Really nice, well located place

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well appointed. Beds are very comfortable. The beach and downtown are walkable. The outdoor patio is great too. The owner is very accommodating. When I made a mistake with my reservation, Julie said, "I want to make this work for you", and she did!

Nice quiet retreat for 2+

  • 4 of 5

This second story 2 bedroom "villa" is a very clean, contemporary apartment. It is fairly well located. We walked to town for restaurants and shops and it is not far at all from the beach.

Beds are very comfortable. The street is quiet especially at night and other than the occasional train whistle 2 blocks away it allowed for a good night sleep.

Only one bathroom, so if traveling with another couple, take that into consideration. Also, I misunderstood and thought the villa had AC. While we were in town it was warm but overhead fans did help keep the rooms manageable. Very lovely outside patio that is featured in the pictures. If back in Encinitas, we would be happy to rent this space again.

Beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Spent the long weekend here with my family and we absolutely loved it! The house is beautifully put together and it's perfect for 4 people (ideally two couples as it has two big beds). The patio was lovely – very comfortable and with a nice fire-pit that kept us warm during the colder evenings. Would definitely recommend it and would love to go back!
