Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Family is important to us. The house, the pool, the water slide, the play house, the built-in barbecue and the outdoor kitchen are designed for multi-generational families to use and to have fun and to play as our family have had in the past. Since our oldest son and his wife and our 4 lovely grandchildren moved to another state, we found that this property is much too large for just the two of us now. Upon listening and reading reviews of our guests as they share with us how much they've enjoyed the property---where they can all gather together in one place and enjoy each other's company---had given us much satisfaction. After all, our original vision that this beautiful property, be a gathering place for many families to find their own special place of comfort and retreat had come to fruition... We also travel a bit and we feel enriched meeting people from different cultures BUT most of all, we truly love meeting our guests who come from all over the world to stay and experience Bella~Tranquila Estate!!! Our Heartfelt thank you to all our former guests and to 'you'-- our future guests!

Why the Owner Chose Daley Ranch, Escondido, CA, USA:
Valley Center is a special place in San Diego County, tucked away up on the hills where we breathe a sigh of relief the moment we drive up the grade on Valley Center Road. We have wide spaces between the houses, many are on 2 acres and more. Avocados, citrus and ornamental plants are grown in some parts of our town. Here, we can be as private as we wish to be and/or we can be small town folks where the neighbors wave as we stroll around our neighborhood. Valley Center has an equestrian trail where you need not dismount if you were to cross the street while riding your horse--the street lights have push buttons at horse's height. The movie stars who used to ride their horses around Valley Center such as John Wayne, and many others would have approved on how beautiful the town turned out to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The salt water pool / slide of course had given us great enjoyment for our family and our 5 grand children during the summer months. The views are outstanding from both front and back of the house. To observe the numerous birds that fly above and those that roam around the property is seeing nature at its best; for example we have a resident owl that claims the back yard as his/her territory. You may hear it at night or early mornings go cuckoo, cuckoo... We often see hawks hover overhead in search of prey. Valley Center has few street lights so on clear moonless nights, we could see countless stars and the constellations. We love the rural setting but close to the city atmosphere. We have fresh clean air to breath. The people of Valley Center are very friendly and the town is known for its small town charm.
