About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Welcome to 407 Westbourne located just steps away from the world famous Wind’n’sea Beach in La Jolla California. This charming 2,800 square foot three bedroom three and a half bath single family home with detached casita boasts charming Spanish influenced architecture and is within easy walking distance to the La Jolla Village – home to some of the finest restaurants, shopping and art galleries in all of San Diego.

This private residence is impeccably maintained and has interiors designed by renowned artist and designer, Dana Balaban. Once inside the front gate, you will enjoy a well-landscaped courtyard with a bubbling fountain serving as a focal point and a seating area to soak in the afternoon sun.

The first level of this two story home has floors of stone with a inviting fireplace in the living room opposite two sectional sofas that easily convert into a sleeping area for four complete with Tommy Hilfiger comforters and down pillows.

Moving into the dining room, you will enjoy family meals at a custom, handcrafted table for ten with bench seating and bar area.

The galley style kitchen has the most rare blue and green granite countertops, top of the line stainless steel appliances complete with double oven and warming drawer, and large walk-in pantry behind a custom stained glass door. Just above the pantry is the front gate monitor for your added security. With service for 10, you will enjoy your family meals in this wonderfully comfortable area.

Just off the dining area is the powder room and a few steps further down the hall is the media room. Enjoy watching your favorite surf movie, baseball game or cable show on a huge built in 70-inch high definition flat screen. Or, plug in the Karaoke machine and host your own AMERICAN IDOL contest. There’s plenty of room for everyone on a custom built sofa that seats ten comfortably.

Upstairs you will find all bamboo wood floors and TWO large master suites. The front suite, with its Asian influenced décor, has a queen bed, fireplace, flat screen TV, and separate seating area with futon chair that converts to a bed, two large closets with plenty of drawer space and views of the pacific ocean. The private bathroom has a tub/shower combination and the same blue and green granite as downstairs.

The other master suite is a bit larger and has a white washed, Tommy Bahama feel. With a California king bed, futon lounge that converts to a bed, BIG flatscreen TV, and large walk-in closet, you will quickly feel at home. The bathroom is finished in gorgeous stone accents with a large fully enclosed shower. The large casement windows overlook private back courtyard and casita.

And therein lies the real beauty of this residence. Enjoy the best of indoor outdoor living in the fantastic rear courtyard complete with palm thatched covers, eating area, configurable seating including a colorful oversized chaise lounge, fire pit, built in BBQ, outdoor shower and spa.

Walk into the two-car garage with enough room for the largest of SUV’s and go for a ride on one of the eight beach cruisers or bogie boards. All the beach toys are there and available to you and there are plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for you to enjoy your lazy days at the beach. The large front-loading washer and dryer make doing laundry a breeze.

Above the garage is a cozy one-bedroom casita that sleeps three and is appointed with its own kitchenette and bathroom with shower.

This lovely beach home has distributed audio in every room, including the rear courtyard, and is operated by an easy to use hand-held controller from Sonos. You can easily dock your iPod to the system or use one of the built in music sources such as Pandora or Rhapsody. Literally ANY song you wish to hear is at your fingertips. With the controller, it’s simple to adjust the volume in the different rooms and even have separate music playing in each room.

Some additional benefits of this home are central air-conditioning and heat, wireless internet, free unlimited long distance, satellite TV with all the HBO channels, and fax machine and printer.

Don’t stay in a “rental” property with the typical “rental” appointments. This La Jolla beach home is a private vacation getaway. You won’t find anything like this at the beach! Call today.

Perfect Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about our wonderful experience at this beautiful property! The location is ideal - the ocean is at the end of the block. There are several restaurants within walking distance, and downtown Lajolla is only minutes away.

David has the house completely furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We especially enjoyed the private patio area with hot tub, where we could spend evenings relaxing, grilling and visiting with each other. Our group included children ages 10-20, and the house was perfectly equipped for them also. The garage had bikes, which the older ones took to go to Starbucks in the mornings. There were also knee boards, umbrellas and all the other equipment which you would want for fun at the beach.

The furnishings in the home are beautiful, impeccably clean and comfortable. The kitchen and dining areas are spacious and large, allowing the entire group to comfortably dine together or enjoy games in the evening.

We enjoyed going into downtown LaJolla, a very short drive, and visiting all of the shops and restaurants. We especially recommend the locally owned bookstore.

For delicious yet inexpensive dining within walking distance, we recommend Rigoberto's, only a block away. They have terrific breakfast burritos and nachos. It is so close and delicious the kids made numerous visits.

The house had wireless internet, which of course is a must when travelling with kids. It also allowed the adults to keep up with work in a beautiful setting.

As indicated, the ocean is at the end of the block. The beach was never crowded, and the kids and adults alike had a ball. It was a wonderful place to watch gorgeous sunsets!

David is terrific to work with. We will definitely be back!

Darlene - Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend in this house. The location is perfect for walking to surrounding restaurants and the beach. The house had everything we could have needed, well stocked kitchen with all the essentials. The backyard has an amazing jacuzzi and covered patio. We loved this house and will definitely stay here again.

We put bags over the security camera because it is a bit creepy to think someone is watching you.

Owner's Response: When you checked in, we spoke immediately and you literally said, "I love this place". You also emailed me within hours of your arrival outlining a few items that you thought were working properly - I'm attaching your exact email below: Hi David, We made it to La Jolla afterhaving 21 people to dinner for Christmas eve and cleaning up our kitchen before getting to tbe airport at 7:00am. We are so happy to be here.This place is great. The location is perfect and we are looking forward to a soak in the hot tub after dinner. The contract I signed requred me to tell you if I noticed any theng that was broken. We did notice a few small things. 1. The kitchen cabinate door below tbe sink on tbe right side is broken. 2. The door to Casita does not lock.. facet leaks 4. A few flourecent lights missing in kitchen 5. Upper queen bedroom , door to batheroom does not shut all the way. 6. Bathroom in cabinet might break soo. Please do not consider these complaints, just notes. Karen MacKenzie I also called you several times during your stay to make sure all was OK - you had nothing but GREAT things to say. Then you emailed me upon your departure to inform me that the items you thought were an issue were NOT: From: mackenziehome Date: 2016-12-31 8:41 PM (GMT-08:00) David, Kitchen faucet does not leak , upstairs queen bathroom door does shut, and we were abke to lock the casita door. As we discussed I have paid you through VRBO for house cleaning so I will leave no money on counter. We will be out of here at 9:00 New YearsDay. You can let your cleaning lady that we will be out of here around 9:00. Karen MacKenzie. We have 2 outside security cameras and ONE in the dining area pointed at the front door - WHICH IS IN PLAIN SIGHT! It's there for protection and is programmed to record only if the alarm is set off. When I called you to ask why you rated us a 1, you used fowl language and told me not to bother you but NEVER gave me a reason for such a poor review. This is a $2,250,000 home next to the greatest beach in San Diego. I take great pride in all the maintenance done to keep the home in great shape! This is not a rental home but my personal home that I rent when I'm traveling. I take all guest reviews personally and WELCOME constructive feedback. However, in this case, your negative review is unwarranted.. Respectfully David Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone

The house on Westbourne in Lajolla is perfect. The outside welcomes you with a beautiful private courtyard and a fountain. The back is a very large private patio with a grill, comfortable seating, and a large jacuzzi. The inside is lovely with very nice furniture, large televisions, well appointed kitchen, and enough sleeping room for over 12 people if needed. The beach is just at the end of the street, and great restaurants and shopping are nearby. The oner, David, is very helpful. I can't wait to come back
