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.

Our family moved to Encinitas, California from Nebraska in 2008. The weather here is absolutely fantastic! There is something to do for everyone here.
Steve Reeder purchased this cottage in 2012
This property is perfect for an individual or couple that desire a quiet space to retreat after a day exploring the many beaches, parks, restaurants, art museums, horse racing, and theme park attractions. Farmers market down the street in Encinitas every Wednesday.
Close to the beach for surfing or simply, long beach walks. From down the street you get sweeping ocean views, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets. Encinitas is your sweet Southern California coastal town that is very laid back and full of vibrant charm. We have water purification system for both drinking and shower. Enjoy our infra-red BBQ grill for outside grilling. Private entrance to the cottage.
My adult daughter and I were warmly welcomed and enjoyed our stay at Brenda and Steve's pristine cottage! We especially enjoyed the location, which was a short, and beautifully scenic walk down the hill to Swami's Beach ( lots of surfers) and charming downtown Encinitas!. While the entrance to the cottage is directly on the back of their large, beautiful home, we found it to be very quiet, comfortable and private. Brenda and Steve have provided everything you need and much more, including lots of information about local restaurants, etc. We look forward to returning and will also recommend to family. Just hope to stay longer next time and take advantage of the beach chairs and bikes that were offered!
Steve & Brenda's beach casita is Amazing!! Super nice & comfortable. They are so very hospitable and have created a lovely place to stay for guests that are looking for the ultimate beach getaway. They live in the best location too if you're beach people like us. We will definitely be back!
Very good location for beach and north county base. Steve was responsive and being onsite helpful for any concerns/questions.
My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend away and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for all of the things we wanted to do and very quiet!
We rented this cozy and beautiful casita for a dear family friend who would be visiting while in town. We wanted only the best for him, and this cottage was perfect. Impeccably clean, simple and thoughtfully designed with beautiful materials. The location is perfect for a quick walk down the hill to town, Swamis, Self Realization Fellowship and Meditation Gardens, and the beach. The hosts are super easy to work with, quick to respond and wonderfully friendly. Would gladly recommend for a great stay in Encinitas.
We recently stayed in this "casita". The kitchen was great, but I really did not cook anything while I was there. It looked like it had everything you would need. It is quite new and therefore everything was clean. Our hosts were great, helpful, but left us to enjoy our stay.
Watch beautiful sunsets, walk three blocks to one of San Diego's most famous surf breaks. Downtown Encinitas offers great restaurants, day spas, yoga studios, surf lessons and bike rentals.
There is a $115 clean fee in addition to the rental. We do a thorough cleaning after EVERY guest. The City of Encinitas charges a 10% Occupancy Tax on Vacation Rentals. If couples want to bring their infant or toddler there is a $35.00 per night charge in addition to our base rate.
