La Jolla Casita
Casita was for the most part as described
Location is great
Walking distance to La Jolla Village with several amenities(dining,shopping)
This location unfortunately is very noisy as it is on the corner of a very busy street
There is traffic at all hours of day and early morning which makes it to difficult to get a restful sleep(whether in living area or bedroom)
Living area was clean and nicely decorated
Found the layout of the kitchen and bathroom which is located off the bedroom to be awkward and not overly practical
Kitchen and bathroom are both quite dated and it would be nice to see a little money invested back into these areas to modernize and provide a facelift
We had very little water pressure for bathing during our stay and the there was not a lot of hot water
Once again a few dollars spent on the bathroom would make a huge difference
Deck is very nice(need to be careful however if you have children) though we were not able to get deck heater working
Some minor repair work on windows, electrical outlets and door/gate locks would also be welcome
For those looking to be within walking distance of La Jolla this is a great location although there are definitely some drawbacks to the property
We probably would not rent Casita again
A note to future guests: we have a $300 deposit which we refund fully 99% of the time. Occasionally, when the property is not left in the same condition that it was when guests arrived we have to charge a nominal fee to restore the Casita to same condition it was in when guest arrived. It is very rare that we withhold a portion of a deposit but because we seek to provide many additional amenities such as beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, propane heater for the deck, etc...it is occasionally necessary to withhold a portion of a guests deposit to repair or replace items that have been lost or broken so we can provide the same experience for future guest.
Regarding a few of the items mentioned in the review:
The water pressure is fine, it may be less during early morning (6 am) when the irrigation system is running every other day.
The Casita has a full size water heater located inside the Casita that is used to exclusively heat the water used in the Casita which provides plenty of hot water.
The propane heater on the deck works fine, there are operating instructions listed on the front of the heater. Please feel free to contact us should you have any difficulties understanding or operating any of the items provided to make your stay a wonderful experience.
The deck is very safe when guests provide proper adult supervision for their children.
The Village of La Jolla is a very popular place and with that there is some urban noise during business hours. We are very interested in providing a wonderful experience for our guests, if you are highly sensitive to noise during the day this may not be the proper rental. If you like to be walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shopping, museums, night life, art galleries, etc.. then this is an ideal rental at a great value.

Spanish Casita in LaJolla
The only two potential downsides of this rental:
1. The bathroom's not too updated (and it's carpeted--that took a bit of adjusting); and
2. If you're highly sensitive to light/noise, it's next to a pretty large street and may make it a little difficult to sleep.
Regardless, Yvonne and Eric are great and highly responsive, making my vacation a breeze! I got my deposit back before even leaving San Diego that day. :)
The Village of La Jolla is a very active location with restaurant, shopping, beaches, nightlife, art galleries, museums, special events, etc... and due to the popularity there can be a bit of noise during the day time hours.
For those that need a dark space to sleep, we have black out blinds on every window behind the bamboo shades.
Glad to hear you had a wonderful visit to La Jolla.
