Awesome gorgeous big spacious house in a beautiful neighborhood. Would book this place again if I make a trip back to Encinitas. Lot of amenities included.
Well, to be honest, I was pretty disappointed with the weather! Very cool, but still 60 degrees better than Minnesota. Luckily, the house was perfect for our family gathering as it had a laid-back, lived-in feel like our own houses with little quirks that made it comfortable - especially the beds -- but watch out for that front door knob! LOTS of floor space to spread out and floor pillows for a two-year-old to burn energy with while the other two generations marveled. Great coffee machine! Fantastic patio -- even if it wasn't warm enough to fire up the cordless Marguerita maker or get the hot tub hot. We all got to be better ping pong players. Loved Encinitas-Leucadia cafe's (special shout out to ipe coffee, raul's tacos, encinitas cafe) and the nearby malls proved very useful. Thanks, Cornelius!
The house was in a good location, in quite neighborhood, and central to all beach areas from Solana to Carlsbad. It was a spacious beach house able to accommodate us well. The hot tub and ping pong table were a plus.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cornelius' house. Nice neighborhood and not too far from the ocean. We had plenty of room to accommodate our group with enough beds and bathrooms to satisfy us all. A very warm and inviting spacious home and great backyard. Lots of interesting artwork!
Cornelius was a gracious host. The house was spacious and inviting and the patio and hot tub were difficult to beat. Located close to the beach, the park, and various restaurants, the setting was ideal for a great time. And the weather happened to be perfect too. This is a wonderful space for friends or family, or both.
Cornelius sent a good friend to let us in to the house, because he was traveling and she was very throughough. He responded to our questions quickly. The house is wonderful. The house is an L shape, and really fun. It's a good place to go and unwind with a big group. It's very kid friendly!!
Though we were unable to meet the host, we did meet his friend Laura who was extremely nice and gracious from the beginning. We met at the house and she went through all the different rooms advising us on how best to use the appliances and any intricate issues that were involved with them. She then immediately said goodbye and left so we could start our vacation. It is a beautiful house with a gorgeous view of the ocean from the second floor. It is clean, well-kept home with comfortable couches and beds, and clean bathrooms with great amenities. The jacuzzi was wonderful and adjustable to the temperature desired and worked like a dream!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your home and we will be back to visit again soon!
The location was great. The house is in need of overall maintenance. For example, the bannister going upstairs had pulled away from the wall and the balcony railing off the master bedroom was dangerously loose. Lots of dried up, dead flowers /plants everywhere, inside and out. The hot tub was not used because it was green and slimy and also had a broken top. No tv in the main area. Headboard in master bedroom had pillows stuffed between the boards to keep it from moving. Personal bank statements and bills left out for anyone to see. One of the backs on the bar stool was very loose-could not be used. Front door knob came off in hand!
Our stay was amazing, having all the comforts of home away from home really makes the difference in the vacation experience. The Jacuzzi was a great way to unwind. The place was clean and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. What more can you ask for? Thanks for having us Cornelius!
Cornelius was very responsive. We had no troubles with the property whatsoever. The home is very nice and very large. It accommodated our large family gathering of 10 quite comfortably. Cornelius even had the airbed all pumped up and ready for us. We enjoyed the separate spaces the home offers and also being together on the lovely patio with evening fire pit. Great home in a nice neighborhood to base out of to enjoy the area. Walked to Grandview Beach and back no problem. Would definitely stay again!
Easy going and respectful guests. Everything worked smoothly
Cornelius is one of our unusual guests who live in the area and needed a special place to entertain family and friends. Although we only met through e-mail and text he lived up to his amazing reputation of having visited many Airbnb homes over the years and left with a big welcome back! Although not necessary, he let me know that he used the onsite washer and dryer to wash, dry, fold, and stack the bed sheets and towels used during his stay with us. Cornelius....Please come back again.
Cornelius was an ideal guest! He was considerate and responsible. He was very neat, clean and quiet. He was only here for a couple of days, but it was a pleasure to make his acquaintance. I would highly recommend him as a future guest.
What a treat to have Cornelius and Sophie as our guests over the weekend! Communication leading up to his arrival was excellent. He is a quite, thoughtful and respectful guest. Sophie is a bright, friendly and cheerful soul who brings joy and love of live where ever she goes. We would welcome them back any time and any hosts should happily hit the accept button if they request a visit.
Cornelius and his daughter were good guests. They were respectful and understanding.
Although I was only expecting to have one person arrive.. Cornelius and his daughter were a pleasure to have.

Cornelius and his daughter were excellent guests. Respectful, clean and great energy. I would recommend them to any host.
We really enjoyed having Cornelius and his daughter Sophie (she is a hoot). They were friendly and tidy and spent a lot of time with us in common areas. I would recommend them and be happy to have them again
