Spanish Casita Guest House on an acre of a private estate

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.

Beautiful

Exactly what we were looking for. Great amenities! Private but near to everything. We took our son to Legoland and it was a 10 min drive. And we also went to San Diego and it was a 20 min drive.

Lovely, quiet, perfect location for a holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday as we were visiting friends and family for Thanksgiving. We searched for a place in Encinitas for two with a well equipped kitchen so we could make the dishes we offered to bring. This casita is just a described and portrayed in pictures. We enjoyed beautiful mornings sitting on the porch. The bed was very comfortable. Mac was available, responding to every request including sharing a potato masher. One day we went to the beach, it was very nice to have beach chairs at the Casita available to take along. We had lots of family time and would love to return to more fully explore Encinitas. When we do we hope this casita is available! We highly recommend, ample space for two people.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with stunning views. Clean, quiet and well decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Pictures simply do not do this home justice. The owners were a pleasure and their dogs were adorable. The location, while quiet and tucked away in the canyon was surprisingly near to great stores, restaurants and sights. Highly recommended. Thank you Mac and Tricia!

This property is fantastic, super quiet and well decorated! This is an Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked this Casita for a wedding at Barrels and Branches, which is .25 miles away! Upon arrival the owners greeted us and gave us a quick tour! Wow! What a view to the east, with a wrap around porch with plants and bird feeders, within a few minutes hummingbirds were giving us a show. The inside was well decorated with wood flooring and leather furniture and a very comfortable bed. Large walk in shower with super hot water. The kitchen was well stocked and had a large refrigerator! Washer and dryer was super handy.

Just can't say enough about the owners, super nice and they definitely love there property! Everything is well maintained.

Great place for two or three with a great electric inflatable bed. I would recommend this unit to anyone, book it fast! Thanks Mac and Tricia...
