The villa is located approximately 30 minutes drive from San Diego in a suburb of Rancho Bernardo, a golf and tennis mecca. You can walk to Zagat rated restaurants and all shopping and grocery stores are a 5 minute drive away. The Rancho Bernardo Inn has a world class day spa and a 5 star restaurant, El Bizcocho, not to mention it's designer golf course. There is plenty of activities to do in the area like hiking, biking, kayaking, horseback riding and wine tasting. La Jolla, Del Mar with it race track, Encinitas with it's beaches and antiquing are all within a 30 minute drive as is the zoo, See World, and downtown San Diego. And, don't forget to visit Hillcrest for it's eateries. I've traveled the world and found no other place I'd rather be than in sunny Southern California.
I am a retired real estate professional and I find time for plenty of exercise, photography, tennis, mountain biking and of course travel. When I'm home, I'm usually busy pet sitting for friends while they travel. Otherwise, I'm looking for the next best place to go and experience.
I am a widow of 15 years so when I travel it's usually with a friend or two. I'm in my early 60's and couldn't ask for a better lifestyle!
