We spent a wonderful week at this home in Encinitas this summer. It was perfectly clean, spacious, and full of natural light. We could see the ocean from the patio and loved sleeping with the bedroom doors open so we could fall asleep to the sound of the waves. The home is close to everything in terms of San Diego attractions, although, we preferred to spend most of our time right there in Encinitas and Carlsbad. (We did go to Sea World one day and downtown San Diego another afternoon.) Lots of wonderful restaurants near by, close to shopping at the outlets in Carlsbad, steps from the beach (a beautiful beach and not too crowded), close to our favorite donut shop (Leucadia Donuts) and a wonderful little market for fresh produce is just down the street. The home is tucked back into a very quiet neighborhood off the main street, we couldn't hear any traffic, it was very serene. We traveled with our four young children who loved the kid-sized bathrobes (after a long day at the beach, they couldn't wait to go home and slip into those fluffy robes) and the children's books in the bedrooms. We also thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the heated pool, which was definitely large enough to accommodate all the people in the pool area. The grounds of the neighborhood are well taken care of, lots of beautiful flowers, quiet neighbors. We can't wait to return. Our kids our already begging us for a return trip. Thank you, Carol Lynn, for the wonderful week. We loved every minute!
