This duplex is located on Leucadia’s premier street, Neptune Avenue which runs along the coastline. Our home is a short walk-- only 2 ½ blocks from the prized Beacon’s Beach.

Sweep open French doors from both the dining and living rooms as the gentle sea breeze quietly calls to you. Enjoy the beautiful high, vaulted, wood ceiling in the living room and meticulously furnished spaces. Sit out on the large eastern deck to enjoy the sunrise or the western covered deck to relax in the shade after a long day at the beach. At night, enjoy a seating area surrounding a fire pit nestled within a fenced garden oasis. Cuddle up, under the 100% cotton, 500 thread count sheets, while experiencing the comfort of high-end mattresses.

Traveling with a party of 10? We’ve got you covered. This home has two master bedrooms one looking out on the Leucadia hills and the other looking out onto a garden oasis. Each master has a King-sized bed, the remaining two bedrooms have queen beds, not to mention a queen sized pull out couch in the living room! Even the sleeper has a high-end mattress for your comfort. If you are in a bind and need to sleep an additional 2 people, we can place an extra Queen, Tri-fold, folding mattress and sofa bed in one of the closets for you . Need extra parking and space for your surfboards? This property has off street parking, and a two car garage. You also have access to a shared use washer and dryer located in the laundry room next to the garage.

About Claire Stewart

We are a family of teachers and students who run this account together. We absolutely love this home and are so grateful that we get to share it with others.

Claire Stewart purchased this house in 2016

Why Claire Stewart chose Leucadia

This property is beautifully furnished by one of the owners, who is a professor of art here in San DIego. It is walking distance to the beach, and it has wonderful indoor/outdoor space. Not to mention how spacious it is!

What makes this house unique

No car? No problem. Most of Encinitas' prime spots are within walking distance. Leaucadia is the premier spot in Encinitas. Stroll on over to highway 101 for breakfast lunch and dinner. The strip offers a vast variety of foods to choose from. Also a great bar scene at night! Also the best and most secluded surfing beach in Encinitas is a few blocks down.

Comfort and location

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious and good layout for a group of seven family members. Bedrooms were very nice. Linens nice. Great location, easy walk to beacon beach lookout point. Across street from ocean but no view, but minutes from beaches. Lots of great restaurants nearby.

Nice home in great location near beach

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Memorial Day weekend here. The house is spacious, with front patio, back deck, and large living and dining areas. Bedrooms are good size with comfortable beds. The public beach is less than a half mile up the street. Encinitas is humming with activity; eateries and shops are in easy walking distance. Thumbs up on the whole experience!

Somewhat disappointed

  • 2 of 5

The picture for this property on VRBO is a little misleading. It showed a view of the ocean and you cannot see the ocean from the house. The driveway up to the garage is very steep and we could not even fit one car in it. Luckily there is plenty of on street parking. The house is walking distance to many restaurants and our bed was very comfortable. Encinitas seems like a beautiful place to live!

Owner's Response: Unsure what image in our listing is misleading. The singular picture that includes the ocean, is an aerial view of the building from 100 feet up. No where in our description do we advertise an ocean view. And we mention, not only in our description, but also in our headline, that it is a 2.5 block walk to the beach. I can't imagine why we would be rated poorly, when the main objection presented, suggested our images were misleading-- but in fact our images and descriptions are both honest and accurate.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

After getting off to a rough start, due to no fault of the property owner, we had a great stay at this rental. HomeAway had sent the wrong key code to get in to the unit, so we could not get in until late at night. A number of other issues occurred as well, no internet, no tv, and to top it off, no electricity the next morning. Again, no fault of the property owner.

However, the owners graciously took it upon themselves to credit us with a gift certificate to a local pub that was very generous. Great customer service on their part. We would definitely stay at this unit again. Thank you for turning our stay around.

Great, comfortable home for two families, walking distance to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beach house! It was perfect to share for two families of four each. Loved having both a front yard and a back patio, with a BBQ. The home seems newly decorated and clean. The kitchen has basic amenities, and the owners thoughtfully provided some snacks to start our vacation off well! The walk to the beach is easy, and we loved that the beach has lifeguards. We also loved being able to walk to shops and restaurants nearby. The driveway is steep but we always found street parking close by. Highly recommend!
