La Jolla Beach Rental
La Jolla Beach Rental
For the price, I was actually a little disappointed in the rental. It was clean and spacious, but its age is definitely starting to show: some doors and windows did not open and close which made it difficult to get a nice breeze going inside and some of the patio furniture was starting to rip and tear. Its location was terrific, just a few doors away from the beach, but the street it was on has a LOT of apartments which made for a more transient neighborhood than I would have expected. Overall it was a good vacation, but again, for the price we paid, I would have expected excellent.

Owner response: We are truly sorry that the house did not meet your expectations. Windansea is an eclectic, suburban beach community so it does have condos, beach cottage and high end homes. It is accurate that the roof top Italian furniture is starting to weather around some of the edges but the sea air and salt is harsh on even the most expensive furniture It is still fully function, comfortable and high end as can be seen from our photos. We are also sorry you had difficulty opening doors and windows. Sometimes those too are sticky in the humid summer. We have never had people complain about that before and I only wish you had told us as we are very ready to resolve problems as they occur. We own the home and like to ensure everything is in great shape for ourselves as well as our renters. The breezes through the house are wonderful as there are so many sliding doors and windows.Once again we apologize for not meeting your expectations. We are pleased though that you still had a nice vacation. We have had 100% satisfaction with all our guests and reviews in the past 7 years and as an owner I am sorry we disappointed you.

Spectacular House - Perfect Rental Home
Spectacular House - Perfect Rental Home
We absolutely loved our stay in this house. Before we even arrived the owner made sure we had all kinds of information about the house and the area. While we expected the house to be nice, we were blown away by just how wonderful it was. One of the greatest things about the property is how open it is to the outdoors. This is not completely obvious in the photos, but there are several areas of the home that have large triple sliding glass doors that can be opened up. For example, there are two sets of these large, and very tall, doors in the main living area of the house. Once you open them up, it is almost as if the walls disappear and your indoor living room is now open to your outdoor courtyard. While the courtyard is close to the street, the landscaping and stone walls make it very private. My husband and I loved having a cocktail or dinner out there in the evening (after dark the landscape lighting is gorgeous), and just enjoying the view from the living room if we were relaxing inside. The views from the master bedroom are incredible. Two walls are almost completely glass, and again, one of the walls can be opened up using a large sliding glass door. You go to bed and wake up in the morning listening to the ocean and surrounded by the tops of palm trees. Another plus for the property is that it is in a very quiet area, it was rare to hear much noise at all. The master bath is also spectacular, with two walls almost entirely of glass. This room also has one full wall that can open up to the outside and a private patio. While completely open, it did feel relatively private. If you were not interested in having any of the windows open, throughout the house there are shades for privacy or light/sun control. The top floor had a great sundeck and dining area which we used frequently, especially in the evening. The owner was great to work with and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We were very sad to leave this beautiful property and would recommend it highly.

Believe what you see in the photos. We arrived with our three children and were instantly in love with the home. The garage is stocked with beach chairs, a kayak, a few beach toys that can be used at Windandsea beach, which is less than a block away. The beds were comfortable, the auto-retractable blinds were a nice touch and the second-floor laundry was priceless. The village is in walking distance, although we typically drove. Don't miss breakfast at the cottage and a cupcake at Cups. Vons is just down the street for groceries and the owner has conveniently left a Vons rewards card for discounts on the groceries. Our favorite place within this home was the roof. Watch the surfers, listen to the nighttime beach band, or just soak up the sun. We saw the sights, but the kids were always happy to return and hang out on the roof! Jennifer

Owner response: Your review will be most helpful to future renters.Thank you. So thrilled you enjoyed yourselves. I was a pleasure having you as renters.
Very close to the Windandsea beach for those who love the beach. If you haven't seen it, it is a great beach. You have great views and incredible sunsets from the third story deck that is serviced by an elevator with a butler's cart, making it easy to take food and drinks upstairs. There is a dining table for eight on the top deck, plenty of seating and a grille for those so inclined. There is a study/family room with a big screen TV in the room in case part of the group wants to catch some TV. The second floor contains a fabulous master with a very large master bath and closet plus its own balcony. The second floor has two additional bedroom suites with plenty of closet space and their own balconies. There is also a laundry on that floor. the first floor has a open family room/ kitchen/ dinning area that has all the amenities and features you could ask for. The kitchen has everything you need for those inclined to cook. The living room and outdoors deck table on the first floor are bonuses. The first floor also has a half bath as well as the fourth bedroom suite. This is a great home for a couples' retreat or for a family outing. it is well decorated, well cared for and very well designed. Part of our family rented a another home that same week. They paid the same as we did per day, and every time they came to visit they were green with envy. Rental homes like this are hard to find. A couple more items that were notable included the two car garage which is a real bonus given the parking issues that can occur near the beach. The garage has a one person kyack, boogie boards and bycycles for the sports oriented. If you stay here, you won't be dissappointed. The owner was great to work with. Summary in one word, fabulous!

The home is AMAZING. Right off the pages of Beautiful Homes Magazine. The chefs kitchen is a cooks delight. The top floor entertainment area is fantastic. Gas BBQ, large sunning area with a full view of Windan Sea Surf Beach. Every room is equipped with great beds and bedding. The owner was like having a concierge for the property. She made sure we knew everything about the home and area before our stay. She also was in touch via phone at our arrival to answer any questions we had. Can't wait to go back
