We stayed almost 4 weeks at this gorgeous house. The location was perfect. It is a 15 minutes drive from the beach and we never had to drive more than 10 minutes to get anywhere else; restaurants, cinema, the grocery store, nail salon, etc. is all very close. We were very impressed with the house as well. The back yard is heavenly, the beds were extremely comfortable and the sunsets absolutely sensational. The neighborhood seemed to be safe and comfortable. We had such a great vacation and would not have changed one thing. We never wanted to leave :) Peter
We had such an awesome time at this property. It was truly a home away from home, only better because the beach was nearby! From the moment we started the process of choosing a vacation property to stay at, we had nothing but positive feedback. The property manager told us early on in the process that we would need to bring only our personal belongings and smiles, and boy was he right! This vacation home ticks all the boxes! The kitchen is fully stocked, there are plenty of towels, free WiFi, laundry machines right in the unit...it was so relaxing to be able to know that everything was taken care of! And, clean? First time I haven't worried about re-cleaning dishes, etc. when renting! Everything about the property was as it was described by the owners, only maybe a little bit better in reality than the pictures! The entire property was well taken care of. The panorama view was breathtaking, the pool & jacuzzi were lovely.
The only disappointing part of our entire stay was packing to go. We realized that even three weeks were not enough for us in this beautiful location, and would plan to stay for another three weeks next time! Yes, that DOES mean that we plan to come back to this place for another vacation...it was THAT good!
This is a lovely, well designed home in a terrific neighbour. Our teenage boys really enjoyed the big screen TV, golf course, and heated clubhouse pool. On one or two occasions, they even jumped into the freezing backyard pool. We were definately warned that heating the pool and hot tub would be expensive so we chose not to. The owner is German, and the property is managed by her brother. As the pictures indicate, the house has a modern, designer aesthetic. As per previous negative reviews, the linens were a bit dated, but this was hardly a dealbreaker for us- the carpets were clean. Perhaps the owner could invest in outside lighting. It was pretty cold to sit out at night when we visited , but it would be great at other times of the year. All transactions were completed by cheque, and there were no problems. Phone calls and e-mails were returned quickly. We had a fabulous time, and from I can see on vrbo regarding California rentals- this house was also a great bargain.
This is the second time we have rented this property. There are several wonderful characteristics of the property. The location is very central to visiting coastal towns.....Legoland.....aquariums....it is a single story for those that cannot do stairs. My son and his family live in San Marcos and this is why we opted to rent yet again for the convenience. The outside yard is impeccable and quite pretty with a mature pine and there are roses, daisies and hibiscus. The view of the golf course is beautiful with palm trees and a pond. The first time we rented the awning over the pool patio area was not operational and sections of the wrought iron fencing by the pool was rusted and parts missing. Those two items were repaired and replaced. The beds are very comfortable. Great space for entertaining friends/family. The negatives of the property are as follows.....there was no outside lighting for either patio which is a real problem when you are trying to cook out and cannot see what you are cooking. The garbage disposal was not working......jammed. The bed linens and bath towels and bath mats are VERY tired and worn and mismatched. The garbage containers were overflowing with bugs flying about. The area rugs are worn and soiled. Our first night in the house, I walked into the bathroom and there were two trails of red ants. There is nothing in the cupboards.....not even salt and pepper. No coffee. One garbage bag was under the sink. Other homes we have rented have those basics waiting for you. One house even has milk juice muffins wine and cheese waiting for us so that we may relax after a long day of travel. I am putting this info out here so you have a clear understanding of the property and what you should expect. I gave it an average rating only because of the convenient location. If not for the location I would have rated it two stars. I submitted these same remarks to the caretaker prior (3 days ) to placing this review.
My husband and I rented this property for the month of March, 2012. We hosted several guests during our stay. By the end of the month we had made it "home". The large great room and ample furnishings were great for entertaining. The home's location on the quiet golf course made it feel like a real retreat! After receiving instruction on the heating of the hot tub, we had no issues. It took less that 30 minutes to get to the correct temperature. we used it several times. As renters we had access to beautiful tennis courts, a heated pool near the clubhouse, and even a fishing dock within walking distance. What a wonderful place in Southern California!
While a spa is advertised with this rental, there was a problem heating it, which is an issue in January. Despite our efforts to resolve the issue during a 3+week stay, we had no resolution-i.e. no spa. The owner sent abusive emails to us upon completion of our stay regarding the spa-unnecesary and inappropriate, and withheld funds based upon energy useage. Nice house-poor management.
