La Jolla Shores is a beach and popular vacation/residential community of the same name in La Jolla, San Diego, California. The quaint La Jolla Shores business district is a relaxed, mixed-use village encircling Laureate Park, on Avenida de la Playa in the village of La Jolla Shores. The village has several fine dining restaurants as well as plenty of casual dining places, shops, and a few galleries. You can take surf lessons and rent surfboards, boogie boards, paddle boards, and wetsuits from Surf Diva. Kayak, snorkel, and bike tours and rentals are available at San Diego Bike and Kayak.

The beach is approximately one mile long and stretches from the sea cliffs just north of La Jolla Cove to Black’s Beach south of Torrey Pines State Park. The Shores meets the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus and Kellogg Park (with a playground right next to the beach), encompasses the Scripps Pier and borders the San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve to the south. The beach is a popular launch point for kayakers and has a swimming area only and a surfing only area.

Sea World, Downtown Gaslamp District, PetCo Park, San Diego Zoo, Qualcomm Stadium, Mission Bay, San Diego Bay, and the Airport are all within a 10-15 minute drive.

Great Beach house! Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for adults with small children.The location is perfect, the beach is within walking distance. The house is beautiful and had more amenities than we could imagine.The owner provided PLENTY of beach towels and beach toys for our use. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, we enjoyed grilling in the backyard and roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. The large living and the outdoor space are very spacious perfect for a large family to not feel so crowed. The rental does not use VRBO to book directly through but the owner is very responsive and all went well. Besides traffic (which was not terrible) the place was quiet and the bedroom blinds were great for keeping the early morning light out as well. We look forward to staying here again!!

Labor Day weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Location location location!!! My husband and I rented this house for a long weekend. It was perfect! Parking is always a hassle at the beach, so it was great to be in walking distance. Never having to worry about a parking spot....The house was great! Had plenty of room, linens, dishes, beautiful backyard, ect. We bought our Goldendoodle Willie with us and he felt right at home. The managers of the property are fabulous, very helpful, and close by. We rent houses all the time on vacation and I would say they were the best by far on top of things and making sure we were happy. I would highly recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a great getaway from a busy life and a small walk straight down to a perfect beach.

Great out-door/in-door living

  • 5 of 5

The back yard is a highlight with its lush landscape; outdoor shower (imp for washing off the beach sand) & the patio furniture around the out-door gas fire-pit. We spent many evenings drinking & chatting every night after our day's activities. We had a 14 month old in the group and it was baby compatible with its included high chair & pack n play. The house is very nicely outfitted & walking close to the beach. The front yard has large trees to obscure the busy street & noise. We know La Jolla & knew La Jolla Shores is a busy street. We enjoyed a fabulous stay & would rent this house again!!!

Close to beach, great for big family

  • 3 of 5

Great stay. Used as a base for beach days and SeaWorld trip w/ grandparents,their kids/spouses and kids. Beds comfortable and plenty of hot water for bathing. Outdoor shower great for rinsing off from beach. Great for all to have their own space and gather in the dining or living areas.

We will likely stay here again but there are some things which may be helpful to know.........

Upstairs you need to close windows or be a heavy sleeper as the street noise is pretty loud.

CAUTION for kids: There is a small dark pond by the front door with a grate that mostly covers it but is a hazard for small ones. Property is on a busy street with no gate/fence so you must keep an eagle eye on kids as there are many exits to front yard from the house and backyard so you might think they are in the back or in a bedroom and suddenly they are rolling down the driveway on their scooter to the street with cars going by at 40mph. No fault of the property of course but be aware.

Bed/Bath: 3 on main floor, 1 master suite upstairs

Mainfloor: King/shower only,Queen/shower only,King/soaker tub/shower combo

Upstairs: King/claw-foot tub and separate shower

Minor cons: Dishwasher wasn't working properly and was reported. Only stayed three days so it wasn't a big deal. Expected #linens=#people but they were short on washcloths---again not a big deal but should be addressed. The house needs a spring cleaning---cobwebs on the ceiling in the living room, grill was dirty.

We enjoyed staying at this property and will likely do so again. The location and space was great for us.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear this family would like to return but are a little surprised by their review. We have been renting the home for 4 ½ years and have never had anyone mention anything about road noise. We also have a lot of friends that own homes on this street and have never heard them comment about noise. The pond mentioned is not a pond at all. It’s a 1 ft. by 3 ft. box that has a cover. It did have gold fish in it at one time but is now empty. It is very unusual to have a gated front yard on this street. The home sits back quite a ways from the street and is a great space for children to play and for families to sit a watch them. The backyard is completely gated and is the best place for children to play if parents are not going to supervise them. The dishwasher was replaced with a brand new stainless steel one. When it was reported to us we had a serviceman over the next day. Also, when we were notified about the shortcomings of the washcloths, new ones were delivered that same day. Homes at the beach do get a little dustier quicker than those away from the beach. This home is thoroughly cleaned after each guests departure and deep cleaned very often as well.

Great house for 8 people!

  • 5 of 5

My college roommates and I rented this house in January and it was perfect! Including our wives, there were 8 of us and the house was set up very well for us. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and the living room and kitchen were large enough to accommodate us. The house is very clean and updated well. In addition, the location is great in that it is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and a short drive to the bars and restaurants of La Jolla or Torrey Pines.

All in all, I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you have a larger group!
