Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this perfect beach cottage and plan to come back again and again! It is a perfect size for our family of 4, and walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The owners are very accommodating, easy to communicate with, and overall provide a great experience. The house is clean, well designed, stocked kitchen with amenities, beach towels and chairs, and a firepit which is my favorite! I highly recommend this property!

Beautiful Property. Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The rental process, the property, and the experience were all perfect. Everything was exactly as expected and in fact exceeded our expectations. I also cannot overstate how wonderful Marilyn was to work with. We chose the property because it was close to the venue of my daughter's wedding, so I cannot say that I would stay there again, but only because I don't know that we will likely visit the area again anytime soon. But I would absolutely recommend that anyone one wishing to stay ANYWHERE in the greater La Jolla consider this property. It was spotless upon our arrival. The furnishings and amenities were also first rate. And, again, one could not find a more perfect location to experience all that this community has to offer. While there may be properties that are less expensive, compared to hotels, and the experience you get, I found it very reasonable, and I can't imagine you could be more comfortable anywhere else.

Lovely VRBO rental in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

This lovely vacation rental was exactly as advertised - well appointed home in a great location - very comfortable beds with high quality pillows and linens. Marilyn was most attentive and replied speedily to all of our questions. It’s very close to a beautiful beach and good restaurants and in a quiet neighbourhood. We loved the home and would definitely recommend this rental.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described and more! Blocks from the beach and across the street from a wonderful breakfast spot! We stayed here with our two teenagers and everyone had a wonderful time. The house is clean, modern, and beautifully decorated. Marilyn was very responsive and friendly! We will be back!

Lovely poperty !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we hoped it would be. A block from the beach and restaurants. It was a bonus to stay where a garage was provided . As La Jolla is a very busy place and finding a parking spot can be difficult at times. Highly recommended.
