Recent Encinitas vacation rental reviews

We have been renting houses in southern california area for over 10 years around the Thanksgiving Holiday. I can say without hesitation that this is the best place we have ever stayed at and was exceptional in many ways. The house is more fully stocked with everything you will possibly need including a full pantry of many common household items. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, glasses and cooking utensils. Plenty of towels in the bathrooms. The furniture was comfortable and homey. The house also has plenty of personal touches that immediately make it feel like a home not a staged rental. The house has a full 2 car garage that provides security and parking off the street. The beach access is easy and fast and there is a beautiful, meditative beach lookout area steps from the house. I can not say enough positives about this house and the management who had excellent follow up in every respect. I can pretty much guarantee that this house will exceed your expectations, it did for us by a mile!!

My guys and I were working at local hospitals. They liked it so much, that they would like to stay there next time. I own a vacation rental with a 5 star rating. This is just as good. Thank you very much. Chad P

Whether you're hoping to catch some waves, see the sights, or just relax on a beautiful beach with some friends, you'll find whatever you're looking for in this charming Southern California town.

Where is Encinitas? 

This small town is perched about 25 miles north of San Diego in North County. The perfect place to see the California coast, you'll appreciate the convenient location of this charming city. Rancho Santa Fe, known for its golf club, is less than eight miles east. Also, with the vineyards of Escondido approximately 20 miles northeast, day trips from your Encinitas vacation rental are a must. 

Things to do near your Encinitas rental 

Begin your day with a walk and self-meditation session at the Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage and Meditation Garden. Once your mind is at ease and your body centered, head to either of the two famous Encinitas Beaches—Moonlight Beach and Swami's Beach. After a lesson at Leucadia Surf School, pick your prime spot on the white sand for hours of endless adventure. From surfing to boogie boarding, building sandcastles to burying the kids (or adults) in the sand, and feeding the seagulls and yourself some delicious local food, you'll find plenty of ways to fill your afternoons. 

Numerous mouth-watering eateries are available, and the local grocery store's deli counter is known for its famous sandwiches. If you aren't feeling like going out, pick up some groceries for a homemade meal cooked in the comfort of your Encinitas vacation rental.

When bellies are full, rent a bike to cruise down the coast to San Elijo State Beach or Solana Beach. At each of these beautiful beaches, you can stop for shopping at some of the local boutiques. Once you've picked up some souvenirs, continue on past the Del Mar Race Track to the iconic village of Del Mar.
