About the property

Private bungalow with amazing amenities and 2 extra bedroomsin Mission Hills

A peaceful and upscale beautiful Balinese style bungalow (detached from the main home) has amazing amenities and is accessed through the private side gate. The Room in the Bungalow includes a queen bed and a comfortable sofa where your child can sleep restfully. The kitchenette has refrigerator with freezer, microwave, coffeemaker, plasma TV, Wifi, and large spa like bathroom. The standard rate give access to the private bungalow only and the back yard.

Please note that I live in the main house, and that this property is not suitable to have parties as I want to be respectful to my wonderful neighbors. If you wish to invite extra people for a gathering, kindly let me know prior that we can discuss it. The only rule is to keep the noise down after 10PM please.

There are also 2 extra bedrooms suite, available at extra fees per person ($35 per person per night), located across the Bungalow, just a few step away and attached to the main home, but separated by a heavy door that stay closed. The entrance to the 2 bedroom suite is private through a Bathroom off the private backyard. The 2 bedrooms are connected. You will need to go through one room to get to the other room and to get to the Bathroom (so one of the room does not have total privacy). But they have doors and a corridor separating them. It is like your own suite!

The maximum occupancy is 6 persons. Please make sure to write down the correct amount of people when booking the rooms that it reflect the correct quote.

Toddlers and children up to 5 years old are welcome for Free!

The back yard is exclusive to your use!

During your vacation the amenities include the use of back yard fire pit, jacuzzi and BBQ grill, and a charming outside balinese bed under a canopy which is surrounded by palm trees and beautiful greenery. I also have at your disposal tennis rackets (there is a community (free) tennis court just down the street), a golf set, a boogie board and, a surf board. Also, feel free to use all that is in the storage room attached to the Bungalow…Snorkling equipment, beach chairs and umbrella… Also, there is 2 bike for you to use if you like...

You will find that my Balinese Bungalow and San Diego promise a truly remarkable family vacation or romantic getaway experience for you!

If you need to drop off your luggage before 5pm, please contact me to arrange this!

Mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

I have to say cathrine was a doll. She was a very sweet person. And the property was a cozy place. We had champagne and glasses at our arrival. She gave us great advise on sites to go visit. Although the guest house was upgraded and the linens were clean, I have to say there were spiders in corners and all over the patio. My mom was sweeping them from the walls over our beds. Coming from Arizona we know a thing or two about heat, so it was really surprising to find that the AC and power were shut off during the second night in the two extra bedrooms we rented. Which left my party trying to use their phone lights to get to the restroom. They were hot in the rooms and for some reason we were unable to fully open the windows to get the cool air flowing. Although it says privet oasis I was surprised to find a handful of the owners guests sitting out on the patio mingling, which is fine it's Catherine property but, it can't be called privet if there will be people you don't know walking around ya know. Overall the property served its perpuse, we had a place to stay and it was very close to the beach and downtown shops. I'm appreciative of course, and we had fun.

Nice quiet bungalow with nice courtyard.

  • 4 of 5

Catherine is a very nice host. Her place is small but functional. The highlight of the property is the courtyard with a fireplace and hot tub. The only negative is after 10 pm you have to be extremely quiet. Conversation has to be just above a whisper. And be aware that there is no kitchen or food prep area.But there is a grill, refrigerator and hot plate. So if you are looking for a quiet retreat type stay this is the place.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft vor allem der Außenbereich

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist schön eingerichtet und war sehr sauber. Für 6 Erwachsene sind die Räume recht klein, dafür ist der Whirpool groß genug und der Hof sehr einladent.
