"We truly enjoyed our time at this wonderful home. As noted in previous posts: great views, great location and very clean and comfortable home. John, the owner, is a terrific person- very helpful and accommodating. For our needs the home is in a perfect location- Birdrock is charming, with several restaurants in walking distance as well as The Rush spinning studio, Yoga Yard and All About Animals pet grooming within a few blocks walk. Outstanding home away from home vacation."

"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."

"We have rented this property on two different occasions this year and we can't wait to go back. We will go back.
The location is amazing. Just north of PB, right on a bluff over the ocean with stunning views all day and all night. You can sit in this beautiful backyard for days, watching the waves, covered in surfers rolling down the coastline for miles. The pool and hot tub have a few years on them, but they are both are clean, beautiful and very fun. The large gas grill works perfectly. The outdoor furniture is comfortable. The deck right on the bluff is stunning.
The interior of the house is equally wonderful. When you open the front door you are immediately greeted with a sweeping view over the living room and dining are out to the backyard and the ocean. The large kitchen, living room and dining area share an open and spacious floor plan ad all share the magnificent sweeping view. The couch is amazingly comfortable and faces large flat screen. The three downstairs rooms are all very well equipped. One has it's own bathroom with shower and door to the backyard. There is another common bathroom with shower/tub combo downstairs. The upstairs master bedroom is very spacious, with a King bed, sitting area, walk in closet, and jetted tub. The garage is also very
The property manager, Carrie, has been incredibly helpful and responsive to our few questions and calls and has been a pleasure to work with on both occasions.
I give this place 5 stars without any hesitation."
