I had the perfect weekend.

  • 4 of 5

I had an amazing weekend at San Sebastian, celebrating my bachlorette. The house was beautiful. Even though it only slept 12, the manager Chris and owner Rick were quick to buy us tons of really comfy mattresses from Costco, and extra pillows, and blankets. The house was the perfect size for our 18 girls, with plenty of space for the extra mattresses. The backyard and patio area were great. It was the perfect setting for my bridal shower during the day. We were disappointed that the hot tub and pool could not be heated at the same time. The pool never heated up much, so we just stuck with the one hot tub. There were 2 hot tubs, but only one could be heated up at a time.

I was floored with the service that Rick provided. He greeted me with a beautiful Orchid, congratulating me. He and Chris were very hands on. Chris made sure I had his cell phone number so I was able to text him throughout the weekend with questions. I felt very taken care of.

Amazing! Perfect layout and Crazy Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at The Madrid was phenomenal. Obviously, the photos look amazing, but when we arrived, the place felt even better than I expected. A number of couples flew in from across the country to celebrate my birthday, and the flow of the house is perfect for a large group celebration. It basically feels like a resort without any other guests. The casitas (three of them dotted around the pool!) are great for giving people a sense of separation, while still being close to the action.

And of course the pool... This was the reason the place jumped out at me to begin with, but actually spending a week here was amazing. I've never seen a better-designed pool. The landscaping and multi-layers make it feel like a secluded paradise and the swim-up bar connects to the pool and hot tub, making it possible for multiple groups of people to eat/drink/hang out with everyone at the same time. Even if some of the people would rather not be in the pool, they can hang under the grass hut and still feel like they're right in the middle of everything. It's kind of the perfect place to set up a lunch board or serve pina coladas straight from the blender while chatting with anyone in the pool & hot tub at the same time.

Chris was really helpful and was genuinely excited about making sure we had a great time. He's easy-going and you can tell he's up for trying to accommodate in any way that he can. The house is also stocked with plenty of extra towels, sheets, fridges (I think there are upwards of 6 fridges around the property, including multiple wine fridges, indoor and out), TV's, and centrally-wired speakers around the property.

Our group has stayed in many vacation houses around the world, but this was the best experience by far. I'm looking forward to coming back!

Amazing vacation getaway/service from Chris

  • 5 of 5

My husband had the best 40th birthday party at the Madrid. The team at Laguna Seca is professional and accommodating. Communication was prompt and helpful throughout the process of booking and staying. Chris went above and beyond to make sure our stay was memorable and outstanding. We look forward to our next stay at the Madrid!!

Beautiful & HUGE !!!

  • 5 of 5

We arranged to have this house in addition to "The Cordoba" for our wedding on 6/11/16. The main use for this estate was the rehearsal dinner and sleeping arrangements for our family from out of town. Everyone LOVED this house! Our grandparents had access to the additional kitchen and living area in the back and loved it. We had to go through the house a few times just to remember how to get to everyone's room since you can get lost in his place! The sound system was great and was used a bunch during the stay. My mother in law keeps begging for us to arrange a trip back to The Madrid! Thank you so much for a great and memorable weekend! We will def be back!

Amazing Estate and Even More Amazing Service from Chris

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Madrid Estate for the week of Stagecoach and it was an absolute blast. Our group enjoyed the house more than we did the concert/event. The house was so large and spacious and easily accommodated our group of 20. We probably even had room for a few more. The sound system in the house is awesome and we were able to play all of our favorite songs all week. The pool was amazing and so much fun to hang around during the day and there was also plenty of space in the yard/tennis courts for even more fun activities. We were able to heat the spa as well without any additional cost, which most other rentals charge.

The rooms were well kept and supplied with fresh linens and toilet paper. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, pots, pans, and anything else we needed to cook our own meals and have food out for the gatherings during the day. Parking was very convenient in both the large garage and driveway area and easily allowed us to accommodate all of our guests that brought cars. Transportation to and from the event was also very easy and seamless.

Regarding the service, Chris and his team were absolutely amazing. They provided us with everything we needed and if there was something that we did not have they would get it for us. The entire process was so easy that we already want to book again for next year. Chris is an amazing host and we are so gracious that he and his team allowed us to stay with our group. We will be back for many, many more years to come!!!

Good property, needs a little work to be great

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice property. We spent a week there for a family gathering. There were 13 of us (4 family units). There was plenty of room and everyone had comfortable accommodations as well as the ability to have privacy. The outdoor pool area was great for both adults and kids. The pool has shallow areas and a shelf for small children, but also plenty of adult areas including the hot tub.

The property is definitely showing wear from being a rental property. Based upon the dates on other reviews, the property has been rented now for close to 2 years and it shows. The walls could use some paint and there are lots of little things which need attention. Individually they are not big deals, but when you combine them, it diminished our experience.

We are frequent renters from both VRBO and Homeaway, and almost every house we have rented has a notebook which explains how to operate all of the systems and appliances in house. Given the size of this house, there are lots of things which could use explaining (appliances, pool controls, audio/video systems, security gates, garage doors, etc.). There is no documentation for anything. Our group is technologically savvy, and we had issues the entire week with the televisions located around the property. The Sonos system, which is connected to a Crestron system, was not intuitive and didn't work like the Sonos systems many of have used recently.

All in all, we really enjoyed our time at this nice property, but it very easily could have been a lot better.

Owner's Response: Hello Robin and thank you for your constructive criticism after your stay at our home. These comments really help us keep up with maintenance of our home as well as to better ourselves and the experience we wish to share with families such as yours. As you can imagine we work very hard to ensure our renters enjoy their stay at our home and I wanted to let you know we have since corrected your noted discrepancies. We have since painted the interior of our home, replaced the damaged carpet, and created a user friendly "Arrival guide" for our renters. Complete with contact numbers, local attractions, and past renter notes.The Custom Crestron system can be confusing at times and have added an additional member to our team to be on call for any AV issue that might arise during your stay. We hope that the refund and credit to a future stay given to you from us will encourage you to come back to see how much we have improved. Once again thank you and we hope to see you soon!
