We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived and our hosts even invited us over for dinner during our stay. They were friendly with us the whole time but also gave us our space as a family. The studio is very private and in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance (within a mile) of a 7/11 and some eateries. A Target and Supermarket is within a few miles and the beaches of San Diego are within a half hour. We found a few parks and hikes very close to this rental and enjoyed a lot of the outdoors during our stay here.
