Overview

San Diego County House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful spacious model quality home in quiet neighborhood in Santa Fe Hills

Gorgeous, fully furnished two-story open concept home with spacious rooms. The home has a beautiful kitchen with modern stainless steal appliances (Refrigerator, Microwave, Stove, Toaster, Mixer), granite counter tops and new cabinetry. Hot water for drinks is available at the touch of a finger with an instant hot faucet. The family room is large and has a 46-inch LCD TV, including cable and a Wii Gaming System with games. For those that can’t get away from work, there is an office located next to the family room with a printer/FAX, phone and Wi-Fi (allows access to the internet anywhere in the house). A laundry room and bathroom are located near the office and three-car garage. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms; a master suite, a game room (books, Legos, toys) and a large bonus room with an additional large screen LCD TV, including cable.

In addition to being spacious, the home has views of the surrounding hills and mountains and is located on a quiet street with easy access to the 78 freeway and local Sprinter train station. The home shows like a model home. It has a grand entry, a pergola and patio cover, a small fountain and custom gas grill in the backyard. This vacation home offers you the choice to just relax and enjoy the quiet, beautiful area, take walks to the local park and children's play area, or enjoy the neighborhood recreational facilities which include a large pool, tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball court, and baseball fields. Or, you can simply bike, roller-blade, or take leisurely walk around the scenic neighborhood. If you're the active type, you are only 1.75 miles from the 78 Freeway and all that San Diego, Temecula and the beaches have to offer. Shopping, movie theaters, casual and fine dining can be found 2 to 2.6 miles away (Nordstrom’s Rack, Ross, Sprouts Grocery Store, Elephant Bar Restaurant, Old California Restaurant Row to name a few). Additional shopping can be done at the Carlsbad Outlet Stores or one of the two malls located on the 78 Freeway and I-15 Freeway about 12 miles away. All the hot sites and attractions are easily accessible via freeway or train. LegoLand, Carlsbad and Oceanside Beaches, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are 12 to 15 miles away. Balboa Park, SeaWorld, Sea Port Village, Old Town, Gas Lamp District and the San Diego Zoo are only 39 miles south of San Marcos. Disneyland is an easy 75 minute ride North (72 miles) via the 78 Freeway and then the I-5 Freeway. Temecula’s Old Town, wine country, and golfing are only 34 miles to the North on the I-15 Freeway.

About Terry Woodcock

I am a retired Software Engineer that worked for Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon for 31 years. I grew up in Southern California where I went to school and got my Masters Degree in Computer Science. I currently live with my wife and son in Murrieta California, which is located about 30 to 40 minutes to the North of San Marcos. When my wife retires in the next 4 to 5 years, we plan to move back to our home in San Marcos.

Terry Woodcock purchased this house in 1999

Why Terry Woodcock chose San Diego County

I have lived near the ocean my entire life. I grew up in the cooler more cloudy conditions found at the beach. When we bought this home we decided to move inland a little to get more sun. Since It is only 12 miles from the beach, it gets ocean breezes late in the day. However, because it is located away from the beach and up against the hills the sun comes out sooner and stays longer. The home is also centrally located near the 78 and I-15 freeways and was half way between our two jobs. I drove South down the I-15 to San Diego and my wife drove North to Murrieta.

What makes this house unique

The features of the area that attracted us to this home are the tree lined streets, recreational parks and local parks. The reason we pick this particular home was because it was on a hill. The hill gave us greater separation from our neighbors and great views of the surrounding hills out our back door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much. We loved staying and enjoyed your home very much. It was a perfect fit for our meeds for our much needed family vacation. Hopefully we will return some day

Spacious, beautiful, well equipped, and child friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days while in town on vacation with a 4, 2, and 1 year old. The house was fantastic, with tons of space, gadgets, and even toys for the kids. We roasted marshmallows on the propane table, used the outdoor shower after the beach, and utilized the variety of toys stocked in the playroom. Would highly recommend!

Very very nice large home

  • 5 of 5

Terry and his wife are very nice people. Their home is very nice and large too, with a great backyard. The house is well equipped, but we did not use many of the items. The neighborhood is very nice and safe too.

The internet worked well. We'd stay there again if in the area. We recommend it. The listing was accurate.

Beautiful, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

While trying to decide where to stay in CA, this home was striking because with all the many reviews, EVERY SINGLE ONE I read gave this one five stars! That is not without reason... the home is beautiful, spacious, clean, and in a great neighborhood. Everything you need and more is supplied, and Terry makes sure you know where things are and how to use them (we were thankful for the intro to the Wii and remote controls... that stuff takes us to forever to figure out on our own! :)). This was a great place to relax after a busy day doing all the things southern CA has to offer (and there are MANY!!!). We hit Cessy's in Carlsbad for some authentic Mexican cuisine. We don't live in citrus country, so before heading home, we stopped at Farm Stand West in Escondido for some farm fresh oranges, grapefruit, and lemons (so much better than store-bought, and good prices too!).

Thanks Terry for renting out your beautiful home to us. It is an exceptional value for the money!

Great House, Everything included

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Terry's house. When I first e-mailed him, I received a response very quickly. Reserving the house was easy and Terry called me to helped me do it.

Once we got to the house, it was everything and more than we could hope for. The house included everything but food for our stay. There was a printer so we could print out directions and tickets at the house. There was a ice chest, boogie boards and sand toys we used at the beach. There were lawn games that my son and I played with in the backyard. He had long forks for roasting hotdogs and Sumoores at the outside fire pit. My youngest kids loved playing on the Wii at night. My older two kids enjoyed having their own space to read after a day's worth of activities. I said they had everything but food, but they even had flour, salt, sugar and some spices in the kitchen. Everything we needed was at the house.

It is a very comfortable house with lots of room. We had seven staying at we had plenty of room for everybody.

We had a great week and the Terry and his house played a key part in that.

Operation Graduation and Disneyland Success!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun filled four days! Terry and Diane have a wonderful home and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! The walking trail even led us to our son's family home about 15 min away.

Ample space for our group of 7 adults and two kids. Terry was accommodating, even replacing the queen mattress for my mom who is elderly and couldn't climb the stairs. Making her a comfortable place to stay in the office was no trouble.

We hosted a graduation buffet after the ceremony and provided plenty of places to sit, visit, and enjoy the outdoors.

Recommend this address as the best way to spend time in the area!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really had a nice experience. Terry, the owner, since we started to book the house was really helpful. We had some delays in arriving and he was always trying to help us get there.

The house is really clean, has everything to make a great stay. My family and I were very lucky in finding Terry´s house. My family enjoyed it very much.

We recommend Terry´s property for everyone going to San Diego, it is close to many stores, restaurants, and located very well for amusement parks.
