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 house 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 house 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.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 8 children had a wonderful time at the ranch playing tennis, swimming, etc. and the kids loved the trampoline and playground equipment. An extra bonus was the play area in the house which is loaded with interesting toys. We also enjoyed the chickens and the goats that they brought over for the kids to see. When we needed something, they were there quickly to meet our needs with a smile. I loved the baby grand piano!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with 2 families to the house for a vacation where we based for trips to LEGOLAND, SD Zoo, SD Safari park, and beach. The house is great and has great amenities for the kids. This mixed with the animals on property and great hiking trails nearby made this an amazing vacation and I would recommend the property for families.

Perfect Family Gathering - wish we were still there!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just perfect for our extended family of 7 adults and 4 children aged from almost 2 up to almost 7. We chose Southern California as a central meeting place for our family, as we live in various parts of the world. I think we used every feature of this house. We loved the heated pool with the electric cover to keep children safe, we adored the family sized trampoline and the excellent tennis court was well used. (The court even has lights, but bring your own racquets if you want a proper game). We played the piano, cooked on the barbecue, watched movies on the TV, did jigsaw puzzles on the formal table and bathed all the little ones in the big master bath (which even had bath toys). In the evenings we sat outside under the gas heaters and marveled at the stars. Bob was an attentive and generous host. He was there in flash when one of the showers wouldn't turn off and he and his lovely wife Rose did us 4 special favors during the week, that were really above and beyond what we expected. The house felt comfortable and safe. The weather in April was perfect - no bugs, no flies, and just right for sitting outside and slipping in and out of the pool. Although the house looks grand in the pictures, it has a cosy feel and has toys, a high chair and there are even bikes for the tennis court and floaties and pool toys for the pool. I would thoroughly recommend this house, especially for families as it is particularly child friendly.

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.
