About The Owner


Guestbook comments from the owner

May 2, 2013

Dear Cliff:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. As you know from our conversations and meeting us, my wife is a quadriplegic as a result of an accident almost 4 years ago. Since that time, we have spent a large amount of time travelling on vacation and business throughout the country and internationally.

Prior to staying at your home in April this year, we always stayed in hotels that were able to provide for our special needs. However, this year we decided to bring together some of my wife's family that resides in California and wanted to stay in a private home if we could find one that could accommodate us.

I searched all over for the "right" house and then came across your home. At first it seemed too good to be true. You may remember we had many discussions regarding your home as I wanted it to be perfect for our trip. Well, Cliff, it was.

As you may remember we had some concerns about whether we could stay in the master bedroom or not, because of a two inch lip leading into the shower. Well, there was no problem.

We also thought there might be a problem in getting onto the three oceanfront decks. You built a portable wooden ramp that allowed my wife and her 350-pound wheelchair to go on the decks whenever she wanted.

Cliff, I have given considerable thought as to whether there is anything that could be done to your home to make it better for accessibility. The short answer is - no.

Your home is wonderfully built to accommodate virtually everyone in an excellent manner. It worked for us and I am certain it can work for anyone.

We look forward to renting your home again next year - this time for a longer period.

Great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 9 enjoyed a wonderful week at the house during Christmas. The house was fully equipped, the beach terrific (a 2-minute walk). We grilled and ate meals outside on the deck (in December!), listened to the sounds of the waves, loved the sunset views, and were able to walk into town.

We had three generations together, and this was my first experience with an online rental. There were a few minor issues with the house, but the owner, Cliff, responded quickly to address them.

The reason for 4 stars: there are a lot of steps in the house, so it was challenging to keep our young walkers (15 months and 20 months) safe and away from open stairways. But, overall, we were very happy with the house and didn't want to leave.

We had the most wonderful time with our family. The beach access was amazing and we could even watch the kids play from the balcony! The house had everything we needed and Cliff was very helpful!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time here with our two kids. The beach is of course a huge attraction, and offers sightseeing (boats, divers, seals, etc.) from the deck in addition to all the obvious uses. The house is spacious and comfortable and close to everything.

Absolutely wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a weeks stay at this home. It was simply beautiful! Nothing compares to the location and the view from the balconies. Just a few steps to the beach right off the balcony. We're walkers - walked to town several times. Also walked along the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed getting up very early with a cup of coffee to watch the fishermen, the surfers and ESPECIALLY the dogs in their glory running the beach. And during the day the beach was never crowded. The sunsets over a bottle a wine were wonderful before a night at one of the many fabulous restaurants in downtown La Jolla.

The house was extremely roomy. The kitchen was so surprisingly equipped that nothing other than food needed to be purchased for meal prep. Each bedroom/bath was also fully equipped with all the essentials. The home was very clean and organized. All necessary information regarding appliances, internet, etc. was at our fingertips.

Lastly, many thanks to you, Cliff, for your kindness and consideration. Wish we could have met your wife. Enjoy the wine and remember, if you ever find yourselves in Chicago...look us up!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 enjoyed a fabulous week at this home on the beach. The house had all the amenities we could want including beach toys and chairs. With each of the kids having their own bedroom and en suite bath, there was plenty of room for us to spread out. When we wanted time together, we had the media room with its TV and board games and the multiple decks to choose from - not to mention the beautiful expanse of beach. The owner was very attentive to our needs. He was available and very responsive to our requests.

The home is situated within walking distance to coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants and more. The home is also fully furnished with all kitchen necessities so that we were able to enjoy several of our meals in the home. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in a well situated beachfront home.

Car: recommended

The neighborhood is almost all multi-million dollar single family homes. Mitt Romney's La Jolla home is about 8 doors south. It's a five minute walk to the neighborhood Ferrari and Lamborghini dealerships. Yet there are restaurants, shops, and art galleries everywhere to fit most budgets and tastes. The people are friendly, there's lots to do, and beautiful places to do it. Next door is the beautiful White Sands retirement home (
