Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week here over spring break and enjoyed every minute of it. I am one of those people who puts a considerable amount of time into searching for places to stay when I travel because I want to be comfortable. However, I am also the type that knows what I like, so when I find something that appeals to me, I make an immediate decision--and this is what happened with the Hoffman house. Brant the property manager, responded to my email inquiry immediately. The contract was then emailed making the whole booking process very simple and pleasant. The house which is located in the Bird Rock area of La Jolla, looks exactly as photographed and I can assure you is in excellent condition. The furnishings are very modern and the home has a lot of custom touches like Japanese style screen walls that run on tracks, bamboo and slate flooring, and a sliding glass door unit that opens fully onto the patio. The house also is located on a large corner lot, one block from the ocean. One of my favorite areas of the house is the front deck which faces the water. Each morning I would sit and drink my coffee out there, and later in the afternoon enjoy some wine just looking out at the view and watching the military helicopters fly by. The deck has two chase lounges, ample seating, and charcoal bbq that we used a couple of times. Downstairs there is a small one bedroom apartment with kitchen. This unit has an external staircase only. As mentioned the house is on a corner lot, and this part of the street does have some activity due to it being nearby to town and a condo building being across the way. As shown in the photos, there are windows everywhere so it's sort of like being in a glass fishbowl. If you don't feel comfortable being exposed, the shades are all electric so you can adjust the different window zones by remote control. The kitchen in well equipped and has a wolf stove. As for the neighborhood, there is a park around the corner that overlooks the water and lots of large houses to admire. There is a CVS pharmacy and a Starbucks nearby that you can walk to and the closest food market was Haggens which did the trick. Further away is Vons and the furthest is Whole Foods. The Children's beach is about an 8 min drive and is a must to go to. The seals and sea lions are right there for you to look at. Pacific beach is less than a 5 minute drive. Downtown La Jolla has lots a great shopping and places to eat.

Modern mid-century gem

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a glorious week here for our March break. The downstairs suite was perfect for my Mother-in-law (but with no stove or laundry is not a stand alone space) and she was very comfortable. The generous deck was great for relaxing in the afternoon sun, and the house itself is very well laid out, was beautifully renovated and pretty well equipped. You can tell the homeowners put a lot of thought into remodeling this home.

Bird Rock was a great neighborhood for us- the taco shop, Italian restaurant and yoga studio nearby were all great as was the vibe in the neighborhood. It's a great base for sightseeing in the San Diego area, laid back but not sleepy.

I would recommend this house for anyone wanting to stay in the La Jolla area.

Property Not Clean

  • 1 of 5

We rented starting on a Saturday.

Check-in was delayed due to cleaners still in the unit when we arrived.

When we were able to get in, the kitchen was not clean and smelled. We started cleaning ourselves.

The worst was when we went to pull the linens down for the beds. They were disgustingly soiled. We sent photos to the owners who instructed us to find clean linens in the drawers of the kitchenette or in the closets. The "clean" linens were even more disgustingly soiled with severe stains. We again sent photos and asked the owners to reimburse us to purchase new sheets. They said there were plenty of linens available already and would not have us purchase new sheets. We slept on towels the first few nights and purchased new sheets and brought them home with us.

The jacuzzi did not work and the owners finally agreed to have it serviced on Tuesday. They did not agree to have it cleaned from previous renters until the regularly scheduled cleaning the following Thursday, so we only had two days of the jacuzzi as it was also dirty.

The furniture was not clean (also noted in a previous review), and we sat on towels. The bathrooms however were very clean.

We received our full security deposit back, but asked for compensation for the sheets, the cleaning, and the jacuzzi, but we did not receive any. This was an expensive rental.

West Coast Wonder

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son & daughter-in-law and I were lucky enough to stay in this spectacular house for a long weekend. The pictures are very accurate, but don't prepare one for the delight of the view, the breezes, the access to all La Jolla has to offer. It was a great vacation. The house is stunning but also very peaceful, especially watching the water and water birds, and looking from the dining room out to the bamboo and zen rock in the side garden.

The neighborhood is walkable, and offers views from each dead-end street, and some beach access. Everything else is a short drive away. We enjoyed the deck and the walks so much that we didn't do all the exploring I had planned, but we visited the beaches nearby, the seal beaches in La Jolla, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and several of the wonderful museums and gardens in Balboa Park. Be sure to catch a concert of the outdoor organ there, if you visit on a Sunday!

And we ate, very well, at several restaurants in La Jolla and Pacific Beach, as well as "at home," where the kitchen is equipped with much better appliances than I have at home, very nice dishes, and all the kitchen gear one needs. (At last, a good peeler!)

The house furnishings were very nice and nicely kept, but not intimidating. TVs are plentiful, and everything seemed to work quite well. I was especially in awe of how the owners and their helpers can keep all that glass so pristine!

I only had one small concern, and the owner answered my text to her quickly and satisfactorily. The agent was also quick to answer my emails about the property and the check-in procedure. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for someplace special to enjoy a beautiful part of the country. We visit once a year from the east coast and this made our trip a real treat.

if you stay here, don't expect to see your deposit again

  • 1 of 5

The house was in a nice location, but was worn out: scraped up, faded outdoor chairs; dingy sofa, thin bedding...

So, yes the bedding. The owner sent me a letter and a bill for 780$ to replace the sheets due to a "stain". the "stain" in question was a small bit of zinc based sunscreen. I remember when a little got on the worn out coverlet. I didn't fret because i know it washes out--easily. The owner said that because of that easily washable spot, she had to not only replace the coverlet, but the ENTIRE BEDDING SET. shams, pillow cases sheets, because the new coverlet wouldn't match the old sheets. Likely because the old sheets were truly old. The old sheets were very thin and scratchy. no doubt, we were taken advantage of.

The owner's correspondence was ridiculous. she said I should be thankful she was able to buy the sheets on her own time or she would have charged me a 'shopping fee' as well.

i would never stay here again. i wold never recommend this to any of my friends or acquaintances. i hope they use their next renters deposit to clean the dirty sofa. i had to drape it with a blanket before sitting on it.

Owner's Response: In response to Review #7559066, we need to emphatically state that this was the only time when a vacation renter did not receive their ENTIRE deposit back, also in a timely manner. This is our home, not an investment rental property, and we take great pride in the quality furnishings (B&B Italia, Knoll, Ligne Roset, Custom Pieces) as well as quality linens (SFERA, Hotel Collection, Scandia, etc.). We love the clean modern décor. We are constantly replacing bedding, linens, towels, etc. and the home is well-maintained, including timely furniture cleaning, window cleaning, and all maintenance. We are quick to respond to any renter questions or any repair which might arise during their stay. In direct response to this renters review, if the stains on the bedding were easily washable, my cleaning crew would not have sent me pictures of the still-present stains after cleaning, alerting me that it was unacceptable for my next guests arrival. If there had been any communication from this guest, we would probably have been able to come to a better solution, instead of a 24-hour window to make the home aesthetically pleasing for our next guests.

Fabulous property in a stellar setting!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our "girls" weekend in La Jolla. It is in a very desirable location which is close to everything; you can walk to restaurants and shops as well as the beach. The view as well as the house itself is beautiful (exactly as shown in the pics). Beaumonts was a wonderful local hangout but we found that most things in La Jolla close fairly early on Sundays. We did the La Jolla Cove kayak trip which was quite touristy but still a good way to see some of Southern California's wildlife up close and personal; and the guides were actually really knowledgeable about the area (and they weren't too hard on the eyes either!)

The only issue I have with this rental was communication with the realtor was not especially prompt (as experienced by other trip advisor members). The only communication I had with him that was prompt was when I received the check-in instructions and keybox combination; all other communications took far longer than I expected (especially initial contact) - I almost booked another house because it took him so long to return my emails/numerous calls. My deposit was returned in a timely manner however.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property; just give yourself plenty of time on the front end to negotiate with the realtor.

Owner's Response: we are happy to hear that this group enjoyed our home and the location. Our realtor who has 20 other vacation rentals in La Jolla has always been very responsive with us as well as our guests. He was on vacation with his family when the inquiry was first sent which was the reason for the delay in the response.
