                        Cardiff by the Sea is a great place to have a family vacation. This home is close to everything. The owner was flexible with arrival dates which we really appreciated and was great with communication.The roof deck is stunning however the stairs can be a challenge to navigate they are spiral & narrow for some this could pose an issue- we did not have a problem. We had everything we needed and more. The beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys all came in handy. The pictures and description are a true representation of the property.

                        1) We arrived and when we walked in there was a smell of strong air fresheners and a big spot on the small bedrooms's carpet. We contacted Carey he said they tried to get it cleaned. The smell was so strong, we called a carpet cleaner and he cleaned it for us. We got the smell to disappear. In a documented e-mail we asked what the smell was and Carey replied perfume. 2) The ice maker did not work the whole month we were there. In a documented e-mail the reply was to buy ice. 3) The tiny grill propane tank was empty and the grill was dirty and aged and the top broken with no utensils for cleaning. We filled the propane tank for 10 dollars. Documented e-mail where Carey told us to fill it. 4) The advertised printer had no ink we went to the local store to print. 5) The vacuum did not work and with sand on floors and carpets we needed a way to clean because we were there for a month. Documented e-mail no response from Carey. We had to hire someone to clean twice. There was no reimbursement for this. 6) Sliding glass door difficult to open, screen off track. Documented e-mail from Carey to hire a handyman to fix it. 7) The kitchen was cleaned on the surface but the insides of cupboards were dirty, we cleaned. The shelf with spices was very dirty had spilled spices and different liquids on the shelf. We cleaned and threw away spices some dated 2009. Documented e-mail. 8) Windows and window sills very dirty. Documented e-mail 9) Lastly the kitchen sink's grout has cracked and fallen causing the sink to drop and leak. We were charged for the plumber's call and plumber removed the britta water filter because it was leaking and fall apart. We were charged extra for the plumber's call. We have often rent using VRBO and never have complained. Carey did agree to pay the carpet cleaners, however he charged $50 dollars for cleaning the tiny grill and $40 dollars for the plumber's service charge.

                        We had 3 sets of families stay here and we all loved it. I appreciated that the minimum stay was not 7 days so it was a treat to stay here for a weekend. The condo is as described and walking distance to many restaurants. The beach was great for the kids and adults. I think this is our new fave little getaway spot. def will be back. Thanks Carey!

                        This was a great find. The pictures and listing description are accurate. The view from the roof deck is awesome, and the place is really just a couple of blocks from the beach. Also a great spot for easy access to great restuarants, LegoLand, Sea World, La Jolla, and San Diego. The place is well kept and the bikes and boogie boards in the garage were a nice bonus. Some of the kitchen items could use a refresh, but there was enough to cook with. The owner is super helpful and very interested in helping you with anything you may need. Highly recommended!

                        This was a wonderful place to stay. The view from inside and the deck and really great. Getting to places to eat and grocery stores was so easy and many were within a short walking distance. Nice quiet neighborhood. The townhouse was well stocked with essentials to start you off and with kitchen appliances. Well suited for seniors or a family with plenty of space and sleeping areas.

                        What a great place to enjoy a family vacation. The accommodations were spacious and we had everything we could think of. The location was perfect...situated between Disneyland and San Diego. Great little community. Loved the quaint stores and convenience to the beach.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                        Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful accommodations. It really helped to make our trip even more memorable. The location was fantastic and we loved the view from the deck. You were not kidding when you said all we needed to bring were our swim suits and smiles!

                        From the beginning to the end, a great experience. Easy to work with property owner. Very helpful and accommodating. Property in great location. Clean and roomy. Great view from rooftop deck. Short walk to beach and restaurants. I suggest Zenbu for sushi. Market is 5 minute walk. 10 minute drive to Carlsbad. Great place to rent a beach cruiser and ride. Listing photos are accurate of the property. Listing description was accurate. We would highly recommend this property and would also stay here again. Our group was two families of four. Kids between 17 and 10.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, sightseeing, adventure seekers, tourists without a car.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Most residents in Cardiff-by-the-sea can't believe their luck living here. Some feel that there is a spiritual quality to Cardiff. Some cite the number of spas, yoga and meditation institutions in the area. Others talk of returning and feeling stress completely leave. Most agree that after a week you'll find yourself wondering why you have to go back. You're never far from good music, food, or a relaxing ocean breeze.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
                      Locals regularly congratulate each other for being lucky enough to live here. This doesn't just take place, as one might expect, during the Winter months, but surprisingly during the Summer as well! This house has a great view, is spacious and is a convenient walk to everything

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      As I child I remember going to the beach, it was always a hassle. It took hours getting there, everywhere was crowded, finding parking was expensive (if you could find it at all) and just about the time that you started enjoying yourself, it was time to go. I hated the hassle. The experience made me beach phobic. Cardiff-by-the-Sea is a completely different experience. It's relaxing, family-friendly, the perfect little southern California beach town. There is always ample parking and the weather's perfect year around. It only gets better when you walk around the area. Everything's within walking distance.
