4th time, still amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this wonderful beach home 4 summers. We have made many beautiful memories with our 2 sons (now 6 and 4), extended family, and we consider this spot a home away from home. We appreciate the owner's (Rick and Marsha) hospitality and kindness. It is a lovely location, and we look forward to another stay in the future.

A Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in February and can only echo the positive comments of other visitors! The owners are very pleasant and most attentive if needed. One casual mention from them was the #30 bus line that runs about a 1/2 block away. It's a great way to travel to downtown La Jolla or Pacific Beach and not have to worry about parking. We had a lovely time.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a repeat visit, and we'll be back. My husband and I love the Windansea neighborhood and the house, and it is roomy enough for our grown son, his wife and 6 year old child to visit from San Francisco if their schedules allow. The house is so clean and well stocked. The owners are particularly pleasant and helpful!

Nice Vacation in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

I would like to review this house and I am going to give it 5 stars because some people might think it is 5 stars and I certainly don't want to be the only person who doesn't give it 5, however, I probably would give it 4.

Our family of six stayed here for one week in July. We have three teen daughters (18, 16 and 14) and a 2.5 yo son.

The cottage is lovely. It was MUCH larger than I thought it would be. There was plenty of room for the six of us to sleep in the two bedrooms. I didn't ask my teen daughters, but the main queen bed was SUPER comfortable. This home was also extremely clean and we really appreciated that. The gardens are wonderfully kept and great to spend time outside on the back patio. They had everything we needed including fully stocked kitchen, bath and shower towels and everything you need to take to the beach. The owners are super lovely people and were easy to work with.

Here are the things that I would have liked to know before I got there. The cottage was on a very busy and popular street so on the weekend, people walked by talking late into the night and early morning. As you need the windows open in the summer, that was hard to sleep. You can hear everything at your neighbors homes... like them blending their drinks and opening their frig (as I am sure they could hear us). There is no designated parking and having a large family and a minivan, we often had to walk kind of far back to the cottage... but we did always find parking on the actual street. The home is smoke free, but the owners smoke had a tendency to drift through the house with all the windows open. They live behind the home, directly above the hot tub is their deck...good to know if you think you are getting a private hot tub... we have teens so that was not a problem for us at all. I was also caught outside having morning coffee in my PJs when one of them walked by which was a little awkward since I didn't know they would be walking through the cottage yard.

We would stay here again as our vacation was great. My two year old called it "my beach house" and my teen daughters loved the fact that their room was behind two separate doors (bedroom door and hallway had a door) so that they could sleep in without being disturbed by their little brother, the beach access, hot tub and overall vacation.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disturbed with the street noise. This is a beach community and homes are in close proximity. Although our deck is in the back, the spa is not visible and is private. We enjoyed having your family. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five from Minnesota had a great stay at this charming home. It was the perfect size, was well stocked with everything needed, and was a perfect short walk from the beach. We appreciated such a homey place to come home to after our day excursions to Torrey Pines Beach, Mission Bay, La Jolla Cove, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, USS Midway, and Coronado Island. So much to do and see! After a long, cold Minnesota winter, it was the perfect way to get a spring back in our step! We are reaching 70 degrees in Minneapolis this week, but we miss the La Jolla sunsets and the beautiful Pacific Coast. Thank you Marsha and Rick for being gracious hosts.
