Overview

Encinitas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A Tranquil, Charming Cottage Retreat offering low allergen environment

We recently finished building a state-of-the-art home with a private, separate cottage on our property. Our all concrete, eco-friendly construction offers polished concrete floors with radiant heat floors (think warm feet), and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and cooking and dining supplies and utensils. Gas cooktop and double ovens. Healthy water purification system means you can drink right out of the tap with peace of mind and includes toxin-free showering and bathing. We use only organic, biodegradable cleaning products. Our lovely little cottage is bright, quiet, offers coastal breezes, and a space where you can retreat, read, and write. Private outdoor area for reading and soaking up sun.

We are located a short walk (three blocks) from Swami's State Beach. Downtown Encinitas offers shops, art galleries, over 30 restaurants, boutiques, and gourmet coffee cafes within walking distance. Whole Foods has a store in downtown Encinitas on HWY 101. The Coaster stops in downtown Encinitas. For hikers we have San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve and the Torrey Pines State Reserve nearby. For shoppers the Cedros Avenue Design District is to the south in Solana Beach and to the north, is the Carlsbad Premium Outlet stores. There are many attractions in San Diego County. Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Wild Animal Park, Downtown San Diego Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and Coronado Island. Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm is located about one hour north on I-5. We are three blocks from Scripps Memorial Hospital and right off Santa Fe Drive (border between Encinitas and Cardiff by the Sea).

Cottage is limited to two persons. We have bikes, beach chairs, beach towels and beach mats for our guests to use. We would like to offer you a warm welcome to Encinitas and a healthy, happy stay with us!

About Steve Reeder

Our family moved to Encinitas, California from Nebraska in 2008. The weather here is absolutely fantastic! There is something to do for everyone here.

Steve Reeder purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Steve Reeder chose Encinitas

This property is perfect for an individual or couple that desire a quiet space to retreat after a day exploring the many beaches, parks, restaurants, art museums, horse racing, and theme park attractions. Farmers market down the street in Encinitas every Wednesday.

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach for surfing or simply, long beach walks. From our vantage you get sweeping ocean views, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets. Encinitas is your sweet Southern California coastal town that is very laid back and full of vibrant charm. We have water purification system for both drinking and shower. Enjoy our infra-red BBQ grill for outside grilling. Private entrance to the cottage.

Perfect Place to Land

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere quiet but centrally located to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Steve and Brenda were very welcoming and full of knowledge about the area. The place was extremely clean and well-stocked with towels and dishes. The bedroom is separate from the living area so if one person wanted to get up early or stay up late, you didn't bother each other. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for making meals. If we return, we may not rent a car, but take the Coaster from the San Diego airport. It's probably an 8-block walk (or so) from the Coaster station to the house with one big hill. It's a few blocks from the house to the staircase to the beach and the same to the edge of town with tons of restaurants and shopping. It's close to a wonderful Botanic Gardens and lots of other relatively gentle outdoor exercise. We did head to Solana Beach and the Belly Up for music one night, which was well worth it. Also went hiking in Torrey Pines. So much to do that we didn't even come close to doing it all. Great vacation!

Loved this Encinitas cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This casita is fabulous—we loved staying here! When we arrived we were very pleased to find the place so clean and well furnished. Many thoughtful touches and features were provided such as purified water, organic bed linens and no harsh chemicals used! Brenda and Steve could not have done more to accommodate us and make us feel at ease.

The location allowed us to walk everywhere in Encinitas at leisure, not the least of which is the Swamis beach… all of three blocks away. By car, we could easily be on Highway 5 in minutes (but you’d never guess how close you are from inside the casita- it’s that quiet) or take the luxurious scenic route on the Pacific Coast Highway in either direction. We could not have found a more perfect place or better value in the area.

We give this Encinitas cottage and especially its hosts our highest recommendation! And we would consider staying here again.

The casita was all that we could wish for. Genial hosts, walking distance to the beach and downtown, best location in Encinitas. Do not hesitate to stay here, I hope we will be able to return next winter.

Amazing, peaceful, retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is literally perfect! It is immaculate while also comfortable. It has everything you would ever need. Dishes, laundry, towels, nice stainless fridge, radiant heated floors, great windows with lots of fresh air. It is done very tastefully. Steve and Brenda create a place that is welcoming, charming, and relaxing. It is centrally located to downtown Encinitas (walking distance), beaches, Whole Foods... Everything really. I couldn't say enough wonderful things about it. I Highly recommend staying here.

Encinitas Casita

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Brenda's casita was very welcoming. It was very clean & new and having a washer & dryer right there was wonderful. The location was in walking distance to the beach & restaurants & parking was available in front of the house which was very convenient. We enjoyed our stay very much, Steve & Brenda were very gracious.
