    “AMAZING SPACE AND EXPERIENCE! I don't know where to start! This was a last minute work trip and the hosts were very speedy and accommodating with their communication. They got back to me in great time and I booked the property the day of. When I arrived, Heather was there to give me instructions and set me free. You pull into an AMAZING backyard oasis, all too yourself!, through a cool thoughtful automatic sliding gate. The design of the entire property is cohesive, fun, and playfull. The backyard area is a lot of space to have tti yourself!! You unlock the sliding door to your studio apartment and walk into a beautifully mermaid sea themed space, better than the pictures! They had a welcome message written for me at the door and a bag of candy waiting next to an instruction binder with how to use the space. The hosts are very generous with sharing ask types of fun amenities for you to use while there; bikes, surfboards, beach chairs, a beach canopy, a grill, and much more!! It's only blocks from the beaches and in a great safe neighborhood. The hosts securely lock everything also. I took a late night bike ride to enjoy the city and beaches and loved it. A++++ PROPERTY”

The property is a true oasis!

    What guests are saying:

    “Susan’s place is lovely and well located, but what makes this place five stars is Susan’s responsiveness, her kindness, and attention to detail. The place was spotless. We had a family emergency that required my spouse to travel to San Diego last minute and during this trying time of a pandemic. After clear communication on our mutual health and self-isolation status, Susan took great care to make his stay not only comfortable, but safe. We are incredibly grateful to Susan and look forward to visiting again under happier times.”

    Dive into the Pool of this Secluded Casita in Encinitas

    White walls and French doors open up each room to create a feeling of calm throughout the home. From the designer furnishing and tasteful decor items to the tennis court and pool outside, this Casita is as spacious as it is stylish. The property is resort like, without the crowds. Play tennis, shoot hoops, lay by the 45 foot long pool, or stroll through the garden. Hiking and mountain bike trails are out the back door.

    “This is a place that is perfect for couples needing to get away, singles who need quiet and space, and small families. If you are looking a for a place that is in the middle of action and hustle and bustle, this is NOT your place. The location is still close enough to restaurants, coffee places, grocery stores but you are away from city noises. Molly truly has the gift of hospitality. She thinks of the little things that make a BIG difference in your stay. We checked in after dark so she had some ecandles on, and a few lights on to set the tone for the stay. It was my birthday weekend and I really did not want a party. I wanted peace and quiet since my life is so busy and I forget to stop and smell the roses. She had a nice slice of cake with a personalized, "Happy Birthday, Christy" and a small basket of fresh eggs from her chickens. Her towels and sheets were soft, the bed is so comfortable, and the bathroom even had two showers! Her property is full of green foliage and some flowers, including a beautiful bougainvilla right near the fountain. This place is really gives you a sensory experience that helps you relax. The wind blowing through the trees, the natural lighting all throughout the day, the warm fire place, the beautiful finishing touches in her casita of woods, books, and wall pictures (that many airbnb places lack) gave this place a unique charm and character . I really needed some recharging time and this place delivered for me. On our last night, we spent some time in the hot tub . The water was nice and hot and it was very peaceful , and you could see the stars and moon since the location is away from city lights. If you have stayed at higher end hotels, this place will definitely NOT disappoint. It's a steal for the price! Thank you Molly for making our stay so relaxing and special! We would love to come back!”
