Both just a quick hop to the Villa de La Valle Station which services the Del Mar Track. Enjoy all that San Diego and North County have to offer. Only 2 Blocks to Grandview beach, a premier surfing spot and beach. Play in the waves, and return to the house to rinse off the sand with the outdoor shower, warm up in the back yard hot tub and cozy on the couch. The french doors open to allow for gatherings from the kitchen to backyard. Enjoy happy hour on the upper deck overlooking the beauty of the Pacific and giving a 360-degree aerial view. There are many private nooks in this home providing rest and relaxation during your stay.
This location is the best of both worlds. You have the option put away your car keys and walk to Encinitas’ finest restaurants, shops and beaches. But you are also close driving distance to Legoland, Sea World, Historic Balboa Park, The San Diego Zoo, and Disneyland is an hour away—worth the day trip. So many activities to be had, but sometimes the best is to just settle in and beach it!
