Liza and Mike

Liza Szabo purchased this townhome in 1996

Why Liza Szabo chose La Jolla

La Jolla was where we both wanted to live our whole lives. I had post cards in my office in

colorado when I was 22, promising that one day I would live there. When first married we saved

up enough money to buy a home by our most loved beach, Wind N Sea also voted top ten beaches in

the world and walk to it by foot along with the village atmosphere of dining, shops, parks, scenic trails and perfect weather. We now can return again and again to our property while still

enjoying our other beach home, hawaii or yosemite. Our dream come true to have beach, moutains and tropical areas. We hope to retire in the village, wind n sea beach home and in the meantime

get joy out of sharing it with other vacationers. come see the beauty of walking to all at the JEWEL our La Jolla Wind n Sea Beach home and cottage.

What makes this townhome unique

Everthing you can can want on vacation and never need a car. Walk to Top Ten beaches in the world wind n Sea, as well as shops

and restaurants, spa and gym 11 houses away, but be in a quite tropical neighborhood with a yard

where they are hard to come by. Walk 3 houses to La Jolla scenic trail and park, the beach 1500 feet from our door is enjoyable walkable. Or head north 10 minutes walk to the downtown entertainment of fine restaurants, art galleries and the world famous cove. The olympic community is only 5 houses away and our year round temperature average is 66 to 72 degrees, warming up in summer to the mid 70s. maybe peaking at low 80's. Enjoy all that the JEWEL of La Jolla has to offer being in the heart of the village at our Wind N Sea Beach house and Optional

cottage next door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were asked to share our experience and review. WE stayed May 6. We found the location superb as we could walk to shops in just houses in beach barber tract and only 10 minutes to downtown by foot, 1/2 mile. The beach is awesome and we are on the quite side of the block of Bonair, 3 houses from the park and scenic trail. We were able to walk either direction to downtown La Jolla and farmers market north or bird rock dining and shopping going south.We are astounded a renter said the trail doesnt go through La jolla as its several miles long and

absolutely enjoyable and right by the house. To have that and only have to go 23 houses or 1500 feet to the best part of the top ten beach, at the world famous shake location and world famous surf point, wind n sea and bird rock is totally contradictory to a tenant saying it was too far and not there and you can't walk it. It has thick white lush sand but on low tide the tide pools are rocky but not that you can't walk all the way downtown. We have been to this property three times from the midwest and found the location perfect as we didn't have excess beach noise, actually had a real yard and parking on the property, where if you go to first 10 properties it is so congested and noisy , no yards and parking that you don't want to be closer but in a nice close section, called the beach barber tract. My mom had a house two blocks over and its the best part of La Jolla, as you can walk everywhere. My thumbs up to this property and the ease of worker with the owners. Surf your brains out too, any surfer knows this is the number one location for the beach and for the only white sand in san diego!!, read about it online. no one feels this area isn't the gem and quick walk to all, not just the the hot water heater is great, instant not water and the dishwasher is nicer than other rentals, its stainless tell bausch brand.

Location is Great, House is in poor condition

  • 1 of 5
Pros: The location was great, backyard was nice.

Cons: The house itself. The 2nd bathtub/shower in a free standing tub. There were two shower curtains on two sides to keep the shower water in. But gaps on two ends. Water spills out on the floor it gets flooded, no matter how hard we tried to keep it from going outside. We had to wipe off the floor each time. The owner said, that's what we have to do ! Never seen poor such shower arrangement.

The floors were not clean at check in. We had to mop the floors ourselves.

The room ACs are ineffective and loud. It was warm in the room. It was hard to sleep. But I understand many houses don't have AC in La Jolla and we are used to temperature controlled rooms.

Neighbor talked to each of us at separate times when we went out and told us about the ongoing fight between the owner and neighbor about the the vacation rental business and brought in petty annoyance in our vacation.

There were ants and bugs in the house. We sprayed the insect killer sprays provided in the house often.

I would not go back to this house.

My Family stayed here Aug and many summers: this property and many properties in the Beach Barber Tract. My brother and sister have provided real estate for years beginning in the 1970s. My Mom had a house on Westbourne so we grew up here and now all the streets.
We tried properties on Nautilus. Gravilla, Westbourne again, and Sea Lane. None had as easy access to each and every thing to do and the home had the most character, charm and largest yard and patio, as well as an optional guest house that none of the others had.
We were asked to review our stay as the owners needed to get more than one point of view so we took time to look at the reviews. The pattern we saw was the complaints really had nothing to do with how wonderful this place and is and how truly cool the house is compared to other streets, layouts for yards and outdoor patio and the truth of the historic flavor and refurbished quality of the house. The La Jolla light once owned this before the previous owners and another gentlemen in the many years who was a publisher at the paper. He converted the R2 garage back then in 1956 permitted to rent to guests coming in for the La Jolla playhouse. Many owners close by were asked to make their granny flats available for guests and convert them and did so simply with the city , in times before know huge multiple units are erected, this home has the original simply historic look and quality of low profile but close to and walk to beach and all with quiet still available although it is the village and will have foot and car traffic due to everything being in walking distance, no car needed. The owners informed me the cottage had a fire in Y2K and was being questioned as a guest house but it is truly a remodeled and permits pulled in 2000 with the property tax and city. I was asked by the owners as a realtor and guest here five times to assure people that the extra unit can be at the very least an extra bedroom but more since it has a kitchen, courtyard, bathroom with tub and shower, TV, internet access, where the parents or grandparents can get away from the sometimes family reunions that folks rent on vacation and no peace for everyone in one house. With the house it can be a fourth bedroom or a guest spot.
The owners are in the process of bringing it to another level of quality with the city by adding a zen garden that is being expanded on now and more privacy then even before with plants and a new adobe wall slated for increased privacy.

Just Ok

  • 2 of 5
We were here to attend a 14U baseball tournament. First, check in is at 3 and we were still sitting in the backyard at 4:30pm waiting for the cleaners to finish. House could use some bug spray. We found several centipedes in 2 of the rooms. Spiderwebs throughout. Ants all over - even where no food was around. Must have some type of rodent issue in the house as there were mouse traps on the side of the refrigerator although we never saw one. The first night we were here the neighbor called the police because our dog chased their cat from our yard to theirs and the kids ran to get the dog. Not sure why he couldn't have just walked out and had a conversation with us. Still don't even understand what the issue was. He did mention previous issues with the owner of this house. Also, it should be disclosed that there is no playing allowed in the street. The kids were out front and were told to stop. One night it was after 8pm so I could understand that. But the other nights it was not. We were told there is a park close by. So that is another option. The back yard and patio was nice to sit and relax until we noticed the rats running from the roof tops across the power lines RIGHT above us (yes, they were definitely rats). Note that if you plan to use the gas grill you will need to buy propane as the tank was empty. And if you plan to run the dishwasher make sure you grab some dish soap. This house is not live in ready.

So if none of the above is an issue for you then this is a great place to stay. Great location. I don't recommend it for families with active kids. The neighborhood is quiet and doesn't tolerate outdoor activity.

Owner's Response: House and neighborhood are very family friendly but guest and children were extremely loud and disturbing the piece of the lovely neighborhood. The Beach Barber tract Village this beach house is at is two blocks from La Jolla high school-which is extremely child friendly and cautious of their safety. Property is 3 houses from a family park and scenic trail. With the high school 5 houses east , and the middle school and elementary right next to the high and all the kids come down our street to to beaches, as we are 1500 feet from the main entrance.
They cross the street and park cars in off season around the neighborhood, have football games and 5 houses to COOGAN family center that has the Olympic size pool for tournaments and local public use. We are 11 houses from shops and restaurants and in the village of wind n sea beach. My neighbor reported to me that their boys were screaming in the street all day every day and she could not rest and she has rented our vacation home with her kids and families. Our second neighbor called the police because of the ongoing noise and was previous police officer. I was called and complained to also and never before had we a child noise complaint being in the school zone. I kindly emailed to let her know I had a complaint and that playing ball on Bonair street was not allowed due to busy cars and the safety watch. We have a good size yard and a football field open one block over and scenic trails and the beach. The tenant was upset and said her husband was a police man and it was not against the law and she was preparing a scathing review to my heartbreak. We are in a residential neighborhood with homeowners who are very tolerant of renters. If there was noise complaint the parents should be tolerant of others needs for quiet enjoyment. It is not an argument for us just a courtesy of having neighbors you live with all year and a party of 11 is just to loud if 9 are kids in the street. I personally stay at this home and had stayed two weeks earlier. Maids clean from 10 to 5, and check in is 3 to 5 with cleaning complete at 5 although you can arrive earlier as a courtesty. The tenant would not accept my apologies for needing to ask her to keep kids from the streets. Neighbors first asked if they could keep it down as even with windows closed she was getting skateboards and excess noise. It is a great area for kids, just not in the street. We do have neighbors like any neighborhood that are tolerant of renters.

Wonderful La Jolla Home!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home was a wonderful treat! The home has such a beautiful southwestern, as well as a tropical vacation feel to it. The house and grounds were clean and uncluttered, with roomy bedrooms, lots of windows to let the California sunshine in and a kitchen which was stocked with everything we needed to cook a few meals at home, as well as abundant linens and towels, and other amenities.

We particularly enjoyed the back patio, deck and roomy backyard, especially with all the gorgeous plants and trees, not to mention grill, large patio table, and comfy lounging furniture. We saw many hummingbirds flying about, also apparently enjoying the landscape.

The beach and many shops and restaurants were less than a 10 minute walk away, with other shops and restaurants in downtown La Jolla just a little beyond that. We rarely had to travel by car; everything we needed was a much enjoyed brief walk down the street. One evening, we watched the sunset at the ocean horizon from the front entrance of the home. That was beautiful!

We hope to visit again someday! Thank you for everything, Liza!

Great family reunion at a great place

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this home for a family reunion and we all loved it! The location is great, just a couple of blocks from the beach that has breath taking views. The home and cottage had everything we needed, we cooked there most of the meals. The weber grill was very popular! We spent hours out on the patio talking and playing with the kids. We made memories in this house and would recommend it for any family event!

La Jolla Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for us to spend our daughters spring break.We loved the fenced backyard for our dogs. The outdoor patio with the fireplace and couch was lovely. It was so quiet and peaceful sitting outside. We had perfect weather while we were there. The house had everything we needed. I cooked dinner most nights because we didn't want to leave our dogs alone so I can't speak about many of the local restaurants but the house was close to many and also close to downtown La Jolla. We did do take out one night from the Thai restaurant and it was very good.The location was great because we could get everywhere we wanted to go in a short car ride. I ran and walked our dogs everyday and there were plenty of nice areas to do that without having to be on busy roads. It was also a short walk down to Wind n Sea beach. The house was clean which is always a concern for me. It also had a long driveway for parking which was nice. I would absolutely rent this house again.
