This home is in a nice location, walking distance to the beach. NO BEACH TOWELS are provided, so plan on bringing your own or buying them when you get there. Also there are not that many towels for showering, very limited. There is no AC which is typical of the area. We were comfortable after opening all the windows and setting up fans, but it was only 75 when we were there. It is right next to a high school, which I was worried may be an issue, but it was not. Even on a Friday night with sports going on at the school, we barely even noticed and were not bothered by noise or anything. This AirBnB is run by a property management company, so if you are expecting to be able to talk to the owners about a late check out or any other issues, that won't happen. Be prepared to leave at 10 AM "ON THE DOT" as instructed! Other places I have stayed are more flexible in that regard. Also, for $275 cleaning, I wouldn't think I would be asked to do the dishes and take out the trash myself. We only used a few glasses and coffe cups, so no big deal, but the cleaning fee is high for the size of the home in my opinion. All in all a nice place, and would be great set up for a family with small kids, lots of books, toys, even Blu rays. The kitchen has great appliances, so if you were there for a longer stay, it would be nice kitchen to cook in, and there is a great BBQ and outdoor covered patio.

Krista's house is just fantastic. Has a spacious and bright indoors and a great garden with BBQ and other amenities. We had a great time with friends. Will highly recommend and will stay here again if back in San Diego.

Nice charming home in ideal La Jolla location. Short walk to the beach, shops, etc. The home is old so don't expect anything fancy but it's comfortable and easily slept 7. Management company was very easy to work with too! Would recommend it.

Great house for families. Especially the bunk bed for the children. The old piano makes the place like a family home, very much different than staying at a hotel ! We loved our stay in this house where we felt "at home". The kitchen (if you like to cook like me) is terrific ! Didn't get a chance to try the barbecue. The house is very clean, especially the rooms and batherooms. It' a quiet neibourhood near a high school. If you have a car easy to go get some food at stores like Vons, Ralphs, or Trader Joes. We loved simple Mexican food nearby at Taco Stand. Something to note is that there is no heater (it can get cold at night but there are big blankets), and no aircon for summertime, so it might get hot. But because the weather was good when we were there, this was not to much of a problem for us. The team at Mission Sands was very reactive before and during our stay when we had a problem with our baby, they fixed it quite quickly so we thank them very very much for that !! Maybe we would have like to meet someone at entering the house, but afterall I have to say it was not too much of a problem, it would just have been nice to meet you guys to thank you in person. We have some good memories there and would definitly come back in a few years when our kids have grown up. Cheers.

This is a fabulous, large, family friendly house. Location is great - walk to the store, restaurants, and the beach. As a bonus the kitchen is well outfitted and the outdoor BBQ is really nice. Perfect for a relaxing vacation!

I am the office manager for Mission Sands Vacation Rentals & Sales where we currently maintain and manage over 80 properties in the Mission Beach/Pacific Beach/La Jolla area.

I live locally and recently graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management. Residing just a mile from the beach, I dedicate most my leisure time outdoors in the warm sun on my beach cruiser and on the bay kayaking.

Please feel free to explore our Mission Sands website and contact me if you have any questions and I will be more than happy to assist you.
