The Owner purchased this house in 1999
Everyone loves Lake San Marcos. This neighborhood is well established and every home has great curb appeal. The residents are friendly and from all over the world. They seek the special climate of Lake San Marcos. Lakes are not plentiful in Southern California. This lake is popular with paddle boats and other small boats.
Sunshine in the morning, no coastal fog. A little drier climate than the coast. Yet, it is only a 20 minute drive to the ocean and marina.
In short, I LOVED that waterbed, I want to get EXACTLY
the same features as that bed. My back hasn't felt that good when waking
up in many years.
My wife and I spent two weeks here before and during the Christmas holiday visiting our daughter who lives in Lake San Marcos. The location is lovely, on the golf course tucked out of harms way. Very relaxing sitting on the patio watching the golfing world go by.
The house, however, really needs improvements and maintenance. While most everything was functional, virtually the whole house is from the 70's. Also, on arrival, we found many of the lights in the ceiling, table and floor lamps didn't work, and styrofoam inserts in the front window by the door, as well as in the master bedroom, I assume to help insulate the place. A few days into the rental, we had an invasion of ants in one of the bathrooms. The owner had to call the cleaning lady to deal with it.
After that, the rest of the vacation seemed to flow OK. However, after I returned home, I didn't receive my deposit back in a timely manner, and had to call several times to find out where it was. When I did finally receive it, $17 was deducted because we used "excessive electricity" (for 2 weeks). Now we're a couple who are well aware of turning off lights. We keep the nighttime temperature to 67 deg, and generally are environmentally conscious. But, somehow, we used 'excessive electricity". So beware of nitpicking, and I'm guessing you'll have a good visit.
We just spent March in this home. The place was nice but lacked supplies, such as wash clothes, soap. We had read reviews ahead of time so knew to bring soap with us. It was unusually cold for the first week or so. We had to use the heat almost daily, consequently, they deducted $35.00 from our refund. We did enjoy our stay. the house is lovely but does need work done on it. Bring sweaters or sweatshirts to wear so you don't have to use heat.
We recently spent Christmas and more at this cozy home on the golf course. Although we are not golfers, it was relaxing to watch them on the green from the livingroom sofa. The description and photos of this house are accurate, and we found the owners to be lovely people. All rooms are spacious, and the patio was our favorite spot for lunch and reading as we had sun until mid-afternoon. This was one of the coldest winters in San Diego County, but we managed to stay warm here.
The location of this community was perfect for us and provides easy access to Rancho Santa Fe Road, San Marcos Boulevard (Restaurant Row and Las Posas shopping center), Palomar Airport Road (to the Carlsbad Outlets) and the I78. We like to take walks and do mild hiking and discovered that San Marcos has some very nice parks and trails. The neighborhood is great for walking, as many people do. In addition, the planned community of San Elijo Hills is a short distance away with its large park and trail system.
Lake San Marcos is undergoing many improvements now, with a senior living community almost ready to open and the hotel being totally renovated. We can only imagine how lively it will be on that side of the lake in a few months. This neighborhood, however, is behind the lake and consists of older homes that are gradually turning over and being renovated. The owner of this house has long-range plans for improvements, too. All in all, we were happy to have stayed here and met Birgit, Hans and Horst!
This place was very nice. Clean, nice furnishings, plenty of kitchen items for cooking. It is not very welcoming, however. I expect basic items like fresh soap and T.P. to be included as part of the rental cost. It was expected that T.P. be replaced. We had to hunt for a hidden bar of used soap. A welcoming binder of information about local attractions, or book for travelers to write about their stay, would make it more appealing. The owner is friendly, but very strict about arrival and departure times! Easier check in would be appreciated as well.
As promised by the manager, this place was perfect for our family vacation to Northern San Diego. The property was very clean and well maintained. The view of the golf course from the living room is gorgeous. It's only 15 minutes to Legoland and 20 to Carlsbad's beaches. There are several grocery stores nearby and lots of yummy restaurants close too. We would absolutely stay here again! Oh - and the fresh lemons and oranges on the trees out front were delicious!
Lake San Marcos is located between Carlsbad and Escondido in Southern California. The lake is a private 80 acre, fishing license is not required.
