About Suzanne Harris

I grew up in San Diego but moved to the Rockies over 25 years ago. The beach has always moved my soul. One of my earliest childhood memories is going to Windansea Beach as a little girl with my family. This cottage is a welcome retreat where I rest, relax and rejuvenate from everyday life. Owning this charming home has been one of the best things I have ever done for living life to its fullest and staying connected with family, friends and everything that San Diego has to offer.

Suzanne Harris purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Suzanne Harris chose La Jolla

This location is absolutely perfect in everyway! It is walking distance not only to the most beautiful beach in San Diego but it is just a stroll (less than a minute walk) to restaurants and shops on La Jolla Blvd and Nautilus Street. Pearl Street is less than one mile to the north, where the heart of La Jolla Village awaits you with all it has to offer. Museums, parks, farmers markets, galleries, night life and some of the finest restaurants in San Diego. One mile south of the cottage is the little neighborhood of Bird Rock also filled with sidewalk cafes, coffee houses, bakeries and restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is fully appointed with all the comforts one would expect and then some! We even leave beach towels, bikes, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear and a boogie board for guests to enjoy. Be sure to check out the Zagat restaurant guide, left in the kitchen, to read about personal recommendations for great places to eat all over San Diego.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage is a perfect getaway in a lovely location in southern California. We loved all the amenities of the Cottage from the parking space to kitchen necessities to make it feel like home. We absolutely had a great time and we hope to come back again and stay here! Going back east is going to be tough.

Great accomodations in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was super cosy and comfortable for my husband and I. It was beautifully decorated, clean and very well supplied with everything we needed. The kitchen was well equiped. The personal touches really set this place apart from our normal rental. This cottage made us feel like we were at home. The location is great, few steps from the Beach and a small walk to the village. I recommend this cottage to anyone that appreciated staying in a property that is obviously so very well taken care of by it's owner and her manager.

An excellent place in La Jolla

  • 4 of 5

The location is about 1/2 block to the beach. The cottage is nicely appointed and very comfortable for a couple. There is also sofa bed for guests. I have stayed in the cottage many times and expect to rent it in the future. In the winter it is quiet and feels very private despite the area being chockablock other homes and cottages. Very nice.

Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided not to do the typical tropical honeymoon and opted to stay in my home state of California and make a little trip down the coast. Looking back, we could not be happier with our decision! La Jolla was beautiful and this little place had everything we needed. The location is perfect-- we brought our bikes and rode everywhere. A morning walk down to the beach took no more than 2 minutes. Windansea Cottage was clean, the perfect size for 2 people, and tastefully decorated. We are so happy now that we decided to do a more relaxed honeymoon and would definitely go back and stay there if we ever get the chance!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a weekend getaway at yhe Windansea cottage from Phoenix. With our average temperature here lately being around 110, it was a great relief to get to the pleasant weather of San Diego. We brought our 2 young boys ( almost 3 year old and 3 month old). Cathleen was impressed and said we were brave for bringing them, and after the weekend was over, we agree- it may be a couple years before we attempt it again! The location was awesome. We loved the idea that we could walk to the beach, especially with the boys taking naps, etc. It was nice to go down the hill in the morning, and then go back to the cottage for lunch and naps, and then return to the beach afterwards and not have to deal with parking at a beach in the middle of the day. The cottage was very nice too-very clean and the instant we walked in gave us the feel of a fun beach vacation. We'll definitely be back!

We Loved Our Recent Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect retreat for us from winter's bite! This location is perfectly situated to beach and 'city' activities. The cottage is immaculate and charmingly decorated as the owner advertises. With a beautiful and fully stocked kitchen, we had to force ourselves to go out for meals sometimes. We couldn't have been happier with our choice and hope to return next year.
