Gate to Access Beach and Ocean


You’ve found it! An incredibly rare ocean front home in La Jolla with a swimming pool and direct beach access. This Santa Barbara-style home is sited on the westernmost piece of beach front property at the exact dividing point between Windansea Beach and Marine Street Beach in prestigious Lower Hermosa.

This exceptional coastal San Diego residence features view decks, spacious patios and a grass yard, all set against the back drop of the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. When staying at this ocean front estate home, you won't need to search for parking or have to walk to a public beach; right off your back yard is a private locked gate that gives you direct access to two of the best local beaches in San Diego, away from the crowds at La Jolla Shores and Mission Beach.

Secure and gated, Playa Vista is located in a very exclusive La Jolla neighborhood on a quiet cul-de-sac with an unassuming street presence. As you enter the property, you are greeted by a sunny and protected interior courtyard with a swimming pool, spa and lounges. There is a built-in Dacor stainless outdoor grille for cooking your favorite meals and 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' high 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 are always drawn to the large bay windows that frame the spectacular and expansive views of the ocean and this very special stretch of California coastline.

Step outside of the great room onto the ocean front patio and gaze north towards Marine Street Beach; a body surfers and sun-bathers paradise. To the south is Windansea Beach; incredibly picturesque and featuring one of the most famous surf breaks in California, as well as the setting and inspiration for Tom Wolfe's novel, The Pumphouse Gang. Step down from the patio onto the grass lawn where you can lounge or meditate to the mesmerizing sounds of the ocean, or walk out the private gate and your toes are in the sand! Take a morning stroll and watch the whales and dolphins play in surf, or 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!

Playa Vista La Jolla has a rich heritage and notable history as well. Because of the incredible location, this property was selected and purchased as a summer home by one of the founding members of one of Hollywood's biggest and most famous studios. Over the years Playa Vista has hosted major stars, political figures and behind the scene movers and shakers. Now you have the opportunity to experience this one-of-a-kind vacation rental and discover why this is one of the most coveted pieces of property in all of Southern California. 

We invite you to call and learn more and make this your own private retreat!

Our family has rented various vacation homes in California through the years but only recently worked with Bluewater Vacation Homes in the rental of an oceanfront home in La Jolla. It was a great pleasure to have this agency arrange an enjoyable, memorable experience for our family. Each staff person with whom I had contact was professional, friendly, and helpful. Bluewater is the gold standard for premium vacation rental agencies. Their customer service exceeded our highest expectations. Bluewater has exceptional reviews because they deserve the accolades. We will definitely have them assist us again for renting property in the future.
The Playa Vista Beachfront home was amazing! The Bluewater Web site description accurately depicts the property's features, and indeed it is a gem. It is rare to find an oceanfront home with direct beach access, a grass yard, and a swimming pool and spa in an interior courtyard. It was very convenient to have en-suite bathrooms and TVs for each bedroom. The availability of parking in the two-car garage and in the driveway was an added bonus. The ocean views were spectacular especially being able to see the beautiful sunsets. There is some construction work taking place directly at the property next door. It slightly affected our privacy but not sufficiently enough to interfere with our enjoyment of staying at this lovely home. We will most likely consider renting this property again.

Your description of the property was very accurate. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and helpful. Any issues we had were dealt with promptly. The housekeeper who was assigned to us was excellent as was the babysitter from Destination Sitters.
The location of the house is unbeatable. Even though there were construction sites either side this didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The indoor living area is spacious and we loved being able to spread out onto the three different outdoor spaces. We liked that the pool and hot tub were in the inner courtyard away from the sea breeze. We were there with our kids and grandkids and everyone had a really good time. We would happily stay in this house again.

Bluewater staff have all been great in our year of communication with various people there to help our first trip from Michigan to California happen. See above comments on how amazing Paul Becker and Jolene were. Additionally, when we did our arrival walk through the house, Cameron met us there and was helpful in instructing how things worked as well as recommending some things to see in the area. We used the kayak company and bike rental company recommended by bluewater and loved our experiences with them as well.
Our family would definately stay in this home again. Lication in the area is perfect, allows for amazing ocean and sunset views. The area of beach was more private than most. Lots of room, nice to have a pool and hot tub while having the home on the ocean. There was construction on either side of us going on,but that is a circumstance beyond the owners control. The master bathroom shower and an additional bedroom shower could use replacing the old materials. The bunk bed in one of the rooms was challenging for 2 kids to use because of the low height of the bottom bunk.

Very receptive and great to work with.
House is great! My only negative is that there are a lot of burned out lightbulbs in garage and round pool. Well equipped and comfortable for families with kids.

The house was perfect; it was very clean, the photos were accurate, and we had a great time! Bluewater was very responsive and communicative, and remained on call to answer all of our questions, and were extremely helpful. We traveled with a lot of children, and it was well worth it. We will definitely be back, and would definitely recommend this rental company!"

This house is better looking in person if you can believe that. The very nice reps met us at the house and walked us through. They assured us if there were any problems to give them a call. This was a great experience and we plan on coming back. They gave us the names of rental companies they work with and they had some surf boards and SUP on site when we arrived. The only work I had to do was cook, because I didn't ask for a chef. The beach was basically all ours, and it was memorial weekend! Kids loved the critters in the rocks and playing in the sandy surf beach. We left the back door open in the master up stairs at night so we could listen to the crashing waves and feel the cool breeze. All the basics were supplied just like a resort. Cant wait to use this company again.
