About Nora Middleton

I am a native San Diegan and grew up right here in Cardiff by the Sea. I am a photographer and an intuitive masseuse and able to offer these resources to you. I am a relaxed person and I love meeting new people. I live in the upstairs unit and am available for assistance.

Nora Middleton purchased this Condo in 1986

Why Nora Middleton chose Cardiff

The moment I saw this property I knew it was special. Cardiff is one of the nicest beach towns in the whole North San Diego region. This house is elevated on the hillside and offers dramatic coastline views. My home is in the walking district of Cardiff with lots of great restaurants, shopping and a fantastic gourmet grocery store nearby. The ocean is 4 short blocks away!

What makes this Condo unique

Recently underwent a remodel. This is a very clean and contemporary space. Guests rave how peaceful and healing the energy is within my home, I strive to keep this balance.

                                                            Nora’s place is situated in a pleasant neighborhood right where Cardiff begins to rise in altitude, nestled into the hill, so it has a great view of the coast without being too close to the beach. The best coffee in the area is less than 2 blocks away - Zumbar - and she’s provided a couple a great beach cruisers for riding further distances.

                                                            It is tastefully furnished, stocked with quality soaps and shampoo, and has all the basics for cooking and drinks service.

                                                            Nora is exceptionally friendly and helpful without being at all invasive.

                                                            If you are visiting for San Diego attractions, I highly recommend staying in North County: the beach access is awesome, there are a lot of great restaurants, and it’s got a pleasant buzz without being too hectic. This place is a North County gem.
