Great Space, lots of light and great atmosphere. I felt like I was on a tropical island with all the palm trees and plants. Comfortable bed and setting.
Mikael was a wonderful host; Kind and very accommodating. I was provided everything I needed.
And... The space is just a few blocks from the famous Windansea beach.
Mike was very communicative and reached out by phone and email the day of our arrival to make sure we had solid directions and to see if he might be able to give us an in-person welcome (unfortunately, we missed him). The room was very cozy and just as pictured. We were comfortable there, albeit a little warm (the room heats up quite a bit in the daytime sun). Maui, the yard cat, made for a welcoming neighbor and we enjoyed the shared outdoor hammock and sitting areas as well. Other than that, I'll just say, the location is perfect! Very close to the beach and less than a mile from the heart of La Jolla.
Mike was very accommodating and answered any questions we had promptly. The place is essentially what you see in pictures, and was adequate for a one room bedroom. It is with in walking distance to all the shops in la jolla as well as very close to the beach. Great location for a great price. Simple living.
I had an awesome stay while in La Jolla. Mike was a great host, making sure I had whatever I needed. The space is private, despite the unit having a lot of windows, because it is in the back of the house. It's about 3 blocks from the beach. They had bikes (which I didn't take advantage of) and beach gear (which I did). The space was clean and the weather in La Jolla is perfect for an open window breeze.
I would definitely stay here again, and recommend friends to do the same.
Mikael is a gracious host and generously accommodated arrival schedule. The garden room is the back sunroom on a vintage bungalow. It is quite simple and rustic, but it was comfortable and beautiful to lay in bed and watch the moon in the garden. If you are tired of the sterile hotels and want to hang close to the beach in the surfer-chic garden room this is for you.
Great property, great hosts!
Mikael made check-in easy by staying in touch and leaving the key under the mat of their lovely bungalow. Later he welcomed us in person and gave us great recommendations for local restaurants- we got fantastic seafood at El Pescador and Wahoo Fish Taco! The room was just as pictured: sunny, clean, cheerful, and thoughtfully stocked with yogurt, bottled water, granola bars, a hair dryer, etc. Best part was the location: you can see the pacific ocean from the street! The neighborhood is charming and quiet- lots of beautiful houses to walk around. We two 20-something girls felt totally safe walking around at night.
Great stay- would totally come back!
David and Mikael are great hosts, welcoming and relaxed, but also taking care of the details. I'm a repeat visitor to their Garden Room and will be again. It's in an ideal location for Birdrock and the Windansea beach, and it's quiet and comfortable. Mikael and David are right on top of arrival information and make it easy to dovetail checking in with the schedule of my family whom I go to San Diego to visit. This is a wonderful spot. The hosts set the tone.
