About the property

New Construction Private Cottage WithPrivate Yard

With your own private cottage enjoy La Jolla beaches and village and the San Diego area from a lovely residential neighborhood, just four blocks from the golden sand of WindanSea and Marine Street beaches. THE RESIDENCE HAS AIRCONDITIONING (even though really not needed as so close to the beach that the residence enjoys the cool ocean breezes) !

. Accommodations are a 1 bedroom/1 bath with large living/dining/kitchen area and private fenced in yard with fig and fruit trees. All appliances and designer furnishings in this sophisticated contemporary are brand new in 2011. There is sleeping for four – the Master bedroom has a King bed, the living room features a sofa sleeper for two. King Mattress is Plushtop and BRAND NEW. The granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped with dining area for 6 and an island area for eating and cooking. Free Direct TV and WiFi Internet come with the rental. The unit also includes a washer and dryer.

San Diego is all about outdoor living, and the cottage is surrounded by a beautiful private garden courtyard with lemon and fig trees. There is a dining table for 6 and BBQ to enjoy and a beautiful outdoor living room under the canopy of a tree.

The house is in a great location for enjoying the amenities of La Jolla and the San Diego area. La Jolla is a friendly town for walking. It is just four blocks to the Beach and La Jolla Village businesses, dining, shopping and other activities are within ½ mile of the retreat – town center, museums, restaurants, shops and businesses. A delightful Sunday Farmers Market is a source of fresh produce and unique crafts. The Coggan Aquatic Center with Olympic-size pool and sports complex offering tennis courts, track, baseball fields and basketball courts is located just two blocks east of the home.

As an alternative to strolling thru La Jolla, the main public bus line stops within a block of the house and provides transportation throughout La Jolla and south to Pacific Beach, Mission Bay and other San Diego destinations. Beach bikes are also readily available for rental. The retreat has off-street covered parking for one car as well as on street parking and a public lot just a short block away.

Come and enjoy the beauty and relaxation provided by our fabulous La Jolla!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I were thrilled when we walked through the gate and into this private garden retreat. Being retired and in our 80's, We are frequent VRBO travellers. Never have we been treated to an organic vegetable garden!!! We dined on salad harvested from the garden! We dined outside under the stars. We rested in the hammock every day - another surprise treat. I managed my stock portfolio while lounging in the shade on the patio sofas. My wife enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen. Every thing appears to be brand new in this cottage! This had to be professionally designed as every piece of art and furniture is perfect.



We will be returning definately.

Was a great choice for us.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is small, but very nice. It's clean, modern, and well-situated for exploring SD. Quiet, too. Close to perfect for a couple or small family, especially with the outdoor space. The owner was also very helpful when booking and genuinely interested in making sure the cottage was a good fit for us. You won't be disappointed, especially if you're comparing this to a standard hotel room or suite. This is a superior option in every way.

Nice cozy hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend a month here and we loved it! The location is very good - close to both the ocean and many fine shops and restaurants. It's located in a nice quiet and safe neighborhood. Having a separate/private off street parking space is a huge plus, too.

One of the best this about this rental is how clean everything was when we arrived. It is also fairly easy to keep clean. The unit was pretty well stocked with basic kitchen utensils and supplies. We loved it so much we've already booked our stay for next year! Thanks, Lisa!

Lovely Cottage By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

Our month's stay in the cottage was perfect. The living space, dining room and open kitchen were lovely and provided everything we needed. In the mornings we loved walking to nearby WndNSea Beach, or having coffee and reading outdoors in our sunny patio. Close to the village of La Jolla, yet quiet and secure. If we needed anything, Lisa or Adelaide were available quickly. It's been such a pleasure, we are sure to be back!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at this property. The cottage was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. It was equipped with everything you could need: a well-stocked kitchen, full size washer and dryer, beach towels, beach umbrellas and chairs. This made our stay very comfortable and convenient. Everything in the house was very organized and labelled, so it made it easy to find things and put them away again.

The pullout sofa in the living room worked well for our 2 kids. We loved having an outdoor table for dining and rarely even used the table in the house. Although there is AC, we never turned it on. The windows stayed open to catch the cool breezes. The garden was a special surprise. The kids delighted in the fruit trees and watching the tomatoes ripen in the vegetable garden. The parents enjoyed sipping a glass of wine in the garden after the kids had gone to bed.

Lisa was very responsive and we appreciated her list of restaurants and sightseeing recommendations. We didn't rent a car and did not miss one. The beach was easy walking distance, as were numerous great restaurants. If we needed to go farther (a day trip to Legoland, a trip to La Jolla Shores to go kayaking) we took Uber.

Altogether and very relaxing and enjoyable week in La Jolla. We hope to return.
