Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Growing up in Los Angeles, at 10 years old my mom and dad took our family camping at the ocean front San Elijo campground in Cardiff by the Sea, California- We came back every year . I went through San Diego State University and planned a dream- which is why I now offer that dream of a vacation at this cottage. Our family lives across the lagoon from this property We consider this area to be one of the best places in the world. My wife and have kids, dogs,cats,horses, and a pig.

Why the Owner Chose Cardiff, San Diego County, CA, USA:
We aqquired the cottage from a family who owned it for 30 years and wanted to sell it to someone that would appreciate the home's unique style and history. Originally it was a farm in the early 1900's when this entire region was all rural. (This area was once known as the flower-growing capital of the world.) As Cardiff became more populated, the barn and land was sold, and this became a family home. Then, in the late 1970's to the early 1980's, a bunch of surfers and college students resided here, and this place was known all though the North County area as 'The Animal House'. To this day, we run into people who have had a past history (and some very colorful stories), of partying at this house! We love the cozy town of Cardiff, and we love the sunny location of this house at the top of a hill. This community is very unique-It's a beach town where the first topic of the day is 'How's the Surf?' Someday, we might make this our own home, but for now, we want to give you the joy of experiencing it's pleasures!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
An authentic 3 bed 2 ba. beach cottage, stone pathway to the front door, colorful plants. There is an unobstructed view of the ocean from the front yard that we just love! The house is light, airy, and sunny.
