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.

Enjoyable Experience

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family reunion with room to roam for all 10 of us. The pool was the hit with the adults and children. House was roomy and well appointed. Had not played tennis or ping pong in years but had great fun.

Absolutely beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home for one week for a family vacation. There were eleven of us and it was perfect! The views are breathtaking and the house was immaculate. It was like having your own private resort. The grandchildren loved the pool and getting into the hot tub after a day of sightseeing was awesome for the adults! The location was great. It only took a few minutes to the grocery store. It was one of the best vacations we've had. Didn't want to go home!

Our stay was great! We loved our time here. Owner was very accommodating and personable. The house was everything we expected from the pictures and was very clean and well maintained. The location was about 45 minutes from most attractions but we liked being in a more secluded location. BEAUTIFUL View! I would definitely recommend this location to stay and we would rent this home again if we go to San Diego again.

Dream Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family had not vacationed together in an extremely long time. We desperately needed a relaxing get away. This vacation home served us, 17 in total, well from the time we arrived until the time we parted.

Nick was fabulous to work with and was just wonderful. I cannot express how wonderful the ENTIRE experience was, from the beginning until the end. We would not hesitate to repeat everything all over again...without a doubt.

Thank you Nick for sharing this "little bit of heaven" with our family.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a private retreat. It was clean, spacious and had everything. The kitchen even had two refrigerators, so we were able to stock all our food for the week.

Sitting in the backyard, you see nothing but sky… not like some places where your view is ruined by telephone poles or power lines. We felt very safe with our kids playing in the tennis court, hanging out in the pool, playing ping pong in the huge garage or riding their bikes around the driveway within the security gate.

Aside from the property deserving 5 stars, the owner and manager deserve it as well. There were a couple of things that came up during our stay that were unexpected, but they were quick to react and our group was very impressed in their dedication to making our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Although you never have to leave the property, we still managed to play golf, bring the kids to Legoland, and even have a beach picnic in La Jolla. I concur with Mark’s review, it truly is “the best of both worlds”.

OK, but some management issues ...

  • 2 of 5
We (an extended family of 6, including an 87-year-old patriarch) stayed here for 5 nights when we were in the area for a wedding. This is a nice place: we enjoyed the pool, spa, tennis courts, views, spacious rooms, TVs, kitchen, …

A couple of things, however, will keep us from recommending this place.

First day
The entrance has two gates—one outside and one at the end of a longish driveway. The outside gate is opened by punching in a code provided by the owner(driving out is not a problem, but you need the code to enter). We arrived in two cars. Later, we left one at the house, and drove to the airport to pick up the rest of the crew. Returned late at night. Gate code quit working. Called the caretaker who advised us to walk by the gate (a gap lets one in), go to the house, drive the second car down to open the gates, and then drive in! While the driveway to the house is only a third of a mile, the incline is almost a 45-degree angle and the entire walk is unlit. Wary of snakes and such we made the trek, huffing and puffing. We were pooped!

Second day
Problem wasn’t fixed, despite calls to caretaker and owner. Same problem when we got home in the afternoon. And again, late at night. Trek uphill. Drive second car down. Open gate. Drive up.

Third day
Same story on returning in the afternoon after a morning outing. The next day was the wedding, and we needed both cars. Afraid that we would not be able to get back in, we got a rental car (paid for by the owner) to leave at the house! And that third night: Again walked up the incline, drive the rental car down to open the gates ….

Fourth and Fifth days
Problem was fixed. A new code worked. Didn’t need the rental car, but we kept it, just in case. Of course, we had to return it ourselves, to a place about 12 miles away.

The whole thing was a major worry and a head-aching hassle, that left a bad taste in the mouth re: management. If one has trouble entering the property, everything else seems to be pointless.

Here’s another: We were there for a wedding, but there was no iron in the house to press clothes. The caretaker went to K-Mart and got us one. But no ironing board. “Use the dining table,” she told us. Not good!

Some time after our return, I emailed the owner about the possibility of a partial refund of our monies. No reply.

Two weeks later, I emailed him again. No reply.

With the owner so unresponsive, all I can say is: Rent at your risk!
