Very nice

  • 4 of 5

It was the perfect place for my husband and I to have all 3 of our grown kids and spouses to join us for a family wedding there. There is a king bed in the master suite upstairs with full bath, which my husband and I used with full closet, large BR, and TV living area... and the 3 bedrooms downstairs were adequately suited for our kids. My older son and his wife had a king bedroom, my second son and his wife shared a queen bed in a separate room. And my youngest son had a queen bed in the smaller of the rooms. There was adequate living room space for all of us to gather and watch TV....There is also a separate TV in a living area between the 3 downstairs bedrooms. It was a spacious fully equipped kitchen and plenty of dishes, utensils, etc. and dining area. Outdoors , there are 2 spacious patio areas with tables and chairs. So much better than staying at a hotel! The home is in somewhat of a rural setting with farmers markets nearby. Shopping and great restaurants are just minutes away. We all had a wonderful time.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Patty and Mrs. Cooper was very accommodating. I asked if I could check in early because I had. 2 month old baby and Mrs cooper did everything she could to make that possible.

The house was beautiful. Large and spacious. The lot was bigger. Love the fire pit in the back and the bbq grill. We were able to bbq while my family and I were here.

Legoland was a short 15-20 min away. Ocean side peir was just as close.

Would love to stay there again on our next family trip down south

Pictures do not do justice for this place. Its perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Great place and pictures do not do justice . It is in a quiet peaceful neighborhood and big yard for kids to play and adults to hang out. Kitchen is beautiful and everything is there if you need it . Location is good if going to Legoland and the Beach. A little farther away from La Jolla and downtown . 45 minute drive to the airport.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on this house do no justice! So much room in this house for 4 couples and 3 children! Everyone had plenty of room and the owner was amazing. I would definitely book this house again if I'm in the area again.

Nice owner but this house is in the middle of nowhere.

  • 3 of 5

Patty is a nice lady. Very easy to communicate with her.

The property is 15 miles from Carlsbad so not terribly convenient. Using VRBO, I didn't know the exact address until I booked. The house itself is nice except it only has 2 bathrooms. 1 in the master bedroom and 1 for everyone else to share. This is very inconvenient. Also two of bedrooms are underneath the master bedroom and you can hear footsteps from the second floor.

Otherwise, the furniture and decor is pretty nice.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry your event was in Carlsbad and was 8.6 miles from my home and made it inconvenient for you.. VRBO has it pinned correctly on their map, but maybe you did not see it on their site. I have been able to tell other guests exactly how many miles from their event when they have asked. I hope that the service to come over to turn down your music, change the light bulb and adjust the hot water heater were helpful. I hope that you were able to enjoy your family together in my home and to enjoy San Diego County while you were here. Thank you.
