About Marla Rochelle

We invite you to stay in our home and enjoy our carefree, easy Cardiff lifestyle that includes our daily walks or evening strolls along the beach and walking to Seaside market to choose the fresh fish of day or their famous marinated Tri tip whether we are cooking a romantic meal or entertaining friends or family. We enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle that also includes long bike rides along the coast to our favorite lunch spot, a vigorous hike/walk or simply relaxing on the deck to enjoy a fabulous sunset. We love spotting dolphins and enjoy the occasional glimpse of the spouts of migrating whales.

When work or lifestyle take us away from our Cardiff home we invite you to share the Cardiff experience.

Marla Rochelle purchased this house in 2006

Why Marla Rochelle chose San Diego County

After many years in San Diego, Rob and Marla found Cardiff to be the unique 'coastal jewel' of San Diego since it is the only area that combines a short walk to the beach with a Panoramic ocean view.

Marla laughs at Rob's nightly attempt to catch a 'green flash 'at sunset and Rob loves the fact Marla loves to create beauty and warmth in the home for entertainment.

What makes this house unique

Cardiff's unique location allows you to walk to over seventeen restaurants and bars within seven blocks or drive three miles to the Del Mar

Racetrack, Torrey Pines Golf and hiking trails. If

you go slightly further, you quickly reach Legoland, Carlsbad outlet mall, Seaworld, the San

Diego Zoo or Wild Animal Park. Disneyland is a

mere 70 miles away by train or car. You can also easily jump on the nearby Coaster train to spend

an evening in the San Diego Gaslamp District,

dining, theatre, dancing or catch a Padre baseball game at Petco Park.

To explain our stay at this property, I will be using more than once the verb "very" in a positive manner. The home: very beautiful and very accommodating to the guest (The only thing we needed to buy for our stay was food. Everything was there in the house including beach towels, beach chairs, etc...). The cost: very reasonable for the size of the property and it's location to everything. The owners: very, very nice and very helpful. Will be back next summer!

Fabulous Location and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at this home. It is so comfortable, beautiful and close to every amenity. We walked to food and the market, went on runs straight from the house and walked to the beach. It was ideal. The homeowners were lovely and easy to work with. We plan on coming back next summer and cannot wait. I highly recommend this home!

Cardiff By The Sea Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It is situated very nicely in Cardiff with the beach, restaurants, shopping and everything else we wanted nearby. The house is nicely done and has an awesome deck up top where you can enjoy the cool breeze as you watch the sun go down. Some of the nice touches included beach towels, boogie boards and an umbrella. There is good internet, a garage, multiple TVs, DVD players and everything you would expect. Marla (owner) was great to work with as well.

With any luck, we will make it back next year. Thanks!
