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 roommate?
Are you a motivated learner? Roommate, look no further!
My roommate is moving back home and this ZEN oasis can be just perfect for you! 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 roommate. I moved to San Diego over 13 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 who want to study while still enjoy rewards from living by the beach, in a very calm and convenient neighborhood like 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!

*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!

This room sleeps:

-Backyard + outdoor space
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.
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!
Had a wonderful experience here, Leticia made adorable breakfasts for us, and helped us a lot. The rooms were attracting and I will be back one day.
If you’re ever looking for a place to stay while in Sunny San Diego, you have no need to look any further! I moved in with Leticia in September 2013, and stayed until December of the same year; and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to call home while in America.
Leticia’s house is in the perfect location; with the beach, grocery shop and the amazing Garnet Street just a few blocks away. 7/11 is also only block away, for when you’re craving a movie, or a late-night snack after studying all night.
Leticia’s house is the perfect balance of peace, quiet and comfort. Her house is filled with goodies from all over the world, which make for incredible stories! Leticia has done an amazing amount of travelling, and her and I got to share some amazing stories with one another, and also encouraged each other to visit new places!
Leticia is more than willing to share her great stories, grab a bite to eat, or show you around her beautiful city, when she’s not running around changing the world! I got to share many a sunset with her, as well as meet some new and interesting people via her. I was lucky enough to attend one of her Toast Masters meetings, where I got to share my stories of my year of travelling with insightful and genuinely interested people – what a treat!
Leticia has an amazing family, who I was very lucky to spend some time with on occasion, including her father who visited from Brazil while I was living with her. A gracious family who absolutely insisted that I come to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014, where the whole family will be meeting up. If you ever want a family away from home – you’ll find it here!
Leticia is an amazing woman, with great ambition, but also the biggest heart! She inspired me to grit my teeth and study for my SATs (while she was studying for her GMAT), but also inspired me to not take life too seriously! She is a woman of great courage, and selflessness, who would give you the clothes on her back if you needed it. She really touched my heart, and the small adventures we took when she had time off of work will always have a place in my heart!
In only three months, Leticia has become one of my best friends, and I hope to share many more adventures with her, whether it be back in San Diego, in Brazil, or in my hometown in South Africa! The only negative thing I have to say is – if I‘m in town, you might have to find somewhere else to stay, because I refuse to live anywhere else!
All my love Leti! Hope you get to meet plenty more amazing people, and I hope they are just as inspired by you as I am!

How can I describe my stay at Leticia’s and where to start?
It’s hard to find the right words because Leticia is such an amazing and lovely person.
There is nothing more you can expect from a host and she always goes the extra mile for you.
Starting with showing you around in Pacific Beach, cook breakfast, lunch and dinner, take you to an awesome yoga lesson on the beach if you want to and so on.
She always tries to make you feel comfortable and is there for you if you need her, even if she is busy.
There is so much more to say about her but not enough space so you have to make the experience on your own.
The time we spend together was fantastic. We had some great conversations and were joking around a lot.
For me it felt like staying with a very good friend I know for a long time. I’m glad and pleased that I was able to meet her and we became friends. So when my time at Leticia’s ended it was kind a sad to leave.
About her home I have just one word, AWESOME.
It is super clean, beautiful decorated and spreads that relaxing and charming ZEN vibe the pictures let you expect. It is so close to the beach (an easy 5min walk) and also to the nightlife at Garnet. Even downtown San Diego is just a short 20min drive away if you want to go to Gaslamp or Coronado Island. The neighborhood is very quiet, safe and friendly and there is a lot of free street parking if you have a car with you.
So if you ask me “should I stay at her place?”….”Of course, absolutely (but not at the same time I want to ;) )”
You will not find a better place and host in San Diego…California…maybe the entire US!
Hey dear, thank you so much for everything, already miss hanging out with you and hope I will see you soon.
How can I describe Denis? It’s hard to find the right words because Denis is such an amazing and lovely person. You can not expect a better guest. Dennis always goes the extra mile for you! Starting with being very considerate of you and your house guidelines. He is always making you feel comfortable about everything. There is so much to say about him and not enough space here.
Denis delighted me with his visit at the ZEN for almost one week. We spent a great time together. It was more like hosting a long-time friend. Together we went exploring places, restaurants, fun activities etc. It was very kind that he offered to drive and take me out from time to time. His friend Brittany was a sweetheart. remember when I said Denis always go the extra mile for you? He even called his mom on (website hidden) and asked her for a couple German recipes he patiently took the time to translate for me. When I invited him for meals, he would always offer to help ... one time he went out and surprised me a few minutes later with a delicious desert cake ...
And I'm glad we became friends! Letting him go wasn't easy ... but I know he will be back soon!
So if you ask me “should I host Denis?”…”Only if you can be as kind and generous as he is."
Dear, thank you so much for being so giving, understanding and loving. It was so nice having you around ... I miss hanging out with you. I hope you know you're always welcome in my lovely ZEN home. I'm hoping to see you soon!
(when you have a chance could you please email me photos of our Boat trip?)
