Huge Encinitas Compound
This large and prominent home is the perfect place for guests who appreciate travertine and wood floors, high end Thermador appliances, beautiful Brazilian granite, and lots of space for sleeping and entertaining. Just a short drive, or bike, to a variety of beaches, shopping, and dining in Cardiff and Encinitas. Depending on adjacent bookings, I can often accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs. Note: Please read through the entire listing before making a reservation. The space Approximately 3,500 SF of the home's 5,300 SF is available for exclusive use. [The remainder of the home is comprised of a granny flat (separate listing) and the owner's quarters.] The 3rd-story roof deck is the highest floor in Encinitas, with panoramic ocean and territorial views. There is an extensive collection of original eclectic artwork displayed throughout the property. The oversized dog's patio can accommodate up to 4 dogs. (There is a $50/pet fee for any length stay.) The expansive driveway can accommodate up to 4 guest vehicles. The largest upstairs bedroom has a king bed, several floor mattresses/toppers, a loveseat, a small table with 2 chairs, a dresser with mirror, a large closet, a ceiling fan, and a large TV on a full swivel wall mount. The next largest upstairs bedroom shares a bathroom ("Jack 'n Jill" style with shower, toilet, and 2 vanities) with the largest bedroom. It has an ocean peak balcony, a queen bed, a large comfortable chair, a tall boy dresser, a large closet, and a TV on a full swivel wall mount. The 3rd upstairs bedroom has a queen bed, a tall boy dresser, a desk and chair, a closet with mirrored doors, a TV on a full swivel wall mount, a ceiling fan, and an attached bathroom that also has access to the hall. The 4th bedroom is the detached casita/bunkhouse that has 4 full-over-queen bunkbeds and a reclining chair.

Downstairs: front entry, large gourmet kitchen, great room (including dining table for 4, sectional couch, TV, and pool table), large dining room (including dining table for 6 and fireplace), 1 full bathroom, rear covered patio (with stainless steel BBQ), dog's patio (with 4 covered dog houses), detached overflow sleeping quarters with wraparound deck and patio cover, and a large ground-level deck with fire pit and fountain. Off limits (owner's quarters): Upstairs: master bedroom, kitchenette, part of 2nd floor deck, and detached office.

House manual All TV's are equipped with an Amazon Fire Stick streaming device, pre-loaded with Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Amazon content, and other apps. I already have accounts with these services, so you don't need to sign in. The fire pit operates with a propane tank, behind the fountain, that must be opened first by turning the handle to the left. The key for the valve (located in a container on one of the BBQ's, along with log lighters) should be turned to the left about a half turn or so, and the fire ring should be lit near the center with one of the log lighters. Do not turn the gas on all the way until the ring is lit, and do not let too much gas accumulate prior to lighting, to avoid a large initial flame "whoosh" that may singe your eyebrows or worse. Another method is to light a piece of paper and place it in the middle of the fire ring, then turn on the gas. If you're having trouble, please let Russ know as soon as possible so that he may assist in the lighting procedure. Other things to note Please let me know ASAP if there any needs and/or issues. Please understand that the cleaning fee covers only regular cleaning and preparation. It does not cover cleaning up a party mess, dirty dishes, sticky floors (usually caused by spilled beer and alcohol), etc. An additional cleaning fee will be applied if the house is left in poor condition.
