About Prima

Family is important to us. The house, the pool, the water slide, the play house, the built-in barbecue and the outdoor kitchen are designed for multi-generational families to use and to have fun and to play as our family have had in the past. Since our oldest son and his wife and our 4 lovely grandchildren moved to another state, we found that this property is much too large for just the two of us now. Upon listening and reading reviews of our guests as they share with us how much they've enjoyed the property---where they can all gather together in one place and enjoy each other's company---had given us much satisfaction. After all, our original vision that this beautiful property, be a gathering place for many families to find their own special place of comfort and retreat had come to fruition... We also travel a bit and we feel enriched meeting people from different cultures BUT most of all, we truly love meeting our guests who come from all over the world to stay and experience Bella~Tranquila Estate!!! Our Heartfelt thank you to all our former guests and to 'you'-- our future guests!

Prima purchased this estate in 2003

Why Prima chose Escondido

Valley Center is a special place in San Diego County, tucked away up on the hills where we breathe a sigh of relief the moment we drive up the grade on Valley Center Road. We have wide spaces between the houses, many are on 2 acres and more. Avocados, citrus and ornamental plants are grown in some parts of our town. Here, we can be as private as we wish to be and/or we can be small town folks where the neighbors wave as we stroll around our neighborhood.

Valley Center has an equestrian trail where you need not dismount if you were to cross the street while riding your horse--the street lights have push buttons at horse's height.

The movie stars who used to ride their horses around Valley Center such as John Wayne, and many others would have approved on how beautiful the town turned out to be.

What makes this estate unique

The salt water pool / slide of course had given us great enjoyment for our family and our 5 grand children during the summer months. The views are outstanding from both front and back of the house. To observe the numerous birds that fly above and those that roam around the property is seeing nature at its best; for example we have a resident owl that claims the back yard as his/her territory. You may hear it at night or early mornings go cuckoo, cuckoo... We often see hawks hover overhead in search of prey. Valley Center has few street lights so on clear moonless nights, we could see countless stars and the constellations.

We love the rural setting but close to the city atmosphere.

We have fresh clean air to breath.

The people of Valley Center are very friendly and the town is known for its small town charm.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed every moment spent at the house. From the moment we arrived at the property and were greeted by Joel and Prima everything was perfect. Pictures simply cannot do justice to the backyard, pool, and view of the mountains. Looking forward to coming back again in the future!

Amazing views, well kept home, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to meet for a memory making vacation for my mom's 70th birthday, and we are definitely glad we chose this location. There were 7 of us, including 2 kids, and we all had a wonderful time. The grounds are so inviting and relaxing even my husband who usually wants to get out and sightsee every moment could barely bring himself to leave the amazing pool and terrific views. Above all else the hosts were so gracious and so accommodating, and very accessible when we needed to contact them. THe location is perfect and we were able to visit a winery, Disneyland, and take a tour of downtown San Diego during our stay with ease. The kids loved the water slide (not gonna lie, I did too!) and the play area.

A big thank you to Joel and Prima for being such gracious hosts, you helped make my mom's birthday very special and we appreciate it so much.

This is the place you want to be...and never leave

  • 5 of 5

I spent hours finding the perfect place to stay in the area. So, if you are beginning your search, search no further, this property is the place you want to be. The pictures are beautiful, but the backyard and view are even more breathtaking in person. The home is up on a hill in a gated community overlooking the mountain range. We arrived with plans of all the things that we wanted to do in the area, but as soon as you step into the home and the backyard paradise, you seriously do not want to leave. No joke. We rearranged our plans so we could have more time just hanging out and relaxing at the home. We stayed with 4 adults and 4 kids with the youngest being 2 years of age and had plenty of room plus some. The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. They really make you feel right at home. They helped me with some rearranging to baby proof for my 2-year old and the home had door alarms that you could turn on and upper locks for the doors to the pool area, which was a huge relief for me since we were staying with a small child. I rarely write reviews, but had to for this place as I immensely enjoyed my time spent at this property and just wanted to buy the home by the end of our stay. You will not regret renting this home.

Notes:
Many of our guests have said that coming to our country vacation home, 'Bella~Tranquila'--is truly a place of comfort and retreat-- the house, the pool, the water slide and the gardens have given them so much peace and tranquility that they have returned over and over again. 'Bella~Tranquila' is in the country but only five minutes away from/ to the city of Escondido.
