About Pete Fuentes

One recent guest called us charming hosts! We love serving, and hosting travelers, and visitors to our area. When you love San Diego as much as we do it's easy. Come and enjoy a visit to America's Finest City, San Diego, California.

Pete Fuentes purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Pete Fuentes chose Point Loma

This is a dream come true, We always wanted a place on the California Coast in a Classic California Home. I was inspired to purchase this home because of the unique architecture which reminds me of a Frank Lloyd Wright home of the 60's.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the Mid- Century style architecture, and styling of this special home. It has a fresh-open fee with ceiling to floor windows. It is a true pool house because it lets the outside in and vice versa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We were looking for a place that was central to San Diego, and it's many attractions. We found it! Our stay was made easy in your guest house. Not only did we enjoy the sights but had a peaceful place to call home for a month. Will return, count on it.

Poolside Guest House San Diego-Ocean Beach

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family (4 persons) stayed here for one week. The house was fantastic and the manager Pete and his wife Solweig was very helpful and welcoming. The house was just as in the pictures, very well cleaned, the kitchen was well supplied, the beds were comfortable, clean PRIVATE pool with sunbeds, watertoys for children, grill and a great free WiFi. We missed nothing! We will definitely come back to San Diego and the Pool Side Guesthouse. We can absolutely recommend this vaccation stay!

Wonderful as extended stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Pete’s for several months while working in the area and it was well set up as an apartment for an extended stay. It is very conveniently located for close access to freeways and downtown San Diego. It was a delightful place to return to after work and a place to call home on the weekends. Pete and Solveig were so helpful in so many ways, providing answers to questions, additional information and connections about the area- just ask and they can help. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with cooking supplies for just about any type of cooking that you want to do (no oven). The hosts have clearly given a lot of consideration for what it takes for a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay, for business or for vacation.

Comfortable, Clean and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

The Guest House was a very comfortable place to unwind after a day of viewing the beauty of San Diego. We really enjoyed the location because it gave us the opportunity to explore the local community, beaches, the lovely coastal vistas and it was simple to find the harbors, museums, downtown, parks and grocery stores. We enjoyed walking to the beach and seeing the pier,neighborhoods, restaurants and shops.The accommodations were excellent and we loved the sunrise from the Poolside Guest House. The owners definitely take pride in their rental. I would highly recommend this rental and we hope to return again. Thanks Pete and Solveig!

Cannot Say Enough Good Things

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place, in a fantastic location. The space is large and pleasant, with all the amenities listed. It honestly looks better than in the pictures. The house is located toward the top of a hill in Point Loma - views of the city or ocean, restaurants or a Sunset Cliffs stroll, are all only a 15 minute walk away. Pete and Solveig are very kind and generous hosts, who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We have permanently relocated to San Diego, and they were a big part of making it a smooth transition for us. Highly recommend, especially for a long term stay!

Perfect pool side vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this private pool side retreat in Point Loma with private entrance and bright and cheerful decor.Pete is a gracious host who allows for privacy and is thoughtful in making sure you have everything you need for a great stay. We appreciated having use of beach chairs, cooler and beach umbrella. The pool is meticulously maintained. The location is centrally located providing easy access to all major points. The small kitchen is well stocked and we appreciated being able to use the outdoor grill.

First trip to San Diego and can't wait to return again and stay at the pool side Guest house.

I had the great fortune to spend two months here this summer and it was fantastic. I have vacationed here at least five times. Pete and Solveig are fantastic hosts and bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. Pete even picked me up and dropped me off at the airport! The place is super clean, safe and loaded with more amenities than I needed. The pool is perfectly maintained. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental and I hope to return again many times. The place is located near, or with easy access to, the many places you'll want to visit while in San Diego. It's like my home away from home!
