Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment in the hills of Vista. Quiet neighborhood, private entrance, everything very clean and fresh. Susan (the property's owner) picked fresh oranges for us so we could squeeze our own juice every morning. She also provided all the amenities we needed and even drove us to the train station one morning. We were in the area for family reunions and it was great to have a quiet place to come back to in the evenings. From this location, you can travel to San Diego or Laguna where there are many events and fun places to visit. Susan was very accommodating and always texted us right away if we had questions. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again when traveling to this area. ~ Susan and Rick from Iowa City, IA

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Our innkeepers, Susan and Rich were wonderful. The Suite was perfect for

our needs, very neat and tidy. Being able to pick our own oranges for fresh juice was a special treat. We will be rebooking

next year. Thanks Susan!

Very restful and beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners provide a comfortable space to relax. Close to beaches, shopping, sightseeing, and hiking. We enjoyed some much needed "down time" in their quiet neighborhood. And spent some quality time together exploring the Main Street businesses and restaurants in Vista; as well as the beach communities. Great place!

Private quiet apartment

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We were there for 10 days. The owners were very helpful. We had fresh fruit. We were close to grocery and laundry. There are lots of places to eat. The apartment was great. It was quiet. Everything was clean and neat. We parked right outside the door of the apartment. It is a ground floor apartment which gave us easy access. We would stay there again.

Our stay was absolutely perfect! We enjoyed everything about the apartment style space we stayed in. It was plenty of room for two of us and very welcoming! Susan is a pleasure to work with as she was extremely helpful with anything we could have needed. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to enjoy California to its fullest. It was a great experience overall.
