Why this Property?
The Studio is in our backyard and is private and quite. This is an old house and we fell in love with it. Our neighborhood was voted twice by the San Diego Reader as the nicest neighborhood to live in San Diego and our home was featured on the front cover in 2000. North Park is a unique area and has an eclectic array of restaurants, microbreweries, art and culture. The main streets are filled with boutiques and unique stores and galleries. North Park is minutes away from downtown and all that is central and yet far enough to enjoy the quiet of the neighborhood and the friendliness of the neighbors.
Our backyard is a garden filled with fruits and vegetables. Our garden is an Organic edible garden, following the philosophy of 'food not lawns, and the slow food movement. It has always been Ron's dream, and he just knows how to wield his green thumb. We use only organic materials and the whole house and garden utilizes a whole house water filtration system. No need to buy bottled water. Feel free to pick from the garden and ask questions.
This studio is in walking distance from Balboa Park, Morley Field Frisbee Golf, Morley Field Sports Complex, tons of restaurants, shops, wine bars, and much, much more. The San Diego Zoo is only 1 mile away, walk or bike with ease. Enjoy Balboa Park from this exclusive San Diego neighborhood, which also features a working artist colony, Japanese Garden, 15 Museums, IMAX theater, free concerts when offered and performances, a train exhibit for kids and much more! This is the perfect spot for the urbanite looking to experience the San Diego culture in a unique, upscale, neighborhood village. Down Town's Gas-lamp district & Petco Park are a quick 5 min away.
You are also only a short drive to Coronado for a stroll at the famous Dell Hotel or any of the many San Diego area beaches! Approximately 10 min to the San Diego Airport, 15 min to Sea World, Old Town, or Mission Bay. 20 min to La Jolla, 25 min to Del Mar Race Track. 40 min to Lego land, 40 min. San Diego Wild Animal Park, Anza Borrego desert/mountain open areas and several casinos. Bus number 2 stops right around the corner.
The our vegetable garden. I say if it is there and you like it, pick it and eat it. This is an organic garden there are no worry about pesticides.
Interaction with Guests
We have very busy lives and therefore there is little interaction with our guests. Often times a "Hello"and that is it for the rest of the stay. I know, this is really sad.
I am on a cul-de-sac and have no traffic. There a so many new Restaurants in this neighborhood.
I would suggest your car, but the bus stop is only 3 minutes walk away from the studio.
There is a "NO SMOKING" rule on the property. When you leave, please pickup after yourself. Like bring out the trash, and put dirty towels on one pile please.
If there is something missing and we agree it should be there I will get it. Just ask or let me know.
We have a wonderful organic vegetable garden. We will share the crop with you.
Both Rhonda and Ron were the perfect hosts. Rhonda greeted us with a warm welcome and had communicated everything we needed to know. We enjoyed our private, quiet place with a super comfortable bed and futon. The kitchen had extra amenities that we appreciated for our breakfasts there. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
My husband and I just spent a perfect relaxing week at Rhonda and Rons and we didn't want to leave. The house feels like home straight away and has everything you will need for a very comfortable stay. The air con is AMAZING! Balboa park is nice and close, as are the lovely bars/restaurants of north park. Rhonda is a very warm, friendly host and we hope to visit again some day
Rhonda and Ron were very nice and friendly, and the space was conveniently located for our trip to Comic-Con.
Our stay was terrific! It was just the right neighborhood for our family's adventures to the zoo and Balboa Park. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Rhonda and Ron were gracious hosts and very kind. Thanks for a lovely stay!!
This is a great place to stay, especially since the bedroom is mostly closed off from the main living area. My toddler goes to bed before we do and this allowed us to make more noise than we can get away with in a single room. Everything you need for the kitchen is there. The location is great for the zoo (and everything else, really). We never had a problem finding parking on the street out front. This was our first airbnb stay and we'll definitely do it again if they're all as good as this one!
This cozy but roomy garden cottage was everything we needed and wanted for a week! It was quiet, comfortable, and peaceful. We cooked our own meals in the well-stocked kitchen and partook of fresh lemons, squash, kale, and avocados from the garden. We walked to great Italian food, beer, coffee shop, and ice cream. We ran and biked into Balboa Park. Ron was warm and welcoming and communication was great! I have nothing negative to say -- only that I wish we could always live there :)
Thank you Ron and Rhonda!
Rhonda ist eine ganz liebe, und sie kann sogar deutsch :-) die 1 1/2 Zimmerwohnung befindet sich im Haus von Rhonda, auf der hinteren Seite, richtung Garten. Die Gegend ist echt nett. Es gibt einen netten Gemüsegarten. Rhonda war echt hilfsbereit, sie hat uns bei der Buchung einer Whalewtchingtour per Telefon geholfen. Die Wohnung ist nett eingerichtet, mit einerm Bett das abgetrennt vom Wohnzimmer steht (kein extra Raum) sowie einer Schlafocuch. Die Küche ist ausreichend ausgestattet. Das Bad ist sauber. Die Lage ist auch gut. Mit dem Auto 5 Minuten zum Zoo von San Diego. Ich würde wieder hin gehen.
We live in San Diego since 1999 and love every day here. The waether is most of the time just perfect. He loves our garden and I love the harvest. Perfect match. Everything seems to grow here, this is fantastic. Our neighborhood has been improving so much in the last 5 years. New restaurants, art studio and many more intriguing stores. I used to go to the beach alot, not so much any more, but it is good to know that the ocean is right around the corner. Same is true with the Zoo and Seaworld.
