What a comfortable home. Everything was spotless upon Arrival. There were nice bed linens, plenty of towels, supplies for the week, including beach towels! Easy beach walk to Swamis and a friendly neighborhood. I'd rent again in a heartbeat!

Very Nice House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week and really enjoyed the location and accommodations. House is nicely decorated, comfortable and well equipped with just about everything you need (pots and pans but also surf boards and beach chairs). Great master bedroom. Trundle bed was a little uncomfortable in the second bedroom (I'd recommend just putting a queen in that room) and the patio could use some additional seating but overall, very nice place for the price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your good review and helpful suggestions! I am so happy that you and your guests had a fun and relaxing time. This year I added the surfboards to my selection of watersports equipment, I am thrilled you enjoyed them. I furnish several types of beach chairs, sand chairs and extra folding patio chairs with arm rests. In addition to my outdoor furniture set of a couch and two arm chairs, I just added more patio furniture. The trundle bed is another simple solution, when I offer the bed to be made up as a king, I will add a thick, comfortable "topper" mattress for a comfy night's sleep. Thank you again for choosing my Spanish Bungalow for your vacation. I look forward to having you back for your next holiday. Happy Adventures, Helen

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We and our two school aged children really enjoyed our stay at this house in Encinitas, and will definitely be back the next time in the San Diego area. It is comfortable and very tastefully decorated, including the beds. Doors on three sides of the house open into the yard, which is gorgeous. We loved sitting on the deck and patio, and also being able to use the new BBQ. The house is handy to the beach, I-5 and 101, and downtown Encinitas, without feeling like being in the middle of the bustle. We had our car, but it seems like it would also be a good choice for people without a car -- a park is within easy walking distance, and not too much further is the rail line, some busses, and a small but very friendly Whole Foods and weekly farmer's market. The beach is also walkable though not as close, and all the beach chairs and toys you might need are available to borrow. The owner of the house was wonderful to work with.

Happy Vacationer

  • 5 of 5

This property was even more beautiful in person! The outside area all around the house is full of green and colorful plants & trees. We really enjoyed sitting out on the patio area in the evenings to enjoy the beautiful weather. The inside of the house was immaculate, the bedrooms were bigger than what I had anticipated (its kind of hard to tell with the pictures) so that was a plus. The description of the house on line was very accurate, but I still think it was better in person. The Master bedroom had a large closet and big bathroom. Each room was nicely decorated. My husband, myself and my children really loved it here, I hated to leave! It is just over a mile away from the beach, Moonlight Beach was nice. However,you have several beaches to choose from close to the house. The town/city area, close to the beach was nice to walk around as well, a lot of restaurants, stores, etc. The neighborhood, was really nice also and very quite. Was a relaxing vacation and we can't wait to come back here to stay. I have already told all my friends and family about this place if they are looking for a nice get away! I definitely recommend it. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home!

Charming and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home was beautifully decorated with a cool decor vibe with a great beach feel. Lots of indoor outdoor living and so much space for the entire family. We stayed here with our two teenagers and there was plenty of room. The secondary rooms are on opposites sides and the master is in the middle. The linens are high end and we had everything we needed. I will miss sitting outside on the deck watching the early morning people walking their dogs while I sip my coffee in the morning and my wine in the evening. Walking distance to restaurants if you want a little exercise, and far enough to where you don't hear the crazy party people at night.

Helen was a great help if we needed anything and we can't wait to come back. The pictures do not do this lovey place justice. It is also much bigger than it appears. I'll miss this house!
