Our family of 5 (kids 10, 8, 5) loved this house. It’s historic built in 1920s which we found charming, but layout is a bit quirky. The master bedroom and the room with 2 twin beds are pretty close together, with a bathroom in between, but the 3 rd bedroom with a full size bed is tucked away behind the kitchen down a little hallway so even though our 3 kids would have fit better in that bed, they were scared to be that far away from us. The 4 th bedroom which we didn’t need is actually outside across the back patio. Location is great, you can see the ocean from the front yard, and we did walk from house to La Jolla tide pools and the children’s beach and back with the kids one day. It’s fun to see all the different houses along the way, total walked about 3 miles but that was meandering along the way. Another day we walked south along the beach path towards bird rock (path does end and you have to walk along the street at end). We cooked most all meals at house, there is everything you need with lots of spices, pots, pans, toaster, blender, coffee maker with filters. There were generous amounts of supplies - trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, sponges. Not like some rentals where they give you just 2 dishwashing packets. There was laundry detergent, lots of towels, including beach towels. Driving to the Scripps aquarium took 20 min, zoo/balboa park 20 min, Coronado 35 min, ocean beach 15 min. We ate in La Jolla village one night, in bird rock once, and we found the vibe in bird rock more fun for kids. We watched DVD movies with kids a few nights- if anything could be better, a wider selection of kid friendly movies would be nice. But the playing cards and kids books were a nice surprise. Overall, I thought this house was a great find and better than the pictures online made it seem. The house is very bright so it’s easy to be up early for outings. Kids often didn’t want to stop playing at the house to leave for outings (the front yard grassy area was a big hit). We would definitely stay here again!
