“2 Minutes to the Beach!”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

We stayed at David’s vacation house the weekend of March 18th with our four young children and had a great time! We arrived around midnight after driving from Disneyland to San Diego, and it was so nice to be able to walk into the home and put each child into their own comfortable bed, complete with white noise machines and blinds. Our kids slept great and consequently we slept great! The house has everything a family could need, from a high chair to a crib, as well as comforts for adults such as a big screen TV (with Netflix!) and fully-stocked kitchen including an espresso machine. The bathrooms are all recently remodeled with modern fixtures and rainforest showers, and the upper deck has a great view of the ocean. The best part is that it’s just a 2 minute Uber/Lyft ride to the beautiful La Jolla shores beach. We will be back soon for sure!

“Great location in La Jolla and a beautiful home with wonderful views.”

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful time in this great house. Large windows let in the sunlight and you see the ocean and the lush vegetation all around the house. We walked to downtown La Jolla many times to shop or to go out to lunch or dinner. We entertained friends on the large patio, with large outdoor TV and a Great BBQ grill. The home easily accommodated our family group of 8 people with room to spare.

“Graduation Party I won't Forget”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This past weekend was my college graduation and I spent a few months looking for the perfect place to host my graduation party. I had narrowed the search down to Pacific Beach or La Jolla but immediately stopped looking after finding this place. David was incredibly nice and accommodating, even allowing us to stay an extra night upon short notice. He thoroughly walked us through the house and explained many features that may have stumped guests, like how to turn on the TV and operate appliances. The house itself is unique, completely made of wood and provides a very indoor/outdoor feeling with all of the windows. I was searching for a place with a great backyard or patio space because I wanted to celebrate out in the beautiful San Diego sun. 1821 Torrey Pines delivered! The backyard yard had ample seating, heating lamps, barbecue, and even a flat screen TV! On top of this beautiful space there was a viewing balcony situated above the property which gave some of the bests views in all of La Jolla. The location of the house is perfect, incredibly close to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, but also is well equipped to host a party in or prepare a meal to dine in. The kitchen was spacious and modern with enough cutlery, plates, and serving dishes to feed an army in a very stylish way! Overall I was very satisfied with the location of the house and the amenities it provided. I will always think back to my graduation party and remember the breathtaking sunset from the viewing deck, the comfy beds, and the perfect outdoor space.

“Beautiful architecture, great location, wonderful owner”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The Woodhouse is an amazing, cozy property that is very conveniently located. The house is spacious without feeling overwhelming, the beds are super-comfortable, and the bathrooms modern without being pretentious. The kitchen is very well stocked with basics and tools. The view from the deck area is very nice, and you're just a short walk from the beach and a longer walk/very short drive from restaurant row and shopping.

The owners are super-organized and very responsive to any needs, insisting that we call if anything isn't perfectly, exactly right.

It was the perfect location for our business planning meeting, allowing us the space to all get together, while providing us with plenty of comfort.

One tip: Believe your GPS when you go to the house - it has its own turn lane on the main road. I had trouble believing it at first, but it makes it very easy to get in and out of the road.
