There are lots of neighborhoods that could meet your wants/needs.
How much are you willing to spend?
Ocean views can cost you more, mountain views are a bit easier. I would recommend any beach community such as Carlsbad, Encitinas, Del Mar if you want to be right on the coast.
La Mesa / Mt Helix, Poway, Escondido if you want rural, mountain views, etc.
I would love to assist your search.
You can contact me anytime for suggestions.
