About Tim Litchfield

I have been in North County San Diego for 17 years. I moved from NY to the west coast in 1991

Tim Litchfield purchased this estate in 2009

Why Tim Litchfield chose San Diego County

When I saw this property I put in a full price offer on the spot. It's got lots of beautiful Mexican tile, an open kitchen plan and is really comfortable and peaceful. 3/4 of an acre, 50 palm trees and I have built a beautiful vegetable garden and planted 10 new fruit trees.

What makes this estate unique

I have a patio, deck and firepit area off the rear of the house. It's great for social gatherings. There is ample space outside with 3/4 of an acre. This is a custom home, not a tract house.

Owner's Response: Hi, You have to press the control buttons on the top of the door of the dishwasher before you close it then when you close it it will start. I'm sorry you had difficulty with the dishwasher.I will provide clear directions on how to operate the dishwasher. I'm glad you had a nice day. Thanks, Tim

Great Place with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

Overall, This house was great. I am the leader of a youth group, and we stayed here with a good group of teens, and there was lots of room indoors and out for all of us to relax, play, eat, and have fun. The location is nice, as it's not too far from the beach and other attractions, yet its far enough away to be nice and quiet as well. If anything, the place could easily house more than the 12 that's listed. If you bring a few air mattresses and use the pull out couch, there is plenty of room for what I would say up to 20, though it would get a bit crazy with those numbers.

I know that all of us who stayed here thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and would come back!

Owner's Response: Hi Philip, It was great having you and your youth group. I was a little worried at first with the number of teenagers in your group and how the house would be treated. I was impressed to see that after you departed the house was practically in better shape than before you arrived. I really appreciated that and great job on mentoring your youths! Thanks, Tim

Spacious. Plenty of room to spread out. Could visit with our whole group or have quiet time by ourselves. Conveniently located for our needs. Quiet away from the hustle and bustle of life. Loved it.

Great Experience at Vista Home

  • 5 of 5

Tim was prompt in responding to messages and made coordinating arrival and getting access to the house easy and convenient.

House was clean, well stocked with kitchenware, and was a great place to stay for a weekend in Southern California. House was located close by to grocery stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here to others visiting the area.
