About Joan Woodland

It was love at first sight! All three generations of our family agreed that this cottage was perfect for not just our family but others coming to this wonderful vacation spot. The kids run down to the beach barefoot with surf boards or boogie boards to ride the waves and swim. The rest of the family joins in and soaks up the carefree atmosphere of the beach community with friends and family. Memories are being created every day.

We want to share the fun with everyone and our cottage reflects how much we take pride in our special spot!

Joan Woodland purchased this house in 2006

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this property, easy walking to restaurants, bars, shops and most importantly the beach! Lots of cosy places in the house to relax and socialise and a wonderful outside shower and everything you might need provided - Joan was incredibly generous with her hospitality, time and advice and booking was incredibly easy too - we were very lucky to find a slot as this property clearly gets booked up in advance - can't recommend highly enough!

Great place to stay in Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this house. The front yard, nicely landscaped, was the main hangout place for us. Bedrooms were nice and comfy. Moonlight beach was short distance distance away for a walk on the beach. The house had everything you wanted including a full stocked kitchen. Outside bathroom and shower was used very often by everyone. Joan and the owner are so nice. We are coming back for sure next year for an extended stay.

A slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe that I am only just writing a review now when this place is such a gem and I visited 4 months ago!

The Hideaway exceeded my expectations and my family and I, including my "old men" border collies, fell in love with this enchanting rental and can only hope we will be back to visit one day.

From the first communication with Joan, I knew that I was onto a winner when she replied that myself and my pets were more than welcome to book and stay. Joan is detailed, honest and so prompt with all communication; she made the process easy and seamless.

The property itself is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood just a few blocks from the beach. Sitting outside at any time of day is peaceful and relaxing; the outside spaces are perfect, lovely seating arrangements, fragrant and shady, filled with beautiful flowers, plants and trees. The lemons are abundant and make the most perfect lemonade.

Inside, everything you could want is provided. Clean, comfortable furniture; top class beds and linens; a quaint bathroom and the most comfortable living space. Lots of doors to open and let the fresh ocean air inside.

The garage is stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards and bikes! Everything is provided and much appreciated.

My dogs and I walked the neighborhood at all times and never once felt unsafe or worried. And there are many places within walking distance including the beach.

Encinitas and Leucadia were charming to explore. My family and I loved all the unique shops, restaurants and bars but especially enjoyed Leucadia Donut Shop, Lofty Coffee and Pannikin Coffee.

Easy access to the freeway, about a 20 min drive into San Diego and a lovely, scenic drive up and down US 101.

This was one of the best vacations I have had in years and I really hope to make it back out to Hemingway's Hideaway again, someday.

Amazing Little House!!

We stayed here for a week, and absolutely loved this rental! Unbeatable location, only a short walk to the beach, very comfy, close to everything. Loved the outside shower and bathroom, loved the cozy outdoor seating and relaxing area. Will be back for sure!!

Our "Piece of Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here since it was first a rental. We call it a "piece of heaven." 😊 Love it so much, we try to stay here once a year for a little get-away. Living locally, in east county, we feel like we are miles and miles away. So quite... Two lovely yards and lotsa spaces to find that quiet place. So many ways to enjoy this "piece of heaven" inside and out. 🛀🏻😎👙

It is so wonderful to walk Moonlight Beach every night and a great place to be in the daytime. There are so many great local restaurants. You can even walk to them, if you are a walker. Every time we come, there is even more to try. 🍴

We cannot say enough about this special place. Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones that come for a stay. Enjoy... 😊

April in Encinitas!

  • 5 of 5

April in Encinitas at Hemingway's Hideaway is better than Paris and a lot warmer! I stayed here the month of October and now a month in April. It's the perfect location to enjoy the beach, walk out for coffee or to town for dinner at one of the many great restaurants nearby. The house is both cozy and very roomy with its wonderful outdoor living room. Both the owner and the manager, Joan, are responsive to all requests. It's the best!!
