We have been at small resorts all over the world and RV was always our favorite. We love the ambiance and beauty of RV, and the friendliness and warmth of the employees always make a visit special. It’s the best and our guests from Texas love it.
The top-notch tennis facilities and exquisite service at Rancho Valencia first drew us to become an owner. After the renovation, we fell in love with Rancho Valencia all over again—the new fitness amenities, owner’s wine cellar, and 2 new restaurants! We loved it so much we purchased a second interest. Now that our friends also love to come here for tennis, spa and the fitness programs such as yoga, pilates, and spinning, it just felt right to purchase our third interest!
Certainly one of the reasons we made the Villas our home away from home is the great ambiance and “spa-like” atmosphere combined with the fabulous tennis facilities and staff. It also doesn’t hurt that the beaches are so nearby. The new restaurants at Rancho Valencia are both fabulous. Another reason we made this our second home is also the weather which is highly dependable year-round….70 degrees give or take a few.
We like the country feel with city, beach, golf, and tennis close by. San Diego airport is nearby with lots of flight options and Orange County or Palomar Airport are also both excellent options.
