About Denise DiGiuro

We live in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. We were born and raised here and it is very difficult to move 2000 plus miles from our family, friends and 6 children. Therefore, we decided, to make this location our 'home away from home!'

Denise DiGiuro purchased this condo in 2014

Why Denise DiGiuro chose San Diego

We chose to purchase a condo in beautiful Rancho Bernardo because the scenery and weather in California is 200% nicer than the scenery and weather in Chicago, Illinois, where we reside! If we didn't have 6 children who are not willing to re-locate to California, we would live here permanently!!!

What makes this condo unique

We have been 'vacation home shopping' for the past 6 years. Our main focus was to find a vacation home near the beach and ocean in an area that offers warm weather and was near a big city. We viewed properties in Florida from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale, to Miami, to Sarasota and all the way to the panhandle in Panama City Beach. We were very picky, and each place we considered, we found fault with! We moved our search to the San Diego area, and explained to our realtor our needs.....She showed us several properties, and when we found this condo in Masters Hill, we knew the moment we walked out the door, that this would become our vacation home!

Lovely Condo in Beautiful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of December 2017 making ourselves at home in Denise DiGiuro's well-appointed Rancho Bernardo condo while visiting family in San Diego. The condo is cozy and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and even an electric grill on the balcony for the times we wanted to cook. When we didn't, we went to one of the dozens of restaurants located an easy five to 10 minutes getting on the freeway. We loved taking early morning walks around the neighborhood and coming back to the gated security and quiet of Masters Hill. It was winter so we did not take advantage of the beach equipment Denise provides, but we did enjoy walking on the beaches at LaJolla and Coronado. We also explored Balboa Park, Queen Califia's Magical Circle at Kit Carson Park in Escondido, Bernardo Winery just 10 minutes away, the Christmas Boat Parade in San Diego Harbor, Christmas shopped at Westfield Mall at Escondido 15 minutes away. We even took a couple of days and flew down to Cabo since we had never been. The location of Denise's condo is convenient to so many great things to do around San Diego. Our time in Rancho Bernardo was delightful because Denise was accommodating in every way!

Better Than Advertized

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there for three months in early 2017 and owner the Denise DiGiuro was unbelievably helpful and cooperative. Every minor question we'd have she ended up solving very easily. The views, the furniture, the kitchen with its accompanying dishes, pots, pans, and cookware were all top notch..Even though the condo was most secluded we were still were within 2 -3 miles of Costco, Trader Joe's, Albertson's, Von's, Sprouts, and Barro'n's' markets...On top to that there are numerous great restaurants within the 2-3 mile radius as well..Steaks and Sea Food,, Mexican, Italian, Thai, India, and Chinese were all close by. None of the markets nor restaurants required getting on the Freeway.

We ended up liking the condo complex so much that we ended up buying a 3 bedroom in the same building for our future winter visits. We highly recommend this property and it's owner Denise DiGiuro.

Great Condo in Heart of Rancho Bernardo

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but great things to say about this condo and the owner Denise. It is very comfortably furnished and extremely well-equipped. Denise could not have been more accommodating, always available to answer any question and granting every request. We are locals who rented for 2 months because we are between houses, so it worked out perfectly for us -- a nice getaway in our own neighborhood without the responsibility of home ownership at a very reasonable price. (The other reviewers have explained all the amenities of the condo and the area) We recommend this place for any couple who wants a relaxing, worry-free stay in the most beautiful and livable city in the world!

Enchanting Masters Hill Condo

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Denise's beautiful Masters Hill Condo. The beauty both inside and out far exceeded any VRBO I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in dozens of nice places around the state.

The tasteful lovely decorations and comfortable furnishings, fully supplied kitchen for those liking to cook as I do, bikes, beach gear, pool towels for the 3 pools which I enjoyed daily, the Masters Hill complex itself, the warm welcoming and timely responsiveness of dear hosts, the super cleanliness (I have allergies and am very sensitive) and the unforgettable peaceful magical morning tea on deck overlooking the golf course, palm trees and mountains.

The location is fabulous...5 minutes from Trader Joes, great shopping, restaurants, movies, walking paths (Lucido Park), 22 minutes across to the coast to Del Mar and La Jolla and 10 minutes to Rancho Bernardo Winery, a fabulous locale for wine tasting, the best restaurant (Cafe Merlot), weekly Sunday afternoon music, Friday morning farmers market, art walks and many other special events.

To give you an idea just how enchanting and life changing my time at Denise's condo was - having just retired, I've decided to relocate to Bernardo Heights and am looking at obtaining a Masters Hill Condo!

Very nice Condo with great views and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

A perfect condo for +55 people with great views of the golf course from the living room window. It was just as the ad said it was and we totally enjoyed our 4 month stay. We used the elevator just about every day to take us from the garage to within steps of the front door. We both have a mild arthritis problem so the elevator came in handy. The condo has a great view, is well equipped and comes with 2 bikes, 2 beach chairs and more stuff for the beach. The gated community is super quiet and well maintained with lots of greenery, flowers and mature trees.

I would recommend it to family and friends. The price was right and the owners were great. We would definitely stay there again. David
