About Jessica

I am a decorative painter by trade and obsessed with interior design. We remodeled this home with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears over a 3 year period and hope that it brings joy to each guest that stays within the property.

Jessica purchased this House in 2014

Why Jessica chose Vista

It's such a beautiful property on a corner lot with the most stunning views and beautiful pool- its a dream just to spend an evening outside on the deck and we wanted to share that with other people who are looking for something beyond the normal hotel stress.

What makes this House unique

The views of the sunset off the deck (especially in the fall and spring), salt water pool system we had installed after the refinish of the plaster, the sunroom is my favorite room n the whole house as it's so airy and open!

The owners were a pleasure to deal with and have thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. I appreciated the directions provided for the spa and that cabinets and drawers are labeled so you can find exactly what you are looking for. Beautifully decorated, super clean with plenty of space. Easy access to highways to San Diego or Disneyland. Highly recommended.

Imagine staying at your best friends house and they have done everything to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We really enjoyed the pool table, the jacuzzi, and the outdoor grill. But our favorite feature was the super comfy beds. We would defiantly recommend staying at Casa De Norte!!

The fire pit at night is warm and convenient to use. We couldn't have asked for abetter place to stay!!! Loved the streaming for TV use.
