This pretty beach cottage in Encinitas, sleeps up to 7 and is a relaxed place to stay by the ocean, with surfboards and beach toys for guests and a farmer’s market a short stroll away. It’s a simple set-up with 2 bedrooms, a lounge-diner and a wrap-around deck for barbecues, sunset viewing or morning coffee. The family kitchen makes for easy catering. Stay and enjoy sensational sunsets, spending time at the beach and exploring one of San Diego’s most characterful cities.

Why Kids Love it

We love the location here for an easy family vacation - just a short walk with kids or a stroller from the stores and restaurants of downtown Encinitas. There is an easy-going vibe and surfboard hire, surf tuition, boogie boards and beach toys all available for guests. Moonlight beach is just a couple of blocks away. Encinitas has plenty of kid appeal, with Butterfly Farms, the magical San Diego Botanic Garden and a community park with playground and skate plaza to enjoy.

Car rental useful but not essential; much of downtown Encinitas and its beaches are walkable from this residence. There is off street parking for 2 cars. There is a Whole Foods and farmers market nearby.

This is a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom property. It includes a double bedroom with queensize bed, a children’s bedroom with full over twin bunk bed, and optional air beds. The house also has a lounge-diner, a kitchen, a bathroom with shower and a wrap-around deck with seating and a barbecue.

Style Notes

Beach house. Your setting for an easy sundrenched vacation includes plenty of light and color. The wrap-around deck is perfect for barbecues, morning coffee and for drying swim kit and wetsuits after a day at the beach, while the bathroom is fun and lively with a cheery floral shower curtain. We love the views of the ocean, palm trees and sunsets, and the easy-going feel.

I have lived in Encinitas all my life and would never move away because everytime I travel for work or vacation, I simply can't wait to get back to Encinitas...mostly due to the great town, weather and local beaches.

This house is in a great location! The beach, lots of restaurants and shops are all within a 5-15 minute walk. The house was clean and comfortable for my family; we felt right at home. We definitely hope to be back. Encinitas is a wonderful place! Lance was responsive and helpful.

We had a wonderful stay at this Encinitas cottage last week! We arrived on a Wednesday, which was fortuitous, as we were able to walk one block(!) to the lovely Encinitas Station Farmers Market ( to stock up on gorgeous California produce for our stay. For everything else, we walked just a bit further to the local Whole Foods and any number of lovely (and kid-friendly) restaurants and breweries within easy walking distance. Encinitas is an ideal beach town for families! The house was comfortable, quiet, and well-stocked with beach essentials (toys, umbrellas, beach towels), which was great for our visits to the gorgeous, family-friendly Moonlight State Beach ( My son loved the bunk beds in the kids' room, and enjoyed kicking the soccer ball around in the front yard! The host was very helpful, and we had a great stay. Thank you!
