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!

Pride of Ownership Rental

  • 5 of 5

I was overall very pleased with the house. I have gone to La Jolla every November for the last 4 years, and this was probably my favorite place. What I liked the most, was the wonderful well maintained private gate yard.My dog had a lot of room. While the property literally backs up to an alley with a sports bar and 7 Eleven on the other side, given that the house is the upscale neighborhood that it is, the noise wasn't too bad. You are essentially one block from the beach, within 1/4 mile of probably 5+ places to eat, and would estimate 3/4 of a mile to La Jolla Village, perhaps 1 1/2 miles to La Jolla Cove. Going the other way, you are maybe a mile to Birdrock, and 2 1/2 miles to the heart of Pacific Beach.

Given the location of the house, it is a great place for walks, finding places to do yoga and pilates, along with surfing in the pacific. Uber is all over the place should you wish to go out at night and have a few drinks. During my stay Sharron addressed all issues I encountered very quickly, with the possible minor exception that the gardner failed to show when he should have, causing the yard we had to frankly not look so nice for our last week. But stuff happens, I don't blame her, when balanced with all the other nice attributes of the house, I would highly recommend this place.

Great Location. Great for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my 10 month old daughter and had a wonderful time. The location is within walking distance to several restaurants/cafes as well as the Windnsea beach. Perfect family vacation location. Nice outdoor space and plenty of ammenties (including a highchair and pack n' play). Would definitely stay again.
