GREAT FAMILY STAY

  • 5 of 5
The Tennis Ranch Estate by The Sea was everything we were looking for and more. This is not the first time our family has stayed at a Home Away property. We have a large family and include our son's friends on many trips so Hotel/resort stays at a 4.5-5 star level stays require multiple rooms and it gets really really expensive and leaves our family disconnected, which is the opposite of why we take these trips. It's about sharing the vacation experience and time TOGETHER.
Being from the east coast, our family needed to get away from the frigid temps of CT and enjoy all of what sunny CA is about! We tossed and turned on the idea of staying at nearby La Costa Resort. We decided to find a nice home that would give us the resort amenities my family desired. Pool, Tennis, Luxury, Adventure, etc.
From booking to arrival, everything was taken care of. The owner was quite helpful and arranged for some excursions such as atv, horse back riding, and fishing.
The house is quite beautiful, the woodwork on the ceilings were stunning. The kitchen is chef quality(wish mine was like this), and the bedrooms were nice, clean and ready like a hotel would be.
The exterior is what shines even more. Views, views, views. oh yes and the breezes were so comforting, yes I have a stressful job :-( . Hours were spent with my husband just relaxing, gazing into the sky. It was wonderful.
The Kids loved the pool, we did play a bunch of tennis and had a blast. The playground outside was a bonus as well. Keeping kids occupied=HAPPY FAMILY VACATION!
Do not hesitate to rent this place.

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS WE EVENTUALLY HAVE TO GO HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stay at this property year after year, and never have we ever had any problems. The estate is always very clean. The owner is always very accommodating and helpful with anything he can. The house is huge and is great for our family. The playground is an added bonus for the kids and the pool is just great! The ocean view from the property is not that big but it is beautiful. The price of this property is fair considering how much space to play with you get. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a calm oasis with the family. Thanks Bob!

WONDERFUL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We just got home to a polar vortex after staying a week in this beautiful estate in San Diego and needless to say, we are missing it already. We are from Chicago so we were looking to get away with the family this winter to some place warm. Sure we could have done the typical Disney vacation or a cruise to the Bahamas but we wanted something different; something private, something exclusive and something family oriented.
After searching online, we booked a weeks vacation at this estate because it has all of the amenities of home like a full kitchen, multiple bedrooms, TVs and wireless internet but also has a swimming pool, a tennis court with bicycles/tricycles and a playground for kids that are all exclusive to us and no other guests. Even the most expensive hotel or cruise liner cannot offer that kind of exclusiveness and privacy.

The house itself is very spacious with bedrooms spreading across a large area basically making two separate wings of bedrooms. My two daughters and my grandchildren had a great time staying in the upstairs bedrooms away from the other bedrooms. There is a patio upstairs that looks out at two ponies that live on the property. My grandchildren were actually able to feed carrots to the ponies which was a fun experience. Bob is the owner of the estate and is always available via phone or email should you have any questions or special needs.
He informed us that we could also take advantage of the additional horses on the property that he owns next door so our entire family took a relaxing horseback ride through the countryside while we texted pictures to our jealous friends and family back home. It was clear that day so we could also see all the way to the ocean.

To make a long story short, our entire family had a great time enjoying the peaceful surroundings, the amazing weather and accommodations that are hard to find.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying we had the best and most memorable family vacation ever. The estate was just as beautiful as the pictures show and the views were AMAZING! I loved the location too, you feel like you are secluded in the country, yet just a short 5 minute drive to town.

The house itself was gorgeous and very well laid out. The kitchen was great and very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The sleeping accommodations were great too. My kids loved the bunk beds. My kids also loved the playground and exploring the property. They had a ball. My husband and I loved playing tennis and sitting on the patio in the evening watching the sunset. I also loved that the swimming pool had a safety cover. That really put my mind at ease with having little kids.

Bob the owner was great as well. He gave us several suggestions on places to eat and places to take the kids. Legoland was a great hit with the kids and so close. Thanks for the suggestion. He was always just a phone call or text away. Just writing this review makes me want to go back again! Hopefully we can get back out there next year.

HORRIBLY UNSANITARY CONDITIONS. FLED EARLY!

  • 1 of 5
We checked into this property for a vacation with friends. When we went to turn the sheets back in bed the first night, the fitted white sheet was stained with yellow urine stains. We swapped the sheet from another bedroom downstairs as there were no other clean sheets to use. That’s when we began noticing several flies all around the upstairs bedrooms. We tried to sleep as best we could despite the fact that we were swatting flies all night. We spent the next day at the zoo and arrived back late that night. Upon arrival, we were forced to "jump" the gate, as it would not (after 20 attempts) open with the code the owner gave us. Again, once upstairs we were inundated with flies. We continuously swatted and killed flies on countertops, walls, pillows, our water bottles and at one point…a toothbrush! We got absolutely ZERO sleep that night and as the sun rose, we discovered the source of the flies. There was a second staircase from the upstairs bedrooms that leads down to a door that opens to the outside. That door has a 2” - 3” gap of daylight at the bottom of it. Outside the door, we found within feet a huge landfill of horse manure. This was the disposal dump for the entire ranch. The flies were swarming it and flying right underneath the door and into the home. We immediately packed all of our things, left the key and fled. We spent the rest of our vacation at a hotel. We called the owner to question him about the massive manure landfill right outside the bedroom, he replied, "Well, we churn it!" Disgusting. This place is no "Estate by the Sea". In fact, it is far from the sea and in the middle of nowhere. The owner referred to it when speaking to us as a "ranch". We were led to believe this was an upscale "tennis estate" from the description online with no mention of "ranch". The upstairs where we stayed was worse than a Motel 6. We were given dirty, unsanitary conditions to stay in and forced to swat flies from ourselves, our children and our belongings. Owner refused to refund our stay (even for nights we were not there) unless we wrote a specific email to him with language stating "unless you refund our money, we will write a bad review." This seemed very suspicious and made us uncomfortable. We did send a factual email with photos of what we witnessed but refused to add the language he demanded. He was angry we would not word the email the way he wanted and refused to refund anything. Learn from our experience and avoid this property and this owner!

Owner's Response: Normally, I do Not respond to guest reviews but let them speak for themselves. i felt that I must as this guest is NOT Accurate and just trying to ruin our business. When the guests checked in i walked them through the entire house, every room. The guests didn't call or text me to mention they had an issue even though i gave them my cell # and told them i respond Very Quickly. We have a professional cleaning staff that cleans the entire house before new guests checkin. Also a quality control person that Rechecks to make sure Everything is looking GREAT! Gate not working complaint, punch in the Correct Code the gate opens. Complaint about stained sheet is Inaccurate. I personally checked All sheets after guests left and there was NOT a single stained sheet in the entire house. Cmplaint regarding horse manure-fly issue Also Inaccurate and totally Unreasonable. We Do have 2 small ponies Lucky & Toy (as you can see in the video) that do live at the top of the property. There was a small pile of manure that is mixed with hay & dirt at the base of a Newly planted landscaped bank where we just planted some new fruit trees and in the process of being spread. No Swarming Flies there i checked.They also stated there were flies all over the house and they killed Alot of them. I went through the whole house and didn't see one fly Live or Dead. Do we have a few flies in the house sometimes? Sure we do its a large property and Occasionally we see a few flies. Comment nowhere near the sea. We ARE located 9 miles by road to the Pacific Ocean. We have a GREAT view of San Diego County as we are 1000 ft elevation so the fog that hangs down by the ocean is mostly below the estate. The guests called after being at estate 2 days, told me they left and Threatened to post bad reviews all over internet unless i gave them a full refund and also told me that his wife is a attorney and they were going to sue me. I did ask them to put this in writing and they refused.
We have owned the estate for about 20 years and take GREAT Pride in maintaing the estate to a VERY HIGH Standard. We want ALL guest families to have the Best possible vacation experience. We go out of our way to Under Promise and Over Deliver to Make Sure All guests leave Happy! I Feel that this guest was thinking they could get a Full refund by Threatening and Intimidating Me even though they stayed for 2 days. i have contacted guests that stayed before and after this guest and they will be posting Acccurate reviews.
