Great Location. Great for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my 10 month old daughter and had a wonderful time. The location is within walking distance to several restaurants/cafes as well as the Windnsea beach. Perfect family vacation location. Nice outdoor space and plenty of ammenties (including a highchair and pack n' play). Would definitely stay again.

Great house with yard near beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 spent 4th of July week in this fantastic rental. There was great on site parking for more than one car. Yard was fenced in and private. We ate at the Mexican restaurant just 50 ft from the front door and had the best Carne Asada tacos ever! For younger kids it is a bit of a walk down to the beach but for adults it is no problem(probably about a half mile walk). Beds and furniture was fine. Overall a great experience and we would rent here again.

Surprising and atmospheric cottage in La Jolla

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 families (4 adults and 5 children) and this cottage was perfect for our stay in San Diego. The cottage is surprisingly roomy and the garden is a lovely place for children and adults to play and relax. Be aware that this is an older cottage and things like window coverings and fittings could do with some maintenance and an update. We had a plumbing issue while we were staying and Sharon was quick and efficient in having it resolved. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking utensils and there was a good supply of shared ingredients in the cupboards. We walked (5 minutes) many times to the beach and played in the tide-pools. We also drove to La Jolla Shores (10 minutes) for a family day at the beach. The location is ideal for a relaxing beach-focussed stay in San Diego. Thanks for a lovely stay!

A perfect venue for a group of family or friends

  • 4 of 5

This delightful property accommodated my extended family for 10 days when we were visiting for my son's wedding.

We did a lot of entertaining and the extremely well stocked kitchen plus the great barbeque enabled us to offer endless meals to all our visitors.

The garden is a delight and was much enjoyed. It is fabulous being only 5 minutes walk from the sea and not far from the ice cream parlours and town centre.

The owners were most helpful and supportive when we had any queries or problems.

For us it was the perfect holiday home. Thank you to Alise and Sharon.
