Dave's house in Encinitas was the perfect house for our four-person family with two very young kids. It was extremely family friendly, incredibly relaxing, and minutes from the beach (which even has a playground ON THE BEACH!).
Dave and his family even left us the perfect amount and mix of kid toys, books (which were an especially big hit with our kids), and beach equipment including a boogie board, sand tools, beach towels, and more.
Both of the TVs came setup with a Roku that we could stream Netflix, Hulu, and other content with. The upstairs TV also had cable channels as well.
Wifi was also included with our stay. The wifi was not the fastest I've ever used, but it was perfectly adequate for our vacation.
We were provided very clear instructions on the house rules of our stay, exit procedures, how things worked in the house, when to take out the trash, etc.
The neighborhood was a gated neighborhood with no through-traffic, which made it very calm and peaceful. The neighbors were so friendly. Our kids were invited several times to play with the neighbor's kids. We felt like we had just moved in and were a part of their beautiful community.
We loved our stay at Dave's place so much, my wife has tried to figure out where all the décor/furniture came from (it was decorated in very clean, refreshing styles and colors that reminded us of a calm day on the beach), we started looking at homes in the area, and we are already planning on having a longer stay in the future.
We did not want to leave. It was the best vacation we have ever had.
