-- Dining on chilly fall evenings next to a cozy indoor fireplace
Over the years, the house has been extensively remodeled and enlarged. Its post-modern style features clean, unconventional lines, with rooms opening to the sun and warm breezes that are the norm in San Diego. The influence of our travels in Asia, Africa, and South America can be found throughout.
Beds include a king-sized Tempurpedic mattress in the master bedroom. One of the two main guest rooms has a queen-size bed, while the other has a double bed. The family room features a 65-inch smart TV and opens to the pond and garden. The house also includes two home offices; high-speed wireless internet is accessible everywhere.
Outside, the garden is filled with fruit trees (orange, tangerine, peach, lemon, lime, grapefruit, pomegranate, fig, avocado, apricot, cherry, mango, papaya, and banana!) as well as flowers and tropical vines that make it a paradise throughout the year. Shaded patios and an outdoor barbecue enhance the feeling of being in a private oasis. Most unusual is our pond and water garden, which we created from our old swimming pool in late 2021. Sitting next to the aquatic plants and listening to the trickling melody created by the small waterfall can be a soothing and mesmerizing experience. Although it is possible to take dips in the pond, it is not heated like a swimming pool and thus is usually fairly chilly.
Because the pond is unfenced, we do not exchange our home with groups that include children under the age of 5. Please include the ages of your non-adult guests in your request for a trade.
The garden and pond will be maintained by professionals during your visit, and our housekeeper will clean after you go.
What you will love about this neighborhood
The Bird Rock area within La Jolla is one of San Diego's most desirable neighborhoods. Our quiet street is at the heart of a vibrant, dynamic community. From our front door, you can quickly walk to great surfing, swimming, and tidepooling spots, as well as a gourmet grocery store, restaurants, wine stores, coffee shops, a drugstore, hardware store, hair and nail salons, and additional services.
You can also use our bicycles to explore the larger community. We're minutes away from an oceanfront boardwalk that extends for two and a half miles down to the Belmont Park amusement center and Mission Bay Park.
Within easy driving distance, you can take advantage of San Diego sights including La Jolla Cove, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Balboa Park, The San Diego Wild Animal Park, Legoland, and much more. Slightly farther away are Disneyland (90 minutes), the Mexican border (40), the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, (90), and greater Los Angeles (2-3 hours.)
There is ample street parking.
