Let's start with the negatives, which there are few and doable. To start is the location is in El Cajon which is about a 20 to 30 minute ride via I8/I5 back into San Diego attractions and beaches. It is an easy drive unless it is rush hour, but not bad even then.
Finding the house the first time is a challenge even with GPS because of the road, Monterrey is a private road, and not marked. Once you find it, OK. The road up to the house is steep and not in good shape. Could use some patching. When you go, stop at the front door and unload before you go up the hill to park by the garage/stable.
OK now the positives. The house is very nice with a nice open living/kitchen/dinning area. Large HD TV with 5.1 Surround, great hardwood floors, comfortable furniture. Both bedrooms are nice, first bedroom bed (east) is a bit on the firm side, master bedroom with bathroom bed is fine. The view is stunning as it is right on top of the hill. From the front porch you look to the North and East with a great view of the valley and mountains. Off the back porch a great view of the Mountains.
If you are into outdoor cooking, the house has a great gas grill with side burners. All brand new. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need including a good selection of spices. The owner also provides bottled water and popcorn.
I would recommend this place to family and friends. Jesse the owner is very nice and great communication. One do not miss place to eat is TRES Taqueria Mariscos Cantina. It is a small taco shop, inexpensive and fantastic taco, burritos and killer breakfast burritos. We ate there 3 times in our 7-day stay. So if you do not mind the El Cajon location go for it.
