They were not kidding when they said it was the good life. Our unit was beautiful. Totally updated. Washer dryer (stackables, fine for 2 people) in our 1 bedroom unit. 2 huge closets in mbr. We had service once a day to exchange dirty towels and empty trash. I don't have one negative thing to say. I loved everything about this place. If u are looking for a fast paced vacation, go somewhere else. But if u are looking to relax, or if tennis is your thing, this is the place. The pool area was clean and well kept. Nice patio furniture. When we were there the only people we saw at the pool were a couple of older couples, which suited us just fine. The scenery is amazing. This was our first stay and I can't wait to go back.
And the nicest thing! I had written ahead that we would be there for our 15th anniversary and during our stay they delivered a bottle of sparkling cider with a nice note. It was so thoughtful. A really nice touch.
Well done to the staff and management. All around wonderful experience.

A great community surrounded on three sides by state and national parks. Horse trails, two horse centers (1 English 1 western) a golf course, driving range, 2 pools, and trails galore! I love the sense of community and friendliness here.

First of all this is not a really great location for vacation. There is a swimming pool on site and horseback riding nearby. Our first day here I put in about 2 miles of pacing in the apartment, barefoot and by the end of the day the heels and balls of my feet were literally black. There is a sign that you can put on the outside of your door that says "Privacy Please" however, they still come in your apartment if you are not there. I called the front desk and spoke with the manager, Patty and she told me that, of course they serviced the room and that "Privacy Please" is not the same as "Do Not Disturb." So I told her that I wanted NO ONE to enter the apartment while we are here unless I call and ask for some service and she agreed. We left to go to the grocery store and when we returned they had been in the apartment...AGAIN! They also moved some of our stuff. I will not ever stay here again. By the way, we are clean people and clean up for ourselves and we wash the towels and sheets ourselves as well if we have a washer and dryer in the unit (which we do here).

Our unit was great. Clearly renovated, carpet drapes, linens, paint. Very roomy and very clean Fully equipped and free wifi. Interior hall entrance even though this place is clearly 30 years old. We can see that they are still in the process of renovating other units. Nice setting, fireplace, private patio with your own electric grill. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place! Lots of families enjoying the beautiful pools. OH, FULL SIZE washer and dryer in the 1 BR unit! There are 2 other 8 ft closets in the MBR with lots of room.

The only complaint is that this place is 15 minutes from Ramona, which has quite a number and variety of restaurants, and 50-60+ minutes from San Diego or the coast. Other than the lovely pools and racquet facility, and a "rough' gold course about 10 minutes away, you feel a bit remote. I'm talking winding 2 lane roads.

One of the fastest, easiest and most pleasant check-ins for a time share we've experienced.

Room tip: no elevators s if stairs are a problem stick to the 1st floor, but we are on hills

We had an amazing time this weekend. If you want quality time with your family with no distractions this is the place. We loved it, the staff is friendly, there is lots to do with kids, even a movie poolside under the stars.
