The space

Why stay at the beach where it's overcast and cold every morning? Go inland where you can enjoy all-day sunshine swimming in the pool and later head to the beach after the foggy marine layer has burned off.

We have the perfect vacation home away from home in San Diego. A comfortable place where the kids stay occupied while you sip margaritas poolside.

This gorgeous 2,700 square foot family home is located on the eastern outskirts of the city in the sunny suburban neighborhood of San Carlos. It is conveniently located about 15 minutes from downtown/Zoo/Balboa Park, 20 minutes from beaches/Sea World, 10 minutes from Fashion/Mission Valley, and 5 minutes from great hiking at Mission Trails Regional Park. The house is also walking distance to Lake Murray, which offers a 4-mile paved trail around lake as well as fishing and picnic facilities.

This spacious home is kid friendly with toys and games conveniently stashed everywhere. There are four bedrooms (including 2 masters), three bathrooms, a great room with library and desk area, a living and eating area with hacienda style table that seats 10. The kitchen was remodeled in 2015 and has a peninsula that seats 3 and aside from all the usual kitchen equipment, also has a Pavoni Espresso machine. Yummy capuccinos every morning and you don't even have to leave the house! There is a high chair available for little ones.

The master suite provides a luxurious Eastern King size bed; and a gorgeous tiled bathroom with an enormous tub to soak in (as well as a separate shower area). The second master bedroom on the north wing of the house has a loft twin bed, an Ikea sofa that folds into double size bed and it's own bathroom. This room can also accommodate a raised Queen size air mattress. The Toucan room offers a twin (single) bed and glider chair under a painted jungle tree with toucans and butterflies overhead. The Train Room contains a twin/single upper bunk and full size (double - can sleep 2) on the lower bunk and still has enough space to also accommodate the queen air mattress. Pack-n-Play and/or queen air mattress are available on request.

The backyard features a swimming pool with safety fence, a covered patio with eating area, an in/outdoor barbeque, mini-slide/playhouse, and children's scooters, trikes and toys.

There is high speed wireless Internet and TV with Roku and Netflix. The TV is also equipped with a DVD player and we have a nice selection of kids movies (and a few adult movies). There is also a Wii system set up. There is a driveway for parking and also plenty of street parking. Bedding and linens are provided as well as pool and beach towels.

We have a gray tortoiseshell cat that remains here during your stay - if you're not comfortable caring for the cat we will make arrangements for a neighbor to come care for her daily. We also have a new dog - the latest member of our family. We would like him to remain here during your stay if possible and are open to discussing arrangement that suit your needs. If you're not dog people - we can find friends to take him temporarily. If you like dogs and don't mind walking and loving him during your stay, we can discuss a plan that suits your needs.

We had such a relaxed, wonderful stay at Casa Demarchi. The house was perfect for our family. Everything we needed was available to us. The kids enjoyed the pool. There were so many outdoor activities close by for us to do. Perfect vacation!
