About the property

Sleeps 14 With 7 Bedrooms And Two Kitchens Right Across From Moonlight Beach!

This gorgeous, contemporary beach house is ideal for walking steps to the famous Moonlight Beach and shops of the most iconic Southern California beach town, Encinitas in Northern San Diego. The house is across a cul-de-sac from this very popular, renovated beach area that looks like a scene from a movie. The playground, volleyball courts, beach bonfires, snack bar, and rental area are just a few yards away. Fantastic beach and ocean views are from the large living/dining/kitchen area and master and 2nd bedroom.

Most beach houses in San Diego are on a very high bluff but ours is easy access to the beach on a sidewalk and two blocks from the main shopping street and train station. Truly an ideal spot for a vacation and close to the highway for the short drive to the Del Mar Racetrack, Lego Land, San Diego Zoos, Sea World, and downtown.

This home is furnished it with mostly Pottery Barn and William Sonoma furnishings in a Modern/Beachy decor. Everything is new. All our rooms have brand new, high quality bedding and big murals on the walls. The bathrooms are all stainless steel and glass tile with high end fixtures. There are two main living areas with full kitchens and top of the line appliances. The TV room has a huge sofa that can fit 6-8 people can lay down in front of the 70 inch TV. There is also a large 55 inch TV in the living room and master bedroom. All the rooms have air conditioning and heat (rare in beach houses). There are two patios with ocean views. One on bottom the floor has lots of palm trees a grassy area, a hot outdoor shower, a large circular sofa set and a double daybed from Pottery Barn, a dining set for 10 and a barbecue and you can walk right out to the beach. The other is on the second, living room level and includes a counter height bar/dining set for 12 people perfect for sunset viewing. There is garage parking for 2 cars and 2-3 cars in the driveway.

This is a great house for large families of all ages! Little kids will love the park and older kids will love the volleyball and beach access and everyone will have a great time at the bon fires. Older adults have easy access. The house is often used for Corporate and Wellness Retreats. There are also tons of activities at the beach: yoga, drum circles, tennis courts, restaurant, surf rentals, concerts, street festivals, surf lessons and day camps. A car is not needed. You can walk 2 blocks to the main street shopping and hip restaurants or take the train straight to downtown San Diego or LA and don't worry about driving home. This home truly has everything you need for a memorable vacation.

This property is also very popular for corporate off-sites and retreats. There is plenty of room and seating for group presentations, great Wifi and unique group activities nearby to make your trip unforgettable.

You will love it!

About Estee Gubbay

We live 20 minutes away in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. I manage this property as well as a long term luxury rental and facilitate women's workshops and retreats at our Moonlight property, Our Rancho Santa Fe property and around San Diego.

Estee Gubbay purchased this villa in 2014

Why Estee Gubbay chose San Diego County

It has the perfect location and it is very new and modern with lots of bedrooms and baths! The view is fantastic. The house is where all the action is and its an easy walk to and from the beach. No stairs like the bluff homes! The lifeguards, first aid, concession stand, and rental stand are all right across the street. The best coffee and pizza in town is 2 short blocks away or .2 miles. The Historic 101 highway and shopping "main street" are also two blocks away.

What makes this villa unique

I am a luxury traveler and know what is needed for an exquisite experience. I also have kids and have decorated the home to appeal to kids through executives. My business is producing and facilitating workshops and retreats, so if you need help with your corporate or self development retreat, I am available to you!

Concierge services, private tours, massage, private chef/catering, workshop leaders, group events and activities, excursions, transportation (such as airport transfers/mini bus rental with driver), pre-supermarket shopping and extra housekeeping. etc, can also be arranged, at a rate of $50 an hour.

Thanksgiving week at this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Family trip for a week to Encinitas and loved staying here. The house is laid out really well, plenty bathrooms and space. Two kitchens. Spent most of our time upstairs though. Beds were very comfortable with good comforters, pillows. If you are going to do much cooking recommend bringing some of your own spices and favorite pans or serving dishes. Property is well maintained and was very easy dealing with the owner. Great view from the patio and upstairs dining table. The location is fantastic. Can walk across street to the ocean and also can walk to the town of Encinitas. There are many great restaurants right there in Encinitas. Recommend Taco Stand (lunch), Maurizos (dinner) and

Swamis for breakfast or lunch. Highly recommend!

Fantastic accommodation for our corporate retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early March - set up was great for our 8 business partners - with good meeting space, lots of rooms and facilities. Location to the beach was great. Estee was extremely helpful and accommodating with arrangements for dinners and activities - everything went off without a hitch making for a very successful and enjoyable retreat

Real Californian experience.

  • 4 of 5

The house is super spacious, many sitting areas inside and outside, and is located right at the beach, what allows to be in the house and enjoying the view from the beautiful balcony but also it's a block away from the beach.

It's amazing that it is standing separate from other properties and every room is very comfortable and equipped with essentials but also AC.

Great isolation do not allow any noise coming from other rooms.

Just perfect place to spend holidays, reconnect with friends and family in a very luxurious environment.

We had the best weekend ever!

Relaxing wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family loves Moonlight beach and this rental is in the exact perfect spot (there are not many opportunities to be almost right on the beach - but you are close enough without major stairs in this home). Beautiful house with ample space and everything you might need to make your vacation simply amazing. Thanks Estee for all your help and flexibility - we had the best time!

This home was wonderful for our extended family of all ages. The location was just as described in the listing - as close as you can possibly be to the beach without actually being on it. The house was clean and modern and is exactly as pictured on the website which isn't always the case we have found in the past. The accessibility to town, restaurants and the beach was perfect. Estee was always available if I had any questions. We loved the ease of being close to activity without needing our car all the time since we had young adults and small children that we didn't want to drag in and out of the car regularly. We took advantage of surf lessons, kayaking tours, restaurants, coffee shops and ice cream shops in Encinitas and totally enjoyed our family vacation. I would recommend this home to most anyone. If you are looking for a secluded get away this may not be for you but we loved it!!

Moonlight beach home

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't have been better. From the upstairs patio we were able to watch the ocean. What a treat! We consisted of 13 adults ranging from 18 to 85. All of us had a comfortable place to sleep and use of the bathroom. We mostly ate in, and the house being equipped with two kitchens, made the job easy.

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities. We had a small drainage problem in a couple bathroom sinks, but we easily took care of it. I would recommend his property to my friends and my relatives

Encinitas is known as the yoga capital of the U.S. Some of the biggest yoga movements in the country got their start in this laid-back coastal town. Paramahansa Yogananda completed his Autobiography of a Yogi on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean here in 1945, giving birth to a spiritual legacy that continues to thrive through the Self-Realization Fellowship. And in 1975, David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff brought Sri K. Pattabhi Jois to this beach town in San Diego County on his first trip to the United States, essentially anointing Encinitas as the birthplace of Ashtanga in America. Jois returned many times over the course of two decades and called Encinitas his American home. Opportunities to find sanctuary here are many. Tim Miller, the first American to be certified by Jois, runs the Ashtanga Yoga Center in neighboring Carlsbad, where students can choose from a variety of classes or do an independent Mysore-style practice. This year, the Jois family opened Jois Yoga, a studio that aims to become the Western counterpart of the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore. Just down the highway is the internationally known Chopra Center for Wellbeing, which offers workshops on meditation and holistic health. Fun Fact: There’s a surfing spot in Encinitas known to surfers around the world as “Swami’s,” after Paramahansa Yogananda, whose Self-Realization Fellowship Temple sits on the cliff above.
