You're in La Jolla, with beautiful cliffs, seals, dolphin, and in an adorable little cottage 1 street from the beach. In the morning you have a beautiful view of the ocean, and breathtaking sunsets only steps from your front door. I traveled with my spouse and 2 children. Although it was a little cramped, we had enough room to come and go. The amenities were perfect, grocery store within walking distance (maybe 1 mile) or drivable for large runs. We booked this cottage through Blue Water Vacations, and they were very professional. Would recommend!
We are staying in the above property for the 2 nd time and came back as we liked the location and also the property . We are not as enamoured this year as we have been woken each morning by rubbish collectors who seem to sit outside this property and make a tremendous noise.
The other concern is a 2 inch cockroach that was also staying at the property with us plus the really bad smell of maggots in the kitchen ( I'm half expecting to find a dead body hidden somewhere ) .
Don't think we will be visiting here again
Perfect location one block from the ocean and one block from the village. Cottage is just as described and photos are an accurate representation. It was very clean, had beautiful near new towels and bed linen and a well equipped kitchen. The management company was great to deal with.
To note, it is fairly small so best suited for a couple at the most (maybe with one small child). The bathroom is off the bedroom and the toilet is off that. So anyone sleeping on the sofa bed has to go through the bedroom. Bathroom is tiny but adequate.
Also, this is the heart of the village so there is noise from people using the stairs/lanes down each side of the property, trash collection for commercial properties each morning, doof doof music noise from cars, construction from nearby renovations. At other times it was dead silent and we could hear the waves crashing on the shore.
Parking was a nightmare. If you plan on exploring the village/cove you won't need to drive. But if you're heading to wider San Diego area each day be prepared to drive around looking for a park 1-2 blocks away.
Overall we loved it and would thoroughly recommend it. We also recommend breakfast at Cody's around the corner. Don't be put off by the wait time.
Quaint beach bungalow steps away from La Jolla cove, restaurants and shopping along Prospect street. Interior interesting mix of retro and more modern amenities. Pictures are very accurate but overall space is only good for a couple. Single bathroom is tiny and no counter space but sports a steam shower/tub combo. Kitchen and outdoor grill made cooking meals easy but lack of dishwasher tempered use. Parking can be a treasure hunt but owners thoughtfully offer off site parking garage pass for summertime use. Management company very easy to work with and very responsive to maintenance requests. Perfect spot for vacationing couple without kids!
