About the property

Perfect Family or Corporate Rental w/2 Family Rooms & Kitchens, Steps to Beach!

This gorgeous, contemporary beach house is ideal for walking steps to the famous Moonlight Beach and shops of the most iconic Southern California beach town, Encinitas in Northern San Diego. The house is across a cul-de-sac from this very popular, renovated beach area that looks like a scene from a movie. The playground, volleyball courts, beach bonfires, snack bar, and rental area are just a few yards away. Fantastic beach and ocean views are from the large living/dining/kitchen area and master and 2nd bedroom.

Most beach houses in San Diego are on a very high bluff but ours is easy access to the beach on a sidewalk and two blocks from the main shopping street and train station. Truly an ideal spot for a vacation and close to the highway for the short drive to the Del Mar Racetrack, Lego Land, San Diego Zoos, Sea World, and downtown.

This home is furnished it with mostly Pottery Barn and William Sonoma furnishings in a Modern/Beachy decor. Everything is new. All our rooms have brand new, high quality bedding and big murals on the walls. The bathrooms are all stainless steel and glass tile with high end fixtures. There are two main living areas with full kitchens and top of the line appliances. The TV room has a huge sofa that can fit 6-8 people can lay down in front of the 70 inch TV. There is also a large 55 inch TV in the living room and master bedroom and free WiFi. All the rooms have air conditioning and heat (rare in beach houses). There are two patios with ocean views. One on bottom the floor has lots of palm trees a grassy area, a hot outdoor shower, a large circular sofa set and a double daybed from Pottery Barn, a dining set for 10 and a barbecue and you can walk right out to the beach. The other is on the second, living room level and includes a counter height bar/dining set for 12 people perfect for sunset viewing. There is garage parking for 2 cars and 2-3 cars in the driveway.

This is a great house for large families of all ages! Little kids will love the park and older kids will love the volleyball and beach access and everyone will have a great time at the bonfires. Older adults have easy access. Everyone can gather on the beautiful patio and enjoy the view of all the activities on the beach and surfers in the ocean waves. So close you can see and call in your kids on the beach from the patio! The house is often used for Corporate and Wellness Retreats. There are also tons of activities at the beach: yoga, drum circles, tennis courts, restaurant, surf rentals, concerts, street festivals, surf lessons and day camps. A car is not needed. You can walk 2 blocks to the main street shopping and hip restaurants or take the train straight to downtown San Diego or LA and don't worry about driving home. This home truly has everything you need for a memorable vacation.

This property is also very popular for corporate off-sites and retreats. There is plenty of room and seating for group presentations, Free Wifi and unique group activities nearby to make your trip unforgettable. We can even plan your retreat agenda, book speakers or office space two blocks away.

You will love it!

I am easily available for your questions or any help you need with your stay.

Estee Gubbay purchased this villa in 2014

Why Estee Gubbay chose San Diego County

It has the perfect location and it is very new and modern with lots of bedrooms and baths! It is the only house with an additional family room with full kitchen and large patio with BBQ. You can have the kids hang out there or hire a cook in the separate kitchen! The view is fantastic. The house is where all the action is and its an easy walk to and from the beach. No stairs like the bluff homes! Dont be fooled by their ocean views because you'll have a hard time getting to the beach and it will be black at night. Our view has EVERYTHING going on at the beach plus whitewater views and accessibility. The lifeguards, first aid, concession stand, and rental stand are all right across the street. The best coffee, pizza, sandwich shop and ice cream in town is 2 short blocks away or .2 miles. The Historic 101 highway and shopping "main street" are also two blocks away.

What makes this villa unique

I am a luxury traveler and know what is needed for an exquisite experience. I also have kids and have decorated the home to appeal to kids through executives. My business is producing and facilitating workshops and retreats, so if you need help with your corporate or self development retreat, I am available to you!

Concierge services, private tours, massage, private chef/catering, workshop leaders, group events and activities, excursions, transportation (such as airport transfers/mini bus rental with driver), pre-supermarket shopping and extra housekeeping. etc, can also be arranged, at a rate of $50 an hour.

Pretty much as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, great location and owner was very accommodating and helpful. Owner was quick to answer questions via text and it was just a really nice stay. Just make sure that when you book the place, to read all of the instructions the owner provides...that will help your stay. Lovely house and when we are back in Encinitas and if the house is available, will definitely love to book it!

Great home away from home close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 plus two additional children recently stayed at this property for 5 nights. We chose this home because it was very close to our friends whom live locally, but it really turned out to be the perfect space for our spring break getaway.

This home was the perfect layout for multiple families, but in our scenario it was equally great, giving the older children their own kitchen and spacious hangout area (family room) separate from ours on the upper level. With so many rooms, it's a great option for a very large group, but also for those that don't enjoy being cooped up together in tight quarters while traveling. It was a close walk to the nearby Moonlight Beach and with lots of local shops and great dining options, you don't have to go far unless you want to. The home was clean and seemingly well maintained with no major issues. Estee, the homeowner, was wonderful to deal with and super prompt to respond, though fortunately we didn't need her during our stay, except to add an additional night and extend our trip. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely suggest this home for your next trip to Encinitas!

Thanksgiving week at this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Family trip for a week to Encinitas and loved staying here. The house is laid out really well, plenty bathrooms and space. Two kitchens. Spent most of our time upstairs though. Beds were very comfortable with good comforters, pillows. If you are going to do much cooking recommend bringing some of your own spices and favorite pans or serving dishes. Property is well maintained and was very easy dealing with the owner. Great view from the patio and upstairs dining table. The location is fantastic. Can walk across street to the ocean and also can walk to the town of Encinitas. There are many great restaurants right there in Encinitas. Recommend Taco Stand (lunch), Maurizos (dinner) and

Swamis for breakfast or lunch. Highly recommend!

We stayed here in early March - set up was great for our 8 business partners - with good meeting space, lots of rooms and facilities. Location to the beach was great. Estee was extremely helpful and accommodating with arrangements for dinners and activities - everything went off without a hitch making for a very successful and enjoyable retreat

Real Californian experience.

  • 4 of 5

The house is super spacious, many sitting areas inside and outside, and is located right at the beach, what allows to be in the house and enjoying the view from the beautiful balcony but also it's a block away from the beach.

It's amazing that it is standing separate from other properties and every room is very comfortable and equipped with essentials but also AC.

Great isolation do not allow any noise coming from other rooms.

Just perfect place to spend holidays, reconnect with friends and family in a very luxurious environment.

We had the best weekend ever!

Relaxing wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family loves Moonlight beach and this rental is in the exact perfect spot (there are not many opportunities to be almost right on the beach - but you are close enough without major stairs in this home). Beautiful house with ample space and everything you might need to make your vacation simply amazing. Thanks Estee for all your help and flexibility - we had the best time!

Encinitas is known as the yoga capital of the U.S. Some of the biggest yoga movements in the country got their start in this laid-back coastal town. Paramahansa Yogananda completed his Autobiography of a Yogi on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean here in 1945, giving birth to a spiritual legacy that continues to thrive through the Self-Realization Fellowship. And in 1975, David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff brought Sri K. Pattabhi Jois to this beach town in San Diego County on his first trip to the United States, essentially anointing Encinitas as the birthplace of Ashtanga in America. Jois returned many times over the course of two decades and called Encinitas his American home. Opportunities to find sanctuary here are many. Tim Miller, the first American to be certified by Jois, runs the Ashtanga Yoga Center in neighboring Carlsbad, where students can choose from a variety of classes or do an independent Mysore-style practice. This year, the Jois family opened Jois Yoga, a studio that aims to become the Western counterpart of the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore. Just down the highway is the internationally known Chopra Center for Wellbeing, which offers workshops on meditation and holistic health. Fun Fact: There’s a surfing spot in Encinitas known to surfers around the world as “Swami’s,” after Paramahansa Yogananda, whose Self-Realization Fellowship Temple sits on the cliff above.
