              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We invite you to stay in our home and enjoy our carefree, easy Cardiff lifestyle that includes our daily walks or evening strolls along the beach and walking to Seaside market to choose the fresh fish of day or their famous marinated Tri tip whether we are cooking a romantic meal or entertaining friends or family. We enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle that also includes long bike rides along the coast to our favorite lunch spot, a vigorous hike/walk or simply relaxing on the deck to enjoy a fabulous sunset. We love spotting dolphins and enjoy the occasional glimpse of the spouts of migrating whales. When work or lifestyle take us away from our Cardiff home we invite you to share the Cardiff experience.

              Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
              After many years in San Diego, Rob and Marla found Cardiff to be the unique 'coastal jewel' of San Diego since it is the only area that combines a short walk to the beach with a Panoramic ocean view. Marla laughs at Rob's nightly attempt to catch a 'green flash 'at sunset and Rob loves the fact Marla loves to create beauty and warmth in the home for entertainment.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Cardiff's unique location allows you to walk to over seventeen restaurants and bars within seven blocks or drive three miles to the Del Mar Racetrack, Torrey Pines Golf and hiking trails. If you go slightly further, you quickly reach Legoland, Carlsbad outlet mall, Seaworld, the San Diego Zoo or Wild Animal Park. Disneyland is a mere 70 miles away by train or car. You can also easily jump on the nearby Coaster train to spend an evening in the San Diego Gaslamp District, dining, theatre, dancing or catch a Padre baseball game at Petco Park.
