... A Real Treasure ...

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure to enjoy this beautiful Lake San Marcos property on 2 occasions, both for 2 consecutive months. The home is a gem, in a quiet, beautiful setting. Fine furnishings and decor. Lovely neighbours, too. Our delightful recreation on the HydroBikes was very unique, pedaling the lake viewing swans, pelicans, egrets, and other wildlife. On rare, rainy days we spent time at the pool table in the sunroom. We even became pizza chefs, learning to excel with the outdoor pizza oven. Just relaxing on the beautiful outdoor deck was a favourite way to spend a few hours. We most appreciated the friendly home owners, who responded quickly and favourably to any questions or concerns. Their wish to ensure we were happy with our stay was evident. Very comfortable beds and a generously supplied kitchen were most welcomed.

The home is in close proximity to all San Diego has to offer ... Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and all its museums, the USS Midway, Point Loma, Coronado, and beautiful beaches. A drive north to San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, and Long Beach were highlights, too. We would not hesitate to consider another wonderful vacation here, and are grateful for this treasure! Thank you, Noreen & Nuch.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Best location in Lake San Marco's. The owners are very accommodating and very easy to work with and always readily available. They maintain the house in beautiful condition and it has everything you will need to be comfortable. The boats and the water bikes and the ping-pong table and pool table were added bonuses. My family had many enjoyable hours in this home. We rented two years in a row 3 months the first time in six months the second time. We liked it here so much that we ended up buying a home here at beautiful Lake San Marco's and selling our home in Arizona. We are avid golfers and the use of the golf cart to play St. Mark was an added bonus. The neighbors were terrific and this location was very very quiet.

This was our 30 day dream vacation. We are in our 70's, so from the start we got into a daily routine. (that's what we do). First I would start early by brewing the coffee and then walk 15 feet to go fishing off our dock (and I caught some big fish), while my husband "caught up" on the stock market. (That was a pun..lolol) Next we would have a leisurely breakfast on the sunporch reading the San Diego paper while watching all the wildlife swim by. Then we would take the hydro-bikes out for our hour spin around the lake to see what was going on.

New docks were being installed, the restaurant is being remodeled, all things that we both liked watching the progress of because my husband was a custom home builder for 50 years. After our return I would start thinking about packing our lunch, which always included one beer and one glass of wine, bad habit, but only on vacation. (: Then we would launch the boat and go to the middle of the lake, put the boat in neutral, drift and listen to the quiet, all while having a wonderful lunch and spotting bald eagles and other wildlife. Then we would take a lazy 90 minute cruise around the lake, taking turns driving, is that what you call it? Back to the house.... and I must say we became very proficient at docking that 16' boat. Then we would relax, take a nap, read or do some shopping.

The home has everything you need to relax, cook, & entertain; with the pool table, pizza oven.. oh and did I mention the view? And if you're really lucky you will get to see the pelicans do their nightly victory dance right in front of the house. If you want to know what that is I guess you will have to just rent the house to find out. Don't hesitate to make this your next vacation destination.... you won't regret it.

Best Birthday Gift in 88 years!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Noreen and Carmen,

If losing a re election means more time to live in your incomparable

lakehouse, then you are the big winners.

This, my dad's birthday month, we had a beautiful lakeside home to have my brother and his family from San Francisco and my cousin from Portland come and visit.

Our month here has been almost transformative for my folks.

My dad on his 88th birthday seemed 15 years younger in his demeanor and

stamina. Visiting the lakehouse everyday (except MOndays...their casino

day) energized both Mom and Dad. Dad fished from the comfort of a chair.

And Mom enjoyed watching her sacred basketball finals on the TVs.

I don't have a TV at my own house so just visiting me and watching TV was a big deal for the folks.

I also don't have a grill or crushed ice and having access to those was

such a treat for us!

Thank you again for letting us rent your was a month of

memories for my whole family.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lake front home was beautiful from the moment we walked in. We loved the hydrobikes and the pool table. It was centrally located to grocery store, Del Mar racetrack, beach and grocery stores. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this home for your next vacation in the San Diego area!

So Quiet and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this wonderful home for 10 weeks after we sold our house and waited for our son to graduate from high school. It has everything you can possibly want or image - it is truly all inclusive. The location is perfect - close to Restaurant Row where there must be 20 different restaurants and a large movie complex. The house is really beautically decorated. The bedrooms are large, comfortable and the linens wonderful. There is everything you could possibly want in the kitchen from dinners, pans, glassware and appliances. and We spent most of our time in the sun room. It is so peaceful and quiet - sipping a glass of wine and watching all the wild life right outside. The swans, the ducks, the birds - so relaxing. The TV's are all HD and there is a remote that makes working them a breeze! We enjoyed the pool table along with our kids and their friends. The Koi pond is really neat and we enjoyed watch the fish and feeding them. We had several friends stop by and evey one of them was envious and stated they wanted to move to Lake San Marcos! All the comforts of home. All you need is a toothbrush! You will really enjoy staying here and Noreen and Nuch were always available to answer any question.- they were great. We can't wait to come back!

An Electracraft 16 ft Pontoon Boat & HYDROBIKES are tied up at the private dock right outside the back door. All this is waiting for you to go enjoy a 'Super Date' with a companion to the lake side restaurants, or Just a leisurely cruise the Lake with your favorite beverage. When you have finished boating you can relax on the lake side patio. This vacation luxury home is complete with newly constructed Sunroom. It is furnished with a professional model fully equipped pool/billiards table, and retractable wall mounted 42' high definition Flat Screen TV. This home is a wonderful place to share and entertain friends or just enjoy the quiet, peaceful, solitude of lakeside living. Just be careful Lake San Marcos can be addicting, from fast paced fun to serene afternoons curled up with a great read, you'll love the life style and want to return.
