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 !!

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. The golf course is now open space out back and we are all enjoying it. The land is in the process of being sold, currently in escrow. It may be restored to a golf course this winter or transformed into a vineyard, we are not sure yet, depends on the new owner's plans. Whatever it becomes, it will be beautiful and even now, it is very quiet and 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. 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!

Wedding Weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for the wedding weekend. It was close to the venue, so we could relax by the pool and enjoy lovely peaceful meals on the terrace, overlooking the golf course, in between preparations and festivities!

The house has everything you need and is spacious and beautifully clean.

Thank you Teresa for a wonderful weekend!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early August 2016 with 8 adults and 8 children (oldest 15, youngest 4; 4 total families). Overall, we had a wonderful time and would be happy to return.

LOCATION: ~2 hours from Los Angeles, 1 hour from San Diego. Fallbrook is a small, sleepy town so there isn't a ton to do there, but I'd highly recommend the wine tour at the Fallbrook winery. We drove into San Diego several times. Things like Sea World, Lego Land, and the SD zoo are not super close, but doable for sure. It takes some planning.

HOUSE: The house is nice. We are a large group that rents a home together each summer, and we are pretty particular about our lodging.This house has been the best house we have rented to date. We enjoyed the ease of the pool, the separate "guest house", and the big kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies and is highly functional. We particularly enjoyed the back deck area where we ate most of the meals. Although the golf course wasn't being used at the time of our rental (looked closed for business), the view of the sunset was perfect at dinner time. We actually preferred the closed course because we used it like a humongous backyard! We did have a few comments about the house. (1) We found there weren't enough bathrooms for our crew. There is a full bath in the guest house (we had 5 there) and then two full baths in the main house (for 11 people). Two bathrooms for 11 people wasn't great. (2) There is a small bedroom right off the kitchen that is closed with pocket doors. While the room worked ok for kids, it doesn't afford much privacy. If someone got up early and used the kitchen, the people in that room would inevitably be woken up. (3) We agree with the comments about Verizon not working well, but they did provide a VZ access point that worked OK. The wi-fi was usable, but spotty. I had to reboot the modem nearly every day. It was good enough and also good to take a vacation from the screens!

OWNER: Theresa was great. She is a good communicator and was responsive to problems. For example, a next door neighbor that played loud, explicit music that wasn't appropriate for kids. She addressed it immediately.

Owner's Response: This was a very nice family but, unfortunately, these guests did not tell us they had trouble with the Internet so we couldn't address it while there were in the house. We contacted the cable company once we heard (after they left) and the cable company rebooted the system at their end and that fixed it immediately. We have the best cable package available since wi-fi is very important! As for the loud, inappropriate music next door, the owners were out of town in Napa and their 20-something kids (who do not live at the house) had friends over and it got away from them. As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we got ahold of the neighbors and it was resolved. It's doubtful that issue will ever happen again, thank goodness! The moral of the story is that, should you need anything, have trouble with anything at all, please text or call, day or night, and we'll get right back to you. As for bathrooms, there are 3.5 in the house and guesthouse and an outdoor shower for quick after-pool rinse offs. PLEASE review our accommodations (beds, bathrooms, showers, toilets, etc) before arriving. If you feel the house is inadequate for your needs, you may need a larger house or a second house. We can recommend one. 18 is the max we take but is not always the most comfortable as far as occupancy goes. Most of our groups are far smaller than this! Our house is a very special place and we want you to have an absolutely wonderful stay in Fallbrook! Come and visit soon!
