A Home to fall in love with!

 It's almost impossible to find the words to recommend this gorgeous property highly enough! Booking a "home from home" from the UK to house our family for 12 days whilst in La Jolla for our son's wedding was rather daunting but from the first telephone conversation with Gary we felt reassured this was a reliable site and the house was a true reflection of the description on the website ... well almost ... the house and it's location are even better!  We were greeted with such warmth by Gary and Tina who couldn't have been more helpful and informative, we felt we had known them forever.  From the moment we set foot over the threshold we were in love with their house.  It was so perfect for our family (all adults but we still made good use of the games room!). Beautiful rooms, tastefully furnished, wonderful views and a magical evening spent in the courtyard room watching an eclipse of the moon. This is a rare and perfect gem, it is everything the other positive reviews say and more, we hope to return as soon as we can. Thank you for everything Gary & Tina.

Beautiful home with magnificent views!
 Our family just spent a wonderful few days in La Jolla and we are so pleased that we chose this “Jewel in the Muirlands hills”.  From the time we arrived to the last day, Gary made us feel welcomed and was very accommodating.   We have rented many homes through HomeAway/VRBO and Gary has exceeded our expectations as a homeowner who takes pride in his home.
This house has a beautiful, spacious layout and is impeccably clean.   We couldn’t get enough of the spectacular ocean view. Coffee in the mornings and the sunset dinners on the balcony were special.   We enjoyed every room!  The kitchen is fully equipped and I truly enjoyed cooking dinner while looking out to the ocean.  We also had very relaxing moments in the pool and practicing on the putting greens.
Our 7 year old son didn’t want to leave! He enjoyed the game room with ping pong, hockey and soccer table games. This game room is a dream for little kids!  There are plenty of books to read in the library, games to play, and even exercise equipment to burn off all the food we enjoyed in La Jolla!
Gary provided a great list of restaurants and things to do in the area. We tried the Fishery Restaurant, French Gourmet, and Piatti Italian restaurant.  We also took our son to the San Diego Zoo as well as Legoland nearby.  The shops, restaurants, beaches are all within a few minutes away.
We had such a wonderful experience staying here that we are already planning when to come back. We appreciated every little detail that Gary has put into making this home comfortable and pleasant for his guests.

This isn't a house, it is a resort!
 Our family vacations include 4 generations ranging in age from 2-91 years old. This house was perfect for all of us. From the pool, to the putting green, to the game room, to the downstairs TV room we were so busy that we never got to the beach. During the day I read books from Gary's library and in the evening we played games that we found in the house. We are a family of cooks and enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and using the outdoor BBQ. We ate all of our meals on the deck enjoying the stunning views. Gary was very helpful and answered all of my questions prior to our arrival. Truely a great vacation.

 We found this house to be the PERFECT location for our small family reunion. The sunsets during dinner were awe inspiring. Our kids were constantly occupied when were home whether playing ping pong,  playing in the pool or watching a movie downstairs when the adults needed a break:). We did a lot of cooking at home, which was not a problem considering the kitchen was fully equipped.  Gary was so helpful by recommending local beaches and restaurants, which is invaluable information when you are not familiar with the area. I cannot say enough great things about this house, with kids, parents and grandparents, it can be difficult to find a house that appeals to all...but this one did!! I would agree with the previous review that said "even better than the pictures!"...Strong recommendation!

Looks great in pictures even better in person!
 My wife and I had our son and daughter's families for a family get together. Four children ages 3-8. House was perfect! Between the pool and game room, it was hard getting the kids to go to the beach! Ate on the deck overlooking the ocean most meals. Perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets. I forgot to bring a book but had a choice from over 100 in the book case. The home has a great layout for 3 couples with 4-5 children and plenty of space get away from all the activity when you need some piece and quiet. Gary (the owner) was always available to provide any help or information we needed. He takes great pride in this home were he raised his family, and he should.

An ideal setting for a family vacation!
 Excellent in all respects -- comfortable, lots of great amentities. lots of indoor activities (e.g., excercise room and ping pong) and outdoor activities (e.g., great pool and spa, putting green), very well equipped kitchen, lots of room to spread out, and on and on.  The view is fabulous, and it was only more so for watching La Jolla's July 4th fireworks display.  And Gary (the owner) was terrific in being available and helpful.  It was a great house for a multi-generation family vacation.  We had a wonderful time and we hightly recommend the house.

Perfect family getaway
 The beautiful home was the perfect place for our family which included two babies and young adults.It was very comfortable, the view was magnificent and the facilities which included a nice size pool and Jacuzzi and putting green and indoor games provided plenty of entertainment and fun.The large well stocked kitchen made cooking a pleasure.The location was perfect with some of the attractions being only a short drive away.The host was very friendly and made us feel very welcomed on the day of our arrival and during our entire stay.I highly recommend this property especially to families with children.

Best family vacation ever
 Our family with small children, stayed at this home after falling in love with the area during a business trip. The photos and description don't do the property and its amenities justice! Every last detail has been thought of - from the layout of the home, luxury pool, children’s toys/games right down to the travel coffee cups and tupperware.  The views are spectacular and we decided within 20 minutes that we were going to book another trip.  The location made access to shopping, restaurants, zoo, beaches and the aquarium a breeze with only minutes of driving.  The trouble was, you may not want to leave the house it is so amazing.  The home is obviously loved and cared for by the owner – who is also a superb host, willing to help us out at any point during our trip.  Needless to say we were all very sad to leave and look forward to going back (the kids won’t stop asking!). If I could give it more stars I would.
