Another wonderful stay
We had another wonderful stay at La Jolla Shores, and it was even better than the first time. The house fit our needs perfectly, and our 20-month-old grandson loved the playground and the beach which were just three blocks away. It is a beautiful property and Max is a great host!
Great Location for our Family
We came to La Jolla Shores for a family wedding. We were 5 adults and 1 toddler from Florida and 2 adults with another toddler from Pasadena, California. The home was set up just like we wanted. 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. So getting ready for the Rehearsal dinner and the Wedding/Reception was easy for everyone.
The road in front of the house is fairly busy. The house was not easy to find at night when we arrived. We ended up parking off the street and walking up different driveways until we found the house. There is no number on the street that can be seen at night. Also the house number is 8311 and the driveway is between 8319 and 8317, go figure, it was confusing.
We had a good time in the home. Max was very responsive to our requests. He had a HVAC guy come the day after check-in to make the heat work, needed a new thermostat.
The morning before our check out the smoke detector started chirping at 4:00am right over our heads so we had to move to a different bedroom. It was a good thing that the Pasadena couple had departed the day before.
The house came with lots of toddler friendly things like a pack-n-play, stroller and a nice wagon to cart the toddlers to the beach playground area only 3 blocks away.
After the remodel we will gladly stay here again for the next nephew's wedding in a year.
This house was fantastic for a reunion of old friends. Tough to find a place with King and Queen beds as well as separate baths, but this house worked perfectly. Completely walkable to La Jolla Shores restaurants and kayaking. Outdoor patio and fire pit are ideal as well. Easy three-minute drive into La Jolla.
Owner was super responsive with questions. Would highly recommend this beautiful home,
My family has stayed in many vacation rentals and we all agreed that this was the best one ever: comfortable and homey, nicely decorated, awesome windows, great patio and plenty of space for each individual to get away for some quiet time. We loved the fact that each bedroom had it's own bath and comfortable, king size beds with quality linens. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with every thing you would need to cook a family meal as well as quality dishes, flatware and serving platters and bowls. The yard is spacious and well maintained and only a short walk to the beach. Awesome home! We were sad to leave.
Great Location and Host
Location of the house was great, walking distance from the beach, very close to other places of interest and also groceries. Max is a great host and responded quickly for almost all of the questions and even stopped by to drop the paper towels while we were there.
Couple of things I felt could be improved
1. Better directions to find the house. The house is kind of hidden so it took us a long time to figure out where it was
2. The house needed cleaning overall. There was towels in the dryer, the backyard wasnt usable at all which sucked for us..... as it had dust, leaves and bugs all over the furniture outside. The toilets had toiletries from last visit. Just a tad bit of upkeep can really make this a great stay.
Great location, perfect for our family.
Location was awesome, three blocks from a great family beach. Beach chairs and the rest of
The beach gear needed for the day. Spent a lot of time enjoying the back patio. An outdoor shower was an added bonus. Our family of six adults and two kids had no complaints or issues. Max was prompt in all communication. The biggest complaint was the shortage of face towels, but I think we just use to many in general.
