Year Purchased: 2011

About: My wife and I purchased the home and quite literally transformed it inside and out - all with YOU in mind! We have lived in Ramona for almost 50 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. When we saw this property for sale, we knew it would be such a blessing to countless folks who want to escape to the countryside for fun and relaxation.

Why Ramona:
Our desire is that Failla Villa be a place of total relaxation and that precious memories would be made here. Our guest book is full of sweet praises about how they felt refreshed, care for and spoiled by all aspects of the property. Mission Accomplished! We are so grateful for all who have stayed at Failla Villa - they have become like family. We simply can't wait to meet you and pray that you would find Failla Villa to be a place that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We fell in love with every unique inch of the property as we saw such incredible potential! We have had such fun making it a one of a kind, jaw dropping property. There is truly so much to enjoy at Failla Villa! Everything from the personal little touches in the home, enjoying a cup of coffee on the front porch rockers, to the bon-fire pit for roasting marshmallows, to sitting under the gazebo listening to the babbling brook, to reading a book in the hammock hut or the Book Nook. The mini-golf course is not only fun and challenging to play, it's beautiful to look at. The views, breezes, landscaping, sunsets and the glory of the brilliant stars, all speak for themselves. We are positively confident you won't want to leave.
