Property description

Belleview by the Sea is a beautiful, recently constructed (completed in June 2012) one bedroom, one bathroom 590 square foot apartment (see floor plan in photos section) located near Swami’s Beach on the border of Cardiff by the Sea and Encinitas. All furniture and appointments were purchased new, and are kept updated and super clean. This upstairs apartment is attached to our home, and has its own small east facing private balcony. The access is via a short dirt alley, the entry is private and secure, and there is a reserved parking space on a concrete driveway.
Enjoy the ocean view from the comfortable living room and the spacious kitchen. Walk to the beach or to downtown Encinitas and enjoy the family-owned restaurants and charming boutiques. The scenic Highway 101 is just a few minutes west where you can explore the beaches and other coastal towns. The I-5 freeway is nearby providing easy access to the sights in downtown San Diego. This upstairs apartment is quiet and private, and is an ideal retreat or home-away-from-home. ***Unfortunately, our apartment is not safe or recommended for toddlers or young children.
***Please note that a neighboring house is scheduled for remodel beginning March or April 2015. Please call if you have questions regarding this.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Mara grew up in the area and we have lived in Encinitas for 26 years. She has dual citizenship, U.S. and Italian. Mara likes to visit Italy, cook, walk on the beach, standup paddle, and is a freestyle quilter. Scott likes to surf, standup paddle, kite-board and paddle OC1 outrigger canoes. Scott has worked for a local car dealership as a wholesale manager for 29 years. We have three children in their 20's that also have dual U.S. and Italian citizenship and are all amazing musicians. Our oldest daughter holds a master's degree in violin performance. Our second daughter is a jazz vocalist, UCSD graduate and is currently living in France. Our son is a guitarist and composer and also is a UCSD graduate. The entire family surfs and enjoys the beach. We like walking or jogging and we all like cooking and eating together. All in all we have a very fun and creative family. We are thankful to the Lord for our family, our friends and for our home.

Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
We love this place! We bought the property in 1994 so that we could walk to the beach and enjoy the ocean view and sea breezes. We love to surf, walk, and ride our bikes around the area. It is a great neighborhood and has been a wonderful home for our family. We have recently finished remodeling our home to include this new one bedroom rental unit.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Belleview by the Sea has easy access to beaches, restaurants and shops. Beach gear is available upon request; (Soft surfboard, boogie board, 2 beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella.) For my quilter friends we have an iron and ironing board included and a sewing machine and other quilting items available upon request. Not only are we close to surf shops like Hansen's Surfboards, but Encinitas is the home of two of the finest yarn shops on the coast, (The Black Sheep, and Common Threads) one quilt shop (Starry Night Hollow), and a beautiful art supply store (Rhino Art). So if you want a beach vacation or a creative retreat this is the spot. We are also conveniently located in what I call the 'golden triangle' of food . Belleview by the Sea is within a half mile of Whole Foods, Cardiff Seaside Market and Super Vons for food stores and dozens of delicious restaurants. It is a foodie's delight. The apartment kitchen is fully loaded with great cooking equipment and state of the art appliances. So if you like to get creative and cook on your holiday this is your place! If you like dining out you will love exploring all the amazing restaurants. Most of all relax and enjoy yourself while you are here and experience Belleview by the Sea.
