San Diego resident, and engineer by profession, I ventured into hospitality due to my passion for homes and decorating. My young daughter and I love the home, and look forward to enjoying it with family and friends for years to come!
Mesmerized, by the desert landscape with the starlight illuminating the golden sand and the moonlight enveloping the Santa Rosa Mountains, I knew that I had to share with others, the grandeur and tranquility.
I believe that Mountain View is an experience as well as a destination. With the end in mind, I wanted Mountain View to be an experience, where one could appreciate the majestic scenic beauty of the desert as well as the modern amenities of a luxurious vacation retreat.
From the picturesque setting of Mountain View, to the serene sounds of the water flowing from the spa spillways, to the gentle breeze encompassing you on the private patio, you will know that you have arrived to a special place where dreams will be realized and where memories will be formed.
Mountain View was a blank canvas when purchased in late 2007, and required much artistic direction. Orchestrating the transformation to the luxurious retreat that many have enjoyed since was a significant undertaking; one that was riddled with many challenges. However, I persevered through, to ensure that the unique experience that I had enjoyed would not be forgone. The result exceeded my own expectations. Mountain View, presently houses a spacious pool and spa, handsomely appointed furnishings, multi-faceted and themed decor as well as many modern amenities to provide guests of all ages, extreme enjoyment, comfort, entertainment and tranquility.
The efforts to integrate nature and modernity have resulted in rave reviews from the numerous guests over the past five years.
The commitment that I continue to put forth to create evergreen memories, has been consistently commented upon by guests. The Mountain View difference, is related to my firm conviction towards continuous improvements and empathy towards guests' discerning tastes. I hope that you will allow me to share with you, that which many have already experienced and coveted – pure serenity.
