Bird Rock condo description

Experience true California lifestyle with this gorgeous 2,200 square foot condo nestled in heart of the quiet, charming Bird Rock neighborhood of La Jolla. The Greek inspired architecture of the Santorini West Complex is the peak of grandeur, style and beauty. This place is truly a “paradise.” With ocean views and a quaint downtown shopping area, you will never run out of things to do. The Bird Rock neighborhood is a unique living experience – a cosmopolitan city with the tranquility of a small town.

As soon as you enter the first floor of the two story condo, the beauty is front and center – every room is professionally decorated, making for a quite charming appearance. The master bedroom is beautiful and spacious, with all white limestone and Mediterranean blue tile. It also has a full bath. Also on the first floor is the first guest bedroom. This room has a charming, shell encrusted twin-sized bed, and a queen-sized bed. The guest room has a luxurious bathroom with a walk-in steam/shower room.

The second story will take your breath away as you walk up the winding marble staircase to the main floor of the condo. The upstairs includes a large Ocean View balcony where you and your guests can enjoy alfresco dining and a refreshing ocean breeze. A gourmet kitchen will accompany all of your cooking needs. The kitchen includes a Blue Viking Range, beautiful marble countertops, and all of the cooking essentials. A second guest room is also located on the second floor.

Beautifully decorated, every room in the condo is a treat to visit. Professionally decorated rooms include the finest finishes, plasma televisions with premium cable, and fine linens that accompany every bed. Other amenities are also available to our guests. Use our exclusive underground parking spot ! Grab our beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, and take a relaxing bike ride to the beach. We have five bicycles available for your use. One thing is certain: the condo has comparable quality to that of a five star hotel.

Aside from the beautiful condo, the Bird Rock neighborhood is certainly a special place. Walk down the street and find some of La Jolla’s finest dining and shopping experiences. Fabulous restaurants of all varieties will keep your taste buds and palate guessing. Just a short bike ride down the boardwalk and you will arrive at the wonderfully relaxing Catamaran Spa. Take some time for yourself, and use guest passes which can be provided for a nominal fee. Other attractions nearby include the world-famous Seaworld, downtown San Diego, Lego-Land, Del Mar Race Track, and the renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course (which hosted the U.S. Open only a few years ago, and other PGA Tour events annually). You are also close to a number of beautiful, local beaches: Windansea Beach, Tourmaline Beach, and the Mission Beach Boardwalk. A CVS drug store is also conveniently located right next door.

Staying here will certainly leave you satisfied. The owner is an artist, and her magnificent shell-encrusted mirrors are lovingly placed throughout. You’ll feel at home, as notes with all of our favorite restaurants, attractions, and instructions are right at your fingertips. You will also have the luxury of using our long-time housekeeper, Biata, as maid service can be provided when needed. Stay with us and you will not be disappointed, as you enjoy Southern California at its finest.

                                My family stayed at this beautiful condo right after Christmas thru New Year's week. It was just what we were looking for. The condo was well maintained, very clean, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. The photos were very accurate and it was even more beautiful in person. The location was perfect; very quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants and grocery stores - most are walking distance. The beach access is vey nearby and easy access to highways. The owners were very accommodating and easy to reach for questions and was very easy to work details with from arrival to departure. We would love to stay here again. It definitely beats being in hotel rooms.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                                Owner response: Thank-you soo much for your kind words. Your family was a pleasure to have as guests in our home. We would love to rent to you anytime again in the future.

                                From the moment we arrived, everyone was thrilled with the property and the location. Convenient stores, restaurants, etc. just as described. The condo owners have put a lot of effort into making this a comfortable and enjoyable visit. We tried many of the tips for restaurants and were not disappointed. My son discovered Oscar's mexican seafood for fish tacos and went back a couple of times. I liked the French Gourmet. My daughter is importing craft beer to Hong Kong and so we visited many craft breweries. On a tip from a friend we visited the Cabrillo National Monument at Point Loma which had an incredible view. The owners were very accommodating and everything went smoothly for us all.

                                This is a large unit with secured underground parking. Walking distance to a number of restaurants, Starbucks and CVS. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to all of my questions. She also provided many suggestions for tourist destinations and restaurants. A short drive to Pacific Beach and La Jolla, but nicely away from all of the partying. The unit was well stocked with linens and kitchen utensils. Our party was a family of four plus my father-in-law. It worked very well as he had the bedroom on the upper level and we stayed in the two lower floor bedrooms. Many of the owner's personal items were kept in the unit, so it felt more like staying in someone's home than a rental unit.

                                We have rented this beautiful condo for three consecutive years with our good friends. Pictures do not even praise how beautiful and accomodating this property is. We absolutely LOVE it and have the best time. The condo is so spacious, 3 beautiful bedrooms, decorated with a designer flair, very beachy and cottage like. Each bedroom is so comfortable in all 3 rooms. The condo is very clean and meticulus. It has everything you need and more. Best of all, its easy to get to, easy parking, and such a fabulous location, minutes from the beach. There are such cute restaurants, retail shops, San Diego isn't too far, LaJolla is a couple of miles down the road, there are local coffee shops and the CVS is right next door,,,making everything available at your finger tips. The owners have taken great pride in this condo to supply everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The ouside terrace has great seating area, two umbrella's, ample seating and nice views of the beach. A great area to hang out in. We can't wait to go back again this year.......its the best!

                                This was an amazing experience. The condo is beautiful and fully equipped as described in owner's description. From the moment you walk in, a feeling of calm takes over. It is immaculate, comfortable and has the feel of an elegant beach resort. When we travel as a family, we prefer to stay in and cook some meals. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a fabulous Viking range! I felt very pampered. Sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and ocean view is so peaceful! The beach is a quick bike-ride away. Also, there are many San Diego attractions very close by...the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Scripps Aquarium, Gas Lamp District just to name a few. I would highly recommend this 5 start destination!!
