The 'Hideaway' is a seperate unit, a backyard 'granny-flat' that's about 750sq. feet -living space. You have two seperate bedrooms, a kitchenette/living area plus bathroom. Freshly remodeled, this 'beach close' charmer looks out upon a secluded garden and lawn with badminton and loads of flowers. Eclectic is the feeling. Attention to 'creature comforts' and simplicity was the intention when renovating[Italian and Mexican tile accents, hardwood floors...] . An ajoining [but completely private] second bedroom is generously sized and includes a double bed. The kitchenette and living area overlooks the lawn and garden area.. . NO SMOKING in house or on the grounds. We see the situation as most attractive to couples, or couples with children, looking for a peaceful setting within a short walk to our little beach town and our great beaches- a sample of Southern California beach living.
We are located in one of north San Diego County's oldest neighborhoods, the Highlands of Encinitas. A 10 to 15 min. walk and you will find yourself in the quaint seaside town. Ethnic dining is big; great Italian, Peruvain, Thai etc., etc.- Encinitas seems to be on the cutting edge of the 'conscious life-style' movement so health minded options abound. While the beach and ocean remain the main attractions, our town is 'coming of age' you might say and it's all just a short walk away.
Return to the tranquility of your secluded and cozy garden cottage. If it feels like a fit, drop in and give us a try, maybe you'll become a regular.
spacious backyard opens up from your cottage and patio area[where outside cooking area is], fountains and lots of plants and flowers, peaceful setting and feeling. there is badminton set up in the yard-room for fun and games....moreless

About the owner: Your hosts Carol and Tony Hyde have resided in the local community since the early seventies. Carol, a nurse and psychotherapist, is an avid ocean kayaker and hiking enthusiast. Tony has worked in the surfing industry and in property development, but his passion and main focus is riding waves. He is happy to share his local knowledge with those who ask, as is Carol.
Why the Owner Chose Encinitas: We both were drawn to Encinitas for the same reason- its' laid back Southern California charm. Through the years we have enjoyed sharing the many attributes of our location with our friends and family and have recently decided we would like to expand that pool to include guests through VRBO.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Primarily we offer a quiet space for our guests that is within comfortable walking distance from the beach and town. We enjoy maintaining our cottages' gardenlike setting and look forward to offering a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere to those who are drawn to come.
