        Perfect vacation home in SoCal

        This cottage was the perfect place to spend a vacation in the beach town of Encinitas. The home is so beautiful, the backyard was so inviting, We stayed home many of the nights we were there and ate dinner on the patio. Upon arrival, we found blueberries, pancake mix with directions, creamer for the provided coffee, a coffee maker and a Keurig, a bottle of wine and a feeling of being welcomed. The owner texted us and was always available which made it pretty easy to sit back and relax, knowing they were present for troubleshooting (we had no need for this however!). The master has a king tempurpedic bed, closet with plenty of hangers, and dresser with drawers, the house was spotless. The laundry room was accessed outside and a perfect place to store our golf clubs and bikes that we brought with us. The kitchen has absolutely everything you might need, the dishes, silverware, pots, pans and appliances were perfect! The neighborhood was so nice, people walking their dogs, everyone was friendly, we never felt we had to lock the doors, although we did, the area was great. We were a stones throw to grocery stores, the biking from here was great for us, the ocean was 4 -5 blocks away. The wonderful thing about this cottage was that it is quite small but has such ideal use of space, the bathroom was small but the shower was large and the doors and shower heads etc were all top of the line. The kitchen was so efficient, the towels and sheets, very nice, the TV was awesome, the sectional couch just perfect, it really was well thought out. The garden was beautiful and our pups really enjoyed the cross breeze from the back door to the front door which was a dutch door (the top of the front door opens) and there were large windows with screens, ceiling fans in every room, very comfortable. We will definitely return to the Jasmine Cottage and we have already referred many of our friends. This is a 'gem' in the world of vrbo and airbnb. There is a cottage in back in a separate yard with a gate between where their daughter lives and we never heard her. In fact, I ran outside to say hello to her when she was getting into her car on the street, and she just offered to help with anything we might need. Thank you Lisa and Mark!

          We LOVED our recent stay at the Jasmine cottage!!!

          Wow - what a wonderful vacation at the Jasmine cottage!! We picked the cottage because of the beautiful backyard flowers and decor...and we were not disappointed!! It was so wonderful sipping our morning lattes on the chaise lounges, admiring the beautiful flowers and gardens while watching the birds play in the back yard. In the evenings, it was great having family backyard BBQs and then continuing the conversations around the fire pit. We simply LOVED the Jasmine cottage and can't wait to return!! - pam


            Beautiful but not as private as expected

            The property was beautiful and lush with tons of birds and flowers. However, we were not informed until after we arrived that the property manager's daughter actually lives on the property (in the office). We found this out when the property manager showed up (unannounced) the first afternoon as we were trying to relax in the back yard. This was not mentioned in the description of the property and although the daughter was mostly quiet and left us alone, it wasnt the private experience we were expecting. The sauna and the outdoor shower are both actually adjacent to the office that the daughter lives in, not adjacent to the cottage we stayed in. The door to the sauna was right next to the daughter's window so it didnt feel very private entering and exiting the sauna. Also we could hear the daughter listening to an action movie while we were inside the sauna because her living area was so close. We didnt feel comfortable using the outdoor shower once we found out someone was living there. Given the amount of money we spent on this place, my wife and I both felt very disappointed at the lack of privacy and we felt misled, not being informed before we paid that there was someone else living on the property. Had we known we would have chosen a different rental for our vacation. That being said, it was incredibly beautiful and just a short walk to Swami's and the main drag of old Encinitas. If there had not been a surprise additional person living on the property I would have given five stars.

              The Perfect Home For a Relaxing Getaway!

              We so enjoyed staying at the cottage this past week, I'm already having withdrawals! The home is equipped with everything you need and more. The backyard is much bigger than it looks in the pictures - I loved the landscaping and gorgeous roses. I'm still amazed at how quiet the yard/area was! We met the owners and they were so nice to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. There is also a back office on the property, which I didn't realize when booking. It wasn't a problem at all, but something to note. This home was perfectly situated in Encinitas. We love the area and walking it is always a must. You'll find you can park your car, and leave it in its place during your stay. We enjoyed walking to coffee, restaurants, and the beach daily. I've stayed at a lot of Airbnbs and VRBOs, and this home was by far the most comfortable. If I could give this home 10 stars I would!
