Why Susan chose Encinitas

We love this home because of its proximity to downtown Encinitas, yet far enough away (block) to get a good nights sleep! Not to mention that you can walk to the beach in less than a minute!

Memorial Day Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! Owner has done an amazing job outfitting the house for a epic beach weekend. We had 6 adults and 3 children. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals together, save money and enjoy each others company. Rooms were well equipped, clean and cozy. Garage was loaded with beach gear and more for a wonderful weekend with family. Moonlight Beach was 4 minute walk, I timed it. Will definitely stay here again!

Stunning house with tons of space and great location

  • 4 of 5

We were visiting from Bermuda for a wedding and absolutely loved this beach house. It was right next to the water and had a great view. There was a beautiful courtyard and tons of space in the house. There is also a great restaurant nearby and a playground. My only complaint would be that the fridge downstairs was not turned on and we could not figure out how to get the oven on but overall we had a great experience.

Owner's Response: This review is not of our home and was posted accidentally by the traveler for some other house. We do not have a lower level refrigerator nor a stove that doesn't work. It is in the process of getting deleted from my property's dashboard.

Great townhouse to enjoy Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

We are from Australia and had no idea about Encinitas but knew it was on the coast and close to San Diego. I spent many hours looking through Internet sites for a rental property for 1 week in Encinitas but most were significantly overpriced for what was being offered. I then came across Susan's townhouse and while it's not directly on the beach it's only a brisk 5 minute walk to Moonlight beach, which is fantastic. The townhouse is also only 2 minutes from the main drag in the opposite direction where there are many options for eating out or just to have a beer. The townhouse is a quite large with three spacious bedrooms, new kitchen, two bathrooms, and a huge lounge area which contain two large couches, which have 4 recliners. Our experience in the Encinitas was very enjoyable and it had a lot to with the relaxing feel the townhouse gave us. The townhouse is also very reasonably priced compared to other properties and Susan the owner was very helpful. Another big ticket was the friendly neighbours who were also kind to always stop and say hello, they even gave our kids their scooters to use for the day. It was a cool experience and if you are happy to stay a short distance away from the moonlight beach and don't won't be ripped off this is the place to stay.

Best stay on Moonlight beach!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the best stocks residence in Encinitas! The kitchen had every gadget you could imagine. We enjoyed staying in and cooking, but found many nearby restaurants within walking distance if cooking was not on the agenda. With the beach only a block away, it was always hard to stay in.

The owner was always readily accessible when we had questions. We very much enjoyed this place!

Spring Break Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We did all the must do activities in the area for a vacation with two kids and found it was the perfect house to return to for a relaxing evening. We had everything we needed to cook but had great dinning options within walking distance. And Moonlight beach is the best, just an easy walk for the kids.

3 BD Getaway in Encinitas near Moonlight Beach

  • 5 of 5

Nicely maintained 3 bedroom condo a block from a great Encinitas Beach. Easy walk to all that downtown Encinitas has to offer and convenient to the train. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and a very functional kitchen made the stay a pleasure. Surprisingly quiet considering area.
