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 Encinitas

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!

Light, Bright, and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We found the "Oceanview Terrace Casita" to be well equipped with everything one might need during a weeks stay in Encinitas. Lovely, well tooled kitchen, comfortable bed with quality bedding, good closet space with plenty of hangars, and a nice bathroom with fluffy towels. The large, beautiful porch surrounded by lush plantings is a great spot for morning coffee, and evening cocktails. The location is very convenient to the beaches, restaurants, Pacific Coast HWY, and the "5" Freeway as well. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly, and perfect for taking a long morning walk. The unit IS close to the Freeway, so there is some traffic noise, but it didn't bother us much. Eric, our host, couldn't have been more accommodating !

We would definitely stay here again !

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we sympathize regarding the freeway drone. We are praying for electric cars and mufflers on the cycles. Just had my first Telsa ride yesterday. Nice.

Heaven in Encinitas!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for my husband and I to relax and recoup while we were visiting our grandchildren and family. They were nearby but we had this lovely little casita to ourselves. Thanks Eric for being such a gracious host!
