About Marsha Hetrick
We have had the pleasure of living on this property since 1980. What started as a little 1920's house in a avocado orchard has evolved over the years (with 11 remodels/changes/additions) into our family home. We have loved, laughed, raised children and grandchildren, surfed, windsurfed, paddle boarded, schooled, raised a horse, chickens, many dogs and cats, gardened, played and cried here. Our daughter was 5 months and our son 4 years when we began this journey. We went on to build the area you are staying in when our daughter and her husband and two little girls were considering moving to Oregon. Maybe we could build them a home here!! Latest remodel! We had seven marvelous years with them living here and getting to love our two granddaughters daily (now 8 and almost 10)! They raised their ownchickens, dogs, gardens and all the fun and excitement that comes with a family of 4 added on. They were recently lucky to get their dream home on one acre in Fallbrook and are happy building their forever home. latest evolution of 1165 Melba - a vacation oasis for others to enjoy. We hope you appreciate the vibe here--its had a loft of years of love. Greg and Marsha

Perfect Spot in Encinitas!
This was a fabulous property in Encinitas. Marsha was very timely in our communications. I would stay at this location again in a heartbeat. Decor has a definite beach vibe. My only suggestion would be to have better WIFI for the occasional traveller that has to conduct a little business during their vacation.
We absolutely loved this VBRO. It is the nicest one we have stayed at. Would definitely stay hear again!!!!
This place is really beautiful and super comfortable with everything you could want
Fabulous with super hosts as well
Outstanding southern California experience
the moment we opened the handcrafted gate and walked up the garden path, we felt welcomed.The apt. was so clean and beautiful, lots of windows, fantastic kitchen, great bathroom, and bedroom and bed were so comfortable. Marsha and Greg offered lots of ideas of local restuarants, shopping and beaches. Absolutly a jewel!
Thanks Bill and Kate. The pleasure was ours! Thanks for the beautiful plant, and yes, we did finish the tequila! Marsha and Greg
This was the most relaxing trip we have ever had to the California coast. This setting was quiet and the accommodations superb! Easy access to beaches and surrounding events. Dining was excellent. We can’t wait to revisit. Marsha and Greg made us feel like we knew them for years.
Thanks for staying with us. It was a pleasure to meet you. Come again anytime and thanks for the lemon bars--we ate them all!!! Marsha and Greg
