Interaction with Guests

I'm the proud owner and remodeler of "La Jolla Skylark" Home.

I love to give recommendations and help guests navigate their holiday.

Text is the fastest and easiest way to ask a questions...I'm super responsive.

See my 100% 5-star reviews that mention me, Laura :) by name.

I'm also available to meet with guests to show you the amenities (only takes 10 minutes) or I'm here to help DAY or NIGHT. You're not dealing with a property manager.

We offer a less expensive base rate so groups of four people and under may enjoy the house without paying for the maximum number of people/22 guests. Like hotels (suite w/ multiple rooms vs. single bed rooms), we charge for guests over 5 people to cover for out of pocket costs: rent, linens, towels, supplies, utilities, maintenance, cleaning, breakage, wear and tear, etc. The extra guest discount/fee for five people and under/over is $25 per person per night. Thanks for understanding.

BEST WAYS TO SAVE ESPECIALLY IF YOUR DATES ARE FLEXIBLE!
Save up to 65% off when you book your vacation for weekend days. Mon-Thurs. are up to 65% off.

Also if you lengthen your stay to 5-7 days – over a month you get a bigger savings depending on the season.

Book your stay super far in advance (at least 3-4 months to a year) and you get the standard rates vs. the seasonal adjusted rates.

Sometimes there are last minute and cancellation deals. Just email me and I can notify you.

Book non-high season. This is tough one because San Diego has vacation renters all year. The slower months tend to be non-holiday, events, or graduation weeks of Oct.-May.

Invite your friends and family, our house sleeps 22 and splitting the fix rates by 20 you all enjoy a super savings over hotels.

Bottom line vacation homes verses hotels saves you money on meals and drinks as you don't have to go out to eat 3 meals a day. And hotels charge more tax, parking, internet, movies, etc.

See the link and below on all the advantages (URL HIDDEN)

Just text or email and I can tell you the best days to book for the largest savings.

Rates are subject to change until your reservation is confirmed and we receive full payment.

Tax Rate is the required the city of San Diego on all short term rentals. This goes to the city.

The cleaning fee is a one-time fee. I have two housekeepers that clean from 10 am (check out time) to 4 pm (check in time) prior to your stay and after your stay. If you need an early check-in (before 4 pm) or late check-out (after 10 am) I may accommodate by hiring a third housekeeper for ($75-$150) depending on availability. Please give me notice as soon as possible to book the proper staff. Just let me know when you know. I will do my best to hire at the last minute too. I will need to charge you the cost to clean for non-planned late check outs in order to get the place ready for the next guest by 4 pm. Thanks for understanding.

Feel free to call, email or text me with any questions or special requests, i.e. late or early check-in (need to hire a 3rd housekeeper), personal chef, we do the grocery shopping, massages, concierge services, beach and bike rentals, crib and kids chairs, etc.

It is a hilly seaside community, occupying 7 miles (11 km) of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean within the northern city limits. La Jolla had the highest home prices in the nation in 2008 and 2009; the average price of a standardized four-bedroom home in La Jolla was reported as US $1.842 million in 2008 and US $2.125 million in 2009.[citation needed] The 2004 estimated population of the 92037 ZIP code was 42,808 [1] while the La Jolla community planning area had an estimated population of 31,746 in 2010.[1] La Jolla is surrounded on three sides by ocean bluffs and beaches[4] and is located 12 miles (19 km) north of Downtown San Diego, and 40 miles (64 km) south of Orange County California,[5][6] The climate is mild, with an average daily temperature of 70.5 °F (21.4 °C)[7][8][9] La Jolla is home to a variety of businesses in the areas of lodging, dining, shopping, software, finance, real estate, bio-engineering, medical practice and scientific research.[4][10][11]

The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is located in La Jolla, as are the Salk Institute, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Scripps Research Institute, and the headquarters of National University (though its academic campuses are elsewhere).

History[edit]

La Jolla
Origin of the name[edit]
Local Native Americans, the Kumeyaay, called this location mat kulaaxuuy [mat kəlaːxuːj], lit. "land of holes" (mat = "land").[12] The topographic feature that gave rise to the name "holes" is uncertain; it probably refers to sea-level caves located on the north-facing bluffs, which are visible from La Jolla Shores. It is suggested that the Kumeyaay name for the area was transcribed by the Spanish settlers as "La Jolla". An alternative suggestion for the origin of the name is that it is a corruption of the Spanish word "la joya", which means "the jewel". Despite being disputed by scholars, this origin of the name La Jolla has been widely cited in popular culture.[13] That supposed origin gave rise to the nickname "Jewel City", which was once commonly used but now exists mainly in commercial references.(phone number hidden)]

Early history[edit]
See also: List of San Diego Historical Landmarks in La Jolla
During the Mexican period of San Diego's history, La Jolla was mapped as pueblo land and contained about 60 lots. When California became a state in 1850, the La Jolla area was incorporated as part of the chartered City of San Diego. In 1870 Charles Dean acquired several of the pueblo lots and subdivided them into an area that became known as La Jolla Park. Dean was unable to develop the land and left San Diego in 1881. A real estate boom in the 1880s led speculators Frank T. Botsford and George W. Heald to further develop the sparsely settled area.

In the 1890s the San Diego, Pacific Beach, and La Jolla Railway was built, connecting La Jolla to the rest of San Diego. La Jolla became known as a resort area. To attract visitors to the beach, the railway built facilities such as a bath house and a dance pavilion. Visitors were housed in small cottages and bungalows above La Jolla Cove, as well as a temporary "tent city" erected every summer. Two of the cottages built in 1894 still exist: the Red Roost and the Red Rest, also known as the Neptune and Cove Tea Room, vacant since the 1980s. The La Jolla Park Hotel opened in 1893. The Hotel Cabrillo was built in 1908 by "Squire" James A. Wilson and was later incorporated into the La Valencia Hotel.[18]

By 1900 La Jolla included 100 buildings and 350 residents. The first reading room (library) was built in 1898.[18] A volunteer fire brigade was organized in 1907; the city of San Diego established a regular fire house in 1914. Livery stable owner Nathan Rannells served successively as La Jolla's volunteer fire captain, first police officer (the only San Diego police officer north of Mission Valley), and first postmaster.[19]

The Bishop's School opened in 1909. La Jolla High School was established in 1922. The La Jolla Beach and Yacht Club (later the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club) was built in 1927.[18]

Ellen Browning Scripps[edit]


La Jolla Recreational Center
In 1896 journalist and publisher Ellen Browning Scripps settled in La Jolla, where she lived for the last 35 years of her life. She was wealthy in her own right from her investments and writing, and she inherited a large sum from her brother George H. Scripps in 1900. Unmarried and childless, she devoted herself to philanthropic endeavors, particularly those benefiting her adopted home of La Jolla. She commissioned many of La Jolla's most notable buildings, usually designed by Irving Gill or his nephew and partner Louis Gill. Many of these buildings are now on the National Register of Historic Places or are listed as historic by the city of San Diego; these include the La Jolla Woman's Club (1914), the La Jolla Recreational Center (1915), the earliest buildings of The Bishop's School, and the Old Scripps Building at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, as well as her own residence, built in 1915 and now housing the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Her donations also launched the Scripps Memorial Hospital in 1924 (originally located on Prospect Street in La Jolla until it moved to its present site in 1964), the Scripps Metabolic Clinic (now the Scripps Research Institute), and the Children's Pool.

Scripps Institution of Oceanography[edit]


Scripps Institution of Oceanography pier
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, one of the nation's oldest oceanographic institutes, was founded in 1903 by William Emerson Ritter, chair of the zoology department at the University of California, with financial support from Scripps and her brother E. W. Scripps. At first the institution operated out of a boathouse in Coronado. In 1905 they purchased a 170-acre (0.69 km2) site in La Jolla where the Institution still stands today. The first laboratory buildings there opened in 1907. The institution became part of the University of California in 1912. Ultimately it became the nucleus for the establishment of the University of California, San Diego.

Camp Matthews[edit]
From 1917 through 1964 the U.S. Marine Corps maintained a military base in La Jolla. The base was used for marksmanship training and was known as Camp Calvin B. Matthews. During and after World War II the population of La Jolla grew, causing residential development to draw close to the base, so that it became less and less suitable as a firing range because of risk to the adjacent civilian population.[20] Meanwhile the site was being eyed as a location for a proposed new campus of the University of California. In 1962 Camp Matthews was declared surplus by the Marine Corps. The base formally closed in 1964, and that same year the first class of undergraduates enrolled in the University of California, San Diego.

University of California[edit]
Local civic leaders had long toyed with the idea of a San Diego campus of the University of California, and the quest became more definite following World War II. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, under its director Roger Revelle, had become an important defense contractor, and local aerospace companies like Convair were pressing for local training for their scientists and engineers. The state legislature proposed the idea in 1955, and the Regents of the University formally approved it in 1960.[21] The campus was originally named "University of California, La Jolla", but the name was changed to "University of California, San Diego" in 1960.[22] The founding chancellor was Herbert York, named in 1961; the second chancellor was John Semple Galbraith, named in 1964. The university was designed to have a "college" system; there are now six colleges. The first college was established in 1965 and was named Revelle College after Roger Revelle, who is regarded as the "father" of the university.[22] A medical school was established in 1968. The landmark Geisel Library opened in 1970.

Antisemitism[edit]
The Camp Matthews site for the University was selected with some hesitation; one of the concerns was "whether La Jollans in particular would lay aside old prejudices in order to welcome a culturally, ethnically, and religiously diverse professoriate into their midst".[21] La Jolla had a history of restrictive housing policies, often specified in deeds and ownership documents. In La Jolla Shores and La Jolla Hermosa, only people with "pure" European ancestry could own property; this excluded Jews, who were not considered white. Such "restrictive covenants" were once fairly common throughout the United States; the 1948 Supreme Court case Shelley v. Kraemer ruled them to be unenforceable, and Congress outlawed them twenty years later.[23] However, realtors and property owners in La Jolla continued to use more subtle ways of preventing or discouraging Jews from owning property there.[24] Revelle stated the issue bluntly: "You can't have a university without having Jewish professors. The Real Estate Broker's Association and their supporters in La Jolla had to make up their minds whether they wanted a university or an anti-Semitic covenant. You couldn't have both."[25] The issue was overcome; La Jolla now boasts a thriving Jewish population,[26] and there are four synagogues in La Jolla.[27]

Mount Soledad cross[edit]


The Christian cross on Mount Soledad
Main article: Mount Soledad cross controversy
Mount Soledad is a 822-foot (251 m) tall hill on the eastern edge of La Jolla, one of the highest points in San Diego. A large Christian cross was placed at the top in 1913 as a prominent landmark. It has been replaced twice, most recently in 1954 with a 29-foot-tall (8.8 m) cross (43 feet tall, including the base). Originally known as the "Mount Soledad Easter Cross", its presence on publicly owned land was challenged in the 1980s as a violation of the separation of church and state. Since then the cross has had a war memorial built around it and was renamed "Mount Soledad Veterans War Memorial".[28] The issue has been in almost continual litigation ever since, with the city attempting to sell or give away the land under the cross. By an act of Congress, the federal government took possession of it under eminent domain in 2006. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit declared the cross unconstitutional in 2011, and the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear an appeal.[29] In December 2013, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ordered that the cross be removed within 90 days, but stayed the order pending a forthcoming appeal by the government.[30][31]

Arts[edit]
La Jolla became an art colony in 1894 when Anna Held (also known as Anna Held Heinrich) established the Green Dragon Colony. This was a cluster of twelve cottages designed by Irving Gill, who had moved to San Diego only a year earlier and later became San Diego's best-known architect.[32]

The La Jolla Playhouse was founded in 1947 by Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, and Mel Ferrer.[33] It became inactive in 1959, but was revived in 1983 on the University of California campus under the leadership of Des McAnuff. It now incorporates three theaters: the Mandell Weiss Theatre (1983), the Mandell Weiss Forum (1991) and the Potiker Theater (2005).

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego was founded in 1941 in La Jolla, in the former home of Ellen Browning Scripps (designed by Irving J. Gill). The museum has undergone several renovations and expansions, the most recent in 1996 by Robert Venturi of Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates. [34]

Geography[edit]

View from Horseshoe


Wipeout Beach
Demarcation[edit]
The community's border starts at Pacific Beach to the south and extends along the Pacific Ocean shoreline north to include Torrey Pines State Reserve ending at Del Mar, California. La Jolla encompasses the neighborhoods[35] of Bird Rock, Windansea Beach, the commercial center known as the Village of La Jolla, La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Farms, Muirlands, Torrey Pines, and Mount Soledad to name a few.

The City of San Diego defines the community's eastern boundary as Gilman Drive and the Interstate 5 freeway [36] and the northern boundary as the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).[37]

The U.S. Postal Service defines a somewhat larger area, assigning the community the 92037 ZIP code, recognizing it as a historically and geographically distinct area. This unique ZIP code allows addresses to read La Jolla, CA and is the only community within the City of San Diego so recognized. Additionally, it is in the 919xx/920xx sequence used for suburban and rural ZIP codes in San Diego County, rather than the 921xx sequence used for the remainder of the City of San Diego itself. These conditions sometimes lead to the erroneous impression that La Jolla is a separate city rather than a part of San Diego. The 92037 ZIP code extends the northeasterly boundary to Genesee Avenue and the northerly boundary to Del Mar, California. The UCSD campus, although it is part of La Jolla, has ZIP codes 92092 and 92093.

Geology[edit]
La Jolla is an area of mixed geology, including sandy beaches and rocky shorelines. The area is occasionally susceptible to flooding and ocean storms, as occurred in January and Decemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)]

Mount Soledad is covered with the narrow roads that follow its contours and hundreds of homes overlooking the ocean on its slopes. It is the home of the large concrete Mount Soledad Easter Cross built in 1954, later designated a Korean War Memorial, that became the center of a controversy over the display of religious symbols on government property.

The most compelling geographical highlight of La Jolla is its ocean front, with alternating rugged and sandy coast line and wild seal congregations. Popular sandy beaches, dotting the coastline from the south to the north, are:

Windansea Beach
Marine Street
Horse Shoes
Wipeout Beach
Children's Pool Beach
Shell Beach (La Jolla)
La Jolla Cove
Boomers Beach
La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club
La Jolla Shores
Scripps
Black's Beach (a de facto nude beach leading up to Torrey Pines State Reserve)

La Jolla had the highest home prices in the nation in 2008[39] and 2009,[40] according to a survey by Coldwell Banker.

Getting Around

La Jolla: Public Transportation

Travelers driving north on Interstate 5 from downtown San Diego should exit on La Jolla Parkway, which becomes Torrey Pines Road and runs into the "village" area of La Jolla. This is where the majority of shops and restaurants are located. Prospect Street is the main restaurant area and Girard Avenue is the main shopping street. La Jolla lacks a taxi stand, so call one if it's needed. Fares from San Diego Airport to the village of La Jolla (about 14 miles) will cost around $50 plus tip one way. It will cost about the same to UCSD.

Drivers headed south on Interstate 5 should exit La Jolla Village Drive and take Torrey Pines Road into the village or La Jolla Shores Drive to La Jolla Shores.

The number 30 MTS bus connects downtown San Diego with La Jolla. To visit the village of La Jolla, get off at the bus at the Silverado and Herschel stop. You can walk from there to the restaurants and shops on Girard and Prospect. For UCSD, the stop is either N. Torrey Pines & La Jolla Shores or the V.A. Medical Center. If arriving on Amtrack, La Jolla is between to the Santa Fe Station in San Diego and the station in Solana Beach. Taxis are available at both train stations and, of course, at the airport.

It's helpful to have GPS when driving, walking or cycling around any city, including San Diego. Several private car services are available, including Coastal Transportation (phone number hidden), La Jolla Star Transportation (tel. (phone number hidden)), Lifestyle Transportation (tel. (phone number hidden)), Village Transportation (tel. (phone number hidden)), and Harbor Airport Transportation (tel. (phone number hidden)). The latter services the Los Angeles Airport as well as places within San Diego. La Jolla Star and Lifestyle Transportation both provide children's car seats.

Other Things to Note

Here is a map I created via (website hidden) maps of super close/walking distance beaches, activities, attractions, golf, restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets, etc that we recommend. (website hidden) Since this site blocks websites I can send you the list when you book.

BEST WAYS TO SAVE ESPECIALLY IF YOUR DATES ARE FLEXIBLE!
Save up to 65% off when you book your vacation for weekend days. Mon.-Wed. are up to 65% off. And then Thursdays and Sundays are less expensive than Friday and Saturdays.

Also if you lengthen your stay to 5-7 days – over a month you get a bigger savings depending on the season.

Book your stay super far in advance (at least 3-4 months to a year) and you get the standard rates vs. the seasonal adjusted rates.

Sometimes there are last minute and cancellation deals. Just email me and I can notify you.

Book non-high season. This is tough one because San Diego has vacation renters all year. The slower months tend to be non-holiday, events, or graduation weeks of Oct.-May.

Invite your friends and family, our house sleeps 22 and splitting the fix rates by 20 you all enjoy a super savings over hotels.

Bottom line vacation homes verses hotels saves you money on meals and drinks as you don't have to go out to eat 3 meals a day. And hotels charge more tax, parking, internet, movies, etc.

See the link and below on all the advantages (URL HIDDEN)

Just text or email and I can tell you the best days to book for the largest savings.
EXTRA GUESTS / SMALL GROUP SAVINGS
I offer a discounted base rate so groups of four and under may enjoy the house without paying for the maximum number of people/16-20 guests. Like hotels (suite w/ multiple rooms vs. single bed rooms), we charge for guests over four to cover out of pocket costs: discounted rent, linens, towels, supplies, beds, utilities, maintenance, cleaning, breakage, wear and tear, etc. The price is the same. Like hotels, since the set up, washing linens and cleaning are the same as if a guests stays a partial versus the entire stay we need a maximum count of guests for your stay.

The discount/fee is $25 per person per night over five guests. Thanks for understanding.

The cleaning fee covers 5-6 hours of one time cleaning, cleaning supplies, bathing supplies, breakage (so I don't need to file a claim or take from your deposit for a broken wine glass) and maintenance.

I'm required by the City of San Diego to charge a mandatory occupancy tax.

I would love to meet you, give you the keys, show off the remodel, amenities and answer any local questions. Do you want to meet at 4 pm on check in day? If for some reason we are not able to coordinate a time to meet or if you prefer I will leave your key in the lock box.

Key Lock Box: Pull the top edge of the black cover towards you to reveal the combination numbers. I changed the numbers to 810 for this week. Press the front silver plate inward to pop the plate out to reveal the key. When you leave the house return the key to the lock box so you don't have to worry about losing the keys. To lock the key, set the combination to this week's combo (above), insert the key, press cover close and scramble the numbers. Please use the lock box every time you leave so all the guests have access to the key, don't lose and I don't have to charge you to get the locks replaced.

As Stated in your Contract:
NO SMOKING inside or outside (especially at the fire pit since the ocean breeze blows the smoke inside) so you and future guests may enjoy the house cigarette / smoke free. You will be charged $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for cleaning.

NO PETS unless you've made arrangements as we charge for the extra cleaning to ensure allergic guests may enjoy the house. Like hotels, there is a daily pet rental rate and a pet cleaning fee. Pet owners must clean the waste immediately. $5 per pile fee.

NO PARTIES as stated in the contract due to the Homeowners Association. Neighbors will call the cops. The maximum number of guests allowed in and at the house is your reservation guest count ONLY. This is strictly enforced and you could lose your accommodations with no refund if you do not follow these rules as stated in the contract. If you need to raise your guest count, please let us know ASAP so we may revise. You will be charged $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for the violation.

Internet – The wireless router network is Skylark1. The password is OceanView1114. (Capitalization sensitive) Occasionally we need to reboot the router. Unplug the main router under the TV table in the living room for 15 seconds. Time Warner has notes in the account to troubleshoot if the rebooting doesn't work. Call (phone number hidden) and give them my name and phone number (Laura Christine, (phone number hidden)) so they can check the signal strength then troubleshoot and/or send a tech person to fix the internet.

Kitchen, Gym - Please feel free to use plates, silverware, pots, pans, sports equipment (at your own risk) and consume any food, alcohol drinks or condiments in the fridge or cupboards. Please just replace what you use.

Trash - The trash cans are located on the east side of the house outside. Trash day is Monday before 9 am. The black trash cans always goes out and blue (recycle) /green (yard waste) goes out every other Monday so we just check our neighbors or put all out. Thank you for bringing cans out to the curb SUNDAY EVENING and back in Monday afternoon. Please ensure the trash is secure (close the lid) and in tied up trash bags to eliminate flies or rodents. We would take the trash out but don't want to bother your privacy. (feedback from guests.)

Brand New BBQ – Just turn each knob to light and then to your desired heat temperature. Let the BBQ heat up to clean the grill. We've supplied BBQ utensils next to the BBQ, on top of the counter next to stove or the right hand drawer next to the sink.

Electric Pellet Bigger BBQ Grill For Rent - Ensure there are pellets in the hopper, at least a ¼ full. Make sure the temperature dial is on smoke all the way to the left/counter clockwise. Turn the smoker on by flipping the power switch. Leave on smoke for 5 minutes to start it. Smoke should come out the chimney. Once you see smoke coming out you may adjust the temperature. When done, turn the power off and turn the temperature to smoke so it is in the starting position for the next person. Don't leave unattended. If the temperature drops, turn BBQ, remove your food, lift the grill plates, clean the fire pit then start from the beginning. Best place to plug in is in the garage in between door and window but away from the house not to get the smoke into the home. Here is the closest place to buy pellets: Here is a link to the closest place with the pellets for the smoker. (website hidden)

Cleaning Supplies, Paper Towels, and Toilet Paper – Cleaning supplies and trash bags are under the sink and the vacuum is in the front hall closet next to front door. There is a handle held vacuum next to the garage door charging. In the garage on the top of the draws are extra paper towels. Toilet paper is stored under the bathroom sinks and a Costco supply is in the guest bathroom lower cabinets next to the toilet. Plungers are under both bathroom sinks. I hire a professional cleaning crew to clean the place from 10 am to 4 pm on check out day before the next guest. Please let us know if they missed something and we'll send them out immediately. Toiletries are under both bathroom sinks.

Cleaning - There is a one time housekeeping fee so the place is clean for you and your guests. Occasionally, a spot may be missed even though we have someone inspect the place before your check in. Let us know right away as my housekeeper will come back to ensure the place is perfect. We can also schedule a weekly cleaning if you are staying at my home for longer than a week or have made arrangements to clean after a special gathering. We want you to enjoy the house and your family and friends as it is your vacation.

Roomba Daily Vacuum - You can also turn on the Roomba daily. Just hit the middle green button to run (if red needs more charging). YOU MUST USE THE ENTIRE LIFE OF THE BATTERY before you charge for the next day so ensure it has run the entire battery before returning to the docking station next to the garage door in the living room. If the battery isn't used the vacuum time diminishes dramatically. If the Roomba gets caught on a rug or furniture just pick it up and start again to use the entire battery. To charge, just return it to the cradle and ensure both green lights are lit on the docking station and the middle center light on the Roomba is pulsing to indicate it is taking a charge.

Sprinklers and Outdoor Lights - Both are programed to run at night (7 minutes Monday & Thursday) and lights from sundown to 10 pm (quiet time). If the timer is off, I can instruct you to program or run over to reprogram.

Kitchen Counter Tops – Please do not leave water on the counter tops (recently sealed) or let the water drop on the cabinets as this causes damage to the cabinets. (Super sensitive)

Dishwasher Operation: After filling, Press ON/OFF Button, black dial should be set to ECONOMY, press black START button. Dishwasher takes a few hours to complete a full cycle. I've recently added rock salt and a solution to eliminate mineral deposits/white stains from San Diego water.

Dryer – Set dial to NORMAL on SENSOR side, Press START/PLAY button.

Iron is located above the dryer on the shelf and Ironing Board is located behind the washer.

Playroom/Gym/Garage – You'll find sporting goods and beach boogie boards in the garage. Feel free to use the cardio equipment and weights at your own risk. The garage opener is on the wall next to the kitchen door and labeled for a view and extra ocean breeze air while working out. We unplug the garage door opener (ceiling above) to eliminate the noise when we have guests use the futon or Murphy bed.

No Air Conditioning – You won't usually need it but there are fans in the closets of each bedroom. Please use the fans in the bathroom after taking a shower and leave the solid glass door showers open to air it out and eliminate any moisture.

Treadmill – Flip POWER switch (red) to ON (up) on front side base of treadmill (side towards TV). Please flip POWER switch off when done. The plug is behind the TV marked “Treadmill" so you don't have to see blinking lights when not in use.

All Three Televisions – The WHITE remotes are the DIRECTV remotes which control both the TV and the cable boxes. The ON buttons will turn both TV and cable box on. The controls from there are self explanatory. The remote button (top middle slider) must be on DIRECTV and input on 7. DIRECTV instructions and channel lineup are in a folder in the house binder. Occasionally we need to reboot the system. Unplug the main receiver under the table in the living room for 15 seconds. DIRECTV has notes in the account to troubleshoot if the rebooting doesn't work. Call (phone number hidden) and give them my name and phone number (Laura Christine, (phone number hidden)) so they can check the signal strength then troubleshoot and/or send a tech person.

Music – Music and TV are separate systems. The black Samsung remote controls the music/Samsung. To play music, I've bought an adapter to plug in your iPhone and/or MP3 player. Turn on with red power button on the remote. Control the volume on the Samsung remote. To turn off, hit the red power button again.

Refrigerator – the door makes ice and access to filtered water. The back lever in the side door is ice and the front level is filtered water. I've labeled accordingly. I change the filter every six months or sooner.

Stove Hood – Please watch your head. We've received some input from very tall vacationers that they've hit their heads.

Dining Room & Den Tables – The dining room and den round tables are very easily marred by water or hot plates. Please use the board place settings (cloth ones don't cut it) and coasters when eating at the table. Thank you!

Fireplaces (Living Room and Front Patio) – The fireplaces are gas operated. Simply turn the gas valve key slightly and light using an extended lighter (provided). When done, turn the gas valve key back to the CLOSED/OFF position firmly. If not firmly turned off gas will continue to leak out presenting a dangerous health/hazard situation. There are two smoke detectors in the living room and just outside the master bedroom which are also carbon monoxide detectors for your safety.
*There are fire extinguishers located: In the cabinet above the refrigerator, in the lower pullout drawer located directly to the left of the fridge, and in the garage on the floor directly to the right of the kitchen entrance door below the hanging basket of athletic balls. Flash lights are located in the garage on top of drawers next to the washer machine and in the right hand drawer next to the stove. Please take note of their location for your own safety.

Linen Closet - There are extra sheets, blankets and a vacuum cleaner (if you need it) located in the closet right next to the front door. All bed sheets have been washed and changed prior to your arrival. Feel free to throw all used sheets and towels in the washer before you leave.

Guest Bathroom – There are extra towels, beach towels, hair dryers, cleaning products, toilet paper and washcloths and sample size toiletries in the drawers, cabinets and under the sink guest bathroom. Please run the fan in the guest bathroom on a timer, open window and oscillate after you take a shower to air out the bathroom. Thank you. Both bathrooms leave the shower doors open otherwise the showers traps moisture and eventually mildew.

Landscapers – Monday afternoon (noon to 4 pm) and they love to have some water.

Severe Drought, Lawn We are is a severe 10 year drought! In order not to raise prices to cover the double and maybe triple water bills to come please try to conserve water. We are doing our part too. We are killing the grass and installing a no water “Beach" in the front and back yards to enhance your beach home experience.

Phones – No landline. Cell phones may use Wi-Fi see internet for the password.

Water Shut Off – To turn off the water, in the front of the house next to the garage (on the right side if looking towards the garage) is a hose and water shut off.

Electrical Box - On the east side of the house where the garbage cans are stored are two electrical boxes near the blue gate. All the switches are labeled. There is another box on the other side of the wall in the garage.
Please set aside any mail that may be delivered. We have set the mail to be put on hold; but you know the post office
There is delivery food menus located in the house binder if you would like to order food. (Some threw out the menus at the end of July (maybe they spilled something on them so if you go to any local restaurant that you like please help me replace the menus to pay forward.)

1114 Skylark Drive, La Jolla, CA 92037, Laura Christine (phone number hidden) text (Fastest Contact Method)

Welcome! I'm looking forward to your stay in my OCEAN & SUNSET VIEWS La Jolla Vacation Rental!

You are in luck; we may have a few days before or after your stay if you would like to extend your holiday. To guarantee an extended stay you should book early as I have instant booking on several sites and we sell 28-30 days a month.

Let me know if you need an early (before 4 pm) or late check-out (after 10 am) as I hire a third housekeeper to ensure the place is ready for you and/or the next guest. ($75-$125). Check in time is 4 pm and check out is 10 am as the housekeepers need 10 am to 4 pm to clean this big place, wash linens and towels for potentially 20 people. If you do check out late, we will charge you for the housekeeper's time to wait outside and/or hiring a 3rd housekeeper to get the place ready for the next guest. Thanks for understanding. Let us know as we would love to accommodate you in advance.

To enjoy your vacation attached are some house tips to ensure your stay is comfortable. (These instructions in more details are also located at the house in a binder with activities brochures, info. sheets and menus.)

We want to have the right beds (including doggie beds) and the proper supply of linens (while trying to save the planet). Before you arrive please confirm your guest count if there are more, which beds will be used and if you have pets. If we don't hear from you we will assume your guest count in your reservation is correct and are using the following bedrooms first, then the den suite and then the playroom/gym last. If you have more guests in your reservation please let us know ASAP so we may coordinate with housekeeping for the proper bed configuration and linens.
Bedrooms – Bed Type – (Sleeps 22 Total in REAL Beds!)

•Bedroom 1 – Master Suite with Spa Bathroom - 1 California KING! (Sleeps 2)

•Bedroom 2 - Middle Bedroom, 1 Queen (Sleeps 2)

•Bedroom 3 - W/ Ocean View (Pacific Beach) - 2 Trundle Beds / 3 Queen Beds (Sleeps 6)

For your personalized comfort we have blinds and curtains in each bedroom, extra blankets and ceiling fans too.

The neighborhood is super quiet so the only thing that might wake you up is the birds singing.

We have cribs, hi-chair and play pens to rent!

La Jolla OCEAN & SUNSET VIEWS Vacation Rental Tips, 1114 Skylark Drive, La Jolla, CA 92037, Laura Christine (phone number hidden) cell/text
I would love to meet you, give you the keys, show off the remodel, amenities and answer any local questions. Do you want to meet at 4 pm on check in day? If for some reason we are not able to coordinate a time to meet or if you prefer I will leave your key in the lock box.

Key Lock Box: Pull the top edge of the black cover towards you to reveal the combination numbers. I changed the numbers to 810 for this week. Press the front silver plate inward to pop the plate out to reveal the key. When you leave the house return the key to the lock box so you don't have to worry about losing the keys. To lock the key, set the combination to this week's combo (above), insert the key, press cover close and scramble the numbers. Please use the lock box every time you leave so all the guests have access to the key, don't lose and I don't have to charge you to get the locks replaced.

Security: Yes, we have a security system with cameras for your safety and to protect the home. The cameras are located in public outdoor areas only for your privacy.

As Stated in your Contract:
NO SMOKING inside or outside (especially at the fire pit since the ocean breeze blows the smoke inside) so you and future guests may enjoy the house cigarette / smoke free. You will be charged $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for cleaning.

NO PETS unless you've made arrangements as we charge for the extra cleaning to ensure allergic guests may enjoy the house. Like hotels, there is a daily pet rental rate and a pet cleaning fee. Pet owners must clean the waste immediately. $5 per pile fee.

NO PARTIES as stated in the contract due to the Homeowners Association. Neighbors will call the cops. The maximum number of guests allowed in and at the house is your reservation guest count ONLY. This is strictly enforced and you could lose your accommodations with no refund if you do not follow these rules as stated in the contract. If you need to raise your guest count, please let us know ASAP so we may revise. You will be charged $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for the violation.

CITY OF SAN DIEGO ORDINANCES & HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATION RULES
We would love for you to enjoy your vacation with your family and friends!

Let me know if you have any questions DAY or NIGHT via text as we want you to have a fabulous time in San Diego.

I want you to have a great experience, be safe and save your money. I'm sure you're going to respect the neighborhood and the neighbors but wanted to give you the heads up on the below as they are strict....(I wish I didn't have to send this note.)

New City of San Diego Ordinances & Homeowner's Association Rules:
If the City of San Diego police come to the house or calls me due to a neighbor's complaint we both may be fined $1000 each for the noise. So you may be fined $1000 and will lose your entire deposit. (As stated in contract)

The City's Noise Ordinance (San Diego Municipal Code, Section 59.5.01): Noise Abatement. Because excessive noise can be harmful to the health and welfare of citizens, the City of San Diego prohibits excessive and annoying noise within City limits. The City's Noise Ordinance (San Diego Municipal Code, Section 59.5.01) defines noise and regulates it by type, land-use zone, and time of day. Violations of the noise ordinance could result in an administrative citation with fines up to $1,000. I

I've given my phone number to all the neighbors to call me first so that I can mitigate any damages by giving you a call and text to quiet down. I'm part of a homeowners association so I/you will be fined $500 from the HOA for noise, parties or smoking. No warnings. (As stated in contract)

Thank you in advance for understanding the laws and rules.

Due to the City of San Diego Occupancy rules to restrict parties and overcrowding, the maximum number of people to enjoy the home is your reservation guest count. If your reservation states 6 guests, the maximum number of people in the home/neighborhood is 6 guests. If you plan to have a mellow gathering please let me know right away so I may add that to the reservation and the City may collect their occupancy tax. If the homeowner's association contacts me with a guest count larger than what is stated on the contract/reservation you will be charged for those guests or the maximum guest count for your entire stay. (as stated in the contract).

Thanks for understanding.

Also it is highly advise to take taxi and/or Ubers or Lifts instead of driving if you plan to drink. They do you set checkpoints in Pacific Beach and downtown and there's only two ways out. And you will save on parking going down own so taxi pretty much pays for itself.

Again I want you have a great time, be safe and not have to pay any additional money.

Enjoy San Diego! Stay Classy!

Cheers.

Internet – The wireless router network is Skylark1. The password is OceanView1114. (Capitalization sensitive; no ) Occasionally we need to reboot the router. Unplug the main router under the TV table in the living room for 15 seconds. Time Warner has notes in the account to troubleshoot if the rebooting doesn't work. Call (phone number hidden) and give them my name and phone number (Laura Christine, (phone number hidden)) so they can check the signal strength then troubleshoot and/or send a tech person to fix the internet.

Kitchen, Gym - Please feel free to use plates, silverware, pots, pans, sports equipment (at your own risk) and consume any food, alcohol drinks or condiments in the fridge or cupboards. Please just replace what you use.

Trash - The trash cans are located on the east side of the house outside. Trash day is Monday before 9 am. The black trash cans always goes out and blue (recycle) /green (yard waste) depend on the Monday so we just check our neighbors or put all out. Thank you for bringing trash cans out to the curb SUNDAY EVENING and back in Monday afternoon. Please ensure the trash is secure (close the lid) and in tied up trash bags to eliminate flies or rodents. We would do it but don't want to bother your privacy.

Brand New BBQ – Just turn each knob to light and then to your desired heat temperature. Let the BBQ heat up to clean the grill. We've supplied BBQ utensils next to the BBQ, on top of the counter next to stove or the right hand drawer next to the sink.

Electric Pellet Bigger BBQ grill - Ensure there are pellets in the hopper, at least a ¼ full. Make sure the temperature dial is on smoke all the way to the left/counter clockwise. Turn the smoker on by flipping the power switch. Leave on smoke for 5 minutes to start it. Smoke should come out the chimney. Once you see smoke coming out you may adjust the temperature. When done, turn the power off and turn the temperature to smoke so it is in the starting position for the next person. Don't leave unattended. If the temperature drops, turn BBQ, remove your food, lift the grill plates, clean the fire pit then start from the beginning. Best place to plug in is in the garage in between door and window but away from the house not to get the smoke into the home. Here is the closest place to buy pellets: Here is a link to the closest place with the pellets for the smoker. (website hidden)
Meanley & Son Hardware
7756 Girard Ave
La Jolla, CA 92037
Open today
7:00 am – 6:00 pm

Cleaning Supplies, Paper Towels, and Toilet Paper – Cleaning supplies and trash bags are under the sink and the vacuum is in the front hall closet next to front door. There is a handle held vacuum next to the garage door charging. In the garage on the top of the draws are extra paper towels. Toilet paper is stored under the bathroom sinks and a Costco supply is in the guest bathroom lower cabinets next to the toilet. Plungers are under both bathroom sinks. I hire a professional cleaning crew to clean the place from 10 am to 4 pm on check out day before the next guest. Please let us know if they missed something and we'll send them out immediately. Toiletries are under both bathroom sinks.

Cleaning - There is a one time housekeeping fee so the place is clean for you and your guests. Occasionally, a spot may be missed even though we have someone inspect the place before your check in. Let us know right away as my housekeeper will come back to ensure the place is perfect. We can also schedule a weekly cleaning if you are staying at my home for longer than a week or have made arrangements to clean after a special gathering. We want you to enjoy the house and your family and friends as it is your vacation.

Roomba Daily Vacuum - You can also turn on the Roomba daily. Just hit the middle green button to run (if red needs more charging). YOU MUST USE THE ENTIRE LIFE OF THE BATTERY before you charge for the next day so ensure it has run the entire battery before returning to the docking station next to the garage door in the living room. If the battery isn't used the vacuum time diminishes dramatically. If the Roomba gets caught on a rug or furniture just pick it up and start again to use the entire battery. To charge, just return it to the cradle and ensure both green lights are lit on the docking station and the middle center light on the Roomba is pulsing to indicate it is taking a charge.

Sprinklers and Outdoor Lights - Both are programed to run at night (7 minutes Monday & Thursday) and lights from sundown to 10 pm (quiet time). If the timer is off, I can instruct you to program or run over to reprogram.

Kitchen Counter Tops – Please do not leave water on the counter tops (recently sealed) or let the water drop on the cabinets as this causes damage to the cabinets. (Super sensitive)

Dishwasher Operation: After filling, Press ON/OFF Button, black dial should be set to ECONOMY, press black START button. Dishwasher takes a few hours to complete a full cycle. I've recently added rock salt and a solution to eliminate mineral deposits/white stains from San Diego water.

Clothes Washer- Set dials to QUICK WASH, Press START/PLAY button. Thank you for starting a load of towels and sheets when you leave.

Dryer – Set dial to NORMAL on SENSOR side, Press START/PLAY button.
PLEASE DUMP ALL SAND FROM CLOTHES BEFORE WASHING AND DRYING THEM. SAND BREAKS THE MACHINES. Thank you.

Iron is located above the dryer on the shelf and Ironing Board is located behind the washer.

Playroom/Gym/Garage – You'll find sporting goods and beach boogie boards in the garage. Feel free to use the cardio equipment and weights at your own risk. The garage opener is on the wall next to the kitchen door and labeled for a view and extra ocean breeze air while working out. We unplug the garage door opener (ceiling above) to eliminate the noise when we have guests use the futon or Murphy bed.

No Air Conditioning – You won't usually need it but there are fans in the closets of each bedroom. Please use the fans in the bathroom after taking a shower and leave the solid glass door showers open to air it out and eliminate any moisture.

Treadmill – Flip POWER switch (red) to ON (up) on front side base of treadmill (side towards TV). Please flip POWER switch off when done. The plug is behind the TV marked “Treadmill" so you don't have to see blinking lights when not in use.

All Three Televisions – The WHITE remotes are the DIRECTV remotes which control both the TV and the cable boxes. The ON buttons will turn both TV and cable box on. The controls from there are self explanatory. The remote button (top middle slider) must be on DIRECTV and input on 7. DIRECTV instructions and channel lineup are in a folder in the house binder. Occasionally we need to reboot the system. Unplug the main receiver under the table in the living room for 15 seconds. DIRECTV has notes in the account to troubleshoot if the rebooting doesn't work. Call (phone number hidden) and give them my name and phone number (Laura Christine, (phone number hidden)) so they can check the signal strength then troubleshoot and/or send a tech person.

Music – Music and TV are separate systems. The black Samsung remote controls the music/Samsung. To play music, I've bought an adapter to plug in your iPhone and/or MP3 player. Turn on with red power button on the remote. Control the volume on the Samsung remote. To turn off, hit the red power button again.

Refrigerator – the door makes ice and access to filtered water. The back lever in the side door is ice and the front level is filtered water. I've labeled accordingly. I change the filter every six months or sooner.

Stove Hood – Please watch your head. We've received some input from very tall vacationers that they've hit their heads.

Dining Room & Den Tables – The dining room and den round tables are very easily marred by water or hot plates. Please use the board place settings (cloth ones don't cut it) and coasters when eating at the table. Thank you!

Fireplaces (Living Room and Front Patio) – The fireplaces are gas operated. Simply turn the gas valve key slightly and light using an extended lighter (provided). When done, turn the gas valve key back to the CLOSED/OFF position firmly. If not firmly turned off gas will continue to leak out presenting a dangerous health/hazard situation. There are two smoke detectors in the living room and just outside the master bedroom which are also carbon monoxide detectors for your safety.
*There are fire extinguishers located: In the cabinet above the refrigerator, in the lower pullout drawer located directly to the left of the fridge, and in the garage on the floor directly to the right of the kitchen entrance door below the hanging basket of athletic balls. Flash lights are located in the garage on top of drawers next to the washer machine and in the right hand drawer next to the stove. Please take note of their location for your own safety.

Linen Closet - There are extra sheets, blankets and a vacuum cleaner (if you need it) located in the closet right next to the front door. All bed sheets have been washed and changed prior to your arrival. Feel free to throw all used sheets and towels in the washer before you leave.

Guest Bathroom – There are extra towels, beach towels and washcloths and sample size toiletries in the guest bathroom. Please run the fan in the guest bathroom on a timer, open window and oscillate after you take a shower to air out the bathroom. Thank you. Both bathrooms leave the shower doors open otherwise the showers trap moisture.

Landscapers – Wed. afternoon (noon to 4 pm) and they love to have some water.

Phones – No landline. Cell phones may use Wi-Fi see internet for the password.

Water Shut Off – To turn off the water, in the front of the house next to the garage (on the right side if looking towards the garage) is a hose and water shut off.

Electrical Box - On the east side of the house where the garbage cans are stored are two electrical boxes near the blue gate. All the switches are labeled. There is another box on the other side of the wall in the garage.
Please set aside any mail that may be delivered. We have set the mail to be put on hold; but you know the post office
There is delivery food menus located in the house binder if you would like to order food. (Some threw out the menus at the end of July (maybe they spilled something on them so if you go to any local restaurant that you like please help me replace the menus to pay forward.)

Added Bonus – Every night in the summer at approx. 9:30 pm you will hear fireworks going off from SeaWorld. If you step out on the front patio you will be able to see them above the roof of the house to the Southwest.
If you booked your reservation via airbnb.com here are some key numbers:

RESERVATIONS ARE NOT VALID UNTIL AFTER APPROVED BY MANAGEMENT AND FULL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED FROM TENANT, AIRBNB, (website hidden), (website hidden) OR ANY OTHER BOOKING ENGINE.
Excessive noise, house parties, or violations of any of the terms of this agreement will be grounds for imposition of a minimum $500.00 fine and/or immediate termination of occupancy. Homeowners Association imposes a $500 fine if I get ONE call or text from the neighbors. If the police are called by the neighbors the Homeowner's Association fines you $1000 and you may also be cited by the police an additional $1000. Tenant/Guest agrees to closely read and abide by the Terms of the Agreement and assumes the responsibility to ensure their guests and any visitors abide as well.

If the notice of cancellation is received less than 30 days prior to check- in date, Tenant will forfeit all rent sums paid unless Property rented and confirmed to another tenant at the same rate for the same time period, which will result in a charge of 10% of the original rental amount. There are no refunds for early departures, delayed arrivals, inclement weather or reduction in the number of nights reserved for any reason. Trip cancellation insurance is highly recommended. If the subject property becomes unavailable or unsuitable for rent for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to, casualty loss, construction, physical deterioration, double booking or loss of utility services, the Laura Christine or Managers liability will be limited to the return of all monies paid to the rental (not booking service fees which do not come from us) at the time of cancellation by the Laura Christine or Manager.

Any damages that exceed $3,000.00 will be charged to Tenant.
