Gorgeous brand new YOME on elevated platform surrounded by trees. What is a YOME, you ask?  It's a wonderful mix of a yurt and a dome and it's beautiful! Find yourself chilling by the pool or taking a nice hot shower after a hike at the lake. This is glamping at it's finest. Fan, light, space heater & essential oil diffuser inside tent. Outdoor bathroom with hot shower and flush toilet. Grill a delicious meal on the gas BBQ. Put your drinks in the full size fridge outside.  The wifi is strongest near the pool - the signal is weak in the campsite area. Please read everything about the space before requesting to book.

We want you to know that we’re doing our part to help our guests stay safe by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.) before you check in. Rest assured, we are adhering to the CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting our space.

This is an outdoor private YOME near our pool.  There is a bathroom with flush toilet, hot shower and sink with mirror.  Access to pool, BBQ (bring utensils you would bring camping, plates, napkins, towels, etc.  There is no sink to wash dishes  so paper/disposable stuff required if you plan on cooking)  Glamp experience :) Hot tub closes at 9pm.

***Please  be aware that we do not allow anyone on the property who is not a registered guest. Since the pool area is shared with our family as well as anyone staying in the Poolside Lounge, and in the spirit of maintaining a somewhat intimate/private pool area, we ask that you please not invite your own guests.  The maximum number of people in the Yome is 3. $20/person/night after 2 guests. Thank you.***

***If you are unable to make it by the requested check-in time (9pm), please let us know before booking.  We will do our best to accommodate your request*** 

We are located on the border of El Cajon and Lakeside in San Diego (about 20 miles east of Downtown) with easy access to the 8 freeway.  We are just beginning to live our longtime dream of sharing our land and space with travelers, artists and friends.  We have a 2.5 acre property and the Yome is down at the pool, separated from the main house.  

The pool, hot tub and outside bathroom is shared with our small family and anyone staying in the Poolside Lounge during the day if people are swimming, so you may meet some new people while staying at our place.  The outdoor bathroom will be shared when our family or friends are at the pool swimming or hanging out and need to use the toilet, but most likely during the evening hours, it will be all yours, we always try to give a heads up if there will be anyone using the bathroom in the evening.  There is a door with a lock, so it is private when you need privacy.  We recommend keeping your personal bathroom items in the Yome during your stay. Please note that we are very close to the 8 freeway and you can hear it in the distance at night. We offer a sound machine which helps to diffuse the noise. If you would like the hot tub on past 9pm, we can arrange that with additional fee.  If you would like this added service, please let us know so we can make arrangements.  Cost for hot tub heat is included in the rate you are paying (up to 1 hour of use) up until 9pm.   Hot tub closes at 9pm (unless you pay the extra fee) and is shared with our family and anyone staying in the apartment.  The hot tub comfortably fits 4 people max, so it's pretty small.  Please let us know if you'd like to use and we will happily turn it on and off for you, as it's manual at this time.  Please limit your time to 30 minutes if there are others staying on the property and you see they want to use as well.  Pool is not heated and costs $125/day to heat. Please let us know if you would like that added service. Thank you!  This is a pretty chill spot, a lot of family (at times) around environment, not a party pad in any way. The Yome does offer a lot of privacy, but the pool area is shared. Please don't book if you are looking for total seclusion and privacy without another soul around...this is not it. It can be cold in the winter months and warm during the summer...we try to make your stay as comfy as possible :) There is no microwave or any other way to make food other than the BBQ here, this is glamping (glamorous camping), not your regular apartment or hotel. The lighting is ambient around the pool area at night, so it's not great for doing a lot of technical things at night or cooking a full on meal that you would at home (recommend doing that while it's still light out).  That being said, it is a wonderful place to find peace, quiet and comfort.  During the summer, there's the pool outside and a fan inside and winter offers electric blanket and space heater and a fire pit at the pool. There is also a little coffee machine by the big fridge outside.

This is an outdoor private YOME near our pool.  There is a bathroom with flush toilet, hot shower and sink with mirror.  Access to pool, BBQ (bring utensils you would bring camping, plates, napkins, towels, etc.  There is no sink to wash dishes, so paper/disposable stuff required if you plan on cooking)  Glamp experience :) Hot tub closes at 9pm. There is a shared refrigerator, please leave room for others to put their drinks, etc.  Anything that is not yours is ours or someone in the apartments, so please don't assume that it's up for grabs. Also, please keep your towels, bathing suits and general clutter in the area of the Yome since the pool area is shared. Thank you!

We have been working to make this a special place for travelers to come and chill at the pool, relax in one of the seating areas and just have a great time while visiting San Diego.  There are lots of birds, including hawks and cute little quail. We have organic herb and veggie gardens that we’d love to share with you.  We offer fresh organic eggs from our amazing chickens for $4/dozen please let us know if you’d like some. Our gorgeous Yome has a comfy queen size real bed and a twin size futon as well as a fan & space heater. It is steps from the pool and very private.  The Yome is is situated on an elevated platform under a gorgeous canopy of Chinese Elm trees.  The trees have lot's of bird families, so that means your new alarm clock is  a bird :)  There are motion solar lights around the bathroom and walkways.  There are extra blankets if needed in the tent.  There is an outdoor bathroom (shared when anyone is at pool, mostly during summer months ) steps away with a hot shower, sink with mirror and regular flush toilet.  It is lit by solar lights, there is no electricity in the bathroom. 

Nearby activities include Lake Jennings, which offers fishing and hiking, as well as several gorgeous parks to visit.  There are lot's of wineries in Ramona, about 45 minutes east in the mountains, as well as Julian to explore.  Our glamp is great for a weekend destination or just for a rest on your way to another adventure.  Although we love pets (we have a few dogs on the property), we cannot accept guests with pets at this time.  Parking is in our driveway across from the pool area.  Just text us when you get here and we'll make sure to show you around.  Please make every effort to check in by 9pm.  If that doesn't work, just let us know before you book and we can most likely accommodate you.  Thank you

There is a fan, space heater, coffee station and a light as well as a power strip to charge your devices as well as an essential oil diffuser and soothing sound machine.  There is a little noise from the 8 freeway in the distance and the occasional dog barking from the neighbors, but the sound machine works nicely to help minimize the external noises if there are any.   

We are in the process of making our land unique and magical, which means we are always working on one thing or another around the property…it's truly a work in progress at our place here.  Our vision is to transform the landscape into a complete sanctuary retreat, and it’s coming along quite nicely.  We are excited to share it with our guests and will be available during your whole stay if you need anything at all.  We are just a text away and we live on the property and are often down gardening, working, swimming, etc.

Nearby activities include Lake Jennings, which offers fishing and hiking, as well as several gorgeous parks to visit.  Our glamp is great for a weekend destination or just for a rest on your way to another adventure.  The pool is not fully fenced, so we only allow kids who can swim.  Although we love pets (we have a few dogs on the property), we cannot accept guests with pets at this time.  Parking is in our driveway, which is very safe and close to the pool area.  Just text us when you get here and we'll make sure to show you around.

If you're looking for a warm getaway close to San Diego, look no further. The property's pool is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun, and the tent and bed provided for sleeping are more than comfortable. The site also offers an amazing outdoor bathroom. The hosts are extremely welcoming, and will happily provide you with all of the best nearby restaurants and go-to spots. The property is a blast to explore, and has all sorts of interesting things to see. I would recommend arriving while it's still warm out to enjoy the pool, then having a calm evening on the pool deck and grilling dinner on the barbecue.

When we drove through the neighborhood to get to the camp area, we were a little deterred because it looks like you are in a cookie cutter neighborhood. Once we arrived, the hosts were so sweet and showed us the place. Everything was absolutely perfect and just as pictured. We spent the day at Lake Jennings and then arrived at camp in the afternoon to bbq and spend some time at the pool. The bed is super comfy too! Would definitely stay here again!

Wish I could have stayed longer. Heather's place is heavenly, and the tent and private, outdoor bathroom were gorgeous, really exceeded my expectations. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a quirky getaway at the edge of SD.

The hosts were very nice and welcoming and showed us the place upon our arrival. The tent was cute and the beds were comfortable. Outdoor bathroom/shower was great. We especially enjoyed the pool after a long hike at Lake Jennings. I hope we can come back again. It was a nice, relaxing getaway from home.

I spent four days with my two boys there looking some time alone with them without their friends. This was more than perfect for that. It’s a whole different way of camping/glamping! Full-size refrigerator, and a gas grill! We played in the pool all day, and got a chance to interact with Heather, Robert and Manica in the evenings having water fights! The bed is so comfy, the tent is beautiful, and the outdoor shower/bathroom is perfect. I wouldn’t have known there was no hot water if they hadn’t told me. They also have solar lights placed in all the right places around the property with motion sensors that made me feel safe walking around at night !
I definitely recommend taking them up on their vegetable garden. I’ve never had tomatoes that yummy .
I am looking forward to going back soon, so please don’t be my competition on booking it, LOL

My family had the most wonderful time camping in this spot for 3 nights. We arrived to a beautiful well decorated yurt tent. The site is very well set up and our hosts Heather and Robert were fantastic! It was very convenient for us to go to beaches around San Diego area during day time and come back to our campsite in the afternoon and cool off in the swimming pool. We loved it so much! I highly recommend this spot. We will definitely be back when we get to San Diego area.

Heather was a great host and very attentive to our needs. The space was fun and had what we needed for our surf vacation. The tent was nicely set up with a comfy queen bed, chair, end table and a lamp. There were a few ants around the tent which is to be expected while camping, but when they got inside it was difficult to relax.
The pool was amazing, clean and the perfect temperature! The outdoor bathroom was unique and we enjoyed it. The cold water shower was sufficient for our needs. Warm water will be a nice upgrade when it happens. Overall a great time at the place which we enjoyed very much!

This was a total gem! The bed was comfortable, the outdoor showers were so relaxing, and the pool was perfect on a hot California morning! Heather and her husband were accommodating but gave us plenty of privacy. Loved this place and wish we could’ve stayed longer!
