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 Diego County

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.

such a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot stop talking about how wonderful this home is. its a diamond in the rough. with all the activities we had going on, we all looked forward to get back to the house and relaxing even the grandchildren. My 13 yr old grandson came racing from the pier to inform us that there are baby swans in the lake so that was our daily entertainment. Until we took the paddle board and paddle boat out and discovered the black swans.... that was over the top enjoyment to see there excitement over nature i have to admit i was right there with them.

The house has EVERYTHING you can think of... the beds are sooooo comfortable.....Tranquility........Peaceful......

I love the fact its animal friendly with no evidence of prior animals except for clean stowed bowls. This will definitely be my go to place for now on. Thank you Patti/ Caroline, Cheryl and Joe for your hospitality. I can see you all have put a lot of thought and love into your home.

The house was absolutely wonderful. It was so comfortable, great location, easy water access.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lake house! We had breakfast each morning on the patio with a lake view. Then we went out on paddle boards in the mornings. My four year old thought it was the best time of her life. We got to see a mommy swan with 6 babies, which was the highlight of her trip. They provide swan food to feed to the swans as well.

The house and beds were very comfortable in both rooms. There's a roll-away bed in the second bedroom if needed. The house was spacious and everything worked well.

We also enjoyed the kitchen. Everything we needed was there except the food. They even had dog food bowls for if you've brought your pup with you.

The pictures don't do this place justice. We'll definitely stay again. Some friends came by and asked for the listing they were so impressed. Really enjoyable stay.

The condo was large and very accommodating. The lake vista was gorgeous and peaceful with lots of birds. We would certainly return to this rental if ever we are back in the area.
