About Bob Whitney

We bought this property in from the estate of Truel Simpson. Truel was a dressmaker to the 'Rich and Famous'. Truel and his wife lived in the cottage and sold his fashionable dresses from the shop next door for almost 50 years.

Why Bob Whitney chose La Jolla

This property is unique because it is in the 'Heart of La Jolla Shores Village'. When you stay at the cottage your imagination brings you back to when La Jolla was a sleepy little sea side village.

What makes this cottage unique

Park your car in your reserved carport and walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Or just sit on the front porch and watch the world walk by.....

Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I spent a glorious week in this lovely, funky, California, all the way, house. We both were about to cry when it came time to leave. I literally didn't even want to imagine anyone else staying in "our home." The location of this house is amazing. The beach is right down the street and there are numerous fantastic restaurants within one block. We ate almost every meal in this neighborhood and the food was fabulous at every place. In addition, it was so easy to hop up on the freeway and make our way into San Diego to be the tourists that we love to be. We could leave our house and be downtown in fifteen minutes. The main town of La Jolla was also easy to get to and you have your own parking spot right in the back. The house was loaded with all amenities and there wasn't anything we needed that we didn't find there for us. I will forever cherish our time sitting on the front porch watching the surfers and kayakers walk by. I also bought some great art work at a gallery just around the block. One of our best vrbo experiences ever!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words and we are so glad that you enjoyed your home away from home. Truel's Cottage is a special place and we try hard to make all guests feel welcome and comfortable. There are so many great restaurants here so it was good that you could experience some nice dining. We hope you will be able to come back again in the future, as we do offer a friends and family discount to all of our returning guests!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with beautiful decor, clean and very cozy for our family Christmas. The beautiful fireplace was such a nice touch during our evening relaxation mode. We love the location, easy access to the freeway and walking distance to the beach and numerous quaint restaurants. The beach has several firepits which makes for a fun evening roasting marshmellows. There is a store along the way to the beach that sells bundles of firewood. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed and Bob was kind enough to put up a beautiful live Christmas tree. Bob called and even stopped by to make sure all was well. The private covered parking area is a definite plus. Parking is premium in this quaint little village so its nice not having to worry about a place to park. Truel's cottage will definitely be a place of recommendation to our friends and on our list for a return visit when we return to California. Thank you Bob for our wonderful family Christmas!

Very comfy home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a nice long stay and could not have been more comfortable. We felt at home the minute we walked through the door. Well stocked with all the necessities, and such a wonderful location! Easy beach access as well as easy freeway access to all of the local attractions. Bob was so friendly and was always available if we needed him. Staying at Truel's was an experience I will never forget and I hope to be back some day.

PERFECT LAJOLLA SHORES COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three flew from New Hampshire and once we opened the front gate, we knew we had found paradise. The vintage feel and décor exuded warmth and comfort. The interior was exactly as described by the owners and every detail was taken care of from the well stocked and fully equipped kitchen, comfortable and clean furnishings and beach equipment including chairs, towels, sand toys and umbrellas. The attached casita adjacent to the flowery courtyard provided a private retreat for our young adult daughter. She absolutely loved her charming oasis with French doors and tiled bathroom with washer/dryer. Each room had its own TV. My husband loved the outdoor shower and we all enjoyed the front porch to chat with the friendly passersby. A convenient covered parking space is provided as well. LaJolla Shores beach was truly a 5 minute walk and was top notch for swimming, walking, kayaking and had beautiful sunsets that were not to be missed. After a day in the sun we often walked to one of the pleasant restaurants on the street which offered great food, nice outdoor ambience and friendly and attentive staff. We also enjoyed walking along the scenic cliff into LaJolla Village. The bike and kayak tours offered next door are a great way to see both the water and the surrounding LaJolla neighborhoods. The staff at LaJolla Kayaks is courteous, skilled and friendly. The absolutely beautiful weather was only exceeded by the politeness and professionalism of the owners. It was evident that they love this special area and want their guests to have a wonderful relaxing time. Many thanks and we look forward to returning again.

A gem in the middle of it all!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four with two small children) LOVED our recent stay in Truels Cottage. La Jolla Shores is a bustling yet laid back community during the summer months. Truels is literally in the middle of all the action but given how the cottage is set back behind the shrubbery you really feel like you are in a secret hide away. It was fun to sit and watch the world go by while drinking our morning coffee or a late afternoon apero.

Given it's location and being on ground level there is some noise at night or early morning (ie. people talking on back street on way home, trash pick up one day a week)that we heard from the back room but it was nothing that bothered us.

The cottage provides EVERYTHING that you need for a comfortable stay from a fully stocked kitchen of supplies, laundry detergent, soaps, garbage bags, toilet paper etc) to beach supplies like chairs, umbrella, towels, boogie boards and sand toys.

The outside garden area between the two bedrooms is also ideal for sitting out or dining (grill worked perfectly well too!). And having the outside shower is also a bonus!

Bob was a pleasure to work with and was always onsite within minutes if we had any needs.

We love La Jolla and Tuels is a perfect spot to stay if you want to be able to walk to the beach or to some nice restaurants in the evening.

We hope to come back some day!!!

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two friends stayed in this very cozy, clean cottage this week! The description and pictures are accurate and DeeAnn and Bob were very helpful and easy to deal with. We so enjoyed sitting outside every morning in the private patio, walked to the beach, enjoyed several nearby restaurants, explored and just generally relaxed! We all agreed we'd love to stay again! Thanks!
