What a place to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in coastal Southern California. There are three outdoor living areas that provide amazing retreat and entrainment options. The outdoor wood fire is surrounded by deep seating to create the perfect evening garden lounge. The gas fireside dining deck provides a sunrise coffee venue or romantic fireside dining experience. Sink into to the Palapa spa for a cedar tub soak or surrender in the Palapa day bed for a siesta. Enjoy it all! These areas provide ample choices to fit your mood and really take you away from your daily life!
This is an ideal escape for 2-3 people (or 2 +/- 2 children) looking for a high quality resort property on a personal scale. Feel free to inquire about available services, activities and events. The house web site has additional links and activity details too! Grab the bikes and ride to and along the beach or try longboarding on one of the surfboards! Everything you need is waiting for you to walk in and immediately feel at home!
A native Southern California coastal resident for 40+ years! I have spent the past 20 years in North San Diego County enjoying the coastal community and environment as I will always be drawn to a western sunset! I have a 20+ year commercial real estate background with broad geographic coverage with a Global firm before starting my own firm in 2011, Commercial West Realty Advisors. Love traveling and using VRBO/Homeaway properties all over! Spend lots of time in Baja enjoying the rugged country it offers In close proximity to San Diego. Trail running in local mountains occupies much of my time as well. Just love that southern CA lifestyle so much....
Eric Hutchison purchased this house in 1999
I looked into Encinitas since it is a great beach town with tremendous locational benefits! Coastal access for beach and surfing is awesome, trials for running, and great easy access to both downtown Encinitas and the greater road systems, etc! Love the quiet neighborhood of eclectic homes dating back to the 30's! Large lot sizes allow for more than typical land per house in comparison to any other coastal community!
There is a solar powered Level 2 Charge Station J1772 available with prior arrangement. We support electric cars powered by the sun!
Thank you for everything. We loved our stay at the "Hutch" and will be back again for sure. Your place, landscaping, and generosity are amazing. If only everyone were as friendly, hospitable and laid back as you... we could all just enjoy life a little more.
The cottage is a most wonderful place to stay. It is just delightful. We enjoyed just being around the property, especially drinking cocktails on the warm evenings. There is so much room and everything you could need for a brilliant stay. The walk into Encintas itself is along very quiet streets and there is a good choice of places to eat and drink there. We enjoyed every minute of our time there and the owner is happy to chat about things to do, places to eat and anything else that springs to mind. I can't recommend Eric and his cottage highly enough. If we return to the area we would not consider staying anywhere else.
This is a beautiful cottage home in a great location. We felt right at home. It was minutes from the beach and restaurants in town. It was clean and beautifully decorated. It also had all the amenities we needed for the beach (chairs, boogie boards, buckets, etc). My son especially enjoyed roasting marshmallows on the fire every evening. We would definitely stay here again!!!
Best ever accommodations. It's comfortable and cozy with plenty of room and lovely outdoor space. We had a great time and had everything we needed including great host that was only around as much as we needed. Perfect!!
This cottage was absolutely beautiful inside and out. We were very happy with the space overall and the view was amazing.. Not only we were 10 mins away from the beach, we were also close to convenience stores. I would definitely recommend this cottage to other couples or family traveling to San Diego!!!
Enjoyed this cottage so much during our stay. It felt like home. Loved the rain shower, outdoor area and furnishings. Near by is the cutest town, awesome beach and the botanical gardens which my little kids loved. We were sad to leave! Thanks for a beautiful place for us to enjoy.
We stayed for five days, and completely enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and very comfortable. The out-door seating areas were a definite plus. Will stay there whenever I need to be in the San Diego area!
The beach is a 10 minute walk and the historic downtown Encinitas is two blocks! Hit the beach, farmers markets, street fairs or surf at one of the local spots. Legoland, Del Mar Track, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Cedros Design district, and Del mar are all close by and just the tip of available activities in San Diego. Encinitas is a great suf town with a popular coastal main street.
