About Mahsa

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

Why Mahsa chose Encinitas

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.

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.

prime location, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

"Had a really wonderful stay(visited our grandparents in La Jolla). This place was the perfect fit for us - my sister & I, and our children(5 total, ages 2-7). Awesome location with the beach + 2 playgrounds so close, and town ... go get coffee and a muffin at Honey's!

Jason, the caretaker was amazing too, responding immediately when we needed him ...

Thanks so much, this place will definitely be recommended to family and friends, and we hope to be back. "

Beautiful view from upper deck

  • 4 of 5

This vacation rental is a little gem, views from the upper deck are beautiful. This house has a vintage beach theme and is within walking distance to Moonlight Beach. Plenty of beach toys, beach chairs and even beach towels for us to use. The manager was very responsive to the 2 repairs that were needed during our stay.

Owner is very easy to deal with

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately I had to cancel my stay at the last minute so can't review the property but Mahsa was very responsive and great to deal with throughout the booking process and was very generous in the way he handled my cancellation. I hope to make it to the property sometime soon.

Great location with short walk to a great beach....

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't lie. 1 block from the beach and kids water toys to keep them entertained for hours. Very close to good shopping and 15 minutes from LEGOLAND. Masha was very responsive and helpful. House had a good layout...a little dated/tired but clean. We would rent it again.
