About Lisa Doliva
We have the travel bug! Traveling or sailing is where you'll most likely find us if you can't find us tending to our garden. We love the idea of sharing our cottage and Encinitas with fellow travelers.
Lisa Doliva purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Lisa Doliva chose Encinitas
We moved in and remodeled the entire cottage and grounds. It was a labor of love and we were able to transform it into a showcase property. When we were asked to be on the Encinitas Garden Tour this year, it was a proud moment!
What makes this Cottage unique
The Encinitas Highland is one of the area's most sought after neighborhoods, as well as one of the oldest in Coastal North San Diego County. It's close to beaches, great restaurants, and shopping, but still in a quite family neighborhood setting.

Perfect vacation home in SoCal
This cottage was the perfect place to spend a vacation in the beach town of Encinitas. The home is so beautiful, the backyard was so inviting, We stayed home many of the nights we were there and ate dinner on the patio. Upon arrival, we found blueberries, pancake mix with directions, creamer for the provided coffee, a coffee maker and a Keurig, a bottle of wine and a feeling of being welcomed. The owner texted us and was always available which made it pretty easy to sit back and relax, knowing they were present for troubleshooting (we had no need for this however!). The master has a king tempurpedic bed, closet with plenty of hangers, and dresser with drawers, the house was spotless. The laundry room was accessed outside and a perfect place to store our golf clubs and bikes that we brought with us. The kitchen has absolutely everything you might need, the dishes, silverware, pots, pans and appliances were perfect! The neighborhood was so nice, people walking their dogs, everyone was friendly, we never felt we had to lock the doors, although we did, the area was great. We were a stones throw to grocery stores, the biking from here was great for us, the ocean was 4 -5 blocks away. The wonderful thing about this cottage was that it is quite small but has such ideal use of space, the bathroom was small but the shower was large and the doors and shower heads etc were all top of the line. The kitchen was so efficient, the towels and sheets, very nice, the TV was awesome, the sectional couch just perfect, it really was well thought out. The garden was beautiful and our pups really enjoyed the cross breeze from the back door to the front door which was a dutch door (the top of the front door opens) and there were large windows with screens, ceiling fans in every room, very comfortable. We will definitely return to the Jasmine Cottage and we have already referred many of our friends. This is a 'gem' in the world of vrbo and airbnb. There is a cottage in back in a separate yard with a gate between where their daughter lives and we never heard her. In fact, I ran outside to say hello to her when she was getting into her car on the street, and she just offered to help with anything we might need. Thank you Lisa and Mark!
Our family of 4 enjoyed this beautiful cottage! A peaceful yard, well stocked kitchen, and comfortable rooms made us feel welcome and made for a hassle free vacation. Small things matter: beach gear and towels, great toiletries, cozy throw blankets, and fresh blueberries and pancake mix for a nice simple breakfast before a busy day. We had no issues here and felt like if we did we could easily reach the owner for help. Thanks for offering this property for others to enjoy!
Great location and beautiful property!
Loved our trip. The accommodations were excellent. Comfortable, conveniently located and beautiful. The homeowners are very generous with the “extras” like beach gear. We look forward to renting this property again in the future
This is such a wonderful, magical property. The pictures don't lie, the home and grounds look just like them. We had such a relaxing time enjoying the garden, fountain, and deck. It is close to everything; beaches, restaurants and shopping. Our hosts were very responsive to our questions and we appreciated knowing that they were there if we needed them.Look forward to coming back and staying again.
We LOVED our recent stay at the Jasmine cottage!!!
Wow - what a wonderful vacation at the Jasmine cottage!! We picked the cottage because of the beautiful backyard flowers and decor...and we were not disappointed!! It was so wonderful sipping our morning lattes on the chaise lounges, admiring the beautiful flowers and gardens while watching the birds play in the back yard. In the evenings, it was great having family backyard BBQs and then continuing the conversations around the fire pit.
We simply LOVED the Jasmine cottage and can't wait to return!!
