About Sharon Simmonds

I design dog toys for a living, love to travel and spend time with good friends and family.

Sharon Simmonds purchased this townhome in 1978

Why Sharon Simmonds chose San Diego County

I grew up near La Jolla and have always loved the charm and beauty. Wind n Sea Beach is truly beautiful and I love the peaceful 'tree house' feel of our vacation home.

What makes this townhome unique

The beach is a 3 minute walk out the front door. There are restaurants close by and downtown La Jolla is also close. Walk 2 blocks to pick up hot bagels in the morning after a walk on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We arrived home safely after a really great holiday in San Diego. Your house met all our expectations and we felt it was like home after a couple of days. The home equipment, amenities and location, particularly to the beach, were wonderful, and your support during our stay was much appreciated.

Thanks again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Best Regards

Very Good Vacation Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was very good. We loved the location and the livability of the house. The walk to the beach was quick and easy. We really loved our week there. Access to fun places in La Jolla and Pacific Beach was great.

Additional comments/suggestions:

1. We had trouble with the Wi-Fi throughout the stay. Sharon was very concerned and helpful, but the connection was intermittent.

2. The TV was nice but very difficult to turn on. There were multiple remotes and no instructions.

3. For enhanced appearances and enjoyment, we suggest that the patio table be painted and all the patio furniture be stained. Some nice "Sunbrello" cushions would look great, but those are pricy.

We would definitely consider staying here again, and we have recommended this property to friends and relatives.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean View Treehouse was the perfect rental for us! We stayed 3 weeks in this lovely beach apartment. The first two weeks my husband and I were working from the apartment. There was plenty of room to set up a work station for each of us and the WIFI was fast and dependable. Even though the apartment is close to La Jolla Blvd, we just closed the front windows and it was plenty quiet enough and opening the back and side windows keep a beautiful cool breeze blowing through the house. Early every morning we would walk a block and a half down to Windansea beach to watch the morning surfers and walk through the neighborhood to the south to admire the beautiful homes and little hidden beach acces stairs and paths to explore incredible tide pools that changed daily with the tide. In the evenings we would walk back down to watch the sunset and on our first night we even witnessed the fabled green flash which I had last seen over 30 years ago despite hundreds of watched sunsets! Our two grown sons joined us for the last week of vacation and there was plenty of room for both of them. One in the 2nd bedroom and one on a very comfortable raised air bed in the family room. Having our own laundry room was a huge plus and the updated kitchen had everything we needed. The biggest surprise for us was the fact that we did not share walls with the other units. This apartment is free standing and all that is below are 4 garage bays and our laundry room. There is a front and a back entrance and an outdoor shower in a private patio. Parking was never an issue. One mile south is Bird Rock for coffee, dining, bars and a mile north is La Jolla Village for groceries, great restaurants bars, and scenery.

In conclusion, we would highly recommend this place and would definitely book it again.

Spotless, good location

  • 5 of 5

A week seeing all the San Diego "musts" (Sea World, Zoo, food scene, Torrey Pines hike, etc) was great from this La Jolla location. We were w/in 15 to 30 minutes from everything we wanted to see. And we were only a 4 minute walk from the beach. There were a couple of windows from which one could actually see the ocean from this rental, but overall that's not it's strong point. But great location none the less. There was some noticeable street noise from one of the master BR windows, but it would die down at night; there are two windows in that room and we were plenty cool closing one of them. The BR and bath set-ups were well laid out (there were 3 adults) and the decor is hip, fun and functional and beds comfortable.

We had a minor tweek with getting the TV right and the problem was quickly resolved with a phone call. A good place to stay for a San Diego area stay.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. A little closer to main rd than we thought from the pictures. A little noisy overnight but we got used to it . Very supportive owners which we did meet. Was nice to have the mid month cleaning.

Shower heads probably need replacement. Latch on front fence needs repair.

Otherwise great experience . We would come back again

Sunny, comfortable, quiet beach house a block from the ocean

  • 4 of 5

We just came back from a great Christmas - New Year's eve week at this lovely La Jolla beach house. It was clean, quiet, well stocked and spacious. The heating system worked well and the house was delivered just as it was advertised. We enjoyed walking down the block and seeing the ocean as it is beautifully located in a little street perpendicular to the beach, a pleasure even when it's breezy. Sharon was responsive and always answered her emails promptly. The kitchen is very spacious and awesome for breakfast preparations, and there were many restaurants in the area.

The charming house and its location certainly made our vacation with the kids a real treat. We jogged every morning in the manicured neighborhood along the coast, sipped an amazing coffee at the Bird Rock coffee shop, and relaxed between site seeing.

We would definitely recommend this place for couples and families alike!

Ocean View Tree House

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this perfectly located condo in La Jolla, despite not having air conditioning during an unseasonably warm week (we really weren't there during the heat of the day and fans with open windows at night made it comfortable). The condo was spacious for 2 adults and 2 children with wonderful bath linens and amenities. We easily accessed all of the top sight-seeing attractions in the area and enjoyed wonderful restaurants. A great family vacation.
