Inside, you'll find state of the art LED TVs with premium cable package located throughout the house including in the 4th bedroom set up as a media room - so the kids can watch a movie while the adults sip wine on the patio. Cable, wifi internet will keep you connected and TVs are netflix enabled for you to access your account and catch up on your favorite shows.

A second bedroom with a queen sized bed and attached bath and a children's room with two twin beds and fun decorations complete the upper level, (other than the staircase which takes you up to the roof deck where two patio loungers await the sun worshippers amongst you.)
Downstairs we have top of the line appliances and fittings in our spacious open plan kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need - coffee machine, blender, food processor, chef's knives and baking equipment. Large granite workspaces let you can spread out while you cook and the bar stools allow those who prefer to watch, to enjoy a margarita while offering culinary advice! The formal dining room seats 8 so you can share your culinary masterpieces with your friends and family, with the french doors open to the front porch bringing in the gentle sea breeze. Or if you prefer more casual cooking and dining, fire up the BBQ and eat outside on the back deck.
If you don't want to cook, La Jolla Village is a short walk away with multiple restaurant choices (Indian, Thai, Chinese, woodfired pizza, Italian, modern American and casual brunch cafes and coffee shops).
Also a short walk is the lovely sandy beach at the bottom of the road, much quieter and less crowded than the main beaches of La Jolla, it is perfect for sandcastle building, watching the surfers or doing a little boogie boarding. Walk back to the house for a break and a snack, the outdoor tap is perfect for washing off sandy feet and there are beach toys available to ensure full scale sandcastle construction! There are many gorgeous beaches in the area - the one at La Jolla Shores is beautiful (5 minute drive) with a children's playground across the walkway and a parking lot nearby. La Jolla Cove is also a 5 minute drive (or half hour walk) with upscale boutiques, shops and restaurants and large grassy expanses down near the water. Stop off on your walk by the tidepools where the kids (and adults) can look for crabs and walk over the rocky pools watching the waves, surfers and maybe the odd seal.
If you are in La Jolla, you are just 20 minutes away from the attractions of downtown San Diego - the Gas Lamp district, Coronado Island, Balboa Park as well as SeaWorld, the world famous San Diego zoo and the Safari park. Or maybe a day's shopping at the Westfield Center is in order, followed by a pedicure or a movie. A short drive north (20 mins) will take you to Carlsbad and Legoland or enjoy a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway visiting beach towns like Cardiff by the Sea, Solano Beach and Encinitas. If you like racing, Del Mar is one exit north on the freeway, so the horses and the action are close! Del Mar also hosts the county fair every June.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are a bi-national (American/British) family based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We bought this house as we fell in love with the house, the location and all there is on offer and for our two young children, it is a perfect vacation spot. We own one other vacation property in Santa Cruz which is near the beach and packed with things to do in the area. Our extended family lives in Southern California and we found La Jolla to be a perfect spot for enjoying our own family vacation and also visiting in laws and friends in the area, with so much on offer, for all ages.
Why the Owner Chose Beach Barber: This is a truly fabulous house, located in one of the best areas of the country. It offers both privacy and unobstructed, 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean and large open plan living spaces both indoors and out. We love being near the Ocean and the San Diego lifestyle is very laid back. San Diego is only a short plane ride away for us so we use the property frequently ourselves and every time we visit, we find new things to explore with the kids, from tidepools to amazing restaurants to Legoland.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Wonderful 180 degree panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from the top two levels of the house. Three private decks, two with full ocean views. Shady back patio with BBQ, dining table and chairs and outdoor seating and sunloungers. The proximity to one of the quieter beaches in the area makes this a win for families with younger children though it is a great house for all ages with so much to do, you won't have enough time to pack it into just one visit!
