Why Katriana Vader chose Vista
When I first saw this property I knew I had to buy it. It reminded me of being in Brazil, green and tropical.
What makes this Studio unique
This property is very peaceful and secure like being in the close to everything. There are birds, the occasional squirrel and peacocks that will show up to drink at the pool.

Great place to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay in this studio! Very quiet! The owners had cookies and wine waiting for us when we arrived! Wish we had time to relax by the pool but we will definitely stay here again.
This is a wonderful little place. It had everything that was needed for a pleasant stay. The owner went above and beyond, leaving baked goods, a bottle of wine, and even fresh flowers. Also we forgot something and she went out of her way to make sure we got it back. Would definitely stay again.
Thanks Beverly! It was a pleasure having you two stay with us and we hope to see you back again soon. Cheers, Katriana
Did not stay in the rental property. It did not m
Did not stay in the rental property. It did not match the pictures or description in the listing.
The house is very old and very run down.
The toilet is separate from the bath and is in a closet like room facing the counter on a raised floor so you have to twist to use the toilet if you are my brother who was staying too.
Rotting around the bottom of the sink.
Scene out of window was bottom of a dirty deck.
Basically was an old basement converted into a studio apartment with low ceilings.
When I looked at the listing it looked very inviting and where I would like to spend time but It was run down I would not feel comfortable or safe.
When this guest called me to tell me she was not going to stay at the property I immediately went over to meet her to see what her concerns were. She cited that the pool had a few leaves in it, that there were some leaves on the ground in the rain forest and that the outside furniture was not up to her standards. At the time she made no mention nor complaint of the interior of the studio.
The guest is correct in stating that the house is old. I am very proud of the fact that this house is an original Vista adobe, built in 1945. I have purposely not modernized the studio and the photos reflect that, but it is neither neglected nor run down. I list my property at an extremely attractive rate which is an excellent value for the area. As a further step, I looked over the photos on my listing and compared them to the condition of the studio and found them to be a good representation.
I have consistently had excellent reviews in the two years I have had the studio in the vacation rental market, but as evidenced, you can't please everyone.
I am of the belief that the guest changed her mind and decided to stay with nearby relatives, which had little to do with the condition of my property.
My husband and I had a little honeymoon over this weekend and it was very nice! Felt like a home away from home.
Laura - glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again soon!
Private & Cozy setting for a vacation
The studio was conveniently not far from the freeway or the train depot and yet its very quiet and private. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and homemade cookies! The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen has most anything you need, though the pans could use some updating. The large Roman tub/shower was great and it was nice to have some soaps and shampoo there to use if needed. The pool was absolutely wonderful; water very warm and soothing. Having a washer and dryer was a great convenience as well. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Vista.
Thanks for the glowing review! It was wonderful to host the both of you. Also, thanks for the heads up about the pans! I will look into what we have in the Studio and see how we can improve the inventory.
We hope to see you again soon!
