Beautiful and luxurious Spanish colonial masterpiece w/ private hot tub

Vacation in luxury in this beautiful La Jolla vacation rental. Modeled after a Spanish colonial masterpiece, and recently completed in 2008, this home is sure to impress with large spacious rooms and gorgeous views. Professionally decorated and beautifully furnished by a La Jolla designer, this home is sure to welcome all to beautiful Southern California in style!

This lovely home sits in the foothills of Mount Soledad, only fifteen minutes from La Jolla proper and the beach. Amazing views and access to the best of La Jolla makes this property a treasure.
This single level home is a mini-paradise: a red stucco facade with sweeping curves, French doors, an outside courtyard set for your next cookout, fountains, and gardens bursting with Birds of Paradise and Jasmine. Enjoy fresh fruit all summer long - avocados, pomegranate, all types of citrus, plums, peaches, nectarines, blackberries and raspberries.

This home is grand with contrasting yellows and dark woods, ornate details, and a cozy atmosphere. The family room is made to kick back in; there's a cozy sectional couch that accommodates all, to either watch TV or gather around a large round corner fireplace. Enjoy amenities like cable, TiVo, and Sirius XM Radio. The living room is another place to relax in large overstuffed sofa and chairs also around a second fireplace. Beautiful hand-carved stone, imported talavera tile, wood floors, hand-forged rod iron and custom interior plaster help to create the warmth of the beautifully appointed hacienda.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with professional appliances including double ovens, a six-burner stove top and griddle, and a full-sized freezer and refrigerator. This kitchen is where breakfasts of champions are made! This home has plenty of places to spread out: the kitchen bar seats up to six, and there is a cozy bistro table. The dining room seats six banquet style, and opens up to the courtyard where there are two outdoor seating arrangements that seat up to eight each. Due to La Jolla's incredible climate, you can dine outside year round!

The master suite provides a quiet, romantic getaway within your getaway: enjoy the fireplace, a king bed, the city skyline at night and an incredible sunrise every morning. The spacious master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, a walk in shower with three heads, and two vanities to spread out across. There's also a wine cooler, coffee station and plasma TV. There is ample storage to keep your space tidy.

There are three more bedrooms with queen beds that are large and spacious, with TVs, walk-in closets and custom furnishings, plus a den/office space with twin beds for the worker-bee or the younger members of your group. This home can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests (10 comfortably).

Enjoy the entirety of La Jolla while you stay here: drive to town and walk to the beach for surfing and seashell gathering, or enjoy Southern California's eclectic shops, art galleries, and fine cuisine. Take a hike to the top of Mt. Soledad to the famous cross, or enjoy a day at the Soledad Natural Park. Putt a few holes at the La Jolla Country Club, or grab your book, pick an orange from a tree in your backyard, and soak up that Southern California sun in your own piece of paradise.

Loved everything about the house. Linens, blankets, spa towels provided, The kitchen stocked with all necessities which made our stay even better!
Ernest M. Nov 2019
This house was okay for my wife and I. The fountains soothing noise, which blocked the road noise, lasted for three hours. Then it drained completely and didn’t work any longer. There were ants, spiders, and centipedes in the master bath, and my wife and I were both bitten by ants while in the tub, as well as spiders while we slept in bed. The master has no blinds, just broken see through shades, so we were up every morning at 6:15 when the sun was directly shining through the master window. Also, the hot-tub had an any colony living around it, and the one time we tried to use the hot-tub, my friends children all were bitten, as it was evening and we couldn’t see the huge line of ants heading from the crack in the support wall directly to the hot tub. Also, with your driveway, we had an suv and still scrapped our front bumper every single time we parked in the driveway. The interior was lovely minus all the spiders webs hanging from everywhere when we arrived. I spent some time cleaning and then stopped on account of being disheartening to pay what we paid and have it presented that way. Cest la vie, I hope this helps in your choice
Manager response:
Hi, Ernest! We are sorry to see you had some disappointments with your visit. The owner has fixed the fountain, we have sprayed for ants, and the owner does have plans to change the blinds out. We hope to see you again!
Harold F. Sep 2019
Location was good and property was good size. The hot tub was not working and there was insufficient adjustment for this major issue. The property needs maintenance and there is a need for an exterminator to eliminate spiders, ants and other bugs.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Harold. We do spray for pests, and we hope the compensation offered for the lack of hot tub shows our desire to care for our guests. We hope to have another chance to host you again!

the house has a great location to explore San Diego.
Danny N. Aug 2019
The house was really roomy and spacious for our reunion. It had amazing views. We would definitely stay here again.
todd h. Mar 2019
Had a great time in this perfect property. Would totally recommend
Sean W. Feb 2019
This is a beautiful house in a gorgeous area just north of San Diego. The house has a terrific vibe with an amazing old world Spanish theme throughout. The views off the deck are stunning and the location is convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the San Diego area.
Andrea H. Jan 2019
This house was breathtakingly Gorgeous with an incredible view over the city! Even though it rained most of our trip the location made up for it and was a perfect getaway
Nathan G. Dec 2018
Loved the location, House was perfect! Beautiful finishes and a very inviting atmosphere for our whole crew. Thanks!
Ann T. Dec 2018
The. Views and uniqueness of the home. Space to spread out. Very cozy in the evening with indoor and outdoor fireplace
Rebecca R. Oct 2018
Our group of six found this to be a wonderful home with everything we wanted. Spacious indoors and great outdoor living. The hot tub was great, but the outdoor wood burning fireplace one evening was superb. The views throughout the day and into the night were mesmerizing.
Chere F. Aug 2018
Our family of six had plenty of room in this home! It was centrally located for what we needed. There were issues with lights and locks...those were not easy to figure out and many bulbs were out when we arrived. . Ana, the Property Manager, was responsive to our request for replacement light bulbs throughout the home but some were not fixed or the switches eluded us... The stereo and tv systems were difficult to figure out even with instructions. (That’s not why we were there but it would have been great to be able to access the XM system as it’s a great perk!) The kitchen and patio were amazing and we loved the home! It just could have used some kitchen essentials, a few more towels for the baths, etc.
mark h. Jul 2018
The house was great. Eclectic furnishings. Great vibe
S.V. V. Jun 2018
We rented this house during UCSD graduation weekend. Very nicely appointed, room for 2 or 3 families.
Matthew C. May 2018
This is a fantastic place to stay! Super close to everything. Would love to come here again.
Harold H. May 2018
This is a beautiful home!We loved the patio and the flow of this home, it was easy for all our family to interact, great kitchen and well stocked for our large family, cooking for 12 was a breeze! early morning coffee on the patio was serene, will definitely be back.
Jessica A. Apr 2018
Everything is just perfect.
Brian J. Apr 2018
The house is beautiful and located near beach areas. Kitchen is top-notch and great if you love cooking. The road the house is on can get busy and noisy at times if you say in the room on the road side but can’t hear anything in the main areas. WiFi is spotty and the main TV only had a few channels. Overall a great place, we enjoyed our vacation there.
Sachin S. Apr 2018
Great attention to detail, breathtaking views, conveniently located in La Jolla. Don't hesitate to book this property.
Cecilia H. Apr 2018
So beautiful and plenty of room for three families!!
Zachary W. Feb 2018
The place was a lot of fun - it sits in the hills with a beautiful view of the surrounding area and is stocked with a nice collection of art, books, and furniture that makes it feel more like a home than just a place to stay. As advertised, it came with all the beds, towels, and kitchenware necessary to house 10 people. Additionally, we got to enjoy the grill and hot tub.

The only real downside was that the place isn't really walking distance from anything, but we knew that beforehand and prepared accordingly. I imagine it'd be a great place for a group of people who like to bike as its surrounded with nice roads, hills, and scenery.
Stephen H. Dec 2017
Enjoyed the house. Minor comments are that management company should check for burned out lights - two in master bedroom . I have a remote control gas fireplace at my home and could not get yours in master to work. I think the pilot light may have needed to be lit. While you had extensive audio video and streaming equipment, we also have U verse at our house and could get the guide, but it appeared all normal channels were not subscribed to. We didn’t come to La Jolla to watch TV, but it would have been nice to watch bowl game on ESPN. Overall it was a very nice house.
Manager response:
We have inspected the fireplace and found it to be working. Guests are always welcome to contact us if they need assistance with the amenities. The owner only provides basic TV channels. We apologize if this was a disappointment. The light bulbs have been replaced. Thank you!

Fredrik A. Jun 2017
Very nice house and location. Perfect for a couple of families travelling together. Loved the La Jolla beaches and restaurants.
Manuel R. Jun 2017
This property is extremely beautiful with a nice view of the city , there is too much to say about this property. I'm just gong to kee it very simple , you will fall in love and I will definitely go back and also recommend this place.
James Y. Jun 2017
Great experience, clean and friendly area. Location is perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for my little get away with friends. Thank you Vacasa and Ana for helping me get this amazing place and amazing experience.
Leandra A. May 2017
Beautiful house! Just perfect! :)
Kent P. May 2017
We stayed a few nights with our two families and were worried about the young kids wrecking the nice home, but it was actually pretty baby and kid proof. The design of the home was neat and the layout allowed the two families to have their own spaces. The views were good and the home was plentifully furnished, except that we had 13 total and some people were sleeping on couches and on the floor (we found air mattresses but had no way to blow them up). The house in general seems to be a bit behind on upkeep, but it was still beautiful and we felt like we got to live the wealthy lifestyle for time. Much better than staying in a hotel!
Starbuck T. Apr 2017
We had a great stay at the Villa. Close to all amenities. We'd stay here again guaranteed. Loved the view and all the furnishings!
Shelby S. Apr 2017
This house is impeccable! It looks just like the photos! I highly recommend gathering a group of friends/family here. The terrace out back is one of my favorite elements. The kitchen is very well-stocked and complete with updated appliances and plenty of space. We cooked several meals in the house and enjoyed them out back since there is enough room for everybody! The views from the back are incomparable. Very close proximity to downtown as well as some pristine beaches. The furniture is also much more comfortable than it looks in the photos. The house has clearly been inspired by Spain, and it felt like we were there! I cannot recommend the house enough -- it is worth every penny.
Ryan S. Mar 2017
Great property- hot tub was broken and Tv system was too difficult to figure out,but the property was beautiful and the house was gorgeous.
Jamie L. Sep 2015
The house is gorgeous. My favorite parts were the kitchen and master bath. We had 12 ladies stay and it was a bit crowded when it came to sleeping space. I think 10 would be ideal in this house. The view is amazing.
Rachel C. May 2015
I recently booked this property to accommodate visiting relatives and found the size of the home to be very spacious. The home is equipped with extra linens and towels, as well as plentiful dishes and utensils. The local manager was also very helpful and accommodating.

I agree with the previous reviews regarding the electronics; however, they are not too difficult to figure out.

I had a pleasant experience staying at this home and would stay here again.
Joan D. Apr 2015
Perfect getaway for our extended family and younger (ages 7 - 13) kids! The house was amazing...the gourmet kitchen was enjoyable to use. The local contact stopped by for a very small request and gave us helpful local hints which made our stay very special.
Terence S. Apr 2015
This home was exactly as described and very true to the pictures. Just minutes from a grocery store and Sea World. Very quiet street and amazing view.

Wonderful kitchen range and hood
Large living space for guests
Quiet neighborhood

Weak Wifi
Only basic cable channels (only 10 with 3 or 4 in spanish, however there were DVD's available to watch)

Overall, it was a great experience. We loved the house and would definitely rent again if we're ever in the area.
Stephen A. Apr 2015
First off, it needs to be said that this is a beautiful home. Clearly a lot of thought was put in to the design of the house. It felt like you were staying in an 18th century Mexican villa. Except with flat screen TVs. The views from the patio were amazing and of course the weather was perfect. I could nitpick on a few things. The electronics were a little confusing to figure out and the furnishings are almost too fancy. But these are minor issues in my opinion. Sit out on the patio and enjoy dinner or relax in the jacuzzi and take in the great views of the surrounding area. Very relaxing. Would definitely stay here again.
Maria V. Jan 2015
we had a lovely stay at this house. Very clean, very grand house. Impressive kitchen. beds are very good. Enough privacy for 2 families to enjoy a family vacation together. Spectacular mountain views. Close to the beaches and to the airport.
Karen S. Dec 2014
Our family enjoyed our stay here very much. We rented the home over Christmas and enjoyed the large kitchen and professional appliances. We felt the bedrooms were very spacious and allowed individuals plenty of space. The floor plan also has plenty of space to get away if you want to be alone as well as large areas if you your family wants to gather together. I would recommend this home for a larger family gathering.
Eric B. Nov 2014
This is an extremely impressive home, and was perfect for our family reunion.
Shishir M. Oct 2014
We had a wonderful time at this spanish villa. For those who are planning to stay in that area, this house offers a great place to stay and relax.
