Lovely home close to beach with all the amenities you'll need

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice place for a couple of families to share this is a great place in La Jolla. It isn't the biggest place available but it easily sleeps 9 and can sleep 10. Garden and barbecue make this a great place to walk back to after your day on the beach. Trampoline and basketball hoop add to the fun. Bring your wetsuit to surf the great waves along the coast. Everything else you need is provided!

Beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to make great meals for your group.

This is one of the best places I have rented in the past ten years and I would try to book it again if we go back to the San Diego area.

Property was delightful and delivered as promised

  • 4 of 5

We found this a great property for a family vacation of 3 generations including 4 kids age 3-6. The trampoline, basketball hoop, long paved driveway for scootering, garden space for Lego building and the many "nooks" for child sleeping all were big hits with the kids. The outside dining patio, cumphy living room (and beds), and beautiful and large kitchen were the delight of the adults. It really is 2 block (though they are long) from the beach which was very nice for our taste and pretty quiet. It was not great for swimming (pretty violent waves) but wonderful for sand castles, sunbathing, and wading. It is hard for us to imagine you being dissatisfied with this home and location, if you want to be close to the beach.

We could recommend a few things though: there is not much dresser space in the bed rooms. The kitchen would do with a repaired ice maker and coffee maker and a few additional items like cookie sheets, plastic gallon sized pitcher, and pot holders. It would also be nice to have more towel bars in the bath rooms. None of these are show stoppers but would have been nice.

The worst thing about the place was the application process and communication. We applied and were not accepted in the stipulated time frame so Home Away sent us a notice to 'pick a different property'. It was just sheer perserverence that made me call the owner and then do all the application a second time that got us through that hurdle. I felt that "house rules"/terms and agreements were cumbersome, requiring far too much stuff to be sent to the owner when simply agreeing with the terms of Home Away should be (and ultimately were, after a number of back and forths with the owners) enough.

Wedding " Home Away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home base for our daughter's wedding. The house has a wonderful layout to accommodate multiple adults. It is well stocked for entertaining and cooking. We were able to host a post wedding breakfast with the spacious backyard seating and by making use of the local bagel and pastry shops.

The house is walking distance to a beautiful beach and beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, coolers and surf boards were all available at the house for our use.

Parking near the house was never an issue.

Wish we were still there!

Great time at Beach Barber property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights with two families (9 people) at this property. It was a comfortable place to stay. The kids loved having the basketball hoop and trampoline.

I would recommend staying there if you want to be in the La Jolla area.

A Dreamy Summer!

We loved the area and the house. The home was well equipped for all our needs. We had some problems with bikes and the house alarm and the owners immediately resolved any issues. Thank you for a relaxing summer!
