Perfect for exploring LJ

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Lisa are the best! Their vacation cottage is not fancy, but it is clean, comfortable, and has everything you would need for a stay in La Jolla. It is in a great location, central to most everything you would want to see and do in LJ, most of which is only a short walk away. The best part is that you won't find more accommodating, kind, helpful folks than Michael and Lisa. Did I say that Michael and Lisa are the BEST?! They are, trust me.

Well appointed and extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three nights while we toured LaJolla. The studio exceeded our expectations. There is a separate sleeping quarter, a small kitchen and a dining table for two. We sat outside on the lovely patio most of the time. We were asked to keep our voices down, so we decided not to invite guests to the patio. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was hot and quite lovely. Lisa was accommodating and friendly. We will be back!

Cozy, detailed, quiet, and adorable.

  • 5 of 5

Great cozy place. The owners are super sweet and helpful. They really tuned in to details. I wish I had know all of the details. I will not have packed so much. Lol. The only minor complaint if that would be the front door is not sealed tight. If that is even a complaint. I will look for the opportunity to stay here again next year. Thanks so much Lisa and Michael!

Everything was perfect and very clean. Loved the courtyard with beautiful foliage and hummingbirds.

  • 5 of 5

The town of La Jolla is outstanding with so much to offer in a great location. This home is located close to very beautiful beaches, restraunts/bars, upscale swanky movie theater, Vons grocery market, retail shopes, spa, and even a Sunday farmers market. The La Jolla Cove is very cool with plenty of adorable seals. My daughter and I spent 10days here and had a blast. We went to Catalina Island, Laguna Beach, Disneyland, San Diego Zoo, hiked Torrey Pines, Windandsea Beach, Pacific Beach, and even had a bonfire on the beach. I did a lot of research looking at many rentals and I am so glad we choose Michael & Lisa's apartment because everything was so perfect. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!
