The beach with its’ grass-roofed shack that dates back to the early 1940's and is designated as a National Landmark, enjoys a colorful history involving the quintessential California surfing and beach culture integrated into the exclusive high-end community of La Jolla.

I grew up here in this idyllic place and even though my life has taken me all over the world I always consider this home. Windansea is a special place with awesome surfing, swimming and the most beautiful sunsets in the world. La Jolla is truly a gem that is always in my heart.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003
Thank you for letting us stay in your cozy cottage! We loved it and had a great time in La Jolla! The perfect get-away for us and we do enjoyed the wonderful walks along the ocean.
Thanks Cathleen for making us feel welcome and all your suggestions.
Highlight of our trip was Osteria Romantica restaurant down near La Jolla Shores.
For the past three years, my husband and I have been spending our winters in La Jolla and were truly happy with the choice we made this year. Kristina's cottage is absolutely beautiful and extremely clean which is a must for us. The bedroom is quite spacious, sunny and very comfortable while the kitchen is roomy and nicely stocked. We were there for three months and I love baking so this was the perfect place for us! Not only is the location ideal but it's also very quiet and safe and you have your own parking space right behind the cottage. It's only a few steps from Windansea beach and a short walk to the village which is filled with workout places, boutiques and restaurants. You can also walk to the Farmer's market on Sunday morning and grab a bite to eat while watching local entertainment. During our long stay, we did encounter a small plumbing issue and after communicating with Cathleen, the property manager, it was taken care of immediately. Any questions or needs were always handled promptly. We did however have a brief altercation with Cathleen. She sometimes spoke to us in a condescending way but after addressing the issue with her and Kristina, it immediately got resolved.
We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our time in beautiful La Jolla. We definitely recommend this adorable cottage to anyone looking for the perfect vacation spot!
Light, airy cottage. Well maintained. Look forward to going back!
We came to San Diego to visit family and to escape the Ohio winter for awhile and we found the perfect place!
The cottage is spotlessly clean, bright, well- furnished and with a fully stocked kitchen. A private parking space
is a nice bonus. And then there's the location! You're a block away from a gorgeous beach and walking distance to the village with a wide choice of great restaurants and shops. We also enjoyed walking to the public library and the Sunday morning farmers market! And La Jolla must be the best location in Southern California; it's an easy drive to Balboa Park and downtown, also not far from the desert, great hiking at Torrey Pines State Park.
The cottage is surprisingly roomy, as a couple we didn't feel cramped at all.
Special thanks to Cathleen, the manager, for keeping the place in such good shape and for being such a great
resource! We highly recommend the cottage and would definitely stay here again!
The owner needs a new greeter. When we arrived after a long day of travel we were greeted with move your car out of the driveway and into the back alley as if we should have known. We were subjected to a thorough review of all rules that went on and on as if we were teenagers. We were told if any spots were found on the couch our deposit would be kept. Not a fun way to begin a trip with so much caution and anxiety about the place. After the "greeter" left we had a great time.
We couldn't have been more happy with our selection of this place, especially in the month of February considering we made the trip from frigid Minneapolis. The proximity to the beach and the cleanliness/amenities of the place made it a thoroughly enjoyable stay for us. It is in the residential area of La Jolla so it is very quiet and safe and yet so close to a bunch of good restaurants and the La Jolla village. It is a perfect size place for a couple and my 7 month pregnant wife thoroughly enjoyed it. Cathleen was also very helpful in giving us pointers on places to go see, eat, etc. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a perfect vacation location/place in San Diego ... LA JOLLA is the place to be for sure!!
