                                                          JoAnn B.

                                                          Would definitely recommend this Cardiff By The Sea home. Nicely equipped so very easy to enjoy your time there. It's easy to enjoy the nicely remodeled interior or the relaxing social space outside. We wish we were there in a little warmer weather in order to capitalize on the outside bar, BBQ and great patio. It was a bit further from the beach than we had anticipated, but it was still easy to get to. For warmer weather , there is everything you need for the beach for your use. Rent it; enjoy it!


                                                          Fred D.

                                                          George was very attentive to details and all that we needed during our stay. Great space with an amazing outdoor area that my kids greatly enjoyed. The quiet neighborhood was perfect for our family. We even met neighbors who were super friendly and inviting. Excellent stay for my family. Highly recommend this location for a family vacation.

                                                          Perfect spot close to beach, racetrack

                                                          House was perfect, thanks George. Outdoor patio and backyard were great to have and the house had everything we needed. Would definitely come back again.

                                                          ~5-10 minute drive to DelMar Racetrack.

                                                          We spent one week at Cardiff by the Sea in this beautiful home. It was perfect for my husband, mom and two poodles. The area was nice and quiet, wonderful back yard for the "girls" to explore and enjoy watching the sun set over the ocean with a glass of wine. The accommodations were wonderful. George was very easy to contact and quick to respond. We will return and stay at this beautiful home again!

                                                          We loved staying at this property!

                                                          Kim J.

                                                          Excellent location! Very comfortable home that is impeccably maintained. Outdoor living space is wonderful! We will definitely be back!

                                                          Great location, clean, and comfy!

                                                          George was very responsive with all of my questions from the very beginning. The house is in a very convenient location, close to the beach, about a mile away. The house was clean with all sorts of extra things to make your stay comfortable and convenient. The back yard and deck were really nice helped us enjoy the beautiful weather.

                                                          I would definitely recommend this house and would stay again!
