About the neighbourhood
Because this property is surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest, there is an abundance of wildlife in the area. Seeing herds of deer and flocks of wild turkey in the mornings and afternoon, or any time of day for that matter, is not uncommon. In fact it would be uncommon NOT to see any deer or Turkey during your stay. Coyote, Fox, Rabbit, Chipmunks, the list goes on all also spotted often. You will also find some of the best hiking in Southern CA all right here. There are many trails within hiking distance to the property, and the Pacific Crest Trail runs through the Laguna Mountains just a few miles away. All is available literally a one hour drive from San Diego International Airport and beautiful Downtown San Diego.
Getting around
Due to the size of San Diego County and lack of good cheap public transportation (other than city limits), it is best to rent a car at the airport when you fly in. I would recommend this no matter where you stay, unless you stay downtown and do not want to venture far.
