About Vince Jewell
Vince and Gail are retired educators. We travel extensively with our Golden Retriever, "Blue", and rent our house while we travel.
Vince Jewell purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Vince Jewell chose Encinitas
The house is in a great location. Great beaches/surf spots nearby, and Old Town Encinitas just down the hill. Easy freeway access and a commuter train to San Diego. An easy drive to Legoland, Balboa Park, Petco Park (for baseball fans), Old Town, The Gaslamp area, and Little Italy.
What makes this Cottage unique
We seldomly use our car on the weekend, choosing to BBQ on the deck, or walk to one of the nearby restaurants for dinner. We walk, run, or bike at the beach almost every day.

Terrific, cozy house with great outdoor space on a lovely street!
We had a perfect stay at Vince & Gail's house. The house is comfortable, and has everything you need in an awesome location close to town, beaches, scenic vistas and everything else you need for a Southern California stay. Thank you for everything!
Ideal beach retreat!
We absolutely loved our stay in this wonderful, well kept beach home. Location is fantastic and owner could not have been more helpful and gracious. We hope to be able to enjoy this property again in the future!
this rental would be listed as premium!
This house is truly a home away from home. Every amenity, wonderful quiet neighborhood, and very close to all the entertainment in Encinitas and beyond. The hosts had everything ready down to cushions and tablecloths on the outside picnic table. They shared great info about the house and the area. I highly recommend.
Great stay for family with young kids and dog
We loved our stay at Vince's place in Encinitas! We were there for a few weeks scoping out the area ahead of an upcoming move with our 2 young kids and our dog. It was a great place for them - the yard is fenced in and safe, we spent tons of time at the dog park / playground combo right around the corner, and we loved having so many restaurants and the beach within easy walking distance. The neighbors were all friendly, and Vince was accessible throughout our stay and very personable and helpful! We would stay again in a heartbeat.
Nature nature everywhere
We went for many walks in this beautifully quiet, green Encinitas neighbourhood. This area has an incredible variety of amazing trees and plants. The house has so many windows you feel like you have a bit of nature inside all the time. The kitchen is well equipped, with an efficient island in the middle. The deck is accessible from three different rooms, making it a great layout for access to outdoor cooking and sitting, and the furniture and decor are arranged for maximum enjoyment. Moonlight and Swami Beaches are close by and provided pleasant walks, although the storms of spring 2017 seem to have dragged quite a few rocks up. This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location.
Great location and home
House was well stocked and well furnished. We are a family of 5 with 3 young daughters. Decided to bring our border collie on his first trip to the beach. There's a dog park a short distance down the street. Plenty of areas around that allow dogs on the patio when dining out. We frequented the dog beach in Del Mar and Cardiff. Back yard is large and secure. Plenty of great dining options and shopping within walking distance. We had a very relaxing stay even with 3 kids under 10 and a dog! Owners were very welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.
