About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This is a great retreat from your everyday life. Read a book in the sun, play games with your family, or take a walk on the beach at this quiet haven. We have provided Wifi internet access, a flat screen TV with satellite programing as well as a DVD player. Enjoy our gourmet kitchen, or eat out at one of the area's wide variety of restaurants. Encinitas offers beautiful beaches, an old time downtown area full of shops and restaurants, as well as great proximity to San Diego's many attractions.

This 925 square foot duplex is just the right amount of space for a family or small group to enjoy. The first bedroom has a Queen bed, the second one has Two Twin beds, and there is comfortable couch. Organic cotton sheets are provided for all the beds. We have furnished this beach house in a comfortable style, and decorated with artwork by ourselves and our talented friends.

In the kitchen, you will enjoy cooking on our new professional gas range, and drinking out of our handmade ceramic cups and hand blown glass tumblers. The kitchen is stocked with everything from a coffee maker to an ice cream maker. Plan to visit the Sunday Farmers Market a few blocks away to pick up some fresh local produce and fish, or shop at any of the nearby markets.

Please contact us with any questions, we would love to share our retreat with you!

About The Owner

We are a beach-loving family living nearby in Orange County. Bill and Carol met in graduate school, pursuing art degrees. Now Bill teaches ceramics and 3D design at a local college, Carol has followed a path to applied arts, and together they have created Amelia, a budding artist herself.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Encinitas

We love the laid back feeling of Encinitas/Leucadia. The beach is uncrowded, the people are friendly, and it's a short drive to many local attractions.

What makes this condo unique

This property is close enough for us to walk to the beach, to town, and even to the meditation garden. We love coming to the beach to relax together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Retreat

This property, like its owners, is thoughtfully, casually, excellent. I enjoyed my stay here enormously. Beacon's Beach is a wonderful beach.

Great location, clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. It was close to everything and made things very easy. We have 2 kids ages 8 and 9 and it worked out perfect. The place was quiet and clean and well equipped in the kitchen. The queen bed mattress was way too soft and was quite uncomfortable for us as we like firmer mattresses. The description said it came with 2 adult bikes and one kids bike but there was only the kids bike. The beach stuff and various wet suit sizes were awesome for our family and made beaching it easy. Awesome beaches, shopping and restaurants all close by.

Cute clean beach house

  • 4 of 5

Super cute house, it was in a great location. Loved that they had toys for the kids along with books and games. The heater made me uneasy because of the kids it got really hot. But overall it was a great place. I would definitely stay again

Grandchildren visit

  • 5 of 5

Hermes was a great place for us to stay for a prolonged visit. We were quite comfortable the entire time. Since we were there to visit family, there was plenty of room to have them for dinner; and, with the great kitchen, there was plenty of room to prepare and clean up. My granddaughter loved playing all the games that were available. We hope to come back next winter for another extended stay.
