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.

Christmas 2017

  • 5 of 5

Once again an amazing Christmas with our family! We stayed at this remarkable home Christmas 2016 and enjoy our stay so much we decided to do a re-book for Christmas 2017! This home has incredible ocean views and sunsets from the second floor, the ambiance throughout created the perfect timeout for our family. Appealing features included: The large dining area and gourmet kitchen that was well equipped was perfect. The luxuriously appointed master bedroom and bathroom, balcony with ocean views. Two additional upstairs bedrooms also had balconies & ocean views. The beautifully landscaped private backyard was relaxing – the gas fire pit, barbecue, and large spa made our evenings complete. Anh the owner contacted us prior to our scheduled visit – Thank you John and Anh! Carol the property manager graciously met us at the property and did a complete walk through and updated us with the new features since our last visit. Carol made us feel 100% comfortable and made herself available to answer any questions – Thank you Carol. The Short walk to the beach made the property even more desirable.

Lovely house with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Our guests really enjoyed staying at the house. It was clean, comfortable and inviting. We used it as a gathering place, and it worked out quite well. The owner and property manager communicated frequently to make sure everything was ok. The backyard landscaping is lovely.

Perfect home for large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed staying here very much! Plenty of room for us all to come together or spread out. The pool table, ping pong table, dart board, hot tub and board games kept all ages entertained. Comfy beds, especially the temperpedic in the master suite, let us all sleep well. The huge kitchen was fabulous for preparing large meals and gathering together. The location was ideal for fun as well, close to the beach and town.

I would recommend this home for your next vacation! You'll have a great time!

Beautiful and comfortable! TONS of space

  • 5 of 5

Great view and location, traffic was loud but it didn't bother our group and wasn't noticeable inside. Layout suited our group well! Property was clean and well-maintained; property manager was kind and personable. We most enjoyed the large outdoor dining table and adapted our plans to eating at the home more often than at restaurants! Part of our group spent the first two days in the area at close! We all enjoyed running to and on the beach. Part of our group went down to Torrey Pines to hike as it is one of their favorite places. Great location, close grocery stores, beach parking pass was great to have though a little tricky as our group had more than one car. Overall: highly recommend and would stay there again!

The house is well appointed, the grounds are lovely and well maintained. .

  • 4 of 5

This a perfect house for a large family gathering. The ping pong and pool tables are great for a little family competition while the hot tub and fire pit are conducive to relaxing after a hard day at the beach or wherever your daily adventures take you. There is no lack of kitchen cooking and serving pieces. Did I mention the beautiful view and easy access to the beach? The property manager is a dear person and most helpful. The only reason I gave the house four stars is the lack of beach towels and extra towels in general; wash cloths and hand towels and dish towels. Also not much in the way of extra paper towels and toilet tissue. All this is odd because the house is so welcoming and comfortable in every other way.
