Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA, USA:
Our family loves the tranquility of the countryside, and the beauty and fun of the California beaches. This property gives us the best of both worlds. My husband and I love to jog. We wake up each morning, attach Nala, our Labradoodle to her leash and off we go in search of new trails that our neighborhood has to offer, with horses that sometimes like to trot alongside of us. Sometimes we will pack up the car with our kids and rush to the beach that's only ten minutes away to build sandcastles, swim or boogie board, and grab an ice cream at the Del Mar Plaza before we head home. This property has something for everyone. If you want to just relax, set your cell phone off and walk or explore the trails in the area, our guests can do that. If you want to venture out and visit the spa, go golfing during the day, or dancing at night, we are walking distance from the Grand Del Mar. Our property is large, so children have a lot of grassy area to play and run around.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
One of my family's favorite places on earth is Italy. The first time I saw my home, walking through and around the gardens, with its olive trees, and the view of the valley, it reminded me of Tuscany. Throughout the day, it seems as if the valley changes personality. When the fog rolls in and hides between the houses, it suspends them in air. The sunset turns the sky into different colors, giving the valley a fiery effect. Now, every morning when I look at my backyard, I feel like I have a little bit of Tuscany tucked away in Carmel Valley, California.
