Oh, What a Find! A Treasure hidden away form the crowded highrises that protect it from discovery. Yes! and parking space at the pathway to cozy cottages, modern, fully equipped but clearly of a quieter era snuggled beneath trees. Fresh air through the windows in the day, a cozy electric fire place in the morning. Five minute walk to the...

We recently stayed in the pricey 3-BR "cottage" here. First of all, the term cottage, to me, seems like a self-contained house. Unfortunately, that was not the case here, and a large extended family shared a 2BR which was directly OVER our unit. These places are not well insulated, and we heard EVERYTHING! They rose at 6:30 AM and went...

I recently stayed in the Redwood Hollow cottages for the first time, based on a recommendation from a friend; my oldest is attending UCSD, so I thought I would check it out. I stayed in the one bedroom Wisteria cottage and it was lovely! This is a beautiful group of cottages, originally built in 1915, and updated over the years...

Tucked away amongst modern buildings beautifully furnished Cottages with tropical foliage. Peaceful & comfortable. Close to the ocean and town! A great trip around San Diego! Check out the seals at La Jolla Cove Recommend eating in the Gaslamp district! Meza restaurant & Chocolat Cremerie for dessert a must.

We stayed at Redwood Hollow for four days between Christmas and New Year's. It was a great birthday celebration for my husband. Accommodations were good in our studio apartment with comfortable bed and adequate kitchen for breakfasts there. We walked a lot each day, to the beach, to the town, to meals and just for the fun of it-- averaged...

Location is outstanding. Overall nice, clean, helpful staff - but missing quite a bit. I would absolutely not recommend this as a place to stay with kids. There is NOT a shower in the master bathroom - and the only tub is lacking a plug - but worse, the paint is peeling off the inside of the tub. Not just...

Thank you so much for your review. We do find it helpful when guests are not completely satisfied so we can make any adjustments and corrections where needed. You are correct that there is not a shower in the master bathroom, and we don't advertise as such. This particular cottage has 2 bathrooms, one of which has a shower, and...

I just returned from a weekend at the Redwood Hollow Cottages, and didn't want to leave! This is a gem in bustling La Jolla, situated in the quiet residential end of Prospect Street, and just a short walk to the beach. I stayed in Whispering Pines, which was quite roomy with a large and well-stocked kitchen and bath. There was...

We were looking for a relaxing, private, mini vacation, near the coast, away from "typical hotels" we both stay in for work travel. A place we could just enjoy hanging around, if we felt like it.

We loved this wonderful property with cottages situated in a private compound but still maintaining a feel for privacy. Located on a quiet street and a short walk to the beach, this is a great location for families or couples. Our stay included multiple families for a summer reunion vacation and the arrangement was exactly as we had hoped. The...

I stayed in Prospect Cove, a lovely well-planned and bijou one-bedroom cottage with summerhouse. It has its own ample patio area and I just wanted to stay, and stay, and stay.

We are so happy that you enjoyed Prospect Cove! This is one of our newest remodels (formerly Beach Haven Studio), and we are very proud of the way it turned out. I have to admit that I love the patio as well, and we have had several groups stay with us, and enjoy the seclusion and privacy back there. Thank...
