Why Carol and Tony Hyde chose Encinitas
We both were drawn to Encinitas for the same reason- its' laid back Southern California charm. Through the years we have enjoyed sharing the many attributes of our location with our friends and family and have recently decided we would like to expand that pool to include guests through VRBO.
What makes this Cottage unique
Primarily we offer a quiet space for our guests that is within comfortable walking distance from the beach and town. (about a 15 minute walk!).We enjoy maintaining our cottages' gardenlike setting and look forward to offering a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere to those who are drawn to come. For the more adventuresome, the local surfshops provide rentals and equipment to indulge your passion. Surf Camps and Surf Lessons are offered close to Moonlight Beach, right down the way. The sidewalks don't close up at 8:00 pm anymore, Encinitas has it's share of nightlife, music and drinking establishments that 'pepper' the Coast Highway.

Great location...awesome hosts!
Carol and Tony were awesome hosts. Communication was above board from the planning stages and throughout our visit. We really appreciated their quick responses and always checking to be sure everything was going well. Enjoyed our chats with them a lot. Wonderful location, definitely close enough to everything. Lots of restaurants and fun things to explore in the area. Beautiful beaches in the area. Not so sure you could walk to beach though, big hill, or at least not carrying too much! While the closest beaches have a walkway down a steep cliff, just down the road a little bit are incredible, flat gorgeous beaches. Go before noon and you have free street parking...later, use a pay lot. Clean, cute and comfortable cottage. Nice area in the backyard for morning coffee. "Meals in" are definitely doable but keep in mind ahead of time that the oven, fridge and sink are small...plan accordingly. So many really good restaurants in the area for breakfast, lunch and dinner! We would stay here again anytime we headed to Encinitas. Loved it!
Amazing Do it!
Great location owners are kind and communication is outstanding the place is beautiful and of great value. 14 minute walk to beach. The Casita is spacious and clean and the garden is spectacular. No noise and just awesome. 5 stars. Thanks Again Carol and Tony! You made our time in Encinitas splendid all around.
The Perfect Place For Us
Carol and Tony were the perfect hosts for our great stay in the casita. We brought our granddaughters to the San Diego area for a short vacation and had a wonderful time and the perfect place to stay. Several great beaches are minutes away and the rental had boogie boards, chairs, beach towels, and beach toys. An outdoor shower was available upon our return. The casita is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The beds were great. LEGOLAND and Del Mar racetrack are close and one of our favorite restaurants, Trattoria Positano, is 5 minutes away. We would love a return visit!

Nice Southern California Getaway
The property owners were very nice and have created a small, but functional beach cottage type of vibe to come back to after full days at the beaches, San Diego, Legoland, etc. There's a grocery store within walking distance, and the I-5 is less than a minute away; close enough to get to, but without any of the traffic noise.
Great little casita!!!
This was our second time staying here. We booked last minute so we only got to say a few days. Tony was very helpful. The rental was well stocked and check in and check out was very easy. We are a family of 4 and we were very comfortable. We plan on staying here again!!
A home away from home
Carol and Tony’s cottage was a perfect place for our little family 👪. The cottage was very clean and cozy. It was close to the interstate and beach. It was quiet and a lovely place to stay. We would highly recommend it and believe us we will be back again soon.
