This is your home away from home! It's the perfect place to get away with family or friends, on a quiet residential street, only 1 mile from the beach. This 3 BR/2 BA dog-friendly house was recently remodeled and furnished specifically for guests. Comfortable seating areas inside and outside let everyone spread out and relax. With wifi, coffee and beach towels to surfboards and beach chairs, the house is stocked with many things that you won’t have to pack or buy in order to enjoy your trip.

The space
We want you to know that we’re doing our part to help our Airbnb guests stay safe by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.) before you check in.

All bedrooms are as comfortable and as lounge-worthy as possible: luxury mattresses, soft luxury sheets, fluffy down comforters, both down and fiberfill pillows, TVs, as well as closets, dressers and bedside stands for guest storage. Each bedrooms get tons of natural light as well, especially in the morning.
- Master bedroom has a queen bed and en suite bathroom, and spiral staircase to a fun loft perfect for lounging or peeking at the ocean view.
- Second Bedroom has queen bed, access to second full bathroom through the hall, and great natural light.
- Third Bedroom has a bunk bed with two twin mattresses, and lots of natural light from the skylight.

Back patio has a gas BBQ and table for outdoor dining, allowing you to enjoy the awesome weather we have year round. There's also an outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off when coming home from the beach, and there is plenty of space to store surfboards, kayaks, bikes etc if you have them. Or come in through the side gate, drop your beach stuff in the backyard and enter through the laundry room right into the newly built 2nd bathroom. Backyard is fully fenced for kids or dogs to safely roam around. There are extra towels (dark green) for drying off any dogs who have enjoyed the beach.

Front yard is private, and has a fire pit and lounge area that can be used until 10pm. It's also a great place to have coffee while you wake up in the morning. Smoking area has been set up with chairs as well, with a great view of the rest of the yard.

Like most homes in Coastal CA, we do not have air conditioning. Please carefully consider whether this will work for you and your group.
Summer/Fall here usually means sunny hot days and mostly cool nights; August is the hottest month. Fans are provided to help circulate air and assist in cooling the house down at night, and most of the time the cool ocean breeze is blowing.

You can walk to the beach or downtown, it is about a 10-15 minute walk, just be aware that the house is at the top of a hill, and some of the neighborhood streets are narrow and do not contain sidewalks. Neighborhood locals walk to the beach all the time, but if you are carrying a lot of gear or have young children we recommend the 5 minute drive.

The freeway is rarely heard at the house. Though on the map it appears close to the I-5, the topography of the area prevents freeway noise: house is up a steep embankment from the freeway and there are 3 rows of residential housing complete with old growth foliage and trees that further filter out any sound. The usual on-shore winds also blow sound eastward, away from the house.

Streets are have no lights and no sidewalks so transportation is recommended after dark.

Where you’ll be

Encinitas, California, United States

The house is a three-minute drive from the main drag of downtown Encinitas, which offers many restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. A bit farther is Swami's Beach, a gorgeous family friendly spot known to be a great place to surf and boogie board - it's a 10-15 minute walk and uphill on the way back.

Neighborhood is family friendly, quiet and serene both day and night.

Dave and I live in Encinitas with Bailey, our black lab/cattle dog mix. We like anything that takes us outside, especially surfing, SUPing, golf, snowboarding, and traveling. We love live music and go to as many concerts as possible. We love good food, good wine, good whiskey, and good place to relax!
