Old Castle Cottage sits among a stretch of several sprawling and very beautiful estates. Our neighbors are kind, gracious, and respectful. We seek to reciprocate by being good neighbors in every respect.
Public train and bus transportation is 15 minutes away in Escondido. You may wish to use it to travel to the coast. It is great fun to take the train from the coast in Oceanside/Carlsbad to San Diego. You will capture a terrific view of the coastline that is only accessible by train track. From San Diego, you can then catch the trolley for a fun day of sight seeing!
Come to the San Diego Fair at the Del Mar Fairgrounds! It runs Mid-May until the 4th of July!
We have an abundance of beautiful birds. Our current catalog of different birds sighted here is over 40! You will wake up to their song and hear them singing again in the late afternoon. Wonderful ambiance.
It is not uncommon to see a coyote cross the hillside in the early morning or dusk hours. They are fearful of humans and quite skittish. You may hear a coyote howl in the middle of the night. Some folks love the "ambiance" this adds. I cannot promise you will hear coyotes howl and I cannot prevent them, should they choose to howl.
