About Jeff and Alisa Chessani
After 23 years of service in the Marine Corps, Jeff retired and we traveled across the country in a trailer with our big fun family. Feeling somewhat cramped, we purchased this home in Escondido. Currently Jeff is attending Bible college.
Jeff and Alisa Chessani purchased this House in 2011
Why Jeff and Alisa Chessani chose Midway
We purchased this home to be near our church, Fundamental Baptist Church. It was a lengthy and interesting remodeling project. Our favorite part is the large modern kitchen!
What makes this House unique
Our home is centrally located to all southern California has to offer. Fresh fruit trees on the property are available for guests to enjoy. Minutes from downtown Escondido!

PERFECT place for KIDS of ANY AGE!
This was our second time staying at Jeff and Alisa’s house. And undoubtedly it won’t be the last! The house could not be more perfect for kids (and their parents). So many activities to entertain them from the arcade style basketball indoor hoops for hours of competition to the full size trampoline outside enclosed with safety netting. Plus the newly added full sized air hockey game. The toddlers spent hours on the back enclosed patio playing with all the Playschool toys. The HUGE front yard with swings, a tree house and twisting slide is totally fenced for safe activity.
The house itself is also ideal for kids. Two sets of bunk beds with safety rails gave us comfort with even the younger kids getting their turn on top. All beds in the house very comfy with lots of extra pillows. Except for the bedrooms, the house has laminate flooring or tile which made for easy clean up. A modern kitchen with double ovens. Tons of storage space. Every appliance you could want. Front loading washer and dryer. A dining room that accommodates a crowd. Big, comfy couches. This house has been perfect for our family gatherings.
The owner was quickly responsive prior to our stay. And the property manager was so attentive to us and anticipated our every need during our stay. She greeted me at the door and reviewed how to operate the appliances, etc. And she was always a phone call or a text away, working to ensure that our needs were met throughout our stay. A large beautiful tray of meats and cheese welcomed us to the home. And to us, it quickly became a home, not a house. And we can’t wait to go back!
The house was very clean and accommodated our large group very easily.
Great Family Home
My sister and I joined families here to visit family and we couldn't have picked a better place. Our 4 kids would play in the front yard with the tree house (which the dirt in the picture is now grass all over), while the adults would just sit on the comfortable outside furniture conversing. It was great because we didn't need to worry about them with fencing all the way around. They even have a grill in the yard so one day we cooked dinner while overlooking them playing.
Inside basketball was also definitely a hit and they also have a trampoline and outside basketball(bring your own basketball-we were lucky and had ours). We stayed here for 4 days and we never turned on a tv.
The kitchen was amazing and has every tool/dish you need. Everything was very stocked (soap, toilet paper, laundry detergent,...) and the house was just comfortable to stay in. We'll stay here next time we visit if it's available.
Perfect House for Children!
We just left this house and we truly enjoyed our stay! The house was comfortable and we felt like we were staying at a family members house. We loved being able to close the gate and let the kids play in that amazing front yard. All the kids had a blast. The basketball hoops inside were a hit too. Wish the queen size beds were king sized, but not a big deal. Just would have been more comfortable when our little kids came crawling into bed with us in the early mornings. The citrus trees smelled heavenly!! We enjoyed some oranges and some lemons off the trees! We will definitely be back when we return to the area! Thanks for sharing your house with us!
Perfect home for families with active children
This was the most kid friendly home we have stayed in. We had four adults and five children and never felt crowded. The kids loved the outdoor play area and the sunroom play area. Our boys and the adults had fun playing the basketball arcade game. Even after a full day at Lego land the kids still wanted to play outside on the play equipment.
The beds are very comfortable. The kids liked having a bunkbed room to themselves. We brought a portable pack and play for the baby.
The only thing not kid friendly was the dishes. All the dishes are heavy porcelain. They do have some plastic glasses. I would also suggest you bring a cheap disposable table cloth to cover the table. It's a beautiful table but had seams that collect crumbs.
The hostess, Melissa, was fabulous! She was so kind and helpful. If we are back in the area, we will definitely stay here again.
Really nice house and kid friendly!
Home was in a good location for activities and lots of things for the kids to do. Great house! The owners should supply some staples such as flour, sugar, spices, oil, napkins, foil, plastic wrap, sandwich bags, etc. that people would have on hand. Any rental we’ve ever stayed at has had the basics so that you don’tbhave To go to the store and buy all of that. And ifvyou’te Flying, you can’t take extra with you either. Also should have more than 2 dish towels in the kitchen. Every new renter should have a NEW sponge-I don’t know if the renter before me used that sponge to wipe the floor! Should also have at least 1 set of extra sheets for each size bed. It truly was a great house but loses a star for the lack of basics.
Thank you for your feedback on our home! We are glad you liked the house and apologize that you were not given a new sponge at check-in. This was an oversight and has been addressed. Every guest should get a new sponge upon arrival. As for extra dishtowels and sheets, they are available in the house. Extra sheets for each bed size are available in the hall closet and extra dishtowels (about a dozen), house towels, and beach towels are available in the laundry room closet. Our property manager shows these to guests at check-in, but I believe you were not the first arrival in your group so unfortunately, you did not get the tour. However, guests are able to reach our property manager by phone anytime during their stay with questions about where items are located in the house. Occasionally, guests leave behind items in the house for future guests, but we do not provide kitchen staples other than coffee, coffee filters, and salt/pepper. We do provide guests with bath soap, hand soap, dish soap, and laundry soap. Thanks again for your feedback!
