Recent reviews of Independent Living in San Diego, CA
Rancho Santa Fe Villa in San Diego, CA
5.0

My wife and I have been at this 6 bed assisted living facility for almost 3 years. It is a beautiful home in a prestige area of north San Diego. The home has panoramic views of the rolling hills. Sometimes we see the hot air balloons go by. The facility is clean and tidy. My wife is 83 and I am 88. She is assisted living/memory and I am independent living. She has been in Hospice bedridden with Alzheimer's for 2 years and has to hand fed with pureed food and totally cared for. I'm sure she wouldn't get the care she has here at a larger facility. The caregivers are all friendly and extremely caring. Very nice meals are served 3 times a day. The Director of Activities plays music on the keyboard. Singing makes the residents come alive. He also has taught art painting with acrylics. I have never painted before, now I've painted over 30 pictures on canvas, surfboards, guitars etc. It gives me something to do and keeps my brain active. This is a superior facility compared to other ones I have heard about. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would rate Rancho Santa Fe Villa a 5.

So far it's been very good. I don't have any complaints. I can call them, they are very receptive to phone calls. The staff is very receptive. They give you choices at meals so you always have options. Others have even told me that we found a good place. I am very happy with them so far.
