Very friendly and clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. Susan was very friendly and the place was very clean. The oranges are delicious and they even had grapefruit that was superb and juicy. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone. All our friends were staying in hotels for the wedding we attended, but they were all jealous of our little gem of a place.

Baseball vacation stay

The guest apartment was a very pleasant and accommodating. Perfect for our trip to visit Southern California and its many attractions. Would recommend this property on any trip to this area and would return ourselves next time we are in the area.

Quiet Castlegate

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, very comfortable apt. Large bathroom, large closet walk-in, and Susan has stocked the kitchenette with whatever you might need. Enjoyed fresh orange juice every morning. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for me and my bunny

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean, quiet, safe, and comfortable. What more could you want in a VRBO? I am a former San Diego resident and needed a place to stay in North County while attending a conference. I travel with my house rabbit and finding a place that can accommodate us both is not always easy. This little guest house was perfect for us with its full kitchen and bath. The owner was very accommodating in letting us use the main house's yard space, allowing my best friend to stay the night, and in letting me check out late. One of the reasons I choose VRBO over hotels is that you get to meet interesting people and have a more authentic experience. The owners are very friendly and the guest house is nicely appointed. I'd stay here again and highly recommend it to others.

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
