This vacation rental property is extraordinary. We highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

The ocean views from the patio are heavenly!! We extended our stay this year to two weeks and we couldn't be more pleased. The owner has thoughtfully provided everything you need for a relaxing vacation--from a fully furnished kitchen, to comfortable beds with high quality bedding, televisions in every room and everything you would possibly want during your time at the beach--ending with a warm outdoor shower before you step back inside. There is no better proximity near the stairway leading down to the beach--it was so easy to go back and forth throughout the day. We were lucky enough to see a school of dolphins that were so close, we didn't need to use the binoculars the owner provided. Warning--you may get your best night's sleep --ever-- in the master bedroom, thanks to the "ocean's lullaby." We plan to return next year.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row that we have rented this home for a week. It is amazing! The home is comfortable and spacious. The views from every room are spectacular. The soft sound of the ocean waves can be heard from everywhere. And the deck... well, we practically live out on the deck enjoying the sun, the wind, and the views the entire week. This is a wonderful place. We highly recommend it. It's worth every penny!

A beautiful home for a restful beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful beach house for a week after school got out. Our kids didn't want to come home at the end of 7 days. We are family of four, with two little boys ages 5 and 7. We needed a restful, calm, "family together" type of vacation. The owners of this home are very nice and met us in person to do walk through of the house. They were very responsive to the few queries we had. This home is very well appointed and literally there was not a thing that we needed that wasn't available. The kitchen was stocked with high quality pots and pans and sharp henckel knives. I so much appreciated this as I prepared many meals in this house. The home has been nicely updated with beautiful aesthetics (i.e. granite countertops every where, beautiful cabinetry). The home was supplied with plenty of toiletries, paper products, soap for dishwashing and laundry. Again, I so much appreciated not having to go out and purchase these items. All bedding and towels were high quality. The house was very clean and nicely maintained. Our family enjoyed using the owners' beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys too. I feel like we got the best house in the community because this home is situated right next to the stairs that go down to the beach which was ideal when you have little kids that get hungry or need to use the rest room without warning. Our family really enjoyed the patio overlooking the beach and ocean. The patio has a cute sofa that we all would cuddle up on at the end of the evening to watch the sunset and sit and chat. It was beautiful. We left the patio doors open to listen to the beautiful ocean waves after the children went to sleep and caught up on our reading. I got to finish two books which seems like a miracle. We also used the swimming pool on a daily basis which the entire family enjoyed. This property felt like a very well managed hotel because of all of the amenities, but still had the comforts of a home. We loved the little town of Leucadia as is calm and not overrun. Leucadia has a wonderful donut shop and several good restaurants, our favorites included the mexican seafood restaurant called Cancun and the japanese restaurant right in town. The owners provided a wealth of information the details of the home and also on the restaurants and activities available in the area. We are looking forward to our next visit to this home. Thank you so much.

loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beach front town home. We hope to visit again in the future!

Pros: super well stocked house - probably the best of all the VRBOs we've stayed in. We appreciated the full size bar of soap, shampoo, detergent etc.

Breathtaking views of ocean and amazing sunsets

Clean, comfy mattresses, nice bedding and towels

Great location with direct access to beach

Quiet home with no other tenants above or below

Top end appliances

Cons: as much as we loved the place there are a couple things renters should know:

Master bedroom on top floor has no door thus not completely private

Hot tub and one pool is under remodel and shut down

The stairs next to the home offer easy enough access to beach below but much of the time when we wanted to go down, the high tide covered all of the beach and made it impossible to enjoy

Perfect home, Perfect beaches and Perfect beach town

  • 5 of 5

I always hate writing reviews for places that we loved, for fear that we will give away a secret to others and then have trouble booking again. But while I would like to keep it a secret Rick's home home deserves a glowing review. We were there for a week in September with family ranging in age from 12 to 87. Everyone of us absolutely loved the place. The home was absolutely spotless and is in the very best location in the entire SeaBluff community. The views from the deck are unobstructed and the sunsets were amazing every single evening. You have direct access to the beach via a steep set of stairs but if you have people with mobility problems there is great access just a few minutes away to both Moonlight and Carlsbad beaches. The other huge plus is the location's proximity to the best beach towns in California--Encinitas/Leucadia are fun and authentic and DelMar and solana Beach are only minutes away.

All and all just a super place! Thanks Rick--hope to see you next year.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks at Rick's home in June, and although this review is late, it's not because our vacation was awful. We had the most amazing time - this complex is perfect for little kids. It has a pool and the beach, and Rick's location couldn't be better. You overlook the ocean from a beautiful deck and every water facing window, and you are less than 1 block down a path to the pool. The property is beautiful - equipped with everything we wanted. I'd be happy to return if we find ourselves in Southern CA again. Thank you!!!
