Encinitas apartment description

This luxury 2 bedroom/1 bath guest unit is located steps from Moonlight Beach and in the heart of Encinitas. Attached to a multimillion dollar home: this compact unit is on the second floor, is charming, well decorated, very comfortable, and has its own private entry. It is both private, with an orientation away from the main house, and in the midst of the active 'beach life'. Relax on the deck with spectacular views of Moonlight Beach and the ocean. There are beautiful granite counter tops, new appliances, stone and marble walk-in shower, full sized washer and dryer, three flat screen TVs and quality furnishings and linens. The living area contains a full size pull-out sofa bed. Deck includes a bar height table and chairs for dining, deck chairs for the morning coffee, a barbeque and is ideal for people-watching and enjoying the sunset. Private parking for two cars eliminates the hunt for parking at the beach.

Moonlight Beach is one of the most popular beaches in California and Encinitas has been named one of the 'World's 20 Best Surf Towns' by National Geographic. Moonlight Beach is very family friendly and with the recent renovation has new bathroom facilities and concessions. This guest unit is so close to the beach that if you forget anything or want to change clothes, you are just a couple of minutes from your vacation home.

Being on the south end of Moonlight Beach it is also ideally located only three to four blocks to the downtown shops, restaurants and the Coaster train service. Walking to and from a nice restaurant in the evening is a treat.

If you are looking for a comfortable place to relax and to spend time enjoying the weather, ocean and amenities of beautiful Encinitas then this is your spot. All amenities needed for your stay are included. Spend the day at the beach then enjoy the views from the deck while firing up the BBQ!

                  Must see in Encinitas is the San Diego Botanical Gardens (year-round). In nearby Carlsbad: the Carlsbad Flower Fields (spring-time) and Legoland. In San Diego: the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and Sea World. There are many other attractions- too many to list.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: Encinitas is my hometown and I grew up in the home directly north of this property. My parents built their home on one lot and their patio on the other. They also planted the Star Pine tree in front of their home that has become an Encinitas landmark and is decorated every year. We built this home on the 'patio' lot in 1986 and raised our children here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Encinitas:
                  In 2012 we decided to renovate the guest unit to create a spot for the family to use for vacations. We redesigned the unit, put in quality materials and furnishings so that it would be a comfortable and fun environment for a beach stay for our family. It brings back fond memories to all who stay here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The best benefit is the location - a combination of view and how close it is to the beach and the downtown area. Although compact in size it has been thoughtfully re-designed and renovated to make the best use of space.
