This is a terrific La Jolla Vacation rental with contemporary furnishings, located just a short block to the ocean and Windansea Beach. It is a large two bedroom, two bathroom condo with a separate dining area, granite countertops in kitchen, queen sofa sleeper in the living room, travertine stone floors, private outdoor garden patio, and a generously-sized ocean view patio off the living area. The two bedrooms are both master suites; almost the same size and quite comfortable. There is free WiFi and a nice big flat screen TV in the living room with cable and DVR.

From here it’s a short stroll to Windansea beach. Cross the street and walk down a few stairs to a beautiful sandy beach with two point breaks to the north and to the south. The point to the north is the site of the legendary Windansea surf break and the famous Surf Shack, so there are plenty of opportunities to watch some world-class surfing as you soak up the sun. This beach is more of a locals beach so it doesn’t get as crowded as other popular San Diego beaches and has a great shore break for body surfing as well.

Back at the condo, there is a large private back patio with a nice gas BBQ grill to cook up your favorite meals, and then dine on the ocean view dining table before toasting the sunset over the Pacific with a nice bottle of wine.

There is a convenient parking spot right in the driveway of the condo, with extra street parking. This beach rental is located close to the shops and restaurants in the Village of La Jolla, with other shops and restaurants within walking distance. The condo was packed with everything you need for a comfortable vacation and is highly recommend  to anybody that is looking for a relaxing vacation at a beautiful beach community.

(cont) The WiFi was great, a washer and dryer were available to wash clothes, and there were even boogie boards and bikes available to use. It seems that the owner has really thought about everything we could have needed as each time the wife and I thought about something, sure enough, the condo had it. As for the noise issue that the one 4 star rating discussed, we never at anytime noticed any noise from the unit above and we know that people were there as we saw them walk into the unit. I'd be surprised if noise is ever an issue at this sleepy condo. Overall, an extremely beautiful and comfortable place to spend some quiet time in heaven!!!

(cont) so there is no lack of talented surfers to watch as you enjoy the sun and sand. Back at the condo, there is a large private back patio with a nice gas grill. The second night we were there we grilled up some steaks and made chili on the state of the art smooth electric range. Then the wife and I sat down to the dinning room table and enjoyed our dinner with a delicious bottle of wine that the owner so graciously gave to us! After dinner, we played monopoly (provided) and watched a couple of movies that we had DVRed on the comfy pull out couch in the living room... it was one of the best wedding anniversaries that we've had, thanks to this superb listing! Parking was perfect, right in the driveway of the condo, and the condo is located close to the shops and restaurants in La Jolla. However, I recommend ordering some pizza and garlic knots from Pizza on Pearl, which delivers to the condo.

Brent P. Huntington Beach 5 of 5 stars Submitted: Nov 18, 2014 Stayed: Nov 2014 FANTASTIC PROPERTY FOR AN AMAZING PRICE!!! Let me start by saying that I will definitely be staying here again and I found my San Diego area place to stay when in town. The unit is big and in great condition, the appliances are nicer than what I have at home, there is a nice big TV in the living room with cable and DVR, and, last but certainly not least, you can see the sunset on the ocean from the balcony (the profile pic is the balcony view and during our stay that piece of the ocean was where the sun set :) ). If you are not happy enough watching the sunset from the balcony, the unit is one very small block back from the ocean and takes a minute to walk to. When you walk to the beach, you go down a few stairs and you are on a beautiful sandy beach with two point breaks on either side. The beach is long enough not to be crowded at all and one of the points is the legendary Windansea surf break, (cont.

La Jolla Getaway was Great! 5 of 5 stars The family stayed several nights over the 2010 Labor Day Holiday weekend in Karl's home one block from the waterfront. We were able to see the ocean as we kicked back and read from the balcony. The house was immaculate, modern, and well-furnished. We met the property manager, Michael, a truly great gentlemen who really cared that our stay was great. He was around the property several times during our stay. The house is just mintutes away from downtown La Jolla/La Jolla cove and Mission/Pacific Beach areas. Great restauraunts abound. The evenings/nights were very quiet and tranquil. I would heartily recommend the property and its location for anyone who desires a luxurious stay just a block away from the ocean!

Beautiful and Comfortable 5 of 5 stars Myself and my two sons thorougly enjoyed our stay at Karl's downstairs rental. It was very nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Our only regret is that our stay was plagued by 3 days of rain. Although this rental is a bit pricey, it is worth the splurge. I would definitely stay at this rental again. Alice and sons Phoenix, Arizona Submitted: Mar 22, 2010 Stayed: Mar 2010

Spectacular Ocean View, Quiet Location! 5 of 5 stars I had stayed in this vacation rental condo (both the top unit and bottom unit) for two different occasions and had such an amazing experience. The vacation home is conveniently located near grocery stores, restaurants, small art galleries and contemporary art museum (5-10 minutes car ride) . Inside the condo, the cozy living space with high ceilings, a professionally equipped kitchen and living room, and uniquely decorated and furnished bedrooms with baths provide a perfect setting for family gatherings or entertaining large groups. An expanse of glass affords fabulous view of the ocean from the condo. Outside, the balcony of each condo provide spectacular view of the ocean and especially the sunset. I can say that this vacation home is strategically located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods of La Jolla, San Diego, not to mention the top-rated beach Windandsea that it is facing. This magnificent home is literally 100 me

Good therapy! 5 of 5 stars The apartment was all that we imagined it would be. It was well equipped , comfortable and clean.Karl was very helpful before we arrived with information about the apartment and the area.There were three of us and we had lots of room to spread out and relax. The apartment was very well located, 1 block from the beach, close to the #30 bus route. This bus could take you into the center of La Jolla or into Old Town and San Diego. If you do not want to take day-trips or to travel around every day , it is possible to do without a car and use public transportation. You are able to buy a Day Pass on the bus...good value for money. Vons is the nearest supermarket , an easy 20 min walk or 5 minutes by car. There is a great bagel place on La Jolla Blvd , less than 10 min walk away. We used it every day.There is a great fish restaurant close to Children's Beach, where one can have awesome clam chowder and endless glasses of ice tea.The walk back after seeing the seal

Home from Home 5 of 5 stars We have recently returned from our seventh or eighth stay in the downstairs apartment in La Jolla over the past 5 years.We cannot add to the other excellent reviews other than to say we are very fussy as to the the standard of furnishings and equipment we excpect in a property and this apartment (and the one upstairs) more than fulfill our requirements. Everytime we come back after a long journey to visit family and open the door its like coming home! The downstairs apartment also benefits from a small rear garden equipped with modern table and chairs and a barbecue. The view alone is worth the rental.

(cont.) I loved the contemporary decor as it was clean, calming and fit so well with the layout of the rooms. Bed was really comfortable, bathrooms great and ample closet and storage space. The neighborhood was lovely and ever evening we took a walk . Property manager was great and checked in on us during our stay. The owner Karl was more than accommodating and went above and beyond when it came to an initial booking dilemma we incurred. Was always available and friendly, even when I awoke him late one night unaware of the time difference. I highly recommend this unit and I would love to be able to stay here again! I took some great pictures and can hopefully submit them as the view again is spectacular. Karen from Scottsdale - Submitted: Aug 12, 2015 Stayed: Jul 2015

Wonderful Place and Great Stay! 5 of 5 Stars This review also took me longer to submit than anticipated. We stayed here in July 2015 and from the moment we opened the front door were impressed and thoroughly happy. It is much closer to the beach than we expected given the pictures. Literally two houses from the beach and the view is amazing. As another viewer stated, we rarely ventured around town as our own accommodations and view surpassed most of what the downtown area could offer. Sunset was great! We would sit on the very large patio and share a bottle of wine at the table or read on the lounge chairs strategically placed for the best views. We never heard any noise from the unit above and there were several people staying in the unit as we saw them coming and going. The kitchen was perfect as I love to cook and there were more than enough dishes and pots and utensils to keep me happy. The lawn chairs and towels were a nice touch and used by us on several days. - continued

Ocean Peace 5 of 5 stars Sorry it took so long to write this. What you see in the pictures are correct. This is a quiet place to stay, not a lot of street noise. The sounds of the ocean is great. We grilled out every night, and enjoyed both the patio and the deck for the sunset views. The kitchen is well supplied with more than one of a kind plates, pots and pans. We enjoyed it so much that the only thing we did was to go to the beach and then back home. Being able to park in the driveway was great. Michael helped us with things we were not sure of. He was really nice. It was nice to meet you on our last day. We are really glad that you allowed small pets, as they are our family. Thank you for the prompt deposit refund. We are in hopes to come back this fall. Anyone wanting to enjoy the quiet and the closeness to the ocean should check your places out. I am glad we rented the downstairs, not sure if I could have made the steps to the upper condo.

Great place for two couples or a family 5 of 5 stars What we liked about this VRBO is that the place looks just like the photo's. It is clean, bright, comfortable and 150 feet to the ocean which you can see and hear from the living / dining room. It is a quiet area of town just under a mile to Pearl street.

Beautiful Condo in La Jolla. 5 of 5 stars My family had a great time at Karl's Windansea condo. The condo is superb, and has an amazing ocean view. Everything was perfect; the condo was closed to everything in San Diego. We really enjoyed waking up in this beautiful place and taking our dog to the beach for an early walk. Sitting on the front balcony (enjoying the sunset) or having lunch at the patio was also our favorite part of the trip. The condo was packed with everything you need for a comfortable vacation, Karl the owner and Mike the property manager, thought of every single detail. They are always available for you, to answer questions and to help with anything we needed during our stay.

Awesome place 4 of 5 stars We really enjoyed staying at this home. The owner went above and beyond what we could have asked. We were traveling with two infants but there was only one portable crib at the home. So, before we arrived, the owner actually went out and bought another portable crib so we wouldn't have to travel with ours. What an extremely nice thing to do! We really appreciated that and it made traveling so much easier. When we arrived we also found a nice bottle of wine and a note to welcome us to the home. The place was very clean and well maintained and everthing we needed was provided (dishes, linens, washer & dryer, bicycles, etc). It truly felt like a home away from home. The ocean was a block away and we enjoyed great views of the waves from the balcony. The patio area in the back was lovely and we made use of the grill while we were there. Another great thing about this property is that the two bedrooms are almost the same size. We had four adults and two infants
