Beautiful Estate and Safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I was there for a work trip with 6 other co-workers and we all really enjoyed our stay. Our favorite part was hanging out by the pool and looking at the view. The beds were comfortable and the property was clean. Roman, the property manager, was easy to work with.

Wonderful home for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family reunion with 8 children under age 12. The house is full of beautiful art and lots of space for individual families. The children loved playing hide and seek, swimming in the pool and the tree house. There is a temporary screen fence stored on the side of the house which we used to keep the babies out of the pool .We kept the windows open and did not need the air conditioning. The kids loved the media room and liked the play loft. We would stay there again .

Bonita Estate

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience and I highly recommend the location. It is a super house with all the amenities you could ever need. The back yard views and pool are really great! We had a corporate event in San Diego and used the house for lodgings for many of our invitees. The location is convenient and the property is immaculately maintained. The residence would be suitable for weddings, family reunions or large families. I also highly recommend Roman the property manager. He is super attentive and details oriented and will ensure your stay is super. Highly recommended!

Nice house that can be superb

  • 3 of 5

Nice house. Several ways for entreatment (pool, jacuzzi, TVs, Netflix, Music systems, excersise room, Game room, tree house, baroque..). Great place for family get together, with lots of rooms and and bathroom, however the house is showing signs of age and some items need to be upgraded, if done it is definitely deserves a 5 star rating. The house care taker is wonderful guy and very responsive.

Too hot for 5 stars

  • 3 of 5

We would like to give this house more stars, but there were too many little things that went wrong. Considering the over $1,000 per night price tag, this house only gets 3 stars from us.

We booked this house for a family reunion in the middle of July. Roman was very good to work with. He was very professional and helpful. Upon check in we discovered several things were missing or broken:

1. The filtered water didn't work for 2 days and the tap water was undrinkable. We had to use bottled water.

2. The trash compactor was broken. (Not a big deal)

3. The tub in the master bathroom wouldn't drain. (The plumber fixed it 2 days later.)

4. The treadmill was broken. (A big disappointment.)

5. The spa wouldn't turn on outside. It had to be turned on in the master suite. (Not a big deal, but an inconvenience for those staying in the master suite.

6. There was no boogie boards (as advertised) and only 1 bike (2 were promised). Roman was very helpful and brought us 2 boogie boards and a bike a few hours after check in.

All of these things were pretty minor. The biggest problem was with the A/C usage.

At check-in we were told the house has 5 A/C units, however, if we use the A/C we would go over our allotted power use for the week. We didn't use the A/C for the first couple of days, but the west wing of the house (which included 2 bedrooms, the exercise room, theater room, and office) was simply too hot to use without A/C. The children's loft was also extremely hot. We tried leaving the windows open to allow a breeze to cool the house, but were told not to leave the windows open when we were out of the house. It was also noisy at night with the windows open (with the windows closed it was fine). The temperature reached the high 80's while we were there. We used the A/C only at night for a short time to cool the bedrooms. We were gone most of the time during the days so we weren't using much power.

After we returned home, we discovered that some of our deposit was kept because we used too much power. For a house that cost over $1,000 per night, (and an additional fee because we had 13 people ) we feel the A/C should have been included.
