We love it here, you will too!

Welcome to the Harbor View Vila. Mi casa es su casa!

Our Story


We are a young married couple living the dream in America’s finest city. Raphaël works as a software engineer and Renée is a pediatric nurse. Raphaël was born in France and loves connecting with guests from Europe, while Renée is a California girl through and through.

In our spare time, we enjoy traveling (we’ve been to more than 20 countries and can’t wait to explore more!), eating out, and spending time with our family. We love board games and all things dessert. We are quiet, respectful people devoted to living out our purpose within the bigger picture.

We are looking forward to connecting with you wherever that may be!

    Great property and hosts Beautiful property with very nice amenities as advertised. The location is incredible, just minutes to everything San Diego has to offer. Renee and Raphael went out of their way to correct a couple of minor issues. Highly recommend!

    Amazing views of San Diego and the harbor! Loved the large deck and hot tub. Close to everything and easy to get around. Much better than a hotel room! Raphael and Renee are great hosts!

  • Excellent communication. Great hosts. Clean house that had easy access. Great extra amenities! Had a massage chair, something I never knew I needed but I do! Very nice extra touch.
