This house was absolutely stunning and the view was spectacular!!!
12 of us (6 couples) recently stayed here for a birthday celebration and had the BEST experience! Dave is a wonderful, accommodating and charming host. The home was perfect for us as there was plenty of gathering space but the bedrooms were spread out enough that we were not on top of each other. The pool and hot tub were great and the view from the deck/patio was unbelievable! Would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks again Dave.
View of a Lifetime!
The view from this beautiful mansion is amazing! All of La Jolla lays out before you with nothing blocking the view for 250 degrees of open ocean and twinkling city lights. Pour a glass of wine and don't miss a single sunset. The home is filled with museum-quality antiques completing the feel of a "Castle" in the sky. David, the owner/manager, is a delight and easy to work with for planning your stay. The home is well located for easy access to all the San Diego area has to offer, including wonderful restaurants and breweries. My entire family was thrilled with the pool / spa; we couldn't stay out of it!! David had it heated for us to jump right in (extra fee for heating - be sure to ask!). Kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans/dishes. Bedrooms all have their own unique feel, are spaced out well for privacy and each has it's own bathroom. The master suite is HUGE! We would definitely return to this spacious, welcoming home.
What a fun place to stay! Castle in the Sky has been remodeled and added on to over the years, but it retains its lovely 1930s charm with an AMAZING panaramic view of the Pacific to boot. It easily accommodated a large group of us with many young children, as the rooms were spread out and there was more than enough living and outdoor space. Castle in the Sky was also accessible enough for us to take daily walks to coffee shops, grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants and even farmers markets. It may benefit from a few updates here and there, but that is the only reason I didn’t give it a perfect rating.The owner Dave was incredibly accommodating and eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible, responding to a minor hiccup we had with the hot tub immediately (one of the kids’ toys was stuck in the drain). We arranged to have the pool heated, and it was the perfect temp for kids to play all day, everyday. In short, there is something special about Castle in the Sky and it will be at the top of our list when we return to La Jolla.
Beautiful Vacation Home
Absolutely loved our stay at this spacious home. The views from the pool and balcony's are priceless!!
Tired, outdated and a cold pool
Maybe if the pool had actually been heated a day in advance, as the owner had agreed to do (and I sent him a follow up reminder here on VRBO a few days in advance) the owner might have discovered that the heater didn't work. But since he arrived at the same time we did, and it was a holiday weekend, the problems with the heater weren't discovered until we were already there. This was truly sad for us - I never would have rented this house without a heated pool. Our kids were miserable - a pool right there, and too cold to swim in. At first the owner told us that it was our fault because we weren't turning it on correctly. Then when he couldn't turn it on himself, he complained loudly about what this was going to cost him. Well, renting this house without a heated pool cost me a whole lot of money too. It certainly wasn't my fault that it didn't work. And maybe if we'd been able to use the pool, we wouldn't have minded the dishwasher that didn't close properly, the stains on the sofas, the pool table that was unusable because of broken pockets, the foam leaking out of the dining room chairs, the "extra" bedroom that is really an open area at the top of the stairs with a bed in it.
It must have been glamorous once, but it's way past its prime. A chef who cooked for us one night, who has seen dozens of rental houses, looked around and said to us, "Wow, this really needs a makeover." Uh huh.
And were especially unhappy that the "guest cottage on the property" that the owner said he would be staying in was actually an extension of the house. So much for our privacy.
I wouldn't recommend this house.
This review is false and malicious.I filed a case with VRBO during this guests stay,case #14496672 as I was so upset with this horrible group of people.Initially the booking was for 4 adults and 3 children. When the group was all in the home there was somewhere between 16-20 people with lots of unsupervised small children and drunk parents.I submitted photos to VRBO of trash strewn on the floors and throughout the home.
They couldn't even find the trash cans.
It took the cleaning crew 3 days to clean the mess up and prepare for the next family.
Unfortunatly the weather was cold and windy
and the new pool heater would not function
with 30-50 mph winds.Once the storms past the pool was heated immediately.They did not pay to heat the pool and we're not charged.
The furnishings in the home are primarily antiques and must not have been to their
liking.Please read all the reviews and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions
