About the property

Beautiful and Relaxing experience in the perfect location

San Diego Zen

Beautiful and peaceful retreat located next to the Marston Hills Canyon, in Hillcrest, a couple of blocks from University Avenue, within walking distance to some of San Diego’s finest restaurants, bars, shops, the Zoo, Balboa Park, Museums, Theatres, Balboa Golf Course and many other attractions.

Within a five minute drive you can be in downtown San Diego, the airport, Seaport Village, Petco Park (home of Padres baseball team), the Convention Center, Little Italy, Embarcadero, Fashion Valley mall, North Park, the Chargers' Qualcomm Stadium, historic Old Town, the Marina, many of the best restaurants, nightclubs, bars and much more. You can also enjoy Ocean beach, Liberty Station, San Diego's best breweries, Point Loma, Pacific Beach and Sea World, which are only ten minutes away.

An amazing diversity of restaurants and cuisines are available within walking distance of the area. You can enjoy Japanese, Mexican, American, Thai, Indian, Persian, Greek, Steakhouse, Vietnamese, Chinese, Brazilian cuisine, and more. 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 recently fully renovated, 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.

In SD Zen you will be able to enjoy a huge master suite, with a 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 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 100-plus channels available to you.

Your own private bathroom within the suite has a hydromassage spa tub, and a huge 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 huge 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.

Another great amenity the property offers is having your own gated private parking spot, this is a huge advantage in San Diego. Also, the entire property has been fenced with beautiful natural stone and redwood for your privacy and security.

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 where you can walk and explore the different trails.

Other included amenities:

Gated parking in the premises

Iron and ironing board

Shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, bath ropes

Toiletries

And much more...

I would be happy to provide you with directions and recommendations for the best local restaurants, bars and attractions. “San Diego Zen” will be an amazing and unforgettable experience!!!!

The place is absolutely gorgeous. Super luxurious comfortable bed and shower as well as a jetted tub. Loved the outdoor area, the patio area is so beautiful and relaxing. Ricardo was extremely responsive and helpful. Location is unbeatable, close everything, payed $4 uber to downtown, and at the same time is such a peaceful and quiet place. Loved the recommendation for restaurants. Amazing place, totally recommend!!!!

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.

Great location. Well-appointed casita

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this location highly. We especially enjoyed the outside courtyard, which was fully equipped with gas grill, refrigerator, and a large dining table with very comfortable chairs. The room had ample closets and a comfortable bed. There were also small appliances (coffee, toaster, etc.) The bathroom was outstanding -- shower with body sprays. Truly spa-like!

The location was also excellent. There is an entrance to Balboa Park just a block away. Handy for good hiking. The attractions at Balboa Park are a short drive away. Within a few blocks is an area with lots of restaurants -- an easy walk. Also a safe neighborhood.
