PLEASE DO NOT SEND INQUIRIES FOR OVERNIGHT, WEEKEND, OR FEW DAY STAYS... we cannot accommodate. Thank you for reading & understanding.
“East Meets West” in this Asian inspired, architectural gem. Originally built in 1920 & Remodeled by its owners in 2005 to maintain the integrity of the craftsmanship, this custom designed home of 3600 sq. ft. features 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom and was built with meticulous attention to detail using the finest quality materials, many imported from Thailand & Indonesia.
A sophisticated yet California casual home in the center of Coronado Village, it is located just 3 blocks from the charming downtown of Coronado with its delightful shops and restaurants and numerous services.
One block from the central park (Spreckles Park) and 1.5 block from the Stunning Public Library.
This architectural gem is considered by many to be one of the finest homes on the Island. The lush gardens have been ranked among the “top 10” outdoor gardens in the city. This home typifies indoor outdoor living and takes full advantage of what many consider to be “the best climate in the world”. The “great room” kitchen, dining and family room features over-sized French doors that open up almost the entire back of the house to the exotic garden with imported rock wall fountain/pond. Featuring a patio with Indonesian day bed and a gas grill, this oasis is an ideal setting for entertaining family and friends, or a quiet refuge in which to relax with a good book.
Easy Living Escape is exactly that.. a wonderful tranquil retreat home.
We are available to people who appreciate this home for what it is, exceptional, and are willing to take care as if their own home. When you inquire please add a brief note about your visit, number of guests and who you are, as we screen our guests to feel confident about who will be staying in our home. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation!!

Visa, Mastercard, cashier's check or wire transfer are accepted. If wanting to pay by credit card, pls note a 2.9% credit card fees will be deducted from the security deposit before refunding.

Car: Recommended

We are located 7 blocks from the beautful 1 mile long white sand beach in Coronado. Located in the center of town we are 2 blocks from the Public Library, 6 blocks from the bay, 7 blocks from the golf course. There are 6 bikes with our home and it's easy to ride everwhere in town and ride down the Silver strand 10 straight miles.

San Diego is America's Finest City!! with the Zoo, Sea World, Legoland, right here, and Disney land 1.75 hrs away.

During the summer months there is concert in the park at the central park in town, Our home is close enough to enjoy the music from our back yard without having to drag everything to the park for a picnic. Fire works can be seen several times throughout the week on our upper breezeway. We have a magical home centrally located in town.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I have been a co owner of a sweater Company for 21 yrs: Rico Hand knits based here in San Diego, which was the direct manufacturer producing cotton hand & loom knit sweaters. Our sales primarily focused on sales to boutiques throughout the USA, Canada & England. Our manufacturing facility, located in Thailand thus the Asian influence in our home, has now been converted into a resort called Rico Resort We have a non- profit Thai Foundation that has supported university scholarships for disadvantaged children in Thailand. Our company scholarship program has graduated 12 kids that are all excelling in their adult career lives and helping their parents; and now having families of their own. I have traveled extensively for our business and am a native of Coronado, my parents' having had two clothing stores here in town until the early 90's prior to my going into wholesale & manufacturing. Now semi retired, I love to take care of my home and welcome guests who appreciate all the details and uniqueness of my home.

Why the Owner Chose Coronado Village, Coronado, CA, USA:
This is our primary residence and the long time family home of Corinne, since she was 9.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're in a great neighborhood, safe and quiet. You will be living in a small town with all the benefits of a big city. Coronado is a town rich in history, blessed with a Mediterranean climate and one of the most beautiful and pristine white sand beaches in the world. This uniquely endearing city boasts innumerable parks, an 18-hole public golf course with affordable fees and club house with restaurant adjacent to San Diego Bay, the world famous Hotel Del Coronado (one of the few remaining beach front hotels in California, and one of 7 wooden building of it's stature over 100+ yrs old, left in the USA). There are unlimited opportunities for bicycling around the island, with 14 municipal tennis courts, boat rentals at Coronado Yacht Club for sailing or kayaking on the bay, surfing, surfing lessons and swimming at the beach & the local newly constructed community pool. Coronado is resort living at it's best, easy to walk around & ride bikes, wide streets and friendly community living in one of the most secure and safest towns in America.
