We were so happy with our stay and the space. Exactly as advertised and so peaceful and relaxing. Any reviews to the contrary were untrue, we were treated so well. The space was clean, well appointed. Julie was a great host. We will be back!

Our family of four (12yo and 7yo) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was wonderful- quiet street/neighborhood, easy parking, walkable to town and to watch the sunset from just steps away. It was in a central location for all of our daily excursions as well. We had poor wi-fi connections, but we were on vacation and didn't want to be connected all the time so it wasn't a deal breaker for us. The bed was comfortable, as were the cot and couch our kiddos slept on. We loved having beach towels and sand toys available for our use. It really was more than we hoped for. Would stay here again. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us.

This was a lovely place for my BFF and me to have a few days away from winter. My sister came and stayed for a night too. Julie really has thought of every detail and we had everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable and its location was perfect to walk everywhere. Thank you for a great trip!

This location is pretty great! Very accessible to points of interest and eateries in Encinitas. Only a short drive away from La Jolla, Torrey Pines, Del Mar, and more. We really enjoyed the walkability in the morning for coffee at many of the spot on the 101. Check our Swami's Beach and the cafe. Acai bowls are not in short supply. Bed is super comfortable and has a cool sky light above it. Brings in a lot of natural light during the day. Wifi wasn't great. But there were plenty of spots to grab hi speed wifi near by. Never saw hosts. Very easy access in from a back street, which Julie lays out well for her guests. Very quiet neighborhood. Nice people and wonderful overlook for the sunsets about 30 yards away! If you're wanting to go to beaches, there is a 10 minute walk to get to stairs to walk down the side of the cliff to the beach. Awesome beach walk to make a wonderful late night stroll. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience. We would recommend this spot if your are looking for a place in Encinitas. Has everything you need to make your stay like home for a couple days. Thanks for having us Julie!

We are California to the core. My husband and I love to spend time with our grown family and friends. We are very social and take every opportunity to do something spontaneous. We love the Ocean and walk the beach almost everyday. My husband surfs and body surfs several times a week. In addition we adore tennis and try to play at least 4 times a week. I guess the best way to describe us is...we love to have fun, laugh and meet wonderful new people.
