About Doris Arterburn and son, Eric Arterburn

We bought the property when our Grandson was born in Encinitas and fell in love with the prospect of our son living in the main house and having a place for us to stay when we visit.

Doris Arterburn and son, Eric Arterburn purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Doris Arterburn and son, Eric Arterburn chose San Diego County

We loved the 1940's villa main house with the unique private 1 bedroom casita over the garage. The grounds are beautiful and the area is somewhat secluded in a residential neighborhood.

What makes this bungalow unique

Beautiful second story Casita setting overlooking Encinitas Beach community with endless sunsets and large deck for outside activity and and a 'peak a boo' view of the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your warm hospitality. We had a fabulous time at your quaint casita in Encinitas! It was everything and more than we dreamed about! It was lovely, spacious, and serenity personified! My favorites were the fantastic windows! We basked in the bright light and fresh air. Lastly, the succulent gardens inspired us and we found one for our house at the nursery. Indeed, the casita is a very special place! We hope to return one day!

Always

consistent with a warm greeting and welcoming energy. The Casita, tended to by Eric, is our home away from home, for the past four years. Thank you Eric for your kind attention and attention to detail : )

Best,

VaLohna and Gary

The casita has a nice layout for dining in,lounging,yoga or reading.

  • 4 of 5

The casita is well lit with skylights and windows and has a warm ambience. The appliances we're all top shelf (except the tv and dvd which could use an upgrade). It has a nice patio for grilling or hanging out. Bed was comfy. Close walking to Encinitas and beaches or hopping on the trains. We dined in a lot and enjoyed the ease of the layout inside and out. Eric was around much of the time to help with any questions. If we were in the area again we would probably come back it just had a good feel.

Close to town

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we arrived to when we left the Casita was everything we desired. Perfect location and perfect size for two people. We got used to the freeway noise after a bit. The windows cut out quite a bit of the noise. Eric, the owner greeted us and made sure we were comfortable and understood the tv. It was nice to sit on the patio and watch the sunset over the ocean. Easy, and close, walk into town then back along the beach to Stonesteps. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a getaway!

The property was beautiful, the challenge was it is near a 6 lane highway which is vert noisy.

The casita is beautiful, the only challenge was that is it very near a 6 lane highway which you hear constantly even with the windows closed!
