Warm welcome

  • 4 of 5

We received such a warm welcome to our stay at Bird Rock. The location is great, in the heart of a wonderful neighborhood and walking distance to Bird Rock Coffee. We did use the oven, and very much enjoyed our evenings on the patio. It was great for the 5 of us that stayed. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in La Jolla!

Great, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us (3 adults, two kiddos), and we loved having all the outdoor space/patios. The house was very cute and comfortable and in a great location close to the ocean. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we were always able to reach them right away if we had a question. Highly recommended!

Charming house and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

This lovely and very comfortable house in La Jolla is on a hilly, quiet street close to shops and the ocean.The house is three levels, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, huge and well equipped kitchen and a wonderful patio. Everything you need (including a resident cat who doesn't mind being evicted!) is there. The hosts, Scott and Yvette, live next door. They were very helpful and welcoming. I would love to LIVE in this house and would certainly rent it again on another trip to La Jolla

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!
