ENCINITAS TOWNHOUSE 40FT. TO BEACON'S BEACH - OCEAN VIEW, PRIVATE YARD, PETS OK

Encinitas Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths, Will Sleep Six, Ocean Front, Private Yard

A perfect relaxing beach retreat; the oceanfront town home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and is just 40 feet from the Bluff and stairs to Beacon's beach. This is the only home in this area with a large oceanfront grass yard. The home is perfect for families to comfortably spend time inside and outside together. The home has just been completely remodeled inside and out and has an updated look along with the character Encinitas is famous for.

The home includes 2 private parking spots, 2 soft surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs, and beach toys. Just arrive and you are ready for a wonderful day at the beach. The bedrooms are well acquainted with Queen beds and matching bedroom sets. For larger groups, we have two convertible futons, each with sheet and comforter set. The entire home is very nicely furnished and well outfitted for our guests.

The area is the quintessential 1960's beach town, with modern splashes of luxury and tons of eclectic soul. The home is just 50 feet from the stunning cliffs the boast views of the entire coastline, and the stairs that lead down to world class, Beacons Beach. The home is also just blocks away from several great places to eat or have a drink.

It is a short walk to Coast Hwy where you will find unique boutiques, mouth watering Mexican food, local coffee houses, antique stores, a new and used record store, and so much more! Stroll down a little further on the weekends and stop by the Seaside Bazaar, North County's only open-air market. At night, enjoy home cooking in your oceanfront rental, or check out one of the local neighborhood restaurants such as Calypso cafe, a small place serving up great food with local bands playing every night. Or maybe you would enjoy Bar Leucadian, a neighborhood bar that has been there since 1946, and has live music, pool tables, and no cover charge!

Historic Coast Highway also just blocks away, is home to trendy restaurants, chic boutiques and art studios - great for walking around in the sunshine. The Old Coast Highway continues south through Old Encinitas, through the heart of our lost-in-time 'old downtown' - right past Swami's Beach. Legoland is only a 10 min drive (about 6 miles) and we are about a 30 min drive to Sea World and the San Diego International Airport. The San Diego Botanical Gardens are 2.5 miles away and is a very beautiful place to visit.

Beacon's is still a 'surfer's heaven' where you can watch the greatest surfers in the world practice their skills every day.

We are just a 6 min drive to legoland and about a 30 min drive to Sea World and Lindberg Field.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Richard's house in Encinitas was absolutely perfect! We had 6 guests and everyone slept very comfortably and having two updated and spotless bathrooms really helped as well. The best part about the house (other than all of the beach accessories) is of course the proximity to the beach right across the street. We ended up doing sunset picnics and lots of random trips down just to watch the surfers since the location was so convenient. We also rented bikes in Encinitas and enjoyed cruising around quite a bit. There are several cute restaurants including a winery and legit coffee shop within a block from the house. I will definitely recommend staying at this perfect beach getaway and look forward to coming back (hopefully) very soon!

My name is Richard Norwood and I built my first vacation rental in Pacific Beach on Tourmaline St., ten years ago. I recently decided to expand on our success and provide a North County Beach Property for our clients. I have spent over two months going over every detail and I am excited to say that I am very pleased with the product and I am excited to share it with the upcoming guests. After I graduated from UCLA, I was a high school teacher and would eventually like to go back into teaching, however, Real Estate has always paid the bills. I also own an operate an outdoor adventure company (www.huntandgofish.com), sending clients all over the world. I am an avid fisherman and love my two dogs Sadie and Mia.

Please don't hesitate to ask about the many local experiences we can offer our clients.

ex. Bonfire at the beach, Catered Dinner at the Beach, Fishing Trips, kayaking, San Diego Tours and much more!

Richard Norwood purchased this townhome in 1986

This property is amazing. The large Oceanfront grass front yard makes for one of the most unique beach homes available in this area, as well as the ocean view and wonderful sunsets.

Walking distance to great restaurants and only 50ft to Beacon's Beach. Enjoy nightly sunsets and an ocean view from your front yard!

Nice unit, but loud train and excessive extra charges

  • 1 of 5
We stayed at this rental for a month and a half after it first become available. The unit is spacious and the yard is great for a dog or kids to play in. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. The beach requires a walk down the cliff, but the path is not too steep and is manageable.

However, unlike other parts of the San Diego coast, the train loudly honks its horn multiple times as it crosses Leucadia Blvd. Trains run from about 5:30am until Midnight. We (including our child and dog) were regularly awoken early in the morning and never were able to get used to the noise. Also, the unit is a bit downslope from the cliff and does not get good air circulation even with all of the windows open. We actually decided not to sleep there the last two nights of our stay due to the noise and poor air circulation.

When we checked out we only received 30% of our deposit back. We were charged 50% of our deposit for cleaning. This amount was not disclosed up front and we found it excessive. We were charged 20% of our deposit for the cheap comforter that ripped when we washed it in the washing machine.

We would not recommend staying in this unit.

Owner's Response: As owners of vacation rental properties, we are able to meet and interact with a variety of personalities. We have found that the vast majority of visitors are extremely friendly and courteous. However, you do find guests that you are unable to please. The review posted is inaccurate and intimates that a cleaning fee and deposit penalty were levied, which is not the case. They also claim that a simple washing ruined a brand new comforter, which appeared to be shredded by their dog. They also ripped a beach chair and just responded by saying they never noticed.

This group stayed for over a month and had asked to handle the cleaning prior to move out so that would not incur a cleaning fee. When we arrived to check on the status of their move out, we found the home vacated and in the midst of a cleaning Disaster. As these we the first guests that stayed after we did a full remodel and fully furnished the place with brand new Everything, it was very discouraging to see how little care was used while the guests used the home. The furniture, including beds, the chest of drawers, night stands and even the pictures were moved to completely different parts of the home and it looked as if the they had not been picked up or cleaned once during the stay. It was filthy. We had to immediately call a cleaning service who sent out 3 people who cleaned, provided complete linen service, moved furniture, removed an entire yard full of dog feces for over 4 hours to return the home to its original condition. We paid the cleaning service $250 which is exactly what we billed the guest. We also had to replace the brand new queen comforter and brand new Tommy Bahama Back Pack beach chair and billed the guest $100 total for both. We offered to provide receipts to the guests which they never got back to us about. The comments about the lack of an ocean breeze are simply not true as we are the Front house to the beach. The train does run on the tracks that are near Leucadia Blvd. and the entire coastline of Encinitas, Carlsbad, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Oceanside. Every home that is near the beach is within each shot of the train but it does not discourage or take away from the experience. In fact, I have always felt that it gives the area a quaint beach town feel, that I'm sure vacationers will appreciate. All in all I am sad to see this review as we feel that our success is based on our guests' experience but I don't think we could have done more.
