Hang up your car keys, and experience what makes this charming home one of the best vacation in La Jolla. JUST 2 BLOCKS FROM HEART OF THE VILLAGE!

heart of the Village and all the best that La Jolla has to offer.

About Deborah Arnau

Mike and Debbie are retired and loving life in La Jolla. They love their Park Row home and rarely use their car. You can see them every Sunday walking home laden with flowers, treasures and organic goodies from the La Jolla Farmer's market. Mike is an avid golfer, and Debbie is a fitness enthusiast. With tennis courts and The La Jolla Sport Club 3 blocks from her home, she takes tennis lessons and classes in Pilates, Yoga, dance, and Ocean Boot camp that keep her in great shape. They spend most every evening taking in the sunset along the 3 mile ocean walk which starts 1 block from their home, enjoying the sunset and one of the most beautiful settings in the world. They spend part of summer in upstate New York near daughter's family and grandbaby Twin toddlers! Other passions...their church.. La Jolla Community Church, exploring San Diego, its vistas, it's charm and it's never ending list of things to experience.

Deborah Arnau purchased this house in 2007

Why Deborah Arnau chose San Diego County

LOCATION!!!! Just 3 blocks from Georges Restaurant and the ocean.


CHARM of house with it's spacious additions for great family living!

Great deck upstairs with seating for 4 to toast the OCEAN AND SUNSET VIEWS!

A new restaurant to discover every night.. only a walk away!

What makes this house unique

We loved this Historic Mill's Act home, with over 3,100 square feet of charm! BUT WHAT REALLY SOLD US IS:

1)THE CLIFF AND OCEAN PATH 2 BLOCKS FROM OUR HOUSE THAT TAKES OUR BREATH AWAY. We always see lovers cozying in the benches, toasting to the sunset. A little further down, we visit our Sea Lion neighbors, and a bit further down, we check out the Seals lounging at the Children's Pool.


Guestbook comments from the owner

We (four adults) had a long trip from the UK so arrived at La Jolla very tired and ready for bed. We were pleasantly surprised that everything was sparkling clean and ready for us, even a welcoming bottle of Californian wine (a very nice touch). This home is much better than the pictures show on the site, it reminded me of an old English cottage. The fact that the owners have left their own artefacts in the property really makes it feel like home as opposed to just a 'cold' holiday let. The home is within easy walking distance of downtown and various good restaurants and shops etc. San Diego is a short hop down the freeway, so all in al it is in a perfect position whether you wish to explore the area or just relax around La Jolla.

The owners kindly sent us a full information pack before we arrived which proved extremely helpful. This included instructions about the home through to information on local restaurants and attractions.

We would have no hesitation in booking this property again (and probably will) and we would highly recommend it to others seeking a relaxing and hassle free base in this lovely part of the world.

Over the Top Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was my first home rental,...somewhat apprehensive honestly. I usually stay in 5 Star hotels, but I was taking my 4 yr. old Granddaughter on our first preschool spring break trip to all the area attractions and thought a home would be more enjoyable. This was one of my best decisions to stay here. The house is charming beyond words, so comfortable I didn't want to leave and my granddaughter asked if we could stay another time. I truly was so happy at this house and location. Everything is within walking distance. Great restaurants, shopping,'s so wonderful I really can't review this property to describe how truly over the top charming it is. Truly a dream rental! I would live there if I could.!!

The Perfect La Jolla Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better experience at this lovely historic La Jolla home. Beautifully decorated, and centrally located, this gem abounds with charm and warmth. The gardens are breathtaking, the patio off the family room is peaceful and gorgeous, the bedrooms are spacious, and the owners were warm and welcoming. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a memorable week with our family in this La Jolla home and look forward to returning again soon!

The VRBO Jackpot!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this charming La Jolla village treasure was amazing! The home was so welcoming, cozy, and beautiful. We have stayed in other VRBO's and this topped them all. I felt like I hit the VRBO jackpot!

The location was simply perfect we enjoyed multiple walks to town and the beach. A great way to spend the last few days before sending my daughter off to college.

Thank you again!

God Bless,

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This historic home is so beautiful and charming. Everything was tastefully decorated and welcoming. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!!! The house was so convenient to the cove, shops and restaurants in La Jolla that you could walk to everything.

Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

When searching all of our options, I not only study the photos and descriptions, but I also research all the reviews. I got a very warm feeling about not only the home, but the owners, too. And it was absolutely correct. My family and I had such a lovely time staying in this beautiful home. We felt tremendously comfortable and had such a great experience overall. The home is impeccable and the location is just perfect. We walked to so many great shops and restaurants. Thank you so much, Deb and Mike! We will be back!

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Charming comfortable home centrally located in LaJolla. Walking to restaurants / shopping is a definite plus! Owners are very assessable / available truly wanting you to enjoy a great vacation! Well stocked kitchen; first VRBO experience that paper products / shower soap was included. Very thoughtful feature. Of course we replaced anything we 'used up'. Thank you Deb for making us feel at home!
