Cozy Elegance in Southern California - Sunset Villa, one of the finest of all San Diego luxury vacation rentals anywhere.

A six thousand square-foot home overlooking the Pacific Coast, Sunset Villa is a masterpiece of engineering and design. Equipped with every modern amenity, with exquisite views from every room and just minutes from downtown La Jolla with its beaches and boutiques, and a short drive from San Diego and all the city has to offer, Sunset Villa is truly one of the most amazing San Diego luxury vacation rentals for you and your family that you will find!

Sunset Villa is designed with enormous curved windows on four levels built into the hillside for panoramic views of the ocean from every room. With a beautifully appointed, fully equipped kitchen, luxurious master suite, exercise equipment, library and artist's studio, it is a perfect destination for an unforgettable vacation.

Nestled in lush hills overlooking the seaside paradise of La Jolla, Sunset Villa is a masterfully designed five-bedroom contemporary villa, offering panoramic views of Southern California's golden shores. Immense curved windows line four floors, ensuring every room enjoys an inspiring vista. Ideal for family retreats, or escapes with friends, this stunning property houses numerous five-star amenities and is less than 2 miles from the beaches of La Jolla.

When not at the beach, Sunset Villa's lower deck is the perfect spot for working on your tan. The beautiful mosaic-tiled terrace features a set a chaise longues, placed just by the clear water of your private pool. Feel your troubles melt away as you gaze across the horizon to the sapphire Pacific. Recount the day's adventures with guests, from the upper terrace's tropical blue lounge set. A top-of-the-line barbecue and al fresco table are all the excuse you'll need to enjoy dinner under the stars.

In the spacious living room, a regal copper fireplace competes for attention with tall picture windows. Head into the smaller living room and you'll find a cozy venue for movie night on the flatscreen TV. The dining room table needs no centerpiece as it is, itself, the centerpiece of the great room. Rising steps above the natural stone floors, you'll savor every bite served among its columned surroundings. The gourmet kitchen is beautifully styled with an exposed beam ceiling presiding over high-end appliances and granite surfaces.

Up to ten guests will sleep like royalty in the five well-appointed bedrooms. The suites contain a mixture of King, Queen and Twin beds, and each room reflects the tranquil sophistication of contemporary California design. The large Master bedroom has a custom curved desk to match the arc of its window. It opens onto a private terrace and has its own en-suite with premium fixtures. Two other bedrooms feature en-suites, and one room houses state-of-the-art fitness machines.

When you're ready to explore, you'll find a hospitable destination in La Jolla. The town is renowned for its high-end jewelry shops, fabulous restaurants, spas and family-friendly beaches. La Jolla is also home to the legendary Torrey Pines golf course, an important stop on the PGA tour. Sunset Villa also puts you within 15 miles of San Diego's top attractions like the Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego Zoo, Mission Beach and Harbor Island.

Location and Views Spectacular

  • 4 of 5

Rented home for 3 nights to celebrate a 40th birthday party. 5 couples stayed in the home. Location and views are spectacular, with ocean views from virtually every room in the house. Rental management company was helpful in pre-stocking the kitchen with groceries, as well as recommending a personal chef to hire during our stay and massage therapists to provide in-home services.

While the homes decor is a bit dated, the beds and linens used were very, very good. While the kitchen is a bit small, it is very well appointed and has everything you need to prepare large meals. It's important to note that two of the five bedrooms are somewhat open with the master bedroom being an open loft over-hanging another bedroom/gym below. Since our group consisted of close friends, this open lay-out did not bother us. Only complaint I have is in respect to the size of the house. It is listed as nearly 6,000 square feet, yet tax records confirm it is just under 5,000 square feet.

Overall, this is a wonderful home and highly recommended for families.

This house has it all!! The views from every window are magnificent, and the sunsets are breathtaking!! It's so spacious , my family of 9 all had plenty of their own space, and bathroom. Minutes from everything, makes it so easy to do whatever you want. The owner made renting this house a breeze, no hassles. She was very a accomadating with all our needs, right down to assuring our groceries were delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to all my friends. Thank you Jenn for sharing this beautiful home with others!! We will be back!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Strongly recommend this breathtaking ocean view house, nice and big bedrooms are also fit in multi-families stay. Only take 5-minute drive to La Jolla coast area, and town center. Our family with three others spent a wonderful three-day Thanksgiving vacation in the Sunset Villa. As we first got in, the amazing ocean view was even better

than what we saw in the commercial photo gallery. Every room has its own style

with unique viewing perspective. This house is fully facilitated with various entertainment equipment from standard item like pool, workout station, BBQ equipment, to even electronic piano. We had great time with parties and self-cooking, they got everything we need. It was awesome to dine together while enjoying the nice

view outside, we did BBQ, hot pot, and kids were even happier than us playing

in the swimming pool. Kids enjoyed the creative toys as we

adults had fun of playing board games. If you do like reading, the library in

this house contain numerous collections for all age. The manager, Jennifer, is

really a nice person and truly considerate. She is always reachable whenever we

had a question about this house. We did feel like home with her help. We never

regret our choice of Sunset Villa. It will be our first choice staying in La

Jolla in future! If you wanna spend a good time with your families while relaxing

from the cities, don't miss out this one.
