This lovely location by the sea exemplifies everything they loved most: The beauty of the sun setting on the ocean, lovely gardens, rainbows peaking thru clouded skies, butterflies and birds dancing thru the trees, soft music, candle light dinners and lovely surrounding; and most of all the gatherings of family and loved ones for memories---picnics, barbecues, campfires, sing-a-longs, games and hand in hand walks together on the beach. Therefore it is our wish that this beloved home will keep them forever in our hearts. We hope you will love and enjoy it just as we do and experience the peace and beauty of a place we believe is as close as can be to heaven on earth. Enjoy!

Our guests have made comments in our Memory Book which include: 'Best vacation ever' 'Can hardly wait til we return' 'Your home is magnificent' 'We made wonderful memories' 'Perfect in every way' We would be pleased and honored should you, too, choose to make an entry in our book when you visit.

About June Dolan

We are retired Registered Nurses who spent much of our nursing careers in management/supervision, Intensive Care and detention health. We originally purchased beach property for our own enjoyment but realized we were not always able to be in that location so we came up with the idea that we wanted others to be able to enjoy it as well and at prices they could afford!

*Scottie O'Brien & his mom, Kelly, & brother,Shane stayed at our home on several occasions when he was receiving clinical trials in San Diego for a rare mitochondrial disease with no know cure or treatment. They brought a spirit of love, peace and giving to our Cardiff by the Sea home that will always remain there. For each rental we receive, we will donate $25 to Scottie on the web site (You might also like to read Scottie's story on this site---he is a loving, caring young man with an amazing attitude.)

June Dolan purchased this house in 2006

Why June Dolan chose Cardiff

After my parents passed---after long and devastating illnesses, I did not want to waste the small inheritance that was left from all their labors and thus invested my portion as a down payment on a small ocean view condo in a beautiful complex which set right on the sand. We so loved the awesome feeling of peace that was so prevalent at the beach that we decided others had to experience it as well. So we decided to sell it (to friends---and we now manage it for them) and purchase a larger beach home so that others could come to share that little bit of 'heaven on earth' and find joy and happiness in a place we had come to love so much! It was evening, with the sun setting on the ocean when we first walked into the master bedroom of our Cardiff by the Sea home. We were immediately drawn to the unbelievable beauty of the ocean that we could behold right before our eyes---it was love at first sight and we knew this was the home of our dreams!

What makes this house unique

Cardiff is a very lovely up-scale little village with all the quaintness of such but yet with the mesmerizing attraction of the massive Pacific Ocean (in it's many changing moods) right before our eyes. There is such a unique spirit and feeling of peace and happiness in our beach home (and it seems to radiate throughout the town as well) that draws us and many of our guests to return time and time again to rejuveniate and to discover once more all the joy and beauty of the world in which we live.

Wonderful Holiday by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you June for thinking of everything to make our stay so comfortable. The beds were great for those with bad backs. The ocean views, especially sunsets, were glorious! This was such a spacious home for the east coast parents to visit with the west coast adult kids. There was enough room for all. Convenient location to shops (Cardiff Seaside Market!) and the beach. We loved watching the surfers, and the Christmas trees on the beach were so special. Sure beats the frigid blast back home. Highly recommend these accommodations!!!

Comfortable and well equipped home ideal for family gathering. Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home was ideal for a family gathering. It was the most well equipped kitchen of any home we have rented in the past. It is advertised to be suitable for seven. We were five adults and one infant who slept in a pack and play in the master comfortably. Five adults is the max for comfort

Perfect Location and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We had 3 couples for the weekend and were attending the Breeders Cup Races at Del Mar. The racetrack was very convenient from the house via Uber. There were several options for dining that were wonderful. We didn't spend much time at the house because we left early for the races and didn't return until later after dinner. So, we didn't take advantage of the grill or cooking at the house, however, it seemed to have everything you would need. It was lovely sitting on the small balcony and enjoying coffee in the mornings. Very nice place!
