Encinitas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spanish Casita Guest House on an acre of a private estate

Our beautiful quiet and private casita is a custom built dream retreat at an exceptional value. We are close to the beaches, shopping, food stores and restaurants.

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.

Our two acre estate in the exclusive Crest area of Encinitas. Expansive canyon views with fabulous views of the mountains and Rancho Santa Fe. Our newly completed private patio with deck chairs and outdoor patio furniture enhances your experience.

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 custom built casita has one very private bedroom, one bath and a queen sized sleeper in the family room complete with 48' smart flat screen entertainment center, cable TV and 50 MB internet that enables you to watch your favorite shows on Netflix and listen to 1000's of artists on Pandora at no additional charge. There is a 30' smart flat screen in the bedroom with access to Pandora, Netflix and your favorite channels.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, gas stove, microwave and toaster oven, dish washer, clothes washer and dryer.

The easterly facing porch is large usable veranda complete with outdoor plantation like ceiling fans that 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.

Encinitas enjoys some of the best weather in the continental US. fall average daytime high 68 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 and Tricia 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. Crest has some of the last remaining property that have 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.

Cozy Hide-away

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully done and updated casita was just what we ordered. Well hidden and away from the beach traffic and hub-bub, yet close to everything. And you can have your pet(s). We did not bring them on this occasion. We especially liked the small adobe patio for reading and meditation. It was an enjoyable stay. The only drawback (for us) was the price per night with all the fees, and taxes. Mac and Tricia were delightful hosts.

How Does One Describe Heaven?

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned yesterday from an incredible get-away in this casita. The location is excellent - so close to everything you could possibly want...the ocean, restaurants, hiking, shopping, local attractions - and yet it is a secluded and peaceful retreat. The casita was wonderful, updated, well stocked with a great kitchen and laundry facilities. The view, oh good grief! More than once we had the pleasure of looking out over the valley and seeing hot air balloons lifting gently into the late afternoon skies. Our hosts, Mac and Tricia, were absolutely delightful, accommodating and made us feel like royalty. Thank you for an incredible vacation and we will be back next year!

Cozy little casita

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully done little casita is exactly what the wife, baby and I needed. Tucked away in the hills, just a few minutes from town, beach and hiking it had all the amenities we needed to go have some fun during the day then come back and cook dinner and enjoy some wine. Thanks Mac!

Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a lovely 3 days in this one-bedroom casita situated on the coastal ridge above Encinitas. When we travel we have two requirements for lodging: Quiet for peace of mind and quiet and dark for sleeping. The location of this unit, facing an undeveloped ravine and well off the road, was perfect for us. The casita is well finished and the kitchen adequately stocked (we hosted friends for a home-cooked dinner which came off very nicely). There is easy access to the I-5 freeway and the Pacific Coast Highway but road noise is minimal. The owners are on-site and provided the perfect blend of privacy and availability when needed. We would definitely return to this property when visiting this part of the state.

Great location, needs a couple of things

  • 4 of 5

The location and hosts are fabulous. We found that there were a couple of times that really should be taken care of to make the experience a 5 star: 1) The shower did not drain well and could run over; really needs to be fixed 2) There is a small TV on the wall in the living area which is quite distance from the viewer seating; it's just way too small for the area. They should move that TV to the bedroom (which has none) and put a much larger TV in the living area. Overall, quite a nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Jack, Thank you for your candid review of our property. Your comments are important to us and the enjoyment of our future guests. We are sorry that there was a backup but you must admit we were responsive to clearing the drain of the beach sand that was left in the drain by previous guests. This is a problem we face is the turnaround of guests in the same day. As you know check out is at 11 AM and check in of the new guests is at 4. Tricia and I do the turnover, cleaning the bathrooms, kitchen, vacumming and dusting in preperation for our new guests. We try to make things perfect but apparently we missed the slow drain in the shower. We may consider reconsidering same day checkin/checkout in the future. As for the TV in the last 2 months we upgraded the internet to 50MB as well as added wireless Roku/Netflicks service so that our guests could enjoy top shows, music channel ane movies at no charge . We heard you on the size of the TV as we moved the smart 30" flat screen to the bedroom and just installed a 48" Sony smart TV in the family room . Shortly after you left, we just completed a $3000 landscape renovation for the yard and the back patio of the casita with outdoor lighting for a beautiful privarte setting for our returning and new guests. Again thanks Jack for your comments. Our best to your wife and our hope that her back is healing. Come back ! All Our Best Wishes, Mac and Tricia

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!

Owner's Response: Lori, We appreciate your comments. Thank you. We just moved the 30" flatscreen to the bedroom and installed a 48" flat screen in the family room. Now you can watch tennis from both rooms! We also completed a $3000 renovation to the year yard of the casita for private enjoyment of our guest
