Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

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!!

Comfortable well equipped convenient flat with bonus of free equipment rentals!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were in San Diego to visit our son at University and stayed at Sharon's lovely flat above the their rental shop. Arrival and departure was seamless and easy, the apartment was as advertised, the bed comfortable and the linens lovely. Good Wifi and TV. Short walk to the beach in the morning, next to a coffee shop and several nice eateries. My son and I used their surf boards one day with was super fun. We will definitely try to stay there again if we are back in the area.

This Place is Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay at the HBK condo. The space was immaculate and couldn't have been more perfect. Combined with the benefits of all the Hike, Bike, Kayak amenities, this truly felt like staying at a friend's guest house. .

Thanks again for everything!

The perfect beach hangout.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love this property. It is the perfect little beach hangout. Very close to La Jolla Shores (and everything else San Diego has to offer). And literally next door to great coffee shops and cafes. Yet so quiet and private. The staff at the kayak/surf shop in front are so friendly and helpful. And I love that this condo is tucked above and in back of the shop. The fact that you get to use the equipment free of charge during your stay makes this condo worth renting even if it weren't so cute. Think about how much money and hassle you save if you want to rent even one thing while you're there. And the owner, Sharon, is so kind and gracious.

I was hoping to give my husband a taste of the experience of the childhood I had, growing up in the area. This was the perfect place to do that. The only problem is that I didn't want to leave.
