About the Property

House, 4 large sunny bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite.

ROMANTIC SPANISH CHARM & STYLE, WALK TO BEACH, LARGE SUNNY BEDROOMS, POOL AND ENTERTAINMENT AREAS.

Beautiful architectural design and decor combine with a fabulous location for an ideal holiday with family and friends. There is nothing more romantic than strolling down to the beach to watch the sunset, and returning to enjoy drinks by the pool. The large rooms, garden, pool, and location near beach and village - make this the ideal holiday retreat.
Casasol is located near south Windansea Beach in an exclusive neighborhood. Unlike some La Jolla homes in the hills where there are no sidewalks and it is difficult to walk, the homes in this area are perfect for walking, jogging, or riding our bikes through the neighborhood to the beach or restaurants and coffee houses nearby.
Casasol is a designated historic property. Today it is restored and modernized, but filled with the same charm and character that the architect gave La Jolla's famous La Valencia Hotel: carved stone benches, leaded glass windows, hand-crafted tiles; high beamed ceilings; carved walnut paneled dining room, tile and wood floors throughout. (Click on the link below to see large scale images.)

Enjoy the romance and charm of the house, during dinners alongside the pool or in the large dining room with a table which seats up to 12. The modern kitchen with breakfast nook, is designed for cooking together. The house is equipped with everything you need to play, picnic, and enjoy the beaches, from folding chairs, coolers, to toys and bikes. The family room with flat screen has an adjacent cabana bath for changing for the pool. Exquisitely furnished, with the best linens, a gourmet eat-in kitchen with travertine floors, granite and Corian surfaces, Casasol will provide a holiday in style and comfort. A wood burning fireplace is equipped with a gas starter, and a pile of firewood is available. We provide two additional folding beds, and a Graco crib for additional sleeping arrangements.

We are minutes into the village and fine restaurants of La Jolla - and the bars and hot spots of Pacific Beach.
