"My husband and I were looking for a winter retreat and we hit the jackpot with Garden Cottage. Cozy, clean and comfortable, tastefully appointed, lovingly landscaped and private, the cottage answered all of our needs. The area offers so much: La Jolla with its shops, restaurants and beaches would be enough, but there is also the draw of San Diego and its many points of interest, such as the Zoo and Balboa Park, the Aquarium and Sea World. We hope to return to the Cottage and would enthusiastically recommend it to friends. Bruce was a great host and even emailed to remind us of the weekly Sunday farmer's market within walking distance, another must-do. What did we love most about the Cottage? Its backyard garden oasis, with two fountains and soft night lighting."

"We celebrated Easter and my wife's parents' 60th anniversary here. To say the house blew everyone away is an understatement. It's beautiful and has everything you could imagine. Just when we thought it didn't have an item, we'd find it.
The quality throughout the home is wonderful. It's great for entertaining. Bedrooms are very spacious. Kitchen fantastic.
Location is up in hills but you're a 5 min drive to La Jolla. And view is terrific.
Glenn and Kimi are awesome. Great communications, everything was nice and easy.
We'd all go back in a heartbeat."

"The location cannot be beat. It is smaller than we expected due to much of the square footage being taken up in hallways but once you get used to that it is very comfortable. The second bedroom is very small. The owners could not have been more accommodating, responding quickly the any questions. One covered parking space but extra outdoor parking is easily available. Balcony is small and view is of the street. well furnished."

Wonderful location, not so wonderful furniture, but that's the only small problem!
"This site includes a very private and quiet place to stay in La Jolla. You can truly walk to a lot of things. Great parking nearby. Not much to look at outside the condo back door but the rest of La Jolla is outside. The furniture (although it states that it's new)all appear to be worn and shabby chic/ beach used. The beds were okay... In December we needed the heat and that was difficult to modulate. Otherwise clean and nice. Would love for the owner to put new cooking pans in the unit, as they were completely torn up. Still, would stay here again!!!"
