June Beach trip 2016
Francis G. from Riverside, California recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The facilities were very nice and we had a great time. If I had four complaints one would be that the hot tub is kind of a joke. It barely fit 3 adults in it. Secondly there were no shot glasses and the wine glasses were incredibly high up off the ground. Thirdly the knives needed to sharpened in the worst way possible. The last complaint was that we only had one tv that could access the cable and the wifi went out a few times. Other than that it was a great place to stay for a lot of people.
Randy R. from Las Vegas, Nevada recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 The perfect house for a large group with the perfect location.Everything was as good as viewed on the web site or better.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 I rented this place for an international team meeting this past week and could not be happier. The location, environment, and ambiance all played an essential role in conducting a productive meeting. Everyone, which included people from Finland, Brazil, Holland, Germany, Canada, Mexico, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, and the US, were all very excited to meet and work at this amazing house in Encinitas! The organization leading up to and after our stay was top knotch and will definitely be looking to Beachfront for future reservations!
Missi S. from Henderson, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2016 Our family was able to enjoy a multitude of activities while staying at this location, Disneyland, Legoland, morning runs on the beach, leisurely playtime on the beach and in the backyard. We had room for everyone to relax and even the dogs relaxed. Thank you so much Diana, for going the extra mile and talking to the owner to get approval for our dogs.
Kristine K. from Upland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 This is a clean and spacious home overlooking the ocean. It would easily sleep the 15 people and there are plenty of areas on the property to relax! Even the day it poured rain, we enjoyed watching the waves and the rain. Perfect location to access restaurants and Sea World. We hope to be able to come again. Thank you!!!
Kyla C. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 WOW! Just wow. From the minute we walked in the front door, that's all we said for about 10 minutes straight. The rental is in a very convenient location; walking distance to shops, coffee, restaurants and of course, the beach. The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, tons of space for everyone and incredible views all around.
Daniel C. from Vero Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Rented this as a base camp for my groomsmen and their dates for my wedding being held at the Encinitas botanical garden. The house is as described, only better. The patio area is much larger than it appears in photos, and the accommodations are outstanding. One thing - bring salt, pam, etc.. There were not any "leftover" kitchen supplies that you might find at other places, but no worries because there are plenty of stores nearby! We'll be back...
Joseph C. from Milwaukee, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Had a great time. The Condo was clean, had amazing views, great access to the ocean, and good space. The putting green was a fun add-on but the hot-tub was really shallow and small. The check-in and check-out policy is quite strict, and the access to the trash from our unit was non-existent, but overall this was a fantastic spot.
A guest from Riverside, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 Our family vacation for 11 was such a great time. Everyone had their our bedroom and bathroom which made it so convenient and comfortable. The location and view were perfect, such beautiful sunsets in the evening. It made for a wonderful time for all, we are talking about doing it again!Staff was extremely helpful and made the reservation process very easy.
A guest from Lafayette, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 We enjoyed the house and it was very well equipped. We were surprised that there was no air conditioning but we were lucky that the heat moderated and the fans were adequate. The location was excellent.
Matthew O. from Columbus, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 We rented the beach house during a family vacation and couldn't have had a better time. We have three children 5 and under and grandparents 65+, house was safe and enjoyable for all. We will definitely be back another time, a great experience.Also, the management company was always accommodating and available, first rate.
Stevie L. from Littlerock, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Our extended family vacay was one of the best ever. We loved the location...spectacular views, and right next to the beach trail. We had some small issues which were solved by a phone call and visit by staff. We would definitely come back!
A guest from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 This is the second time we have stayed and we love it. It is a beautiful house with an amazing view. I highly recommend staying!
David H. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We wanted a local place to stay on the beach. This place was perfect for our 9 adult children and spouses and 2 grandchildren. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the view. The terrace area was safe for the 11 month old to crawl about with the glass enclosure. the putting green was a hit. Having 5 baths was perfect for no post beach prep. Place is well equipped. the only add we would suggest is a garbage disposal and trash can located by the sink.
A guest from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 Beautiful! The pictures don't do it justice. House is very clean and well-stocked. Our party of 10 (5 couples) loved the privacy of the 5 bedrooms. 2 sets of washers & driers! Perfect views & you can't beat hearing the ocean as you wake up, eat and relax. Quiet neighborhood & everything you need is within walking distance except grocery stores & there are multiple options within a short drive.Only 2 negatives: 1) The hot tub was off when we arrived so it was unusable the 1st night while we waited for it to heat up. It should be hot and ready for guests.2) The coffee maker didn't work but the management company brought us a new one.We LOVED the house and already want to go back!
A guest from Menasha, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2015 All four of my kids, 2 spouses and one grandchild loved our stay in this house. The view is extraordinary; the kitchen well-sized for two chefs to work together and there is enough common and bedroom space to allow us to be together or separate as needed.It was a lovely five days in a great neighborhood.
Steve R. from Littleton, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Overall, this property is very nice and conforms with the information on the website. The location is great - nice neighborhood, incredible views, and a quick walk down the trail to the beach.On the positive side - the property is huge. plenty of room for a family or even families to spread out. Great kitchen which is fully equipped, though with all of the great restaurants in walking distance we only ate breakfast in the unit.Now for the negatives. The parking space allocated to the unit is a very narrow driveway. Only about two feet wider than the rental car, so everyone except the driver had to get out before we parked. And backing out of the driveway is "blind" because of the wall beside the driveway (and because the on street public parking basically pins you in to the driveway with mere inches on either side). Another thing to consider is that the hot tub on the back porch is a portable model that is much smaller than it looks in the picture. Made for two people, but maybe you can squeeze four into it.Another thing you should know is that all of the plumbing appears to be on sump pump. Because of this - I think - all of the bathroom sinks are raised up about 6 inches higher than normal. For the shorter people in our party, they had to stand on tip-toes to wash hands and brush teeth.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Steve, thank you for your review. We will be adding a rear-view type mirror to the driveway to make backing up easier and safer. The spa located at the property is a standard Solana Spa, meant for 4 adults. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Margaret and William K. from Galena, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2015 The house was most accomodating for our small family reunion. It had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. More than an adequate number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a nicely furnished kitchen and other amenities. Located on a bluff overlooking the beach with easy beach access and a beautiful view of the ocean. Great location with many nearby restaurants and attractions.
A guest from CINCINNATI, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 The vacation house is more exciting than the pictures! fully equipped, amazing view, and convinient location to restaurants, groceries, and highway.We stayed in the house in Feb, accomandating 11 family members, including kids and grandparents.... everybody loved the choice!thank you, manager and owner! We will come again.Winnie
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 We have stayed here twice. First for a 105th B-day and the 2nd for a 60th B-day. Being next to the ocean 24/7 is wonderful. We were outside almost as much as inside. Watching the sunset and moonset, surfers, dolphins and whales, kids playing below, reading or sleeping to the sound of the waves- ahhh, loved it! Plenty of space inside too. A favorite of mine was to get up early, turn on the instant fireplace have my cup of tea. Always great memories here for us, thanks!
Bunok K. from Venice, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 We stayed at this magnificent beachfront home for 4 days. The night we arrived, we had gotten in around 9pm and couldn't quite figure out how to use the key code entry (I was missing pressing a button :). Getting in touch with property management after hours was a breeze and we were inside in a matter of seconds. The location is just stunning. It overlooks the ocean in Encinitas. We watched whales spouting and dolphins jumping out of the water from the jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the sea. The home is equipped with anything you could possibly need. My Book Club goes on a retreat every year and this summer, I'm recommending 950 Neptune!The property management team is very professional and friendly and made for an easy check in and out. We highly recommend staying in this architecturally beautiful home!
Nathan C. from Monrovia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 This place is amazing! amazing location with an obvious incredible view. very close to great coffee shop & restaurants. located right next door to the parking lot at Beacons beach and beach access is right there. had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again.
A guest from Fort Collins, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 We came from 3 different states and had a wonderful time. The back yard was safe for the children and the views were amazing. The house was clean and well cared for. The only negative was the heat. We were there in 90 degree plus weather. Apparently no one uses air conditioning there. The management company did their best with providing fans. It was still uncomfortable and unbearable from 4-7pm. Also, the trek up and down the hill to the beach was tiresome. We would probably try and rent on the beach next time and not on a cliff above. We also had a day were locals came and took advantage of our backyard and trashed it. We called the management company and they came and put a lock and the gate to keep them out. It was a bit unnerving. But, even with the few mishaps the stay allowed us to be together and relax.
A guest from Newhall, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 Absolutely beautiful, relaxing and fantastic experience! It can't get closer to paradise! We will be back...hopefully every year. The property is very well kept, the neighborhood is a dream come true - steps from the beach and the best coffee shops and restaurants. The best beach experience so far....
Jeanne W. from Zephyrhills, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 The views are just amazing! The house was right on par with the views. We were very pleased. Our family of 9 (ages 39 - 2) fit perfectly, we actually had room to spare! The putting green was super fun for all ages. We love the patio area & that is where we spent most of our non-beach time. Like another review, we thought the hot tub was bigger that it is, but it is by no means small. We fit in it perfectly & enjoyed every minute of it! We live in Florida (for now!) so we are used to AC, but with the breeze it was better than AC. The beach access through Beacon's Beach is quite different than what we are used to, but we all got used to it the first day. The beach was just too perfect & so not crowded. Everyone was super friendly. Our kids had surfing lessons right on Beacon's Beach one day. I have to recommend / We had 5 kids in his surf lesson. He and his team were FABULOUS, so kind! After that 1 surf lesson, our kids were surfers! We even rented them boards for the rest of the week. The Beachfront Only staff was very helpful, but we did not need them much once we were booked. The place is pretty stocked with essentials. The only thing we would like to see is some beach toys. This rental helped to make our beach vacation one of the best!
Christy K. from Santa Monica, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Just stayed 4 nights at this location. Home is very well equipped and has easy access to the beach below via the lot next door. Putting green was great for the family of all ages. Would definitely stay here again. If you're tall you'll love it even more - high counter tops and shower heads positioned for a giant! Only downside was the upstairs unit was rented for 2 of the 4 nights we were there and we could hear a lot of noise from them. The jacuzzi is also pretty small and shallow, but it was fine considering only 2-3 people were in it at a time.
Arica D. from Henderson, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 We stayed at 2 properties in Encinitas, E059-0 & E808-0. Both homes are absolutely amazing. This was a girls reunion with college roommates. The entire process from booking to checkout was so easy. I loved the mobile app option to have all of our rental information (arrival/departure info, door access code, what is provided in the home) right on my phone. We had questions when we first checked in and 'Beach Front Only' was very easy to reach and promptly answered all of our questions. The homes are immaculate, spacious, have perfect deck/patio areas with amazing ocean views, fully stocked kitchens, and both are very close to the walking path that takes you down to the beach. The homes overlook a popular surf spot. We spent our afternoons watching surfers and saw numerous dolphins playing near the shore. I highly recommend booking your next vacation through 'Beach Front Only' and I would definitely stay in either of these 2 properties again. The location and experience are worth every penny!
John and Penny F. from Olympia, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 Beautiful weather, very noisy into late night Friday- Monday from across street and top of duplex. Few items in kitchen not working properly. Great beach access. Fits large family of 10 nicely. This is our second time renting a beach place in this area, and we love it, just might pick a different house or quieter weekend next time.
Kerry D. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 My family and I rented this amazing property to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday. Several of those in attendance came in from the east coast. It was wonderful seeing everyone's reactions as they entered the front door for the first time. Being able to watch the surfers and the dolphins during the day and the miraculous sunsets every night was breathtaking. There were several days where no one wanted to leave the house at all but whenever we did there was so much to do in the area. We especially loved the wine bar down the street, Solterre Winery & Kitchen. They have all asked if I can make renting this property a new annual family tradition. I hope to be back soon!
frank p. from palos park, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014 sliding doors hard to open.You can hear people above even though I was told unlikely.Next to parking lot for surfers sometimes cars pull up with music very load early in the morning.
carol p. from san diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 It was amazing. I took my girls to the beach for a week of healing. Their dad recently died. The house was amazing. There was so much room for everyone to have their own space. Everything was so nice. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Not once did I reach for something and did not find what I needed. The home was clean and homey. We are coming back next year for longer.
Lynn R. from Duvall, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2013 Beautiful, clean, extremely comfortable! We had a little trouble figuring out the light switches, but otherwise, a wonderful vacation! My boys loved the golf green. Highly recommend.
A guest from Park City, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 We loved everything about this unit except there was a lot of noise from the unit above. The floor is tile and we could hear every footstep, a chair being moved, people talking. Even so... we might go back again and cross our fingers that nobody is renting upstairs!
TJ B. from , FL recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2013 Loved it, always have.Great Location, beautiful views.Just a few minor issues:Would be nice if some basic kitchen expendables were left behind by previous renters, i.e. : Tin Foil, Zip Lock bags, Sugar, spices, etc. not necessary, but that would be nice.A lot of the electrical outlets did not work. with all of the electronics we travel with now a days, everybody is looking for power, everywhere !We did see several rats on the back porch, one was actually in the BBQ grill. Didn't really bother me personally, and I know they live right there on the hill, but maybe there is some kind of deter-ant ???Hoping to be back SOON !!!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals We have fixed all electrical outlets. Thanks for letting us know! We do try to control the outdoor critters as best we can but Mother Nature.
A guest from Carlsbad, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in July, 2013 Amazing property with a view to die for. We didn't think we'd use the ocean-view putting green but it was a big hit with everyone. Lots of room for a big group with plenty of nice bathrooms. A few minor complaints - dim lighting, not enough food storage in kitchen, and a tiny closet in the ocean-view master - but we all had a wonderful time. The condo was immaculate and the management company was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this property to friends.
A guest from Coto De Caza, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Three families (6 adults/5 kids) enjoyed this property and there was plenty of space for us all. We enjoyed being able to walk to dinner each night at a variety of terrific restaurants. A great beach vacation!!
A guest from Winston Salem, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We would not have enjoyed this property if the property above us had been occupied. This is a duplex. However, since no one was staying above us, we enjoyed staying on the patio, which is where we stayed the majority of the time. The putting green and ample seating added greatly to the comfort.
Robert P. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 This property lived up to our expectations and then some. It was the perfect setting for our family and we wouldn't change anything about our stay..except we weren't ready to leave when our 5 days were up!
A guest from Trabuco Canyon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 From the first moment we spoke over the phone to Sheva from the Team at Beachfront Only Vacation Rentals, we were very impressed. Sheva was knowledgable, professional, caring and extremely helpful with all of our questions about the area and the property. We will rent again here very soon it was that good!! The only reason why we gave 4 starts under the category of "property clean" instead of 5, is that we suggest you clean the carpets in the bedrooms because our feet and socks were dirty after walking around. The staff was very attentive; for example, we had a very minor problem with the barbecue. After a quick phone call they had a person out immediately to make the necessary adjustments and the barbecue worked well after that. Outstanding ocean views, weather was excellent, numerous dolphin and seal sightings directly in front of us in the ocean, the walk down to the beach was easy and convenient. Our family really enjoyed the beach and related water activities. We strongly recommend this property and we will be back soon!! Thanks for a wonderful vacation experience.
Mitchell P. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2013 Upon arrival we were blown away with the location, size and overall appointments and ammenities. Everyone in the group took down the rental information for their own use in the future!
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013 We had a wonderful time in Encinitas. The location couldn't have been better -- easy access from highway, on the beach, easy access to playgrounds, grocery stores, and them parks. Its a very strange house - for instance, all the kitchen and bathrooms counters are above chest height -- built for a family of giants? And the layout is odd. But the location and hot tub were all that mattered!
A guest from Mercer Island, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2012 great staff support from dina. good location for daily walks on the beach. the stereo was not working but would have enjoyed music. would have been helpful to have non-perishables available such as coffee filters, Ziploc bags, tin foil etc. additional lighting in the kitchen and front rooms would be helpful. Overall, a great stay and will recommend to others!
A guest from Murray, utah recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012 We vacationed in California as a family in December 2012.Upon walking in the front door we all gasped at the beautiful view! The wall of sliding doors providing a unobstructed view of the ocean was amazing! Each room was clean and properly appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable stay! The only suggestion we would have would be more lighting in the kitchen. Having said that, the kitchen was beautiful and fun to cook in. It also had a large window facing the ocean that made washing the dishes a treat! We enjoyed sitting in the Jacuzzi while listening to the crashing of the ocean waves below us. There were plenty of chairs in the backyard for outside lounging and it was a great place to enjoy a morning hot chocolate. At night as we watched movies together on the large flat screen TV we enjoyed the coziness of the gas fireplace. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay! We recommend this home and company to anyone who is looking for a place to stay on the beach! 5 stars!
A guest from Leucadia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Relatives from French Canada came for a week, our house is not big enough so we rented this. They all loved it, did not want to leave. They kitchen is roomy and well equipped. There's a large common area to socialize, have meals, etc. They view and the deck are spectacular.
Jan H. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 This was our first experience with BeachFront Only and we will definately return to one of your properties next year ! The propery is excellent. I have only 2 suggestions.1) Tile all of carpeted areas as carpet is not hygenic.2) Put a lock on the gate from the carport to the back yard for security reasons - anyone can currently walk right into the back yard which prevented us from sleeping with the sliding door open to enjoy the ocean air.
A guest from Long Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 We spent a lovely but too-short 5 days enjoying the beach with lots of friends and family. The view was astonishing! The whole Pacific lies right there. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins swimming leisurely through the kelp beds one evening.The unit is perfect for adults older kids who can go back and forth to the beach on their own. Little kids and our older parents found the path to the beach a bit difficult. Our teen and young adult children invited friends, and they were up and down the cliff all day to swim, boogie board, surf, and sunbathe, then up for snacks, hot tub, board games, and shade. Kahuna Bob gives surf lessons each morning right below the house, which should be arranged a few days in advance. Our stay was during a rare startling heat wave, and the upstairs loft was too hot to use, but the kids made do with the sofa bed and an air mattress. Extra linens and pillows were conveniently provided. The kitchen is fairly well-equipped, with a gas grill on the patio, and efficient dishwasher. There are two washers and three dryers, which seemed excessive until we needed to wash a few loads at once. The lighting in the kitchen and dining areas is funky - a dimmer would be nice.We were concerned about noise and parking. However, we found that the neighborhood is surprisingly quiet at night -thanks to strict city ordinances. 3 small cars fit in the driveway, with another in front when needed. Things to bring: binoculars, extra beach towels, board games (although there are a few in the unit), paper towels for kitchen and bathrooms, toilet paper, cutting boards if you cook a lot, a queen air mattress for the sofabed, and a movie or two.
Tasteful and comfortable duplex with very high countertops!
A guest from Santa Fe, NM recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 The house is really nice and we enjoyed our vacation thoroughly. We're somewhat puzzled, however, by the height of the countertops throughout the house. It was seemingly built for giants.
A guest from Baton Rouge, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2012 We had a family get together at this home in May and really enjoyed the home and location. Easily sleeps 10 people, beautiful view and location. We would certainly recommend this home to others.
Lalin D. from Glendale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 The property needs some repair and maintenance. The blinds in the rooms were in disrepair, the toilet handle in one of the bathrooms was loose, the BBQ needs repair, and you should add a iPhone compatible docking station. This is our 5th or 6th visit and it's always nice but the weather did not cooperate.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The blinds have been repaired, the toilet handle has been repaiared, and the BBQ has been repaired. Thank you for your feedback ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Berthoud, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2012 The view was wonderful. We saw dophins playing in the sea weed beds every morning, and a sea lion on the rock beneath "our" cliff on the last morning of our stay.
A guest from Maple Valley, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 What a great experience. This property is everything and them some of what we expected when we rented it. The view, comfort, and access to local amenities were all superior. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. This is a definite five star residence.
Scott G. from portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 The house was beautiful. The 5 bedrooms and 5 baths gave everyone plenty of room and privacy, but the layout of the house kept everyone together for dinner and visiting. It was a beautiful location. Couldn't be easier to get down to the beach. Encinitas is a very cute town as well. We'll be back!
A guest from Omaha, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2012 The blinds adjustment pendant in the master bedroom was missing, so the blinds couldn't be closed. The hot tub was too hot, and we could not find the thermostat for it. Overall we loved the view and the location relative to golf courses in the area.
A guest from Billings, MT recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2012 The view was beautiful of the sunset and the ocean. We had a whale spotting along with several dolphins and many surfers. The rental property was perfect for a large family and the putting green and hot tub kept them occupied. Overall we had a great stay and would like to return in the future.
INGRID M. from MIami, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2011 The ocean view was THE BEST THING to have. Well equipped kitchen and cleaning supplies, although I would add coffee filters.I didn't like that one of the bathrooms had wall to wall carpet. I personally think that is not very hygienic.Fits a lot of people comfortably.We would definitely rent again.
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 I rented this home for my birthday, as a pre-Thanksgiving celebration with friends. It was such a beautiful, special experience. The property is lovely and spacious. For dinner, I made a rack of lamb + appetizers and soup. The kitchen was impressively equipped with the pots, pans and flatware I needed. I truly felt as comfortable as being in my own home...I just had a much much better view with the vacation rental! :) The Beach access was great--the home is right next to Beacon's Beach in Encinitas. We had fun watching the surfers and watching the dolphins playing in the water. It was also gorgeous watching the sunset from the patio, which overlooks the ocean. A few of us even used the putting green on the patio--that and the hot tub are a really nice perk! Again, it was a truly special experience and I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to share the home and the experience with my best friends.
A guest from Baltimore, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2011 The property was located directly next to the beach access. Amazing unobstructed views. Walking distance to small shops and restaurants. Located a short drive from the town of Encinitas. Rental company was easy to work with but I had called to see of we could check in an hour early and never got a call back. When I called again the lady told me she would call back but never did... Otherwise they were great and we had a fantastic week.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals We apologize for not getting back to you. The hour before check in gets really busy. We do offer early check in for a fee that is scheduled in advance. Thank you for your feedback ~ The Team at Beachfront Only
Sherry S. from Shawnee, Kansas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 We enjoyed every minute of our stay! The home was perfect for our family gathering - spotless, well equipped and a to die for view of the ocean - sunsets are amazing! We're considering making this an annual event! Thanks again for everything!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for choosing Beachfront Only for your accommodation and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 My family and I really enjoyed the property and the view. The location is beautiful as advertised. The house is clean and everything inside the house is new and worked properly.
A guest from Tempe, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 We have a large family and we had plenty of room for the kids that surfed, boogy boarded, biked, putted, read and just relaxed. Great location and the house was amazing!
A guest from N. Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 Great customer service, steep discount for last minute trip (less than 24hrs), VERY spacious home, each room having access to outside. ONLY downside for us was no direct access to beach since it sits up on a cliff.
Wilfried W. from Grafenau, Germany recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 Ausstattung und Beschreibung entsprechen den Beach Front angaben. Relaxe Tage direkt am Meer in nähe zu Sa Diegeo , Sea World und Premium Outlet.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Danke für die Wahl Beachfront Nur, und wir hoffen, dass Sie bald wieder!
Margaret P. from North Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 Our family loved the house, the proximity to the beach, and especially the putting green! We would stay there again! The only negative was the weather.....we hoped for sunnier and warmer. But that did not affect our joy at just being together as a family! Terrific house for the 10 of us!
A guest from Lake Forest, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2011 Home was exactly as pictured - very clean with plenty of room and an awesome view! The beach was public and not clean like a private beach would be - access was next door at a public entry, which our kids, all in their 20's, didn't seem to mind. But all in all a very nice stay!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. All of the San Diego beaches are public and Beacon's Beach receives 4-5 Star reviews on YELP! We hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 Enjoyed a reunion of 5 long-time friends and the celebration of a birthday at this beautiful beachfront home. So relaxing and beautiful. Spacious, warm, and inviting with all the amenities of "home". VERY high counter tops, so great for the tall folks among us! =) The views are amazing ~ did not even feel like leaving the house to go anywhere else! Dolphins swam by frequently among the surfers and kayakers. Loved all the stones on the beach. Some comments among us were: feel rejuvenated... like being at a spa for the weekend. Only disappointment was that the sliding glass doors in the master were jammed shut and a call into the property manager resulted in someone coming by to fix it - 24 hrs later. On a weekend stay this was way too long for that to have been taken care of. Would have been nice to have those doors open all weekend instead of just the last rainy night of our stay. Otherwise loved staying here. Would definitely come back. Never have to leave and you feel like you are on vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The doors have been repaired.
Dawna T. from Wilcox, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2010 We were a family of 12 ages 73 - 2, we stayed for a week. The house was very clean & comfortable. Great location in between Legoland & Seaworld. We caught the train in Encinitas, one day & road down to Old town & Sea Port Village. We had plenty of room for the little ones to run. We really didn't have any bad comments for the house it was a great family vacation. Thanks Beach Front Only Rentals.
A guest from Tulsa, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 Overall we were very pleased with the property and enjoyed our stay. The accommodations, view and amenities were very nice. There are a couple of items that need repair. Two of the three sliding glass doors had either a missing or inoperable screen, hence we had to fight flies the entire week, as the property is not air conditioned. Also, there are a few missing slats on the master bedroom foor-to-ceiling blinds, which effect privacy from people on the patio. One minor issue with the property manager. We had arranged for a crib to be set up in one of the bedrooms by a service recommended by the property manager. When the service set up the crib before our arrival, a representative of the property manager would not let them set up the crib in the bedroom we had selected because of cleaning activities. As a result, upon arrival we had to have the service come back and move the crib. The views from the property are fabulous, but beach access is a bit of a hassle. The walk down the switchback trail carrying supplies and herding children is not easy, but it is manageable.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The screens and sliders have all been fixed.
Tamara M. from Brooklyn, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 Our only complain was the weather! San Diego County is supposed to be sunny! June Gloom took an extended vacation in Southern California this year. But our house was beautiful, the views stunning, and the rental agency very helpful! Thanks for a wonderful trip!
Thomas P. from West Grove, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2010 Our family came to Encinitas for our son's wedding. The rental home was spectacular...breathtaking views of the ocean, roomy family space to gather, very clean and the putting green was a nice touch. We enjoyed hours of fun competing in the Neptune Open. The BeachFront management was very attentive and called several times during the week to make sure we were happy and offered any help we needed. I was particularly surprised and releived when a staff member showed up and moved all of our trash cans out for pick up. That was a big plus and greatly appreciated. We loved our week so much we have already booked the same property for March of 2011. Thanks from the Pitts family!
Gary M. from North York, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2010 The home is spacious and well kept. The views are spectacular! Easy access to I5 and a quick drive to San Diego. All around, it was a great stay and would recommend it to anyone.
A guest from Houtston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2009 Really enjoyed our stay at 950 Neptune. The property was outstanding. Lots of room, good location, very convenient, and outstanding view. Thanks!
A guest from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2009 Great space for a large family reunion. The only things needing improvement were the parking (too tight and seperate parking spot at least a mile away from the house) and the dishwasher (did not clean.)
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The dishwasher in this property has been replaced.
Nancy M. from St. Charles, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2009 After our 3rd yoga retreat in "OUR" beautiful home, we can't wait to do it again in 2010. We may be booking more than one week. Everyone who is connected to Beachfront Only, from booking the date, housekeeping and property manager all were helpful and pleasant! Thank you again for another dream vacation.
George H. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2009 This has been a great place for our family to gather once a year for many years now. We had switched to a newer Oceanside property for couple of year, but returned here because the beach is much nicer for the little ones in the family, and the waves less dangerous. The adult children and I have always liked the view from the balconies of the upper floors with immediate sense of beach smells and sounds when we step out from the living room. The other properties have their benefits, but for now the Neptune property is perfect for us.
Erika M. from Redwood City, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2009 Everything was great except for the fact that the ice machine of the refrigerator did not work, the dishwasher did not clean the dishes well (we had to repeat the cycle more than once) and the bed sheets were not cotton. Other than that it was great.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The ice maker has been fixed, and the dishwasher has been replaced with a new one.
Claudia S. from Dillon, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 The space was adequate for the 9 of us. We had a great time and are looking into booking this home on a yearly basis.
Diane M. from Castro Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 Loved our stay at 950 Neptune. The neighbors in upstairs unit were a bit noisy (you can hear 952 noise) but thankfully quieted down at night. Beyond that, no complaints. Great location, great view, great beach. We'll be back. Thank goodness there is parking with the unit. It can be pretty hairy with cars and people in the parking lot next door.

Please count us as a resource for you if you are ever having issues with your next door neighbor. We appreciate your business and we hope to see you again soon! -The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Woodlands, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2009 View of coastline is not as good as other places I have stayed and the beach is not as nice. It is much nicer a little further south. Property management indicated parking was limited and would be a problem and discouraged staying at this location. It was not an issue as people parked in front of the condo all the time.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2008 The house was great for our family trip. The only thing that was a minor issue for us is that the walk to the beach is about 5 switchbacks downhill and my father had a hard time walking back up.

Nancy M. from St. Charles, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008 Our yoga retreat and all of the attendees were so pleased with "OUR BEACH HOUSE"/ We will be back next year! Thanks again for a perfect vacarion/retreat! A few of us filled out comments individually on the sheet at the house.
A guest from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 It was the perfect place for all of our family to spend time together. Everything was furnished. It was like being home!
Candi D. from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 This was the first time my grandchildren had ever meet each other. This was the perfect property to hold my two children and their kids. We will definitely rent through BeachOne again.
Phenomenal Ocean View!!! Doesn't get any better than this
Colleen C. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2008 Great home, the layout is great. Our 2nd time here and we love it. We bring our lab and golden retriever and they love it as well. Need a few more loung chairs out back to relax and enjoy the million dollar view. Will definitely be back!
Joni G. from Bonita, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2008 the only thing that was a problem was no detailed disription of how to play the CD's we brought.The booklets were very helpful on other subjects reguarding the home and neighboring restaurants and bussinesses.Tipically though, we stayed around the house and beach as those were the features that drew us there!

Shirley K. from Sierra Vista, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2007 Overall it was a very nice resort house. The fires in San Diego put a damper on the stay in terms of air quality, cleaniness etc. We were fortunate it didn't come any closer to us.
Nancy M. from St. Charles, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2007 This location, property management and location is the BEST. I have researched 100's of places for our yoga retreat and this is the most beautiful place
Burton A. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007 You jacked the rates too high. we'll come back if you reduce rates, and get rid of the Grea5t whites!
