About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms , 5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Our property is a very relaxing tranquil place to enjoy the amazing views and spend a very peaceful vacation. Please look for the link just below owner information for our video.

*There is no longer a Cat that lives at the home as of 3/2015

The Property sits on over an acre that backs up onto parkland which is part of the San Dieguito River park with miles of trails surrounding beautiful Lake Hodges.

Enjoy the music system throughout the home with an endless music selection from Pandora and Rhapsody or use your ipod in the docking station.

The home itself is entirely custom with such design amenities as sand-blasted floor etchings, widespread arches & niches along with custom furniture throughout and wall murals in the kitchen, dining room and one bedroom, faux-finished walls throughout, bringing a sense of warmth, peace & calm throughout. The custom kitchen has lofted beam ceiling with a large roof skylight, large island with sink & seating for 4, 6-burner gas cook top, oven, double sink, and rolling cutting board. There is a 30 ft round entry turret entrance with a winding staircase to the second floor master suite, a den & office with balcony . Nearly all ceilings are 10 ft or more and many are lofted with sand blasted beams.

There are great outdoor living spaces which include the covered patio with gas barbecue, sink, refrigerator, serving area, and pizza oven. A covered Lanai on the lakeside with hanging bench swing for watching sunsets. The courtyard with its fireplace & fountain is surrounded by the entry turret, dining room with bi-fold doors, kitchen, and the art studio/guestroom, all is beautifully landscaped for a peaceful experience .

Best of all, the home was designed to capture the magnificent views of Lake Hodges and the mountains behind. The kitchen, the family room, the living room, the master suite and deck, the office, two other bedrooms, and the patio all capture the views. The home sits on a quiet culdesac and the neighborhood is great for walking or running.

We look forward to renting this property to you; we are sure that the whole experience will be superb. More pictures upon request.
