Property description

Belleview by the Sea is a beautiful, recently constructed (completed in June 2012) one bedroom, one bathroom 590 square foot apartment (see floor plan in photos section) located within walking distance of Swami’s Beach on the border of Cardiff by the Sea and Encinitas. All furniture and appointments were purchased new, and are kept updated and super clean. Sleep comfortably with our new quiet and efficient Air Conditioning system just added to the bedroom in September 2016. Our Whole House Chloramine Filtration System provides guests with healthy water from every water source in the apartment. This upstairs apartment is attached to our home, and has its own small East facing private balcony. The access is via a short alley, the entry is private and secure, and there is a reserved parking space on a concrete driveway.
Enjoy the South-West ocean view from the comfortable living room and the spacious kitchen. Walk to the beach or to downtown Encinitas and enjoy the family-owned restaurants and charming boutiques. The scenic Highway 101 is just a few minutes west where you can explore the beaches and other coastal towns. The I-5 freeway is nearby providing easy access to the sights in downtown San Diego. This upstairs apartment is quiet and private, and is an ideal retreat or home-away-from-home. Please note that due to the upstairs location of our apartment, it is not safe or recommended for toddlers or young children.
*** Please note that our neighbors to the North are in the process of remodeling a portion of their house and yard, and there may be some minor periodic daytime noise. They are currently on schedule for completion by October 1, 2016. Our apartment windows are on the opposite side, with only the apartment door and a small bathroom window facing our neighbors to the North. As our recent guest reviews reflect, we have all 5 star reviews and all happy travelers!

"My wife and I were looking to stay in the Encinitas area without staying in another hotel. When we booked Belleview by the Sea, we were optimistic, but uncertain of what to expect. Let me just tell you, it was FAR superior to our highest expectations. I received a call from Mara to make sure we had all the information we'd need, as well as text communication leading up to our check in. She and Scott are fantastic hosts. They are friendly, accommodating, and kind. They have provided for any and every need we had while there. From beach chairs to laundry detergent, we needed nothing. The property itself is beautiful. There are water views from the living room, all the furniture is nice, the kitchen is perfectly well stocked, it was clean, bright, and airy. While it has no air conditioning, we never needed it. There are ceiling fans, and air moves quite well to keep it cool and comfortable at all times, even in August. The location is prefect. A short walk to a stunning beach, and an easy walk to down town, where there are dozens of restaurants and shops. Encinitas is a wonderful town, with plenty to see and do. If we come back to spend time in Encinitas, we will certainly book more time here. We couldn't have been any more delighted."

July 10, 2016
"My family stayed at Belleview by the Sea for 10 days and we enjoyed every minute. The property is absolutely perfect....New, Clean, Modern, and stocked with all of the essentials. If you are looking for a property in this area this is the one!"

May 19, 2016
"We have stayed here several times, and each time has been wonderful. We love the convenient location and the accommodations are perfect for us. Mara and Scott have provided everything guests could need or want. The unit is always very clean and comfortable. We hope to stay here whenever we are in the area!"

April 11, 2016
"This very well maintained apartment was as described. Excellent location with convenient walking into town. All the amenities you could need for a great stay at the beach. We will be back."

March 13, 2016
"From the time of booking to the time of check out I was nothing but impressed. Scott and Mara go through extraordinary steps to make sure the place is incredibly clean and well cared for and that our stay was incredible... After staying at literally dozens of VRBO's during my years of travel, I can say with confidence this was easily one of the best."

February 21, 2016
"This is a terrific place, we felt at home the moment we arrived and spent a wonderful two weeks enjoying the beach and the surfers, the walks (and the hills), the library and its activities and the movies and Whole Foods and .......... We will return !!!!"

November 2, 2015
"It was the best place for our vacation in Cardiff. Mara and Scott made it so comfortable. A perfect host! The apartment is so lovely and full equipped. We enjoyed it so much. Feels like home."

October 26, 2015
"Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely place! You have decorated beautifully and made it so comfortable. It has all the provisions necessary and then some. We would highly recommend you!"

September 17, 2015
"The very best place you would want to be in California. The house is lovely, very comfortable, clean, panoramic but Mara and Scott make it all special! They are the most wonderful people you would wish to meet. We will miss everything of the place and their owners. We really hate to leave and will surely come back!"

August 12, 2015
"Loved your spacious and modern property. Your personal touch and attention to detail gives it the luxury of a five-star resort with the comfort of home. Great location. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants and just a short distance away to supermarkets. It doesn't get any better!"

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Mara grew up in the area and we have lived in Encinitas for 26 years. She has dual citizenship, U.S. and Italian. Mara likes to visit Italy, cook, walk on the beach, standup paddle, and is a freestyle quilter. Scott likes to surf, kite-board and standup paddle. Scott has worked for a large local car dealership as a wholesale manager for over 30 years. We have three children in their 20's that also have dual U.S. and Italian citizenship and are all accomplished musicians. Our oldest daughter holds a master's degree in violin performance. Our second daughter is a jazz vocalist and graduated from UCSD. Our son is a guitarist and composer and also is a UCSD graduate. The entire family surfs and enjoys the beach. We like walking or jogging and we all like cooking and eating together. All in all we have a very fun and creative family. We are thankful to the Lord for our family, our friends and for our home.

Why the Owner Chose Cardiff, San Diego County, CA, USA:
We love this place! We bought the property in 1994 so that we could walk to the beach and enjoy the ocean view and sea breezes. We love to surf, walk, and ride our bikes around the area. It is a great neighborhood and has been a wonderful home for our family. We have recently finished remodeling our home to include this new one bedroom rental unit.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Belleview by the Sea has easy access to beaches, restaurants and shops. Beach gear is available upon request; (Soft surfboard, boogie board, 2 beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella.) For my quilter friends we have an iron and ironing board included and a sewing machine and other quilting items available upon request. Not only are we close to surf shops like Hansen's Surfboards, but Encinitas is the home of two of the finest yarn shops on the coast, (The Black Sheep, and Common Threads) one quilt shop (Starry Night Hollow), and a beautiful art supply store (Rhino Art). So if you want a beach vacation or a creative retreat this is the spot. We are also conveniently located in what I call the 'golden triangle' of food . Belleview by the Sea is within a half mile of Whole Foods, Cardiff Seaside Market and Super Vons for food stores and dozens of delicious restaurants. It is a foodie's delight. The apartment kitchen is fully loaded with great cooking equipment and state of the art appliances. So if you like to get creative and cook on your holiday this is your place! If you like dining out you will love exploring all the amazing restaurants. Most of all relax and enjoy yourself while you are here and experience Belleview by the Sea.
