Cozy and Comfortable La Jolla Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog just spent 2 1/2 weeks at Villa Tranquila as Nikki's guests, and we were so happy! We walked to the beach and the park and along the trail every day and ended up at one of the many dog friendly restaurants for coffee and breakfast. The shower is strong and hot and the bed very comfortable, so we slept hard every night and woke up for another round of walking. The Smart TV is big and excellent for watching football games. The WiFi is fast and reliable. The little yard is private and big enough to sit outside and have dinner or just catch a little sun in the afternoon. We found parking within one or two houses away every day. But most importantly, the hostess is wonderful, friendly and attentive, but never in an intrusive manner. We look forward to staying there again!

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.

Why The Owner chose Beach Barber Tract

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.
