About the property

4(optionaly 5) Bd/4 Ba Beautifully Appointed Ocean View Beach House-Huge Kitchen

Ocean views abound from this well appointed yet casual beach house property, just steps from the sand.

A perfect place to relax and enjoy family and friends (and occasionally dolphins).

Step out the door, cross the only street between you and the Pacific, and your toes will be delivered to the sand.

Relax in this single story home that’s perfect for 2 or 3 families. The home features dual master bedrooms. One master has ocean views, the other has a tranquil view of the spa and garden. Each master has a King sized bed. One master has rain-head shower + separate tub. Other master has shower.

A kids room with bunked beds (one twin over one full) and en-suite tub/shower bathroom are on the opposite side of the main house from the masters.

The third King bed is in a detached ocean view “cottage” which has a bathroom with a shower.

Also detached is a large room with ping pong table. Fold the table away to create a quiet space for yoga or to open the sofa to reveal a 6th bed (queen size).

The floor plan is open with vaulted ceilings and tiled floors for easy beach living.

The kitchen was remodeled in 2012 with a granite countertop space to seat 7. The 8 foot dining table seats another 8-10. Place settings for 16 are provided. It’s a perfect home to gather friends or family for summer, holidays, vacations, or days ending in 'y'.

The large spa can be used cool, to refresh, or you can heat it and use the jets to warm up and relax after a day at the beach.

All bedding is all 100% cotton. Many 500 thread count or Ralph Lauren sheets and covers. Down comforters & pillows for all King beds (down alternative available upon request).

The living area is a great space to get cozy and catch up with family or friends while playing games, or watching a movie.

The garage has a washer/drier and space for 2 cars.

Gorgeous home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home twice in the past three years. It is a great layout for bigger families with kids (younger or older) with a separate ping pong room (you won't hear the noise from the main house) and spa tub that our boys loved after being in the ocean. Private surf lessons are available directly across the street. The house is tastefully decorated - serene - and very clean. The mattresses are good and the linens are fresh. Two washers are a great perk. Anything and everything is in close proximity to this house including local restaurants a two block walk away (try Barbarella's); Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and movie theatre less than a 10 min drive away; and Sea World and the Zoo less than a 20 min drive. I could go on and on - we will never get bored of this location and will return soonest!

Great house. Comfortable stay. Can't beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of nine (two families) and LOVED our stay at the Dolphin Watch house in La Jolla. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate our families and the ping pong table room was a huge added bonus for the kids!. The open floor plan and huge kitchen made it easy and comfortable to cook and enjoy wonderful meals. The house is right across from the beach and there is a large grassy area in between. It was super convenient for us as the kids could go off to the beach of play in the grass and we could watch from the large window in the dining room. Bed were comfortable, plenty of clean towels and linens and we loved the hot tub on the chilly evenings. All in all a great vacation!! Thank you!

lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is well done, and the hot tub nice and big. We were very comfortable. Right across from the beach, so no need to pile in car.

We missed the bedroom located by the front garden (not connected to the house). Its not completely obvious, but one of our group cancelled so we were fine.

We had no issues except that garbage pickup did not seem to happen from the previous tenants so the cans were quite full. I would recommend staying here.
