Review by Daniella from October 2020:
Ryan’s place is small and cozy. The views from this little apartment complex are amazing! The location is fantastic, a 2 minute walk to the La Jolla beach boardwalk and about a 5 minute walk to better buzz and other great restaurants in the La Jolla area. Ryan was a great host, super responsive and helpful with all our needs. I will say, please do read the description of the apartment to make sure it is a right fit. It is a bit small but regardless, it is a great stay by the beach. Would come back here to relax by the beach and take some surfing lessons.
Lovely La Jolla Cottage Minutes from the Beach
This cute little studio cottage offers a private patio and access to the backyard to sit down, unwind, read a book or watch the sunset from.

Beach House Chic apartment with amazing views. Location: 100 feet away from the water and 1 1/2 block away from the main Prospect street. it doesn’t get any better. Apartment: Spencer has decorated the apartment really well and very tidy and cozy. The bathroom is a little old school but the shower head was new and had perfect water pressure. Views: You have a view of the ocean from every window in this apartment. You can walk 2 minutes to get to the best sunset view in La Jolla. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in La Jolla.

Review by Demetrice November 2020:
This was truly a peaceful and beautiful experience. My family needed an opportunity to unplug and relax. Laura’s place did not disappoint! It was cozy and adorable! We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay! We loved watching the water all day from the sitting room! Then at night we made good use of the fire pit while enjoying a bottle of wine! The waves sang us to sleep every night. The cottage sits in the middle of La Jolla Village! You have access to coffee shops, bars, restaurants and boutiques within a 30 second walk! It was amazing and we will definitely come back!
Airbnb La Jolla – Budget Finds
La Jolla is not really a budget-friendly destination, so if you are really on a tight budget, I recommend checking out one of the hostels in Ocean Beach or Downtown San Diego.
With that in mind, the budget Airbnb La Jolla has to offer, are usually shared rooms or studios and including cleaning and service fees and taxes are still close to or upwards of $150+/night. Just a word of warning, so you don’t get sticker shock.
Here are our top 3 budget La Jolla Airbnbs for a perfect for your vacation that will not break the bank (too much):
Private “man cave” in La Jolla home; A+ location!
This small studio casita shares a stunning backyard with the main house and features a pool and jacuzzi. Champagne taste on a beer budget is all I can say to that. This is perfect if you want a cute, simple place to stay and rather spend your money on other fun things while in La Jolla. Check for prices and availability here>>
