About Ben

Owned since 2005, I moved from San Diego for my job, but stayed in nearby Los Angeles. I still come down some summer weekends and I take pride in keeping the place in great shape.

Ben purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Ben chose San Diego County

It's just a perfect location, close to downtown Encinitas, close to beach, and really relaxing. It wasn't originally a vacation rental (I lived here) and I think it's a great mix of home and vacation.

An outstanding property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I have only positive feedback after having rented this property for in excess of 90 days. Extremely clean, well maintained and fully equipped for a very comfortable lifestyle, it is located on the Encinitas bluff with many restaurants (try the Peruvian for something tasty and different, Ribbons at the end of the street or the Union Bar for a cocktail) and there are many activities within walking distance. You are in the middle of the action without the noise Moonlight and Swammies beaches are also within walking distance. Ben, our owner provided outstanding customer service on the few occasions we needed him, what's more the property was exactly as he had explained it. As a regular traveller I am pleased to say that this is one of the best properties I have stayed at, thank you Ben a pleasurable experience I would have no hesitation in recommending friends or relatives to stay with you, hopefully we will be back in the future

The Encinitas beach house was the perfect place for us to stop and spend a week on a grand tour of the States.

We're a family of 4, kids are 10 and 13 and despite them sharing a room, this condo was just great. We had the pool to ourselves, the short walk to the beach was fun and the surf AMAZING, plus the weather was glorious.

We had a family surf lesson and our son hired a board for the week from the local surf shop. We sat on Moonlight beach literally in the moonlight, we did lots of running and lots of eating (amazing Whole Foods round the corner) and I even had an incredible massage at the Aveda Lemongrass salon a block away. My daughter and I had pedicures and the shopping was fun. I did a yoga session or two and we also saw the monks having their annual conference! We caught the hopper to San Diego, which was beautiful and highly recommended!

Sounds packed but we also chilled out on the comfy sofas in the condo and watched crazy TV.

The house is clean, has everything you need and in a great location.

The owner, Ben, could not have been more helpful. He gave us stacks of advice and recommendations and answered every question promptly and patiently. We even had a gorgeous welcome basket. Top place for a spoiled and laid back holiday!

The condo was everything we needed it to be!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in the perfect location, only a short walk to the beach and some wonderful restaurants! The owner is very in tune with the needs of the guest. We fell in love with Encinitas on this trip. The complex itself is quiet and well kept, we loved everything about our stay and would stay again without a doubt! We are even considering moving to the area we liked it so much!

First class vacation townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the property we were blown away by the niceness and layout. This first class vacation property comes with every possible amenity to make for an enjoyable beach vacation.

The bathrooms looked newly renovated and there were plenty of soft towels.

There were a considerable number of both video games and board games to keep everyone happy when not out at nearby Moonlight beach. A welcome basket filled with goodies was a pleasant surprise.

It was a short walk from many fine restaurants and shops. Among those, D Street Bar and Grill had a great menu and Leukadia Pizza had some tasty pizza. There were also several frozen yogurt and gelato shops nearby which we enjoyed.

A short seven mile drive brought us to both Costco for shopping, and Legoland, which was enjoyed by the children.

I highly recommend this property as a fine place to go to be in a super beach town.

Californian Dream Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 great days in this townhouse in Encinitas. It's in excellent condition and has all the mod cons, wifi etc that makes a stay so seamless, comfortable and enjoyable. Encinitas is a great town with lots of bars, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets and is very conveniently located for heading to San Diego or venturing further north. The Pacfic is a stones throw away and the continuous waves are great for the children's bodyboarding. The owner couldn't be more pleasant and helpful and the handy hints he provided - ranging from local shops to things to do and places to eat - really added to our stay.

Fabulous choice for your Southern California Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for almost 2 weeks at the end of August. I was extremely pleased with every aspect of this property. It was exactly as described in the write-up. Very spacious, clean and well maintained. A big draw for my family was that it is an easy walk to both the beach and downtown Encinitas. It was also a great walK along the ocean drive to Cardiff.

When several minor issues arose, I was able to contact the owner either by cell phone or e-mail. I would stay at this property again in a minute.

Car: recommended

Near Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla, the Del Mar Racetrack & Fairgrounds. Excellent surfing spots, amazing Yoga, plus the beach of course, all close by. Sea World is a short drive away, plus Knots Soak City, Lego Land, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park! The coaster (light rail) is a short walk away, and Downtown San Diego, with its great food, nightlife, and sports venues is a short trip from this townhouse!

And if you enjoy shopping, close by all along the 101 coast highway are all kinds of ecclectic shops with unique finds. If you enjoy outlet shopping, head up the coast a little more and stop by the huge outlet shopping center in Carlsbad.
