              Legoland (10 minues away), Sea World (20 minutes away) the San Diego Zoo (25 minutes away) and Wild Animal Park are awesome attractions enjoyed by children and adults. We hold annual memberships to Sea World and Zoo/Wild Animal Park because we enjoy them so much! We are also 5-10 Minutes from Del Mar Horse Track, fairgrounds and Torrey Pines Golf Course. There are several golf courses within 15 minutes from our home. Stephen Birch Aquarium is great. La Jolla, Downtown San Diego and historic Gaslamp district are also popular. Balboa Park, museums! Hiking trails on the coast at Torrey pines. There are so many activities and attractions to choose from, picking is the most difficult part. Also, Disneyland/California Adventure Park and Knotts Berry Farm are only a 1.5 hour drive North.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are down to earth, fortunate, San Diego natives who love the laid back lifestyle and the hip new vibe in Cardiff by-the-Sea. We are proud to have a home here. We love to get away to the mountains in winter and enjoy an active lifestyle of sports and travel. Family, good friends, and good health are our highest priorities.

              Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
              Our dream was always to own a home by the beach – to enjoy those stunning sunsets, wild surf, runs at low tide, and the hot sand between your toes….I was fortunate enough to make that a reality in 2006. The views are stunning and are never the same- i never get tired of seeing the dolphins cruise by or hearing the surfers each morning!
