La Jolla Casita

  • 2 of 5
Stayed at Casita for three days in early November with 2 young children
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

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our Spanish Casita in the Village of La Jolla, although we are a bit surprised by your review especially since you left a hand written message inside the Casita stating that you had a wonderful time and would be happy to rent the Casita again in the future.

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.

Thank you,
Eric and Yvonne

Spanish Casita in LaJolla

  • 5 of 5
We totally enjoyed staying at the Spanish Casita in LaJolla-our first visit there-it is close to everything we wanted to do-the shore, shopping, art shops, restaurants-we loved walking the path along the cove and seeing all beautiful plants and waterlife-we took advantage off the BBQ grill and were pleased to have dishes(even wine glasses for our wine) & utensils to cook out with on the great deck-everything was comfortable & clean-Thank you, Ann & Rich from NY

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
I rented this casita for my vacation in La Jolla, and do not regret it! The rental was exactly as described and the pictures accurately reflect the space. It's also walking distance to everything in downtown so I didn't need a car, and it was pretty spacious for a 1 bedroom.

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. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our Casita in the Village of La Jolla. We are delighted that you were able to enjoy many of the interesting sites and activities within walking distance of the Casita.

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.

Thanks again,
Eric and Yvonne

A sweet spot in La Jolla

  • 5 of 5
The casita was as advertised. It is well located for walking all around the village of La Jolla and a short car ride to other La Jolla and San Diego attractions. It has a wonderful deck for grilling and sunning. The beds were very comfortable. The casita feels quite private. The only drawbacks were the road noise, no stove in the kitchenette and the precarious in/out of the driveway due to the property being on a busy corner intersection. We would definitely recommend it and stay again!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this rental! We were so lucky to find this perfect little spot right in the heart of La Jolla. The area was beautiful and walking distance to most everything. There are many great sightseeing spots to visit that are only minutes away. The rental itself was very comfortable. There is a great patio with a seating area and a patio heater where we relaxed at night, and had breakfast in the morning (Come On In Cafe is within walking distance and served up a great breakfast to go).

If you haven't been to La Jolla, rent this place and checkout all the murals of La Jolla, tide pools, Contemporary Museum of Arts, kayaking and lots of great local food and shops. Drive a few miles and see downtown San Diego, USS Midway, the Aquarium, more museums...an endless list of fun.

Eric and Yvonne are awesome, very friendly, and we really appreciated the almost instant return of our deposit. The rental was well kept and had many thoughtful touches added for our comfort. Coffee, tea, dishes, bathroom supplies, etc. There were plenty of items for beach fun: Ice chests, radios, beach towels. They are the perfect hosts!

The only con we would list would be the traffic getting in and out of the driveway. This can't really be changed by the owners and we dealt with it just fine but it is on a corner and seems the locals are in too much of a hurry to give you any courtesy. We brought our bikes and either rode or walked most of the trip, but backing out of the driveway the times we did leave was annoying. I wouldn't let this hinder us coming here again since all the positives outweigh that minor inconvenience. Also something that is probably the cities responsibility, not the owners, is the steep peak on the driveway entrance. If that was leveled out it would make it much easier getting in and out with traffic. Again, these probably aren't something the owners have any control over.

Overall, this place was amazing and we will definitely be renting here again! Thanks for a very memorable trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your visit to our Casita in the Village of La Jolla, we appreciate the feed back and are delighted that you had a wonderful vacation. It sounds like you were able to make use of the location to walk to many of the incredible sites and activities that make La Jolla such a popular destination.

We certainly understand that it may be challenging for some to back out of the driveway, the best thing to do is to wait until the traffic light turns red which will allow ample time to make your exit. There also is parallel parking on the street which is usually available after 5 pm and is easy in and out. Give it a try on your next visit, we hope to see you again soon.

Thank you,
Eric and Yvonne
