About the property

San Diego Living at it's best.

Located in one of the best neighborhoods in San Diego

Our house is ideally located west of Highway 101, in a quiet neighborhood with little traffic, one block away from Stone Steps Beach in Encinitas. It is walking distance to coffee shops, many local restaurants ranging from fine dining to bistros and legendary taco shops.

The local Farmers Market is held only two blocks away.

There are 4 bedrooms, one King, one Queen, and one with bunk beds one with a fold out futon couch. 2 bathrooms, one newly remodeled and a hot water shower outside to rinse the sand away.

Outside there are two sitting decks in front and an out door patio out back with a kitchen, jacuzzi/hot tub and gas fire pit to fully enjoy our wonderful San Diego weather.

Leucadia Beach House
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Lovely, comfortable house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this Leucadia house. My husband and I stayed here with our two toddlers (ages 3.5 and 1.5) for four nights. It's a very comfortable place, great for kids and adults alike. Lots of space, a beautiful well-equipped kitchen and even beach chairs and other stuff to borrow. It's down the street from several great beaches. We really

enjoyed Moonlight Beach.

We will definitely stay here again.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home in a great location!

From the well-stocked beach supplies, wonderfully equipped kitchen to the fantastic outdoor area---our every need was met. The property owner/managers could not have been more interested in providing whatever we needed and ensure we had a good stay. The house is just a block from 101 and a block to beach access and close enough to walk the few blocks to Moonlight Beach if wanted. There are coffee shops and restaurants also within a 3-4 block walk. By car downtown Encinitas is about 2 minutes. Great location.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been luckier. This house was perfect for my family and I to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The yard was our favorite spot to hang out as there was plenty of seating around the fire pit and grill. The kitchen was fully equipped which was useful for our stay. The bedrooms/bathrooms were also fully equipped and very clean. Love the Sonos in the house as we could play music throughout.

It's a quick walk to Stone Step beach (1 block away). Be advised of the stairs to get down to the beach (don't forget anything or your buns will regret going up those stairs). Lots of great restaurants and shops nearby. We met the owner and he was very friendly and helpful. Staying at this house and being so close to the beach made our anniversary an unforgettable trip. Thank you and we look forward to staying here again!

Leucadia Home Base!

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a perfect home base for a long weekend reunion with friends in Leucadia. The house is very well equipped and the decks and the yard are great for relaxing. The location is excellent, just a block to beach access Stone Steps and easy walk to downtown Encinitas shopping and restaurants. We had an excellent experience and would definitely stay here again.

home sweet home ...

  • 5 of 5

Although the pics are good for this property, they do not do it justice. This home is loved and loves you back! Everything from the fabulous kitchen, snuggly fire pit & fireplace, cozy decks to the relaxing bedrooms. Our 4 day weekend was not long enough. We loved whether we woke up slow and took a walk on the beach that is only a block away .. to getting up early and running into town and beyond. Everything is easily do-able from this house! It was great to meet you Dave, and Galyn thank you for being so helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend this rental

Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house looks great from the outside and the look continues throughout. It is very spacious, my favourite room was the kitchen. It has everything you need if you enjoy cooking. If not then there are plenty of lovely cafes/restaurants within walking distance or a 5 min drive. The neighbourhood is quiet and just walk around the corner to the beach to go surfing. Loved the yard its a great space for kids to play. It's equipped with a fire pit which was fab and a big BBQ. We had a great time here and didn't want to leave and will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much Galyn for all your help. Great to meet you too Dave. Highly recommend this rental.
