PRIVATE & QUIET ESTATE CASITA

Encinitas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Quiet, Private and Secluded

Fall is a wonderful time of year here in Encinitas, situated on the North Coast of San Diego County. Warm days and spring like temperatures lend to long walks on the beach, bird watching and hiking on our many miles of walking trails lining our coastal lagoons.

2 plus acre estate in the exclusive Crest area of Encinitas. Expansive canyon views with fabulous views of the mountains and Rancho Santa Fe. We are located near Swami’s beach in highly desirable and walkable Crest Drive Encinitas.

Awake to beautiful sunrises, to the call of quail and dine watching hot air balloons in the evening. The Sedona like grounds are beautifully maintained with a koi pond and several secluded areas for peaceful relaxation.

The newly and tastefully decorated casita has one very private bedroom, one bath and a pull out queen sized sleeper in the family room complete with entertainment center, cable TV and fully equipped kitchen. There is ample off street parking. A large usable veranda complete with outdoor plantation like ceiling fans overlooks a canyon meadow abundant with quail, hummingbirds, and other wildlife.

DelMar Racetrack and LaCosta Spa are just a 5 minute drive away. Close to multiple hiking trails and some of the best bicycling in California. It is a half hour drive to the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park and SeaWorld.

Probably the best weather in the continental US. fall average daytime high 72 degrees, low 60 degrees with cool sea breeze. When it is foggy at the beach it is typically clear here in the canyon.

Why Mac Clarke chose Encinitas

The casita was completed in 2003 with highest quality of materials and has been available for family and friends over the years. Furnishings have been updated to accomodate out of town guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Mac and Tricia sought out property on Crest. It is the last remaining property that has acreage close to the coast allowing privacy, rural feel, yet close proximity to beach and amenities. Situated on over an acre, the property is perched over a six acre parcel. Owls, Bobcats,coyotes, rabbits, hawks soar. The main house has been remodeled over the years and landscaping is drought tolerant. Prior animals included miniature donkeys, and as many as seven peacocks.

Wonderful time in Encinitas!

  • 4 of 5
We just returned from a fantastic vacation at Mac and Tricia's lovely casita. It was extremely clean, and organized. Much thought was put into all the amenities. They were very accommodating to us and Daisy, our golden retriever. There is much to do close by. We found a great hiking trail to walk each day. Restaurants and great beaches are right down the street. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing vacation!

GREAT WEEK

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a wonderful week.

It was so good we will be back in May.

The Casita is on the side of a canyon with a unobstructed view into the forested canyon.

The yards are a beautiful garden.

EVERY late afternoon we had hot air balloons rising from the bottom of the canyon. Next time we will go to launch site and watch that part.

Casita

  • 5 of 5
The Casita is unusually well designed and built. It is located in a quiet residential area near the top of a ridge. The windows and porch on the east side have an outstanding view of natural vegetation in the foreground, suburban homes in the midground, the mountains in the background. The windows on the other sides have views of lovely landscaping on the property. The owners were most gracious and helpful. As a bonus, they have a large dog with an extremely nice disposition (who even wanted to go running with me in the mornings).

A GREAT WEEK

  • 5 of 5
We came in for a week in February. It was so good we will be back in May.

We stay in VRBOs about 5-6 times a year, usually for a week.

We have never had a better visit than this one.

EVERYTHING in the Casita is done VERY well.

The best part was the gardens and the view. Everything was beautiful.

About 4:30 EVERY night hot air balloons would rise about ½ mile away. Weekend nights were 9 - 10 balloons.

Next time we will go to their launch site.

This casita is wonderful. Very clean, well-maintained, up-to-date, nicely furnished & well-stocked, with good bed & bath linens, & even a pair of binoculars. The setting is relaxing & pretty. The owners are accommodating & nice people. We definitely want to return.

It doesn't get any better. Tricia and Mac are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are top notch. Comfortable and tastefully furnished. The pictures accurately depict both the interior and exterior - yes, it's that beautiful. Can't wait to visit again.
