About Todd and Colleen Nadeau
We are a relaxed family of three (two now, as our son has gone off to college) that enjoys the outdoors, being active and hanging out at our beautiful home and guest house. We are San Diego natives, with a vast knowledge of the city, places to visit and activities in the area. 5 things we can't live without are: 1. Each other. We enjoy each other and have fun playing together and with nearby family. 2. Being outside, feeling the sun and fresh air here in Rancho San Diego. 3. Peace and quiet. We enjoy the simple life. 4. Nature. The beauty of our yard, the nature preserve behind the house and the soothing breezes we have are healing. 5. Travel. We love to see and explore the world. Cruising is one of our favorite ways to vacation. We've cruised to Hawaii, Alaska, Belize, the Cayman Islands, the Panama Canal, Costa Rica and many other great areas. We work in health care and are a health conscious family that enjoys going to the drive-in for double feature movies and charity fundraisers to give back to the community. Ping pong, baseball, basketball, hiking, swimming, volleyball, church and mountain biking are regular activities for us. We look forward to sharing our beautiful home and its' surrounding landscape with friendly travelers.

Fabulous family stay
A peaceful getaway with a gorgeous pool and hot tub to enjoy after an adventure filled day in beautiful San Diego. Approved by picky teenagers too. Lovely porch with a breeze that the adults enjoyed in the morning. Safe, beautiful neighborhood and owners Colleen and Todd are lovely people. Would definitely recommend.
Why only 3 Stars?
Our main need is a nice place to sleep. We were hoping for better beds.
Very quiet location, backs to open space.
It is a nice granny unit to a larger main house, owner occupied.
We are quiet renters. Would not recommend this to anyone who is too boisterous,
We will try and fix any issue upon finding out about it. Please don't hesitate to tell us about a problem while you are here, as we truly want guests to have a 5 star experience.

Beautiful Home and Fantastic Hosts
This property is in a beautiful neighborhood and only a few minutes from downtown San Diego. The home was fantastic and the hosts were so helpful, accommodating, and available for our every need. Staying here made our vacation all the more better.
Beautiful Rain or Shine
Just finished up a nice little getaway weekend. Awesome views from every room. Cottage is beautifully appointed. Gorgeous landscaping with a giant fenced in yard my pup enjoyed. Hiking trails right outside the back door. Will definitely repeat.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Rain in May here is uncommon, but you made the best of it. We hope you return to enjoy the home and trails sometime soon.

Quiet and Relaxing
My family and I have been extremely busy and this was the only time we had to do something together this summer, so we agreed on looking for a quiet and relaxing place we could enjoy and re-energize. We were lucky to find this location. Sitting about 20 minutes east of downtown San Diego, it has a country feel to it. The property sits up against some hills with nice nature trails for hiking, running, mountain biking, and even horseback riding. Each morning we woke up to birds and rabbits beginning their day, just outside the back doors and windows. What a nice way to begin our day. The house, which I believe is a "mother-in-law" type house, has everything you need. You really only need to bring clothes and food if you want to cook. The owners even provided some drinks, snacks, and fruit to get us started. Now, speaking of the owners, Todd and Colleen were wonderful. We had the pleasure of meeting them upon our arrival. In addition to the kind greeting, they provided a tour of the house and facility and ensured we had everything we needed. They were always there if we had a need or questions; responding quickly to emails and text messages. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. They were kind, friendly, caring, and provided us privacy and space. We feel fortunate to have met them. I do want to mention that though the place has a country feel to it, you are not far away from shopping, good restaurants, and things to do; either locally or a short trip to La Mesa or San Diego. Thank you, Todd and Colleen, for a memorable getaway.
Thank you for the kind words Robert. You and your family were a pleasure to host. You were kind and gracious. Perfect guests!
Having our own son in college we know how valuable time together as a family is. Christian is blessed to have a family such as yours that makes family-time a priority.
We wish all of you the best and hope you will return someday for another visit.
