Welcome to La Jolla Luxury Living at its finest!
One of us from my team will be meeting you at the house for check in and will provide a brief tour of the home to show you how everything works. Check in is at 4:00 p.m. and check out is at 10:00 a.m. In the meantime, we are happy to help you with all of your pre-arrival arrangements.
WHAT IS PROVIDED: The home is stocked with a starter set of paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, sponge, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, lotion, two sets of towels per person and 1 beach towel per person. Every bathroom has a hairdryer. An iron and ironing board is also provided. There is a 12 cup coffee maker with filters, blender, and ample dishes, glassware, utensils, cutting boards and knives, cookware and BBQ tools. All beds are made up with high quality linens, comforters, and plenty of pillows. WiFi access is complimentary.
HOUSEKEEPING: Daily housekeeping services are available upon request at an additional charge. There is one complimentary cleaning included if your stay is more than 7 nights. Our housekeepers are also available for light cooking, shopping, and other assistance.
CONCIERGE SERVICES: We are happy to help you with transportation, restaurant reservations, bike rentals, a photographer, salon services, massage therapists and more. We have some unique and fun packages put together to make your trip memorable. For example, have a bonfire and chairs all ready for you at the beach, s'mores to roast, and all you have to do is show up! If you are traveling with small children, we can assist with rental of baby equipment and babysitting services. Just let us know what is on your wish list.
GROCERIES: We do highly suggest letting us help with pre-stocked groceries. It makes your vacation so much easier when your kitchen is stocked and groceries put away before you arrive - that way you do not have to waste precious time at the grocery store.
COOKING IN: We have several local favorite personal chefs if you would like to have someone cook you a fun dinner in one night or prepare meals during your stay. If you arrange a private chef for your first arrival dinner, it takes the stress off the day where everybody is traveling and often costs the same as going out to a nice restaurant. We can also arrange wine tasting, beer tasting, or any combination of fun customized events at the house.
EVENTS AND ATTRACTIONS: Let us arrange the VIP behind the scenes tours for you of The Zoo, Sea World, Yacht tours of the San Diego Bay, personalized tours of San Diego, and much more. See the Panda Bears before the zoo opens, take a tour in a 9-person zoo cart to meet the zoo keepers and see the animals you choose up close, swim with the Dolphins or interact with our White Beluga Whales. I do recommend letting us purchase your attraction tickets online because our ticket prices are less than you pay at the gate and we can have them waiting for you at check in. The tickets are not date specific and are good for one year. We look forward to welcoming you to San Diego!
The home is located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in all of San Diego - La Jolla Farms. Set back above Black's Beach, there is private gated access to the beach for residents only. Within a mile of La Jolla Shores beach, in low tide you can walk both beaches. Access to Black's Beach is one block away and Scripps Birch Aquarium, Kellog Park and La Jolla Shores Beach with the quaint restaurants and shops of La Jolla Shores are all within 1 mile of the house. Conveniently located, you have quick access to Torrey Pines Golf Course, Torrey Pines State Park, Del Mar Race Track, Downtown village of La Jolla, and freeway access to Downtown San Diego, The San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Legoland and everything else San Diego has to offer.
