Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have to admit, when I first read the reviews I was pretty apprehensive and it took awhile for me to go ahead and make the booking. I am SO glad we did!

We had planned a small reunion with 3 couples, 3 singles, and 3 kids (6 months & 3yo). The house easily accommodated all of us, and it was spacious enough that no one was bumping into each other, everyone had a place to sit and eat, and the kids could have their own space to play. The house itself was beautiful. Everything was up to date, with the exception of one room which was a work in progress, but it worked great for the people who stayed in there. There was nothing missing from the house that we needed. The kitchen & bathrooms were stocked. (I don't even want to talk about the master bathroom... It was so beautiful that I've been trying to convince my husband to tear ours out and recreate that exact set up) I didn't realize how necessary the pool would be, but my 3yo spent most of everyday playing in there, and thanks to all the pool toys and flotation devices we were able to open the pool and just let her jump in. In the evenings we took advantage of the hot tub, fire pit, and the view of the city below from inside the pool. The owner, Kevin, was quick with his correspondence and he was genuinely willing to help with anything that we needed. The list goes on and on. We had stayed in 5 places during our time in California, and this house was the clear winner. My daughter cried when we left.

I think the only thing that was a bit of a nuisance was the dishwasher. You had to jiggle it to get it to fully close. Other than that, we have no complaints.

If the opportunity presented itself we would love to stay here again.

Impressive amenities at this property

  • 4 of 5

The pool, hot tub and putting green received a lot of attention during the day. The fire pit (awesome) and indoor pool table received attention from both adults and kids in the evening during our stay.

Wonderful view in a private setting

  • 4 of 5

The website correctly depicted the house and the amenities and Kevin and his property manager were very responsive to our calls and emails. The kitchen, great room and patio were perfect for a group of 10. We would not hesitate to rent here again if we are back in Vista.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We have been home from vacation for three weeks, and our kids are still asking when we can go back to the "California Mansion"! While everything about the home is not perfect, our experience was and that is why I happily give this property five stars. Our kids loved playing in the pool, on the slide and in the hot tub. The pool table, putting green and basketball hoop were also a big hit. We were in CA for Spring Break to attend a cousin's baptism. We had everyone from the baptism over at the house afterward and it easily accommodated the whole family. The bedrooms are spacious and beds were comfortable. My husband enjoyed grilling on the BBQ and I enjoyed having a washer and dryer to wash all the swimming suits before coming home. The view/sunsets were also stunning. Checking in/out and all instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The home was not cleaned before we arrived due to a miscommunication, but the previous occupants left it so nice we couldn't even tell. We discovered the error when we realized the sheets weren't on the beds (even though they were made). Jennifer quickly helped to rectify the situation, taking all the sheets to the laundry mat. She also ensured that we had anything else we needed during the rest of our stay. One word of caution. The stairs in the home are a little challenging for older folks. Our mother has a bad hip and almost fell going down to the lower level. There aren't a lot of stairs, but they are slightly steep and the railing doesn't go all the way down. The other set of stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms has a "half step" that even I forgot about sometimes. While in CA we also went to LEGOLAND (abt 15-20 mins. away) and the Ocean Side Pier and beach (about 20-25 mins). I would highly recommend Ruby's Diner at the end of the pier. The food was fabulous and it was the perfect CA experience that was unique and memorable. Overall loved staying in this home and hope to go back some day!

Perfect Stay, in an Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay! We liked the fact that we could wake up every morning and enjoy the jacuzzi, and make breakfast looking at our amazing view. The house is very spacious, and we'll laid out. We ended up having a get together on one of the days that was a great success because there was so much for everyone to do, swimming, playing pool, jacuzzi, sitting around the fire pit, the kids even had a playset to enjoy. All of the attendees couldn't stop taking selfies from the pool area. The heating and cooling are a little cumbersome at times, but we did find that keeping the blinds and curtains closed helped keep it managable. Would love to come back some day!
