San Elijo State Beach is only a tenth of a mile away from us, meaning you and your furry friend can easily walk over to the beach every day of your stay. Whether your dog is a water dog or not, they’ll love walking along the coastal trails or rolling around in the sand. With new trails also comes new smells, which your dog is sure to love!

Once your dog is done romping around in the waves, take your dog next door to Encinitas’ cutest dog boutique, Pupologie. Here you can wash off your furry friend so that they’re nice and clean when they come back to the room to snuggle with you. Once your dog is freshly groomed, explore Pupologie’s amazing selection of unique dog foods from bone broth to protein sticks and freeze dried foods guaranteed to satisfy your fur baby’s cravings. Maybe even pick up something special for your dog to play with like a new rope toy or an antler to chew on.

Ki’s Restaurant is a favorite among locals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With a menu that goes on and on, everyone in the group is sure to find something they’ll like whether it’s fresh sushi, a savory sandwich, or home baked goods. Ki’s offers patio seating, overlooking the beach, which means your pup can sit with you as you enjoy your meal. With beautiful, Instagrammable food, this café is the perfect place to grab a #foodselfie of your dog just like @popeyethefoodie does!

Located less than ten miles from us, Carlsbad Premium Outlets is a dog friendly shopping center with tons of great shopping options for you from Tommy Hilfiger to Tory Burch, Crocs, and Disney. Your dog will enjoy getting lunch with you on Ruby’s or Blaze Pizza’s patio. (Expert tip – ask for grilled chicken on your pizza and share the chicken with your dog!) If you’re in the mood to really spoil your dog, stop by Starbucks for one of their famous puppuccinos.

Lastly, watch the sunset from our patio with your furry friend. Your pup will enjoy sitting on your lap and you’ll enjoy relaxing with a view of the Pacific right in front of you. Make this memory extra special with a glass of wine for you and some belly rubs for your pup.
