Encinitas house description
Located on the south side of family friendly Moonlight Beach, this two story custom home was newly renovated in 2009 and features custom natural stone, hardwood decks and teakwood floors. The location provides stunning views of Moonlight Beach with it's volleyball courts, toddler playground, snack bar, bon-fire pits and lifeguard tower. It's an easy walk to the beach with kids and gear. The 'D' street beach access is one block to the south where the locals go to get away from the crowds. The famous Coast Highway is only three blocks east where you will find a variety of restaurants, bars and beach boutiques. The vintage La Paloma Theater is also 3 blocks away and is known for featuring intriguing, recently released movies. The coaster train station is just four blocks away, where you can take a ride to downtown San Diego and Petco Park.
This house has a magnificent roof top deck with a 360 degree view. The hot tub is perched on the edge of the roof top deck to take advantage of the ocean views and sunsets. The enclosed backyard is tropically landscaped and features a custom made fire pit with seating to enjoy the night sky.
The gourmet kitchen is located on the first floor off the front deck that looks towards Moonlight Beach. The dining table seats 10, the outdoor table seats 6 and the kitchen bar seats 4. The family room is adjacent to the kitchen and contains a huge couch that faces the wood burning fireplace and a 55' LG flat screen TV. The outdoor Bar B Q is just outside the door next to the kitchen. Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms are also located on the first floor, along with full size washer and dryer. The second floor contains the master bedroom with private bath, a sitting room and a family room with bar, where you can watch your favorite game on the 48' flat screen TV.
The house comes fully furnished with bedding, utensils dishes, etc - you just need to show up and start enjoying the beach along with Downtown Encinitas.

This place is total perfection. Location, accommodations, view, warmth. The owners of this home have thought of everything. And everything is top notch. Whole Foods is walkable for groceries. The beautiful outdoor grill is a dream as is the Chef’s gourmet kitchen; the outdoor shower is perfectly located to be private and convenient. The deck overlooks beautiful Moonlight Beach, which is lively during the day and perfectly peaceful at night and is gorgeous for margarita sunsets. The Eagles played in the background on the LCD TV next to the beautiful gas fireplace with limestone mantel on the chilly beach evenings, “You can check out but you may never leave….” We will be California dreaming until we are back again.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN AMAZING LOCATION!
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN AMAZING LOCATION!
I cannot say enough about our stay in this fabulous home! It was so well equipped and all first class-kitchen, bedrooms, beach chairs and toys, amazing tv's, stereo system and so much more! There are so many areas to hang out in this home. We loved the rooftop hot tub-amazing views and also really enjoyed having meals on the front patio. We loved walking to the many coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and shops. The owner is wonderful to work with-very responsive. Encinitas has so much to offer. We loved the low key feel of the area. Our family of 5-including 3 teenagers, is very particular when it come to staying in hotels and rentals. We don't like to slum it. We all said we'd love to return to this beautiful home.

Perfect Family Retreat
Perfect Family Retreat
To say this home is idyllic is an understatement. The location couldn't be beat, with full ocean views and Moonlight beach a half block away. The home has everything you could think to need and more. My stay with four adults, one tween, and two teenagers was so perfect that they are still talking about it and want to know when we are going back. Everything from surf lessons, movies, restaurants, and shopping is three short blocks away. The Gibney's are wonderful hosts and we all hope to be back soon. Thanks for a perfect retreat.
