About Destry Labo,

We are a family of four that loves to travel, cook, relax at the beach and entertain. We really enjoy having family get togethers at our vacation home La Costa Paradiso. There is always so much to do nearby and the weather can't be beat! The kids are always anxious to go to the luxury theater (Cinepolis) up the street every time we visit. We really enjoy our home and the beautiful tropical backyard. It is very relaxing sitting by the pool drinking coffee in the morning watching our little hummingbirds visit daily. We are long-time vacation rental owners and strive to make our guests as comfortable as possible and enjoy their stay.

Destry Labo, purchased this house in 2007

Why Destry Labo, chose San Diego County

We loved the location of this home, so close to the beach, friendly neighbors, quiet safe neighborhood and fantastic location. Everything is literally just a few minutes away!!!

What makes this house unique

Your very own Private Retreat 'La Costa Paradiso' is close to restaurants, fabulous shopping, and fun theme parks for the kids. Down the street is Bataquitos Lagoon, a bird sanctuary (a birdwatcher's paradise). We love walking to the top of the hill and watching the sunset over the Lagoon and the Ocean. The location is unbeatable! La Costa Paradiso is set up so perfectly for families of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Destry. We had a marvelous time. We appreciate your hospitality. The pool, the baby gear, the toys…all a major hit for our four. Much appreciated!

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

This house was great - fully equipped for families with little kids. Lots of kitchen gadgets (couldn't find a drying rack), hot tub heated up quickly, which was great. Furniture arrangement upstairs is a bit dangerous with little kids (couches close to railing) so would suggest homeowner make a change there or guests make sure there is always an adult upstairs with them playing. Lots of board games and toys for kids, ping pong etc in garage was great. Would stay again.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved the house and the location. It was perfect for our 3 families. It was well kept and very clean and organized. The toys for the small children was a nice touch. We enjoyed the backyard and the games in the garage. Our family would stay there again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a home in the San Diego area.

San Diego Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best rental homes we have enjoyed renting on VRBO with caring owners!

Perfect for our two families of 5 that shared this well kept, organized, clean home. We had everything we needed.

It felt like home except with better weather:-) Beaches are minutes away as are other attractions along with shopping literally a minute away. The backyard patio was great for relaxing after our daily adventures and the kids loved the ping pong table, board games and of course the swimming pool.

We would definitely recommend this home to friends, family and anyone looking into a San Diego family vacation.

Memorable Experience

  • 5 of 5

Both property owners were super helpful, communicative and reliable. The house is beautifully kept and holds true to it's photos. We have 5 children ages 12 through 19 and we have vacationed in houses close to the beach for 7 years. They all agree that this is our favorite house! Clean, beautiful flooring, cool indoor temp, comfortable beds, and kitchen table that seated all of us are some of the reasons why it is our favorite. However, the two biggest factors were the extremely cozy and roomy couches in the loft/tv area where we gathered each night to watch late movies AND the jacuzzi where we spent time each night chatting, bonding and catching up with our kids that are in or leaving for college. I highly recommend this fantastic summer rental.

Great Home, Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

William and Destry exceeded our expectations! You can't beat the location off Aviara Parkway about 2 miles from the beach. The home is very well appointed and comfortable. stocked with everything you need, it felt like home away from home. We especially appreciated that everything was baby proofed considering we had 2 under the age of 2 in the house. Pool, spa, firepit, and ping pong table were all a hit! My family will definitely return when we are back in the area. Above all, we really appreciated the owners hospitality. Thank you William and Destry!
