A Great Time was has by all

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been more happy with the place and the wonderful little town. We spent our evening outside with the fountain and fire pit on an occasionally dipped in the spa. The beach overlook was a five minute walk and we saw the sunset there almost every night. Shaun, the owner's Son, was extremely helpful if we had any questions. And the dogs LOVED it. My girlfriend and I who actually rented it had numerous friends come at different times of your three week visit. There was plenty of room for everybody. The town was very quaint and everything was walkable.

My family, dogs and I just had a magical stay at this property!

Coming from the snowy mountains to this beach side home was stunning.

We enjoyed the friendliness of the local people, boogie boarding, surfing, riding bikes, running on the beach, sunsets, the nearby botanical gardens and admiring the neighborhood landscaping and architecture.

This property has brilliant land and hard-scaping lending towards a comfortable outdoor lifestyle with fine touches. The home is modern, functional, clean and the property owners are extremely accommodating.

This was a brilliant family holiday home that we hope to revisit!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

The home was in a perfect location - close to the beach and downtown, yet quiet and relaxing! The home was tastefully decorated and an amazing use of space! We had two families staying there and it never felt too crowded. There was tons of common space and gorgeous outdoor living space with plenty of room to spread out! Loved the jacuzzi and outdoor fire pit! You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Great house and location!

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing place for a family gathering! The house is in a great location, everything was clean and ready when we got there. Unfortunately it rained our first couple of days but after the sky cleared up, we really utilized the outdoor space, one of the main reasons we selected the property. It was great to be able to walk to downtown Encinitas and just a couple of blocks to the beach or the overlook to see the sunsets.

Sean was very responsive whenever we had questions and showed us how to use the grill, fire pit and hot tub. Some other reviews had commented on the noise from the upstairs apartment. I agree that you can definitely hear the plumbing and them moving around up there from, particularly from the dining room and the back bedroom, but you'll find that in any sort of apartment or condo living. Our only other comment is that we would suggest a little better selection of everyday drink ware. There were plenty of wine and martini glasses but for standard beverages throughout the day, there were about 8 plastic cups and one pint glass. I guess it's all what you're used to though.

All in all, we were really happy with the property and the service, so much so we're inquiring about rebooking!
