I am originally from Montreal, Canada. I have a Ph.D. in psychology.I do counseling ,business consulting and executive coaching.I am interested in helping people act and create their lives through wisdom and a deep sense of personal power. I teach and do hypnosis and meditation, I work in person,on Skype and telephone I dance salsa. I love to travel and I am in general on an adventure of life . I am committed to helping us all to have a more heart full and fulfilling life and world! Welcome to my house which is a little slice of beauty, comfort, healing and fun.

Beverlee Hockenstein purchased this house in 2010

Why Beverlee Hockenstein chose Bay Park

This property has a magical and warm feeling.I go out in the backyard and I feel healed! It is like a fairy land for me with koi ponds and mature plants. It is hard to choose which is more amazing the indoors or the outdoors There are so many nooks and crannies inside and out ,The inside has no square rooms every part has an interesting twist. It is So cozy and homey.Each bedroom is roomy and the carpets are all unique and upscale. I love that it is so central to everything it is easy and quick to go anywhere from here. The house is literally minutes to all of the excitement of San Diego

yet you come here and you can find relaxation ,space and quiet. It is unusual to have this kind of space in the middle of a city. The house is large enough to meet and enjoy your people you come with but you can also find some private space to work, relax hang out or even meditate.

What makes this house unique

I love that you can see mountains through the windows and a slice of the ocean on a clear day. I love the cathedral ceiling made of oak and the fireplaces.The foliage is so rich and gives an amazing privacy. It is like being in paradise! everything is so close!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were so pleased with our stay at Casa di Beverlee! It was amazing!!! There aren't words to describe how incredible our stay was. We have three children, 11, 5, and 6 and her house was spacious, safe, and a wonderful environment for our kids. Our kids loved waking up to feed the fish and we loved the close proximity to Sea World!! Beverlee was the most amazing host and we will definitely be back every year if we can! Thank you Beverlee for making our stay comfortable and relaxing. I cannot say enough good things about our experience and would recommend Beverlee's place to everyone we know!

With Kindest Regards,

Liza and family

Ideal in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I carefully researched all lodging options before our trip, this home surpassed my picky expectations! Tranquility galore, meticulously clean, excellent location to everywhere in SD. Beverlee is the consummate hostess, there if you need anything at all, then poof, your privacy abounds. To say the kitchen is well stocked is an understatement, every device and gadget is at your fingertips. The beds are divine. As fabulous as the inside is, out every door and window lies lush little enclaves of sheer joy. The gazabo was covered in wisteria while we were there, true spring beauty. The koi pond was mesmerizing. The sunrises we enjoyed renewed our souls. All Beverlee asked was for respect for her home and neighbors. It was just a pleasure to stay in this gem, would absolutely go again!

Calm & Joy During Our Son's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our son was married in SD earlier this month. We stayed at the Sancuary. Beverlee was a friendly, nearly invisible, except at the right times, hostess.

Staying at her VRBO was calming, and provided a setting for so much joy. Thank you Beverlee, we expect to see you soon.

We highly recommend this property, it's all we expected & more!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay here. The property is lovely! The home is warm and inviting. Beverlee was a wonderful host. Her kindness and hospitality added the extra special component to elevating the accommodations to the next level. She had welcome treats and food in the frig awaiting us. As we got in quite late, it was greatly appreciated. As we were there over Easter, she even had something special, with our permission which was thoughtful of her to ask, for the kids!!! The living space on the first floor has an open floor plan which was very nice. Everything was spotless. Upstairs were 2 comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom. She provided a thick mattress for our 5 year old to sleep on which she loved. There was plenty of closet space and hangers! The only bathroom is on the second floor, which wasn't a problem for us, but if stairs are an issue that is something to be aware of in renting . The gardens were beautiful and peaceful. There was a lovely orange tree in full bloom, which we enjoyed coming from a cold climate. She has gates on the upper deck which helped with our toddler going down the stairs and exploring the water pools without us. The property is centrally located to shopping, the zoo, Torrey Pines State Park, the tide pools, and several beautiful beaches and parks. If we return to the area in the future, we will not hesitate to rent Beverlee's lovely home, again.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this beautiful home and stayed two weeks. Beverlee’s home is a warm and inviting space and we appreciated the thoughtful amenities she provided. The backyard is a lovely haven of flora and fauna. We particularly enjoyed an evening fire in the stone fireplace. Thank you Beverlee!
