We celebrated my sisters 60th birthday here and had an amazing time. The house is so much larger than the pictures show. Standing in the main floor living area looking out the back patio to the expansive ocean view reminded me of being on a cruse ship. Plenty of parking,even in August near a popular beach. Huge well stocked kitchen. We cooked many meals here and it never felt crowded or like we were bumping into each other. The master bedroom was luxurious and spacious (however, the jacuzzi was set right on the edge of the deck with out any wall so be careful not to lean backwards!) Laundry in the main house, the Casita and the studio was a plus, stocked with soap. The upstairs loft (lovingly called "the crows nest" ) was very spacious with 3 comfortable twin beds, large ocean view patio, bathroom and closet. It was very quiet and private there. The home is 2 houses from the beach, stocked with sand toys,beach chairs and umbrella. It is close to some shopping but the main town of Encinitas is a few blocks away. None of us wanted to leave, we had "beach house withdrawls" for weeks after. Such a memorable trip, I cant wait to go again.

The photos on this page obviously give you a pretty good idea of what to expect, but you’ll probably still be blown away when you actually walk into the house. The living area is huge and never felt crowded (especially with the addition of the outdoor space) even with 13 of us in residence (including 3 kids and 2 babies). The whole place is extremely clean (window cleaners came while we were there) and well-kept.

The big draw, of course, is the ocean view from nearly every window. We saw dolphins every day for the ten days that we stayed (one pod of over a hundred), seals on several days and eight-or-so grey whales migrating back north to Alaska. The beach very close with a variety of activities available and is very well maintained by the city.

The property also benefits from being so close to downtown Encinitas and Leucadia which are full of shops, bars and restaurants and a 5-10 minute walk away. The station is half a mile away and $11 gets you a return trip to Santa Fe station in downtown San Diego which is walking distance from all of the downtown/port attractions such as the Gas Lamp District, USS Midway, whale watching etc. We only ate out once – at D Street Bar & Grill which was great, and ordered pizza from Manhattan Giant Pizza which was also good. As others have mentioned, grocery stores within walking distance are limited to 7 Eleven and Whole Foods, there is a Vons just over a mile away to the south and plenty of other options within a ten-minute drive including a Costco close to the Carlsbad Outlets.

If you’re travelling with little ones and don’t want to lug all of the equipment with you, we had good luck renting with (cribs, sheets, toys, high-chairs, booster seats etc.). They delivered it all and collected at the end of the vacation.

We had a fantastic vacation here: sitting on the patio eating breakfast at dawn looking over the millpond flat ocean as the squadrons of pelicans skim just above the waves is certainly an experience to be savored. Just book it – you won’t regret it!

If you are in need of a short getaway as I was or long vacation, don’t hesitate to stay at this beautiful well maintained property. All the comforts of home are at your fingertips, literally, from automatic shades in the master bedroom to the trash compactor in the kitchen. The views are spectacular from every point of this home. The moment you enter the front door you know you have found what you’ve been looking for in rest and relaxation. Everything you need is available for you from shampoo, soap, towels, stackable washer and dryer, hair dryer, iron and board, even hangers. Take advantage of the hot tub on the balcony of the master bedroom. Very relaxing and well maintained. The pool man was servicing the hot tub the day we left for the next family to enjoy. For those of us who love a baday, they have one of those too. Soak in the oversized jetted tub in the master bedroom with a view of the ocean is luxury in itself. The sun deck on the third floor is wonderful as well offering you privacy and seclusion. The third floor is also an excellent place for the kids to call there own as there are three or four beds, a TV and a bathroom along with a fireplace. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal or just a grilled cheese sandwich. Everything is within walking distance from this property. Moonlight Beach is just down the street, Whole Foods Store is a five to ten minute walk from the house. It is pricy, but well worth it as the quality of food is excellent. Plenty of restaurants, little shops, and bike rentals. The Coaster is about a five minute walk from the house that will take you to San Diego. The property manager was very nice and helpful. We arrived late in the evening and after he departed we had a problem with the grill. We called him ten minutes after he left to tell him about the problem we we’re having and he turned right around and came back with no hesitation bringing us a new long neck lighter and even changed out the propane tanks for us. I loved this location and property so much that I’m booking it for a entire month. Thank you Barry for a wonderful and relaxing mini vacation and for all you help.
