About John Murphy

My wife I and are from the East Coast but fell in love with La Jolla and moved here in 1984 with all the kids in tow. We love the Village, the restaurants, beaches and the fabulous weather. Average low is 58 degrees and average high is 72 degrees! It is always cool at night and requires blankets!

John Murphy purchased this house in 1984

Very charming. Close to the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A very nice respite from the Phoenix heat! Very nice home with all you need to enjoy your stay. The master suite was most enjoyable with stunning views of the ocean!

Super cute and clean cottage in an awsome location and super awesome landlords!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here! We have been renting from John and Katie for 5yrs now. They are so nice and accommodating. The house Ian adorable and has wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets. It is family friendly, complete with toys, a loft bed, boogie boards, etc. Walking distance to many lovely restaurants, and a block from the beach. It is perfect!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (6 adults and one baby) had a really wonderful time in La Jolla. The house was very clean, had spacious common rooms, and was super charming. There were plenty of bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, kitchen items, amongst other things you would look for while on vacation. It was super convenient to have a washer and dryer as well! The balconies had great views and the balcony from the master bedroom was just gorgeous. The master bedroom is all around beautiful and the 2 rooms on the main floor are very cute. One downside in the downstairs rooms is that space is limited so if you are a couple, you can't really unpack your suitcases (there is a small armoire in one of the rooms). But we got over that quickly as the house is so pretty and in such a great great location! You can quickly walk to the beach and into town for coffee, breakfast, restaurants or a little shopping. We would definitely stay in this house again. The owner, John, was very kind, responsive, and accommodating and treated us as very welcomed guests! We stayed 6 days and were all very sad to leave.

You won't be disappointed .....

  • 5 of 5

This home is very, very comfortable and easy to be in with a large kitchen area, great room with adjacent dining and of course, the views and the ocean breeze. The master bedroom suite on the second floor opens to its own deck with, again, even better views. We never closed those doors during the entire time we were there. The home was very clean and well kept. The location is perfect as well. One block to the beach and 6-8 blocks to the center of the Village itself. John is awesome to work with and very accommodating. We highly recommend this home.

Awesome location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property in a wonderful location. Our family of five enjoyed a week stay just before the July 4th holiday. The owner, John, lives in the guest house in the back and is easily accessible to help with anything you need. We enjoyed everything about the home but especially the upstairs patio off of the master bedroom, the loft bed in the back bedroom, the beach chairs and equipment, and the cool ocean breezes that flow through the many open windows.

The booking process with John was very easy and he was very responsive in answering all of my questions. The home was ready to go when we arrived and he was there to give us keys, walk through the home, and provide lots of great restaurant suggestions. My wife and I were very appreciative of the welcome gift and enjoyed it on the upstairs porch watching the sun set over the ocean while listening to the waves crash on the beach.

The house is only two blocks from Marine street beach which appears to get mostly locals. There are beatiful rock settings at the ends of the small beach for excellent photo opportunities. You are also within a short walk to lots of unique and good restaurants (The Cottage is a must try for breakfast). It's a three minute drive to the grocery store and a 15 minute drive to La Jolla Shores for a big public beach, kayak rides, surfing lessons, an aquarium and more restaurants. It only took us 30 minutes to get to downtown San Diego and the the typical attractions like the zoo and the USS Midway. Interestingly, the traffic and activity in the area is heaviest mid-day and calm at the beginning and end of the day. I had assumed it would be the opposite.

I have stayed at a number of vacation rentals and this one has, by far, been the best (in value, quality, experience). I highly recommend this property and, if I'm ever back to SD for vacation, will stay here again. Thanks, John, for a wonderful experience.
