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.

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!

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.
