About David Schroedl

La Jolla resident for 43 years. Retired La Jolla residential real estate broker. Legend status with Prudential California Real Estate. Former real estate developer. Three degrees from MIT.

David Schroedl purchased this house in 2004

Why David Schroedl chose San Diego County

One of the very few redwood and glass mid-century modern homes in La Jolla. Rich redwood texture. Updated with high quality touches. Extremely high quality furniture. Super-high speed internet. Enjoy the romance of soft lighting with Lutron dimming on almost all the lighting.

Vistas or ocean views from all rooms!

Enjoy all the advantages of Apple TV including ability to view NETFLIX and all your photos and video on the 65' TV screen. Relax on the Rouche-Bobois couch and lounge chair or on the zero gravity Human Touch 'Perfect Chair' featuring tempurpedic foam. A second large screen TV is located outdoors for your enjoyment while sitting in the large outdoor patio off the great room.


For computer use, six foot glass topped 'desk' in FR with two Knoll office chairs. For dining, tables and chairs for ten (twelve when using the office chairs).

What makes this house unique

Enjoy being indoors with the feeling of being one with nature. Glass just disappears into the ceilings and many of the walls. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE OUTDOORS WHILE INSIDE THE HOME. Eight huge skylights bath the home with light while the cedar roof overhang providing natural sun control. Two of the skylights in the bathroom area are ventilating.

And speaking of ventilation, with operative sliding glass windows next to the ceiling in all rooms, catch the ocean breezes and enjoy SUPER cross ventilation. That ventilation eliminates all the hot air that typically rises to the ceiling and creates higher interior than exterior temperatures. No need for mechanical airconditioning nor is any featured. ENJOY LA JOLLA'S FANTASTIC WEATHER WHILE INSIDE YOUR HOME!

Although there is little need for it, enjoy radiant hot water heat in the floors on those cooler winter nights.

Wonderful huge patios and much lush vegetation. Extreme privacy.

Note: Door clearances are 6'2' to 6'3'.

Beautiful home and property, great location, updated, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My sister's family and my family stayed here for a week and loved it. The living spaces, rooms and beds were set up great for our families, and the home was very comfortable. The back patio and yard were great for hanging out. The kids loved exploring the property, and the adults got to hang out on the patio after they went to bed. We went to Legoland, Disneyland, the Midway aircraft carrier in San Diego and the beach in La Jolla and Coronado. Downtown La Jolla was right there, with lots of restaurants and a grocery store. The home was great, lots of space, easy to cook and grill, and nice to relax inside and out. David, the owner, was great and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted. He had cribs, fans, beach toys and beach chairs. The location was easy to get to the highway, and the neighborhood felt very safe. We would definitely stay here again.

2 Minutes to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at David’s vacation house the weekend of March 18th with our four young children and had a great time! We arrived around midnight after driving from Disneyland to San Diego, and it was so nice to be able to walk into the home and put each child into their own comfortable bed, complete with white noise machines and blinds. Our kids slept great and consequently we slept great! The house has everything a family could need, from a high chair to a crib, as well as comforts for adults such as a big screen TV (with Netflix!) and fully-stocked kitchen including an espresso machine. The bathrooms are all recently remodeled with modern fixtures and rainforest showers, and the upper deck has a great view of the ocean. The best part is that it’s just a 2 minute Uber/Lyft ride to the beautiful La Jolla shores beach. We will be back soon for sure!

Unique and Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending a 4 day weekend in this lovely La Jolla home. We flew to the San Diego area to celebrate our grandson's third birthday with his parents and uncle, while my son studied for final exams and my husband studied for a medical board. The rest of us enjoyed the La Jolla coast attractions, including La Jolla Shores Beach and the sea lions and seals at La Jolla Cove. The home is conveniently in the middle.

This house is warm in its wooden surfaces, and light in its many windows and skylights. It has a string of 4 bedrooms on one end and a fifth one off a short hall from the kitchen. Each room is private and has easy access to an updated full bathroom, with fantastic showers (or shower over tub). All bedrooms have their own access to the outdoors.

We did not get to enjoy the outdoor spaces of this house, because the weather was rather cool, and we were away for most of the daytime hours. There is a huge, lovely back patio, with dining, heaters and a large television. There are also stairs to an upper deck with a wonderful sunset view. There is plenty of parking.

We did enjoy the wonderful kitchen and easy clean surfaces. The kitchen is generously supplied for cooking and dining. We cooked and baked, and found everything we needed. There is a spacious living area with great comfortable leather chairs and sofa, and huge flat screen tv. There is also a nice separate office area, which my son was happy to use. We also took advantage of the washer and dryer, and a roll away bed.

The house is perfect and a fun place to stay. David, the owner, is very nice and attentive and very easy to rent from. The location is very good. You will want to know that Torrey Pines, the front street, is very busy at various times, and has street traffic noises. The two bedrooms facing the street have white noise machines, which my son used and had no problems. The noise is not noticeable from the back facing rooms. There is a large gravel front court and bushes separating the house from the street, and a bicycle lane. You will need to enter and exit with care, and it may take a little patience to cross the street on foot. Other reviewers also mention this, and it's good to know going in, but it did not negatively impact our stay.

A very unique and inviting home; full of amenities,; good value; and overseen by a gracious host.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very much as described in the online site. Pretty much "as-advertised"! The one feature of the listing that was not included was its most important asset: namely, David the host! He was available and responsive to all of our needs, and his sincerity and warmth was clear: David wanted us to experience La Jolla living as 'residents' rather than 'tourists.' Customer friendly: I was very impressed that he was not only available to greet us, but to spend time orienting us toward the house and the immediate neighborhood.

David was also available by phone and email before the actual house stay, which was comforting.

We found the entire house clean and in order, and the description of distances to sites in the immediate community very accurate. The locale was perfect if you enjoy walking short distances the town. Proximity to the airport was a very, very big plus.

The home met the needs of our group: 6 adults and one baby in residence; and, ultimately, eight adults fitting around the outdoor and indoor tables in comfort. Ours was a family reunion, and it fulfilled the role of everyone able to enjoy 'hang-out time" together as well as the potential for individual privacy.

This was way, way better than staying in an area hotel. So I would book it again, and recommend it to family and friends!!!
