“Fantastic house in the heart of La Jolla - great for families!” We had a small family reunion in this house in June of this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were 7 of us, ranging in age from 10 to 79 and having 5 bedrooms on one floor was wonderful. The location in La Jolla, very close to La Jolla Village and La Jolla Cove, was very convenient. The owner, David, met us at the house on the first day to show us around and answer any questions about how things worked. He also has a notebook in the house that provides information about restaurants in the area, how to work the TV (complete with pictures of which remote is used for what), and other useful information you might need while staying in the house.
The kitchen may be the best equipped kitchen we've come across in a rental house. There wasn't a single item that we needed while we were there and couldn't find, and we did eat several meals at the house. In addition to dishes and appliances, paper towels, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, garbage bags, laundry detergent, dish detergent, toilet paper are all provided generously.
One of my favorite things about the house was the several patios from which to enjoy the perfect La Jolla weather, including one "upper deck" with a view to the ocean. That was my favorite place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. My only regret about our stay is that I didn't spend more time up there!
Most of the beds have Tempurpedic mattresses, which is another nice plus of the property, especially if you are already used to this at home!
There are 2 living areas - one with the big screen TV, and one that is more of a sitting area with a desk. When the kids were watching TV, the adults were able to gather in the sitting room if it was getting too chilly for the patio. There is also a desk in that room, so if you need to work while staying here, this room would be a great place to do it.
The house is on Torrey Pines Blvd, which gets pretty busy during the day, so be aware of that.
