DESCRIPTION
This vacation rental is a rare oceanfront home in La Jolla with a private swimming pool, spa and direct access to the sand. Playa Vista is a Santa Barbara-style home, sited on the westernmost piece of beachfront land at the dividing point between Windansea Beach and Marine Street Beach.

This exceptional coastal home features ocean-view decks, spacious patios, and a grass 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 – your backyard leads to a private locked gate offering direct access to two of the best local beaches in San Diego.

Playa Vista Beachfront is gated and located in the exclusive Lower Hermosa neighborhood and on a quiet cul-de-sac. Enter the property and be greeted by a sunny interior courtyard with a swimming pool, spa, and lounges. There is a built-in outdoor grill for cooking your favorite meals and a dining table for poolside lunches.

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 and tasteful furnishings create a wonderful space to gather and spend time together. and you’ll find your eyes drawn to the large bay windows that frame the spectacular and expansive views of the ocean and coastline.

Step outside 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 the sea gate and put your toes in beach sand. There's nothing like taking your morning stroll along the beach and seeing dolphins play among the surfers just outside your door.

Besides the incomparable setting, Playa Vista Beachfront has a rich heritage and notable history. Because of its special location, this property was originally purchased as a summer home by a founding member of one of Hollywood’s most famous movie studios. Over the years, Playa Vista Beachfront has hosted major stars, political figures, and behind-the-scenes 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 Southern California. We invite you to call and learn more and make this your own private retreat!

Great home

by Ricky S
Our family rented this home and it did not disappoint. Place was very clean when we arrived. Beds are comfortable. We had older people in the group but it was not a problem since there was a room in the main floor. We cooked, grilled in the home and we had everything we needed. 10 minute drive to restaurants. Thank you for hosting us Bluewater, you guys where great and made us feel very welcome.

A wonderful stay!

by Chrissy L
Beautiful home in an ideal location! House was just as pictured. Can\'t beat overlooking the ocean AND access to the beach. Very spacious kitchen, family room and bedrooms. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, flatware and glasses for our group of 12. Never thought we\'d need two dishwashers but definitely got used. Nice walk to downtown La Jolla and the cove. Overall great experience and would love to stay at this house again.

Better than the photos!

by Nancy M

Excellent property, loaded with amenities, and. perfect location. Bonus? Hotel style white bedding and super comfortable mattresses. Pool has child fencing if necessary. Path to beach is also childproof. Furnishings are comfortable as well as stylish. Easy to care for kitchen with 2 dishwashers and three trash receptacles. 48 in fridge holds everything plus a wine fridge. Could not be better managed as well.

Beach house

by James and Diane M

Property is fabulous. Property listing stated heated pool but did not clarify a fee of $100 a day and minimun of 3 days. We did call on 2nd day with issue of one TV and call wasn’t retuned until 1 1/2 days later. Issue with Code to open door but a tech responded pretty quickly.

The most incredible house you could ever hope to score in san diego. Absolutely dreamy. Cozy. Huge.

by Chris C

Right on a super secluded beach. Surf spot right put front. We cooked all meals there and got fish from peacador up the street. Place is a 10/10. It was the nicest location any of us had ever stayed in. Perfect for large group or 3-4 families.

The Playa Vista Beac...

by Nancy
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.

The location of the house is unbeatable

by Anthony
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.
February 2018

Our family would definately stay in this home again

by Michael
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.

House is great! My only negative is that there are a lot of burned out lightbulbs in garage and round pool

This house is better looking in person if you can believe that

by A.N from AZ
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.

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.
