About Patti, Caroline, Cheryl and Joe

Our family vacation home. The on-site owners are long time San Marcos residents and live close by. They are available for questions or assistance with the property and can provide restaurant and hiking tips.

I'm a San Francisco based Realtor, golf addict, foodie & wine lover. We've partnered up with our in-laws who live at the lake in this joint purchase which is our 2nd home.

Patti, Caroline, Cheryl and Joe purchased this house in 2014

Why Patti, Caroline, Cheryl and Joe chose San Marcos

This is our get away from the sometimes hectic, busy S.F. Bay Area. We've always wanted a mid-century home to decorate & renovate with modern finishes that are also dog friendly. We love golfing & water sports which makes this location the perfect spot to get away from it all with our Labradoodle, Coco & Greyhound mix, Carson. We know you will enjoy our lake side home & all the great offerings as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

What is special about this location is the St. Mark's Golf Course/Club is right around the corner. The area attractions are diverse ranging from hip restaurants, fun shopping, beach access within 20 minutes & golf courses galore including La Costa.

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property looked just like the pictures. That isn't always the case. This place is well cared for with all the little extras you need (towels, laundry supplies, games, books etc). The beds were very comfortable and the patio was our favourite spot overlooking the boats and the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and the whole place was very clean. We met the owner Joe and he was very helpful answering our questions about the area. This will be a place we rent again. We enjoyed our stay but loved the area and the par 71 golf course only two blocks away! Many thanks to Joe and Patti for the hospitality.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas week here this year. This was our second time here and hopefully won't be our last. We don't know why anyone would stay at the nearby Lake House Hotel when they could stay at Patti's and team's place. Worth every penny.

Lovely location

We enjoyed our stay very much. The beds were extremely comfortable and the home had everything we could possibly need. Grocery shopping is very close by. Lake San Marcos is a wonderful community. The owners were very responsive.
