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.

Relaxation and Fun! Our family had a wonderful time at this comfortable, beautiful beach house.

  • 5 of 5

The outdoor living space of this property was perfect! Plenty of room to relax, prepare BBQ dinner and enjoy the perfect weather all in a paradise like setting. It worked having the house manager in a separate upstairs apartment as he was very careful to not make himself seen but to attend to anything we might need. The home is well appointed with all one might need on vacation and in a perfect location to walk to some of our favorite Encinitas locations!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Anne and Mark's home! Sean was super easy to communicate with, and though he lives upstairs, we only heard him a couple times coming and going. He respected our privacy completely! The house had everything we could possibly need for our stay and we felt right at home. The back patio area is an absolute dream! The fire pit was something we definitely took advantage of and were so glad to have since the weather was cool and gray most of our trip. We loved that the house was so close to the beach and to all the shops and restaurants in Encinitas! Would definitely recommend this gem to anyone...we absolutely want to come back to Encinitas, and will certainly book this house again!

Centrally located, secluded paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house was impeccably clean and beautifully furnished, we felt right at home during our visit. The plants, trees, fountain, bbq/bar and fire pit in the back yard made us feel like we were at our own private resort. The grassy and flower covered alley way behind the house was the perfect place to let our dog run a little before putting him on leash and walking the beautiful streets of LeucadIa. We were just minutes on foot to the beach, with in walking distance of convenience stores, restaurants, bars and shops. The Coaster station was only about 5 min away by car and gave us the perfect way to visit down town. We'll definitely be booking here again for another trip!
