About Carrie Brennan 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! I am happy to help all of our guests plan out their vacation time in San Diego and beyond. This is my home and my TOWN and I want you to LOVE it and explore everything So Cal has to offer!
Carrie Brennan Wilhite purchased this House in 2001
Why Carrie Brennan 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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This vacation home did not disappoint! The backyard oasis is large and perfect for many family activities. This is a very kid friendly home and even has a "secret" play room especially for very young kids. As the main renter, I did not feel like I had to count all the plates, silverware, dishes, etc. and this greatly helped me to relax. Carrie is probably the most hospitable rental owner we have ever met.
Great Family Home
We enjoyed the property very much and it was very conducive for our family with small grandchildren. The fenced/gated pool and hot tub area was a big hit with the kids. Home had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation in Oceanside.
Fab family vacay
Our family group of 7 adults and 3 kids was amply accommodated at Casa de Allegra. The backyard was the star of the show. What a pool! Loved the spa. Putting green was so fun. Used it more than expected! Outdoor kitchen was amazing. Kids loved the swings. We used the outdoor fireplace to make s'mores. Saw hummingbirds, bunnies and a family of ducks! Location was perfect. Could walk to Walmart for milk and other necessities whenever we ran out. Made day trips into San Diego: Balboa Park, Coronado Island. So close to the Carlsbad Outlets. Easy drive to and from airport. Happy to be provided with the kiddie toilet seat and step stools for the kids. Also used the strollers. Kitchen was well appointed with all the pots, small appliances, and kids cutlery we needed. We all enjoyed the property and it was everything as advertised.
Casa De Allegra is exactly as described!! A family Paradise vacation home! The owners have outdone themselves with all the amenities for a family group. Kitchen stocked with dishes, cookware and kids dishes. No need to pack anything but clothes for adults and kids. Strollers, high chairs, bicycles for the kids. Beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers for adults!!! But why leave the house?!?! The backyard will keep the family entertained for days!! And then there is the Climate!!! Grab your morning coffee sit outside by the fire and watch the morning news. Get your hot tub fix while breakfast is being cooked (by a family member). Love Love Love CDA!!! Can’t wait to return!!
Brilliant - perfect for families.
It is literally a home away from home.
Renting the property was really straightforward. Carrie was helpful and informative.
The house is superb worked so well for us as it literally is a home from home. My 4 year old son loved the outdoor areas and was just as happy chilling, riding bikes / scooters, as he was visiting Disney, USS Midway, museums at Balboa park and SD Zoo. The location is perfect for all of the above mentioned day trips.
I also have a 6 month old son too and everything we needed was there. High Chair, jumperoo, baby bouncer etc. Lovely kitchen and attached sofa area.
Great outdoor bbq and eating area too. Unfortunately we couldn’t use too frequently as the weather wasn’t as good as we had hoped.
You can easily walk / run to the beach, about a mile away. The supermarkets are a 5 min walk from the house but do not encroach on the lovely peaceful cul de sac where the house is situated. Great views. Make sure you try Beach Break Cafe great food (slightly too big portions) and service and lots of nice places to eat in Carlsbad Village too.
Would highly recommend for families and extended families as there is plenty of space that you won’t get on each other’s nerves ;) we will hopefully be back.
Fabulous house and grounds that exceeded our expectations. Carrie was there when needed, great host.
This property is a must stay. Everything and more you could need or want in a rental. Close to beaches, shops and more. Carrie is fabulous to work with and made us feel right at home.
We are centrally located with short drive times to the San Diego Safari Park (30 minutes), Legoland (8 minutes), San Diego Zoo (35 minutes), Sea World (30 minutes), Disneyland (45 minutes), and Knotts Berry Farm (55 minutes)!
