About Carrie Wilhite

In my life before kids, I was a special events professional! I love having fun and now I've found a way to share that with others - stay in my home and have the vacation of a lifetime with your family and friends!

Carrie Wilhite purchased this house in 2001

Why Carrie Wilhite chose Fire Mountain

We chose to live in the Oceanside area because my grandmother lived here and I'd spent every summer visiting! When we got married and had to choose a neighborhood, Oceanside felt like home and always will! this is our oasis! We think Oceanside is a terrific beach town with so much to offer! Our town is growing up too - with new restaurants and shops opening weekly! It eclectic, vibrant, full of surprises for visitors. Oceanside is central to everything you could want to do in San Diego or Orange County - it's the perfect location!

What makes this house unique

Our home gives you the opportunity to enjoy everything the area has to offer. You can zip to the beach to enjoy a dip in the ocean and to play in the sand. Then, when you feel like something else, you can come back to relax in the spa, lay in the sun, or lounge in the water on our shamu shelf. If you are an outdoorsy person, all of your meals can be cooked outside just like you are camping - without all the hassle of setting up a tent and a campsite! You can even roast marshmallows around the fire, but you can do it while watching a Disney movie on the outdoor TV. It's an amazing home with all the entertainment opportunities you could possibly want on a special trip to San Diego. Casa de Allegra isn't just any old vacation rental, this is a home that was built with family and making memories as our main priorities. Now it can be yours to share with your loved ones and make your own amazing memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall, FABULOUS time was had by all! Our kids are going to be dreaming about our next trip to San Diego and Casa de Allegra. Thanks for the well-appointed accomodations and attention to detail. We recommend your VRBO very highly! Thaks so much! All the best!

Paradise!!! Casa de Allegra is a fantastic home with a wonderful decor to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of Casa de Allegra has put her heart into assuring that everything that you could possibly need or want are supplied in the house. The kitchen had everything to feel that you were at home! Best of all, the pool, hot tub, fountain and landscape look like paradise! During our stay, we spent most of our time outside relaxing with our family. Awesome to have our privacy, but the size of the pool is like a hotel or resort pool. Our children loved the playground, pool, putting green area....everything!!! We love the exquisite master bedroom suite....heavenly!!! Carrie was very easy to work with and accommodating...wanting us to relax and enjoy our stay! What a wonderful place to enjoy our family for a week!!! Thank you!

A little piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family (daughters and their families) stayed for a week at this spacious home. The grandkids had to be pried away from the toys, pool, playrooms, etc to go to other fun places.

There were plenty of beds, supplies, and seating for everyone.

We would definitely consider staying here again. I can’t say enough good things about how perfect this home was for our family vacation.

Very little reason to leave the Casa

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples and 2 toddlers - all of our kids, their significants and grandkids under one roof - and we found very little need to venture out.

The property was incredibly clean and well-stocked. We had a full Thanksgiving dinner and everything we needed was in the kitchen - right on down to a KitchenAid stand mixer.

The pool, spa, outdoor fireplace and the entire back yard is fantastic. We found it so enjoyable that we didn't even go to the beach once even through the weather was perfect. The kids were entertained the entire time by the toys, books and activities provided.

Although the property is secluded and quiet, it's a short walk to all the shopping you need. We found the location very unique and convenient.

Highly recommend!

Amazing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic! We had two families staying here, 4 adults and 5 kids all 4 and under. The kids loved their bedrooms and the toys that are stocked in the house, this accounted for hours of enjoyment throughout the week. The grounds of the house are top notch! From the putting green, to the outdoor living spaces to the playground to the fully fenced pool you couldnt ask for anything more. For us parents it was such a relief having the pool area fully fenced as we could let the kids play in the backyard without fear of them running to the pool.

With respects to the location of the house it is great as you’re an hour or less to the major attractions (Disneyland, Sea World, Legoland, San Diego Zoo) and you’re super close to some amazing beaches.

We absolutely loved our time here and will definitely be back.

Christmas Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? From the time we walked in and our grandson asked if we are staying in a mansion, to coming home and our granddaughter asking if we are going to our “Christmas house” again! This house is perfect for families. The grounds are beautifully maintained, as is the house. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need. There are plenty of bedding, towels, and beach towels. Everything you need for the beach including chairs, coolers, and toys. We even found forks for the fire and made S’mores on the beach one night! The little ones loved the playroom under the stairs with plenty of games, and they also played outside on the driveway with skateboards and bikes. There was plenty for the adults to do, too. The putting green, the outside fireplace, the outside bar area. The neighborhood is wonderful, and the store is very easy to walk to. The pictures you see are exactly what you get! The pool and hot tub are amazing! Thank you, and we would love to return again!

fabulous home and back yard

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Allegra is a beautiful home that we have stayed at twice and will return again in the future. If you are looking for a beautiful home with an amazing yard, then this is it. We were a party of 6 adults and 4 children ages 6-11 yrs old and there was plenty of room for all. The kids did not want to leave the yard and the pool was incredible. Can't wait to go back, Sam and Carol from Boston, Mass
