Peaceful property with a great front porch and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Southern California and this property was right down the street from our family in Valley Center. The property was perfect with enough rooms/beds to sleep 6 comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked with all the supplies we needed to cook. I was also grateful for the washer and dryer. All around great place to stay.

Peaceful and Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Ranch house very much. House is great and spacious and so is the yard. We were in need of nothing and everything was easy to get to when you become familiar with the area. The dogs had a blast with the open space and tuckered out with so much exploring to do :) I would definitely stay here again!

Feels like going home

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this gorgeous ranch justice. The ranch feels like home; it feels like visiting your grandmothers house for the holidays. It is so calm and inviting here. We have a chaotic San Diego lifestyle so 3 days here is exactly what we needed to reset. The back yard not only has gorgeous peacocks but rosemary bushes galore. The smell of rosemary engulfing the back yard is super refreshing.

The town of Valley Center is also super cute and friendly. Overall, this spacious ranch was a perfect fit for us.

My sisters and our mother had a great time! We enjoyed the ranch house, it was very peaceful and inviting. The space was perfect for us. The house was a bit dusty when we arrived, but that was not stopping us from having a great time. Our recommendation for the owners is to provide more pots with lids and a blender; but that's us, we love to cook. We made it work. The king bed in the master bedroom made a lot of noise when turning, sitting on bed(plastic mattress cover)? Maybe provide exiting instructions; reminders, where to put dirty sheets, towels etc.. Overall, the house is well kept, pleasant,we enjoyed it and I would definitely return and recommend this ranch house. Actually looking at dates to rent again :-) Thank you for sharing your house!!

Wonderful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing Christmas at the ranch house. Plenty of room for our big family and dogs to spend a relaxing weekend. We cooked and ate a ton of food, played card and board games, football in the large front yard and relaxed next to the fire, all around great time. Some of us had a tough time with no WiFi and could have used a few more baking pans but it didn't effect our love of the place. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the busy city and relax with plenty of room for dogs to run around all day long! Thanks so much Tom!
