  • comfortable, nicely furnished, very clean and excellent location

    "This is the second occasion we have spent a month at this condo. It is in a good location and a short drive to Mission Beach, downtown and Old Town and the Zoo. If you haven't got a car ỳou can use the trolley and excellent bus service from Fashion Valley shopping mall which is ten minutes walk away. The condo itself is spacious and has everything you need for your vacation."

  • Best choice for SoCal vacation

    "We were a family of two adults and two children, vacationing in Encinitas for 5 weeks. The condo fully lived up to our expectations. Upon arrival it was clean and tidy. It had everything you needed for a short or long stay, from BBQ, beach towels, boogie boards, sun chairs, to board games and books. The condo complex share a pool, and this was well kept and clean. Located within 5 minutes walking from Moonlight State Beach this is the perfect location. 'Downtown' Encinitas is just 3-4 minutes walk away, with all the stores you need. We found it very convenient to be able to walk to the local grocery store (Whole Food). The local library is located across the street. We used the library for home schooling for our kids. Right behind the condo comple is a small park, with a playground and a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. Halfway towards Moonlight Beach there is a larger playground. On our first day the caretaker dropped by to introduce himself. He was available anytime, which was proven when the garbage disposal in the sink broke. This was taken care of immediately and promptly fixed. The same when the garage door decided not to open anymore, fixed at once. The train station is 3 minutes away with schedules south to San Diego or north to LA. The only 'drawback' with the location is the blowing of the horns by the traindrivers as the trains pass. We were aware of this prior to renting, but was still surprised at how hard and long they actually blow the horns. So take this into considation when renting. That being said, we would not have any problems renting this condo again. Encinitas is very close to Legoland, the Safari Park, San Diego Zoo, Carlsbad Outlets, Miramar Air Station, and miles and miles of beaches for surfing, swimming, exploring or just relaxing. There are several restaurants in Encinitas, as well as coffee bars, and a movie theatre. Every Wednesday there is a Farmers' Market at the train station, and here you can get your hands on excellent food. Hopefully we will be back, and able to rent this condo, in the future."

  • Beautiful La Jolla home in great location

    "We have nothing but great things to say about Marc's beautiful home. First of all, the view of the ocean was awesome -- you can see it from the front patio, inside the living room and dining area, and from the middle patio. The house itself is very open -- my wife and I stayed in the master bedroom and literally kept the french doors open all night, and could hear the ocean waves. The middle and rear patios are like a little private oasis, well-landscaped with flowering vines. It was great to come back from the beach and use the outdoor heated shower. Great kitchen (fully stocked -- we prepared 3 dinners there) and nice bathrooms. We weren't sure if the house would be roomy enough, because there were 5 of us (my wife and I, my wife's mother, our 11-year old daughter and her best friend), but because of the indoor/outdoor layout, it felt plenty spacious. Great neighborhood, directly across the street from a beautiful beach, and we were able to walk to restaurants and shops. We highly recommend this home."

  • Great place to stay!

    "My best friend and I stayed here with our kids and loved it! The owner met us to give us keys and show us around the house. It was beautiful just like the pictures! Awesome location 1/2 block from the beach and walking distance to everything! Would love to stay here again!"

San Diego County Travel Tips

The coastal community of San Diego is the second-largest city in California. Originally, the area was inhabited by the San Dieguito and La Jolla Native American tribes before it was established as the first European settlement by Spain during the mid-1500s. The city has experienced substantial growth since its founding, and has changed hands between Mexico and the U.S. throughout its extensive history.

Located approximately 120 miles south of Los Angeles, this shoreline community rests along the the U.S.-Mexico border in southern California. San Diego experiences a warm climate throughout the majority of the year, with most of the annual precipitation falling between December and March. Winter weather is mild, and temperatures rarely drop down to the freezing point. Visitors should pack light, with a few pairs of shorts, sunglasses and a bottle of sunscreen, and possibly a light jacket or sweater for twilight chills or day trips near the Pacific.

Oceanfront Activities

With its close proximity to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, the city of San Diego boasts a wealth of waterfront activities and tourist attractions. The subtropical climate presents comfortable conditions for visitors interested in spending a day or two enjoying outdoor excursions and the natural beauty of the area.

- SeaWorld San Diego is an adventure theme park that features a wide selection of thrill rides, animal encounters and engaging performances. Get your adrenaline pumping on the steep drops and arching curves on the double-launch Manta roller coaster, or enjoy an interaction with dolphins and other creatures of the deep that call this park home. Acrobatic aquatic performances feature the talents of numerous marine-dwelling mammals, who launch themselves high into the air and engage in death-defying stunts that will surely take your breath away.

- The beaches of San Diego stretch out on 70 miles of pristine coastline and offer guests the opportunity to lay out over white sands and soak up some California sunshine. Join locals in a game of sand volleyball at Mission Beach or compete in the sand castle competition at Imperial Beach in the south bay. Ocean Beach is nestled between the San Diego River and the rolling hills of Point Loma, and often presents prime conditions for surfing, swimming and other waterfront frivolity.

More than 7,000 photographs, films and videos are housed throughout the galleries, which demonstrate historic imagery, aesthetic movements and technological advancements in the field.

A feast for the eyes awaits any art connoisseur who ventures into the many galleries of this enlightening museum.

- The San Diego Air and Space Museum is a truly intriguing establishment that boasts a variety of early aviation vehicles as well as some modern-day engineering masterpieces.

Downtown San Diego
