Property description

BEACH LOCATION IS EVERTHING PLUS this Adorable HISTORIC Charming, 3bed 2bath House with Optional by Request Guest Granny Flat studio cottage next door books through can add as a ( 4th bedroom optional studio extra price must ask and pay for extra) Please ask when booking if you want to add cottage.We are walking distance to the beach and it gets rainy in the winter and damp with clouds one day and sunny the next so if you are not good with your joints or arthritis in winter this can be damp. We have had the house painted and re dry walled, new kitchen with granite, bathroom two new marble stone shower and vanity, bathroom two is historic claws foot tub from 1930 and is not a shower but has a showered so you can bathe and use as an addition but not designed for showers but keeping in one with historic value, the tub must stay and keeps hot baths longer than new tubs as its metal with porcelain. If you dont care for the charm and nuances of a historic home as some things are not changeable, but others are we have provided house polices and condition of the property to be agreed upon before your stay so you know what to expect, it is charming but it is the original adobe structure which can lend to great things but also things we are historically keeping like an outdoor fireplace that is mortar brick and fun to look at but cant take raging fires. Therefore we have a wood stove fireplace insert inside in the historic mantle place for winter fires to fight damp or fog in La Jolla winters once in a while we are like san francisco cold one day and the next summer! even in January. Both house and cottage have wood stoves for the purpose of extra heating, the big house has central heat and the wood stove and the cottage has wood stove and big room heaters making it more than hot if desired. The kitchen in both is granite and the house has oak cabinets and both have travertine stone or slate kitchen floors which are new and the house has original oak floors covered by big rattan mats in the dining room and living room that look nice but we like to have folks go easy with shoes to keep the original flooring intact, the bedrooms have new bamboo wood floors and thick plush new carpet in the third sleeping bedroom. We have newer beach furniture, bahama styles and leather couch all new furnishings not old, just the house is historic built in 1926. We have lovingly pulled this house out of disrepair bought in 1996, Stucco the whole house again, planted all new plants tropical that have grown quite large and put in a lawn, and re did the kitchen and bathrooms and the floors to the studs, We go over all this because people need to know it has some nuances and is not a track home. On occasion it will smell musty like an old home but is not moldy as we treat the home and have had it checked and replaced everything, The must is from if the house is closed up for a few days and it rains , you just open up the french doors a few minutes and we have air filters and essential oils to make it a nice treatment for myself, and friends as I have allergies so I am very picky about keeping it so its not an issue for me. If you are very sensitive you may want to not go historic, but 9 out of 10 people find no issue with the smell of a historic stucco home, if there is one at times, its the rain and beach fog . We have our staff bleach all tile and and linens and towels. We have a pest control inside that uses natural rosemary and lavender so we dont have toxins for kids or pets or Adults for that matter. Outside we have lots of plants and are near the park and the mountain hillside so many get pests but we take good care to have ongoing service. The patio area with the brick fireplace has outdoor patio lights for ambiance and an attached deck with a $1500 bullet proof heavy duty stainless steel webber grill with propane that can run out before we know it so guests are responsilbe on a rare occasion it runs out while you are there and we ask you clean the grill just as you would the stove after use. We also supplies a mini webber bbq for quick bbq on both house and cottage if you rent both, that makes three bbq, two fireplaces inside , one outside and two kitchens! We have garden beds and a green house and may have tons of plants or a few planters that have orchids waiting to bloom so dont mind the extra pots its part of ongoing ecological garden and tropical plant area we are cultivating 20 years now. There is an outdoor couch and outdoor dining table area. The Larger House has gated yard, and Adobe wall between Guest cottage Private with plants/garden courtyard both indoor outdoor dining tables, decks and bbqs. Best for pets at larger yard but can have at guest house also. Private 4 foot adobe wall between each other with access gate , studio farther from house than neighbors are to each other, with separate walls and yards, next door, all in the heart of the village of La Jolla. The house can sleep 6 to 10 and the cottage 2 to 4/5 for a total of 15 max by approval of activity level. Rent separate or together. This is a community with perfect year-round weather averaging 70 to 75 degrees. FYI. No laundry available on site.

On our famous Bonair Street village home (bonair means clean air) walk along 1500 feet down our street to the main entrance to the world-famous 'wind-n-sea' beach. 11 houses to spectacular shops, local spa and gym, local restaurants and dining, and walking and bicycling certified scenic trails. Within several houses is a community park, Olympic-size swimming pool for public use at coogan website at cfaquatics. Five houses east join the tropical scenic walking trails that go all the way through La Jolla, in addition to bicycling and pet walking. If you head north from our house you can walk .5 mile in several minutes, or drive in just a minute to the main downtown cove village area for all the hustle and bustle of art galleries, easy and high end restaurants, entertaining art galleries, comedy store and sightseeing at stunning ocean caves at the Huge ocean park and view of the cove and the seals. Our place is located in the village on a more serene area than downtown, but we are in the village, closest to the wind n sea beach for beach and surf lovers. It is good for families and children, yet accessible to all major amenities in minutes walks all directions, the beauty of being in village living.

House and cottage are both light, bright, and airy with skylight, French doors, and many windows. Wood-burning fire stove and large patio deck for entertaining and barbecue with tropical serene yard. Dining room, kitchen, living room, and front and back patio.

Walking distance to all, just stroll down the street to world-famous Wind n Sea white-sand beach, one of the most beautiful along the California coast, with surfing and contests, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and sailing rentals at Mission Bay. Restaurants, and The Cove, seal watching, exotic cliffs and channel swimming to La Jolla Shores within minutes. Scenic walking trail right out the door. One block to La Jolla High School's Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool and playhouse theater.

Scripps Aquarium in La Jolla, La Shores, Art Museum and Theater, classes in the creative arts at the Atheneum, Yoga, Tai Chi, and various health therapies, world class spa treatments. San Diego Zoo, wild outdoor animal park, botanical gardens, Balboa Park and museum, street fairs, naval tours, world-famous Coronado Hotel and stunning over-the-ocean bridge.

Sea World within driving minutes and an in city hiking park that is the largest in the US, and so many more amenities with year-round weather... while less than an hour from Mexico with shopping deals and artifacts that are incredibly affordable.
We provide 4 to 5 star overall reviews over 15 years an occasional not so good review if someone was not prepared that it is historic or smaller than a regular house but very well layed out in that the house at 1500 sq feet and the covered patio adds another 500 sq feet making it much larger and the patio has french doors that open up to the covered patio making it california indoor outdoor living . There is a deck attached to the original patio that is new deck wood and has dining tables and chairs. Then there is a small but nice yard that is rare even this size at the beach, most houses have none or have more units , we are the second block to beach by the park and we have a few houses with yards, not many but we are one of them. So if you are going to find it not large enough remember there really are really no yards much at all.
We have an orange tree that is very sweet but on occasion has so many oranges they fall to the ground before our bi monthly gardners some by so let us know if they pile up or eat them if they are perfect to eat. We do have bi mostly gardener rather than weekly because folks like minimal intrusions but on occasion because we are pet friendly our maids do not see every pet unusual accident on a rare occasion but its part of being pet friendly and we do our beset and ask you to monitor your pets and walk them for pet patrol since its hard to find and maintain a yard with many guests if each guest doesnt pick up after their pets so make it nice for the next guest please and pick up or take them out is our requirement when possible to keep more asepsis. We do have new toilets but everyone in La Jolla has 1920s plumbing, we have replaced showers , sinks and toilets are newer except the tub. In our antique bathroom the toilet is good but on occasion can rock very slightly and then it doesnt do it again but there is nothing wrong with it. and it is completely aseptic , we have maids so if something seems missed please call us however we do not give refunds if a maid missed something we rather ask you call us to handle it since we are a real estate rental we have many moving parts. Thanks!

Owner info

Seasons Vacation Retreats LLC

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We bought this property to be in the Jewel of La Jolla, wind n sea beach barber tract homes so my husband could walk barefoot to the beach with surfboard in hand. We vacation rental it so we can enjoy it. WE are professional Retreat Teachers in the Healing Arts, owning 6 peaceful retreat rentals at spots we love. Liza's private practice is in psychology couseling and Naturopathic nutrition and am also a Dental Hygienist. Mike is A world class Yoga teacher. Our passion is nature and homes, design and architecture. We love to make our homes available for others to enjoy and take very good care of them, with caretakers available to meet the needs of our homes, as well as being hands one ourselves, at getting new furnishings, planting tropicals and overseeing the cleanliness, bookings and helping our vacationers with their reservations. Come see us at our VRBO in La Jolla, CA, Hawaii and Yosemite. Liza and Mike

Why the Owner Chose Beach Barber Tract, San Diego, CA, USA:
La Jolla was where we both wanted to live our whole lives. I had post cards in my office in colorado when I was 22, promising that one day I would live there. When first married we saved up enough money to buy a home by our most loved beach, Wind N Sea also voted top ten beaches in the world and walk to it by foot along with the village atmosphere of dining, shops, parks, scenic trails and perfect weather. We now can return again and again to our property while still enjoying our other beach home, hawaii or yosemite. Our dream come true to have beach, moutains and tropical areas. We hope to retire in the village, wind n sea beach home and in the meantime get joy out of sharing it with other vacationers. come see the beauty of walking to all at the JEWEL our La Jolla Wind n Sea Beach home and cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everthing you can can want on vacation and never need a car. Walk to Top Ten beaches in the world wind n Sea, as well as shops and restaurants, spa and gym 11 houses away, but be in a quite tropical neighborhood with a yard where they are hard to come by. Walk 3 houses to La Jolla scenic trail and park, the beach 1500 feet from our door is enjoyable walkable. Or head north 10 minutes walk to the downtown entertainment of fine restaurants, art galleries and the world famous cove. The olympic community is only 5 houses away and our year round temperature average is 66 to 72 degrees, warming up in summer to the mid 70s. maybe peaking at low 80's. Enjoy all that the JEWEL of La Jolla has to offer being in the heart of the village at our Wind N Sea Beach house and Optional cottage next door.
