Forget the rest, you've found the best! Very rare historic La Jolla Beach Cottage in an incredible location. Wonderful ocean views await and the beach is just steps away from this beautifully finished vacation rental. The home is on Ocean Lane between Coast Boulevard and Prospect St. right in the very heart of the Village of La Jolla.
Step inside this 1930's era beach cottage and prepare to be impressed. The home underwent a floor to ceiling renovation in 2008 and then all new furnishings in 2012. Some of the highlights include hardwood flooring, a wood finished cathedral ceiling offset by remote controlled skylights that open for a sunroof effect. Bay windows offer dramatic ocean views from the living room, dining area and the master suite. Off the master suite is the bathroom with tub/shower combo that includes some special features: A steam shower, Jacuzzi tub and one- way privacy glass, so you can take a nice warm soak while gazing at the waves just off La Jolla Cove. The kitchen is something special as well; fully stocked with all the cookware, appliances and dishes needed to prepare your favorite delicious meals, along with plenty of counter-space and period inspired Northstar Refrigerator and Convection oven.
In the living room there is a gas fireplace to warm the evenings along with a comfy couch where you can relax and watch your favorite shows, including HBO, on the flat screen HDTV. Or if you'd like to spend a lazy day in bed, there's a Flat screen in the master as well, but the ocean views may be too distracting!
Guests at Casa de las Olas can take a brief stroll down to the ocean and La Jolla Cove. Extraordinarily beautiful, La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed shorelines in Southern California. Because it is a protected Ecological Reserve, marine wildlife abounds. Water visibility at the Cove can sometimes exceed 30 feet, making it a very popular spot for Scuba, snorkeling and kayaking.
Once you've had your fill of the spectacular sights and sounds of the coast, take a stroll through The Village. The Village is a bustling business district offering world class dining, one-of-a-kind boutiques, art galleries, jewelry shops and romantic, old world hotels. The surrounding residential community is a charming mix of turn-of-the-century Spanish architecture, eccentric modern designs and everything in-between.
Shopping in La Jolla tends toward the unusual and upscale; designer fashions, expensive jewelry, ethnic artifacts, priceless antiques, oriental rugs and exotic cars. Prospect Street is ground zero for fine-dining, including many five star options perched overlooking the ocean. The most popular offerings are fresh seafood and Mexican cuisine, but you can find anything from scrambled eggs to sushi among the many and varied eateries throughout La Jolla. Ask your Bluewater Concierge for suggestions. We'lll find just the right place for your palette!
With its spectacular coastline, temperate climate and dramatic views, it's no wonder that La Jolla was one of the first San Diego neighborhoods to be settled, and has since become home to some of the most prized and expensive real estate in the nation. Surrounded on three sides by the sea and backed by the steep slopes of Mt. Soledad, La Jolla has a Mediterranean feel and enjoys a unique microclimate which rarely drops below 50 degrees or exceeds 90 degrees.
We welcome you to experience all that La Jolla has to offer and be our guest at Casa de las Olas.
