We are in our mid-30s, we love cooking/eating, going to the beach, running, biking, hiking, yoga, reading. we work long hours during the week and have a quiet and relaxed lifestyle on the weekends. Sean works in renewable energy and rosemary is an architect.

Rosemary Cate purchased this studio in 2010

Sean and I are eco-conscious. We installed 2 solar panel systems (one on the front house and one on the back house). There is a fast charging station for your electric car (or you may arrange to rent our electric car during your stay). We harvest rainwater and use laundry grey water for the landscape in the courtyard. The Eco Studio is the perfect combination of beautiful, comfortable yet also sustainable living.

South Park is such a unique neighborhood. You will not find any cookie-cutter houses here, unless you consider the 100-year-old craftsman houses which are everywhere you look. It's a beautiful, vibrant, and friendly neighborhood. No big box chain stores/restaurants/shops. Everything has a mom & pop feel to it. But the chain stores are a short drive when you need them.

Lovely respite

The setting is lovely, in the extremely walkable South Park residential neighborhood. Nearby restaurants and shops were excellent, and parking was a breeze. The studio, which opens onto a private courtyard with beautiful landscaping and seating, had everything we needed, including a French Press coffeemaker (though if we had preferred, there also was an automatic drip pot.) All essentials were handled just fine. Owners were very accommodating. The place is a short drive from Balboa Park, where a visitor could spend days. But it was easy to get anywhere we wanted. Highly recommended; the place is a real gem.

Not Eco Friendly

  • Submitted: Dec 22, 2013

Beware if you are looking for chemical free! Upon arrival I was bombarded by plug in air fresheners. Bed sheets and cover also washed in heavy detergents. Thankful for leather couch to sleep on since couldn't breathe near bed. On a plus, it is a very wonderful neighborhood and kitchen also mostly equipped. Outside courtyard is also very chemical smelling, especially in the evenings. So if you are looking for eco friendly, this is not the place. If you are not sensitive to chemicals, this place is ideal for your stay. Great neighborhood with fun people and places. Close to everything by car.

Relaxing Getaway

The studio, set in a low-key neighborhood away from the frantic tourist spots, is a great place to relax for a few days. Not too far from some amazing restaurants and the San Diego Zoo, it's a great base of operations for a San Diego vacation and provides the amenities of home if you want a night in. I'd definitely stay here again.

Loved my stay!

I spent over a week at this great place in South Park in San Diego and can recommend it. Convenient and fully equipped kitchen, cute little garden with a fab hamac and my favourite thing was the bed: the biggest bed I've ever slept in. Loved the neighbourhood and the feel of the place. It's very clean, modern and the communication with the hosts was easy. 5 stars!

Great property, convenient to downtown and all the sights but yet tucked away in south park for quiet evenings with nice areas to take a stroll. Highly recommend and would certainly book again!
