Point Loma, first discovered by European explorers in the early 16th century is known as the place 'where California began.' Bordered by the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, the area is a natural respite and offers sublime views of the water and the naturally magnificent city of San Diego in the near distance.

Our property, located adjacent to the marina is now a destination within this intimate community. Clean lines, Portuguese influences, memorable food and beverage and refreshing simplicity all combine to host a spectacular idea within the Monsaraz.

Drawing upon the influence of the area's architecture and the unique attributes of place and time - we believe that interiors and exteriors must reveal themselves to inhabitants as a series of seamless experiences. Consisting of hand hewn materials, custom handcrafted tiles complemented by relaxed user friendly interior palette. The design is artful and simple, well executed to keep the finishes simple and fluid throughout the edifice.

Evocative use of materials, clever play of heritage and warm easy interiors are what makes us so very special. The F&B is distinct and the courtyard has become a part of the neighborhood.
