Why Cheryl chose San Diego County

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Indeed, the pictures do not do this home justice! The beautiful & enclosed yard was just perfect for my grands to roam/explore and the pool was a wonderful addition to the end of a day at the beach.

The house has plenty of cozy seating in the family room for 7 adults and 2 toddlers. The kitchen table extended to fit us all, but when the weather was warm enough, we opened the french doors off the lovely, open kitchen and ate outside as well. Both of the bedrooms are quite spacious and comfortable- for a house that isn't huge, we all fit easily. Extras include a Pack&Play, High Chair, safety gates, beach towels, a HAMMOCK, washer & dryer, and a large, dark walk-in closet for the baby to sleep in! Two minute walk to a nice beach with a large grassy park/playground in-between. I can't think of when we have had a more relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable week. Thanks!!

Great stay in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Dove cottage for several weeks in January - March 2016 and really enjoyed our stay .

We loved the location, steps from the beach and from nice restaurants and coffee shops. The beds are very comfy, the kitchen is very well equipped, there is everything you need and more in the house.

As we were staying during the colder season of the year ( if you can say that about San Diego climate ) it was great to swim in the heated pool, steam shower was great too! Loved by adults and kids.

Cheryl was very helpful prior to our arrival , during our stay and after we left. Homemade cookies and lemonade upon arrival were a great personal touch, too.

There are so many things to enjoy in La Jolla, would love to come back and stay again in Dove Cottage!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We rented Dove Cottage for a 3 generation family vacation. The location is ideal just a short walk to the park and beach and has all the toys, equipment needed to make beach visits wonderful. The house is beautiful, well maintained and has all the amenities one could ask for including safety gates and pack n plays for our two grand babies. Sleeping arrangements on 3 different levels was perfect for each family to have "alone time" and the big kitchen made cooking together as a family really enjoyable. We enjoyed the outside yard with outdoor dining, grilling, relaxing in the hammock and the heated pool. Cheryl, the manager is wonderful to work with and very helpful - would definitely stay here again.

Great Value and Location. Light, bright and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage in La Jolla. The photos don't do it justice. It's a lovely home, equipped with everything! It's light and bright and inviting. The garden/outside areas and lap pool were amazing. Huge Master Bedroom and bathroom. Very comfortable seating for relaxing and watching videos. Fabulous location and the onsite manager took very good care of us! Great value and location!

two families

  • 5 of 5

This was a well -maintained, clean and inviting property. We had a group of eight and there was ample space to accommodate all of us. The views from the top floor were spectacular, and the property felt quiet and secluded as soon as you entered the gate. The property manager was very helpful and responsive. The upstairs floor has many windows with minimal coverage, so a full moon or sunlight may impact a light sleeper. We would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

Nice and Relaxing, Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed six nights in "Dove Cottage". We truly loved it. The house is in great condition. We loved the third story deck with ocean views. If you are not familiar with area, be sure to have a GPS as the street to the cottage is not clearly marked. It is only a short walk to the sand. Home has all you need for a nice family vacation. Love the patio with BBQ, lap pool and fountain. Two tight parking spaces. We comfortably slept five adults and two teenagers. Beds were very comfortable, master and two twin beds were Sleep Number. High quality towels and sheets. Good supply of beach items (chairs, towels, boogie boards, etc.).
