Overview

About the property

5 BR/4.5 BA Villa on Scenic Orange Grove with Panoramic Views

Location: Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego County, California (16 minutes to the Beaches) See Map

Accommodations: 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths

Our home is a beautiful, custom-built Spanish estate situated at the top of the hill on two private, spacious acres. We’re located in the gated community of “The Groves”, formerly a spectacular orange grove situated in the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe, and are adjacent to “The Bridges” Championship golf course.

We absolutely love living here. The views are exceptional, the weather is spectacular and we feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful villa. Every room in this fully furnished, 5100 square foot house is large and made more magnificent by vaulted ceilings throughout.

The home’s winning design is centered around a courtyard with an over-sized hot tub and a classic Roman pool (50 feet long!) We spend long days in this courtyard which includes a gorgeous stone dining table with six wrought-iron chairs for evening dinners, as well as an array of premium chairs, lounges and love seats with all-weather mattresses.

The pool area integrates seamlessly with the house, separated by over 20 over-sized floor-to-ceiling doors that open directly onto our courtyards.

The grounds are as beautiful as the interior. We have 30+ orange trees from the original working grove as well as two large rose gardens. The views are gorgeous. We often enjoy watching the hot-air balloons that appear over the horizon in our front yard at sunset.

The amenities are also first class. For outdoor entertaining -- over sized pool, hot tub, porch heaters, porch fans, dramatic lighting and a 52" natural gas grill. For indoor comfort – Viking Range (6 gas burners), Dual Oven, Sub Zero Refrigerator, Premium Bosch Dishwasher, Wine Cooler, Over-sized Wood Fireplace, Two Gas Fireplaces, Master Bathroom with Dual Shower and His/Her Staging Areas, WIFI, 50” LCD TV with Cable and a formal dining room with a beautiful, custom-made table that seats twelve. For children – multiple TV’s and gaming systems, ping pong table, board games, basketball court, bicycles, lacrosse wall and orange juice squeezer (for making fresh orange juice from the adjacent grove). Two private tennis courts exclusive to Groves residents are also located within walking distance.

About Bill Knees

We (Bill, Ryan, Adam and Dana -- not pictured) moved to Rancho Santa Fe from the East Coast back in 2007 and absolutely love it here. It truly feels like we're on vacation year-round. Since we still enjoy traveling ourselves, we've only just recently decided to rent out our home when we're gone on a very limited basis. We know you'll love the home and the area as much as we do.

Bill Knees purchased this villa in 2007

AMAZING PLACE & GREAT OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5

This was our best vacation in the last ten years! We feel so fortunate to have found this place. Everyone voted and we’re definitely coming back.

The house is gorgeous. There are huge glass doors everywhere so you feel outside even when you’re inside. It’s a perfect layout. Lots of space inside and out for socializing and eating. Plus the rooms are all so spacious, upscale and tastefully designed.

The grounds are beautiful. We picked roses every day and also made fresh orange juice. I can’t say enough about the pool. There are a lot of great pools in San Diego but this one was especially amazing. Plus we “lived” in the over-sized hot tub.

On top of that, the owners were so friendly and helpful. Always accommodating, always helpful and very nice people who care about their home and renters.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for a week in July 2015 while in San Diego for our daughter's wedding and cannot say enough good things about our stay. The owner was very helpful from the start and everything was perfect. We loved the house, the pool, the orange orchard and the roses.

Beautifully decorated and with everything you need for a very enjoyable stay. All of us loved going out to pick oranges and make fresh orange juice every morning. Great views, wonderful setting to relax and elegant, yet functional, decor. From our teenagers to the 100-year old grandparent, the house and outdoor amenities were enjoyed by all. Spacious - we especially loved the master bedroom suite - and the single floor living was very convenient, but with lots of room for everyone to have their own space or to gather all at once. Well equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking those family meals, and lots of space both inside and outside for dinner guests. We highly recommend this place and look forward to staying here again when we visit.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in San Diego and in this home. Plenty of space for our 3 families of 12 people, beautiful swimming pool, excellent grounds (with Orange trees), beautiful view of Rancho Santa Fe, and within close proximity to Del Mar. We had a wonderful time!

The Perfect Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning the owner was very courteous and quickly responded to our inquiries. The initial arrangements were simple, and the family was even kind enough to allow us to stop by beforehand to show some of the features of the home.

And the house simply put... was amazing! From the beautiful location, upkeep, decor, space, comfort, and breath taking views... I cannot emphasize enough how much we enjoyed ourselves. We had 7 adults, 3 toddlers, and 1 baby. The lovely home was large enough to easily accommodate everyone with room to spare. Every morning the kids enjoyed picking oranges and making fresh squeezed juice, and the outside pool area brings a serene feeling which allows you to kick back and relax. We enjoyed Legoland and the Safari Park which are close by, but may have had even more fun cooking family dinners and hanging out at the home.

I don't think many people will be able to experience this type of luxury, so if you're fortunate enough to be able to rent this home you will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend it.
