  • Incredibley Gracious Host

    "I was in town to take care of a very delicate matter of my fathers health and made reservations literally on the plane from VA to San Diego. Darlene was an angel. Her responsiveness was incredible and before I even landed in San Diego, I had an answer and she was so accomodating to our situation. The stay was superb and despite the unusually high temps, Darlene had the fans going and the air moving before I even checked in with my Dad. He needed lots of rest, peace and quiet while we prepared him to travel to VA, and that's exactly what we encountered at the Bungalow. The kitchen was perfect and the setting was so relaxing for him - it put us all at ease as we prepared for a very major transition brining Dad back to VA with us. The home was awesome and the dogs next door were a gentle reminder of home and a wonderful add to the stay. The scent of orange and roses permeated the senses in the backyard which was wonderfully laid out. I loved the upper deck though we didn't get much time up there as Dad was confined to the first floor. Location was perfect as it was close to Scripps and the Market down the street was amazing. I would definitely stay at the Bungalow again. Thanks to the graciousness of Darlene, the visit was a bittersweet success as we had to say goodbye to CA probably for quite some time, but the memories we created at the Bungalow Cardiff bythe Sea are timeless. Thank you!"

    "Home away from home. Relaxing to sit on patio and have direct view of the ocean. Had virtually everything we needed. Sarah was great to take care of our needs. Only suggestion I could make is to move the bed away from the wall in the one bedroom so it would be easier to make and perhaps place a small table beside to accommodate a lamp or clock. Would highly recommend to anyone who is visiting San Diego."

  • Pure hospitality

    "I went for my wedding and used it as the home base for myself and my groomsmen and it couldn't have been a better spot. It was a short drive to the beach and had immediate access to I-5 so that I could easily run errands or even get groceries or coffee or food at any number of local spots. The owner is a wonderful woman who was nothing but hospitable! She even brought my groomsmen and I champagne on the morning of my wedding to celebrate (and calm my nerves). The back patio is a great spot to enjoy the morning before the beach and the home itself is especially nice if you pack quite a bit. Lots and lots of storage/closet space! It really was the perfect home away from home!"

  • Million Dollar View!!

    "We stayed at Cardiff By The Sea for 4 nights and hated to leave! From coffee on the deck to visits to the quaint "beach boy" Towns along this part of SoCal's Coast, our time couldn't have been better. Met Lee on our way out, and Jan was honest and great to work with. We WILL stay there again!!"
