About the property

Spanish Casita Guest House on an acre of a private estate

The newly and tastefully decorated custom built casita has one very private bedroom, one bath compete with 48' smart flat screen entertainment center, cable TV and 100 MB internet that enables you to watch your favorite shows on Netflix and listen to 1000's of artists on Pandora at no additional charge.

Perfect and peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casita was great! The view, the house, and most importantly the peaceful atmosphere of the place was exactly what we were looking for.

We were a little bit worried about the kennel nearby but we barely noticed the barking of the dogs.

All in all, a great place to rent.

Great location and beautiful casita!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay put most the time, but the location of this home is ideal for sight-seers and beach-goers alike. Encinitas is a lovely beach town with adorable shops, convenient markets, and plenty of restaurants. All of the amenities were thoughtful and generous, including the limes from your tree for homemade margaritas! Thank you Mac and Trisha for extending your home to us and our pup Lucy! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

inviting casita in Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this Casita recently while visiting our son, daughter and her family in the area. It is in the heart of Encinitas but secluded and quiet which was a treat for us after spending all day with our 4 grandchildren. The living/kitchen area is equipped well, very comfortable furniture and light and airy with a great canyon view on the entire back side of property. We had a few small things that needed repair but the owner was prompt and thorough in getting them taken care of.. My husband has a disability so the large walk in shower was easy to access and use as well as being beautiful. Great closet space too. Tastefullly appointed and you can tell that the owners are meticulous in regards to maintaining the property.

Beautiful setting for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Tricia and Mac have created an oasis perfect for a relaxing getaway. So close to the beach and all that a coastal town has to offer, yet so private and relaxing. We could not have asked for more. Beautiful and cozy casita with incredible views.

Lovely oasis in the hills above Encinitas

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely casita perfect for a quiet getaway. Great canyon view, quiet and secluded-feeling but only a short drive to the beaches and shopping.
