About Andrea Johnston

We raised our family in Fountain Valley, Calif. When our children became surfers, we vacationed often in Cardiff, enjoying the outstanding beaches and excellent surfing conditions. Our neighborhood is known as the walking district in Cardiff. Our home is within 1/2 mile of Seaside Market, the library, many restaurants, shops, and of course the beaches. We look forward to retiring in the beautiful twin home we were able to purchase in 2008. We were renting the home out full time until a year ago, when we decided to convert it to a vacation rental. Now we are able to enjoy it ourselves with our children and grandchildren whenever it is not rented.

Andrea Johnston purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Andrea Johnston chose Cardiff

Cardiff is a wonderful, laid back beach community. We have always felt welcome, and relaxed when we arrived to vacation. Because we enjoy staying here ourselves whenever it is not rented, we furnished the home with very comfortable beds, and quality kitchen equipment. The home has wonderful ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. We love this place, and know you will too!

What makes this townhome unique

Walking distance to shopping, groceries, restaurants and beaches. We have a wonderful ocean view from the living room, kitchen and deck.

Great house, great view.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay, the view of the ocean from the entire main floor is terrific. Every evening we loved watching the sunset. The house is well equipped and has very comfortable beds. Good location, easy walk to the beach, and our grandkids loved the local park and playground. I would highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to stay in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.

The home was a perfect location to enjoy the sites along the nearby beach!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished. Loved watching the waves along the beach and the sky in both am and pm from the front deck. We had a hummingbird that perched on a branch across the street every day - What a treat! Beds were comfy. Kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy breakfast every day and the grill was used the final evening to create a delicious feast. Having filtered water from the fridge saved us from having to buy extra bottles. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this home! We hope to come back someday.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and spacious! It was a great area with a short walk to the beach and then can walk or run for miles. Easy access on and off the I5 with grocery stores within 10 minutes away. We enjoyed watching the sunset every night on the patio. I would definitely recommend this property.

Gorgeous get away in beautiful Cardiff!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, absolutely perfect for our family of four (with two teenagers). We felt right at home, the furnishings are lovely and comfortable, and there was every amenity we needed to make our week long stay completely enjoyable.

The location is wonderful for walking to the beach, the local grocery store (Seaside Market - I highly recommend!!), Starbucks, the Pipes diner for breakfast, any number of restaurants for dinner, and is a very short drive to any number of seaside towns that are fun to visit and shop at.

The weather was a lovely break for us from Phoenix, and we thoroughly enjoyed the sound of the ocean as well as the view from the balcony and the living room every day/night.

We will definitely be back as often as possible. Andrea, the property manager, was a pleasure to deal with and is super easy to reach with any questions. Thank you for proving such an amazing place! We will certainly cherish this vacation.

Cool ocean breeze

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Cardiff. It was an easy four block walk to the beach and we could even hear the ocean waves from the unit. We had an unobstructed ocean view from the top floor. Restaurants and the upscale Seaside Market were even shorter walks than the beach. The property was clean, well-maintained, and stocked with kitchen essentials. We didn't have to rely on street parking as there were two spaces for alley parking. Linens and towels were in good shape and the furniture looked relatively new. It was very easy to access I-5 from a less-traveled section Manchester Drive and Encinitas and Solana Beach were short drives. We would definitely stay at this property again.
