Amazing house, amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house. Our family gathered there for a week and had a wonderful time. The pool and hot tub were great and there were lots or pool toys for the little ones. The view was truely amazing and the sunsets unbelieveable.The kitchen had anything you could ever need and with two smaller refrigerators besides the one large one, there was plenty of room for extras. We had a party one day and were able to carefully fit 8 cars in the circular driveway. There is no parking on the street. We stored lots of extras in the huge laundry room that has 2 washers and 2 dryers. The owner David is very nice and easy to work with. We loved the fact that there was a huge bedroom suite at the far end of the house where we put the teenagers.

Son's Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Castle in the Sky. We use online resources like HomeAway, VRBO, etc., quite a bit for our family vacations and it can be challenging to find a home that can comfortably accommodate our group of 10 adults. We wanted a spacious home to be together to celebrate our son's wedding in San Marcos. This home suited us perfectly!! The home is well spread out with many bedrooms to choose from, each with their own bathroom. A MUST for adult children! The main living area is in the center of the home with a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living area, but the the best part is just outside the patio doors. The outdoor patio and yard space with a large pool and spa is designed to enjoy all that San Diego offers with a gorgeous view of the ocean. This is where we spent most of our time! The property is in a quiet neighborhood and is walkable to local restaurants and a little over a mile to the beach. We loved our walks to see the sunsets in the evenings. The owner Dave, was very easy to work with and accommodating to our needs. You can tell he loves his home and takes great pride in it!

We will definitely stay at this property in the future for family get togethers. Thank you for a lovely family weekend!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

My thanks to Dave, the owner, for the wonderful accommodations at his home in La Jolla.

The home was as nice as the pictures and the pool was enjoyed by my entire family. It was nice to walk down the hill to town for the Farmers Market, some nice restaurants and La Jolla Brew. We were able to walk on to Torrey Pines Golf Course at &;00 am , which has been on my bucket list for a long time.

Wonderful views and a very friendly owner.

We had our entire family in for a week at "Castle in the Sky" in La Jolla. It was a wonderful place to stay for 8 adults and 4 kids (all kids under 10). The owner, David Clark, was very easy to deal with and very accommodating. The house itself is a beautiful old (1940's era) house that has had significant additions and updates over the years. It is comfortable, well appointed, roomy and convenient to the entire San Diego area. The only downside we had was that there was a damaged gasket on the Sub Zero refrigerator that created problems for us with keeping our groceries as cold as they should be. David tried to fix the gasket but had been sent the gasket for the freezer rather than the refrigerator. That is the only reason this house is not a 5 star in my book. This is an easy fix.

I would definitely recommend this house as a great place to stay in the SD area. The next time we come to SD with the family, we will stay here. Great!!

Unbelievable ocean views and privacy.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our son's destination wedding and would definitely come back. The home easily accommodated our large family and we used the entire inside of the home. The home is spacious and the kitchen was a great addition for eating and gathering. It was a classic home, not modern but with all the amenities that one expects today. The outdoor space was amazing with the views of La Jolla and the ocean. It was totally relaxing and we have heard nothing but positive comments from all the family who stayed with us. Dave was more than accommodating and even drove my wife to the hotel. We appreciated his quick response to questions and inquiries. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in La Jolla and get away.
