“Solitude and no glitz!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We just returned from a week at Redwood Hollow. It was the perfect place to use as a base to explore La Jolla. We explored the tide pools every day--they are only a block away from the cottages. The huge living room was perfectly decorated and a great place to relax when the night got chilly on the private patio. The courtyard was a great place to unwind in the early evening. The beds were soooo comfortable---and the kitchen had everything we possibly needed, even an extra corkscrew for sampling the California wines. All of the appliances are full sized, so cooking for a family would be very easy, although many restaurant are only a few blocks away--a very safe, easy stroll in the evening. Although the off-street parking is very limited, we never had a problem parking on the street--there were always plenty of spaces to park on this very quiet street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room a cottage that has been updated.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. It was so cozy and beautiful! This is not in the more touristy area but is about a block from the beach (less crowded beach too...awesome) and within walking distance of downtown La Jolla and the fancy shopping tourist area on Prospect. Melissa walked us to our cottage on Friday and we weren't bothered at all after. You are surrounded by million(s) dollar homes and condos. The only downside was that many people are curious about the cottages and grounds...so we had about 3 groups of people walk almost all the way to our front door "checking out" the beauty. They didn't realize we were sitting relaxing in the living room until they got a few yards away. We WILL stay here again. I have sent the link to a few co-workers too who now want to book cottages. For the price and location, this is a unique and awesome experience you won't get most places!

We had a lovely stay at the Cottages. The manager, Phaedra, was very accommodating to us when we decided to have our small wedding ceremony there in March. It was a lovely ceremony on the patio of the cottage in which we stayed, and our photos turned out beautiful. Also, the cottages are very comfortable, cozy, and we were very comfortable there.

We have stayed here before but it was so much nicer the most recent time we stayed. The property was much cleaner, the new owner and management is doing a great job. Pedro (the gal that runs the property) was so accommodating and made our stay all the much more enjoyable. Pedro was doing allot of running around and making improvements. We were not able to get cell service and she immediately had phones installed in all the units. if you want a quiet private get away that you can walk to restaurants, stores and art galleries, this is the perfect place.

Thank you for your wonderful response. Yes, we have made so many positive changes to the proper since July of 2013 and appreciate that you have noticed and are enjoying it. The location is amazing and the weather is unbeatable; the best in the country. We have just replaced the mattresses in 5 of the cottages and hope that you will come try them out soon. Best. . .

A friend that lives in La Jolla reccomended Redwood Hollow Cottages and we are so glad they did. The Customer Service was above and beyond. The front desk gal (can't rememember her name, she was a blonde woman). Everything was great except the website said the studio we stayed in bedrooms had a pull out sofa and the cottage we stayed in did not have one. All in all it was great, a great location, pleasent staff. My only suggestion is a more comfortable mattress and a pullout sofa.

We are currently staying in the 2 bedroom and 2 bath Ocean Ridge Cottage. The unit is excellent and the location superb. Very close to beach and lovely ocean walks. What an amazing find. It's another hidden treasure.
Very quiet area of the city.

Highly recommend!

Thank you for highly recommending us! I love the location too; on the main street that runs through downtown La Jolla yet still away from all the commotion. Walking to the beach, restaurants, and shops is always a plus when you're on vacation. Leave the driving at home when you visit our beautiful cottages.

La Jolla in the wintertime was fantastic. The weather was great and the location of this property is close to the downtown La Jolla area and the beach. The accommodations are quaint and the new owner is putting in some renovations that are sprucing up the place. The front desk woman, Fayedray (probably mispelled) was very helpful with answering our questions and stopped to help recommend some local places for great food. There was construction going on and a lot of activity but she stopped and helped us and always had a pleasant smile and demeanor. I look forward to returning here again and seeing the progress in the remodeling that is in flight. I would definitely recommend this for a place to stay within walking distance of the beach and downtown La Jolla.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. The weather during the winter season is very nice, the streets are quiet, and the ocean is as beautiful as ever. The construction has definitely spruced up Redwood Hollow and we are thrilled with the results. I'm so grateful that Phaedra was ever so helpful; you are all so wonderful.
