It Was Almost Like Fantasy Island!

Pool was amazing!!! April & Michael went to great expense to create this MIRAGE! We had so much fun!!! The waterfall & slides are amazing!!! The whole family (11 of us), from 6-71, had a fantastic time! Because of favorable scheduling, April was able to go out of her way to open the house to us a couple of hours early, to accommodate our early arrival in San Diego. The pool, as promised, was heated to 85! In March - 60-70 degree temps, it was great! With their latest technology, you control waterfalls, slides, pool and plant & rock formation lighting, etc. Even Dad & Great Uncle spent 5 hrs. in the pool with little ones, while the ladies went to the wine country in Temecula (Fabulous!). Their newly added & covered super grill/burner/frig/counter area with bar seating for 8 people, was the best! Barbecue's were great! Frig held food & drinks for 11 people. Quite convenient, when it was time to put out all of the food! The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable, washer & dryer worked great, big living room/family room (Great Room Area). With a couple of chairs from the patio, we easily sat 11 people in the dining room & had some great family gatherings. Did find a couple of things that we needed, and on contacting April, she was over in no time at all, providing what we needed. She obviously took our expectations & needs as her #1 priority. She truly cared about our experience! If you can pull yourself away from the house, there's Disney, Universal, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, The Beach (you are about 15 minutes from Pacific Beach & probably 30 minutes from Coronado & Silver Strand Beaches - THE BEST!), Kayaking, Whale Watches, Dolphins, Snorkeling, The Wine Country, Trolley Tours, Great Shopping (La Jolla is very close), Great Restaurants, and on, and on, and on. YOU ARE THERE!!! They even thought of those little extra things for the kids, like sidewalk chalks, bubbles, videos, games, toys, etc! LOTS to do! A week is surely not even close, to enough time, to do all! The past year, has been a very personally trying time for our family; and we want to thank April & Michael for being on top of things, to make it a fabulous & memorable vacation for us! We definitely would recommend this home for your next very special vacation & we definitely plan on coming back here on our next trip to San Diego!

Owner's Response: It was pleasure meeting your family. I'm glad you mentioned all of those attractions. Not everyone knows that we have wine country so close by or whale watching, etc. I just updated our brochures in the house this week and put some of those attractions you mentioned. We hope to see you on your next vacation to San Diego. April and Michael
