About Kara Watkins Norgart

My name is Kara Watkins Norgart and we are raising our three young boys here in Cardiff By The Sea, CA. We are always at the beach playing in the sand or in the waves. I am from Northern CA (Santa Cruz) but I have lived in San Diego 15 years now. Cardiff By The Sea is a wonderful laid back surf town with epic world class waves. There are a ton of great places to dine and visit while in Cardiff/Encinitas and I am happy to give you all my favorites. If you like live music, hit the Belly Up, one of my favorite local venues. I am a local realtor specializing in beach communities along the Coast of San Diego and I am SO proud to call Cardiff "home".

We had amazing stay--home was clean and amenities were great. Incredible location--exactly as advertised. Beach, shops and restaurants walkable -- we went to the beach every day. We are familiar with the area, come frequently to town to visit family and have stayed in homes in Del Mar and Cardiff. This was our favorite! Kara was welcoming and responded quickly to the few questions we had. We hope to stay again!

Beautiful home with an amazing ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We walked to the beach, rode bikes into Encinitas, which is a short but fun ride, experienced very cute bars and restaurants! Overall we were so happy with the accommodations and the great location of their home! Kara was very helpful in recommendations and was always there by text if we had to ask a question. We would definitely go back again!

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice well maintained home. Great views from the living/dining/kitchen area as well as the upstairs master bed. Breathtaking sunset views from the front patio/yard specially comfortable with the fire pit going as it gets a little nippy when the sun goes down. Walking distance to restaurants and the Seaside market. With our binoculars we could easily monitor our boys surfing from the front patio when we were not with them in the water. The owners Kara and Scott were very easy to work with and made us feel at home in their home.
