About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This charming beach bungalow was built in 1942 and it resides in a soulful tropical yard in the best neighborhood of Encinitas. The yard and home speak of relaxation but the ocean beckons. The living and dining areas are open and accommodate a family gathering comfortably. Each bedroom has a queen sized bed with closet and plenty of storage. There is also a third bdrm. with a comfy queen sleeper sofa.

The remodeled galley kitchen is a chef's dream with granite counters, stainless appliances, six burner gas stove and complete drawer of spices for gourmets. The dining area seats 8 comfortably and a trifold door opens onto the deck overlooking a large tropical yard which is incorporated into the living area. There is a BBQ and outdoor shower on the side patio, and parking is on the street. The property is shared with the constant gardener and hubby who live in the cottage at the back of the large yard, they are very friendly and helpful if needed.

It's all about the beautiful ocean here but for variety you can take an early morn walk to the Pannikin for a cup of coffee and danish,then take the train north to Disneyland or south to the Del Mar race track and downtown San Diego. If you don't want to cook, a short walk to Vigiluccis fine Italian is nice or go downtown Encinitas for a wide variety of restaurants, night life, shopping and you can take in a movie at the classic La Paloma theater. Encinitas has an awesome botanical garden and the zoo, wild animal park, Sea World, Balboa Park and museums are all great day trips.
