About Property Manager
Our Family has been managing rentals for generations. We especially enjoy providing pet-friendly rentals to others who can't bear to leave their fur-kids at home.
Why Property Manager chose La Jolla
The location is superb. Windansea beach and Starkey dog-friendly park are just 1.5 blocks away. It's just a few minute walk to Chinese, Mexican, and other fun restaurants. There's also bakery nearby with wonderful coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. There's even a hotel (with a pool and spa area) across the street so if we can't get you in the exact dates you need, you could consider a few nights in the hotel and an easy transition to/from your villa across the street.

Great Location, Comfy Cottage
What a sweet, comfy cottage only a couple of blocks from the beach. Ever since we started traveling with our dog, our options have been limited in terms of places to stay. So glad we found this one. Nikki was very responsive, energetic, and caring about our needs. Highly recommend this place. Hope to return ourselves.
Thank you so much for the kind words. It was my absolute pleasure to host your family. If you ever need a reference for your family or Maji, don't hesitate to reach out.
Perfect La Jolla Stay
Location was ideal - just off beach and walking to much of L Jolla, while quiet. The unit had everything we needed and was very nicely appointed and organized. The small backyard patio space (with beach gear and grill) and laundry (no issue sharing with other unit) were useful. Parking was never an issue while we were there. We were pleased as we came in, and had a great one week stay with our small dog in tow.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It was so nice to meet you!
Great place and location
We stayed here with our two young children. Place was clean, laundry was a plus, and it had all the necessary supplies so we could make meals and relax during our time in California. Good location in La Jolla to talk to things, and parking was always easy right out front!
Thanks so much for the kind review. I enjoyed meeting your family, especially the little ones!
Well-appointed, compact apartment in an unbeatable location!
This unit is small, but efficient. There are some quirks—the laundry is outside, there is only a space heater to keep you warm at night, and the second bedroom's bed is actually just a couch you can pull apart into a couple of different configurations—but the incredible location and other amenities more or less make up for them. Highly recommended for 1-2 adults looking for convenient access to the beach!
I am glad you enjoyed Villa Serena. I'm so sorry the gas heater died. It wasn't great at heating the bedrooms, so we found our renters were preferring space heaters at night anyway. They do require a little more thought so we are planning to upgrade the heat to something more central ASAP. Tell the kids thanks for the drawing and thank you for the train set. A recent family of 6 got a lot of use out of it! Don't forget to stay in touch. We would love to see you again and offer the 15-30% Repeat Guest Discount (which is extended to your friends and family as well). Stay Well ~ Nikki
Relaxing Get Away
We had a great time in La Jolla and Villa Serena was a wonderful cottage. Our family had everything we needed and loved the little back patio. We spent most of our time out there listening to music and just reconnecting. I highly recommend La Jolla and Villa Serena!
Thanks for the great review. I am glad you enjoyed Villa Serena and took advantage of our beautiful weather and outdoor space. Don't forget to stay in touch! We would love to see your smiling faces again and offer the 15-30% Repeat Guest Discount.
