The pretty community of Encinitas provides many reasons to linger: good swimming and surfing beaches, small-town atmosphere, an abundance of charming shops, and a seasonal display of the region’s most beautiful flowers - poinsettias. Encinitas is a getaway of a lifetime, no question. With Owner Direct Vacation Rentals, you’ll get to stay in this seaside vacation destination that has something for everyone. Find accommodations ideal for families, honeymoon getaways, surfers and watersports enthusiasts, or even retreats. Choose from cottages, apartments, fully furnished condo rentals, or house rentals.

Any vacation rental you choose will give you access to almost everything! The most important part - being a few steps from the beach and making sure you sleep and wake up to the sound and sight of the spectacular Pacific Ocean. You, your family or friends will definitely have ample space when it comes to bedrooms and bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and dining area, deck, patio or balcony - some even have an outdoor shower. Once you or the kids have burned out all that energy from the water or the beach, you can lounge in large living rooms while staying warm with the help of the fireplace. Keep your clothes clean during and after your stay with the washer and dryer, and there’s a garage for easy parking. Not to mention being a couple of blocks away from Moonlight Beach, Old Historic Downtown Encinitas shops, restaurants and nightlife, easy access to Interstate 5 and Highway 101, the Del Mar Race Track, the stunning Torrey Pines State Reserve and Torrey Pines Golf Course are also just beyond the doorsteps. A little farther, just a quick drive, and you can get to San Diego favorites like Sea World, Old Towne, San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Petco Park, and Downtown Gaslamp District.

In addition to surfing, sunbathing, and beach volleyball, San Diego Botanic Gardens (formerly called “Quail”) is an oasis of trees, forests, flowers and plants that guests can wander past, learn about and enjoy. The botanic garden claims to have the largest bamboo collection in the US. Watch surfers or dive in yourself at Beacon’s Beach. Batiquitos Lagoon is 1.5 miles away for peaceful hikes, birdwatching and fishing. Have breakfast or coffee at the neighborhood bakery called French Corner - their croissants are simply perfect! For fresh seafood, visit Fish 101. Leucadian Pour House offers ice-cold beer and creative cocktails. To satisfy your sweet tooth, Leucadia Donut Shoppe makes the best apple fritters, cake doughnuts and cinnamon rolls. To burn all of those carbs, get a quick hike at San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve.

The weather in Southern California is pretty perfect all year round, specifically July through September - which is the sunniest time of the year. But while it’s pretty much pure bliss year round, bouts of rain are common in the spring, known as May Gray or June Gloom, so always check the forecast before flying in from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) or by car - just off Interstate Highway 5, take the Encinitas Blvd. exit. What are you waiting for? Choose the rental that suits you.
