About Julia

Robert and I both grew up back East but have been in S. California since the early 1970's. I retired after 30 years of teaching and have a love of languages, reading, yoga and hiking. We both enjoy travel, meeting people, wine, cooking, entertaining, and riding bikes.

Julia purchased this studio in 2010

Why Julia chose Midway

We fell in love with the beauty of this unique property the moment we set eyes on it. When you drive up the extensive driveway you are greeted by a majestically massive 150 year old Australian Morton Fig Tree. The original portion of this property was built in the 1930's as a typical S. California working ranch. We both love history and historical sites and are very proud of the fact that the grandson of President Ulysses S. Grant, Chapman Grant, lived at and owned this site in the 1960's! We are thrilled to have a piece of American history while enjoying the architectural beauty of a Mediterranean Villa.

What makes this studio unique

Privacy, accessibility, beautiful landscaping,

Beatiful !!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just everything you expect and more, I wish we could have more time to enjoy all the amenities but we had so many things to do already scheduled and we expend very little time in the property.

But the house is amazing, beautiful and has everything that is needed to be as comfortable as you can be. the swimming pool is gorgeous, very clean and the inside of the guest house/villa is equipped with all the essentials needed for a comfortable stay. the Villa is only a few minutes from stores and restaurants and only like 25 mins from San Diego.

We definitely stay again in the future, recommended a 100%

What a great place to enjoy our 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My wife Nathia and I could not have enjoyed our stay our this location any more! Being far enough from the city that at night we could actually hear coyotes. Our room consisted of a living area, sleeping area and a 3 room bathroom. Room 1 was a sink and large shower, room 2 was a sink and claw foot tub. Then the toilet in a room by itself. In addition a very large walk in closet. Will strongly consider returning.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I love this property. I am so glad we stayed here, instead of right on the beach. We saw so much more than we had planned, and took a beautiful back road to the beach which was only an hour away! Thank you!

The Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property combines so many advantages. It is located where city meets country. It is both elegant and friendly. The sparkling pool area invites relaxation while nearby theaters and trails encourage adventure. The hosts make your visit seamless and carefree.

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed four nights in this wonderful retreat. Julia is a great hostess and the accommodations have everything you could want. The bathroom suite was unbelievable as were the pool and spa,

We have stayed in many VRBO’s in both the US and abroad. This is one of the best - clean, beautiful, well appointed and quiet retreat!
