Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

I was very glad to get the opportunity to stay here. They accommodated each and everything I asked for. The grounds are incredibly. Amazing views of the horses while getting up and going in the morning. It's very quite. Only 4 minutes from town. I was able to stick the refrigerator with all I needed at Albertsons which is only 4 mins away. I would definitely recommend them again.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying here. The property was in a great location, not too far from the day trips we took to the coast (San Clemente, Torrey Pines, La Jolla), but far enough to enjoy the peacefulness of the farm. We were able to interact with the animals each day. The horses were very sweet and two of the pigs, Thomas and Romeo, were hilarious. Courtney and John were wonderful hosts, inviting us to enjoy fresh eggs from the farm chickens and leaving some fresh fruit on our doorstep. If we ever head back to the San Diego area, we'll definitely book our stay here again.

The perfect Retreat - just what the dogs and I needed

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places I have stayed at with the dogs, this one is the most comfortable because the dogs are truly welcome. There are no rules for the dogs -- common sense and consideration is a given - no need for lots ot do's and don'ts. I loved Courtney's touches on the decor, and hearing the horses playing and the pigs snorting in the night. Loved the sounds of the rooster ( who I think is time challenged). What a lovely place. The only thing that bothered me that has nothing to do with the Cozy Retreat is that the cars on the road go way too fast and I am concerned that someone will hit a wild animal, or a dog or cat that might cross the road. Thank you for the bottle of wine, and for the attention to every detail. The best part is when you stay here, you are also helping the rescue animals. Thank you Thank you Thank you Courtney and John.

Cozy private bedroom

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the farm. Very nice bedroom, just far enough away from hustle/bustle of Southern California, close enough to enjoy beaches, shops restaurants. Private entrance nice, felt like our own place.

My 11 year old daughter and I enjoyed staying at this place. My daughter loved the opportunity to interact with and feed the animals. Courtney and John are extremely nice and informative. The place is very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend staying here.
