About the property

A colorful, tropical-themed bungalow just steps from the pool, with an outdoor bamboo-surrounded shower, queen Murphy bed, small functional kitchen and a private outdoor patio. The bungalow is approximately 280 sq feet, with vaulted ceiling and two ceiling fans. Out the back door is a private tiled shower surrounded by bamboo and a private patio perfect for listening to the birds and having coffee. The toilet and sink is detached and reached by way of a 20 foot pathway. There is free Wi-Fi, cable TV, ample closets and storage.

The Pool House is only suitable for 2 people for short-term reservations.

This bungalow is lovely and eclectic. I lived in it very happily for 8 years and has all the necessities. It was designed to accommodate one person however I will allow two people for a SHORT TERM on a case-by-case basis.

Free WiFi and Premium Satellite TV.

About Katriana Vader

I'm a traveler and have be at it since I was 17.....a few years ago. During my travels I was fortunate to meet a lot of wonderful people who helped me out. I'd like to pay that forward. I love meeting people and making sure that they enjoy the place I now call home.

I speak 6 if I don't speak yours I'm also pretty proficient at sign language and Charades.

Katriana Vader purchased this bungalow in 1997

Why Katriana Vader chose Vista

The minute I stepped on this property I knew I had to buy it. With its 37 palm trees and tropical foliage it reminded me of Brazil and the tropics. Being on this property gives you such a peaceful feeling, in spite of being just minutes from downtown Vista and the highways.

Great place to stay to explore Southern California without the hustle of the city!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 months while doing an internship. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed my time at the pool In the summer months. The place was just big enough for my kitty and I. Katriana is a wonderful host and extremely attentive/receptive. I would recommend this place!

Lovely experience staying in the Pool House!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Pool House Bungalow has been a very lovely experience. The Studio is actually larger in size than it appears in the photos, and the private patio area is a bonus, where I have spent much time relaxing outside underneath the palm trees. The studio is very clean and decorated sweetly. I have been staying here for a month & 1/2, with my dog as I relocate to San Diego and it has been an amazing landing pad for us! Quiet, private, and there is a huge back yard off the patio that is great for the doggie too. Katriana and Linda are superb hosts. Katriana is very quick to get back to me if I need anything at all. The neighbors are also very friendly, not to mention the gorgeous peacocks that live next door. Unless you are traveling during rush hour, I have made it to San Diego in 40 minutes, and Oceanside in 15. Its a great location, and this street is also good for walking the dog. Everything you need is close by. The property is really beautiful, the pool is clean, and I enjoy the out door shower too. The bathroom is really just outside the door and doesn't bother me to walk to it at all. I have been thoroughly enjoying our stay here, it has been a very sweet experience. Thank you Katriana & LInda!! I highly recommend this studio for someone who wants a private, quiet, special space in North County of San Diego.
