We enjoyed our stay tremendously. After two months here we remembered what we missed, La Jolla and all the friendly folks and close proximity to restaurants, etc. You both were great, helpful and an occasional treat was well taken!
Our family of four spent a great week at the property. The location was outstanding as it was an easy walk to various restaurants/grocery/stores and a 10 minute walk to the beach. The property was very clean and our hosts could not have been more gracious in helping us with miscellaneous requests that came up during the week. The kitchen was small but more than adequate. We were concerned about the lack of off-street parking but did not find it to be an issue. The apartment is in a relatively dense neighborhood but it was quiet at night and only once were we woken up by a car. The rate was very fair for the location/amenities offered and we would recommend it. Thanks to Michael and Lisa for making our trip one we will always remember.
This place is fantastic. I expected it to be nice based on the reviews but it was even better than expected. It had everything we needed for my husband and 2 kids to be comfortable. It is perfectly located near restaurants, shops and the beach. We took the bus to Sea World and downtown to the Maritime Museum - easy! The house is stocked with everything you would need and Lisa and Michael are very gracious hosts. We had a fabulous time and the beaches are lovely. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Our family of four (mom, dad, 11-yr old girl, 15-yr old boy) just spent a terrific week staying at this apartment, which is situated right in the heart of La Jolla Village. This second floor apartment was spotless and very well appointed. We were honestly lacking nothing to make our stay comfortable. Within walking distance of restaurants, a good grocery store, the beach and other amenities, we really enjoyed going native for the week. The Farmers Market, held every Sunday, is ONE block away!
A real bonus was the great patio that we enjoyed every morning and then every evening when we returned from our day of exploring.
Although these points didn't detract from our family's enjoyment of the property, you may have different ideas of what constitutes a perfect vacation rental:
1) No pool
2) No off-street parking (we didn't have an issue finding on-street parking but La Jolla is densely populated and it may be an issue at certain times of the year).
3) No ceiling fans in the bedrooms. We slept with the windows open; it was a bit noisy with traffic first thing in the morning during the week.
4) The apartment is accessed by a flight of steps.
5) The place is a bit "lighting challenged" for reading at night.
Finally, I can't say enough positive things about our hosts. They were very, very nice people who are clearly adept when it comes to managing the property appropriately for guests (they've been at it since 2006). Take some time to get to know them. They are dyed-in-the-wool Californians who are a wealth of knowledge!
When planning our trip to San Diego, we were interested in a finding a place that had charm and was within walking distance of restaurants. Lisa and Michael's apartment fit the bill perfectly! We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, to the cove to see the seals and to the terrific near by restaurants.
Often when you view a place on the internet, it appears larger than it really is. In this case, the opposite is true. The pictures don't do the apartment justice. It is larger than it appears in the pictures and is absolutely beautiful!
When we opened the door, we were greeted with beautiful fresh flower arrangements as well as a bowl of fruit and home baked brownies. Wow! Lisa and Michael were wonderful hosts--helpful but not intrusive. If we ever find ourselves in the San Diego area again, we would most definitely consider renting this wonderful place again.
Great, comfortable place. The home has been furnished with care and attention. Wonderful personalized touches throughout, including lovely artwork and pottery. My husband, myself and our two children (five and three) slept very comfortably in the two rooms.
There are many restaurants and a grocery store within easy walking distance. There is a beach not too far away, though not one with amenities. The cove area is a long walk away, but manageable even with two kids. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful stay here! The location was great--conveniently within walking distance to so many places in La Jolla. We loved talking a walk down to the water and to the local restaurants. The place worked out great for us. We had family over in the evenings, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The home is comfy and beautiful. Lisa and Michael were great--very responsive to emails and calls before our visit and warm, welcoming and helpful upon our arrival.
