Overview

About the property

Unique Custom Home in the Best Location in Encinitas (3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom)

Remarkable beach home on exclusive ocean-front Neptune Avenue. Best location across from ocean vantage point and only a short walk to Stone Steps beach access. Highly upgraded with bamboo and rustic reclaimed wood floors, gourmet kitchen, custom lighting, unique glass block shower in master bath, and an amazing office with custom built-in cabinets and desks. Upstairs master bedroom and office open to a large ocean view balcony. Rinse off after the beach in the outdoor shower.

Neptune Avenue is well known in this area and for good reason. It is the perfect location for a beach getaway. You can walk to the beach, to restaurants, to the famous Pannikin Coffee Shop, to downtown Encinitas, and so much more. Villa Neptune is on the best section of Neptune Avenue (family friendly and great neighbors)! The closest beach is a locals beach, called Stone Steps with no parking lot (so it doesn't get too crowded).

Hop on the cruiser bike that is provided with a surf rack and explore the local surf spots. Beacons beach is very close as is Moonlight, Grandview, Swami's, Pipes, and many more. If you have children in your group, Legoland is a 10 minute drive away. Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, and the Wild Animal Park are in the area as well. I also have a babysitter available for a parents night out.

About Stephanie Pena

We have been here since 2001. I have 3 children and a dog. My kids and I have walked Neptune countless times and have spent most of our summers walking to Stone Steps, the local beach, to play, boogie board, and surf. I am a mechanical engineer transitioning to become a teacher so that I can continue to spend summers with my kids at the beach.

Stephanie Pena purchased this house in 2001

Why Stephanie Pena chose Encinitas

This is a unique, custom home which has a peaceful, beachy feel about it. It has top end appliances, outside shower, and many other custom features. Neptune is a very social street. Our front yard faces west and is a great place to bar-b-que, relax, and watch the Neptune 4th of July parade go by.

What makes this house unique

Great beach house. All the comforts of home. Walk to the beach and restaurants. Take advantage and have a night away from the kids, my babysitter for the last 5 years is available this summer for babysitting jobs.

Way better then expected

  • 5 of 5

The pictures were okay but we picked the house for the location in Encinitas. The house turned out to be adorable with cute spaces for kids to hide and play, plenty of places to sleep and the comforts of home. We made dinner nightly and sat on the upstairs or downstairs deck. The area was always busy with friendly people and the beach steps were nearby. Thanks Stephanie for all the extras (bikes, games, books, movies. We will be back!

Great location and beautiful house.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. The house is very clean and organized. The house was one block from Stone Steps Beach. We would love to rent this house again.

Great Neptune retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Both of us felt so fortunate to have found this vacation rental available for our California stay. We had two previous rentals and they could not come close to this one!! It was exceptionally clean, great design interior and exterior, incredible balcony off second floor

bedroom - we loved it!! Very close to beach access - as well as to downtown Encinitas shops and restaurants. We will be coming back to this location.
