About the owner: Cardiff-by-the-Sea literally is our favorite place in the world. Apart from the beautiful views everywhere you look, the dining, attractions, and activities everywhere, the people here are what makes the town really unique and special. 'No worries' is the favorite saying here, and people mean it. Enjoy your vacation, and take the time to say hello and get to know some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! That is, we hope you experience the Cardiff that we know and love!!!!
Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea: The views and location are what makes the house and attached unit so wonderful. Hours literally can go by like minutes watching the waves, the parasailers and surfers, the hot air balloons, and the ever changing tides and wildlife of the San Elijo Lagoon -- all from your deck chair. And then, it's just a half block stroll to the trails of the Lagoon, or quick 5 minute walk to the beach and downtown district. Paradise at your doorstep!
