I grew up here in this idyllic place and even though my life has taken me all over the world I always consider this home. Windansea is a special place with awesome surfing, swimming and the most beautiful sunsets in the world. La Jolla is truly a gem that is always in my heart.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003
Thank you for letting us stay in your cozy cottage! We loved it and had a great time in La Jolla! The perfect get-away for us and we do enjoyed the wonderful walks along the ocean.
Thanks Cathleen for making us feel welcome and all your suggestions.
Highlight of our trip was Osteria Romantica restaurant down near La Jolla Shores.
We came to San Diego to visit family and to escape the Ohio winter for awhile and we found the perfect place!
The cottage is spotlessly clean, bright, well- furnished and with a fully stocked kitchen. A private parking space
is a nice bonus. And then there's the location! You're a block away from a gorgeous beach and walking distance to the village with a wide choice of great restaurants and shops. We also enjoyed walking to the public library and the Sunday morning farmers market! And La Jolla must be the best location in Southern California; it's an easy drive to Balboa Park and downtown, also not far from the desert, great hiking at Torrey Pines State Park.
The cottage is surprisingly roomy, as a couple we didn't feel cramped at all.
Special thanks to Cathleen, the manager, for keeping the place in such good shape and for being such a great
resource! We highly recommend the cottage and would definitely stay here again!
The owner needs a new greeter. When we arrived after a long day of travel we were greeted with move your car out of the driveway and into the back alley as if we should have known. We were subjected to a thorough review of all rules that went on and on as if we were teenagers. We were told if any spots were found on the couch our deposit would be kept. Not a fun way to begin a trip with so much caution and anxiety about the place. After the "greeter" left we had a great time.
We couldn't have been more happy with our selection of this place, especially in the month of February considering we made the trip from frigid Minneapolis. The proximity to the beach and the cleanliness/amenities of the place made it a thoroughly enjoyable stay for us. It is in the residential area of La Jolla so it is very quiet and safe and yet so close to a bunch of good restaurants and the La Jolla village. It is a perfect size place for a couple and my 7 month pregnant wife thoroughly enjoyed it. Cathleen was also very helpful in giving us pointers on places to go see, eat, etc. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a perfect vacation location/place in San Diego ... LA JOLLA is the place to be for sure!!
Stayed for a long weekend and had a great time. Chathleen the manager was very helpful even waiting up for us to show late in the evening. The home was just as pictured clean, bright, and well maintained maybe too bright the ONLY downfall for the whole weekend was no blinds on the sky lights in the bedroom. Everything we needed was within walking distance or a short drive. The beach was a short walk down the street. Would love to go back and strongly recommend to others.
I have stayed at this great little beach cottage twice now during two different seasons and have loved it both times. It's quiet, comfortable, and located about half a block from gorgeous Windansea beach. It's a great place to retreat when you need some time away from it all and want to be in one of San Diego's most beautiful areas. Cathleen, the property manager, is a sweet and lovely woman who is a real local. She gives great advice on things to do, places to see, and even where to park! She's fantastic and takes pride in making sure the property is pristine and well-kept. The cottage itself is exactly as it is in the photos -- modern, well appointed, cozy and very clean. If it wasn't a beach rental, I would live there in a heartbeat. Enjoy this little gem of a place and you just might not want to leave! It's the perfect little getaway.
My wife and I got married in La Jolla 4 years ago at the Museum. Every year for our anniversary, we return for the week. Last year we found this cottage and absolutely loved it. We have stayed at other places, but this is the first time we are planning on staying at the same location. It was very clean, quiet, well appointed and close to the beach. Nice patio with a grill (we love to cook fresh fish at night). Bed was very comfortable, nice tv's and surround sound to enjoy music. We are returning shortly, and quite frankly, I can't wait!
