra dining space. The yard was totally enclosed by a high vine covered fence with grassy area for children to play. I watched the humming birds flit around the plants and bushes every morning. It is a lovely quiet and safe neighborhood with the elementary school directly across the street.

Angelina was extremely helpful in making sure we received all of our documents as we progressed through the booking, contract and final payment process. She provided alternative phone numbers in the event that we could not reach anyone in the office, and was instrumental in arranging a visit to the property by the manager to address some minor issues with electronics and a couple of other things. She called us soon after our arrival to welcome us to the home and offer her assistance if needed during our stay. Greg was also very helpful and courteous when he responded out to the house to troubleshoot the electronics, lighting, etc, which we really appreciated. We hope to return to Mt. Helix again sometime. Many thanks.
As former vacation home owners who offered our beach house (CA Central Coast) to guests for several years, we very much appreciate all the effort that has gone into making the Mt. Helix home comfortable yet sophisticated. The design and furnishings work well for a variety of age groups and their particular interests. The property was spacious and perfect for our group luncheon that celebrated our daughter's graduation from law school. We loved the recreational opportunities that there were at the house for our guests, which didn't require us leaving and driving to have fun. The swimming pool and pool toys, as well as the BBQ and pool table were enjoyed by all. It was great to have inside space options when, during the first 2 days of the trip, we had rain. There was enough space that the 7 house guests never felt like they were on top of each other. The gourmet kitchen with its 6 burner gas stove, wine cooler, etc really came in handy and was fun to cook in! A well appointed house all around, and we had a very restful wonderful vacation without even leaving the house much! Many wonderful memories were made there at the house and they will be cherished for years to come. Many thanks! Michelle C and Jeff R, Cambria CA

This home is an adorable, old fashioned, comfy home that we fell in love with immediately. The style and decoration takes you back in time, we loved it! The beds are so comfortable. The kitchen is fully functional, with a great BBQ in the back. Everything you could possibly want, bikes, wet suites and so on are in the garage. The house and yard itself does not get a whole lot of sunshine even when the sun is shining, which keeps it cold most of the time, (perhaps because of the big ivy wall in back)but the beach is literally steps away. Great location to everything you want or need in Pacific Beach. Oh did I mention the lemon trees in the yard, how wonderful for the folks from northern climates. Thank you. We will call again.

My family loved this house and Ocean Beach. We brought my 23 year old Son with us so the split level house layout was perfect. I also had to monitor my work email and do a few things so being able to set up at the little desk in the laundry area was perfect. Having a view of the ocean from the kitchen was wonderful and my Husband especially loved sitting out on the balcony every morning with his coffee and several sunsets over the ocean. We walked a lot, just like the locals do, to go to dinner, get a cup of coffee or just take a walk in the neighborhood. Totally relaxed at this home and area of San Diego.
