"We recently returned from a 3 week sojourn in Southern California having stayed in this lovely house. There were 6 adults - all of us feeling that we had enough space to spread out in this well equipped home. The house is very well appointed and well looked after. The art work is varied and lovely. The kitchen has all the utensils and equipment that you would want and more. The master bedroom is very spacious and well laid out. The heating ( which was unfortunately used), the garage space, the barbeque (potent!), the large appliances, the laundry facilities, linen/towels, seating areas, storage areas... in fact everything in this house has been chosen and thought out to a "T".
Despite the many rules and regulations to read through in their house manual it's mere existence is testament to the reason that the place is in such good condition and you truly have the feeling of being a guest in someone's house than being in a rental unit.
It is perfectly situated near the beach, the coastal train, the I-5, and shopping.
Although the weather did not allow for much swimming, the inviting hot tub/jacuzzi in the community spa area was frequented by our gang daily. Great relaxation! This gated community is friendly and gives off a safe vibe.
The owners were extremely informative, communicative in a timely fashion, thoughtful, and pleasant.
We look forward to returning to this home in the future - especially after returning home to -30C temperatures in northern Canada........
Thanks so much for sharing your home!"

"This house is spectacular! The backyard pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen & firepit made our stay a delight! The owner was super flexible & knowlegeable on things located near by (stores, sites to see, shopping, dining, etc.) I Would highly recommend this gorgeous oasis! The view every morning from the master suite was incredible!!! The kitchen has everything for large groups & all you need for entertaining! We had a fabulous time & would rent again if ever on the West Coast again!"

"We stayed for five nights with an extended family of 7, and two small children (ages 2, 3) and it was wonderful. Not only is the location EXACTLY on the beach, the accommodations were child friendly and very comfortable. There is a short walk to the pier and a playground on the beach, and minutes away from downtown Oceanside, with lots of restaurants, shops and bars. (Something for everyone.) The dual units (upstairs and downstairs) are perfect for allowing some retreat from the group, and having a separate/together option at all times. Colleen is extremely flexible and professional to work with."

"Every detail has been thought of at Hagan's Hideaway! The way the space is laid out, furnished and appointed is perfect. There are lots of hooks (which seem to be highly undervalued at just about every accommodation I've ever stayed in!), the kitchen had everything I needed, and there is a spacious closet in the bathroom with shelves (which also fits a suitcase). Its fresh, clean, and luxurious, and the hosts are great. This was probably the first time I walked into a vacation rental that was truly as nice as it looked in the pictures online. The outside space is wonderful, as well. Encinitas is a great place to enjoy everything southern California has to offer and I highly recommend this property."
