Enjoy romantic early La Jolla, at Casasol, a historic Mediterranean home. Casasol was designed by Thomas Shepherd in the 1930s, near Bird Rock, within a few minutes walk to Windansea beach. A designated historic property, today it is restored and modernized, but filled with the same charm and character that the architect gave La Jolla's famous La Valencia Hotel:carved stone benches, leaded glass windows, hand-crafted tiles; high beamed ceilings; paneled dining room, tile and wood floors. The 4000 sq ft. home includes four bedrooms, five baths, large dining room, modern kitchen, large family room, living room, and two studies. The upstairs has three large bedrooms (California King, queen, and two single beds), and three bathrooms. Downstairs: study w/single bed and bath. We also have 2 folding beds for young people and Graco crib.The family room has an adjacent cabana bathroom for the pool. The pool is about 50 feet in length and is 9 feet deep at the deep end.

The coastal village of La Jolla is dramatic and beautiful. There are caves and cliffs that edge the sea shore, in some places covered with seals and sea lions, pelicans, and many other birds. You often see dolphins jumping in the waves, sometimes near the many surfers that enjoy select surfing spots. Our main beaches are next to a Marine Life Sanctuary, so you can go snorkeling and see exquisite sea creatures. (The Scripps Aquarium is located here, where you can see up close all the marine life that lives here.) At La Jolla Shores you can rent kayak boats and one of the companies will give you a tour by kayak of the coast cliffs.
The village of La Jolla grew up in the 1920s as a popular spot for Hollywood stars to stay in. They stayed at the La Valencia hotel, and performed at the La Jolla Playhouse. So, there is a little village, with many wonderful shops and restaurants, right next to the sea.
