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!

Galyn Thompson purchased this house in 2012

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!

LOVED this spot

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this amazing spot for one week with our 2 girls, age 6 and 9. We couldn't have asked for a better location. We originally were going to bring our girls to Disneyland for the first time, but we really didn't want to stay at the resort, so we used this location to take 2 day trips. We also went into San Diego to visit the Zoo and spent some time at the beach when we wanted to leave the car parked. The house is wonderful and the host is the same. He was super friendly, availabe to answer any question we had, and accomodating in every way. The location is perfect for beach days and everything you would want for the beach is all in the garage for your use. I just love the convenience of a home, especially with children. Why anyone would stay at a hotel when there are places like this is beyond me. We will definately be back again. We already miss the laid-back little town of Encinitas!

Outstanding Week!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property was wonderful. The amenities and property were very well maintained and extremely homey. We loved the patio and fenced in yard. It afforded us a great deal of privacy, while still feeling close to everything. We were able to walk to get coffee each morning and then take a stroll around the neighborhood and check out the sites and the ocean. We had our dogs with us and we loved that the yard was completely fenced and safe for them to explore. The owner was great and very helpful in providing things to do and when we needed assistance with the TV. I would definitely recommend this place for a short / long stay.

Perfect Location, Great Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 3 week stay at this relaxing/comfortable beach cottage! The home is everything the description says it is and more. It's very comfortable, the front yard patio was perfecting for reading or enjoying a glass of wine when not at the beach and the location could not be better. Also, our four legged family member loved the natural back yard area to sniff and explore (fully fenced of course)!
Galyn, the owner, was very responsive before, during and after our stay (our deposit was returned the same day we left)! Thanks for a great rental.
