It's near Torrey Pines, the University, Scripps, and business districts, and less hectic than the nearby shopping and museum tourist districts. We were a couple plus friends on holiday. This was a peaceful 3 bedroom suite w/pool, mediterranean-ranch, walled compound. Easy to get anywhere, rentals, beach club, and dinner all a few blocks away. No steps, and no imposing neighbors. The 180 degree panorama of La Jolla Cove was cool! There’s a wall of glass in the open floor plan, filled with ocean, fog or sky. Evening light from the bay was beautiful. Different outdoor spaces to relax in, like a lovely tiled heated pool and piazza for gatherings; the grassy knolls worked for wine and lounging, and a lawn off the kitchen was gated separately and seemed good for seniors, kids, or pets. International decor throughout, a quiet palate. There was art, linens, dining sets and cookware, a fireplace, a washer/dryer.
