On Arrival...: On arrival, guests at The Retreat are immediately captivated. Its panoramic verandah and entryway rest atop a short stairway, and the fresh scent of the juniper bushes welcomes you and your guests on arrival. Tasteful landscaping, simple Spanish Contemporary architecture and attention to detail bring the exterior of this home to life. Before coming inside, guests will find ample parking in the drive below with additional curbside spaces always available.

Hardwood and travertine floors throughout, beautiful Spanish-tile detailing and hand-crafted crown molding give this home a blend of contemporary and classic appeal.

The living room provides an enormous space for entertaining. The intimacy of a wood-burning fireplace is balanced by fantastic views from extra-large windows and french doors inviting you to the outdoor living area. The dining room offers formal seating for 12, whether you order in or decide to prepare your own delicious meal in our fully furnished gourmet kitchen. The family room- complete with gas fireplace, 52” LCD HDTV, DVD/BlueRay player and surround sound- offers kids and adults alike a place to enjoy themselves.


Outside...: Outside, enjoy the blissful San Diego sunshine from the privacy of our sparkling pool and spa.

The pool is complete with plenty of chaise lounges, furniture, a fully equipped BBQ, and even a diving board for your family and friends to enjoy.

The pool-side suite is opulent with flowing linens, a California King bed, a spacious bath with dual vanities and sinks and ample closet space. The city-side suite is more intimate but bold- with a California King bed, rich dark woods, a full bath, and the same spectacular city views as the verandah. This suite is also home to the library, for guests that might have forgot their favorite book at home.
