Winter get-away in friendly neighborhood

We recently spent Christmas and more at this cozy home on the golf course. Although we are not golfers, it was relaxing to watch them on the green from the livingroom sofa. The description and photos of this house are accurate, and we found the owners to be lovely people. All rooms are spacious, and the patio was our favorite spot for lunch and reading as we had sun until mid-afternoon. This was one of the coldest winters in San Diego County, but we managed to stay warm here.
The location of this community was perfect for us and provides easy access to Rancho Santa Fe Road, San Marcos Boulevard (Restaurant Row and Las Posas shopping center), Palomar Airport Road (to the Carlsbad Outlets) and the I78. We like to take walks and do mild hiking and discovered that San Marcos has some very nice parks and trails. The neighborhood is great for walking, as many people do. In addition, the planned community of San Elijo Hills is a short distance away with its large park and trail system.
Lake San Marcos is undergoing many improvements now, with a senior living community almost ready to open and the hotel being totally renovated. We can only imagine how lively it will be on that side of the lake in a few months. This neighborhood, however, is behind the lake and consists of older homes that are gradually turning over and being renovated. The owner of this house has long-range plans for improvements, too. All in all, we were happy to have stayed here and met Birgit, Hans and Horst!
