House Rules
No smoking
Check in is anytime after 4PM

1. Please no smoking inside the cottage. Smoking is allowed on the private, back deck, only.

2. Quiet hours are from 9pm weekdays, and 10pm weekends. This cottage would not be appropriate for loud parties.

3. Please do not pull your car to the main, side gate of the cottage complex, to unload your luggage before parking. This is a private business driveway, and we will get fined. If you need to unload your luggage before parking, you can stop in the alley, and go through the back gate, if it's open. Otherwise, your parking space is only steps away.

3. The laundry is not available for use after 8pm, or before 8am. Thank you for respecting this, since the laundry is located beside another resident's cottage.

4. Please do not leave any personal belongings outside in the common area, or on the front porch of the cottage. Wet towels from the beach can be hung to dry in the bathroom, or on the back deck.

We appreciate you following these rules, to keep our complex, and the other residents happy in their sacred, special place they call home!

La Jolla Beach Chic Retreat is a very nice unit, a good size, well appointed and equipped and tastefully decorated. It has a good location near the center of La Jolla village, right next to Pannikin (real great coffee) and steps from Harry's Coffee Shop as well as the Vons grocery store. Its about a 15min walk down to the La Jolla Cove and a bit further to the Marine Drive beach (directly west down Pearl street). Although we did not meet Jennifer in person, she was a great host, who was very responsive and available to contact via the Airbnb app messaging function to help out with any questions we had. Overall the space was great, and the place had everything our family of 4 needed to cook, and live for a week. The BBQ with a small deck table at the back was great. The unit suited our family well - the combination of the air mattress and "sleeper" couch was good for our two boys (ages 11 & 14). For adults it may be different. We just stored the inflated air mattress in the bedroom, standing on its side against the wall, during the day and there was ample space for us to lounge around and take afternoon naps. The kids loved the Hulu and Netflix, so no complaints there. The unit includes 2 beach cruiser bikes which in the end we only used once. After riding down to the La Jolla shores beach the first day, we realized that commuting to and from the beaches (we swam mostly at La Jolla Shores) on the bikes, would not work with all the hills and carting all our beach stuff with us every day. So in the end we rented a car for the week and used that to see more of the area. Overall, I would recommend this unit to anyone visiting La Jolla.. Thanks Jennifer

Very nice place. Clean and cozy. Beautifully decorated. Location was excellent. Having a parking spot and 2 bikes was a bonus. Check-in and check-out process was easy. Communication with Jen was a breeze. Highly recommended!

Jennifer's place ia truly a home away from home. It was very clean, the bed was super comfortable, and all amenities (plenty of towels, full kitchenware, etc.) were provided. The supermarket was literally a 3 minute- walk from the cottage and I was able to buy groceries and cook myself dinner everyday like I normally do at home. Having a designated parking spot all to myself was a plus. La Jolla is a very safe, upscale, yet very chill neighborhood and Jennifer's place is definitely the cherry on top. Much love and thanks from Korea

Jennifer's cottage is exactly as advertised - immaculately clean, well-appointed, and in the most convenient location. Communication with Jen was fabulous, and she bent over backwards to accommodate us, including letting us drop off our bags well before our check-in time. The parking spot behind the cottage is crucial, and the lockbox key situation made check-in and check-out a breeze. Our only complaint was that the sleeping situation for four people was less than stellar. The futon was uncomfortable and very creaky, and without A/C on this unusually humid weekend, we unfortunately weren't able to sleep at all. Would absolutely stay here if it's just two people next time, but if you have four adults, you're better off booking a hotel.

We loved Jennifer's place! It is well located in La Jolla, a short walk to many nice places. We walked to Marine St. Beach to watch the sunset, to La Jolla Cove to see the sea lions, and there are also many nice restaurants, cafes and a good supermarket just 2 minutes away. The place was super clean and had everything we needed. Jennifer really pays attention to details and provide everything necessary to make the guests feel welcolme. There is a good bedroom with a comfortable bed, and our kids loved the sofa bed in the living room. Shower was really nice and kitchen was ok to arrange simple meals. We also used the laundry facilities and appreciate that Jennifer provided the products for that. It was great to have a parking space, so that we didn't have to worry about that. And communication was just perfect! Thank you Jennifer for letting us stay at your place! We loved it!
