Wonderful vacation casa and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely location with a spacious casita that was light, well furnished and well stocked (even wine, fruit and cookies). While the setting is very peaceful, you are very close to the beach, etc.

Our hosts, Bill and Dana, were terrific and we felt at home, more so because they showed us so many considerations. We hope to see them again and so very much appreciate their kindness. In sum, we highly recommend this VRBO!

We originally visited in August and came back again this April. We had a wedding to attend in Escondido and it was a perfect retreat. Thank you for your hospitality!

5 star location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for several vacations and this was our best experience ever! The apartment was more than we expected. No detail was left out of this 5 star home away from home. Dana and Bill are gracious and accommodating hosts, always accessible for questions. The on site amenities are better than any hotel. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. The location is close to shopping and convenient to the beach and attractions. We are already planning our next vacation and this will be our first choice!

Peaceful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Dana were amazing hosts who made our month's stay wonderful. We enjoyed being close to Moonlight Beach and all of the restaurants around the area to choose from. Bill and Dana were very gracious in allowing us to enjoy their pool, spa, and grill whenever needed. Their property is beautiful! The hiking trails wind through beautiful scenery and seeing and feeding the horses nearby was an added treat. Bill and Dana went out of their way to welcome us with wine, cookies, and coffee. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to move in and feel at home. We will return the next time we are in the San Diego area. Kathy & Paul Donovan

Tranquil location, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We will be back! What a wonderful stay we had. Bill and Dana are very hospitable, generous, and very personable! We had all of the amenities of home and felt like we were at a "home away from home". The property is gorgeous, weather was perfect, and we even had a garage space for our vehicle! Thank you Bill & Dana for a wonderful stay!

Excellent respite from my desert home

  • 5 of 5

The owners Bill & Dana were very gracious hosts and provided fantastic hospitality. The Carriage house could not have been better. Top-notch spotless accommodations. This coupled with the attractive estate grounds with all the amenities, made for an enjoyable and relaxing visit. Highly recommended.
