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.

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.

It doesn't get any better

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for about 6-weeks. I used to live in the area so know the neighborhood well. The location is top notch and just a few blocks from the famous Windansea Beach which I think is one of California's finest and culturally interesting. The pictures of the rental do a great job of displaying this well appointed cottage which is in excellent condition and has all the accouterments. I was super comfy for my stay, everything works, and it has everything I needed (tons of towels, great kitchenware, coffee maker, etc.). It's nice and quiet and has an awesome backyard with vegetable garden, fruit trees, outdoor dining and lounge area. Along with the beach, breakfast, lunch, coffee and dinner spots are a few blocks away. The owner, Lisa, was a very professional property manager - very responsive and interested in my stay being perfect. I had no reason to contact her as the set-up was literally perfect, but we still ended up connecting as she checked in to see how I was doing and she came by once to grab some veggies from the garden. She's awesome as is the housekeeper Adelaide - very nice. These five stars are for excellent house, excellent location, excellent service and all around great experience.

A Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at this perfect spot.

Lisa and her team, Adelaida and John, couldn't have been more gracious. Their support and hospitality greatly enhanced our time in La Jolla.

We spent the months of February and March here and we couldn't have been better situated. The beach is two blocks away...and I should say...amazing beach. Within walking distance are wonderful restaurants...fish, Thai, pizza and many more spots. I personally would have lived at the fish place on Pearl Street....El Pescator. If I wasn't eating there I was buying fish to cook at home. Everything you want is right around you and the Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, within walking distance, is a must do for fresh produce and citrus.

The cottage was perfectly equipped. The kitchen was wonderful to work in and had just about everything I needed to cook great meals...there is also an outside grill for our use. The garden is beautiful and Lisa has just planted some beautiful lemon, orange and apple trees...hopefully you'll be there to enjoy the fruits as they ripen....and if not, you'll enjoy the intoxicating scent of the flowers...as we did.

We also spent the month of January at Lisa's other property in Bird Rock, and that too was a great spot.

Thank you Lisa for sharing your great properties with us and for being a caring host. Our Winter in La Jolla was wonderful.

Very comfortable, felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa was very easy and accommodating with lots of great local tips in her welcome package! The space is very comfortable, and it doesn't take long to feel right at home. The place is very organized and clean and the kitchen has everything a 'cook' would want or need to prepare amazing meals. I loved all the eating spaces the home offered; from the counter bar with comfortable stools, to the the beautiful outdoor table for hosting dinner parties under an amazing tree, to the wonderful intimate indoor dining area to dine by candlelight. Though not a TV watcher, I loved the down stuffed sofa in the living room for reading; I finished off a few books while making myself a home in this beautiful open space. I opened all the windows and french doors and enjoyed the smell and breeze off the ocean a few blocks away (4 or so). The property also has fruit trees; though nothing was ready to be picked just get, I look forward to coming back and harvesting a lemon or two for cooking with.

Private garden is sweet

  • 4 of 5

The private garden is a lovely feature. The location is great, and the house is very quiet. The bedroom is very comfortable, the bed is great, with tons of drawer and closet space. The bathroom is perfect, and the kitchen has great appliances and is well appointed. The living room and dining areas are a bit spare.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, we love how quiet this unit is and we also feel the garden is rather special. We created a lovely eating area outside since your stay and did a few things to our inside living room and dining area since your stay as well. Hope to host you again.
