Overview

About the property

A Tranquil, Charming Cottage Retreat offering low allergen environment

We recently finished building a state-of-the-art home with a private, separate cottage on our property. Our all concrete, eco-friendly construction offers polished concrete floors with radiant heat floors (think warm feet), and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, cooking and dining supplies. Gas cooktop and double ovens. Healthy water purification system means you can drink right out of the tap with peace of mind and includes toxin-free showering and bathing. We use only organic, biodegradable cleaning products. If you need a clean, non-toxic environment you found the right place. Our lovely little cottage is bright, quiet, offers coastal breezes, and a space where you can retreat, read, and write. Private outdoor area for reading, eating and soaking up sun. Please email us by clicking on "Contact Owner" in box below or CALL ME DIRECTLY. If you select "Request to book" in yellow box to right to use your credit card online, you will be charged an online booking fee by VRBO.

We are located a short walk (three blocks) from Swami's State Beach. Downtown Encinitas offers shops, art galleries, over 30 restaurants, boutiques, and gourmet coffee cafes within walking distance. Lazy Acres has a new store nearby on Encinitas Blvd. The Coaster stops in downtown Encinitas. For hikers we have San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve and the Torrey Pines State Reserve nearby. For shoppers the Cedros Avenue Design District is to the south in Solana Beach and to the north, is the Carlsbad Premium Outlet stores. There are many attractions in San Diego County. Legoland, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Wild Animal Park, Downtown San Diego Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and Coronado Island. Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm is located about one hour north on I-5. We are three blocks from Scripps Memorial Hospital and right off Santa Fe Drive (border between Encinitas and Cardiff by the Sea).

Cottage is limited to two persons. We have bikes, beach chairs, beach towels and beach mats for our guests to use. We would like to offer you a warm welcome to Encinitas and a healthy, happy stay with us!

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach for surfing or simply, long beach walks. From down the street you get sweeping ocean views, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets. Encinitas is your sweet Southern California coastal town that is very laid back and full of vibrant charm. We have water purification system for both drinking and shower.

A true home away from home!

We loved everything about the cottage! The owners provided a beautiful and relaxing environment while thinking of everything one could possible need during their stay. I can also attest that the coffee provided was as delicious as previous reviewers noted. Looking forward to our next stay!

An absolute treasure in Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute gem and Steve and Brenda are great hosts! They have thought of every amenity a guest could possibly need. The cottage was sparkling clean and upscale, including the appliances. The location is ideal--only a short walk to the beach. This was one of my favorite vacation rentals in every way. Thank you Steve and Brenda -- I hope to be back soon!
