Open to both short term and long term rentals. Extra discounts apply to longer term rentals.

Note: Kitchen, living and dining area is on the 2nd floor to maximize views. There is a flight of stairs (in 2 sections) that total 18 stairs. My 81 year old disabled mother was able to use the stairs- but might be an issue for others.

Likewise, the house is not fully baby proofed. We would, however, consider adding a baby gate and protectors for electric sockets if requested.

Although the beach is only 500' as the bird flies, one has to walk ~ 6 blocks to get to Swami's beach access point. There are many beaches in the area- some of which offer easier access for elderly and those that might have a difficult time with stairs and hills. Moonlight Beach has the easiest access.

Allergies? Occasionally our cat joins us when we are staying here. THe house is very clean- and have not had any problems- but just want potential renters to know ahead of time.

Questions? Just give me a call:)

The property was exactly as described and more.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our Christmas break vacation with our 3 teenage daughters. It was well laid out. All three girls were downstairs with their own bedroom and a living room and the adults were upstairs in the master with the well-stocked kitchen and another living room. Encinitas and the surrounding beach towns were charming with fun shopping and restaurants. San Diego is 20 minutes away (amazing zoo) and the property is far enough north that LA is and hour and 20 minutes away for a day excursion. In LA we laughed watching people taking pictures stomping on Donald Trump's star on Hollywood Blvd. Someone (not mentioning who-eh.hem...husband) accidentally left a roll of cash in the master bedroom and we were credited the money toward our stay which was a huge blessing not to suffer the loss and we are very grateful.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review. Tell your silly husband that he is welcome to come back any time. lol I am sooo glad that the last renters let me know of the money they found in the dresser drawer. It's reassuring, especially in these days, that there are really great, honest people out there. Have a wonderful New Year.....Libby

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our mini vacation in this beautiful home. The photos don't do it justice. It is immaculate inside, the views of the ocean are stunning and the location couldn't be better. We stayed there for 4 days with our good friends and their three kids and had a wonderful time and although there were 4 adults and 4 kids in the house we felt great and we all had privacy and enough bedrooms to acommodate all of us:-). I coukdn't recommend this lovely home more!

Perfect from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

This is the only place I would stay on a visit to the San Diego Area! It has gorgeous views - sunrise or sunset; close proximity to town (shopping and dining options galore) and beaches. The property is very well maintained; lovely furnishings and well stocked. The beds and bedding are fabulous - I didn't want to get out of bed the first morning there! There is an upstairs (main floor) living room and a downstairs living room too - in case you are looking for a little alone "down-time"! Highly recommend this place if you can get it on your next vacation!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property exceeded every other rental we've ever stayed in! Of course, the ocean view was beyond amazing but in addition to that, it was clean and so well equipped and obviously loved and cared for by the owner! We will definitely stay there again.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The ocean views and sunsets were absolutely amazing! The home was luxurious and spacious with a very well stocked kitchen and incredibly comfortable bedrooms. The second (main) floor was fantastic with an open area allowing everyone to be together. The location was perfect for being able to walk to town and also very close to many beaches. This place was perfect!

Incredible Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The wonderful ocean views, even in a rainstorm was serene and breathtaking! The spacious kitchen and dining area overlooked the ocean so we spent a lot of time together in one area. This property was among of our favorite rentals ever! We had the best time! Thank you!
