About Vicki Padula

I've raised my kids here and been active in the La Jolla community for the past 30 years. We love this location because it's so convenient to everything the Shores has to offer. I'm a semi retired realtor and my husband is a retired general contractor. Our kids are grown and we spend our time keeping our rentals up to snuff, just the way we'd like to find them. I know you'll appreciate the little details we make sure are done. The basic spices for the cupboards, the paper products and the good games and reading material for balmy slow summer nights.

Why Vicki Padula chose La Jolla

This property has an ideal location 200 feet to the Beach. New paint and hardwood floors throughout, ocean view kitchen with side door. You can walk to the beach, park, restaurants and shops. Sunset Happy hours are offered at all the best restaurants and if you like 1/2 price drinks, dinners and ocean views step right up we can provide. If you prefer to stay in there is a charming Garden Patio with dining set and BBQ. Perfect for your quiet nights. The two car garage let's you park and forget about your car. Seaworld, LegoLand, SD. Zoo and Balboa park are a short ride away. You can either make this a lover's nest, or bring the kids. room for all. Sleeps 4.-6 You can bring your pet as this property is completely fenced. and gated.

What makes this condo unique

Leave the cars in the garage and walk across the street to the beach you can spend an hour and leave and return later with no parking issues. Restaurants and ocean front happy hours down the block make dining a breeze. Plenty of room to be lazy or get out there and learn to snorkel or kayak. The choice is yours. Close to all SD. attractions., but a slice of home.

Great Location, Comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This location worked perfectly for our family reunion. We were able to accommodate 10 people quite comfortably. The full kitchen helped us save money with food preparation. It was pretty well stocked with pots and pans. The hosts were easy to work with and attentive to details (like when the garage door quit working during our stay). It was a little warm inside when first trying to fall asleep, but each bedroom had a fan, and that was extremely helpful.

Great for our family of four.

  • 4 of 5

Love the proximity to the beach and quaint commercial area. House worked well for our family of four. It's a MUST to have a garage/designated parking because the area is so busy. Great to have access to beach toys and towels (would have loved a beach blanket, too).

Gave it four stars because the unit shares walls with another unit and there is a unit above it, and our neighbors were pretty noisy. Didn't bother us too much, but would have enjoyed a little more peace.

Fantastic Location with Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

After 18+ years of staying in Coronado we decided to try La Jolla. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. From the day we arrived and greeted by Vicki the owner to the day we left our experience was nothing but good. The condo is ideal with it's location directly across from the park which borders the beach. Our boys enjoyed playing in the park in direct view from the living room and deck. The condo was very clean and nicely furnished. Shops and eating options a few blocks away was also a big plus. Vicki was very accommodating and just wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay, which we did. We plan to return next summer.

Heads up when dealing with this owner

  • 3 of 5

We had a mis-communication and disagreement with the owner. I am not saying that we were right or that we were wrong; but I want to warn any future potential renters that the owner does not email or text. I am simply suggesting that anyone who is interested in renting from this owner SEND A FAX or send registered letters to make sure you clarify everything and that you dont have the problem that we had.

The owner has multiple properties and although only ONE property is shown on VRBO, she told us "verbally" about some of the other properties that she owns (and their prices), locations, etc. We ended up renting one of her other properties, and that's where the problems occurred.

Makes you wonder why she doesn't post the other properties on VRBO?

This is not a scam .... but when you rely on "verbal" discussions and "people's memories", there are bound to be problems.

hope this was helpful

Owner's Response: I was unaware of any disagreement. The tenants told us they had a lovely time and enjoyed their stay. Philly Boy was sent an entire email with Photos and address of the property he rented. It is a shame he didn't text me his confusion prior to his arrival. It appears he saw another one of my 3 listings after he departed and preferred it. I've been a HomeAway client for over 5 years without complaint. My reviews speak for themselves. I pride myself on giving folks a delightful place in the Shores and a week to remember. I don't post on VRBO I post my listings on HomeAway...

Amazing location, view, and free beach parking!

  • 5 of 5

They say location is everything, and this property has the best location! Literally one minute walking from side gate until toes are in the ocean. The space is larger than it appears in the pictures. It’s the first floor, right side unit. There is a separate rental upstairs, and you share the back courtyard with the other renters. There is a private patio outside the sliding glass door in the dining area, with a great view of Kellogg park and the Pacific beyond. The very best thing though (maybe even better than the view), is the two car garage you have all to yourself! Beach parking in La Jolla can be competitive, so it was fantastic to be able to leave at any time and still be able to park upon our return.

The rental property is owned and managed by Vicki, who did everything to make our stay memorable. She was responsive to our questions and returned calls timely. The property provides body-boards, beach chairs, and plenty of nice beach towels, which we used daily at La Jolla Shores…the kids loved riding the waves. Great closets and storage in both bedrooms, and both bathrooms were spacious. We never ran out of hot water, even during simultaneous showers. The laundry room is very convenient when coming home with wet towels and such.

The rental is central to many tourist activities in San Diego, but be forewarned about traffic. There are only a couple routes to get into La Jolla, so during 5 o’clock traffic, it can take a while. The grocery store is a few miles away, but there are a few local stores and restaurants less than 2 blocks away (pizza, coffee, frozen yogurt, a small market, Mexican, sushi, Italian).

Lastly, don’t forget the sunscreen, or the hoodie! The cool coastal air masks the fact that your skin is frying under the California sun, and the mornings and evenings are chilly – especially when walking on the beach or having a bonfire across the street at La Jolla Shores. Also, excellent tide pools are down past the pier. We went down in the morning during a negative tide and the kids found starfish, crabs, snails, fish, and sea anemones.

Thanks for opening up this property Vicki. Unbeatable value for the location and the boys will always remember our La Jolla vacation!
