About sonia and hugh

Hugh is 72 years old and retired. Sonia was born and raised in the Philippines and came to the States since 1975. Sonia just recently retired and is 63 years old.

Hugh and I have just celebrated our 35 years wedding anniversary this Dec. 18. We have a son, but he lives in Michigan.

Sonia's mom Alicia lives in the home with them and she is 82 years old. You'll see her doing her daily walks within the property when the weather is nice.

Hugh and I have been everywhere in the world. We love meeting people and getting to experience other cultures. In fact, we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast in 1981, during our first trip as a couple.

sonia and hugh purchased this apartment in 2012

Why sonia and hugh chose Country Club

We came upon this property as a potential for my big family to live close to each other. This property is located in an acre, allowing us a lot of privacy and also enough room to plant fruit trees and a small garden. This has a countryside setting and yet close to city amenities. The back of the property is pure country and the front of the property is very close to city amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is located on top of a hill so you get the panoramic views of the mountain ranges, hills and valleys. It's a very good area to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset and the sounds of birds.

Peaceful, tranquil setting close to beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Sonia and Hugh are the most gracious and generous hosts! They will assist you in every regard. This is a secluded, quiet apartment in Escondido; if you are looking for the "wild beach scene" this is not for you. But if you want calm and quiet surroundings consider coming here. It's only a 15 - 20 minute drive to Oceanside beaches. It was the perfect place for us and we look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Bob and Karen and their 2 poodles stayed with us for a month while vacationing in the San Diego area. We had some nice visits with them and it was a pleasure to have them as our guests. The 2 dogs are so cute and were no trouble at all. They felt right at home after a couple of days. They kept the apartment very clean and tidied up after they left. Would love to have them back again next year. We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for the very good review. Hugh and Sonia

A lovely, quiet, and beautiful place to be. Sonia and Hugh were such gracious hosts, making sure we were comfortable. The accommodations were spacious, extremely clean, and came with everything one needs in the “home away from home”. Will definitely return to this spot

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

The owners,Hugh and Sonia are awesome! We had our golf clubs shipped to their house and they brought them inside and put them in our house a few days prior to us arriving. Very friendly and down to earth couple! House is very clean and quiet area, centrally located for most golf courses in Escondido. Our friend got a hole-in-one on the Reidy Creek golf course #18. Totally fabulous trip !!!!!!!!!

Beautiful home & Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here with another couple while we were in town visiting and we loved our stay!! This location is gorgeous. Very private and quiet but close enough to plenty of stores if you have to run and grab a few items. Sonia and Hugh were amazing host and always made sure we had everything we needed. We plan on staying here again next year when we are in town!

Great place at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

Clean, modern, well-equipped rental apartment. All you need is your own food. Luckily, there is shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Located close to two freeways makes it easy to zip north/south and east/west. The on-site owners are friendly and helpful while giving you maximum privacy. We would stay there again.
