Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hey there. I can't live without music, surfing, yoga, traveling, and sushi. I've traveled quite a bit, and still have so much more to see. Costa Rica and Indonesia have been my two favorite destinations so far. Amazing people and lifestyle! I enjoy being an accommodating host, making myself available to guests for any questions/advice/recommendations on what to do in San Diego. I've lived in North County San Diego for a long time and know the area very well. Connecting with new people is one of my favorite things and something I recommend to everyone who comes. Looking forward to having you stay here!

Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
Being a native to Encinitas/Cardiff, I grew up surfing, skateboarding, and taking hikes around the open bluffs of the area. For some reason, I always had a fascination with Cornish Drive... Perhaps it was the 1/4 mile row of tall skinny palm trees that overlook the ocean. Years later, when I first visited the Hawaiian island Kauai, I realized that Cardiff-by-the-Sea has the same secluded, untamed magic. After I left college at USC I got into real estate and stumbled upon this house by accident. A mistake had been made in the way it was listed online and it took very specific search terms to even find the property. Being the last house before you come to the 10 acres of open orchards and undeveloped land, and at the top of a private driveway, I knew I had found a very very special property. I was en-route to India to do some volunteer work, in fact, when I got word that my offer had been accepted. When I purchased the house was very rustic and in need of updating, and it was my joy (and a fair amount to work) to transform it into the modern sanctuary that it is today.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Speaking for myself, I love the little things about both the area and the house. There is a couch/lounge underneath a trellis on the property bordering the orchard where I love to sit and watch the sunset or see the waves roll into Swami's. At night, I appreciate the convenience of walking down to the 101 (Pacific Coast Highway) to meet friends for drinks at any one of the quaint bars, restaurants, cafe's, etc., without needing to drive home. When I'm looking to kick things up a notch, though, the bars, restaurants, and clubs of downtown San Diego are only 20 minutes away.
