My husband and I and our 3 kids absolutely LOVED this Windansea beach house! Ingrid was very welcoming, responsive and helpful, and was available for any questions during our stay...she actually lives right down the street. We stayed on the second floor of this lovely home, and it met our needs perfectly. The house is literally 2 or 3 houses away from a beautiful beach with tide pools and an awesome surf break. Ingrid let us borrow some beach toys, and we literally spent hours exploring the incredible tidal pools along the shore - that was my childrens' favorite thing to do. We don't have anything like that in Florida! Convenient place to wash your feet by the door downstairs after each beach adventure so you don't track sand everywhere.
The house is decorated with a colorful beach theme and has lots of windows so it is very bright and sunny. There is a cute balcony upstairs with a grill for outdoor cooking. Huge TV in the den/living area, two large bedrooms, bathroom, and a kitchen and dining room/breakfast nook make the house inviting and comfortable. Free wi-fi was included - we had everything we needed.
It's about a 5-10 minute walk into downtown La Jolla, so we were able to walk to restaurants and shops in the evening. This was a great home base to explore and enjoy all the local attractions. Perfect size for a family with small children, or two adult couples. You could rent out the top and first floor units if you had a bigger group. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe and is full of gorgeous million-dollar homes. Incredible view of the sunset over the water.
I can't say enough great things about this beautiful house - it is full of charm, right next to the beach, located in the awesome community of Windansea, very well-maintained, and owned by very attentive, sweet hosts! We would definitely recommend this house to others, and we'd LOVE to come back and stay here again. In fact, we hope to come back next summer and stay here even longer!
