Cardiff by the Sea townhome description

Cardiff is a beautiful and intimate community between La Jolla and Carlsbad. Relax and Reconnect with yourself and family in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, one of the last little Californian beach towns, away from the tourist areas, but close to entertainment and world-class surfing. A great get away for reunions with friends and family, or rejuvenate with nature.

Centrally located within walking distance of everything. You don't have to drudge up the hill to get around. A few steps to shops and a few blocks from the beach. Enjoy white water views and breath-taking sunsets from the sun deck clear to La Jolla. Interior design includes beautiful hardwood floors, local art, soaring ceilings and skylight throughout. Amenities include premium cable television, audio and WiFi in each room.

A printer is available for those who just can't tear themselves away from work. The unit is a short walk to the beach with easy access to prime surfing areas and tide pools. Explore one of San Diego’s last estuaries, the San Elijo Lagoon, just down the street. The Lagoon has more than 7 miles of trails and is an excellent way of getting to know the wildlife of the area. Del Mar Race Track and Fairgrounds, World-Class golfing courses within minutes drive. Close to amusement parks and attractions.

Surfboard, bike and boogie board rental available nearby. Walk to Star Bucks, gourmet market, shops and excellent beach front restaurants without the inconvenience of dredging up-hill.

                  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.
