About the owner: Welcome to 'Paris on the Beach.' I'm Loretta Marie and I'm so happy you found me on VRBO. Ever since I was a small child growing up in Southern California amongst a wonderful, large family, I always loved going to the beach. Unfortunately many of those beaches were the flat, heavily populated type like Santa Monica in L.A. and Huntington and Newport Beach in Orange County.
But the flat, crowded beaches of LA and Orange County would become a thing of the past as I came to discover Encinitas with my older brothers during a small surfing trip.
When we first drove up the hill on Old Highway 101 near La Costa Ave., I immediately fell in love as we entered the Encinitas coastal area and so I knew right then... that I would some day live in this beautiful town.
Encinitas felt like 'Hometown USA on the Beach with towering eucaliptus trees, unique shops and reataurants, and with a laid back, Hawian, North Shore kind of feel. The beaches were amazingly beautiful with large bluffs, two large lagoons, and of course it boasted incredible waves. I knew right then and there that someday soon, I would return to live here.
So a few years later, I came back to start my college years in north coastal San Diego and have stayed here in the Encinitas area ever since; enjoying all the water activities, restaurants, and it's terrific, small town beach atmoshphere.
Why the Owner Chose Encinitas: I chose to purchase this wonderful duplex property because it was located only 5 houses to Stone Steps Beach and near the ever popular, Moonlight Beach. It was the most charming beach home I had ever seen with each home having it's own unique style and amazing outdoor living spaces that make beach living so wonderful.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When I first entered the property, I was taken by the amazing yard that was virtually hidden from the street. The secured entrance gate and fenced in yard allowed tremendous privacy and a tranquil setting that made me immediately feel like I was on a relaxing vacation. The large, beautiful coral tree, grass, and charming alcove patio area made me never want to leave. I became even more surprised when I realized the property had another completely separate home with another private yard that was equally impressive and each with it's own unique style that felt like home in each their own way. I immediately put in an offer and ultimately became a homeowner for the first time making my beach front living dream come true. To this day, it is my favorite place to be and is where I spent the rest of my years with my husband while raising our three beautiful children. Recently, we made both homes of the duplex vacation rentals (VRBO # 479554 & 480169) so that they could be enjoyed throughout the year by family and friends as we began to travel and do home exchanges with friends in Europe. Recently, I came to realize that this wonderful beach property should be shared with even more wonderful folks who could also use a well desrved vacation at the beach. I felt it was implortant to provide all our favorite games and beach equipment so that travelers and friends would only need to pack their clothes and a bathing suit.
Although my family has traveled to many far away places throughout the world including the incredible sites in the streets of Paris, France, our favorite place has always been right here in Encinitas at our very own, 'Paris on the Beach.'
I can not tell you how happy it makes me feel to share this wonderful home with you, my next guest, at the beautiful, 'Paris on the Beach.' Enjoy...
