"So glad we stayed here! Its near UC and Scribbs, and less hectic than the shopping and museum district. We were two couples on holiday, and this very private 3 bedroom suite, mediterranean-ranch compound was calming and beautiful. Centrally located, yet easy to get anywhere, we just went a few blocks down the hill to the beach for a lovely dinner. Its a 20 minute walk and a great workout on foot. The gated compound is perched on a level green hillside with no steps, and no immediate neighbors. The view is an unobstructed 180 degree panorama of La Jolla Cove, from an elevation of 200+ feet. There’s a wall of glass in the oversized and open living and dining rooms, and the view is basically filled with blue ocean and puffy clouds. Evening light glowed from the village and the stars, and looked just perfect from the comfy 9’ couch. There’s four separate areas of outdoor space to relax in, a lovely tiled heated pool in a central piazza for gatherings; the grassy knolls were perfect for wine or lounging, and good for seniors, kids, or pets. The master suite was oversized with direct pool access; the hall and entry was gracious with a silk cover settee and lovely marble topped bureau. It has antique and international decor throughout, in a quiet palate. The kitchen/small family room combo opens onto a nice fenced greenbelt. There’s art, linens, dining sets and cookware, a fireplace, and a washer/dryer. Just did not want to leave…it was relaxingly beautiful."
