About Debi Ireland
I love people, horses, And dogs. I am an oil painter, a credentialed teacher and a licensed real estate broker.
Debi Ireland purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Debi Ireland chose San Diego County
I have been living and riding horses in this rural corner of San Diego County for nearly 15 years and just love the beauty of this place and being so close to nature but only 40 miles from downtown San Diego. I am able to ride horses from our property through the Hellhole Canyon preserve and the BLM land that backs right into our property. The original owner took almost 10 years to construct the Pueblo and it is made almost entirely of poured concrete. This unique habitat had not been in use for many years and after purchasing the property in 2010, Debi decided to create a unique living space for others to enjoy as well as ourselves.
What makes this Cottage unique
Living in this area provides the opportunity for star-gazing, hiking, trail riding, exploring the back country and observing birds and other small wildlife. The Pueblo is close enough to San Diego to enjoy a day at the beach, the San Diego Zoo, Mission Bay, or any other of San Diego's wonderful attractions not to mention there are 4 casinos within 15 miles of The Pueblo. The Safari Park is but a 30 minute drive from our property! We are only 20 miles from the Palomar Mountain observatory!

Amazing little rustic hideaway!
My boyfriend and I spent a couple nights here with our dog Goose. It was exactly what we were hoping for...privacy, fresh air, beautiful scenery and tons of character.
It ended up raining most of our trip but we didn’t even care. We spent time inside watching movies, playing cards and enjoying the outdoor hot tub. The location of the house was also perfect. We were far enough away to have complete privacy but only a 15 minute drive to some really good local restaurants and close hiking too!
The owners were quick to respond with any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this unique rental to anyone looking for some peaceful relaxation for a few days. We hope to be back in the near future! Thank you :)
We had a really lovely stay. thank you so much for making it so cozy and welcoming. We had everything we needed! The only complaint we had was the hot tub seems very loud when it is heating up - we were a bit bummed about that! Apart from that it was a wonderful stay.
A gem in the rough
We had a great time at this little gem of a place. We stayed here a week while visiting family in vista. I arrived a bit wound up from regular stresses that life brings and left totally and completely relaxed. The reviews I read on this site were spot on. The highlight for us was our nightly ritual of conversation by the fire pit under the stars followed by relaxing in the jacuzzi. You’ll love it.
Rural, quiet, peaceful. A really great place to stay. Has all the amenities needed. A place we enjoy and have come back to many times.
If your looking for a desert oasis that is clean, artsy, romantic, quaint, rustic and a little not the norm, then the Pueblo is the place to stay. My wife and I stayed here as our last stop on our honeymoon, really quiet atmosphere to look up at the stars, or if you prefer have a fire in the firepit or relax in the jacuzzi. Close enough to San Diego for a day trip and far enough away to relax without all the noise of the city.
Disconnect and recharge your batteries
We have stayed here before several years back and still love everything about the Pueblo! Unplug and sit by the fire, gaze up at the stars, relax in the hot tub before bed, wake up with the birds and just do nothing but nap all day! The place is fully fenced in so little doggies can just sniff around and be safe from the "scary coyotes" or just watch the fish swim around the pond. We always leave with a renewed sense of peace and we won't wait so long to come back! Debi is so artistic and you will find yourself seeing new art hidden in plain sight everywhere...be sure to admire her beautiful horses before you go-magical place!! Thanks!!
