Wonderful Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to La Jolla for a wedding. Ciara's cottage was perfect and super comfortable. Very conveniently located and we loved that it was just a short walk to the beach. Ciara was very helpful in providing recommendations of places for breakfast and told us about a surfing competition going on the day of our arrival at the beach down the street. So glad to have the air conditioning in the unit and a guaranteed place to park our rental car. The cottage had everything we needed and more. It was a quick trip, but if we ever return to La Jolla we would definitely check to see if the cottage is available. I highly recommend it for a couple or single traveler.

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Ciara's place! It was very clean and comfortable and so close to the beach! Even though we didn't meet Ciara in person, she was very kind and accommodating- very good at communicating with us. We would highly recommend this beach retreat and would love to stay here again.

Wonderful little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really loved this little cottage! From the decor to the amenities to the location, this place has it all. Ciara is an attentive host and her attention to detail really made this place start to feel like home. The location is fantastic and it is just a few minutes walk from the famous Windansea beach where we would watch the sunset. Having access to the beach chairs was a nice bonus and the private patio was a great outdoor space to relax. My wife felt like it was her own secret garden. The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning was wonderful to have given the heat wave that was ongoing, and the bedroom skylights with retractable covers were a really cool feature. Overall, we thought this place was fantastic and it puts you within easy reach of much of La Jolla. We were sad when it came time to leave. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Ciara!

Clean, Cozy and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for me and my husband; two blocks from the beach, 1 mile from downtown, within walking distance to cafes and eateries, a large and comfy bed, GREAT A/C, incredibly clean, and a surprisingly awesome shower! Great for single or 2-person occupancies, is cozy but doesn't feel too crowded. A cute little outdoor sitting area too! If we come back to La Jolla in the near future, we'll definitely consider staying here again.

Perfect location and beautiful, clean place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location...only a block from a beautiful beach. La Jolla is great, a nice quaint town. The place was clean and spacious for our family of 4 with a cute little patio. The space was nicely decorated, great kitchen well stocked. Very handy having the parking spot and in suite laundry. Short drive or walk to many different beaches and attractions. We would definately come back!
