About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
When you come to the flat from a day exploring the beaches, parks, and charming districts of San Diego, you step into an adult playground all your own. Use the gas BBQ and outdoor dining table while you enjoy the lush landscapes, raised bed gardens, bamboo fences and curving hard-scapes around you. Dine on the patio as you watch the sun set over downtown San Diego's skyline. Look down into the garden for a more secluded, peaceful view.
The kitchen offers everything you need with fully stocked cookware, new stainless steel appliances, BBQ tools, dish and glassware, silverware, a full set of chef’s cookware, graters, strainers, steamers and much more. The television and iPod doc are both there to entertain you while you whip up culinary creations as well.
The living space offers a flat screen smart TV, Wifi, Blu-ray player, board games and books to help you unwind and let your mind play.
Use it as a work, sleep or play space. It has full bed with luxurious bedding to lounge on during the day and sleep comfortably at the end of your day's adventures. A custom designed and built floating shelf holds the Blu-ray player and IHome speaker/charger/alarm clock. Lounge and read a book or catch up on emails under the reading lamp in a playfully buttoned designer sitting chair.
The bathroom has been completely remodeled with shower and fixtures. All linens, toilet paper and paper towels included.
Use the two person dining table at meals, and convert it to a work-desk when you need to. When the weather is nice (95% of the time in San Diego!) enjoy the outdoor sitting table and BBQ.
The studio has black out blinds, double paned windows that shut out the city sounds, high ceilings, hardwood floors, a ceiling fan, heater, AC and all new cabinetry, tile, and fixtures. We love staying here, and hope you will too!
The studio also has soundproofed double doors that can be opened up to a neighboring rental. If you're interested in a larger space, or in vacationing with another couple or with kids, this a great way to share lodging with the option of privacy. Please let us know if you're interested in a double studio stay!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

This contemporary flat in the city is bordered on all sides by San Diego's most famous neighborhoods. A five-minute walk to the west takes visitors to the beautiful Little Italy area of downtown San Diego. Here you can stroll through coffee shops, boutiques, bars and some of the most unique specialty shops and restaurants San Diego has to offer. Have dinner and a cocktail at el Camino, or pick up hand made pasta and imported olives from assenti’s and bring them back to the cottage’s fully stocked kitchen to have an Italian dinner at home in the garden. Walk three blocks in the opposite direction to reach Balboa Park, the Old Globe theater, art museums and the famous Prado restaurant.
To the south, it is just minutes to the Convention Center, Gas Lamp District, and Petco Park. To the north, visitors can get lost in the architecture along Banker’s Hill and in Hillcrest daytime boutiques and buzzing nightlife.
Stroll to the nearby waterfront, visit Sea World, San Diego Marina District, Seaport Village, Horton plaza, Symphony Hall, the Embarcadero, and of course, the famous San Diego zoo. These are all accessible by bus, car, trolley, or on foot.
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Our family has lived in Ramona since the 1960s, and works to refurbish homes in San Diego, hoping to breath new life into their communities. We worked together to transform this 1889 historic home into a contemporary playground for vacationers and a respite for business people. Rob is a green designer and builder who has innovated energy efficient homes in San Diego for 40 years. Deborah, his wife, has worked to design the landscape, raised bed gardens, and hard-scapes surrounding the house. I worked together with my parents to design the interiors, furnish the cottage, and make prints of my original paintings for the interiors. I have a masters degree in painting and lived in the bay area for the past ten years working with kids. We're a family of four generations of San Diego musicians, builders and artists who hope to host visitors and show them the best of what our home town has to offer. We love to travel, meet new people, and create. We hope that this flat feels like home to you.
