Enjoy a wonderful vacation at our authentic Spanish home.

Your 4 bedroom 3 bath casa with parking is located just two houses (a 30 second walk to the west) from the sand at the world famous La Jolla Windansea Beach.

Savor the salty air and see incredible sunsets, including an occasional Green Flash when the horizon is a clear crisp line. Land's end here, where the Pacific kisses the California coast is hard to top.

Built in 1926 (and tastefully remodeled in 2012), your hacienda can also be configured as a 3 bedroom 2 bath residence for a reduced rate.

We have many beach toys for you, surf/body boards, beach chairs, a BBQ, old-fashioned floor heaters (the best!), air-conditioners, and a new laundry.

Relax in the private patio or spend the evening in the cozy living room with tall coved ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace.

We also provide an office/den for the business traveler. (Or enjoy a peaceful breakfast there.)

The centrally located dining room can be the focus for a family vacation or serve as a quiet dining experience for adult vacationers. It’s easy and fun to prepare a delicious meal using the modern appliances in your charming kitchen with a gas range.

Other key features include 2 off street parking spaces and, upon request, a garage. A two minute walk east in our quiet and safe neighborhood brings you to several charming eateries. 

We strive to provide upscale accommodations and service. Our family considers it an ultimate compliment when valued guests return. 

So come, be our guest in the beautiful Windansea community, play in the sand and waves, and then let the surf lull you to sleep.

Your comfort is our business. And we take it seriously!


Consider adding our delightful adjacent residence for a total of 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 kitchens, and 5 parking spaces, subject to availability. See for a description and reviews.

Great house and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

A really nice house in a really great location! Just feet away from a nice surfing beach area. There's plenty of space in the home and it's a very quick walk down the block to restaurants and a coffee shop. Wonderful location in a quieter area. Everyone in my family enjoyed staying here! I highly recommend this home for a stay.

Quintessential beach cottage close to the water

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is a super short walk to Wind & Sea Beach. The place is stocked with everything you need including all beach toys and a wagon to pull it all to the beach. We had a great stay and plenty of room for five of us.

Absolutely beachy!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation property. It was fully equipped with everything we needed for a family of six. We enjoyed the beach every day, the sunsets at night. There was amble amount of everything you could think of. I loved the Spanish style house and the interior was cozy. We really loved that there were parking spaces in the back of the property. We had a wonderful time and the weather was perfect!! Paula and her father responded immediately to a couple of minor issues we had. They are so friendly and nice. We will be back again!!!
