Why Jim Plant chose San Diego County

San Diego is truly America's finest city and Ranch Bernardo is the sweetest spot in San Diego's North County. It's quiet upscale lifestyle is centrally located to all that's available for quality living in Southern California's enviable year round mild climate.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the deck in the late afternoon and enjoying the quiet view of the golf course and it's surrounding greenery brings a sense of peace and the thought that, 'yep, all's right with the world, at least for now'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Time passed all too quickly as we thoroughly enjoyed our eight weeks in Jim Plant’s very comfortable and fully equipped condo. Amenities included large screen TV’s, entertainment system, full kitchen facilities, washer, dryer, etc. The condo is ideally located abutting a golf course, close to shopping and entertainment facilities, within walking distance of a winery and farmers’ market, yet is very private. The owner is most congenial and meticulous in ensuring that guests’ expectations are exceeded. I rate the condo with five stars--- a great place to unwind and enjoy life.

Jim's condo is fully equipped, spotlessly clean, highly updated, and is right on the golf course.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second March we have spent at Jim Plant's condo and we already have reservations for March, 2017. Jim has a number of repeat guests. The reasons are many. The condo is fully equipped so that all you need is to bring yourself and personal food. We do a bit of gourmet cooking and find every utensil we need. There were replacement bulbs for night lights and we even found batteries we needed in an emergency to power a grandchild's cute Easter bunny. The condo is spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable, and living room furniture perfect for relaxing and for watching the very large flat screen tv. There are two outdoor living spaces. Over looking the golf course is a large deck with BBQ and there is a private courtyard with flowers and comfortable chairs. Available for your use is a very nice community center with pool. For any questions or needs that arise Jim is totally available to assist. As a bonus the neighbors are really friendly and you are walking distance to Rancho Bernardo Winery with it's fun little shops and Friday farmer's market. We are already looking forward to next March!

Home away from home

My husband and I have just spent 7 weeks in the condo listed here. We were very happy with the condo. It is well furnished and very comfortable. The owner met us there and gave us a run through of the place and was always available if we needed assistance with anything. The condo is as listed, nicely updated, and very well equipped with plenty of dishes, glasses, etc. We enjoyed the view over the golf course and both played the course many times which is a well kept executive size course. We played many courses in the area as this location is fabulous for golf. We also enjoyed very much driving to the coast, about 30 minutes of pleasant driving. We loved walking the beaches in La Jolla, Encinitas, Oceanside; Carlsbad and going into San Diego to do some of the sites there. The weather was perfect. We did have some hot days but mostly sunny and mild 70 degree days. We would certainly visit again.

Owner's Response: We would certainly visit again. That's the objective, to have great guests enjoying my condo, it's immediate surroundings, the nearby beaches, the climate, and all that San Diego has to offer. And, wanting to return. It's my pleasure to be part of the positive San Diego experience.

Wonderful condo experience at Oaks North!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is on the golf course at Oaks North with a beautiful view of the 7th fairway.

Unit is as pictured, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Jim is a fantastic host, well-organized and available if needed. Unit has all the kitchen supplies you should need for your stay. Patio/deck provides a lovely outdoor seating area to watch the golfers and a nice backdrop for the evening cocktail. We also used it for dining. It is convenient to grocery, shopping, restaurants and the freeway. We would definitely stay at one of his properties in the future.

Exceptional Experience

  • 5 of 5

This unit is in a wonderful location on the golf course in a 55+ community. A spacious outdoor area allows peaceful views of the 7th fairway and the surrounding geography. The golf center is just a short drive away, across the parking lot from the community center's lovely pool and activity building. If one person wants to golf and the other desires an afternoon at the pool, no transportation worries! The condo itself is very well equipped and furnished, and the owner is organized, available, and proudly takes care of this property. A real pleasure on every criteria.
