The SpaceAs soon as you walk in to this amazing house with 270 degree views, you immediately feel like you are on vacation. The house sits on a hill overlooking the city of vista. Your room is on the entry-level right off the main floor with the common area kitchen and living spaces. It faces the street and gets a good breeze throughout the day. Room has privacy shades, large closet, queen-sized bed, and luxury linens and towels to enjoy for a comfortable stay! The bathroom is right across the hall and is sometimes shared with another room. However, it tends to be a private bathroom more often than not as past bookings have shown. Guest AccessYou will have access to all of our shared living spaces including: Backyard with infrared BBQ, resort-style outdoor sofas and dinning table, gourmet kitchen, wine fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave and refrigerator, living room, TV in the living room and laundry room. Please bring your own laundry detergent.
We do not have cable TV, but there is a chromecast in the main living room if you'd like to cast shows. We have Netflix and Hulu on the smart TV as well.
Its best to park on the dirt strip across the street from the house rather than in the driveway as it is a very steep driveway. If you must park in the driveway, we ask that you please leave enough space so that cars can come and go. We do not have street lighting as we are in a rural area, but we try to leave the light on outside the house. If you arrive late and there is no light, you can push the middle button on the door lock and it will illuminate the key pad for you.
We are a keyless system and have a pretty cool temporary code system for guests that expires when you check-out. That way you are ensured the highest level of safety. You will receive your room's automated door code when you book. Interaction with GuestsWe travel a lot so we may or may not be in town during your stay. However, we are always available via email, phone and the airbnb app. We also have a house sitter that is our on-site, go-to person when we are away. You will receive all of her information as well so if you need anything, she can provide while we are away. The NeighborhoodWe live in a semi-rural neighborhood which makes it feel like you are in the country even though you are about 5 minutes from the 78 freeway, restaurants, breweries and grocery stores including Target, Walmart, BabysRUs, Costco, Michaels, and more!
Please note that our county street is windy and does not have sidewalks or lighting at night, but the house is usually lit up. Getting AroundIn San Diego, its best to have a car to get around, but we are lucky enough to live just a 15 minute walk to the Sprinter train that can take you to the beaches in Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido. Cal State San Marcos University is also a stop on this route.
Also, we are about a 20 minute walk or (2 minute drive) to Target, Aldi grocery strores, Walmart and other shopping/restaurants.
We are also located about 3 minutes from the 78 freeway and 15 minutes from the 5 freeway and the 15 freeway.
Other places of interest nearby: Great beaches, Legoland, Palomar College, the GIA institute, Stone Brewery, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Carlsbad Outlet shopping, North County fair shopping and much more. We are only about an hour with no traffic to Disneyland and 40 minutes to downtown San Diego with museums, restaurants and nightlife. Other Things to NoteAll the bedroom doors have locks from the inside so you can lock it when you sleep, but do not lock from the outside. We've never had an issue with theft or security in over 200 reservations, but we realize that some guests need to have this level of security. If this is important to you, this is not the house for you.
Because we are an airbnb property only, we do not allow ANY outside guests on the property at any time. This means friends in the area, family members or any other person who is not on the reservation. Only guests on the reservation will be allowed on the property. We apologize for this strict rule, however we have a zero tolerance policy for breaking it. This is for the safety and security of all of our guests to know that everyone on the property is verified through airbnb.
