Down-home place to stay
The view is fantastic, in a quiet, peaceful setting. The gift of organic produce was such a welcoming, homey touch.
So glad you enjoyed the space. it was a pleasure to host you. We hope you will stay with us again.
We had a great time and would definitely rebook. Karen is very kind and has a gift of hospitality.
I was in the area for a wedding, and this was the perfect place to stay with my dogs. The fresh organic produce, along with other essentials, was delicious and much appreciated. House and bed were comfortable and well kept. I would stay here again. Thanks, Karen and Colin!
It was a pleasure to host you and so glad you were comfortable and happy! Thank you for treating our home as if it was yours.
Look forward to your staying with us again,

Charming & Quiet
Our entire stay was lovely throughout. We were looking for a quiet place to spend New Year's eve, away from all the hustle and bustle of the big city, and this place was just that and more. The home is charming and extremely comfortable for 8 adults and two dogs as we never felt crowded in any single room. We had some trouble with the wifi connection but it was quickly resolved with a single phone call to the home owner. This is an ideal place for nature lovers, bicyclist and hikers. A big thank you to the owners for opening their home to us. We look forward to another visit sometime in the near the future.
Wonderful to have you! Glad you enjoyed. Happy New Year!
A cycling week at Valley Center VRBO 509798
Booked on short (8 hour) notice, owner very accommodating and responsive. Property is a bungalow type residence in rural area 15 miles NE of Escondido. Paved road access to high country location, agricultural area with fruit trees and greenhouse operations. Quiet, but close enough to I-15 for easy access to services etc. We spent most days road biking on various nearby mountain and coast roads. Excellent paved roads, bike lanes on many roads, excellent place to bike. Particularly spectacular sunsets from west deck and of course, the San Diego area has the best weather in North America, a welcome respite from Alberta winter. Highly recommended.
Was lovely to host you Brian. Happy to hear your enjoyed our area. We look forward to hosting you again sometime.
