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. $25/person/night after 2 guests, up to 3. 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*** 

***Who uses the pool?***Anyone staying in the yurt (max of 3), anyone staying in the apartment (max of 4), our family of 3 (sometimes we will have a friend or 2 over especially during summer months) including children at times and another tenant, his name is Chris and you could see him as well...he's very friendly and will be sure to introduce himself if you happen to see him.   We rarely have more than 4 or 5 people in the pool area and if we do, we try to be sure to let our guests know in advance. The pool is very large and It feels  like a small resort/boutique hotel, where you may meet some new people/friends.  There are many different seating areas around the pool and you can keep to yourself if that is what you wish to do. There are times when you may be the only people using the pool as well.  Although the pool area is way better than any apartment and most hotels, If you don't want a shared space with others around, it's probably not a great fit. You can also make your stay as private as you like on the patio or inside the apartment.

*Hot tub use*Please limit use to 1 hour, especially if others want to use as well, it's pretty small. Thank you!

*Please inquire if you would like to book the yurt and apartment at same time, prices are separate. Thank you.

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.

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.

I had an amazing time at San Diego Poolside Yome , the yurt was very comfortable. It is a great place to relax enjoying the pool and hot tub! I loved the outside/ open bathroom and shower it was a plus!

Wow, the vibe of this place is on point. Feels like your on vacation far far away as soon as you walk through the gate that is tuck in between a surrounding neighborhood like a urban Narnia. We loved our stay and the hosts were warm and welcoming. It’s the kinda of place you become regulars at. There’s a couple options for lodging that are perfect for couples and families. It’s a great mixture of nature, amenities and personality.

Beautiful oasis

This is a beautiful Oasis in east San Diego. The bed was warm and welcoming in a semi private back deck behind the pool. The outdoor shower was very refreshing and the pool area is brightly colored with plants and mandala paintings. I loved the environment! The common area consists of the pool and the shower and these areas are highly populated. The people are friendly but this is not a private area for the guests. There are family and friends of family, neighbors and their family dog. This is the owners home so please respect their space and do not expect privacy by the pool. Also Bring plenty of water as there is none to drink! Even though you want to bring your friends and family, because of its beauty, you must refrain.

Response from Heather & Robert, the Host, on August 28th, 2020

Thank you for your feedback, Victoria. It was really nice having you and Gustavo here. Very accurate that one should refrain from bringing people here other than the ones on the reservation, as stated in the ad and in the rule book inside the yurt. And accurate that this is not a private pool area as well, especially during summer months. Accurate on all levels, but our dog is not ever at the pool, I admit I took advantage of the fact that you're a vet and I brought him down and asked your advice on his upcoming surgery, but that does not give you license to have 3 extra people at our house when the rules clearly state otherwise and we even said it's ok to have an extra person, then 2 more were here. Oh, and the water from the sink is totally ok to drink and there is a store down the street...bring some water if you need, like everyone else does. Lesson learned.

My poolside getaway at Heather & Robert's Eucalyptus Hideaway was amazing! Based on the photos, I was excited about my stay, but it was beyond my expectations.

Heather and Robert are very friendly and accommodating. The Yome I stayed in was clean, welcoming, cozy and overall awesome. During my hot August stay, I slept very comfortably by the fan in the Yome.

The Pool is clean and has many cozy spots to lay - both shaded and in the sun - around the pool. Kitchen and fridge is clean. The outdoor garden bathroom and show is really cool and clean. Plenty of privacy there and throughout the property.

Definitely coming back for another stay!

Perfect hideaway! Robert & Heather are wonderful, caring hosts, very nice, easy going and available. We even got treated with squash from their garden! The neighborhood doesn’t reflect what a wonderful charm is hidden here. We are local to San Diego and we felt like we traveled to some remote, beautiful location. Very relaxing, ambient and private. We will be back!

This place was great for a little family glamping trip. We enjoyed the pool, the Yome, and the company. Close to home but felt far away. Enjoyed taking day drives and looking at the lakes nearby. The hosts were great! Something to consider if you have small children- the pool is not fully enclosed just as the hosts explain on the website. Thank you for the fun adventure!

Absolutely incredible experience. My best one across any hosted site so far. Heather is warm and genuine, Robert is respectful and supportive, and their little girl is sweet and smart. They offered as much privacy or as much socialization as I wanted and needed. The pool is incredible and the entire space has a very Bali meets Swiss family Robinson. No one I know believed this place was in El Cajon, it feels surreal! The yurt was cool, comfortable, and bug-free and the bed and pillows were to die for. I wanted to stay forever.
