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!

Easy walk to shops, eateries, and Scripps Park. Super clean with soft linens and comfy bed. Small chest freezer on deck to keep ice in for drinks. Loved this place!

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This casita was absolutely perfect for our girls weekend. It fit the three of us very comfortably and the location couldn't have been better. We were able to walk to every meal, bar, and beach that we wanted to go to. We were also able to take gorgeous pictures on the patio because it's just so cute! Great little casita!

Wonderful property close to all local attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Eric and Yvonne were wonderful hosts. The unit had everything we needed. We especially loved the outdoor patio. The rental is also walking distance to the ocean, restaurants and grocery store. We would definitely rent again.

Loved it despite its quirks

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hello Jeff from Buffalo, Great to hear that you were very comfortable in the Casita, loved the location and how central it is to restaurants, beaches, shopping art galleries and nightlife. Just to clear up a few items, the Casita has a kitchenette not a full kitchen, which is clearly explained in the description of the property. The kitchenette has an under counter refrigerator, not a dorm room sized refrigerator, an induction cook top, coffee maker, microwave, blender, toaster and new quartz counters with a new sink. In locations that are desirable, (NYC, Paris, La Jolla) it is important to make the best use of the space. Perhaps the price per square footage is much less expensive in Buffalo. There is a 400 square foot deck with a Viking grill, a table with 4 chairs, for anyone that wishes to cook a full meal. We provide a minimum of 6 bath towels and several beach towels. While we do not provide daily maid service or change your sheets daily we would be happy to supply extra sheets if requested. Usually guest staying for one week or less do not request additional linens. We are always more than happy to provide anything that will make our guests stay as comfortable as possible. Just ask if there is anything you need. Thank you, Eric and Yvonne

Could have been much better

  • 3 of 5

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.
