Guestbook comments from the owner
Just two blocks away from the Pacific and always in view of the ocean and sunsets, this is the a perfect beach vacation. The house is not for glitz seekers, but for those who want to relax and center their Encinitas time on family and beach. Once you're settled in, even in car crazy California, you can park the car and walk everywhere from the grocery to the library to restaurants to the train. One caveat--there are stairs so it's not disabled-friendly. The house is very well suited to families and we have enjoyed it for three winters with our extended family. The owners instantly respond to every need and it's been a pleasure to rent from them.

My husband and I both love spending time at the beach. I have great childhood memories when all our summer vacations were spent on the beach, playing, swimming or building sandcastles and I always knew that I wanted to be near the beach for the rest of my life and share the experience with my own kids.

Mahsa purchased this house in 1998

The first time we visited Encinitas, we fell in love with its vintage California surf and beach culture. It's beautiful and down to earth at the same time. We loved the unpretentious friendly locals, the spiritual and sometime funky feel of it and of course the amazing beaches.

POSITIVE VIBE AND HAPPINESS

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family had such a lovely time at your beautiful beach house. I am so grateful that we got to share the happiness of this home, and hopefully add some of our own. I understand why everyone gets such a positive vibe from this home. It's brimming with wonderful memories! The sands, sights and smells are perfect. Each of us loved every second spent at Moonlight & Encinitas. We hope to be back someday soon.

CA PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
Great house for families! Four adults and two young children and it worked perfectly! Loved the views, the childrens play park right at Moonlight Beach, the lawn out front (which my granddaughter referred to as the Secret Garden), the huge porch, where we spent much of our time, the sunroom which was perfect for morning coffee time and listening to the waves. House is set up well with baby gate, games, toys, ukulele (not something you would normally find in a rental), super comfortable beds, three bathrooms, a master suite upstairs and two bedrooms and a bath downstairs made it perfect for us. We caught the tail end of a heat wave (90's) and realized it does not have air conditioning but thankfully they had fans and the ocean breeze came through for us! Loved the beachy decor, comfortable places to sit and read and location. Hope to return next year!

JUST A CAUTION

  • 3 of 5
The location is fantastic. The house was very clean with nice deck and sunroom. I have rented VRBO homes for many years but this rental turned out to be very problematic. Each bathroom has a sign cautioning you about "old plumbing" and not flushing anything but "toilet paper." Seeing these warnings concerned us so we were very careful. Three mornings we were told by city workers to not use the water at all, we had to walk to the beach and use the public rest rooms, not bathe and eat out as we could not wash dishes. The owner compensated us for two nights. I thought that was the end of it but two days ago I received an email from the owner accusing me and my family of flushing baby wipes down the toilets thus causing the plumbing problems! She also felt that two days compensation was very unfair to her since we had caused the problem! I responded by sending her a picture of my family none of whom was a baby, none wore diapers and none used baby wipes! I would caution future renters about the plumbing issues.since the signs were posted in all bathrooms I think this may be an ongoing problem.

Owner's Response: Dear Diane,

The signs that are posted are merely cautionary and we have never had an issue like this in the past 5 years that we have been renting our home(as evident by the 96 positive reviews that came before this). As with any old plumbing, caution is advised when throwing anything down the toilet.

We want to apologize(again) for the issues you experienced during your stay at our home. I am sorry that you feel that I accused you of causing the plumbing issues. I am not a plumber and unfortunately I have to rely on the opinion of professionals in understanding the cause. I feel that we still handled this situation in a fair and professional manner by reimbursing you two nights of your stay plus your full deposit regardless of who caused the problem. We wish you and your family the best in your future vacations.

Best Regards,
Mahsa
