Spacious, comfortable, convenient -- perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5


Home away from home; owner extremely responsive and available if needed. This house has all the space you need whether a small family or group or a large one. There are four bedrooms on the main level and an additional one available downstairs (small fee). There are three and a half bathrooms on the main level. Fully appointed kitchen gives you the option to eat in. Very close to I-15 and the towns of Vista and Oceanside.


This gorgeous house was our home away from home while we visited California to meet our new grandbaby. We had 1 senior, 4 adults, 3 older teens (and an infant). There were plenty of bedrooms (a fifth downstairs is available at a very reasonable additional charge) and enough living space that you could read or watch TV or be on your phone without annoying each other.

The owner is very responsive and readily available should you need anything. I wrote in my message that my mom was older and Sunrise was so kind as to ensure that my mom could handle the steps to the front door and a few within the house. Check in and check out were so easy!

We called the first set of bedrooms the in-law area; they are on the same level as the front door and the TV room. There is a full bathroom in that area as well. There is a pool table that was great fun. There are three steps to the kitchen, another living room area (with fireplace), and the dining table (and the dining table was set to the number of guests – such a sweet and considerate gesture).

The kitchen is awesome! There is a pantry available to store your groceries and the kitchen is fully appointed to meet all your needs. Sunrise even has dishes based on the season (we had Christmas/winter themed) so it really does feel like home.

There is a laundry room on the main level.

The master bedroom and another bedroom are in another wing coming off the kitchen area. There is another full bathroom (which made our youngest feel so special since he has always shared a bathroom). The master bathroom is really nice with a jacuzzi tub in addition to the shower area.

The location is beautiful; set among the hills but convenient to town and the I-15. Easy trip to Vista for groceries or restaurants. Oceanside but a short ride away.

When our plans bring us back to SoCal, we will gladly and very willingly rent this home again.

Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious with great amenities. It is a great for entertaining a large gathering. We are originally from North San Diego county and came back for a family gathering. Family from out of town stayed at the house and we used the house for hosting extended family still living in the area. The barbeque and large surrounding deck was great.

Son got married, had rehearsal dinner here and all bridesmaids got ready here

  • 5 of 5

It couldn't have been better!! We were blown away by the size of the place and it accommodated the 40+ guests we had at the dinner perfectly. The bridal party hung out and even had S'mores around the fire pit. The next day the bridesmaids all showed up and had a blast getting ready.

All in all it was a great place and made the wedding day that much easier!

Thank you for a great stay!

We stayed for four nights while attending a wedding in the area. We had family members from 9 months to 85 years old. The home is spacious and well provided and the spaciousness allowed for all to feel comfortable, but not in each other's face. The seclusion made for no concerns in disturbing neighbors with early and late comings and goings. We really enjoyed our stay and would consider coming again. Thank you for sharing your gracious home with us.

My family and I stayed in this BEAUTIFUL home for 5 days and 4 nights. Let me tell you, these pictures are do not even compare to the actual place! There's soo much space and amenities which was EXTREMELY helpful for traveling with little ones and grandparents. The large kitchen allowed for everyone to help with cooking and many spots throughout the home for everyone to just lounge and catch up. There were board games for the kids, a billiard pool, darts, ping-pong table and an exercise room for the adults. The home was clean and well-maintained.

We chose this home because it was located in an area where our relative was getting married. Getting to and from the wedding site was a breeze. The stores and eateries are nearby, yet the home is situated far out enough where you could easily forget about the hustle and bustle of life. The air flowed really well through the home and didn't even have to turn on the AC - and it was during the summer!

We loved the home so much that we didn't want to leave to our next destination.

Sunrise was extremely helpful during the booking process and easily accessible.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Great place for a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice! The home much bigger and spacious than we expected and the amenities were excellent. Our executive board and adviser loved the home especially because it felt so peaceful and relaxing: perfect for a weekend getaway or retreat. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with as well. Definitely would rent here again for our next retreat!
