Welcome to 'Paris on the Beach.' I'm Loretta Marie and I'm so happy you found me on VRBO. Ever since I was a small child growing up in Southern California amongst a wonderful, large family, I always loved going to the beach. Unfortunately many of those beaches were the flat, heavily populated type like Santa Monica in L.A. and Huntington and Newport Beach in Orange County.
But the flat, crowded beaches of LA and Orange County would become a thing of the past as I came to discover Encinitas with my older brothers during a small surfing trip.
When we first drove up the hill on Old Highway 101 near La Costa Ave., I immediately fell in love as we entered the Encinitas coastal area and so I knew right then... that I would some day live in this beautiful town.
Encinitas felt like 'Hometown USA on the Beach with towering eucaliptus trees, unique shops and reataurants, and with a laid back, Hawian, North Shore kind of feel. The beaches were amazingly beautiful with large bluffs, two large lagoons, and of course it boasted incredible waves. I knew right then and there that someday soon, I would return to live here.
So a few years later, I came back to start my college years in north coastal San Diego and have stayed here in the Encinitas area ever since; enjoying all the water activities, restaurants, and it's terrific, small town beach atmoshphere.
Loretta Marie purchased this house in 1985
I chose to purchase this wonderful duplex property because it was located only 5 houses to Stone Steps Beach and near the ever popular, Moonlight Beach. It was the most charming beach home I had ever seen with each home having it's own unique style and amazing outdoor living spaces that make beach living so wonderful.
When I first entered the property, I was taken by the amazing yard that was virtually hidden from the street. The secured entrance gate and fenced in yard allowed tremendous privacy and a tranquil setting that made me immediately feel like I was on a relaxing vacation. The large, beautiful coral tree, grass, and charming alcove patio area made me never want to leave. I became even more surprised when I realized the property had another completely separate home with another private yard that was equally impressive and each with it's own unique style that felt like home in each their own way. I immediately put in an offer and ultimately became a homeowner for the first time making my beach front living dream come true. To this day, it is my favorite place to be and is where I spent the rest of my years with my husband while raising our three beautiful children. Recently, we made both homes of the duplex vacation rentals (VRBO # 479554 & 480169) so that they could be enjoyed throughout the year by family and friends as we began to travel and do home exchanges with friends in Europe. Recently, I came to realize that this wonderful beach property should be shared with even more wonderful folks who could also use a well desrved vacation at the beach. I felt it was implortant to provide all our favorite games and beach equipment so that travelers and friends would only need to pack their clothes and a bathing suit.
Although my family has traveled to many far away places throughout the world including the incredible sites in the streets of Paris, France, our favorite place has always been right here in Encinitas at our very own, 'Paris on the Beach.'
I can not tell you how happy it makes me feel to share this wonderful home with you, my next guest, at the beautiful, 'Paris on the Beach.' Enjoy...
My family of 4 had an amazing time at Paris on the Beach! The pictures really don't do the place justice. It was so cozy and peaceful. It was also laid out really nicely. We opted for the 3 bedroom so the kids had one side of the place and we had the other. Very quite for us! We also love the hot tub! We used it every day. Being so close to restaurants and the beach was wonderful. Can't wait to go back!
Our family had a lovely time at this property this summer. The house was nicely decorated, clean, well appointed, and best of all super close to the beach. The deck area was beautiful and lovely for entertaining and was generously furnished with ping pong, outdoor cooking areas, lots of boogie boards and surfboards and loads of towels. Our teens were able to walk to the beach, get the train to downtown San Diego, and access shops and coffee all in walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, proximity to the beach and Loretta was a graceous host answering all of our questions. Well be back!
I had a group of 10 people stay here for Labor day weekend and we had a fabulous time. The house was wonderful, the patio was great, and the vicinity to Stone Steps beach is AMAZING (about a 1 minute walk) from the front door. Loretta is very gracious and easy to work with! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful spot right near the beach!
We have been staying in Mission Beach for the last 5 years for little beach getaways. This April we had a hard time finding one and booked this gem in Encinitas. I was a little nervous as really didn't know what to expect. The pics were great, but you never really know if they match up. Yes! They did! The house is roomy and has everything you need for entertaining. We were either at the beach or in the house. The outdoor area is what makes it so grand. I spent 95% of the time there. The pingpong table kept my kids entertained for hours! Loretta is helpful and relaxed. Love the proximity to the beach! Encinitas is a little more family friendly than
Mission. Looks like we have a new place!!
My family and I stayed in this home last year. Upon arrival, the owner was still trying to clean it up. It was extremely dirty and smelled. The Jacuzzi was green. The owner lives on the premises, but fails to disclose that in her advertisement. She was constantly in our face and very nosy. The furniture outside is very rotted and when one of the children leaned on a stand it broke into. The bedroom furniture was also the same, and a futon bed broke. We decided to leave early, because we were so disappointed in our rental. The owner refused to compensate any money back and kept our security deposit. If you are considering renting this house, my suggestion would be to do a walk through first and take the time to meet the owner.
Some friends and I just spent a lovely week in Encinitas at Paris on the Beach. After a day of surfing and enjoying the beach, my favorite time was to come home and jump into the hot tub on the deck area! We spent most of our time on the well equipped deck either grilling dinner, in the hot tub, reading, eating around the shaded table, or playing one of the fun board games from the house. The home is also just a short walk to the beach... what a great place to be at sunset every night! Sometimes we went for a beach stroll, and sometimes we just stayed at the top of the stairs enjoying the beauty! Also, so close to great restaurants! The owner gave a friendly welcome to my dogs! I can't wait to return!!! Thanks Loretta!
