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.

Perfect place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family of four. Along with the great location and cleanliness, the owners have thought of all the details for a great vacation. It has air conditioning as well. Terrie included all the beach equipment you need for your family. Terrie is very easy to communicate with and makes sure your stay is comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

This is without a doubt the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The standard of everything provided was excellent and the service from Terrie was brilliant. The description was very accurate but it was the attention to detail which made it exceptional. Terrie had thought of everything...... The beach equipment and towels for example - not cheap tacky towels but really luxurious and soft. The cool box - on wheels which could hold drink and food for a family of four without any issue was great. The kitchen utensils - everything was there. Her communication was excellent and very felt that we were very well looked after throughout our stay. I hope we get another opportunity to book this oasis and if you are lucky enough to be able to book it I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Great location, airy, spacious, bright, comfortable, and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Terrie is a wonderful host. She seems to have thought of everything. She is very nice, welcoming and helpful. The apt has a beautiful terrace with a bbq that we enjoyed often. And the garage is stocked with all the details you might need while travelling with kids: beach chairs, bodyboards, sand toys, coolers and even a very comfotable cart which helped us carry all that stuff to and from the beach.

I've rented out many places before. The combination of great location, cozy comfort and great host make this one my best experience yet. I would not hesitate to recommend it and I will surely return.

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!
