About

Our romantic little Inn is perched on a hillside above Moonlight Beach overlooking both the Pacific Ocean and our quaint beach town of Encinitas. It's a magical place of sand, sea, sun and surf. There are no other San Diego Bed & Breakfasts closer to the ocean. Our rooms and suites recall a lovely European Seaside Inn - each is ultra-fresh-and-clean with plush linens, private bathroom, free wi-fi, cable TV, refrigerator and coffee maker with Starbucks coffee. Each morning we bake warm-from-the-oven pastries for you to enjoy with your home-made breakfast. All this, yet our prices are $50-$75 less than similar accommodations.

And they even provided a full moon

Our stay was lovely. The hosts even provided a full moon for our evening promenades on Moonlight Beach. Wonderful.


A wonderful experience

4.6 on January 02, 2013

A friend and I stayed for 3 nights in early December. The inn was charming and our room was clean. Perfect location for walking into town and to the beach. Breakfasts were delicious and abundant. Ann and Terry were friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend staying at the Inn at Moonlight Beach and will be returning when in the area again. Rebecca M., from CT

Moonlight Inn

4.4 on December 30, 2012

A lovely clean place very close to the beach and down town Encinitas. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and it is well set up for storing and washing surfboards if you've come to the area to surf.


A Restful Place

I was so pleased with my stay here in early December. The size was perfect, the food was beautiful, the atmosphere warm and inviting and carefree. I would return in a minute!
