    About this property

    Plantation Beach Cottage

    Historic vacation home in Encinitas with spa tub
    The PBC is an enchanted 1,000 square foot tropical plantation styled beach cottage situated in a 10,000 sq. ft. lush tropical palm forest and has a rare verification by the original VRBO Bear as a Top 1% Listing! There are over 200 palm trunks offering filtered shade and tropical ambience accentuated by the light ocean breezes! The entire property has been designed with excellent attention to detail and is furnished with 100% Bali imported Indonesian furniture. The PBC is stocked with everything you would expect in your home! High-beam exposed ceilings, incredible modern but subtle indirect illumination, lots of natural day lighting from the six sky lights, great professional cookware and luxurious linens! What a fantastic coastal community and home to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in coastal Southern California! There are three outdoor living areas that provide amazing retreat and entrainment options. The outdoor wood fire is surrounded by deep seating which creates the perfect evening garden fire lounge. The fireside dining deck provides a peaceful sunrise coffee venue or romantic fireside dining experience. Sink into the deep all natural cedar wooden barrel hot tub or surrender into the authentic hand made palm leaf Palapa bed area for a siesta. Enjoy it all! These areas provide ample choices to fit your mood and take you away from your daily life! This is an ideal escape for 2-3 people (or 2 +/- 2 children) looking for a high quality resort property on a personal non-hotel scale in the best of locations! The house web site has many links and local activity details too! Walk to all local restaurants and beaches or grab the original 1970's Schwinn beach cruiser bikes for a local spin along the beach or to a local spot. Try long boarding on one of the surfboards or grab the beach gear and hit the sand! Everything you need is waiting for you to walk in and feel immediately at home! You are a local native! We have many friends who love visiting repeatedly! We sometimes have small vacancy/availability windows between bookings on our calendar, please feel free to inquire via mail about last minute & sub minimum stay occupancy opportunities! Make sure to watch the PBC video tour and also take the PBC Google 360 property tour! Mahalo!

      Interesting place

      I enjoyed my stay. I felt like the people who were quietly around were more noticeable a few issues but nothing that couldn’t be addressed and dealt with over all it was enjoyable

      5/5 Excellent
