We are located 20 minutes east of Del Mar, CA, known for its, horse racing and restaurants and just 5 minutes, drive south and visit the scenic La Jolla where UCSD is located and Scripps Institute.

Easy access to Hwy. 15 which has a carpool lane for three passangers makes for a 25- 30 minute drive to the San Diego airport. There are also wineries near by and the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park is just north/east with a quick on and off the freeway one exit north, about a 15 minutes drive. The wild animal park is a must see and is open at night with a train-ride to view the animals. A favorite. We have a pink binder with all the activites, brochures, business cards for restaurants, take a peek at it the day you arrive.

My family has vacationed and lived in the San Diego area for more then four decades. We have fond memories and love the location for it is easy access to see the sights or just relax within the gates. Rancho Bernardo, California, has many golf courses, hiking trails, shopping and is easy access for what San Diego offers. 'Casa de Kimmie' is a very nice two story home with all the comforts of home.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Perfect for a Romantic Get-away or vacation. The property is located inland (no gloom from fog) and convenient to all attractions. The property has an amazing recreation center which makes for a great place to hang out with the family. If you have done the tourist things in San Diego before the property offers a great get-away with plenty of restaurants or cook in. During business hours visit the recreation center with a copy of your rental agreement and drivers license and pick up the recreation pass. The number one rated spa in the USA is The Golden Door which is 10 minutes away and wonderful golf courses surrounds this area. Wine country north in Temecula and in Rancho Bernardo. Great restaurants and shopping. Legoland is 20 minutes away, beaches are 20 minutes due west and the Wild Animal Park is 15 minutes away. Warm days and cool nights during the summer months for active guests there are walking, running and bike trails, tennis, and horse back-riding. Like new home with new carpet.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: The photo is of the flower fields in Carlsbad, our dad loves golf. While most of the family golf's, the ladies are artistic and love to walk, cook and bake. We enjoy the movies and MetOpera in HD at the local movie theater, walking the beaches in Del Mar and La Jolla, playing golf 12 minutes a way at the Vineyard is our favorite. The weather in San Diego is wonderful year-round but enjoy being inland to avoid the fog and dampness of the coast.

                  Why the Owner Chose Other San Diego Properties:
                  The property is like new, new carpet, great kitchen, patio with a great location, convenient to north county San Diego and Orange county/Anaheim is 1 plus hour away. This is our fourth year with many returning guests. The property is family owned made possible by our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, Kimmie.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home has wonderful views to the north and numerous activites at the recreation center located within the HOA property. The location of our home is ideal for early golf and walks, as the fog burns off much quicker inland and we find it to be less damp, and warmer temperatures. The home is beautifully furnished and well stocked.
