Property type apartment

About the property

Private retreat with many amenities and only two easy blocks to beach access.

Located in charming Leucadia (a section of Encinitas, California) and only two blocks down Neptune Avenue to the Grandview Beach access, this "very private" vacation rental consists of one large living/ bedroom combination and one bath. The living room/bedroom opens to your own "covered" outdoor kitchen and outdoor living area surrounded with flowers. The spaces are part of a residence and have a separate entrance.

Enjoy sitting around a cozy stone fireplace with hearth and warming gas log. Or go up to your ocean view deck and enjoy the sunset or read a book. The kitchen counter area is all under cover, as is the granite breakfast bar adjacent to it. (Also adjacent to the kitchen, there is a warm water rinse-off shower for after the beach!)

This rental has easy freeway access, short walking distance to not only beach accesses but to a grocery store, restaurants and shops. This is a perfect place to begin and end a day if you venture out to do and see all that the San Diego area has to offer. There is also Coaster train access to Solana Beach, Old Town and downtown San Diego and the station is only 2 miles away in downtown Old Encinitas.

The large bedroom can be configured with one comfy king bed, two twin beds or as a daybed with twin trundle beneath. In the latter configuration, the daybed can be used as a sofa for a living room and the trundle for a guest or third person; or one of the twin beds can slide beneath the other for day use. There is a dining space in this room too.

Need more space or additional sleeping quarters? We've got that covered! AN ADDITIONAL SMALLER BEDROOM CAN BE ADDED. Please see our listing VRBO #84396 for complete rates and to reserve this option. Reserve for 31 days without increase in monthly rate and 10% tax will be waived. Quote will be adjusted accordingly when reservation is accepted.

About Sheryl and Bob Chase

Bob Chase and I, Sheryl Chase, have lived in the residence since 1999 and have had the short term rental unit operating since about 2003. In 2010 we remodeled the bathroom, added the large outdoor kitchen with granite breakfast bar and the outdoor gas log fireplace with hearth.

We love this area of Leucadia and it's a perfect place to just drop out. One could find it easy not having to drive much of anywhere with restaurants, the beach and even a little grocery store close by.

Sheryl and Bob Chase purchased this apartment in 1998

Bob and Sheryl are the nicest hosts I've ever met! The home is in a PRIME location for great restaurants and beach access. We had a great time and hate to leave!

Great beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great beach stay. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Having said that, we are walkers and everything we needed was within two miles. Great little grocery half a block away for fresh fruit and incidentals. Great restaurants nearby, Fish101 and Pannikin Coffee for croissants and coffee in the am.

The property was gorgeous. We divided our time between the outside living area, the beach (just a few blocks away) and the shops and restaurants. Having been a VRBO owner in the past I would recommend this property to my friends and will return to it in the future.

It met our expectations.

We loved our stay there. The owners were very friendly and thoughtful and the location was ideal. It would have been a five star vacation if the weather had been better.

Wonderful landlords

  • 5 of 5

I had an extended stay at Bob and Cheryl as it was my temporary abode while my townhouse was being renovated. Bob and Cheryl are excellent landlords, very professional and respectful of their guests. Great place near the beach (you can walk two blocks down to it) without the clutter and messiness of being right on the beach.

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. Everything was very clean and in excellent working order. The owners met us when we arrived to give us a tour and answer any questions we may have had. The location is fabulous. All restaurants, shops, and THE BEACH are in walking or biking distance. For sure we will stay there again when visiting that area.
