Great house and location!

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing place for a family gathering! The house is in a great location, everything was clean and ready when we got there. Unfortunately it rained our first couple of days but after the sky cleared up, we really utilized the outdoor space, one of the main reasons we selected the property. It was great to be able to walk to downtown Encinitas and just a couple of blocks to the beach or the overlook to see the sunsets.

Sean was very responsive whenever we had questions and showed us how to use the grill, fire pit and hot tub. Some other reviews had commented on the noise from the upstairs apartment. I agree that you can definitely hear the plumbing and them moving around up there from, particularly from the dining room and the back bedroom, but you'll find that in any sort of apartment or condo living. Our only other comment is that we would suggest a little better selection of everyday drink ware. There were plenty of wine and martini glasses but for standard beverages throughout the day, there were about 8 plastic cups and one pint glass. I guess it's all what you're used to though.

All in all, we were really happy with the property and the service, so much so we're inquiring about rebooking!

Great property, it provided all the comforts of home and made our stay very enjoyable. The well designed backyard with fire pit, grill and hot tub added a special place to relax and enjoy, after coming back from a day of fun and sightseeing.

A wonderful dog friendly beach house getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely beach vacation rental! Place was even more charming than the photos. Proximity to the beach was great! We Brought the dogs along for the trip and they had a blast. The highlight of the place for sure is the cozy backyard. We opted to stay in quite a bit just because if the great grill, fire pit, and hot tub! Owners son was very nice and respectful of us. The one small downfall is you do hear a bit of upstairs noise in the master bedroom since they do live upstairs but you can tell they really try to minimize the disruption and it's a small price to pay for everything else positive about the place. The location of place can't be beat either. So close to great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops in encInitas. We would love to come back again. We stayed for a couple weeks and felt they had everything we needed to make ourselves right at home. I wouldn't hesitate to rent here anytime! Thanks again for an awesome getaway!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We came to Encinitas to celebrate baby Gus 1st birthday. Anne and Mark you have a beautiful home very richly appointed. The back yard is exactly as pictured and the fountain was a delight. The walk to the beach is easy and the beach is great! The kitchen has everything you can imagine and then some. Thank you Anne and Mark for sharing your home. We called Sean 2 times and he reponded immediately. We couldn't figure out the tv-didn't think to check that the box was plugged in. Will stay again if the Navy keeps the Commander in San Diego.

Wonderful home in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We booked very last minute and Sean was so accomidating. We stayed 5 days and never had any issues. The home was clean and well kept. They had all the amenities anyone could ask for. I would have to say my only disappointment would be the beds in the spare rooms were not all that comfortable for adults. The master bed was perfect. We spent quite a lot of time outside on the back porch. It is definitely a huge bonus with this rental. Easy walk to beach and they do offer beach gear and such. Would definitely hope to stay again.
