The house boasts a salt water aquarium in the entry, a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a 20 bottle wine cooler, eat-at island, and separate dining area. Hardwood floors and tropical wood throughout, ceiling fans, french and sliding doors open in both bedrooms to patios. Bath has tub/shower with original Mexican tile. The outdoor shower is heaven!

About Tamara Arnold-Werker

My husband, Scott, and I are both creative people, we appreciate nature, enjoy culture, the arts, and the fine design and functionality of living spaces. Scott is a California native and I'm a transplant from the east coast and while we live in Los Angeles we both have roots in North County San Diego. We will return here, in paradise, upon retirement.

Why Tamara Arnold-Werker chose San Diego County

The house is a perfect complement to the quality of life this little beach town provides. While it's within a lazy stroll to sand, surf, and sunsets, the property offers a contrasting peaceful, zen-like living space to the village buzz.

What makes this house unique

The 3 best benefits this property offers:

1) No car needed! Walk to everything: beaches, shopping, food, entertainment. The house sits in the heart of this progressive SoCal beach village.

2) Lush tropical landscape, koi pond with waterfall and fountains provide peace and serenity.

3) Old charm bungalow with upscale detail, warmth, and modern amenities.

Relaxing Stay in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just had a wonderful vacation at this bungalow! The house itself was very comfortable and well laid out--everything you need is provided, including beach towels, boogie boards, and beach chairs! The kitchen was well-equipped, which was great considering Whole Foods was a mere block or so away. And of course the outdoor space was dreamy--we loved the outdoor shower for apres beach time, and enjoyed deck time with the koi. Location can't be beat--Encinitas is a laid back beach town, with several great beaches nearby and a plethora of yummy restaurants within a few blocks of the house. We won't hesitate to recommend this rental to any friends who want to visit the San Diego area. We had a really great vacation!

A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Even though you had houses right next store, you certainly didn't feel like it! My kids kept saying how much it reminded them of Hawaii! The beautiful sound of the waterfall in the back was so calming! Tamara was very kind and accommodating to our needs! Very responsive and checked in to make sure everything was provided that was needed. We adored the little town, and loved our beach time. It was such a relaxing vacation, I think we have found a new Memorial Day tradition!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a great location! Everything we wanted within blocks-restaurants, coffee shops, bakery, grocery store and the beach. No need for a car for us. House was very clean and well-equipped, including a bottle of wine. Landscaping was amazing! We really did feel like we were our own private oasis. Perfect vacation for us. Would most definitely rent again.

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rents a house in the San Diego area for a week every summer. This is by far the best rental we have ever gotten. From the moment you arrive you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. Lush plants, tall palm trees and water falls welcome you to this property.

When you walk in to the house you are surrounded by comfort. The beds are the most comfortable you will ever lay on! The bath towels are premium, the kitchen is gourmet and the living room is cozy. The amenities are too plentiful to list!

The most amazing part of the property is the back yard. There is the most wonderful koi pond and waterwall, a fire pit, great outdoor furniture and "hideout" as my boys called it.

We walked to the beach every day (sometimes more than once) because it was so close. It is also right in town so restaurants, coffee and stores are right there. You wouldn't have to drive anywhere unless you wanted to.

I know it sounds minor, but this property also has a driveway, which means a parking spot. Being this close to the beach, parking is at a premium. Knowing that we would not have to drive around looking for a spot was a relief.

We did not want to leave! If this property is available, we will always rent it. Could not recommend it more.

The owners are great and there is you have any questions (which you probably won't because they have thought of everything).

If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
