Great family-friendly beach house

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 7 kids and 3 adults had a comfortable stay in this cute house. There was plenty of room for everyone to hang out in the living room or outdoors, and there were plenty of places to sleep. The location was ideal for walking to the beach, La Jolla Village or driving down to camp in Mission Bay. The house has a laundry machine, which we used quite a bit.

As another guest mentioned, we heard barely any noise from the nearby 7-Eleven or restaurant.

Good Family Place.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable enough for the size family we were. (A few things were not in tip top shape, but nothing terrible.) The walkable beach is a bit rough for the ages of the kids we had, but Mission Beach and Pacific Beach were drivable within a few miles and perfect for ages 4-8. It was great to have the boogie boards and pails, etc for use at the house. There were plenty of restaurants within a short drive. Torrey Pines Park and nature center were great for some hikes; amusement park for kids at Mission Beach was fun; and house was walkable to the seals.Fenced in yard was perfect for kids; outdoor table for eating was also great!

Pure Family Joy

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 generations of our family in this charming cottage for the July 4th Holiday. Our corgi joined us, too. It was perfect! The kitchen was well stocked, there were extra towels for the bathrooms if needed, chairs, towels and an umbrella for the beach and additional fans if it was warm. The private parking spaces were greatly appreciated as well as the washer and dryer. The entire home is fenced in with a large lovely yard. We enjoyed grilling on the BBQ and dining outside. We walked to breakfast most every morning. The air was crisp, the traffic light and there's something so very special about a cup of coffee and a croissant while on vacation. Wind and Sea Beach was only a few blocks away. We enjoyed lazy afternoons there and the sunsets were breathtaking. This home is well photographed and is truly as comfortable as it looks. We will be back . . .

Great family destination

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! I have 3 young kids and the house was perfect for us. The beach was about a 5 min walk and a lot of cute little shops and restruants about 7-10 min walk. My youngest is 2 and she managed just fine with or without a stroller. The layout of the house is very comfortable. Finally you can not beat that beautiful yard it was perfect for a day in to just let the kids play outside. We truly enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Cute little place.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, good location, no frills but basics covered. The yard is great for kids and the walk to the beach is easy. Parking can be a challenge if you have big cars/trucks but manageable. We used the cars for trips to Sea World, etc but otherwise walked most places which is easy to do. Don't be scared off by the 7-11 or alleyway - very quiet neighborhood.

Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sharon's place with our dog and a few other family members over xmas and NYE. We were at the house for two weeks and were so sad to leave. The place is beautiful, well appointed and clean. She has provided everything you need. The neighborhood is safe and just steps from the ocean. The garden is gorgeous and it was perfect for our dog to play in. I honestly can't imagine a better place to stay. We will be back - it was one of our best vacations. Thank you, Sharon!
