Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Escape to 7 rural acres of fresh air and quiet nights at our modern day castle. The "Thistledown Suite" is self-contained with a private entrance, bathroom, and spacious bedroom all thoroughly cleaned between guests *please see our note below about availability & hygiene*. Relax in the "Scottish Library" themed room, savor incredible sunsets, or star gaze. You're only 5 mins from the 15 freeway, so local wedding venues, golf, wineries, beaches, downtown San Diego, and more are easy to access!

The space
AVAILABILITY
To keep ourselves and our guests healthy, we have our calendar set to automatically block two days before and after guest stays for safe cleaning between guests. If you are interested in a longer stay or alternate dates, please message me. While we know longer stays are currently in demand, we are not well suited for stays of more than a week.

HYGIENE
We have minimized hard-to-sanitize materials like rugs and decorative throws from our space and follow the cleaning guidelines of The Airbnb Cleaning Handbook.

AMENTIES
The "Thistledown Suite" is on the first floor of our castle with a bay window and a private and secure entrance. To keep you comfortable, the room is furnished with:
*queen bed with crisp, clean, hypoallergenic bedding
*closet space, table and 2 chairs, space heater
* large, walk-in custom tiled shower; fluffy towels; organic soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion; hairdryer
*high speed wifi and SMART tv (you can log into your Netflix, Hulu, AmazonPrime etc.)
*Keurig coffees, hot chocolate, and teas; mini-fridge and microwave; and a selection of snacks.

THE SETTING
Our castle gets incredible ocean breezes and is built with 13" thick walls so rooms stay comfortable year-round and are very, very peaceful. We have a circular driveway and plenty of parking. The "Thistledown Suite" shares a wall with our main living quarters so you may hear our front door or some sounds of daily living, but we do our best to give you peace and quiet during your stay. The neighbors have a few farm animals so you may just catch some feeding-time chatter--and you are almost guaranteed to be treated to coyote conversation across the valley in the evenings :)

NOTE: there is not room to add a cot, air mattress or other accommodation for additional guests. Guests do not have use of the laundry nor main areas of the castle.

Our 7-acre property is NOT fenced and we do have poison oak growing in some areas. Please stay on pathways and do not explore the "brush." As you should anywhere in native SoCal, please be aware that critters, potentially including snakes, make their homes out in the bushes and rocks--please be cautious and stay on designated pathways. Thank you!

Where you’ll be

Bonsall, California, United States

Bonsall is known for rolling agricultural hills, horse ranches, and a fantastic ocean breeze. Our home was designed to look like the castle you imagined as a child but is completely modern built for comfort. We have an unobstructed view of the western horizon making for incredible sunsets.

Just down the road is a little "downtown" with restaurants, a grocery, bank, and a movie theater (currently closed).

Many of north San Diego county's famous breweries are within 20-30 minutes, just down the "Hops Highway" to the south, or head north to Temecula wine country for tastings.

We are within 30-45 minutes from so many wonderful destinations in San Diego, Orange County and more!

A former teacher, I'm now a full time writer and my husband, Jason, is a land surveyor. We enjoy traveling and have stayed at so many great Airbnb's around the world--we're excited to give back by opening up our home. And yes, it's a castle! We never planned to live at such a unique property but couldn't pass up the opportunity. We love the peaceful setting, gorgeous sunsets, and quiet space the castle provides and look forward to sharing it with you.

During your stay

I primarily work from home so am available if you need anything, however you will have the utmost privacy during your stay. You will be provided a code to access the exterior door, which leads into a mud/laundry room closed from the main house, and a code to your private suite so you can come and go as you please--but Jason and I are happy to answer any questions or meet you if you'd like as well!
