Why Jackie Surpin chose Lone Tree Estates
Our family loves the tranquility of the countryside, and the beauty and fun of the California beaches. This property gives us the best of both worlds. My husband and I love to jog. We wake up each morning, attach Nala, our Labradoodle to her leash and off we go in search of new trails that our neighborhood has to offer, with horses that sometimes like to trot alongside of us. Sometimes we will pack up the car with our kids and rush to the beach that's only ten minutes away to build sandcastles, swim or boogie board, and grab an ice cream at the Del Mar Plaza before we head home. This property has something for everyone. If you want to just relax, set your cell phone off and walk or explore the trails in the area, our guests can do that. If you want to venture out and visit the spa, go golfing during the day, or dancing at night, we are walking distance from the Grand Del Mar. Our property is large, so children have a lot of grassy area to play and run around.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of my family's favorite places on earth is Italy. The first time I saw my home, walking through and around the gardens, with its olive trees, and the view of the valley, it reminded me of Tuscany. Throughout the day, it seems as if the valley changes personality. When the fog rolls in and hides between the houses, it suspends them in air. The sunset turns the sky into different colors, giving the valley a fiery effect. Now, every morning when I look at my backyard, I feel like I have a little bit of Tuscany tucked away in Carmel Valley, California.

Perfect private house
The guest house was perfect size, clean and had everything we needed. Host was great gave us great suggestions on restaurants and local info. Weather was perfect and plenty of windows to open to enjoy it. We did not do any cooking but kitchenette appeared to have everything you would need to so light cooking. Easy location and great area to take a walk.
Great location and kind proprietor
My husband and I recently stayed for a week at this VRBO listing. Jackie is a very kind host -- she made sure we were comfortable and made several suggestions for things to do in the area. The cottage is spacious, and the neighborhood has a wonderful walking path. The location is great. It takes less than 10 minutes to drive to Del Mar. It takes about 20-25 minutes to reach the wineries in Pasqual Valley. We had several lovely day trips, all within easy reach.
The kitchen would be a little awkward if you plan on doing much cooking (which we did not); but it works well if you plan on eating simply. Likewise, seating in relation to the TV is a bit awkward because of the pool table. All in all, the cottage is an extremely clean and comfortable space, Jackie is wonderful, and the location is quiet and close to points of interest. We recommend this spot for couples who are looking for a "time out".
Quiet, Accessible and Peaceful Property
Our family (two adults and one child) stayed at the Del Mar cottage for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage had all the amenities we needed, the beds were comfy, and Jackie was highly responsive to any questions we had. The property allows for a quiet and peaceful stay while being highly accessible to all the San Diego attractions and local beach towns. Very enjoyable stay.
Great location if staying away from water. Clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. There is easy access to almost everything but on a quiet street. The cottage had all of the necessary utencils and the coffee was a bonus. Jackie is nearby if you need anything but otherwise you have total privacy. We would stay here again.
Clean friendly guesthouse
Loved staying in Jackie's guesthouse. She was lovely, accomodating and friendly. Nice, quiet, safe location away from the chaos of downtown san diego, but close enough for easy (car) access. It was clean, had a nice kitchenette and a comfortable bed. Perfect for vising family staying at the grand del mar the next block over. We would definitely stay there again!
Quaint and quiet getaway.
Love this cottage, everything you need for a weekend getaway; close to the beach, shopping and the race track.
Comfortable and very private. This was our second stay. Never disappoints.
