We love people, horses, dogs and cats! Debi is an oil painter, a credentialed teacher and a licensed realtor. Gregg is a photographer, videographer and motorcycle enthusiast.

Debi Ireland purchased this cottage in 2010

We have been living and riding horses in this rural corner of San Diego County for nearly 10 years and just love the beauty of this place and being so close to nature but only 40 miles from downtown San Diego. We are able to ride our horses from our property through the Hellhole Canyon preserve and the BLM land that backs right into our property.

The original owner took almost 10 years to construct the Pueblo and it is made almost entirely of poured concrete. This unique habitat had not been in use for many years and after purchasing the property in 2010, Debi decided to create a unique living space for others to enjoy as well as ourselves.

Living in this area provides the opportunity for star-gazing, hiking, trail riding, exploring the back country and observing birds and other small wildlife. The Pueblo is close enough to San Diego to enjoy a day at the beach, the San Diego Zoo, Mission Bay, or any other of San Diego's wonderful attractions not to mention there are 4 casinos within 15 miles of The Pueblo. The Safari Park is but a 30 minute drive from our property!

We are only 20 miles from the Palomar Mountain observatory!

Awesome place and owner!

Took my wife here for our 15th anniversary. Not only was the property peaceful and very private, but the owner's attitude and hospitality was impeccable. She's close by if you need her but never intrusive. It feltlike we owned the mountains while we were there and we've been missing it every moment since we left.

Our visit was so peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed the remote hiking experiences and came back everyday for our barbeque feast, hot tubing and evening fire events. This unique facility was fun, clean, as advertised and the warm February weather was a great break from our MN winter!

We were in town for a dog event with our dogs and always look for a place to stay that allowed the dogs to have a yard. This place fit the bill! The fence is low, and I wouldn't recommend it for dogs that have a huge desire to escape, but mine were fine. I VERY much appreciated that the owner has taken the time to clip the catcus so the dogs wouldn't get stuck!

The kitchen being downstairs was odd, but we managed. The fridge isn't full size so we had to work to squeeze some stuff in. We did however have a wonderful BBQ and a fire on the side patio.

We're already looking to book the property again for our next event.

Private, Relaxing Getaway

Our stay was really wonderful at this property. The property is away from the hustle and bustle of every day life! We just packed a cooler full of food and drink and headed out to Valley Center. The house is funky and unique and it was very enjoyable to just hang out, bbq and relax in the hot tub. We did a short hike the next day and the weather was just great. We definitely plan on getting back to this place for another getaway in the future. Thank you Gregg and Debi!!

Liked this place!

We really, really liked the place. Very peaceful with eclectic and great decoration, art. The kitchen is separate from the Casita but not an issue (though a small stove would have been preferred over the single cook top) but not a deal breaker to us. The only issue I had was that there was not wi-fi. But this was my fault I did not check before hand as I was in a hurry so shame on me.

The owners were very nice. My wife was ill and they gave us aspirin for her and lent us an antique iron. I def. recommend the Casita.
