    About this property

    Best Modern House at Beach! Spectacular Ocean Views- $500k Remodel for Summer!

    Beachfront villa with calming spa services
    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, office and master 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 Restoration Hardware 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. The TV room has a huge sofa that can fit 6-8 people can lay down in front of the 80 inch TV and a kitchenette. There is also a large 70 inch TV in the living room and an 80 inch TV in the 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, seating, 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 pass through from the kitchen perfect for sunset viewing. There is garage parking for 2 cars and 2-3 cars in the driveway. This is a great house for 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! 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 travel, retreat agenda, book speakers or office space two blocks away. You will love it! * Please note - Pictures are before the remodel which is to be finished by April 2019. We will be taking out one bedroom adn the front office to expand the newly remodeled living room, dining room and kitchen, as well as put all new floor to ceiling glass walls, hardwood floors and new designer decor. The downstairs kitchen will become a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave & dishwasher & the Family room will be remodeled and redecorated as well. The house will have 5 bedrooms, 1 office, 5 baths and sleep 10. Rendering pictures have been added to our listing to give you an idea of the new look. (minus the new, open dining room on the left side where the office currently is.) There is a chance of some interior construction noise from next door, as they are finishing their project. Prices reflect this. Also, If you need any travel arrangements or car rental, I can also take care of that for you as I own a full service travel agency.

      Spacious and perfect location

      Loved everything about this place! My interaction with the property manager to the whole 5 night stay was an At! The location is perfect walking distance to beach or perfect for beach cruiser rides into town! Two kitchens that were huge. Loved how much room we had. I highly recommend staying here. The rooms were great size and lots of closet space. If i were to give one suggestion it would be more bathroom towels in each bathroom, but other than that no complaints whatsoever! Thank you for helping us to create many memories for my family and friends! Rachel Read

        Dissapointed

        I'm not a review writer. However I felt the owner had an opportunity to make things right regarding our stay and that did not happen. I felt that some very important details were left undisclosed regarding this property. At the end of the day I felt that what I got was not what I paid for. When I brought it to the owners attention, I was offered a token that was quite frankly a bit insulting, and at that point I felt slighted which is why I write this. The property is nice and it's a great location. This goes without saying. I'll try and be brief. There is a full scale tear down of the home directly in front of this rental (the first thing you see when viewing the ocean from the home). When you are standing on the deck you are overlooking a big rectangular pit with big rig equipment and construction workers working throughout the day. Our vacation day would begin at 7:15 AM sharp with the loud beeps that heavy equipment make when they are backing up (the warning siren). The noise and work continue for the following 8 hour work day. This tear down next door has just begun and by the looks of it probably won't be complete until sometime in 2019. I can say unequivocally that it ruined our planned peaceful time that we envisioned. My single one complaint is that this construction site was not disclosed in the listing or to us once we made the reservation. When I expressed my disappointment to the owner I was in general told the following in a very nice way. 1. That this home normally rents for a lot more money so I should be happy that I was able to get it for less. 2. She offered me another stay at the same price that I paid and not the normal higher rent they normally get. My point to the owner is this. I would have paid you higher rent per night for the peace and quite I was looking for. If your listing would have disclosed the construction site I would have booked elsewhere. But you did not disclose it and therefore I did not have the chance to make that decision for myself and family. Instead I was surprised by it upon arrival and then told to essentially be happy that I got a good deal in the first place. Well that doesn't work for me. The money is not the issue. It was missing out on the experience my wife and I were anticipating. Frankly the owner should have offered me a partial refund which would have made things right in my opinion. Offering me the home again came off a tad rich.

          Unluxurious, problem-filled “quirky” rental

          This is our family of 14’s 7th summer renting homes through Home Away. We are not newbies at renting and I have never been so disappointed in a home before. The location of this property is beautiful. Steps away from the very crowded Moonlight Beach. Inside, this was not a luxury rental. It is filled with broken down deck chairs, flattened out lumpy beds and pillows and skimpy kitchen equipment. The kitchen had no blender, no martini shaker, not 1 platter! Want hot water to shower? You must let the water run 5-10 minutes before showering. Really. The upstairs cooktop is Induction & tricky to use. You must only use special pots & eggs & everything sticks, nothing is easy. The first morning, the coffee pot was broken. We bought a new one at Costco and the owner did reimburse us. The owner responds to issues, we just had so many. Broken fridge, broken garage door and thats not counting the so many quirks peculiar to this house. Not enough bath towels. There should be at least 2 lg towels per person. There were not. The six beach towels supplied cannot leave the property & be used at the beach. We used them to supplement the bath towel situation. There were 4 broken down, rusting beach chairs for 14 people. All other beach houses we have rented had tons of chairs. We had to borrow some from relatives & purchase 4 which we left with our relatives. Estee says you can rent equipment on the beach. We rented this beach house for 14 days. It is absurd to rent 14 chairs for 14 days plus pay for this so called “luxury beach rental” If you advertise your beach home as sleeping 14, it needs to be equipped for 14. The most distressing thing was the condition of ALL the outside furniture. The upstairs deck has woven wicker chairs. On every chair the wicker was dirty & UNRAVELING & catches on your clothes. AWFUL! This was the space we wanted to gather because you have the beach view from here. The downstairs circular sofa that looks so pretty in the pictures, has huge tears in the cushions, is dirty & there is no view or breeze from down there. The topper though is that the home next door was demolished & you overlook a HUGE dirt pit construction site. On day 10 of our stay a massive drill was delivered & noise began at 7AM. Estee seems nice but this house needs TLC before it can be labeled “luxury”. Location alone does not make a home luxurious. It’s a combo of ease & beauty that creates luxury. This house is way too pricey for a very unluxurious rental

            Amazing property in an awesome SoCal spot!

            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.

            5/5 Excellent

              Great location, Wonderful house

              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.
