Overview

About the property

Charming Craftsman Cottage nearly 100 years of history and charm.

Villa Tranquila was built in approximately 1923 and retains much of it's classic character. It has one regular bedroom, a small guest-room (no closet), private yard space, and lots of charm! It can be rented alone or in combination with one or two other cottages on the property.

Our lovely Villas are close enough to the beach that one can take a short stroll to enjoy a splash in the waves. After dinner, it takes but 3 minutes to walk down and enjoy a memorable sunset over the Pacific. One can also relax on the patio and hear the waves crashing at night. This property offers plenty of nearby street parking. Our Villas are in a residential area but within 2-3 blocks of restaurants, coffee, a bakery, boutiques, salons, convenience stores, yoga, convenience stores and a dog-friendly park.

~~ We offer a friends and family discount of 10-25%* off future stays, if your first stay goes well. If you were referred through the Luckydog Pet Sanctuary website we will honor the10-20%* off donor/sponsor rate. ~~

* discount is taken off the regular homeaway/VRBO price (after fees). Please inquire on details.

Villa Tranquila can sleep 6 comfortably but is best suited to families of up to 4. It offers a queen bed, queen sofa bed, and a full sofa bed. Villa Tranquila is located two doors down from Villa Serena, a beautifully updated home with the same floor plan minus the guest room (it has a larger living room instead), Between these two cute cottages is our little junior cottage, Villa Solana. You may want to see the smaller and more affordable. Villa Solana: https://www.vrbo.com/3851019ha.. Villa Serena is not yet listed on HomeAway or VRBO, but she is a beautiful home which can also sleep up to 6, so feel free to inquire if interested. The villas may be rented together for large families.

Please note: Stays of 5 or more nights may be booked well in advance. We typically only book stays of 1-4 nights if we have a small gap to fill between reservations, it's "last minute" or, the guest wants to book days which are less in demand (usually Monday,. Tuesday, Wednesday).

Thank you!

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

Choose Villa Tranquila if you just want a cute, clean place to rest peacefully between trips to the beach.

What makes this house unique

It's super charming! It's very close to the beach, but just far enough away to have plenty of parking. You can walk to everything you need and the farmer's market on Sunday is amazing. The city bus stop is right around the corner so one can easily get around without a personal vehicle. You can also rent one, two, or three cottages for your family or group.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nikki was great about showing me around and responding to questions promptly throughout my stay, but otherwise left me to enjoy my deliberate solitude in this warm, comfortable, and adorable home. Within a few hours of check-in I realized "Tranquila" is the perfect name for this home. The neighborhood was silent at night. During the day, the area felt peaceful, ye lively. I felt like I was on the set of the movie The Truman Show. I met several friendly walkers and a few happy-go-lucky neighbors. Now I am certain, I must move to this neighborhood.



My dog and I walked to restaurants, the barber shop and three different coffee spots. I took a short drive to try arial yoga and enjoy a raw, vegan meal at Trilogy. As for standard fare, I enjoyed some of the bar and grill eats of "The Shack" just 3 blocks away, and my dog was welcome on the shaded patio. The folks and dogs at the dog park welcomed me and my dog as if we were old friends. The beach at sunset had a few well-behaved dogs romping and enjoying the water. My pup was eager to join in. He was in his happy place and I was delighted by that.



I have never been to Heaven, but I imagine it to be a lot like this happy neighborhood. We've no regrets about choosing this spot, aside from one. We should have booked a longer stay.

Sweet Little Cottage by the Beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming little house, with a super charming manager. We loved that we could bring our Dingo! Comfortable bed, and plenty of room in the kitchen for preparing meals. I could walk to everything, and every night at 6, Gizmo and I were at the beach!. Top of the street there is a nice park, that has lots of happy people and their pooches. Comfortable bed, a bit loud of an air conditioner in this room. The manager showed us how to hook up the window fans to cool off the place and that helped with the daytime summer heat. We ended up using the add on room for our dressing area, as the bedroom is on the small side. Great TV and Movie selection, too!

Terrific location, perfect little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The beds were comfortable, the space was bright and open and had that true California beach cottage "feel". The location was just up the street from the beach. Short drive (medium-long walk) from all the shops and restaurants of La Jolla. We aren't dog owners, but although the place is well-outfitted for dogs, and dogs had stayed previously, I couldn't tell. Communication with the host was prompt. We would definitely stay here again.

Really cute vintage cottage, just full of charm!

Loved the patio area, private but not secluded. We look forward to returning, you can easily walk to beach & restaurants! The living space was nicely decorated & comfortable.

Great Location and Great Stay........

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place and the location was awesome. Everything was close to drive or even ride your bike. The owner was very nice and available anytime. I would stay here again and actually plan to make this our yearly anniversary spot!
