We stayed there for 10 days in early January 2016. We had 4 adults and 7 children. 6 of the children were under the age of 5. We had a great time. The pool was a little cold then but the hot tub was great for temperature. We have stayed in Mission Bay on earlier trips and this location seemed better. We ventured to Disney Land a couple days, Sea world, San Diego Zoo and Lego Land multiple time as it was only 10 minutes away. The outdoor kitchen area was great as well.

Amazing Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for an awesome family vacation and more!

Our family, including 6 adults and 4 kids (ages 3-9), spent a week at Casa de Allegra in October and were pleasantly surprised to find that the place was even more amazing than we imagined.

This place had everything! Not only the awesome amenities that are shown in the pictures, but so much more than we expected. It had the largest amount of kitchen gadgets I've ever seen in one kitchen! The garage was full of bikes, scooters, ride-on toys, beach/sand toys, boogie boards, coolers, and strollers! The pool was stocked with more toys, life jackets, goggles, and towels than we needed. With the pool, hot tub, play set, outdoor living area, and putting green we could have spent the whole week right there, but when we did leave the property the location was great! It was an easy 15 minute drive (during rush hour!) to LEGOLAND, a mile down to the beach, walking distance to Walmart, near a mall and restaurants.. so convenient!

We enjoyed so many meals outside enjoying the beautiful weather and private tropical backyard atmosphere. When we made them take a break from the pool, the kids loved playing with all of the toys, books, games in the little play room under the stairs, and all of the ride-on toys out on the huge driveway. This property was such a comfortable place to relax and have fun. It was a perfect vacation spot for our family and none of us were ready to leave when the week was up! We are definitely hoping to go back again.

Great Vacation Home - They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3-generation family so enjoyed staying at your home. We had 6 adults and 6 grandkids ranging from 1 year to 8 years old. There was enough variety of things offered at the house that none of the children were lacking of things to do. They loved the pool, the hidden room for kids, and all the toys provided. The adults loved grilling, eating, watching TV and having a fireplace outside. We all loved to watch the sunrises and enjoyed the landscaped grounds. The proximity of walking to WalMart, grocery and other stores was a blessing. We all highly recommend your wonderful house. Peters Family

Fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family(parents, sister and husband and three kids, myself, wife and our two young boys) stayed here recently while I attended a conference in San Diego. We could not have had a better experience. This house is perfect for families. My sons and their cousins had so much fun with the 'secret fort' under the stairs. My family loves to cook and we have never stayed at a rental house that had so many kitchen items(pots, pans, spices, knives, etc.) which made making dinner at home so much easier. Cannot say enough about the positives of the house from the pool, hot tub, spacious rooms, putting green, great outdoor seating, grill area, outdoor fireplace, etc. We highly recommend this house and I hope my job has another conference in the San Diego area because we hope to come back.

Fantastic house for the family

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. Beautiful inside and out with lots of attention to detail and comfort. The kids loved the pool area and never wanted to leave, and the outdoor grilling area was spectacular. Just such a relaxing place to stay.

It is also an ideal location for Legoland, local restaurants, and local beaches which was perfect for us. One thing to note is that it is quite a long drive to San Diego (about 45 + minutes depending on traffic it could be more). We had a day trip to San Diego and Coronado and that was enough for us. Overall a great stay!

Perfect family/familes getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Casa de Allegra this summer. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place for two families, with kids ranging from 22 months to 12 years old. It's not often that you find a place that works so well for everyone in terms of space, activities and safety (the pool area is fenced).

For the adults, we loved the outdoor spaces. We liked watching the kids from the area above the spa or spending the evenings in the outdoor living room. The kitchen is amazingly well-equipped and we enjoyed cooking some great meals and all of us loved eating outside. The BBQ area is great as well to hang out.

The younger girls loved sharing the Princess bedroom and the tween enjoyed having her own room too. The little play area underneath the stairs was heaven for the littlest one.

What we really appreciated was that the house is so well equipped that you didn't have to drag along much from home. Pool toys, life jackets, play pen, high chair. You name it, it was there.

We liked the bonus that we could walk to the end of the street and head down to the Walmart to grab a bit of groceries and didn't always have to get into the car. That being said, the house is situated so well that it's easy access to the I5 and close enough to enjoy Oceanside that getting anywhere was easy.

You will not be disappointed staying here and we will definitely stay here again!
