Manager info

Why La Jolla Shores, San Diego, CA, USA:
Dove Cottage was designed by renowned Architect, Dale Naegle, who's works are a large part of Southern California's History, especially in La Jolla Shores. It was built as a testament of Love from the Patriarch of the family, so that the gererations after could enjoy the beauty of the Shores.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Yard with heated lap pool and third story wrap around ocean view deck. One building removed from busy street and kitty corner from a beachfront hotel and around the corner from restaurants, rentals and activities. Truly a spectacular location. Great for a getaway or family vacation. A gem in La Jolla Shores!
