About Darryl Larson

Welcome, we are Sandi and Darryl Larson. We hope you like and enjoy the house as much as we do. We designed and built this property with loving care. Darryl is an architect and has designed numerous homes. Sandi did all the interior design herself.

Our hope is that you enjoy this home and have a memorial stay. If you have any questions or need anything -just ask and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Darryl Larson purchased this house in 2012

Why Darryl Larson chose Ramona

We wanted country living away from the congestion of the urban suburbs, but we wanted to be close to the beach, shopping and all the convenient amenities. We loved this location with all its natural beauty and the idea that we were in a developing new wine country that is said to be the next Napa Valley. When we first saw this property, we were amazed and impressed at the inspiring vista views, huge boulder outcroppings, and stately oak trees. We build this house to utilize all these natural features.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy your first cup of coffee on the patio just outside of the Master bedroom. Take a deep breath and relax while soaking in the warm sun and the gorgeous view. Take the most luscious nap ever in the hammock nestled under the oak trees atop the boulders. Hike one of our near by mountains and take in a 360 view of the mountains to the ocean. Numerous public golf courses nearby including Mount Woodson within walking distance.

In just minutes you can be at one of our famous theme parks; Safari Park, Sea World, Legoland and Disneyland.

Spend the day at the beach or take a whale watching tour. Catalina Island is a fun 1 hour cruise.

There are endless attractions you can seek or just sit back, relax and enjoy the serenity of Boulder View.

Boulder Estate Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 stayed over for my niece's wedding at Mt Woodson Castle. It was all on one level, with different areas for entertaining, serving the wedding party a dinner and a breakfast ~ which we enjoyed on the terrace. The place is so well organized and has lovely decorations throughout. Home away from home. My niece wants to come back next year to celebrate her anniversary with some friends. Thank you so much!

Amazingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my husband and his friends to stay before our wedding. There is someone living in the studio attached to the garage, so you just have to be midful of that. But it was a great stay for them.

A lovely, beautifully appointed home that our family greatly enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was necessitated by a wedding for a son just 5 minutes away in Woodson Castle. We had planned a family reunion here to coincide with wedding. Our guests came from the east coast, California and Idaho, where we reside. Three grandchildren were amongst our guests, and they seemed also to enjoy every minute there. The beautifully equipped outdoors area in the back of the home played a key role in our events, and the weather cooperated as well. One of our adult children suggested future Thanksgiving celebrations in this home, and we would clearly consider this a great place to host any family celebration or event.

Don't hesitate to rent this unit. You will be SO pleased that you did.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family gathering prior to our 'Wedding' to renew our vows on our 50th Wedding Anniversary. There were 8 of us staying there for 2 of the 4 days, and had a total of 25 join us for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. Most of the cooking was done elsewhere, but we had 5 people working in that wonderful kitchen to get the Pot-luck dinner set up buffet style. Then we divided ourselves between three outside tables to enjoy the THANKSGIVING dinner and the company. We had 4 children for the afternoon, having great adventures and making discoveries of the outstanding grounds. For the cool evenings we used the Fire Pit and sat around making wonderful memories. Thursday evening we had plenty of room to focus on the upcoming weekend. We made the programs for the wedding and table decorations and take-home gifts for the reception. It was a sad group exiting on Friday, as we moved to the Hotel where the reception was going to be. There were several conversations going on about when we should plan the next gathering HERE. Our thanks and those of our family go out to our hosts for sharing this beautiful home with us. We'll be back!

Beautiful Property in San Diego Mountains, Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect home away from home during our week long trip to San Diego. Everyone fit comfortably in this 4 bedroom house and the office attached to the master bedroom functioned perfectly as a nursery for our 15 month old. We were able to host 3- 4 family dinners in the outdoor space, taking advantage of the grill, fire pit, and outdoor tables. The house was quiet, relaxing, and close to several wineries and the San Diego Safari Park. A great find!
