“Stunning!”

Perfect location one block from the ocean and one block from the village. Cottage is just as described and photos are an accurate representation. It was very clean, had beautiful near new towels and bed linen and a well equipped kitchen. The management company was great to deal with.

To note, it is fairly small so best suited for a couple at the most (maybe with one small child). The bathroom is off the bedroom and the toilet is off that. So anyone sleeping on the sofa bed has to go through the bedroom. Bathroom is tiny but adequate.

Also, this is the heart of the village so there is noise from people using the stairs/lanes down each side of the property, trash collection for commercial properties each morning, doof doof music noise from cars, construction from nearby renovations. At other times it was dead silent and we could hear the waves crashing on the shore.

Parking was a nightmare. If you plan on exploring the village/cove you won't need to drive. But if you're heading to wider San Diego area each day be prepared to drive around looking for a park 1-2 blocks away.

Overall we loved it and would thoroughly recommend it. We also recommend breakfast at Cody's around the corner. Don't be put off by the wait time.

Thank you for taking the time to review Casa de las Olas. We're so glad that you enjoyed the home and your experience. Sorry you had some trouble parking. It's usually not a problem, but we do offer a pass for the local garage in summer months when it's more crowded. We hope you visit us again soon!

“Location location location in La Jolla”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Quaint beach bungalow steps away from La Jolla cove, restaurants and shopping along Prospect street. Interior interesting mix of retro and more modern amenities. Pictures are very accurate but overall space is only good for a couple. Single bathroom is tiny and no counter space but sports a steam shower/tub combo. Kitchen and outdoor grill made cooking meals easy but lack of dishwasher tempered use. Parking can be a treasure hunt but owners thoughtfully offer off site parking garage pass for summertime use. Management company very easy to work with and very responsive to maintenance requests. Perfect spot for vacationing couple without kids!

“Wonderful beach cottage! We did not want to leave.”

Casa de las Olas was a fantastic size for our family of 3 and the view of the ocean was outstanding. The bathtub/shower with 2-way glass was a really great way to always take advantage of the ocean view. Cottage furnishings, amenities and decor are very well done. You cannot ask for a better location as the beach and La Jolla Cove shops are just one block in either direction. We would highly recommend this property to friends and plan to return. Bluewater vacations offered great vacation planning tips and do a nice job of keeping the cottage very clean.

We thank you for your kind review, and hope you will return one day. Casa de las Olas is a special place, a piece of history updated for today. Bluewater Vacation Homes keeps it immaculately and always makes guests feel welcome. We're glad they did that for you.

My wife and I have traveled a bit... France, Spain, London, Wales, Germany, Italy, Greece, Croatia, Bali, Thailand, India, China, South Africa, etc BUT there is no place on earth we would rather be for relaxation and rejuvenation then Casa de las Olas. Jim and his staff Antonio and Mari are among the kindest and most solid people you will ever met. The gorgeous main suite is topped only by the breathtaking private beach which can be enjoyed from the luxurious deck that is literally on the sand. The only reason to leave this haven is for the amazing Mexican cuisine both alone the beach road and in town. This was our second trip and most certainly will not be our last.
