Two months in a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted to spend our first winter away from New England in a warmer climate and relaxed environment. Our almost two months in this cottage accomplished both goals and so much more. The cottage is perfect; clean, feels new and is a stone's throw from the village. La Jolla Shores is a perfect place to get away from it all but not too far away from anything. If you're thinking about staying near La Jolla, this cottage is the place to stay. Marilyn and Greg are great people who want your stay to be nothing short of enjoyable and they succeeded. Our future plans are to avoid every New England winter going forward and La Jolla Shores and this cottage are on our list for the future.

Amazing little haven!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time staying in La Jolla and could not have found a more perfect location and beautiful home to spend our week. From the moment we arrived I couldn't believe how tucked away we were but only steps from fabulous restaurants, cafe's, fun bars and minutes to the beach. It was a perfect set up for my family (Children 12 & 9). We spent nights around the fire pitt or inside playing games by the fire. It was so relaxing we didn't want to leave. Marilyn and Greg were brilliant at sorting out any of our needs and were so helpful and welcoming. The house has everything you need for a perfect beach holiday with all the added luxuries. We can't stress enough how handy it was being able to walk to the beach everyday and play in the waves, come back to the outside shower to get ride of the sand and get warm by the fire. All the beds were SO comfortable and the house had everything we needed and more.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, we will be back!

Great accommodation in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location right near the beach and shops. Very clean. We have a 2 year old and 4 year old and there was plenty of space for them to play in enclosed yards.

Beautiful home with many upgrades, extra amenities and gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well appointed with many upgrades and is perfectly located in the heart of La Jolla shores. The home is in immaculate condition and the owners have obviously paid very close attention to detail. The kitchen is modern and has all the necessities including professional kitchen quality appliances. The family room is nicely decorated with modern touches while still being warm and comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious for a vacation cottage and all three areas of the house (master and guest bedroom and family room) open onto the open courtyard. The courtyard boasts a fireplace, grill and water feature. The rental comes with a parking spot in a private garage that is also stocked with standard beach toys such as body boards and sand toys for the kids. The home is secure with numeric key code locks that you can customize to your own code. When we arrived we were greeted with a bottle of wine, nice note, and even beach snacks! We had one small issue with an appliance but the owner had it fixed immediately. In summary - this is an A+ property and perfect if you're looking for an upgraded vacation home just 1 min walk from restaurants and 5 min walk to the beach. We would definitely stay there again.
