Awake to beautiful sunrises, to the call of quail and dine watching hot air balloons in the evening. The Sedona like grounds are beautifully maintained with a stocked pond with a waterfall and several secluded areas for peaceful relaxation.
The newly and tastefully decorated custom built casita has one very private bedroom, one bath and a queen sized sleeper in the family room complete with 48' smart flat screen entertainment center, cable TV and 50 MB internet that enables you to watch your favorite shows on Netflix and listen to 1000's of artists on Pandora at no additional charge. There is a 30' smart flat screen in the bedroom with access to Pandora, Netflix and your favorite channels.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, gas stove, microwave and toaster oven, dish washer, clothes washer and dryer.
The easterly facing porch is large usable veranda complete with outdoor plantation like ceiling fans that overlooks a canyon meadow abundant with quail, hummingbirds, and other wildlife.
DelMar Racetrack and LaCosta Spa are just a 5 minute drive away. Close to multiple hiking trails and some of the best bicycling in California. It is a half hour drive to the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park and SeaWorld.
Encinitas enjoys some of the best weather in the continental US. fall average daytime high 68 degrees, low 60 degrees with cool sea breeze. When it is foggy at the beach it is typically clear here in the canyon.

Mac and Tricia Clarke purchased this cottage in 1995
The casita was completed in 2003 with highest quality of materials and has been available for family and friends over the years. Furnishings have been updated to accomodate out of town guests.
Mac and Tricia sought out property on Crest. Crest has some of the last remaining property that have acreage close to the coast allowing privacy, rural feel, yet close proximity to beach and amenities. Situated on over an acre, the property is perched over a six acre parcel. Owls, Bobcats, coyotes, rabbits, hawks soar. The main house has been remodeled over the years and landscaping is drought tolerant. Prior animals included miniature donkeys, and as many as seven peacocks.
Located in a canyon lush with cactus, many other large desert plants & flowers, we found the casita a tranquil place to unwind. The property is beautifully arranged with patios, decks & small alcoves for contemplating the natural scenery and catching (or escaping) the warm sunshine. Tho the owner's main house is nearby, the casita feels very private. The property is lovingly cared for.
The casita itself is nicely designed with good space and high ceilings. Big sliding glass doors provide wide open views to the east and make for pleasant, sunny mornings. The inside pictures on the VRBO site are entirely accurate. The leather couch & chair in the living room are big & comfy. All appliances & electronics were in working order. The bed was truly wonderful and the lavender scented linens pure heaven. We especially liked the big walk-in shower.
Grocery stores, coffee shops & restaurants are relatively close, but not walkable. We were looking for a peaceful spot, not a beach scene, so the casita was perfect. We drove where we needed to go and enjoyed exploring a few of the beaches and beach towns up & down highway 101. The San Diego Botanic Gardens are very close and not to be missed. Amazing! The Swami meditation gardens overlooking the Pacific are also wonderful.
Thanks to Mac & Tricia. We enjoyed our time at your casita and will be back... in November!

The casita was EXACTLY what we needed. Beautiful sunrises and Encinitas has it all! It was our first time in California and we are enchanted. Thank you Mac & Tricia..the casita, the view..everything exceeded our expectations!
The casita was just as described!
Clean, comfy, well-equipped, unique location, welcoming hosts and 2 friendly canines.
We were visiting family nearby and found ourselves torn, wanting to linger at the casita and also eager to visit with our family.
Since we are used to New England landscapes,
we found Quail Canyon and environs such fun to admire and to explore!
Thank you, Tricia and Mac, for sharing your amazing spot and casita!!!
Perfect setting and convenient to everything in the area - Beach, San Diego, Gardens, great coffee shop (The Buzz), etc. Owners were available and offered suggestions of what to see and where to eat. Great experience.
We are located 1.5 miles from the Swami’s beach in highly desirable and walkable Crest Drive Encinitas.
DelMar Racetrack, Legoland and LaCosta Spa and Quail Botanical Gardnens are just a 5 minute drive away. Close to multiple hiking trails and some of the best bicycling in California.
Encinitas has world class surfing and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
It is a half hour drive to the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park and SeaWorld.
