Comfortable accommodations for large group!

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our team! We were able to spread out in the 2 houses, cook meals together and enjoy down time together between racing at the Crew Classic. I would highly recommend this property for teams, large families or families vacationing together. It's also conveniently located and includes plenty of parking.

A great week in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I rented this place for a family vacation (and an event) with both of our parents and relatives. There were 17 of us in total staying at both the Blue House (The little Lodge) and the Summer House. We were there for 6 nights. The place is extremely spacious and great for big family. The beach and stores are within walking distance. This made it easy for everyone to have their own schedule and do their own things when we were not around. The owner, Dan, was extremely flexible with us in terms of checking out the place before renting, check in, getting keys etc. He even checked in with us after we settled in on the first night to make sure we had everything. The place is old but it was cleaned, and the kitchen was equipped with everything you need for cooking family meal. There is a big yard in between the two houses and we used it for an event of about 60 people. The event was in our rental contract and we worked with Dan for proper set-up and requirements. It was easy because Dan organizes his own event every year.

Our Family's LaJolla Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family rented both beach houses for a week! It was close to the beach...but LaJolla shores has free public parking so we actually loaded cars with gear and drove everyday! It is a great's close to busy streets but we didn't mind. We had many fun games of hide and seek in the homes...which was a blast...there are a lot of nooks and crannies around! The owner was kind, and helpful!

We had the perfect family get-a-way!

Very solid

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for our rowing team. We had a bunch of Olympic athletes and National team athletes, all very tall and such. We had 23 people on the property and everyone just about had a bed. If you are trying to get a large crowd under one roof that is in walking distance to the beach and that is fairly priced, this is probably the best spot in San Diego. La Jolla is as good as it gets as far as location goes. The owner is as helpful as can be. He was available to assist with any property issues as needed. The hotels were clean, hot and had fresh water for our stay. We will for sure rent this property again next year.

My 6 brothers 2 nephews and me rented one of the houses for Super Bowl weekend. We were there for 4 nights. We are all 6'3 are taller; the place was very spacious and accommodating. The owner was super nice and very responsive to our request! The beach was within walking distance;It was the perfect setting for a Super Bowl get-a-way! We are hoping to rent both homes for an event in the near future!!

50th Birthday Party

  • 5 of 5

We rented both houses the weekend of October 24, 2014 for my brothers 50th Birthday. Myself along with other family members (15 in total) had a wonderful/excellent time. The owner was not intrusive and is very friendly. both homes were quite accommodating. We had the freedom and the privacy we were looking for and the beach was not far away. We had so much fun, the 4 day weekend went by to fast. We can't wait to return again soon. I highly recommend these vacation properties.

Owner's Response: Michael and Dimintia, we're glad that you and your family had a fun time at "The Grounds". As you noted, this is ideal for fun weekend get-aways, with the multiple BBQ areas, hot tubs, fire circle, volleybally court and "The Jungle Bar". I'm honored that we could host a family of veterns and provide a good place for you to be together and celebrate these special times. I hope to see you back for your brother's 51st birthday, or your "29th". - Dan
