About the property

5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath With Ocean Views and 7 person hot tub

This charming beach area Rental is located in the beautiful & adorable surf town of Leucadia, Encinitas. This gorgeous home is fully furnished and decorated, with every necessary amenity for a hassle free vacation including a new 7 person fully loaded Hot Tub. Tucked into a multi-million dollar small private gated community, this is a great location for a romantic get-away, working vacation, or surf & beach family adventure. We are within walking distance to Ponto State Beach & Grandview, both with great surf breaks.

Leucadia/Encinitas is one of the last true surf towns in Southern California with a mix of old and new world charm. It boasts plenty of boutiques, shops, restaurants, and coffee and surf shops. We have a rich art community and classic surf shops mixed with great local taco shops and modern spaces to enjoy food and drink. There are plenty of great local hot spots including: the Pannikin, which transformed the old Santa Fe Railroad station, built in 1888, into a local coffee hot spot with plenty of character and great treats. If you want something within walking distance, the Bar Leucadian is a great venue for live music or a round of pool and is considered a local establishment since 1946. Down Highway 101 you will find Old Encinitas a couple miles away with a plethora of nice bars, restaurants and things to do including the Seaside Bazaar that is held every weekend morning. You can also find some amazing golf courses a short drive away, along with world renowned Balboa Park and world famous San Diego Zoo all within a 30 minute drive. For the kids, Disneyland is only an hour away and Legoland several miles. Close to the beach and easy access to the freeway, this house is ideally located for beach bumming as well as local venturing. We are also right next to the Batiquitos Lagoon, where you can view amazing wildlife in one of the few remaining tidal wetland nature reserves in the southern California. This bird sanctuary is an amazing sight along with the white water view of the blue Pacific Ocean.

Manley experience

  • 4 of 5

Everything was wonderful with a few minor exceptions. Ants were everywhere but mostly manageable with sprays. The towel bar in the master bath was very loose and we did not use it. It needs to be reattached to the wall. Overall, we really liked the home and would happily return. We trust that you found your property in as good, if not better condition, than when we accepted it. Look forward to the refund of our deposit.

The Beach Mansion

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sisters, and their families came into San Diego to celebrate the marriage of my son to his lovely bride with me and my family. I was so grateful to have them with me for this amazing time and am beyond glad that we chose to stay together in Ahn's lovely beach house. The home is just as the photos depict. Roomy, well furnished, and beautifully decorated. It was easy to be together, and easy to have quiet time alone somewhere in the house. My nieces and nephews enjoyed the pool table and ping pong table. All of us fit around the large dining room table to play cards and games, our favorite family activity. We loved the grill and deck. It was a little noisy on the deck during the day due to the road traffic but quieted down after dusk. The kids enjoyed the spa during the day, and the aunts and uncles loved it in the evening. We had several cooks who were beyond satisfied with the roomy and well-equipped kitchen. My older nieces took over the master bedroom bathroom before the wedding and could not stop talking about how fun it was to get their wedding faces on in that space. There was lots of space for fun and laughter filled that space all weekend. Access to the beach was simple. We could get anywhere we wanted to be within a 30 minute drive, including the airport and San Diego harbor.

At the end of the weekend, we all agreed that this needed to become an annual event for our family.

Thanks to Carol for making our stay so beautiful. Check in and check out were seamless. The beach house was clean and in order when we arrived, and we left it like that. Our deposit was returned within 10 days. Ahn was prompt in every communication. The financial and rental agreements were clear and professionally handled.

Ahn, your home is beautiful and welcoming. My mother was impressed with what she eventually called the beach "mansion". She happily enjoyed her children and grandchildren all weekend. That was the most important thing. Thank you for everything.

Fantastic House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Costa Laguna house was fantastic. We were a group gathering near San Diego for a July 4th weekend reunion, and we all thought there was ample space and tons of amenities. We loved using the outdoor space, particularly the fire pit, the hot tub, and the ping pong table. The house is also walking distance to the beach, but if you choose to drive, the house has a beach parking pass. Anh was very communicative throughout the process; I highly recommend this property.

Wonderful large home for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay in Encinitas. The home has four rooms with private bathrooms for all of the adults. That made the trip so comfortable after a day on the beach allowing everyone to get showered and ready for dinner.

Carol was great to work with. Our deposit was refunded immediately. Overall this was a great experience. We look forward to coming back.

I really can't say enough great things about this home. The location was perfect in relation to the Del Mar Arena, where we were attending the CrossFit Regionals. Additionally any store/restaurant/bar/etc were within in minutes of the location. My guests and i immediately felt welcomed and at home from the moment Carol walked us inside. The house is literally stocked with everything you need and all we had to do was make a Costco and Von's run and we were good to go. Most of the days we were away from the house but the second we would return in the early evening we would kick off our shoes, fire up the BBQ and go gather by the outdoor fire pit where we shared laughter and made memories. Thank you so much to John and Anh Rohrbach for opening your home, it was spectacular!
