About the property

Perfect Family or Corporate Rental w/2 Family Rooms & Kitchens, Steps to Beach!

Luxury! Designer Decor, Prime Beach & Ocean Views, Best Walking Location, A/C! 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 and free WiFi. 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 bonfires. Older adults have easy access. Everyone can gather on the beautiful patio and enjoy the view of all the activities on the beach and surfers in the ocean waves. So close you can see and call in your kids on the beach from the patio! 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, Free Wifi and unique group activities nearby to make your trip unforgettable. We can even plan your retreat agenda, book speakers or office space two blocks away.

You will love it!

Why Estee Gubbay chose Encinitas

It has the perfect location and it is very new and modern with lots of bedrooms and baths! It is the only house with an additional family room with full kitchen and large patio with BBQ. You can have the kids hang out there or hire a cook in the separate kitchen! 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! Dont be fooled by their ocean views because you'll have a hard time getting to the beach and it will be black at night. Our view has EVERYTHING going on at the beach plus whitewater views and accessibility. The lifeguards, first aid, concession stand, and rental stand are all right across the street. The best coffee, pizza, sandwich shop and ice cream in town is 2 short blocks away or .2 miles. The Historic 101 highway and shopping "main street" are also two blocks away.

Amazing property in an awesome SoCal spot!

  • 5 of 5

We used this home for a family reunion for people coming from distant places. First and foremost, its SoCal destination speaks volumes for its attractiveness. Moonlight Beach couldn't be more darling, or more fun. A really nice place to vacation, and the house is just so close.

The house itself is wonderful for large groups: so many bedrooms/sleeping arrangements, with enough bathrooms to accommodate. We comfortably used every space offered: the decks, the dining spaces, both kitchens (cooked an amazing Thanksgiving dinner for 14!), and even the outdoor seating spaces. The house was wonderfully appointed, and the owner very responsive to our questions and needs. While I do not have much VRBO experience, I loved this house and give it, the location and the owner very high marks.

Great location, Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 adults snd 4 children spent a great week here. The house is spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed eating many meals out on the upper deck.

The location is perfect for walking to the beach, restaurants and coffee shops.

A perfectly elegant vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our third VRBO experience with a California beach home. This looked like a very nice place and we were not disappointed. The unit is finished and decorated in a very European style. Fixtures, flooring, and furnishings were all as nice as the pictures in the VRBO catalog. One of the pictures is the view from the upstairs dining room area of the beach and that view we enjoyed every daylight minute. It is 3-4 minutes and you are on the beach. We had 4 families and 4 cars and for once we didn't have to search the streets for a parking space. the garage (1) and drive (3) accommodated our transportation. It is a short walk to a coffee shop with great pastries. An equally short walk to the famous Handel's ice cream shop. (40 flavors!) It was also close walk to downtown Encinitas which has a number of shops and restaurants (Great Pizza). We had several small grandchildren and there was a nice park with playground equipment 2 minutes from the home. Our host Estee was accommodating and very responsive. Every element was 5 star. We will stay here again if we return to the Southern California coast. Thank you for accommodating our 2017 family reunion.

We stayed here for 4 days in June for a family reunion. The home is immaculate and beautiful.The bedrooms were spacious and really comfortable. There are 3 beautiful masters with en-suite bathrooms and the other bedrooms are super spacious, pretty and comfortable. There are 2 huge fully equipped kitchens so we only had to make one grocery store run as there was plenty of space to keep everything refrigerated. The floor plan is nice and open so you can cook and visit at the same time. The decor is very modern beachy and there are so many spaces upstairs and down to gather and hang out. We loved the balconies where we could see the whole of Moonlight Beach and catch the cool breezes.

The location is as good as it gets being just steps to the beach and the town. The garage is filled with beach chairs, boogie boards and anything else you would want for a day at Moonlight beach which is such a fun beach. It has 3 volleyball courts, a snack bar with bathrooms, great waves for boogie boarding and the beaches are great for walking with the ocean on one side and the bluffs on the other. The hone is also so convenient to the town and you can walk to any restaurant or shop easily.

Estee, the owner was great to work with and so responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend this property and will stay here again if lucky enough to have the opportunity!

Pretty much as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, great location and owner was very accommodating and helpful. Owner was quick to answer questions via text and it was just a really nice stay. Just make sure that when you book the place, to read all of the instructions the owner provides...that will help your stay. Lovely house and when we are back in Encinitas and if the house is available, will definitely love to book it!

Great home away from home close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 plus two additional children recently stayed at this property for 5 nights. We chose this home because it was very close to our friends whom live locally, but it really turned out to be the perfect space for our spring break getaway.

This home was the perfect layout for multiple families, but in our scenario it was equally great, giving the older children their own kitchen and spacious hangout area (family room) separate from ours on the upper level. With so many rooms, it's a great option for a very large group, but also for those that don't enjoy being cooped up together in tight quarters while traveling. It was a close walk to the nearby Moonlight Beach and with lots of local shops and great dining options, you don't have to go far unless you want to. The home was clean and seemingly well maintained with no major issues. Estee, the homeowner, was wonderful to deal with and super prompt to respond, though fortunately we didn't need her during our stay, except to add an additional night and extend our trip. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely suggest this home for your next trip to Encinitas!

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.
