Get away from the hustle and bustle in a tranquil, spacious, elegant studio, with private entrance; four-poster, California king-size bed; private three-quarter bath; and refrigerator, microwave, coffee makers, and breakfast snacks. It's just a ten-minute drive to SDSU, USD, the airport, beaches, and downtown and a short walk to public transportation, art, and culture. You’ll love its location in the charming, historic urban village of Kensington, which boasts trendy cafes, gourmet restaurants, a brewery, shops, the retro Ken Cinema, and more. We welcome people of all ages, races, religions, nationalities, and sexual orientations. The space is perfect for discerning couples, solo adventurers, parents with one small child, and business travelers looking for a calm haven.
Our 400-square-foot studio efficiency has it's own private entrance and outdoor sitting area, and it shares only one wall with the rest of the quiet household. There is ample private parking on our brick driveway. With its bay of mirrors, yoga mats, and free weights, you'll have plenty of space in which to stretch or work out, unless you prefer to try out the Pilates, personal trainer, or yoga studios a few blocks away. For the musically inclined, we have an acoustic guitar available in the room, as well as an assortment of books from which to choose while you sunbathe at the beach. Beach chairs, an umbrella, and beach towels are also available for your use. Breakfast snacks are included to enhance your experience, though a full breakfast is not offered. We can accommodate a small, house-trained dog or cat. Please plan to pay an additional cleaning charge of $50 for the entire stay, payable in cash upon departure, if you will be traveling with a pet.
