About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Come enjoy an enticing blend of heritage and modern in this 1-bedroom, 1-bath 820 sq. ft. 2 story Historic Beach Cottage just 2 1/2 blocks from La Jolla’s beautiful, and famous, Windansea Beach in La Jolla.

A private patio has a barbecue, a chiminea, and a table for 4 if you decide to dine al fresco. A back porch also offers comfortable seating as a place to read a book, or simply to enjoy some quiet time.

A gated white picket fence area leads up to an “old fashioned” front porch with comfortable seating - a perfect place for you to relax and enjoy all that surrounds you- including a large grassy lawn shared with a Heritage Cottage next to this one.

The front door opens into a spacious great room with hard wood floors, a lovely cathedral ceiling, and long windows making this area light and airy. Comfortable cluster seating, a flat screen TV, a DVD and CD player, and a stereo system, give you lots of ways to rest, relax, and recharge.

The entry way showcases an antique display cabinet and an armoire with a mirror showcasing the essence of the old and new immediately. A dining table for 4 is right next to the living room area and has a nice view out onto the side porch.

A modern, well laid out kitchen has everything you need to create meals and snacks, including a big butcher block if you need additional counter space. Add the food and the conversation and you have everything you need to enhance your vacation time and satisfy your culinary desires.

14 steps up is a loft bedroom with 2 queen beds. This area also offers a small chest with a seat, and a skylight. The bathroom is located just off the great room downstairs and features glass tile work, a marble top vanity, and a claw foot bathtub outfitted to also be a shower if desired.

And of course the bed and bathroom are furnished with premiere linens for your ultimate comfort. Beach towels are also provided. There is also off street parking for 1 car, and a washer and dryer is also available for your use.


Clearly it has been well loved and updated to both showcase its heritage and ensure it has every modern convenience - making it a wonderful cottage to return to at the end of your day’s adventures.

Just a short walk to the beach and also within walking distance of La Jolla Village with its world-renowned restaurants, shopping, and museums.

It is a 10-minute drive to freeway access in the event that you wish to explore some of the many world-class attractions such as SeaWorld, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, etc.

Charming La Jolla Home by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful La Jolla home so much. The location was perfect as it was right by the beach, shopping and tons of restaurants to chose from, all within walking distance. We had everything we needed and were so comfortable we really felt this was a home away from home. We will definitely be referring our friends and family to this great find anytime they're in the area.

Great Little Cottage Near It All

  • 5 of 5

After looking at many hotels and condos in the area, we decided on this great little cottage. Stayed 4 nights with my wife and toddler. First time in La Jolla and we had a blast! Cute little place with lots of charm and history. Plenty of room inside the main living areas. Fun vintage furniture.

We started and ended each day at the beach which is a very easy 5 minute walk through a great neighborhood. Also short walk to the many shops and restaurants around. It was great to have a full kitchen (fully stocked) and stackable washer/dryer. We used the rear patio BBQ several times as well. The property sits on the corner of La Jolla Blvd which is a pretty busy street but we knew that going in and the traffic/noise didn't bother us. The inside of the house is in very good shape. You can tell it has been remodeled not too long ago. The outside looks a little shabby (peeling paint, plywood on the rear deck, etc) but it adds to the charm! Nothing was broken or in disrepair.

One pearl of wisdom: Watch your head in the lofted sleeping area!

I would highly recommend to a small family or couple.

Impressive Beach Treat!

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a short vacay with two girlfriends and what attracted us to this property was the house having so much character! It was way more spacious than we had expected and has really nice upgraded appliances. Of course the location is prime - close to all shops, food, beach, and fun! The staff was incredibly helpful and nice! I will definitely be back for another trip and would recommend this fully to everyone!
