About Tom Fife

We love this place! If you see a peacock encourage it to stay! The home is perfectly placed N,S,E&W..which is said to be lucky. Enjoy our Ranch. We will have fruit trees and some crops in a few years and we hope to make it a wonderful spot for events like weddings. Come on and spend a night and then come back and see how we've grown! Enjoy!

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!

A very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I spent a very comfortable five nights at Pavo Real ranch over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were in the area to play golf at nearby Pauma Valley Country Club where we usually rent on the grounds of the club. We waited too long to book this year and had to go elsewhere. The ranch was a lucky find - only 10 minutes away and really all the amenities we needed. The house has a rustic look with appropriate furnishings and decoration and was spotless, the kitchen well-stocked with staples, and the three bedrooms very comfortable. The climate control was perfect. The bathrooms could use some updating but perfectly fine. Some of the window blinds could use replacing and the windows can be a bit difficult to open but these are very minor issues. The owner, Tom Fife, was incredibly easy to work with and responded very quickly to emails and texts before and during our stay. All and all a very good experience.

All the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

Our son was getting married at his fiance's childhood ranch, which was about 2 1/2 hours from our home. I found the Woods Valley home on VRBO while looking for a 3 bedroom 2 bath home in the Valley Center area. It ended up being just what we needed. We had 3 families staying there with plenty of room to stay out of each other's way. My daughter and her husband and 2 month old baby in one room, another daughter had her own room, my husband and I had the master, and another daughter and her husband with their 2 children stayed in their trailer with hookups. The porch was wonderful to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine watching the sunset at night. Very peaceful neighborhood.

Fabulous house in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay in Pavo Ranch. The house was exactly what we were looking for, clean, well equipped with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. No need for wifi we were too busy looking at the rabbits and peacocks!
