About Nick

We are a family of four: Camron, Ryan, Mitra, and Nick. A private resort feel in an area of San Diego that has a slower pace of life...yet still close to everything. Mitra and Nick actively manage all facets of the business. We enjoy working with clients to make the most of their Southern California experience.

Nick purchased this house in 2012

Why Nick chose Ramona

Privacy, expansive view, sunshine, conveniences of modern life. At 1800 feet elevation (high for San Diego) you are above the marine layer and a slight breeze keeps you comfortable during the summer. Surrounding vegetation together with plenty of windows affords a tropical feel.

The perfect venue for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great location and very comfortable for our family of ten, spanning three generations, for a week. The tennis court, spa, and ping pong were all great hits - a little too cool for the pool. The property was well maintained and very professionally managed. The location was great - remote enough to provide privacy and plenty of space for everyone yet still reasonably close to grocery stores, etc. Spent a day at Disneyland, had dinner one evening at a very nice restaurant on the beach, visited some wineries, and made some memories! The property owner was extremely helpful and very professional. We will definitely consider returning for a future stay.

Enjoyed a weekend getaway with fifteen friends at the house. The property is well-appointed, clean and professionally managed. We were able to comfortably sleep everyone in the group and enjoy a relaxing weekend. The setup is spacious enough for entertaining a large group. The views and decor are beautiful.

Best Birtday Celebration Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my birthday at this house. Everything was Perfect! The house had everything I needed and more. Even with the cool weather, we all still enjoyed the pool and spa. Ping Pong table was a great hit. With all the outdoor patio seating that was available, it was nice for us to all sit down, look at the stars and enjoy the nice cool crisp air as we ate birthday cake. This property is kept very clean and well maintained through out. Mary was very helpful in showing the house and demonstrated how to work the lights, pool/spa controls and gave us a very detailed tour of the house. Nick was very quick to respond to my inquires I had before my stay. Talking to Nick on the phone and via email, you can tell he is a very professional business like person that is a true gentleman that cares about your stay and is willing to go far and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. Thank You Nick and Mary for everything. You made my birthday celebration a big hit and a night to remember. Looking forward in booking another stay at your Ramona house in the near future.

Weekend Getaway with 5 families: adults, kids, infants

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful homes my friends and I stayed at for a weekend getaway. This house was perfect for us! If it wasn't a rainy weekend, we would've been able to enjoy the pool. When the sun came out after it rained, we went over to the tennis courts and let the kids run away.

The house was clean, had all the amenities we needed and more. While the kids and babies were asleep, the dads enjoyed their time in the garage playing ping pong while the moms enjoyed sitting around talking and relaxing.

We're definitely coming back in the summer.

Thank you Nick and Mary for making our trip unforgettable!
