Best Christmas Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I flew in from IL to visit my son and his wife who live in an apartment in Encinitas. My daughter and her husband joined us at this perfect cottage for us! We spent a wonderful Christmas there with my entire family. My son and daughter in law cooked us dinner in Roberta's perfect open bright kitchen and dining area. The beds were to die for! All our comfort needs available. We biked, got some surfing in and took in local sites. The only down side is we did not need anything and only got to speak to Roberta once and I missed the opportunity in person to tell her what a find this was for us. Faithful IA (Roberta's dog) was always available for a warm welcome while we were able to pick lemon/limes in Roberta's yard fresh off the tree! Perfect spot for walking a short distance to see awesome sunsets. Highly recommend renting and the owner is very available prior when setting up days, etc. Thank you!

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible week. The cottage is beautifully maintained, and the kitchen in particular was more than I expected, a state-of-the-art gas range and cabinets fully equipped with pots and pans, and even a wok--I cooked every meal. Loved the comfortable bed and the beautiful stained-glass window which floods the kitchen with light every afternoon. I didn't have a car and I never missed it: the train station is an easy walk away and a comfortable ride to all that San Diego has to offer. Grocery stores, great restaurants and bars, bike/surf rentals, and most importantly, the beach, are all within half a mile--the overlook to watch the sunset while the surfers do their thing is just 5-minute walk. Beach was always quiet and peaceful, as was the neighborhood itself. Roberta herself is a very gracious hostess, and IA, her sweet dog, is a great ambassador, too--whenever I was on the deck he would always come up to the fence to see how I was doing.

This was the perfect retreat. I only hope I can come back next year.

Loved It!

  • 4 of 5

This was perfect! It was more than we hoped for! We brought the kids to do all the major attractions and it was perfectly situated not too far from downtown or the zoo safari park. A great neighborhood so we could let the teenagers roam on their own, good proximity to the beach and the seaside shopping and dining strip. The cottage is adorable and very comfortable with a great kitchen and beautiful grounds.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you liked the cottage and our Encinitas village. This authentic beach town experience is fun for visitors of all ages and, as you said, we are close to many points of interest. In a hectic world the Encinitas village is a gem for everyone. Thank you for choosing to stay at the Namaste Retreat. You are always welcome to return.

Great place in great location

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed twice in this residency for about a month with my husband, coming from France for vacation. For the price we loved the place. The house is spacious, clean with all the facilities. The flowered patio gives a very nice private access to outside. It is most of the time sunny as it has a great exposure ! The location is perfect, it is walkable distance from everything in Encinitas : beach, restaurants, groceries, and I loved specially the organic "whole food" supermarket. You won't need a car for anything. The owner is a friendly lady who will make your stay comfortable and easy, so you will for sure enjoy your trip.
