Beauty, privacy, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful surprise to find such a charming place to stay during our three weeks in San Diego visiting our relatives. Deborah was the perfect hostess and the Casita had everything we needed for our comfort. Deborah made us feel at home so much so, that we had our family over for lunch so that they could enjoy the beauty that surrounds Deborah's grounds as much as we did. Waking up to the wonderful sounds of all the different birds that live here was a real treat and watching them from the private comfort of the loveseat in front of the Casita was a real joy. This is definitely a place we will recommend to others, and we are looking forward to staying at the lovey little Casita again when we are in San Diego. Thank you Deborah, for everything.

Perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had an amazing time staying in the little Casita while we visited San Diego in March. It is everything it is advertised to be and even more! Deborah has her darling little place fixed up to provide every comfort you could imagine. We looked forward to coming back to the oasis of the casita every evening after exploring the sights of San Diego. One of the things we were most delighted with in our stay was visiting a little with Deborah. She is a jewel! She graciously showed us her beautiful gardens and even gave me some cuttings to take home from her geraniums. It was fun to talk with her about our mutual love of gardening. Our only regret is that our visit wasn't long enough! We plan to come back and stay again in the Casita sometime when we can stay longer.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to have both of you as guests and new friends. The Casita is an oasis, close enough to all the attractions yet far enough away to be peacefully quiet. I am glad you share the same passion for gardening as I do and I am always happy to share plant cuttings with my guests. I feel very fortunate to live in San Diego where something is always blooming through out the year. Take care and I hope to see you again! Deborah

Paradise in Casa do Oro

  • 5 of 5
This property was everything listed and more. We were welcomed by Deborah and her companion Bear. After we were showned around we were left alone to un-pack and begin our vacation. We started our adventure walking for hours at the San Deigo Zoo. Then coming home every night exhausted we would sleep like babies only to wake up by the choir of birds. Deborah keeps her yard an oasis with so many plants to observe. An orange tree growing in the corner by the pool was amazing. My husband took pictures of humming birds in a nest and a beautiful sunset from the terrace as we dined with friends.
Old town San Diego with the Mormon Battalion Museum and various shops, open markets and lots of restaurants to choose from was a full day of enjoyment.
We would recommend this rental to any couple and will try to return as our schedules allow.

The casita was supplied with everything we needed. fridge was full of stuff and fresh fruit to enjoy. The bed was great! We got a great nights sleep every night. Eating breakfast oustide by the pool every morning was awesome.

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure hosting guests that were able to appreciate and enjoy my little paradise. Most of the hummingbirds have flown their nests now but remain in my yard feeding on all the rich pollinating flowers. It is so fun to observe them and all the other birds surrounding my oasis in San Diego. I will look forward to seeing you again! Deborah

Luxury and privacy in one place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the month of February in this wonderful little casita. We had previously stayed in a nice motel that we liked a lot, but thought we would try something new. It was a great decision.
This casita is very private and the surroundings are like being in an arboretum with beautiful foliage all around the yard. Inside, the main room is large with 2 comfortable chairs. It is furnished as though it was to be used by the owner. The decor is very nice and the towels are thick and plush. There are many extras, such as nice lotions and soaps. The fruit bowl was full when we got there.
Outside the front door is a very comfortable couch, plus several other seating areas. The pool is very large, although too cold to use in February.
Deborah, the owner, was very helpful, but kept out of our way and gave us plenty of privacy. I would suggest this place to anyone. We loved it.

The Cozy Casita!

  • 5 of 5
We had been planning a trip to San Diego to celebrate our son and nephew's graduation from Marine Corp boot camp. I was so excited and starting searching the web for good deals and such. The only problem was that my husband had just had surgery on his shoulder and was in a sling. We were going to be spending 10 days somewhere and I knew with him hurting he would not like being in a crowded or noisy hotel. So I found this secluded studio. What a fantastic find! It was not only very private but it felt like home. It is extremely clean and is stocked with everything you may need. You have your own drive-way and entrance. We felt very safe and we were close to all the attractions. We were amazed at the lush gardens around us even in December. We woke up each day looking for Bear, Deborahs dog. He meanders the property and you just become friends with him right away. Deborah is the nicest person, she accommodated my husband with a chaise lounge chair that she brought in the casita so he would be more comfortable. We could not have had a better time or stayed at a better place. God bless the Casita!!

We're so happy we found this!

We're a couple from Germany and stayed at the Casita for 8 days in August 2012.

We first contacted Deborah, the owner, by mail. She was very friendly and forthcoming when we made the reservation and we felt good vibes already.
When we arrived after a long flight, she sent us straight to the Casita and assured us that the formalities could wait until the morning.

The Casita, located in a beautiful setting, is nice and super clean. The pool, right outside, is very well maintained and inviting. All around the Casita and the pool, there are many places to sit, roofed by an impressive variety of gorgeous plants.
All provided products are carefully picked and of the highest quality. Wireless Internet access is free and works flawlessly.

The Casita is only a couple of minutes from the main drag but far enough to be nice and quiet. We felt very safe there. A parking spot is provided inside the gate.

Deborah is an incredibly considerate person. She left us alone when we didn't contact her but was ready to help any time when we had questions.

Problems were taken care of immediately--before we had even noticed that the pool pump had stopped working it got repaired. Deborah went out of her way to make sure we weren't bothered by the presence of the repairman.

We truly felt that the Casita was a home away from home. This was the first week of our three week journey and the Casita remained unmatched. We were very sad to leave and we wished to be back there when we stayed in a horrid hotel room in Monterey.
If we ever get the opportunity to come back to San Diego, we will definitely try to get a reservation here. Deborah's Casita is highly recommended.

Right after our trip we sent Deborah a mail, thanking her for the "wonderful place to stay that turned out to be the shining light of our entire vacation". That's exactly what it was.

Take Care,
