About Lisa Widmier

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’

Lisa Widmier purchased this house in 2011

Why Lisa Widmier chose La Jolla

It is modern, and has a very open floor plan. And is mere blocks from WindandSea Beach; famous for being one of the best places in the world to watch the sunset. You can view the sunset from the dining room, living room and master bedroom.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place has been like home to us for the last 3 months! With clean amenities that offers everything you need, a quick walk to the beach, and great options for restaurants and shops, it is easy to love this place. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen is stocked with everything you may need, and the quaint little backyard seating area is perfect for a backyard bbq. The place also comes equipped with beach supplies like boogie boards, beach chairs, and towels. Overall, I would recommend this place for short or long term visitors!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We thought the location of the property was excellent. We were able to access the beautiful beach at the end of Fernglen. We also were able to walk to town many many times. La Jolla was beautiful again.

We thought that the kitchen Was stocked beautifully. There was nothing that we needed or wanted. We really appreciated having the spices available as soon as we got there.

The entry system is very convenient. The air conditioning and fan work beautiful people are beautifully. The patio in the back of the home with the lounge chairs and a table and barbecue were in great shape and were very useful.

We will recommend this property highly to anyone that asks. We definitely will return next year.

Well located comfortable second floor apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is nicely furnished, clean, bright and in a good location far enough away from the main La Jolla center to minimize noise, but close enough to walk to all shops, the beach and restaurants. The neighborhood was very quiet. Because our stay was for two months, a couple of "homeowner" issues popped up, but the owner responded very quickly and addressed them. We had a nice ocean view and enjoyed many sunsets.

Very well furnished (2nd floor) duplex, but....

  • 5 of 5

WiFi was terrible. We informed the owner twice. The router seems to be located in the rental on the ground floor. It was reset twice, but without success. We had to use (for only 2 devices) an open (unsecured) Apple network from a nearby residence that we could open without password. On the last day of our stay the owner informed us that WiFi was upgraded from 20 to 100 mb, but still we were disconnected many times. The backyard is not private and has to be shared with people who rent the ground floor of this duplex. An outdoor retreat in front? Sorry, we have not seen it. There is a yard with artificial grass in front of the duplex without furniture, only underneath the stairs and right in front of the ground floor unit are 2 chairs and a table with a direct view of the staircase. The nearest beach is rocky, only at low tide there is some sandy beach. But if you look for a really very nice and comfy house not too far from San Diego (like we did) and you don't need secured WiFi, this 2nd floor of the duplex is absolutely recommendable.

Great condo near beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed here in mid August for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the condo. It was two blocks to the beach and walking distance to local restaurants, including an amazing weekend farmers market. The condo was immaculate and air-conditioned, it was unusually warm the week we stayed. We used the barbecue and enjoyed having the large shaded space for relaxing. La Jolla is spectacular, much nicer than the coast near LA, we are hoping to go back in the future. My only constructive suggestion would be to have more plates and bowls of varying sizes, we used most of them at breakfast and then had to run a half empty dishwasher, not very eco friendly.
