Just great

  • 5 of 5

At this location you definitely need a car but the view is spectacular and owners are very friendly. Just about a 30 minute drive from everything in San Diego and if you want to watch a beautiful sunset every night then you can get that from your balcony.

The sound of silence!

  • 5 of 5

Interior tastefully decorated with panoramic views abounding in every direction. Windows galore and how delightful to nap with the mountain breeze gently flowing upon us. It was so quiet you could hear the wings of the hawks flying above and the horses peacefully neighing below. Such sweetness! The view out the front door faces West and what can we say about the sunsets?!!! Absolutely stunning! Depending upon morning fog/clouds, we frequently got to see the skyline of downtown San Diego in the far distance. Once the sun set, the beauty continued with the night lights flickering all across the valley below. We cannot imagine a more PRIVATE setting--the residence sits on a dead-end street therefore the ONLY vehicles to visit that road belong to fellow residents. In our five day stay, we saw only 2 cars come up the road.

On the downside, WIFI was not easily attainable. We had to be outside in the courtyard to pick up any reception. Be also warned that driving up the last mile to the house at night was quite cantankerous as the area had NO LIGHTS and the road narrows that final mile to the house.

The kitchen was quaint and equipped for making most meals. The bed was exceedingly comfortable! A generous supply of pillows/blankets provided! Annetta and Robert are both very gracious hosts--quick to accommodate any reasonable needs and respectful of the need for privacy.

The room is exactly as described. It is hard to find this type of lodging in Jamul. We’d love to return!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights here and it was great. It was incredibly quiet. The homeowners were welcoming and friendly, they had some recommendations on places to visit and restaurants that was helpful. They were attentive but also gave me plenty of privacy. The view was amazing! I could see the ocean and the sunsets were so pretty!

I had everything I needed to cook light meals for myself. Several intense rain/wind storms came through and I stayed warm and cozy in the apartment. The bathroom was huge, the bed was comfortable, the internet worked well and there was more than enough channels on the TV.

I enjoyed petting the friendly dogs but if that is not for you, they had a gate available. I had a convenient place to park and a private entrance.

The map is deceiving in that it makes this place look remote. It is in a very safe and private area but also very convenient to San Diego 30 minutes away. It was no more than 15 minutes to an area with a large grocery store and Target.

I would recommend this for a couple or small family to stay in. If I ever return to the area I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alessandra. You were such a trooper going through your wilderness training in the horrible weather last week. We would love for you to come back or we might visit you in Montana as you invited us to do. Take care and all the best Annette and Robert

This little gem on a hill was the perfect amount of peace we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

My girl and we’re looking for a cute quiet get away for the 3 day weekend. We searched through all the other vacation and booking sites and I ended up on VRBO. The moment I saw the pictures of this little mountain top zen garden I was enamored. I booked it immediately halfway through the profile description and it was the best booking we’ve made this year. Annette was such a warm hostess along with Robert her husband. Their long time friends were also visiting and we all shared some heart filled laughs along with their warming hospitality. If you’re looking for somewhere quiet to go find peace, with a few trails surrounding, beautiful horses and friendly doggos with unmatched hospitality, book your stay immediately, you will not regret it. Thanks guys for such a magical weekend!

PS if you happen to see the only bad review, I hope you think it’s as ridiculous as I did and enjoy a good laugh. This place is wonderful and folks that are looking to be high maintenance or demanding instead of enjoying your stay, might want try the middle of the ocean instead. Cheers and have a wonderful time.

Perfect getaway spot with great views and friendly folks

  • 5 of 5

Overly impressed with my stay at this location. Upon arrival we were greeted by Robert and Annette with hospitality you don't often find.

The inside of the house was nicely decorated and had everything I could have needed. The view on the patio was absolutely amazing and makes you completely forget you're just outside the city.

My son and I were able to pet the horses on the property and there were trails to go on a hike. There were also tons of toys that were open to my son to play with.

I couldn't be happier with my stay in Jamul. Thanks for the great trip.
