The Jasmine Beach Cottage was featured on the 2015 Encinitas Garden Festival and Tour! This two bedroom, one bath beach cottage sleeps 5 people and is located in the heart of Old Encinitas. The tranquil village atmosphere is the perfect vacation spot for a couple or small family. You can walk to Moonlight or Swami's Beach, shop the unique stores on Hwy 101 or dine at amazing local restaurants. The cottage was recently renovated and is beautifully decorated. It sits on a large lot that features exquisite outdoor spaces including a beautiful deck with outdoor dining, a relaxing seating area with a gas fire pit and beautiful landscaping. There is even a cedar wood sauna for you to enjoy! This amazing home is the perfect retreat with charming décor, comfortable beds, a fully equipped high end kitchen, and proximity to beautiful old town Encinitas and beaches. It’s also a great spot to explore all the attractions of San Diego, about 25-30 minutes’ drive to the south. The home includes a large flat screen TV with cable, Netflix, and high speed Wi-Fi. This beautiful coastal beach city in San Diego County, California is approximately 25 miles (40 km) north of Downtown San Diego and about 95 miles (153 km) south of Los Angeles. The La Paloma movie theater is a reminder of Encinitas' rich history, going back to the 1920's. The downtown area has remained unique, with the best of classic and modern. Dine at a fine restaurants, grab a taco, a locally made beer, or enjoy tasty vegan food. The Hwy 101 has it all, but with a organic grocery stores close, you might want to just relax at the cottage. World class beaches, San Diego's top tourist attractions, and international transportation are all close. But, once you discover Encinitas, you might never want to go anywhere else.

About Lisa Doliva
We have the travel bug! Traveling or sailing is where you'll most likely find us if you can't find us tending to our garden. We love the idea of sharing our cottage and Encinitas with fellow travelers.
Lisa Doliva purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Lisa Doliva chose Encinitas
We moved in and remodeled the entire cottage and grounds. It was a labor of love and we were able to transform it into a showcase property. When we were asked to be on the Encinitas Garden Tour this year, it was a proud moment!
What makes this Cottage unique
The Encinitas Highland is one of the area's most sought after neighborhoods, as well as one of the oldest in Coastal North San Diego County. It's close to beaches, great restaurants, and shopping, but still in a quite family neighborhood setting.

Cozy and beautiful cottage in excellent location!
Thank you Lisa and Mark!! You have a beautiful house and it came equipped with everything we could possibly need. Exquisite grounds and walking distance to town and the beach made this home an ideal vacation get-away. Thank you again!!
We spent 10 fabulous sun filled days at The Jasmine Cottage. The cottage lived up to all of the reviews and descriptions. Lisa and Mark are great hosts and thought of everything to make our stay one of the most relaxing experiences we have had. The amenities are similar to a luxury hotel but with all the comforts of a cozy home. We hated to leave but know that we will be back.
Amazing Outdoor Space
Great, clean, well thought out place with wonderful amenities for adults and children. The small touches--toiletries, coffee & pancake mix, games, and beach toys and equipment--made our trip that much more enjoyable. We were able to cook a lot and enjoy our meals in the back yard. The grill, fire pit, and sauna are amazing! Thanks for your hospitality, Lisa!
Great location, we didn't use our cars the whole time. Walking distance to the beach & main town. We loved the property so much we mostly relaxed at home after the beach and BBQ! Lisa was a fabulous & very thoughtful host!
An enchanting garden and delightful cottage
We enjoyed our mother-daughter time at the Jasmine Cottage. Drinking our coffee and stretching in the enchanting garden was the ideal way to start a morning.
Surfing, boogie boarding, picnicking, beach-walking and sunbathing provided the ideal combination to perfectly relax our muscles and bodies.
The kitchen was perfectly equipped for all of our cooking needs. The sofa and day-bed a great place to read.
Falling onto a cloud and sleeping like babies is how comfortable the bed and linens are.
I felt like I could live there contently forever!
Loved the Jasmine Cottage!
We recently stayed at the Jasmine Cottage for an extended weekend. It was beyond lovely! The Cottage is perfect and has everything you would want, but didn't know you wanted until you needed it! Stocked coffee and spices, all the TV stations (March Madness was on!), bocci ball, board games, beach stuff...EVERYTHING! Did I mention the grounds? So much to enjoy! We had a great time and Lisa and Mark seemed happy to help every time we bothered them with a question. We can't wait to come back!
