Overview

Lakeside House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Spacious 3,700 square foot resort-style country home on 5 acres, adjacent to miles of open space. Enjoy stunning mountain views while hot tubing from your large deck, or retreat to the private and secluded back yard pool area, with three waterfalls and a large resort style rock hot tub, hammock and outdoor grill. Inside other amenities await, including a gym, sauna, pool table, large screen TV, and 3 fireplaces, all set in a blend of southwestern and native american decor. While you may feel miles away from the bustling San Diego, you are only 40 minutes away from downtown and the beach, including major attractions such as Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, and Sea World. Other nearby attractions include endless hiking trails, a lake with fishing and boating (about 3 miles away), horse back riding, and more.

Enjoy your master bedroom suite (the only room on the second floor) where you have your own private mountain and pond view balcony, fireplace, skylights, and waterfall shower. The downstairs bedrooms are dual rooms with a connecting bathroom (dorm style). There is also a full bath in the gym, and an outdoor shower on the deck.

Local wildlife includes: Red tailed hawks, Golden Eagles, Owls, Osprey, Coyotes, Road-runners, Wild Turkey, and many others! If you are REALLY lucky you may spot a Bobcat drinking from the pond.

This home is a very special place and we have put lots of TLC into making this a welcoming retreat for travellers and for wildlife. However, we want to make sure it is right for YOU! Please review the following advisories.

ADVISORIES:

1) Please note that to get to the house you must travel about a mile down a bumpy dirt road. Standard vehicles are just fine.. just a wee bit bumpy. May not want to bring your low clearance sports car.

2) There is weekly pool and yard maintenance which will be scheduled. Weekly cleaning is also available and will be arranged with you in advance. We will let you know the times so it will not impact your privacy.

3) The sounds of frogs and crickets may keep you awake at night. :)

4) The sunset against El Cap Mountain may take your breath away.

5) The night sky may remind you how small and insignificant we all are, or how incredible it is that we are at all.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to enchant you with our home and valley.

Why Laura Cyphert chose Lakeside

This property is a labor of love; built as our 'dream home' in 2005 after losing everything in a devastating fire in 2003. It has everything we dreamed of having; tall open ceilings, spacious floor plan, and all the amenities we could dream of. After living in this home for many years, we decided that the 3,700 square foot home was too big for just two people, and we knew the house was a perfect family vacation home. We have LOVED providing this home as a family vacation rental, and now split our time between this house and our other home, and have the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

Our home is extremely private and feels tucked away from the rest of the world, yet you are just a few miles from a bustling town, and a short drive to one of the largest cities in California. Enjoy complete privacy poolside with no other homes visible, and enjoy the wildlife that comes to the front yard pond. This is truly a unique location.

Serene escape from busy San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin on the many positive things about the property and the owners and the property manager. I had many questions in the beginning and was always responded very quickly, which was great. The house has an amazing view and is barely 20 miles outside of San Diego and is so peaceful and relaxing it's great for a short get away. The house was big with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The master bathroom shower is HUGE! there are 2 hot tubs that you can enjoy... one in the backyard and one on the front deck so you can enjoy the nice view. I cannot say enough about the follow thru of the owners not only do they send you a great map on how to find the location but I also got a phone call after I arrived to ensure everything was to my liking and to let me know if i had any questions not to hesitate to call. the pond up front is great because it has a great view and it has turtles and koi and other fish for you to enjoy. the other great thing about the house is it has everything you can think of as far as plenty of extra blankets and pillows and cooking utensils and seasonings etc. I was worried that I needed to bring everything but it had plenty of plates, cups and every other thing you can think of! I cannot say enough good things about the house which includes 2 fire places, a large deck, a pool table, darts, a huge kitchen and much more but the owners were great about making sure you were satisfied with clear instructions on how everything worked. the ONLY thing i would suggest is that they put up a better sign or land mark so that you know which driveway is the one you should turn left on to go up to their house so that it's easier to find. also i'd recommend you having a truck to go up there as the part of the driveway that is not paved has quite a bit of erosion and some cars could easily get stuck. other than that amazing place and would definitely return again!!!!

Great Private Home

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property and our group really enjoyed our stay. It's really out of the city, and is very private. The outdoor space is truly lovely, and the kids loved the pond with all it's fish and turtles.

The home is very spacious, had a nice kitchen, and was in general very comfortable. In the back of the property it is very private, you won't see anyone else, which we loved so much.

As was mentioned in other reviews, and I will echo here, the road to this property is very rough. I would not recommend renting any luxury vehicles as they won't do well. Part of the road was pretty washed out while we were there as there had been rain, so there were really big potholes.

Another thing to note: the shower in the master was great, but on the main level the water came out either cold or very hot in both showers. It wouldn't stop us from staying again, but was a bit of an annoyance.

A great family-friendly house & beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get together to celebrate our new granddaughter at this great house. All of us really enjoyed the house, pond (with turtles and fish) and beautiful hills and valley around us. The house was clean, comfortable, roomy, and family-friendly. We had a good time and will certainly consider doing it again. The finances and planning portions of the experience went smoothly and professionally. We appreciate the quick and courteous responses by Cindy and the owners.

Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We found the property exceeded all of our expectations. The home was rustic, well equipped, spacious and perfect for a family vacation. It is in an ideal location with the privacy of a mountain setting while being located close to the beach and San Diego attractions such as SeaWorld and the Zoo. The pool, spa, exercise room and large living spaces were great allowing everyone to have their own space and freedom to move around the property and explore. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is provided for cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner. The large screen TV, wide assortment of DVD movies, pool table and books and games made for lots to do for the whole family. The only suggestions for improvement would be to have the pool heated if possible. The neighbors pitbull dog was an unwelcomed visitor on occassion which was a safety issue with our small children but we managed to keep everyone safe. We loved the place and have booked it for next year.

A great place for a family get together.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience over Christmas this year at this location. The property was exactly as described and more. We had a small issue with the heating of one of the hot tubs and the way that the alarm was set and it was handled quickly and accurately. My wife, two daughters, their significant others and my two 12 yo grand daughters enjoyed a great week.

Beautiful, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, lovely home. We had a mini-family gathering, getting together with our niece and her family. Plenty of space, plenty to keep everybody occupied. If having wifi is important to you, this might not work as it was iffy. Not being "connected" was kind if great. Message to the owners: the bathtub didn't drain properly.
