Best choice for SoCal vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of two adults and two children, vacationing in Encinitas for 5 weeks. The condo fully lived up to our expectations. Upon arrival it was clean and tidy. It had everything you needed for a short or long stay, from BBQ, beach towels, boogie boards, sun chairs, to board games and books. The condo complex share a pool, and this was well kept and clean.

Located within 5 minutes walking from Moonlight State Beach this is the perfect location. 'Downtown' Encinitas is just 3-4 minutes walk away, with all the stores you need. We found it very convenient to be able to walk to the local grocery store (Whole Food). The local library is located across the street. We used the library for home schooling for our kids. Right behind the condo comple is a small park, with a playground and a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. Halfway towards Moonlight Beach there is a larger playground.

On our first day the caretaker dropped by to introduce himself. He was available anytime, which was proven when the garbage disposal in the sink broke. This was taken care of immediately and promptly fixed. The same when the garage door decided not to open anymore, fixed at once.

The train station is 3 minutes away with schedules south to San Diego or north to LA. The only 'drawback' with the location is the blowing of the horns by the traindrivers as the trains pass. We were aware of this prior to renting, but was still surprised at how hard and long they actually blow the horns. So take this into considation when renting. That being said, we would not have any problems renting this condo again.

Encinitas is very close to Legoland, the Safari Park, San Diego Zoo, Carlsbad Outlets, Miramar Air Station, and miles and miles of beaches for surfing, swimming, exploring or just relaxing.

There are several restaurants in Encinitas, as well as coffee bars, and a movie theatre.

Every Wednesday there is a Farmers' Market at the train station, and here you can get your hands on excellent food.

Hopefully we will be back, and able to rent this condo, in the future.

We had a great time staying in the Encomiums property. We loved the community. A special thumbs up to the pet owners who utilize the dog park - I (and my dog) went to dog park 1-2 times daily for 3 weeks - never once did I see a "poop pile". Good work. The only problem I had with the property was Wi-Fi, maybe that is because a 73 year old doesn't have the know how needed. Jackie and Carol were very good to work with. I don't give out perfect scores so this is a strong 4.5.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month and a half over the holidays. It's a 2 minute walk to many restaurants, bars, 7-11, the local library and a great dog park. A 5 minute walk to the beach. We BBQ'd several times on the back patio and used the fully stocked kitchen. We would highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a fully equipped 2br, 2ba. Jackie and Carol you were wonderful and very accommodating with our needs, we are so thankful!

Two wonderful sunny weeks in Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our condo. It was everything the owner represented and more, location is fabulous. 1/2 block to the beautiful public library where they provide full range of services to temp residents including wonderful collection of DVD movies. Across the street from Coaster Station for easy access to down town. Encinitas is a lovely resort village with georgious beaches and quaint restaurants. I did 5 mile morning walks along the walking path to Cardiff & back which runs parallel to the beach enjoying watching the surfers. We made day trips to Balboa Park, Old Town, and Coronado. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the porch, curled up with a good book on comfortable cousioned chairs and couch in the afternoon sun. The condo is well provided with all cooking and kitchen utensils and a brand new gas grill on the rear patio. Beds were very comfortable & unit was clean & tidy for our arrival. We entertained one single and one couple as over night guests (separate nights) who slept on the family room sectional- they all reported a comfortable nights sleep. Unit needs better lighting for interior reading, but that is the sole criticism anyone in our group offered. One of our favorite avtivities was stroling down to the yogurt shop about two blocks away for a treat. Handicapped or seniors who do not handle stairs well should probably avoid this unit and seek one on ground floor.) Highly recommend the complex and Encinitas. (we were two senior couples in our seventies).

The PERFECT Solution to winter in New England

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to a 3-foot blizzard that was very poorly timed, our vacation was cut short by 2 days so we made very good use of the time we had. Carol's condo is beautifuly appointed, very comfortable and homey yet locatted right in town. I'm not a coffee drinker but FM loved walking down to the train station kiosk every morning for his coffee. The beach is a 5 min. drive, the shops/restaurants are a 5 min. walk. We won't waste any time booking for next year.

Carol, thanks so much for your hospitality!

Great value and exellent location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our christmas week in encinitas. Very convinient location we can walk to Wholefoods, good restuarants, beaches and public transportations.The house is spacious and clean, fully equiped kitchen, a lot of natuaral lights especially in the Master bedroom during the day. Although we would prefer a better light to bringthen up the house at night. Carol is very nice and flexible. Jackie always available to answer the your phones. Recommened!
