Clean, neat modern studio in walking distance to all of La Jolla.

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional hosts, clean, neat, and modernized studio with all supplies (including wine, chocolates, and daily newspapers!) that were needed. Very comfortable and quiet outdoor patio area within an easy walk to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shopping, and the shore. No need to rent a car if you stay here and are looking to stick to La Jolla. The host was very gracious, accessible, and professional. We enjoyed a very quiet and private stay when at the apartment. Would definitely use again if we need a studio in La Jolla. Thanks!

Fabulous apartment walking distance to beaches and shops.

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Lisa were fabulous hosts. The apartment was comfortable and cozy with special touches such as cupcakes for my birthday and Peets coffee and the newspaper in the morning. The garden space was inviting and comfortable to drink our am coffee. Bed was comfortable.

We hope to visit LA Jolla again soon.

Thank you,

Randi and Frank

A slice of comfort and tranquility in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was wonderful. We had everything we needed to enjoy a week in La Jolla with our son and his family without being under their feet (and roof) 24-7. Just far enough off the the beaten path to be tranquil. Our hostess and host could not have been more pleasant! The patio garden was exactly what I was looking for and the quality of the entire place was well appreciated. Perfect!

A beautiful Back Yard - Small, Clean & Inviting Studio

  • 5 of 5

Our host Lisa and her husband were absolutely wonderful people. They made us feel welcome and answered any questions we had at any time. Questions that we had were about what restaurants to go to or other places we should check out. A nice touch was we received the newspaper every morning at our door step :) It was our honey moon and she thoughtfully provided us with two small bottles of campaign for us to celebrate. No oven, but stove top and the BBQ were more than sufficient. Access to shared washer and dryer has very helpful as well. Being able to relax in the backyard and watch to humming birds come to feed was also a nice relaxing atmosphere. Their son lives in the studio above the one being rented, and he is very friendly yet very quiet and were not disturbed in the least by them. There was no couch, or sofa chair in the studio, for relaxing we went outside in the garden and used the patio furniture. Thank-you very much for being such gracious hosts.

Absolutely wonderful Studio!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem of a studio has a central quiet location in a very beautiful neighborhood. Everything about the property was well cared for. The studio is tucked away from any noise in a cute courtyard. Inside it was immaculately appointed with lots and lots of light. The bedding and towels were A-1 quality. You can tell the owners are very proud of their property by the details. Lisa was so welcoming and laid out for us lemon pound cake mini muffins, bottled water, fresh flowers and the morning newspaper. Absolutely loved it and will stay again thank you Lisa!
