Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I am a native So Cal girl who loves the beach. I started my VRBO 2 years ago. I love doing what I am doing and sharing this beautiful space with the many vacationers i have been so fortunate to have met. Check out this fun UTUBE song/video about Encinitas:

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas:
I bought this home because of my love of the ocean. Swimming during the summer is one of the highlights of Moonlight Beach. The water sometimes gets as warm as 75 and hovers most of the time around 68 in the summer. Being able to just walk down for a quick one is just heaven. I added Casa de Moonlight in 2009 because I wanted to share this lovely spot with others who love the beach!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property is like a tree house in that it is surrounded by windows allowing visitors to enjoy sunrises AND sunsets. The Farmers Market is on Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm with fresh fish, veggies, tamales, flowers and lots of crafts. WholeFoods market is coming to town really soon, but the exact date is yet to be announced. If you are a surfer, some of the best surf spots in the world are just down the street, and walk to town for dinner, can't get much better. Location, Location, Location...
