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.

Perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

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!

Love at first sight

  • 5 of 5

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!

Everything we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for me when I stayed for a week recently for a personal retreat. The owner was a perfect host who helped me when I needed something but left me to enjoy my privacy. The location is terrific for access to many restaurants, markets and most importantly the beautiful beach area where a 5 minute walk lets you see the Children's pool where the seals take a suntan. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to enjoy the beauty of LaJolla while having a private and comfortable place to stay with all of the amenities of a home. Thanks Steve!
