About the property

Welcome to Paradise! Indulge yourself by waking up to a breathtaking ocean view and watching the spectacular sunsets from your private deck. Fall in love with Cardiff by the Sea. A romantic surfing village with wonderful, unique beaches and incredible weather. There are abundant beachfront dining opportunities on restaurant row and quaint coffee houses for reading and relaxing. Enjoy a wine bar, Seaside Market and numerous boutiques, shops and local eateries just a few short blocks away. Grab your beach gear and walk to Cardiff State Beach for surfing, swimming or just a relaxing stroll. On your way to the beach, you'll walk through beautiful Glen Park. The park has plenty of grass, shade and picnic tables plus a playground, tennis court and basketball court. If you want to see the rest of beautiful Southern California, there are tourist attractions too numerous to mention from Disneyland (1 1/2 hours north) to the famous San Diego Zoo and Sea World (30 minutes south). If you don't want to drive, take the Coastal train to downtown San Diego or north to Los Angeles. We're sure you'll enjoy Cardiff, the rest of the San Diego area and the best weather in the world!

This newly remodeled single story bungalow, complete with beach decor is located west of I-5 and just up the hill from the coastal highway. Walk though the front door and immediately appreciate the ocean view! The open floor plan allows the main living areas to blend together comfortably, providing expansive ocean views throughout the home. The front room contains a fireplace, seating accommodations and a futon that makes into a double bed. The bedroom has a king bed, chest of drawers and nightstands with unique surfing decor. A mirrored double sliding door closet allows for plenty of room to empty those suitcases. All linens and towels are included in the rental fee. Enjoy breakfast with a view of the ocean in the brightly decorated, completely furnished kitchen with table that seats four. Continue through the house to the great room with the GREAT VIEW! This room has a 39' flat screen TV with DVD and VCR plus high speed internet connection. There is a queen sized Murphy Bed, a sectional sofa that converts to a double bed and two lounge chairs that convert to single beds. In addition to the eating area in the kitchen, the great room has a large dining table that seats eight. Step out onto the covered deck and experience PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEWS! Below the deck is a secluded back yard with tropical landscaping. There is also an outdoor patio with a charcoal barbecue. The single car garage has beach gear (surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs) for you to use. There is one off street parking spot with additional parking on the street.

Why Barbara Wilson chose Cardiff

We lived in this house until moving to Arizona. The house has been a rental ever since but we decided to make it a vacation rental so we can use it more often! We love staying in Cardiff and still have lots of friends and family in the area.

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! My husband and I traveled from NJ to spend Christmas with our CA son, daughter and their friends at this property. The bed was comfortable for my husband and I, and the Murphy bed worked well for our 6'5" son in the living room. Our daughter lives near by, so it was conveniently located. It was like being home for Christmas.The view is great on the porch/deck. Everything that we needed for a full Xmas dinner was there, and the dining table was comfortable for all. It was too cold to use the wonderful outdoor patio dining set, however we plan on returning - perhaps in the summer when we can enjoy the view and outdoors better.

Perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned for a wonderful stay at this property. I'm so appreciative when the place actually matches the photos. The ambiance was so much better than I expected. Home was immaculate and perfectly stocked. View of the ocean was exactly as the photo had reflected and the communications with the owner was spot on. Great location to walk to beach and just a short ride to restaurants, farmer markets, etc. I will most definitely return to this property as well as highly recommend it to anyone who wants a beachy San Diego experience.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 4 nights and wished it could have been longer! The house itself is super cozy and peaceful. The view is wonderful and you can hear the ocean, and feel it's breeze when you open up the windows. It is a short walk to the beach, market and restaurants in the area and the neighborhood feels calm and safe. Barb is great and the whole experience was easy fulfilling! We will definitely come back here.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month in this cozy home & loved every moment! The home is situated so the back of the house has an expansive view looking out at the ocean! You can hear the surf from here! The property is just under a mile's walk from the beach. Everything I needed for my stay was provided. Easy access to freeway. Nice neighborhood. I will be going back!

Chantilly, France

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Coming from France, we stayed at this property for a week visiting family in the area, for us the price was very reasonable; thanks for that, Barb! The neighborhood is really quiet, just the occasional horn from the Amtrak Coaster trains, but even that has its charm. The house itself and all the towels, linens, etc are super clean and everything is supplied that you could need. The water pressure in the shower is awesome and the view of the ocean here is much better in person; wonderful to wake up to each morning which lends to very, very relaxing environment. If you're a coffee person, the deck will be calling your name. My only regret is that I didn't book the house for two weeks. We'll definitely be back next year!
