About Kathryn Boe
Long time La Mesa residents! Love to travel and love to use VRBO when we do travel. We are semi-retired - Geologist and Nurse Practitioner/Medical Anthroplogist.
Kathryn Boe purchased this Studio in 1996
Why Kathryn Boe chose La Mesa
La Mesa is (almost) always sunny! We find we like that quality as opposed to the fog that can be ever present right on the coast. So, living inland is our choice.
What makes this Studio unique
A personal space, made more so with owner's travel momentos, rotating art from the main house, pottery, antiques handed down in the family.
Outside smoking OK
There is a white binder on site that describes how to enjoy the property and what it offers and at the same time treat it well!

Pleasant stay at Oliver's Place
Well equipped and well supplied with everything we needed. Cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the views out the windows and the breezes that came in. We liked the vertical garden in back and the patio. The property is very conveniently located for us, near downtown La Mesa. We are looking forward to staying at Oliver's Place again.
We thought this place was great for the price. It’s not fancy, feels a bit like a cottage. Bed was very comfortable and we slept great with the windows open and the cool breeze. Had everything we needed and the little deck/garden area was nice. No dishwasher but not a big deal to hand wash dishes. Having a parking space was great and everything was as advertised. San Diego and other beaches/attractions were just a short drive away. Thanks for having us!
Like home away from home
This studio was prefectly appointed with everything you would need. Fresh drinking water, clean kitchen with all the necessary appliances and a good coffee maker. The deck was charming and the gardens beautiful. The host was very nice, I wish I didn't have to work during the day as I would have enjoyed the premises more.
I highly recommend the whole experience.
Comfortable and Private Home-away-from-home
This studio has every convenience and is so comfortable (even in the heat of summer) and private. From the granite countertops to the walk-in closet to the washer dryer and deck with sunset views, this place is ideal for relaxing and enjoying La Mesa nd beyond for as long as you want. Kathryn is easily accessible if needed and keeps your comfort in mind in every way.
La Mesa is awesome
Had a great time. We stayed here during a trip for San Diego comic con. It was accurately listed and perfect for my partner and I.
The trolley was pretty convenient. We walked to and from the Orange Line. That dropped us off about a 15 minute walk to the SD Convention Center. It saved us some money comparing the 2.50 it cost us to take the trolley versus an Uber that cost about 20. It did take about an hour door to door to get there. So we mixed the trolley with taking Lyft when we wanted to sleep later or get back earlier. And it was nice having La Mesa to come back to because we could get something to eat or drink before bed.
10/10 would stay there again!

Our landscape is hilly with twinkling night lights and great sun set views. You can see the lights of Tijuana to the south, some 30 miles away. Inland locations like La Mesa offer more sunshine during the cool months than do the coastal communities.
