About Paul Mudge

We purchased a "fixer upper" beach house in La Jolla as a vacation property. After a couple of years we chose to move from Orange County and live in our vacation house. Shortly thereafter we thought it would be a good idea to add a master bedroom to take advantage of the ocean views. As it happened the room addition became a complete re-build of the 1970's era house. Along the way we made sure to include all the features we wanted in a home we could share with guests. We are proud of the kitchen (we both love to cook) and the warm comfortable feeling you get when you enter the house.

We eventually moved back to Orange County to be closer to our work and in 2014 began offering the house to travelers on the Home Away and VRBO website.

Paul Mudge purchased this house in 2001

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the spectacular ocean views from the balconies. Sleeping with the windows open allows you to fall asleep listening to the ocean waves. We use to sit outside eating lunch or dinner for hours watching the waves, boats, surfers and the migrating whales. Our home has a warm, comforting feel. You will be drawn to the view immediately upon walking in. The is lots to do like relax and read a book, take a nap, go for a walk to the beach or visit a nearby San Diego attraction.

Amazing La Jolla views

Loved the house, loved the patio with the beautiful views of La Jolla coastline. Would absolutely go stay at this property again. Large kitchen and dining areas, comfortable for a decent size group.

Wonderful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with girlfriends for my 40th birthday and the house was perfect. The home was spacious with breathtaking views. The owners were easy to contact and responded very quickly to any questions I had. They even went over and above and made suggestions on restaurants in the area. There is a cute little park overlooking the ocean that is perfect for pictures directly behind the house. The house was close to great shops, restaurants, and beaches. My weekend couldn't have been more perfect.

An exceptional home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is awesome--much better than the online photographs. The three decks and their breathtaking views provided hours of relaxation between wedding festivities. We actually only got to spend one full day in the house because we were always busy with my son's wedding, but I wish we could've spent more time. It was well equipped--tons of dishes and a wonderful kitchen. The poor SubZero refrigerator seems like it's on its last legs, but bags of ice helped, and the two drawer refrigerators saved the day. The beds were great and there were lots of bathrooms and towels. Each level had its own thermostat! We never got to use the hot tub or grill, but both looked amazing! Since my two sons live in San Diego, I may rent this one again!

Spacious home with spectacular views

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful trip with grown kids and grandkids to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The home was beautiful and well stcked and maintained. Very roomy and a great layout for our family. It was a short car ride to take the kids to the beach. We cooked a great family dinner and the kitchen was well stocked. The Mexican restaurant on the corner was great and inexpensive too. The only feedback I would provide is to upgrade the towels and linens and make clear (document) the checkout time. We called and asked but didn't get an answer. A maid showed up at 9am expecting us to be gone. Way too early for an upscale rental plus we were never informed. All in all it was a fantastic rental and we would definitely love to return. Also can't beat the weather!
