About the property

Beautiful, Historic, Full Ocean View in Village

La Reinita translates as 'the Queen'. And a Queen it is. Built on a hill overlooking the pacific it was one of the first homes built in La Jolla by the first village's doctor. But please don't get the idea that it is old, on the contrary, it is very new inside with an up to date kitchen and modern comfy furniture.It is where historic and zen come together.

You enter the cottage property through a wrought iron gate past a small office building. A front yard with Adirondack chairs and a hot tub great you in the private yard.

As you enter you are greeted by hardwood floors, panoramic ocean views and a wonderful living room. There is a sofa bed in the living room and a comfy chair that are directed towards a large mounted TV and an electric fireplace heater. Two chairs are set up for ocean viewing and reading.

To the right as you enter is the kitchen and dining area that seats four. Windows look out on the lawn with beautiful gardens. The motif is black and white with all up to date appliances and a fully equipped kitchen.

On the far side of the living room to the right is a master bedroom. Very cozy with a queen bed and full bath room.

To the left of the living room is an outside deck with ample seating, patio umbrella, fire pit, and hot tub! all in an ocean view spot.

By the door leading to the deck is a spiral staircase leading to a second master bedroom with a queen bed and 3/4 bathroom. A washer and dryer is just around the corner.

The colors are white beige and blue making it very cottage like but with a strong Zen feel of peace and comfort and tranquility.

The home can sleep 6

Other amenities include: Wi-Fi, cable TV, apple TV, A/C, washer and dryer, 1 parking spot located in the garage next door, and 3 bikes (please bring your own helmets and bike locks)

Perfect Harmony!

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us staying on the property, It was perfect. We entered the property through a vine covered gate. Followed a path to the quaint cottage.The cottage did not disappoint. The view was beautiful. The cottage is tucked away between larger buildings but you never lost that feeling of privacy. The buildings didn't seem to matter. There was a patio with gas fireplace and gas grill. Both gas tanks were empty, but the very next morning Sam, real sweet girl, came to the cottage and went to fill the tanks . The kitchen was perfect size and a table for four. The table was a little dirty, so just wiped it down. There was someone in there before us, so I would have thought it would have been spotless by cleaning service.

The bedroom upstairs had its own bathroom and a great view. A comfortable queen bed. Down a spiral staircase was the second bedroom, no view but had a bathroom. We used all the amenities. There is a wonderful selection of books to read. The huge plus about the cottage was the location. Walking distance to everything. We met the owner and I felt like I have known her forever. She is outging and kind. We will definitely go back!!! What a find and a gem. JMJ

Great location right in the heart of La Jolla with ocean views. We LOVED sitting in the hot tub at night, listening to the waves and staring at the stars. I can't wait to come back to this charming cottege next year ... so amazing 😊

Charming Historic Property; Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice kitchen and living area, with comfortable bedrooms. The views are as nice as in the pictures. We were at full capacity (six occupants) and it remained very nice. The discrete street entry and hidden garden add to the charm. The little extras (boogie boards and bicycles in the laundry room, pre-arranged parking) were much appreciated. We were too busy to try out the whirlpool or the butane fire-pit. As a native son, I always imagined living in one of the historic cottages, and enjoyed this opportunity.

Fantastic, very private spot in the heart of La Jolla Village.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in La Jolla and this property made all the difference. A wonderfully private location that was very convenient and with superb ocean views. My wife and I and our 18 and 16 year old sons stayed for the entire week of Xmas vacation. La Jolla itself was great and we explored greater San Diego extensively. It was always great to be returning to the cottage. While not large we had ample space and didn't feel crowded once. Beautiful natural light and awesome ocean views and you could easily hear the surf. Great breakfast and coffee spaces; nice patio and a spa to boot. The secluded location of the cottage and its historical charms delighted us throughout our trip. We really didn't have any problems and our questions were answered by Lindsay in San Diego very quickly and she was a delight to work with. Highly recommend this property!

The cottage is nestled behind an office with a private yard just on the outskirts of the village. It is at walking distance to food, stores, museums antiquing, art galleries, the famous Seal Rock and the new luxury movie theater The Lot!
