About our home

Our home is very comfortable with all the amenities! We have a large living room which is divided into the living area and the music area, complete with piano, drum set, several guitars, and amps. The kitchen opens up into the dining room, which is also quite large (table can easily seat ten). The living room and dining room both have sliding glass doors which open out onto our patio and decks. It feels very private as we live on a canyon and only have neighbors on two sides. There are 2 decks: the lower one, complete with outdoor seating and barbeque, has stairs leading down to the garden. There is a spiral staircase leading to the upper deck with a view of Mission Bay and the fireworks from Sea World. There are 3 bedrooms: the master bedroom has a queen size bed and its own bathroom. There is a double bed in the second bedroom and a queen size sofa bed in the TV room. We also have a very sweet cat (Penelope) who is not allowed outside.


More about us

  1. We are Janet - a clinical psychologist and author, Jules - a research scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Daniel - our 28 year old son, a filmmaker, who may or may not join us. Our cat, Penelope (aka Princess P) is very easy to care for, but if you are allergic, this is not the house for you. We love traveling. We spent 6 months living in Barcelona and have done several successful house exchanges. Look forward to hearing from you!

Where is it?


This is a great location. We are situated on Mt. Soledad in the seaside village of La Jolla (a neighborhood of San Diego). We are literally minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world - with great surfing and other water sports. There is also an Olympic size outdoor swimming pool about 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from our house. We are minutes from downtown La Jolla - with great restaurants, shopping, the Children's Pool where you can see seals and their pups on the beach, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Scripps Aquarium. Mission Bay Park, which has its own golf course and great bike paths is just down the hill. Downtown San Diego - with its vast array of cultural activities, Balboa Park, and the world famous San Diego Zoo - is a 15 minute drive. Mexico is only about a 40-minute drive.
