Private Homes house description

Casa de Allegra has been featured in the New York Times Travel Section's Great Escapes column. We are proud to share our private paradise -- Casa de Allegra -- with you! You won’t find another vacation rental in the area with more to offer than our spectacular resort-style oasis--Casa de Allegra! We’ve thought of everything to make this your best vacation ever in Southern California!

But who needs the beach when you have a backyard like this to hang out in? Custom putting green, gigantic grassy play area for kids with double tower play fort, swings and rock wall! Tropical pool with 10-foot Shamu shelf, waterfalls and hotel-sized Jacuzzi, and it's gated so your little ones will be safe! Chaise lounges and umbrellas for your sunbathing pleasure! Outdoor living room with huge gas fireplace, cable TV, comfortable sofa, chairs and luxurious dining table/area for 10+ guests overlooking pool make this an entertainer's delight! If that's not enough, enjoy cooking your meals in the outdoor kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line gas barbecue, two side burners, sink/wet bar, refrigerator and lots of prep space! Your family will never forget this vacation!

Our two-story house offers 3,000 square feet of living space with hardwood floors, maple cabinetry and an open floor plan perfect for any family. The home features five beautifully appointed bedrooms and three bathrooms. Each room has been decorated with a theme to make your trip a true adventure! On the second floor, the Pirate and Princess rooms offer two twin beds each, the Aloha Room has a full-size bed, and these rooms share a spacious bathroom with double sink and separate toilet and shower/tub. Also, on the second floor, the Master Suite has a luxurious cal-king bed, and adjoining bathroom with jacuzzi tub! The room with the queen bed is on the first floor with a bathroom close by.

We offer wireless internet connection and unlimited local and long distance calls within the US.

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING ANOTHER VRBO RENTAL LISTING - BE SURE TO CHECK THEIR REVIEWS AND NOTICE THAT MANY OF THEM ARE SUBMITTED ON THE SAME DAY. I QUESTION THEIR VALIDITY. ALSO NOTE THAT OTHER LARGER UNITS CLAIM TO BE BEACHFRONT BUT THEY ARE NOT ON THE BEACH AT ALL. DON'T BE FOOLED! I CAN PROMISE IF YOU BOOK WITH US - WE ARE HONEST ABOUT WHAT WE OFFER AND ALL OF OUR REVIEWS ARE 100% AUTHENTIC.

THIS IS NOT A SPECIAL EVENT VENUE - NO WEDDINGS, ANNIVERSARY PARTIES, REUNIONS, CORPORATE RETREATS, ETC.! THANK YOU!

                      Look at the beautifully landscaped backyard with pool and patio! 10/29/2007

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      I decided to take a trip to San Diego, and boy am I glad I did! Our accommodations in Oceanside were outstanding. When we first arrived, we were treated to a grand tour – upon entering through the wrought iron gate, we were soothed with the sounds of the three tiered cascading fountain. The home was a delight, with a princess bedroom, pirate bedroom, Hawaiian bedroom and a most romantic master retreat, each complete with flat screen TVs. I appreciated the bright, happy colors throughout the house – no bland, boring hotel-type décor or cramped space but so much more than we imagined!

                      Out back was a full BBQ, a large, cozy fireplace and plenty of chairs for lounging. The cubbies enjoyed the pool and waterfall while I took advantage of the relaxing hot tub. When the cubs weren’t in the pool, they were jumping on the trampoline or playing on the swing set. There was so much space to play, even a putting green.

                      The beach was a only a mile away, and Disneyland was just an hour. We decided to visit the park during the week when lines were short. But best of all was coming back to relax and enjoy this exceptional home where everything you need is provided, from beach towels, boogie boards and bikes to the most comfortable pillow top beds. Our host even provides a special treat for all her guests. (Thank you, Carrie, for anticipating everything this furry guest and his cubs could need!)
