Overview

Encinitas Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this clean and comfortable property! It is near enough to walk to the beach and restaurants. It was hot and humid during our stay but there were three fans we used to help keep it a little more comfortable.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience here. We stayed long enough that we called it home for the week. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach were perfect for us as we wanted to surf as much as possible. We enjoyed having the garage to store our surfboards and even used a chair. Having the extra surfboard in the garage was a huge plus as well. We'll be back

Fantastic Family Friendly Rental in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Encinitas before this trip, so didn't know the area well. We chose this rental because it was a lot of space for a reasonable rate. Man we were thrilled to find out that this rental was more than a good deal! it:

1) is super close to Beacon's Beach which was our favourite of all the beaches we went to in California

2) had wetsuits, boogie boards, surfboards, sand toys, bikes, scooters ANYTHING we could think of that we might want while on vacation - it had a wetsuit in every size we needed!

3) was really, really clean

4) had a well-stocked kitchen with every implement and appliance we needed for our stay

5) was run by an extremely sweet host - we forgot our laptop charger there and had it back right away with no complaints - she fedexed it to our next stay right away!

The kids loved this place, and so did us adults. We would definitely stay there again, and don't hesitate to recommend it as a perfect vacation get away for families or other large parties - it easy really nice and big and well laid out.

Thanks again!

Wonderful location for families with young kids

  • 4 of 5

My husband, young son, and I stayed here during spring break and had a wonderful time. We loved how the vacation home is in a quiet neighborhood but yet so close to Beacons Beach, Cottonwood Creek Park, great coffee shops, and decent selection of restaurants. Legoland is just 10 minutes away. We also explored the tide pools at Seaside Beach, which is also 10 minutes away. With so many activities near by, this is a very convenient location for families with young kids.

The house was clean and well maintained. The owner responded promptly to all my emails. When we first arrived at the house, I was a little worried about the train noise since I am a light sleeper, but I was never woken up once by the trains during our stay. The beds were comfortable enough, but the queen bed was too soft for my husband, as he is prone to back pain. Overall, I highly recommend this vacation home.
