Bird Rock house description

Completely Rebuilt Home in Contemporary Coastal/Thailand-inspired Style in August 2012.

Want to be where you can walk or bike to everything? This La Jolla house is ideally situated in the wonderful seaside neighborhood of Bird Rock. It's the type of beach vacation rental where you can hear, taste, smell, and see the pacific ocean.

This custom-built home has 4 levels. On the first floor is our gourmet kitchen, open dining and living room, 2 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. You can cook and entertain at the bar with the new kitchen and dining layout. The sliding doors leading to the backyard and pool area disappear seamlessly into the wall and create the indoor/outdoor feel you want. LED lights and rope lighting allows you to set the right mood in each room in the house. The Samsung Smart-TV in the living room allows you to wirelessly stream any content you want from your iPhone, iPad or laptop - and of course just watch HBO/Showtime/NetFlix or the hundreds of other channels provided.

On the second floor we have a media room with an audiophile quality stereo system. The 60' TV, dimmable LEDs, and blackout shades lets you create the movie theater feel right in your house. We've also added a massage chair that can relieve sore muscles. Just outside the room is one of three decks in the house,

On the third floor, we have the a wet bar with a beverage refrigerator, a guest bathroom, the master bedroom and master bathroom, and an amazing and expansive deck with great views of the ocean. You can watch surfers out in the water riding some of the best waves in San Diego. If it gets a little cold you can turn on the outdoor infrared heater. The Master bedroom has blackout shades for a very restful night's sleep. The Bathroom 3 shower heads, a steam shower, deep 2-person bathtub, and switchable glass that lets you see the ocean from either shower or tub.

On the fourth floor, we have an office with a wireless printer, disappearing sliding doors and an amazing view - you can watch surfers all day while enjoying your favorite cocktail. Or...get some work done if needed.

The house is fully furnished, includes all linens and a fully equipped kitchen. This house is ideal for single families or small group of mature and quiet guests. This house is not available for parties, gatherings, or events and is strictly prohibited.

You have access to two bikes, a beginners surfboard and boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, library of books to borrow, and a beach umbrella. All you have to do is bring your suit and sun screen and you are ready to go!

Walk to Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, or downtown La Jolla Birdrock, or use our bikes to get their faster. You can walk to excellent restaurants, grocery store, café's, the list goes on and on...

Our La Jolla rental is located in a fantastic family friendly neighborhood where there is a beach entrance. Many of the local surfers prefer surfing the waves accessible in our neighborhood.

                  The best part of my vacation! 07/30/2009

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:

                  Greetings from a very relaxed VRBO Bear! I just had a wonderful vacation in the charming seaside town of La Jolla in San Diego, California. The best part of my vacation was this amazing house with a pool. The private pool and private Jacuzzi were the highlight of my stay. You will have a hard time finding a vacation home so jam packed with comfort, style and relaxation.

                  The host of this lovely vacation property has thought of all the comforts of home, plus many added luxuries for your enjoyment. Each evening, I had a beautiful ocean view from the balcony, where I relaxed on the comfortable patio furniture. The wonderful master suite on the top floor offered sights and sounds of the ocean from the windows facing the coast. The feather beds, memory foam mattress and feather pillows guaranteed a good night’s sleep. The gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, gas stove and granite counter top complimented the stylish modern décor.

                  The owner provided all the beach accessories one would want for the ideal beach vacation- boogie boards, bikes, beach chairs and a beach umbrella. Access to the scenic Bird Rock coastline of La Jolla was super convenient- just a few blocks away. After a day of sightseeing and hanging out at the beach, it was nice to return home for a full body massage in a leather recliner chair while sitting in front of the big flat screen TV. As a plus, Wi-Fi was provided, which no Bear can live without these days!

                  There is so much that I could see and do here in San Diego! I have to admit that although I love to travel and see new places, this is one vacation home I would return to over and over again.
