Great location, warm and friendly host

  • 5 of 5

We were in La Jolla for a wedding and stayed 3 nights at Scott's place. The location can't be beat, quiet area but close to the beaches and the nearby shops. The kitchen is well appointed and the place was spatious and comfortable for four adults and two 3 year olds. On our second day, Scott the owner who lives on the same street, came by and dropped off a bunch of fresh tuna caught just that day. Amazing! Highly recommended for families looking for a comfortable, artsy home in the heart of Bird Rock in La Jolla.

The house was just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family of 4. We loved being able to walk the wagon down to the ocean. My husband loved walking to the excellent coffee shop every morning! Our hosts were wonderful. My kiddos loved their room with the ocean view ! There were plenty of towels and beach gear!! I loved the patio and the outdoor grill! The artwork around the house was beautiful and fun! We loved the jacuzzi tub in the master suite!

Great house for a family.

  • 4 of 5

Went on a family vacation with adult kids. House has a lot of charm. It was perfect because the house was big enough that we were not bumping into each other but had a great gathering area downstairs and on the patio. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals in. Made use of the beach chairs and umbrella. Could use ceiling fans in the bedrooms but the owner left box fans in each if needed. Driveway is steep so could be difficult for a senior or someone with a disability. Well located...within 20 minutes of beaches, Shops of LaJolla, LaJolla Shores, Torrey Pines, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo and downtown San Diego. Scott the owner was super helpful.

Cozy Bird Rock Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Got together with a group of college friends, all celebrating 50th birthdays. This was a perfect place to do it! Great location - easy walk to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and Beaumonts, close to Marine Street Beach and downtown La Jolla. Beds were super comfy. We had a blast.

Charming and comfortable home in Bird Rock community of La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

This home is very charming and very comfortable in the Bird Rock community. The house was very spacious for my family of 6 and included some very pretty beach views. Scott was very welcoming and gave great recommendations for things to do in Bird Rock The Bird Rock coffee bar, Oscars Mexican Food, The Fisherie, and Dukes were some places we ate and highly recommend. The house has plenty of amenities that you could need. We used the boogie boards and the cooler at the beach with our kids and had a great time. We also left a toy bat and ball for future use. There were plenty of beach towels for use and a handy shower outside for removing that sand! We walked nearly everywhere including Tourmaline Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Belmont Park, La Jolla Shores, and Mt Soledad Memorial. We didn't shop much but there were plenty of cute storefronts in this town. The beds were oh so so so comfortable and the sheets were really soft! I don't think I have slept so well! There is a tv in every room, including the kitchen. While we didn't watch tv much. It was convenient for my son could play play station in one room and my parents could watch tv in another. The kitchen was perfect, we cooked several meals and were able to sit around the table as pictured for family breakfasts and dinners. Dining was also available outside. The bathrooms were well stocked with shampoo, conditioner, soap and clean towels, hair dryer, toilet paper. The hot tub/spa completely made up for any cloudy and cooler weather we experienced a few days of our trip (thanks so much Scott!). My family has so many wonderful memories made here and Scott I thank you for opening your home to us. I would recommend this home to anyone and hope to return to San Diego and could stay here again in the future!

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!
