This home is also for sale. Therefore, we are concentrating on rentals in the next 30 - 120 days, but are open to contracting further out for more risk-tolerant clients. We are happy to discuss the realty history and potential safeguards for your stay.

We are a private family luxury estate home, and as such, tend to be priced higher on the market. This is due to the size of areas that need to be prepared properly, all of the amenities, the quality of materials used through out the estate, and so on. We are happy to discuss pricing and length of stay, but please keep in mind than an estate of this nature is expensive to maintain to such a high standard, and therefore the rental price needs to make sense. We have an enormously high overhead. So while we are happy to discuss options that could reduce the rental rate a bit, it most likely would still be minimal in order to financially make sense to our bottom line.

Contact for more info and photos. Serious inquiries only. All interested parties will be qualified before rental is approved.

                      • Bernard Gardens is located a few minutes from the Del Mar Racetrack and Del Mar beaches. Nestled in the hilltops of the San Dieguito River Valley, we are just enough east and above sea level to escape the majority of coastal marine layer. Even a foggy day on the coast will be a beautiful sunny day here. The Del Rayo Plaza, a few minutes walking distance away, offers a variety of shops and amenities from Italian to sushi, fashion to fitness, and from facial to financial. Rancho Santa Fe is known for it's quaint Covenant community which offers even more savory delights, shopping experiences and activities a short drive away - fine jewelry, antiques, several art galleries, piano and live entertainment venues, golf courses, horseback riding, hiking, cycling and more. We are in close proximity to Lego Land, Sea World, the world famous San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal Park. A little further distance south is Soak City Waterpark. Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farms in Los Angeles are about 2 hours north....moreless

                        I searched all over So Cal for a location to have a very intimate wedding (25 people). Wee found Bernard Gardens and Mandy let me come view the property before booking. All 25 family members spent the weekend at the gorgeous estate. Everyone had an amazing time. The location is perfect, close to everything in San Diego but on such a large estate, you feel as if you are in a tropical island location. We used the Palapa surrounded by a beautiful Koi pond as the Wedding Ceremony site. The Wedding pictures are so stunning, it is almost unreal. Even though the price is a bit expensive, this place is worth every penny. You simply must see it in person, the pictures do NOT do the place justice.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.

                        Manager response: Michelle! We were so honored to be a part of your special day! Focused on long term rentals, we may allow for a small celebrations like yours with very limited guest lists if agreed to in advance. We were delighted to accommodate your wedding vacation, and so glad that your memories and photos are sweet! We love a very lush tropical feel, and property certainly does have that! Being a private home with high overhead, we realize that we are more of a 'boutique' vacation rental and may not be affordable to all inquiries. Also, we will always allow for advance showings as possible for qualified clients. :) We are so happy that you are so happy! Thanks for the great review! Mandy

                        it's not often an experience exceeds expectations - but this one did. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The management is extremely helpful when needed as is the owner. The property is centrally located to shopping, beach, restaurants, golf courses as well as parks and the zoo. This place has everything, well equipped kitchen, laundry etc. The movie theater is perfect - unlike any I have ever seen in a private residence. This is a great house for families because of the pools, spas, game room, theater, tennis court and all the other toys. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying their stay here. We have raved about to our friends.

                        Manager response: Tommie! wow! We are so happy when we exceed expectations! This is what we strive for! Thank you for the compliment! Our location really is central to any activity or attraction in Southern California, that is, if you actually leave the property! We find so many guests end up skipping out on outside activities to enjoy all of the amenities here! Thanks for spreading the word! Hopefully we will see your family and referred friends some time soon! Mandy

                        Amazing! What a beautiful property with great amenities. We had a large group and the estate housed us all comfortably, entertained ages 5-75 with the grounds, pool, workout room, koi pond and of course the out-of-this-world movie room! The moms all loved the walk in refrigerator. We had a slight glitch with the tv in the family room the night we arrived but the manager and owner both called us to try to work it through and when we couldn't they had a tech out the next day, Saturday, to get it working - great service. Thanks Mandy, we'll be back:)

                        We rented this home for a large group of family to stay for a relaxing vacation. We all had a very good time and would recommend this place to anyone. The pictures accurately depict the house and property. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The owners were very attentive and easy to deal with. I really enjoyed the fact that the house is on a large piece of property, all of which was beautiful. Many little areas and hideaways on the grounds. There were 12-14 of us (it could easily accommodate more) and we were never crowded for space, because of all the different options for "getting away" without leaving the property!

                        Manager response: Brad and Renee! Thank you for spending two weeks with us! We are so happy that you were comfortable and relaxed! It is important to us to accurately represent the home and to be detailed with our maintenance, both inside and out... And we do strive to have warm and welcoming, yet professional and efficient 'customer service'... And we appreciate it that you appreciate it! :) It was great having you! Hope to see you next spring again! Mandy

                        This was a truly amazing property, that exceeded my expectations 10 fold!!! Our family felt like we never had to leave because we were at our own Grand Wailea! Swimming, tennis, bbq, horse racing, polo a true treat! The management team was great at communication and delivered a true A+ experience! Thank you Mandy and team!!!

                        We gathered our small family and closest friends together here for a week surrounding our wedding. It was a delightful stay, worth every penny. The entire villa has exquisite taste yet is comfortable to live in. The grounds are beautiful and functional. My family especially enjoyed the hot spas and the (at this time of year) very cold swimming pool, as well as the outdoor grills and pizza oven. The wedding itself was held in the "palapa", a tropical pagoda-like covered deck overlooking two koi ponds, while the reception and formal dinner was held inside. Mandy, who manages the property but also has experience in event planning, was amazing helping organize and get things done, despite our complex requirements -- we hired her for the event itself, on top of the week-long stay, and it was worth every penny. All in all, I couldn't be happier.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay, as that is what we strive for! Congratulations again on your marriage, I felt honored to be a part of it! : ) I hope we keep in touch! Mandy

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About: Private home managed by a Property Manager.

                      Why Rancho Santa Fe:
                      Bernard Gardens, previously named Corona de la Valle and Hacienda Grande, situated on 4.5+ acres, the showcase mansion in the crown of the Del Rayo Estates overlooks the San Diegueto Valley with a clear view to Del Mar and the ocean. Named Del Rayo by the late Gene Klein, legendary owner of the San Diego Chargers football team and breeder of Kentucky Derby horseracing champions, he was lured to the area’s ideal climate, and committed to retaining the rural atmosphere. As a result, he dedicated the majority of the land to pastures and planned to build palatial estates for his new community overlooking the valley. Libri Development purchased Del Rayo Estates after Klein’s death and completed this gem of them all, Corona de la Valle. In the 1920’s Rancho Santa Fe was becoming the secluded retreat for Hollywood stars; Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly and Danny Kaye were some of the largest property owners. Nearby was the 14,000acre Rancho Zorro of America’s sweethearts Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, property which today is known as Fairbanks Ranch, “next door neighbor” to Del Rayo Estates. The neighborhhood boasts the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, Rancho Santa Fe Farms Golf Club, Rancho Valencia Tennis Resort and the Heritage Country Club, along with wold class polo facilities and racing centers. Each year a house of significant historic or architectural merit, is selected by a Designers Showcase committee. In 1991, Bernard Gardens was designated as the 18th annual Designers Showcase Home. Architect for the original home structure was Richard Salpietra. Bought by the current owner in 2001, the property went through a multi-year, multi-million dollar remodel and building phase. The guest home and gym were added as well as making the master home more spacious by removing walls and lightening the color scheme and design/decor.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      San Diego Home/Garden magazine: “ [B Gardens] has a movie star glamour that brings to mind the grandest weekend parties of Hollywood’s heyday. A mansion for grand-style California entertaining, [BG] is complete with an orchard, and extensive patios, porticos and terraces around a sparkling pool and spa. Beyond is a private guest house and tennis courts. Built on the hillside above the San Diegueto River Valley, it has a panoramic view. In the evenings, ribbon-colored hot air balloons rise on imperceptible breezes and float like clouds overhead. The valley itself is becoming world-renowned as a center of equestrian activity. A true fantasy house.'
