About the property


A beautifully appointed craftsman family home; with 3-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms located on the same level. This home is in the heart of Bird Rock mere blocks to the waters edge and La Jolla Blvd. where you will find great boutiques, restaurants and one of the best coffee houses San Diego has to offer (ranked top-10 nationwide -Bird Rock Coffee Roasters).

This home is perfect for families with two to four children. It is also perfect for adults traveling together who want the privacy of their own bedroom.

The street is very peaceful and has beautiful mature trees that line it. It is truly MILLION DOLLAR ROW! Every home is valued at over one million dollars to several million dollars.

Bird Rock is only a quick 10-minute drive into the City of San Diego and a 2- minute drive to the heart of La Jolla Village. Or better yet, rent cruiser bikes, and bike the great bike trails that connect Bird Rock to the La Jolla Cove and Village.

The craftsman style details are noticeable throughout the home from the built-ins to hardwood floors to the amazing stain-glass light fixtures found throughout the home. The kitchen is a Chefs delight with high-end Viking appliances, gas range stove. The kitchen is fully stocked with top of line kitchen items. A full-size top-of-line and brand new washer and dryer are provided in the residence.

The master suite is very open with wood beam ceilings and over looks a well-established garden and has an amazing en-suite with huge shower with rain showerhead. There is also a large closet. The room has a queen bed with a plush pillow top and lovely bedding with duvet.

One of the guest room features two twin beds and the other guest room has a double bed with bunk bed on top.

San Diego is all about outdoor living; and there is a huge deck/patio area with built in BBQ and counter seating for 5, plus a large dining table for six, two lounge chairs on grassy lawn and a lovely sofa with fire pit. You can also pick lemons and herbs from the garden for cooking.

The inside has a great dining room for 6 (optional 8) with a wood-burning fireplace in the space and a large sofa in living room/great room for lounging and watching TV.

We offer lounge chairs, books, games, and towels for taking to the beach!

Street parking is offered and is very easy to find in this area.

Why Lisa Widmier chose Bird Rock

This is a rare opportunity to stay in a home in a neighborhood filled with homes that are more than $1 million dollars. This home is as well. Welcome to La Jolla and “your home away from home”. In Spanish, La Jolla means 'the jewel,' and as a local resident of La Jolla, CA for more then 20 years, I am proud to call this ‘jewel’ home and look forward to you exploring and discovering this breathtaking, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean. Enjoy Your Visit & ‘Your Home Away from Home’

What makes this house unique

I love the beachy, comfortable craftsman feel of this home. This home has good vibes.

Ideal Bird Rock home

  • 5 of 5

No better choice for enjoying Bird Rock. The street is something out of a post card, you can walk to everything in Bird Rock and bike to La Jolla or Mission Beach. Can't wait to stay again.

Great family home and terrific location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 3 generation family week in this home. Lay out conducive to balance of group and private time. Fire pit in back yard a big hit. We loved walking around Bird Rock and beaches and recommend the bike path/trail over to Nautilus and into LA Jolla village. We hope to return!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very cute craftsman style house. I rented it for 2.5 months and it was a great location walking distance to everything in BirdRock. You can walk to the beach to watch the sunset but need to drive if you are going to hang out at the beach. But it is only a five minute drive. The house is very comfortable with high end appliances. Nice quite neighborhood..

This is an amazing home in an amazing neighborhood!!! I hated to leave! I will book this home again for another several months so I hate to submit a glowing review as I am afraid that others will book it before I do.....but Lisa is so amazing that I feel it is the right thing to do to post this glowing review. This stay has changed my life. Every morning, I walked to the #1 rated local coffee brewery in the US = 1/2 block away. I made many friends there. I also walked to the ocean - short walk. I am a fan of craftsman architecture and this house is that. I loved sitting out on the covered front porch and reading for hours. My daughter and her kids came to visit and the house is layed out very nicely with the two guest bedrooms in the front of the house with their own bathrooms. The HUGE viking stove and refrig supported my cooking habit as I am a retired chef. I ended up entertaining all the neighbors for several dinners! They were all so lovely! This is a familly neighborhood with million dollar homes. I felt very lucky to be a part of this neighborhood.

Fabulous Find in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the Craftsman Home in Bird Rock and couldnt have asked for a more perfect home and location for our family of six. We absolutely adored the house and the neighborhood and were literally a few blocks from some of the most gorgeous ocean views and walks in the United States. We are well-seasoned travelers and loved the fact that we could stroll the beach mornign or night and literally walk around the corner to numerous restaurants, shops, and cafes, or take a short drive to la Jolla Cove and the shops on Girard and Prospect streets. The house itself had everything we needed, 3 bedorroms, beautiful bathrooms, a high-end kitchen and a great outdoor patio with a built in grill and seating area. We cannot wait to come back to stay again the next time we visit the San Diego area.

Lisa was great and the house is very nice for a family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (we have 3 kids) very much enjoyed our stay and found the home spacious and comfortable but still cosy feeling. Really has everything we needed. Be aware that the master bedroom (and only that room, everything else is perfect) gets a little warm during the day, but the climate is so amazing in La Jolla that fans work well and at night things cool off beautifully. It is on a super charming, family-friendly street as well, and walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, and the beach! We would definitely come back!!
