About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Good location, close to shops, restaurants, art galleries, and beach walks. I appreciate the secure parking garage. The property was well maintained, but be prepared for some early morning phone conversations (heard through the wall) from the adjoining office suite. Hopefully, the construction activity just outside will be over soon. The owner was very helpful throughout the entire process. Description and photos accurately describe the property. I would recommend this property to friends/relatives.

Spacious, great location
We enjoyed our stay in Robyn's condo. It appears to be converted from a business space, so it looks a bit odd, but the living room is quite spacious, allowing our kids to spread out, and it's a 5 minute walk (with stairs) to La Jolla Cove where we could gawk at the sea lions. It was clean and quiet--the only neighbors were business workers during business hours. The kitchen worked fine for cooking Thanksgiving dinner, and the two beds were comfortable. There's also an inflatable bed and a sleeper sofa. It's true that you have to climb two flights of stairs from the garage to the condo. There is an elevator, but you can only get from the elevator to the condo during business hours by asking someone in the adjacent business. Robyn was friendly and responsive to text messages, and we had no trouble checking in or out by following her instructions.
First rate except for the wifi
We stayed for 3 weeks and really enjoyed the space and the location in downtown La Jolla Village. It is a residential unit in a commercial office building with off-street parking in an underneath garage. Security is great. The kitchen was well appointed and the furnishings and layout very comfortable throughout. Owner Robin and her staff were very accessible and responsive when we had questions or minor issues. We would have rated this a "5 star" if the wifi were improved and working at a high, fast level; it often slowed down, cut out, and was more difficult to get connected in the bedroom. It is a first rate apartment and the internet should be first rate as well.
The condo was very spacious, the price was reasonable for this area, and Robyn made everything very easy for us! And, having a designated parking spot was a real plus. Part of our goal in selecting a place to stay was to avoid having to drive very much, if at all, and this condo answered that need really well! With the exception of a trip to the Birch Aquarium, we didn't get in the car at all until it was time to leave - everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. For our needs this location really couldn't have been better.
It was great to have a full kitchen and so much space. We cooked dinner a few nights when we just didn't want to go out into the La Jolla scene and we also enjoyed being able to watch a movie in the evening on the large screen TV. With two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large family room, dining room and kitchen, there was plenty of space to spread out and relax.
That said, there are a few things to bear in mind about the property:
1) there are no windows that open, so apart from the sliding door to the small deck, that overlooks the alley where you enter the building and the doors that open off of the bedrooms, there is no easy way to let fresh air into the place. Since the doors in the bedrooms open onto somewhat public space - you share the entrance area with a few offices - we didn't really feel comfortable to open these doors much of the time - certainly not at night when some cool, fresh air would have been nice. Of course, the ocean is just a short walk away, so this is not a major issue.
2) Getting into the condo requires climbing two flights of stairs from the parking garage. Not a big issue for us, although it did take several trip up & down to bring our stuff up, and if there had been an elevator we would definitely have used it. This would probably be an issue for anyone who has trouble with stairs.
3) The AC works great overall, but it seems to cool some rooms a bit more intensively than others. Since there were different ideas about just what comfortable feels like in our party, finding the right thermostat setting for everyone was sometimes a challenge.
Overall, the condo served us well, and Robyn is super easy to work with! If you're looking for a place right in the heart of La Jolla village and just a short walk from the cove, this condo is definitely worth considering!
This condo was very spacious and very clean. The location was perfect because we wanted to be in walking distance of the beaches and restaurants. Robyn, the owner was great! She was very helpful in planning this trip and gave us wonderful tips on what to see in San Diego. She is also a photographer and she took awesome pictures of my family on the beach. I highly recommend this condo!!!
Location is excellent
We had been to La Jolla and San Diego area for a few times in past years. This time, we have chosen to stay in this property. Location-wise, it is excellent. It is within walking distance to a few good restaurants and the La Jolla Cove is within five minutes' walk. The facilities of the property is good and are exactly the same as shown in the photos. Two bedrooms with king sized beds that can comfortably accommodate four adults. Plus the air bed and sofa bed, it can easily cater for six. The property is clean and the washing machine and dryer are certainly positive elements for consideration of lodging.
The only drawback of the property that I would indicate is the wifi. The speed is slow and in certain area of the apartment, it is off. Despite the matter was referred to the owner who promised to get the tech guy to fix it, we don't find any improvement. Since we have to stay connected with our business even during vacation period, sometimes we have to share the mobile phone hotspot of my daughter who studies in UCSD. Other than this, our vacation and stay in the property is perfect. If not of the wifi, I would grade this property five stars.
Great location near restaurants, shopping, and the beach
After spending time in La Jolla a few years ago on a business trip, I knew I wanted to bring the entire family to the area for vacation. After much searching, we selected this property based on it's location and price. The property owner was responsive and easy to deal with throughout the entire process and stay.
First off, having gated, underground parking is a huge plus in this area. Parking can be a problem but not for us since we were able to leave the car in the garage and walk where we needed to go in the evenings. We spent our days visiting the area attractions and found this location to be very convenient and centrally located. Being just a 5 minute drive from La Jolla Shores is very nice if you have younger kids. It is one of the best and safest beaches that I have seen for kids.
The condo itself is interesting, as it is within a commercial building. This actually is a good thing since after hours and during weekends the place was empty and very quiet. We were very pleased with the size of the condo as well. With two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large family room, dining room and kitchen, there was plenty of space to spread out and relax. We also enjoyed using the grill on the large patio. The two HD TVs got plenty of use later in the evening when we just wanted to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.
There are a few things to note about the property. One, is there is no scenic view from the patio or small deck. Just have to walk a few blocks to get to the ocean, so this is not a big deal. The other things is that getting into the condo does require two flights of stairs from the parking garage. Not an issue for us, but something to keep in mind if don't like or have trouble with stairs.
Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
