Soak in the grandeur of solid oak flooring and impressive high beam ceilings, while you enjoy the expansive open floor plan that provides two spacious living areas, a pool table, grand dining room with seating for 12 and a dream kitchen large enough for a private chef to host a banquet, not to mention the delight of premium Sub Zero and Viking appliances. Everyone will be entertained indoors with the state of the art electronics and large LCD televisions throughout, while outdoors you’ll get the best of California living with expansive decks, balconies, pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen with fridge and sink, and of course, stunning ocean views from nearly every room.

The first-floor master suite has a king size bed, an optional queen size pull out bed, panoramic ocean views, ensuite bathroom, and access to a large deck with ample lounge furniture. The second bedroom located on the first floor has a garden view, king size bed, and ensuite bathroom. The third and fourth bedrooms are upstairs in the South Wing, each has a queen size bed, stunning ocean views, and ensuite bathrooms. The North Wing has its own private entrance, separate living room with bar area, large flat screen tv and balcony. There is a bedroom with a queen size bed, a bathroom with a shower/tub combination and the living area is a divided sleeping area with a queen size bed and a queen size sofa bed, allowing the North Wing to sleep up to six comfortably.

In addition to the La Jolla Country Club next door, you will be delighted with the property’s close proximity to the finest shops and dining in the Village of La Jolla, not to mention numerous attractions and some of Southern California’s best beaches.

Fantastic property for Family Reunion
Our large and aging family found this property to be perfect for our family reunion. Five en suite bathrooms and a large kitchen with a commanding ocean view. Perfect.

Beautiful Property
We had a wonderful time. The property have an amazing view of the ocean. The owner is very helpful , always willing to assist. I had a family of 11 and everyone was extremely comfortable. The house is spread out with lots of room to roam around. Definitely would rent this property again.

Great location and property on top the hills of La Jolla with views of the ocean!
We stayed here with extended family of 4 grown children/spouses and their children! 9 adults and 6 children. Home is charming with large rooms to play and hang out, great pool area and spa. MLV is very responsive and genuinely cares about your stay.

Beautiful home in a lovely setting
Our family of 13 (eight adults and five children) enjoyed seven nights in this beautiful home in LaJolla to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Monarch is friendly, responsive, helpful. Views from the house and the pool are amazing overlooking the city and ocean. Great location; easy access to the beaches and stores, and to the greater San Diego area. We enjoyed the quietness and privacy of this location and property. We had more than enough space for cooking, dining, socializing, and sleeping, and enjoyed the pool, hot tub, pool table and large TV to watch World Cup soccer. A great place for a family vacation!

Had a great time at a beautiful property
Property was in a great location with a great view, particularly from the swimming pool area. Spacious, elegant, well-equipped and furnished. All the amenities you would need. The owner was very friendly and extremely helpful. My family (10 people including four children ranging from 8 to 19) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to anyone.

Stellar family vacation!
We stayed for 5 days to celebrate my 60th birthday and it was incredible. We did NOT want to even leave the property! We cooked in the massive kitchen and took turns eating in the elegant spaces from the dining room to the terrace to poolside! What a wonderful vacation we had!  We will certainly be back!

great family stay, wonderful host
Marvelous Views was a super accommodation for us, our children and grandchildren! We were in La Jolla for a family wedding and this house was wonderful to come home to in between events. We felt relaxed and comfortable, loved the pool and the view, and felt welcomed by our very accommodating host. We cooked and served several meals in the house and found everything we needed including an array of spices. Also a great place for family pictures! Centrally located, although peaceful and quiet, church, shopping, beach, restaurants, getting to activities just a short drive. Overall, we couldn't be more pleased or spoiled!

Awesome property such a fun place
Awesome property. Amazing time . Best host of a property that we have ever had. Accommodating on everything and anything. Can’t even really imagine a better location. The pool was so fun for the kids and adults. Great trip will stay there again for sure

View of a Lifetime!
The view from this beautiful mansion is amazing! All of La Jolla lays out before you with nothing blocking the view for 250 degrees of open ocean and twinkling city lights. Pour a glass of wine and don't miss a single sunset. The home is filled with museum-quality antiques completing the feel of a castle in the sky. Monarch Luxury Villas, the manager, is a delight and easy to work with for planning your stay. The home is well located for easy access to all the San Diego area has to offer, including wonderful restaurants and breweries. My entire family was thrilled with the pool / spa; we couldn't stay out of it!! It was heated for us to jump right in (extra fee for heating - be sure to ask!). Kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans/dishes. Bedrooms all have their own unique feel, are spaced out well for privacy and each has it's own bathroom. The master suite is HUGE! We would definitely return to this spacious, welcoming home.

Well named!
What a fun place to stay! Marvelous Views has been remodeled and added on to over the years, but it retains its lovely 1930s charm with an AMAZING panaramic view of the Pacific to boot. It easily accommodated a large group of us with many young children, as the rooms were spread out and there was more than enough living and outdoor space. Marvelous Views was also accessible enough for us to take daily walks to coffee shops, grocery stores, boutiques, restaurants and even farmers markets. It may benefit from a few updates here and there, but that is the only reason I didn’t give it a perfect rating.We arranged to have the pool heated, and it was the perfect temp for kids to play all day, everyday. In short, there is something special about Marvelous Views and it will be at the top of our list when we return to La Jolla.

This house was absolutely stunning and the view was spectacular!!!
12 of us (6 couples) recently stayed here for a birthday celebration and had the BEST experience! The home was perfect for us as there was plenty of gathering space but the bedrooms were spread out enough that we were not on top of each other. The pool and hot tub were great and the view from the deck/patio was unbelievable! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful views and spacious!
We had a fantastic visit at the end of March 2017. Three families with small kids had more than enough room to spread out and have privacy. The views are gorgeous, everything you need is close by, the pool and jacuzzi are great for a vacation destination, and the host was incredibly responsive and resourceful. We will certainly be returning again!

Over the top!
What an amazing place! This was perfect for our family - all enjoyed the house, the area and walking to La Jolla. The house is perfect for groups, everybody had their space but we could gather for wonderful meals, pool time and story telling. We all came from different places and this was perfect for us to re-unite. Everything we needed was there, well stocked and well furnished. We are coming back again and can't wait!

Amazing house, amazing view.
What a beautiful house. Our family gathered there for a week and had a wonderful time. The pool and hot tub were great and there were lots or pool toys for the little ones. The view was truely amazing and the sunsets unbelieveable.The kitchen had anything you could ever need and with two smaller refrigerators besides the one large one, there was plenty of room for extras. We had a party one day and were able to carefully fit 8 cars in the circular driveway. There is no parking on the street. We stored lots of extras in the huge laundry room that has 2 washers and 2 dryers. We loved the fact that there was a huge bedroom suite at the far end of the house where we put the teenagers.

We especially loved the pool, hot tub and the fabulous view!!! La Jolla and the area have something for everyone....all ages! Highly recommend! Thank you!

Son's Wedding Weekend
This was our first stay at Castle in the Sky. We use online resources like HomeAway, VRBO, etc., quite a bit for our family vacations and it can be challenging to find a home that can comfortably accommodate our group of 10 adults. We wanted a spacious home to be together to celebrate our son's wedding in San Marcos. This home suited us perfectly!! The home is well spread out with many bedrooms to choose from, each with their own bathroom. A MUST for adult children! The main living area is in the center of the home with a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living area, but the the best part is just outside the patio doors. The outdoor patio and yard space with a large pool and spa is designed to enjoy all that San Diego offers with a gorgeous view of the ocean. This is where we spent most of our time! The property is in a quiet neighborhood and is walkable to local restaurants and a little over a mile to the beach. We loved our walks to see the sunsets in the evenings. We will definitely stay at this property in the future for family get togethers. Thank you for a lovely family weekend!

Magnificent!
We had our entire family in for a week at Marvelous Views in La Jolla. It was a wonderful place to stay for 8 adults and 4 kids (all kids under 10). The house itself is a beautiful old (1940's era) house that has had significant additions and updates over the years. It is comfortable, well appointed, roomy and convenient to the entire San Diego area. I would definitely recommend this house as a great place to stay in the SD area. The next time we come to SD with the family, we will stay here. Great!!

Unbelievable ocean views and privacy.
We stayed for our son's destination wedding and would definitely come back. The home easily accommodated our large family and we used the entire inside of the home. The home is spacious and the kitchen was a great addition for eating and gathering. It was a classic home, not modern but with all the amenities that one expects today. The outdoor space was amazing with the views of La Jolla and the ocean. It was totally relaxing and we have heard nothing but positive comments from all the family who stayed with us. We appreciated the quick response to questions and inquiries. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in La Jolla and get away.

Great Spot to bring the whole family!
If you are looking for a spot for a large group or a family reunion this is the spot! I hosted my 4 wonderful children, their spouses and kids for a week in paradise. The layout of the house gave everyone room for privacy but kept us all together in the main rooms. With epic sunsets every night and a close drive to the restaurants in La Jolla this was the perfect spot for my whole family.

Thank you! Thank you!
We were fortunate enough to rent this home for the month of August and found it to be an absolutely wonderful experience! From its top-of-the-hill location just minutes to everything, to the home itself, no detail was overlooked. We love cooking and found the kitchen to be fully stocked with an abundance of pans, cutlery, baking and serving dishes along with top of the line appliances to work with. Another pleasantly surprising motivation to cook was the Sunday Farmers Market that you can literally see from the home's balcony! Another rarity with view homes was the fact that it was completely private! No drapes ever needed and a pool area that no other homes could see! And what a pool area! Not only huge, but the sun is shining on it most all day! To sit in the spa at sunset looking out at that awesome view, it just doesn't get much better! A great open floorplan with excellent separation between bedrooms was another plus in addition to the very comfortable furnishings. A fabulous dining room too! Two walls of huge windows afforded views from every seat! All the electronics one could ask for and wireless computer access as well! Two excellent BBQ's, two stainless heaters and extra propane bottles! Talk about attention to detail! All in all.....a fabulous time in a great home that we will surely return to! Thanks again for making it so memorable! Warmest Regards, Steve

Highly Recommend
I spent a week here with my family. First I should say that the pictures do not do justice to this property. We were stunned with the views and the open design/layout of the house. Even the decor has been nicely updated compared to the pics. The views of the ocean and all of La Jolla from the pool and the balconies really sell this place. Secondly, the real estate agent we were in contact with and the owner were very accomodating, friendly, and easily available. The rooms are convienently divided into different quarters of the house. At the far end of the house, there is an upstairs suite with a separate lounging/tv area, bedroom and full bath. I was also pleased to find a pack n play for the baby to sleep in and an umbrella stroller.There are several bodyboards, plenty of beach towels, and a large laundry room to dump all of your swimsuits/towels. And finally, the location is perfect...private and residential, on its own hill, yet very close to the village and beaches.

Fantastic place!!
Our party (my wife and I, our three kids, and my parents) had a great stay at a great home. The panoramic views were amazing. My daughter could not get over the fact that she had a full-sized pool at her discretion - something that is almost overly opulent for simple folk such as us. Lisa took great care of us and made sure that our stay was comfortable. Hopefully we will be back one day!

Loved it!
This place was among our favorites of the last few years. Pros: View. Look out the back windows at the beautiful pool, beyond that you see the wonderful downtown of La Jolla, and beyond that you see the ocean. Pretty spectacular. Sunsets - WOW! The home is well-maintained and the owner was a great guy eager to show us around. Close to tons of great restaurants and the beach. Cons: None. We loved it. Had a great time and would highly recommend it. It was particularly fun trying to figure out who the people in the pictures on the wall were (hint - they are famous and they are the family of the owner).
