This privately owned 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home is best described by the reviews of our guests over the years. It has everything you will need to enjoy your time at the beach. The home sits on the sand, slightly above the beach. The patio, family room, master bedroom and deck share panoramic views of the ocean south to La Jolla and north to Camp Pendleton. With an open lot to the south, the openness of the fully equipped kitchen and large family room provide panoramic views of the water while cooking, dining and relaxing. Lounge on the patio and enjoy watching the waves break or the frequent visits from jumping (and sometimes surfing) dolphins. The beach is known for its good surf, so enjoy boogie boarding and surfing on the boards that are provided. A private sand area on the patio is perfect for private sunbathing or keeping an eye on small children who can play in their own private sand area with the collection of sand toys provided. Next to the house are the horseshoe pits that can also double as a bocce ball court or bean bag toss using the equipment provided. Access to the beach is just off the south side of the house, walk out the sliding doors down the slope to the vacant lot and you are on the beach. The patio has an outdoor shower with hot and cold water, an extra large remote controlled awning for shade, and plenty of chaise lounges for sunning.
