Great location for our wedding weekend
This house was a perfect place for our family for the weekend of our son's wedding in Encinitas. Ken was very helpful and accommodating. It couldn't have been better.Sara F.

Great Home. Great Location. Great Value!
This home was a great place to stay for our family vacation to California. It's about a 5-10 minute drive (at most) to most of the beaches nearby, and about a 20 minute drive to Mission Beach and Belmont Park in San Diego. We went with a group of 10 and were able to all be accommodated with no problems. There are 3 bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs, that can easily sleep 6. But with the 2 futons, the living room couch, and extra space in both upstairs bedrooms, we were able to easily sleep 10. We brought out own blankets, but there were plenty of additional blankets if needed. The washer and dryer are a HUGE plus, especially since we still had several days left on our vacation AFTER we left this home. The basketball goal on the back patio and the pool table on the second floor were both heavily used and a definite source of entertainment for our group. The rooftop loft was quaint, cozy, and offered amazing views of the sunset into the Pacific Ocean. There's also a fire pit for s'mores or just for relaxing while watching the sunset. The kitchen was easy to use, dishes and utensils were easy to find and there was enough room in the refrigerator for our food. The living room was great. TV is easy to turn on and use, and we were even able to use the surround sound for a movie one night. The WiFi is easy to access and definitely a plus if you're looking to limit you data usage. My only complaint was that this home felt more like an AirB&B than a VRBO. There are family pictures up, personal food in the refrigerator and pantry, and drawer space is limited for clothes. This home is lived in when not being rented out. BUT, that DID NOT detract from our experience at this home. This is more of a personal preference of mine in homes I've rented before. Ken, the owner, was great to deal with. He always communicated well with us and gave us great recommendations about the area, since we had never been. Even with the minor things listed above, we would definitely stay here again if we come back. Our family had a blast and we know that the amenities at Ken's house were a big part of our amazing California experience.Matthew W.

Great place , great location , and a wonderful Hos
Ken was a fantastic host! He had everything set up for us and the place was very clean ! We had 12 family members in the house for 4 nights and 5 days and we had plenty of room! Kitchen was nice and big ! 4 big bathrooms really made the stay easy for all of us too! Kids loved the pool table on the 2nd floor, and we all love the 3rd floor deck, where you can sit and watch the sunset over the ocean ! We couldn't of asked for the more perfect place to stay! Ken made our stay feel like we were home. Ken was great to communicate with and was attentive to all our needs . The location was great, probably about 1 mile from the beach! We would stay here again and again! Thanks Ken!Keith P.
