Great location, clean and cozy. Very well maintained home had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home and were thrilled to be able to bring our dogs. The home was roomy and bright and had a beautiful patio up front to enjoy your morning coffee. A beautiful sunset awaits you everyday just a 2 min walk away. Thank you Galyn and Dave

Encinitas, CA

wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

my group of girlfriends rented the house for a ladies weekend, and it was lovely! right near the beach, lots of space, clean and quiet. my only drawbacks were that we were told very emphatically that there could be no noise outside after 10pm and there were no instructions for the firepit or hot tub (the hot tub wasn't that hot, for example). other than that, we had no complaints and would stay there again!

Lovely, comfortable house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this Leucadia house. My husband and I stayed here with our two toddlers (ages 3.5 and 1.5) for four nights. It's a very comfortable place, great for kids and adults alike. Lots of space, a beautiful well-equipped kitchen and even beach chairs and other stuff to borrow. It's down the street from several great beaches. We really

enjoyed Moonlight Beach.

We will definitely stay here again.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home in a great location!

From the well-stocked beach supplies, wonderfully equipped kitchen to the fantastic outdoor area---our every need was met. The property owner/managers could not have been more interested in providing whatever we needed and ensure we had a good stay. The house is just a block from 101 and a block to beach access and close enough to walk the few blocks to Moonlight Beach if wanted. There are coffee shops and restaurants also within a 3-4 block walk. By car downtown Encinitas is about 2 minutes. Great location.
