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

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

Location was great but the furniture not comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

We walked to La Jolla center and Birdrock. The kitchen was beautifully designed with adequate dishes. The couch in the living room was broken and the other chairs only moderately comfortable. Beds are very low to the ground and the bedrooms freezing regardless of turning up the heat! I would not likely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi, The heating in the apartment works perfectly, no one has ever complained about being too cold, on the contrary we usually get comments that our guests were perfectly toasty during the winter. Perhaps this guests didn't understand how to use the thermostat, and never called to ask? The beds are modern style and lower to the ground, however we have had guests of all ages stay, without a problem. I would say that if you have a serious physical mobility issue, than perhaps a tall bed would be a better choice. Lastly, the furniture is comfortable, there are cushions on all seating, nothing is broken. We take customer service seriously and take great pride in our responsiveness if there ever is a problem. Unfortunately, we never heard a peep from this guest during their entire stay. If we had any issues, they would have been fixed.

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.
