Fallbrook's weather is among the finest on the planet -- at any time of the year. While San Diego averages 146 sunny days each year Fallbrook averages 264. So this really is the place to be!

Fantastic house, impeccable EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our 3-night stay at this gorgeous property and can not say enough good things about it! As soon as we entered the house, we all had the same reaction - "that's it, we're never leaving this place!" :) Really, leaving it was the hard part... We loved everything - the house itself, so large but warm and cozy at the same time... each bedroom is very tastefully designed, not to mention the comfortable mattresses. All the bathrooms were done to perfection, with high-end fixtures...and i can go on and on about the kitchen - that butcher's-block countertop stole my heart from the beginning :)) And once you step out on the impossibly-charming patio which sits atop the golf course, you are torn between wanting to stay out there for hours and wanting to go back in and enjoy the great indoors... the pool was also wonderful and we spent most of our time there, having loads of fun. Teresa, the owner, was awesome and made communication super easy, via texting. Anything we needed help with (mainly the pool/spa heating questions) was promptly addressed. Thank you again and we can't wait to come back and stay longer !!

Our stay was so great! Everything is awesome and it's perfect for my large family! They all loved the house and we enjoy every minute of our stay. We can't say enough good things from the great views, pool was awesome, quiet area, large open space and 5 bedrooms! We gather by the pool, in the kitchen and the backyard patio! Teresa is very friendly and easy to deal with. Her blog/ recommendations was great as well! We are coming back for sure!

Fantastic house! Excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful in a quiet neighborhood. We used it for a "home base" for our bicycle racing team training camp. So many good roads around Fallbrook. The house had everything we needed, pots, pans, and plenty of beds. The house is well equipped even had a live netflix account. So nice! Thank you Teresa!

Over and beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from our stay at Teresa's Fallbrook rental, and we are already missing the pool and spa! Of we could have stayed another half a day, it would have been perfect! Next time I'll need to ask for a later check out.

There were 11 of us including a baby, and there were beds for everyone with room to spare. The house is fully stocked with every amenity provided (from hair dryers and irons to coffee bean grinders and stand mixers). We spent most of our time either in the pool or in the kitchen around the beautiful, oversized butcher block counter. I only wish there were more bar stools to accommodate everyone around the kitchen table.

The rooms were well appointed and clean as were the bathrooms. All our guests said they slept comfortably. The ac is nice, but the temperature in the house stays cool, so we didn't really need it. During the day, we opened the windows and front door and had a nice breeze through the house. At night, we'd close some of the doors to minimize the noise, and we made good use of the trivial pursuit game provided in the den.

The Fallbrook area itself is cute and quiet. We went to a wedding up in the hills with beautiful views. The house sits on a defunct golf course, which basically extends the outdoor area to a much larger "backyard". I went running through the golf course and saw many neighbors walking their dogs. Everyone was very friendly.

Finally, corresponding with Teresa was so easy. Any time we had questions, she would respond to text messages right away. She let us check in an hour early, which was really nice, and after we got settled, she made sure we had everything we needed. Everyone really enjoyed the short time we spent here, so thank you, Teresa, for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: So glad this very nice group enjoyed the house and the area. We have something special here in Fallbrook. Yes, the golf course is closed but now we have open space out back and we are all enjoying it, walking, jogging on it and running our dogs. The land has been sold and will transform this winter to a vineyard and wedding venue. The restaurant and bar will be completely redone. We are very excited since it will be absolutely beautiful. For now, however, it is very quiet, a very pretty valley with lots of oaks and sycamores, lots of birds and wildlife. We love it here. Our home has views over the treetops and to the hills and sunsets. We have two other golf courses within 5 minutes of the house so we still can golf all winter. Come and visit soon!

Inviting home with a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a retreat for a professional organization that we held at this beautiful home. There were 17 of us during the day and 12 that stayed one night, and we found that the premises fit us nicely.

Teresa was extremely helpful and flexible with the arrangements we were making. One of our members forgot his keys at the house, and Teresa was gracious enough to mail them back!

All in all, this was a great place and we would definitely stay again!
