Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you from the Sabin family - Montana. We loved our short stay in Encinitas - we will be back!!
We have lived in this neighborhood for 25 years, of all the places I have lived this is the best! My wife and I came here for college and never left. We now have 3 generations living within a 10 mile radius, that is how great this beach town is. Friendly, healthy, safe and so much to do. We would love to share Encinitas with you!
This cottage is one block away from the beach and every single house a block away is a multimillion dollar property. Our street is not a through street so there is almost no traffic, except for the surfers of course! The cottage is stocked with beach toys, ping pong table available on request, and you won't even need your car, everything is walking distance. If you want to strike out farther you can take the train anywhere North or South, the station is just about a mile away. Take a look at a map and see how ideally central coastal Encinitas is to everything.
Not only can you have the best vacation ever! But we would love to partner with you to help the families of critically ill children staying at our local hospitals. Many of the kids are going through chemo and serious surgeries. Their families stay sometimes months while the kids heal.
A dear friend of ours, Andy Albrecht, started a charity to supply breakfast 7 days a week for these families. He supplies fresh organic fruit, eggs, fresh squeezed orange juice, avocados and the best waffles, pancakes and ham. This requires an enormous amount of work, but Andy is passionate about bringing comfort to these families.
To quote an article about Andy from this months ' From the Heart' Ronald McDonald charity magazine:
' Ten years ago, Andy and his wife experienced the loss of their ten-month-old daughter, Hattie. Out of this dark time, he and his family created H3O,' Help Hattie Help Others.' Andy's guiding motivation is the New Testament message of comforting those experiencing times of trouble. Andy will pray with those who wish, or simply listen with the understanding of one who has experienced the worry and and anxiety that comes with a child's serious medical condition.'
Andy is no longer able to serve at Ronald Mcdonald house due to pressure from a few vocal opponents of Christianity who were offended observing Andy praying with families at the hospital.
His charity H3O is still serving in the same capacity but now partners with several smaller homes for families of hospitalized children. In addition Andy delivers food to mexico twice a month.
If this is something you would like to support we will partner with you and match your donation by lowering your rent 50% of your donation. For example, a $100 donation lowers your rent $50 and you get the full $100 tax write off which makes this almost free!!
You just write a check directly to H3O foundation ( 501c) and i personally hand it to Andy when i go to serve with him.
One of those rare win/win situations!
