About the property

Step outside and pick some oranges off the tree for fresh juice for breakfast, or pick some limes for a refreshing mojito. The grounds of this charmingly furnished Cottage Guest House in the scenic Leucadia area of Encinitas, are lush and tropical with lots of fruit trees and we've even started an organic garden. Fresh salad anyone? It's in a quiet residential neighborhood ½ mile from Beacons Beach, Stone Steps Beach and South Carlsbad State Beach for surfing, enjoying romantic sunsets and other beach fun. Just 1 mile to downtown Encinitas, Moonlight Beach and train station (which gives you access to downtown San Diego, Padres games, Convention Center, Charger Games, San Diego Bay, Mission Bay, Los Angeles and anywhere Amtrak will go).

Leucadia is a safe, friendly beach community that features a lot of yoga, healthy food, surfing, running, cycling, and all the rest the beach has to offer.

About The Owner

San Diego Natives with a long time desire to live at the beach. This finally happened in 1996 when we bought our first house at the beach in Encinitas and we have never looked back. Encinitas is home and we could never go elsewhere. We love it here with our family and know our guests will love it as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Encinitas

Spend any amount of time here in Encinitas and you'll see why we fell in love with this wonderful beach community. It's got so much to offer and it's beautiful almost the entire year round. Laid back, funky, and hip all at the same time.

What makes this house unique

surf, bike, jogging, beach, sun, fine dining, entertainment; it's all here

The perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Peggy, for a wonderful stay at your beach cottage. It was quiet, clean, and adorable. We particularly appreciated how welcoming you were to our dog, Fay. This was her first road trip (from Oakland) and it was a great success, thanks to your hospitality. All my best - Lisa

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very happy with our stay and our dogs were happy too! The Cottage is located in a wonderful neighborhood, with a private entrance. It is very spacious inside with a cozy feel. Peggy was very nice and accommodating. The Cottage was clean and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. It was great for our dogs. There was plenty of room for them to come and go (inside and outside) with a nice fenced in area where you can keep the door open and enjoy the beautiful southern California weather. We highly recommend this Cottage, and hope to stay again in the future!

Peaceful Palace

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this VRBO rental so very much. The cottage was very, very clean and quiet and well-equipped. The stay here was effortless and we enjoyed our vacation much more knowing that we were in a very safe and comfortable place. We'll return again!

Praise +

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2 weeks with dog. Hesitate to review it because I want it all to myself. Better than I ever imagined. Clean with minimalist, tasteful decor--welcoming but not touristy-fussy. I felt at home there, instantly. Comfy furniture, comfy bed, anything you would need in kitchen and bath, near best beaches in SD County (don't tell others), (driving) near great Encinitas shopping, and in a picturesque residential neighborhood far from bustle of beach scene but close enough to it to enjoy it. Concerns = if you want to be close to downtown attractions, venue is in North County, a long haul out always crowded I-5 corridor. Also to me it would be too small for 4--but perfect for 1 or 2. Last, you will need a car--this venue is not in the middle of tourist action (that's what is great about it). Also perfect for females traveling alone--felt safe, walked dog in evening and never worried about coming back there after dark. Designated parking spot and well-lit. Finally nothing but praise for owners--Peggy was attentive but respectful of privacy and generous beyond call of duty once when my dog behaved badly. In short, I would go there again. Tomorrow. Hoping they might let me move in there....
