Our family of 12 including 8 adults, 2 teenagers, and a 7 & 1 year old stayed in this "resort" for a week in August. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together or have their own space if they desired. As others have said no pictures could show how amazing this house really is. It is very large, very beautifully decorated, very comfortable and a true resort oasis. We did take the grandkids to Moonlight Beach, Legoland and SeaWorld but most of the time everyone just wanted to enjoy the pool and backyard. We spent most of the days and evenings in the backyard. It is very secluded and tropical and amazingly large. The only negative I could say is that the house was too comfortable and enjoyable so we never went out to dinner or did much sightseeing!!!

Our own private resort
Accommodations were amazing! Our group of 10 adults very much enjoyed our own “resort” that we retreated to after long days of sightseeing. Some of the guys golfed at Torrey Pines (and the rest had breakfast there), Seaport Village in San Diego, Old Towne, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla, Coronado Beach (some of the group rented jet skis), Gas Lamp District, Orfila winery (A+ for welcoming staff and great wine), Temecula, Hollywood/Beverly Hills, and Escondidos on Friday nights (Cruise Night). A big plus (before and after our arrival) was that the owner was very receptive to open communication, via email, text or phone calls). Would definitely recommend.

We are a group of 5 families with children and stayed at Jay's house for an one week vacation. The over-all experience with the house are outstanding and exceeded my expectations on every level. First of all, like some of the other reviews mentioned, these picutures do not do justice to this house. The rooms and the back yard and the pool and everything about the house are bigger and nicer in person. I'd advice Jay to get a better photographer and take some new pictures. Pros: * the outdoor speakers are awesome for playing music while spending time by the pool. * very nice kitchen appliances. * awesome outdoor grille * the number of bathrooms is definitely a plus * location is very convenient. lots of local restaurants, close to I5 for going places, close the costco for getting the USDA prime steaks, etc. * the owner, Jay, is very easy to work with and very responsive. Cons: * the whole pool heating system is too complex for mere mortals to comprehend. we were not able to get it right the whole week, even though the group has like 5 phd's. we did swim every day, though. * the kitchen, as usual with vacation houses, does not come with a good chef's knife. (but i was smart, i brought my own, so it was ok) * for whatever reason, the formal dining room is easily forgotten and we never used it. lol. * house didn't come with coffee filters. I am sure this is an over-sight that jay will fix.

Owner response: I'm glad you had a wonderful stay at the home. Our goal is to exceed expectations and I'm proud that we were able to do so. Thanks for the suggestions/comments. We love hearing of ways we can improve our experience for guests! P.S. The coffee maker is one which has a built in reusable screen and does not use (paper) coffee filters -- sorry that wasn't made more clear.

2012 - Christmas Holiday’s
J and T – Hi! Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy our Christmas Holiday’s in your spectacular home. From the first moment we entered though the front door – we were truly impressed! The online photo’s truly do not capture the warmth and elegant décor throughout. The kitchen with oversize isle was open to the family room and fully stocked with everything that we needed – high end appliances, dishware, stemware, flatware, cookware, etc. Yep it was all there to enjoy! We enjoyed the large cozy family room with fireplace – due to the cooler weather it was perfect. It was definitely a plus to have the fabulous views of the pool, waterfall, spa, BQQ and patio area, golf course (our grandson 21 months – attached photo enjoying every second). The game room was used frequently – pool table went over real big with the guys, and the additional games such as Jenga – were so fun and challenging. The formal dinning table was prefect for our Christmas eve and Christmas day dinners – plenty of room for the 8 aduts and 1 toddler - so relaxing and enjoyable. We used the kitchen table for other breakfasts and dinners – that acommodated 8 perfectly. The BQQ was used 4 evenings out of 7 – one evening we cooked 12 steaks and veggies – and still had room. The backyard is unbelieveable – landscaped to perfection – your own oasis! All the bedrooms were tastefully decorated – 2 of the bedrooms were not used – but available if needed. The “Master Bedroom Suite” was outstanding with views of the pool, spa, and backyard – it was our get away! Thank you again.

Beautiful Home and wonderful vacation!

We had the pleasure of working with Jay and staying in his home for a full month. We could not have had an easier or more enjoyable experience. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated (the pictures do not do it justice) and the backyard is an oasis. Our family spent the majority of our trip enjoying the yard: from having our morning coffee on the outdoor sofa, to playing in the pool and enjoying the outdoor dining area. They have put a lot of thought into making their personal home become very renter friendly and everything you could need has been provided for you. The house is very convenient to everything and we really felt at home during our month stay. I can not say thank you enough to Jay and his family for giving us such a wonderful vacation experience!

Our family stayed at this incredible home in August while attending a family wedding. The pictures don't even begin to do this place justice as it far exceeded our expectations. It is so spacious and every room in the house is beautifully appointed, with much care. The en suite bathroom in the master bedroom is especially nice. Despite how lovely it is, our family felt very relaxed and at home here. The kitchen is well equipped with some great extra features. We especially enjoyed the patio in back with the gorgeous stone pool and spa equipped with lights and a waterfall. I really liked the color coded shallow area of the pool for my grandchildren. There is lots of furniture around to relax in the tranquil atmosphere and there are just too many details to count. The location is perfect for hopping on the Interstate to quickly get to any location and we really didn't notice the highway noise from the patio most of the time. The owner, Jay was extremely helpful and accomodating, with great communication from the beginning. I have used vrbo many times with really good experiences and this certainly was one of the best. Thank you Jay

We have stayed at this lovely home and enjoyed the serenity and beauty of every room and expecially the back yard area. Basking in the sun at the pool and nearby beach was Heaven! Thank you for providing a home that truly envelops the Southern California lifestyle.
