About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our craftsman cottage is a short walk to the beach, Old Town Encinitas restaurants and shops, parks (including a dog park), and the 'Coaster' commuter train station.

The cottage has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom is very comfortable with a queen bed, closet, large shower in the bathroom, and french doors to the deck. The second bedroom is an office with a futon. The futon will sleep kids nicely, but is a little small (but works) for two adults. The second bath has a tub/shower combination. We have a large, nicely landscaped, fenced backyard, with a deck, gas BBQ, and Jacuzzi hot tub. The deck gets sunshine all day and is a great place to relax after a day at the beach. The cottage has a very open feel with a full kitchen, dining area, and living room. The living area has a wide screen TV, Bose docking station/am/fm radio, wirerless internet, and french doors to the back deck.

You can walk to the 'D' Street beach stairway, Moonlight Beach (great for families), or the famous Swami's surf spot. Many nice beaches/surf spots just a short drive away. Two blocks to Coast Highway with it's many restaurants and shops. One block to a great new library or the Coaster train station. Daily commuter trains to Solana Beach, Old Town, and the Santa Fe Station in downtown San Diego.

The cottage is a great place for a couple or small family. Four adults would work if one couple was comfortable with the futon or large air mattress.

The cottage is in a nice residential neighborhood two blocks up the hill from Coast Highway. We have very nice neighbors with young families. It is a quiet area where folks walk with their kids and dogs in the evening. Well behaved dogs are welcome, and there is an off leash dog park at the end of our street.

The house will be available for rental beginning June, 2016. The calendar is up to date and indicates when the house is available from June through September in 2017.

About Vince Jewell

Vince and Gail are retired educators. We travel extensively with our Golden Retriever, "Blue",

and rent our house while we travel.

Vince Jewell purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Vince Jewell chose San Diego County

The house is in a great location. Great beaches/surf spots nearby, and Old Town Encinitas just down the hill. Easy freeway access and a commuter train to San Diego. An easy drive to Legoland, Balboa Park, Petco Park (for baseball fans), Old Town, The Gaslamp area, and Little Italy.

What makes this cottage unique

We seldomly use our car on the weekend, choosing to BBQ on the deck, or walk to one of the nearby restaurants for dinner. We walk, run, or bike at the beach almost every day.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our 2 young kids (4 and 2) and had an absolutely amazing time. The house is beautiful and has an awesome backyard. The house also has a truly great location. We were able to walk into town for dinners and frozen yogurt, walk to the playground right around the corner and walk to the awesome Encinitas library, again right around the corner. Moonlight Beach is really close and is a great family beach. The owners take great care of their property, everything was immaculate and user-friendly. Communication with the owners was prompt, clear and welcoming. In short, we loved our stay and hope to go back again!
