About the property

A tranquil, charming cottage retreat offering low allergen environment

We recently finished building a state-of-the-art home with a private, separate cottage on our property. Our all concrete, eco-friendly construction offers polished concrete floors with radiant heat floors (think warm feet), and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, cooking and dining supplies. Gas cooktop and double ovens. Healthy water purification system means you can drink right out of the tap with peace of mind and includes toxin-free showering and bathing. We use only organic, biodegradable cleaning products. If you need a clean, non-toxic environment you found the right place. Our lovely little cottage is bright, quiet, offers coastal breezes, and a space where you can retreat, read, and write. Private outdoor area for reading, eating and soaking up sun. If you have any questions about this great cottage please email us by clicking on "ask owner a question".

We are located a short walk (three blocks) from Swami's State Beach. Downtown Encinitas offers shops, art galleries, over 30 restaurants, boutiques, brew pubs, yoga studios and gourmet coffee cafes within walking distance. Lazy Acres has a new store nearby on Encinitas Blvd. The Coaster stops in downtown Encinitas. For hikers we have San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve and the Torrey Pines State Reserve nearby. For shoppers the Cedros Avenue Design District is to the south in Solana Beach and to the north, is the Carlsbad Premium Outlet stores. There are many attractions in San Diego County. Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Wild Animal Park, Downtown San Diego Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and Coronado Island. Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm is located about one hour north on I-5. We are three blocks from Scripps Memorial Hospital and right off Santa Fe Drive (border between Encinitas and Cardiff by the Sea).

Cottage is limited to two persons. We have bikes, beach chairs, beach towels and beach mats for our guests to use. We would like to offer you a warm welcome to Encinitas and a healthy, happy stay with us!

Great location, super clean and well stocked casita with great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and efficiency of this casita. It is an easy walk to Swami's or downtown Encinitas. We had a car, but you could walk to the Coaster/bus station if you wanted to venture north or south. The unit is very clean with all of the toys and comforts anyone could want. The hosts were there when we checked in and were available if we needed anything (we didn't). We would definitely stay there again.
