A 5* vacation!
A 5* vacation!
Our 6th VRBO rental and 2nd in the Castle Creek community, this was a 5* stay overlooking the 10th fairway. Kristi couldn’t have been more accommodating. Approachable right from the start, she quickly answered any questions that came up during our stay. Showing us around on arrival, she offered us the use of anything we saw - there were no locked cabinets here. Her home was especially clean, very comfortable, and included a large washer and dryer, cosy wood burning fireplace, and large 2 car garage. Another couple visited us during our stay, and not only was there lots of room to entertain them, but space for everyone to escape for a quiet time as well. The small community itself is very friendly and safe to walk, day or night. On the premises, there is a pool, with the golf course, its clubhouse restaurant, and tennis courts just up the road. A handy corner store, and a great deli for lunch are just a few minutes’ drive away. Quick highway access puts the many other golf courses and wonderful wineries in the surrounding area right at our doorstep, a big draw for us. The Welk theatre is just down the road, as well as mall and outlet shopping, major San Diego attractions, and of course, not to forget - the coast, all just a half hour to an hour away. While we could see the highway from the back yard of the condo, at night, it quieted right down. We enjoyed barbequing and enjoying drinks on the patio during an unseasonably warm Southern California winter. If there is a downside at all, it’s that the master bathroom has a beautiful Jacuzzi tub but not a dedicated shower. Tip: catch those lemons that fall off the trees in the front walkway – they make the BEST LEMON MERINGUE PIE!

Owner response: Thanks for that glowing review Herb & Jean. I really enjoy having some else appreciate my home as much as I do. I am working on getting a shower in the master bedroom sometime this summer. Please come back real soon!! Kristi
A great golf villa!
A great golf villa!
We rented this home for a month over the Christmas holiday, and it worked out perfectly for us. Although it was just my husband and me, we were there to be with our kids and grandkids, so we had company coming and gong the whole month. The villa is spacious and well-lit. The view of the golf course behind makes it seems so much larger, because the outside patio becomes part of your living space. The kitchen is well equipped, and the beds are very comfortable. If you don't feel like cooking, the Golf Club restaurant is only a short walk away! Kristi met us at the property when we moved in, and she was readily available if we had any questions or needed anything. We recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet place to stay, with golf all around.

Loved our stay!
Loved our stay!
We were very impressed with the service level of the owner - 5-stars! The owner has everything you might need stocked in the nicely furnished home. The home is large with high ceilings making it feel even larger. We didn't think we needed 3 -bedrooms, but they were useful for storage and a few family guests who visited during our stay. The patio and grill made for some fun out door meals and great sunset viewing. We highly recommend the place - We would stay here again.

Just what you would want in your own home!

No surprises here-the property, the furnishings and the location surpassed both the website description and our own expectations! The home is very spacious and there is good separation of the master and guest bedrooms. The kitchen was so well equipped that we found cooking to be just like at home. We appreciated having TVs in each bedroom as well as good WiFi even out on the patio. The location is great-it is just a short drive to downtown San Diego or the ocean. Lots of beautiful scenery. There are plenty of good golf courses in the immediate area. This property is more suitable for adults, great for two couples. Would recommend that each couple have a car though. While lots of activities in area, there isn't much to do within walking distance. We definitely would recommend this property, and in fact have already rebooked for next year ourselves!

Owner response: Thanks for your kind words Randy, can't wait to see you again next year. This time, it's dinner out for us all !
We were at this home for 30 days, giving us the opportunity to see and enjoy the tranquil settings of this home and the area. Everything one will need, except for personal items, is included. We would definitely rent this again.

Owner response: This delightful couple came just before Christmas, had access to decorations and a Christmas tree and celebrated the holidays far from home. M/M Cummings . . . you are welcome in my home any time!
Staying at this unit was just like staying at home; everything was provided and the items were very easy to find. The unit was very quiet and peacefull; weather was great. We would definietly recommend this unit to our friends and family.

Owner response: Thanks so much for the nice review, you two were a pleasure to have in my home. You, and your friends & family are always welcome here . . . my very best wishes for you both in your new home! ~ Kristi
My 97 year old mother and I spent 6 weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the golf course from the living room. We had a lot of friends and family come to visit with my mother and it worked out very well. The owner was very helpful, the beds were very comfortable, everything was impeccably clean, lots of TVs with cable, a land line phone was available, filtered water spigot at the sink, jacuzzi tub in the master, a nice garage to park the car, and any supplies you might need. We had the blackout while we were there, and there were lots of flashlights and candles in the closet and the gas barbeque outside, so we were able to get by with little problem. I would say the only downside I can think of is that there is no walk in shower at this property. If that isn't a problem for you, then I would definitely recommend this townhome...I would stay here again if I have the chance. It was wonderful.

Owner response: Thanks for your great review, and thanks for taking the time to write it. I have been contemplating re-doing the shower in the master to make a large walk-in shower. However, right now the cost is prohibitive to do a proper job. Watch for new photos in the next year or so, perhaps I will have a new shower yet! Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.
great place to stay!
great place to stay!
My son, Sheridan,who is in a wheelchair, paralyzed from an auto accident, and I stayed at the house for several months. The place is super clean, the neighborhood is fantastic w/ friendly neighbors. Kristi checks in on us often to make certain that everything is working and is a great help. We commuted to Carlsbad and never had a problem. the pool is nice, there are great places to walk and it's very convenient for shopping nearby. All in all, a great retreat!

We loved your condo, good size, well equipped and full of sunlight! Enjoyed sitting on the patio, reading, relaxing, and watching the golfers . . . and we played golf almost every week, had a great time. We'll be back again next year.

About the owner: I am looking for vacation renters, 30 days minimum, and prefer summer or winter visitors. Home is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, glasses, silverware, pots & pans, linens, towels, washer & dryer, your home away from home, all for your enjoyment. After 23 years working around the county, I knew I wanted to own a home in Castle Creek. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Escondido:
I chose this location because of the country feel, mountains all around, the golf course for my back yard and EZ access to all of San Diego and Riverside attractions. I can get to the beach in 20 minutes, ski in the mountains in 1 1/2 hours, the desert in 1 1/2 hours, balloon rides in 30 minutes, wine tasting in famous Temecula in 30 minutes, and downtown San Diego for the night life in 50 minutes. Who could ask for anything more????
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The best thing about Castle Creek is the peace & quiet! It's country location is perfect for relaxation, sitting on the patio watching the golfers . . good and bad, watching the rabbits in the late afternoon, and the yard faces west, so the sunsets can be excruciatingly beautiful.
