A little more about Encinitas, CA -

Flowers and Surf

Located in southern California, slightly to the north of San Diego, Encinitas is a coastal community known of all things for its vast fields of poinsettias and other ornamental flowers. The vast fields under cultivation are lovely in the fall, and each November the annual Poinsettia Festival takes place in the downtown area of the city.

Encinitas holiday homes also fill up during the Wavecrest Woodie Meet, which takes place each September on the third Saturday of the month at Moonlight State Beach. Free to both the public and all participants; the festival consists of a large rally of wooden bodied vehicles and is reputed to be the largest event of this type in the world. Another popular draw each fall is Oktoberfest, which is timed to parallel similar festivals being held across Germany.

Several important museums and other cultural amenities are located in Encinitas, including the Lux Art Institute and the San Dieguito Heritage Museum. Those who come to the city out of their interest in horticulture will want to visit the San Diego Botanic Garden, which is located not in San Diego but in Encinitas; the name derives from the fact that the city is located in San Diego County.

One of the most popular water sports in Encinitas is surfing, whose beaches have been rated among the top surfing locations on earth. So well known is Encinitas for its surf that the Beach Boys listed the city in their roll call of great beaches in their classic song, 'Surfin' USA.'

PET Rules:
I do charge the following pet fees:

2. NO pets on the furniture unless furniture is covered by tenant. (Deposit will not be refunded if fur/hair covers furniture).
3.

Owner will also pay $50 towards the water bill (which is usually about $30-$50 with normal use).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I've lived in Encinitas all my life and would never move away because it's truly the best place to live and visit (the awesome stable weather has a lot to do with it). I went to Park Dale Lane Elementary, Oak Crest Jr. High and San Dieguito High School. I played Little League Baseball at the old Ecke Fields and Soccer for about 7 years each and then settled for the high school surf team and surfing as a lifestyle. I enjoy snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, motorcross, etc. I have a 9 year old daughter and consider myself a family man, most of the time.

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
This location is great as it's a short walk to downtown Encinitas and to the great local surf breaks like Moonlight Beach, D Street, BoneYards and the famous Swamies which is a nice 1/4 mile walk South. The ocean views and sunsets from this home are awesome as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ocean Views and close proximity to Downtown Encinitas which is home to award winning Restaurants and Bars with a Whole Foods a block away from the house. You will never need to drive since the Coaster station is 2 blocks away ready to take you anywhere.
