La Mesa Studio Rental Photos and Description

Casita, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL! Send inquiry for available dates within 4 weeks or less and receive an 'OPEN DATE SPECIAL' 10% off price.

This casita is lovely, newly remodeled, nicely furnished and conveniently located in a building by itself with complete privacy. We are giving the surroundings special care and love this spring!

People have told us they love it because it is cute, comfortable, convenient, oh so clean and QUIET (but yet only steps away from our La Mesa Village commercial area where there is great coffee, breakfast, happy hour, dinner - whatever your heart desires!) and easy access to all freeways, making getting anywhere in San Diego a breeze!

Oliver's Place 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 gardens are lush and water is managed with a drip system. There is a wonderful deck for sunset relaxation and a ZEN-like Garden with swing for reading or just relaxing.

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.

There is safe and lighted off street parking.

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.

About Kathryn Boe

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

Why Kathryn Boe chose La Mesa

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.

What makes this studio unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time at a VRBO and WE LOVED IT! We hope that everyplace is as wonderful as this. The view was wonderful. The accommodations were spectacular! We loved all the small touches that were added. And, the location was perfect. We really respect the privacy that the owners gave us. We were here for a wedding. We couldn't have done any better at any other location. We feel SO lucky to have found Oliver's Place. Thank you (10 folds) for having us!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Oliver's place for nearly two and a half weeks in July and August, and were beyond pleased with it!

We arrived after sunset, exhausted after over ten hours of flying over from Europe. The lights had been left on for us, with a little note on the dining table, and even breakfast in the fridge! It really felt cozy from the get-go.
During our stay, Oliver's place was our home in every sense of the word. We spent a lot of time there, made food, watched sunsets on the patio and even had a barbeque with our friends. The owners were also very friendly and always asking if we needed something.

This place is also perfect for people without a car (like us) since the La Mesa Boulevard trolley station is only a five minute walk away.

Cannot recommend enough! :)

perfect for 5 nights! For some reason this will not let me select a star. We give it a 5.

We absolutely loved staying at this quiet retreat. So many lovely amenities and very clean. Very good rates. A real getaway and so private. Easy to walk to town, have tea with a grandchild and even had daughter and family over for dinner and cookout. Would like to come back soon. Felt very safe and as a woman would come to rest even without my husband. Thank you Kathryn and Bill for having such a wonderful place to stay.

Lovely stay, at this relaxing studio with all the comforts of home. Owners are the best and downtown La Mesa is always a treat to visit. This place is centrally located with easy access to most anywhere in San Diego. I hope to return next year.

A Charmer

  • 5 of 5
Oliver's Place was so charming. We are a young couple who found it perfect for the two of us. We ran in the neighborhood in the mornings and then enjoyed coffee on the patio.
Close enough to the beach to go daily. Very clean and comfy and a nice little kitchen.
Walking distance to La Mesa's restaurants and shops.

This was a great place to stay. Yes, we had air conditioning, but never needed it even when San Diego was boasting a heat wave. With all the windows we always had a nice breeze. I appreciated the bottled water provided as I usually have to go get several gallons whenever I am somewhere. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Close walk to local downtown La Mesa where we enjoyed several meals at Swami's.

What A Great Time

  • 5 of 5
This cute little flat is perfectly located. The neighborhood is perfectly located with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The flat is cute and cozy. The bed is a little on the small side if you are not used to being right up against your bed mate.

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.
