About the Property

Retreat Located 1/2 Block From Village Amenities and 3 Blocks from Beach

Enjoy La Jolla and the San Diego area from a lovely residential neighborhood, just six blocks to the La Jolla Cove and 1/2 block from downtown La Jolla Village!

BRAND NEW,TOP-OF-LINE, POWERFUL CENTRAL AIRCONDITIONING HAS RECENTLY BEEN INSTALLED (even though really not needed as so close to the beach that the residence enjoys the cool ocean breezes) !.



All appliances and designer furnishings in this sophisticated contemporary are brand new as of November 2013. There is sleeping for four – the master bedroom has a king bed, the guest bedroom has two full beds; all mattresses are Plushtops. The granite countertop kitchen is fully equipped. There is a dining room for six and includes a kitchen island for additional dining. There is also a brand new washer and dryer in utility room. Free Cable TV and WI-fi Internet come with the rental.

The retreat has a large, private deck with a dining area for 4, a BBQ, and an outdoor sofa for lounging in the evenings under the canopy of lights and a large 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 6 blocks to the Beach and less than 1/2 block La Jolla Village businesses, dining, shopping and other activities are right next to 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 street parking space for one car.

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

Welcome to La Jolla and “your home away from home”. In Spanish, La Jolla means 'the jewel,' and as a local resident of La Jolla, CA for more then 20 years, I am proud to call this ‘jewel’ home and look forward to you exploring and discovering this breathtaking, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean. Enjoy Your Visit & ‘Your Home’

– Thank you, Owner, Lisa Widmier

Exploring La Jolla:

There is no shortage of things to explore and discover right in La Jolla from eating at top restaurants with expansive views to strolling along the ‘cove’ to learning to ocean kayak to taking in a show at our Tony Award-winning Playhouse.

Here is a short list of my top 10 picks for places to discover:
1. La Jolla Playhouse: If there's a show on, don't miss the Tony Award-winning La Jolla Playhouse - in the past 20 years, they've launched no less than nine plays to Broadway (including Jersey Boys, I Am My Own Wife and Memphis), with six of them winning Tony Awards and one garnering a Pulitzer Prize.
2. Mount Soledad: Climbing up to the Mount Soledad War memorial affords magnificent views of La Jolla, San Diego and beyond.
3. Torrey Pines Reserve: Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is located within San Diego city limits and yet remains one of the wildest stretches of land on our Southern California coast! Because of the efforts and foresight of the people in this area, 2000 acres of land are as they were before San Diego was developed -with the chaparral plant community, the rare and elegant Torrey pine trees, miles of unspoiled beaches and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds. Well worth taking a few hours to hike (easy hiking tails) to explore this Park.
4. La Jolla Cove & Shores: This is still the number one draw for visitors from around the globe; a simple stroll along the seawall above the cliffs will quickly reveal why? La Jolla Cove is a small, picturesque cove and beach that is surrounded by cliffs in La Jolla, San Diego, California. The Cove is protected as part of a marine reserve; underwater it is very rich in marine life, and is popular with snorkelers and scuba divers.
The swells that often roll in from the open ocean here can be rather large and strong, and so being in the water at the Cove is not always suitable for people who do not have good water skills. The water temperature is also often a little colder than the average San Diego beach, and the beach has the disadvantage that the dry sand area is very small at high tide. In contrast, during very low tides, a lot of interesting tide pools are revealed at the Cove.
5. Shop Girard Ave & Prospect Street: The choice of celebrities and bargain-hunters alike, La Jolla is for all who seek 'just for me' instead of 'me, too'. Here, you'll find the priceless and the popular. The haute couture and the comfortably familiar. The world's most luxurious brands and the everyday values. Who wouldn't you rather browse a beautiful seaside village than a crowded, noisy mall? However, it is the numerous art galleries that get my top pick for ways to shop or ‘window shop’ in my hometown.
6. Take in the Sunset: Take your pick from the WindanSea, The Shores or The Cove; all offer amazing places to watch the sunset. People camp out hours in advance with their lawn chairs and picnic dinners to experience one of the most photographed sunsets in the world.
7. La Jolla Open Aire Market: Every Sunday, the upper playground at La Jolla Elementary is transformed into a colorful, friendly and wholesome Farmer's Market. Come experience the community feel, live music, creative artisans, diverse food court, and local farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Consistently ranked as one of the largest and best farmers markets in San Diego, our Sunday Market in La Jolla has grown to become one of the premier weekly events for locals and tourists alike. Families and their kids can enjoy the live music, fresh air, playgrounds, and grass fields to run and play on.
8. Birch Aquarium at Scripps: Birch Aquarium at Scripps is the public exploration center for the world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the aquarium features more than 60 habitats of fishes and invertebrates from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest to the tropical waters of Mexico and the Caribbean. An interactive museum showcases research discoveries by Scripps scientists on climate, Earth and ocean science.
9. Museum of Contemporary Art – La Jolla: At MCASD in La Jolla, take in the fabulous ocean view from the Edwards Garden Gallery, or lunch on the patio at the Museum Cafe. The La Jolla location also houses the Museum’s X Store, filled with a selection of contemporary art books, apparel, and innovative design objects.
10. Biking, ocean kayaking, paddle boarding, etc: The town was designed for outdoor ‘lovers’ and there is no shortage of ideas from renting cruiser bikers and exploring the town by bike to kayaking to learning to surf. However, my top pick, would be to rent a kayak and explore the La Jolla Caves.

And here is my top picks for places to eat from take out to casual dining to top-notch restaurants:
Great Take Out places ($-$$): El Pescador Fish Market, 627 Pearl Street or The Promiscuous Fork, 6984 La Jolla Blvd. *one of my favoriate things to do is grab take out from either of these places and watch the sunset at the La Jolla Cove or WindanSea Beach
Great Casual Dining places (aka very family friendly) ($-$$$): Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza, 702 Pearl Street or Prepkitchen, 7556 Fay Ave.
Great Top-Notch Restaurants with amazing views ($$$-$$$$): A.R. Valentien, The Lodge at Torrey Pines, ask for a table out on the deck and watch the sunset over the 18th hole of Torrey Pines Golf Course, rated one of the top restaurants for a reason, well worth the experience or Eddie V’s, 1270 Prospect Street, amazing views, service and food, one of my personal favorite places to dine.
