The Castle in the Sky has amazing views and a fabulous location for enjoying LaJolla and San Diego. It was great to have bathrooms for every bedroom. We loved the pool, hot tub, and pool table and had a great celebration dinner in the spacious dining room. The home is furnished with unique antique furniture. The large sectionals let our whole crew gather to watch football, though as some others have mentioned some chairs are showing their age. We also found the lighting a bit dark (for cooking), but overall loved it.

The location of the house itself was beautiful, great location! The house was nice, but the listing told us it had 7 bedrooms with a bonus room, when we got there, there were 5 bedrooms. So we had 4 beds that we were counting on, that we didn’t have. Check in was at 4:00 pm. We arrived at 4:06. The owner was suppose to meet us there. I text and called a couple hrs early to let him know of our arrival time. We don’t get an answer. When we got there, no one was there. We text and called again, no answer. We finally found the key under the door mat and let ourselves in. There was check in papers on the table (which could’ve been emailed to me but were not) we called the number on the check in papers, the woman told us she hadn’t helped with that property in 15 years. Finally at 530 the owner called us to see if we were ok. He was in Cabo and his son was suppose to meet us. Apparently the son got tired of waiting for us and left at 4. (Check in time) no calls, no texts, no note on the door, just left. The owner was nice, and apologized no one was there to meet us. All in all the stay was great, other than the two missing rooms and 4 missing beds! The location couldn’t have been better, and the pool was wonderful. They should spray for ants though, there were ants everywhere out by the pool

We had a wonderful stay. The views were breathtaking and we really enjoyed the pool. We were there over the Fourth of July and were treated to a spectaular fireworks display. We loved the location of the home. We had 11 people in our family group and it was perfect for our size.

My husband and I rented the castle in the sky for 6 nights. We brought along our children/ spouses and grandchildren, for a total of 14. The house had plenty of room for us to spread out, but not so big that we felt disconnected from each other. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals each evening. The pool and hot tub were great with amazing views of the Pacific ocean. Dave graciously allowed us to check in early on day of arrival as well. He also stopped by the next day to check on us and answer any questions we had. We were able to make wonderful memories with our family in La Jolla.

The house was as advertised. It accommodated our family of 9 very easily. So much room to roam we had to text one another on occasion. Perched high on the hill overlooking La Jolla and the Pacific Ocean was truly spectacular. Pool was large for us all to enjoy along with the hot-tub. Property was conveniently located to grocery store and many restaurants. Enjoyed the fact every bedroom had its own private bathroom. David was a charismatic and awesome host who was very quick to respond to us when needed. Would definitely like to come back again in the future. If you want to feel like you are on "top of the world", well then this is the place for you and your guests. You won't be disappointed.

Property is true to the reviews, so I would recommend any future travellers read them thoroughly. Furniture is older, but this is a benefit when travelling with small children, as you are less concerned about them ruining anything. There are not doors on many of the bathrooms, which can be an issue for privacy. Many of the bedrooms do not have dark window coverings, which can be an issue for families with small children who need nap times, or who go to bed before the sunsets. Basic maintenance is not performed on a regular basis, I.e. bathroom sink drains need to be snaked clear. However, the views are spectacular, the space is huge, which allows for a large group to feel comfortable. We enjoyed its many amenities, such as the very large patio, swimming pool and hot tub. The host is very responsive should you encounter difficulties. Overall, we shared a great time together with extended family, in this perfectly situated home.
