a pleasant cottage
nice owner ;nice place; nice stay .
Cozy and in a perfect location
The best thing about Nameste Retreat is the location, you can walk both to the main downtown of Encinitas including great restaurants and SRF for meditation, services and gardens. One block from Ocean enables you to watch the sunset every night. The outdoor patio is wonderful, plus you can walk around Roberta's meditation garden. Some of the furniture, like kitchen chairs could be updated for those with posture issues, but it was cozy enough for us. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms is nice.
roberta franks property
small good heat very clean not the best of beds
Really glad you liked the cottage. I wish you had discussed the bed with me. Not sure what you mean as I haven’t heard this before and I don’t know which bedroom you are referring to. I always appreciate feedback so I can address needed items. I will check the beds. Hope you had a good trip home.
Close to Ocean, Shops and Restaurants
The first thing we noticed was how clean the home was kept. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location is fantastic; within walking distance to the ocean, shops and restaurants. The hospitality was very warm and friendly. We would highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a relaxed local Downtown Encinitas experience.
It was wonderful having you as a guest. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage. Welcome back if you return to Encinitas in the future.
Best Christmas Ever!
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!
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.
