You will be able to truly live out your Southern California Vacation dream when you stay in the oceanfront Historic Luxury La Jolla Village Cottage. This home has been featured on the cover of a magazine and used as the set of a cooking show. It is also an annual stop on the Historic La Jolla Village walking tour and the San Diego Home and Garden tour. Its unique roof line and octagonal design make it a real treat if you happen to enjoy architecture. The cliffs in front of the house are known as Whale View Point. People come from around the world to sit and gaze at the beauty of the Pacific Ocean sunset at this very spot. On weekends you’ll see nearby artists painting at their easels, picnickers with bountiful feasts and couples reciting their vows in the nearby wedding bowl as the sun sets over the horizon.
When you wake up in the morning you can walk to the beach just outside your door for an early swim and then wash off the sand in your outdoor shower adjacent to the patio. Afterwards, you’ll be able to take the family into the village, just two blocks east, for a day of shopping, or visit the local museum and aquarium. In the evening watch the seals play on the beach, before walking back to the house to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. When you go to bed, you’ll fall asleep peacefully as the sounds of the ocean lull you into a deep slumber.
Parking at this home comes with garage space for two cars and the whole house comfortably sleeps ten guests. If you rent the entire house you’ll have access to five outdoor spaces—there are two patios upstairs and three downstairs! The best views can be found upstairs, so if you find yourself on the fence between renting the whole cottage or just the downstairs, we highly recommend you rent the whole home to have a vacation or business trip you’ll always treasure. This is an elegant, contemporary 2,700 Square Foot La Jolla Village Cottage. Modern upgrades including a Chef's Viking range complement the sun-splashed kitchen. Recently remodeled, and professionally designed, exquisite furnishings complete this fully equipped home with 5 flat screen TV’s which are 80inch, 65inch, 50inch and 42inch with premium cable in all 3 bedrooms and in the living room, WiFi, and all the amenities one would expect of a luxury home on an ocean front street. The house has a temperature control air jet swirl Jacuzzi, 2 larger shower area plus an outside shower in the yard. The private fully fenced backyard patio features a comfortable outdoor seating area for entertaining and barbecues. The furnishings are of the highest quality. Enjoy ocean views from every room of the house. You will enjoy three patios, one from each bedroom to enjoy the sunset. Walk just steps down a gentle walkway to find the finest white sand BEACH in sunny Southern California for your outdoor enjoyment. Watch the divers at the underwater marine park at La Jolla Cove. This home is the ultimate La Jolla cove luxury beach cottage.

We were blown away when we arrived at this beautiful cottage with its ocean view and plentiful windows that let the sea breeze drift through the house. Its three ocean-facing patios were perfect for enjoying breakfast or the breathtaking sunset while watching the waves roll in. The view from this gorgeous house is truly spectacular.
The trail that spans most of the beachfront was right across the street and excellent for an invigorating morning jog. We loved being able to simply walk down the street and relax on one of the many beaches or use one of the supplied boogie boards to play in the surf, and the outdoor shower on the back patio was great for rinsing off the sand. In the evenings, we had our choice of cooking out on the grill, using the fantastically outfitted kitchen or walking to one of the excellent restaurants nearby. The street on which the house is nestled was very quiet at night and inviting to beach visitors, picnickers, joggers and folks walking their dogs during the day. It was convenient to have a big, secure garage for our car, as parking can be hard to come by in busy La Jolla. Unless you plan a lot of day trips into San Diego, however, a car really isn’t necessary as there are fantastic beaches, restaurants, museums and activities within walking distance of the house.
After a fun-filled day, we absolutely adored falling asleep to the sound of the crashing waves right outside our bedroom window. We had an amazing experience and we can’t wait to return!

About: Our cottage is one of the few old cottages still standing where it was built. Many natives call it one of the original jewels. The Odell family bought it in 1957 and has rented it out as a vacation rental since 1996. I am the manager of the rental and keep it in fine tune for the new owner.
Why Village of La Jolla: Under new ownership and managed by the old owner, This house offers a unique spot on the ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: No one comes away from a stay without commenting on the comfort of our beds and towels. The views from very room in the house of the ocean are breathtaking. The best tidal pools are below us and the seals are a block away. We are just 100 yards from the wedding bowl. Our decks and balconies bring every guest a front row seat to sunsets.There is no other home like ours.
