Encinitas Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

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.

This upscale unit is located in a quiet area just a few blocks from famous Moonlight Beach, and 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. Bring your MP3s and play the music thru the sound system as you sit in your private backyard which is lushly landscaped and includes a Weber gas barbecue.

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

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.

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.

We loved this cottage! It was immaculate and had everything you would ever need.

  • 5 of 5

This property was in excellent condition, very clean and very convenient to shops, restaurants and most important it was two short blocks from an excellent beach. Warren greeted us and made it clear to not hesitate to call him if we needed anything. Besides the normal furnishings all beach supplies were available , he has chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards etc. And best of all a cart to accommodate all of it! It is a great place to relax and enjoy the area. Also, Warren has a book with how to work things, many places to eat (with menus) and things to do, it was a great help.

Overall, this is a great place to stay with a great landlord and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. Warren and Meryl were very friendly and helpful. The home was clean. Had everything including little things one may forget to bring like shampoo, lotion, etc. The private yard is very nice to have BBQ's in and our dogs really enjoyed hanging out in the yard. We had a BBQ all most every night instead of going out because the the property is very relaxing and enjoyable. Appreciate how friendly Warren was to our dogs. And he had great advice on local things to do around town and in San Diego. Verrryyyy close to Moonlight beach. Which is nice to avoid driving. All around great place to stay.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Being so close to the beach and so close to downtown Encinitas, it couldn't be a more perfect location. Warren and his wife were very accommodating and had some great suggestions for restaurants too. It is a small rental, but is perfect for two people + a dog or child. Couldn't have been happier with our VRBO! If we head back to this area of California, we will definitely look into renting this unit again.
