We have supplied beach chairs, beach towels, sun umbrella, boogie boards & sand toys so you can stroll one block away to Moonlight Beach to enjoy the playground, swimming/surfing, new snack bar and picnic area with fire pits. (Moonlight Beach has undergone a $4.8 million dollar facelift which was completed June 2013. New concession stand, beach rentals, playground, restrooms & showers.) Two blocks away is Coast Highway 101 with a multitude of gourmet restaurants/cafes, shopping, La Paloma movie theatre, yoga studios and day spas. With nearly perfect year-round temperatures the outdoors is what locals and vacationers alike relish. Ride bikes, swim, stroll the beach, play volleyball or read a book in the warm sand. For the kids, Legoland is 10 minute drive. San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Petco Park (Home of the Padres) & downtown is a 25 minute drive. Plan a day trip to Disneyland (1 hr drive) or just stay local and enjoy this lovely beach town. The new Crossroads Golf Course or Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is just a few minutes away. The secret charm of this sleepy little beach town is out! Encinitas was voted one of the 'Worlds Best Surf Towns' by National Geographic in 2012. The magazine’s criteria included “consistent waves, inviting accommodations, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat.” Moonlight Beach was voted 'Best Beach for Families in San Diego' (SD Union Tribune 4/13). There is truly something for everyone to enjoy. Located with great Interstate 5 freeway and Coaster train access for trips up to Oceanside and points north, or south to the Cedros Design District of Solana Beach and on to beautiful Del Mar (racetrack), La Jolla (Scripps Aquarium) and downtown. San Diego (1/2 hr. drive) offers the Gaslamp quarter, Seaport Village, Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres), Coronado Island, Balboa Park, Seaworld, World Famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park and so much more. Laid back Southern California beach living at its best!

There is nothing better than feeling 'at home' when vacationing and that is what we aim to provide for our guests. We live locally and this is our private residence in which we spend part of the year enjoying the beach and downtown. We make sure the house is super clean, well stocked and comfortable just as you would like it.

Why Encinitas: North County San Diego is truly a special place to be. We love to spend time walking on the sand, surfing, playing in the waves & strolling the 101 with its great restaurants & shops.
