About Susan Schein

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!

Susan Schein purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Susan Schein chose San Diego County

No Sales tax charged to the guests ~ stunning ocean view, giant deck, and serene environment and quiet neighborhood. I 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 people with a quiet lifestyle ~ see surfers take off on haves with the surf is up! Parents visiting family, and Yogi's!

What makes this apartment unique

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 beach, Self Realization Fellowship, the Del Mar racetrack... 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!

Great view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Cardiff and this VRBO worked out great for us. The view is wonderful to see the sunsets over the ocean. The apartment is nice. Susan has tried to have everything that you might need while visiting. Everything was very clean. When we go back to Cardiff, we will use this VRBO whenever it is available.

Very comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Had a fabulous time in SoCal based out of Susan's very well appointed place. Big private deck with soul satisfying view of the ocean and comfy loungers and patio set. Nicely retro Hawaiian theme and rattan makes it feel homey and laid back. Lots of room. Very clean. Close enough to everything you want but far from bustle and noise. Susan is a welcoming host who knows how to take care of people and has gone out of her way to provide whatever she thinks guests might need, including beach towels and bicycles. We'll happily go back whenever we are in the area.

Comfort in Cardiff by the Sea

  • 4 of 5

Although the decor is quite dated the apartment was spotlessly clean, had a great shower and very comfortable bed. Location is great, a short walk to Cardiff Seaside Market and the beach. Susan was a wonderful hostess, very friendly and nothing was a bother. A bonus having the off street park also. Thanks Susan, we really enjoyed our stay

Great location, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental and I've tried several in the area.

I have to admit when I saw the inexpensive rate, I didn't expect much but I was very pleasantly surprised!

The location is the best! Close to beach, shopping (Seaside market is awesome), big patio with ocean view and very comfortable home!!

Quiet and relaxing. Home has whatever you'd need (linens, towels, kitchen, even bikes and boogie boards for the beach!)

Susan is gracious and was very thorough in showing us everything we needed to know to make the most of our stay.

I would definitely stay here again!

Loved it...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 13 yr old daughter loved this apt. It has a big deck with an excellent view of the ocean, and easy to use gas BBQ also on the deck. I used to live in Cardiff years ago and love the location, you can be anywhere in San Diego in minutes. We will be back, thank you Susan your the best... Craig, Martina and Ellie
