Overview

San Diego Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Jet-setters will love this modern, first story, ocean view condo with its clean lines and large windows. Transporting your luggage upon arrival will be a breeze as you’ll be able to move from your designated garage space to the unit in a very convenient elevator. The condo features a handsome main room that combines the kitchen, dining and living room area. The space is arranged such that you’ll always enjoy the nearby Pacific Ocean whether you’re preparing a meal, eating breakfast, reading a book or watching television. During the right time of year you may even be able to spot some passing whales.

With 1300 feet of living space, sleeping for six and two full bathes you’ll feel quite comfortable when you return from your local excursions. This condo is only one and a half blocks from the beach and two blocks from the village. Families with children will appreciate the condo’s proximity to the local park and recreation center with space to run around and climb on the jungle gym. Travelers keen on staying in shape will enjoy walking and jogging in this area as well as the nearby basketball courts, tennis courts and weight room—all a part of the La Jolla recreation center just a block and a half away.

The additional touches in this unit will be much appreciated. The high definition television in the living room has surround sound and a dock for your iPod. A desk for office work is provided in the den. Just off of the master bedroom one finds a walk-in closet and a shady, secluded, wood deck. Such little delights are but the beginning when your La Jolla vacation starts here.

About Dean Harvey

I live in Pasadena and grew up in the area. Graduated from Cal State LA in 1986. I am a Mortgage Loan Consultant for the last 28 years for a major Bank.

Dean Harvey purchased this condo in 2006

Why Dean Harvey chose San Diego

My wife and I enjoy La Jolla and sneak away as often as we can to take the ocean sunsets, live music and wonderful restaurants. From our condo we can walk everywhere.

What makes this condo unique

We measure the quality of our lives by how many sunsets we can enjoy together. This condo allow us to toast to the sunset from our dinning room every night. We like to kayak at La Jolla Shores and enjoy the fresh sea breeze from our front window.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

When staying in La Jolla, you have to experience 245 Prospect. What a great location and condo. The 1st floor condo looks just like the pictures and more. Every imaginable kitchen gadget and comfort is made available to you. You wake up in the morning and are greeted by the ocean view all the while relaxing with a cup of Joe in that Barcelona chair by the window. The best part is the .8 mile easy walk to La Jolla Shores where most of the restaurants and shopping are located. After you have had your fill of food and drink, the walk back to the Condo embraces you in the beautiful residential neighborhood leaving all the noise behind. Dean ushers you in by recommending a glass of wine and a walk around the corner to Coast Road watching the evening tidal pools. The ocean, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the restaurants-everything is a small walk away. Every convenience, including a great barbecue, is there for you to enjoy. Dean thought of everything!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (husband and 3 children) vacationed here from Arizona. We loved the area! It was a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The home was spacious and clean with all amenities including beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. Dean was very hands on and responsive. I would highly recommend this rental home.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our California vacation began in LaJolla and we were very happy with this condo. It was clean, in a great neighborhood, close to the beach, nice views of the ocean, close to grocery stores and restaurants, plus the location made it easy to get to the area attractions. The condo was well equipped for us to cook breakfast every day and large enough that none of us felt like we were in each other's way.

Dean was very attentive to our questions and gave us great tips on where to shop and eat.

We will definitely to stay here again.

Awesome family spring break in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the San Diego area and we really lucked out! La Jolla is fantastic! The condo was within a few minutes walk to the beach and to several restaurants, including the local brewery and The Taco Stand (not to be missed!) The front of the condo with the open family room, dinning room and kitchen had a full wall of windows that overlooked the ocean which was a real treat.

The garage in the lower level of the condo was a hidden luxury. Be sure to rent a small to mid-size car though! We rented a small jeep and it fit fine. Parking was a premium in La Jolla and the street is usually packed with cars. It was nice coming home each day and having a reserved spot to pull into.

We bought the 7-day pass to the Zoo, Safari and Sea World. The condo is an easy 20 minute drive to the Zoo or 15 minutes to Sea World. We'd typically head to the Zoo in the mornings and didn't have any issues with traffic. We'd leave early and spend 3-4 hours at one of these parks, and then leave to grab lunch.

We'd go back to the condo for the afternoon to play at the beach or explore La Jolla. One day we saw a whale along the coast which was pretty cool. Our kids are 10 and 13 and they had no trouble walking the loop from the Tide Pools to La Jolla Cove, then back to the condo. It was nice walking out from the condo without worrying about where to park.

We highly recommend the USS Midway. Be prepared to spend half a day there at least! We were in San Diego for 9 days total and never ran out of things to do. Overall it was one of our favorite spring break vacations.

Dean was a great host and even stopped by one day to say hi. He was very responsive and answered any questions we had immediately. I highly recommend his condo!

Perfect condo for relaxing in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dean's condo for a week and had a great time relaxing in La Jolla. The place is really lovely, very spacious and well laid out, and the big windows make it bright and airy and perfect for enjoying the California weather!

The condo was really well equipped, it was a nice surprise to find useful things like sandwich bags, plastic wrap and hand soap, so we didn't have to buy any supplies like this. We ended up eating in almost every night as it was so easy and was great to be able to watch the sunset over the ocean right from the living room. Having the beach chairs and umbrellas provided was also great and we took them to the beach a few times, it's less than a 5 minute walk to a small quiet beach perfect for enjoying the sun, surf and the tide pools. The weather was really warm the week we were there so the air conditioning in the condo was also lovely to have.

We didn't have a car the week we were there but it wasn't an issue. The condo is a little further than I had imagined from the center of La Jolla (it's about a 15-20 minute walk to the main restaurant/shopping area) but it's very do-able and you can walk all the way right alongside the ocean which we did many times, it's a lovely walk. The grocery store is also a 15-20 minute walk away but also very easy (and the store is huge and has everything you could want).

The check in process was really smooth, Dean provided lots of helpful information in advance, and although we had no need to call on him the week we were there he seemed very available for any questions. Instructions for things like the internet and TV were exactly where we were told they would be, and all worked perfectly. All in all was a lovely stay, would definitely consider staying here again if we were in La Jolla.

Great location and Responsive Hospitable Property Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this condo - it was nicely decorated and had everything we wanted to make our vacation comfortable, especially during the Christmas week. Dean was responsive and a great problem solver when we needed him. We would definitely rent from him again and would stay in his unit again.
