Fabulous family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's home is the absolutely perfect venue for a family vacation. We hosted our adult sons, their wives and five grandchildren, ages 3 months to nearly 9. The floor plan was perfect because it provided the family with the three youngest children a two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite at one end of the house...good since the two youngest still awaken several times a night. The guest house was perfect for our other son and his family...and we were upstairs in the master...away from the chaos when we wanted to be.

The yard and especially the pool provided a perfect place for family gatherings in the afternoon.

The home is furnished very nicely as shown in the photos and the yard and other facilities are appropriately indicated.

Nancy recommended a wonderful photographer who did a family portrait session with great patience...and she also gave our daughter-in-law the name of a baby equipment rental place. She was most responsive to our questions.

Summary: we would rent her lovely home again.

A stay in the paradise

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked through the heavy wooden entrance doors, we felt as though we had been transported to a resort destination. Ensconced in our villa, we were immediately in vacation mode. Beyond the courtyard there is a large pool and a picturesque garden filled with fresh herbs. At night we would gather around the gazebo bar to barbecue dinner.

Inside the home is a well-equipped eat-in kitchen with a table that comfortably seats five and on the other side of the kitchen island is a dining room table that seats eight. There are three bedrooms in the main house (plus an office with a futon that opens) and two more bedrooms in the attached guesthouse. There are several indoor and outdoor seating areas, making this the perfect destination for multi-generational gatherings. All of the public rooms have French doors that open to the spacious property. And, if you are looking for complete relaxation, there is a large hammock positioned perfectly in a shaded area of the garden.

Situated at the top of the panoramic Soledad Mountain, this property is just a quick drive into La Jolla and has convenient access to the I-5 and La Jolla Parkway. The neighborhood is free from the heavy traffic associated with the downtown areas of La Jolla.

Whether you want to stay at the house and relax in the pool or go to the beach to kayak and surf or head to the many scenic hiking trails, this vacation property offers it all. With the palm trees swaying in the heavenly blue sky, how could you not enjoy this piece of paradise?

My family and I entered our Magical Mediterranean Villa and were immediately taken by the quality and beauty of our surroundings. We headed straight for the kitchen of course, and found it to be the gathering place we'd hoped it would be, well-equipped and ready for family meals. We did not meet the owner, but felt her presence in the small touches throughout the home and garden. The master bedroom and bath were the retreat my husband and I needed, quiet and cozy with wonderful views all around. La Jolla was fun, we especially liked walking the Windnsea beaches and being able to walk right up to the Village afterwards for coffee. Good times!

Very Enchanting Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the front gate we were captivated by the size and beauty of the gardens. It was far larger than it looked from the street. It felt like we were on an Island of our own. We entered the double doors of the house and were met by the owner and Housekeeper Francisca. The home is beautifully decorated and though large, quite warm and elegant.

The kitchen is definitely going to bring out the chef in you. It is very well equipped. We actually hired someone to come in and cook pizza in the outdoor pizza oven. Fantastic!

My fiancé is an Airline Pilot so we travel quite a bit and rent homes in many areas. This home was by far the finest we have ever rented. The owner was very helpful with any special requests we had and seemed to know in advance what our needs might be.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone!
