Overview

La Jolla Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms - 1 bath, SLEEPS 4 MAXIMUM

Adorable 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom original redwood California beach house truly just 1/4 block to world famous Windansea Beach! - great for swimming, surfing, sunning - very picturesque and often used for surf competitions, fashion photo shoots and movie filming. Windansea is a popular beach, though not touristy and retains its local flavor.

The Aloha Beach House in an older historical with a renovated bathroom and kitchen and furnished with charming Real Hawaiian-Style decor. Light, bright, airy. Enchanting brick patio with tropical landscaping and large lanai deck area, complete with comfortable patio furniture - perfect for summer night barbecues!

HDTV, phone, Internet, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor BBQ, towels, boogie boards, etc.

Windansea beach is just a 20 minute walk from downtown La Jolla, with world-class restaurants, exclusive boutiques, a wonderful art museum. Great dining and shopping within a 1 - 2 block area.

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE ONLINE 'INSTANT QUOTE' on the HomeAway site does not take into consideration variables that effect the ultimate pricing, such as: numbers of guests, longer-term stays, tax included or not, etc. This is a private property, not part of a corporation or agency.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your place is lovely. It truly reminds me of the time when I lived in Hawaii. Our stay here is so nice. We love this area and your place/surroundings so much. I don't want to think that tomorrow is our last day.



We will have only good memories leaving here."

Great Times!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my wife and I. We retired and moved to the Rockies, but our kids live in L.A. so we needed a place where they could visit. The kids and grandkids had a great time at the beach, one of the best around San Diego. We entertained quite a bit, and the cottage was perfect for small dinner parties. The cottage is very close to great restaurants in La Jolla. Clean and relaxing, with the best sunsets this side of Hawaii. Lee is a great host. We miss it and will return.

Loved it all

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was just fabulous. We could not have asked for a better place and surroundings. Your place is decorated in great vintage Aloha spirit and includes all of what one needs.

Lee and Alba were wonderful and were welcoming throughout. We could have easily stayed longer as everything felt just like home.

Thank you so much and we will certainly stay again in hopefully near future.

Aloha,

Susanne, Ute, Enzio and Nikolai

Sweet, cozy beach cottage is a gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three week stay at this clean, charming, well-located home. The owner went above and beyond to help us out (we had an unexpected need of immediate lodging upon our move to San Diego) and she was responsive to our request and got us in the place quickly. The location is lovely within easy walking distance of the beach for beautiful sunsets and rock and beach exploring that thrilled our three year old. The house itself was well kept and we had everything we needed in the kitchen, better than average for your standard rental. Quiet and private, we had breakfast outside most days on the deck/patio. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting us or if we just want an in San Diego vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jenessa for taking the time to post such a lovely review, especially since you were busy in the transition of moving. So glad the Aloha Beach House worked out well for your family during that time and you were able to enjoy it as a bit of a vacation! All the best to you in your newest life's chapter. Lee

Best Getaway ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had just sold our home in San Diego and needed a get away place before we moved into our next place. It was perfect! Clean, cozy, well decorated, so close to the best beach and comfortable! This cottage had everything we needed and a close to walk to restaurants. We want to come back soon! Lee was a fantastic host and helped us settle in nicely.

Overall a great value and enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I along with our 14 month old spent one pleasent week in this cottege. Lee, the owner, was very pleasent and friendly. She even called one morning to be sure we knew about the local farmers market going on that day - it turned out to be a great event and we stocked up on delicious, fresh food to bring back to the cottege. The unit was very family friendly and reasonably safe for toddlers. Bathroom provided more than adequate space and the shower was beautifully redone with lots of water pressure and hot water. The only downsides were the few ants that kept returning to the kitchen despite our care in keeping it clean (I just wiped them up each morning and evening and didn't bother to call Lee about it), the master bed was far too soft for our comfort, and the payment was a hassel compared to other properies we have rented in the past. All that was overshadowed by Lee's warm hospitality, the 2 minute stroll to the beach, the exclusive location, and the general cleanliness/comfort of the unit. In comparing this to other vbro listings, and having spent one week here, I feel this rental offers a solid value.

Owner's Response: Thank you Allison for taking the time to write a review. You and your family did seem to be having a wonderful time! I apologize for the 'few ants', and as you say, I was not aware of them. The property next door was redoing their landscaping, so that was the culprit. Something unavoidable, I'm afraid. There have been nothing but positive comments about the relatively new mattress (even with longer-term renters) but if in the future I find more people feel as you did I will make a change. All the best with that absolutely adorable baby girl of yours!! She's a delight :-) Lots of Aloha, Lee
