Why Dolores Hickman chose Beach Barber Tract

We love the ocean, and living 3 blocks to Windansea means we can walk to the beach and enjoy the sunset, yet be on a quiet street with awesome neighbors. It's just 5 or 6 blocks in the opposite direction to the Sunday Farmer's Market, and we have several terrific casual restaurants within walking distance. We love the location, and our 1940's beach house!

Perfect spot in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my month long stay in La Jolla. Everything was as advertised and Dolores was a very generous and pleasant landlord! I felt very at home and comfortable here and I highly recommend this rental! Dolores was kind enough to restock my towels and linens and even had maids clean the place at no extra cost. You can walk to local coffee shops and restaurants in La Jolla and you're just about 1/5 mile from the beautiful Pacific! Thank you for everything Dolores!

Wonderful stay in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent at Dolores's cottage was both wonderful and memorable. The cottage is comfortable and perfectly located for ease of walking or biking to all things La Jolla! One of our favorite experiences was sitting on the porch in the morning having breakfast and watching the charming antics of the numerous rufous hummingbirds.

We didn't want to go home!

Fantastic host, great location, wonderful cottage (with bicycles!)

  • 5 of 5

Dolores is unbelievably responsive; she responded within minutes to our texts, and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage is just three blocks from a lovely beach at Little Point (great place to watch sunset); Westbourne beach is right next door. We loved riding the beach cruisers that come with the cottage. The cottage is quiet and secluded; the street is, too. But restaurants, a great surf shop, and more are within easy walking distance. We loved it and would go back again. Thank you, Dolores, and your daughter, who helped us!

This cottage is a perfect retreat for 2

This is a lovely cottage. It is incredibly clean, comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect, the street is quiet and parking was never an issue. If you choose not to have a car beaches, restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. I would definitely stay at this cottage again!

Affordable and conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Jolla. The cottage is small but comfortable for two and is in a great location. Everything is walkable - restaurants, beaches, farmers market, grocery store, coffee shops, bars, etc. Dolores was a great host and made herself accessible if we needed her. I would recommend her cottage to family and friends looking for an affordable, quiet, and conveniently located place to stay in La Jolla.

Car: not necessary

Our charming studio cottage is located in the heart of the Windansea community, in the village of La Jolla. A few minutes walk away is the world-famous Windansea beach; check out the surfers, or just enjoy the sun, sand and bodysurfing at any of the neighboring beaches.

Walk a few short blocks to the best Farmer's Market, held every Sunday, and to the shops and restaurants of La Jolla. Enjoy fine dining and a sunset at Eddie V's or George's, overlooking the blue Pacific ocean, or brunch at the Cove, watching the kayakers and swimmers.

We are a few minutes drive from La Jolla Shores beach, where you can rent kayaks and tour the La Jolla Sea Caves, take a surfing lesson, sunbathe, swim and picnic.

La Jolla is centrally located in San Diego, and you can be hot-air ballooning or betting on the horse-races at Del Mar, or spending the day at the World Famous San Diego Zoo or SeaWorld, all just 15 minutes away by car.

We are a mere 20 minutes from the airport, as well as the restaurants and nightlife of the Gaslamp District downtown or Petco Park to catch a Padres game.

We have a lot to keep you busy, and a cozy cottage in a quiet neighborhood when you are ready to relax!
