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.

Just a caution

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

Thank you for such a wonderful house and location to spend a few days while in town for a family wedding. The kids room was perfect for our four. The sunsets from deck were spectacular. We have so many wonderful memories of this place to take with us. We hope to return one day.

Great house for family with young kids

Very nice location for a family with 2 young kids. Literally a stone's throw from the playground just another hop and skip to the beach where we spent most of our time. Legoland is a quick drive on the interstate and also nice to have Whole foods and quaint shops nearby within walking distance. Had a few issues with the house but owners were very quick to respond and take care of it. Thank you.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We do try to resolve issues as fast as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding and hope to see you again soon!
