vacation rental description

You will be able to truly live out your Southern California Vacation dream when you stay in the oceanfront Historic Luxury Cove Cottage. This home has been featured on the cover of a magazine and used as the set of a cooking show. It is also an annual stop on the Historic La Jolla walking tour and the San Diego Home and Garden tour. Its unique roof line and octagonal design make it a real treat if you happen to enjoy architecture. The cliffs in front of the cottage are known as Whale View Point. People come from around the world to sit and gaze at the beauty of the Pacific Ocean at this very spot. On weekends you’ll see nearby artists painting at their easels, picnickers with bountiful feasts and couples reciting their vows in the nearby wedding bowl as the sun sets over the horizon.

When you wake up in the morning you can walk to the beach just outside your door for an early swim and then wash off the sand in your outdoor shower adjacent to the patio. Afterwards, you’ll be able to take the family into the village, just two blocks east, for a day of shopping, or visit the local museum and aquarium. In the evening watch the seals play on the beach, before
walking back to the house to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. When you go to bed, you’ll fall asleep peacefully as the sounds of the ocean lull you into a deep slumber.

Parking at this home comes with garage space for two cars and the whole house comfortably sleeps eight guests. If you rent the entire house you’ll have access to five outdoor spaces—there are two patios upstairs and three downstairs! The best views can be found upstairs, so if you find yourself on the fence between renting the whole cottage or just the downstairs, we highly recommend you rent the whole home to have a vacation or business trip you’ll always treasure.

Rental Options:

You may book either the main floor of the cottage (maximum 6 guests) or the whole house (with upper apartment, for a total of 8 guests).

Option 1: Main Level (allows for 6 guests)
The upper level apartment will not be rented during your stay.
The main level sleeps 6 but the master bedroom has a futon that allows for one additional guest.

Option 2: Whole House – Including Upper Level Apartment (total of 8 guests)
There is an apartment above the master and the garage that allows for 2 additional guests, for a total of 8 guests. It is available for rental when you rent the whole house. It has a queen bed, office, small kitchenette and huge bathroom with a full terrace off of the bathroom.

Room Descriptions

Living Room (In Main level)

This unique octagonal room is the perfect place to unwind. Relax on the couch by the fireplace with a book or watch T.V. on the HD flat-screen with cable.

Kitchen (In Main Level)

It’s recently renovated and ready for your gourmet delights. With granite countertops and stainless steel appliances working in this space will be a breeze. You’ll be able to enjoy cooking while partaking of ocean views and the company of friends and family in the dining room.

Downstairs Master Bedroom (In main Level)

From this room you will be able to wake up to ocean views and savor breakfast on your own personal patio. Outside there is a table for four and two deck chairs for sunbathing. The bedroom has its own private bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. Connected to the master bedroom there is also a very cozy den with a comfy couch and a big glass window from which to enjoy the sights and sounds.

Captain’s Room (In Main Level)

For some people, this is the best bedroom in the house as its cozy feel and architectural position gives the impression of being right on the water’s edge. It has its own personal patio with seating for two that’s ideal for morning coffee or tea.

Upstairs Apartment (Only available with rental of Whole House)

The most majestic views of the ocean can be found here. There are two patios, a kitchenette, an office and a huge bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks and a walk-in shower. The apartment repeats the octagonal design of the living room, as well as the unique tall pitched ceiling providing an extra spacious feel. And to top it all off a big king size bed along with a big flat screen TV.

traveler reviews for this la jolla cottage rental

Great Location

Review submitted: October 8, 2009   Date of arrival: September 20, 2009

You cannot beat the location of this property. It is situated directly across the street from the ocean. We loved the conveinance of slipping into our swimsuits and walking across the street to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The outside landscape is lovely but the inside of the property leaves something to be desired. It is pretty outdated, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. I love to cook but kept myself out of the kitchen as much a possible. One other downside to the property is that the owner stays upstairs while you rent the main floor. Not a huge deal, but you don't feel like you are quite on your own. With that said, the wonderful location did make up for the aging interior. Not sure we will stay here again but we're very grateful for the wonderful memories the bungalow provided us during our stay, If your expectation of the property includes a beautiful, modern interior I'd suggest staying elsewhere. If not, I'd recommend giving it a shot!

Our Enchanted Family Vacation at the Cottage

Review submitted: August 10, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2014

I love reviews. They are good for promoting great property etc. and helping others when things aren't what they say they are. This was our first beach rental ever. We wanted a property that would allow our entire family of six adults to be together and not feel cramped. Everyone except me is over six feet tall so we needed big beds too. From the moment we met Laura at the cottage we knew we had made the right decision. Being that she has lived at this property for many years she was most helpful in pointing out all the little details that would make our stay more comfortable. If you are looking for modern, contemporary, upbeat, this is not a property I think you would enjoy. However, if you want family time, amazing views, comfortable beds with the softest sheets I have ever slept on, quiet evenings where all you can hear is the surf, beautiful sunsets and an easy walk to town, then this is your rental. Having a washer and dryer makes your stay even more like being home so you won't need to take all the clothes we did this year. Every bedroom has its own sitting area outside which is so unbelievable. The owners had just purchased all new patio furniture and we felt so fortunate to have this extra space. We did lots of BBQ and outdoor meals which was again so special to our family. The amenities provided were so appreciated. One problem and it isn't the fault of the cottage is the cell service is very poor in most areas. A great fix to this is there is a land line for your use which is very convenient. It was actually really nice not having our cell phones ringing. There was a huge (60 inch at least) HD TV in the living room. All bedrooms also had wonderful flat screen TV's but we rarely turned them on. There is a two car garage and YES we did get both a jeep and Grand Cherokee Jeep in there. The cottage also has lots a fans for every room so no need to drag that along as we did. The family room has a large coffee table which was fantastic for working on our 1000 piece puzzle. These are all little notes about how enchanting this time was while we stayed 10 days at the little pink cottage. We can't wait to go back next year again. We also worked with Gabriela who was very efficient and met the owner while checking out, Sara Long. Darling woman bringing in more new furniture pieces to make this special place even nicer. We were all sad as we left our little enchanted cottage but are making lots of plans for our return!

I rented this place for my grandmother and she loved it. We had the best time. Place couldn't have been more perfect for her and the rest of my family. You could see the water from any point in the house. We laid out on the grass to watch the sunset every night and it was just perfect. I loved every bit of this house. We made some unforgettable memories! Thank you Laura. Can't wait to be back there again soon!! All the best. xo
