Stay Put in a La Jolla Vacation Rental
By Caitlin Moore

Southern California sounds like it has it all. Amazing beaches, sunsets to die for, and plenty of shopping, sightseeing, and recreational activities have you counting the days until your next vacation. Yes, you’ve decided to see what all the fuss is about by taking a trip to this seemingly magical region, and what better place to settle down than in enchantingly-named La Jolla?

Known for its beaches and attractive shopping and dining options, this town is located just a few miles from San Diego. This means it makes a great jumping off point for any number of excursions, and for the days when you feel like staying close to “home” you’ll find yourself close and connected to all number of things. Beautiful stretches of coastline will satisfy your yearnings for the sea, up-to-the minute boutiques will keep shopaholics happy, and a plethora of events make strolling and people watching fine ways to spend an afternoon.

So your La Jolla vacation is shaping up to be fantastic, in your mind’s eye anyway. Now all you have to do is make reservations for a place to stay. You’d like to avoid doing the same old thing, especially since you’re breaking from your usual routine by going to the jewel of Southern Cali. Taking a glance at all the vacation rental options in this area might be a wise choice, as you’re likely to uncover a true gem.

For example, if you’ve always been attracted to southwestern styled architecture, take the opportunity to settle into an adobe home like the ones you’ve seen on your favorite California-themed television shows. Beautifully furnished and outfitted with a king-sized bed, washer and dryer, and an inviting kitchen perfect for making snacks and quick meals, you’ll feel free to come and go as you please with minimal stress. The French doors lead to a patio, making casual cocktails a guarantee, and the best part is that you’ll have all of this and still be within walking distance of everything you hope to see and do.

If you plan to travel with a larger group (or simply want to pretend that you’re a west coast millionaire), then go for a three-story home with master suite and decks overlooking the beach on every level. The spa tub will keep your muscles relaxed, not that you’ll have much to stress about as you nap, swim, and frolic to your heart’s content.

All of your companions will have room to spread out, so tension over sharing beds and bathrooms will be absent this vacation. Remembering your last trip and the occasional conflicts that cast temporary darkness on the fun-loving mood, you admit that this alone will make the whole venture worthwhile.

Remember, anywhere you choose to unpack your bags in the area of La Jolla will have you conveniently located to all that that San Diego county has to offer. Hiking, biking, parasailing, surfing, horseback riding, theatres, cinemas, and museums are just a few examples. It might take a while to see all that there is to see, so hopefully you’ve saved up enough vacation days to take a long dip into this sparkling sea of activities.

The bottom line is that a vacation rental will give you plenty of freedom and will add to your trip in the best ways possible. The abundance of choices might be overwhelming (do you go with a beachside villa or an urban-style condo?) but if this is the worst of your problems, you’re probably doing okay.

Go online to imagine yourself unlocking the door to a few different La Jolla Vacation Rentals, and then reserve the one that best fits your style, mood, and expectations. This is your time to get away from it all, so congratulate yourself for doing things right.
