Fantastic apartment close to ocean and San Diego activities
Fantastic apartment close to ocean and San Diego activities
If you search for a more accommodating “landlord” you won’t find one. Susan went all out to make us feel at home and to ensure that everything we needed was taken care of. We mentioned ahead of our stay that we wanted to ride bikes so she checked out the local bike rental stores. We also told her we wanted to take public transportation to the Chargers game so she found out about the trolley/trains for us; that saved us the $25 parking fee. The apartment is very spacious and open with huge picture windows with views of the ocean. At night we could even hear the waves – it was so great. The apartment was very clean and recently redecorated. Even though the furniture is pretty new we still felt we could relax. The walls are soft, soothing, updated colors. The kitchen appliances seem new too. The neighborhood is so quiet, peaceful and safe that we slept with our windows open. With the ocean views it would be easy to pay almost double what Susan is charging. Susan supplies everything you’d need at the beach such as boogie boards, beach towels, sand chairs and beach bags in which to carry everything. Only a few blocks away is a nice grassy park with tennis courts, picnic tables and playground equipment for children. We walked to the beach from the unit. There is a nice specialty market and take out restaurants also within walking distance. One other great thing about the apartment is that it has its own off-street parking. Parking in beach cities is at a premium so it is a big plus that this unit has its own designated parking spot. Only a 15 min. drive away is the Old Town transit center, with free parking, where you can take the local pubic transit system to anywhere you want to go in the San Diego area – Petco stadium where the Padres play, the Chargers’ stadium, convention center, Midway ship, Gas Lamp district, malls, etc. We took the trolly to the downtown area then took the bus over to Coronado Island in the past. In San Diego it is so easy to get around via public transportation. This is our 5th stay at a VRBO rental. We really recommend this apartment for couples. We stayed here to celebrate out 10th wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed it Just being able to relax and enjoy the view was the most perfect wedding anniversary we could have had.

Owner response: I am glad you had a wonderful anniversary down here ~ that makes me happy that you had a wonderful weekend! thank you and come back soon!
nice place for a cardiff stay
nice place for a cardiff stay
nice location 6 blocks from beach. one can walk to the beach. 6 blocks to local market. 2 miles to whole foods market, encinitas coffee houses/bakerys, and 3 miles to del mar beaches. in a quiet location. the place is clean. has simple interior decoration and is comfortable. the owner was available for questions but not "too present". nice view from balcony which is furnished with table, BBQ, and recliners. my guess is that with the railing , the balcony would not be appropriate for young children . the apt is a perfect size for a couple -- i would stay there again. hope it is available next yr. when we vrbo for a longer period of time.

Wonderful ocean view from house and large deck.
Wonderful ocean view from house and large deck.
I grew up in Solana Beach back in the 50's when North County was the boondocks. My wife and I have been coming back to the area every summer for a month or so for the last 40+ years and have stayed in many places so we know the scoop on the area.. This place has many pluses. The best view for the money we've seen in the area. Very quiet (a big plus if you like to just chill and enjoy the view). A very pleasant and responsive owner lives above the unit and a renter in the adjoining side unit. Both are quiet as mice. Super BBQ and monster size deck. The living room/kitchen area is spacious and lets in plenty of light . The house is high enough on the hill in that it always gets that wonderful sea breeze. The accommodations aren't fancy but, have just the right ambiance for someone who wants to have a real Southern California beach community experience. We usually come for a working vacation so the super fast wireless internet and 6 bar cell phone coverage (with both ATT and Verizon) are a big plus since good cell phone coverage and Internet aren't always that great in Cardiff.

About the owner: I am a professional landlord on the premises and I have a license from the city of San Diego to operate a vacation rental & apts. I graduated college with a degree in Travel/Tourism giving me a wonderful backround to assist visiting guests. For true relaxtion a vacation rental should look different from your own envrionment. I love big band partner swing dancing, enjoy the beach, reading, cruising in my vintage convertible, and walking around my unique neighborhood ~ no track housing here! I enjoy 'yard art' as I am the gardener! I also enjoy yoga, pilates and a healthy lifestyle & positive outlook on life!
Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
Originally this apt. was a regular rental but with the stunning view and serene environment and quiet neighborhood ~ I wanted to try it as a vacation rental so other people can enjoy it. I have owned the building for many years. Located West of the freeway and close to the beach, bus stop, Coaster & AMtrak train stations & centrally located.
