About the property

Duplex, ea. with 3 bedrooms,2 decks and lower patio and many amenities.

Luxury with BEST LOCATION! 100 Steps to Beach&In main part of Town.This luxuriously home (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, is located 130 steps to beach or 100 steps to downtown Encinitas Village on Coast Hwy 101, in the famous Moonlight Beach area where you will over find over 40 eateries from casual to fine dinning with entertainment and boutique shopping on the way. The interior is wonderful with top of the line appliances, beds, and furnishings. We have beach cruiser bikes, BBQ, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, board games, toys, books, porta crib, high chair, stroller and much more for you use at no extra charge. You will love it!!!

It's a short walk to the train station for travel to other San Diego areas although most guests stay and enjoy all that Encinitas has to offer. The casual lifestyle invokes visions of endless summers, beautiful beaches, year-round gardens. Residents know how to enjoy life and spend most of their time outdoors since the weather is nearly perfect. Encinitas takes pride in their historic downtown & vibrant community. Beginning in 1928 the La Paloma Theatre(5 minute walk) hosted the opening of the “Cohen’s And Kely’s in Paris” Attended by Mary Pickford (Americas Sweetheart)and other Hollywood starlets who continued to grace the stage, more recent being Jay Leno, Timothy Leary and I attended the performance where the band Switchfoot” was discovered. They still hold a once a year surfing benefit at Moonlight Beach and perform in the afternoon where a hug stage is set up for them and it’s all fun. Although Moonlight Beach is labeled the Beach with everything, other walkable beaches include Swami”s which is forever immortalized in the Beach Boys “Surfin USA”

The other unit in the duplex is also available for concurrent rental for large parties; contact owner for more information. Summer( Sat to Sat.), Holiday's and Holiday weeks are 500 a night but are subject to a reduction closer to the date of arrival.

About Sharon Runager

I am a mother of three grown children and being a grandmother is amazingly wonderful and they all love the beach. I live in the neighboring town of Del Mar but we all love staying in Encinitas. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and being able to walk to the never ending fun things to do. I have guests that return to visit regularly, and I will do my best to make you one of them.

Why Sharon Runager chose Encinitas

I think this beach area is one of the very best in all of California. Know for its casual friendly atmosphere and places to shops. At the corner you will find mouth watering pizza by the slice, and white table clothed tables on the corner serving great Italian food. There are casual restaurants but has also many up-scale restaurants and bars to chat and meet the locals and visitors to the area. It is about 8 miles to Legoland.

What makes this house unique

From this location you can walk or ride the bikes everywhere. It's an incredable walk or ride to the south where you can watch the many surfers from the cliff catch the waves. You can also grab a board at the house and try it yourself. Boogie boarding is easy and must for all and will get you going to the beach every day with a smile on your face.

Great Location, Bad Cockroaches

  • 2 of 5

Great location, owner needs to properly clean the property prior to rentals. Needs to update the property in many aspects and not rely solely on the location. On arrival found several cockroaches in the silverware drawer, spent the next two hours prior to my two little kids arriving washing dishes with crust and spots on them. Super gross and not acceptable, and definitely not luxury. Otherwise location is really good but doesn't make up for the general run down condition of the property and the lack of cleaning.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about your complaint, the city worked on the sewer system so this whole area was having problems because we don't think they secured the connection. My neighbors and I have cleaned and treated our accesses to the sewer and were thinking all was well. We will now be contacting the city to fix the problem. You should have called me or told me even before I left and I would have gladly sent someone to take care of any of the resulting problems. Again, I apologize and If you would trust me for another stay it would be of no charge.

Relaxing location right next to beach

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location. Very relaxing home just blocks from the beach and a block from the strip with all the restaurants and shopping Encinitas has to offer. Everything you could possibly need in the garage for your use (beach chairs, bikes, etc). Nice outdoor space to sit with friends. Overall, nice laid back place to stay in Encinitas. Sharon was great to deal with and very communicative.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home last night from one week in this condo and it was wonderful. I was visiting my son and brought my 2 grandsons so they could surf. The location was perfect! 2 blocks to the west and they could surf, 2 blocks to the east and they could get tacos, yogurt, pizza - they were in heaven. Each had there own bedroom and they shared a bath and I had the upstairs bed and bath to myself. They were riding bikes around the town and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. For anyone with kids who are eager to get out and get around, this is the place for you. The kitchen is well-equipped if you wish to cook - we didn't, we took advantage of the great restaurants in the area - all within walking distance. And the beds are very comfortable! Don't hesitate to consider this rental, it worked well.

We have bicycles for you to ride, boogie boards, air mattresses & more for you to use at your own risk. At Moonlight Beach you will find fire pits, volleyball, restrooms & a fun kids playground there too.
