About the owner:
Hi ! We're Steve & Karron Hohe ( HOHE ). My wife, Karron and I are San Diego natives... Born and raised at the Beach. The Beach is in our blood, and an integral part of our lives. We have raised our children here, and are now blessed to have our three grandkids continue the beach lineage. I've been Surfing since I was nine, and Karron is a long distance runner who loves to be able to kick back at the waters edge with a good book. As the co founder of The Souplantation & Sweet Tomatoes Restaurants over 30 years ago, we have continued a passion for hospitality. As we have retired from the restaurant life, we have not lost that passion.
Why the Owner Chose Pacific Beach:
As a boy in High School, my folks moved from the beach to a few miles inland from the water. I was naturally upset, and did all I could to get back to the beach every chance I could. After College, I bought my first home near my parents, but always kept my sight on the beach...'Some Day' I'd say ! One home at a time I was able to first get back to the beach, and each time a little closer to the water. One day, 22 years ago, our current home came up for sale. I jumped at the opportunity, and will never move again. The one square block of homes in our beach neighborhood all have two homes on each lot. This presented the perfect opportunity to both live in one of my favorite places on earth, and be able to personally share it with others. Our Beach Home resides on the same property as our Hohe House & Guest Studio. We truly enjoy sharing our homes, neighborhood, Beach, and community with folks. We love it here, and try to set you up with everything you will need, from Bicycles & Boogie Boards, to Wireless Internet, so you can enjoy our town the way we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This neighborhood is close to all the unique places in San Diego that make it so special. A 10 - 15 minute drive to every attraction in town, or park the car and stroll or bike to all you need to be quite happy and refreshed... again, we provide the bikes. You have a nice ocean view from the Hohe House, and though you are close to all... you will be quietly removed from the hubs of fun activities, to always get a quiet nights sleep. You can listen to the waves breaking while you lie in bed, and appreciate the wonderful sea air. It's a 2-3 minute walk to have your toes in the sand. You will also have us as neighbors. Though we always respect your privacy ( sometimes we never see our guests at all ) we can always be available to help guide you to all the best spots to explore, shop, or dine.
