                                                    Perfect beach rental

                                                    You can’t beat this location! Walk to the beach and countless restaurants. Having a fenced in patio area was a major bonus when traveling with little kids. We always worry about comfortable beds at rentals and these were great. Nice bedding, soft towels, stocked kitchen, comfy and clean. Felt like home, and we will be back! No reason for us to ever stay anywhere else. Very nice owners live nearby so if there was an issue we know they would solve it quickly. We used the bikes and appreciated the outdoor shower for rinsing off after beach. Lights on the patio made it beautiful at night and the plants provided total privacy and that California feeling we wanted! We didn’t want to leave!

                                                    Our stay in this well kept beach cottage was a wonderful respite. The cottage was well furnished, well maintained, just a block of the beautiful Encinitas beach...everything one could want while visiting Southern California.

                                                    Located two blocks from one of the most stunning beaches I have ever been too, the beach cottage provided a perfect base to explore the area. My family had a great time and Galyn was a gracious host who was easy to contact for any questions or requests. We hope to come back soon.
