We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our drive up PCH last September. Marsha's directions were good so we found the house no problem. The front door was open so we walked in to find Marsha, who was lovely and she showed us to our room in the cottage behind the house (Wind'n'Sea, I think). The room was lovely, light and nicely furnished, and is set up to accommodate longer stays as there was space to hang a full wardrobe of clothes and a desk/study area. Although the place was very nice, we didn't spend too long around the house as our main goal was to learn to surf! 'The Cove' was a short drive away and we had surfing lessons at La Jolla Shores which was a little farther, maybe 20 minutes drive away? Marsha had great recommendations for restaurants within walking distance of the house which were just right.
I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, welcoming place to stay in La Jolla. You are staying in someone's house but as long as you are aware of that and are comfortable with that (which we were!) then it's a lovely place.
