Perks for the Parents

Take an easy family vacation at this stylish beach house in Bird Rock, La Jolla with stunning views of the ocean and unbeatable surf spots just a few steps away. It sleeps 6. Parents will love sitting at the ocean view terrace at all times of the year, watching the surf and enjoying the relaxed ocean view with amazing sunsets. The location is walkable to great restaurants, cafes, healthy eating places and wine bars, not to mention water sports and beautiful beaches. The host's top tip? Boost your immune system and mental performance with a dip in the Renu Therapy cold plunge tank in the garden.

Why Kids Love it

The house is great for toddlers, children and teenagers. The lush green backyard is a safe space to play (with no alley behind, a rarity in San Diego) and a fun spot to hang out - the hosts have an outdoor art and craft area where kids can paint, try out ‘experiments’ or relax under a tree. The ocean is close enough for even the littlest legs and at low tide there are small tide pools where kids can discover ocean animals. There are books in English and German, as well as tons of toys including American Girl Dolls, Lego., Schleich Horses with barn, dress-up clothes, 2 huge play horses to ride on, skateboards, scooters, 2 boogie boards and a surf board. Teenagers love the area as it's walkable to Starbucks, surf shops with food and other cafes.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights. Safety notes: there are stairs to reach the front door. The cold plunge is in the garden with a cover, but could be removed by children, so supervision is recommended. No food or red wine are permitted in the living room and usage of placemats for tableware and drinks on the dining table are essential. Parking is available in front of the house and on the street, although car rental is not necessary. Quiet hours are observed between 10pm and 6am. No parties and no visitors. The hosts have 2 kids bikes and 1 adult bike available to borrow. You can also rent bikes in the bike store nearby and cycle to La Jolla City Center, Windansea Beach or to Mission Bay in Pacific Beach.

We are a family of 4 from Munich, Germany, who lived all over the world - from Germany, China/Shanghai, Silicon Vally to La Jolla. Bird Rock La Jolla is the place we settled as its family friendly with amazing surfing, restaurants, museums and much more. When we go home to Germany we offer our beach oasis to other families that they get the chance to enjoy our home, the amazing location, great surf, beaches and our fantastic neighbourhood.

Seals, sea lions and surf town charm

Not only are you within easy reach of Legoland, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wild Animal Park, but there are fantastic family-friendly beaches on the doorstep and some great new friends to make. Stroll along Coast Boulevard to the Children’s Pool to see the town’s famous seals and sea lions; surf, snorkel or explore tide pools on the beach, and find out more about the local wildlife at the Birch Aquarium.
