About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

For your vacation consideration. A poet’s cottage located amidst natural gardens and across the street from La Jolla Shores beach and Scripps Institute of Oceanography. 2 bedrooms and a sunroom, which can be used as a bedroom, are upstairs. A cozy “tree house” balcony leads off the sunroom. The Pacific Ocean, framed by towering palms, can be seen from the master bedroom. Downstairs is a great room including kitchen, dining room and living area, a most inviting space to revitalize your spirit. An upright grand piano is ready for your playing enjoyment. All doors open out to patios and gardens. Listen to the sound of the waterfall in the East garden as you enjoy your breakfast or relax in garden. Baby sitting and housecleaning are available. This is one of two homes that sit on 1/2 acre of land.

La Jolla Shores is a beach and popular vacation/residential community of the same name in La Jolla, San Diego, California. The quaint La Jolla Shores business district is a relaxed, mixed-use village encircling Laureate Park, on Avenida de la Playa in the village of La Jolla Shores. The village has several fine dining restaurants as well as plenty of casual dining places, shops, and a few galleries. You can take surf lessons and rent surfboards, boogie boards, paddle boards, and wetsuits from Surf Diva. Kayak, snorkel, and bike tours and rentals are available at San Diego Bike and Kayak.

The beach is approximately one mile long and stretches from the sea cliffs just north of La Jolla Cove to Black’s Beach south of Torrey Pines State Park. The Shores meets the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus and Kellogg Park (with a playground right next to the beach), encompasses the Scripps Pier and borders the San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve to the south. The beach is a popular launch point for kayakers and has a swimming area only and a surfing only area.

Sea World, Downtown Gaslamp District, PetCo Park, San Diego Zoo, Qualcomm Stadium, Mission Bay, San Diego Bay, and the Airport are all within a 10-15 minute drive.

Everything it is described to be and more...

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly exceptional property. Very roomy, very clean, convenient to all of the area attractions and beaches and just simply pleasant. We highly recommend this beautiful cottage for anyone seeking to visit La Jolla and the San Diego area attractions. Sea World, the San Diego Zoo and Petco Park (downtown) were each only a 20 minute drive from the cottage. We also spent a day in Disneyland which was an easy 90 minute drive north. The A/C, although not needed often, was a pleasure to have in the early evenings to cool the house down, not needed at night at all! We cannot say enough positive things about this property. Perfect for a family of 4 - 6 or even just a couple. Check it out. We will stay here again the next time we visit La Jolla and the San Diego area. Thanks Getta & Joyce!

Our second stay at this Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the words Beach Cottage discourage you! This rental, though only 2 main bedrooms, has plenty of room. There is a third day bed in the sunroom upstairs. Ceilings are high and rooms are big. Three full bathrooms. Two with showers and one does have a tub for the little ones. Also a crib and youth seat.

Joyce (the owner) & Marketta (her assistant) will answer any questions. Since our flight got in very late, I was able to ask for some groceries to be waiting. If you need anything (like extra toilet paper) they will provide.

The beach is just across the road. Don't forget to visit Carolines (a café serving breakfast & lunch) very good but can get busy on occasion. Town is just a few blocks away. Several restaurants there. But to be honest, we spent two weeks here and cooked all our meals except one. Kellogg Beach with playground is a short distance walk.

Property is quiet. I definitely recommend!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We hate to give away our lodging secrets for fear we won't be able to book our next vacation - and this is one of those secrets. This is a wonderful large home on a private secluded verdant large lot, just a short stroll to the beach and the wonderful Caroline's cafe. The fact that this home is attached to the owner's residence is only a plus as they are there for anything you might need. Enjoy your stay - but please don't spread the word!

We can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third house we've rented in La Jolla and we are definitely going to rent it again next year. The house is super clean and well laid out. There was a water filter so we didn't have to buy water, which is pretty terrific in San Diego. It is steps to one of the best beaches in California and we were comfortable letting our young teenagers walk to and from the beach as they pleased.

A delightful cottage1

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house is both rustic and modern, secluded yet walking distance to the beach.

We sat in the garden, on rocking chairs, and heard the miniature waterfall in the background. coming back from the beach we shed our clothes and threw them into the outdoor washer and dryer (very modern). The kitchen was well provided with modern appliances and sets of Corelle dishes. We lacked for nothing! We were 5 people and never felt crowded - a spacious feel to the living spaces and good bedrooms and baths. Our week flew by with visits to the nearby Aquarium, downtown La Jolla, and of course the beach.

Five stars!

Beautiful Home situated in Picturesque Location

  • 5 of 5

We are a young family with two little boys ages 4 and 6, and we absolutely loved this La Jolla Shores Beach Cottage. Situated across the street from a beautiful beach, the cottage was in the perfect location and felt much larger than a standard cottage. The home itself was very clean with all the amenities needed for a short or long stay. We would recommend this cottage and location to anyone visiting La Jolla as you have privacy, but are near enough to restaurants (including the breathtaking Caroline's across the street), La Jolla Village and the La Jolla downtown area as well. We also were able to visit LEGOLAND (only a 20 Minute drive), downtown San Diego (15-20 Minute Drive) and we even went to Disneyland (1.5 Hours) which made it the perfect spot for a family to visit one of the most picturesque beach locations in the US. Everyone we met was very friendly, and helpful, we had a GREAT TIME!
