Villa Santa Rosa
Villa Santa Rosa is a 4 beds, 3 baths, and approximately 3,500 square feet home located in the City of Bonita, Ca. Bonita is nestled between the cities of Chula Vista, National City, and San Diego.
The word Bonita is a feminine word for "beautiful" in the Spanish language. Bonita’s climate is a combination of the coastal and inland valley climates of San Diego County: warmer (and sunnier during the May Gray and June Gloom periods) than areas directly adjacent to San Diego Bay or the coast, but not as hot as communities in inland valleys In summer, Bonita's climate is pleasant.
Bonita is considered a rural and equestrian enclave in the middle of suburbia. One of the most visible features of Bonita recreational life is the walking trail which loops the Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course in central Bonita. Hundreds of residents walk, run, and ride this trail every day for pleasure and fitness, and the trail has become a vital component of Bonita life for many residents.
Equestrianism has long been a part of the Bonita community, and many trails exist throughout the Lower Sweetwater Valley. There are a number of connections to trails external to Bonita as well.
In addition, Bonita offers the Bonita Equestrian Therapy which is dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing therapeutic riding activities in a safe, effective and compassionate environment. This recreational activity can improve coordination, muscular strength, motor skills, flexibility, and self-esteem, among other skills.

Sessions working with horses on the ground builds a direct connection with the horse, builds trust and communication, and provides an opportunity for emotional release, unconditional acceptance, and a sense of accomplishment.
