About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This two bedroom unit is one of three in this beach triplex - although you would never guess that it is attached! The feel inside if that of a mountain cabin - except for the ocean breeze and magnificent view. Its the perfect place for a family vacation or personal retreat. Visit the sister unit on this property VRBO #234391 and rent both units for a group vacation!

Please note that as of October 2017, we do not have parking for this property as the City of Encinitas has claimed the parking strip to create a sidewalk.

Enjoy the amazing sunsets and ocean view while dining or while relaxing in the living room in front of the large picture windows - or while eating outside on the private deck with an unobstructed ocean view. Or just hang out in the very private backyard/patio area.

One bedroom has a queen size bed and opens out through large sliding doors into the yard area. The other bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is also a very comfortable inflatable bed for extra sleeping accomodations.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for cooking and/or entertaining.

We are close to everything in Encinitas! We can walk down to Moonlight Beach, or just enjoy the view of the ocean and the ocean breeze from the comfort of our deck - which is huge! We can walk right across the street to the public tennis courts or up to the flea market or any of the many restaurants or the local theater, the La Paloma. The Del Mar Race track is near by and just a couple of miles straight up the street is all the shopping you could need. Not to mention the Coaster stops just a few blocks away in case we want to take a little trip into San Diego.

About The Owner

We have had many years of wonderful times here in Encinitas. Our place has been a gathering place for barbeques, parties, and respite for all of our family. This property has been in our family since 1971.

The Owner purchased this house in 1971

Why The Owner chose San Diego County

My parents bought the property back when Encinitas was truly a small surf haven. The family has been coming down ever since and loving every minute of it!

What makes this house unique

We love sitting watching the ocean while our morning coffee or sipping a glass wine in the evening watching the sunset from our own private deck.

My husband and I love that we can walk our dogs to restaurants or through the park across the street or to any place we might want to go while we're here.

And its wonderful when other family members want to come down - they can stay in the other unit on the property and we can all be together but separate! The other unit is #234391 - in case you want an extended family vacation.

I shouldn't be telling you this but....

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is our yearly get away and family secret. We've stayed three years now and plan on returning again. We actually go with another family who have been renting the adjoining property for years also. We finally listened to them, rented, and fell in love. We (adults) hit the beach daily, walk to dinner, walk to drinks and even go nearby farmers markets. The kids love the beach, play tennis, and have even camped outdoors on the deck. Thanks Carol and Jackie!

Amazing stay in Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family with young children. We walked everyday to Moonlight Beach to enjoy the playground and beach area with the kids. Dining places were within a block walk and downtown Encinitas is a short walk away. The property was perfect for our travel needs. Not having to share a 1 bedroom hotel with the kids was nice since they had their own room. Carol has this place stocked with everything that you need as a home away from home and she was very responsive with all inquiries leading up to the trip. Jackie is quite the lively character who welcomed us the property and generously showed us around.

Our family was sad to return home from this mini beach paradise and we look forward to our return trip. To think that Encinitas was on a whim from a friend's suggestion (we typically head to San Diego) this was a perfect trip and we look forward to returning.

Pleasant and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was a very peaceful and pleasant stay.

We did not have a vehicle but did not find that a hindrance to seeing the local area. The location is great! We walked along the beach everyday. We walked into downtown Encinitas. The train is a block away if you wish to venture further. Grocery shopping in walking distance, restaurants and shops as well. We made a point of watching the incredible sunsets from the deck. Truly beautiful.

The home is welcoming and comfortable. It is spotless clean and well cared for. Jackie ( the caretaker) welcomed us upon arrival and was there if we had questions. Carol ( the owner) was wonderful to deal with and very responsive.

We have friends that live locally, who visited us at this property, and are looking to book it for their extended family when they visit. We would love to book this property again for our next visit.

Clean, convenient and charming! This cottage is literally just a few steps from everything.

  • 5 of 5

The views and outdoor space was fabulous for two 55+ winter weary New Yorkers. We watched the sunsets from the front deck. The furnishings are new, clean and comfortable...including his and her recliners. You should be aware, if older, that there are steep stairs to enter and exit the property...and it is close to the train ...if you are a light sleeper.

We enjoyed cooking out and eating in many meals -the BBQ grill and kitchen are very nicely appointed.

It's also great to have a caretaker on site to answer any questions!

We hope to make this our West Coast home away from home and we highly recommend it.

Perfect Location! Highly Recommend It!

  • 5 of 5

My family unanimously agrees this was THE perfect place to gather for our week stay in Oct. Carol has done a splendid job making sure her guests will have everything they could possibly need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. My grown children live in the Encinitas area and I wanted to have a place where we could all gather and my husband and I could cook for them. The two outdoor areas are awesome and we all spent most of our time there. During our free time, my husband and I walked to downtown Encinitas to shop and people watch, ( I always visit Art N Soul on 101 and Off Track Gallery) and spent time relaxing on Moonlight Beach. Our caretaker Jackie was awesome as well, always available if we had questions and always greeted us with a smile. Each of us appreciated the positive vibe of the this great property and look forward to staying here again!
