Lovely, spacious home & wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has enjoyed several VRBO homes over the past several years & we all agree this was one of the BEST! Plenty of beautifully decorated space, inside & out, for the 10 of us.

Plus, Helen, the owner, was a delight to communicate with before & throughout our stay.

If ever heading back to SoCal, we would love to stay there again.

Thanks so much to Helen & family

Great for family time

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I hosted our son and daughter-in-law as well as two grandkids celebrating birthdays in the Encinitas area. We selected this property for it's convenience to the beach, attractions in the area (legoland) and it's kid friendly feel.....and we were not disappointed. Having the high chair and pack n play available made for easier travel, and the spacious house with kid friendly amenities (books, crayons, videos, beach toys....) and the large yard gave he grandkids plenty of things to do and space to play. For the adults, the BBQ, and outdoor eating space, not to mention the hot tub, was ideal for catching up and enjoying each other's company. Helen was a gracious host and very responsive to questions we might have. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the area with children.
