5 Amazing Airbnbs in La Jolla: Better than a La Jolla Hotel | LaJolla.com

5 Incredible Airbnbs in La Jolla That Will Blow Your Mind

The hotels in La Jolla are tough to beat — beautiful, luxurious, and panoramic views for miles. But there is something to be said for the unique, home-away-from-home aspect of an Airbnb in La Jolla; especially when they are as jaw-dropping as some of the rentals we found in the heart of the Village!

Not staying in a hotel definitely doesn’t mean you have to lose the luxe aspect of your vacation (or staycation). Here are 5 of the most breathtaking La Jolla Airbnbs — from mini castles to cliffside mansions.

Castle in the Hills

Where else in San Diego can you — literally — stay in a castle? Well, technically it’s a villa; but its Mexican oak doors, walnut wood floors, hand-chiseled Mexican Cantera stone and antique tiles imported from Spain say otherwise. Multiple gardens and fountains will remind you of old Europe, and the master suite opens to an authentic loggia and garden. Vaulted ceilings and Moorish-style domes complete the pretty much perfect picture. The aptly named “Villa Country Club” is a vacation in La Jolla done right!

Dreamy Ocean Views

Just when you thought you’d seen everything, another one comes along. This unbelievable 4-bedroom villa has panoramas from every room in the house — especially the cliffside infinity pool. This is seriously an Airbnb unlike anything we’ve seen in La Jolla, and boasts 3 levels and 6,000 square feet of pure luxury.

The property includes an elevator, spacious decks, outdoor BBQ area and fire pit, and of course, the vanishing edge pool and spa. Even the four-car garage has floor to ceiling windows! Come for the views, stay for the…views?

Mid-Century Modern Charmer

This historically-designated 5-bedroom, 3-bath is full of Mid-Century Modern flair, complete with redwood walls and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Unique and architecturally stunning, this gem is definitely for the history buffs! Built in 1951 and sitting on a whopping 26,000-acre lot, the house features Roche Bobois, Ligne Roset, Baughman, and BDI furniture. It has a huge upper deck with ocean views and is just five minutes away from one of the most beautiful hikes in La Jolla — the Coast Walk!

Ultra-Modern Beach House

Ever wanted to stay in an award-winning house? Now’s your chance! This amazing 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath modern mansion was featured in the Winter 2015 edition of California Homes magazine and seriously lives up to its name. A huge glass wall separates the inside living area from the outside front patio and completely retracts, so you can fully experience the beautiful weather La Jolla offers year round!

Plenty of modern art, decor, and furniture give it a unique vibe, and all the luxurious creature comforts (especially the bathtub next to the floor-to-ceiling window on the second floor) are enough to make us never want to leave! It’s also located right in La Jolla Shores, which is chock-full of incredible restaurants and great water activities.

Tropical Oasis

Hiking and outdoor aficionados, this one is for you! “Casa del Mar” is a 4-bed, 5-bath, 6,000 sq-ft modern oasis surrounded by trees and landscaping near the golf course. A garden-like outdoor patio and jacuzzi sits on one level while an outdoor living space (complete with a fire pit and couches) occupies another, this is definitely a space for enjoying Mother Nature — there are even stairs down to grass and a small garden area.

The interior features its own set of interesting features; black cabinets paired with wood floors and some epic modern art combine to create an eclectic getaway.
