Overview

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

Hi Lynne,



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.

Best Regards,

Calvin

AMAZING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and could not have asked for a better location! We enjoyed every part of this incredible home. Great views of the beach from the upstairs family room, can't be beat. The beautiful patio in back is great and spacious for grilling and entertaining. This house is exactly what you are looking for if you want beautiful views, relaxing living and great access to La Jolla Cove. We truly consider this house "our home away from home". Lynne is so gracious and always goes the extra mile to make sure that her guests feel like "family". You won't forget this place!

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit and I'm already planning our fourth. Nowhere else we'd rather be! Close to anything you want to do and sunsets are breathtaking. Our grandchildren call Lynne's home "their beach house". Best location ever. Love it.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my wife and I stayed for one month in this great La Jolla vacation home. Lynne has always been a very helpful, attentive, and friendly host. I think the location is the best in La Jolla. We enjoy walks on the beach and playing scrabble behind the Scripps Pier or at a picnic table on the beach. If you enjoy golf, Torrey Pines is only a few miles away. I would also recommend The Vineyard and Barona Creek. We definitely plan to return.

Fabulous stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the Beach House early January, 2015...from the moment we walked in, we were excited and delighted! The location is just terrific...so close to the beach, with so many good dining options-many within walking distance, beautiful sunsets...and this home has such easy parking!!! However the best part is the home itself...kitchen facilities are more than expected...all bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent....and then there is the 2nd story den where we spent so much time just relaxing and enjoying the ocean view...breathtaking...highly recommend this home!!!!

Wonderful! Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach House March 7-15, 2015, for our destination wedding in La Jolla. It was a wonderful experience and it could not have been any better. We hosted family and friends at the house for a Welcome Dinner and day after brunch and there was plenty of space for all. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of platters and serving utensils. We spent days at the beach and walked along the shore into the La Jolla Shores neighborhood where there are many restaurants and shops. We used the boogie boards and had a total blast in the water. The weather was unusually warm so we took full advantage of it. Lynne was a great host - she met us at the house upon arrival and showed us around. It felt like home! The patio is relaxing and the front deck is awesome for watching the sunset. That view cannot be beat! We will definitely be back with our family again! We absolutely fell in love with La Jolla and this house is just perfect.

Comfortable beach home, across the street from some of the best surfing, diving, kayaking, beachwalks and tidepools anywhere. Walk about 1/2 mile to restaurants, shops, market and Kellogg park with playgrounds on the beach. A short drive (2 miles) to La Jolla Village where you can find everything the big city has to offer but in a quaint setting by the sea. The wonderful Birch Aquarium at Scripps is 1/2 mile (2 minutes) from the house and Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park with all of its museums are less than 15 minutes away. Legoland is 18 miles north and in the same neighborhood is a large Designer Outlet Shopping Mall. Downtown San Diego is just 12 miles away. You can drive an hour and a half and find yourself in mountains or the desert. You can drive or take the San Diego Trolley to Mexico in less than an hour.

The street also has three very good restaurants. Kellogg Park (in this area) has a large grass park on the same level as the beach with a children's playground. At the Scripps Institution of Oceanography end of La Jolla Shores at low tide, there are tide pools on the other side of the Scripps Pier. From Kellogg Park to Scripps, the La Jolla Shores beach is about one mile of surf breaks, snorkeling, kayaking, diving, swimming and boogie boarding. There are flags keeping swimmers and surfers apart for safety. There are lifeguards are some of the beach, clearly where there are life guard towers.
