About the property

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

This luxury air conditioned 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. Beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler and cart are conveniently located in the shed under the deck. Plenty of locked storage space to store surfboards and bicycles.

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 Encinitas

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.

Beautiful property steps from Moonlight Beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property overlooking Moonlight Beach. The property is just as nice as it looks in the photos and is very clean. It has been thoughtfully designed for vacationers and is well stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. Sleeping with the windows open and listening to the ocean is lovely as are the sunsets viewed from the balcony. The hosts are gracious and responsive to questions,

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
San Diego International Airport
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.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $500
Cleaning Fee $200

Minimum 7 day stays during 2016. 5% discount for multiple weeks.

Check-In Time is 4:00 PM. Check-Out Time is 10:00 AM

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.
