My place is close to parks, great views, the beach, restaurants, dining, breweries, hiking, amusement parks.

Absolutely loved the patio and outdoors lounge area. I finished up the rest of my work day on the patio and it was such a wonderful way to wrap up the day. The room is cozy and bed is soft. Great stay and host!

From the moment you walk into the house, you know you have made the right choice. The first thing you will notice is your name on the chalk board welcoming you and your guest. As you walk through the house, the pictures come to life, and you say "Wow", what a gorgeous and peaceful environment. You walk into the kitchen and Jeanne has fresh fruit, wonderful pastries and a basket full of snacks for the taking. You go outside on the patio and you are presented with a fantastic view along with lots of places to sit and enjoy your breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My daughter lives in San Marcos with roommates which is why I wanted a place she and I could share together. Not once, did we feel like strangers. We talked, we laughed, and we shared a meal. I can go on and on about my experience, but I think you got the message. This is absolutely the place to stay in San Marcos.

Jeanne and Bill were awesome hosts! They were very welcoming and opened their house to us. Jeanne provides us with a book of hiking trails in the San Diego area in which we utilized. She provided us with breakfast and snacks for our beach trips. They were very nice and approachable. They had two dogs that would greet you the second you walked into the house and were super cute. Overall, it was a great experience! I would definitely recommend this airbnb to everyone! :)

Jeanne is a wonderful and gracious host, and has a beautiful home. Watching the sunsets from the swing on the veranda, sitting by the fire with the cool ocean breeze. .. Just a few things that make this place special. I look forward to returning very soon.

The pictures really don't do it justice. Jeanne has a beautiful home with lots of upgrades. The outdoor entertaining area has lots of seating and a fire pit. Jeanne is such a great hostess. She goes above and beyond just renting out a room. She really cares about the quality of your stay and makes an effort to make sure you have everything you need. The dogs were really well behaved and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

We definitely recommend COZY RETREAT IN SAN MARCOS. We left Montreal on July 24th 2017, and were there for 11 nights, and all we can say, is that Jeanne is a great hostess. Very charming and nice house, private and safe parking. We were supposed to rent directly in San Diego, and we changed it for Jeanne's house in San Marcos, it is a very COZY and quiet place. Very easy to reach San Diego downtown and beaches close to San Marcos, like the beautiful one in Carlsbad, 15 minutes from Jeanne's house. We will definitely be back there, and we recommend COZY RETREAT IN SAN MARCOS.

Jeanne User ProfileJeanne is a superhost.

I consider myself to be a very down to earth, easy going person. I love gardening, cooking, Interior Design, entertaining, Baseball, spending time with family especially our Grandchildren. My hubby of course who is my best friend! I believe in taking care of myself I go to the gym 4-5 days per week and I eat very healthy. I do have a huge sweet tooth so I do indulge every now and then. We love to travel when we can get away. My husband, Bill is a workaholic so it is difficult to getaway that often. Our favorite destination is Fiji. We are looking forward to going back there. We travel to Pennsylvania, Washington, and the East coast to see family. My life motto is to work hard, be kind to people and be the best Grandparents our Grand kids could ever ask for!
