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."

This is an outstanding property! Everything feels brand new and very comfortable and our our of state family stays here each time they visit. Marilyn couldn't be nicer or more accommodating, making sure the cottage is always in tip top shape for her guests' arrival.The proximity of the property to everything La Jolla Shores has to offer is perfect- close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops, but quiet enough to get a great night's sleep at night. Our family loves the cottage and rates it as their top vacation destination. Thank you!

Great House with a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, and I have now booked this great house two years running. The location and proximity to everything in the La Jolla area is second to none. The property itself is excellent with plenty of outside space to enjoy the great weather. The garage off the alley is also an undervalued treat. Can't recommend this place enough.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic experience all up. The owners are super responsive. The property description was extremely accurate, very clean, and well maintained. We stayed here with our 21-month-old son and could not have been happier. The house layout was fantastic with indoor and outdoor living space that really gives you the feel you are on vacation. It was a short walk to our favorite cafe - Brick & Bell Cafe - Amazing pastries and the best coffee. The beach was a short walk down through all the surf shops and restaurants. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to unwind and relax. We can't wait to stay here again next year!

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!!
