“This is a must stay place!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
I took my family this past spring break. This was the perfect vacation home. Located a few miles from La Jolla beach, we had the ability to hang out from the house and still overlook La Jolla. The BBQ grill and outdoor seating was great. We ended up spending a lot of time swimming in the heated pool and being outdoors.In terms of location, the house is in a convenient location. The house overlooked La Jolla and a quick drive to downtown or the beach. Also, it was very quick to get in and out to downtown San Diego.

We vacationed with another family. This house was perfect for the 7 guests – allowing us each to have our own space. The service was outstanding as the owner checked was available within minutes for any questions or concerns we had. We all enjoyed the great La Jolla beaches and the many things to do in San Diego with teenage kids. The dads loved the kitchen and grill, the kids loved the pool and the moms loved the hot tub! We would definitely return to La Jolla and have recommended this home to friends who are traveling to La Jolla for a golf getaway.
“Couldn’t picked a better location/owner”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 for a stay in February 2014
My Husband and I had our wedding here in February of 2014. We picked the only weekend in February that it rained. Not only was the home owner available to help come up with a back up plan for the ceremony, she was actively involved in helping my party rental company tent the area for the ceremony. The grounds are breath taking and very well taken care of. We were a little disappointed that we had to tent the grounds in order to keep our guests dry, however the view and home were still perfect for our wedding. The home owner allowed us to rearrange furniture and hold the reception indoors. She was very accommodating and always available for help. I could not have picked a better home and having her was just an added bonus. The house is absolutely gorgeous. It is clean, modern and fully equipped. The fridge and freezer have enough space to hold plenty of food for multiple families for weeks. The bedrooms are spacious and there are plenty of extra blow up beds and blankets for added guests. We had about 8 people sleeping at the house and everyone had plenty of room and there was no problem showering/getting ready at the same time. My only complaint is that we did not stay there long enough.

We had an amazing stay at this luxury home on a cliff in La Jolla San Diego! We stayed here over New Years with my wife’s entire extended family and there was plenty of room for all of us (4 couples, two infants, and a dog). We were also totally blown away at the amenities that the home had to offer: a lap pool, hot tub, an entire workout gym, multiple outdoor seating areas with heat lamps, a fireplace, and who could forget the chef’s dream kitchen! Jennifer is an amazing hostess and she is very hospitable and accessible as she lives next door. If you are considering staying here, do it – you won’t be disappointed. :)Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Absolutely!

Our family just completed a week’s stay at this gorgeous home. This place has every amenity imaginable. The kitchen is open and has everything you might need. Even in January we enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. It is very centrally located, and easily accessible to Sea World, Safari Park, the Zoo, and the marina for whale watching. La Jolla is only a couple of miles away with the beaches, seals, restaurants of every kind, and shopping. Would highly recommend, and wish I’d had another week there!!
“Great Home, Awesome Views, Amazing Owners”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
I’ll start by saying this is the best experience I’ve ever had renting a vacation home. My experience started 1 day before I rented this home, when I needed something quick, and I reached out to Jennifer, the owner of the home. I had unfortunately been misled on another home that I had planned to rent and the owner of that home told me to take my business elsewhere (48 hours before my check in). Sometimes things work out for the better. In this case, they worked out great.I spoke with Jennifer one day before I needed the home for myself and 8 guests. She was so nice and understanding of my emergency and needing to rent their home right away. She and her husband Charles quickly had the entire home cleaned that day. I went and visited the home later that day and met Jennifer and Charles. Charles gave me a very thorough tour of the home and showed where everything was and how everything worked. I was very fortunate in that the owners lived next door, so I was able to meet them, and they offered to help me at any time during my stay there. This is a huge value to renting this home that I don’t think you can put a price tag on. Charles even brought over his Vita-mix as I told him we liked to make smoothies. To the home itself – it’s incredible in every way. The views outside of the ocean are drop dead gorgeous. We used the heated pool, grill and spa plenty of times. Inside, the house has everything you need – comfortable and spacious bedrooms, everything you can possibly want or need in the kitchen, and an awesome sound system so you can hear music or the TV all around the house. It was a spacious house and we never felt crowded. We had 9 people and the owners even blew up an air mattress for us and put it in the office as a 5th bedroom which worked well. The location was great, too…less than 2 miles from downtown La Jolla, the Cove and 3 miles from Windansea Beach. Our stay was perfect and I highly recommend this place as a vacation rental.

“Great family accommodation in La Jolla”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
We have spent holidays in us for the past 7 years and spent time in this fantastic home on our family holiday in august 2013. It is a great house in a great location – one of the best houses we have rented The house has been tastefully remodelled and decorated and comes with every conceivable extra. Everything was in very good condition and well looked-after. The outdoor area provided fabulous views over La Jolla and the pool and BBQ meant that we ended up spending most of our time outdoors.The gym is well equipped. In terms of location, the house is very close to local amenities and is a very short drive to the beach. Access to downtown San Diego is very easy. Jennifer was a very welcoming host – without being intrusive at all. She we even kind enough to arrange groceries for our arrival. Overall, highly recommended. The pictures don’t even do it justice!

What an incredible experience. From the minute we walked in the door and saw the incredibly beautiful home we knew we were going to have a wonderful time. The pictures don’t give you the full experience of the beauty of the home. We had several generations of family in the home and fit comfortably and Jennifer even provided us with some top of the line blow up beds for any over flow we might have. Jennifer was most gracious. She provided anything you could possibly need and was immediately available for any problem that might incur. Every amenity was provided. We had big family meals in the large kitchen and family room, plenty of time in the pool and relaxing on the patio overlooking the incredible view of the ocean. Everyone in our group from the youngest to the oldest said this was the best home and vacation experience we have ever had in La Jolla and we have visited La Jolla since the early 70’s. The location is perfect away from the noise and crowds but a short distance from the beach and Village. I wish everyone could experience the happiness, fun and comforts we enjoyed. Thank you Jennifer for letting us experience a wonderful vacation in your home. We look forward to our next vacation there as it was a unanimous vote from all that we would love to come back! Fantastic experience!

“Wonderful Vacation Home”

This home is absolutely beautiful! The photos do not do it justice. It is decorated so tastefully, making it feel more like a home than a rental. Our family(made up mostly of children) had a wonderful time. The home is located minutes away from the beach and the pool offers a perfect alternative when you just want to stay in. There is just about every amenity you need, from shampoo/conditioner to laundry detergent and baby wipes. Definitely the most stocked home we’ve rented thus far. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.

I don’t know how many times I’ve re-written & erased my review because I just cannot find the right words to describe how gorgeous this home is & how much of an amazing time my family & I had in this lovely La Jolla Resort style home. We hosted our daughters First birthday party here & this home had everything you could think of to make our daughters first birthday a great & memorable day, from stuff we needed in the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, outdoors, pool, entertainment systems, anything you could think of, they had it. Our family and friends had such a great time there even they didn’t want to leave. After having an event it’s always a great feeling to just sit back and relax and I am very glad we were able to do that in this home.The owners Jennifer & Charles are wonderful & great people. When we needed help/ had questions they were on top of it. They lived next door which made it even better. When something at the house needed to be fixed they were there and did not leave until the the problem was fixed. There was a total of 11 of us who stayed there and the house was still too big for us. We will definately be coming back. Anyone who rents this lovely home will not be disappointed.

The house was absolutely beautiful. Had everything we could possibly need. We had 10 people most of the time (5 families, plenty of room for privacy for all). We were there to attend a wedding and vacation for a few days. Loved the pool and hot tub. Wished we had a few more days just to relax in this beautiful home. Jenn was so helpful with suggesting resturants and site seeing. Great person to work with. I would highly recommend this house… you will not be disappointed.

I rented this property to host my parents 30th wedding anniversary party. It is an immaculate property totally equipped for a nice upscale gathering, no matter the season given the heated pool, fire pit and outside heaters. It was very easy to cook in the gourmet kitchen, which was fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes and appliances, even a Vitamix! We enjoyed watching the sunset over the ocean from inside and in the backyard. Plus, the owners were very accommodating and helpful both before and during our stay. Everyone in attendance was impressed and most importantly, my parents were happy. 🙂

As amazing as the place looks in pictures, and as nice as Jenn and Charles seem in the reviews, you’ll still be blown away by this experience. 4 Colleagues and I stayed here during a conference, and hosted a dinner party at the house. The house was equipped with every single thing that anyone could ever need. And the view was absolutely stunning. We ate outside on one of the 3 deck areas, with the wall of the living room wide open, and the grand fireplace burning. We piped music throughout the property for ambiance, and lit the lampposts for atmosphere. I really can’t even describe how amazing and convenient this experience was. We all agreed to look for reasons to return to La Jolla to stay here again.

I organized a group offsite for my team and decided to rent this house for some of our team members to stay in from out of town. Not only was the house amazing but the owners are so great! The house had everything from towels for swimming, everything you would possibly need for cooking, a gym, a bbq, wifi, everything! I would recommend this house to anyone, plenty of space, beautiful location in La Jolla, and you can not bet the ocean view. Thanks Jenn for the great experience.

I sadly had to take my wife and two sons to San Diego for a family emergency instead of on spring break. So I decided to try to make the best of it. While I knew I’d be in the hospital dealing with stuff for hours, I wanted to make sure my family had a great place to be…not just cooped up in a hotel. This house was just the ticket. It’s was awesome. We had never rented a home before, usually we stay in connecting rooms at nice hotels. But I wanted something close to the hospital, and considering my childrens perpetual need for snacks, movies and playing around…a house, with a pool made a lot of sense. I was skeptical at first, but I’m really glad I went this route. The house is very, very nice. The owners live right next door, and were easily reached via text, email, phone etc for any little questions. Always helpful too…such sweet, mellow folks. In fact, Jenn and Charles waited up for us and were so incredibly hospitable, they did lots of little things that made the whole experience smooth and peaceful.The house is beautiful. It’s actually a lot nicer than the pictures let on. My favorite element was kicking back in front of the fire with a nice glass of wine and looking out at the sunset after swimming around with my kids in the late afternoon. Simple…bliss. I’m certain that we’ll be coming back to visit grandpa soon, and when we do, I’m definitely going to call Jenn agin.
“Gorgeous Ocean-view Home with Easy access to La Jolla and Downtown”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2012
I was overjoyed by the openness and comfortable layout of the house. When I first walked in, the thing that caught my eye was the floor to ceiling windows that showed out to the back patio with a clear view of the Ocean and the surrounding hills. Wow! The lap-pool was very warm and perfect for night swimming. My favorite part was probably the kitchen; great for heavy-duty cooking and for large groups of people or parties with the bar stools facing the kitchen and two huge fridges. It’s perfect for big family get togethers; there are plenty of bedrooms and since the house is all on one floor it’s easy access for elderly family members or anyone who has a hard time getting around. The TV with surround sound was great for kids watching a movie or for playing music at a party. La Jolla Shores is just down the street (not a bad run if you decide to do that too!) and everything from grocery stores to gasoline to downtown San Diego is accessible within a few miles. Super close to Sea World too which is great for kids. So glad I decided to stay there instead of a hotel! Made the experience so much more convenient and so much homier. The neighborhood is also dead quiet and very safe. Still wish I could steal their kitchen and bring it home with me.

My husband and I vacationed to this lovely property in the fall and had the time of our lives. Not only is this house absolutely gorgeous but the ocean view encompassing then entire back of the house is to die for. We spent many a night sipping wine on the back deck watching the breathtaking sunsets you can only see in California. The jacuzzi was wonderful on the chilly nights and the warm salt water pool was perfectly relaxing day or night. Indoors, this house felt like a home away from home. My husband loved the surround sound system that allowed him to play music throughout the house. The comfortable master suite with a fireplace, unbelievable spa shower, and the to die for kitchen were just a few of my favorites in this home. The kitchen is a chefs dream if you love to cook . We loved this home so much that next year we are going to bring the whole family! I would highly recommend this property to anyone!

Reviewed March 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2012
This house, it’s view from perched on a hill and proximity to downtown La Jolla and the beach is amazing in every way. Every detail of the house permeates with that easy sort of California style luxury. Wake up to a full view of the Pacific from the entire side of the home. You can actually open up the entire side of the house to the pool and jacuzzi that sits on a hill overlooking La Jolla shores. I love to cook and the kitchen is a dream, with every type of amenity you can imagine, and open to the living room, dining, and fireplace. I came with my family, and we could be down at the beach in about seven minutes to the surf school, restaurants or just hang out at the house in the spa bathtub which also has a view of the ocean. Downtown La Jolla with great shopping, yoga, and art is right down the road less than ten minutes. I cannot wait until my next visit.
