About Emily

We met in 2002 training for a marathon. We married in Mexico 3 years later. We have two school age children who keep life fun and busy.

Emily purchased this house in 2002

Why Emily chose Bay Park

Our Studio Suite is very private. It is a beautifully converted former garage. We raised the roof, insulated the walls, added plumbing, a kitchenette, new windows (including a skylight) and a beautiful front door in all glass. You will be able to park in the driveway and enter the studio through your own gate (shown in listing) and into your own private and secure entrance/front door. There are two solid pocket doors separating you from us. The kitchenette separates the studio from the main house. On one side of the kitchenette (as seen in photos) you will find all of your kitchen essentials. On the opposite, you will find the laundry room. We too utilize the laundry room, but only when the suite is not occupied. A portion of the kitchenette/laundry is our pantry space, but again, we do not utilize the pantry while the suite is occupied. The pantry cabinets will feel very separate from he kitchenette. Please peruse the photos. They capture all of the kitchenette space you will enjoy and you will be able to see the pocket door in which I mention previously. We have our own refrigerator in the main house. However, we have some frozen (fruit) items stored in the studio freezer. We are happy to share. To be clear, the refrigerator in the kitchenette is for our guests use.

Note: The operable skylight lets in a lot of natural light.

What makes this house unique

The suite includes two ceiling fans, but like most of San Diego, we too are without AC. You will have a nice ocean breeze. We have a great heater for the cooler winter months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great weekend at Emily & Kris's apartment with my husband and 1 year old son. Emily provided me with detailed information regarding the stay prior to arrival and was so welcoming. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house rather than a VRBO! I inquired if she would happen to have a humidifier for my son and she provided this along with a fan because he likes white noise to sleep. Emily even left us a bag of beach toys outside for us because she knew we were spending the weekend at the beach. These details were much appreciated and made our stay perfect! The bed was comfortable and the bathroom modern and overall the studio has a very relaxing environment. The attached kitchen is great, especially when traveling with a toddler and who am I kidding my husband requires frequent meals too! lol. Book a stay here. You won't regret this welcoming studio suite in a central location to anything you would possibly want to do in SD! Thanks Emily & Kris

Family-oriented space in a residential neighborhood nicely situated in San Diego

  • 4 of 5

As two adults and an infant, we rented this studio for a little over a week while visiting family, friends and spots we appreciate in San Diego. The owners are kind, outgoing and reliable. We were warmly welcomed, let a parking space, and lent baby materials (i.e. Pack N Play), allowed to do laundry... The rental is as described and pictured on-line ; a nice shower and natural light in the bathroom, a comfy couch, kitchen space to make breakfast, prepare picnics and other meals, lovely private entrance. We would recommend staying here to parents with a child and would be very happy contacting Emily and Kris for our next stay.

Fantastic Location!

  • 4 of 5

This property is close to everything and a must if you’re planning a trip to Sea World. The studio was extremely clean and I am quite picky! There were plenty of towels for 2 adults and an 8 yr old. Plenty of space for our clothing and everything else we brought with us!

I wish I could give 10 stars for this clean, comfortable and convenient studio!

  • 5 of 5

I must first start by saying I was very skeptical about renting a place using VRBO. I had never done it in the past and am quite picky about sleeping anywhere besides my own home. This studio blew me away! Everything from booking to checking out, and everything in between, went SO smoothly. Emily is a phenomenal host -- so friendly, fast, helpful, and inviting. The binder of information that greeted us upon our arrival was personalized and informational. Everything we needed during our stay (even with a two year old) was at the studio and was of very high quality ... ex. the towels, toilet, bedding, dishes were so dang nice, felt like I was at a resort. The bed was extremely comfortable. Temperature of the place was perfect. Location of the studio was extremely convenient -- literally took about 10 minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go in San Diego. I honestly can't say enough positive things about this place. I would without hesitation, recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay. Not a single complaint here! We will be coming back! :)

Great Host and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This great find was 2 minutes walk from a mountain trail and only a few mins drive to beaches, Old Town, and Seaworld.

Great hostess who went out of her way to make our stay a good one. Better than a hotel. Amenities were fantastic to, from the filtered water to the comode.

We did hear their family from time to time but it wasnt bad and to be expected since there is a shared wall in the kitchenette part of the studio.

Would stay again. Only fits 2 adults comfortably. I wouldn't recommend any more than that.
