La Jolla House Rental Photos and Description
2-story home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Our home is very comfortable for people who enjoy the beach. There is a shower in the backyard for showering off after swimming, surfing, diving, or just playing in the sand. There are boogie-boards and sand toys for your use, or beach chairs, if you prefer. It is steps from the stairway to the beach at the parking lot of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD.
A pleasant walk down the beach or along the street about one-half mile south brings you to Kellogg Park and playgrounds. Just beyond are restaurants; shops; surf boards, diving equipment, bike and kayak rentals. A short walk the other way, just beyond the Scripps Pier, you will enjoy tide pools at low tide. The Birch Aquarium at Scripps is 1/2 mile away. La Jolla Village is two miles away and has everything the big city has, but in a quaint setting by the sea. Balboa Park, with the San Diego Zoo and many different museums, is just a 15 minute drive. Sea World to the south, about 10 miles and Legoland to the north, about 18 miles are easy to get to, just off I-5. The beautiful Torrey Pines Golf Course is 3.5 miles away. The UTC Shopping Mall has everything and is a 10 minute drive. The La Jolla Playhouse has three theaters and performs live plays all year long, it is a 5 minute drive.
Our home has a two-car garage and parking for four more cars in the driveway.
It is a fun house to enjoy!

About Lynne Robbins
I am a grandmother, actually a great-grandmother. I tried renting our home through a realtor but my son and I decided to try it by ourselves when the listing expired. We are both enjoying the experience very much, tourists are very nice people.
Lynne Robbins purchased this house in 1974
Why Lynne Robbins chose La Jolla
This property was our home and we had to move into a condominium because my husband had experienced physical limitations forcing our move to keep him safe, five years before he died. We had really enjoyed this house along with our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
What makes this house unique
The house is just about 200 steps away from the stairway to La Jolla Shores beach. It is one of the best surfing, body-surfing, boogie-boarding, diving, tide-pooling, beach-walking, sand-playing beaches in the world. A short walk down the beach, there are playgrounds with picnicking on the beach or grass. We enjoyed watching many magnificent sunsets sitting in the living room of our home.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I was writing a review for you and it turns out I needed a traveler's log account or something. I thought it would be a waste to leave this left unseen so I'm posting this to you and you can choose to post it somehow or not.
Review: The beach house was amazing!
All details are as described on the information section. My friends were impressed with the place and were asking me for the contact info so they can book the place in the future. The house was very cozy even when it was two stories high. There are three restrooms; the upstairs restroom was the best. There were, if I can recall correctly, four bedrooms. There are couches, sheets, pillows, and sleeping bags if needed.
Deposit was fully refunded and actually sent back to me quickly. Lynne provided excellent guest services and made us feel at home. She was there when we arrived to show us around and answered my calls if I had questions. She also sent me a nice card which made me want to write this review.
Some things to note:
- The entrance to the beach is really close by like only a few minutes. However, it leads to the surfer side. You have to walk away from the pier to reach the bonfire pits, kayak rentals, lifeguard towers, and the park.
- Lynne provides you with a book of shops and directions to them which was very useful since we have never been in the area a lot.
- It will be very cold from 3am-7am and very hot, especially upstairs, during the afternoon.
