Village of La Jolla house description

The Sunshine Cottage is the quintessential beach cottage set in a lovely garden setting.

Park your car in the driveway and open the white picket fence gate to take the manicured path up the front steps to the porch and front door.

Enjoy the front porch on warm evenings for a quiet cocktail after a day at the beach.

Inside the Cottage you will notice the hardwood floors throughout and the spaciousness of the cottage.

The living room has comfy couches, a flat screen TV, Cable and Wifi.

The dining room is located off the living room and kitchen and comfortably seats 6.

The kitchen with its brightly colored Mexican tile, comes with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven, and is fully equipped for your cooking and eating needs.

Enjoy the BBQ in the backyard and dine el fresco in the lovely private back garden.

The Sunshine Cottage has 3 bedrooms, the master suite has a King bed and ensuite bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The second bedroom has a queen bed with lots of closet space. The bathroom for the second bedroom has a walk in shower and is shared with the 3rd bedroom. The 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds and is light and airy.

Located just 3 blocks from Windansea Beach, you can also comfortably walk into town and there are several lovely restaurants and eateries just a couple of minutes away.

The Sunday farmers market is a must as are all the galleries and shops in La Jolla.

Enjoy the Seals at the Childrens Beach and take a short drive to La Jolla Shores for Kayaking and more beach fun.

Within minutes of Scripps Aquarium, it is a short 15 min drive to Seaworld, 25mins to The San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, The Gaslamp District and Petco Park.
