FANTASTIC PROPERTY FOR AN AMAZING PRICE!!!
"Let me start by saying that I will definitely be staying here again and I found my San Diego area place to stay when in town. The unit is big and in great condition, the appliances are nicer than what I have at home, there is a nice big TV in the living room with cable and DVR, and, last but certainly not least, you can see the sunset on the ocean from the balcony (the profile pic is the balcony view and during our stay that piece of the ocean was where the sun set :) ).
If you are not happy enough watching the sunset from the balcony, the unit is one very small block back from the ocean and takes a minute to walk to. When you walk to the beach, you go down a few stairs and you are on a beautiful sandy beach with two point breaks on either side. The beach is long enough not to be crowded at all and one of the points is the legendary Windansea surf break, so there is no lack of talented surfers to watch as you enjoy the sun and sand.
Back at the condo, there is a large private back patio with a nice gas grill. The second night we were there we grilled up some steaks and made chili on the state of the art smooth electric range. Then the wife and I sat down to the dinning room table and enjoyed our dinner with a delicious bottle of wine that the owner so graciously gave to us! After dinner, we played monopoly (provided) and watched a couple of movies that we had DVRed on the comfy pull out couch in the living room... it was one of the best wedding anniversaries that we've had, thanks to this superb listing!
Parking was perfect, right in the driveway of the condo, and the condo is located close to the shops and restaurants in La Jolla. However, I recommend ordering some pizza and garlic knots from Pizza on Pearl, which delivers to the condo.
The WiFi was great, a washer and dryer were available to wash clothes, and there were even boogie boards and bikes available to use. It seems that the owner has really thought about everything we could have needed as each time the wife and I thought about something, sure enough, the condo had it.
As for the noise issue that the one 4 star rating discussed, we never at anytime noticed any noise from the unit above and we know that people were there as we saw them walk into the unit. I'd be surprised if noise is ever an issue at this sleepy condo.
Overall, an extremely beautiful and comfortable place to spend some quiet time in heaven!!!"

"Wow!!! My husband and I rented this Windansea condo for six weeks and could not have found a better place to stay. Our son lives in San Diego so we decided to spend the Holiday Season in La Jolla to be with him and also invited the rest of our family to join us. This was the perfect home away from home! We have very high standards when it comes to comfort and cleanliness and Karl's place exceeded all of our expectations and then some! It's beautifully decorated, very comfortable and stocked with everything you may need while on vacation. If you need beach chairs, boogie boards or bikes, it's all there for you to enjoy!
The ocean view and sunsets are breathtaking and you are only a few steps away from the beach. The condo's location is only a short drive from downtown or Pacific Beach where you can get all your shopping done or enjoy dining out. If you have any questions, Michael is the person to contact. He takes wonderful care of the condo during Karl's absence and will go above and beyond to help you. During our stay, we were fortunate enough to spend time with both, Karl and Michael and we can't say enough about their kindness and thoughtfulness! Not only did we have a wonderful time but we also built new friendships and special memories!
Thank you both, can't wait to go back! I miss falling asleep to the sound from the waves of Windansea beach!"

"Parking was a issue a few nights but w patients we could find a place and not have to walk to far. Good location with close by beaches and shopping the Kitchen is good and stocked with all cooking needs. The towels are big and soft also includes Beach towels two bikes and some boogie boards for catching waves. Not for a loud group tho as its a very quiet location out side neighborhood dogs which where not bad. Extremely clean and an easy to use lay out! Comfortable bed and couch!"
