Beachfront California Cottage
Enchanting, single story beach cottage with about 1700 sq. ft. of beachfront living. From the front door you can see all the way through the house to the ocean.
The large hallway and great room layout of the house makes it feel openly large. At night, there is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the crashing waves.
North County is a wonderful flash into the past of old beach cities but still very close to many San Diego attractions such a Legoland, Del Mar Track, Sea World, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Petco Padres Stadium, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, Downtown Gas lamp District and Old Town San Diego.
If you prefer to stay local, bike or walk to nearby restaurants and bars. Relax or dine on the back patio with views over the Leucadia/Encinitas bluff to the ocean below. Watch the surf, dolphins, whales or people. Take the 85 steps to the beach for your morning/evening surf, walk or stroll.
Enjoy many great cafes for dining, and go sight seeing at the stunning Hotel Del Coronado! Go biking along the bay or beach on the board walk.

A surfer's dream!
We enjoyed a glorious week of fun and relaxation in this gorgeous beach home. The area directly in front of the home must’ve been the primo spot to catch perfect waves because from sun up to sundown there were plenty of surfers to watch. We tried our luck at the sport as the homeowner, Matt, had surfboards and wetsuits for us to use. Whether sipping on morning coffee or evening cocktails, the back deck was our favorite place to hang out. One evening we enjoyed watching a pod of dolphins make their way across our oceanfront view. They swam and flipped among the surfers, all waiting to catch that perfect wave. The cool summer evenings meant we could enjoy the outdoor fire pit. This home really had anything and everything we could want for that perfect beach getaway! Wendy and Matt were wonderful hosts and shared insider tips on the area. The city of Encinitas was such a laid-back beach town with an abundance of local food and drink spots to enjoy. San Diego was only a short drive south and could be easily reached taking the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. Can’t wait to return!”
Wonderful time in this terrific beach front home. Everything about it was perfect! ”
This charming beach cottage is pure delight with expansive ocean views from the living room, kitchen, dining and master bedroom. The entire house is tastefully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the surfers who seemed to be surfing directly in front of the house from morning until night. The home is well stocked with excellent cookware and dishes. The beds were all comfortable and there were ample linens and towels. Parking can be challenging in the area so having a garage was a big plus. Lots of great restaurants in the nearby towns. We hope to return again soon!”
A huge thank you for the opportunity to stay in this Clifftop bit of blue heaven. The sunsets and early morning light were magical. Comfortable, clean, well appointed and a great location. Can't say enough. It was a great spot to escape this winter in Boston!”
Great home and a beautiful location. I would highly recommend. ”
Best week EVER!!!
We recently visited Encinitas, California of the Matthew's beachfront home. The home was impeccable, recently renovated and no detail was overlooked. The Matthews did a phenomenal job and the home is equipped for a luxurious experience. The view is breath taking and the giant back cement deck and outdoor furniture encourages you to enjoy the outdoor living California is famous for. The Matthews have thought of everything, including detailed security that allows you to access the house keyless, yet fully secured. Direct access to the gorgeous beach and fun surf in front of the house was worth the trip alone!! We surfed every day and the kids enjoyed all of the sand toys that were stocked in the garage. Heading down the steps directly to the beach allowed us to leverage our beach time, avoiding cars/packing/parking and melt downs. We enjoyed the beach so much and appreciated the private access to no end! One of our friends is an avid cook, who maximized every opportunity to utilize the well designed and stocked kitchen. The open floor plan allows you to have family meals, relaxed great room comfort and panoramic views of the Pacific.....perfect, just perfect! The Matthews are very thoughtful and equipped us with detailed information prior to our arrival, allowing us to begin a fun vacation immediately. All of their advice was impeccable and we truly appreciated having all of our questions answered at our finger tips. A huge thank you to the Matthews and 3rd Home. We love this program and this home is a true gem! ”
