When we arrived to the house, we noticed there wasn't air conditioning- we were a little shocked- it was pretty warm in September. As we started the 20 fans in the house, the house cooled quickly. We did have some trouble getting a parking space on the weekends, however, during the week, we didn't have a problem. All in all, the house was clean, comfortable, and safe. It was central to everything and WindandSea Beach is gorgeous. We went to the grocery store- Von's- right down the road and cooked almost every meal in the kitchen the week we were there. The patio/backyard was wonderful--creating additional space for our 2 boys ages 9 and 6. The beds were super comfy and the bathrooms were small but we worked with it. My husband is 6'5 and had some trouble getting in and out of the shower. With all of the windows open and the fans running we were afraid to leave the house open to go on our excursions, but we did and had no problems. The only hiccup we had with our stay was at the San Diego Zoo, when our car was broken in to. That was a bummer. All and all, it was a wonderful trip, a great house, and some wonderful memories for our 2013 family vacation!
This home is very spacious, larger than we expected from the photos, and the fenced back yard is great. Only a small parking lot separates the house from LaJolla Blvd,so while in the yard,the street noise is considerable, but it is quiet inside the house. We were concerned about parking on the street, but had no problems, although summer guests may have more issues. The house was spotless and the kitchen well equipped, with the exception of no garbage disposal.
I liked the space and the courtyard. Location to beach and villige was fine.
But this is and old and slitent beachhouse,very simple and I think we paid to much for this vacationexperience. Did not have any contact propertymanagement,even if they said they would come by. Conclusion was not value for money. Read more

My family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at the 521 Fern Glen property. It was bright and spacious inside with a nice backyard, clean, within walking distance of downtown, and just a couple blocks from the beach. The home is located in a pleasant neighborhood, which allowed our middle-school aged children to venture to the beach by themselves. This was a very pleasant and enjoyable place to stay.
Fleeing the AZ July Heat, this Retreat Exceeded Our Expectations

We parked the car and didn't drive again for 4 full weeks at this lovely beach cottage. The location was perfect for us! Large church parking lot and tall hedgeline buffer this cutie house from La Jolla Blvd. Less than 2 blk walk to Windnsea Beach and
many other beaches. Everyday, we walked to beaches, the town and every possible convenience incl. groceries, restaurants (so many fabulous places to eat) by the dozen, boutiques, museum, ice cream/yogurt, coffee houses, comedy store, bookstores, pharmacies,
tailors, galleries, tennis courts, running track, Seal Beach (really called Children's Beach) etc. This and the surrounding streets teem with beautiful cottages and mansions. So much to see. In the house, the rooms are big and just as pictured. The main room
is my favorite with its high beamed ceiling and comfy couches. The kitchen is fully stocked with every day-to-day flatware, cooking, and dish/cup/mug need. Every part of the house was spit-spot upon entry and topped with a beautiful vase of fresh cut sunflowers.
Kitchen and full bath counters are vintage 50s-60s style and create a cool vibe. Modern gas stove worked great. Dishwasher worked great as well. The fridge was so clean, it looked like it had never been used. We managed just fine with the 1 full bath (generously
stocked with fresh clean beach and bath towels). We usually had 5-6 guests and had no problem sharing the big bathroom for showers. Laundry closet and baths include the basic cleaning supplies and tools (or you can request/pay for maid service, though we opted
to just clean after ourselves). The WiFi worked perfectly -- our college-aged teens were able to do online summer school classes without a single hiccup from any part of the house. So many places to dine and spread out. The bedroom mattresses were extremely
comfortable, and bed linens were super clean, fresh and in great supply -- plenty of pillows and extra comforters. Lots of seating throughout house and
