I booked this property for my family when we traveled to Encinitas for a friend's wedding. We have 3 small children (including a 6-month-old at the time) and the house was absolutely perfect for us! It is less than a block to the beach and Mahsa provides a variety of beach toys for use. Our kids were able to enjoy the beach (and the playground), have plenty of beach toys to use, and we didn't have to bring any of it! There was a pack-n-play available, which we easily set up in the master bedroom, and the downstairs room with 2 sets of bunk beds was perfect for the older kids. It was only my family this time, but two families could easily use this property for a fun beach vacation.
The house is also within easy walking distance to downtown Encinitas. We were there over a local art festival, and it was so easy for us to walk the few blocks down there and peruse the vendors before returning home for naptime.
Mahsa was great to work with. We had a last-minute scheduling change, but we were able to change our reservations to arrive a day early. There were no hassles and everything was like clockwork! We would gladly return to this property.
