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

Fabulous - better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the last few days of our road trip around California and only wish we could have stayed longer. We are 2 families from the UK travelling with 4 teenage girls and found the house to be immaculate, spacious and with everything you could possibly want - boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas etc etc. Lynne was a delight to deal with and personally showed us around the house on our arrival. It was by far the best place we stayed during our 3 weeks in California. The back patio was beautifully lit by fairy lights at night and it was lovely dining out there. The views from the lounge and balcony were fabulous and it was great to go to bed at night listening to the crashing waves. As another reviewer said, the photos do not really do it justice. If we lived in the States we would return often and highly recommend this property to all.

The Perfect Family Vacation - Visiting San Diego for Wedding from CHICAGO!

  • 5 of 5
We were visiting San Diego for my brothers wedding. We had a lot of people coming from all over the United States, especially a large group of us from Chicago. We figured we would come early, enjoy the weather in San Diego and get situated before the 375 person wedding we had ahead of us. We came across this place on VRBO, and it was probably the best thing we could have done! Lynne, the propety owner, is a gem! She was always available to help us if we had any questions. She was very patient and accomodating! I am so grateful that we were able to work with Lynne and not a random property manager. Now that I have mentioned how wonderful Lynne is, let me get started on the HOUSE!!! We had 4 couples that stayed in this house, while all the others stayed in hotels... majority of the time they were at this beach house enjoying the view and people watching. The house is adorable, has a garage, washer and dryer, kitchen, everything you need to feel at home! The view of the images on this sight do no justice, it is absolutely breathtaking! The house is spotless, beds are comfortable and the patio was very nice to sit out and have breakfast/lunch and dinner. We plan on coming to visit San Diego next year because my brother and his wife are expecting and we hope that this place is available again, to rent. You will have no regrets renting this beautiful beach house! Thank you, Lynne!

A Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5
There are many things that make this a great rental: (1) Location - across the street from the beach; within walking distance of surf/kayak shops; close to Birch Aquarium; etc. (2) Patio - we loved the beautiful wisteria-covered patio; it was the perfect place to sit, read, enjoy, and grill. (3) Views - the view from the upstairs living room is fantastic. (4) Owner - Lynne is absolutely the BEST. She works hard to make sure her property is well-maintained and that her renters are happy. Her care and concern for her renters is genuine. I would highly recommend this La Jolla Shores rental.

You will NOT be disappointed.

Lynne is fantastic. The views of Scripps Pier and LaJolla Beach are better than the pictures. The back patio is pure heaven. Listen to the waves crash and smell the cool salt air all night. Hope to see you again next year!

Wedding Trip and perfect for surfers!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here. Our daughter, the bride to be was married at the Scripps Martin Johnson House only .5 miles from house. The view of the surf from the upstairs living room is FANTASTIC. The house is 4 bedroom plus 3 full baths with a formal dining room plus a kitchen and table for 6 in the kitchen. Surfers love this spot! We had fun hosting folks who flew in for the wedding. Lynne, the very friendly owner, met us and showed us around upon our arrival. Great place with a breathtaking view and location. Caroline's Cafe is walking distance for breakfast and lunch.

Notes:
On Avenida de la Playa, less than a mile south of the house, there are businesses that rent all beach/water sporting equipment and have tours available. 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.
