"This home was an exquisite escape for my family, and was a perfect destination for my parents' birthday weekend, with poolside fun in great weather. The entire home is gorgeous and welcoming, and the pictures don't do it justice. If you're looking for a spot to please a dozen family members, this is it. Just as guests have stated in other reviews, the biggest problem with this booking is having to leave."

"Our famiy (13 of us) had the most wonderful time at "El Rufugio". We are in complete agreement with every comment made above. When we first arrived, we we awestruck at the views, the unique beauty of the place and the massive rooms. Every accomodation for cooking and eating together was provided, what a joy!! There is something about this house that is "home". The welcoming warmth, peace, comfort and provision for wholesome "togetherness" just imminates in every space. Our every need was at our fingertips!! We all hated to leave and hope we get to return. Our whole family thanks you, Steve, for building and sharing El Rufugio!!"

"If you are going to the Fallbrook area this is the place to stay. The views are beautiful and so peaceful. You can't miss hitting the clubhouse for great drinks, friendly service and amazing views. The house is as cute as it looks. Thank you Tim and Patty. And the Enchiladas were so good."

"We had the best time for a birthday part. Everyone is still talking about it. Amazing house, room for everyone to be comfortable, large kitchen with open floor plan to living room. Windows in the kitchen are soooo nice, looks out over the pool. Pool/spa area amazing. Casitas are perfect for couples with a small child or older teens. They are pretty much like a 1 bdrm studio. No 5 star because of a couple minor things: pool sweeper didn't work, master bath heater didn't work (not that we needed it) and shower door stuck. No water pressure in master shower (even when no one was in the house), lamp in twin guest room - the knob on the lamp didn't work, just twisted, fans in serious need of cleaning - when we turned the fan on in the other guest room dust flew everywhere, it looked like it was snowing. Besides all this I would DEFINATELY go back, in fact my sister in law has a birthday coming up and wants to rent it. Sasha did a great job communicating between us and the owners , no problem getting my deposit back (w/in 1 day!)"
