Should you choose to stay in, for a relaxing night of grilling or cooking at home, you will find a Ralphs, Whole Foods and Trader Joes within a couple of blocks. In the morning, you can wake up and enjoy a variety of local coffee shops with tastes of Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico or India, in addition to a Starbucks for more local flavor. There is also a local 24-hour Rite Aid pharmacy available to you as well.

The house is situated on a cul-de-sac end-street, peaceful and quiet next to the canyon, but also close to everything. The property was fully renovated on 2012, and The City of San Diego by the Hillcrest Town Council honored the property with the LION award for enhancing the appearance of the City.

Parking in San Diego can be very complicated. San Diego Zen includes one gated off street parking spot for you. It can accommodate even the biggest SUV.

All the beautiful spaces that you see in the photos are for your exclusive enjoyment, they are not shared with other units or guests, no one has access to this areas, they are for your private use.

In SD Zen you will enjoy the best amenities like tempur-pedic King-size bed, Egyptian cotton sheets and a pillow menu. The extra large closets can accommodate all of your clothes, without cramping, as well as your shoes in the shoe-only closet and your souvenirs and shopping bags. There is also a spacious desk where you can connect your devices to the home Wi-Fi network, check email, plan your trip and work from your vacation home. When you need to rest after exploring beautiful San Diego, turn on the 42-inch LED TV and enjoy one of the 200+ channels available to you, rent a movie and use the blue ray or turn apple tv on.

The amazing spa/bathroom is equipped with hydromassage spa tub, walk-in rain shower with top and side jets, as well as beautiful modern double-sinks with Swarovski crystal LED lights.

Crossing just outside of the beautiful French-doors of the Master suite, you will find your own outdoor kitchen, always usable in sunny San Diego, on a seven-hundred square foot patio, with a built-in barbecue, a mini-refrigerator, microwave, toaster and a coffee maker. The patio also has a dining set and an outdoor living area with a beautiful red wood pergola that contrasts with the gold Brazilian granite countertops. Enjoy sitting down on the patio with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. The entire property has been fenced with beautiful natural stone and redwood for your privacy and security. You also have your own enclosed parking area with an automatic gate.

The entire place is professionally cleaned every single time a guest checks out and before arrival. A house keeping team of professionals washes and deep cleans everything in the house to provide the best SD Zen experience.

A bus stop is available only two minutes walking from the house and the trolley station is also minutes away. Directly in front, is an entrance to Balboa Park and the canyon, take and after dinner walk there is very peaceful and relaxing.

Perfect for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I LOVED Ricardo’s place. The outside area is amazing and the bed is big and comfy. Ricardo’s place is located in a quiet neighborhood, which we loved. But is also only a few minutes from downtown, the San Diego Zoo, North Park, etc. It was perfect for a weekend getaway. The check in/check out process was super easy, we’ll be staying here again for sure.

LOVED THE LOCATION & PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

This property is centrally located to EVERYTHING! We were close the highway and just a short drive from Coronado, La Jolla, etc. Plus, the city of Hillcrest is darling and filled with lots of restaurants, bars, etc. The property was just as shown and so nice and quiet. The patio was a nice place to just hangout and chill. I would definitely recommend staying here and plan to stay here again when I visit. It is a true gem!

Absolutely Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, stayed at the Zen studio four our San Diego vacation, what an AMAZING choice. The neighborhood is very very nice, peaceful and quiet, yet close to so many cool restaurants and shops. Whole foods, Ralph's and Trader Joe's are a couple of blocks away. Is literally next to the park, within a few minutes of the zoo and downtown. All San Diego must see places and beaches are within 10 to 15 minute drive, we visited La Jolla, Del Mar, Pacific Beach, Sea World, Coronado, it was amazing. Having our own parking spot was amazing too.

The studio is super modern, yet with a vintage charm. The bathroom is huge, with an amazing tub, the best is the rain shower with the side jets. The bed is very comfortable, it was perfect to get a really good rest after exploring all day. Our favorite part of the studio was the outdoor kitchen/patio/dinning area, is huge and beautiful, the furniture is so comfortable, we grilled almost every night and relaxed in the patio enjoying a glass of wine, this area is private for the studio, no one else has access to it. In the mornings sitting we made coffee and sat the patio, so relaxing, listening to all kinds of nature sounds and birds. Seriously photos do not do justice.

The owner was very very nice and responsive. We can't wait to go back and stay at the Zen Studio. Ricardo Thank you so much for your hospitality, much appreciated.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable contemporary studio with pleasant outdoor dining area. Perfect size for a couple. Refrigerator is tiny (don't plan on tons of groceries) but adequate. Bathroom was idyllic. Owner Ricardo was extremely responsive. It was great to have a parking space, and the neighborhood is quiet, safe, and close to lots of restaurants and shops a short jaunt away.
