This is a beautiful, spacious home in a great area. Well stocked with everything our group of 7 needed for the weekend. Thank you Char and Jerry for sharing your beautiful home. We had a wonderful weekend! We especially enjoyed the peaceful backyard space with view and access to Lake Murray.

We were a partie of 11 people. Charlene' s house is gorgeous. It was very clean and we felt right at home there. Enough space for all of us. Her husband Jerry was very helpful and showed us every room and explained everything we needed to know about the pool and other equipment we could use. They also provided us with great information about good restaurants and other things around this place. (We can recommend the Italian restaurant Little Roma, very kid friendly) The view of the lake is a big bonus, relaxing and quiet. The kids had a great time in the pool, even it was a bit small. Overall, we had a great time staying in her house and we would recommend it without hesitation.

Charlene and Jerry's place was perfect for our July 4th family get-together. There were 8 of us and everyone had plenty of space. The kitchen is fully stocked (pots & pans, oil, condiments, you name it!). There is also a Keurig machine with K-cups and creamer included. Jerry met us at check-in and thoroughly showed us the in-and-outs of the house (how to work the pool, all the lighting, how to work the BBQ and fire pit). The pool and spa was great and was a good size for us. It's nice that the pool also has a cover, so leaves/bugs aren't getting into the pool when not in use. There are games in the closet, in addition to a ping pong table in the backyard. There are also fishing rods if you decide to go fishing; we ended up using 2 of their rods to go fishing - just be sure to purchase a permit and license before you do! The master bedroom goes right out to the pool, and you can hear the fountain waterfall at night if you leave the windows open. Since we spent July 4th here, we were able to watch the fireworks right from the backyard! We will definitely come back here for another family get-together in the future if we are ever in the area.

Charlene's place was the perfect retreat for our mini family reunion, with 4 adult couples and 3 small kids everyone had plenty of space and a bedroom to themselves. The house was very well stocked with lots of coffee, things to cook with, plates, cups, etc. The BBQ worked great to cook a big meal on and the backyard was a huge hit for everyone! Getting in and out was super easy and there were lots of good places to eat nearby, with downtown San Diego only a short drive away. The lake made for a beautiful scenic retreat to sit and look at or walk off a huge meal. This was probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in on Airbnb and if we are ever back in the area we will definitely stay again.

Loved this house. The waterfall and pond were beautiful. You could sit in the living room and open the window and listen to the sound of the water falling. The master bedroom on the second floor opens to the pool and spa. I didn't have to worry about the kids falling in the pool because it has a substantial pool cover. The pool was just the right size for the grandkids, ages 6 and 3 - not too big. The backyard has lush grass that the kids and dog really enjoyed. We used the trail accessible from the back yard that goes around the lake. It is a paved asphalt trail that many people from the area enjoy using. We saw birds and wildlife from the trail. This house has a large well supplied kitchen that we used to prepare meals. You can eat at a small table or at the large dining room table. We did both. At rental houses it is often hard to find a table that will seat the entire group, but this table was excellent. There was a game closet with toys for the kids and also some toys on the patio. This house made for a great vacation.
