Beautiful house and beautiful location. The photos don't do it justice. Nestled in hills up above northern San Diego County that reminded me of Topanga or Malibu, the house features a massive yard, basketball court, jungle gym, hammock and cactus garden. The house is well- furnished with leather couches in two rooms, a large master w a very comfortable bed, gourmet kitchen and billboards room. Also a big den off the kitchen with a large TV hooked up to Blu-Ray and surround sound as well as WiFi. Dave and Penny greeted us and showed us around and were very helpful throughout our long stay.
What can I say? Dave's home completely shattered any expectations that I had. It is beautiful, roomy and has every amenity one could possibly want or need. On top of that Dave is an amazing host. We had one minor issue one night at 9 pm and Dave was there in 10 minutes to fix it. I would unequivocally recommend Dave's home!
We live in San Diego. I'm a Marketing Manager for a large tech company and my wife is an ex-teacher, now stay-at-home mom. We have 3 kids, and have used AirBnB several times and have had great experiences.
