Absolutely wonderful location for birthday celebration with my family!

  • 5 of 5
While I've been remiss in getting my review posted....I can add that my family is still going on about the 8 wonderful nights we spent together in Vista!! Our group of 7 ranged in age from 74 to 16 months and the property truly offered something for everyone (on-site). There was space galore inside/out--poolside-court side--reading on the upper patio/movie nights in the private screening room. We found cooking inside/out was a dream with the well stocked options! The fruit trees on site were a much appreciated bonus.

Vince was a pleasure to work with from my initial query to his prompt refund of my security deposit! He went above and beyond to make sure we were welcomed and comfortable with things in the house and on the property before he departed. Given we were renting in early May I'd asked in advance to have the pool heated....we were in a "heat wave" a few days in and Vince kindly D/C the heater (and refunded the difference).

My kids are already discussing the next family adventure we might cobble together at this gorgeous Tuscan retreat!

Mountain Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family of five stayed for 10 days at this gorgeous home. Initially we were considering a California vacation where we canvassed much of the state. Then we decided San Diego had enough to offer by itself to just set up shop around there and chill a bit. We live in a beach town ourselves, so we decided why pay a premium for La Jolla or even Carlsbad when we can stay up in these beautiful mountains in a palace like this.
We were a little nervous when we pulled in to the neighborhood, but all apprehensions went away when we got a load of that infinity pool and that view. We did end up going to the zoo, Sea World, La Jolla etc… but the most memorable and fun times were spent relaxing and playing in that awesome pool. Our 13 year old boy and 11 and 8 year old girls barely wanted to leave the house. I should add that we found a water park up the road in the same town of Vista that the kids loved. The theatre room is amazing and is better than going to the movies. Although it is off the beaten path a bit, the place is like one big amusement center. We also heavily utilized the hot tub, exercise equipment and ping pong table in the garage, as well as the tennis court, basketball net and even the putting greens. Inside the house had all the amenities as well, including a beautiful and functional kitchen and extremely comfortable beds. The house is a bit cluttered inside, but it is beautiful.
Vince was very accommodating and responsive and made the whole process very easy for us.

Absolutely worth it!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough good things about this house and the couple that owns it! I came with a group for a national speech and debate tournament being held in San Marcos. Vince and Cindy welcomed us warmly and left everything possible for our comfort. The house is clean, well maintained, and better than the pictures if that's possible. We so enjoyed all the amenities.during our stay and found everything to be in top notch condition. The kitchen is wonderful and saved us money on meals. Adults and teenagers alike could not wait to return each evening to enjoy the beautiful property. Vince responded quickly and thoroughly to every question we had before and during the stay. Shopping and dining are located just a few miles from the property, and we enjoyed a 20 minute drive to Carlsbad (wonderful beach town - bike rentals, shops, coffee, restaurants), surfing lesson at Oceanside (about 25 minutes away), the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Village, and kayaking on Mission Bay (all about 45 minutes away). If you are trying to decide between this house and a beach front property, choose this one. You wake up every morning to stunning views and restful quiet, which makes the short drive to attractions worth it.. Our group had five rental cars while we were there, and there was no problem parking all of them. We made memories here that we will treasure forever. Thank you Vince and Cindy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed San Diego and Bella Vista. We were happy to hear that you had a great time utilizing the house, theater room, pool, Jacuzzi, weight room, tennis and golf. We look forward to seeing you again should you decide to return to San Diego.
Thanks again.
Sincerely,

The Perfect Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We booked this home for a family vacation between Christmas Day and New Year's Day. We are so happy that we did! Vince was easy to work with leading up to the vacation and during. He walked us through the home and showed us how to work everything, and was available when needed.

The house was a great size (HUGE) for our extended family and everyone felt comfortable in their rooms. We had plenty of room to sprawl out, but could also all be together when we wanted.

We loved cooking meals in the kitchen, BBQing, having bonfires at night, sitting in the hot tub, playing tennis, and watching movies in the theatre. We had plenty to do even when we hung around the house! It was within an hour of everything we wanted to do, including Sea World, San Diego Safari Park, the San Diego Zoo, and Oceanside and Carlsbad Beaches.

The home was super luxurious and well-equipped, with details like outdoor gas heaters, beach towels, a nice workout room, coolers. The list goes on and on. Vince even had a spread of food waiting for us, including wine, pancake mix, snacks, and drinks.

There was plenty of parking (we had 3 rental cars) and we just loved the views. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a large and luxurious place to stay.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent Thanksgiving week in this incredible home. We have rented through vrbo many times, and this house is definitely worth every penny. The most impressive part is how many amenities are included. Actually, there are just too many to list! You would never need to leave the house for lack of activities! The tennis court was a big hit, everyone loved the ping-pong table, basketball court and exercise room. But the outdoor hot tub and fire pit were centers of family enjoyment on those chilly nights. If you love movies, then you'll totally love the home theater.
Since the owners actually live in this home, all the extras are there, which is not usual in a designated vacation home: including every imaginable kitchen appliance and gadget, towels, sheets, pillows, and sports equipment. The owners even laid out extra personal toiletries in case the guests forgot them.
The home is loaded with beautiful furniture and decorations that are fit for Architectural Digest! The views are spectacular in every direction, including a sun deck where the sun sets into the ocean. Needless to say, we highly recommend this home.
