A FAMILY REUNION TO REMEMBER
Rented the Villa from June 24-30 with our three grown children and their families to celebrate our 50-year wedding anniversary. The five bedrooms were perfect to accommodate everyone (16) and we designated the bunk bedroom for the exclusive use of the boys (6: 9-18 years), while the younger girls (2: 5 and 6 years) shared their respective parent's bedrooms . Without a doubt the location and pool were a huge hit for everyone, especially the kids. They lived in the pool!! With the pool area located away from the house, noise was not a problem. In fact, the Villa's location is overall very peaceful, due to the somewhat remote location. We used the B-B-Q and the rather large covered patio for meals which, with the abundant tables and chairs, worked very well. The large lawn area served as a football field for the annual cousin's super-bowl football game - it worked beautifully!
We took the opportunity to play some golf at nearby Eagle Crest and The Vineyard courses and were able to get right on each course during the week without reserved tee times (for you golfers, that's a real plus). The children took trips to LEGOLAND and Sea World, which are within easy driving distance from the Villa. There is plenty to do in San Diego and the surrounding area, including wine tasting at a nearby winery.
The Villa is not air conditioned but despite the 80's plus temperature days, inside temperatures remained comfortable. Fans (provided) were needed at times though. Along with all the positives, there were some areas that needed attention during our stay. Perhaps they may be addressed by now, but the washing machine did not agitate, resulting in a trip to the local laundry. Also, some faucets and the sliding door screen were inoperable. Nothing major, just inconveniences. The Villa is in a unique setting with a lot of rustic charm, including the horse and chickens, which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. The tree swing was also a big hit.
We couldn't have picked a more ideal place to have our reunion. The owners were very pleasant, accommodating and responsive to our requests and questions. The kids still talk about their experience and we wouldn't hesitate to rent the Villa again.

Owner's Response: Many of the benefits of being able to provide a place like Villa Rancho San Pasqual is the reviews from our guest that make you want to Smile. Thank you for taking the time to send your review, and we are very happy you had an amazing time! Thank you for your understanding when the washing machine agitator malfunctioned, and the little wheel on the screen door came off. We appreciate your notification very much and, yes, the washing machine was removed and replaced by a new washing machine, as well as the little wheel on the screen door. It is essential to us to recognize our guests needs, and stay consistent in providing that experience to everyone that stays there. Hope to see you back very soon.
