About M.Riley

We are an active couple in our early 60s, owners of a small business who spend part of the year at the beach and the other part in Houston where our grandchildren are.

We enjoy renting our place to people who love being at the beach, and enjoy its natural beauty as well as the convenience of walking to lots of great resturants, markets etc.

M.Riley purchased this condo in 2004

Why M.Riley chose Encinitas

We love the beach and spend several months a year at this place.Walking on the beach every day is a great way to start with the breathtaking sunsets every night being a great way to usher in the evening.

What makes this condo unique

Spectacular ocean views- none better, very quiet and private area- 18 total units, typically only about half are occupied,

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this place for two winters from November through April in 2007/8 and 2008/9. We found this place to be a beautiful quiet spot and a great way to get away from the snow and cold weather in Spokane Washington.We love the ocean and also enjoy the convenience of being close to our children and grandchildren who live in San Diego. This place has great views!

We both enjoy golf and there are many courses conveniently available. We walked on the beach almost every day- a great way to exercize and enjoy natutre at the same time.

Although its a little small- it was perfect for the two of us and we had plenty of room when our grandchildren stayed with us.

Last year,we decided to try a winter in the desert- in the Palm Springs area- and as it turned out the owners also have a condo at a very nice resort which we rented last year- based on our excellent experience with this condo. The desert condo- on a golf course with great mountain views turned out to be a great place as well.

Both units were in great shape well furnished with updated appliances.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this Condo are excellent people to deal with.

The Condo is on the bluff and has ocean views from every window. The rooms are spacious and have comfortable furniture for reading or just lounging checking out the ocean views!

Sitting on either balcony you can watch, surfer's at Boneyards and Swamii's, dolphins and whales! I surf on a Stand Up Paddle Board and paddle in from Moonlight Beach.

There are two underground parking spots but you do not need a car here. You can walk to a multitude of great places to eat, drink and shop. Whole Foods. Swamiis Meditation Gardens and Moonlight Beach are close by.

The kitchen is well equipped and there is a gas grille on one of the balcony's.

If you are a veteran, like myself, the American Legion Hall is right down the street. A great place to have a drink and shoot some pool with fellow vets!

My family has rented from Mary and Mike for four years and hope to continue into the future!

Great unit, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this fantastic condo; it's really the best location in the complex and affords great views and gets lots of sun. We have rented condos from VRBO for the past 10 years and I can say that this really is the best so far! We appreciated having so many restaurants and shops within walking distance (we enjoyed Lobster West, Union Tap, Fish House, and the Biergarten). Taking the train into San Diego was easy and inexpensive. Plus, the condo has everything you need to cook a meal-and then some! Very tastefully decorated. I didn't want to leave (especially since it was 10 below in Minnesota when we returned!).

Imagine Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a month in this wonderful, oceanfront condo. It was just what we wanted; nicely decorated, comfortable beds, spectacular views, walking distance to meals, entertainment and beaches. There is nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Encinitas has a lively, friendly vibe and we felt right at home. We definitely plan to return.

Wonderful view, sound and scent of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This beach condo was more that I could have dreamed for! Views of the ocean from every window; it was clean, and comfortable, with WI-FI, and cable TV...! The photos on this website were lovely..but the actual place was spectacular! I would recommend this to my dearest family & friends! All wonderful restaurants & attractions were within walking distance..the Potato shack for breakfast; Three corners for wonderful wine & dinner...numerous walking beaches... and oh my to fall asleep hearing the ocean, and awake to seeing dolphins! On a scale from 1 to's definitely a 10+

Breathtaking Oceanfront Living!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent six months (Oct'11 thru Mar'12) living in this beautifully appointed condo. It has absolutely everything you need, just bring your suitcase. The views are breathtaking. You can literally see from Oceanside to La Jolla with unobstructed ocean views. We even saw whales from time to time while sitting on the comfy couch. The condo complex is small and quiet with a great pool and hot tub. The king bed in the master bedroom combined with the sound of the ocean makes for some of the best night sleep you will ever get. The second bedroom has a pull out full couch which is very comfortable. We had several visitors during our six month stay and all commented on the comfort of the bed.

Other than the views the second best part of the condo is its location in Encinitas. There is no need for a car as there are several excellent restaurants and stores within walking distance as well as a Starbucks and Whole Foods.

We really enjoyed our time in Encinitas and can't wait to come back!!
