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!)
