We had the good fortune of connecting with Michaela Pangilinan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michaela, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
The events community is not about competition, but rather a community of people and artists that help one another bring a vision to life.

What should our readers know about your business?
Paradise Shack Rentals is a small party rental shop that specializes in boho and vintage rentals. Our team consists of (2) people, which are me and my business partner, Jaron Fackler. Besides rentals, we offer other services such as event planning, styling, picnics, and balloon decor. We serve surrounding cities in San Diego County and are open to other cities outside of San Diego. Our dream and goal is to create a permanent home for Paradise Shack where guests can come and shop items and rentals for events while providing a studio space for photographers, vendors, or other businesses to host workshops and classes. But most importantly, we are here to create memorable, fun, and lifetime memories for every occasion!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have lived in San Diego for 21 years now and it seems like there are still so many places I have yet to visit and explore. Whenever we have guests in town, I always recommend strolling through one of our favorite beaches – La Jolla Cove. You get a beautiful view of sea life and sometimes gnarly waves! In addition, Seaport Village is a fun spot for souvenirs, Balboa Park for picture taking, or Mt. Soledad for killer views! And for delicious food, Phil’s BBQ or authentic Mexican food in Old Town is a must-try!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
This special shout-out goes to my other half and business partner, Jaron Fackler. He is the backbone of Paradise Shack Rentals. Jaron is usually behind the scenes building furniture, signing paperwork, loading the truck, helping with set-ups, and constantly cheering me on. Without his hard work and dedication, Paradise Shack Rentals would not be where we are today. So, from the bottom of my heart – I would like to thank Jaron for supporting all of my crazy ideas and being a part of my dream!
