About Gina Mattern

I am the property manager for this lovely home. I'm here to provide a seamless visit for your trip to San Diego. I was raised in La Jolla and now currently live in Del Mar. I am a local real estate agent selling coastal properties.

Why Gina Mattern chose Encinitas

This home has all the fun amenities to make your stay in San Diego a memorable one. The stunning views this home provides will make it hard to leave! Mother nature puts on a glorious show every night. The hammock, fire pit and hot tub are a great way to relax if you've been out sightseeing or beaching it. Coastal location makes for easy access to several beach communities. Close to freeway.

What makes this house unique

The views are truly remarkable!

Loved our stay here!! It was so beautiful and peaceful! We’d definitely come back! If you have little babies the only downfall might be the train noise with all the windows open in the house in summer but we managed!

Great, cozy house with an amazing view of The Pacific! Lovely sunsets and really close to Seaside Market and adjoining shops as well as downtown Encinitas. Road can be busy getting into and out of driveway but no real problems given a little patience. Would love to return one day with the family!
