This was our first house rental and what a great experience! Cay was very patient & reassuring with me! The house was great - roomy with such comfortable beds and well stocked pantry. There were beach chairs and boogey boards - all great because this property is really close to the beach! We loved the outdoor sitting areas. The whole trips was just awesome and far too short. The house was perfect for or three generations. I cannot imagine staying in a hotel ever again. Thank you Cay!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, quiet little oasis. I had made all the arrangements so my family was pleasantly surprised when we arrived and walked into the patio area. We all loved it. Within minutes, my 15 year old Grandson headed to the beach with his Grandfather, while my daughter and I went to Von's for our groceries. Kitchen is well stocked, there's a grill we used for the nights we dined in. Everything is a stone's throw away. It is perfect for vacation with so much to do in the area. We were in the area for a family wedding, but managed to go to the three closest beaches. The listing is accurate and the manager Cay gave us the assurance that all we needed to do was unpack. Beach chairs, towels, even sand toys are provided. We want to go back already. It was hard to leave.

This house was perfect for our 3-generation family. The enclosed outside space (front and back) provided the little ones a play area that was safe and contained. We used the Weber grill several times and ate many of our meals outside. The kitchen was so well equipped with dishes, utensils, pots and pans that it met our every need. It was large enough for several of us to work in it at the same time. The two baths were spotless--as was the rest of the house--and the third bedroom worked well for us. The house felt spacious and airy. The beach was about a five minute walk, no need to take your car. The owner made sure we had her number just in case we needed anything. I sure hope we can come back to this great vacation rental!

Everything as described

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here Sunday Nov 2 until Thursday the 6th. Nice, clean and very comfortable. Had everything we needed.

The beach is only a couple hundred feet away and a great place for morning or evening strolls.

We had a great time Cay. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

The perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days on a short vacation here. We have 2 girls ages 4 and 8. We couldn't imagine a much better location and place for a family on a budget in La Jolla. This cottage is huge, way bigger than the pictures show. It's stocked with just about everything you would need for beach trips. We visited 3 different beaches and numerous restaurants throughout the area and found the location to be ideal. Our girls absolutely loved this place and are still talking about the beach house. We felt safe, secure and had just an incredible time. Thanks so much Cay!

Great experience in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in the cottage while we attended a wedding in San Diego. It was a great place to base from for our too-short four days. Enjoyed the beaches nearby, and wished we could have stayed a little longer. Transactions were swift and clear, five-stars for Cay.
