La Playa Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The beach cottage is roomy and homey. The 1 bedroom (w/queen-size bed) is separate from the living area to give you privacy if you come with your children. The living room area sleeps 2. The direct access to the beach makes it the perfect place to enjoy being in the sun and then coming in for a nap if you like. You'll never have to leave once you fill up the fridge for your stay.

Within a mile you will find several wonderful restaurants or have pizza delivered if you like. This is the perfect romantic getaway, but children are welcome with their parents of course.

The neighborhood is very quiet, so no late night parties allowed. Swimming, kayaking and other water activities are just out your backdoor. Come and enjoy!

About Karen Harrop

My husband and I work hard all day and love to come home to the tranquility of the Bay. We have two small cockapoos who enjoy welcoming new guests to our home.

Karen Harrop purchased this bungalow in 1972

Why Karen Harrop chose San Diego

This Point Loma home has been my husband's home since childhood. The cottage unit has been refurbished to make it comfortable for guests. We hope you will come to love the Bay as much as we do.

What makes this bungalow unique

If you are a yacht club member, you are within walking distance of at least 3 local yacht clubs to enjoy their reciprocal amenities.

Beach Front Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were everything we could have hoped for. Clean and spacious for 2 people and all the amenities needed for your stay. Walk to town, the 2 patios (one for a little privacy and the other ending on the beach). We had a surprise visit on a Friday afternoon from Drew Brees and 5 of the New Orleans Saints that did an hour workout literally 15 feet from us while having our morning coffee. Karen and John are gracious host who live next door but give you your privacy unless you want to engage them (which you should) because they can tell you everything you need to know about the area and some history also. We were on vacation visiting friends and hope to stay again if our plans take us back there.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We found our home away from home. Everything you need and more. Paddleboards, kayaks, sand toys, fully furnished home on the beach. And onsite owners who are there for any need or question, yet very private. Truly a private piece of paradise. 💖 The only negative comment I have is that we had to leave. Cannot wait to return.

Vintage Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home right on the beach and close to San Diego's major sights! Everything you need to have a wonderful time at the beach is right there. The ocean, sun, sand, kayak and bar-b-que were favorites. Owners are right next door to assist in every way, every day!

We had a wonderful time!

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property exceeded our expectations! The beach is literally right out your back door. We especially enjoyed the 2 different decks for hanging out, barbecuing, and enjoying the fire pit at night. The kayak was also a nice bonus surprise. There was more than enough room inside for our family of three and we felt comfortable and right at home. This house is close to all of the major San Diego attractions and the owners are very helpful and friendly. We hope to vacation here again!

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Cozy house with everything you need. The owners were very helpful with giving ideas of what to see or answering any other question one might have. We loved sitting on the patio with a good book when we were not out sight-seeing. Watching boats of all sizes pass by as they were leaving the harbor was always entertaining.

The Navy trains both dolphins and seals in the water and on the beach directly in front of the bungalow during weekdays. It is very entertaining and for no additional fee! In addition, you will see cruise ships coming in and out of the bay and military carriers. The constant Bay activity is a delight. You can see Mexico from the property as well and the first point of entry for the United States is right across the water in front of you. Large yachts dock at the Kona Kai Club across from us and you may see helicopters coming to and from the yacht to deliver passengers from the airport which is just a 5 to 10 minute cab ride from the bungalow.
