Even nicer than the photos - great family vacation at Windansea

We had a wonderful stay here with our three-year-old and my parents. The home is even more attractive than the photos suggest and very well-appointed with nice appliances and basics in the kitchen, as well as buckets and spades, beach chairs and plenty of towels. Loads of space, big bathrooms and bedrooms, and an attractive neighborhood that is half a block up from the beach on a very quiet road. The best time of day was late afternoon when we'd go exploring at low tide and watch the surfers before sunset. The owners were extremely available and helpful with restaurant suggestions and trouble shooting with us when the house's WiFi did not work (we got it up and running again quickly!)
The town of La Jolla is a short, attractive walk away along the beach (at low tide only) or residential roads. Brunch on the porch at Cody's was lovely, and we had a great dinner at the Whiskanladle. Even closer to the house is El Pescador seafood market - I highly recommend getting the wonderful takeout fish sandwiches and taking them to the beach for a sunset picnic! And anyone with little kids should not miss Legoland, the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, or the Torrey Pines Gliderport. Hiking in Torrey Pines was also beautiful, as was Point Loma lighthouse (further away). Even with not-so-great weather while we were there, it was a wonderful family vacation.
