About the property

3 Bedrooms 4 Bathrooms Sleeps 6

Our house is absolutely amazing. So excited, we just installed SOLAR HEATING for our pool. The view over the lake is breathtaking and from the west you have the beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. We are centrally located in San Diego County so it is easy access to all the great destinations. Disneyland can be a day trip about 1 hr 20 minutes away. World famous Safari Park is 15 minutes away. You can reach the ocean beaches in 20 minutes. We are close to the city of San Diego but yet very secluded and can maintain our privacy. The house is awesome and has a gourmet kitchen with lots of space and a very large island to gather friends with wine and cooking. Outdoors there is a large gas barbecue next to the spa and salt water infinity swimming pool that is 8 feet deep. NOW IT IS SOLAR HEATED!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house and all the amenities were incredible! Gale and Michel were extremely helpful, thorough and generous with their beautiful home. Our family had one of the best vacations sitting around the pool, watching the sunrise and eating on the patio. I couldn't say enough good things about this house, it was PERFECT!!!!!

Nice, Home, Spectacular Views...Wish everything worked!

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for wonderful views and a quiet location, this house has both. The house is spacious, and light with balconies surrounding it. The accommodations are very nice but the owners need to step on a few fronts. The spa was not usable for 75% of our stay as the temperature never got higher than 100 deg F, and since the temperature outdoors was in the high 40's F, it cooled to body temperature or below once the cover was off. Not comfortable for hanging out for long periods. Owner was responsive but until our last day was unable to get the spa to a comfortable (104) temperature for hanging out. Interior furnishings are nice but there is only a small dining table for 4 and 4 chairs so if you have 6 people (as the house is designed for…3 bedrooms) it’s not conducive to a comfortable meal. The bedrooms are nice but there was no space in the MBR for our clothes, so we were living out of suitcases for 4 days. In addition, there are no rugs on the MBR floor, so we had to take off shoes and tiptoe to avoid making noise for the people staying in the bedroom below us on the lower level. For the cleaning fee assessed, the floors and pots & pans could have been cleaner. The house is central for hiking (but not for San Diego proper) and that view makes up for a lot (but not everything - so definitely question the owners about the working condition of the Spa, BBQ, etc.)

The view from this home is phenomenal and the house is truly lovely and functional too. You feel like you're in the middle of nowhere but you are actually 20 minutes from markets and restaurants and the beach. The only two things to know before booking is that the pool is not heated, and that the owners stay on the property in their RV when renting. We almost never saw them, but if you are wanting total privacy, this should be considered.

Our home with its awesome views is located on the north side of San Diego. You have the feeling of being in the country but you are actually very close to the city and everything it has to offer. San Diego County offers so much therefore there is something for everyone. The world famous Safari Park is less than 15 minutes away. Legoland is 20 miles away. You can reach several beautiful ocean beaches in 20 minutes. In mid July the Del Mar racing season begins and is only 20 minutes away where the surf meets the turf. It runs until early September.

Another popular destination is Disneyland as a day trip which is one & one half hour drive away. A must see is Balboa Park with its many museums, botanical garden, Old Globe Theater and the San Diego Zool. Since you are downtown you should also go to Seaport Village on the harbor with its many wonderful restaurants and shops. Stroll along the water. You could also visit the Midway ship museum, the Star of India, and much more.

If you like wine tasting there are some local nearby wineries. Also a 20 minute drive north takes you to Temecula wine country which has many wineries with tasting rooms. San Diego County is now the beer capitol of the world with many breweries within minutes of our home. Enjoy but be safe. Uber is a great way to go!
