About Natasha Kimmell

We are the Kimmell Family. My two daughters, my granddaughter and myself live in the San Francisco area and my son lives in Carlsbad not far from our Encinitas home. We fell in love with the town of Encinitas the first time we came here in 2005 and finally were able to purchase this home in 2007. I grew up in Miami, Florida but moved to the Bay Area in 1969 where all three of my children grew up.

Natasha Kimmell purchased this house in 2007

Why Natasha Kimmell chose San Diego County

Ever since we purchased this delightful home our family has enjoyed yearly vacations together enjoying the gracious amenities of this property, the ocean, the walks on the beach, the surfing, the great weather and the easy access to all that Encinitas has to offer. We so look forward to coming back every year but we also enjoy sharing this wonderful home with all our guests.

What makes this house unique

Close to beach, 2 car garage, beautifully landscaped with automatic outside lighting, gated yard, outdoor eating areas, outdoor barbecue, large fully equipped kitchen, cosy fire pit, jacuzzi tub in master bathroom, gas fireplaces in living room and master suite, cable T V including premium channels, Wi-FI, TV's in living room and all 3 bedrooms.

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married 3/29/14 at the Botanic Gardens nearby. This house was perfect for our family to stay. It was very comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and had any amenity one could want. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

Such a spectacular retreat! The home is beautiful and has all the amenities one could want - we had a Father's Day brunch and grilled one night and needed nothing but the food. The location is lovely - requiring only a neighborhood stroll to the beach. We all had such fun. We would happily return any time. Thanks for the relaxing vacation!

Absolute Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and clean home. My wife and I rented the home from 10/4 through 10/18/2016 and had such an enjoyable time. It is a great home away from home that we felt very comfortable in. It was perfect and provided everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and ware. We were a block away from Stone Steps and Pannikins and enjoyed walks to Beacons Beach, Grandview Beach and Moonlight Beach. We also rode the bikes to Swami's. It is a very quiet neighborhood and I was pleasantly surprised to find that train noise was not an issue. We would definitely rent it again and highly recommend this home to others.

We had a great time staying here. There was plenty of room for everyone. Loved being able to open the doors and let air flow through. All the amenities were great. Could not have asked for a better stay. Definitely will look to stay here again!

Perfect beach house holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the beach house in every way. We walked three blocks to the beach everyday. A block away is one of the best coffee shops in Encinitas! A block in the other direction is one of the best taco shops in San Diego! The house is nestled in a cute little beachy neighborhood and has a wonderful yard to sit and relax in. The house is spacious and well appointed. Everything you need is here. The beds were all super comfy. This is a great property!
