The living and dining areas are open and accommodate a family gathering comfortably. Each bedroom has a queen sized bed with closet and plenty of storage. There is also a third bdrm. with a comfy queen sleeper

sofa.

The dining area seats 8 comfortably and a trifold door opens onto the deck overlooking a large tropical yard which is incorporated into the living area. There is a BBQ and outdoor shower on the side patio, and parking is on the street. The property is shared with the constant gardener and hubby who live in the cottage at the back of the large yard, they are very friendly and helpful if needed.

Best VRBO in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a true Southern California vacation experience with comfort and laid back luxury, then this VRBO is for you. This classic Craftsman-style Bungalow has been lovingly restored and is well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The beach is within easy walking distance and Encinitas is adorable! Great VRBO for families, couples or a girls getaway! My mom and I stayed for 9 days, and loved every minute of our vacation. Wendy and Paul, the owners, are warm and gracious hosts and so helpful....we wanted to stay forever! Everything was simply perfect....you will not regret booking your vacation stay here!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two teenage daughters, and I had a wonderful stay here. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. The proximity to the beach is outstanding. We had a ton of fun and some great relaxation during our five day stay. The grounds are also gorgeous.

Excellent and right at home

  • 5 of 5
The owners have done a fabulous job renovating this classic California bungalow in the heart of Encinitas. Just a short stroll down the street and around the corner you will find access to Stone Steps beach. This beach was perfect for our young family and also would be lovely for a romantic evening walk. The owners Paul and Wendy were some of the kindest people we have met and were easy to contact if we had any questions or needed local area suggestions. Encinitas is a quintessential California surf town with great restaurants and people. Have fun!

We appreciate your review of Mermaid Serenity and yes, Encinitas is an excellent beach and surf destination, especially after Labor Day when the crowds have left. The ocean is still warm and we have warm sunny days, too.
Thanks, Wendy and Paul Peterson

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience renting a beach home and we couldn't have asked for a better place! We were not expecting such a beautiful yard and hospitality! A block away from Stone Steps beach (very private and gorgeous) and 3 blocks from Moonlight Beach. We throughly enjoyed both. The house came with everything you need and some! We bbq'd almost every night and enjoyed every day! Our children were so disappointed to leave..... We will come back to this house again!

Relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this charming home. It has everything you might need in a home away from home. Kitchen was perfect and well stocked! Beach is close, we walked to the beach everyday, sunsets are amazing. Beds and bedding, cute and comfy :) We stayed with our two young adult daughters and they loved it as well! Great location for seeing the sights, but we found that we hardly felt like leaving this relaxing home. Garden is beautiful too. We definitely plan on staying here again!

It's all about the beautiful ocean here but for variety you can take an early morn walk to the Pannikin for a cup of coffee and danish,then take the train north to Disneyland or south to the Del Mar race track and downtown San Diego. If you don't want to cook, a short walk to Vigiluccis fine Italian is nice or go downtown Encinitas for a wide variety of restaurants, night life, shopping and you can take in a movie at the classic La Paloma theater. Encinitas has an awesome botanical garden and the zoo, wild animal park, Sea World, Balboa Park and museums are all great day trips.
