The perfect home away from home Guest: Wess H. Date of Stay: 06/16/11 Review Submitted: 07/01/11 Where to begin with all of the wonderful things about this home and the neighborhood it is located in. La Joilla is such a wonderful place and then you drive up onto the hillside into the immaculate quite neighborhood where the home is located. The pictures online at VRBO looked great, but they didnt start to capture how great the home is. When we walked in, the home was so welcoming and warm. The entire ocean facing side of the house is almost entirely windows so no matter where you are in the home you have a great view. The living room has a wonderful fire place and sleep worthy couches, sooo very comfortable. Theres a terrific 8 person dinner table that is situated with perfect views out across La Joilla and to the ocean. When entering the master my wife immediately tried out the bed, shes a bit of a mattress critic, and immediately said we need to get one of these. Her opinion was the same after 3 nights of sleeping on the bed and according to her, being some of the best sleep she has had in a while. The master bath has a wonderful jetted tub that my wife and daughters enjoyed very much. At this point my wife and I were both commenting on how complete of a house this was, seeming to have every creature comfort you could think of. The master had its own work desk and printer at your disposal as well as wireless internet throughout the house if your need of such things, we were on vacation so they didnt get utilized during our stay. Not even having seen 1/3 of the house we were very excited about our stay. My wife had to go check out the kitchen, we like home cooked meals over the option of eating out. If I could think of an ideal kitchen, this one would be it. In keeping with the theme everything you could possibly need was there, immaculate, easy to find, and ready to use. We cooked several meals while there and never once said oh I wish we had a . Like the mattress I got the We should get one of these for our home a couple more times. To top it all off the kitchen had some of the most unique counter tops I have ever experienced. None of the time spent in this kitchen was seen as a chore. Downstairs there were 3 more bedrooms, a bathroom, and media room. All of the bedrooms were beautifully decorated in a minimalist fashion. Two of the bedrooms and the media room all had floor to ceiling glass, and doors in each that exited out onto the deck. There was another table and chairs in the media room

A great week, in La Jolla. Guest: SaltLakeSteve (Salt lake City, Utah) Date of Stay: 06/02/11 Review Submitted: 07/07/11 What a beautiful surprise. When my wife, two kids and three friends drove to the rental house we were a bit apprehensive. It looks small as we drove up, and I thought we would all have to sleep in one room. But once we opened the front entry door leading down to a private courtyard, we started to feel better about the house. Then opening the front door we knew things would be fine. The house is nice and big, it is on a hill with the two living floors below and behind the garage level. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, and this house fits in perfectly. It is not a crazy beach area so if you're looking for lots of drunk beach activity this may not be for you. It is a minimal walk to the village, where we had a few drinks at a couple of the bars, grabbed some food, and walked back to the house. The walk back to the house is uphill, and takes about 15 mines, but it sure beats having to deal with having a designated driver. La Jollavillage is a fun place with an upscale night life. My wife really enjoyed "La Valencia" where we passed the stuffy bar in front and had a casual drink in the piano lounge with a beautiful ocean view. Back to the house. The Master bedroom earns its name. It has an awesome view, private bath, TV, computer printer, its a great retreat. All the other bedrooms are downstairs. Two bedrooms have queens, one has two twins. One of the queen rooms has no ocean view, while the other two have ocean views with deck access. These rooms are smaller than the Master so we had to split the cost accordingly. But they were all clean, everything seemed new, and fresh. There is only the one bathroom downstairs, and with so many people, that required a little shower planning. But with the sinks on the outside of the toilet/bath and a 1/2 bath just upstairs, we did just fine. We never ran out of hot water with our large party, even while the kids did baths. Cleanliness: My wife is the type where if there is a hair in the sink she freaks out... She thought the place was immaculate. I only cared that the grill is big , got nice and hot and a searing burner was a juicy plus, YUM. Space: Plenty of space, nice entertainment room downstairs, with ocean view and access to deck. Location: Its in a very upscale neighborhood, with a great ocean view. Streets are a bit beat up oddly for the obvious real estate value. Traffic to the house from the freeway can be congested sometimes and add 10min to a pretty short drive.

Date of Stay: 07/02/11 Review Submitted: 07/11/11 We had a great stay. The home was lovely and had everything we could ever need. The courtyard was great and perfect for the two year old in our party. It was completely enclosed and she had a great time discovering the flowers around the courtyard. We were provided with a crib upon request and we had everything we needed at the house. They provided the beach towels as well as beach equipment. It was a perfect getaway in a great home

Guest: M (St Cloud, MN) Date of Stay: 08/09/11 Review Submitted: 08/21/11 We really enjoyed our stay at your home. We have five children between the ages of 9 and 17 and the house was set up perfectly for the seven of us. The location was very convenient for our daily excursions and only a mile from the La Jolla cove and village. The house was impeccable and very comfortable. We appreciated the use of your beach towels, beach chairs and sand toys. Also enjoyed the beautiful views from your deck. We will definitely recommend your home to others!

Excellent vacation rental Guest: Family of 3 (Washington, DC) Date of Stay: 07/30/11 Review Submitted: 08/07/11 We had a terrific time at the house and in La Jolla. We were 6 adults and 1 child (1 y.o) and had plenty of space to move around. The front yard is small but private with a grill. We walked to the village (about 15 minutes) and to the children's pool (about 25 min) just about every day. There are beach towels and children's beach toys at the house. The crib is about the size of a pack and play and was fine for our baby. The house is extremely quiet - very little noise from the outside world. With all the windows open, we enjoyed seasonal cross breezes and slept wonderfully

Guest: D (San Jose, CA)Date of Stay: 07/25/11 Review Submitted: 08/11/11 As those who have rented vacation properties from websites know, you're putting a great deal of faith in the descriptions and photos that are attached to every property listing. Happy to say that, in this case, the descriptions/photos actually don't go far enough to describe how nice this house is. First, the house was impeccably clean and felt very inviting. The house is built on a hillside, so the first floor at grade level is the garage. From the curb (as you drive up), this feature effectively hides the house from view. However, once you walk from the garage down the interior stairs to the kitchen, the house avails itself and, at that point, you know you've made a great choice. I could go on and on about describing the house. But, as I noted above, the owner's descriptions are accurate, just very understated. Suffice it to say that it's a great, relaxing, comfortable house, that has an upscale feel, but isn't pretentious (even though LaJolla Country Club's golf course is literally at the end of the street). La Jolla Village is a leisurely stroll down the hill (15 mins?), and an even quicker drive. The Village is a great place to walk around, grab a drink at an open-air bar, and just enjoy the mojo. It has great dining as well. When you've had enough, you get to leave all of that behind and go back to the tranquil neighborhood. Communication with the owner was easy, clear and precise; no misunderstandings or misrepresentations of any kind. Everything was as advertised; from the house itself, the rental agreement, the key location, the security deposit refund, etc. Finally, the owners have provided everything you need; all kitchen utensils, linens, towels, silverware, glassware, flatware, dishwashing soap, laundry soap, beach towels, beach chairs, even boogie boards! If you can't relax and have fun here, you're just grumpy.

Wonderful! - We stayed at La Jolla Serenity for more than two week and it was everything we were hoping for! The house was really cleaned and very well stocked with everything we needed. We have two young kids and the house was really kid friendly (plastic plates, beach toys, etc.). The views of the ocean are great and the patio was wonderful for great family & friends meals! The manager was great when we called for a little internet connection issue; it was resolved immediately. The house is really well located with walking distance to the La Jolla village, short drive to many beaches, parks, and attractions. It was also really easy to go running from the house! Overall we had a fantastic trip and I would recommend it to everyone! By Andre from Calgary on 11/5/2012 for a stay in 10/1/2012 at La Jolla Serenit
