Cardiff by the Sea condo description

This is an extremely private, elegant, immaculate, beautifully and eclectically decorated, 1800 sq ft. penthouse with one of the best ocean views you can imagine. White carpets, comfortable bed and everything you need for a wonderful, relaxing, upscale visit or business trip to one of the greatest spots on the San Diego coastline.

Relax on the veranda with a glass of wine at sunset....but know that the sunset is just as visible from the living room, dining room, office and more importantly the giant, cozy king bed in the master bedroom. The condo has lots of huge windows and 15' ceilings throughout for a bright, airy atmosphere.

Wake up to this amazing view, have coffee/tea on the veranda or walk 1 block over to Starbucks for your favorite morning drink or to Pipes Cafe for breakfast!

Take a walk on the beach, a jog along the coast or an uphill walk through the beautiful neighborhoods above us. There is also a great gym and a lovely yoga studio a block away for those who like to keep in shape.

You can also sun yourself on the upper veranda off the Master Bedroom. It's very private for those who oppose tan lines!

The master bedroom/bath suite is quite spacious (450 sq ft), with a sliding glass door leading out to the upper veranda. The bathroom is lovely with a large, bubble ready tub, double sinks, separate shower and privacy room for the toilet area.

The office has a large wrap around desk with lots of room to spread out for those (like me) who need to bring work with them where ever they go. Wired and wireless hi-speed internet are both available (wireless is available though-out the condo).

I love to cook so the kitchen is fully loaded with everthing needed in cookware, glasses, dishes, utensils, small appliances, gadgets, barware, spices, etc.
