About Katie and Todd
We are a couple who loves the outdoors and work in the active travel industry. We've traveled the world extensively by bike and foot and find the town of Leucadia to be one of the finest
Katie and Todd purchased this House in 2012
Why Katie and Todd chose Leucadia
The inviting floor plan allows for an indoor/outdoor flow of living. The sectioned living areas give guests the option of community and privacy as desired. The kitchen is complete with gourmet appliances and amenities for those who enjoy cooking indoors and out. Choosing to stay home for meals, bringing them to the beach or going out to the many nearby restaurants can be a challenge whereas all are easily accessible and wonderful. If you love to surf, stand-up paddle or walk the beach - you'll be very happy here.

Good spot, comfortable house, good service
The price was quite high at >$500 a night, but there were no other options available when we booked this, so until there are more Airbnb's in Encinitas, the price was justified.
Todd and Katie have a great house.
Wonderful week in Encinitas
Fantastic week and wonderful stay at this beautiful home. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Perfect layout for our family.
Beautiful Home with plenty of space
We recently had a great stay at this rental. It is a beautiful home, nicely appointed and very well laid out. It is a 10 min walk to Beacon's beach or a 5-10min car ride to Moonlight beach (great for kids). Local restaurants and shopping are all close by foot or car. The owners were very responsive to our requests. The owners request that the AC not be used and while I suppose this is rarely needed due to the local coastal influence for those of us that like a cool home it may be something to consider. Overall a nice rental for the price and location.
Thank you for your kind review of our home. We are sorry for any confusion on using the A/C. We have no restrictions on using the A/C as much as you want and we allow all our renters full control of all house systems. Again we apologize if communication was missed that made you feel you could not use it.

Great place to experience southern California living
Spent one week here in mid June and found this home to be just as described. Never met the owner, Todd, but spoke with him a few times and found him to be always immediately reachable and very friendly and considerate. Enjoyed evenings on the back deck with doors open to family members inside.
No bugs, no humidity. Walked to the beach (just long enough for a little exercise) to watch the surfers each day. Nice clean property. Yes would give thumbs up to friends or family.

Leucadia Home for Legoland Visit
We stayed at the Leucadia house for three nights while taking the family (son/wife/ 2 grandsons and son/girlfriend) to Legoland. The house was very comfortable and provided an excellent base for our forays to Legoland. The house was clean and well appointed. There were a couple of minor mainetnance issues which we communicated directly to the owner. But these issues were well within expectations.
The term "beach vacation home" is a bit of a misnomer. It is about .5 miles downhill to the bluff above the beach (at foot of Leucadia Ave). From there a path wends its way down the cliff to the beach. So it's not convenient for a family to walk to the beach with all of their gear. But it is an easy drive to many fine beaches in the area.
If we were to vacation in this area again, we would defintely (strongly) consider using this property.
Beautiful home. The layout worked well for our three generation family of seven people.
We enjoyed the open floor plan, fenced-in yard, and beautifully appointed designer details. We appreciated the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom – and that the kitchen is large and centrally located. The location is quiet as well as super-convenient – close to the beach and close to the freeway.
This quiet Leucadia home is west of the I-5 with easy access to the 101 and the Encinitas train station. Its central location allows for a short walk to restaurants, cafes, spas and world class beaches (Beacon's) for swimming, surfing, stand up paddle and strolling. The area is an outdoor mecca for hiking, road and mountain biking. Lots of parks and attractions for kids including LegoLand - just 7 miles away.
