Owner Supplied Testimonials

Great place for a family vacation!
Date of Stay: March 29, 2016
Kevin said ...

Our family was delighted to spend our vacation here. There were 7 of us, but there was room for plenty more. There is not a bad thing we can say about the property. It is close enough for the wants/needs of a vacation but far enough away that you feel like you are by yourself.
The house was clean, the views were amazing and the kids loved the pool.
Mary Jane and Roger were great hosts, having food ready for us when we arrived after a long flight was an added bonus. If we needed them they were there right and took care of us.
Again, I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here, and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Owner Response:
It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for leaving our vacation home in excellent condition.

Lovely hosts. Beautiful home.

My three generation family of 7 adults and five children spent our spring break here. We could not have felt more welcomed and comfortable in this home. The moment you walk in the door you are greeted with the feeling of peace, comfort and tranquility. There was not one bad "vibe" to be found.
Roger and Mary Jane are the ultimate hosts, there for you if you need anything but totally invisible and respectful of your privacy. While we took on an ambitious agenda everyone agreed they would love to return to this home to just enjoy the relaxed setting, views and pool.
Highlights of the home for us were the pool, the views, and fresh limes off the trees, not to mention all the space inside and out. The little boys loved blowing bubbles on the deck and watching them float across the valley.I choose this house mostly so my husband would have a view....it has that, and so much more.
" Gramma when do we get to go back to our California vacation house?"
Owner Response:
Jane, thank you for the excellent review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Your family were ideal guests.

Date of Stay: February 19, 2016 to February 16, 2016

Roger and Mary Jane's lovely home in the country in Oceanside, was the perfect place for our family reunion of 10 adults and 10 children under the age of 10. Even though the home was in the country it was just 7 minutes for a large shopping center/Wal-Mart. It was a lovely place for the children to play outside or in the down stairs guest room while we adults could reconnect in the great room upstairs. Two of our families stayed out on the beach just 20 minutes away, but the home was the perfect gathering place for time together. Mary Jane went over and beyond with her hospitality of providing the first nights dinner for all 20 of us along with the next morning's breakfast. Thank you Mary Jane for taking such wonderful pictures of our family as a large group and then individual family pictures. The pictures turned out perfect and will be wonderful memories to last us a lifetime. There's no question about it.... EVERYONE WANTS TO COME BACK AGAIN! Thank you once again for your hospitality and being right there to help meet all of our needs.

Owners Response-
Marti - We were very glad to know our vacation home was perfect for your family reunion. Looking forward to seeing you again next year.

Date of Stay -August 9, 2015

We could not have enjoyed our vacation more- the home was beautiful and had everything we could have asked and dreamed for. The owners were super helpful and hospitable, as accommodating as could be! We visited CA with my inlaws (3 families) and we all had enough room. We spent so much time in the pool, but also loved being close to the Oceanside beach and pier. We also loved playing games in the game room and lounging in the huge kitchen (that includes 4 lazy boy recliners!).
On our last day, the owner, who is a professional photographer, volunteered to take our family photos in the back yard. They were perfect! I would love to repeat this vacation!

Owners Response:
Bethany, we are so glad to hear that you all "loved" our home and enjoyed your family reunion. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Date of Stay: July 27, 2015
My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was definitely not long enough. The property is beautiful with lovely scenic views. The home is surrounded by Orange trees, Lime trees and Avocado trees. My family found this very exciting since we are from the desert and are surrounded by dirt and cactus. The property is very peaceful. The home was very well equipped from an array of appliances, kitchen supplies, hygiene products, beach towels to swim toys for the kids. You name it they had it. The pillows and down comforters were a big plus for us. The home is very large and has plenty of space for large families or large parties. The owners, Mary Jane and Roger are very lovely people. They were very welcoming and did their best to check in on us to ensure that our needs were met but maintained their distance. Their home is very warm and inviting. My family and I are already discussing plans to rent the property next year. Mary Jane and Roger no words can describe how thankful we are for your hospitality.

Owners Response:
Katrina, we are so pleased with your comments. It was our pleasure to have you select our vacation home for your stay. We look forward to having you and your family come again, any time.

I reserved the house for a family reunion for my siblings and their children. Everyone thanked me for finding such a great place to stay.
There was lots of space, the layout of the house is convenient, and overall quite comfortable. The biggest hit was the large and beautiful pool - kids and adults of all ages loved it. Next to the pool was a large patio with grill and seating, as well as a balcony with tables and lots of chairs.
The owners are very friendly and kind, and supplied us with everything we needed to be comfortable, including lots of high quality linens, kitchen and other supplies, sleeping space and more. Everyone would be more than happy to return.
Mark, we are so happy that you and your family enjoyed every aspect of our vacation home. It was so nice to see everyone having fun. And thank you for leaving the home in perfect condition.

Date of Stay: April 26, 2015 - Jillian said..
This vacation home was everything we hoped for! My family came in from several different parts of the country for a reunion, and we had a wonderful time. The location of the home was less than 15 minutes to the Pacific Ocean and the Oceanside Harbor (great restaurants) Legoland was maybe 1/2 hour.
The owners, Roger and Mary Jane, gave us a warm and friendly greeting and a nice tour on our arrival. All the bedding appeared to be new and everything was very clean and organized.
There were so many things for the kids to do, with the huge pool, and all the games! The game room worked as a great gathering area for everyone after our long days of exploring San Diego County. We were amazed at how peaceful and quiet it was! We will be returning next year, guaranteed!
Thank you Jillian for a great review. Your family were all delightful and so appreciative. It was so much fun to see the children pick out their favorite inflatable pool toy when they arrived. We are so pleased that you will be returning next year.

Date of Stay: April 12, 2015 - Allison B said.....
We all felt so lucky to find this vacation home. It was perfect for our family gathering of 10 adults and 8 children. After a long flight, we enjoyed the juice and snacks the owners had for us in the refrigerator.
Our first night, we had dinner at a nearby buffet restaurant. The rest of the days, we took advantage of the BBQ and the amazing large kitchen. The children loved to have their breakfast outside on the upper deck overlooking the pool. Each day was planned going to different attractions, but we did decide to change one day and spend it enjoying the pool and each others company.
We found this home so comfortable. The game room with a TV, board games, and coloring books was super organized. The living room had a large TV, where some of us just sat and talked. And for a good night sleep, the beds were awesome.
They had triple sheeting and wonderful pillows. This is the first time my husband didn't wake up with a stiff neck. We asked the owners about the pillows and they gave us a couple of them. We called this home "our resort" and plan to return.
Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Age 55+, Families with Teenagers
What a wonderful review! We are so glad to hear that all your family enjoyed themselves. It was our pleasure to make this "resort" home available to you. We'll see you next year.

Date of Stay: May 10, 2015 - Steve said...
This home was great for my family and I. There is plenty of room in the home. Many great amenities were provided including: nice silverware, dishes, barbeque, pool toys, comfortable bedding, cosmetics, and much more.
The game room is great for children and the family room is the perfect place to relax. Great view- Not far from the beach.
The owners were very friendly and provided a tour and informed us of everything provided in the home.
Overall we had a spectacular stay. I highly recommend staying at this home for a great vacation.
