Great place to stay in LaJolla

  • 5 of 5

This little gem was in a great location and was a quick ride to all the attractions to see in SD. I was pleased that there was parking almost always in front on the apartment. (LaJolla itself was very difficult to see and get to places due to parking issues.) You do stand on the sidewalk and see the ocean, it is a quick walk down two blocks and you are there. A lot of unique houses to savor on that walk as well.

The place itself was small and they do make great use of the space. The bed was super comfortable albeit was I surprised it only came up to my shin and I am 5'4". Platform bed was something different for us. The shower was incredible, always hot water, you can stand in there forever. The mexican restaurant two blocks over had the best food - we went 3 times during our stay as it was so convenient and awesome.

If you are traveling by yourself this area and apartment felt very safe. My husband and I enjoyed our trip and staying here. Do not try to have more than two people; you will be disappointed- enjoy solitude or a romantic getaway here and you cannot go wrong. The deposit was back within the week we returned home.

Very Nice Accommodations in La Jolla

  • 4 of 5

My biggest fear was the on-street parking because I have had issues in places like New York, but there was nothing to worry about--parking was easy.

Yes, the apartment is small, 250 square feet, but knowing that and being prepared makes it not a problem. The bed is comfortable; the kitchen well-equipped (even has Kershaw Pure Komachi knives--rentals hardly ever have decent cutlery), the internet extremely fast (pegged my Speedtest meter), and the security is really convenient. The shower is great and the water is hot. The neighbors are friendly. There is a nice Mexican restaurant right around the corner; a great cafe a block away for breakfast and many other places within walking distance. Although the laundry is shared with other tenants, it was quite accessible.

Sharon was very nice and quick to respond to any questions (needed a mailbox key).

Being pet friendly is important because we travel with our miniature schnauzer.

Overall this is a good choice if you're looking for a place in the area with a good location.

Well-Located and quiet property near the beach in La Jolla!

  • 5 of 5

We understood going into the vacation that the property was relatively small but it was so well-appointed, with an efficient use of space that we did not even notice the size issue. We happened to bring down with us from Vancouver, weather which broke a ten-year drought in S. California You're welcome! We used the rainy days to drive to various San Diego locations while using the fair days to walk to the nearby beaches and La Jolla stores. The rental property was quiet and had a secluded back yard with BBQ which suited our needs. Would definitely return and also would definitely deal with Sharon again.

Nicely Done!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Despite being on the small side, the owner refurbished it with super nice finishes and fixtures, it is fully stocked, and the patio is lovely. The location is also centrally located to the beach and our favorite neighborhood stops.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this studio! It worked great for my purposes. Only thing I will say is the rooms are smaller in person than they are in the pics. This is the story however everytime I book a place because the pics on the rental websites are taken with wide angle lenses and it makes the rooms look bigger than they actually are. I think it should be required information the square footage of a place the way they give that information when someoen is selling their house. That information, if given on all rentals, would be very advantageous, atleast in my mind. I was only one person so the place worked great for me. Sharon, the owner, was awesome and got back to me immediately if I had any questions. I would definitely stay there again. The studio is in a great location & it was lovely that there was a washing machine and dryer that I could use. It would be a great place to stay in the summer!

Very small but well equipped studio suite.

  • 3 of 5

Somewhat skillful mirror placements and clever photography misrepresents the size of this very small suite which must include the outside patio.

The locality is excellent and the kitchen is very well equipped, however, with short stays not sure how much is actually needed.

Storage is at a premium with nothing in the bedroom. A "closet" in the living area shared with cleaning items and extra linen was available plus a cabinet above and below the TV had some openings for clothing.

The towels provided for the bathroom were very small and thin. Having said this, had there been thicker towels, there would not have been place for storage of them. The shower was always hot and enjoyable.

To enter the bedroom you have to pass through the bathroom which is not always convenient. Virtually impossible to have 2 people in the bathroom at one time.

We were definitely disappointed by the actual size of this studio but the locality made up for it and the fact that we spent very little time in it.

We would not choose to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi There, The studio is 250 square feet which is clearly stated in the description. The private patio outside is about an additional 250 square feet. Everyone who stays here (myself included!) loves it. The towels are thick and nice, and the bed has premium sheets. You do have to walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom, but this hasn't been a problem for any of our many other happy guests. Having a separate bedroom in a studio (with studio pricing) is a nice benefit!
