Description

The space

Guests have lovingly nicknamed the abode, Casa de Paz (House of Peace) for the special peaceful atmosphere the property embodies. As artists and world travelers, people of great patience, peace and love, Casa de Paz is truly a creation of that spirit. Every spare inch of the house was handcrafted in that essence. With a deep respect to the past, the decor, furnishings, stone-work, and rugs all hold stories of many travels and lives lived around the globe. For this reason, the guests who enjoy this unique space the most have an eye for detail and an uncanny ability to sense the stories of humanity behind each article in the home.

The Basics: Casa de Paz comes fully equipped for living with all the bedding, bath towels, beach towels, toiletries, and kitchen supplies (dishes, cookware, coffee maker, utensils etc) that you might need. We have a television in one of the living areas, connected to a Wii with a huge collection of streaming movies, documentaries, and television shows provided by Netflix. There is a master bedroom with queen bed, a private en suite bath and double french doors that open to a large terra cotta tiled balcony that overlooks the canyon, pool patio, and rising moon. There are two additional bedrooms, one full guest bathroom with a shower, two large living rooms, a formal dining room for 6, a modern marble kitchen with a 3 person dinette, and a smaller private balcony off the living room nearest the kitchen.

Out the backdoor from the kitchen, guests can make their way to the backyard and rolling canyon that sits on several acres of land. There is a large pool patio and a pool house for laundry.

This house is perfect for art lovers, nature lovers, rustic designers, world travelers, romantic getaways, quiet family focused getaways, and meditative retreats.

Because of the unfenced pool patio, surrounding cacti in and outside of the home, and the delicate art work in and around the home, parties traveling with young children must be advised that they are to watch their children carefully at all times.

Interaction with guests

As residents of San Diego for the last 15 years, we know of many great tourist attractions and lesser known secret gems. We can be as hands on or hands off as you need. Interested in recommendations? Just ask and we're happy to oblige! While we do travel a lot, we reside nearby when local. When we have guests, we keep to ourselves, but may be seen around the large acre property for yard/property maintenance from time to time.

The neighbourhood

Even though the property is located just a few minutes from downtown, it feels like a rural countryside with large plots of land. It's perfect for people who enjoy countryside living, complete with rooster morning wake-up calls to boot. We have the occasional midnight coyote howl, or dog barking in the night, but we also have the sound of the nightingale and get to enjoy the quiet of the canyon by moonlight. If you happen to be bothered by sound, I've left earplugs in the cabinet for your use.

Other things to note

Please note that your unit is completely private, but there is a small private apartment on the ground floor level with the entrance/exit to that apartment on the opposite side of the house. It is occupied by a single person, and long-term guest He may or may not present during the time of your reservation as he travels frequently.

Please also note: this home is one of the many So Cal homes without central air or heat. While SD is best known for its comfortable weather and mild climate throughout the year, this property may not suit the needs of used to temperature controlled living spaces.

Andrea was always responsive and helpful. The property is as described and suited our needs. The only issue we had was with cleanliness and maintenance in some areas and we have alerted Andrea to the problem. The lack of heating was tricky for a couple of days, but then was no problem as things warmed up.

The home is a beautiful spot with a nice pool and each room is large and well appointed. The property is as advertised, very quiet and very calm. Roosters next door may awaken you in the AM, but its very pleasant. We loved this home.

Spacious house with lots of room for everyone. Good location for going into San Diego or travelling further afield. Lovely garden and view out the back to enjoy breakfast, lunch and barbecue. Nice swimming pool. Miro and Andrea gave good suggestions for places to visit and were great hosts.

Great place to stay - plenty of space, clean, and nice. Very convenient location too - pretty much 15-20 minutes drive to any major San Diego attraction.

Miro & Andrea were great hosts. Very timely responses and even offered to replace a lightbulb for us. Perfect location for my friends to relax when we weren't checking out San Diego. It's a bit far from the city (15-30 min) depending on where you're going but we didn't mind the driving. The house is more stunning than the photos. Pool & backyard were definitely our favorite features (pool is good for a quick dip- water was a bit chilly but the patio spaces were perfect for sun bathing and the cacti are gorgeous!)

The house was very spacious and like the pictures, just a bit older than expected. The only complaint we had was the noisy Rooster in the next house over starts at 4:00AM. It was hot weather and due to no air conditioning the windows had to be open. The host were very nice and accommodating.
