HISTORIC LA JOLLA COVE COTTAGE ON THE OCEAN -BEACHFRONT LUXURY

La Jolla Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

You will be able to truly live out your Southern California Vacation dream when you stay in the oceanfront Historic Luxury Cove Cottage. This home has been featured on the cover of a magazine and used as the set of a cooking show. It is also an annual stop on the Historic La Jolla walking tour and the San Diego Home and Garden tour. Its unique roof line and octagonal design make it a real treat if you happen to enjoy architecture. The cliffs in front of the cottage are known as Whale View Point. People come from around the world to sit and gaze at the beauty of the Pacific Ocean at this very spot. On weekends you’ll see nearby artists painting at their easels, picnickers with bountiful feasts and couples reciting their vows in the nearby wedding bowl as the sun sets over the horizon.

When you wake up in the morning you can walk to the beach just outside your door for an early swim and then wash off the sand in your outdoor shower adjacent to the patio. Afterwards, you’ll be able to take the family into the village, just two blocks east, for a day of shopping, or visit the local museum and aquarium. In the evening watch the seals play on the beach, before

walking back to the house to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. When you go to bed, you’ll fall asleep peacefully as the sounds of the ocean lull you into a deep slumber.

Parking at this home comes with garage space for two cars and the whole house comfortably sleeps eight guests. If you rent the entire house you’ll have access to five outdoor spaces—there are two patios upstairs and three downstairs! The best views can be found upstairs, so if you find yourself on the fence between renting the whole cottage or just the downstairs, we highly recommend you rent the whole home to have a vacation or business trip you’ll always treasure.

Rental Options:

You may book either the main floor of the cottage (maximum 6 guests) or the whole house (with upper apartment, for a total of 8 guests).

Option 1: Main Level (allows for 6 guests)

The upper level apartment will not be rented during your stay.

The main level sleeps 6 but the master bedroom has a futon that allows for one additional guest.

Option 2: Whole House – Including Upper Level Apartment (total of 8 guests)

There is an apartment above the master and the garage that allows for 2 additional guests, for a total of 8 guests. It is available for rental when you rent the whole house. It has a queen bed, office, small kitchenette and huge bathroom with a full terrace off of the bathroom.

Room Descriptions

Living Room (In Main level)

This unique octagonal room is the perfect place to unwind. Relax on the couch by the fireplace with a book or watch T.V. on the HD flat-screen with cable.

Kitchen (In Main Level)

It’s recently renovated and ready for your gourmet delights. With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances working in this space will be a breeze. You’ll be able to enjoy cooking while partaking of ocean views and the company of friends and family in the dining room.

Downstairs Master Bedroom (In main Level)

From this room you will be able to wake up to ocean views and savor breakfast on your own personal patio. Outside there is a table for four and two deck chairs for sunbathing. The bedroom has its own private bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. Connected to the master bedroom there is also a very cozy den with a comfy couch and a big glass window from which to enjoy the sights and sounds.

Captain’s Room (In Main Level)

For some people, this is the best bedroom in the house as its cozy feel and architectural position gives the impression of being right on the water’s edge. It has its own personal patio with seating for two that’s ideal for morning coffee or tea.

Upstairs Apartment (Only available with rental of Whole House)

The most majestic views of the ocean can be found here. There are two patios, a kitchenette, an office and a huge bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks and a walk-in shower. The apartment repeats the octagonal design of the living room, as well as the unique tall pitched ceiling providing an extra spacious feel. And to top it all off a big king size bed along with a big flat screen TV.

Our cottage is one of the few old cottages still standing where it was built. Many natives call it one of the original jewels. The Odell family bought it in 1957 and has rented it out as a vacation rental since 1996. I am the manager of the rental and keep it in fine tune for the new owner.

I have been married to Steve Williams for 36 years, have 5 grown children and 5 grand children. I was a middle school teacher for many years in south central Los Angeles. I love my family, the cottage and my job. .

Laura Williams purchased this cottage in 2013

Under new ownership and managed by the old owner, This house offers a unique spot on the ocean. Nothing has been changed from it's past.

No one comes away from a stay without commenting on the comfort of our beds and towels. The views from very room in the house of the ocean are breathtaking. The best tidal pools are below us and the seals are a block away. We are just 100 yards from the wedding bowl. Our decks and balconies bring every guest a front row seat to sunsets.There is no other home like ours.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
You cannot beat the location of this property. It is situated directly across the street from the ocean. We loved the conveinance of slipping into our swimsuits and walking across the street to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The outside landscape is lovely but the inside of the property leaves something to be desired. It is pretty outdated, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. I love to cook but kept myself out of the kitchen as much a possible. One other downside to the property is that the owner stays upstairs while you rent the main floor. Not a huge deal, but you don't feel like you are quite on your own. With that said, the wonderful location did make up for the aging interior. Not sure we will stay here again but we're very grateful for the wonderful memories the bungalow provided us during our stay, If your expectation of the property includes a beautiful, modern interior I'd suggest staying elsewhere. If not, I'd recommend giving it a shot!

Our Enchanted Family Vacation at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I love reviews. They are good for promoting great property etc. and helping others when things aren't what they say they are. This was our first beach rental ever. We wanted a property that would allow our entire family of six adults to be together and not feel cramped. Everyone except me is over six feet tall so we needed big beds too. From the moment we met Laura at the cottage we knew we had made the right decision. Being that she has lived at this property for many years she was most helpful in pointing out all the little details that would make our stay more comfortable. If you are looking for modern, contemporary, upbeat, this is not a property I think you would enjoy. However, if you want family time, amazing views, comfortable beds with the softest sheets I have ever slept on, quiet evenings where all you can hear is the surf, beautiful sunsets and an easy walk to town, then this is your rental. Having a washer and dryer makes your stay even more like being home so you won't need to take all the clothes we did this year. Every bedroom has its own sitting area outside which is so unbelievable. The owners had just purchased all new patio furniture and we felt so fortunate to have this extra space. We did lots of BBQ and outdoor meals which was again so special to our family. The amenities provided were so appreciated. One problem and it isn't the fault of the cottage is the cell service is very poor in most areas. A great fix to this is there is a land line for your use which is very convenient. It was actually really nice not having our cell phones ringing. There was a huge (60 inch at least) HD TV in the living room. All bedrooms also had wonderful flat screen TV's but we rarely turned them on. There is a two car garage and YES we did get both a jeep and Grand Cherokee Jeep in there. The cottage also has lots a fans for every room so no need to drag that along as we did. The family room has a large coffee table which was fantastic for working on our 1000 piece puzzle. These are all little notes about how enchanting this time was while we stayed 10 days at the little pink cottage. We can't wait to go back next year again. We also worked with Gabriela who was very efficient and met the owner while checking out, Sara Long. Darling woman bringing in more new furniture pieces to make this special place even nicer. We were all sad as we left our little enchanted cottage but are making lots of plans for our return!

MAGICAL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this place for my grandmother and she loved it. We had the best time. Place couldn't have been more perfect for her and the rest of my family. You could see the water from any point in the house. We laid out on the grass to watch the sunset every night and it was just perfect. I loved every bit of this house. We made some unforgettable memories! Thank you Laura. Can't wait to be back there again soon!! All the best. xo

Thanks for the Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is truly an amazing and very special place to stay. My family and I had a wonderful visit and indeed we all feel quite lucky to have stayed in this delightful historic beach cottage. We really hated to leave the sound of the crashing waves, the magnificent views, and our evening strolls down to the tide pools. The property manager Laura is one of the kindest most responsive professional people I have ever known. You would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay. Thanks again Laura!
Warm regards, Michael and family

Enjoyed the time

  • 5 of 5
Well we had a great time at this house. I have been wanting to stay here for a long time. You can hear the ocean the windows open in each room. The view is awesome, you can see seals, dolpins and can just walk down to the tide pools.You can just watch the people go by. The house is clean the kitchen has been updated, it is like the pictures. We met Laura and her mom and the dogs, we had no problem with any noise, there are not any stains on the ceilings. ( I think the person who wrote that article on the review had personal issues) We found none of that and we were there within 2 weeks of their review. So if you want to enjoy a house with a great view, lots of room, with your own yard, and take along your pet, then consider staying here. We enjoyed the fireplace and the porch off the master bedroom such a relaxing time for us. As for heat, the space heaters worked great we were never cold and we had rain for a day. The rest of the time weatherwise was good the breeze from the ocean cooled the house in the afternoon. We did not make time for the firepit this time but will on our next visit. Enjoyed looking through the books in the reading room and reading the book you mom wrote. Thanks for sharing the house with us. We will be back again next year. S

Wonderful Historic Home!

Wonderful Retreat

We had a wonderful time staying in this historic home. The location could not be better! The kitchen is recently renovated with great appliances. The beds were super comfy, and we loved hanging out on the patios.

We will be back.
