Guestbook comments from the owner
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!

Could have been much better
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.
Love the Casita!~
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!
Special family vacation
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.
In the words of my two year old, "YES PLEASE!"
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!
Time of our lives
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.
Our Casita Getaway
WE LOVE LA JOLLA!!! One of our favorite places on earth. The Casita was a perfect fit for our needs during our stay. We love to be able to walk to restaurants, parks and shops, and were able to do just that. Every day, we walked to different beaches, found yummy spots for lunch and dinner, watched the sunset over La Jolla's shore and explored the area. Great location to do all of those things.
We have a 3-year-old son and had no problems with him at all in the Casita. There were even buckets, chairs and beach toys for us to use! The deck is AMAZING and was not at all unfriendly to our youngster. We ate breakfast out there most mornings and enjoyed the cool breezes. There are two beds, one in the main living area and one in the bedroom and this worked perfectly for our small family.
The Casita is an older property and incredibly charming... the windows do let in the traffic noise from Torrey Pines Road down below. But that has been mentioned and addressed in past reviews, so no one staying here should find any reason to complain.
We would absolutely stay here again and wish Eric and Yvonne the best!! GO GATORS!!
