Village of La Jolla cottage description

You will be able to truly live out your Southern California Vacation dream when you stay in the oceanfront Historic Luxury Cove 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 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 cottage are known as Whale View Point. People come from around the world to sit and gaze at the beauty of the Pacific Ocean 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 eight 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.

Rental Options:

You may book either the main floor of the cottage (maximum 6 guests) or the whole house (with upper apartment, for a total of 8 guests).

Option 1: Main Level (allows for 6 guests)
The upper level apartment will not be rented during your stay.
The main level sleeps 6 but the master bedroom has a futon that allows for one additional guest.

Option 2: Whole House – Including Upper Level Apartment (total of 8 guests)
There is an apartment above the master and the garage that allows for 2 additional guests, for a total of 8 guests. It is available for rental when you rent the whole house. It has a queen bed, office, small kitchenette and huge bathroom with a full terrace off of the bathroom.

Room Descriptions

Living Room (In Main level)

This unique octagonal room is the perfect place to unwind. Relax on the couch by the fireplace with a book or watch T.V. on the HD flat-screen with cable.

Kitchen (In Main Level)

It’s recently renovated and ready for your gourmet delights. With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances working in this space will be a breeze. You’ll be able to enjoy cooking while partaking of ocean views and the company of friends and family in the dining room.

Downstairs Master Bedroom (In main Level)

From this room you will be able to wake up to ocean views and savor breakfast on your own personal patio. Outside there is a table for four and two deck chairs for sunbathing. The bedroom has its own private bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. Connected to the master bedroom there is also a very cozy den with a comfy couch and a big glass window from which to enjoy the sights and sounds.

Captain’s Room (In Main Level)

For some people, this is the best bedroom in the house as its cozy feel and architectural position gives the impression of being right on the water’s edge. It has its own personal patio with seating for two that’s ideal for morning coffee or tea.

Upstairs Apartment (Only available with rental of Whole House)

The most majestic views of the ocean can be found here. There are two patios, a kitchenette, an office and a huge bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks and a walk-in shower. The apartment repeats the octagonal design of the living room, as well as the unique tall pitched ceiling providing an extra spacious feel. And to top it all off a big king size bed along with a big flat screen TV.

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Our cottage is one of the few old cottages still standing where it was built. Many natives call it one of the orgional 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. I have been married to Steve Williams fo 36 years, have 5 grown children and 5 grand children. I was a middle school teacher for many years in south central Los Angeles. I love my family, the cottage and my job. .

                      Why the Owner Chose Village of La Jolla:
                      Under new ownership and managed by the old owner, This house offers a unique spot on the ocean. Nothing has been changed from it's past.

                      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.
