We stayed in this lovely cottage for ten days over Christmas, 2016. We have come to La Jolla often over the years and have rented several properties, but this cozy cottage has gone to the top of our list. The cottage is even better than the photos on the website. It has a cozy, warm feeling, is tastefully furnished and decorated, and has everything you need to feel right at home. The artwork displayed, most done by the cottage owner, give the place a very personal feel. The gas fire place, on chilly Christmas season evenings, adds great charm to an already charming abode. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals from scratch or simply heat up take away items from nearby stores or restaurants. We ate breakfast in just about daily and prepared evening meals six out of the ten nights. We had lunch on warm days on the delightful, private patio.
The location of this cottage is perfect. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood, but is a five minute walk to stores and restaurants. Another 10 minutes and you are in the hustle and bustle of the heart of the village. This place gives you the best of both worlds.
The owner, Steve, assured a very efficient and prompt reservation/ payment process, gave us a warm welcome and thorough orientation to the cottage, and provided a very informative packet of information about the property and surrounding area.
This cottage has become our new favorite La Jolla destination and we can't wait to return.
My husband and I just got back from a fabulous trip to LaJolla! A big part of what it made it so great is this lovely cottage. It is perfect for two people. It is very well maintained and updated if you want to spend some relaxing time hanging out after a long day of sight seeing. It is stocked with all you need and more. Just a 10 minute quick walk to the beach and an even shorter one to great restaurants. Thank you Steve for letting us stay in your cottage, we made many beautiful memories we will have for a lifetime.
We stayed in this cottage over the Labor Day Weekend. It is a perfect cottage for a couple. The neighborhood was quiet. The only thing I heard in the morning was a crow. The location was close to beach, shopping, restaurants and recreation. The pictures were exactly spot on. There was even a bottle of wine and chocolates for us. That was a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable. There is an air conditioner in the cottage but unfortunately for us, it was a very hot weekend and the unit couldn't keep up with the unexpected heat wave. The ceiling fans did help. We do understand Steve can't control the weather. It's a great place and we will stay again. It's clean, quiet, charming and well equipped with everything you need for a nice getaway. Will recommend to friends.
We had a nice stay in this well appointed cottage located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Owners are next door, very responsive if questions or needs but allow you complete privacy. Patio with gas BBQ, nice landscaping, comfy furniture, all kitchen appliances, TV with netflix. House is very clean and perfectly maintained, looks just like the pictures. Short walk to grocery store, restaurants, great fish market right down the street and close-by farmer's market on Sunday (highly recommend). If you are looking to stay in La Jolla--this is a great option. We took a guided kayak tour with La Jolla Sea Kayaks. Take the early morning tour if you want less crowds. We had just 3 kayaks and sea lions popped up very close to us. We hiked in Torrey Pines State Reserve and enjoyed many walks on the beach!
We fell in love with Steve's cottage on first sight, and the feeling lingers even now that we're back home. We stayed for a month. It was the perfect getaway, with all the amenities we could have asked for. The patio was beautiful and secluded, and had a grill where we cooked most of our dinners. The kitchen was efficient and came stocked with dishes, pans, silverware, utensils, a blender, and more. There was a nice washer/dryer out in back. But more than the amenities was the overall comfort and cozy mood of the place, which made us feel at home as soon as we walked in.
We walked to the beach almost every day, tried various restaurants, took drives to Balboa Park, the Birch Aquarium, the Torrey Pines State Reserve, and more. Lots to see and do in the area, including an excellent shopping mall called University Towne Center which you can get to by bus if you don't feel like driving.
Steve was the perfect host -- there when we needed him, not when we didn't. We left feeling that we must return soon, and in fact are moving to La Jolla permanently in a few months.
Highly recommend this lovely spot. You won't want to leave!
My wife and I spent a week here and couldn't be happier with our choice, I lived in San Diego for 25 years and still know the area well, so I can say with confidence that if you are looking for a peaceful, comfortable place with all the conveniences as well as the best scenery and options for food and entertainment this is it. We left the car parked at home a lot of the time and just walked into town for everything we were looking for including yoga, a great bookstore, library, and mahi mahi... and of course the best stretch of coastline in Southern California. We enjoyed making meals at home as well. The cottage is kept in great condition and the bed is very comfortable. Steve was easy to work with and friendly. We didn't have any problems with the place at all and you can tell that they really care about maintaining it. We will be back too!
