About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Nestled above a retail space in the quaint La Jolla Shores neighborhood, this upstairs unit is a two minute walk from San Diego's most beautiful and family friendly beaches, La Jolla Shores.

The unit is upstairs from Hike Bike Kayak Adventures, who generously includes free equipment rentals for guests of this unit including bikes, kayaks, boogie boards, snorkels, foam surf boards, paddle boards and wetsuits. They also include 25% off guided tours for guests of this unit.

The unit is a one bed, one bath with sleeper couch. Perfect for a couple or young family.

La Jolla Shores is a mile long pristine beach and the neighborhood is much quieter, easier to park, and more relaxing than La Jolla Village. However, La Jolla Village and La Jolla Cove are still a five minute car ride, fifteen minute bike ride (for adults), or twenty minute walk. While La Jolla Shores has such famous restaurants as Piatti's, Osteria Romantica, and the five-star Marine Room, the shopping, restaurants, bars, and art galleries are still very accessible from this location.

From La Jolla Shores, depending on the season, you can relax on the beach in the sun, kayak the La Jolla Sea Caves, snorkel with the famous (and completely harmless) leopard sharks, kayak with gray whales, surf gentle waves, boogie board and bike around the beautiful coast. All with equipment or instruction from Hike Bike Kayak Adventures.

Cozy beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent two nights in La Jolla shores in this adorable apartment with our kids. Nicely furnished, cozy beach decor, great location walkable to beach and good restaurants. Would definitely return! Borrowed a surfboard one afternoon. Sadly no time to kayak or paddle board but hope to do so next time.

Once in 8 years...

  • 5 of 5

We were told that once in every 8 years it pours in San Diego. Well, disputed the rain, it didn’t stop us from enjoying the beautiful town, taking walks along the shore and staying in this charming home. We will surely return. Thank you Sharon for supplying us with a blow up mattresss so I could give my mom the bed and teenage boy the couch. It was very comfy!

It's okay

  • 4 of 5

Location is great and having use of kayaks makes the apartment worth it. Price is a little high but I guess it's about the location. We did have to constantly air it out because of a very musty smell. The apartment is clean and the deck is over the ally and doesn't get much sun. I would stay again asssuming the musty smell is corrected.

Beautiful Beach House walking distance from everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, husband, 3 y/old son and I took a little New Year “stay-cation” here visiting from San Diego and LOVED it. The house was the perfect size for us and so homey :) Your stay also includes free rentals at their Hike, Bike, Kayak shop- how awesome is that?

We had dinner at Sushi Mori right across the street the first night (on NYE) which was delicious. New Years morning we grabbed some coffee and delicious pastries at Brick & Bell right infront of the house. We walked along the beach and took my son to the huge playground right on the beach which he loved. We were feeling energetic and decided to walk to Girard Avenue (3 miles round trip) Only a 7 minute drive but we wanted to get some exercise.

My mom and I shopped for cute clothes and went to Geppetto’s Toy Shop. That night we got pizza from House of Pizza which was delicious. The next day we took advantage of being right by the ocean and walked the beautiful beach again. We had a fabulous time and it felt like we were gone for a week. We look forward to renting this house again in the summer!

Perfect location. 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants. 30 seconds to the coffee shop. Very accommodating with getting us set up with bikes, paddle boards, and snorkeling equipment (included with accommodations). Comfortable space for 3 adults with queen bed and a pull out sofa. Definitely consider another visit, it was just too easy making our vacation very relaxing!!
