“We had a great experience swapping with Kate in Rancho Santa Fe. It was our first time in the area and we discovered the great beaches and waves, and the seaside cities like Del Mar, or la Jolla, which were very different and both great fun. Of course we took two trips to San Diego and Coronado Bay . Kate's home, in a guarded community was more inland, and we enjoyed driving through the luxuriant vegetation. There were also lots of fields and ranches. So there were many different ambiances and experiences throughout our days and visits. Kate and her family's home is one of the most comfortable homes I have ever been in. It's very large, very well decorated and has everything you could possibly need, from a massage bed, to a pool and spa, including a grand piano, which was great for us who love to play. Communication with Kate was really easy and efficient, we set up our exchange very quickly! They took very good care of our home. Kate is also a very generous person, and we thank her warmly for this exchange.”
Kate's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Kate’s house is fantastic! It is located in a upscale gated community area - a very quiet vineyard/hill area which is like a resort. The house itself is lovely - spacious and light, with a big yard out back with swimming pool and hot tub. Kate was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. Everything worked out really well and we had a great vacation.”
“We had the most amazing family holiday in Rancho Santa Fe (25mins from San Diego). Kate and Dales house is beautiful, large, tastefully decorated, very clean and secure within a gated complex. The private pool and spa was great and was very safe for the kids and provided hours of fun. We ate outside every day at the tables and BBQ area and sat at the fire pit each evening. The community pool and gym area within the complex is like a Tuscan vila. Kate was very helpful and provided any information required. We truly had a wonderful holiday - Kate, Dale and kids thank you so much. Elaine & Ronan”

“We loved hanging out by the pool and sitting in the hot tub. Practicing our putting on the green. Cooking burgers in the fabulous outdoor kitchen. Del Mar and La Jolla were an easy drive where we enjoyed great shopping and marvelous restaurants. Oh yes, and watching the sea lions! ”
