We just returned from an eight day stay at La Jolla Caribe. It was wonderful. The villa had wonderful views, any time of day and was comfortable for all. We traveled with our three children (20, 23, 25) and a good family friend. The setup of the villa worked well for us. There are two bedrooms on the first level (1 queen, 2 twins) My husband and I and our son stayed on this level. This is also where the living/dining room, kitchen are. Next level down has 1 queen, 2 twins and share a bathroom. This worked well for the girls. On this level there is also another TV room/ possible bedroom with 2 twins (no bathroom.) The third level down has a bedroom with a king bed and a bathroom (Small shower) There is also a seperate 3/4 bath on this level. The hot tub is located on this deck. The bedroom on this level has screens for windows and flaps that roll down to keep out the sun in the am.
Washer dryer are located outside in the hallway on the second level. Also extra snorkel equipment, floats, water shoes in the cupboard. Lot's of beach chairs too, all in good condition.
This house worked great for us. People could spread out if they wanted to or stick together to eat, play games etc. I don't think it would work well for a family with small children (multiple decks, all outside doors to various bedrooms)but older kids, it's great. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pans, dishes etc. Would recommend getting a couple of bigger casserole type of dishes for a house that can sleep 12 people, but we made out fine. There was a constant breeze adn it was never uncomfortable heat wise. We had no problem with no see ums either. It was just pleasant all of the time!
We had a great experience with Destination St. John. Had a problem with the downstairs TV (no picture, just sound) They came out that day and fixed it, Then came back the next day with a new TV! Thanks Jamie! Any questions we had they were great about getting back to us prompty. Overall it was a great time and I look forward to renting again in the near future.
