Guestbook comments from the owner

The rental was conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and fabulous art galleries. It is also close to Torrey Pines where my husband and son played golf. The condo was very neat, clean and fully equipped with whatever we needed. Terrie was delightful and addressed an air conditioning problem immediately. I would definitely recommend this condo to my friends. It was nice having a place to park our car.

We had a wonderful month in this lovely apartment in La Jolla. The size was perfect for us. Our adult son spent three of the weeks with us and his schedule is almost opposite of ours. The two bedrooms are at either end of the apartment so he didn't bother us staying up late and night and we didn't bother him getting up early in the morning.

Family dinners were fun because the kitchen is the right size for two or more people to work together.

My husband and I enjoyed walking in the neighborhood and seeing the beautiful houses and gardens. The beach is so close it was very pleasant walk. There are many very nice restaurants within minutes on the times when you don't feel like cooking.

Just a quick review that does not do this spot justice. The owners have thought of many nice details and seem to take pride in their VRBO. Terry was very helpful and met us at the gate and showed us how everything worked. There is quite a lot of hustle and bustle on Labor Day weekend and parking is a nightmare in La Jolla Shores. One parked in the new garage, you might want to explore by foot. The access to restaurants is a block away and most all of them are upscale and excellent. We were focused on snorkeling in the bay and walked down to the beach. The owners do provide perks like beach chairs and boogie boards. The walk in about 5 blocks so we tried to not load up the wagon and go lighter but we did see that this is an option. The condo is upstairs and quite cozy and comfortable. It is pretty quiet also which is surprising since you are surrounded by tons of locals and tourists. Terry gave us an extra night since she found out we were arriving the day before so we felt very lucky. Our mission was business and pleasure and we were able to drive up to northern San Diego with easy access to the freeway and airport. Please invite us back!

Perfect Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in La Jolla this year. The condo was clean and had every ammenity that we could want in a condo and for the beach. The location is great! It is right next to shopping and restaurants and an easy 3-5 minute walk to the beach.

Best VRBO we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

This place is super clean, and I am a clean freak. I usually dislike VRBO's for that exact reason, but I really could not find anything wrong with this condo. The owners were extremely accommodating and genuinely cared about the comfort of your stay. We had rented two cribs for our children and Terri not only arranged to meet the delivery, she set the cribs up for us and had them in the bedrooms ready to go!! It is in an excellent location and is walking distance to a wonderful park right on the ocean front, which was great with our 2 1/2 year old. The only thing I would recommend is that they get black out blinds for the bedroom windows. We have two children who had a difficult time sleeping once the sun was rising, plus the street lights keep the rooms quite bright. It is also a little noisy due to it's prime location and the weekly street sweeping, but we wore ear plugs and it didn't bother us much. We also travel with a noise machine for the children, without it I'm afraid they would have woken up. Nothing the owners could really control though, and again I think that you sacrifice quiet for such a desirable location. All in all, I would stay there again and have recommended it to our friends!! Great job Terri, you really have a gem of a vacation property!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your glowing review! I'm so glad the place worked well for you. We enjoyed having your cute little family and hope you join us again sometime. The faux wood blinds in one bedroom & the room-darkening shades in the other darkened the rooms more than in the past, but perhaps we can figure out an even better option for the future. Thanks for the suggestion. Gratefully, Terrie Woods

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at this condo for our annual La Jolla Shores beach getaway a few years now and love it just as much each time. The location is perfect - just a few blocks to the beach and fantastic restaurants and adventure rentals right outside the door. We park our car and pretty much leave it there until we are ready to go home. The owners are so thoughtful about making sure the place is equipped with everything you need to make your visit comfortable. It's the little touches that make this place so special. We happened to arrive on one of the hottest days of the year and they had the air conditioning on for us so that it would be cool when we unloaded. And the new wagon they have to transport your stuff to the beach was fantastic. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this clean 2-bedroom apartment. It was a 4-min walk to La Jolla Shores beach and Kellogg Park, and along the way we could rent surfboards (we like Surf Diva). Our 14-yr-old daughter was learning to surf, and La Jolla Shores is one of the best beginner surf spots on the West Coast. The unit came equipped with most of what we needed for a great beach vacation: boogie boards, chairs, sand and a wagon to transport everything. The toiletries and all the plush beach towels were nice touches. We were able to cook some meals in the well-supplied kitchen or go out to eat at one of the great restaurants a block or two away. Highly recommended.
