About Lisa Hansen
We are a family of four and we like to spend time at the beach, camping, skiing, swimming, and traveling whenever possible. We have lived in Encinitas for almost 20 years and just love everything about it. We enjoy meeting new people that share the love for our little beach town and surrounding areas.
Lisa Hansen purchased this Studio in 2012
Why Lisa Hansen chose Encinitas
Our property is very unique. It is close to everything - the beach, shops, the freeway (but not too close) and yet it is very private. We have the most amazing street - it lined with old trees and views of the ocean to the west and the valley to the east. Encinitas has many great places to experience, and our little neighborhood is one of them!
What makes this Studio unique
There are so many things to do in our backyard - literally and figuratively! You can go to the beach, visit the botanical gardens, the Hwy 101 shops and restaurants or the Self Realization Center, then come back and sit by the pool to enjoy the view and watch the hot air balloons in the afternoon, have a drink, read, relax, and then visit out of our amazing local restaurants for dinner. The perfect getaway!

Cozy Convenient Getaway
The property is neat and well maintained. Any requests or needs were addressed promptly by the on site managers. This is the smaller of two listings on the same property. The Pool House is small, but very comfortable. The Lanai looking over the pool and view in the distance is charming, and really makes the listing work well for a couple of friends or a couple. It would make an excellent place for an au pair or grandparents if rented with the big house. Lisa and Greg could not be more helpful and accommodating.
perfect little pool house
My son and I stayed here for 3 weeks and I loved everything about it! Such an amazing property with even more amazing people. The owners were so kind and quick to help out and make sure we were satisfied with every aspect of our stay. The location was very close to the beach and many stores (Target, Trader Joes, etc.) that it just felt completely ideal. Seriously though, we had the best time and I can't wait to get back.
Quiet - Serene Getaway ... Totally Chill Out! 😀
Lisa and Greg are awesome hosts! We can't say enough about how good a job they do. Communication - EXCELLENT Location - EXCELLENT Furnishings - EXCELLENT
they really have it dialed in, even small things you may not even think of... Are there. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and it's only about 8 minutes from the beach, the neighborhood is quiet and safe for walking, jogging, biking. And if your a dog lover "Kitty" there standard poodle is an awesome ambassador.
Oh an FYI...I forgot a couple of personal items, they packed and shipped them to me... That is great service! We definitely want to stay again!!!
👍👍👍👍👍👍 THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Quiet. Just what I needed. The kitchen has nearly everything one needs. Even a french press!
Everything went well. At first, I was not sure if I was in the right location, but I arrived late. The beach house was quiet and just right for me. The morning view was beautiful. The location was great as there are stores nearby such as Trader Joes and Sprouts. As a road cyclist, I could just get out and ride be it coastal or Elfin Forest. The location, layout, and amenities were all accurate. The bonus snacks were welcomed and didn't last long. The only thing it was missing was a can opener; it has one now :P - I will probably stay here again. One could not ask for a better relaxing location. Considering the books and the yoga mat, it would have been interesting to have met the owners.
WHAT A PLACE!
You can't find a better place to stay. the guest house is small and cozy and has every amenity you need. The owners, Lisa and Greg, are super helpful and available whenever you need them. The location is perfect as you aren't IN San Diego but close enough to be able to drive there every day if need be, and the traffic was never really bad. The guest house was super quiet and exactly what we were looking for on your babymoon. Thank you so so so so much for your hospitality!
Awesome property and hosts!!!
We were so impressed with Greg and Lisa's lovely pool house/guest house!! From the great directions on where to park to the thoughtful details (bisquit, blanket and bowls for our little Yorkie and bottle of wine a chocolate bar for us!), everything was taken care of. We felt so comfortable. The view is stunning and Encinitas and surrounding beach towns are charming and relaxed. It's also just a short drive to San Diego for a day trip but far enough to be away from the crowds and traffic. We will definitely be coming back for another long weekend getaway in the future. Thanks Greg and Lisa!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We loved having you and are very hopeful you will return with Boo! :)
Encinitas is a Spanish name meaning 'little oaks'. It is a coastal beach city in San Diego County, California. Located within Southern California, it is approximately 25 miles (40 km) north of San Diego in North County and about 95 miles (153 km) south of Los Angeles. The largest single industry in the city is the growing of ornamental flowers, particularly poinsettias. Encinitas has a very mild, Mediterranean climate. Average daily high temperature is 72 °F (22 °C). Temperatures below 40 °F (4 °C) and above 85 °F (29 °C) are rare. Average rainfall is about 10 inches (250 mm) per year. We are in a great location that is close to the I-5 freeway. We live on a quiet street that is perfect for walking. All the chain stores are within 2 miles: VONS, Trader Joes, TJ Maxx, Sprouts, Chipotle, Target, Barnes and Noble, and many Starbucks. In addition there are many local restaurants that are great for quick, healthy meals or fine dining. We are about 10 minutes to the gate of Legoland, 30 to the San Diego Zoo, and 40 to the Wild Animal Park. Our beaches are fabulous, each one unique with local flair. Driving to the beach is recommended, but if you like walking and don't mind hills, it is less than 2 miles. If you want to experience San Diego without the hustle and bustle of being in the city, Encinitas has a lot to offer.
