We absolutely loved staying at this spacious and cozy place. We were there with one other couple but could have easily fit more people very comfortably!
This home is located within a few block walking distance to all the wonderful shops and restaurants LaJolla has to offer. I loved all the variety and quality of all the non-chain shops and restaurants!
The guys came with golf on their mind and Torrey Pines Golf Course was within a 15-20 minute easy drive. We were also within a few blocks of the ocean and the Modern Art Museum.
The home had almost everything we needed during our entire stay. We used the fireplace off the patio nightly and it warmed the entire room in only a few minutes. We were there in March and the temps really drop in the evening so plan for that when you pack!
The kitchen has everything a person could need to prepare a meal. We grilled salmon one evening on the outdoor grill which worked perfectly (once we called to find out where the gas valve was). There are some spices and oils but you might want to plan ahead and be sure you get what you need for your particular meal when you go by the grocery store. There was plenty of cookware, dishes, glassware, and utensils. There is a really neat Margarita blender (and recipe) on the counter which I now wish we would have tried, a large sized coffee maker, and a built-in microwave above the oven....just to name a couple of small appliances.
It was nice to have the full sized washer and dryer upstairs in the hall....just be sure to pick up your laundry detergent on your grocery trip.
If we go back to that area, I already know where we'll stay....this house is it!
Most importantly, Southern California Vacation Rentals did a SUPER job from the time we signed the lease through the departure. They were there for any and all questions we had and even made a special trip out to show us how to light the fireplace. The sweet girl even came out prepared to vacuum it out because my husband had told her he thought that was why we couldn't light it. We got a real chuckle when she lit the fireplace in about one second and told me what my husband said....too funny! Anyways, that is the perfect example of how helpful and friendly this company was! And, she had the best and biggest smile on her face and made us feel as if we truly were her priority even though phone instructions would have sufficed! I wish I could remember her name....A big "thanks" to her...those personal touches are appreciated!
