What guests are saying:

“Violet & Bill’s master suite and ambiance of their entire home as a whole was so peaceful. I felt extremely comfortable and cozy that I never wanted to leave! My favorite part about staying was the sweet gestures they do for their guests such as sharing/leaving out yummy treats ;-) & the best thing for me as a swimmer was having a pool that I can enjoy everyday! Even though the bedroom is inside their home, you still had all the privacy in the world to enter through the side gates and access your bedroom with a private code. I highly recommend this space if you love a comfortable bed, waking up to a nice Bay view on your private balcony & being tucked away in a quiet neighborhood while being just steps away from grocery stores and food places! Thank you Violet and Bill, I’ll be back :-)”

Hip Home with Spectacular Views

Gaze out across the city and San Diego Bay from this sophisticated retreat. The home features and open-plan layout, warm woods amid neutral grays, a mid-century modern revivalist aesthetic, and an outdoor dining area.

What guests are saying:

“Stayed here for my wife’s birthday just to get away for a bit. The place was awesome. It’s listed as a house but actually appeared to be a guest house on the same property as another, but it definitely feels like it’s own spot. Very private. View was incredible. Only access is a spiral staircase which was wild but cool. Erik was really responsive and accommodating. Neighborhood was quiet. I really liked the location because you could pop over to the beach or the city real easily and then retreat back and relax at the place. All in all it was a great stay and would for sure be back!”
