About Dawn Nicoli

I've lived in this house since 1992. I'm a portrait photographer by trade and have used the grounds through out the years to create some magical images for my clients. Everyone who comes onto the property remarks how they feel like they're in a tropical paradise. It's truly a tranquil and relaxing place to be. I'm sometimes on property and sometimes not but you will always have our fantastic property manager, Joe to help you with any needs.

Dawn Nicoli purchased this House in 1991

We rented the entire house and it is beautiful! The property is gorgeous and has beautiful patios off of every room with water features everywhere. Our favorite place though was the pool, outdoor kitchen, and hot tub area. And I have to mention the awesome sky high treehouse that has amazing views. Joe was such a great help and we can't thank him enough. Wish we could have met you in person Dawn - your house is AMAZING!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      This family was the ideal guests. Four siblings coming for a reunion for their dad's birthday. I'm so glad to have been able to provide the house for them. I barely knew they stayed here and the surrounding neighbors didn't either. Wish I could have met you too!

                                                                      Our tropical island

                                                                      Kathy F.

                                                                      We were fortunate enough to stay at the Country Oasis for almost two weeks! I only wish it could have been longer...we are a family of 6, (four adults and two children) and Dawn's property provided everything needed for those seeking good memories, secure, almost fantasy-like conditions and easy proximity to all conveniences; good restaurants, beautiful vineyards and all San Diego area attractions.

                                                                      I highly recommend this beautiful property for anyone seeking a place to be with someone or a family who love to spend time together...we particularly loved the salt water pool, the perfect palapa-cabana with a outdoor grill and a table for 8, the waterfall near by with the turtles fish and the magical goldfish...the grounds that shimmer at night with breezes and twinkling lights that gently cool all they touch...we will probably miss the "staff" that secretly run the place the most ..they only appear like magic if you need a hand or a suggestion and fix any issue quickly...to a tee they are all friendly, incredicably talented and kind. Special "shout out" to Toby and Joe... if you like massages don't miss asking to meet Toby...Joe is a jack of every trade with a smile that shines..and as an added bonus, if you are so inclined, Dawn herself is a wonderful photographer with a talent for making even tired children smile..

                                                                      I don't as a rule provide more than is needed in a review and this is my first 5 star...please know that our family has traveled all over the world, that we regularly go to tropical islands and foreign countries and always have quality accommodations and massages in far away places. With a new 4 month old grandchild we were reticent to leave the US as yet...Dawn provided an island in a place we would have not expected...we look forward to a return performance...if you love adventure and the beauty of nature and peaceful surroundings don't hesitate to stay here...just don't take all the weeks...leave time for us, please. Thank you, Dawn, for all your imagination, hospitality and kindness...
