About the property


This residence is located on "Million Dollar Row" - Bird Rock, La Jolla - nestled on a tree-line street of multi million dollar singe family homes. This residence is a carriage house to the main home and is a unique loft configuration and was constructed new in 2007. An airy loft with soaring 14-feet ceiling and well appointed craftsman details offering you stunning ocean and city views from the roof top terrace. This home is in the heart of Bird Rock mere blocks to the waters edge and La Jolla Blvd. where you will find great boutiques, restaurants and one of the best coffee houses San Diego has to offer.

BRAND NEW,TOP-OF-LINE, POWERFUL CENTRAL AIRCONDITIONING HAS BEEN INSTALLED (even though really not needed as so close to the beach that the residence enjoys the cool ocean breezes) !

The first level of the loft is a finished ground level that features a Bistro kitchen and lounging area with large sofa for relaxing or watching TV (the brand new sofa pulls out into a double bed). This level also contains a full-size stacked washer and dryer and there is ample room for you to store bicycles, etc. The second level is the loft living space that has a brand new king pillow top mattress bed, and comfortable sitting area that features a full sleeper sofa and comfortable chair, a large flat screen TV and sound system, a bath with rain-head shower, ample built-in storage cabinets/closet, a table for 4 for dining inside and a balcony with lounge chairs to enjoy morning coffee, and new BBQ. The top level is a wonderful, ocean-view roof terrace with lounge chairs for sunning and a table for 4 for dining with a view!

The craftsman style details are noticeable throughout the home from the custom built-ins to hardwood floors to the amazing stain-glass windows and light fixtures found throughout the home. The space is a beautiful balance between being very open but still cozy and is full of natural light.

Street parking is offered and is very easy to find in this area.

Bird Rock is only a quick 10 min drive into the City of San Diego and a 2 min drive to the heart of La Jolla Village. Or better yet, rent cruiser bikes, and bike the great bike trails that connect Bird Rock to the La Jolla Cove and Village.

Look forward to having you stay in this airy craftsman loft; this space will not disappoint! Nor will the morning sunrise or the evening sunset from the roof top terrace space.

Why Lisa Widmier chose Bird Rock

This is a rare opportunity to stay in a home in a neighborhood filled with homes that are more than $1 million dollars. This home is as well. Welcome to La Jolla and “your home away from home”. In Spanish, La Jolla means 'the jewel,' and as a local resident of La Jolla, CA for more then 20 years, I am proud to call this ‘jewel’ home and look forward to you exploring and discovering this breathtaking, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean. Enjoy Your Visit & ‘Your Home Away From Home’

What makes this bungalow unique

I love the beachy, comfortable craftsman feel of this home. This home has good vibes.

Well located and furnished loft apartment perfect for a couple

  • 5 of 5

We were in La Jolla for two weeks to visit family and attend a high school graduation of our Grandson. The loft is beautifully furnished, starting with a very comfortable king bed. Although not a full kitchen, it was very adequate for us - refrigerator, freezer, convention oven, toaster, microwave and two cooking burners. There was an upper deck with an ocean view to enjoy and a Weber BBQ. The unit is at the back of the lot and enjoys a beautifully landscaped backyard and patio - again with a large builtin BBQ. On street parking was always available and we were just a short 5-10 minute drive from downtown La Jolla. We would not hesitate to stay at this location the next time we visit La Jolla.

A fantastic place to stay and linger

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with how communicative and reachable the owner was. The place looks even better than the pictures. Very comfortable, amazing sunsets from the roof deck. Great location - close to the beach, as well as a small commercial strip with restaurants, coffee shops, some retail. I stayed for over 30 days, and was very sad when I had to leave.

FABULOUS Week in LaJolla/Birdrock

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful little gem for a week and had an absolutely wonderful time! We thought it was in an absolutely ideal location, charmingly decorated, well kept, and really nice amenities. Two things we really appreciate are a great bed and shower, and this home provided both! It was also immaculately clean, which of course we also appreciate very much. The neighborhood was exceptionally quiet and pretty, and we loved walking down to the coffee shop and water ever day. It had wonderful access to downtown LaJolla as well as other towns along the coast that were great to visit. We also loved popping into downtown San Diego to see the sites. The owner was very attentive and we will definitely be back for another visit! Thank you for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise!

Best kept secret in Bird Rock...

  • 5 of 5

I spent six weeks in this fabulous little unit just a few blocks from the beach and close to everything. The owner was super attentive to my needs and everything worked wonderfully. I must point out that the bed was more comfortable than my bed at home, slept wonderfully every night. The unit is exceptionally quiet except for the distant waves from the ocean. The roof top patio is a great place for sunset cocktails or a sunny lunch. You are only a few blocks from the north end of Pacific Beach where I took a five mile walk every day! Perhaps the high point of my trip. Bird Rock is a wonderful neighborhood with great coffee houses, surf shops, yoga studios and lots of little non-chain boutiques. This is not a tourist area, it is a wonderful little high end village. Oh, did I mention that the unit was super clean? My wife and I will be going back and staying again soon. Lots of great memories. I would also like to tham Allison who lives in the main house. She is the sister of the owner and really made me feel at home. Thank you Lisa and Allison for a wonderful experience:-)

Beautiful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month at this lovely property on Waverly Ave. It was a perfect location for visiting San Diego and for enjoying the La Jolla area. The southwest exposure provided such beautiful light...especially in the morning...and gave us magnificent sunsets.

Lisa and Christina were very attentive to our needs and provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.

We are now off to another of Lisa's properties to spend a relaxing two months. I'm sure it will be as well appointed as Waverly Ave.

Thank you Liza, Christina...and John, the handy man, for a very pleasant stay.

Amazing location and views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and all nightly walks along La Jolla Blvd and the Ocean. The views from the roof top back into the city are amazing and so are the sunsets. We slept really well. We opened up all the windows and could hear the ocean waves nightly. The space has a lot of charm and character. It has everything we were looking for and more. We plan to book this place again.
