About Lindsay Stenson-Gough

As Native Brits, my husband and I fell in love with Southern California and chose to emigrate here, buying our beautiful beach house in 2007. We have traveled extensively, lived in different locations around the world and both agree that Encinitas is one of the most stunning spots to vacation. Who knows, you may enjoy your stay so much that you decide to pack up and move here to live, just as we and countless other residents have done.

Lindsay Stenson-Gough purchased this house in 2007

Why Lindsay Stenson-Gough chose Encinitas

Moonlight Beach is the focal point of all summer activities in the city of Encinitas and undoubtedly one of the finest locations in San Diego County. It has permanent lifeguard HQ, volleyball courts, tennis court, kids play park, concession stand, fire pits, showers and public facilities. Walk 2 minutes to the heart of Downtown Encinitas and you'll find a large selection of cafes, restaurants, shops, salons, spas and much more. There is so much to see and do locally, you're definitely spoiled for choice.

What makes this house unique

In addition to all of the facilities that Moonlight Beach has to offer there are also numerous other local attractions in close proximity: Self Realization Center and Meditation Gardens- 8min walk. YMCA pool & gym: 10min walk. Legoland- 10min drive. Wold Class Golf Resorts & courses: 10min drive. Shopping & lunch in Del Mar: 15 min drive, Lagoon Trails: 10 min drive. Sea-World, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park & Museums: 20min drive.

Loved it! Beautiful, comfortable home very close to amazing beach.

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in this home in Encinitas. My husband and I, our two young kids, and my parents stayed here for 6 days. It was wonderful. We walked to the beach every day, walked into town, and also did a lot of sightseeing.

The house is by Moonlight Beach which is a beautiful beach with great facilities, a park, and lots of lifeguards - which are important to me given our young children. Plus, the San Diego area in general is a great place for families to visit since there are so many fun things for the kids to do (zoo, LEGOLAND, Balboa Park, beaches, museums, Padres baseball game, etc.).

The home is beautiful and very-well maintained. Everything was in perfect condition. The home was also decorated very nicely. It provided the right amount of things that we needed yet also seemed minimalist with no clutter.

The home has a very nice ocean view. We often sat on the upper patio to enjoy the view and fresh ocean air.

The home is in a nice location, only 1-2 blocks from the beach and a few blocks from town. It is also in close proximity to major attractions in San Diego. It seems like most major attractions are within a 30 minute drive.

Last, the owner, Lindsay, is a wonderful host and very professional. She stocked the kitchen with some cereal, fresh fruit, bread, butter, jam, milk and a bottle of wine before we arrived. Judging by the condition of the house and all its amenities, it is clear that she loves her house and takes very good care of it and thinks about what people will need/want when staying there.

I highly recommend staying here and hope to stay here again.

Immaculate Property

  • 5 of 5
This house is exceptionally well maintained and clean. Everything you could need was available: Boogie Boards, beach towels, laundry detergent, coffee....if you can think about it, it was here. It even comes with your favorite jelly flavor. The location was excellent. We were able to run back and forth to the beach for snacks and such. We walked to dinner every night at a different restaurant, and I felt it was safe enough to let the teenagers wander away. Everyone had a ball! You can't go wrong with this house. Lindsey was very easy to work with, and refunded the deposit the day we left. It was the best VRBO we have ever stayed in.

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Encinitas and thought this was a great rental. It is furnished beautifully, extremely clean, and is well stocked. It was really helpful that the rental has a pack n' play and baby gate for the top of the stairs. The owner kindly provides some basic groceries for you upon arrival, which is very thoughtful. She was also helpful in terms of providing restaurant recommendations. The location is outstanding - beautiful views of the beach and ocean from the living room and deck, and it is very convenient to walk to the beach and playground. The only issue we had was street noise from cars/motorcycles at night given we have a very noise sensitive child (the train is loud, too, but that is part of the charm of Encinitas). We needed to open windows at night to be cool, but it was quite noisy. It isn't much of an issue in the master bedroom, but more so in the additional room. Overall a wonderful rental that we would definitely recommend.

Great Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Lindsay's Moonlight Beach home. Along with me was my wife and young son along with my folks. The house itself was top notch (and I've rented a great number of properties over the years on VRBO/Homeaway so I've seen it all). High end finishes, great open living area where you spend most of your time, nice deck has a view of the ocean. Very clean, and well outfitted kitchen had most everything we needed including a fresh juicer for making margs....

Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms great. Really no complaints at all about the house.

Bonus for us was also that she has a bunch of stuff for kids like a packnplay and high chair which meant we didn't need to bring our own. And the beach closet was awesome for all the chairs/towels/sand toys we needed.

I know the area fairly well and feel that the location is just about ideal. Just a 3 minute (tops), 2 block walk to beach. Beach has a playground for kids and concessions. Busy on a holiday weekend but that can't be helped. Also only about 4 or 5 blocks to main st in Encinitas where we walked a couple times.

And not for nothing, Lindsay was also extremely responsive and easy to work with.

All in all, 5 stars.

Great House, Stunning view indeed.

  • 5 of 5
We just loved it! There was something for each member of the family, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The house is great and the location even better! You can walk to the beach, rent boards at convenience, and walk to many shops...plenty of restaurants and cafe, plus very easy access to the sightseing along the Ocean to San Diego. The kids cannot stop asking to go back there! And the owners are very friendly, they will answer all questions you may have.

Perfect house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this house and the location. It was perfect for our family of five with small children (ages 6, 4, and 10 months). We walked down to the beach every day where our kids enjoyed the nice playground and beach atmosphere. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the shops and restaurants in downtown Encinitas. It's also close to the I5 expressway to get to other popular SoCal destinations. During our stay we visited the zoo, LegoLand, and DisneyLand.

The house itself was very well taken care of and maintained and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. The owner was very gracious and helpful in getting us situated, even providing some groceries for us upon arrival. The house also had everything we needed for our baby including a pack-n-play, stair gate and high chair.

We hope to return to this beautiful home again in the future.
