Guestbook comments from the owner

The rental was conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and fabulous art galleries. It is also close to Torrey Pines where my husband and son played golf. The condo was very neat, clean and fully equipped with whatever we needed. Terrie was delightful and addressed an air conditioning problem immediately. I would definitely recommend this condo to my friends. It was nice having a place to park our car.

The apartment is so comfortable, the kitchen is so easy to work in, it is a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of a better place to be. Restaurants/ coffee shop are nearby, the ocean is a couple of blocks away, a perfect "nest" to stay in, with decks on front and back, a garage, total ease and comfort, and fantastic VRBO hosts!! It was pleasant and awesome in every way!

Great location, property and ameneties

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The location is blocks away from the beach and the adjoining play set which our kids loved. The apartment is very well appointed and the owner has taken care of every small detail. We loved having beach toys, towels and a wagon to carry all that stuff. There are also some toys for little ones, books, music (surround sound) and movies to keep the kids entertained. The kitchen has everything one might need. Lots of close options to eat out as well and they were all very good. Also La Jolla just is such a good area with so many things one can do without driving very far. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you SO much for taking time to do a review, especially just getting home with kids after the busy holidays. Sorry I didn't get to meet you in person, but your family photo was adorable. I'm always happy when people enjoy the place and glad it worked well for all of you. We will be glad to have you come back anytime!

It was everything it said it would be and more. The place was beautiful, organized and close to all.

  • 5 of 5

Anything we needed for the beach was there and ready to go. The beds were so comfortable and the decor was wonderful. I only wish our time in LaJolla afforded me more time in this place and the LaJolla Shores area. It was all right outside the door! Was able to grab a coffee and walk the beach early each morning. I will definitely be back! Wonderful ideas of things to do in area was available. Thank you for making this such a relaxing and stress free visit.

Perfect La Jolla stay

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of four, children aged 5 and 9) stayed here for a week in August 2017. It was perfect: large, comfortable, well-equipped, with extremely efficient air conditioning, good wi-fi, a garage into which we could easily fit our enormous rented Pathfinder and containing all the beach equipment you could ever need, comfortable beds and an ideal location about 2 minutes' walk from La Jolla Shores beach and a very short drive to La Jolla with its selection of excellent restaurants (we particularly liked The Cottage), and with downtown San Diego, Seaworld and the very nice Mission Beach all within an easy 20-minute drive and well worth a visit. Very friendly welcome from the owner. I wish we could have stayed longer.

This is our third summer renting the condo. We love the location, which is walking distance to the beach, restaurants, ice cream, the local grocery store, etc. We enjoy local activities like kayaking, snorkeling, yoga, and swimming in the cave. While there, we also take Day Trips to the zoo, Balboa Park, Scripps Aquarium, Sea World, Gaslamp District... The condo is clean and well stocked. Terrie is always friendly and accommodating. We have two active boys, ages 7 and 9, and a one year old daughter. This year, Terrie had the condo all baby-proofed before we arrived - awesome! We cannot wait to return next year!!

There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, from fine dining to places where you can pop in wearing your swim suit and sandals. Please visit our web site.
