It was what we hoped for but didn’t really expect
The place was everything we could have hoped for. The saying, “location, location, location” was so true! Half a block to the beach in a neighbourhood where we felt very safe provided a great way to relax. The fact the SD downtown is not where the majority of commuters go to work meant that getting to Seaworld, airport, Midway, Mission Beach or Balboa was a short commute. Yes we rented a car and we were somewhat worried about parking but at the end of the week, I don’t think we ever parked more than 60’ from the house! Other than no dishwasher (silly complaint - I know), the house was worth every dollar we paid. Having the owners nearby was also refreshing. They have lived in the neighbourhood forever and had great stories - ask Marsha about Louie Armstrong!
We are defintitely interested in returning and would encourage people to stay here.
Ps - the grapefruit in the front yard was fabulous! Who knew fruit off the vine tasted so good!
We loved meeting such a delighful family and so glad you enjoyed your visit. I am laughing about the lack of a dishwasher. One father told his teenagers that yes, there was a dishwasher and it was them! I think it is a lost art.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We get such pleasure with families enjoying together time and there are so many things to do in this area. I love that you were able to go on a hike in the beautiful Torrey Pines area, enjoy the beach,do some bike riding and of course the Zoo, Sea World . the Midway and everything else.
I do look forward to your return and we can share more stories. Our best to you and one more thank you. Marsha
Convenient and sufficient
The place was what was expected. Nice location and sufficient for our needs. Parking can be a problem. Property was clean.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Marsha
Cozy cottage with a beautiful garden half a block from the ocean
The cottage is beautiful with the convenience of two bathrooms, large bedrooms, two porches for sitting plus a back garden and hot tub . Lots of extras in cottage - beach towels, several flat screen TVs, well equipped kitchen, modern laundry machines. Perfect for a family-great place to to relax in between activities. Beautiful beach at the end of the block. Location is very convenient fir the beach, highway, seaworld and other neighbourhoods or points north (Torrey pines hikes, Carlsbad). Would love to come back.

Thank you Beverley and Family for taking the time to write this lovely review. I am so pleased you had a nice visit and hope you enjoyed your hike at Torrey Pines as it is an especially beautiful area. Connor was a brave young man to go surfing - good for him. Rebecca left a darling note glad she enjoyed Windansea Beach - another beautiful spot. Hope to see you again. Marsha
The owners were wonderful and there were lots of positives about the cottage, neat history which the owners shared, close to the ocean and downtown, great restaurants within walking distance , and the cottage was very well equipped. A major irritant was a lack of parking. The guest wifi was week and ants could become a problem, we experienced many in the house. Ant traps were present but so were the ants, annoying at times but not a major irritant. Overall we had a great stay and we will definitely return.
I am sorry you didn't let us know there was a problem with ants and weak wifi. I would have immediately contacted the company to see what was going on. We would have taken care of the ant situation also. As to the parking, this is a beach community and parking can vary.
I enjoyed meeting you and thank you for leaving the house so nice. Marsha
Amazing house, amazing location.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Windansea House. Marsha thought of everything you could possibly need. Everyday we took the very short, beautiful walk to the beach and enjoyed the view. The house is very centrally located and provided an easy route to everywhere we went. If you are there on a Sunday morning, you must go to the La Jolla Open Aire Farmers Market. While there is only street parking, it was never a problem. If we ever go back to the San Diego area, we will definitely stay here.
Thanks again, Marsha, for the hospitality!
Stephanie and Janice
Stephanie. I want to thank you for the wonderful review and for taking the time to write it. I am so glad you had a nice visit and hope you return. You are right about the Farmer's Market. We love the fresh fruits and vegetables, great food, clothing, jewelry and on and on. We feel so lucky to live by this beautiful beach.
Thank you again. Marsha
Cute cottage close to Windansea beach!
My family and I had a wonderful time at Marsha's cottage. It was super clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we could possibly need! The location was absolutely perfect, close enough to walk to town yet peaceful and quiet. To top it off it's only 1/2 a block to beautiful Windansea Beach. We enjoyed sitting on the side deck in the morning watching the humming birds and the hot tub was a terrific way to end a busy day. The back yard was really cute and roomy with plenty of chairs and a great gas grill. It's also just a short drive to all of San Diego's attractions. Thanks a lot Marsha, we'll definitely be back!
Rick and I are smiling from ear to ear after reading your terrific review. We are so pleased your visit went so well and are sorry that we were not here. Yes, the Windansea beach is beautiful and we love living in this area and being able to have others enjoy the cottage. We have a great housekeeper and she takes pride in her work. I will tell her about your comment.
I do hope you return and we can share a moment or two. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review.
Windansea is famous for it's beauty and surfing. Our cottage is in a very convenient location for just about everything.
