I am a medical/technical writer and my hubby, John, has several gourmet coffee kiosks in North San Diego county. We have two small friendly dogs and two cats. My best hobby is gardening, spending time with friends & family and of course the pets. I do a little yoga and love to go watch the dolphins. I ran a wonderful bed and breakfast in Singapore last year with my son - which was really fun and got us into the Airbnb family. That is why we decided to turn our little back yard cottage into a summer retreat for visitors. We have lived here for many years and love to let visitors in on the fun things to do around this special little town of Encinitas. It used to be the flower capital of the US but now is the yoga capital of the US - I think. Anyway, with our great weather, excellent close-by beach, beautiful gardens, lovely summer music in San Diego botanical garden just a mile away and so many great restaurants....you cannot go wrong. We love it here and so will you. It is peaceful, and beautiful in an Encinitas funky sort of way. Oh by the way, we serve excellent organic, fair-trade coffee every morning or if you are not a coffee drinker, you can pick your own peppermint or lemon verbena here for your tea. We look forward to seeing you soon.
