Very neglected property and poorly represented discription.
I have never written a review or taken a survey, but after our stay in Southern California I felt I had to. I am not looking for any refund or the other party to pay because that is not benificial to the community as a whole. Just saying, Renters beware!
This is the third VRBO I have rented, by far the worst represented. I wanted a place my kids and grandkids could swim and play at over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Very disappointed the pool was not heated and the hot tub heater was out of commission. They did not say the pool was heated or not heated, nor did they mention the hot tub heater in the VRBO site. In there booklet at the house they did mention this and it would be a polar plunge if used not in the summer months. Why would someone rent a place with a pool in November in sunny southern California if it is only a seasonal pool! It was in the high 80's to the low 90's the first six days we were there and the pool temperature did not change a degree. The booklet also mentioned they have a pool service that cleans the pool weekly during the summer months thus why it was dirty when we arrived. There was noticeable rodent droppings in and around the pool with debris on the bottom. The pool side pergola lounge chair cushions were filthy. The creekside bar needs a good cleaning and the creek had garbage in it and a oil sheen, did not allow the grandkids down their. The extremely private back yard would be even better if the fence between them and the neighbors was finished. The outdoor games they mentioned; croquet, all mallots broken, putting green has no putter and the green needs a good cleaning, did not find the bean bags for cornhole game and there were rodent dropings on the boards for it. One of the chairs on the patio has duct tape on the seat to fix a big hole in it.
They did not mention that she boards and trains dogs on VRBO site but in the booklet they do. This alone is not an issue, but the dog feces piles in the back yard is.
The reviews mentioned how clean the place was. There was grime, debris, dirt and dust all over. The pillows in the master bedroom should have been thrown out and replaced years ago. The oven was dirty, spare bathroom sink clogged and all the games the kids and my wife played with are missing critical pieces. The indoor/outdoor cat who comes and goes was very nice but she needs deworming.
Our pool and hot tub have never been heated for any renters as stated in our VRBO description. We have never had guests unhappy here. I’m sorry your stay was not what you wanted. Our home is professionally cleaned for each guest. Very Sincerely,
Home to Remember
Thank you for opening your home. We had a great stay and would stay again.
Very clean inside
It was definitely a fun home. The backyard was perfect for kids and we really enjoyed our stay there. Everything was very clean and spacious.
Great home for a family vacation
Every summer we take our daughter and her family on a one week family vacation. This is the second time we have rented a house through vrbo.com and it was just what we were looking for. The layout with the master at one end of the house and the other two bedrooms on the other end with the living area in the middle was ideal for our family. The pool was a cool treat, which was just what we needed after long summer days of sightseeing in San Diego. Our grandson 16 years old was in it multiple times each day.
I have to give mention to Peekaboo the resident cat, friendly kitty and I am not a cat person. One morning while it was still dark outside our son-inlaw stepped out on to the patio to have some coffee but did not bother turning any lights on, Peekaboo swatted the back of his legs with her tail, you can imagin the reaction that got. We all had a good laugh.
We have been home for a few days now and all agree that we would stay here again.
Quintessential southern CA
Great, comfortable, and clean house, we were very happy with the stay. This was our first short term rental, but it went great and we'll do it again, and if we are in that neighborhood well stay at their house again. Btw, our kids loved that a cat and chickens lived there!
Perfect kid friendly Home Base in the San Diego Area!
Just back from taking our kids (ages 40 and 42) and grand kids (ages 6 and 8) to Sea World and Legoland. What a wonderful time!!!
The house is really comfortable and lovely and was perfect for our family vacation Home Base.
We loved the pool, playing with all of the outdoor games, strolling by the vineyard and creek, and collecting eggs from the two chickens for breakfast each morning.
Maggie, the owner, gave us wonderful ideas for restaurants in the area and also gave great directions to the main activities we had looked forward to.
Both Sea World and Legoland were real winners. Our grandkids were thrilled!
We loved sitting around together talking in the evenings after really full days while the little ones played ping pong--so much fun! Really felt like being in the country but with easy access to the whole San Diego Area.
We highly recommend this property and look forward to another stay when we return to San Diego.
Thanks so much Maggie and thanks also for your delightful gift of your family wine.
