Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was really paradise house. That was my second time renting this house and was in a very great condition. everything was great: the house, the seen, the whether, and more. The owner was really admitted to what he promised. I texted him to ask him about some points in the house, and he was very fast to answer my questions. I would definitely rent this house for the third time in the future.

Comfort with a view.

  • 5 of 5

The house was pristine upon our arrival. You can tell the owners put some real effort into making this place easy to relax in. With each room having its own bath room, it's great for getting everyone ready to go out to the local attractions. The kitchen was fully furnished, with everything easy to find for dinner each night, and my wife wanted to bring their stove home with her. With all the views from every side of the house, there was an abundance of seating, and right at the top of the hill beside the house, there is a sunset worth making sure your there for. And unlike most of the places we've been to in California, the few neighbors we met were great. And one of them even saved the day when a family members car broke down. I'd like to say thanks again to the owners, for your accommodations, that surpassed anyone else we've rented from, and to Bryan for helping us make sure our whole family made it back home.

Overall A Nice Place To Stay

  • 4 of 5

Let's start with the negatives, which there are few and doable. To start is the location is in El Cajon which is about a 20 to 30 minute ride via I8/I5 back into San Diego attractions and beaches. It is an easy drive unless it is rush hour, but not bad even then.

Finding the house the first time is a challenge even with GPS because of the road, Monterrey is a private road, and not marked. Once you find it, OK. The road up to the house is steep and not in good shape. Could use some patching. When you go, stop at the front door and unload before you go up the hill to park by the garage/stable.

OK now the positives. The house is very nice with a nice open living/kitchen/dinning area. Large HD TV with 5.1 Surround, great hardwood floors, comfortable furniture. Both bedrooms are nice, first bedroom bed (east) is a bit on the firm side, master bedroom with bathroom bed is fine. The view is stunning as it is right on top of the hill. From the front porch you look to the North and East with a great view of the valley and mountains. Off the back porch a great view of the Mountains.

If you are into outdoor cooking, the house has a great gas grill with side burners. All brand new. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need including a good selection of spices. The owner also provides bottled water and popcorn.

I would recommend this place to family and friends. Jesse the owner is very nice and great communication. One do not miss place to eat is TRES Taqueria Mariscos Cantina. It is a small taco shop, inexpensive and fantastic taco, burritos and killer breakfast burritos. We ate there 3 times in our 7-day stay. So if you do not mind the El Cajon location go for it.

Owner's Response: Derek thank you for your feedback. As you stated the road is a private and needs work, the good news is all neighbors have agreed pitch in to fix the road. The project ECD is June 2016. To all future travelers road is still accessible it just has large pot holes. Unit will be reserved (made unavailable for reservation) when work is being done. Location: Yes the home is in east San Diego, guest will need a car. I am expanding recommended list of restaurants, areas of interest and discount cards. I am dedicated to improve guest stay based on feedback. Sincerely, Jess Espinoza

Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My best friend and I stayed here while doing a training in Lakeside, CA. Our host was very helpful, but not intrusive. . .a great combination! It felt like a nice quiet escape from an intense training/workshop in Lakeside, CA. It's just far enough away from SD to feel like you're out of the noise and business of the city. It's also just close enough that you can get downtown in less than 30 minutes (I think the airport was only about 25 minute away). Only feedback I would give to our host, is that the house could have been a little cleaner. . .nothing too crazy, just not the kind of spotless you might expect from a hotel or B&B. Big bedrooms (with an ensuite in the main bedroom), great living area with a huge TV and all the streaming options, and lovely kitchen that was great for cooking at home if you're in the mood. Also, very close to many restaurants. Overall, great stay. Thanks:)
