we stayed in this cottage last week and loved it.

we had breakfast on the porch and wine at sunset, there too.

terrific place, we will be back to la jolla!

My fiance loved how clean it all was, the white towels and sheets were a luxury!

great spot, so close to the ocean.

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just got back from this amazing cottage in La Jolla and it completely exceeded our expectations in every way. The location is ideal. Our kids were able to walk down to the beach (1 block from the front door!) and explore while I made breakfast. The ocean provides hours of entertainment and the beach right at the end of the street was the nicest we saw anywhere in San Diego. We loved Children's Cove for the seals and the great beaches around there. The cottage is a short drive from LegoLand, Balboa Park and the Zoo and Sea World. Lanie has stocked the cottage with absolutely everything you could need from baby supplies (pack n play, high chair and toys) to loads of beach towels and sand toys and everything felt clean and fresh. She was available to us for questions throughout our stay and had great recomendations for local shops. The property is close to great shopping and restuarants (either walking or driving) and we loved making dessert and bringing it down to the beach to let our kids play in the waves at sunset. San Diego is like heaven on earth and this was the perfect place to stay. If I had an unlimited budget and had my pick of 5 star hotels I would choose to stay here again without question for the location alone but the adorable cottage with a breezy beach feel makes this a no brainer. We can't wait to plan our next trip and my kids are already begging to go back to 'our home in San Diego!'

La Jolla Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We enjoyed the view from the picture window and from the front porch where we drank our coffee in the morning and our wine in the evening. The home was clean and furnished with everything we needed. Plus, Lainie was just a phone call away! We highly recommend this house and would definitely stay here again.

ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from our stay in this CHARMING cottage. You couldn't ask for a better LOCATION just steps away from the beach. We woke up every morning to the sounds of the waves crashing with a cup of coffee in hand. Every night, we'd watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. The kids loved being so close to the beautiful Windansea beach, and spent hours playing. I enjoyed my morning runs up and down the coast. We were a quick drive to the Cove, La Jolla Shores and all the restaurants/shops. Everything we needed was in this home with beach towels and boogie boards included. The owner was readily available during our stay and was even kind enough to mail us something we had left behind. I miss this place already and can't wait to go back.

GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation in here at the seaside cottage. The front porch was wonderful in the mornings for coffee and in the evenings for having wine and watching the sunset, if you don't want to take a few steps down to the beach to watch. Wherever our day took us we were always so happy to be back here in the evenings or to spend the day here at the beach. The cottage is clean and well maintained with very comfy beds. Lainie is a very gracious host with great recommendations for restaurants (Sammys Wood fire grill and El Pescodor fish market to name a few) and anything else you might need to know about the area. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back. Thank you Lainie for a wonderful vacation!!
