We were a family of 4 from the UK touring California for 3 weeks and we wanted a week of total relaxation. The house was just perfect and proved to be such a sanctuary that we didn't want to leave it during the day! When we did we didn't venture much beyond the locality (Birdrock) which we were totally charmed by. Yes, La Jolla itself is lovely but Birdrock provided us with the laid-back Californian charm that we were looking for. We became locals at the Coffee Roastery, Beaumont's, The Fishery and Oscar's Seafood (looks like nothing from the outside but serves the best Ceviche I have ever tasted). Cherie was a charming and personable host and we really appreciated her thoughtfulness by providing us with English Teabags, milk/drinks etc. We would love to return one day.
