About Rosemary

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 is the homeowner. Rosemary is an interior designer and the property manager.

Rosemary purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rosemary chose San Diego

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

The king size bed was the best part!

  • 3 of 5

2 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs stayed here. The studio was clean and it came with everything you would need to cook your own meals. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. The fold out bed is not comfortable at all. The court yard was beautiful but we were not comfortable allowing our dogs to play in the yard due to a tree that is poisonous and was dropping its flowers. We had one issue and Rosemary was quick to respond. There are a lot of rules and many instances in your agreement where you maybe charged extra fees. It was off putting when we first read all the paper work but since there are no refunds once you book we naturally kept our reservation. The neighborhood is beautiful and we loved the area of town that this studio is in. Overall it was a good experience and with we had an amazing time at the beach and out on the town!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback about the sofabed and the listing of fines in the rental agreement. We are putting a new mattress topper in today so that should make it more comfortable than a traditional sofabed mattress. We will also review the way we present the fines as we don't want to put anyone off but do need to make sure rules are followed to keep the place peaceful, comfortable and looking nice. It's a tough balance but clearly we need to revisit it. We do warn guests that the trumpet tree is supposed to be poisonous for dogs so I understand your caution but we have never had an animal get sick from it and this is a popular spot for guests with dogs. Thanks again for staying with San Diego Eco Rentals. It was a pleasure to host you.

We might not stay in a hotel again after this!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had 3 adults, 1 teenager and a toddler. We were all extremely happy with the accomodations. We loves the courtyard. There was enough room. The place had all the essentials and a few extras that were very much appreciated. The hostess was one text away and replied immediately. I highly recommend this place!

Nice stay in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our small puppy for two days. The studio is clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you need. We especially enjoyed the courtyard for our puppy and the quiet neighborhood. We can highly recommend this property.

Great place in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

My dogs and I stayed at the Eco Studio for 4 days and I loved it! It is very cute, and extremely clean. The courtyard was great for the dogs and during warmer months it would be a great place to relax outside. The owners have provided nice towels, wonderful sheets on the very comfortable bed, a nice TV & couch and a roomy closet that you can hang up your clothes and store your luggage in. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes & utensils, and you have a fridge and stove if you choose to eat your meals in. The location is great - it was a $9. Uber ride to Gaslamp District and it was about a 15 min. drive to Coronado. The neighborhood is beautiful and my dogs and I enjoyed our walks very much. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others. Oh, and the price is great - so much more value and enjoyment than you would get in a hotel.

This looks like the place for us

  • 4 of 5

The Eco Studio was the perfect location for us - We didn't have to take a highway to most of the spots we wanted to visit which was a big plus!!! The furnishing were a bit dated but everything was neat and clean - The bed and pillows were incredibly comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet. The studio is a good fit for two. We look forward to future visits.
