Recent La Jolla reviews

  • Vegas family of 5

    "This house met all our needs. There are no frills to the house and is very "beachy", but the location to the beach and village are perfect! Loved to sit out in the backyard for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. The bikes and wagon were a nice added bonus. This house has privacy, but be aware that it is connected to another unit. (side by side). For the price, you can't beat it!"

  • Great location for La Jolla

    "The cottage was great for our needs in La Jolla. Great location to the beach and walking to restaurants, tennis and such. The only drawback was lack of AC, but with windows open, we were fine. The house was well stocked and we were very comfortable during our week there. We will be back for sure!"

  • Nice Vacation in La Jolla

    "I would like to review this house and I am going to give it 5 stars because some people might think it is 5 stars and I certainly don't want to be the only person who doesn't give it 5, however, I probably would give it 4. Our family of six stayed here for one week in July. We have three teen daughters (18, 16 and 14) and a 2.5 yo son. The cottage is lovely. It was MUCH larger than I thought it would be. There was plenty of room for the six of us to sleep in the two bedrooms. I didn't ask my teen daughters, but the main queen bed was SUPER comfortable. This home was also extremely clean and we really appreciated that. The gardens are wonderfully kept and great to spend time outside on the back patio. They had everything we needed including fully stocked kitchen, bath and shower towels and everything you need to take to the beach. The owners are super lovely people and were easy to work with. Here are the things that I would have liked to know before I got there. The cottage was on a very busy and popular street so on the weekend, people walked by talking late into the night and early morning. As you need the windows open in the summer, that was hard to sleep. You can hear everything at your neighbors homes... like them blending their drinks and opening their frig (as I am sure they could hear us). There is no designated parking and having a large family and a minivan, we often had to walk kind of far back to the cottage... but we did always find parking on the actual street. The home is smoke free, but the owners smoke had a tendency to drift through the house with all the windows open. They live behind the home, directly above the hot tub is their deck...good to know if you think you are getting a private hot tub... we have teens so that was not a problem for us at all. I was also caught outside having morning coffee in my PJs when one of them walked by which was a little awkward since I didn't know they would be walking through the cottage yard. We would stay here again as our vacation was great. My two year old called it "my beach house" and my teen daughters loved the fact that their room was behind two separate doors (bedroom door and hallway had a door) so that they could sleep in without being disturbed by their little brother, the beach access, hot tub and overall vacation."
