We loved the pool and deck area! There was sufficient space & parking for our party of 9 (3 kids).

  • 5 of 5

The pool and deck area was great! The view is beautiful. There were pool toys and floaties for kids, plenty of chairs, and eating by the pool was enjoyable. There was sufficient space for our party of 9 (3 kids), with one sleeping on a blow-up mattress. The kitchen area was limited for a group of our size, but fine for breakfast or other meals if you use the patio grill. They had a good supply of dishes. There are a couple of good restaurants within a couple of miles, and easy access to a decent grocery store. Margaret and Aarne were welcoming and easy to work with. Overall it was a great accommodation for our group!

Perfect for an extended family with grand children

  • 5 of 5

Margaret and Arnold have a beautiful home in a great location. They are wonderful hosts.

The home was centrally located for what we wanted to visit in the LA San Diego area. It is about an hours drive to Disneyland to the north and the various attractions in San Diego to the south. It is also about 10 miles from the beach in Oceanside.

There was plenty of room for my family of 10. 7 adults and 3 grand children with 4 bedrooms and a great room with a fold out coach.

The kitchen is right off the patio and pool. We cooked our evening meals there and enjoyed them on the patio next to the pool.

The pool was a big hit with everyone. We spent several hours in it every evening after our days activities around the area. My 4 year old grandson didn't want to leave. He now wants a pool in his backyard.

We had a wonderful time and will stay here again if my family returns to the area for another vacation.

Best vacation home that a large family wanting to visit CA could wish for.

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling with kids, this is the place you want. Margaret and Aarne were wonderfully welcoming hosts and their home was fantastic. The pool and hot tub were spectacular, as was the view from the deck. We spent most of our downtime out there. The location was perfect and most attractions were easily within driving distance (remember, there is traffic in CA!). Thank you so much! We would love to come back.

Exactly what we were looking for...Peaceful setting with beautiful scenic views.

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this house was perfect for us. We had 5 adults and 4 children and never felt cramped. My wife and I stayed in the private (attached) apartment overlooking the pool and our adult children and their kids stayed in the rest of the house. The relaxing pool/hot tub area with beautiful vista views was exactly what we wanted after visiting the nearby attractions. The gracious hosts/owners (Margaret and Aarne) were close by and ready to assist if required but never intruded on our privacy. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you and your family, Ron, for staying at our place and writing such a nice review. We appreciated your mentioning that, while we live in another section of the large property, we don't intrude on our guests unless asked for something. Much thanks also for leaving everything in such good order, a breeze to get things ready for the incoming family. We're happy you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to welcoming you back some day.
