Situated on a flat lot, guests are greeted with a circular driveway with convenient off-street parking. The front gate enters to a private courtyard which includes a deck with grill and outside seating. Entering the front door you will find the Parlor/Entertainment room with a 60" flat-screen tv. Continue through the Foyer and enter the Great Room - an open space which includes a formal dining area (seats 10) and fireplace seating area. This room features 12' ceilings and an expansive wall of tall windows. The kitchen adjoins this room and includes a breakfast dining area (seats 6) which accesses the courtyard.

This is a really great home within close walking distance to La Jolla Shores Village and Beach, and in an area of La Jolla Shores with lower density and larger lot sizes.

The location doesn't get any better than this!

About Rick and Belinda

We love the community of La Jolla Shores! Our family is involved in many of the activities this location has to offer - surfing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, bodysurfing, running, cycling and more. We have a second home in McCall, Idaho, were we spend much of our time - thus making our beautiful La Jolla home available to you!

Rick and Belinda purchased this house in 1990

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed here and we'll be back. The house is so unique (we're fans of this style of architecture) and the proximity to the beach is a short walk that takes you through the entirety of La Jolla Shores. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you might need as is the house itself (towels, beach towels, etc). It's very spacious and conducive to just hanging out and relaxing. It's always sad when we have to leave.

You can tell the owners put a lot of thought into making sure guests have everything they need during their stay. We had an amazing time.

Comfortable, beautiful and well located

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a two-week stay, one with family, the second with friends. It offered comfortable space for eight of us in the first week - the great room ideal for all of us to congregate and a big long table for fine dinners - plus a separate room for the kids to watch TV and bedrooms large enough for teens to retreat to. Our friends had to cancel their second-seek visit, so there were just two of us, but because of the house's warm design we did not feel we were rattling around in space. The great room's wall of large windows looked out onto a beautiful garden with a pink-flowered vine on its back wall. The beach was an easy walk so we could slip down to see the sun set. Between the house and the beach were restaurants and coffee shops, as well as places to rent bikes or kayaks and wet suits to enjoy the ocean. La Jolla Village itself was only a 30-35 minute walk, with a larger array of restaurants and shops. The kitchen was well supplied and easy to work in, with an amazing 1940s stove that worked better than our new one at home. Beach towns and body surfing boards were supplied. The owners were very responsive to inquiries. This is not a house of contemporary glitz. It is mid-century modern ( a book about the architect is on a shelf in the great room) with gentle upgrades to the bathrooms and a well-designed kitchen. Gorgeous high ceilings. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

Rented the home for some of our partners to stay in and meet in for a semi-annual team meeting. This home has beautiful furniture, the rooms are spacious and the home is very well maintained. We have rented larger homes a couple of times each year for the past 8 years or so, this home by far is the best home we have had the opportunity to stay in. The team voted that they hope the home will be available for our next meeting. Thank you for the opportunity to utilize your home for our partners team meeting.

Charming, Spacious Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This charming mid century modern home was an absolute highlight of our weekend trip to San Diego and La Jolla. The pantry had all of the essentials. The decor is in keeping with the style of the house and comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of bathrooms. It is practically across the street from great dining and activity options. I would say the only slight downside was it was pretty chilly the first night we were there and the nest thermostats required a code to be able to change the temperature. The front of the house was a bit warm and the back rooms were a bit cool. But this was only a slight inconvenience and would not keep me from staying here again in the future. We felt so lucky to find this gem of a home and are grateful to the owners to trust us with this spectacular property.
