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 Beach Barber Tract

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

All the most important parts were in order.

  • 4 of 5

We just had a few small irritations. It was hard to clean up the kitchen without a kitchen washcloth. When we washed the towels on the last day we found the kitchen towels and washcloths clean and dry but in the dryer where we did not think to look for them. Also, there was no laundry soap so we just washed the beach towels without soap. There were also no replacement trash bags for the kitchen trash can which was slightly irritating. The battery in the kitchen trash can was out and the batteries in the back door lock failed while we were there. I could not find a broom so we had to just had to live with the sand that accumulated on the floor. There was very little toilet paper so we restocked it, leaving plenty for future guests. I had trouble pulling up details from all the emails. This is probably my fault for being to busy but there were times when I was standing at the door trying to find the code on my emails, or trying to figure out how to take out the trash which the instructions said was by using a key. After 30 minutes of trying to figure that out I was informed that it was by code. Maybe there is a way to make things easier.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback and sorry for the kitchen towels being left in the dryer. We have addressed this with our cleaning crew. We do email very thorough instructions on our keyless system which our guests love the convenience of. The house entry code is based on the guests cell number which no one has ever before complained about not remembering. We keep replacement batteries in the home in case the locks run low, had this guest told me the lock was low they could have easily replaced the batteries. We also state that starter amounts of toilet paper, paper towels, liners, and laundry detergent are provided, and guests need replenish as needed.

Close to the beach but can get stuffy without ac in July

  • 3 of 5

So the location is great, La Jolla is a beautiful wealthier suburb. There are restaurants and coffee shops all within a few minutes or you can walk. The place has updated bathrooms and kitchen but the rest of the property is tired looking. Not a big deal you're gonna be outside most of the time anyway. The biggest problem we had was no air conditioning. Yes you're by the coast and there is an occasional breeze but this place is on the second floor, we had all the windows open and 3-4 fans blowing full blast in the bedrooms because the afternoons and evenings get stuffy-these come with the unit. This was the end of July beginning of August, it was humid and 77-80F, quite bearable if you're sitting on the beach not so much on the second floor indoors. We had two small kids with us and having windows open at night for air circulation meant you can hear people getting into their cars talking on the street and car traffic became more pronounced, this is the second building from the corner of main street. It's not horrible but not quiet either with windows open. Expect to hear occasional biker boys and loud cars rolling by on weekends, it may wake up your kid. Street parking wasn't an issue. Pack n play and high chair are provided. We would probably come back and stay again but not in the summer months, ceiling fans or a window ac unit would be an easy fix for this.

Great location and apartment clean but furniture and beds were uncomfortable.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the area a lot and the apartment was clean and nice inside but the downside was the furniture. Very uncomfortable and not good to really relax like we wanted. The beds were platform beds and too low to ground and also not comfy. We were there 10 days and little too long to not be able to find a comfortable spot to lounge around in. Just need to invest in better quality furniture and we would come back. Area was just beautiful.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the area. The beds are platform beds with memory foam mattresses and are very comfortable (I have slept here myself!), but if you have any mobility problems, platform beds which are low to the ground, are not going to be a good fit for you. The sofa and other chairs (which have comfy cushions) are all new normal furniture and I find them perfectly comfortable.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

We had never been to the San Diego/La Jolla area before, and when looking for a place to stay, this one checked off most of our boxes. The location was perfect, close enough to the center of town for a quick drive or walk, yet not too close. The house itself had all of the amenities we needed for our week's stay. Enough room that we could spread out and relax, alone or together. We loved being able to walk down to the beach at any time. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable.
