About the property

Spacious 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath Single Level - 1/3 mi to La Jolla Shores Beach!

This 3448 sq ft single level home is close to everything! Just 1/3 mile to La Jolla Shores Beach and steps to La Jolla Shores Village. Situated on a flat lot, guests are greeted with a circular driveway with convenient off-street parking. The front gate enters to a private courtyard which includes a deck with grill and outside seating. Entering the front door you will find the Parlor/Entertainment room with a 60" flat-screen tv, wii, and games for fun entertainment. Continue through the Foyer and enter the Great Room - an open space which includes a formal dining area (seats 8) and fireplace seating area. This room features 12' ceilings and an expansive wall of tall windows. The kitchen adjoins this room and includes a breakfast dining area (seats 6) which accesses the courtyard. The kitchen is fully equipped with dining service for 12 guests, small appliances, cooking accessories and basic pantry items. You might also enjoy the 10+ restaurants down the street - we sure do! The Foyer also accesses the Hallway to Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Laundry Room:

Master Bedroom (King) and Bathroom (shower)

Bedroom 2 (King) and Bathroom (shower)

Bedroom 3 (Queen) and Bathroom (tub shower)

Bedroom 4 (Queen, Crib) shared Bathroom (tub shower)

Bedroom 5 (Twin) shared Bathroom (tub shower)

The Laundry Room leads to a Backyard Shower Porch and Path for walking to the beach. There are beach toys, boogie boards (2), surf boards (2), beach chairs, a wagon, and beach towels for you to enjoy during your stay!

This is a really great home within close walking distance to La Jolla Shores Village and Beach, and in an area of La Jolla Shores with lower density and larger lot sizes.

The location doesn't get any better than this!

About Rick and Belinda

We love the community of La Jolla Shores! Our family is involved in many of the activities this location has to offer - surfing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, bodysurfing, running, cycling and more. We have a second home in McCall, Idaho, were we spend much of our time - thus making our beautiful La Jolla home available to you!

Rick and Belinda purchased this house in 1990

Vacation Favorite

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property for five siblings and spouses, reuniting for a fun vacation in La Jolla.

The Top 10 Reasons We'll Be Returning Next Year -

1. Location, location, location - just down the street from the best beach.

2. Fantastic mattresses in EVERY room.

3. Bathrooms in each room with nice showers/towels.

4. Great windows/skylights - natural light everywhere.

5. Lots of space - high ceilings, private courtyards, stunning lighting/design elements.

6. Well-stocked, quality kitchenware with big built-in refrigerator.

7. A large beach wagon for the provided chairs, umbrellas, toys and towels.

8. Hard to beat carnitas tacos and fruit salad at Galaxy Tacos, just down the street.

9. Great TV room for watching our college football game.

10.Best kitchen for breakfast - we had planned to go to the highly rated Shorehouse Kitchen nearby, but had bacon, eggs, potatoes, toast and fruit every morning in this lovely home!

My favorite VRBO experience - thank you Rick and Belinda!

We loved it. Perfect for our yearly ladies get together. Only downside was no air conditioner and we hit a heat spell. Owners were very helpful and easy to reach.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed here. I think I said it all in my first review but once again it was the perfect house, perfect location for the six adults and four children in our group. The house is large and spacious with many areas in which to eat or congregate as well as many areas to sit by yourself and read. The area is quiet even though there are shops and restaurants just a block away. Unlike many steep California beaches, La Jolla Shores beach has a perfect beach for kids.

We loved our stay in this beautiful home! It was our 3rd year staying in the Bray's home in La Jolla Shores. We are three generations and this home has everything a family could want. It is close enough to the beach and restaurants to walk and far enough to be away from the noise of the crowds. The house is spacious and light and the furnishings are lovely and easy-care. The great room is perfect for family evenings of dinner and games. We hope to be back again next summer!

Spacious, comfortable, and can't beat the location!u

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit with my extended family. In total, we were 5 adults, 2 teenagers, and 3 little kids. First thing to point out: the location is awesome! Walking distance to the beach, a great playground, and plenty of shops and restaurants. Second thing, you always wonder when you rent a place of everyone will be comfortable - or if you will be all on top of each other. Rest assured this house was spacious enough that we were all super comfortable and had lots of room to spare! It was awesome! Third, the house was stocked with just about everything you need for a beach vacation. A wagon to transport everything, beach chairs, towels, beach toys. My only complaint about this vacation is that it wasn't longer.... we could have easily stayed another week and I am already planning our return! Thank you Belinda and Rick for being so easy to work with - and for the use of such a great place!

Sense of freedom and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Dear Belinda and Rick,

We all enjoyed our stays in your house, some of us wished to stay longer because we all felt at home. It was a perfect place and easy access to the shores, restaurants, and all amenities.

Many thanks

Cyrus, and the rest
