La Jolla, San Diego, California
Recently remodeled, one bedroom, one bath single story guest cottage in the village of La Jolla. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is about 500 square feet. This cozy little cottage is walking distance to La Jolla's many scenic beaches, restaurants, shops and art galleries.

Come relax and enjoy the home decorated with local artist paintings through out. A wonderful artist retreat or couples getaway. If you are a traveling Artist we can supply art materials and easel as well as use of my art studio. Happy painting!

A short 10 min, (5 blocks) to locals favorite Marine Street and Windansea Beaches
The cottage has NEVER had pets and is smoke free.

There is off and on street parking with 2 private entrances and a private patio with a barbque. This guest cottage is located behind our home in the village and we are a...

Spent our 30th Anniversary at this great cottage. It was a very quiet, comfortable, well furnished and private retreat close to everything. Steve made us feel welcome from the beginning responding quickly to our questions before arrival and making sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful, comfortable retreat in La Jolla. We'll definitely be back. Thanks Steve.

My wife and I arrived in San Diego for our honeymoon needing a relaxing week in the worst way. We had high hopes for this vacation cottage, and it somehow exceeded them. It started at the very beginning of our visit when we noticed that "private patio" meant ALL OURS. No sharing with the main house. The lovely surprises continued all week long. Need a few kitchen utensils after shopping at La Jolla's farmers market?...

Management response:

Thanks! Hope you come back again. Steve

Stayed here with my wife as a anniversary retreat. Really enjoyed being within walking distance to the beach and being able to rent a bike and get to La Jolla Cove. Also close to "downtown" La Jolla with shops, eateries, and galleries. The cottage was cozy and had everything you could need in the kitchen. Gas fireplace was great for ambience and actual warmth in the cool evenings (it was actually overcast and misty most...

We had a wonderful experience in this rental. Steve manages with the professionalism of a hotel but feeling of a home. The Rental was even nicer than pictures show, well equipped and located. Home has a washer and dryer as well and close to many wonderful restaurants, beaches and close to attractions. Loved having windows open and sitting on patio. Highly recommend and would stay again.

The cottage is located close to some great restaurants and the beach. Short drive to other local beaches. Clean, comfortable. Parking in back was a huge plus. Outdoor shower convenient, as well, so as to not have to bring sand in the house after a walk on the beach. Nice patio with bbq. Steve is a very nice and thoughtful host. He left us a bottle of wine and chocolates as a birthday gift. Internet...
