Nice Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay, far too short, the cottage was so perfectly and generously equipped, you thought of

everything, especially grateful for t.v. instructions, restaurant gift certificate, just all the extras were so great

and the cottage was so perfectly appointed and immaculate. We loved it!

Regards, Jim

My stay was for medical purposes and the space and surrounding area brightened my spirits everyday for the 10 weeks. The place has everything you need, great lighting, designated parking area & private outdoor space. Walked to any number of great restaurants, juice bars, diners and taco stands & coffee shops everywhere. A full gym, grocery store, CVS all within walking distance. If you want you could walk to buy a Lamborghini or a R.Royce, crazy area. Really never needed the car except to explore. Best of all were the walks along LaJolla's coast including Wind N Sea beaches just 10 minutes away. Steve as the host was forever helpful while providing privacy. The pictures just don't quite do it will be pleased.

Wonderful stay and host!

  • 5 of 5

I totally agree with Richard E. and Jennifer! My wife and I so enjoyed this lovely property and wonderful host Steve! We have stayed at many VRBO's but have enjoyed this one the most! We appreciated the quiet location, and it being so close to the downtown area and short 10 minute walk to the beach. We really enjoyed the Harbor Seals of the children's pool and Sea Lions at LaJolla Cove. So many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. My meetings were at a nearby hotel that I drove to, but am so glad my wife was in this wonderful cottage and location. It is always so nice to have a functional, well supplied kitchen and laundry facilities. We would feel blessed to be able to return one day! Thank you Steve for making this wonderful place! We so enjoyed working with you!

New La Jolla Favorite

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect place for couples!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.
