We chose the Plantation Beach House for a long anniversary weekend getaway in Encinitas. Upon arrival we found the home and property not only met the description from the website but actually exceeded, this is hard to believe because of how beautiful the photos are but it is true. The home is well equipped with high quality linens, audio video equipment and small gourmet kitchen. The property, though in a quiet subdivision is extremely private and secluded thanks to exquisite long term planting vision of the owner. The placement of palms and hedges makes one feels like they have stepped onto the grounds of a tropical resort. Night time is the biggest treat as the entire property is illuminated with accent lighting. Relaxing by the outdoor fireplace in evenings was most enjoyable. The street in front of the house is very quiet with few cars passing. The neighborhood in general is very quiet, we really heard nothing day or night even with the doors and windows open. The owner Eric was great to work with and is truly one of those owners who makes you feel like the home and property was "ours" during our stay. We have rented many VRBO homes and the Plantation Beach Cottage is one of if not the best we have stayed. We highly recommend this property and will definitely be back.
