Travelers & International Friends ...
Welcome into a unique space ... The Ultimate Coastal-Cottage-Like BnB!
Step into Nature itself ... and let candles, rocks, sand, wood, water and natural elements in the surroundings elevate your soul into a world of earthy creation. Tropical, bohemian, and downright cozy ... the decor is a bonus, inviting your mind to wander ... as you discover little treasures and keepsakes from my adventures around world.
Long-term guests ...
Are you excited about coming to San Diego, California, in the pursuit of your dreams? Are you going to UCSD, SDSU or any other university? Looking for easy approval and a safe place to call home? Are you between 20-35 yrs old? Polite, clean, with high EQ and good values?
Let me guess, your ideal place is near to the beach but relatively close to the campus ... and you don't know where to find a great place to stay?
Would you like to live by the beach in a place that is perfectly peaceful, amicable, and joyous?
-Hi! I'm a young MBA student and professional female, who is seeking to share my "Zen Dream -home by the beach", with a friendly guest. I moved to San Diego about 15 yrs ago and I've been enjoying meeting people from all over the world -I've traveled to Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa (some places more than a few times). Besides, I've lived with roommates from all over the world: Swiss, Norwegian, Swedish, German, Danish, Ukrainian, Greek, French, Italian, Dutch, Japanese, Indian, Saudi-Arabian, Colombian, Brazilian; and the list keeps growing ...
I am very peaceful ... I am studying for my MBA ... I love sharing the house with well-traveled individuals sharing similar interests ... I love culture (I have a Bachelors in Tourism) ... I love being healthy and sharing good values ... on my free time, I help several organizations with fundraising and community activities.
This is the ideal home to chill out, perfect for students, chill cool people, and young and adventurous travelers. Students ... study while enjoying the rewards from living by the beach, in a very calm and convenient neighborhood such as North Pacific Beach -walking distance from coffee shops, the beach, restaurants, etc. ...
You are this close to be:
LIVING BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH, around friendly and nice people; studying in a very quiet and lovely home; walking and/or biking to the beach to exercise; going out for coffee or food in one of the several nearby coffee shops and restaurants anytime you need a break or sunshine!
BEST SUNSET VIEW of PB: while driving towards the "Zen Dream -home by the beach", you can see the Ocean and the S.D. Bay all together! Have you seen the "Green Flash"? Beautiful view from the Cliff at the end of the street! (Kite-surfing spot)
BEST NIGH LIFE of San Diego: just a few blocks from the main street, you can save lots of money on taxis.
Lifestyle is really important for most of us ... and a friendly environment can certainly make a difference
If you like most of things you've seen here ... and are open to tell me more about yourself ... This might be your chance to experience this like-SPA charming DREAM HOME!

Student/Professional ~I carry both a double degree in Civil Engineering & Architecture and a BA in Tourism. And I'm now working on my Masters and a professional Strategic Management certification at Harvard. I'm constantly fundraising for charities. I believe in diversity as well as giving back to the community!
*Some of my PERSONAL VIEWS:
DRUGS AND ALCOHOL: I do not use drugs or smoke and I'm looking for a roommate with similar views. I'm a very responsible light drinker (mostly weekend nights), who doesn't bring the party home.
VISITORS: I am not very fond of living in crowded places, besides I work a lot, so please let's both use our common senses as far as having people over. On these occasional situations, when visitors are over, I ask that they respect my space, peacefulness and food.
PETS: I am severely allergic to cats.
NOISE: I praise peacefulness and enjoy having a place of refuge when I come back home. I'm pretty quiet around the house and use my headphones. As you can imagine all the sacrifices one must make when going to school and working, I'm on the computer as late as 10 pm-midnight ... When it comes time to sleep all must be quite.
HOBBIES: I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I am friendly, positive, high energy, and would love a roommate to laugh and bond with. I have lived with people from all over the world!
Long term/short term welcome
If you are International, that's a plus ... I love learning from different cultures!

Interaction with Guests
I'm always happy to interact with my dear guests, share special moments, cook together, and show them around. I've become friends with several guests and visited them around the world.
However, I also understand the beauty of diversity, and that perhaps ... you, my guest, might have reasons to do your own thing ...
As always I'll interact with you as little or as much as you would like. That is totally up to you!
Amazingly quiet for the area.
Walking recommended. 10 min. away from most attractions. If needed, bus stop is within two blocks.
OUR LIFESTYLE IS …
ACTIVE: I'm certainly appreciative of people who have their life together. Working/studying hard, being active outdoors and bringing a positive attitude home are the root to a much healthier relationship on a shared home. (for some reason couch potatoes do not match with ZEN)
DRUGS & ALCOHOL: I do not use drugs or drink much (occasionally on weekend nights I might have a glass of wine or a beer.)
SMOKE: Like most places in California, we do not smoke inside. I'm allergic and I cannot stand the smell. If you smoke, perhaps, you should find a place that's more suitable to you.
GREEN 1: Environment is a major concern for anyone close to the beach. If you keep the air flowing naturally (open doors/windows,) heavy cleaning products (mildew and pest control) will not be needed. I’m allergic!
GREEN 2: Turn switches off before leaving any room (lights, fans, Tv’s, etc).
SHOES: Smile!! We have never worn shoes inside. Our carpet is new and you can roll over and/or literally eat on the floor (oriental style.)
AFTER BEACH: please embrace our clean lifestyle: do not enter, sit on the couch or lay in bed while wet. Hosing down your feet before entering will be extremely appreciated as we do not want to bring any creatures or sand to the house.
MAID SERVICES: Although I love a clean home, I'm extremely busy to spend my day cleaning after others. If we are smart we can each pick-up after ourselves and save additional $100 in weekly cleaning fees.
VISITORS: I am not very fond of living in crowded places so please don't bring people home. I work hard on weekdays and need to relax on the weekends.
PETS: We all love pets … feed and be greeted by our Star Nemo (my fish is our only pet -I’m severely allergic to cats and some dogs and cannot share accommodations with them.)
NOISE: Zen is a place of refuge. The best guests are pretty quiet, use headphones and know how to kindly turn a door knob. Ahhh … I have a soft spot in my heart for Zzzzen people!
COMMUNICATION: “A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.” — Dalai Lama. Let's be honest with ourselves and communicate with each other to improve on the quality of our relationship (if we're communicating with the intention of love and caring, we can pretty much say anything, right?)
KARMA: I carry both a double degree in Civil Engineering & Architecture and a BA in Tourism. But it’s in being kind to others that I find greater personal fulfillment and success. “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” — Dalai Lama
I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I am friendly, considerate, positive and would love a roommate to laugh and bond with.
Host was very friendly, she was totally cool and felt like she was a part of our group from the get go. she had an amazing apartment layout that felt very feng shui. Staying there was a very enjoyable experience.Booking the place was not a great experience. Seemed like she was very uncomfortable with booking at first, hinted that she required quiet and respectful guests, then said it was her birthday weekend, had additional guests staying as well as us so it was going to be a filled house. We decided it wasn't a good fit then and asked her to decline request, which she agreed to doing. A few hours later she told us the other guests had bailed as well and if we wanted to stay there, which we said no, which she then went ahead and accepted our reservation request instead of declining it. room also had additional person costs that she collects outside airbnb, so be sure to read full profile description because unfortunately I missed that.
Great experience. The room is clean and cozy. The location is great, close to almosy everything. Leti is a very nice and sweet host. A very nice place to stay.
My wife and I had a great time staying here. It is in the nicer area of Pacific Beach and is walking distance to anything on the beach in that area. A quick taxi ride to La Jolla to enjoy the night life. Minutes from all the attractions in San Diego. Our host was fantastic and gave us great advice on where to do anything our hearts desired. We were never bothered and she is a fun person to hang out with. She can always be reached as well which is very convenient. When we come back to San Diego this is where we will stay. I can't think of being in a more comfortable place!
Highly recommend! Very nice place, close to everything - beach, bars, cafes, restaurants.. Letitia is a very nice host as well! Obrigado por tudo ai! Valeu!
Had an awesome stay here. Leticia was super sweet, considerate, and accommodating. She showed me her favourite beach spots, introduced me to her family and friends, made me brunch and we watched a few movies together. Felt like home right away and it was a very good experience while traveling by yourself.
The location was perfect! Calm with walking distance to the beach and Tourmaline for surf, great cafés just around the corner where you can work and a short walk to the bars and restaurants around Garnet area. Good parking spot right by the house too!
Leticia is fun and friendly. She was very accommodating with my late arrival time, we had a nice conversation and made me feel at home right away. I’m glad I got to know her and would recommend staying at her place to anybody going to Pacific Beach. Thank you Leticia!
Leticia is quite simply the sweetest host one could hope for. She welcomes you to her home with open arms as she greets you with a hug upon arrival. Leticia quickly puts you at ease with her comfortable way and delicious cooking. After only a few days I'm sure that I've made a friend for life.
Thanks for everything Leticia!
