About Brenda Sampiere

Brenda, mother of 4 kids (within 5 years) and engineer by degree, is wildly detail oriented and loves to share the coastal San Diego area with all guests, especially young families creating their beach memories. Our family has lived in Solana Beach (one town south) since 1993. Our family thoroughly enjoys sharing everything this area has to offer from the beaches, surfing, body surfing, mountain biking, trail running, hiking, shops to the restaurants.

Brenda Sampiere purchased this House in 1986

Why Brenda Sampiere chose Encinitas

We have owned this property for 25 years but recently completely remodeled it and enjoy sharing it with others visiting the area that want all of the advantages of a "home".

What makes this House unique

Excellent freeway access, lots of room to relax inside or out, fabulous sunsets and a huge yard (by California standards anyway!) and pet friendly.

                                                        Encinitas retreat - exceeded all expectations!

                                                        Brenda P. Oklahoma, USA

                                                        This carriage house looked so darling and clean and modern in the pics, I just couldn't resist. And, it did not disappoint! Stayed by myself for a solo girl's retreat and this was the perfect size. I think it would be fine for a couple, too. The decor is bright, light, comfortable, cheery and the list goes on. Felt like a spa! The natural light is great. You can see the sun setting on the ocean each evening from the back door of the property and there is a great little patio plus firepit to enjoy although my visit was a little chilly and didn't get to partake. I needed to do some laundry upon arrival and there are frontloaders in a shared space with the main house--awesome! The kitchen and bathroom were also gorgeous--super modern and clean. Seriously, they have left no stone unturned here--the details are on point. The location is just behind Scripps hospital and minutes from I-5 and was surprisingly quiet. I jetted around the area all week with ease. Close to everything that I wanted to do: San Diego, Chopra Center, Moonlight Beach, Yoga classes, massage, SRF gardens, San Marcos hill country and delicious restaurants abound. The owner was attentive and super professional and you can bet I will do everything I can to come back here again in the near future!

                                                        Everything I was looking for!

                                                        Jacquelyn U.

                                                        I loved staying here. This place was exceptionally clean, and had everything you could possibly need. The host was extremely responsive with any questions I had too. I loved the location - close to beach and close to 5 freeway. Lots of clean towels, kitchenette, beautiful bathroom, and comfy bed. Notes everywhere in the place letting you know what light switches are for what , and instructions for everything. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay.

                                                        A little oasis in Encinitas!

                                                        Samantha K.

                                                        I had the opportunity to book an extended stay in Encinitas. From start to finish this experience was perfection. Brenda was incredibly accommodating and made plenty of suggestions to maximize my stay. The actual quarters were EXTREMELY clean, well appointed and comfortable with privacy and all needs for a relaxing stay. The location is amazing with easy access to the beach, restaurants, coffee shops and a grocery store. Please note that it is a hilly walk so you must be willing to make the hike to town. I did it several times every day and my legs look great (added bonus)!

                                                        I have already booked my next stay for the new year. THANKS!

                                                        My boyfriend, me and his sweet dog had a lovely few days in this little jewel box of a getaway. Brenda has created a small space that somehow feels much more spacious, with everything you need in the kitchen and bath, and plenty of storage. It's freshly remodeled with nice high end touches. The bed is super comfortable, and the property is very clean. The yard is a true bonus - gave our pup a vacation of her own. We BBQed and used the fire pit - perfect. It's an easy walk to the beach, although we got in the car to go to the dog beach, another lovely spot. Overall it was a really wonderful getaway, and we're looking at coming back with our kids and getting both the jewel box guest house and main house next time. Thanks much, Brenda!

                                                        cute, petite place... enjoyable stay!

                                                        We enjoyed our stay. The space was compact (we knew it would be, from the online description). It's decorated beautifully -- bright, clean and refreshing. It was fine for two people... and would be a perfect retreat for one. It was nice to have the backyard. I appreciated the offer of boogie boards, beach mats, etc (free for the borrowing). Walking distance to the ocean, restaurants, and shops is nice!! It felt a little funny (to me) to be sleeping right next to the driveway... and to have those big doors open onto the driveway... Felt a little "exposed" or "vulnerable" ?? but not terrible. We slept well in the comfy bed. Brenda was very kind and easy to communicate with. Thank you for a nice visit to the San Diego area!

                                                        Sweet, petite, colorful and neat

                                                        This place is sweet--tastefully decorated. Clean. Bright. Big backyard. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the ocean. Brenda is kind, helpful and easy to communicate with. If you are planning to cook during your stay, know that the kitchen is simple and small w/a teeny counter. It's perfect for the basics -- has toaster/toaster-oven, hot plate, microwave, small fridge. Some local noise (train in the distance, cars, etc) but bed is comfy and we slept well. Enjoyed our stay and visiting San Diego!
