This stunning six-bedroom Southern California vacation rental is 7,000 square feet of gorgeous, relaxing, lake-view vacation space! With a game room, library, a private hot tub and lap pool, and eight TVs throughout, this spectacular Tuscan style villa offers amenities galore! You may find that you want to stay at home your whole trip, lounging by the pool, soaking in the hot tub, or enjoying drinks out in the gazebo.

This lovely villa is in the exclusive Rancho Santa Fe community, only 20 minutes north of bustling San Diego, and ten miles from the heart of Rancho Santa Fe. While more peaceful and secluded than staying in the city proper, you'll still enjoy easy day trips to museums, the San Diego Zoo, and beautiful Southern California beaches. Legoland in Carlsbad is just 19 miles west, and right in the neighboring communities of Rancho Santa Fe and Escondido you'll find many different restaurants, galleries, and shops.

This custom-built Southern California retreat takes advantage of the great year-round weather with multiple outdoor patios, perfect for your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the afternoon. There are panoramic views of nearby Lake Hodges and the coastal mountains, with many gorgeous spots for outdoor entertaining.

You'll enjoy three distinct outdoor sitting and dining areas, along with plenty of peaceful, quiet spots to steal away with a good book. And of course, you'll want to spend time in the saltwater pool, complete with a cave and waterfall and the eight-person hot tub for a gorgeous view of the lake. (Please be aware that the pool is usually left unheated.

When you do come inside, a lovely sitting area overlooks the water - this is a perfect spot for unwinding at the end of the day. Throughout this vacation home, there are multiple TVs with DirecTV and Apple TV, a DVD player, and VCR, as well as iPod docks throughout the home. There is also WiFi so you'll be able to easily look up recipes, find nearby attractions, or stay in touch while you are away.

The gourmet kitchen is truly a work of art. You'll have beautiful stainless steel appliances, including a state-of-the-art double Viking oven and six-burner stove-top, two refrigerators, a separate pantry area, an espresso maker, French press, and a coffee grinder, as well as a Bosch double dishwasher! Whether you're planning a festive holiday meal or just heating leftovers up in the microwave, you'll find everything you could ever need here.

This gorgeous getaway has three wood-burning fireplaces - one in the breakfast room, one in the library, and one in the wonderful master bedroom. There's also a game room complete with table tennis and foosball - perfect for kids of all ages.

At night, the six bedrooms will sleep up to 14 guests, with a king sized bed in the beautiful master bedroom. This relaxing space also has its own fireplace, sitting area, lake view, and gorgeous master bathroom, complete with soaking tub and a separate shower. A second master bedroom has a queen sized bed, while the remaining four bedrooms each have a queen bed, along with sofa sleepers and/or twin sized beds.

All bedrooms feature high thread count linens and in all of the four full bathrooms and two half baths, you will find Egyptian cotton towels. Two small dogs (or one medium dog) are welcome with an additional nightly fee. At this sunny California retreat, you will also have a large front-loading washer and dryer, so there's no need to over-pack or accumulate an unwieldy dirty clothes pile for the trip home.

From here, ocean beaches are about a 20 minute drive west. Attractions closer to the Villa include beer tasting and brewery tours at Stone Brewing Company, five miles north and the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve for hiking, biking and equestrian trails just to the west. In addition the outdoor activities of Lake Hodges are right out side the front door of this villa. Of course, your favorite activity here may just be hanging out pool-side, relaxing in the hot tub, or lounging around one of the lovely outdoor seating areas, viewing picturesque Lake Hodges.

For an unforgettable Southern California vacation rental, this amazing villa offers luxurious amenities, breathtaking views, and even its own fruit tree and avocado grove! When you need an impressive retreat for up to 14 guests, Rancho Santa Fe Lakeview Villa is the ideal destination.
