About this listing

Lovely mid-century modern apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In a busy part of La Jolla, walking distance from La Jolla Shores beach and several nice restaurants. Garage space for one car.

The space

Our vacation home: newly remodeled with no expense spared. The 1400 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is a true luxury home, with the finest wood cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel kitchen appliances, large screen TV with a premium home theater system, beautiful custom tile work, blue granite countertops and soothing beach tone paint and color choices throughout.

These include glamorous light fixtures, paintings on canvas, signed prints from the famed Torrey Pines golf course down the road, polished antique wood furniture with clean lines, and a stunning stainless steel four poster bed in the romantic master bedroom. Chrome barstools with clear seats line the kitchen island, where you or a personal chef can use the full array of spices and gourmet cookware to prepare a fine meal.

This condo is in a fabulous location with an easy walk to the LJ Shores beach and restaurants. The condo is well kept and was a pleasure to stay in. There was a bit of street noise, but this was remedied by keeping the street-facing windows closed at night.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. Beds are super comfy, great kitchen and living room, and ample amenities provided. The condo grounds and pool were well maintained and it was great to have a garage to park in. The location is fantastic, with only a 10 minute walk to La Jolla Shores beach and 30 minute walk to the Village of La Jolla as well as easy freeway access. The only negative thing about the condo is that it sits on an incredibly loud, busy street and the master bedroom faces the street, so sleeping with the windows open is noisy. With the windows closed and the fan running it was much improved, but if you are a light sleeper this might be a consideration. Overall an excellent experience – Vara is a great host and the property is beautiful.

We're a family of four from the Bay Area. We love the snow and sand; hence vacation properties in La Jolla and Kirkwood.

What a recent guest said about our La Jolla place:
"It was obviously your home, and not just an empty, cold rental. Everything was very high quality and comfortable from the linens to the furniture to the dishes in the kitchen. It felt like we were staying with friends, and the user guide was very helpful."
