About Galyn Thompson
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!
Galyn Thompson purchased this House in 2006

The property is a short walk to a beautiful beach with solid surfing. The downtown area is a longer walk or short car ride for night life/food. The house and backyard felt comfortable, like home. The neighborhood was beautiful and peaceful. I feel like I am coming off a little sappy here, but this place was reasonably priced, so I lowered my expectations going into the weekend because every place around this was much more expensive. Needless to say, we were blown away. My group loved the place and we had an amazing time. Can't wait to rent this place again.
Perfect location in Enci. Near beach and entertainment. Clean, tons of personality! Comfortable. Lots of outdoor spaces for lounging. Quiet area. I will be back for a staycation!
Special home in a special place
Hemingway's Hideaway was the perfect place for us in Encinitas. The location was ideal for visiting our daughter and we could walk to three beaches with our grandchildren. The home was very welcoming and well equipped. We loved the outdoor spaces, especially the tub/shower. The neighborhood was quiet and very friendly. We are already looking forward to "hiding away" there again the next time we visit Encinitas, one of our favorite places.
Perfect vacation house
This vacation house was a perfect find for our group (3 adults & 3 small children). Plenty of indoor space and even more outdoor living space. Easy walk to the beach. Owner was always in contact with us & available to answer questions. Would definitely stay again.
Fantastic place to stay!
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
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.
Moonlight Beach renovation is now complete with a wider, deeper beach, great concession stand, boards and bikes to rent !!
Great beach community activities abound! large tot lot keeps little ones entertained!
