Why Liza Szabo chose La Jolla
La Jolla was where we both wanted to live our whole lives. I had post cards in my office in colorado when I was 22, promising that one day I would live there. When first married we saved up enough money to buy a home by our most loved beach, Wind N Sea also voted top ten beaches in the world and walk to it by foot along with the village atmosphere of dining, shops, parks, scenic trails and perfect weather. We now can return again and again to our property while still enjoying our other beach home, hawaii or yosemite. Our dream come true to have beach, moutains and tropical areas. We hope to retire in the village, wind n sea beach home and in the meantime get joy out of sharing it with other vacationers. come see the beauty of walking to all at the JEWEL our La Jolla Wind n Sea Beach home and cottage. Rent one or both together, separated double r2 lot.

Beautiful private hideaway
Property owners were 100% attentive to making sure we arrived and could get in to the property via communication with the app. Responsive and respectful of our time. The property itself was quaint, tidy, and comfy... Tucked away off the main road too, so it was quiet and relaxing.
Everything was withing walking distance from the place beach, restaurants, cafes. Great place to vacation if you're visiting La Jolla!
Perfect Location and accommodating Home!
We loved our family time spent at this beautiful and charming home. Walked to the beach, entertained family in the backyard, enjoyed playing poker around the dining room table and visiting the sites from this Gem of a home.
Just a short walk to the beach!
We had a lovely stay in Liza's beach cottage. It was in a great location - about a 10 min walk to the beach as well as restaurants.
Liza was a responsive and considerate host. She was concerned for our comfort since it was unseasonably hot. (We had a great time despite the heat!) Liza also provided stuff for the beach, i.e. towels, fold up chair, etc. so we could lounged all day on the sand and in the water.
Thank you, Liza!
Positives outweighed negatives
First the good....This property was in a fantastic location. It was extremely quiet and had a great park around the corner. Easy walk to the beach. Nice upscale neighborhood . There was a little confusion about parking in the driveway but there was more than adequate street parking.
The condo was well equipped with dishes, glasses, utensils, etc.
The bed and futon were extremely comfortable.
Now the negatives. ..owner needs to tell people in the listing about the defective lockbox I had to call her to find out how to get the key out. She did respond in a timely fashion. Bathroom window did not have a/c as stated in listing (she did offer to have someone come out to put one in, explaining it had been removed for the cooler season) Bathroom window did not have a window curtain so we made a makeshift curtain out of towels Owner was very responsive when we asked for internet password and for a fan. She also talked me through getting the key out of the lockbox. The condo could have presented better, cobwebs, broken molding on armoire, old and dingy door and window curtains. BBQ too dirty to use and coffee maker totally crusted.
Despite these few negatives which were mainly cosmetic the price was right and the positives outweighed the negatives.
Perfect for me
It is a very cute cottage and Liza provided everything I needed. John was very helpful and suggested a coffee shop for me. It was very quiet and a perfect location.
Cozy Beach Getaway
We recently spent four nights in this little beach bungalow. It has everything you need in a small, compact space. The nice patio out front is an added bonus--very tropical. This rental is located in a nice residential neighborhood. We had fun walking up and down the tree-lined street. There is a park a block away with play equipment for the children. A nice walking/biking path is just at the end of the block. There are several good eating spots within walking distance, too. The beach is an easy walk, although you do have to cross a busy boulevard to get there. We had a great stay and will return.
