This cute condo is just two blocks from the beach and on the same street as many delicious restaurants. It's clean, has off-street parking, and comfortable beds. What more could you want?!

Condo La Jolla Shores

  • 5 of 5

I have two teenage sons one who I just took to college as a freshman he is a moderate surfer and wanted to go to Southern California for his graduation present I also have a sixteen year old son who wanted his brother to teach him how to surf. We decided to try La Jolla as my husband had recently been out there on business we live in Charlotte NC. Brant talked me into this condo because of the location to La Jolla Shores and everything so close by like restaurants and Surf Diva. It was absolutely the perfect location in La Jolla shores and the nicest condo I have rented in the past several years. It was truly a dream vacation for me and my family. The surfing was amazing especially Windan Sea which was ten minutes away and La Jolla shores was a great place for the younger brother to learn how to surf. We loved our clean condo that had everything we could possibly need including five surf boards and a wet suit. At night we ate at all the wonderful Italian restaurants right around the corner they were all wonderful. We definetly recommend this fabulous condo to anyone it was perfect for the four of us, can't wait to get back next summer I have already told all my friends on the east coast.

Fantastic Memorial Day Weekend Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo over Memorial Day weekend. My brother-in-law (Navy Veteran) and family came to visit Southern California and greater San Diego was our destination of choice. All told we had four adults and three young children. This place was EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED.

Friday was our travel day from Los Angeles and we arrived here(after stopping at In'N'Out of course) to a CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS place. We own mid-size Honda cars so we caravaned down in two cars and arrived here with TWO PARKING SPACES available! The kitchen had all the items we needed, which was important since our families enjoy preparing food. The beach was literally 'STEPS AWAY' so we unpacked and headed over right away before returning to have a BARBEQUE. The bbq was on the patio surrounded by bamboo!

Saturday we toured the USS MIDWAY. During the tour we actually met a WWII Navy Veteran involved in storming the beach on D-Day(June 6, 1944). Wow!! We made the drive up to MT. SOLEDAD on our return to the condo. This place had EASY ACCESS TO AND FROM INTERSTATE 5 so traffic really wasn't an issue during our stay.

Sunday was BEACH DAY for our families so we packed up our gear and walked 'AROUND THE CORNER', literally. Our three children had a blast playing on the beach and in the ocean. After the beach we had another bbq on Sunday and this time my wife's uncle stopped by to supply us with fresh fruit and meats. Needless to say, the kitchen and bbq worked well, again, with many people prepping and cooking all the food. The dining room table was large enough to hold our large spread of goodies which made our last night there very ful-FILLING (pun intended).

As a parent of an almost two year-old child, the set-up of this place was very "child-proof " in that there weren't many things our child could grab or break, etc. The place was very toddler-friendly and the place is gated.

In all, we snapped hundreds of photos and will always cherish our memories of our fantastic Memorial Day 2015 vacation! We were lucky to have stayed at such a nice place and are greatful to VRBO/the owners on making this a great, smooth, no-worries experience. :)

This Condo Made Out Trip

  • 5 of 5

This condo was an outstanding value for its amenities and location. You cannot beat it. It was wonderful to walk into a very clean and welcoming home after a full day's drive. Having the underground parking was such a blessing given the pack jammed streets. Location was perfect. The beach is around the corner, local shops were a few steps away, and San Diego attractions are within a 20 minute drive. Received our deposit back in a timely manner. Highly recommend staying here when you visit San Diego.

This condo exceeded our expectations. This condo was so cute and comfortable that we tried to book for an extra 2 weeks. The location is a stones throw from what I was told was the prettiest beach in San Diego and I have to agree. There is also a great children's park adjacent to the beach. The parking is under the building but we rarely ventured very far. We highly recommend the restaurants less then 5 minute walk from Condo. The kitchen has everything you could need and we did cook in as well as barbecued on the back patio. We plan on returning and renting again. We highly recommend this rental.

Not recommended

  • 2 of 5

I have vacationed in La Jolla Shores for 20 years. During that time, I have owned and rented property so I am very familiar with the rental market.

We arrived at 4:00 p.m. to find the cleaning crew still working on the property. There was no toilet paper, hand soap or tissues. I texted the owner who said she would “send some over to get us started.” I’ve never rented a property and expected to bring toilet paper, hand soap or tissues.

There is a sign on the refrigerator listing arbitrary “fines” that are clearly outside the terms of the rental contract. Although I was charged a cleaning fee in the rental agreement, apparently the cleaning crew doesn’t really clean. Fines were listed for not stripping the beds [a job that the cleaning crew should do], fines for not emptying all the garbage cans [again, cleaning crew], fines for not cleaning the BBQ grill [cleaning crew]; fines for not removing the dishes from the dishwasher on the last day. This probably explains why the dishes had food and lip prints on them. Prior tenants just replaced the dirty dishes in the cupboards rather washing them in the dishwasher as they left and then have fines levied against them.

A list of the properties other problems: the air conditioning blows hot air; the refrigerator freezes the food; you can’t take a shower in both bathrooms at the same time because the hot water flows to only one bathroom at a time; the television in the master bedroom does work and isn’t connected to any cable network [as stated in a previous renter comment] and the patio pictured in the listing is in the back of the condo off the master bedroom wedged between three buildings and offering no privacy. Renters should be aware that the property is squeezed between three other condo buildings and there is noise day and night from barking dogs, remodeling and construction crews and unhappy children.

I was going to contact the owner but I found a couple of notes from previous tenants in the visitor book that recounted the same problems and the owner’s lack of interest. In other words, there are far too many problems to believe there is any management or oversight of this property.

I texted the owner when I left asking when my security deposit would be returned. Her response, “I usually get around to it within two weeks.” It actually took three weeks and clearly “getting around to it” seems to be something the owner hasn’t done with this property.

Owner's Response: We were shocked to see this review. It is unfortunate that the cleaning crew was still there when this guest arrived @ 4:00 and they did not restock supplies. That crew has been replaced. The only time during your stay that we had any correspondence was pertaining to the supplies, which we addressed immediately and profusely apologized for. In regard to this renter's other derogatory remarks, the condo does not have air conditioning, and was not advertised as such, a subject never inquired about prior to signing contract. Every vacation rental company has a list of check out instructions, including fines for not following them. As per the contract, we have three weeks to return deposits and try to get them back as soon as possible. This guest not only received it before the 3 week deadline but also cashed it so we do not understand that issue. Since this guest said she lived in La Jolla Shores for 20 years, she should know that it is a beach community, with many summer visitors ... mostly families with young children. La Jolla in general is a very "dog friendly" town with many shop owners and residents leaving out water and sometimes treats for them. Given her familiarity with the "Shores" she should also know that the building is the same distance apart as all others. This is not a single family residence, and was not advertised as such. In fact, this building has only three units, which is far less than most in the immediate vicinity. If this guest wanted "peace & quiet" she obviously chose the wrong location. It is a community catering to active, fun-loving people, both residents and visitors. If you look at all of the previous reviews, you will see how many people love our condo and the location. In fact, the family that visited right after this family thanked us for such wonderful accommodations and locale. It is unfortunate that there isn't a site to check out and review renters. We would have declined this guest, as well as our realtor, who handles approximately twenty properties will decline her in the future.
