La Jolla Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)

You will be able to truly live out your Southern California Vacation dream when you stay in the oceanfront Historic Luxury La Jolla Village 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 Village 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 house are known as Whale View Point. People come from around the world to sit and gaze at the beauty of the Pacific Ocean sunset 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 ten 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.

This is an elegant, contemporary 2,700 Square Foot La Jolla Village Cottage. Modern upgrades including a Chef's Viking range complement the sun-splashed kitchen. Recently remodeled, and professionally designed, exquisite furnishings complete this fully equipped home with 5 flat screen TV’s which are 80inch, 65inch, 50inch and 42inch with premium cable in all 3 bedrooms and in the living room, WiFi, and all the amenities one would expect of a luxury home on an ocean front street. The house has a temperature control air jet swirl Jacuzzi, 2 larger shower area plus an outside shower in the yard. The private fully fenced backyard patio features a comfortable outdoor seating area for entertaining and barbecues. The furnishings are of the highest quality. Enjoy ocean views from every room of the house. You will enjoy three patios, one from each bedroom to enjoy the sunset.

Walk just steps down a gentle walkway to find the finest white sand BEACH in sunny Southern California for your outdoor enjoyment. Watch the divers at the underwater marine park at La Jolla Cove.

This home is the ultimate La Jolla cove luxury beach cottage.

About Laura Williams

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.

Laura Williams purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Laura Williams chose La Jolla

Under new ownership and managed by the old owner, This house offers a unique spot on the ocean.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Tomorrow we leave this wonderful house with all of it's history, but we take with us our own memories.

I understand why this place is concidered a piece of heaven on earth.

Thank you for sharing it with us my new friend,

This is the second time my family rented this house for a family get together. The house is wonderful. The location is fabulous. The house was well stocked with plenty of towels and items necessary for a family gathering. The bathrooms are luxurious and modern. We will make this an annual gathering spot.

La Jolla Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The family stayed last week to celebrate my wife and my 30th Anniversary. The house was awesome 5 patios to either take in the views or to get a little seclusion. The beds were all very comfortable and the rooms were big. Big screen TV's for watching football was an unexpected surprise. The weather didn't cooperate as it was very warm and humid and the house has no AC but that's kinda the luck of the draw with vacation plans. Windows opened with screens made it bearable though. One bathroom downstairs needs to be updated but that's knit picking. All in all very nice house enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks for having us.

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!

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
