Guestbook comments from the owner

The rental was conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and fabulous art galleries. It is also close to Torrey Pines where my husband and son played golf. The condo was very neat, clean and fully equipped with whatever we needed. Terrie was delightful and addressed an air conditioning problem immediately. I would definitely recommend this condo to my friends. It was nice having a place to park our car.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for ten days for a family vacation. It was clean and fully stocked with kitchen items, towels, movies, games, etc. The wagon and water toys were a nice touch, too. Terrie was accommodating and available. It is walking distance from the beach, park, kayaking, and restaurants. The noise on the street from the master bedroom is a bit loud, but the busy-ness of the street made us feel like we really chose a "hot spot." : - ) We loved the condo and would love to return next summer!

If you want to stay in La Jolla Shores, this location is excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely convenient to coffee, restaurants and the beach (with playground for little ones). Literally 30 seconds from the Shorehouse Kitchen, which has an incredible iced macadamia nut coffee. Super convenient to UCSD and downtown La Jolla if needed. Having a garage space is key. The pictures are very accurate. We even had brand new chef's knives in the kitchen! A *lot* of games/videos/beach toys for the kiddos. Neat point - this was the first VRBO that had everything (switches, cabinets) labeled! Laugh if you want, but it saves time! The owner was super communicative and nice. Tip, if you're here in the summer, you can access this location by using side streets. Due to the location, you can easily avoid the clogged parts of La Jolla Shores Dr.

Perfect beach vacation home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

Based on the lovely photos and glowing reviews, I had very high expectations for this vacation home. I am delighted to report that our week here was even better than we expected! This second-floor apartment was beautifully furnished, spacious and airy, and had all of the amenities that we could possibly want. We truly felt like we were at home – – but in a much lovelier location. We enjoyed being so close to wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, kayaking outfitters, and a short walk from the beautiful La Jolla Shores Beach, where we enjoyed watching the sunset every night. What impressed us most was the care and attention by the owners. Terrie not only met us when we arrived, but she texted during the week to make sure we had everything we needed. Terrie even left us a new nonstick skillet on the doorknob so we could make eggs for our breakfast, without our asking. It was like magic!

We hope that we will be able to return to this perfect vacation home next summer!

Our family had a wonderful stay! The house was very comfortable and the floorplan is great for a family, while the bedrooms are private enough that you can get some alone time. The owner was so nice and thought of everything. We have been coming to La Jolla for many years and this is one of the best places we've stayed. The walk to the beach is quick and easy, and the wagon full of beach toys was so nice for our kids. We could travel light since everything we needed was there. Having your own garage in La Jolla is a definite bonus.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family especially loved this rental. It was very clean and well taken care of. Its obvious the owners care about each detail in making this rental feel like home, from the all-clad pans and heavenly bed to the great beach gear. Its in an excellent location and we enjoyed walking to one of the many nearby restaurants for a meal or coffee. Definitely our best experience yet with a VRBO rental.

Would Return Again Without Hesitation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental in La Jolla Shores is an excellent choice. We have stayed in many vacation rentals in the San Diego beach area as well as around the world. This rental is the most well managed and thoughtfully designed property in which we have stayed. We've returned multiple times and would again without hesitation.

The property is well stocked, very clean and well appointed with a comfortable king bed in the master. It has two full baths to accommodate multiple people at the same time. The bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house and provide some nice privacy. It is on the second floor with a garage below. There are windows all the way around the unit and no attached neighbors. The kitchen has every appliance, utensil, cookware and dish ware you would need. And it's well stocked with paper products and cleaning products. The unit is large and spacious. It's light, bright and attractively decorated. It's really a user friendly experience.

The rental is located within a block or two to all kinds of shops, restaurants, coffee shops and activities. La Jolla Shores Beach and Scripps Pier Beach are only a couple of blocks away. Bring groceries, park the car and walk everywhere if you choose. Downtown La Jolla, Prospect Street and the La Jolla Cove are a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive away as is UCSD, Scripps Aquarium, Scripps Pier, beautiful Blacks Beach, Torrey Pines golf course and glider port. That's all just within blocks to about 2 miles. The area is gorgeous and great for everyone (couples, retirees, families, singles). Endless activities or just walking at the beach and sitting in the shade of a palm tree watching the surf, are at your doorstep. There's great surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling and diving going on every day within walking distance.

On top of all of that, the owners/managers of the property are the best we've ever encountered. They truly care about your experience and go above and beyond to accommodate you. They are real professionals when it comes to property management and customer service in addition to being some of the most kind and thoughtful people you'll meet.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
