We have been doing this family trip to visit my mom (Grandma) for almost a decade now and we have stayed all over La Jolla Shores... By far (!!!) this place has been the best and all of our favorite."

Love Love Love La Jolla Shores Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 months and just loved this cottage. It is very comfortable with 2 outdoor spaces that we used all of the time. The hummingbirds visit the courtyard water feature every morning and evening. The beds, bedding and towels are super comfy.

Very close to the beach and great restaurants. Only a little over a mile to La Jolla Cove and village We didn't have a car for most of the time and took Lyft all over San Diego. There are a number of adventure outfitters here for biking, surfing, kayaking, etc. Marilyn is great! I would stay here again anytime.

Beautiful La Jolla Shores Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place to stay! Just steps to the beach, shopping and dinning. A place you'll certainly want to go back to visit. Modern and new meet tradition and casually luxurious - worth every penny!!

We had a fine time

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in the lovely cottage a number of times now. It is wonderfully located, very comfortable, decorated with great taste and "livability:. Once again, the beach access, local restaurants, and general ambiance lived up to the expectations that we had.

Our previous stays have been without any problems. "Things happen", and there were several property problems that came up on this stay. The only reason I bring this up in a review is that Marilyn and Greg, despite being out of the country for the bulk of our stay, were in rapid communication with us and with the people they had on board to service the issues that needed attention. So my purpose in reviewing is not to discuss problems that arose -- something has to happen to someone at some time --- but to emphasize the fact that the owners were "on it" and saw to it that the issues were rapidly, efficiently, and pleasantly resolved. My point is that, in addition to providing a charming and comfortable environment, the owners are pleasantly, rapidly and efficiently responsive to resolving any issues that come up. We are certainly looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: This is the very first time we didn't earn a five-star rating-- and I can't pretend it doesn't hurt-- but with the mishaps that occurred, we appreciate your comments. Thank you-- we appreciate your patience, too.

Would give 6 stars if I could

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed here for a week. This is a great place in a great location. Beach, restaurants and playground for kids are all a short walk away. The house is cozy, but doesn't feel cramped at all. The outside areas in front and back are nicely furnished and very comfortable. Included beach chairs, sand toys and body boards were nice additions and came in handy. Garage parking was also nice to have.

Marilyn was a pleasure to deal with. All of my questions (and scheduling changes) were handled quickly and accurately. We had a great time here. I would stay in this house again any time.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage! Perfectly situated within easy walking distance of several restaurants, recreational rentals, mini market and the beautiful La Jolla Shores beach. Home has a clean, welcoming and updated feel. Immediately relaxing upon entering! Owner Marilyn couldn't have been more accommodating, she was just great in every way! Having access to the garage and beach equipment was a real plus too. We plan to return every year! A real gem, thank you.
