La Jolla, San Diego, California
We purchased this craftsman (“arts and crafts” style) home in May 2013, because we loved its unique character, serene feel, and unobstructed eastern view. We are constantly improving it, fixing up the landscaping, installing solar, and purchasing art. A/C was installed in October 2017. The outdoor space features a solar heated pool with a cascading water feature and large jacuzzi. There is a gas BBQ with a granite counter, a gas fire pit for smores, and huge dining table with seating for 10, plus additional seating in a love seat, comfy chairs, lounge chairs, and hammock. On the side of the yard are various fruit trees, including lemon, guava, clementine and kumquat. The unobstructed view stretches past the Cuyamaca Mountains to the desert.

Interaction with guests
I generally stop by a day or two after guests arrive, typically in the morning, to check the pool/jacuzzi and to meet guests. I'll call/text before I arrive. I do not go into the house, but I will go around to the pool/jacuzzi in the back.

We booked this location during the last week of July for a family gathering, including six adults and two children. Ultimately, we were very disappointed. This property, listed as a luxurious accommodation when we booked, did not meet our expectations and standards. We raised a...More

About the neighborhood
Great location!! Quiet neighborhood at the top of Mount Soledad, La Jolla. It is not in downtown La Jolla, which offers a few huge advantages, and a few disadvantages:
1. Our property is located at the top of Mount Soledad, so it is much more convenient than most areas of La Jolla. A couple mins drive and you are on I-5, which takes you anywhere. Beaches, shops, restaurants are within 2-3 miles. 10 mins in your car will get you to the San Diego zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park with tons of museums, downtown San Diego, the airport, Old Towne, Little Italy, the Convention Center, etc. This is a huge advantage over most areas of La Jolla, particularly the downtown and surrounding areas. There is only one road in/out of downtown La Jolla, and it gets tons of traffic. During rush hour and...
