About Leslie

I have lived in San Diego for almost 30 years. My Bird Rock cottage is my sanctuary. I love being able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. And, of course, walking down to enjoy the sunsets at Calumet Park with my dogs.

Leslie purchased this cottage in 2007

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is just one block from Bird Rock's main shopping, dining, and commercial center. Just 2 more short blocks to the lovely ocean of La Jolla. A short drive, or Uber away, is the Downtown Village of La Jolla with world-class dining and shopping.

Good location. Too small of a house for family of 4.

  • 3 of 5


The house is cute and fully stocked. Perfect location. Quiet neighborhood.


No a/c

1 bathroom was not sufficient for a family of 4

While we were there we had a huge problem with "loud vibrating pipes" every time the water was turned on, toilet was flushed, washing machine or dishwasher was used or shower used. The worst part was that the vibrating pipes (which sounded like a machine gun going off) were loudest at 5:15AM when the drip system turned on. It woke us up every morning. We reported the problem to the home owner and she responded by saying that she never had the problem before and would try to get a plumber out.

Ultimately since it was terribly annoying my handy husband figures out how to fix the problem. Someone had left the water running outside while the hose nozzle was off. I'm glad he figured it out but that wasn't OUR problem to figure out.

If it hadn't been an easy fix I'm pretty positive we would have had to just deal with it for the whole vacation given the response from owner.

Safe, cozy, and adorable!

  • 5 of 5

Our host always responded to my silly questions with speedy and friendly answers while our home away from home was cozy and safe for my young traveling companions (children). It was priceless to be able to walk in an adorable neighborhood - one block to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and yummy local restaurants while only 3 blocks to the ocean! Local flavor without the rush rush of tourists and truly feeling like we were "home" in this clean, spacious two bedroom with two kiddos! The kitchen was inviting with its new appliances and the front porch was my heavenly perch to relax and enjoy the slow paced lifestyle of Bird Rock. Perfect for a mommy with little time for herself. Ahhhh...a true holiday.

Comfortable cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at Leslie's cottage in Bird Rock. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities one could need.

All the furnishings, bedding, and the kitchen items are top notch.

It is close to everything, yet in a very quiet and laid back neighborhood.

The owner was very attentive to anything we needed. Thanks Leslie!

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely lovely and well appointed home which is perfectly situated just steps from the shops of the quaint neighbourhood of Bird Rock. It is wonderfully comfortable and lots of little details have been considered. The front patio is the perfect place to sit and relax! There is plenty of available street parking right out front. We loved our stay and highly recommend this beautiful property.

Very nice little cottage home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place in a very quiet neighborhood. Love all the decor & instructions were easy. Walking distance to coffee shops, Starbucks, restaurants. Although there's no beach access from the home, it's only a few miles to drive to different parts of La Jolla. Only minus 1 star for no A/C for this hot weekend. We didn't really stay at the house that much but can tell it was unbearable heat on our 1st evening. Cool down by bedtime. Maybe we didn't know how to use the temp?? Overall, great place to stay for small family!
