Farm stay in Elfin Forest
Cozy Retreat on Cherimoya Grove
Relax and unwind on a small family farm and cherimoya grove of over 100 cherimoya fruit trees. Interact with, feed, and brush the resident horse “Shadow,” pigs, chickens, and rooster. The room’s balcony overlooks the cherimoya grove and horse paddock. Located just outside of San Elijo Hills, the property is a close drive to Encinitas downtown and beaches, LEGOLAND, and San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park. While the farm feels far away, about a mile away are a grocery store, coffee shop, and wine bar.

Cottage in Carlsbad
By the beach-Cute Coastal Craftsman w/king beds
This wonderfully redone historic cottage, just five houses from the water (near arguably the best beach in Carlsbad-“The Point”) was once owned by one of the true founders of Carlsbad. Originally built in Carlsbad village in the 1920’s, the house was moved to its current location in 1933, by Ms. Mary Christensen. We have artfully remade the space while preserving elements of the vintage charm of this Sears and Roebuck Craftsman catalogue-ordered cottage. Book now! You’ll love being here.
