Property description

Our home is very comfortable for people who enjoy the beach. There is a shower in the backyard for showering off after swimming, surfing, diving, or just playing in the sand. There are boogie-boards and sand toys for your use, or beach chairs, if you prefer. It is steps from the stairway to the beach at the parking lot of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UCSD.

A pleasant walk down the beach or along the street about one-half mile south brings you to Kellogg Park and playgrounds. Just beyond are restaurants; shops; surf boards, diving equipment, bike and kayak rentals. A short walk the other way, just beyond the Scripps Pier, you will enjoy tide pools at low tide. The Birch Aquarium at Scripps is 1/2 mile away. La Jolla Village is two miles away and has everything the big city has, but in a quaint setting by the sea. Balboa Park, with the San Diego Zoo and many different museums, is just a 15 minute drive. Sea World to the south, about 10 miles and Legoland to the north, about 18 miles are easy to get to, just off I-5. The beautiful Torrey Pines Golf Course is 3.5 miles away. The UTC Shopping Mall has everything and is a 10 minute drive. The La Jolla Playhouse has three theaters and performs live plays all year long, it is a 5 minute drive.

Our home has a two-car garage and parking for four more cars in the driveway.

It is a fun house to enjoy!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: I am a grandmother, actually a great-grandmother. I tried renting our home through a realtor but my son and I decided to try it by ourselves when the listing expired. We are both enjoying the experience very much, tourists are very nice people.

Why the Owner Chose La Jolla Shores:
This property was our home and we had to move into a condominium because my husband had experienced physical limitations forcing our move to keep him safe, five years before he died. We had really enjoyed this house along with our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is just about 200 steps away from the stairway to La Jolla Shores beach. It is one of the best surfing, body-surfing, boogie-boarding, diving, tide-pooling, beach-walking, sand-playing beaches in the world. A short walk down the beach, there are playgrounds with picnicking on the beach or grass. We enjoyed watching many magnificent sunsets sitting in the living room of our home.
