Wonderful, spacious home with great views

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this lovely home in Cardiff. It is wonderful and perfect for families. We stayed there with two little kids and had a lot of space. We could easily leave the doors open for them to play outside in the fenced yard. The garage was a nice surprise because it had extra couches and table/chairs there to watch the sunset.

Great, large couch so that everyone had a seat. Well stocked kitchen. Great beds with extra bedding! TV with cable and a DVD library.

Easy to walk to Seaside Market, Pipes Beach for breakfast or lunch, a pizza place...5 min drive to the beach. Easy access to the highway.

Host was super friendly and easy to get in touch with. Can't wait to go back!

family w/ 4 little ones

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six who relocated to CA from the northeast for work. This house was such a lovely introduction to the super family-friendly area of Cardiff. Incredibly comfortable, well-maintained and spacious. The location is ideal for taking advantage of the amenities in the area while also providing a reasonable daily commute to San Diego should you be relocating for work. There is a terrific walkable park if you have young ones and are in need of more outdoor space. And, in addition to walkable Cardiff State Beach, Moonlight Beach- which has a wonderful playground- is just a couple miles up 101. The single-story layout, sizable bedrooms, and inviting living space (and double washer and double dryer!!!) will make you wish this was your forever home.

The owner is delightful; quick to answer questions regarding the home and our stay and was willing to help us navigate our new town.

Whether short-term or long-term, you will be hard-pressed to find a better rental in the area.
