About the property: This makes for a great, romantic getaway. Located less than 1000 ft. away from beautiful Beacon's Beach, the condo allows for a spacious yet relaxing getaway.

Guests love the proximity to the beach and easy access to all of Leucadia's attractions. The condo is right above our spa and services are available for a discount for just being our guest here. With a gated parking area and your own parking spot, this makes a wonderful little getaway for a few days, or even a whole month. Enjoy the deck and sunshine in sunny California with close proximity to Legoland, the zoo, the Wild Animal Park and Balboa museums. Encinitas is a terrific family-oriented area which is safe and fun. We love living here and we're sure you'll love the area, too!

What makes Leucadia unique: We are so close to the beach and Leucadia is a blast. It is truly one of the last real beach towns left in California. Originally established by British pilgrims celebrating religious freedom, Leucadia offers an array of eclectic stores, mostly mom and pop type shops with little to no commercial stores. We don't even have a Starbucks in town if you can believe that. Leucadia has not changed much since the 1960's and the locals are very proud of their town. It is a great place to walk around and enjoy the restaurants, bars and shops, not to mention, the beaches. Within 500 ft. is pizza, Mexican food and subs. There's a lot more restaurants, however. Enjoy!

Children are welcome, but we do ask that your children are well-behaved while on the property as there is another vacation rental unit next door. We are all about having fun, but if you have kids who run around screaming at the top of their lungs this can ruin someone else's vacation.

                              We are located behind North Coast Highway 101 between Leucadia Blvd. and Europa St. The beach is located about 800 ft. away. Within 1000 ft. are also restaurants and shops. There is beach access at the top of the bluff, less than 1000 ft. from the condo.

                              Beacon's Beach access is at the top of the bluff, a 2-minute walk. One mile south is Moonlight Beach and downtown Encinitas. Leucadia is often described as an eclectic town with all mom and pop shops, not even a Starbucks here (but we do have the Pannikin), a really cool place to get coffee, tea and unique snacks. Also now open are Pandora's Pizza, Cafe Ipe and The Lofty Bean for organic coffee. Within walking distance are many art galleries and stores, antique shops, salons, spas and unique shops.

                              A short drive up the coastal 101 is Carlsbad, just north of that is Oceanside. Legoland is a 10-minute drive away and the airport is south about 20 miles.

                              Encinitas is a great family-oriented safe and friendly town with many local events such as the classic 'woody' car show, concerts at the beach and parades.
