Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom 1 Bath; Very Close To Moonlight Beach And Downtown Encinitas.

New for summer 2016 - Air Conditioning! It is getting warmer on the coast. We installed air conditioning so that our summer visitors will be more comfortable!

This luxury 2 bedroom/1 bath guest unit is located steps from Moonlight Beach and in the heart of Encinitas. Attached to a multimillion dollar home: this compact unit is on the second floor, is charming, well decorated, very comfortable, and has its own private entry. It is both private, with an orientation away from the main house, and in the midst of the active 'beach life'. Relax on the deck with spectacular views of Moonlight Beach and the ocean. There are beautiful granite counter tops, new appliances, stone and marble walk-in shower, full sized washer and dryer, three flat screen TVs and quality furnishings and linens. The living area contains a full size pull-out sofa bed. Deck includes a bar height table and chairs for dining, deck chairs for the morning coffee, a barbecue and is ideal for people-watching and enjoying the sunset. Private parking for two cars eliminates the hunt for parking at the beach.

Moonlight Beach is one of the most popular beaches in California and Encinitas has been named one of the 'World's 20 Best Surf Towns' by National Geographic. Moonlight Beach is very family friendly and with bathroom facilities and concessions. This guest unit is so close to the beach that if you forget anything or want to change clothes, you are just a couple of minutes from your vacation home.

Being on the south end of Moonlight Beach it is also ideally located only three to four blocks to the downtown shops, restaurants and the Coaster train service. Walking to and from a nice restaurant in the evening is a treat.

If you are looking for a comfortable place to relax and to spend time enjoying the weather, ocean and amenities of beautiful Encinitas then this is your spot. All amenities needed for your stay are included. Spend the day at the beach then enjoy the views from the deck while firing up the BBQ!

About Kristine Price

Encinitas is my hometown and I grew up in the home directly north of this property. My parents built their home on one lot and their patio on the other. They also planted the Star Pine tree in front of their home that has become an Encinitas landmark and is decorated every year. We built this home on the 'patio' lot in 1986 and raised our children here.

Kristine Price purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Kristine Price chose San Diego County

In 2012 we renovated the guest unit to create a spot for the family to use for vacations. We redesigned the unit, put in quality materials and furnishings so that it would be a comfortable and fun environment for a beach stay for our family. It brings back fond memories to all who stay here.

What makes this apartment unique

The best benefit is the location - a combination of view and how close it is to the beach and the downtown area. Although compact in size it has been thoughtfully re-designed and renovated to make the best use of space.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at this property! Close to everything, but the best part was the beach. Our boys (8 & 13) loved the location and the boogie boards that were provided. Clean and cozy, this home had everything we could possibly need. The beds, extra pillows, and especially the A/C were nice to come home to after a busy day. I would highly recommend this property. Thanks to Kristine and Ken for allowing us to use your special space.

This was our second stay at this property and we had another great vacation. The location can't be beat in terms of beach and downtown access. The apartment is clean and well appointed. We loved the bottles of wine and pastries that welcomed us. Thanks again!

Amazing stay at Moonlight Beach!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Moonlight Beach and loved the apartment. It's close to many restaurants and shops but most importantly the beach. The location and view couldn't have been better. We took the train downtown and attended a Padres game (amazing stadium), Old Town, and Seaport Village. It was super easy and a fun way to get around. The train station is 3 blocks away. We also enjoyed going to some of the luxury theaters in the area, (Del Mar and La Costa) what a treat. Some of our highlights were sailing with Captain Kevin Rickon from Sail San Diego, watching our boys jump into the ocean at Sunset Cliffs, watching the horses race at Del Mar racetrack, and kayaking in La Jolla near the cliffs. All in all San Diego was the perfect place for our summer vacation. We stayed in the apartment for two weeks and were very comfortable. My family consists of 2 adults, an 11 year old, and two grown boys of 15 and 17. One of my boys slept on the pull out bed in the family room and was very comfortable. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and we were very happy with the quality of bedding, towels, and furnishings in the apartment. The reason I didn't give the apartment 5 stars was because of the lack of air conditioning. The temperature in the apartment would never go below 79/80 and if anyone showered or did laundry the temp would reach 85. We had the fans running nonstop and even went home to get another one to try to help cool the place down. With North and East facing windows only we really didn't get much relief. A portable air conditioning unit in the summer would make this place perfect!!!! All in all we had a fabulous time and loved every minute of our stay and hope to visit this lovely apartment again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Hi Kimberly We are so sorry that the heat was such a problem. Our next guest noticed that the internal heating system with the central fan was on when they arrived so we think that it may have been on during your stay, which would have compounded the problem. It is a quiet system so not easy to notice. But of course the weather has been getting hotter on the coast and though the room fans and sea breezes have normally been enough to keep it cool, we may have to consider installing air conditioning. Too much heat is no fun. We are glad that you still were able to have a great time in our special little spot. Take care and come again! Kristine Hi Kimberly - just wanted to let you know that we heard you about the heat and we are adding air conditioning in the unit this spring so that our summer visitors will have a "cool" place to return to after that fun day at the beach! Kristine

Car: recommended

Must see in Encinitas is the San Diego Botanical Gardens (year-round). In nearby Carlsbad: the Carlsbad Flower Fields (spring-time) and Legoland. In San Diego: the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and Sea World. There are many other attractions- too many to list.

During 2017 the unit will be available only for monthly stays due to our distance from the unit and inability to care for weekly visitors. We hope you understand. The rate for a summer month is about the same as if you were to stay two weeks with our current weekly rates. Monthly eliminates the TOT tax as well. It is a good buy if you have more time to spend at the beach.
