                        This property was a spacious and affordable option for our blended family Thanksgiving vacation. The bedroom layout was great for people to all stay together without being on top of each other as the bedrooms were on all three floors. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to make and serve a traditional turkey dinner. Access to beach toys and boards was really a plus. While the house is does not have beach views, it was only a short walk to the two pools and the beach. This is not a luxury property, but for the price, it was perfect!

                        This property was very clean. It met our families needs very nicely. We enjoyed the extra beach chairs, boogie boards and beach towels. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen complete.Very close to good restaurants and grocery store. The town is small and we loved the little shops to shop in., It was quiet at night. There is no air conditioning. Marian is such a lovely and kind person to deal with. Thank you so much. We all thought it would be nice to come back again.

                        Owner response: We would love to have you come again! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope that you were able to use our new whole house fan on any warm days. When the windows are open, the fan has been very effective at cooling the home. There is a high and low switch and it is on a timer for up to 12 hours. You were great guests and we look forward to your next visit. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

                        We had a great time at this rental. It had all the amenities listed- plenty of towels, beach and pool toys, etc... The owner was very helpful prior to our stay and answered all our questions via email. Our kids loved the pools and the beach. We went to the Zoo, Safari Park, Sea World, and Lego Land and the proximity to I-5 made it easy to get around San Diego. We would definitely return for another stay!

                        We had a great stay. The beach was wonderful. Amazing evening sunsets. I enjoyed morning runs on the sand (the beach extends half a mile one direction and about three miles in the other direction). I even saw a baby sea lion on the beach and an adult sea lion in the water! My kids loved playing on the beach too (great sand for digging and castle-building and plenty of shells for collecting). The beach access was easy and convenient. I appreciated the shower heads at the top of the beach access stairs for washing off sand. The house was well-equipped for our kids. Port-a-crib, high chair, toys... were all great. The closet off the basement bedroom where my husband and i slept was big enough for the crib, which was nice for us since our baby does best in her own sleeping space. Kitchen was well equipped and totally functional. New double-pane windows were installed just prior to our stay. They look great and work well. I don't recall any road noise through them. The location was perfect for our family. Parking was easy. Our kids had a great time at the pool and playground. Besides the beach, we also visited old town, sea world (we highly recommend the seal show-- very entertaining for the adults and the kids), and a local strawberry field. We had a great time.

                        We could not have been more pleased with this rental property. Our Family had a great time and a truly memorable experience while staying in Encinitas at this Seabluff rental. The beach was perfect and getting to and from it each day provided us with a nice little aerobic activity. The rental was spacious and nicely decorated and offered enough space that we were not on top of each other. The owner< Marian, was especially pleasant to work with. We plan on making our visits to this rental a yearly occasion.

                        Wonderful, quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Neighbors were all friendly. We were afraid the water would be too cold, but with the warm weather, we got in some boogie boarding (equipment provided by owners). The home was lovely and the perfect vacation get-away. The property listing was accurate and the home was better than pictured. Marian was great to deal with, which made our vacation worry free. I would definately recommend this home to anyone, and actually already have not even a week after our vacation! During our week here, we were able to take in Disneyland, SeaWorld, and deep sea fishing, plus 2 beach only days!

                        I greatly appreciated that this property was exactly as advertised, spacious, clean and well furnished, conveniently located and just a short walk from the beach. I was part of golf foursome that rented this 5bdrm/2bth unit for five nights. It was great to have our own bedrooms. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances and utensils to prepare a sumptuous meal, if you so desire. There is also a BBQ grill on the terrace and a dining table off the kitchen with bench seating for 6+ people. The living room area contains a large leather couch and matching chair, providing a great space to relax and watch TV or a movie. The parking garage is also a nice feature, since the parking spaces were all utilized on a couple of occasions. Most gratifying was my interaction with the owner, Marian Taylor. She was extremely helpful and responsive during the booking process, which can be somewhat stressful when you are dealing with strangers. It was a pleasure working with her and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit again. P.S. Go to Fish 101 for great seafood at reasonable prices!

                        Our family had a great time! Easy access to the beach was a huge hit with our teenagers and kids; not to mention the proximity to So Cal theme parks (25 mins to Sea World/Zoo/Safari and about 50 minutes to la). The home felt cozy and spacious. Our party of 6 adults, 4 teen/pre-teen plus two younger kids fit comfortably and felt there was room to spare. The owner, Marian, is great to work with and we had no problems with any of the contracts and arrangements. Marian responded quickly to our emails and was also available by phone. Once we arrived, the only hiccup was that we were not able to connect with the Property manager, Annette, other than by phone/text during our stay. The property and grounds are well taken care of. The guard at the gate was also very friendly and helpful.

                        We had such a perfect spring break at your beautiful townhome. The home was clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. We were pleasantly surprised by the dining table that could seat 10 and we enjoyed barbequeing several evenings. We loved our short stroll, among the gardens, to the pool and to the beach. Our teenager, pre-teen and young daughter loved the sand and surf! I felt very safe in this lovely Seabluff community and I was glad to have ample parking, when we were not touring nearby southern California sights. I hope we can visit your home again soon!

                        Hi Marian, Thank you for the return of our deposit and your kind note. We had a wonderful time at your home. We really love Encinitas and the small beach towns surrounding it. Your house was centrally located, so everyday we were able to see the sights in the morning, including the Surf Museum, Cabrillo National Monument, Balboa Park, and the missions. We prefer the simple things in life, so our best day may have been when we spent time at the Cardiff By The Sea library followed by lunch at Pipes Café. And, because of the beach access of your neighborhood, we spent every afternoon on the beach. My oldest son, who is 10, learned to skim board and surf. I took surfing lessons with him at San Elijo State Beach, but I have a longer way to go! Something about an old dog and new tricks seems especially apt. I did enjoy waking early each morning and bringing my cup of coffee to the benches overlooking the beach. Perhaps I must come to grips with that activity being more my speed anymore! All the people we encountered along the way were exceptionally nice – the security guards, your neighbors, the people at Ralph’s, etc. Our trip started with a beautiful Easter mass at St. John’s Catholic Church, which set the tone for our glorious week! Thanks again, Peter M

                      About the owner: Our family loves the beach and the sunshine. We have ventured to southern California every year to adventure on the beach, in the water, at the parks and in the outdoors at all times of year. We hope you will enjoy San Diego's north county as much as we do!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Encinitas:
                      We lived in San Diego when we were first married and fell in love with the area! The north county is close to everything from Disneyland to Mexico.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                      The beach, tennis, pools and lawns and gardens for picnicing and playtime surround us in our Encinitas community! Restaurants, shopping and southern California vacation destinations are all nearby!
