LA JOLLA RETREAT CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! 4,500 SF WITH 6 BEDROOMS!

La Jolla House Rental Photos and Description

Midcentury Modern Home with Stunning Canyon Views(Sleeps 14)

FAMILY REUNIONS/CORPORATE RETREATS/FILM!! ---Lots of free parking makes this perfect for large groups! (Rates start at $980 per night and can go to $1,300 in high season/holidays)

(Please note that this is our family home, and we reserve the right to refuse a rental if we are uncomfortable with a situation for any reason-- in advance of signing an agreement). WE DO NOT ADVERTISE OUR HOME ON CRAIGSLIST! PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU DO BUSINESS WITH THE INDIVIDUAL ON CRAIGSLIST THAT IT IS NOT THE TRUE OWNER, AND NO RESERVATION MADE THROUGH CRAIGSLIST FOR OUR PROPERTY WILL BE HONORED, AS IT IS SOMEONE WHO HAS STOLEN OUR PHOTOS AND OUR ADVERTISEMENT. WE ONLY RENT THROUGH VRBO/HOMEAWAY AND THEIR PARTNERS. -- My calendar online is not updated for this specific reason. You must contact me for availability. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this has created if you're seeing availability and then receiving a notice that it's already booked.

This mid-century modern home (1959) was purchased in 2012 and has undergone extensive renovations. Enter the front foyer through the retro-orange double doors and you'll be greeted by the open, loft-style living space, with great room, modern kitchen with all new appliances, a long, spacious table that seats up to 12 people. This is the perfect space for entertaining and gathering with your family. The floors are a sleek, grey concrete, and the entire back wall of the home features glass windows and French doors, overlooking a large concrete deck, with built-in sun shade canopy--and pool and mountains below. This is California living where the indoors and outdoors join one another in beautiful harmony.

Take a walk down the winding stairs to the lower pool deck, where ample pool furniture awaits your day of fun in the sun. The property is completely private and very spacious for large gatherings. The dark-bottom pool is tranquil and welcoming for a day of play or relaxation. (not heated)

The Master Bedroom has French doors that lead onto a private patio (which adjoins the very large outdoor patio to the main living space). This modern space is luxurious and overlooks the pool and the beautiful sunrise you can watch from the bed through all the windows overlooking the mountains/canyons. Relax in the brand new soaking tub, or start your day in the beautiful shower glimmering with Italian tile by Bisazza.

Each of the other bedrooms have their own private baths and have been given modern facelifts with different personalities--tranquil turquoise, spunky pink, city scape, and luscious lavender, all re-designed by the owner/interior stylist.

There is an entire studio downstairs that is wonderful for those traveling with a second family or other beloved companions who desire their own space at times. The studio has a separate entrance (but also an interior entrance and staircase that joins the studio with the house, if unlocked), and it's just steps from the pool. The studio has a kitchenette, its own bathroom, dining area and full living room with television. (Sleeps 5--queen bed and bunk bed with two single beds).

Overall, the house is warm, fun, simple, sleek, stylish and lovingly cared for. We think it's the perfect place for your class reunion, family reunion, corporate retreat, weekend or week away, graduation, wedding ceremony (under 100 guests), or just any kind of vacation or business trip you have planned. We are always pleased to have you as guests.

We are gracious homeowners who have experience managing properties from the very small studio to the ultra-luxurious properties valued over $7 million. This listing is for our home that we lovingly share with guests from all over the world, and we hope you will choose La Jolla, and our home, for your San Diego adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great weekend at your home! The eclectic group we had collected for a memorial weekend there all truly enjoyed the comfortable and stylish place that this home is! There was more than enough room for all the guests… And even for the one or two we hadn’t expected. The huge well equipped kitchen was amazing and really made a great central gathering spot. The pool while though the weather was WAY too cold to swim was lovely to look at. The bedrooms were ideal and suited beautifully to housing a large group of people with an array of ages and variety of tastes. The home’s feature we made most use of however, was the fire-pit! There were s’mores and hot dogs roasted and even a few songs. We truly had a wonderful time and due mostly to your home and the feeling of relaxation we had being in it! We can’t say enough thanks to you and your family’s generous hospitality and for sharing your lovely accommodations!

I began renting my family home in Santa Monica in 2008. It was such a great experience, and I've had the pleasure of hosting many families from so many countries around the world. I am an experienced vacation rental owner/manager. I have more than 3 years of experience in renting properties from studio-size through high-end luxury homes worth over $7 million dollars. This is my home advertised here, and I take my job--and your vacation experience--seriously. I love to have repeat guests and word-of-mouth referrals. I feel blessed to share my city and my home with families from around the world. I take time to make things as comfortable as I would want them to be when I travel (often). Here's to a successful vacation and memory for you and your family...

Kimberly purchased this house in 2012

I found this home in January of 2012 and knew that I loved it right away. It had not been cared for in quite a long time and needed a lot of love. So, I've taken time to bring it into the modern age while also trying to respect its age and character. It is a beautiful symmetry so far, and the guests we've had are loving its comfortable spaces and unique style (60's style, art gallery, sleek, modern--while still classic and vintage). It's a large property with several quiet places to relax, and the views are stunning. Wake up in the bedrooms to pink and orange sunrises painted across the skies, and eat dinner watching the sunset and all of its magic as it splashes color through the windows of the kitchen and great room. Makes smores at the firepit and make memories for a lifetime.

Some people think they want to be right on the beach or to step outside and walk to a restaurant or shop. We love this kind of experience too sometimes, but after looking to purchase a home in La Jolla for over a year, the one thing we began to realize is that the Shores and the Village have terrible problems with parking and traffic. We feel our location is unique because we can drive to the beach in five minutes, but when we want to take the kids to the zoo or Sea World or any other attraction in San Diego, we have very easy access to several major roads and highways without the traffic and the noise. Also, the views from the top of this hill are amazing. Every morning, there's a new shade of orange and pink; each night as we fall asleep to the lights glittering in the distance. It's magical. We build a fire in the fire pit nearly every night. Each experience each day, even cooking breakfast in the huge kitchen, feels like vacation. We are happy to share this with our guests.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
I am embarrassed that it has taken me this long to review this incredible property. Kimberly deserves nothing but praise! I stayed at this property for the weekend in the beginning of June, co-hosting our first annual company retreat with my business partner. We are a bicoastal fashion and entertainment agency and thought La Jolla would make a great destination, since much of our staff are based in LA. Three of us flew out to the west coast for the retreat and a total of nine of us (plus an infant!) stayed at the house. We could not have made a better choice. The house is absolutely gorgeous and the setting is stellar and super convenient to all the things La Jolla has to offer. We traveled with an infant and she so enjoyed the pool and the beautiful lawn and the giant rope swing! The house is immaculately kept and all rooms are designed beautifully with a mid century sensibility and some fun quirky, colors and lots of spirit. The master bedroom is absolutely amazing. The guesthouse/adjacent bungalow is the most charming place you've ever seen--you are almost transported to another country. Kimberly was the perfect host and you can tell she takes great pride in sharing her beautiful home, which she personally renovated and designed. She did not miss one detail--everything was communicated perfectly to us from the very first correspondence. For us, it was a unique home away from home--we felt at home there immediately and with nine of us plus a baby, we never once felt crowded. The house and property is sprawling and stunning and frankly, an incredibly reasonable price for what it is. I recommend this to any families or friends traveling together. You will have a wonderful stay in La Jolla and you are 5 minutes from anything you want--supermarkets, beaches, restaurants, etc. Thank you, Kimberly for a wonderful stay and please do accept my apologies for taking so long to write this! We hope to stay again! With warm wishes, Sharon

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! I have been blessed to have such wonderful and amazing guests. I am so pleased that you loved our home so much and enjoyed your stay. In the past, I didn't always get to meet my guests in person when they checked in, but sometimes I am lucky enough to do so. You all were warm and wonderful and great communicators, and it was lovely to meet you all. I'm greatly appreciative of you choosing our home and for you taking the time to share your experience with others. We do hope you'll join us again sometime soon. ~Kimberly

THE PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family of 8 adults, 5 children (ages 13-1 year) loved, loved, loved this home. Beginning with my first contact with Kimberly to the day our vacation ended, it couldn't have gone smoother. This home is exactly as it is portrayed online. Every adult couple had their own bedroom and bath and 5 of the kids slept in the studio, which they loved, and the baby had a room of her own. It could not have been more perfect. The pool, of course, was the main attraction. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of room for sit down family dinners. The bedrooms are darling. The master is very elegant, although I am not crazy about a bathroom open to the bedroom, but there are curtains that can be drawn if you require more privacy. I'm always a nut about cleanliness when I stay away from home and I can honestly say that this house was spotless. I felt right at home. I've rented homes in Hawaii and other places for my family and in the homes there was always some kind of a guest book. My little ones love writing in the guest book but there wasn't one in this home, so we got one and each one of the 6 made a comment. I took a picture and will include it in our vacation memory book. Thank you Kimberly for helping us to make so many happy memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Carol! I felt the same working with you that there was a great rapport from beginning to end. I'm thrilled you had such a great time, and I thank you so much for providing a guest book for us. I can't wait to finish up all my traveling to get home and see the book! We would love to have you back for more memories sometime. Thanks again!

Great house for wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in this house for 4 days. We were attending my son's wedding and holding the rehearsal dinner at the house. The space was great for 15 of us to stay, including my son and all of his groomsmen in the studio. It was so wonderful to see my son and his closest friends swimming, playing games, and relaxing before getting ready for the wedding. The house was very clean and well stocked with towels, linens, etc. We hosted the rehearsal dinner for 50 guests and the patio and kitchen were perfect spaces for so many people to visit. Even though the house was great, what we were even more impressed with was how accommodating Kimberly was. We had some special requests in order to host so many people and she was very willing to work with us. We didn't have any problems, but if something comes up while you are staying at this terrific house, you can be assured that Kimberly will be very responsive and willing to help make your stay very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Amy, for your fantastic stay. Your feedback during your visit helped me get creative to build a sunshade area over the patio, and I love that guests are so inspiring. It was a pleasure to meet several of you, and I'm happy you had such a great time together as your son began a new chapter in his life. Thanks again. We hope you come back to celebrate future milestones. Blessings!

Wedding weekend in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for 4 days in this great house! We were in town for our daughters wedding which was held within 5 minutes drive of the house and stayed with our large extended family. It was wonderful to have a place where we could all stay together ( there were 14 of us plus a toddler) and have some place to gather in between wedding activities. It also gave us plenty of room for last minute wedding preparation! The bride-to-be and her attendants spent the night before the wedding in the downstairs studio and dressed for the wedding the next day. The pool was well used and beautiful; the yard was relaxing and comfortable, and the beach is only minutes away!
We threw a brunch for 40 people the day after the wedding and had plenty of room for all!Kim was very helpful in making sure we had all the info we needed to feel at ease in the house and was available if we needed her.
I would highly recommend this house for large families or multi-family gatherings!

Amazing large house in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5
My company of 10 spent a few days in La Jolla at this house. I can't express how this house exceeded our expectations. The pool was perfect, the house was HUGE and perfect accommodations for a large group + Kimberly was so nice to work with.

If you're looking for a great place in La Jolla, look no further!

Great home

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 17 people visit San Diego for a weekend get together/golf vacation. The house was perfect for our situation. We had family groups as well as singles and couples, and we were able to accommodate everyone. The kitchen is big, open and flexible for seating lots of people and the kitchen prep areas are well placed and we easily fit many around the island for prepping food for cooking. Generally the kitchen is well appointed with tools and equipment. The oven is on the small side and not user friendly and best left to one person to figure out and master its complicated menus! The 2 large refrigerators worked great for storing food and beverages for our large group. The grill was ready to go and the fire pit was a hit. Hot water was never a problem for the many showers. We had lots of rental cars and the property handled all of them parked in a line. The pool was nice but the weather was cool, so we did not get in. The house worked extremely well for our group and I would highly recommend it!

La Jolla Shores
Car: necessary

We are located in what we view to be the MOST convenient location to all of San Diego's most sought after attractions. Set just above La Jolla Shores, Windansea and the Cove are wonderful places to relax, dine in tiny neighborhood and trendy restaurants, shop the boutiques, surf, dream, see sea lions, build sand castles, watch the sunset from the cliffs. This location insulates you from the beach traffic of the La Jolla Shores, Windansea and Cove region. It's a quick jaunt to the beach, but you won't have to sit in daily traffic, as the house is at the top of the hill and provides easy freeway access for all of San Diego's other sites, such as Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Mission Bay, Mission Beach, Downtown (Gaslamp), and so many other desired locations. Most parts of Los Angeles and Disney (Anaheim) are within two hours driving from this part of San Diego.

In addition to our close proximity to the 5 freeway and many beaches and attractions, our property is located 1/2 mile from the La Jolla YMCA and 1 mile from University California San Diego, Torrey Pines golf course and Scripps clinic/hospital.
