Conveniently located 5 minutes from world famous beaches and a 5 minutes drive to the Del Mar fair grounds, home of the famous Del Mar races.
Where to start? This is a real family home. There's not a room in the house that's not cozy and comfortable. We were 17 people, including 2 toddlers. So much space....one morning I came down from the second floor, thinking I was the first one up, and there were 11 people in the kitchen, eating and laughing. No noise carried upstairs! The beds are ridiculously comfortable. The kids adored the basketball court, and they went out picking fruit in the beautiful groves, There's lots of room to together, and all sorts of places to be off on your own. We had a fabulous pizza chef (San Diego Pizza Co.) and ate all our dinners outside. The kids loved the pool...So will you. The owner is lovely and helpful, and I'd book this home again in a minute. Five stars is all they'd let me give....I'd have given more!
The house was just the right size for our large family reunion. The house, and guest house, comfortably fit all of us. There was plenty of room and activities to do...but we hardly left the pool and kitchen! We weren't sure about space for our groceries, but between the large chef's kitchen fridge and bar fridge, we never ran into a problem. Almost anything you'd need is right around the corner (shops, beach, golf, etc.). Rebecca was most helpful and responsive from the day we considered staying here through the days after we left. This was definitely the right choice for our family.
We had a great time. The house was perfect for our family of 7 couples and our elderly mom. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and cooking supplies and plates, silverware, etc. The pool and spa were very nice. The beds were very comfortable but they were too high. It would be good to have one bedroom and bathroom that is better for an elderly person. It is a really gorgeous place.
This property is beautifully maintained and has all the amenities away from home needed for comfort and then some! Every member of our family numbering 23, aged 4 to 83, was delighted!
We held our family reunion (19 people) at Rancho Del Fresco Jul 16-23, 2016. The house and property was as the description and pictures reflected – well appointed, spacious and beautiful. The bedrooms were comfortable and each had an adjoining bathroom which provided necessary privacy. The kitchen was a dream....large and spacious. A review to ensure availability of common cooking utensils would be recommended. We experienced a few issues with some of the pool features and remote control which was ‘promptly’ addressed by the owner. The weather was beautiful and we were able to eat all meals outside on the large patio that had lots of seating and table space. The property is located centrally making it easy to get to the attractions the family was interested in - Legoland, Sea World, Mission Bay, beaches – Pacific and Cardiff- by-the- Sea. In addition, we caught the ‘Coaster’ for a quick trip into San Diego to catch a Padres/SF Giants baseball game. In the evenings we took advantage of some of the property features and held volleyball, basketball and ping pong tournaments. The family was unanimous - this is a great property and perfect for large gatherings and family reunions. We would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.
There were 17 of us, and we used the main house and the guest house. Everyone raved about how comfortable everything was. I've never slept as well as I did there. We didn’t even need air conditioning because of the beautiful breeze off the ocean and she was right!
All of us sat in the living room one night playing games and it felt like we were at home. So relaxed, so cozy, so informal and lovely and felt like we'd lived there forever.
The kitchen is stocked with every appliance and accoutrement known to man. Julia Child couldn't have outfitted it better.
The outside of this home is outrageous. Lush fruit trees everywhere you look. The kids went picking fruit and came back laden with oranges and lemons and lord knows what else.
The kids and their fathers played basketball, and had fooze ball and ping ping contests, while others used the tire swing and hammock and just lazed the time away.
The patio was the piece de resistance for us. Incredible, we had all our dinners out there. Heavenly. We had a private pizza chef, who made the best pizza any of us have ever had.
The pool area is as terrific as it looks in the pictures.
This is like being at a five star resort without strangers around. It was a marvelous experience and I'd rent their home again in a split second if I were to come I back to San Diego.
Don't think twice. It's a great vacation!
