4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3000 Sqft Single Level Ranch on 10 acre Private Hilltop
About Arji Rashidi
We have 4 young children, we love the outdoors to include camping, off-roading, hiking and exploring new places. We travel often and love the opportunity to make our home available for others to enjoy our little slice of heaven when we are away.
Arji Rashidi purchased this House in 2013
Why Arji Rashidi chose Escondido
We purchased this property for the privacy, tranquility and spectacular views that it offers. We have 4 young children and love watching them grow up on 10 acres of land to let their imaginations run wild. We love waking up each morning to take in the views with our morning cup of coffee. The views never get old and the peace and quiet offers the perfect retreat to come home to each day. We absolutely love our home.

Family Wedding at the Safari Park
The home was a perfect location for access to the San Diego Safari Park where our family was attending a wedding. Home was clean and very spacious, with plenty of room for all 10 of us. Owner was very accommodating to our need to check in a little early and responded to all requests immediately. Wish we had had more time to enjoy the home with its great views and outdoor areas. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Great family vacation home!
We had a wonderful time here! The house had everything we needed and more. The kids loved the jacuzzi and sandbox. I had a few questions and Arji responded quickly. We went to SD Zoo Safari Park and were exhausted after 5 hours. It literally took us only 3 minutes to get back to the house. Great location and secluded for privacy. I would highly recommend!
What incredible views
Had a small family celebration at this amazing property that overlooks the San Diego Safari. The house had views from everywhere and in the mornings I sat out on the patio and listened to the elephants trumpeting. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Gorgeous home/property with stunning views
We could not have been happier with our stay at this amazing family home/"ranch." From the moment we made inquiry, through our visit to see the property, and then through the stay itself, the owner was available, efficient, kind, and generous. He simply could not have been more accommodating.
The home and grounds are spotless and pristine. This family clearly enjoys making their life together there on the hilltop in Escondido, and it is amazing to me that they share their space with such openness. We were eager to leave it in the same condition in which we found it---the very least we could do--as the owners take such obvious pride in their investment.
There was not one thing we would change. Every detail had been attended to, and the owner was available via text/phone for any question we may have had. Directions were spelled out, with photos to help, and placed in a notebook for easy reference. I cannot emphasize how clean and tidy the home is---very, very welcoming.
It can be awkward to move into a family's primary residence. The owners did everything possible to mitigate that awkwardness. While their belongings were about the house in expected places, they did not overwhelm, and the owner communicated very well about which items we were free to use and where we were welcome to place our things.
The views from the deck were stunning; we enjoyed evenings around the fire pit reconnecting with family, and awakening in the morning to the sounds of the lions/elephants below at the Safari Park. Just beautiful.
We give this home our very highest recommendation and this family our deepest thanks. We would advise, though, that only those who would respect this special home and family come here. It kills us to imagine that any piece of it might be misused!
Our overall experience was excellent. We are so grateful that this family shares their home so our family could enjoy it and make memories of our own.

Evie and Roger,
You both were such wonderful guests. You did such a wonderful job taking great care of our home that even our house cleaners commented on how clean you left the home. We appreciated that very much. Our home is very special to us and it fills us with joy that you and your family were able to enjoy it as much as we do. Thank you and of course you’re welcome back anytime.
Very nice and comfortable home.
Perfect house for a safari park weekend with the kids. We all had a great time.
Beautiful home away from home
This review is long over due. We stayed here the first weekend of July 2017.
This home is beautiful and was truly our home away from home. Everything about this place was amazing. The home is very spacious and had more than enough room for all 10 of us.
The view is incredible! The home sits on top of a hill that gives you a panoramic view of the San Diego Safari Park. Our main purpose for traveling to the San Diego area was to visit the Safari Park, which is only a 5 minute drive. (Fun fact: once you're at the park entrance/ticket booths and you look up towards the hills, you can see the house.)
There is a hiking trail behind the chicken coop. The trail leads to the top of a hill where you can get an even better view of everything.
The owner has amazing customer service! He was very quick to respond whenever I emailed or texted him. When checking out, we couldn't get the lockbox open to put the house key back in. A text was sent to the owner and he was able to quickly respond and remotely reset the code.
If we ever make it back down to the San Diego area in the future, we will book this rental home again! It is worth every penny!
