A little more about Encinitas, CA -

Flowers and Surf

Located in southern California, slightly to the north of San Diego, Encinitas is a coastal community known of all things for its vast fields of poinsettias and other ornamental flowers. The vast fields under cultivation are lovely in the fall, and each November the annual Poinsettia Festival takes place in the downtown area of the city.

Encinitas holiday homes also fill up during the Wavecrest Woodie Meet, which takes place each September on the third Saturday of the month at Moonlight State Beach. Free to both the public and all participants; the festival consists of a large rally of wooden bodied vehicles and is reputed to be the largest event of this type in the world. Another popular draw each fall is Oktoberfest, which is timed to parallel similar festivals being held across Germany.

Several important museums and other cultural amenities are located in Encinitas, including the Lux Art Institute and the San Dieguito Heritage Museum. Those who come to the city out of their interest in horticulture will want to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden, which is located not in San Diego but in Encinitas; the name derives from the fact that the city is located in San Diego County.

One of the most popular water sports in Encinitas is surfing, whose beaches have been rated among the top surfing locations on earth. So well known is Encinitas for its surf that the Beach Boys listed the city in their roll call of great beaches in their classic song, 'Surfin' USA.'

Perfect for large families and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything advertised and more! We had a great time, and the house worked perfectly with three kids, my mother, and two dogs. Our stay could not have been better!

The beach was just a short walk away, there were cute shops and good restaurants right nearby, and the house was clean and lovely.

The fenced in yard was perfect for privacy and making sure our dogs could run around safely.

We had a wonderful stay, and will definitely be coming back here the next time we're on the west coast!

(The only thing I would recommend would be a new couch! ;))

Great Space and Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great space and location. The spaces from front to back are comfortable so the house feels much larger than it is. Top that off with the location. It's intimidating to see the ocean….looks very far away from the street - but it's really only a couple of blocks to walk or a very short drive to find parking at moonlight beach. You are only about 1 block to the downtown area off 101. It's not the ritz, but perfect for a beach getaway. Really well stocked; towels, boogie boards, chairs galore. The kitchen is also well stocked - dishes and glasses to entertain an army. The bedrooms are comfortable - and if you need TV - it works great too.

A family of 4 could easily spread out here and be ultra comfortable.

Tips: Blue Ribbon Pizza is awesome (see my review on SCVFoodie; and the Solace Moonlight Lounge on the Corner just outside the door basically is really great too. A bit pricy but very creative menu and worth it. Tip: Sunday night is $1.50 Oyster night.

Darshan Bakery is a fantastic little french bakery off of 2nd street. Go. It's very authentic with great breakfast yummies.

Our favorite beach is Moonlight Beach - but you can't take the dog. Cardiff is a nice 2nd; unless you want to make your way to Ocean Beach Dog Beach - which is a riot.

Finally; Lance is very responsive and everything turned out great. Thanks Lance!

We really enjoyed our stay at this rental

  • 4 of 5

This place was very clean and tidy, within walking distance to all Encinitas beaches and restaurants (D Street Bar and Grill was our favorite restaurant). Lance was very nice to deal with easy to contact if needed. The only reason I have not given this rental a five star is because it is close to the train line and can be very noisy but you do get used to them and are able to sleep through the night after a few days

Great pet friendly rental

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our recent stay at the cottage. Really nice rental that worked out great for us traveling with our dogs. Nice and secure fenced yard with room for them to explore. House seems to be updated as it has nice interior options that are current with the times. Only reason that I took one star off was that this is the first rental that we stayed in that didn't have extra paper towels or toilet paper. We ran out the first day, as there was less than a half a roll and had to purchase more. I feel this was a simple oversight and not the normal condition. Also, be aware that this rental does not have A/C so bring fans if forecast is warm because there is only one at property. We timed it poorly and hit a heat wave which made it uncomfortably warm. Overall, I would recommend this property and will likely return in the future!

Cozy Cottage with Lots of Charm!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Encinitas for my son's soccer tournament, and found Lance's home to be the perfect getaway! This cozy cottage was exactly as described, and had all of the charm that you'd find in a seaside escape. It was equipped with all of the comforts of home, had easily accessible Wifi, and plenty of televisions (my boys enjoyed having one in the "bunk" room). The hot tub was great and I loved the lush landscaping. Also, it's within walking distance to Moonlight beach and downtown Encinitas. Lance was a pleasure to deal with, and quick to respond to my questions. We would definitely rent this home again!

Amazing stay in Encinitas!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in this home for the last month! The home was very clean, cozy and well equipped for me and my family. The jacuzzi, outside living area, BBQ and outdoor shower was great too! You can't beat this location. It's walking distance to everything! Down town Encinitas, shops, dining, awesome beaches, everything. The owner of the property was extremely nice, professional and helpful and made our stay a great one and very memorable. The neighborhood was very charming and neighbors were very nice. I would recommend this home to anyone and I can't say enough good things about it. We are already planning our trip next year and hope this home is available! Thanks again to the owner for a great time!
