This is the place to come for complete rest, privacy and quiet from modern day distractions. The Pueblo combines rustic charm with up-to-date luxuries. There are no neighbors to disturb your rest, no phones, no computers, no cable TV although there is a large flat screen TV with a small DVD collection and a stereo with music CDs. We offer an hour long non riding horse encounter where guests learn to groom horses and exercise them at liberty in an open arena. We also offer guided nature hikes and introduction to animal tracking.
two-burner stove top, microwave, coffee pot, tea kettle, small fridge, all pots and pans and dishes and spices, propane BBQ outside with side burner.
Horses are always welcome and the trails to the nearby preserve are just 1/4 mile down the dirt road off the property.
Sunbathe on your completely private deck. We have a massage therapist in the area that makes house calls. Sit quietly by the goldfish pond and meditate. Gaze at the stars, listen to the coyotes howl and fire up the grill. There is a private jacuzzi next to the outdoor fire pit.
Horse accommodations are 12' x 20' covered stallion pens, 200' x 70' arena, wash area, cross ties and trails. Bermuda and alfalfa hay provided for an extra $20.00 per horse per night.

Debi Ireland purchased this cottage in 2010
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.
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!
Great quiet spot close to good hiking. Only bummer was that the Jacuzzi was broken so we could not soak our aching muscles, and the coffee pot is small for caffeine addicts like us. Comfy bed, nice fire pit. All the best parts of camping plus a hot shower.
Took the wife here for 3 nights - the plan was to relax from our crazy work & social life, which of late has been very hectic. It was exactly what we had hoped for. The pueblo is tucked away atop the mountains, secluded in itself. We brought our dog as well, for his first vacation outside of our home - he loved it. Stars were plentiful each night as we sat at the fire-pit. Bed was very comfy. The decor was welcoming with the owners own art (mostly horses and dogs), which was appropriate considering there are horses all around the area, including just outside the pueblo (was fun to pet them, and our dog played with them as well). The kitchen (a separate little building on the property) had everything I needed, though if you plan to cook (as I do) use the BBQ for your stovetop - the electric 2 burner provided does not get much heat (enough to cook eggs but that's about it). I cooked full meals using the homes pots and pans on the BBQ and it was great. We also visited Harrah's Rincon down the way 20 minutes for a nice dinner. Overall, if you're looking for a get away that is not that far away (for us anyway) - that is serene and comfortable, as well as romantic and artsy - this place is awesome !! We plan to return.
We love this tranquil, relaxing getaway. We had stayed at a smaller place on the same property and loved that as well. Debi is FABULOUS. Really worked with our constraints and helped to make it a perfect place to relax and get a lot of writing done. It is quirky but delightful place. What a stunning collection of DVDs. We watched a few we had wanted to see in the past, and finding them here was a real treat. We fed the horses carrots every day and loved meeting the dogs, Ginger and Lana. The fish pond was a treat as well.
We relaxed in the spa every night and listened to the peace and quiet.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING.
My wife Madeliene and our dog Jax had a great timer his weekend. It was the first time in a long time that I can remember not having a worry or any stress. A great place to come and be away from it all.
My hubby and I had an amazing time at the Publio! we loved that the kitchen and living space was separate, loved the hot tub and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area... We even had some of the 'locals' (horses that is) come and say Hi! Wish I could give more than 5 stars because this place was definitely worth it!
Just what we needed! A little gem tucked away in the canyons that offered true relaxation.
Had all the amenities and nice touches one could ask for.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
