Great house, location and owners!!!
We just spent a terrific month at this wonderful La Jolla house near the beach. The home was just completed in December, so everything was clean, new and looks better live than in the pictures. The owners, Karen and Jack, live near, checked in a few times and responded very quickly to our questions. The kitchen and living area were great. The rooftop patio was absolutely awesome for morning coffee, ocean view sunsets, grilling and relaxing. The beds were very comfortable and the towels and bedding were thick and soft. The kitchen was fully stocked with the pots, pans, cutlery and utensils you want as well as small appliances like a blender, toaster, sandwich grill and of course coffee maker. Fridge, range, microwave and dishwasher were all new and higher end. We also loved having the new washer and dryer – both worked great and will make any beach vacation easier. The location was perfect for us -- a block to Windansea Beach and 10 minute walk or bike ride to several other beaches or shoreline attractions. We spent parts of every day on the sand or water -- exploring tide pools near the Village, watching seals at the Cove and long walks on the beaches from Bird Rock to Mission Beach were some of our favorites. The house is close to many great restaurants, so we biked or walked to almost every meal. The furthest was a mile and a half and the closest was a few blocks. We are not fancy, but definitely appreciate good food – some highly recommended favorites are The Promiscuous Fork (a foodie institution and our favorite), Cafe Vahik, the Taco Stand, Puesto, Harry's Coffee Shop and Karl Strauss Brewing Company. While the location was wonderful, we had a rental car for a week or so to see more of San Diego. One word of advice, the garage is tight with a narrow alley and a fence behind – our minivan fit, but a mid-size car or smaller is much easier to get in and out. If you need more room, there was plenty of street parking available. The only caution we have for the house is that the bedrooms and bathrooms have louvered as opposed to solid doors. That allows sound to travel freely to the common areas and other rooms and compromises some privacy. It was not an issue for us or our guests as we are very close, but it could be troubling for some if you are traveling with others who want or need more privacy, especially if they are staying in the room across from the kitchen. We highly recommend this wonderful home and La Jolla.
