The neighborhood is excellent for walking, with both flat areas and challenging hills and there are lovely trails to explore in Fallbrook.
An active dog walking group gathers on the golf course in the evenings. Your dogs will love making new friends! If you bring dogs, please register them for insurance purposes! Thank you.

A family wedding in San Diego brought us from Scotland to California for two weeks and we cast around for a suitable vacation rental. Boy, did we make a good choice! First impressions couldn't have been better. We arrived after dark and made our way to the front door through a leafy garden strung with fairy lights. The house was also lit up for our arrival (how thoughtful) and we found ourselves in the most enchanting cottage. This, however is a cottage on a US scale; a huge, open kitchen and living space matched by equally generous sleeping areas. The next morning revealed the full glory of the house-long patio deck with its view over the golf course and a wonderfully large pool and hot tub which, incidentally, are not overlooked. We had seen the photographs, of course, but for once the reality was even better. We met, Theresa, the owner shortly after our arrival. She was staying next door and came to welcome us and to make sure we were happy with everything. She's a charming, intelligent and very helpful and we spoke to her again just before we left. By this time we had established that, like Theresa, everyone we met in Fallbrook and elsewhere in California was very laid-back, very friendly. All in all we couldn't have asked for better.

Owner response: Thank you for the great review! Yes, through the end of November 2013, I took a room next door when in town. However, starting December 2013, when in town I'll be at a house just 5 minutes away -- so it's easy for me to pop over to help with the pool or anything you need. While I do travel frequently, I am always just a text or phone call away, 24/7, ensuring your vacation is relaxed and carefree!
We took our 2 daughters & their families on this vacation! The house is GREAT for a single or multiple family retreat. With bedrooms on both sides of the house and the guest house, each family was able to have their own space and the main gathering area was wonderful for the "Family" time! Beautiful sunsets, large pool with hot tub made for a relaxing vacation. One hour from the San Diego Zoo & Captain Dave's Dolphin & Whale Safari (I highly recommend the Safari) & 2 hours from the LA scene. We were able to take in all of it! It was great to spend time with the Grandkids (3 and 20 Months). Theresa was very helpful and addressed our questions very timely! I would not hesitate to come here again if we are ever taking another trip to the San Diego / LA area!

Owner response: So glad these guests had a great time in our home. We're located about half an hour from Legoland and San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Safari. Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and Belmont Park are about 45 minutes south and Disneyland is a little over an hour north. It's a great base for visiting many of SoCal's fabulous theme parks. Come and visit soon!
Teresa is a gracious host, his house is a place of calm and sunshine. The garden is amazing, ready to stand around a pool more enjoyable. What a pleasure to enjoy the terrace for every meal !

For the Perfect Family Gathering!
For the Perfect Family Gathering!
I organized our stay at Teresa's lovely home for my in-laws. Now that may sound overwhelming for some people *organizing a stay for your inlaws...but really it was the perfect house for it! With a pool for the younger kids to be entertained and a wonderfully open kitchen it gave the adults pleanty of space to prepare meals and be social all at once. With many different living areas/open spaces...there was room for everyone with out worrying about being crowded...for some people that is a must! For us it was! The guest house/pool house was perfect to have the younger kids there with their parents but still close enough to be together during the day and far enough for the kids to have quiet when it was bed time. Simple cooking amenities made life easy. Oil, seasonings etc. Everything was wonderful aside from the icemaker being finicky. That was a little inconvenient for evening cocktails. All and all we would do it again!

Owner response: This great review is from a very nice family who took good care of our home. We have addressed the finicky ice maker and all's now well, but since it interfered with cocktail hour, this guest is receiving $100 off their next visit. We hope they come back to Fallbrook and enjoy cocktails at sunset over the golf course again soon!
My family and I have just returned to the UK after spending two weeks at this fabulous vacation home in Fallbrook. The house is light, spacious and airy and wonderfully situated overlooking the golf course and we sat out on the deck most evenings watching the glorious sun sets. The magical fairy lights that lace the garden would then take over and we'd linger to listen to the owls and cicadas. The pool and grounds were beautifully maintained and our two sons aged ten and twelve had many happy hours frolicking in the water with the great supply of pool toys! The house itself is comfortably furnished and the stunning kitchen is very well stocked with equipment and staples. This is the first time I've stayed anywhere that actually is 'a home from home'. We really appreciated the many little extras -- tissues, cotton buds, shampoos, conditioner, hair-dryers. Also, I should mention that the house was immaculately clean. Fallbrook is ideally situated -- a 25-minute drive to the beach and surfing of Oceanside; 40 minutes to downtown San Diego; an hour and a half to Disneyland. Best trips included horse trekking and sightseeing in Julian; Coronado beach/town; Fashion Valley Mall, and Encinitas beach. The town itself is charming with good restaurants (especially Oink and Moo (best BBQ and burgers), La Caseta (great Mexican) and the Fallbrook Cafe (typical US diner for delicious breakfasts)) and plenty of shops. The owner, Teresa, was staying next door whilst we were in residence and couldn't have been more helpful (including when I was ill for the day), what a warm, caring person she is! We also met many of the neighbours who were wonderfully welcoming and even invited us to a polo match in the desert just outside Temecula, which my boys helped referee. We will be returning next year as we know we are guaranteed a great welcome and a superb holiday!

Owner response: So glad to hear you had a wonderful time at our house in Fallbrook. We enjoyed having your lovely family visit and look forward to your return in 2014!
We had the most amazing vacation at this property! Our plan was to go to sea world and legoland so we picked a central location. Both parks were 40 minutes away which in my book was awesome! The house fit our needs PERFECTLY! We had 3 couples and 4 kids between us and we had more than enough space for our crew to spread out. The kitchen is HUGE and perfect for big groups! We spent an entire day lounging by the pool and had so much fun! Teresa is a saint and was constantly in contact throughout the trip checking on us via text message. After we packed up our cars and were checking out our car wouldn't start so we were stranded for a while but Teresa came to start the clean up and was the warmest soul I have met in a long time! (She will even ship you your daughters favorite stuffed animal when it gets left behind! :) My 8 year old lazy mutt came along for the trip and turned into a puppy hunting for lizards and hanging out with us by the pool all day! I would recommend this property to anyone looking to relax near San Diego on an adorable, affordable, gorgeous, HUgE house! My group of friends is already trying to plan another trip down there!

Rented the home for 8 nights. Beautiful pool and spa!! Pictures are very accurate. The kitchen has everything you need with top of the line appliances. (Even an electric squeezer for the wonderful lemons just outside the door) The owner has a very informative letter regarding everything you need to know about the pool, where things are located in the house, and nearby places of interest. We were in town for a family wedding and found the single story home ideal for my 85 year old mother. Highly recommend this rental.

Owner response: Thank you for the recommendation and we're so glad your mother found the single-story house easy to navigate. It's something we really like about it too! Come and visit us again soon! And remember that "winter" in Fallbrook is amazing. Absolutely NO snow! NO sleet! NO ice! We get only about 10 inches of rain a year and most of that comes down at night. I call it "polite rain" because it seldom ruins your day. We have hummingbirds visiting us all year long and you can golf almost every day. By late January, early February, we have blossoms on the trees and my absolute favorite month is March. The nights are cool enough to enjoy a fire in the evening but, while everyone else is suffering through the misery that is winter in much of the world, we in Fallbrook are happily enjoying days in the high 60s and low 70s. We call those "winter" days Fallbrook Flip Flop Days because we have all the windows open and are running around in our shorts and Flip Flops. Love it! So book early to secure your preferred dates!
This place was so perfect for our family! Everything exceeded all expectations. This was my first experience with VRBO. I most certainly go through them again. This house in particular was outstanding and the communication with the owner was extremely effeciant. What drew me to this house was that it was on a golf course and was so beautiful. When you get there you realize that it is more beautiful in person! I also loved that this house allowed us to rent it for less than a week. A rare find smack dab in the middle of summer. The owner was wonderful to work with.
