La Costa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

HIGHLY RATED FROM VRBO GUESTS! This is the perfect home for anyone looking for a RESORT-like atmosphere. Step into your private tropical resort-like yard with pool and spa, palapas, outdoor barbecue, spectacular views, 4 fireplaces, game room, lounge, NEW: indoor Pool Table and Ping Pong Table, and outdoor trampoline! Need to sweat it out? Weight machine, free weights, treadmill and flat panel tv create a perfect, private workout room. Love to cook? Our property features a large, fully equipped chef's gourmet kitchen. Open the adjoining french doors and let the warm coastal air in, or walk out to the back yard's meandering outdoor spaces designed to create nooks and unique places to relax or entertain. The salt water pool features natural rocks to jump from and cascading water from the raised spa. Outdoor barbecue and bar area includes new flat panel screen for watching sports or movies outside (the kids love to sit at the outside bar and watch movies under the stars!). Enjoy meals at the large flagstone barbecue bar or take it under the lighted african-thatch palapa on the built-in dining table that seats 8 comfortably.

This 4200sf home is meticulously decorated and maintained, offering you a gorgeous, warm location for all your vacation needs. The house is a few miles from the beach, Legoland, as well as amazing shops and restaurants. The house and the back yard are kept private by a locking front gate. We designed this home for a fantastic stay-vacation resort-like lifestyle, and have taken great care to offer you a meticulously clean, worry-free, turn-key vacation home so you can just relax and have fun.

Looking for something to do? How about the amazing cuisine available from a deliciously diverse array of local restaurants in downtown Encinitas and Carlsbad. Or head down to some of the best beaches in San Diego - all minutes away from the house. Want to learn how to surf? Let us know and we'll arrange for your own private lessons with San Diego's best instructors. How about wine tasting in Temecula? We are happy to arrange limo wine tasting tours, too. Legoland is so close you can see their summer fireworks from our back yard. Or take a day trip to the San Diego Zoo, the Wild Animal Park, Seaworld, or Balboa Park. Don't forget to try to make it home in time to catch the amazing sunsets as you toast the end of another beautiful San Diego day.

The home features 4 large bedrooms upstairs. The Master suite has a fireplace, large bathroom, his and hers vanities, soaking tub, separate shower, walk in closet, wonderful views from all windows, and a luxurious king bed (BRAND NEW IN DEC. 2011). Bedroom #2 is bright and fresh and has a queen bed set in a curved alcove. This room has loads of natural light from the many windows, a private bathroom with shower, vanity and walk in closet. Bedroom #3 and #4 have a Jack and Jill bathroom with tub and shower, and each has its own private vanity. Room #4 has a queen bed and french doors opening out to a private balcony overlooking the small cul-de-sac.

Downstairs, the well-furnished game room can also be used as an additional bedroom. The large L-shaped chenille-like couch sleeps 2 easily, and we offer a queen-sized double top air mattress if you need it. The downstairs bathroom is next to the game room, and includes a full shower, making it ideal as a 5th bedroom. The game room also features french doors that open out into the pool area, a brand new flat screen tv, Wii, Xbox 360, and board games for your enjoyment. For music lovers, draw everyone around the piano and pick up the acoustic guitars for your own jam session.

Like to stay fit? Get your workout in on your schedule in our nicely equipped work out room in the garage. This space features free weights, universal weight machine, treadmill, exercise ball, resistance bands, and flat panel tv, and our new ping pong table! Outdoor games include volleyball and croquet, plus a nice basketball hoop in the cul-de-sac.

Gated pool safety fence available upon request.

Carlsbad / Encinitas is such a wonderful place due to its proximity to the beach, local shopping and restaurants, and other San Diego attractions like the San Diego Zoo and Legoland. The weather is absolutely amazing!

Peace and relaxation, plus all the amenities to entertain and create wonderful memories without leaving home.

Fabulous!

We rented Julia and Stew's home for a week in August 2013 and it was simply fabulous! We are a family of 6 plus our au pair and everyone had a blast! The house is simply impeccable - from a both a decor and cleanliness standpoint. With a home like that - photos struggle to do it justice. The boys LOVED the skateboard room, the girls LOVED the girls room and as adults we loved having such a beautiful place to relax in! The kids kept so busy with the pool, hot tub, basketball, trampoline, games, toys, legos, books - you name it! And we enjoyed being able to put the kids to bed and enjoy a game of pool, the hot tub and watching movies. Absent needing groceries, we could have literally stayed in the house the entire week without leaving! The location is very convenient for day trips to legoland, the beach, sea world, etc. and it's on a cul de sac so the kids were able to ride their scooters around the front as well. The kids keep asking when we are going back to the San Diego house - it was a perfect vacation spot! Highly higly recommend!!!!

Wonderfully relaxing vacation

We rented this beautiful home in July and had a wonderful time. There were 9 of us, including two teenagers, and everyone loved the location and home. We left the property only two times during the week because there is so much to keep you occupied between the pool, trampoline, ping pong, workout room, outdoor fireplace and tv, pool table, the list goes on and on. We will definitely consider coming back to this home for a future vacation. One side note, we did have an issue with the refrigerator, but Stew and Julia were right on top of it and made sure they did their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

We stayed at Julia and Stew’s picturesque home for 8 nights and struggled to leave!! Our family of 8 so enjoyed this family friendly home that we seriously opted to stay there instead of being out every night. We loved all the different spaces there were inside and out to spend great family time. The pool area was one of the favorite spots to hang out as well as the barbeque bar. Julia and Steve have equipped each and every room with their guests in mind. We also felt we were in the ideal location being only minutes away from the Temecula area, Coronado, and several beaches. This is a must stay property!!

Awesome property!

We were a group of three families who stayed at this property. Total of 6 adults and 7 children (age 3 months to 5 years). I do not believe that we could have picked a better home for our trip. The house is beautiful and the outdoor areas are amazing. We pulled into the driveway and with the exception of a trip to the grocery store, we never left the property...why would you want to? Julia was very accommodating and quick to respond to questions and requests that would make our stay more comfortable. This is our second time renting a home through VRBO...I think it will be hard for any future properties we rent to live up to this one.

Gracious and Beautiful are the words to come to minds to describe our recent stay at Stewart and Julia's amazing Home.

Gracious as in the owner's warm, inviting “how can we help make your stay great" attitude and their willingness to open their home up to our family on a weeks’ notice over the Easter Weekend.

Beautiful as in well...beautiful far beyond the pictures to describe the home. Everything was impeccably decorated and well thought out. It was so easy for our family of five (kids 5, 7, 11) to move in and feel at home immediately.

We chose this particular property because of the pictures on VRBO and because of the kid-friendly amenities. We were not disappointed in any way. In fact, we had some uncharacteristically bad weather over the Easter break and we were still able to entertain the kids indoors with the pool table, ping pong and plethora of board games.

Well done Stewart and Julia….your place is simply amazing and thank you for sharing it with our family.
