We fell in love with Steve's cottage on first sight, and the feeling lingers even now that we're back home. We stayed for a month. It was the perfect getaway, with all the amenities we could have asked for. The patio was beautiful and secluded, and had a grill where we cooked most of our dinners. The kitchen was efficient and came stocked with dishes, pans, silverware, utensils, a blender, and more. There was a nice washer/dryer out in back. But more than the amenities was the overall comfort and cozy mood of the place, which made us feel at home as soon as we walked in.
We walked to the beach almost every day, tried various restaurants, took drives to Balboa Park, the Birch Aquarium, the Torrey Pines State Reserve, and more. Lots to see and do in the area, including an excellent shopping mall called University Towne Center which you can get to by bus if you don't feel like driving.
Steve was the perfect host -- there when we needed him, not when we didn't. We left feeling that we must return soon, and in fact are moving to La Jolla permanently in a few months.
Highly recommend this lovely spot. You won't want to leave!
My wife and I spent a week here and couldn't be happier with our choice, I lived in San Diego for 25 years and still know the area well, so I can say with confidence that if you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable place with all the conveniences as well as the best scenery and options for food and entertainment this is it. We left the car parked at home a lot of the time and just walked into town for everything we were looking for including yoga, a great bookstore, library, and mahi mahi... and of course the best stretch of coastline in Southern California. We enjoyed making meals at home as well. The cottage is kept in great condition and the bed is very comfortable. Steve was easy to work with and friendly. We didn't have any problems with the place at all and you can tell that they really care about maintaining it. We will be back too!
This apartment was perfect for me when I stayed for a week recently for a personal retreat. The owner was a perfect host who helped me when I needed something but left me to enjoy my privacy. The location is terrific for access to many restaurants, markets and most importantly the beautiful beach area where a 5 minute walk lets you see the Children's pool where the seals take a suntan. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of LaJolla while having a private and comfortable place to stay with all of the amenities of a home. Thanks Steve!
My wife and I make a yearly trip to the San Diego area in Jan/Feb to escape the cold and snow of home. In the past we've enjoyed excursions to La Jolla for dinner, shopping, and the Farmer's Market but have never stayed in the city. Our recent trip included celebrating Valentine's Day. This beautiful and comfortable cottage more than exceeded our expectations.
We talked each day about how much we enjoyed staying at this cottage as opposed to any of the number of hotels we've previously stayed at in the area. First of all, the cottage is really attractive and very comfortable. It sits behind the owner's home and is very quiet. In fact, the entire neighborhood is quiet. The king bed was comfortable and we slept well. The kitchen had all you'd need to prepare some meals. We enjoyed a couple of late nights on the sofa watching Netflix movies.
The owners are great. We talked briefly at check-in, acquainted ourselves, and asked a few questions. I highly recommend a stay here but, in saying so, realize that such positive comments might just make it more difficult for us to book a return trip.
Just spent one week in this wonderful cottage and LOVED it! The place is IMMACULATE and has every amenity you would want. The neighborhood is lovely and close to everything...beaches, restaurants, grocery store, drug store, etc. While being close to everything, you have privacy, private parking, private outdoor space, peace and quiet and much much more. You never know what you are going to get when you can only see a few pictures but this place was BEYOND ALL EXPECTATIONS! Go there...you won't be disappointed. We can't wait to return!
My husband and I just returned from a stay at this wonderful cottage - what a find. Every amenity has been considered - it is cozy and very comfortable. The cottage is nicely decorated, and includes art painted by the owner and other local artists. It is spotlessly clean - everything looks freshly done. My husband and I are now considering dumping our uncomfortable couch, looking for something that lives up to the one in the cottage, where we spent relaxing hours sitting and reading. The king-size bed was wonderful, and the fans and breeze were nice and cool in the day and evenings. The private courtyard was also lovely, complete with an amazing BBQ grill.
The location couldn't be more convenient - a few minutes from the beach, great restaurants and the town center. The La Jolla farmer's market on Sundays is just two blocks away - perfect for bringing home lots of yummy things for cooking (wearing, or decorating!). We walked everywhere, infrequently using our rental car. Staying here was a highlight of our trip to this beautiful town.
