About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 20

There are hardly words to describe the sheer beauty of this six-bedroom lake-view estate. Along with this home offering a royal Escondido vacation, up to 20 lucky guests (and two dogs!) will also enjoy a large sparkling pool and hot tub in the perfectly manicured backyard.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego proper when you stay at this peaceful and serene home. Legoland is close at hand for family fun, and shops, galleries, and eateries are nearby in Escondido.

Just as stunning inside as it is out, this home is filled with upscale furnishings and plenty of space for the whole group to eat, relax, and spend quality time together.

Even the unlikeliest of chefs will offer to whip up a meal in the gourmet kitchen, which comes equipped with everything you'll need from stainless steel major appliances to a coffee grinder, French press, and Bosch double dishwasher.

Choose between two indoor dining areas, and numerous outdoor seating areas complete with a BBQ for delicious steak dinner.

Among six serene bedrooms are five queen beds, one king bed, three twin beds, and three futons, giving each of the 20 guests a wonderful place to rest each night. And with four full bathrooms and a half bath, there's no waiting in line for your morning routine.

Please keep in mind that if you bring along up to two of your dogs, there is a nightly pet fee.

More amazing amenities here include a game room with Ping-Pong and foosball tables, a huge theater room (with cable, a Blu-ray player, Apple TV, Netflix streaming, and more), WiFi, a washer and dryer, and multiple seating areas overlooking the lake.

With Lake Hodges right out your door, you can spend your sunny days boating, fishing, and otherwise enjoying the water. Twenty minutes west are sandy beach shores for surfing, beach combing, and simply relaxing in the perfect Southern California climate. South is San Diego for attractions like Sea World, Seaport Village, and Balboa Park.

Soar to new vacation heights when you book this incredible Rancho Santa Fe Lakeview Villa.

About Vacasa, CA - San Diego County Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife��s family���s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home���our team is standing by!

Rancho Santa Fe Lakeview Revies

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our family reunion celebrating my husband's and my 70th birthdays. We had five mini families within our nuclear one totaling nineteen people including nine grandchildren ranging from 22 months to 22 years.

The best thing is that we did not have to figure out what do do with down time. The pool, the game room, the decks took care of all of that.

Each family was able to have its own sleeping space. It was so nice to have a television room for little ones and a theater room for the older ones.

Kitchen was roomy plus equipped with two refrigerators, large freezer and great stove. It was nice to have four eating areas: two inside and two outside.

We all enjoyed the two decks along with their fantastic views and ample seating.

The biggest hits for my family were the pool/hot tub and the ping pong table in the game room. The pool was used anywhere from two to three times a day. The lap lane was a special bonus for our adult children who swim for exercise. Two grandsons organized a ping pong tournament lasting several evenings. In other words all enjoyed time at the villa as well as the outings we went on.

One note for future renters is to check with the local property manager with any questions regarding amenities. We were told by Vacasa that some items we needed were not provided and they were.

Megan Rose, the local agent, was great. She answered any texts promptly and was super easy to work with. She made us feel like she would do all she could to make us have a positive experience.

Most of us felt like this was the best vacation ever so a thank you to the owners for sharing it.

I liked the house and the view was beautiful. The house was kept well as well. The only problem I had, was that I was promissed an early check in, but on the day of I got an email saying that the house is not available for early check in. Because of this we had to rearrange all our plans because of them ir last minute email. The email also mentioned that usually they don't allow early checkin.

Amazing Property with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa - it comfortably accommodated 16 of us and had the most amazing views and amenities (so much so that we barely left the villa the entire stay because there was so much keeping us there). The only glitch was the wifi connection was extremely weak and not strong enough for anything except for loading some emails (without graphics).

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked the RSF villa for a reunion of college friends recently -- a wonderful venue! The theater room made for an especially great venue for watching NCAA tournament games. I was also particularly impressed by the professionalism of the Vacasa team and the seamless reservation/check-in process.
