This is one truly adorable guest home that you will not want to miss. It is a block away from the breathtaking beach. Perfectly located 1/2 a mile between the famous Wind n Sea Beach and La Jolla Cove. Come park your car and never have to get back in it! Conveniently located on the Bike Path, great for walks or jogging. A short 1/2 mile from Village for shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores. The home has been completely remodeled, flat screen TV in the living area and bedroom, a queen size Tempur-Pedic bed, bamboo wood floors in the kitchen and living space, out door heated shower to wash off at when coming back from the beach, washer and dryer and private entrance...No expense was spared.

Beautiful guest house, perfect location
The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need! The location was perfect to be able to walk everywhere - art & wine festival, the Cove, the Cave, restaurants and coffee shops, grocery store, farmers market and of course the beach!! We loved it! John was so nice and easy to work with - we would definitely go back!!
Thanks Sharon, loved having you! Hope to see you again soon! John
Comfy, tidy, and a skip from a great beach
Outstanding stay at this lovely cottage. Owners John and Katie could not have been any more accomodating (even let my son and I practice our funny wedding dance in the courtyard!). All furniture very comfortable, bed linens and mattress especially so. Quiet beach, with soft sand, and watched amazing surfing from both upper and lower
ends. A car is totally unnecessary, great restaurants just a couple blocks away. This was exactly what we hoped for—a quiet getaway for R&R before it gets crazy with our sons wedding this weekend. Thanks so much to our gracious hosts!
Loved having you guys! Great dancers! Enjoy the wedding, a very special time! Love to have you return someday
J+K. Safe travels!
This was the best for us in La Jolla! Beautiful, clean, conveniently located...! The owners are the best. We look forward to a revisit.
Thanks guys! Do come back again someday! John
We've stayed in the San Diego area numerous times over the past four years but this by far is our favorite! It's the perfect guest house set up, ideal for a couple. The location is a very short walk (like 50 yards) to the clean, neighborhood beach and the sunset view from the deck is sublime!
Walk to the grocery store, walk to restaurants, enjoy strolling the stunning homes in this exclusive neighborhood.
The hosts couldn't be nicer! John & Katie have thought of everything to make your stay the very best for your visit AND she's a interior designer and it shows! We've already booked our next stay with them.
I've spent endless hours on booking sights, read hundreds of reviews, I am so relieved that from here on it will be so easy, I'll book the Guest House in La Jolla. Your search is over, book it! :-) Linda/ Portland, Oregon
Thanks so much Linda, we enjoyed having you and glad we will see you again!!! John
Such a Serene Space...🌟💫💕
I live in the neighborhood & chose to stay here while my floors were being re-done.
My weeklong stay in the John & Katie’s guest cottage was simply amazing. It truly felt like home away from home but with some sprinklings of peacefulness & serenity thrown in.
It was better than imagined.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Outstanding choice for two adults
Great choice for two adults. Cute and modern cottage. Fantastic location less than 2 blocks from beach. Owner John is very accommodating. Everything was ready upon our arrival. So much more fun than staying in some high rise hotel in my opinion. Highly recommend this call VRBO choice.
