About Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck
We're both born and raised in California and have lived in Northern CA and Southern CA, including West Hollywood, Long Beach, Orange County, Palm Springs, and of course, San Diego. We are Realtors, so if you're interested in buying or selling in San Diego, Los Angeles, or the Palm Springs area, we can help you. In addition to Real Estate, Patrick also works in the entertainment industry in Hollywood. Taking care of our vacation home certainly keeps us busy, but when we can, we love to travel. One of our favorite places to visit is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We own a timeshare right on the beach, amazing, and we rent that out too! You'll see some pics of the area on our walls in the dining room. We love this home and we're very fortunate and grateful we have the ability to share it with you. We're hardworking guys and we do all we can to make sure you, our guests, get to experience the San Diego area we call home.
Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck purchased this House in 1998
Why Patrick McHale and Will Scherneck chose Fairmount Park
This home is in one of the best locations in San Diego. There's nothing else like it. There's just something about the natural canyon setting, the towering Eucalyptus, giant Italian Cypress, and Palm Trees...a true oasis. We're so close to everything, but we feel like we're in our own private park. There's nothing like being within minutes to so much. We also have another home located in San Diego, just south of this home. It's also listed on VRBO, and called the Panoramic Ocean View House #907583.
What makes this House unique
Prime Location. We love the natural, canyon setting and privacy. Instant relaxation and natural aromatherapy from the Eucalyptus trees and microclimate. Relax on one of the patios, BBQ, lounges for sun and also perfect for stargazing. Such a natural and private setting yet so close to most of San Diego's main attractions.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Beautiful! Amazing! Absolutely STUNNING.!
My Husband & I Only Met Will When We Checked In And He Was SUPER Nice & Funny! The Property Was ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.! Very Spacious & Cozy!! I Have Lived In SD County For The Past 8 Years & Haven’t Had The Chance To Explore SD So My Daughter Surprised Me With A Weekend Getaway For My Birthday With Some Friends. The House Wasn’t Amazing And I Would 110% Rent Again Hands Down.! Will Mentioned That They Also Have Other Properties So We Are Definitely Looking Into Renting From Them Again Possibly For Our Daughters Birthday.! If You Are Visiting From Out Of Town (State Or City Wise) I RECCOMEND THIS PROPERTY 110%! You Will Love It! Will & Patrick Do Live Here For When They Are Not Renting Out The House So There Is SO MUCH Provided Which Is AMAZING!! Definitely Would Give Them 10 Out 5!! Thank You So Much Will & Patrick!!
Very nice house. Lots of extras like shampoo, spices, etc. Hilly neighborhood.
Thank you, Sara, for choosing our home for your visit to San Diego! We're glad your family enjoyed the little extras we provide for our guests and we certainly appreciate your 5 Star review. Thank you again. We hope you'll stay with us again.

Felt at home. Had everything we needed.
Yard was beautiful, house neat and well kept.
Beautifully decorated and well maintained house inside-out
Me and my family enjoyed our stay at this property. It was our first trip to San Diego as a family, so, a peaceful location and some backyard fun (3 children) was much desired. I had always stayed in hotels in SD at my prior trips/conferences but this trip was certainly a game changer as it was 6 of us this time. I do not think I will ever stay in a hotel again while visiting SD after staying in this house. This house has the charm of a cute bungalow we have back in my country of origin as well as an awesome backyard that almost gives you the feeling of a tropical island (at least to our family). We met Will on our arrival to the house and he was very welcoming. He went above and beyond to give us a quick tour of the house and even showed us board games that our kids could play with. I think he knew we were coming with kids, so, he set up a cute little tent house for kids in the backyard. That was the best thing I have ever seen any home owner doing for a visiting/renting family. It was extremely welcoming gesture indeed as my kids are everything to me. They enjoyed the backyard thoroughly and slept well every night with fresh air this Jungle house has to offer. Owners are very detail oriented and organized as we could tell from how the entire house is kept and decorated. My son and daughter loved the little monkey, glowing and color changing night lights and of course “Alexa”. We have Amazon Echo at home, so, it was a homely feeling away from home for kids to tell Alexa what they wanted to listen to. I can write a book on this house while sitting in the backyard, its that serene!! Owners didn’t interfere with our stay at all like I have heard about some other home/house rentals in SD. This house has everything you need for your stay, inside-out. Kitchen is packed with stuff, pantry is full of items you might need. We didn’t use a whole lot as we were eating out mostly but this house has everything!! It is located in a quite and safe neighborhood and within 10 minutes of everything important in SD. I will highly recommend this property to anyone and everyone looking for a comfortable stay in SD. We will definitely be staying here again at our next trip, and yes, will stay longer Will!! Thanks for your hospitality!
Thank you so much for this wonderful, detailed review! You get 5 Stars from us too, wow, really thankful for you mentioning so many of the little things we do to make our house extra special for our guests. You and your family are welcome back anytime!

Great option for a San Diego vacation!
I was in San Diego for a boys weekend. We had a party of four and did not know what to expect when booking this property. Upon arrival we were greeting by the property owner who took the time to give us a tour of the property and to answer our questions. This house is amazing! 4 bedrooms, clean, quiet neighborhood and tons of outdoor space. There’s a fire pit, bbq grill, lawn chairs in the back yard and at night the palm trees light up, adding to the ambiance. If you are ever in the San Diego area with a big party and want to see what it is like to live in one of the best cities in the US, do yourself a favor and give the Jungle House a look. Thank you for adding to my great weekend.
What a great review, thanks, Emmanuel! 5 Stars too, yes! Our North Park area has so much to offer, so we're glad you chose our home for your stay. Special thanks for mentioning the yard lighting and other amenities! You're welcome back any time. Sincerely, Patrick and Will
This home is so amazingly close to all of San Diego's main attractions, yet you'll feel like you're in your own personal park when you return home from sightseeing. North Park is a trendy little area known for it's Brew pubs, restaurants, and art. North Park borders beautiful Balboa Park and the world Famous San Diego Zoo! Close proximity to it all. We love our Jungle house and know you will too! Feel free to ask us any questions about the house and the area.
