Encinitas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This is a great retreat from your everyday life. Read a book in the sun, play games with your family, or take a walk on the beach at this quiet haven. We have provided Wifi internet access, a flat screen TV with satellite programing as well as a DVD player. Enjoy our gourmet kitchen, or eat out at one of the area's wide variety of restaurants. Encinitas offers beautiful beaches, an old time downtown area full of shops and restaurants, as well as great proximity to San Diego's many attractions.

This 925 square foot duplex is just the right amount of space for a family or small group to enjoy. The first bedroom has a Queen bed, the second one has Two Twin beds, and there is comfortable couch. Organic cotton sheets are provided for all the beds. We have furnished this beach house in a comfortable style, and decorated with artwork by ourselves and our talented friends.

In the kitchen, you will enjoy cooking on our new professional gas range, and drinking out of our handmade ceramic cups and hand blown glass tumblers. The kitchen is stocked with everything from a coffee maker to an ice cream maker. Plan to visit the Sunday Farmers Market a few blocks away to pick up some fresh local produce and fish, or shop at any of the nearby markets.

Please contact us with any questions, we would love to share our retreat with you!

About The Owner

We are a beach-loving family living nearby in Orange County. Bill and Carol met in graduate school, pursuing art degrees. Now Bill teaches ceramics and 3D design at a local college, Carol has followed a path to applied arts, and together they have created Amelia, a budding artist herself.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Encinitas

We love the laid back feeling of Encinitas/Leucadia. The beach is uncrowded, the people are friendly, and it's a short drive to many local attractions.

What makes this condo unique

This property is close enough for us to walk to the beach, to town, and even to the meditation garden. We love coming to the beach to relax together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Retreat



This property, like its owners, is thoughtfully, casually, excellent. I enjoyed my stay here enormously. Beacon's Beach is a wonderful beach.

Fantastic Family Friendly Rental in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Encinitas before this trip, so didn't know the area well. We chose this rental because it was a lot of space for a reasonable rate. Man we were thrilled to find out that this rental was more than a good deal! it:

1) is super close to Beacon's Beach which was our favourite of all the beaches we went to in California

2) had wetsuits, boogie boards, surfboards, sand toys, bikes, scooters ANYTHING we could think of that we might want while on vacation - it had a wetsuit in every size we needed!

3) was really, really clean

4) had a well-stocked kitchen with every implement and appliance we needed for our stay

5) was run by an extremely sweet host - we forgot our laptop charger there and had it back right away with no complaints - she fedexed it to our next stay right away!

The kids loved this place, and so did us adults. We would definitely stay there again, and don't hesitate to recommend it as a perfect vacation get away for families or other large parties - it easy really nice and big and well laid out.

Thanks again!

Wonderful location for families with young kids

  • 4 of 5

My husband, young son, and I stayed here during spring break and had a wonderful time. We loved how the vacation home is in a quiet neighborhood but yet so close to Beacons Beach, Cottonwood Creek Park, great coffee shops, and decent selection of restaurants. Legoland is just 10 minutes away. We also explored the tide pools at Seaside Beach, which is also 10 minutes away. With so many activities near by, this is a very convenient location for families with young kids.

The house was clean and well maintained. The owner responded promptly to all my emails. When we first arrived at the house, I was a little worried about the train noise since I am a light sleeper, but I was never woken up once by the trains during our stay. The beds were comfortable enough, but the queen bed was too soft for my husband, as he is prone to back pain. Overall, I highly recommend this vacation home.

November Surf Trip

  • 4 of 5

The second half of November in Encinitas was excellent this year for everything besides surfing. Still, we had a really fun trip... The house was tidy and cute and had everything we needed for fun on the beach with our young family. The kitchen was well equipped and the space was perfect for interacting with each other and gave everyone a chance to spread out a little. All the other necessities were just a short walk away... good restaurants, farmer's market, excellent coffee, surfboard rentals, local grocer, even a Redbox. We have a very mobile toddler and the contained yard was perfect. If we were to return, we would bring good wine glasses and our babysitter so we could enjoy the neighborhood a little more at night. That's it!

THE BEST WEATHER IN SAN DIEGO

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our mini vacay in San Diego. Our stay at the VRBO in Encinitas was fun. The duplex was very clean and roomy but not quite a walk to the beach! We had 2 little kids and they would not be able to walk to the beach even in a stroller, too many hills and steps. So we drove to local beaches which is fine since we used to live in Solana Beach and know the area.

The duplex was filled with great gear for beaching, bike riding, surfing, relaxing. Our only dismay were the beds. I wish they were better than IKEA quality. While sleeping in the bed, my son in law fell to the floor when the slats under mattress fell to the floor.Fortunately, he had the same frame in his college days so he knew what happened.

We had enough blankets, towels, and loved having a washer and dryer to use. We must have used every towel 3x during our stay so it was a bonus.

For the price we paid, i am very happy to reccomend this property but be aware, the beach is quite a walk and not stroller friendly.

Beacon's Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Family of four with two teenagers and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beach rental. It was more roomy than we expected and very clean. We spent most of our time at Beacon's Beach and enjoyed the provided boogie and surf boards. Very convenient drive to Del Mar, La Jolla, and downtown San Diego. Would rent again.
