Overview

About the property

Duplex, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

After your first visit, you will want to come back year after year..........look at the many reviews.

The 1 bedroom unit is very clean and has granite counter tops, fully tiled shower, landscaped private backyard, large dedicated parking spot right in-front, and Air Conditioning which is unusual for most rentals in the area.

Located in a quiet area just just 2 blocks from famous Moonlight Beach, and 4 blocks old-town Encinitas. Encinitas is considered by many as one of the true gem beach areas in the county, providing many niche eating and shopping options.

Amenities include a queen sized bed, stone floor, and the entertainment system includes a 50 inch flat screen TV with the ability to stream most Netflix movies directly to the TV at no additional charge. Sit in your private backyard which is lushly landscaped and includes a Weber gas barbecue. Expanded Cable offering, DVR recording plus free wifi.

We have had great feedback, just check out the comments left by our guests.

HOUSE RULES: No smoking on property including backyard, must be over 25 yrs old (or approval needed via email), no events, no parties, quiet after 10pm.

Moonlight is one of the most popular beaches in North County San Diego, with facilities that include restrooms, showers, volleyball courts, fire pits, barbecues, beach rentals , children’s playground, and even a great snack bar! If you want a more secluded beach, just walk about 100 yards north or south on the beach.

Walk into downtown Old Encinitas and eat at one of the many great restaurants or shop at the small unique shops.

The unit has complete set of dishes, linens, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and wifi. Also has private washer and dryer.

There is no bath tub, so for small children, it may not be a great place.

We are dog-friendly. The unit is best suited for small to mid-size dogs.

House Rules:

Must me over 25 years old unless I specifically approve

No events or parties.

No spoking in unit or in backyard.

Quite time after 10pm, this is a quiet neighborhood

Dogs can not be left alone (inside or outside) if they bark.

Couch needs to be covered if you have a dog, and not allowed on bed

If this unit is booked for the time you want it, look at my other VRBO properties (#4054307 and #821584) which are both 2 bedrooms and also located just a few blocks to the beach in Oceanside, just 10 miles north of this unit.

About Warren Goldberg

I have lived in the San Diego area for over 34 years and in Encinitas for over 24 years. My wife and I grew up back in NY/NJ. I first visited the San Diego area while at Arizona State and immediately knew I found the place I wanted to live. I worked as an engineer.

Warren Goldberg purchased this bungalow in 1991

Why Warren Goldberg chose San Diego County

Encinitas has a small beach town atmosphere, people are very friendly, and it has the best beach around. The rental unit is very private with its own entrance and typically I don't see our renters for days on end. But if you need something..I am close.

What makes this bungalow unique

Take our beach bikes for a ride on the beach during low tide, it is a great experience. Also stream hundreds of Netflix movies at no charge.

Ocean breeze paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. We have stayed at several vacation rentals and own one ourselves. This was well appointed, fully equipped, quiet and comfortable. It is a bit cozy but just great for two ( or more if children) . The private back yard with bbq was just perfect for morning coffee, dinner or reading a book. Although The owners are in the adjoining unit they never infringed on our privacy and were there when needed. Warren and Meryl were very helpful and great to work with. Location location location!!! Less than two blocks to the beach and three to downtown restaurants, bars and shopping. We will definitely be back. Diamond in the rough. I noticed someone complained about train noise. Being from the area originally I don't not know of any properties on the ocean side of coast hwy in the San Diego and south Orange County area that can not here the train. This property is not real close to the train and the noise was not an issue for us at all.

lovely apartment just steps from a breathtaking beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a incredible time while staying at Warren's apartment. The unitis just steps from an incredibly beautiful beach. The one bedroom apartment is spacious and was stocked with towels and coffee, and has a lovely yard with outdoor seating and a table. Warren was a great host in that he greeted us warmly and offered to share all of his beach gear including surf boards, boogy boards, flippers, sun umbrella etc. He also has two beech bikes that we used daily to bike into town to get lunch and dinner. I would for sure visit Encinitas and stay at Warren's place again!!

This was a terrific beach Bungalo to stay in. It was clean and comfortable and even came with great

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts Warren and Merryl were wonderful. We loved our Bungalo and the location can't be beat. It is walking distance to everything and a short walk to the beach. We parked our car and hardly ever used it unless we were going somewhere in another town for dinner. I would highly recommend this place. It is neat, clean and very private. We will definitely be coming back here again. We had our own private yard and separate entrance which made our stay very comfortable. Thank you.

Charming southern California condo

  • 5 of 5

We met the owners Warren & Meryl very, very nice people. Their condo had everything that was advertised everything you needed was there. A 5 minute walk to the beach and very close to Interstate 5. Downtown Encinitas was a quick 5 minute drive if that. We loved staying there the condo had many updates I would stay at this condo again in a minute. TWO THUMBS UP on this condo.

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a mini vacation to get away from the heat and have some beach time. Location is fantastic, Moonlight Beach is just done the block. And if you haven't ever been to Moonlight Beach, it's beautiful! First time we have stayed in Encinitas, and we loved it. Amenities are great, Warren was available immediately if anything was necessary. The private yard was a bonus, I spent my mornings out there drinking coffee and eating breakfast with the family. If you're looking for a great little getaway, this place is perfect.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The rental was perfect! The only thing I would recommend is a new mattress in the pull out sofa. The air mattress was old and had mildew. My daughter would not sleep on it and she ended up just sleeping on the couch itself. Wish she would have had something more comfortable to sleep on during our stay. Other than that everything else was just perfect! Hoping to come back soon for a surf trip!

Owner's Response: The matress for the couch has been replaced. I wish you let me know at the beginning of your stay about the couch mattress, would have replaced it during your stay! We don't have many guests actually using the pull out air mattress and during my pre-check-in process I don't pull the mattress out. Feel bad, you guys were really GREAT guests! Loved seeing you use all the beach toys, including the surfboard! As with many VRBOs, the owner does not actually stay in the unit, so any immediate feedback during your stay is GREATLY APPRECIATED, and not viewed as an annoyance.
