The cottage is a seperate unit, a backyard 'granny-flat' that's about 750sq. feet . You have two seperate bedrooms, a kitchenette/living area plus bathroom. Freshly remodeled, this 'beach close' charmer looks out upon a secluded garden and lawn with badminton and loads of flowers. Eclectic is the feeling. Attention to 'creature comforts' and simplicity was the intention when renovating[Italian and Mexican tile accents, hardwood floors...] . An ajoining [but completely private] second bedroom is generously sized and includes a double bed. The kitchenette and living area overlooks the lawn and garden area.. . NO SMOKING in house or on the grounds.
We see the situation as most attractive to couples, or couples with children, looking for a peaceful setting within a short walk to our little beach town and our great beaches-, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Leucadia, a sample of Southern California beach living.
We are located in one of north San Diego County's oldest neighborhoods, the Highlands of Encinitas. A 10 to 15 min. walk and you will find yourself in the quaint seaside town. Ethnic dining is big; great Italian, Peruvain, Thai, Indian, Japanese, etc.- Encinitas seems to be on the cutting edge of the 'conscious life-style' movement so health minded options abound. Whole Foods is close by. While the beach and ocean remain the main attractions, the beautiful gardens of the Self Realization Fellowship are a short walk into town, a resource for relaxation and rejuvenation. Our town is 'coming of age' you might say and it's all just a short walk away.
Return to the tranquility of your secluded and cozy garden cottage. If it feels like a fit, drop in and give us a try, maybe you'll become a regular.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
