Breathtaking views from livingroom, diningroom. kitchen and master! Charming Leucadia Beach Town is eclectic - the perfect place to totally relax and unwind. Walk to tons of great restaurants, cafes, bars, coffee shops, galleries and surf shops.

Our gorgeous home is cliffside overlooking the ocean with private beach access - yes steps ON OUR PROPERTY to the sand - a RARE find! It's a very family friendly house and perfect for the eager young surfers.

This house is a real treasure. It's colorfully decorated with high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights create an open, light and cheery atmosphere. The living area is downstairs with flatscreen TV, DVD and wood burning fireplace. There's also a beautiful long wooden dining table overlooking the ocean that easily seats 10-12 guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances and everything you could possibly need! There's an ice maker, waffle maker, popcorn maker, coffee pot, grinders, blenders, toaster, electric kettle, etc...

UPSTAIRS master bedroom is a grand and enormous room with plush down king bed, cozy sitting area, desk, glass card table, TV/DVD and shower with an ocean view! There are two huge private decks off the master suite for the ultimate in relaxation and seclusion. The other two upstairs bedrooms also have vaulted ceilings with 2 twin beds (comfy new pillowtop mattresses) in each room, and shared bathroom between. These are light bright rooms with skylights, french doors and decks.

DOWNSTAIRS is a second master with king duvet bed and attached bath with outside access. Across the hall is a cozy cheerful bedroom with 2 new twin beds and french doors leading to the secluded lanai patio pictured.

Enjoy the glorious Southern California sunshine on one of the many decks or patios! There are also a number of outside dining areas so you can really enjoy dining under the stars to the sound of crashing waves!

It's mezmerizing just hanging out on the patio and watching the surfers. But if you want some exercise, go for a run on the sand, grab a board or go kayaking. You could also challenge the family to bocceball, horsehoes or a number of other games. The house is stocked with 4 beach cruiser bikes (and helmets), countless wetsuits, boogie boards, surfboards, board games, kayak, bocceball game, firepit - it is definitely ready for family fun. Our favorite feature is the HOT outside shower which feels awesome after playing in the waves.

For the active guests, there's an endless list of possibilities and we are more than happy to assist. Our favorite restaurant is only a 5 minute walk - and we have loads of recommendations to help make your stay as wonderful as possible!

              Year Purchased: 1978

              About the owner: My name is Hank Johns. This is my family's beach home. My Dad, Sister and our families enjoy it whenever possible. We know you will too!

              Why the Owner Chose Encinitas:
              It's an amazing location in my favorite part of San Diego. It is 45 mins from downtown San Diego and 45 mins from Orange County. Legoland and all the surrounding attractions are only 10 minutes away. San Diego in general has so much to offer visitors and I think we are fairly well-versed in them all, so please ask!
