BEAUTIFUL SPACIOUS MODEL QUALITY HOME IN QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD IN SANTA FE HILLS

San Marcos House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful spacious model quality home in quiet neighborhood in Santa Fe Hills

Gorgeous, fully furnished two-story open concept home with spacious rooms. The home has a beautiful kitchen with modern stainless steal appliances (Refrigerator, Microwave, Stove, Toaster, Mixer), granite counter tops and new cabinetry. Hot water for drinks is available at the touch of a finger with an instant hot faucet. The family room is large and has a 46-inch LCD TV, including cable and a Wii Gaming System with games. For those that can’t get away from work, there is an office located next to the family room with a printer/FAX, phone and Wi-Fi (allows access to the internet anywhere in the house). A laundry room and bathroom are located near the office and three-car garage. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms; a master suite, a game room (books, Legos, toys) and a large bonus room with an additional large screen LCD TV, including cable.

In addition to being spacious, the home has views of the surrounding hills and mountains and is located on a quiet street with easy access to the 78 freeway and local Sprinter train station. The home shows like a model home. It has a grand entry, a pergola and patio cover, a small fountain and custom gas grill in the backyard. This vacation home offers you the choice to just relax and enjoy the quiet, beautiful area, take walks to the local park and children's play area, or enjoy the neighborhood recreational facilities which include a large pool, tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball court, and baseball fields. Or, you can simply bike, roller-blade, or take leisurely walk around the scenic neighborhood. If you're the active type, you are only 1.75 miles from the 78 Freeway and all that San Diego, Temecula and the beaches have to offer. Shopping, movie theaters, casual and fine dining can be found 2 to 2.6 miles away (Nordstrom’s Rack, Ross, Sprouts Grocery Store, Elephant Bar Restaurant, Old California Restaurant Row to name a few). Additional shopping can be done at the Carlsbad Outlet Stores or one of the two malls located on the 78 Freeway and I-15 Freeway about 12 miles away. All the hot sites and attractions are easily accessible via freeway or train. LegoLand, Carlsbad and Oceanside Beaches, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are 12 to 15 miles away. Balboa Park, SeaWorld, Sea Port Village, Old Town, Gas Lamp District and the San Diego Zoo are only 39 miles south of San Marcos. Disneyland is an easy 75 minute ride North (72 miles) via the 78 Freeway and then the I-5 Freeway. Temecula’s Old Town, wine country, and golfing are only 34 miles to the North on the I-15 Freeway.

About Terry Woodcock

I am a retired Software Engineer that worked for Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon for 31 years. I grew up in Southern California where I went to school and got my Masters Degree in Computer Science. I currently live with my wife and son in Murrieta California, which is located about 30 to 40 minutes to the North of San Marcos. When my wife retires in the next 4 to 5 years, we plan to move back to our home in San Marcos.

Terry Woodcock purchased this house in 1999

Why Terry Woodcock chose San Marcos

I have lived near the ocean my entire life. I grew up in the cooler more cloudy conditions found at the beach. When we bought this home we decided to move inland a little to get more sun. Since It is only 12 miles from the beach, it gets ocean breezes late in the day. However, because it is located away from the beach and up against the hills the sun comes out sooner and stays longer. The home is also centrally located near the 78 and I-15 freeways and was half way between our two jobs. I drove South down the I-15 to San Diego and my wife drove North to Murrieta.

What makes this house unique

The features of the area that attracted us to this home are the tree lined streets, recreational parks and local parks. The reason we pick this particular home was because it was on a hill. The fill gave us greater separation from our neighbors and great views of the surrounding hills out our back door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much. We loved staying and enjoyed your home very much. It was a perfect fit for our meeds for our much needed family vacation. Hopefully we will return some day

Wonderful time, house, location!

  • 5 of 5
The property is located in a very nice and safe area, close to various tourist attractions. The house is well equipped, clean and includes an intimate patio, a great back yard equipped with all fixtures for BBQ and dinning. The owner is very friendly and helpful. You can park the car inside the garage so you don't have to worry about parking. The house has all the fixtures and is in an amazing and clean condition. All together we had a great experience and we will go back for sure. We strongly recommend this property.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
We had the good fortune of spending a long vacation in this house. It is a very nice upscale and large home. That being said we spent most of our time when at the house in the backyard enjoying the beautiful weather. The location is in a quiet part of SoCal but we were within 20 minutes of beaches in Carlsbad and Oceanside or Legoland for the smaller children. We were an easy just over an hour drive to Disneyland as well.
So we had the best of all worlds. It is a very very comfortable house with ample amenities while there and very quiet. It's also within a mile or two of many restaurants and groceries. But we were very close by car to all of the entertainment that Southern California has to offer. Loved our time there and hope to get a chance to go back.

Excellent Rental Property

  • 5 of 5
You really can't go wrong renting this house. The owners were helpful, friendly and very organized. The house was clean, comfortable and really well stocked. The description of the house is accurate but understated. We found many more conveniences than were listed in the description. No qualms about recommending it to friends or family, and would happily rent it again should we be in the area in the future.

Fabulous home for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best homes we have ever rented (and we are very particular people)! Terry is great to work with and does some extra little things like fresh fruit & lemons to make lemonade! House has plenty of space for everyone, we had our 3 & 7 year old, parents & brother which worked great with 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms! Very clean & well kept. Enjoyed evenings in the back yard with the built-in grill & gas fire. Spectacular views! Nice running trails. Easy drive to San Diego where we went several times for various things, 20 minutes to Moonlight State Beach (Terry has beach bag, towels & sand toys), great for kids & Disneyland just 1 hour 15 minutes north! My only complaint is that I didn't bring warmer clothes for the evenings when the sun went down : ) Thanks for everything Terry!
