It's super charming! It's very close to the beach, but just far enough away to have plenty of parking. You can walk to everything you need and the farmer's market on Sunday is amazing. The city bus stop is right around the corner so one can easily get around without a personal vehicle. You can also rent one, two, or three cottages for your family. You can walk or hop on the bus or grab an Uber to get to the seals, sea lions, la jolla shores for kayaking, etc.

Unit needs AC in all rooms, it was very uncomfortable.
I am sorry you were not 100% satsifie with Villa Tranquila. Your concerns are heard. We have an electric upgrade in the works which will allow us to offer more powerful/central cooling by Summer 2020. We've enjoyed Windansea's typical seventy-something temperatures every week this Summer except for the one you visited, so it seems you weren't one of the lucky ones and we're sorry about that.
Property was very nice and in a great location.
Charming, affordable, clean, convenient, walkable!
Villa Tranquila is cozy and comfy. The beds are very comfortable, the sheets were soft and the towels were fluffy. The decor was perfect for a beach cottage. The neighborhood is perfect- clean, friendly, and everything you need within walking distance. The hosts and their helpers were very accommodating. The hosts foster special-needs pets and we got to meet their pack of sweet doggies. We are definitely going to take advantage of the 15% discount for Luckydog Sanctuary sponsors, the next time we book . We can't wait to return to The Villas at Windansea!
Terrible Odor Throughout the cottage
We checked into the cottage at 5PM and immediately noticed an overwhelming odor as soon as we walked in. The couch had a strong musty smell like it had not been cleaned in a very long time. The bedding also had a strong musty smell as well. We tried to air the unit out for a couple hours it did no good. I actually became physically sick from being inside the unit and had to sit outside for 15 minutes.
We left the unit at 7PM and reserved a hotel room in San Diego. We immediately tried to contact the owner- Nikki to let her know that we had to vacate the premises and that we wanted a full refund. The owner refused to oblige us and now we are forced to take more aggressive action with VRBO and our financial institution to get a refund.
This unit allows dogs and we brought our 12 lb havanese. There is a notice posted on the wall warning that there are some vicious dogs on the street and to be very careful when walking your dog.
In summary, the unit was disgusting and uninhabitable and the owner was totally unwilling to accomodate our request for a refund after stating that we simply could not stay there for basic health/hygiene reasons.
NEVER RENT THIS COTTAGE
Super Dog Friendly!
We stayed four nights at Villa Tranquila with our two English Bulldogs. I appreciated Nikki allowing us to use two of her large dog crates so we didn’t have to bring ours. The house is plenty roomy for a small family. The beds are full/queen, but we knew that before we booked. It literally is a super short walk to a very nice beach and a short drive to La Jolla Cove and maybe 20 mins to Pacific and Mission Beach. We had a blast!
Thanks guys! We are glad you enjoyed the home and made good use of the doggy amenities.
