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.

Beautiful house with huge bedrooms lots of space

  • 5 of 5

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!

Stunning home & great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is so adorable! Our friends had a house on the beach and we loved ours so much more. The wrap around patio/yard made opening up the doors and windows so relaxing and the greenery is so tropical. There are 3 bathrooms: 2 full bathrooms upstairs (Jack and Jill between the 2 bedrooms & the huge master bath) and a powder room (toilet and sink) downstairs. The beds are very comfortable and all the rooms are hug. The entire house was very spacious and so beautiful. In the garage there are boogie boards, an umbrella, chairs, and 2 mountain bikes (plus more I just don't' remember). The kitchen is fully stocked and so are the bathrooms, just bring your food and clothes!

I'd recommend bringing your beach cruiser bikes and driving around on those, there is no need to drive a car - everything is less then a mile away. I'd also recommend going to Moonlight Beach, which is the main beach in Encinitas - if you want something more private then there is beach access closer to the house.

The Best Bars for Yummy Drinks & Amazing Food:

1) Bier Garden (1 mile bike ride South - so worth it)

2) Priority Public House (a short walk North)

Breakfast: Pannikin (short walk)

Yummy Italian food: Trattoria (not sure if called Maurizio or Vigilucci's Trattoria) -great prices, great food, fancy-ish (short walk North)

Winery & great apps: Solterra (North short bike ride)

We are excited to go back and check out the other places that we didn't make it to.

PS If you don't have beach cruisers to bring. They are for rent, 1 mile South for $40/day.

PSS Since there is no need for a/c everyone sleeps with their windows open so it makes sense for the noise issue because if you are just talking on your patio the neighbors can hear since they are so close and the windows are all open. After 10pm we just moved our card game playing inside the house at the awesome kitchen table.

Beautiful Encinitas Home

  • 4 of 5

Natasha was very easy and comfortable to work with. She responded promptly to my questions and has an open and gracious attitude. The home was very clean, spacious, close to the beach, and had everything we required. The house is located 2 blocks from the beach, and 2 blocks from a great coffee shop. The neighborhood, although the homes are close together, was relatively quiet and peaceful. The only negative I can say about the overall positive experience is that the palm trees on one side of the house have berries that attract lots of flies so when the doors are open (there are no screen doors) lots of flies come in. We had a graduation party for my son, and a baby shower for my daughter, a birthday party for my father who turned 92 and our entire family appreciated the opportunity to share these key life experiences together in Natasha's home.

Perfect beach get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our family get away to the beach. The house was beautiful and rooms were large. Loved that we could walk to the beach each day and back for sunset.

Awesome home

  • 3 of 5

We love the home, it was very comfortable and roomy. The kids loved the Jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed sitting out on the front and side patios with coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Very quiet neighborhood. Loved having the beach toys and chairs available. Walk to the beach was close but lots of steps and when the tide comes in there is no beach so we drove a little down the road to Moonlight Beach for the kids. The beaches along this area had lots of rocks and the kids got scraped up. The only issues were we texted owners son because there was very little paper towels in kitchen and we were informed they only provide the roll at beginning of rental and no replacements. Found that a bit odd since there was nothing noted when we made the reservation. We would have brought paper towels and toilet tissue. Had to go to store, six guests for 5 nights and no extra paper products. Never had this experience before with VRBO. We did park my sisters SUV on street due to tight turn into back alleyway. Neighbor sprayed her vehicle with the hose because she wanted to park there and said we took her spot. The same neighbor also told the children playing in front grass area to play quietly and not be at side of home because it upset her parrot. Seriously these children are 6 and 8! Cranky, nosey old woman. Sorry but we will not stay here again with children. Adults will be fine. It was also very warm even with ceiling fans and would have appreciated stand fans for night sleeping comfort.

Owner's Response: Dear Christy, I'm so glad you liked our home, we truly try to make our guests as comfortable and happy as possible when staying here and I'm so sorry you experienced some unpleasantness during your stay. I have no control over the behavior of our neighbor (she must have been in a really bad mood) but I can and will make sure that there are plenty of back up supplies and extra fans for the comfort of our future guests. Thank you for your input - your comments were much appreciated and will help us make an even better experience for a future stay in our home. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have been caused. Best Regards, Natasha
