Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I grew up in San Diego but moved to the Rockies over 25 years ago. The beach has always moved my soul. One of my earliest childhood memories is going to Windansea Beach as a little girl with my family. This cottage is a welcome retreat where I rest, relax and rejuvenate from everyday life. Owning this charming home has been one of the best things I have ever done for living life to its fullest and staying connected with family, friends and everything that San Diego has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Windansea Community:
This location is absolutely perfect in everyway! It is walking distance not only to the most beautiful beach in San Diego but it is just a stroll (less than a minute walk) to restaurants and shops on La Jolla Blvd and Nautilus Street. Pearl Street is less than one mile to the north, where the heart of La Jolla Village awaits you with all it has to offer. Museums, parks, farmers markets, galleries, night life and some of the finest restaurants in San Diego. One mile south of the cottage is the little neighborhood of Bird Rock also filled with sidewalk cafes, coffee houses, bakeries and restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is fully appointed with all the comforts one would expect and then some! We even leave beach towels, bikes, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear and a boogie board for guests to enjoy. Be sure to check out the Zagat restaurant guide, left in the kitchen, to read about personal recommendations for great places to eat all over San Diego.
