This creative Euro style nest is elegant and comfortable while urban, mod, rustic and chic. Located in the heart of the upcoming art and design district- Maker's Quarter/East Village. Within a 5-10 minute walk to Downtown, The Gaslamp and the Harbor.
Welcome! What an honor to have you visit with us at our uplifting and cozy Creative Urban Adventure Retreat!
We strive to provide the best service that we can! It is our utmost intention to have you and your guests completely happy with your stay!
This uber cool space is extremely well located in walking distance to Downtown, the Gaslamp and the Convention Center.
The Loft is a converted storefront with two large rooms. Storefront room has a beautiful dining table that seats six. Large windows are tinted- great for viewing out onto the sidewalk and the street- but not the reverse. For total privacy a room divider curtain covers the entire length of the windows.
Front room also serves as a bedroom with a custom built Queen size sleeper sofa. It sleeps two adults very comfortably. This front room connects directly to the larger room with a very comfortable Queen sized bed and an extra Twin bed (super comfortable!). These beds are separated by a beautiful Indian screen.
This room also has a desk for computers and creative projects.
Amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, induction hot plate, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, cups, plates, towels, and filtered drinking water. We provide excellent space heaters for both rooms. We also strive to create a non toxic environment with regards to bed linens, towels and cleaning products. We handcraft our own cleaning supplies with natural and organic ingredients. We also wash all linens and towels with non toxic - Dr. Bronner's Soaps. Complimentary locally roasted organic coffee from Cafe Virtuoso is provided along with a basket of welcome organic scones or muffins.
This loft has its own private bathroom with a shower which opens onto a hallway that has amenities such as a blow dryer and iron etc.
You could not ask for a more wonderful location if you like to enjoy an urban atmosphere-and return to a private quiet retreat! We love music- food and travel- and that is reflected in the photographs and art throughout the space.
Please note! There are three lofts in this commercial -residential building and we live on site in the rear loft.
Welcome! Upon arrival you will enter through the front south entrance from the street! Just send us a text when you arrive and we will be right there to open up and show you around the space. We will make sure you have all of the amenities that you need along with answering any questions you may have! Your quarters will be the two large loft rooms- the front that opens onto the street and the much larger sleeping quarter. Access is available by walking through one room to get to the other. There is a hallway that opens onto the restroom with a shower.
Welcoming our guests is one of the joys of hosting! We look forward to meeting you in person and being available to answer any question or concern you may have! We live on site in back apartment in the building and are available either by phone- text or in person to assist you! We would be delighted to help point you in the right direction and make recommendations etc. for your stay. Please let us know the purpose of your stay and the goals you have for your trip! We would be most happy to make sure that you exceed your expectations!

My wife Ellie and I have been living in the East Village part of downtown for over 14 years. We are both musicians. I am a professional drummer and percussionist, specializing in Brazilian and Cuban music and Ellie is a native of New Orleans and is a singer/songwriter- she writes blues, jazz, country, gospel and R&B. We both love to travel and love experiencing different cultures - particularly through food and music. Ellie worked her way up in the hospitality business in New Orleans and owned three small cafes before leaving there. In 2004-she and I purchased a small historic property three blocks from the ocean in Ocean Beach- it was a small organic cafe heavily influenced by our travels to Cuba and Brazil. The property also had three small studio cottages that we renovated and rented out. We had an opportunity to sell when the market was good in 2006 and then travelled a bit for a few years. We are super excited to have this opportunity to partner with Airbnb and be hosting! It has been a long time goal of ours to have a B&B. This is an exciting venture and realized dream for us. We love hosting and introducing people to the wonderful things that are happening in the city. We especially love making sure our guests are provided with excellent - warm and uplifting retreats. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and making sure that your visit to San Diego exceeds your expectations! Life is a gift- it is to be enjoyed- experienced and savored... that is what we love to do and that is what we are celebrating with our "Creative Urban Adventurer" Retreat! Dream Big... Travel the World...LOVE YOUR LIFE!!!
