Lovely, spacious, modern, relaxing home!

This home is all you would expect it to be from the descriptions and the photos! We celebrated Christmas 2008 here, and it was a perfect venue for my son and his new wife, both sets of parents, and my daughter and her little toddler. Every detail of comfort and quality has been incorporated in this modern home. It has the feel of a luxury hotel with the amenities of a private home. We especially enjoyed the fireplace while watching DVDs, and the well-stocked gourmet kitchen - ALL of us got in on the cooking each day!
The Leucadia Rock House is immactuate, beautifully decorated, and appointed with lovely furnishings and plenty of high quality linens. I was very impressed that the owners did not skimp on things such as paper products and linens (like other rentals I have used in the past). The grounds were also immaculately groomed, and there were plenty of areas and supplies for outdoor enjoyment.
The weather during our stay was stormy, but we had planned our stay at this vacation rental to stay in and enjoy time together. We didn't use the outdoors, but there was so much to do at the house that we didn't miss going outside at all. We brought DVDs and CDs, but the house had those too! We were able to watch by the fireside, cook delicious meals and enjoy each others' company. There are books, games, music, billiards and Internet too. Even our little one found toys and loved the layout of the home. There was a quiet bedroom near the back for his naps, and one other bedroom downstairs. There were also two huge luxurious bedrooms with retreats upstairs, one with a fireplace! The seaside decor with shells and lovely objects was beautiful.
The owners of this home were quick to contact me after my inquiry, and always answered all of my emailed questions immediately. When I called them, they were happy to help me and never acted like I was bothering them with my questions. They gave clear instructions, and check in and check out were exactly as they described. They gave me lots of information about the area and there is also a binder in the home with local info. There are grocery stores as well as restaurants and sightseeing close to the home, and the beach is also very close (not walking distance in the winter).
I would recommend this home to ANYONE who wanted to visit the area. It's so close to San Diego yet far enough out to give a nice vacation feel in a private setting. We would love to spend time here again in the future.
