La Jolla Vacation Rental - AllStar Vacation Homes
Your vacation is a time to relax and let go of stress, so begin it with a trouble-free search for a La Jolla Vacation rental or hotel. La Jolla offers many beautiful and reliable places to choose from. Here’s a few booking strategies to make your search painless.

La Jolla Vacation Rentals

A La Jolla vacation rental is great if you want a more private experience or are interested in trying something new. Don’t wade through hundreds of listings or risk a rental from Airbnb! Instead, avoid a surprise of no air conditioning or a broken sofa by going through a rental company.

“There are scams out there,” says Michelle Aarons, owner and manager of La Jolla Vacation Rentals. “We get people who call and say [they] rented our house and we say ‘No, you didn’t’ because people steal our photos and put them on Craigslist.”

La Jolla Cottages, La Jolla Vacation Rentals, and All Star Vacation Homes have collections of detailed house profiles easy to browse from home. Their wide ranges of prices, sizes and locations are sure to include your perfect La Jolla vacation rental. The whole family’s welcome as many are pet friendly!

Aarons said the “number one thing” she recommends people do is check the references and reviews which all legitimate vacation rental websites will have. Other things to look for?

“Get in touch with the people you’re booking with, see if they call you back right away, because that will be representative of your stay there,” Aarons said. When making your plans, ask what comes with your La Jolla vacation rental. Are linens and towels provided? What about beach toys, bikes, or strollers? These companies provide all of this and more, but you may not be so lucky somewhere else.
