CHARMING & ROOMY LA MESA STUDIO @ GREAT PRICE (OPEN TO HOME EXCHANGE)

La Mesa Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This is a lovely, newly remodeled, nicely furnished and conveniently located studio in a building by itself with complete privacy. We call it Oliver's Place.

The studio was completely remodeled in 2010, with upgrades added each year since. It seems more spacious than the average studio because of the vaulted, open beam ceiling. Many say the pictures do not do the space justice. Unexpected are the lovely open, unobstructed views out the spacious windows in 3 directions - to the hills of Mexico, Mission Valley and then to the highest peak in San Diego - Cowles Mountain. A new deck was added in June 2011 as well as a laundry room. Both add to the enjoyment and convenience of guests. 2012 brought more creature comforts: a new Ortho mattress, GE AC that works wonderfully in the hottest of weather, and finally, a new 42' flat screen TV.

We are conscientious about protecting the environment.

We use clean solar electric power and provide opportunity to recycle. Our garden is lush and water is managed with a drip system.

There is ample and convenient off street parking.

Hummingbirds and wrens and mocking birds visit the yard. There are hawks in the open sky and you can hear the clatter of large flocks of green parrots that visit the Eucalyptus and Jacaranda trees year round.

Just steps from the front door of this studio is the heart of the Village of La Mesa, an historic location known as the 'Jewel of The Hills' (click on the link below for La Mesa history and information). There are excellent restaurants, coffee shops, antique and specialty shops. Evenings are often filled with the sound of music from the local venues. The Friday Farmers Market bustles with activity year round. There is sunshine (the coast can be foggy), sunsets, hilly vistas and ocean breezes.

But you may be coming to San Diego for the famous attractions - the beaches, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, San Diego Bay and events at Qualcomm Stadium. All those places are 10 plus or minus miles away from La Mesa (check out the map) and the freeways that take you there are just a half mile away from the studio. The trolley is handy and provides easy access to downtown San Diego (see link for the Trolley service) and everything between! Visiting San Diego State University? The trolley is the best way to get there because it drops you right on campus!

Whether you are here to visit family or friends who live here or just to vacation on your own we hope you will make our vacation rental a part of your plans.

Long time La Mesa residents! Love to travel and love to use VRBO when we do travel. We are semi-retired - Geologist and Nurse Practitioner/Medical Anthroplogist.

Kathryn Boe purchased this studio in 1996

La Mesa is (almost) always sunny! We find we like that quality as opposed to the fog that can be ever present right on the coast. So, living inland is our choice.

A personal space, made more so with owner's travel momentos, rotating art from the main house, pottery, antiques handed down in the family.

Oliver's Place was perfect for us. The pictures are accurate, but by no means do it justice,it was a very comfortable little home away from home. The hummingbirds are there constantly, and the smell from the citrus trees in the garden was so lovely. We hope to be able to stay there again. Thank You

This studio was a great find! La Mesa is a nice, quiet little community. The studio is located near several shops, restaurants and the trolley. It was easy to get around to other parts of San Diego from this area. The studio was cozy and quiet. My husband and I would rent it again next time we're in San Diego.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Love having new people discover the perks of La Mesa Village, the ease of the trolley and/or freeway access to anywhere. I think if you want a quiet night's sleep and waking to the cool morning, this would be a good choice. Like this couple, if you are Comic-Con aficionados, you might consider booking soon for next year's event!

My kids attended a debate tournament in La Mesa. This property was just perfect for us. It was clean and had everything we needed. We loved sitting on the deck in the evenings. The owners were quick to answer all of my questions. Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

We had a great time ! The studio met all of our needs, was very clean and the deck was an added bonus. Great location - we walked to the Farmers Market on Friday ( every Friday 2 - 6 ) and collected an assortment of fresh veges, fruit, bread and other items which were delicious. Also great little grocery store nearby - Sprouts - and an abundance of great restaurants in walking distance. Would defiantly stay here again.

Our landscape is hilly with twinkling night lights and great sun set views. You can see the lights of Tijuana to the south, some 30 miles away. Inland locations like La Mesa offer more sunshine during the cool months than do the coastal communities.
