Property description

Welcome to our humble abode! We are located in sunny Vista, about 45 miles (72 km) north of San Diego airport, 10 miles (16 km) east from coastal Carlsbad, and 100 miles (160 km) south of Los Angeles. Our simple no frills place is ideal for a person or couple seeking an affordable place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the urban sprawl. It’s a private unassuming place in the peaceful surroundings of a rural neighborhood.

Our studio is attached to the main family house but is on its own level and has its own private off street parking spot, separate entrance with small patio/deck at front and back. It’s a very basic but bright studio that contains a queen size bed, a small sofa bed (which can sleep one child), one small bathroom (shower, toilet and sink), kitchenette and separate washer and dryer. While the kitchenette does not contain a stove, it is equipped with all the other standard appliances; refrigerator, microwave, toaster, hot plate, and coffee maker and there is also a gas barbecue on the patio. The studio also comes equipped with a TV and Wi-Fi. Stores are about 2 miles (3 km) away, restaurants, theaters and microbreweries within 5 miles (8 km), beaches and Legoland 10 miles (16 km), Temecula wineries 30 miles (48 km). Please browse photos for a complete visual of our studio and neighborhood.

We live in a rural area and have a very friendly German Shepherd dog. If guests wish to go beyond the gated area onto our property, please ask us first so we can introduce our dog to you. Due to our rural setting, we have many coyotes in the area, which are sometimes loud during the night and at dawn when they are most active.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, I'm Aaron and Shannon is my better half. I’m originally from Ireland while Shan is from California. We met in Carlsbad many moons ago when I was traveling through the area, and have been inseparable since then. We are parents to a gorgeous daughter and both artists, Shan is a glass blower while I write and illustrate for a living. Travel is the other thing we also enjoy doing when we can afford it and have the time. Exploring other cultures is an enriching experience and an education that can’t be learned from books since it’s people that make a culture, not just geography.

Why the Owner Chose Vista, CA, USA:
Well, we chose this property because we love this area. Its close enough to the ocean but without the expense. Beggars can’t be choosers so for what we could afford we bought a place in need of a little tlc, we figured we’d rather live in a small house on a big lot than in a large house on a small lot. Vista enabled us to do this, the area is hilly and rural without being miles from nowhere. Everything we need is close enough to be within a few minutes drive away and yet far enough to where we can retreat to the peace and quiet of nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Weather is one of the biggest attractions to California. Vista being about 10 miles inland, makes it more affordable to similar accommodations in the beach areas. However, despite Vista’s close proximity to the coast, we actually get more sunshine than the coast because of the marine layer which often blankets the beach areas between the months of May and August, affectionately called May grey and June gloom. Vista is central to many of the attractions southern California has to offer.
