"Our family rented both beach houses for a week! It was close to the beach...but LaJolla shores has free public parking so we actually loaded cars with gear and drove everyday! It is a great location...it's close to busy streets but we didn't mind. We had many fun games of hide and seek in the homes...which was a blast...there are a lot of nooks and crannies around! The owner was kind, and helpful!
We had the perfect family get-a-way!"

"This is a wonderfully-located house just steps from La Jolla Shores beach. It’s well-equipped and has two large double bedrooms. There’s also a third sleeping area that we didn’t actually use. The location is really great, with the La Jolla Shores cafes etc a 2-min drive or 10-min walk, and downtown La Jolla was an 8-min drive away. Several supermarkets under 10 mins away.
There were lots of beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs for us to use. New high-spec washer and drier which is a real plus when travelling with an active kid. There is aircon but we never used it; the house gets a nice breeze all the time.The owner was really helpful and flexible.
Make sure to visit Caroline’s Cafe by the beach for great breakfast."

"My husband and I spent our wedding weekend in this beautiful, cozy cottage. We were married up the street at the Martin Johnson House and this home was a perfect retreat. We live in San Diego but wanted to be closer to the venue without staying in a crowdy hotel. The location you could not have asked for better! With our venue a half mile away, the cottage also served as the grooms and groomsmen getting ready headquarters. Plenty of space for 6 men to get ready and take amazing photos in this quaint cottage. The two bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and a good size. With a market down the street and the beach a couple blocks down, the location could not be beat! On top of a perfect location, the cottage was impeccably clean, the beds were big and comfortable, and the kitchen was fully equipped for anything we needed. My favorite room in the house had to be the front porch! It was perfect for a morning coffee, taking in the ocean breeze and relaxing after our wedding. The garden was well taken care of and you could tell the owners take great pride and work into their cottage. Bob and his wife were a delight to work with and so welcoming to our big weekend. Our wedding weekend was perfect and Truel's Cottage had a big reason for that!! This cottage will always hold a special place in my heart."

"We stayed here for five nights in May 2015. The location was ideal for us. We found the unit to be clean and pretty well cared for. Having a garage in this neighborhood was a big plus. The area is very quite at night and you can hear the surf if you open the windows. The kitchen was not as well stocked as other rentals that we have had therefore, we did not cook very much. The grill had a tank of gas installed and a spare. We were able to use the front patio every day (even in the mornings). Pillows need to be replaced. There are plenty of towels. There is a great supply of stuff that you need to go to the beach (including chairs and umbrella) in the garage. All in all, it was a great stay."
