Alisa, Irvine, CA. Feb. 2018

"Beautiful home with amazing views. Very peaceful and relaxing!!"

Yajing, Shanghi, China, Feb. 2018

这是一次很棒的住宿体验,房间布置很漂亮也很温暖,环境很好,建在峡谷间,视野开阔。早上听鸟唱歌,嗅青草香味,经主人同意,还可以提着篮子采摘一筐挂着露水的橙子。房东非常友善和热情,我们到达已是深夜,房东不仅等着我们,还为我们准备了水果、巧克力,尤其是女主人精心制作的布朗尼蛋糕,非常好吃。临别房东还请我们吃了非常美味的午餐,感谢,同时也向大家强力推荐。English Translation;

It was a great stay, the room was beautiful and warm, the environment was good, and it was built in the canyon with wide views. Listen to the birds singing in the morning, sniff green grass scent, with the owner's consent, you can also carry a basket picking a basket of dew-hung orange. The landlord was very friendly and welcoming. We arrived late at night. The landlord not only waited for us, but also prepared us the brownie cake with fruit, chocolate and especially the hostess. It was delicious. Parting landlord also invited us to eat a very delicious lunch, thanks, but also strongly recommend to everyone.

Samira, Los Angeles, Feb. 2018

Can only recommend this place! Lovely hosts and lovely location. I️ was celebrating my birthday and they made me a cake and bought a bottle of champagne - so sweet! They respond in a quick time and give us enough space. Everything is really clean and you have enough supplies in the house! Can’t wait to go back here :)

Blanca, Bellflower, CA. Feb. 2018, Great place to stay, very peaceful and clean and host is awesome

Tami, Stockton, CA. Jan. 2018 This Home and views are truly amazing!!! The home so very clean and tasteful. Beds are amazing. Then to top it off your host Harvey and Rachel are some of the best people you could find. They make everyone feel so welcome, so comfortable. The view and the serenity are priceless. Please don’t consider any other place. This is a hidden gem. You could not find better. I’ll be visiting as often as I can when down so cal. Thank you again. Your both amazing

Why Harvey and Rachel Pelicano chose Valley Center

We lived on a large ranch in the wine country in Northern California for over 20 years. When we came to Southern California, we searched for a place that gave us the Serenity and Peacefulness that we had been accustomed to in the Sierra Foothills. We considered many properties and spent over a year looking for just the right one. As soon as we saw this home we knew our search was over and we had found our forever home, an agricultural area with beauty and wildlife and the most Amazing View and Sunsets from our backyard we could ever hope for.

Ross, Milwakee, WI, Jan. 2018, As a frequent user of ABB this was by far one the best experiences I’ve had. Harvey and Rachel’s place is amazing inside and out. They go above and beyond for their guests - even providing a local map with places of interest to check out. Would definitely stay here again!

As a frequent user of AirBnB this was by far one the best experiences I’ve had. Harvey and Rachel’s place is amazing inside and out. They go above and beyond for their guests - even providing a local map with places of interest to check out. Would definitely stay here again!

What makes this guest house unique

So peaceful and quiet, a rural setting, yet less than 8 minutes to Interstate 15

Christina, San Diego, CA. Jan. 2018 Harvey and Rachel were very accommodating and showed us lots of love with all the personal touches during our stay. It really was just what we were looking for in a local getaway birthday celebration. We will definitley be coming back and will be recommending to our friends!

Allen, UT. Jan. 2018, Harvey and Rachel were excellent hosts! As first time AirBnB users we hoped for the were surprised by how much we enjoyed the experience. We were warmly greeted and welcomed into their home with fresh chocolate brownies. Throughout the stay they accepted an Amazon delivery for us, gave suggestions about local sights, provided useful beach and pool items, and even offered to pick up groceries from town. It truly felt like staying with family and Harvey and Rachel were fun to visit with. Communication with them was excellent, helpful, and very prompt. They were available at a moments notice and gave us plenty of privacy. Their home was beautiful, secure, well lighted at night, and comfortable. We loved that there was a washer and dryer, full kitchen, including typical food staples, and plenty of towels. The patio included a BBQ, pool & heated spa, and generous outdoor seating / lounging and dining area. The views of the canyon were breath-taking. As a family of seven (5 kids under 12) we all fit with

Pristine, comfortable, gracious, and exotic.

  • 5 of 5

Harvey and Rachel are as sweet as can be. I brought my family here and only wish we had more time at the property. We stayed two very thoughtful and serene nights. The kiddos loved the pool and I had romantic sunsets with my lady. Everything was better than expected. They had great local suggestions from nice food to daily activities. I can't wait to go it again.

Very Peaceful and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing experience at this VRBO. It is located outside the busyness of California. When we arrived we were greeted by Harvey and Rachel. They gave us a tour of the property and let us know that they would be there if we needed anything during the stay. The actual VRBO was perfect! It had everything a person would need—towels, beach towels, pool floaties, games, everything you need in a kitchen, HUGE bathroom, great bedrooms, WiFi, and cable. I could go on and on. Harvey and Rachel were available to let us know of fun things to do around them. You will not regret staying here!

The property is well maintained and clean. Pool and backyard are very nice.

  • 4 of 5

My extended family of six and I had a very relaxing weekend getaway here.

The guest home is comfortable, and would be for even more than six adults. The hosts Harvey and Rachel were gracious and welcoming. They made sure we had fresh fruit, milk, eggs, bread, and other food staples.

We had full use of the pool and backyard and truly enjoyed our time in the pool and hot tub - we even used the grill to bbq one night. My morning yoga was so serene overlooking the valley and the small road leading up to the home was a great place for a run.

The hot tub in the large bathroom was a big plus. We ended up stopping by the nearest Target right after our day at the Safari Park to buy bubble bath.

The location feels a bit like a retreat since it is up in the hills and the nearest small grocery store and restaurant (hamburger stand) are about 15 minutes away. It would be wise to do your research on the stores-restaurants you will need before you get there, but Harvey and Rachel do provide a list of these in the area in the guest book.

It is about 30 minutes from the Safari Park and an hour from San Diego.

If you visit San Diego, download the Bird or Lime app (electric scooter and bikes). That was a fun way to cover more of San Diego!

My daughters loved the Cat Cafe by the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego. You can buy a coffee and hang out with cats that are up for adoption.

Overall we were very satisfied with our experince even though driving the last 3.5 miles to get to the house on that winding little road were a bit scary for me (only because I am a chicken according to my 26 yr old nephew)

I would definitely recommend this guest home!

(The toilet is very low flow and caused us a little frustration at times. That was our only reason for not giving it five stars.)

Best relaxing, peaceful and just a fun stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I wanted to go to Legoland, but didn't want to stay at a hotel. After looking at what was available VRBO, there was no doubt we found a gem.

From the moment we got there to the moment we left, we left welcomed at Harvey and Rachel's guest house.

As a family from Minnesota, we were looking to get outdoors and see the ocean! After going to Legoland for a day we figured the next day we'd spend at the beach, but our kids (ages 6 & 8) thought that 1 hour at the ocean was enough and just wanted to go back to Harvey and Rachel's!!! Even they LOVED it there. There's so much beauty all around you there.....and the host know where to eat. Each place they steared us too was amazing.

We were so sad to leave and wished we could have extended our stay....our kiddos even cried leaving!! We all loved the house, the environment, and really enjoyed getting to know Harvey and Rachel. They are there if you want to talk with them (which how could you not? They are wonderful people) but they are also about giving you space. They want you to be happy and will stay clear or come talk, depending on what you want. We just loved them.

Our kids have been asking "when will we go back to Harvey and Rachel's?" Definitely sometime...i can't image not going back. It was an ideal stay, other than being too short. :)

Harvey even made my son a map of where we could go hiking....made him feel so special. We are definitely planning to revisit!

Stunning views and wonderful hosts!! The location was picture perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ridge Top Ranch with our three daughters for spring break. The house was everything we could have wanted and more! We wanted to see many sights in southern California and the location of the house made it easy to visit many places and yet have a relaxing time. The views at the house were simply stunning ! The pool and hot tub and huge patio were enjoyed by all.

Harvey and Rachel were gracious hosts and answered our questions along the way . The house had many things provided so it made our stay carefree. Staying at the Ridge Top Ranch was a highlight of our trip:)

We are in a rural area, and some of these activities may be over 15 miles, but most not further than 25 miles.

If you are a serious bicycle rider, "Tour de France" type, we have Couser Canyon less than 1/2 mile away, frequented on the weekends by many.

For the motorcycle dirt riders, we have the Pala Motocross tracks less than 10 minutes away.
