"Such a wonderful experience and getaway with my girlfriend, brother and sister in law. I highly recommend this little getaway cottage with the perfect location to anything you'd like to do in the La Jolla and San Diego area. We were able to experience The San Diego Zoo, Gas Lamp District, Pacific and Ocean Beach as well as the wedding we attended at the Robert Paine Forum at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. The Birdrock business district was a very short walk away as well. The property was well maintained and clean, and Scott provided phenomenal customer service, going above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back next year!
Thank you, Scott! We were blown away!"

"My family and I recently spent a week here over spring break and enjoyed every minute of it. I am one of those people who puts a considerable amount of time into searching for places to stay when I travel because I want to be comfortable. However, I am also the type that knows what I like, so when I find something that appeals to me, I make an immediate decision--and this is what happened with the Hoffman house. Brant the property manager, responded to my email inquiry immediately. The contract was then emailed making the whole booking process very simple and pleasant. The house which is located in the Bird Rock area of La Jolla, looks exactly as photographed and I can assure you is in excellent condition. The furnishings are very modern and the home has a lot of custom touches like Japanese style screen walls that run on tracks, bamboo and slate flooring, and a sliding glass door unit that opens fully onto the patio. The house also is located on a large corner lot, one block from the ocean. One of my favorite areas of the house is the front deck which faces the water. Each morning I would sit and drink my coffee out there, and later in the afternoon enjoy some wine just looking out at the view and watching the military helicopters fly by. The deck has two chase lounges, ample seating, and charcoal bbq that we used a couple of times. Downstairs there is a small one bedroom apartment with kitchen. This unit has an external staircase only. As mentioned the house is on a corner lot, and this part of the street does have some activity due to it being nearby to town and a condo building being across the way. As shown in the photos, there are windows everywhere so it's sort of like being in a glass fishbowl. If you don't feel comfortable being exposed, the shades are all electric so you can adjust the different window zones by remote control. The kitchen in well equipped and has a wolf stove. As for the neighborhood, there is a park around the corner that overlooks the water and lots of large houses to admire. There is a CVS pharmacy and a Starbucks nearby that you can walk to and the closest food market was Haggens which did the trick. Further away is Vons and the furthest is Whole Foods. The Children's beach is about an 8 min drive and is a must to go to. The seals and sea lions are right there for you to look at. Pacific beach is less than a 5 minute drive. Downtown La Jolla has lots a great shopping and places to eat."

"My wife and our three kids were looking for a last minute VRBO close to my cousin's house in Bird Rock, CA. Well, this little gem popped up and was only a mile from where they lived. We had a really nice conversation with the owner and she made sure our arrival was an easy one. She left the key out under the mat (felt very safe) and there was also a little Banana Bread in the fridge for us:) You are literally blocks from the beach and the street parking was not bad at all. We will be coming back!"
