HOA COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT
The Coronavirus continues to spread throughout San Diego County as it is around the country and the world. The good news is that there is more testing and fewer cases proportionately are resulting in hospitalization and death. We are also learning how to manage the “new normal” and what behaviors are most likely to reduce the spread. That being said, we are not as concerned about the use of the parks, trails and courts as we were initially, but we anticipate that all residents will continue to be very cautious, wear masks, even when outside and in the company of others and social distance when greeting neighbors in the community. We also encourage you to keep your in-home gatherings to small numbers of family members.
The CA.Dept.of Public Health, summary of Guidelines for Public Gatherings (effective 10/10/2020): Gatherings with multiple families are only allowed outdoors (limit 3 households). These gatherings must last no longer than 2 hours, require guests to wear masks, maintain a minimum of 6 foot distancing and sanitize hands frequently. Note: CLH has established a group maximum of 18 people. If food is being provided, it should be served by one person who sanitizes their hands frequently. Self-serve items from communal containers should not be used. It is also suggested that you make a list of all attendees so they can be notified if someone comes down with Covid within 48 hours of the gathering. Of course, no one who has been recently exposed or feels ill should attend. We thank you for abiding by these state guidelines and for your continued cooperation in helping to keep each other safe during these difficult times.
Lastly, we want to thank everyone for helping insure that there are fewer non-residents passing through our community and using the facilities uninvited. The gate code restrictions seem to be working well and we hope that you have not been too inconvenienced.
Sincerely, Candlelight Hills Board of Directors

Candlelight Hills Highlights
A small gated community located in the city of Escondido which has around 150,000 residents and is one of San Diego’s oldest, incorporated 1888, suburban communities. Candlelight Hills is nestled between Highway 78 and I-15 in the highly regarded southwestern portion of the City of Escondido. This setting allows for quick access via I-15 into Downtown San Diego or via Highway 78 for easy access to the coast as well as the other north county communities of San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside. While conveniences abound within a few minutes drive the best part is that once you enter the 71 home Candlelight Hills community the world changes to one of tranquility and quiet. Many of the homes have views to Bernardo Mountain, Daley Ranch, Mt San Marcos, Mt Israel or even the Palomar Mountain range while other sites feature tree lined pathways or wooded slopes. Houses are landscaped and placed on lots so that yards generally don’t look out onto your neighbors yard.
A couple of miles of trails are incorporated through approximately 22 acres of open space within this gated HOA. Two parks, each with gazebos, tables and benches to kick back and observe a volleyball game or watch the children at play are a primary asset. A third park like area with another gazebo sits alongside the horseshoe pit and basketball facility. A lighted Tennis and Pickleball Court complex round out the amenities for residents and guests to enjoy. A wide variety of major grocery chains including Albertsons, Aldi, Major Market, Jimbos, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, and Vons are all less than 5 minutes drive without having to get onto a freeway. A Rite Aid, Walgreen’s and two CVS pharmacies are also scattered between these grocery outlets.
Various restaurants and shops abound in these local shopping center areas along with major retailers including Home Depot, Staples, Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods and a Beverages & More. The California Center for the Arts, Escondido, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Westfield North County Mall, Lake Hodges along with Daley Ranch and Lake Dixon can all be accessed via numerous corridors allowing quick and easy access to almost everything including the new Palomar hospital.
