“Comfort and space in a fantastic location” This was my first visit to this part of California and my first renting in the us over the internet. I spent some time researching, so I had a good idea of what to expect. However the service I got from VR from making the initial reservation to my arrival and the actual facilities, equipment and location of the condo itself far exceeding my expectations. I'd normally spend a few days stocking up with all those things you have in your home but are never there in a vacation rental - I didn't have to buy anything but groceries and replace what we'd used. Absolutely everything you need for a family vacation can be found somewhere in the condo. Moonlight Beach is a stunning location and having direct beach access is a real luxury and the views are stunning. I have so many great memories from surfing with dolphins & pelicans to seeing my first "red tide" and the sunsets from the balcony are just fabulous. On a practical note, it's very quiet and private but only a short stroll from all of the faclilities available in Main Street, Encinitas. I'm going back just as soon as I can!

Stunning Oceanfront Beach House 364 Encinitas

Encinitas house

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Old World Charm” Stepping into this home is like stepping back to a time when houses were built with integrity and the promise of all the good that life has to offer. Completely finished in knotty pine, with it's open beam ceilings and gorgeous wood floors, the warm embrace of this home allows you to feel less like you are on vacation, and more like you've "come home". The living spaces are filled with beautiful antiques, tastefully arranged around more modern, high quality and comfortable leather sofas. The large guest bedroom, decorated with antiques and quilts, has that comfy cottage feel to it. But, you will really know you've arrived when you enter the master bedroom. Massive in size, accentuated by an open beam ceiling, the master bedroom is truly a relaxing retreat at the end of a long day at the beach. The king sized bed is firm and comfortable, dressed in high quality bedding. There is also a children's nook in the master, furnished with bunk beds to accommodate the grandchildren. Both bathrooms are appointed with high quality fixtures and tiling. From the cabinets to the flooring, the warm woods continue throughout the kitchen and laundry area. The cabinets are well stocked with everything you need for preparing and serving home meals. And, although quite dated, the appliances are all functioning, making this kitchen totally accommodating. The kitchen is flanked by a lovely dining room, overlooking the deck and the ocean view through the picture window. And what about the ocean view from the deck? Simply breathtaking. In fact, you can take in this view from nearly half the house, as it was designed with wall to wall windows. Located just a few steps from Stone Steps, access to the beach could not be more convenient. An easy walk down the block or down the shoreline takes you right to Moonlight beach, while an easy walk east, leads you to Coast Highway and all the shopping and dining Encinitas has to offer.

“Breathtaking” The view is simply breathtaking. The home was very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for entertaining and my kids loved swimming in the heated pool! The home could use a little updating (ie. sliding doors, decor) but we would be happy to return to this residence.

“Awesome oceanside accomodations!” We had a wonderful stay in Encinitas at 180 Neptune. It was perfect for our week long getaway. Waking and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was awesome. Plenty of room, great neighbors, comfy beds, all the amenities of home and a view that can't be beat! We are repeat guests and we will definitely be back!

About Encinitas

Encinitas is a beautiful beach city in northern San Diego county made up of several neighborhoods, each one a distinctive vacation destination. Come here to visit historic Old Encinitas, friendly Olivenhain, or the relaxed, artistic neighborhood of Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Enjoy the best of San Diego's easygoing beach culture and stunning natural vistas. Take a morning run along the red cliffs beside the sea. Take a painting class on the beach and learn how to create beautiful ocean landscapes, or rent a sea kayak and explore the local reefs and marine life.

Later, go strolling in the upscale downtown shopping districts. Visit the local museums and learn more about San Diego's Spanish mission history. Or relax all afternoon in a luxury spa and indulge in some head to toe pampering. After the sun goes down over the Pacific Ocean, enjoy the elegant nightlife and world-class seafood restaurants along the coast. Then stay up late and sample the bars and live music venues that bring visitors here from all over the country.

Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip to Encinitas:

  • Play on the beach: Moonlight Beach and Swami Beach are two of the best in the area. Swim, snorkel or just bring a good book, find a place in the sun and relax.
  • Take a surf lesson: These beaches are also great for surfing, and there are several excellent surf schools here that can help prepare you hit the waves.
  • Explore the San Diego Botanical Gardens: Wander the trails of the botanical garden and see protected bamboo groves, blooming trees and hundreds of native and exotic plant species in breathtaking exhibits.
  • Visit the San Diego Heritage Museum: Come to this local museum and learn about the history of this part of southern California.
  • Take a hot air balloon ride: Take a ride in a magnificent balloon and see beautiful views of the coastline and sagebrush hills from above.
  • Play a round of golf: The emerald green golf courses of Encinitas are some of the best designed and well maintained courses in San Diego.

You'll never run out of fun things to do in Encinitas, and you'll have no trouble finding a perfect place to stay while you're here. Vacation rental opportunities are widely available in San Diego County during every season of the year. Find a sleek, elegant condo downtown, close to the shopping and nightlife or rent a luxurious villa with ocean views that lies just a few steps away from the beach. If your vacation schedule allows, you may want to take a drive up the coast to visit Los Angeles and beautiful San Francisco.

Pool, Oceanfront House, Downtown Encinitas, slps 9
Breathtaking views, perfect location, great house, very large ki

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in this fantastic home! It is spacious, comfortable and has a fantastic deck overlooking the Pacific ocean. The home's location could not be better. With a short walk you can be on the beach or among the shops and restaurants of Encinitas. The views from its perch atop the bluffs provides wonderful views and great privacy without compromising easy beach access. The indoor pool gives you the option of a great workout or relaxation. And the rental agency that handled our booking could not have been more flexible and accommodating. Beds were very comfortable. One of the highlights for us was watching the pelican fly right in front of us up and down the coast. Also, watching the dolphins ride the waves. We will not hesitate to return when we are back in the San Diego area. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home. Regards, Roslynsee more

Stunning view and perfect location

My wife and I loved our stay here. A better view of the ocean would be hard to find. Gorgeous beaches, cool restaurants, fun bars and eclectic shops are just a short walk away. The townhome is pretty basic, but very comfortable. The neighbors were so welcoming we felt like we left with new friends who we hope to see again soon when we come back!see more
Moonlight Beach Condo, Oceanfront Pool Jacuzzi
Our family of five felt right at home in our Moonlight Beach con

We really enjoyed our stay in Encinitas in our Moonlight Beach Condo. It provided plenty of space for the five of us, was wonderfully decorated, and even had boogie boards in the garage for our use. The grounds were well kept, and the complex was small and quiet. The pool and jacuzzi was a great hit with all of us and each morning the entire area was cleaned. We especially loved the fact we could walk out the pool area and use the stairway to the ocean sand below. It was such a fantastic set up! I loved the high ceilings and the big dining room table for family dinners. Chris, the rental agent I exchanged multiple emails with, was informative, prompt, and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that I know.see more
..Ocean Front Condo with Spectacular Views
Heaven on Earth!

When my friend and I opened the door to this well-designed condo, we started screaming with joy (literally). The view of the ocean including surfers, paddle boarders, dolphins, sailboats and spectacular sunsets is out of this world. The granite kitchen counter tops mimic the dark sand patterns on the beach. The master bedroom is spacious with plenty of closet space. The upstairs bedroom is a new addition with a sitting area, beautiful bathroom and a cute nook with additional beds. There is a TV in every bedroom and in the living/family room and a full-size washer/dryer in the bathroom across from the kitchen. The furniture is so fitting - beach cottage/rustic. I loved every second I spent here and will come back as often as I can. Also, the whole Sea Bluffe community is quiet and peaceful - truly a little bit of heaven on earth! The owner is wonderful to work with.see more
