Make La Jolla your next getaway—choose from 139 great vacation rentals

La Jolla, CA, is an ideal choice for those looking for a laid-back beach getaway in a comfortable beach rental. This charming oceanfront village's curved coastline spans seven gorgeous miles and offers visitors a mild, Mediterranean-like climate with sunny, mid-60s to mid-70s temperatures year-round. Beautiful and hilly, the town is surrounded on three sides by bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and if you keep your eyes out for harbor seals, you'll likely see them dotting the beaches and rocky areas that surround your La Jolla vacation rental.

Recent La Jolla vacation rental reviews

We love our old home town of La Jolla and enjoyed being back, largely do to this beautiful home! The views are incredible and the home's decor, amenities, and furnishings are all exquisite! The location can't be beat! You are close to the heart of the village and the ocean, yet sit above it all and tucked away in privacy! The property manager was highly attentive and welcoming! We can't wait to return and stay again!
Jen F. | Feb 2023
This is the nicest vacation stay we've experienced in our two years as nomadic WFHers. We've already booked to return later this year. Reality is even lovelier than the photos and living here has been a treat. The building management and VACASA local management are both outstanding, always responsive, respectful, and kind. The back deck, accessed by internal building stairway provides a rare and private place for sunsets, lunch or happy hours, and watching wildlife. This is a 5+ Star location on the best part of La Jolla coastline. The Perch!
John M. | Feb 2023
This is an excellent place to stay in a beautiful location. It had all the amenities and space we needed with easy access to the ocean. It felt like home! We will definitely book this place again the next time we are in La Jolla.

Where is La Jolla, CA?

Just 13 miles north of San Diego's thriving downtown area, La Jolla is nestled along the sandy shores of the sparkling Pacific Ocean in sunny southern California. This corner of the San Diego area has long been considered a destination in its own right, drawing visitors from San Diego proper as well as tourists from far beyond California.

Things to do in La Jolla, CA

If the earth's natural wonders are of interest to you, a visit to La Jolla Natural Park, with its 42 acres of flawless natural beauty, is a must. This beautiful natural area boasts a hike that promises stunning views of La Jolla Village and La Jolla Cove. And it's dog-friendly, too! Visit Birch Aquarium at The Scripps Institution of Oceanography for an up-close-and-personal view of fascinating seahorses. Have some fun traveling through the hall of fishes, and hang out to observe the daily scheduled feedings of sharks, lobsters, and other fish and invertebrates. 

Visit Sea World for endless hours of fun with rides, shows, and exhibits, or get right on the water at adventure-filled Mission Bay, home of the largest aquatic park in the U.S., and do some kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding.

La Jolla Playhouse offers a vibrant and diverse program sure to satisfy any theater-goer. In addition to the entertaining and thought-provoking plays you'll see at the theater itself, you can also see a production at its site-specific program, Without Walls, and catch a play at venues such as the Botanical Garden in Encinitas, Little Italy, or in the playhouse's very own parking lot. And if you're an art lover, you'll want to plan a day at the Museum of Contemporary Art to view exhibitions of unparalleled diversity, showcasing art across all mediums created since 1950. 

Beaches near La Jolla, CA

It isn't really a La Jolla vacation until you've enjoyed the sand and shore that surrounds your beach rental. Surfers are the mainstay at Windansea Beach, but you'll also find plenty of non-surfers at this secluded, stunning location. Visit La Jolla Cove, the most sought-after swimming, snorkeling, and diving location in the San Diego area. The water is calm and the area is protected, so you'll have lots of luck viewing rays, leopard sharks, and other beautiful sea creatures. And if a clothing-optional beach appeals to you, head over to Black's Beach, located in a secluded section of Torrey Pines. 

If you're traveling with kids, La Jolla Children's Pool and La Jolla Shores are excellent options for protected swimming, soft sand, and mellow waves. The Children's Pool boasts a healthy seal population, and La Jolla Shores has a pleasant picnic area at Kellogg Park, right next door. 

This dynamic town is a foodie heaven with a plethora of casual and fine dining establishments. From award-winning cuisine to laid-back taco takeout by the sand, you'll have dining choices for every palate. Make the short four-mile trek to the bustling beach town of Pacific Beach for a pub crawl. Or visit the popular Aero Club in the lively boardwalk beach town of Mission Beach for a night of pool and friendly socializing. 

A classic California community, La Jolla surrounds you with warm sun, sandy beaches, and entertaining activities at every turn, as well as heavenly food options, and plenty of culture, too. Book one of our lovely La Jolla vacation rentals today for fun in the sun and a chance to enjoy everything the San Diego area has to offer.
