About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Classic, single level beach bungalow just steps to the beach....No need for a car- just park and walk a 2 minutes to Moonlight Beach & 5 minutes to the beautiful Hwy 101 and downtown Encinitas (see the video link) with a multitude of restaurants, shops & entertainment.
Sleeping for 5-6 with two bedrooms, sunroom & two full baths, 2 car garage. Spacious living room has plenty of seating, a work desk area & new 55" state of the art Roku (streaming) flat screen TV with cable TV+HBO, Blue Ray player + selection of DVD's for your use. Free Wi Fi computer access. We also have a variety of board games for family fun. Kitchen with dining table for 6 is fully equipped. Just off kitchen is a 2 car garage with laundry. Completely fenced and private courtyard patio. Additional separate deck, outdoor dining table, adirondack chairs and propane grill for those sunset BBQs for year-round outdoor entertaining.
We have supplied beach chairs, beach towels, sun umbrella, boogie boards & sand toys so you can stroll one block away to Moonlight Beach to enjoy the playground, swimming/surfing, new snack bar and picnic area with fire pits. (Moonlight Beach has undergone a $4.8 million dollar facelift which was completed June 2013. New concession stand, beach rentals, playground, restrooms & showers.) Two blocks away is Coast Highway 101 with a multitude of gourmet restaurants/cafes, shopping, La Paloma movie theatre, yoga studios and day spas. With nearly perfect year-round temperatures the outdoors is what locals and vacationers alike relish. Ride bikes, swim, stroll the beach, play volleyball or read a book in the warm sand. For the kids, Legoland is 10 minute drive. San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Petco Park (Home of the Padres) & downtown is a 25 minute drive. Plan a day trip to Disneyland (1 hr drive) or just stay local and enjoy this lovely beach town. The new Crossroads Golf Course or Encinitas Ranch Golf Course are just a few minutes away.
The secret charm of this sleepy little beach town is out! Encinitas was voted one of the 'Worlds Best Surf Towns' by National Geographic in 2012. The magazine’s criteria included “consistent waves, inviting accommodations, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat.” Moonlight Beach was voted 'Best Beach for Families in San Diego' (SD Union Tribune 4/13). There is truly something for everyone to enjoy.
Located with great Interstate 5 freeway and Coaster train access for trips up to Oceanside and points north, or south to the Cedros Design District of Solana Beach and on to beautiful Del Mar (racetrack), La Jolla (Scripps Aquarium) and downtown. San Diego (1/2 hr. drive) offers the Gaslamp quarter, Seaport Village, Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres), Coronado Island, Balboa Park, Seaworld, World Famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park and so much more. Laid back Southern California beach living at its best!
