Luxurious Home w/ Pool & View
We purchased this custom craftsman (“arts and crafts” style) home in May 2013, because we loved its unique character, serene feel, and unobstructed eastern view. We have furnished it with top quality pieces and every amenity, paying close attenti …
Good-sized house, tastefully decorated, in a very nice neighborhood (close to an unbelievably wealthy neighborhood). Large patio, nice well-kept pool and hot tub, large gas BBQ. Great view, probably 30-40 miles including mountains in the distance on a clear day. Big gourmet kitchen, well-equipped. Game room in the garage with a quality pool table. Everything was clean and in very good shape. The landlord stopped by on the day we arrived to see if there was anything we needed, and was easily reachable when we couldn't figure out the cable box.
This place could fit a pretty big group with the kitchen and large great room. The dining table would be good for at least 16 people. We had dinner for 12 people at one time without any crowding. There was more than enough seating by the pool for all of us.
We use VRBO properties frequently, and this one definitely ranks in the top 10% of places that we have rented in the past. Can't go wrong here!
This was a beautiful house, that my family and I loved. The house is well equipped and everything is new. It got very hot outside one day, but the house stayed cool. The pool and jacuzzi were nice and warm. I loved reading my book in the backyard, where it was tranquil. The owner was such a sweetie, she recommended places to go, checked in with us to make sure we were enjoying our vacation, and asked if there was anything we wanted for the home. My kids loved Belmont park and sea world, while my favorite was kayaking in La Jolla shores, all of which the owner recommended to us. If I ever want to go to La Jolla again I will definitely be staying here again.
Laura, Thanks so much for everything. We have rented homes nine times through VRBO and your house was the best so far!! The pool area was key!! Between the fire pit, jacuzzi, pool, BBQ and games, all three generations were happy and together. Really appreciated your activity recommendations and groupon links. My 92 year old mother had a blast paddleboarding with the little ones!! Thanks so much for everything.
Stayed at this lovely vacation home in La Jolla and can't say enough nice things about it. It's in a great location, near lots of beaches and restaurants etc. The house itself is roomy, loved the lay out, the pool out back and Jacuzzi were clean and fun. Plenty of amenities included (loved the pool table in the garage) and it was convenient for shopping and the highways. Even though it's above the highway you can't really hear the cars/noise, no more than living on any other street tbh. Overall I strongly recommend this place, me and my party enjoyed ourselves immensely and the owners went out of their way to make everything comfortable for us.
- Attentive owner (came over when the TV stopped working, only to discover that the wire was not plugged in)
- Great location, convenient to everything
- Nice view. Not the ocean, but the sunrise is beautiful over the desert.
- Really nice peaceful feel to the house. Very relaxing.
- Beautifully furnished, everything is incredibly comfortable. (I could literally live in the sofa!)
- Owner gave us great tips for what to see/do, things that were not typically tourist traps.
There is a huge, very steep hill behind the house. I'm not sure I would want to have young active kids exploring that hill. At the bottom of the hill, there is the highway, I-5. We could not hear any noise from inside the house. It is very faint outside the house, but it is audible. With the jacuzzi on, we could not hear it.
You need to drive to everything. There are no restaurants or shops within walking distance.
We recently stayed at this property and were some what disappointed. The location of this property sitting right above the I5 motorway ruined our holiday. the address - Desert View?? no mnotorway and industrial estate view. We found it very noisy so therefore didn't use the garden and swimming pool too much as it was not relaxing. It was Impossible to sleep with the windows open, so we were very warm, although the owner did buy us one fan.
The kitchen was not terribly well equipt but the house was large and spacious
We had such a great experience in LaJolla. The design and layout of the house created the right atmosphere for a family gathering. With three generations sharing space, everyone was comfortable and enjoyed our time together whether cooking on the grill and emjoying the pool/spa/ fire pit or trips to the beach and other surrounding sites!
We rented this home two weeks after the owner purchased the home and it was still in the process of being furnished. We only used 3 of the bedrooms (Laura, the owner, had told me the others would not be ready), so we cannot comment on the entire house. The house was beautiful, and the furniture was really top notch. I cannot stress this enough. This is not a typical rental unit. It is furnished much nicer than my home!!
Before we rented, we were concerned about road noise, as google maps shows the property as being right next to the highway. But we were happy to find that the highway is so far below the home, that there was no noise. When we walked out in the back, we could hear it, but only very slightly. The house has a very peaceful, relaxing feel to it.
It is the most kid-friendly place we have stayed at. My kids (ages 8-16) enjoyed the pool, pool table, surf board, bogey board, and board games.

Ocean & Sunset Views, Walk to Beach.
Welcome and we hope you enjoy our Ocean View Cardiff Beach home. We truly are lucky to be in one of Cardiff’s sweet spots. Our Ocean Views are massive! You can watch Dolphins playing in the surf around 5 pm nightly.
Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has 2 King beds, 1 Queen & 1 Twin. Our kitchen is fully equipped for pretty much anything you will want to grill up. You will enjoy dining out on our ocean view patio. You will want to eat all your meals here!! It is hard to find a better view at any of the local coastal restaurants…so, we typically cook at home.
The living space is spacious and comfortable with lots of windows, a fireplace, flat screen TV, DVDs, surround sound. Stay home and relax. There is also a game room equipped with air hockey and a large backyard with a nice lawn for outdoor recreation.
It takes minutes to walk down to the beach for a nice walk in the sand or walk, run or bike along the boardwalk that runs parallel with the shore.
