Pristine, peaceful, charming

  • 5 of 5

Bill & Dana’s carriage house is just right for one or two people. It is like new and has a full kitchen, garage, huge TV. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and they have a beautiful piece of Encinitas!

Luxury accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The suite was first class, the hosts were kind and generous, providing an absolutely clean, quiet home away from home. Bill and Dana did their absolute best to ensure our stay was, on a scale of 1 - 10, a perfect 11.

Sandra and I will return on our next visit to the San Diego area. Thanks for everything!

If you're looking for rest and relaxation in a beautiful place, look no further!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Dana have created an absolute treasure in lovely Encinitas. Their guest house is so tastefully furnished and sits on such a tranquil and beautiful piece of property. My husband and I stayed here for three days last summer (2016) and we told ourselves then that we are definitely coming back. We kept our promise and this time spent an entire week and it was just as perfect as we remembered. Bill and Dana are wonderful hosts and I can't say enough good things about them and their place. You will not be disappointed one bit!

This unit sits atop a detached garage in an elegant semi-rural neighborhood in the foothills of Northern San Diego County, about seven miles from the ocean. It is light, clean, spacious, and private, with every amenity, from the 72-inch TV to the chef-worthy kitchen. Guests have access to the pool, spa, and outdoor barbecue. The property is surrounded by lovely foliage, and is one of the few places on earth where you will find palm trees, pine trees, and eucalyptus in the same zone. The hosts, Bill and Dana Ziegler, are endlessly helpful. If you want quiet, comfortable elegance away from the urban bustle, this is for you. A car is essential, and the place is suitable only for one person or a couple.

Wonderful vacation casa and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely location with a spacious casita that was light, well furnished and well stocked (even wine, fruit and cookies). While the setting is very peaceful, you are very close to the beach, etc.

Our hosts, Bill and Dana, were terrific and we felt at home, more so because they showed us so many considerations. We hope to see them again and so very much appreciate their kindness. In sum, we highly recommend this VRBO!

We originally visited in August and came back again this April. We had a wedding to attend in Escondido and it was a perfect retreat. Thank you for your hospitality!
