Located in north coastal San Diego County, Encinitas is part of one of the most desirable places in the world. Residents also enjoy astonishing natural beauty and scenery that is second to none. Just 25 miles north of San Diego and 95 miles south of Los Angeles, Encinitas is a seaside city covering six miles along coastal highway 101. The area was named Encina Canada by the Spanish Governor of Baja California in 1669 – a name meaning “hills of live oaks” in Spanish. Its name held even after California became a part of the United States in 1850. Known by many locals as one of the state’s last remaining unspoiled beach towns, Ocean front Encinitas has its share of beaches – 11 to be exact. The city is also home to the now world-famous Hansen surfboard company. The town retains a strong beach culture.

Events and weddings are not appropriate at residential vacation rental properties


The City of Encinitas , California is located along six miles of Pacific coastline in northern San Diego County, Encinitas has a population of 60,000 and is characterized by coastal beaches, cliffs, flat-topped coastal areas, steep mesa bluffs and rolling hills. Our city was incorporated in 1986, the 3 communities of New Encinitas, Old Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Olivenhain and Leucadia.

Golf enthusiasts will enjoy our new Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, a championship 18 hole par 72 course- panoramic ocean views. This public facility has five tees available, can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.

The beaches in Encinitas are outstanding. There are many stretches of beach that lie between Cardiff-by-the-Sea and La Costa. The surfing is unbeatable and many surf contests are held throughout the year.


The Encinitas Visitor's Center, located at 138 Encinitas Blvd., within the Chamber of Commerce\'s offices, is an informational site promoting Encinitas. The center directs visitors to local landmarks, restaurants, lodging and provides information on area demographics. Maps, publications, brochures, and souvenirs are available, as well as discounted tickets to Legoland, Wild Animal Park, and the San Diego Zoo.

The natural beauty of our communities, along with temperatures averaging 72 degrees year-round, fluctuating between 40 and 85 degrees, make Encinitas a spectacular place to live.
Downtown 101 is a coastal shopping district over 100 years old featuring historic architecture, quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants framed by beautiful flower baskets. The organization Downtown Encinitas Merchants Association (DEMA) is a great resource for information on business in Encinitas.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Architectural designer and business owner, singer-songwriter and juice chef - the owners of this vacation rental purchased it as a second home, restored it and used to rent the entire property to parties of up to 14 guests until permanently relocating to the main house of this Hacienda two years ago. Since then we offer the casita of our property to Homeaway guests. We want you to enjoy your magical stay at an historical property, which we lovingly restored, in a fantastic town on the beach of Southern California.

Why Leucadia:
We fell in love with Leucadia as a beach town and potential place to retire - and we just couldn't wait that long, we loved it so much. The community of Encinitas and Leucadia in particular is so full of great spirit, from all the interesting inhabitants and visitors, and their mutual wonder and respect at our wonderful surroundings and mild, sunny climate. Casa Leucadia is like a storybook cottage with so many special details, it is truly a world of its own within its fence and towering palms, .

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Tropical plants, towering palms, abundant bird life, butterflies, right outside your window and outdoor courtyard. An arch of old fashioned pink roses greets your entrance to the casita, along with a giant nopale cactus. Schmitty the resident cat (owners") may say hello and nap outside your window on the antique painted Mexican lounger. Winding brick pathways are illuminated nightly with designer lighting.
