Redwood Hollow’s History
Redwood Hollow’s site was first developed by civic minded Walter Scott Lieber in 1915, and it was called “Prospect View”. There were wide ocean views from this area since all of the surrounding lots were vacant. At one time, Mr. Lieber had 20 of these cottage courts used for daily-weekly-monthly rentals. In later years, they have all been demolished for large scale condominiums except for Redwood Hollow. The property now consists of two contiguous parcels which were linked together in 1998.
Over the years Redwood Hollow has not only been the home to vacationers, but we’ve had famous surfers, artisans, writers and other professionals reside here.
A Hidden Paradise
At first glance, the Redwood Hollow Cottages are unassuming, tucked-away little houses that look more like charming homes than a hotel … but that is exactly what appeals to many of its longtime visitors. These bungalows originally built in 1915 were named a Historical Landmark in 1997. They provide an unforgettable way of experiencing the beauty of La Jolla. Enjoy all the amenities of a modern-day hotel in the comfort of an enchanting wood cottage right here in the village. The cottages are clustered around central garden courtyards and were built to resemble a rustic mountain retreat; lush vibrant foliage, brick pathways, bubbling fountains, quiet garden patios, and picturesque plants are thought to provide an aura of calmness and tranquility.
Redwood Hollow is conveniently located within the village of La Jolla, and close to all the fun that San Diego offers. We are steps away from lounging on Whispering Sands Beach or surfing at Horseshoe Reef. Explore the tide pools as you walk down the beautiful coastline to watch the seals play at the Children’s Pool, and spend time snorkeling or diving with the Sea Lions at the La Jolla Cove. Kayak, Paddle Board, Bicycle & golf cart rentals can all be found nearby. In the Village spend your time browsing the shops, dining at the restaurants, or exploring the art galleries.
