SeaBreeze Vacation Rentals has been very easy to deal with and has done a very good job overseeing our La Jolla property. We live out of state so it is imperative that we have a company we can trust to do careful screening of potential renters as well as an indepth walk through orientation for the new renters. We have a semiautomated home with some complicated features and Tim at SeaBreeze seems to be very competent at getting renters situated and informed.
SeaBreeze also seems to respond promptly if there are any issues that arise and is able to coordinate any repairs or fixes as needed. It is nice to be able to personal contact with Jonah and his team, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for overseeing your residence in their rental inventory.
I have absolutely nothing but positive feedback regarding Seabreeze Vacation Rentals.
Years ago, when I first considered renting my home out for short term rentals, I met with the three top La Jolla companies who managed and rented properties. Seabreeze at that time, and I feel sure today, has the best program, the best service to both homeowners and tenants, and a wonderful, personable demeanor at all times.
Jonah Mechanic is a warm, fair, supremely honest and accommodating man who runs his company the same. The professionalism that Seabreeze embodies, in every aspect of their business and personal associations with their clients, should be replicated in every business and many more people would find satisfaction and trust. Jonah has integrity and believes in treating every one of his clients as special as the next.
I found over the years we rented with him that the needs of the tenants were met in a timely manner, but he also was cognizant of the homeowner's needs and budgetary limitations. All of this is to say that I would tell any homeowner looking for a vacation rental management company to sign on with Seabreeze without question or worry. You will be in great hands and any and all of your specific requests will be treated fairly and completely.
I have two rental properties and been a client of Seabreeze Vacation Rentals for the past three years. I am extremely happy with all their services, they handle everything. Prior to using Jonah and his company, I had used other rental agencies. When those agencies either failed to fill my rentals or did not properly manage the properties, I attempted to manage my own properties. That turned out to be an very stressful and unsuccessful endeavor.
Out of frustration I turned to a local real estate office in La Jolla. The agent referred me to Jonah "the rental guru" (his words not mine) and assured me I would be satisfied. Not only has Seabreeze Vacation rentals increased the income on my properties, the properties are still in fantastic condition.
To Whom It May Concern: Just over three years ago, my husband and I bought a townhome in La Jolla. Initially, making it an income-generating property was nowhere on our radar. Given its ideal location and proximity to Windansea Beach, our realtor suggested that we might want rent it out since, at this stage in our lives, we are not able to be there as much as we would like. Our realtor introduced us to Jonah and the rest, as they say, is history.
SeaBreeze Vacation Rentals is a well-run business and Jonah (with whom we deal regarding marketing and financial issues) and Tim (the day to day operations manager) are an absolute delight. They are both extremely smart, responsive, honest and personable. They consult us regarding owner-worthy expenses and issues, but take complete care of the minutiae of owning a vacation rental. We receive checks and detailed statements in a timely fashion. Our La Jolla property has turned out to be such a lucrative investment that we purchased another condominium in Pacific Beach. SeaBreeze manages that property as well. We travel to San Diego regularly enough to see that the properties are kept up beautifully! Even though the occupancy rate is high, both properties look as good as when we first turned them over to SeaBreeze.
I will conclude by saying that we never anticipated owning vacation rentals. We were simply looking for a way back to the beautiful city in which we lived 25 years ago. The success of these properties, in large part due to SeaBreeze's management, has been a very pleasant surprise to us as they occupy an important place in our investment portfolio.
My husband and I have no hesitation to recommend SeaBreeze Vacation Rentals.
We were first introduced to Jonah Mechanic by a respected La Jolla realtor, who suggested that we consult with Jonah before starting the design and remodeling process of our newly purchased home in the Windansea community. Jonah looked over our plans and gave us some very solid suggestions which he believed would make our home more marketable as a vacation rental.
We were very impressed with Jonah's professionalism, knowledge, and experience about the vacation rental market, and we quickly gained full confidence in his judgment and financial acumen.
We followed Jonah's advice to the "T" and even ended up hiring the contractor he recommended. (After a terrific experience with the contractor, we proceeded to hire all of Jonah's referrals for gardening, pool maintenance, interior design, photography etc.) Within days after finishing our remodel in May 2014 and posting photos on the website, we were very gratified to see saw our home getting quickly booked up.
We have had excellent service from all of the SeaBreeze employees, who are very responsive to all of our ongoing questions and concerns. Jonah is always available to answer a multitude of questions which makes us more comfortable, especially as this is our first foray into the vacation rental business.
We are especially reliant on Jonah and his team at SeaBreeze to screen potential guests and to make sure that all goes smoothly at our property, because we live in Los Angeles and do not have the ability to drop in at a moment's notice in case a problem arises.
We have been very satisfied with SeaBreeze, as we entrust our valuable investment to to their management and care. I am happy to answer any questions should you care to contact me.
