About Jim Sanford
I purchased the house in 1989 and have continuously updated since then. The home had been in vacation rental for periods (when traveling for work) since 2003 and for most of that period Barb (who lives in the unit in back) and I worked together to manage "The Pottery Barn House" with the goal of providing a superior guest experience for enjoying the home while vacationing in La Jolla. Because of recent San Diego City Council restrictions on short term rentals, the house was in long term lease but short term stays ( minimum 7 nights), available again after July16, 2019 with management from Seabreeze a local agent just a few blocks way. (San Diego TAT tax of 10.5% applies to stays 30 nights or less)..Long term rates/ lease still available. Contact through "ask owner a question" . Originally from the Midwest ( Champaign, IL),I went to college in Indiana (De Pauw University), graduate school in Chicago ( University of Illinois) and ended up in San Diego. I remain quite active, my main hobby is swimming, both pool and ocean which I do daily, along with gym workouts on campus at UCSD and running. I enjoy travel, when time permits and visits to Maui, where I lived for 2 years and still have a condo (VRBO/61838!).

Why Jim Sanford chose La Jolla
This has been my home since 1989. I have traveled all over the world and would not trade this for anything! La Jolla truly is a gem that fortunately is still somewhat untouched from masses of tourists. The location, weather, and available activities are uncomparable world wide. The home is one of the older beach homes remaining in the area and is very well maintained with large yards, front and back. These homes unfortunately are disappearing in the area as older home are built out in condo style development. If you are looking for a little character and appreciate the privacy and space of a traditional yard , this is the house for you.
What makes this House unique
Again, La Jolla is unbeatable for location, weather and activities. Summer in La Jolla is like being on the French, Italian, or Spanish Riviera without the crowds! The house is older, well maintained, traditional , with privacy and large front and back yards. As with all houses, you avoid the congestion and risks of large hotel complexes in urban areas.

Great location and perfect place to enjoy La Jolla. Jim was very attentive and helpful
We enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Perfect location to beach and downtown area
Staying at the Pottery Barn house was a wonderful getaway and the perfect choice for us. So much better than a hotel! Having a toddler with us, he loved having a backyard to run around and safely play in. We loved the spacious flow of the house and all the natural light. Barb was extremely accomodating and helpful and attentive to all our needs.The house is well stocked with all we could ask for and really nicely decorated. The location of the house is ideal. Close to Wind and Sea beach but also close to all the shopping and restaurants of downtown La Jolla. All this and the neighborhood is quiet. It was fun to discover the Sanctuary day spa accros the street:) The 7-eleven down the street proved very convenient and our son loved discovering slurpees! We really hope we able to come back to this wonderful retreat soon.
