Although you'll want to enjoy the warm weather BBQing and relaxing on the sunny deck outside and taking in the gardens, the inside of the cottage is tastefully decorated with modern day luxuries: 50' Plasma HDTV in living room, 32' LCD in master bedroom, cable, Wi-Fi internet, Showtime, and DVD. The recently remodeled kitchen is fully stocked with all the quality appliances and utensils a gourmet chef would expect. The home is bathed in sunshine with skylights in four of the rooms.

The comfortable beds are furnished with 400 thread count linens and down pillows/duvets. The master bedroom has a king size bed with views out French windows to the back garden and small waterfall, and the second bedroom has a queen size bed.

About Bruce Craig

I've owned the La Jolla Garden Cottage since 1998 and I've enjoyed opening it up to those who are looking for a peaceful and beautiful retreat. I am an avid traveler, so I know the importance of a destination being as perfect as possible upon arrival, and you can expect that to be the case when you come to the La Jolla Garden Cottage.

My goal is to exceed your expectations and make the entire booking process easy. That includes professional service such as prompt communication, a timely rental agreement, confirmation of deposit checks, easy access to the property, a complete guest guide, and recommendations for activities and restaurants that suit your specific needs and interests. I'm here to help make your vacation hassle-free.

Bruce Craig purchased this house in 1998

Why Bruce Craig chose La Jolla

The cottage won me over with it's rich history and details like coved ceilings, polished wood floors and crown molding. You could tell it had been loved over the years and I've tried to continue the tradition with many improvements of my own. And, of course, it's proximity to La Jolla's best beaches and the Village made the decision that much easier.

Great location for La Jolla

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was great for our needs in La Jolla. Great location to the beach and walking to restaurants, tennis and such. The only drawback was lack of AC, but with windows open, we were fine. The house was well stocked and we were very comfortable during our week there. We will be back for sure!

Very relaxing, wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and also escaping a brutal, hard winter in northern Michigan. We had such a great time in this house on Arenas Street. Everywhere you looked in the house there was a color or design that was very appealing. We really enjoyed the beautiful kitchen and the fold-able open wall of windows out to the sunny deck. There was a soft flowing waterfall in the backyard that made sitting out on the deck very relaxing. We took many walks to the three beaches from the house and also walked into La Jolla everyday for breakfast or lunch. The sky lights throughout the house provided much needed sunlight for us. We would love to go back at some point, perhaps next winter.

Wonderful, relaxing stay in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at many vacation rentals, but until now none have inspired us to write a review. This is a great place (and we are fussy)! The description is completely accurate: a charming, well appointed garden cottage. Advertised for a couple, I was concerned that it would be tight for our family of four which includes two teen age girls. We found the common rooms to be open, spacious and pleasant thanks to thoughtful remodeling, well placed skylights, comfortable furniture and a kitchen window that slides open to the back porch. Everything was spotlessly clean. Everything worked from WI-FI to the gas stove. The two patios were like comfortable outdoor rooms in a beautiful setting. If you come, I am sure you will appreciate the master bedroom which has a terrific king bed and large French windows looking out to the garden. The morning sun pouring through those windows is a wonderful start to any day.

And about the day . . . the location is perfect. We came for the beach and were not disappointed. Surfing and boogie boarding, tide pools, sea lions and pelicans were all an easy walk away. Although we had a car, everything is so convenient, we chose to walked to the beach and downtown La Jolla shopping areas, the Sunday market (don't miss it!), a pizza place, church and tennis courts at the high school up the street. The bus is also easy to use. The drive to Torrey Pines for a hike and golfing is quick--as was access to other sites in San Diego.
Sure, it would have been nice to have a better bed(s) for my teens, but they didn't complain because everything else was so great! The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and preparing us for the visit.

Owner's Response: I’m glad you had such a nice stay at the cottage Madeline. We agree that the guest bed could probably benefit from an update, so I’m happy to say that we ran out and purchased a brand new, luxurious mattress for that room as well. We appreciate feedback from our guests so that we can make stays here the very best. Bruce

Dieses Haus ist wirklich perfekt! Wir waren im August 2013 mit 2 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern (Teenagern) an diesem wunderschönen Ort. Das Haus ist perfekt eingerichtet, der Garten mit sehr viel Liebe und Kreativität angelegt. Zum Strand sind es nur wenige Minuten, ebenso zum Einkaufen. Wir haben diese traumhafte Location sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Hier fühlt man sich richtig wohl - einfach genial !

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review Chris and I'm glad you had a good visit. For English readers, I've copy and pasted verbatim from Google Translator: This home is truly perfect! We were in August 2013 with 2 adults and 2 children (teenagers) at this beautiful place. The house is perfectly decorated, the garden created with much love and creativity. There are only a few minutes to the beach, and for shopping. We enjoyed this fantastic location and very would come back any time. Here one feels really good - just awesome!

Best One Yet!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at various VRBO homes over the years and this one is by far the best one yet! We feel very fortunate to have found this charming cottage. Upon arrival, we were immediately enamored by the colorful lush surroundings. Hibiscus, hydrangea, birds of paradise, and bougainvillea abound among many other beautiful plants. Over the week we spent a lot of time sipping wine on the patio, barbecuing, and eating our meals at the outdoor table under the twinkling lights of the umbrella. It is obvious Bruce takes great pride in his garden and in his home as well. Inside, everything was so impressive from the gorgeous newly remodeled kitchen to the beautiful original art work. The entire house was quite immaculate which made for quite a comfortable stay.One of our most favorite things to do was open the huge garden/kitchen window, stream music from the living room tv to the kitchen speakers, and sit on the patio while sipping wine under the soft sparkly lights woven through the bougainvillea. Heaven on earth! Bruce is a very thoughtful host who left us a binder filled with all the information we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.He
even took the time to help us with lots of spot-on recommendations. Of course, the city of La Jolla has so much to offer and the cottage is perfectly located. Everything (restaurants, shopping, tennis,
beaches...) is either within walking distance or five minutes away by car. We couldn't have asked for more and would certainly love to be able to return.
