About Noreen Trutanich

Carmen (Nuch) and Noreen have been married for 40 years. We have four adult children and nine grandchildren.We live in Naples Long Beach and hope to retire someday to Lake San Marcos. Noreen is a retired flight attendant but loves meeting tenants and making sure they enjoy their stay at the Lake house. Nuch, a former elected official and an attorney, works at a Law Firm in Los Angeles. We have plans someday to retire to our Lake home but for now, we love sharing the experience of Lake San Marcos with everyone.

Noreen Trutanich purchased this house in 2004

Why Noreen Trutanich chose San Marcos

A funny story my husband ,Nuch said when he was leaving for work one morning late November 2003. "I want to drive to San Marcos today" he had just read an ad in the classified section of the newspaper "Lake property for sale by owner " We drove together that afternoon to see the property and what a terrible mess ! Both front and back yards were so over grown that a boat was found under the rubbish weeks later after cleaning and clearing the front yard.. We both agreed to buy the home because we walked in and immediately felt peaceful it just had a good feeling nice comfortable floor plan and great location! We bought it as is with all faults and found plenty of them. Eight months later I read an article about vacation renting your second property . So we furnished it and hung a sign on a tree. Our first tenants leased it for 3 months while there home was being built in the area and stayed another 3 months until every detail of there home was completed. My husband and I have had the wonderful pleasure of meeting so many nice people by sharing our Lake house for the last 15 years. Those Families have made their own memories in our home and a couple families loved it so much purchased their home in the neighborhood!

Amazing Lake Property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of August at this beautiful home. The owners have put a lot of money into upgrading this property. The pictures on VRBO do not do it justice. The kitchen is totally stocked! Plenty of glassware, silverware, dishes and much more. New appliances as well! The furnishings in this house are very very comfortable. My husband and I slept like babies in the comfortable master bedroom. We loved the patio off the room that had a water feature that runs all night. We loved that!! Our guests said the other beds were very comfortable as well! Everything about this home is so relaxing! The outdoor deck is lovely. We barbecued quite a bit and enjoyed sitting out there with evening cocktails! The boat was a lot of fun. We live in the desert so being on the water was a treat for us. Everyone that visited loved the boat rides!! Took a little practice for my husband to park it but he got the hang of it. Like I said this house has everything you could ask for. We look forward to going back next summer!! The owners Noreen and Nuch are always available to answer any questions!!

Beautiful home! Responsive, delightful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We literally just packed the clothes on our back and a few necessities and headed to this house. Everything you and will need is there. Beds are comfortable and house is wonderfully stocked with everything you need to have a great time. It was like a home away from home. Owners were always responsive, and are just delightful people. We feel honored to have been able to rent there!

Best Vacation Rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

WOW where do I start?? We live 5 minutes from this house and are under a remodel so we needed a place to stay with our 2 kids during this. Well, this house was everything and more! We fell in love with the house, the lake and the area! We are now thinking we should buy in that area! The house is set up perfectly! It is so clean with all the amenities you would need. On top of that we rented the boat. I highly recommend this! We used it every day to cruise and fish. Our kids loved it so much. It was a definite vacation living here. Even the restaurant Decoy and Dockside are just amazing! We highly recommend everything about the home and area. Also Noreen the owner always went out of her way to help us in any way we needed. We didn't want to leave!!!

Everything we could have hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

Looking to escape Seattle's long winter, we took a chance with Noreen and Carmen's home as we had no previous experience in the area generally, or Lake San Marcos specifically. Our stay exceeded our expectations! The location on the lake is perfect. The home is beautiful, and beautifully maintained. There is lots of golf around and we had access to a nice little gym just blocks away at the community center. Reading the newspaper with morning coffee in the sunroom while we checked Seattle's weather was a great way to start each day.

At different times during the month we accommodated guests from home as well as our children and grandchildren. Everyone loved the place! Be sure to include the electric boat with your stay, as it was a favorite with everyone for daily excursions on the lake for exploring, birding and fishing, and evening wine cruises. There are hydro-bikes and a pedal-boat as well, which the kids loved.

The home is equipped with everything you need. All the shopping necessary is in nearby San Marcos. Short drives to the beach, Legoland and the SD Wild Animal Park for the kids.

Finally, Noreen and Nuch are most generous and responsive hosts.

Hopefully this will become an annual trip.

... A Real Treasure ...

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure to enjoy this beautiful Lake San Marcos property on 2 occasions, both for 2 consecutive months. The home is a gem, in a quiet, beautiful setting. Fine furnishings and decor. Lovely neighbours, too. Our delightful recreation on the HydroBikes was very unique, pedaling the lake viewing swans, pelicans, egrets, and other wildlife. On rare, rainy days we spent time at the pool table in the sunroom. We even became pizza chefs, learning to excel with the outdoor pizza oven. Just relaxing on the beautiful outdoor deck was a favourite way to spend a few hours. We most appreciated the friendly home owners, who responded quickly and favourably to any questions or concerns. Their wish to ensure we were happy with our stay was evident. Very comfortable beds and a generously supplied kitchen were most welcomed.

The home is in close proximity to all San Diego has to offer ... Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and all its museums, the USS Midway, Point Loma, Coronado, and beautiful beaches. A drive north to San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, and Long Beach were highlights, too. We would not hesitate to consider another wonderful vacation here, and are grateful for this treasure! Thank you, Noreen & Nuch.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Best location in Lake San Marco's. The owners are very accommodating and very easy to work with and always readily available. They maintain the house in beautiful condition and it has everything you will need to be comfortable. The boats and the water bikes and the ping-pong table and pool table were added bonuses. My family had many enjoyable hours in this home. We rented two years in a row 3 months the first time in six months the second time. We liked it here so much that we ended up buying a home here at beautiful Lake San Marco's and selling our home in Arizona. We are avid golfers and the use of the golf cart to play St. Mark was an added bonus. The neighbors were terrific and this location was very very quiet.

Our home is a wonderful place to share and entertain friends or just enjoy the quiet, peaceful, solitude of lakeside living.
