About Bob

Im Bob a local ranch and beach front property real estate agent. My wife Rose & I own the ranch estates and have lived with our 4 children in Elfin Forest over the last 20 years.

Bob purchased this estate in 1995

Why Bob chose San Diego County

The Ranch is located in Elfin Forest area just 9 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 9 miles from LEGO Land. It is approximately 1000 ft elavation with a Great View of San Diego North County. The area has miles and miles of horseback riding, bicycle,hiking trails and the Elfin Forest Reserve an 8 billion gallon water reservoir that give you the away from it all feeling while still being Very close to the beach, shopping, restaurants etc..

What makes this estate unique

I fell in love with the ranch because it is very close to the ocean but just far enough away and at a high enough elevation where the Pacific Ocean fog doesn't cover us and you can see the stars here almost every night. The ranch has Huge patios, Big kitchen lots of setting and places to just hang out and relax.

Everything was great! We love San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the ranch in March during our spring break. It was perfect rental property for our three families. Everyone enjoyed the property for many different reasons. The kids were very entertained outside with the tennis court, pool, playground, trampoline, horses and chickens. The two Bunk bed bedrooms were great for the kids too! We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and hiking close to the property. House is kept clean and organized inside and out. Bob is always easily reachable and helpful. The view from the living room, kitchen sink and tennis court is spectacular! Wish we had the extra time to take some horse riding lessons! Would definitely consider renting again in the future. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect place for family gatherings of all ages!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to describe how absolutely perfect this home is. Better than described and very clean and well stocked. We had 3 families with kids ranging from 3-19. Our goal was to find a place where the kids wouldn't be bored so the adults could relax and visit with each other. Although that was our goal and it certainly happened- we also joined in with the kids many times because the activities were so much fun. Swimming, basketball, tennis, playground, trampoline, inside Kids play area with lots of fun toys, BBQ, and great patio with tons of seating overlooking all the activities and incredible view of valley. There was also a fun hike nearby, and we visited the beach twice- only about a 10 minute drive. The beach toys, chairs and umbrellas were wonderful- they were a big bonus! Plenty of room to sleep, every person had an extremely comfortable bed. Each room came with flat screen and netflix. It rained everyday but our first day and we still swam everyday but 1 and thats because we left the house for an excursion to Old Town. Perfect weather for our tennis and basketball tournaments. We lighted up the tennis court at night and that was the biggest hit of all I think! What can I say? It was amazing- we dream of coming back! :) Thanks Bob for all your extra efforts to make it really nice. He was always available if we had questions. Two incredibly enthusiastic thumbs up from all of us! Vacation of a lifetime!

Amazing Tennis Estate Near San Diego

  • 5 of 5

I just loved this property. I stayed here with my family. The property has room for everyone with many rooms and guest house suite above the garage. IF you love to swim or play tennis this house is for you. We have younger kids that played in the park near the tennis courts while the adults played tennis. The kids loved the pool. The owner also has a riding arena next door that for an additional fee he will give you riding lessons. The property is amazing with breathtaking views of San Diego. Every night around sunset there are hot air balloons in the sky. I would strongly recommend staying here.

Best Vacation I have ever had

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many places around the world. The reason I loved this place so much is because I could bring my whole family and stay all under one roof. It was very comfortable and many bed and places to sleep. It is a beautiful house and property. I was able to take the kids swimming everyday and I was also able to play tennis which I love. I have stayed at many resorts where there are tennis courts available but having your own private court with lights for night was the best. Bob the owner was also very nice and accommodating. He also has horses and riding arena next door. Just ask about horse riding lessons for an additional fee. It was the best experience we have had in a long time. I strongly suggest staying here.

Perfect Place For a Big Group

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. We rented this house for a few days in late October & early November to accomodate guests for our wedding, which took place in the Ranch house next door.

The house was great, and Bob, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. He took great care of us.

The property is wonderful, and well-maintained, with spectacular views and great outdoor seating to take it all in. We were gathered nightly by the propane fire pits, doing everything from tarot card readings to pondering life, death and quantum physics. One would think (and we did) that this place was in the middle of nowhere, but it really isn’t. You’re only about a mile from groceries, restaurants and whatnot. It was close to Legoland and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park (not the main zoo near downtown). Some of the crew, including my in-laws and parents went to nearby Temecula to visit the vineyards and had a blast. Nothing in San Diego county is centrally-located per se, but if you’re looking to visit different places in Southern California I can’t picture a more perfect place to come home to at the end of the day. An hour and half from Disneyland, 45 mins from San Diego Airport and Gaslamp, maybe half an hour to La Jolla. When our time at the house was over, my new wife and I took a few days and traveled up the highway one to Monterey and then finished the last week of our vacation in various hotels in San Diego. We stayed in some pretty nice hotels but all we kept thinking was how much we missed Bob’s property. I didn’t spend nearly enough time in this house, which is upsetting because it’s a really cool place. I recommend it highly, especially if kids will be in tow, because Bob and his wife have done a lot to make sure kids are accomodated and safe. I loved playing the piano in the few scattered moments I got when I wasn’t rushing around doing wedding related things. Also, the master bedroom is absolutely phenomenal!

About half of our guests had never been to California, and some were skeptical of what all the fuss was about, but by the end of the trip, everyone said the had the time of their lives, and were blown away by how nice the two houses were, how picturesque SoCal is and how accomodating and friendly Bob was. We’ll be back for sure.

Great Customer Service!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our yearly family get together. Something for everyone. From well maintained pool toys, to playground to the gardens we were impressed with the hand tailored linens and how well the kitchen was stocked. Plenty of gathering room indoors or out so everyone always had enough room. This home was all that was promised and more! We will definitely be back!
