San Diego Vacation Rental with Ocean View

June 24, 2011 | By | Reply More

This La Jolla vacation rental has a panoramic ocean view.

Vacation rentals are popular because they are good value and can accommodate families in a home-away-from-home environment.

The drawback is that picking the right one can be tricky. When I travel, I spend days online looking at pictures and trying to make the right decision. I never know if I should believe the glowing description written by the home owner.

Since the purpose of “La Jolla Travel Information” is to make sure that you enjoy your time in my hometown, I’ve starting personally checking out our vacation rentals.

The first house I visited is in the Muirlands area on Mt. Soledad and has an unobstructed view down to the ocean and the coastline sweeping south to Pacific Beach and beyond. The day I was there, lots of people were sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing in the waves.

A quarry tile patio faces the view, and I’m sure guests sit here by the hour watching the action. A canyon, immediately in front of the patio, provides privacy.

The four bedrooms and a den sleep up to ten people, and there are three bathrooms. Built in 1956, the two-story house is 2,600 square feet (241.55 sq meters, if I did the math right). It has hardwood floors, open-beam ceilings, a big fireplace, laundry facilities, and a fully-equipped kitchen with dishes, flatware, and glasses for about 18. The rooms are somewhat sparsely furnished, which is perfect for travelers who don’t want to feel like they’re living on top of someone else’s things.

The rent ranges from $2,500 – $3,500 a week, depending on the time of year, and includes cable and wi-fi. The owners, who live nearby, are very helpful and welcome families and pets.

The central shopping and dining area of La Jolla (what we call “the village”) is a five-minute drive down the hill. La Jolla Shores Beach is about ten minutes from the house, but Windansea Beach is closer (maybe five minutes).

Email the owners at cscapeinc@gmail.com or call 858-945-0896. Click here to see a video of the house.

I’ll be reviewing other vacation rentals in the near future, so consider subscribing to this blog. I wouldn’t want you to miss finding the place that is perfect for you and your family.

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
