What a welcome! Fruit bowl, chips & Salsa, beer in the fridge:) what more could a girl ask for? House was immaculate! Perfect space for us and the dogs. Great beach town location, but close to freeway, dual paned windows helped. Would definitely stay again if we have another dog show in the area.
We were very impressed with the generosity of our host, Michelle. She gave attention to details such as supplying organic eggs, popcorn and fresh flowers. When I inquired beforehand if she happen to have any bikes, she said she was sorry, no. I said that was ok, we would rent some, but then she emailed back to me that she got two for us! Like everything else in the cottage, they appeared to be brand new. The entertainment center had about 50 DVD's. Everything was very clean and comfortable.
Michelle was an amazing host, extremely kind, generous (not only she left some food for us in the kitchen but she borrowed a specific sunscreen to one of the friends traveling with me) and very reliable. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed, very pretty and clean.
The apt. was just as pictured. It was new and clean and crisp and showed a real pride in ownership. The apt. was well appointed and well stocked with unexpected extras like mineral water, OJ, English Muffins, coffee. I could go on. The main room was bigger than expected with lots of room for spreading out, movie watching, cooking. The bedrooms were attractive, the beds comfy with extra pillows and beach towels. The weather in Encinitas was unusually hot and humid the week of our visit. The bind was to find the balance between the need to open the windows, especially at night, to let in the cooler air and to close the windows to block the noise from the freeway. All the fans were appreciated and used.
Michelle's beach cottage was perfect. It was in a great location for us (next door to the wedding we attended and an easy walk to the beach/downtown). The cottage itself was great - very clean, cute, and comfortable. It was very hot inside while we were visiting, but the last night we discovered the fans which were wonderful and brought the bedrooms to a comfortable temperature while sleeping. As a few others have mentioned, you can hear the freeway as it is quite close by, but the windows block the sound well. Thanks for a great stay Michelle!
We thought the stay was really great besides it being close to the freeway but once your inside you can't till that the freeway is just outside. The space is very close to the beach and very homely. Perfect for a cozy private getaway. Thank u for considering us.
Michelle made us feel very welcome by providing toys, a pack n play, a high chair, a changing station, and lots of fresh fruit and snacks. The unit is stylishly decorated, and the beds were very comfortable. Michelle was very responsive when I had questions about the unit. We enjoyed our stay very much!
The minute we walked into Michelle's place, my wife and I wished we were staying there a week instead of just a few days. Everything everyone else says is true. This place is tastefully decorated and comfortable and so much thought has been put into making your stay relaxing. Softer towels than I got in an expensive hotel, food and beverages we were happy to consume after a long drive, and lots of good magazines and books to thumb through. Michelle was incredibly responsive and when Cal Trans decided to trim some trees along the freeway during our stay, she voluntarily offered us a discount. Freeway noise as others note is very minimal and not an issue at all. Encinitas is a perfect vacation spot and this cottage is in a beautiful neighborhood. Michelle's food recommendations were all great. We'll be back to stay again and eat at all the places we couldn't get to.
Michelle was a great host! We arrived to find that she had left us breakfast treats in the fridge and a guide of places to go in the area. When we had a problem with the TV one night, we came back to the cottage the next day to find they had replaced the entire tv right away! Finally when we forgot an item, Michelle went out of her way to mail it back to us! The cottage is decorated super cute and is very comfortable, was perfect for 4 women enjoying a relaxing trip! The cottage does back to the freeway so if you are a light sleeper, do yourself and favor and take earplugs-it helped all of us!
Between Michelle's description and the reviews, we knew exactly what to expect and we were not disappointed. The property was perfect for our small group; two bedrooms and a pull out sofa accommodated us perfectly. The place was clean, pleasant, bright, and inviting. It is next to the interstate, but that didn't bother any of us - the windows sealed out the noise.
Michelle was a fantastic host, providing all the little things that make a stay so much easier. Snacks for our arrival, soap and shampoo, even movies that the kids could watch. She even dropped off some fans when the humidity was higher than usual, to make sure that we were comfortable. Michelle's guidebook to local restaurants and shopping was spot on - we tried several of the restaurants and they were all excellent.
The unit itself was fantastic. Modern, stainless appliances, a gas range, and a washer and dryer made cooking and cleaning as easy as at home. The pots, pans, glass ware, etc. were a step or two above what I would expect in a rental. The bathroom had slate floors. And everything was perfectly clean.
The real star of this property, however, is the location. It is close to the beach, shopping, LEGOLAND, and other attractions. Perfect for what we needed and I'd recommend it for anyone visiting the area.
Michelle is an awesome guest! The home was left very clean and she did not ask for much. I would undoubtedly host her again.
Perfecto, totalmente recomendable contar con ella, muchas gracias por tu estancia!
