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).

Keywords: Beach Cottage
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
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.
surf, bike, jogging, beach, sun, fine dining, entertainment; it's all here
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!
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....
I've stayed at this property a few times and love the location (short drive to beaches), the fenced in yard, the owners, and the kitchen/grill amenities. The landscaping is nice and there is an outdoor shower. Because San Diego has been unseasonably warm, it is important to note there is no AC as detailed;however, it was so hot at night we couldn't sleep. There is a small window in each room and ceiling fans but only hot air circulated and we couldn't get cool. I think an AC window unit is a must but now that I know I can plan accordingly and wouldn't hesitate to stay.
This rental was exactly as advertised. It slept my little family of 4 perfectly with room to spare. It is quiet and off the beaten path. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. The beach is a short drive away and beach stuff is provided all you need to do is ask. The patio was great and enclosed. We ate our dinners out there and it kept my little one closed in and still let him run around. Peggy and her husband were accommodating and nice. Our youngest is approaching 2 and has started his screaming phase and I felt terrible. I was reassured it was okay and to not stress about it. We will definitely be going back next summer!!!
This spot is great! The cottage is tucked away in a beautiful community. My family felt safe and comfortable. Its about 10 minutes from the Moonlight Beach (which is the perfect family beach). I cannot recommend this place enough! It was a perfect introduction to vacation rentals for my little family!
We expected that there was a sofa bed as the ad indicates that it sleeps 2-3 people. Only suitable for couple or single person. One person in our party (2 people in the party) had to sleep on the floor without adequate bedding.
