Downsizing to a carefree lifestyle? Consider Chateau La Jolla Inn

By Marti Gacioch

Downsizing one’s responsibilities by making wise lifestyle changes is a reality for many seniors. Chateau La Jolla Inn, a premier independent living residential facility for seniors, cushions that transition process while opening the door to a more carefree way of life.

Since 1972, hundreds of seniors chose locally owned Chateau La Jolla Inn to comfortably gain a more relaxed lifestyle while maintaining their independence. Residents release home owner responsibilities (yard and garden maintenance, housekeeping and pool cleaning) to experience relaxed living on a 2.5-acre setting three blocks away from culturally rich La Jolla Village and one block away from the beach. Certified nurses are available 24/7 to assist residents in an emergency and there is a clerk at front desk 24/7.

About 100 residents call Chateau La Jolla Inn home. It provides unfurnished studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom leased apartments. All apartments have a fully equipped kitchenette. The inn also offers 15 furnished apartments for seasonal senior visitors to rent nightly, weekly or monthly.

Chateau La Jolla Inn provides residents with breakfast 7-9 a.m. each day. In addition, the inn has a full-service hotel-style dining room where residents can order a la carte for lunch (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) or dinner (5-7 p.m.) or opt for a meal plan. Leases include all utilities, cable TV, weekly housekeeping service (vacuuming, dusting, bathroom cleaning and linen change).

“Most residents are from our backyard and just about everything they want to do is right at their fingertips,” said Kim Hollingsworth, director of leasing. “And we have complimentary limousine service for shopping and transportation outings on weekends, where we take residents to events around San Diego County, including museum visits, to Julian, and whatever happens to be going on.”

Chateau La Jolla Inn is a 55-plus senior community with a modern design and decor. The average age of residents is 82-85.The secured facility offers garage parking, a therapy pool with daily exercise (where residents can bring in a physical therapist or a masseuse), and fee-free laundromats, which are sprinkled around the property.

— The Chateau La Jolla Inn at 233 Prospect St. is available to tour by calling Kim Hollingsworth at (858) 459-4451 to schedule an appointment. For more information, visit
