This vacation rental is an incredibly rare oceanfront home in beautiful La Jolla with a private swimming pool, spa and direct access to Windansea beach. This Santa Barbara-style home is sited on the westernmost piece of beachfront property at the exact dividing point between Windansea Beach and Marine Street Beach in prestigious Lower Hermosa.
This exceptional coastal San Diego residence features ocean view decks, spacious patios and a grassy yard, all set against the backdrop of the blue Pacific Ocean. When staying at this oceanfront estate home, you won’t need to search for parking or have to walk to a public beach – right off your backyard is a private locked gate that gives you direct access to two of the best local beaches in San Diego away from the crowds.
Playa Vista Beachfront is located in a very exclusive, secure and gated La Jolla neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac. As you enter the property, you are greeted by a sunny interior courtyard with a swimming pool, spa and lounges. There is a built-in Dacor stainless steel outdoor grill for cooking your favorite meals and a dining table for al fresco dining. From the courtyard, you will enter the home through a foyer and into the great room with a 15′ open-beamed ceiling. Saltillo tile flooring, tasteful furnishings and a built-in fireplace topped by a 65″ curved flat-screen HDTV all conspire to create a wonderful space for groups to gather and spend time together. As impressive as the great room is, you’ll find your eyes drawn to the large bay windows that frame the spectacular and expansive views of the ocean and California coastline.
Step outside of the great room onto the oceanfront patio and gaze north towards Marine Street Beach, a body surfer’s and sunbather’s paradise. To the south is Windansea Beach, an incredibly picturesque beach featuring one of the most famous surf breaks in California and the setting and inspiration for Tom Wolfe’s novel, The Pump House Gang. Step down from the patio onto the grass lawn where you can lounge, or walk out past the private gate and put your toes in beach sand. Take a morning stroll and watch the whales and dolphins play in the surf, grab your board and hit the waves, or grab a beach chair and soak in the San Diego sunshine. It’s all here and waiting for you!
