Reviewed 16 April 2014

Lovely place that is only a couple blocks to restaurants, shops, and children's cove where the harbor seals hang out. People who run it are all very friendly. In theory parking could be limited but since most of the immediate buildings are public buildings if you are there on a weekend it won't be a problem; we parked right in front of it both days we were there. Breakfasts, while delicious, can also be very rich. may be best creme brûlée I've ever had.

Room Tip: we were in Cove which I think was smallest room but was fine for our needs. some rooms are directly...

Glad you enjoyed your visit with us. Our Chef Steve and Margaret ( innkeeper and also chef during the week ) thank you for complimenting their culinary talents. We try to make our 3 course breakfast extra special since it is a major part of the B&B experience. Thank you again.

A great getaway to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.
The home is an architectural gem with historic significance.
Easy to find--I don't know what that one reviewer was on that said it was hard to locate--totally ignore that reviewer as none of his comments applied.
All the food was delicious. The garden delightful.
It is an historic inn.
That makes it much better in our view, but if you prefer all new construction go elsewhere.
All of the staff was warm, friendly & helpful.

Good price. Walking distance to the cove and to shopping. It was a perfect romantic getaway. Friendly staff, delicious food. Fresh flowers in the room, beautiful decor, comfortable bed. Beautiful garden. The house is cozy, with furniture to fit the historic building.

I recently spent 9 nights at this beautiful and relaxing Inn. I have never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before so was a little apprehensive at first, once I arrived though I knew that I had made the right decision. The care from all the staff was exceptional, the rooms all had their own uniqueness that gave a special warmth. I have many allergies including foods, Margaret made sure that a special breakfast was made for me each morning and Bradley and Theresa took special care for my special snack to go with my wine each evening. The opportunity to meet other individuals staying at the Inn was a great treat.The Inn is close to shopping, galleries, fabulous restaurants and long walks along the boardwalk and beaches. I highly recommend.

Because of work being done around my home, I needed to find a place to stay for a few days. I have lived in San Diego for several decades and never knew of the Inn's existence. It is among the best I have stayed and right in the heart of La Jolla. The 100 year old building is immaculate, well appointed, in a garden setting and a few blocks from the beach. Within walking distance to fantastic restaurants and shops, the location is ideal.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast delicious. Tea, freshly baked cookies, and a wine and appetizer hour add to the experience.

I would highly recommend this delightful Inn.

Room Tip: The Inn is on a quiet street. Every room I looked at was charming.

Thank you for staying with us and giving us such a nice review. We do consider ourselves the Gem among B&Bs in La Jolla. Maybe that is because we are the only truly, permitted B&B accommodation in La Jolla. Please stop by to say hello and visit with us over wine and cheese when you are nearby.

This was the perfect weekend. The service and breakfast were fantastic. If you want a place that is quaint to just sit in the corner to read, or be able to take a nice relaxing walk, or visit some nearby unique little stores, restaurants, and coffee joints this is the place. There are also a some name brand luxury stores in walk distance as well. UC San Diego, the La Jolla Coves, Pacific Beach, Balboa Park, and Carlsbad are all nearby. You do need a car to get around, but this place is centrally located. Each room is uniquely decorated. In the desks are logs of previous guests and their experience in the B&B. It was so interesting to read other people's experience in the same room, this B&B and in La Jolla. What a truly relaxing stay. Loved every minute here.

Room Tip: Check out the website for pictures of the rooms since each one is uniquely decorated.
