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.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
I booked this property for my family when we traveled to Encinitas for a friend's wedding. We have 3 small children (including a 6-month-old at the time) and the house was absolutely perfect for us! It is less than a block to the beach and Mahsa provides a variety of beach toys for use. Our kids were able to enjoy the beach (and the playground), have plenty of beach toys to use, and we didn't have to bring any of it! There was a pack-n-play available, which we easily set up in the master bedroom, and the downstairs room with 2 sets of bunk beds was perfect for the older kids. It was only my family this time, but two families could easily use this property for a fun beach vacation.

The house is also within easy walking distance to downtown Encinitas. We were there over a local art festival, and it was so easy for us to walk the few blocks down there and peruse the vendors before returning home for naptime.

Mahsa was great to work with. We had a last-minute scheduling change, but we were able to change our reservations to arrive a day early. There were no hassles and everything was like clockwork! We would gladly return to this property.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we rented this great little house. It is clean, comfortable and well located. The beach is beautiful and only a short walk away. Nothing like hearing the waves hit the beach at night! There are many nice casual restaurants nearby. The coaster train is also close. Very easy to spend a day in the city without dealing with the traffic. We also took the San Diego winery train tour. Lots of fun, no driving! But the best part of the vacation was sitting on the beach or the deck with the family watching the sunset! Hope to go back again

Perfect location, great family house

You can't beat this location - right across the street from the beach. The house was perfect for a young family - cute, clean and cozy. Plenty of beach toys and supplies. The owner and house manager were very responsive. Thank you!

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time this summer. The cottage was bright, inviting, and cozy without feeling crowded, and though we walked and biked all over Encinitas and took several day trips, we spent most of our time enjoying the view of Moonlight Beach from the deck of the house and having friends and family meet us there for snacks before setting out to the beach, only a short walk away. The large driveway, three bathrooms, and portable fans were especially helpful and appreciated, and the large children's room downstairs gave the kids plenty of space to roam while providing a quiet space for them to rest at the end of each busy day. The owner and property manager were easily accessible, helpful, and warm, and we loved our stay so much that we have already reserved a spot for summer 2015!

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.
