Village of La Jolla cottage description

The Yellow Cottage of La Jolla is a charming historic Victorian cottage, only three blocks from a semi-private beach, and a three minute drive to the well known La Jolla Cove. Galusha B. Grow built the cottage in 1895 as a summer vacation home. In 1980, it was relocated and renovated by a local historian and her husband. The cottage has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine and many other papers and periodicals. The Yellow Cottage is a beautiful example of period renovation combined with modern convenience.

The home is bright and cheery with comfortable furnishings. The full kitchen is complete with breakfast nook, dishes, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, refrigerator, oven and stove, as well as all kitchen items necessary to prepare any meal. There is a working gas fireplace in the living-dining area along with a dining table. The living area is furnished with a 27" TV, VCR, full cable channels, and CD/Tape player. The house also comes furnished with wireless internet access, phone with answering machine, scrabble, Pictionary, puzzles and other games too.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor and has a king-sized bed, 15" TV and VCR, two closets and reading lights on both sides of the bed. The second bedroom is located in the loft. It has a queen-sized bed with a twin-sized trundle bed, and reading lights near the bed. All linens (sheets, pillows, blankets, bath towels, beach towels) are provided.

There is a full bathroom on the second floor, a sink and mirror in the second bedroom and a half-bath on the first floor off the living room.

The Yellow Cottage shares a quiet yard/patio area with a neighboring historic structure, which is ideal for barbecues and outdoor dining. The home's picturesque front porch complete with rocking chairs, and private deck off the dining room, provide wonderful morning and afternoon locations to enjoy the Southern California sun. Laundry facilities are located in the home for your convenience.

There is high-speed internet access throughout the property for your laptop computer. We also provide adult size beach cruiser bicycles, boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler so you can enjoy the area the way we locals do. For families with small children, we provide a high chair and pak-n-play crib. Upon request we can also provide additional baby items such as a full size crib, jogging stroller, bed rails, noise monitor, etc.

In addition, we offer full concierge services. You can order discounted attraction tickets, food and dairy products to be delivered to the home prior to your arrival. We can set dinner reservations or tee times for you, and we can help you with planning any other activity or special request you may have.

There are two off street parking spaces provided in the driveway. This home has forced air heating but does not have air conditioning.
