Meet the Bluewater Vacation Homes Team

Paul Becker

Where I'm From | San Diego, California

About me | I spent many childhood summers staying in vacation rentals along the beaches of San Diego and some of my best memories are of fun times with friends and family. Since then, I spent many years gaining experience in businesses that added to my experience and gave me a strong foundation to create Bluewater Vacation Homes. My background has enabled me to build an exceptional team of dedicated individuals focused on hospitality and customer service. The underlying founding concept of Bluewater was and is driven by intentionally not being a "Me-Too" vacation rental business, but instead being the "Go-To" vacation rental agency for both the owners of quality vacation homes and for the guests that expect more than what the typical agency provides.

How I contribute to the Bluewater experience | My role in the company is to keep the focus on our responsibility to provide clean, comfortable and well-appointed homes where our guests can relax, recharge and create their own lifelong vacation memories. When we do that well, we serve our homeowners' best interests at the same time.

Why I love San Diego | What's not to love? Of course you can’t beat the weather, but the options for adventure are endless: Spectacular Coastlines, Amusement Parks, Beaches, Bays, Breweries, Hiking, Museums, Parks, Sailing, Fishing, Surfing, Horse Racing, Padre Games, etc. It's all here!

About me | I'm a lover of food, family' friends, and San Diego. Being from Northern California, I'm also a big SF Giants fan.

Why I love San Diego | It's a big city with a small town feel. The food, the beach, the people and the weather can’t be beat. Also catching a baseball game is much cheaper at Petco than at ATT park.
