Loved the place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you the place was fantastic we enjoyed every minute of it.

location perfect just a couple of minutes away from windandsea beach.

Only thing the TV was not working or at least I didn't manage to make it work but with this surrounding nobody needs a TV.

We will come back

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a wonderful time at Sea Shell Cottage! The TV works perfectly, for some reason the wires were plugged in incorrectly. It's all taken care of now.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our families! We loved the space of the house and the beautiful fenced yard! We felt comfortable and well taken care of. Our only complaint was that it could be a little cleaner in some areas, and the dishwasher didn't work too well. It was nice over all though and not too dirty, it was a very enjoyable stay.

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 . . .
