About Paul Mudge

We purchased a "fixer upper" beach house in La Jolla as a vacation property. After a couple of years we chose to move from Orange County and live in our vacation house. Shortly thereafter we thought it would be a good idea to add a master bedroom to take advantage of the ocean views. As it happened the room addition became a complete re-build of the 1970's era house. Along the way we made sure to include all the features we wanted in a home we could share with guests. We are proud of the kitchen (we both love to cook) and the warm comfortable feeling you get when you enter the house.

We eventually moved back to Orange County to be closer to our work and in 2014 began offering the house to travelers on the Home Away and VRBO website.

Paul Mudge purchased this house in 2001

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the spectacular ocean views from the balconies. Sleeping with the windows open allows you to fall asleep listening to the ocean waves. We use to sit outside eating lunch or dinner for hours watching the waves, boats, surfers and the migrating whales. Our home has a warm, comforting feel. You will be drawn to the view immediately upon walking in. The is lots to do like relax and read a book, take a nap, go for a walk to the beach or visit a nearby San Diego attraction.

I stayed here with 4 other adults for a Leadership retreat and this property could not have been more perfect. Well kept, great amenities, and, of course, amazing views!! Paul was a pleasure to work with and very easy & quick to communicate with. Would definitely recommend this property. Thanks!!!

Nice house with great views

  • 5 of 5

The 3 story property was a great place for the 7 of us to enjoy a weekend away. A spacious kitchen offered plenty of room and supplies to cook meals. The top floor balcony leading out from the master bedroom offers great views of the ocean. The bottom floor had plenty of sleeping space with the hot tub that was tucked into the bottom patio offering good privacy. The owner was friendly and responsive. I would definitely stay here again.

Large house, nice house, and close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Three story house with plenty of room. You enter on the center level which has a large kitchen, large dining room, breakfast area, balcony, queen bedroom, full bathroom, and access to the two car garage (fit my full size SUV).

Bottom level (basement) walkout to the the backyard / hot tub contains living area, laundry room, 3/4 bath, small bedroom, king size master bedroom with full size bathroom, and queen size bedroom with full bathroom.

Upper level (top floor) contains queen size pull out bedroom, master suite bedroom with the master bathroom, second laundry room, and access to the upper balcony.

The house is two blocks away from the ocean which you can clearly see and hear from the main and upper level.

The house is clean and in good order. The owner, Paul is very attentive to your needs but you will not hear from him unless you start the conversation.

The neighborhood is safe and super quiet especially between 9 pm and 6 am. I went for several early morning walks (5am) and never felt out of place or threatened. Top rated restaurants and attractions are well within an easy drive. My family visited several and nothing seemed far away. There is a CVS pharmacy and several restaurants within two blocks. There is a small rocky beach access within two blocks and a small sandy beach access within five.

Simply put...great house in a great location.

Great location, Beautiful house.

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic location. great views and ideal location. Quiet neighborhood . Owner attentive after TV was broken...he replaced it. The house itself was in great shape. Only complaint was the two trundle beds and the pullout sofa bed mattresses were extremely soft. We're told the refrigerator would get colder but it never got below 41 degrees during our 7 day stay and the indicator on the door said " service". I would stay agin if these items were addressed.

Owner's Response: Ronald, Thank you for choosing to stay at our house and making us aware of those shortcomings. When the television stopped working we installed a brand new one as soon as we could. The trundle with the soft mattress will be replaced in February and we called for repair service on the Sub-Zero refrigerator. The refrigerator technician found nothing wrong with the unit. He suggested that it may have been improperly loaded causing the door not to seal properly. We have no other explanation and apologize that it was not working properly for you. We hope to see you again next time your travels bring you to San Diego. Sincerely, Paul Mudge
