My husband and I came here for a baby moon and couldn't have enjoyed it more! Great location. We had a blast walking to great brunch and dinner spots, the La Jolla open air market, shopping, and the cove. It was clean and decorated nicely. They had fresh flowers for us on arrival. Wonderful owners that were very hospitable and helpful. Love La Jolla and this cozy vacation spot!

We were very comfortable in the Casita. It is really a great location - we could walk everywhere. Close to grocery store, the beaches, and everything downtown. The noise machine and the fans helped mute traffic noise. Great for a couple.
That being said, the kitchenette isn't even really that. It is a place to make coffee and slice cheese. The refrigerator is dorm-sized - big enough for cream and a few snacks or beverages. The "induction cooktop" is merely a hot plate! While it's not conducive to cooking, there are tons of dishes, pans and enough silverware for a camp. One drawer is filled with butter knives.
There are two beds in the unit - one in a "bedroom," where the kitchenette is, and one in the living room. The bedroom has a door, but also an open doorway. There would be no privacy if other people were there. The living room was comfortable, but again a bit odd because there is a bed in it.
The patio is terrific. It's a great place to hang out, and there is, in fact, a grill out there. There is a heater as well. And a chest freezer in case you need a whole lot of ice.
It would help to have extra sheets in the unit, extra towels, and a designated spot to place dirty linens. We were there for over a week and wanted to change sheets when our daughter came for one night. There are beach towels and even chairs in a closet for guests to use - a nice feature.
We would definitely stay again. Perfect for a couple who don't care about cooking. Seriously, you couldn't even make breakfast in the kitchen unless you cooked it all in one pan.
Overall this was an ok place to rent. The location, exterior, patio and living room were nice, and the owners were flexible and responsive which is always appreciated. The traffic noise was definitely a concern, as others have mentioned. But the cramped bedroom + kitchenette and bathroom were by far the most negative aspects. This place could definitely benefit from some updates.
The bathroom - Small, dated and carpeted. The shower head was low, the tub was very slow to drain, and the water was warm at best. Pretty disappointing and a bit gross.
The combined bedroom and kitchenette feel very cramped. If you don't expect to cook or buy many groceries, then this might not be a problem. But if you do, or if you have a child or small group, this would likely be a challenge.
There are many nice places in the area, I'm sure. I would recommend doing some research on all the options and considering spending more elsewhere. I wish I had.
While this adorable little casita is located on a busy corner, if you are one who enjoys the convenience of walking to the chic downtown of La Jolla, the beach and all that it offers, this is the place for you! You can park your car and not use it again! The traffic noise can be heard, but who cares...you are not in the mountains! Eric & Yvonne are the best...we had a little maintenance request & Eric took care of it immediately! The ambiance of the casita is great. The outdoor patio is a perfect place to enjoy the So Cal Sunshine and a glass of wine after a day of adventure! I highly recommend the Casita...this is our 2nd time there and we will surely return! Thanks Eric & Yvonne!
Do yourself a favor and rent a hotel room. Rental is very noisy on a busy road with traffic all hours of the night. The heat was unbearable and no AC in the unit made for an extremely uncomfortable stay. Owner completely unreasonable. Location is close to La Jolla Cove, restaurant and shops other than that it is a zero.
What an absolutely fabulous place to stay, and have only the regret of not planning a longer vacation! Will most certainly stay here again if they'll have us. Clean and cozy, very well decorated, and a fantastic deck! To all future vacationers, do enjoy, we wish we were there!
The Spanish Casita was the best! Great location, very comfortable and well taken care of. The owners were quick at responding to emails, giving advice and made sure all our needs were met. Cant wait to go back!! Love Love Love this place.
