About Rebecca Burnett
We are a family of 5 children who love to travel the world and spend each summer in a different country. We are passionate members of the vacation rental community and love to share our homes as we stay in other's homes all over the world. We have met many families and have enjoyed welcoming many repeat guests back to our properties as hosts.
Rebecca Burnett purchased this House in 2014
Why Rebecca Burnett chose Encinitas
We were so fortunate to buy a rare coastal property by Moonlight Beach. They hardly ever come on the market and there are so few homes near our family's favorite beach. This property is a duplex with the top unit, The Flat having 4 bed/3 bath and the lower unit, The Terrace having 4 bed/5 baths. It has great flexibility for large family gatherings in both units. When our family stays in one of the units, we still welcome guests in the other although we prefer to offer it as a whole to guests.
What makes this House unique
This is one of the few properties located in walking distance of Moonlight Beach (3 min). It has the flexibility to sleep up to 20 people. It's also a great property where a car is not needed. Moonlight beach is a local's favorite with everything you would expect from a Southern California Beach including beach rentals, snack bars, clean modern bathrooms, showers, Playground area and world famous sand volleyball. All just a short 2 block 3 min. walk away. We also have great parking with the property which is rare at the beach.
Minimum age of primary renter:25

Awesome weekend stay!
The property was excellent, and in such a great location! Walking distance to the beach, and to great restaurants and bars in downtown Encinitas. The place was clean, had plenty of amenities, and was perfect for a large group. Highly recommend!
This is a great location for a large family. Walking distance to the beach and downtown areas. Only reason for overall 4 stars is the lack of some kitchen items-only 1 set of hot mitts for the 2 kitchens and no dish towels that we could find. Also, the knives are horrible and there aren't many coffee cups. Otherwise fantastic and many beach amenities are provided-kids' sand buckets, boogie board, chairs, and beach towels.
Thanks for staying. I'm so sorry you were not able to find the kitchen items you needed. I wish you would have contacted me. Both kitchens are very well stocked with all the above items and are typically easy to find. I examined both kitchens after this review and found plenty of coffee cups, dish towels, oven mits etc. I did replace the knives so there are new knives, but everything else looked in order. Wish you would have let me know.
Moonlight Beach Retreat
Our group found Rebecca and her Moonlight Beach VRBO a wonderful experience! The place was clean, beautifully updated with a lot of beach equipment available for us to use! Rebecca was available and responded quickly to any concerns we had. I would highly recommend staying here!
Our family had a great time, quick walk to the beach, great food like NAPIZZA and shopping. The property comes with a couple chairs so you don’t have to over pack there. Only complaint is really the train but the noise isn’t even terrible would definitely recommend.
Great location for large families
We had multiple families celebrating Christmas together in San Diego and we really enjoyed the duplex aspect since we had two babies with us. It let the families with the young children have a quiet separate space and adults that stayed up later had another place to hang out. The location can't be beat. It was great to make a cup of coffee and walk down to the beach to drink it in the morning. We also walked all throughout the neighborhoods, the main street in Encinitas as well as up and down Moonlight Beach and Swami's. The inside of the house is newly renovated and everything was very clean. Everyone had beds that were comfy, no one needed to sleep on a sofa or air mattress and they provided Pack n' Plays for infants, which was appreciated! The exterior of the house could use some love for the price point: ie loose carpeting on the stairs to the upper unit which people slipped on, cushions on patio furniture were dirty and completely torn to the stuffing and we weren't able to sit on them. But all in all, we had a wonderful stay. Rebecca was great to work with--always quick to respond and easy to get in touch with. This is by far the best option for large groups this close to the beach. I would highly recommend this rental!
Kids loved the beach and the accommodations.
Disappointed one bathroom didn't work but it was a very close walk to the beach. Wonderful weather!!
Loved having this family as guests. All bathrooms worked. Downstairs has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as advertised. There is a 5th bathroom downstairs off the laundry room we keep locked for supplies. It’s not advertised and this is the bathroom in question. We do not advertise it and keep it for personal storage. This guest asked about the locked door and when I explained it was an extra bathroom we keep locked, they wanted it.
Fantastic beach location in North San Diego County. Steps to Moonlight Beach, voted best beach in San Diego County. Just 1 minute from 1-5 freeway, and a short walk to Encinitas Train Station (the Coaster) and restaurants and shops on Hwy 101. This location gives you the option of traveling south to Seaworld, Old Town and the Zoo all 20-30 min drive, or North to Legoland (15 min.) to Disneyland (50 min.) Truly an undiscovered area of San Diego with the best rated local's beach which was recently renovated and has all the attractions of a typical southern California beach including san volleyball courts, snack bars, new kid's playground, modern clean bathrooms and shower areas. All just steps from your front door. Enjoy listening the the sound of the ocean lull you to sleep at night.
