I CAN PROMISE IF YOU BOOK WITH US - WE ARE HONEST ABOUT WHAT WE OFFER AND ALL OF OUR REVIEWS ARE 100% AUTHENTIC.

THIS IS NOT A SPECIAL EVENT VENUE - NO WEDDINGS, ANNIVERSARY PARTIES, REUNIONS, CORPORATE RETREATS, ETC.! THANK YOU!

Beautiful property - Great for kids!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family reunion at Casa de Allegra this December. The property is very spacious for the 12 of us and is great for young kids! The house and the outdoors are well maintained and are just as pictured. The only downside for us was that it was rainy the week we were there so we couldn't enjoy the outdoors as much. The house is the most equipped of all rental places - everything you need in the kitchen is there as well as everything you need for kids (toys, beach toys, bikes, roller skates, strollers, etc.)! The property is tucked in a quite neighborhood but is very conveniently located (few minutes walk for groceries and close to 2 major highways).

I took one star off due to the difficulty to get a hold of the owner both before and after the stay. Once I sent in my deposit, it took 5 weeks (with multiple attempts to contact owner, including email, voice mail and text messages) to receive the signed contract. It also took a month and a half to get my deposit back after my trip. Lucikly, the owner was very responsive the week before our stay and during our stay!

Owner's Response: I normally don't respond to reviews, but because this reviewer is specifically criticizing me personally, I felt I should respond. First, I want all of our future guests to know that I am not a property management company with multiple staff members, I am the owner and I handle every aspect of your stay at our beautiful home from start to finish. I take great pride in providing you an excellent vacationing experience; providing a superior property loaded with everything you could possibly need to have an amazing experience; making sure our home is impeccable for the enjoyment of your family; and helping you in any way I can with travel arrangements, restaurants suggestions, help renting bikes, cribs, surfboards, whatever you need to make this the trip of your lifetime. We want you to such an amazing time in San Diego that you want to return time and time again. My business is a labor of love for me and not something you will get from a property management company. Contrary to what this guest says, I did send her a confirmation when I received her contract and deposit. She believed it may have gone to spam and been deleted. She contacted me about two weeks after I had sent that information to tell me she didn't get it - I had no idea it was not received until she contacted me. At the time that she reached out the area where we live in San Diego was being evacuated because of the crazy wild fires that were happening in May of 2014. Our family had to evacuate twice and it was a very stressful time. We also had a death in our family that was a major loss for all of us. I made this guest aware of the situation and apologized and am disappointed that she would criticize me during this difficult time. Regarding the return of the deposit, per our contract, we have 60 days to return deposits to our guests. I was cetainly within our contractual obligation by returning her check 45 days after her departure. I want to make sure that future guests know that we have a 60 day return policy because we review our utility bill and need to survey the property to make sure there is no damage. We do our best to handle distribution of funds in a timely manner. We work hard to keep all of our guests happy, communicate thoroughly throughout the process, and provide a superior rental product. You should expect nothing but the best from us, and I wanted to explain this situation so you can feel safe and secure renting with Casa de Allegra.

Great vacation home! A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a wonderful vacation week. Home is better in life than pictures can tell. Big, spacious house. Great pool, potting green, outside foreplace with tv. Grill with outside dinning table. You dont have time to enjoy everything the house has to offer. Every morning there were little bunnies in the garden. Full of toys, high chairs, strollers, bikes, surfing boards, beach toys, available. Home owners were great! We would definitely stay there again no doubt.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is exactly what it looks like in the pictures, description and reviews - IDEAL! Halfway between San Diego and Anaheim, with outlet shopping in Carlsbad and close proximity to a great beach right in Oceanside. We traveled from Canada with 6 adults, 4 toddlers and a newborn. We spent some time at attractions, but also spent alot of time at the house for meals and a couple pool days. Not once did it ever feel like there was not enough room for all of us. In fact, we didn't even use the front room or formal dining, as the kitchen area was so spacious, and we dined outside on the beautiful patio. With the Walmart just down the path for shopping ( like a 3 minute walk), we were able to find whatever we needed, but almost everything was already at the house anyway, right down to steak spice. There is not enough room here for me to list all the things that made staying here such a successful and enjoyable part of a multi-family vacation. IT was clean, bright, warm, comfortable. If i had the money to spare, i would have made a serious offer on the place so i could return to it any time i wanted. That is not an exaggeration, its a conversation my wife and I had when we were there, and after we got home. Again, this place is EXACTLY what it looks like on this posting. No trick photography to make it look bigger than it is. SO enjoyable, can't say it enough. We'll be going back next time we head to the area, couldn't be soon enough.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 travelled along with another family of 4 and this house was the perfect setup! The kids in our party were 10-13 and had a blast in the pool, on the putting range and down at the beach that was close enough to walk when we wanted to go. We have rented other homes in Sunriver Oregon, Lake Tahoe and Hawaii but none of them felt like a home with all the normal items you use everyday. That may sound strange, but often we rent and then have to shop for items like foil, zip lock baggies, paper towel, etc. This home had everything we could think of. They even had bikes and scooters for the kids to use. We had planned to go to the Zoo, LEGOLAND, Disneyland and do site-seeing, but ended up only doing Disneyland because our families just wanted to hang out together! One side note... I have MS and am always worried about my surroundings when I travel due to my disability(drop foot, unsteady gait, use cane). There is a bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor that allowed me not to have to go up and down stairs. This was a huge plus for our family! I would highly recommend this vacation rental!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

As beautiful as the pictures are on the website, you still will be blown away by the beauty of the house! The backyard is literally a paradise! My two young boys loved the pool, the TV beside the fireplace (outside!), the swingset. And the house has everything you can think of (even marshmallow roasting sticks). Carrie and Brad were wonderful hosts and they made sure that everything was immaculate upon our arrival. We were very sad to leave but hope that we will return again soon:)

The Iowa Crew

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it! All the wonderful accommodations are exactly as it reads. We loved the quiet neighborhood, the outside area was immaculate, it was close to stores, the beach and many family attractions. There are some nice close by restaurants and food delivery options as well. Our only regret is we didn't spend more time just relaxing at the house. I knew the house looked great, but I was a little concerned what the surrounding area would be like and it was all wonderful. We had my whole family with 5 kids and 8 adults. The space was great and no one had to sleep on the floor or a blow up mattress. We all agreed that splitting a home like this 5 ways was much better and almost equally priced as getting hotel rooms. We weren't having to coordinate like we would have if we were all split up. We also liked being away from the tourist areas that you generally are in when you stay in hotels. Casa De Allegra was warm, inviting and definitely a home away from home!
