                                                  My family enjoyed an ideal vacation. The house has a luxurious feel, the pool and hot tub are amazing, the area has much to see and do, and our hostess went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. No need to worry about this property. Truly outstanding!

                                                  Hi Ronda,

                                                  Thank you so much for your review. I’m so glad you had a lovely time! I hope to see you again! Thank you for being great guests!!


                                                  Beautiful property that feels like home!

                                                  dawn m.

                                                  We stayed at this home mid February while visiting our son in San Diego. Property was very clean and tastefully decorated. Michelle and her husband stopped by to assure our needs were met. She responded very quickly to any questions we had and arranged for us to eat at their favorite dining venues. The outdoor pool and patio area was beautiful. We enjoyed the very private and peaceful location. We would highly recommended this property. Thanks Michelle for making our stay so memorable.

                                                  The house and the host were wonderful!

                                                  Barbara M.

                                                  We had such a great experience - This house is beautiful and so well appointed.

                                                  We were having a family gathering and I needed a place for many of my family members to stay. This place was perfect. The location was just right - Easy to get to and a wonderful place to gather. We all ended up gathering here for our morning coffee. (If you get up early it is a great place to watched the sun rise.) The kitchen had everything we needed and was our favorite place to get her for breakfast. Lots of places to sit and talk and the 6 family members that stayed here all said it was just right. Very comfortable!

                                                  Michelle and her husband met us when we checked in and showed us all around. We had a couple of questions during the our stay and Michelle always responded immediately.

                                                  Great place. Great host(ess). Thank you Michelle!!

                                                  We loved it!

                                                  We have been renting houses for vacations for almost 2 years and we’ve had our best experience with this property. The house is beautifully located, and has an amazing view! You will find everything you need during your vacation( even pool toys, outdoor stereo system). The owner of the home, Michelle, was super helpful and nice! She will find a way to help you whatever you need. Thank you very much!

                                                  Thank you IIayda, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize that I didn't see your review sooner.

                                                  Happy New Year and hope to host you and your girls weekend again! Your family and Mom was especially lovely!


                                                  Perfect spot for a very happy occasion!

                                                  Cindy D.

                                                  My son recently got married in San Diego, and I'm from out of state. My relatives and I rented Michelle's awesome house and were thrilled. There was plenty of activity around the wedding, so this beautiful house fit the bill. Was close to all San Diego activities. Michelle is a very gracious hostess, and the house was relaxing, calm and beautifully decorated. Had everything we needed, down to toys for the pool. Lovely view, spacious and relaxing--and perfect spot to rest up for wedding activities or a home base for a great San Diego vacation. Peaceful and lovely. Thanks, Michelle!

                                                  Thank you so much for your review and kind words. I really enjoyed communicating with you, it was a pleasure.

                                                  I hope you visit again, thank you for taking great care of my property! I'm glad the house was perfect for the special occasion and congratulations!

                                                  Jenna R.

                                                  All I can say is Wow! Michelle, the owner of the home , was so responsive and helpful. From the time we booked until we checkd out, she was always available to answer questions and make recommendations. We loved that she greeted us upon arrival and the personalized gift basket was so welcoming and thoughtful. She went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We also LOVED the home and all it had to offer. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were well stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc. We enjoyed cooking meals in the well appointed kitchen. The outdoor area and the pool/spa were a huge hit with our group...With temperatures reaching 100-110 degrees, the pool was perfect for cooling off...We also appreciated the comfy outdoor furniture, pool floaties, beach towels, and sunscreen cabinet. There really is too much to mention! This home had it all and we would definitely recommend it and stay again! Thanks to Michelle for a great experience and a clean, comfortable, and well cared for home!
