About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

This oceanfront Air Conditioned luxury vacation beach house villa is truly a magnificent place to stay. You are steps from Moonlight Beach, a wonderful family beach and moments from downtown Encinitas. Great fun for families and couples. Feel like you are in your own paradise on the patio while relaxing with a beverage or a meal and taking in the ocean and beach sites. Your gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean are from all bedrooms and the living room, dining room and kitchen. Inside in the home there are several flat screen TV's, one in the living room, and all bedrooms come equipped with tvs. You have wifi for your internet access. On the cooler nights put a fire in the fireplace and get cozy while listening the surf. Bedroom set-up: so private! All bedrooms have a king bed, and there is one bedroom that also includes twin bunk beds. Conveniently located around a corner from the king bed. All bedrooms have a bathroom, and there is a guest bath on the first floor.

The gourmet chefs kitchen is amazing. High end appliances, and besides the formal large oceanfront dining room, there is a sit down dining table in the kitchen too.

Located close to several attractions.

This gorgeous oceanfront villa with a beach access off of the patio is steps away from Moonlight Beach and near downtown Encinitas; a one block walk. Casa Romantica is 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a private stairway for direct beach access. The patio is a great place for relaxing in the sun or under an umbrella and dining. The patio is equipped with a built-in fire pit, built-in barbeque grill, lounges, and patio table and chairs. There are ocean views from all of the bedrooms, the living room, kitchen and dining room. For inside entertainment you have 4 large flat screen TV's throughout the home with equipped with DVDs and high speed wireless internet. A gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances and a dining room that will seat up to 10 people comfortably. The master suite has a private sitting room for relaxing on a chaise, or using the desk, a second fireplace and a jetted whirlpool bath tub. There is also a separate shower room and private balcony. The bedrooms are equipped with King Tempur-Pedic mattresses. The twin bunk beds have high quality mattresses. The villa comes with high-end linens and towels.

Depending on the season you may even spot whales and the dolphins are always active up and down the coastline in front. Another great amenity that this villa offers is a swimming pool and spa located just below the house on the north side. This pool and hot tub are shared with the condos on the adjacent property; keeping you privately situated away from pool noise, and easy access by the steps down to a locking gate between the properties, and with your own key to access. If you want to take the kids to Moonlight Beach, it has all of the facilities with a full time lifeguard, volleyball nets, play lot, fire pits, picnic tables, a snack bar and summer concerts. The park and Moonlight Beach have recently been completely remodeled. This is one of many beaches in the area, but a family favorite! The Heart of Encinitas is moments away where you may enjoy the shops, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. The Del Mar Track is only 10 minutes by car or you can walk a short distance to the train station and take the Coaster Train. There are a several golf courses to choose from in the area, including Torrey Pines, Encinitas Ranch and La Costa Resort and Spa.

For family fun...there is Legoland just a short 10 minute drive north. Only 20-30 minutes to various places to visit and enjoy in down town San Diego where Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, the Gaslamp District and Old Town San Diego are an easy visit from here. Sea World is about 20 minutes south too. Del Mar for the races and fairgrounds are only 10 minutes, and a great shopping area is the Cedros Design District in Solana Beach. Also, Carlsbad Outlet shopping is only 10 minutes north, close to Legoland.

For the shoppers, there is the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. Look behind the outlet center in the spring time and see a rainbow of color which is the Carlsbad Flower Fields which can be access from the south side of the outlet center. Other activities to enjoy on your visit is the World Famous San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, Balboa Park (parks and museums), the Wild Animal Park, Old Town, Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and so much more.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Actual arrival, Dec 26th-

Our stay in this Encinitas home was exquisite. The modern, plush decor was beautiful. Rooms were spacious and very clean. The gourmet kitchen was FULLY stocked and a treat to cook in. As compared to other high end homes we have rented, only this one had luxurious sheets, plush towels, plenty of paper supplies, and laundry supplies. The beach access was definitely key for our family of 5. How nice to be able to walk right down to the quiet, clean beach. Kids loved the hot tub and pool. The back patio and fire pit were wonderful as well. Other residents were quiet and respectful. I cannot think of a single thing that we did not absolutely love. In fact, we are coming back to the same home next year. Thank you!!

Beautiful View & Comfortable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time that we extended our stay! The accommodations were very comfortable, everything we needed was there, the view was gorgeous, and the location is prime for great food and restaurants. Selfishly, I almost don't want to write a great review because we would love to go back! Being from Southern California, I've stayed in many locations in the area and this one is the best!

25th celebration couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th. Invited family and friends from across the U.S. The house was perfect. Beautiful view and accommodations. Every need taken care of. From the date we signed the contract to the day we closed the door at departure, my wife and I considered it a dream, house that we couldn't have imagined would have been so perfect. We will be back! Maybe more alone time though....

Great Birthday Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location with stunning view of the water near Moonlight Beach. Secluded and quiet. Master Bedroom is superb. Your own personal stairs lead right to the beach. Super comfortable patio furniture to relax in. Chris and Eileen were great to work with answering all of our questions promptly. Only one drawback: there are several sets of stairs leading to the from door that are unlighted. Chris and Eileen tried but were unable to fix that during our stay. All else was great! Would like to come back!

New Year's Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Great place to ring in the new year with family of 6 adults from the East Coast. The weather was perfect ALL week. The view from the house is amazing and you will not want to miss a sunset on the lovely patio. Saw dolphins daily and even a few whales. Especially enjoyed the fire pit and indoor fireplace. House well-equipped and comfy, great kitchen. Very helpful rental staff. The master bedroom is lovely except, for me, the king bed mattress was too soft. And although not a problem for us, there are a lot of steep stairs to tackle from the street to house. Easy access to great town restaurants (breakfast at Honeys yummy), Moonlight Beach, and unique Self-Realization Meditation Garden. Ideally situated property in Encinitas!

Beautiful Home / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Thanksgiving and could not have had a better time at this wonderful home in an ideal location. The house is clean, well furnished, and private (even though neighbors have access to fire pit and beach access as well.) The house sits on a picturesque bluff overlooking the Pacific, and we often utilized the 100 step staircase down to the beach. Walking distance to desirable Moonlight Beach as well as downtown Encinitas' restaurants and shops. Beds were comfortable, and the soothing ocean waves made for very restful sleep. It was nice to have both the linens and towels included in the rental. The rental staff was responsive and very helpful. In short, our stay was great and the home was perfect for our needs.
