Canadians in La Jolla

Staying in this home is not just a vacation, it is an experience. Being walking distance to the beach is a bonus. One of my friends got up every morning, early and walked the beach before we were even up. He loved it. The beds were very comfortable and we loved that everyone had their own bathroom. The house was great and had everything we needed and the kids loved the pool plus used the boogie boards 5 times. We even used the bikes. It was a ritual that before we got in the car a few of us had to ride the bikes down the alley and back. We loved sitting on the patio in the beautiful backyard. The foliage, the gardens and the trees were too beautiful for words. The kids loved playing their music that played outside while they used the pool. We loved the kitchen and it had everything we needed. We ate breakfast at the house, but did not have the privilege of making dinners there as we were always out and about. I have never seen a kitchen more equipped than yours and I am a cook and entertainer. A chef's paradise.
All in all, we had a wonderful time. The weather was great, the location was great and the house was superb. It is a very interesting home and I wish you had of been there so we could have asked you the history of it. It intrigued us. We loved the porcelain fixtures with the patent year on them and the original state of the bathrooms. Very cool! The light fixtures were interesting as well. If the walls could talk, that house could tell a few stories. The front door with the gothic stained glass is a museum piece. You have retained the historical aspect of the house but also added modern flavour to it and it all goes together very nicely. Also, your furniture is beautiful. Down filled couches (exquisite). We had everything we needed plus some. Thanks for having us.
Thank you for sharing your home with us because it is truly a "home" and not a "rental". I've stayed in rentals and know the difference.
We had a wonderful time.
