Keypad lock entry so your arrival time is flexible, you can let yourselves in whenever you pull into town.

Check-in after 4pm and Check-out before 12 noon. If you need an early check-in or late check-out, inquire at time of booking (additional fee required).

If the guest departs more than 30 minutes after the checkout time they will be charged a $50 late checkout fee. We need the full cleaning window to get the place sparkling clean for the next guest and when a departing guest leaves late it can impact the arriving guest, and that's not fair to them or to us.

About Rosemary

We are in our late-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 is the homeowner. Rosemary is an interior designer and the property manager.

Rosemary purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rosemary chose San Diego

Sean and I are eco-conscious. We installed 3 solar panel systems (one on the front house and one on the back house and one on the house in University Heights). There is a fast charging station with reserved parking for your electric car. 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

We might not stay in a hotel again after this!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had 3 adults, 1 teenager and a toddler. We were all extremely happy with the accomodations. We loves the courtyard. There was enough room. The place had all the essentials and a few extras that were very much appreciated. The hostess was one text away and replied immediately. I highly recommend this place!

Nice stay in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our small puppy for two days. The studio is clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you need. We especially enjoyed the courtyard for our puppy and the quiet neighborhood. We can highly recommend this property.

Great place in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

My dogs and I stayed at the Eco Studio for 4 days and I loved it! It is very cute, and extremely clean. The courtyard was great for the dogs and during warmer months it would be a great place to relax outside. The owners have provided nice towels, wonderful sheets on the very comfortable bed, a nice TV & couch and a roomy closet that you can hang up your clothes and store your luggage in. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes & utensils, and you have a fridge and stove if you choose to eat your meals in. The location is great - it was a $9. Uber ride to Gaslamp District and it was about a 15 min. drive to Coronado. The neighborhood is beautiful and my dogs and I enjoyed our walks very much. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others. Oh, and the price is great - so much more value and enjoyment than you would get in a hotel.

This looks like the place for us

  • 4 of 5

The Eco Studio was the perfect location for us - We didn't have to take a highway to most of the spots we wanted to visit which was a big plus!!! The furnishing were a bit dated but everything was neat and clean - The bed and pillows were incredibly comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet. The studio is a good fit for two. We look forward to future visits.

This is our spot for future visits.

  • 5 of 5

My partner, daughter and I came to visit from Arizona. We wanted to save money by eating in which was the main reason we searched for a condo to stay at. It saved us money and more. The condo is located in the perfect area! It's just minutes from downtown and nestled in an area full of culture. The condo had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay and also allowed us to feel like we were part of the wonderful city. Highly recommend this condo as it is clean, well stocked, and comfy! We will be staying here for our future visits. So don't worry if your searching for a place. This is it!!

Retirement Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rosemary and Sean are manager and owner of the year. They went out of their way to make our stay a wonderful vacation. The Eco Studio was comfortable, supplied well, laundry facilities on premises and had a nice courtyard for us and our dogs. The neighborhood is friendly and enjoyable for walks. We especially liked visiting the local restaurants and shops. The freeways and public transpertation are easily accessed. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return next year.
