Great House with Lots of Character

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week-long stay in Bird Rock and we had a great time, in large part because of this charming house! It’s on a beautiful quiet street and just a short walk to the ocean and neighborhood shops, including a fantastic local coffee house. The house itself is open and inviting and is filled with unique art, some of it created by Scott, the owner. We especially loved the oversized tub in the master bedroom. The massage chair was a nice surprise as well as the high tech water purifier in the kitchen. There is also a nice deck with views of the ocean, lots of patio furniture, and an outdoor fireplace which was awesome. Two water features as well. We spent a LOT of time on the deck.

Scott was very friendly and helpful and even offered to let us borrow bikes and Boogie boards. Thank you for making us feel so welcome, we will be back!

Wonderful House and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four (parents and two adult sons) in town to visit family. Scott welcomed us to this lovely and well-stocked home. There is ample seating and a spacious kitchen and dining room. Seating outdoors was available also, and our kids and their cousins made good use of it. Fabulous views from the upstairs bedrooms, wonderful art throughout, comfy beds and strong Wi-Fi. I walked to the beach every day. Highly recommend!

Perfect San Diego Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to use as your base for a perfect San Diego vacation. The location in Bird Rock is close to everything you want to see and do. It's a beautiful location in La Jolla, but away from the hustle and bustle in the center of town. The house itself has everything you could need. Comfy beds and linens, fully equipped kitchen, and a a great patio with a fireplace, fountains, pizza oven/smoker and spectacular views of the ocean. It also has bikes, coolers, chairs, and more.

Scott, the owner, is a fantastic host. Very friendly and informative but not intrusive in the least. He made our vacation all the more enjoyable. One thing to be aware of is the house is located on a VERY steep hill. This didn't present a problem for us, but someone with difficulty walking may not be able to walk to the ocean/Bird Rock center. However it's a very quick ride in the car with plenty of parking.

Thank you again to Scott for this wonderful house and a great vacation!

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you enjoyed the serenity of our beautiful property. And we're so glad you enjoyed the panoramic vistas of the house. You can also see Dowtown San Diego, the Coronado Bay Bridge as well as San Diego's beautiful beaches. There is a green belt adjacent to the property that gives the house a special feeling of tranquility. The view is also spectacular at night, with the many firework displays all summer. We hope that you'll return again to enjoy our beautiful hideaway.

Great Place for Friends and Family!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving, the house was in immaculate condition, everything was clean and all amenities were provided from dishes, dishwasher detergent, clean towels, and sheets. Myself and the other guests were short of a surfboard, and Ivette was kind enough to give us an extra board saving us from the expensive surfboard rates! Scott and Ivette provided everything from surfboards to bikes. We were given the local spots and told of the best places in La Jolla and surrounding areas.

The interior of the house is beautifully decorated with welcoming earth tone colors and furniture. The Upstairs bathroom had a surprise steam room application that myself and the other two guests truly enjoyed. There are wood burning fireplaces indoors and outdoors, with a special wood burning oven and pizza oven that cook some amazing tasting food and are very practical in application.

Thank you Scott and Ivette for an awesome time! We hope to return soon!

A Perfect Place for Family Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us were lucky enough to find this wonderful house for our weeklong stay in LaJolla for a family wedding. You never know when booking online if the actual place will live up to the photos and description, but I can honestly say this home exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect - walking distance to the great shops and Bird Rock Coffee Roasters on LaJolla Boulevard and a quick and easy drive to all the local attractions. Ivette gave us her recommendations for places to go like the best nearby beach, closest grocery store, etc. We took full advantage of the fabulous patio - had a roaring fire every night - I am sure our hosts heard us laughing well into the late hours. We grilled out for dinner and even for breakfast.The kitchen had everything imaginable and we enjoyed cooking and eating at the huge table on the patio with the fountain bubbling in the background. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great - one has a steam shower that we flipped a coin for every day! And a jacuzzi tub in the master that I claimed for myself! Plenty of fluffy towels for three guys and two women and a full size washer and dryer when we needed it. The neighborhood is peaceful even being so close to everything. Scott and Ivette are the most amazing hosts - nothing was too much trouble and they did everything possible to make our stay a perfect one. Scott even brought us strawberries and avocados on our first night! Other out of town family members opted to stay in hotels and when they came for dinner one night, they were so jealous of our amazing vacation retreat. We are already working on dates to return in 2014. I cannot recommend this beautiful home highly enough and promise you will have an amazing vacation in a perfect location with the nicest property owners ever!!
