Encinitas also boasts one of the prettiest public golf courses around – Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, with magnificent ocean views and breezes.

This is a family home, built by our great uncle. We have made many memories in this home and want to continue to do so. Come make your own memories.

Perfect Beach Cottage!!
It was very clean and neat, plenty of space for belongings, and very well maintained.
Large washer and dryer- great for washing all of our clothes, towels and beach towels.
Very comfortable beds! Awesome towels- big and soft! Great linens and lots of blankets- tho we didn't need them as it was unusually warm that week.
And even w/o AC, the cottage stayed reasonable cool in the afternoon and the nights and mornings were perfect due to the ocean breezes flowing constantly up the hill and into the garage/newly finished carpeted rec room. We placed the fans into the hall to draw the cool ocean breezes thru the house. And there are ceiling fans in ALL 3 bedrooms.
Plenty of places to stretch out "do your own thing"- we could be visiting in the living room while another was sunbathing on a comfy lounger on the deck or patio while another was watching tv in the rec room or master Bdrm or napping in another Bdrm. And the eating spaces are awesome- we ate breakfast at the cute roomy breakfast nook and lunches and dinners at the incredible trestle table with tons of VERY comfy seating! We used the very large, very easy to use gas grill on the deck for most dinners.
The owner is always available to answer any questions. I would DEFINITELY recommend this property to friend or relative, in fact, we plan on coming back as often as we can!!
The kids enjoyed the beach everyday- within walking distance. They went surfing, rented wave riders, went kayaking, we went shopping of course, ate out a couple of times (tons of great restaurants). got carry-out couple of times, everyone must have a California burrito from Lourdes, at least once.
All in all, the week went too fast and we were sad we had to leave!
From the Owner
