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 Oceanside

We lived in this amazing oasis for 6 years! Oceanside is a terrific beach town and is central to everything you could want to do in San Diego or Orange County!

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.

Casa de Allegra

  • 5 of 5

My famiy had a fantastic time. The house lived up to all expectations and the backyard far exceeded. The location is great with easy access to the 5 and a very short distance to legoland, Sea World etc which was a great benefit as we had small children with us. The house is very well set up for families with lots of games and toys for youngsters. At the same time it is and elegant hone that worked very well for the adults. Carrie was a pleasure to work with very clear, accessible and friendly. I will be recommending this property to anybody who expresses an interest in the San Diego area.

Visiting Jeremy

  • 5 of 5

We planned our family vacation around visiting our son who is stationed at Camp Pendleton. We saw this house on the Vrbo site and instantly knew that this was the perfect place for us. We had 4 couples and our son staying at the house. We had plenty of room in the house and plenty of things to do in the backyard.The pool,spa,grill area,bar and putting green was relaxing and so much fun for all. We also went to the San Diego zoo and spent a wonderful day in Carlsbad. Everything was perfect in and around the house. Our son is stationed at Camp Pendleton for another 18 months so we will definitely rent here again.Great vacation. The pictures and description on the website are 100 percent accurate.

Great property for families in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our family vacation in a clean and safe neighborhood! There was plenty of room for our entire extended family (5 adults and 4 kids: ages 4 months to 8 years) and the house included baby items (stroller, high chair, pack 'n' play) so we didn't have to travel with them! The kids LOVED the playroom under the stairs! It was like a hidden treasure! It was a great location where we could spend the day swimming at the house and only a short drive to the beach! Also a great location to visit LegoLand, Disneyland, and Sea World. We highly recommend this property as a home away from home!

Fantastic Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Eleven of us celebrated my 70th birthday at Casa de Allegra. The accommodations were excellent. We had four little ones under three in tow. It was a paradise for kiddos as well as adults. The children could just go and play. They were thoroughly entertained at the Casa. We did venture to the beach (less than 4 minutes by car for a few outings and a caravan full of toddlers made one trip to nearby Legoland. The home has everything you will need for your holiday. This made it so easy to just play and enjoy the week without concern. Carrie was extremely helpful and efficient in satisfying our needs when small issues arose. The toddlers still talk about 'Grammy's house' in California and the adults in the party want to go back soon!
