Recent La Jolla Shores reviews

  • Great location with old La Jolla charm

    "Elegant old La Jolla home in a great location that is a two minute walk to La Jolla Shores beach and a 10 minute walk to downtown La Jolla. The home has a great layout, providing three separate areas for gathering (western lawn and deck, living & dining areas and the large eastern patio), so the home never feels crowded and easily handles friends and family gatherings. The home has great views from the deck and patio, and I found myself quite content to sit on the patio and gaze up the coast for hours. While it's near a busy road, it's far enough away that road noise was never an issue. It's also far enough away from the main beach and downtown that parking is always plentiful and the neighborhood is quite quiet. There's a hidden beach access path 200 yards from the house, next to the Marine Room restaurant, and we used this access to go snorkeling with leopard sharks in front of the Marine Room, and to walk north toward the pier to go surfing and boogie boarding. We also walked into town a number of days and evenings for the restaurants and galleries - taking the Coast Walk trail to avoid the streets and enjoy the incredible views. A beautiful, relaxing and well located home - and it was a pleasure to pretend it was ours for a week."

  • Perfect Home!

    "We were in town for our daughters wedding at the Martin Johnson House. This home was perfect for our family (4 adults & 2 children)! We stayed in the rental for 8 days and it very quickly became home to us, which is important with 2 little kids in the house. Everything is there that you need in the house along with the grill on the patio to the beach items in the garage. My son especially like the quiet office space and used it daily. Coming from cold and dreary Ohio, I especially loved the beautiful courtyards and being able to open the doors and still not worry about the little girls getting out, as the house is all gated. The house is a short stroll to the beach, the playground and the local shops and restaurants. Brant Westfall was excellent to work with. He and his wife were quick to answer all questions I had. I highly recommend this home and will definitely book again"

  • Perfect La Jolla shores rental

    "We had a great time in this La Jolla gem! Six of us (including our daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids) thoroughly enjoyed being able to walk to La Jolla shores beach, but the house itself was also totally wonderful--very clean, nicely laid out with the master suite for us and the other two bedrooms and bath for them. Loved the shower, bath/shower and kitchen renovations. Even though it is a short block away from La Jolla Shores Drive, we heard no traffic noise other than a car that needed some muffler work! The view up to the Hillside Drive area and to the eastern hills is lovely, helped by the perfectly clear and bright days we were fortunate to have during our stay. The two-car garage is really great because street parking can be tight in this area. The beds are all very comfortable. The kitchen is lovely and well-equipped. Having the front gated area PLUS the back courtyard (complete with a fully loaded lemon tree!) for the kids to play safely was a real bonus. There is a pack n play in the bedroom closet. Since this wasn't mentioned in the listing, we had rented one with an additional softer mattress for our 19-month-old grandson, so probably he slept a bit better on the rental than on the basic mattress. We had a great time and would recommend this house to anyone looking for an authentic, traditional La Jolla experience!"

  • 3 Generation Spring Break

    "Our family has travelled fairly extensively with this being our 3rd home rental in the last few years (Orlando, Maui being the others) - so we have some basis for comparison. We have been to San Diego a few times in recent years and were looking this year to do a stay with our parents and teenage daughter in La Jolla. I saw this house last fall and thought it to be the perfect fit, but it was booked for the week we wanted. Imagine my surprise when one cold January day in Canada, we found that it was now available for our March dates.... There are many nice-appearing places in La Jolla, but nothing that seemed as perfect as this one, so we jumped on it when it came open. Very glad we did. All the good stuff has already been said... Location, location, location. Perfect for the beach, for access to down-town La Jolla, and for a quick trip to SD. The front deck and back courtyard give you all the options you need. Glass of wine or brew on the deck for sunset. Coffee in the courtyard in the a.m. when it is a little cooler in front of the house. I always find it helpful to read the worse reviews also, to get a different sense of what you are stepping into. I suppose that if a high-end hotel is your point of reference, you will find issues. There might be a little dust on a fixture in the corner somewhere, or a piece of caulking that needs replacing in a shower, or you might not get a matched set of wine glasses, but for us this stuff is trivial. Everything you need is there. It is such a dream to have a cold drink over the fire on the front deck, enjoying the view of the palm trees, the surfers and the waves breaking. I truly had that feeling you hope to get on vacation (but seldom do), where you can forget about the other stuff in your life and just enjoy a perfect moment in a perfect day. We had a couple of these moments. Regarding the property management, I didn't get to meet Brant, but we traded emails as necessary, and there was never a problem. He was very attentive and responsive. For newbees, I strongly encourage you to contact the property manager if you have any problems. We fretted over stuff on one of our other rentals (in Maui) for a few days, then called. In that case, the stuff was fixed in an hour once we called. Brant was equally keen to make the experience here positive whenever something came up. We'll be back!"
