Holiday Rental House
Come to California, oceanfront just north of San Diego. Terrific house, with an indoor heated lap pool for the kids to enjoy! Children love this house, and adults love the fabulous views! Two patio decks, one on the first level, and one above outside the master bedroom for privacy! The master King bed faces the oceanfront, as well as the twin bedroom upstairs, and the queen bedroom beneath. The fourth bedroom is huge, with a queen and a double bed. It makes a great teen bedroom! Or grandma sharing with one of the kids. This house has a first floor at ground level, a huge parking garage as well as parking in the drive. Located central to downtown Encinitas, you can easily walk to all! Shopping, dining, and the beach access.

This vacation rental company based right there in Encinitas is treating its renters poorly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Please know that Chris Sprangers, owner of Vacation Beach Rentals, manages eight beachfront properties in Encinitas. She has been absolutely terrible to renters during this time of Covid-19. I was scheduled to visit Encinitas on March 17-24 from Iowa. My brother lives in Encinitas! I have stayed in the city many times over the last decade and rented many houses. I love it! When I called to cancel my reservation because the CA Governor was issuing a stay-at-home order, I was told that Vacation Beach Rentals doesn't allow cancellations. I explained the situation and asked if we could at least change our dates. They reluctantly came around to that idea. Let's remember at this point ... Governor Newsom had issued a stay-at-home order. There was no way I could receive my benefit of the contract anyway. In the end, Chris required me to provide documentation from my doctor in Iowa that it was not advised to travel on March 17. Again please remember the state had issued a stay at home order. The property couldn't even be cleaned legally! Then when I did change my dates, even though Chris had not refunded any of my $4747.47, she issued a new contract with an updated cancellation policy saying I could never change my dates again and they would not allow cancellation for any reason. She changed the contract but held on to my money which is illegal. Then she tried to offer me a "force majeure" clause that only covered severe weather (not pandemics). Eventually she retracted to the original form of the contract but put into writing (in an email) that she would not be allowing me to change my dates ever again. At that point I requested another refund but she only gave me a 50% refund. So Chris and Vacation Beach Rentals have $2,373.74 of my money for doing nothing but answering my emails. I tried contacting the owner directly who had no idea any of this was happening and seemed to be willing to offer me a full refund. Unfortunately, due to circumstances Chris cut off communication between the two of us. Chris is not an upstanding individual. This is a shameful time to take advantage of renters and I would avoid any of this company's properties at all costs.

I found the home to be a terrific value. The floorplan was a bit weird, a pool in the kitchen and a twin bedroom attached to the master suite, for example. However, if I didn't need those beds, the second floor is awesome. Albeit, the second floor as is the whole house is rustic - and maybe in need of some minor renovations. For example, we had issues with the sliding doors not sliding and the outdoor lights not working. The owner or property manager did have someone come out and fix the lights which I appreciated. In the end, the home is very spacious and comfortable, and you cannot beat those views from every single room... that was impressive. The kitchen, living room, dining room layout are perfect for larger groups. The accommodations left us feeling like we were home. The accommodations were very comfortable. The "neighbors to the north" complained to the property manager at 10:11 on Saturday night. I feel this was inappropriate. My family was in the house by 10:30 without knowing about the complaint. We're on vacation, before 11:00, on a Saturday night - lighten up! The property manager and the entire transaction was smooth, professional, and I fully intend on calling Chris S. (and Eileen) again for a future rental. They were very pleasant to work with.

The house and views are wonderful! The house could use some upgrades but really needs better cleaning, but that might have been because they had done it in a rush to get me in. The house more then met our needs and the pool was wonderful for my husband and son and I really appreciate that!

You are so right! You checked in before the housekeepers could double check the work done, and it was not completely ready. They were rushed. Thank you for noting the issue. We do appreciate feedback

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in this fantastic home! It is spacious, comfortable and has a fantastic deck overlooking the Pacific ocean. The home's location could not be better. With a short walk you can be on the beach or among the shops and restaurants of Encinitas. The views from its perch atop the bluffs provides wonderful views and great privacy without compromising easy beach access. The indoor pool gives you the option of a great workout or relaxation. And the rental agency that handled our booking could not have been more flexible and accommodating. Beds were very comfortable. One of the highlights for us was watching the pelican fly right in front of us up and down the coast. Also, watching the dolphins ride the waves. We will not hesitate to return when we are back in the San Diego area. Thanks again for sharing your lovely home. Regards, Roslyn

The view is simply breathtaking. The home was very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for entertaining and my kids loved swimming in the heated pool! The home could use a little updating (ie. sliding doors, decor) but we would be happy to return to this residence.

We were very happy with this property. The kids loved the pool and the short walk to Moonlight Beach and its playground. The adults loved the upper deck (both were great but the upstairs just rocks) and the 3 block walk to awesome restaurants and unique shopping boutiques. We didn't want to leave!
