Magical Yome (mix of yurt & dome) surrounded by trees. Not just a place to stay, but a retreat for mind, body & spirit from all that is currently going on "outside". Relax by the pool or lie on the shaded hammock and let the chirping birds take you away. Perfect space to connect with your people. Hot shower and flush toilet in the plant filled outdoor bathroom. Strong WIFI. Shared space. Recently featured on Hidden San Diego. By reserving, we are assuming you've read entire ad and agree to rules

The space
***IMPORTANT***Please be aware that we do not allow anyone on the property who is not a registered guest. Since the pool area is shared with our family as well as anyone staying in the Poolside Lounge, and in the spirit of maintaining a somewhat intimate/private/safe pool area, we ask that you please not invite your own guests. The maximum number of people in the Yome is 3 at any given time. Thank you.***

***Who uses the pool?***
Anyone staying in the apartment (4 max), anyone staying in poolside loft (max of 4), our family of 3 and sometimes a friend or 2 (especially during summer months, during winter months, you may not see a lot of people in the area) including children at times and another tenant, his name is Chris and you could see him as well...he's very friendly and will be sure to introduce himself if you happen to see him. It's a very large pool and there are many places to sit, so it feels a little like a small boutique hotel/resort, where you may meet some new people. We rarely have more than 4 or 5 people at any given time in the pool area and if we do, we are always sure to let our guests know. There may be times when you are the only person using it as well :) Although the pool is much better than any apartment and even most hotels, if you are looking for total privacy, it's probably not a great fit. the area around the Yome is very private though, so you really don't have to interact with anyone if you don't want to.

*Hot tub use*
We are always trying to save energy/power where we can. To accommodate all guests, a reservation for hot tub use is required. Hot tub can be used for one hour and needs to be arranged with hosts. If a longer time is desired, there is an extra fee.

**Please no food or drinks in Yome. Water is fine, but anything else, the ants will come. You are basically staying in a fancy tent that is outside (glamping) There may be the errant bug or spider that makes its way into the yurt and aside from spraying, there is little we can do about that, though we do everything we can to avoid this.

We are located on the border of El Cajon and Lakeside in San Diego (about 20 miles east of Downtown) with easy access to the 8 freeway. We are just beginning to live our longtime dream of sharing our land and space with travelers, artists and friends. We have a 2.5 acre property and the Yome is down at the pool, separated from the main house. The outdoor bathroom will be shared when our family or friends are at the pool swimming or hanging out and need to use the toilet, but most likely during the evening hours, it will be all yours, we always try to give a heads up if there will be anyone using the bathroom in the evening. There is a door with a lock, so it is private when you need privacy. We recommend keeping your personal bathroom items in the Yome during your stay. Please note that we are very close to the 8 freeway and you can hear it in the distance at night. We offer a sound machine which helps to diffuse the noise. If you would like the hot tub on past 9pm, we can arrange that with additional fee. If you would like this added service, please let us know so we can make arrangements. Cost for hot tub heat is included in the rate you are paying (up to 1 hour of use) up until 9pm. Hot tub closes at 9pm (unless you pay the extra fee) and is shared with our family and anyone staying in the apartment. The hot tub comfortably fits 4 people max, so it's pretty small. Please let us know if you'd like to use and we will happily turn it on and off for you, as it's manual at this time. Please limit your time to one hour. Pool is not heated and costs $125/day to heat. Please let us know if you would like that added service. Thank you!

This is a pretty chill spot, a lot of family (at times) around environment, not a party pad in any way. The Yome does offer a lot of privacy, but the pool area is shared. Please don't book if you are looking for total seclusion and privacy without another soul around...this is not it. It can be cold in the winter months and warm during the summer...we try to make your stay as comfy as possible :) There is a toaster oven, coffee maker & a BBQ. The lighting is ambient around the pool area at night, so it's not great for doing a lot of technical things at night or cooking a full on meal that you would at home (recommend doing that while it's still light out). That being said, it is a wonderful place to find peace, quiet and comfort. During the summer, there's the pool outside and a fan inside and winter offers electric blanket and space heater and a fire pit at the pool.

The Yome fits 3 adults comfortably. One parking spot available. Also, please let us know exactly how many are staying, we do not allow guests to have their own guests due to liability reasons, and we like to keep the pool area pretty chill and intimate. Thank you!

Our gorgeous Yome has a comfy queen size real bed and a twin size futon as well as a fan & space heater. It is steps from the pool and very private. TheYome is situated on an elevated platform under a gorgeous canopy of Chinese Elm trees. The trees have lot's of bird families, so that means your new alarm clock is a bird :) There are motion solar lights around the bathroom and walkways. There are extra blankets if needed. There is an outdoor bathroom (shared when anyone is at pool, mostly during summer months ) steps away with a hot shower, sink with mirror and regular flush toilet. It is lit by solar lights, and there is an electric lamp in the bathroom as well. There is a gas BBQ to cook on (please bring utensils and items you would bring camping) and a full size fridge to put your drinks or food in.

We are in the process of making our land unique and magical, which means we are always working on one thing or another around the property…it's truly a work in progress at our place here. Our vision is to transform the landscape into a complete sanctuary retreat, and it’s coming along quite nicely. We are excited to share it with our guests and will be available during your whole stay if you need anything at all. We are just a text away.

Nearby activities include Lake Jennings, which offers fishing and hiking, as well as several gorgeous parks to visit. There are lot's of wineries in Ramona, about 45 minutes east in the mountains, as well as Julian to explore. Our glamp is great for a weekend destination or just for a rest on your way to another adventure. Although we love pets (we have a few dogs on the property), we cannot accept guests with pets at this time. Parking is in our driveway across from the pool area. Just text us when you get here and we'll make sure to show you around. Please make every effort to check in by 9pm. If that doesn't work, just let us know before you book and we can most likely accommodate you. Thank you

During your stay

We will meet you upon arrival and help you get settled then will be available as needed. Pool is normally shared with our family/friends and anyone staying in our yurt and anyone staying in our newest addition, a converted barn. (all hidden in the back across from pool area). Right now with how things are, we are taking more precautions and limiting the number of people allowed in the area. The 3 rentals we have are fairly far apart and it's very easy to maintain distance, even when you are chilling at the pool.
