About

Wellness Is the Core of Our Mission As the first building in the greater San Diego area to be under consideration for WELL Building Certification, the Inn at Moonlight Beach goes far beyond what hotels and B&Bs are required to provide, to ensure that just being in our space gives you a boost in vital energy. From air filtration to the eco-memory foam king-size beds in each room, to the cleaning products we use and the fresh ingredients we pick from our biodynamically enabled garden out back, every detail is carefully considered with your wellness in mind. For a limited time, we are offering rooms at a discounted rate while renovation work is being completed on the Inn. There will be no breakfast or daily housekeeping service offered until the formal opening later this year.

Lovely homey overnight stay

5 on July 15, 2016

The Inn is lovely, not too upscale, exactly as it should be for a beach town, comfortable, and cozy. Nima greeted us warmly and he gave us a tour, answered questions, gave advice, and prepared a delicious extravagant breakfast for us all the next morning. They even have beach towels and boogie boards for you, and a coffeemaker in the room. What a nice place. We enjoyed it thoroughly, I I hope to take my daughter there soon for a getaway from the LA job grind. Oh try it~ you will love it too! (:


Relaxing, clean, beautiful

The inn was fantastic, we had a relaxing weekend in Encinitas, it's walking distance to downtown, great location. Helen made us breakfast every morning and gave us advice on local sites and suggestions. Would definitely come back.

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


A wonderful experience

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

Charming and delightful inn. Lovely property high on a hill overlooking the ocean.with beautiful large trees and plants.--giving a secluded feeling yet just a short walk to the beach and to great gourmet restaurants. Small, intimate, very special.Peg and Bob Lewis

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!


Outstanding!

My husband and I went to celebrate our November Birthdays and mostly to relax. The stay couldn't have been more restful. The place was immaculate and very serene, just what we were looking for. The room was cozy and the breakfasts were healthy and appetizing. We enjoyed the surrounding Encinitas area with it's small town and charming feel. There were plenty of fine restaurants to choose from and it was lovely to be able to stroll along the downtown area. We look to return soon, as everyone couldn't be any nicer.


Great place for the price! Quiet, safe, comfortable!

My daughter and I recently came to Southern Cal for a birthday trip for her. I found the Inn at Moonlight Beach online and was pleasantly surprised by the price! We stayed there 2 nights, driving about 45 minutes each way to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in between. I highly recommend staying here vs. a not-so-great-quality hotel for the same price, even if the hotel is closer to your destination! (Keep in mind that 3 stars means it met my expectations.)
