Forget the rest, you've found the best! Very rare historic La Jolla Beach Cottage in an incredible location. Wonderful ocean views await and the beach is just steps away from this beautifully finished vacation home. The home is on Ocean Lane between Coast Boulevard and Prospect Street, right in the very heart of the Village of La Jolla.

Step inside this 1930's era beach cottage and prepare to be impressed. Some of the highlights include hardwood flooring, a wood-finished cathedral ceiling offset by remote-controlled skylights that open for a sunroof effect. Bay windows offer dramatic ocean views from the living room, dining area and master suite. Off the master suite is the bathroom with shower  The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware, appliances and dishes needed to prepare your favorite delicious meals, along with plenty of counter space and a period-inspired Northstar refrigerator and Convection oven. In the living room there is a gas fireplace to warm the evenings along with a comfy couch where you can relax and watch your favorite shows on the flat-screen HDTV, included with HBO.

Or if you'd like to spend a lazy day in bed, you have the choice to watch a show on the flat–screen in the master or be relaxed by the ocean views!

Guests at Casa de las Olas can take a brief stroll down to the ocean and La Jolla Cove. Extraordinarily beautiful, La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed shorelines in Southern California. Because it is a protected Ecological Reserve, marine wildlife abounds. Water visibility at the Cove can sometimes exceed 30 feet, making it a very popular spot for Scuba, snorkeling and kayaking.

Shopping in La Jolla tends toward the unusual and upscale; designer fashions, expensive jewelry, ethnic artifacts, priceless antiques, oriental rugs and exotic cars. Prospect Street is the spot for fine-dining, including many five-star options perched overlooking the ocean. The most popular offerings are fresh seafood and Mexican cuisine, but you can find anything from scrambled eggs to sushi among the many and varied eateries throughout La Jolla. Ask your Bluewater Concierge for suggestions. We'll find just the right place for your palette!

With its spectacular coastline, temperate climate and dramatic views, it's no wonder that La Jolla was one of the first San Diego neighborhoods to be settled, and has since become home to some of the most prized and expensive real estate in the nation. Surrounded on three sides by the sea and backed by the steep slopes of Mt. Soledad, La Jolla has a Mediterranean feel and enjoys a unique microclimate which rarely drops below 50 degrees or exceeds 90 degrees. We welcome you to experience all that La Jolla has to offer and be our guest at Casa de las Olas.

We have another cottage, Casa del Sol, in the same location in case you have more in your group. Call the Bluewater Vacation Homes team for help finding the perfect home for your group or for assistance planning your vacation to San Diego. Once you arrive, our guest services team is available 24/7 to ensure you have an exceptional experience.

Blue Water Vacation Homes handled our reservation expertly and were very responsive to our questions. The ability to have groceries left in the house prior to our arrival was a great touch. We'd definitely rent with them again.
This is the perfect little beach house. Wonderful view of the ocean (bright and airy) and exceptionally convenient to shops, restaurants etc. Although it doesn't come with parking, we had no problem finding off-street parking. We loved our stay and would recommend it for a couple.

Bluewater Vacation Homes was a great find. Though we didn't have a lot of contact with the staff, other than email, what contact we did have was professional and friendly.
We stayed in this property for two weeks. We really enjoyed being so close to the ocean. We spent one whole week on the beach swimming, sunbathing, and reading. Having the home so close by, we were able to have picnic lunches and daily evening walks to the Cove for beautiful sunsets. There are a million restaurants within walking distance and so much to see and do. A wonderful place to just unwind and relax. We will definitely book this home again in the future.
