Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: I am a professional landlord on the premises and I have a license from the city of San Diego to operate a vacation rental & apts. I graduated college with a degree in Travel/Tourism giving me a wonderful backround to assist visiting guests. For true relaxtion a vacation rental should look different from your own envrionment. I love big band partner swing dancing, enjoy the beach, reading, cruising in my vintage convertible, and walking around my unique neighborhood ~ no track housing here! I enjoy 'yard art' as I am the gardener! I also practice gentle yoga, pilates and a healthy lifestyle & positive outlook on life!

Why the Owner Chose Cardiff, San Diego County, CA, USA:
Originally this apt. was a regular rental but with the stunning ocean view, giant deck, and serene environment and quiet neighborhood I thought a different type of rental would be a great fit! For the last 2 years it was a corporate rental and I liked that arrangement. Its very reasonably priced beach apt. which would appeal to anyone with a budget as I prefer that it be rented and not empty. I have owned the building for 36 years. Perfect Del Mar Race Track rental ~ Located West of the freeway and close to the beach, bus stop, Coaster & AMtrak train stations & centrally located with starbucks, Seaside specialty market, & restaurants in the Cardiff Town Center. Ideal for surfers with a quiet lifestyle ~ lock up storage area for surf boards ~ see surfers take off on haves with the surf is up! Parents visiting family, and Yogi's!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This is the American Riviera ~ lovely simple sunny unit close to the beach but not near any traffic. Cardiff village with charming restaurants, market & starbucks is near by. Ride the waves or watch the surfers ride waves when the surf is up; located near major surf spots (storage to store your surfboard). Or just lounging & reading, watching the sea, sky & tropical foliage change throughout the day. Practice yoga (mats included in the unit), Pilates, meditation, sleep. Close to the Del Mar racetrack without the traffic! Super giant over-sized deck ~ barbeque ~ patio furniture. Walk the neighborhood to the lagoon. A Nice glass of wine at Sunset or enjoy the a.m. with coffee & newspaper ~ great start of the day! With the deck attached to the unit step right out directly to the deck! Chill vacation rental! Must be booked 31 days at a time due to City Code rules .
