Public pool in Balboa Park is just over 2 miles from the Eco Studio.

Well behaved dog or cat allowed.

Keypad lock entry so your arrival time is flexible, you can let yourselves in whenever you pull into town.

Check-in after 4pm and Check-out before 12 noon. If you need an early check-in or late check-out, inquire at time of booking.

If the guest departs more than 30 minutes after the checkout time they will be charged a $50 late checkout fee. We need the full cleaning window to get the place sparkling clean for the next guest and when a departing guest leaves late it can impact the arriving guest, and that's not fair to them or to us.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are in our late-30s, we love cooking/eating, going to the beach, running, biking, hiking, yoga, reading. we work long hours during the week and have a quiet and relaxed lifestyle on the weekends. Sean works in renewable energy and rosemary is an interior designer and property manager.

Why the Owner Chose South Park:
Sean and I are eco-conscious. We installed 3 solar panel systems (one on the front house and one on the back house and one on the house in University Heights). There is a fast charging station with reserved parking for your electric car. We harvest rainwater and use laundry grey water for the landscape in the courtyard. The Eco Studio is the perfect combination of beautiful, comfortable yet also sustainable living.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
South Park is such a unique neighborhood. You will not find any cookie-cutter houses here, unless you consider the 100-year-old craftsman houses which are everywhere you look. It's a beautiful, vibrant, and friendly neighborhood. No big box chain stores/restaurants/shops. Everything has a mom & pop feel to it. But the chain stores are a short drive when you need them.
