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. 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)

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

Spacious Mid-Century Modern home just a short walk from the beach and excellent dining.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! Everything one could want with very responsive hosts. The courtyards are beautiful, the bedrooms are large, the kitchen well supplied, and the location is within 2 minutes of the beach and great dining, 20-30 minutes from the SD Zoo, 90 minutes from Disneyland.

A Wonderful Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

The online photos of this house do not do it justice. It is more beautiful, spacious, elegant, and comfortable than photos can ever show. Several times a day we all commented on what a great house it is. All the beds are very comfortable and charming. We have been in 4 or 5 VRBO houses in the past, and none of them had kitchens as fully equipped as this one. Best of all was the great room, in which we were able to seat 11 people at one long table. Fantastic. Belinda and Rick are lovely hosts, and they responded right away when we needed some help to get the big outside grill going.

If we ever go to La Jolla again, we know where we will stay! Not only is the house fabulous, it is in walking distance of a charming street full of shops and restaurants. And that street ends up at the edge of the beach

--a very easy walk. Wow! Truly a great experience.

Great place to relax and enjoy La Jolla/San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

La Jolla Shores Beach House is in a wonderful location for walking to the ocean as well so many lovely restaurants and shops. It is also a short drive to the Village of La Jolla, the center of shopping, eating and many personal services. The house is a large 5 bedroom home with a newly remodeled kitchen, 2 dining areas, family room and a couple private courtyards for barbequing and relaxing. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay, and would consider staying here again.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

I can only echo the praises of previous reviews. The house was perfect for our three-generation family get-together over the long October weekend!

Spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, outdoor space where we enjoyed meals and card games and conversation, access to a superb beach, convenient restaurants and coffee shops—everyone was happy! And we’re already talking about a repeat visit. Thanks to Belinda and Rick!
