Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at this wonderful home. As noted in previous posts: great views, great location and very clean and comfortable home. John, the owner, is a terrific person- very helpful and accommodating. For our needs the home is in a perfect location- Birdrock is charming, with several restaurants in walking distance as well as The Rush spinning studio, Yoga Yard and All About Animals pet grooming within a few blocks walk. Outstanding home away from home vacation.

Honeymoon Sandwich

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I planned our La Jolla wedding to include an entire week prior with my three sons aged 21,22,23 and a couple close friends. We were looking for a place that was close to young adult beach action, great deck views of the sunset, and a kitchen for preparing gourmet meals at home every night. Wow, did we hit the jackpot!!! Upper and lower west facing decks provided the opportunity to watch surfers all day long and sunsets every night. The well equipped kitchen and layout was perfect for preparing large meals while guests gathered in the adjacent living room to cheer us on. We served up to 12 guests each evening in the dinning room which is beautifully appointed with fun prints on the wall with matching placemats that encouraged long lingering conversations over bottles of wine. The first floor bedrooms were really quiet which allowed late sleepers to remain undisturbed by early risers. Outdoor shower was awesome and popular with everyone coming back in from the beach. Close access to local surf shop was great for renting bikes to get down to Pacific Beach to see and be seen. The owner of the property was prompt, friendly and efficient in communicating with us and provided excellent instructions for enjoying our home for the week.This property was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon sandwich with our family before our wedding.

Even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBOs, and this is by far the best-equipped, particularly in the kitchen where there are LOTS of dishes and glasses -- that even match! If you want to cook, you will find almost every piece of equipment available. We used all the beds and they were all comfortable. The deck facing the Pacific was, of course, our favorite spot for whale-watching, surfer-watching, dog-watching and sunset-watching. While we didn't get to meet owner John, he was very accommodating and quickly returned our deposit. This house is a wonderful value, and we were pleasantly surprised when we opened the front door -- better than the photos on the web site. Thanks, John!

Bliss at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation in Bird Rock, La Jolla for the second year in a row. The home is spacious,clean and oh, so comfortable. Everything needed for a perfect vacation was provided.

Just up the street and around the corner is Ja Jolla Blvd. where you can find great eats and drinks and if you're craving a candy bar CVS Pharmacy is on the corner of La Jolla and Midway.

The weather was great for beach strolling . The upstairs deck provided the most spectacular sunset one evening. Of course, we'll return.

Views were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We lived on the deck... couldn't get enough of the expansive ocean views! Perfect house for relaxing at the beach. Bird Rock shops within walking distance, a great neighborhood located just between La Jolla and Pacific Beach.
