La Jolla Shores cottage description

'Truel's Cottage' is located in the 'Heart of La Jolla Shores'. Park your car.... everything you need including restaurants, shopping, surf & sand is within a block of the cottage. In addition, the beautiful village of La Jolla with its many shops, art galleries and restaurants is just a short pleasant coastal walk from the cottage. Vons. Ralphs and Trader Joe's grocery store are just 5 minutes away by car.

Enjoy breakfast on the front porch while you watch beach goers stroll by on their way to the world famous La Jolla Shores Beach. After you enjoy a day at the beach, retire to the back patio for a barbecue and dine alfresco with family and friends. Or if you prefer, walk across the street and dine at one of the many award wining local restaurants. This home is nicely decorated with TV's, appliances, dishes, towels & linen. The property is fully fenced and gated offering you privacy and security.

Ask about our free guided kayaking tour to the seven cave of La Jolla with your 7 day stay! Or purchase San Diego Padres tickets (right behind homeplate) at Petco Park and enjoy a summer evening at the ballgame. These seats are not always available so book early!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We bought this property in 2007 from the estate of Truel Simpson. Truel was a dressmaker to the 'Rich and Famous'. Truel and his wife lived in the cottage and sold his fashionable dresses from the shop next door for almost 50 years.

                      Why the Owner Chose La Jolla Shores:
                      This property is unique because it is in the 'Heart of La Jolla Shores Village'. When you stay at the cottage your imagination brings you back to when La Jolla was a sleepy little sea side village.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Park your car in your reserved carport and walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Or just sit on the front porch and watch the world walk by.....
