About Michael & Mary
Michael is an east coast boy raised in Freehold, NJ (Bruce Springsteen country!) and went to college in NYC. Mary is a southern California girl raised in Riverside. We met 22 years ago in NYC and it was love at first sight - well, not exactly. (Truth is Michael wouldn't take no for an answer.) After spending several years living in New York City, we made the decision to move to the West Coast to raise our kids in 2004. Growing up in southern California - and attending college in San Diego - Mary always knew someday she would be back in SoCal. We finally found a place we could call home for our kids while enjoying everything that the California coast has to offer.
Michael & Mary purchased this Guest House in 2011
Why Michael & Mary chose Encinitas
We fell in love with the privacy of our property and its unique French style architecture. We love the feel of being in an established neighborhood while also being able to walk to beaches, restaurants and leisure activities. The grounds are filled with palm, citrus, pomegranate and apple trees. Our home, which is on the same property as the Guest House, is located on a half acre lot - fairly large considering its close proximity to the ocean.

A beautiful home in a great town
I highly recommend this VRBO Michael and Mary are very professional and were able to answer any questions we had before and during our stay. The property was very well kept and although staying just feet from the owners home we had complete privacy and our own backyard.
The home is brand new and had all of the essentials for a relaxing weekend. The beds were heavenly and the baths luxurious. The kitchen is gorgeous and BBQ right outside the kitchen is very convenient although we did enjoy the local restaurants on this stay at the suggestion of the owners. We loved the short distance to the beach. Our kids were happy to know that there were enough beach chairs for the kids too not just the adults! We would love to return for another stay in the future.
Mandy and her family were wonderful guests! They were quiet & respectful during their stay and left the carriage house in immaculate condition when they left. They are the type of guests any host would want. We would love to host them again in the future!
Beautiful home with great location
We loved this home.
Michael was very kind in answering any questions we had and the home was beautiful. It had everything we needed with upscale design and furnishings.
We had two little ones with no stroller, so we never walked to town or the beach, but both were very close! We really enjoyed Encinitas. We definitely will be back.
I would absolutely stay at this home again and absolutely recommend this home for anyone.
Anna and her family were great guests! They were very quiet and left the carriage house in great condition. We would welcome them back any time!
This place was perfect!! The house was beautiful and in a wonderful location! The owners were very helpful! Everything we needed was located in the house, including all beach accessories!! Highly recommend this property!
Thank you Jackie for your wonderful review! We are very happy you and your family enjoyed our property and would host you again anytime.
Fantastic Rental Property!
Anything and everything related to the rental of this property was first-class in every way possible. The owners (Michael & Mary) were very helpful and eager to answer any questions my group had prior to our arrival, including providing some great recommendations for dining, etc in the area. The rental property was very clean and very well-appointed. Will definitely use this property again if work or pleasure take me back to the Encinitas-area in the future
Thank you for the kind review. We are so glad you and your group enjoyed your stay. And thank you for leaving the carriage house in great condition.
Great property, great hosts and great location
Our family of four spent 3 nights at the carriage house in Encinitas and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Walking distance to the beach and a close drive to LEGOLAND, botanical gardens and more! Definitely recommend and we will keep the carriage house in mind for our next trip to San Diego area.
Thank you for your kind review! You and your family were wonderful guests. We would welcome you back anytime. We are glad you had a great time during your visit to San Diego!

A beautiful beach retreat!
What a stunning property! A rare find on VRBO. We were fortunate to have our spring break at the Carriage House where there are high-end luxuries all around - the bedroom linens, the pristine kitchen, the beach amenities, to the spa-like bathrooms. To top this fabulous home - the owners were extremely helpful and welcoming! We will definitely be returning to the Carriage House!
Thanks so much Alexis! We loved having your family and hope you come back on a future visit to the area. I'm so glad you were comfortable and appreciated the amenitites. I hope you had an easy flight home with your beautiful kids:)
This is a resort community year-round so everything from the beach and hiking to Lego Land and the San Diego Zoo are all within 25 minutes. There are dozens of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the guesthouse. This community is great for family vacations, romantic getaways or ladies weekends away.
