About the Property

2 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

My light-filled, two bedroom, one-bath home sits two blocks from the surfers' paradise, Windansea, and other La Jolla beaches. Surrounded by aromatic plants, trees and cacti, this bright coral cottage has two outdoor patios, one for dining, another for barbecuing and sunning yourselves in privacy. Built in 1948, the cozy house boasts hardwood floors, crown molding, a lovely fireplace, a separate dining room, large windows and other craftsman touches. The neighborhood is foodie heaven, as eateries—from authentic taco shops to excellent Greek and Italian restaurants, a beloved sports bar to upscale eateries—dot the neighborhood along La Jolla Boulevard. The breathtaking and famed La Jolla Cove with its colonies of harbor seals, brown pelicans and other wildlife is just a short walk away, taking you through the 'downtown' shops of La Jolla Village. And if ocean swimming is not your thing, La Jolla's outdoor community pool and multiple tennis courts are two blocks to the east on the campus of La Jolla High.
The scale of the rooms, the quality of the light, and location, location, location make this sweet, traditional cottage a happy home away from home.

•No smoking is allowed inside my sweet home
•Due to the moderate coastal climate, this house (like most in the area) does not have air conditioning; it does have excellent, if infrequently needed, heating.
•My home is located in a quiet neighborhood and is only suitable for families or quieter groups. My rental contract includes a strong policy regarding loud noise, excessive occupancy and big parties. Please make sure you are comfortable with these policies before renting Windansea Craftsman Cottage. I treasure my relationships with my neighbors and want renters who honor them, too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: That's me and my three wonderful sons enjoying a winter sunset at Windansea Beach, just down the street from my sweet home. The draw of the sunsets here is irresistible, and many nights you'll see scores of people sipping wine and watching the sun slowly drop beneath the horizon, as if we were all enjoying one of Nature's best movies. I was a dance and theater critic on the East coast and then in San Diego for many years. Now I write, edit and teach Yoga here in La Jolla. I'm eager to share this beautiful spot with you.

Why the Owner Chose La Jolla, San Diego, CA, USA:
Perfect location! Walking distance everywhere in La Jolla. Close but not noisy close to a great beach and surf spot. Neighborhood eateries line nearby La Jolla Blvd. Free tennis courts and a huge community pool a block away. And the house itself is so charming.
