About Carrie Wilhite

In my life before kids, I was a special events professional! I love having fun and now I've found a way to share that with others - stay in my home and have the vacation of a lifetime with your family and friends!

Carrie Wilhite purchased this house in 2001

Why Carrie Wilhite chose Oceanside

We lived in this amazing oasis for 6 years! Oceanside is a terrific beach town and is central to everything you could want to do in San Diego or Orange County!

This VRBO is exactly what it looks like in the pictures, description and reviews - IDEAL! Halfway between San Diego and Anaheim, with outlet shopping in Carlsbad and close proximity to a great beach right in Oceanside. We traveled from Canada with 8 adults, 4 toddlers and a newborn. We spent some time at attractions, but also spent alot of time at the house for meals and a couple pool days. Not once did it ever feel like there was not enough room for all of us. In fact, we didn't even use the front room or formal dining, as the kitchen area was so spacious, and we dined outside on the beautiful patio. With the Walmart just down the path for shopping ( like a 3 minute walk), we were able to find whatever we needed, but almost everything was already at the house anyway, right down to steak spice. There is not enough room here for me to list all the things that made staying here such a successful and enjoyable part of a multi-family vacation. IT was clean, bright, warm, comfortable. If i had the money to spare, i would have made a serious offer on the place so i could return to it any time i wanted. That is not an exaggeration, its a conversation my wife and I had when we were there, and after we got home. Again, this place is EXACTLY what it looks like on this posting. No trick photography to make it look bigger than it is. SO enjoyable, can't say it enough. We'll be going back next time we head to the area, couldn't be soon enough.

We stayed at this property in February 2016 for 7 days and absolutely loved it. The property was HUGE with excellent amenities, including the backyard, and all the kids stuff. There were 5 adults and 1 toddler, and we had way more than enough space. We paid for pool heat, since it was "winter" but this didn't seem to heat the pool much (was still a bit cool). We used the hot tub every night though and it was PERFECT. The toy room was a BIG HIT with our 18 month old, and the house was well equipped with baby stuff (high chair, baby gates, etc), which allowed us to have at least a slight bit of freedom. The backyard was absolutely stunning. Overall, a great place to visit - we would definitely recommend to others and stay again if we ever go back to San Diego area. Thank you! :)

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.
