About Brant Westfall

I am originally from Lanikai Hawaii where my grandmother had a vacation rental for over 50 years. I moved to La Jolla in 1990 to attend San Diego State University and never left. I have been a top producing realtor in La Jolla since 2002 and specialize in the purchase and sale of vacation homes and investment properties. My wife and I purchased this home as well as the one next door where we live with our three children. There isn't a better location in La Jolla or San Diego for that matter than La Jolla Shores.

Brant Westfall purchased this house in 2011

Great everything. A fully gated plot, worked fab for 2 active boy tots. I could foresee house working well for a variety of situations.

The area is a great locals' locations. Splendid short jaunts to impressive beach stocked with kid crazy playgrounds. Fantastic Italian dining. Nice AM cafe options. Take-out pizza to rave. Tap into delicious outside restaurants and microbrew bars.

Beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here while visiting La Jolla for a wedding. We really enjoyed this home and glad we chose it over a condo. We had friends staying at beach club so it was very convenient as we were right across the street.

Owner has done a fabulous job decorating. We felt super comfortable and right at home. Thank you!

Family Fun at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and four children just loved the home and location. We had visited the Shores in the past but always stayed at a hotel. Staying at a home made everything so much easier. Our children loved going to the beach on their own and made friends with some of the neighborhood kids. The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were happy to meet the owners during our stay. Although, we did not encounter any issues it was good to know they were close by just in case. Can't wait to come back in the summer! Thank you!

Beautiful Cottage in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights with our two college-age boys and their girlfriends. The home is beautifully decorated and the location is in a quite neighborhood. Down the street two blocks (about a 2 min walk) are many good restaurants and coffee shops (both casual & fine dining). We enjoyed Shorehouse Kitchen for breakfast on several days. There are a number of nice outdoor cafes that are open late. The walk to the beach is another three blocks away. We walked to the beach every day we stayed. The rental house is located behind the owner's residence. There is a private walkway back to the house. Tall fences between the two homes help give the rental a very private feeling. There is a nice patio off the master and another patio with an outdoor table and BBQ. The interior of the home is very comfortable with new contemporary furnishings that provide a welcoming

"beach cottage" feeling. The kitchen is well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. The house is air conditioned. The spacing of the bedrooms rooms gave everyone privacy. Although the home is not large, the layout worked very well for all of us and we never felt crowded. The two bathrooms each have a shower. Bring your own soap & shampoo. There were boogie boards and beach toys available to borrow, a small cart to haul toys to the beach, and plenty of beach towels available for use. A washer and dryer was handy for laundry. There is onsite parking for one vehicle, although we found that it was just as easy to park on the street. The La Jolla Shores beach is ideal, as it has long gentle rolling waves that make it easy to boogie board. The beach is long and not terribly crowded. There are many kayak and surfing vendors within walking distance if you choose to try that out. We made several trips to the La Jolla village area, which has a lot of high end shopping, restaurants, and the famous La Jolla Cove. The village is only 2-3 minutes away by car, but one could walk or bike there too. All in all, we had a great stay and were very pleased to have found this home.

A great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came to La Jolla for our spring break -- a much needed break from the cold. The instructions to find and access the property were very clear. Brant was easily accessible via text to help with our questions. The house was perfect for the five of us -- three teenage boys. We loved the access to the shops and dining at La Jolla. Our favorite breakfast place was Shorehouse. We tried several of the other restaurants and all were great! The beach was nice, but the water was very cold. We rented a wet suit for my son so he could boogie board, which worked out well. The house came with beach chairs and a cooler, which came in handy. Lots of sand toys, too, but my kids are too old for those. It was nice to walk around and my kids were also able to skateboard. Visiting the Cove is a must. Got to see sea lions on the beach, which was pretty amazing. We also visited Coronado beach several times. We love that beach and it's just a drive away -- more great shops and restaurants. We also hiked at Torrey Pines State Reserve -- a must if you like to hike. All in, it was a great place to stay. Convenient (loved having a washer and dryer), clean, plenty of space. Would stay again.
