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!)

We just returned from spending a week at Casa de Allegra. WOW, what can I say. The outside of this property is as beautiful as the inside. We had perfect weather to enjoy the outside. The pool and hot tub were a big hit. There were 10 of us and the house was big enough that you didn't feel crowded. The location is perfect, a short walk to the super Walmart, a mile from the beach, and 30 minutes to SeaWorld and the zoo. The outside BBQ was my favorite and we spent every night cooking and visiting outside. As with this time of year, as it cooled down at night, the outdoor gas fireplace was a very warm spot for all to congregrate. Overall a great property and we would definitely consider another stay the next time we are in the area!!!

Great for families

3 generations enjoyed a very comfortable week. There was space for everyone. The kids loved the pool and playground. The kitchen was well stocked for a family that cooks. The beach equipment was very much appreciated. The outdoor fireplace was the favorite gathering place. Highly recommend this property.

JULY SPLASH AT CDA!
JULY SPLASH AT CDA!
Grandma and Grandpa gathered with their two daughters and their families for a wonderful week at Casa de Allegra. Ala the so-called Mac Mansion, the house was spacious and met everyone's needs. The many family photos and art works throughout the house make it seem less like a house and more like a home. But, of course, the backyard is what makes Case de Allegra the great place it is. The pool, spa, bar/grill area and dining table were used to the max, while the trampoline, jungle gym and swings received little attention from our group. Access to Highway 15 for trips north towards Disneyland and south towards Legoland and the San Diego attractions was very convenient. The coastal highway was just a mile west of the Highway 15 ramp. I highly recommend Casa de Allegra for gatherings of ten or less people. Finally, I must compliment the owner/manager of CDA. She is a true professional as a business person who says what she means and means what she says.

My family of ten had so much fun at Casa de Allegra last year that we decided to return again this year. Everything was as we remembered. The kids were a year older this year and had even more fun in the pool. It's hardly necessary to leave the house in order to have a first-rate vacation! There were a few problems with the heating of the pool and spa this year, but Carrie and Brad were very responsive and saw to it that the problems were fixed quickly, so no one was inconvenienced. (In fact, the kids loved chatting with Jason the pool guy, who was very patient and answered all the kids' questions.) We all loved our two stays at Casa de Allegra and would recommend it without qualification.

Great family home
Great family home
Our extended family of 10 (2 grandparents, 4 parents, 4 little kids) stayed here over the Christmas week. The house was wonderful for a family group such as ours. The kids had a great time on all the outdoor play equipment and in the indoor playroom. No need to bring any toys, or baby equipment; this house has it all. (Cribs, strollers, high chairs). The backyard was so beautiful; we took some great family photos and people said it looked like we were in Hawaii. Loved the convenience of being able to walk to the shopping center for groceries. House was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!!!

Ten of us stayed for one week at Casa de Allegra. It was just wonderful. Everything you could think of was right there. We only left the house three times because it was so nice right there with the pool and the kids enjoyed the playhouse, play yard, playroom and trampoline. We all want to do it again. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

We've been renting houses all over the northwest and Hawaii for the past 6 years for our summer family vacation. Casa de Allegra was hands down our best experience. Although we visited Legoland, the beach, and the Safari Park, all of which were close at hand, we had the most fun just hanging around the house. The pool and spa are fabulous, and the kids (ranging in age from 7 years to 22 months) had great fun on the swings, slides, and trampoline. The putting green was fun for all ages, too. Inside, the Princess Room, the Pirate Room, and the playroom under the staircase captivated the kids. The adults were very pleased with the kitchen, which is well-stocked with appliances and dishes. I was especially happy to find two coffee makers. Half of our group drinks regular coffee, and the other half drinks de-caf. It was nice to be able to make two pots at the same time. We were also very pleased with the abundant supply of towels, both house towels and beach towels. We had to make several trips to the store to pick up food items and were happy to note that several supermarkets were nearby, as well as specialty stores of every description. I could go on and on. Suffice it to say--Casa de Allegra is a vacation paradise!

Although at first we were not sure if the cost of this rental place would be worth the amount - it ended up being the perfect place for us. We had 4 adults and 4 kids (between the ages of 10 months - 4 yrs) and we enjoyed every moment. The play room was an amazing hidden gem and we had PLENTY of space. We did not end up meeting the owners (Brad and Carrie) due to a very busy week for them but when we had problems with the spa, they took care of them immediately. We found the location was perfect for shopping, Disney, Wild animal park and the beach and we all had very restful sleeps. We had the pool heated, but due to cooler weather and younger kids, we did not end up using it all that much. We did however use the hot tub (spa) every night and since we could regulate the temperature, we cooled it down enough for our kids to use it as a warm pool. Since we had small kids, we were also pleasantly surprised at all the amenities Carrie had for us, like high chairs, strollers, baby gates, bed rails, baby swings etc. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a great place to be with their kids.

Everything thought of!
Everything thought of!
This house was everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. The owners thought of everything...it was as if they set it up as their own home with everything they may have needed or wanted and then just gave you the key...Having the pool and playground was perfect for the kids...and the five minute walk to the store or mile drive to a lovely beach was perfect...There was plenty of room for our 3 families and we appreciated the owners going above and beyond what most rentals offer. I would love to stay here again...too bad it wasn't a bit cheaper....but if you have the $, so worth it... Thanks for a great vaction. Stephanie, Wa.

Our 4-year-old grandson requested a vacation with sand. So that's when I began looking for a house near the beach in southern California. Casa de Allegra looked to be the best - and it was!! We had wonderful timel. The home is beautiful, the yard is heavenly - a true oasis. There were eight of us - two sets of grandparents, mom and dad and two young boys. The boys loved the fort and the trampoline. The pool was a hit one afternoon - unfortunately it was just too cool to swim much while we were there. The house has lots of windows from the kitchen/family room area so we all enjoyed the beautiful backyard view while cooking/eating inside. Every evening after dark, we turned on the outdoor fireplace, sat around the fire and heated up chocolate chip cookies over the flame and added a dip of ice cream and talked about our day and all the fun we had. We STRONGLY recommend Casa de Allegra. Clean, beautiful home with accommodating landlords. BTW, it's only a few minutes from Legoland which is perfect for young children. We also enjoyed the nearby beach with all that sand more than once! Thanks Carrie and Brad for sharing your home - even more beautiful than the photographs.
