Property description

Are you looking for a luxurious custom home with spectacular – panoramic ocean views?

Would you like to sit at your very own kitchen table…living room… or balcony and watch:

•Amazing sunsets each evening?
•Dolphins and surfers frolicking in the surf?
•A peak of Catalina Island off in the horizon?
•Whales “spouting” off in the distance? Wow.

Would you and your family like to stay really, really, really close to the beach?

Yes- just a quick 7-minute walk- and you are there!

•500’ and 7 minute walk to Swami’s Beach
•Cardiff
•Pipes
•Moonlight Beach

Would you and your family like to vacation at an exquisitely decorated, new custom home that accommodates up to 9 people and is equipped with:

•4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths --including 2 masters with en-suites and walk in closets?
•A gourmet kitchen- with granite counter tops and top of the line appliances?
•Total privacy behind a gated entry?
•A fabulous media system with CD, DVD, great sound system, wireless Internet, large flat screen TVs in each room, Cox Cable with HBO and Showtime, all controlled by easy to use remotes?
•Laundry room with high-end appliances?
•Outdoor shower for surfers and beach goers?
•Towels, bedding, fully stocked kitchen, and just about any thing you could want! Just bring your own beach towels, food and beverages and you are good to go!

Would you and your family like to stay within walking distance of quaint and historic downtown Encinitas and Cardiff?

Just a 5-10 minute walk to:

•3 grocery stores
•2 farmers markets
•Restaurants, bars and fine dining?
•Tons of shopping
•Amtrak and the Coaster train
•And, much, much more.....

Yes, the Cardiff beach House is located a mere 5-10 minute walk from both downtown Encinitas and Cardiff where you can find just about anything you could possibly want. Or, if you choose, you can even ride our bike!

Would you like to stay in an ideal location for vacationing throughout San Diego?

Located in north coastal San Diego, the Cardiff Beach House is truly the perfect location. It’s close to Del Mar, the Del Mar Racetrack, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, UCSD, the gliderport, high-end golf courses, shopping, La Jolla, dining, Legoland, the zoo. Plus++++

If so, you will love the Cardiff Beach House!

I think when you add it all up, you will know you found the perfect spot for your next vacation. Just give us a call or contact via email/ vrbo as soon to book your vacation!

Open to both short term and long term rentals. Extra discounts apply to longer term rentals.

Note: Kitchen, living and dining area is on the 2nd floor to maximize views. There is a flight of stairs (in 2 sections) that total 18 stairs. My 81 year old disabled mother was able to use the stairs- but might be an issue for others.

Likewise, the house is not fully baby proofed. We would, however, consider adding a baby gate and protectors for electric sockets if requested.

Although the beach is only 500' as the bird flies, one has to walk ~ 6 blocks to get to Swami's beach access point. There are many beaches in the area- some of which offer easier access for elderly and those that might have a difficult time with stairs and hills. Moonlight Beach has the easiest access.

Allergies? Occasionally our cat joins us when we are staying here. THe house is very clean- and have not had any problems- but just want potential renters to know ahead of time.

Questions? Just give me a call:)
