About the property

Modern 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath Right on Glen Park and 2 Blocks from Cardiff Beach

This is a beautiful 2,000 sq ft. home that sits directly across the street from Cardiff Glen Park, and with no houses between you and the beach, it is a short two-block walk to the water. The house just completed a full remodel (Aug 2014) and is luxurious and beach casual all at once, perfect for families with or without kids.

Hardwood floors throughout, the house is two stories (with a 3rd floor roof top deck) and has first floor ocean views and expansive white water views from the master bedroom upstairs and roof top deck. The first floor includes an open kitchen, half bath and combination great room and dining area. The large kitchen with open bar seating has all new appliances, natural quartzite countertops, a farmhouse sink and all of the amenities needed to cook gourmet meals. The great room has 14ft ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling cement-clad gas fireplace and large sliding doors that open to an outside deck and seating area with park and water views. Also on the first floor is a 2-car garage stocked with all the toys you need for the beach (boogie boards, toys, towels, chairs, umbrellas) and a brand new washer and dryer.

The second floor has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master suite features large windows, a deck with beautiful ocean views, a reclaimed wood king bed, seating and desk area, brick fireplace and walk-in closet. The large master bath has a dual-shower head glass enclosed shower with ocean & park views and a dual sink concrete vanity. Access to the roof top deck is from the master bedroom and is perfect for watching the sunset.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, closet and dresser and south facing windows complete with black-out shades. And the large third bedroom has two full sized beds and windows that face east and south, also with black-out shades. There is a twin-sized aero bed that is also available if needed.

The second bathroom has a beautifully tiled combination shower and bathtub, natural light from a south-facing window and a reclaimed wood vanity.

The home is ideally located, across the street from Glen Park, which is a large park with tennis and basketball courts, sand volleyball, horseshoe pit, playground and plenty of grassy areas perfect for bocce ball or wiffle ball. From the house it is a quick two block walk to the beach and several amazing surf breaks for all levels. You are also just a short walk to Cardiff Seaside Market (our favorite market in California), a variety of restaurants, shops and yoga studios.

Cardiff is a quintessential beach side town that has a laid back, casual sense of community with friendly people. You are in short driving distance to many great beach towns, additional shopping areas and activities. Also within driving distance are many kid friendly highlights such as Lego Land, San Diego Wild Animal Park, San Diego Zoo, Sea World and Disneyland (about a 1 hr drive).

We've lived here and in LA for the last 15 years so are happy to help with any vacation tips or questions you may have!

About Jennifer Scholnick

We've been spending the last 5 years in Cardiff and it is our favorite beach town in California. It's the perfect mix of small town, healthy lifestyle, outdoor fun with a great community of kind people! We travel the world and love our adventures, but there's nothing quite like the simple, happy life we have in Cardiff!

Jennifer Scholnick purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Jennifer Scholnick chose Cardiff

We knew the area well from living here on/off and looked for years before buying this home. We especially like this home because it's right on the park, a 2 block walk to the beach and 2 blocks to the stores & Seaside Market.

What makes this townhome unique

We spent 4 months remodeling our home so that is completely updated and brand new throughout. It's luxurious but comfortable and is a great space to enjoy with family and friends!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth time staying at Jenn's wonderful oasis and I can't wait to go back. The condo is in the perfect spot and we so enjoyed our stay as usual. She has everything needed to make your stay the best it can be. So wonderful that this home is available and we can all enjoyed what the homeowner has created for all who rent. So easy to book and Jenn hasn't missed a thing to make your stay like home.

Perfect for family with kids!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with all updated furnishings. Amazing neighborhood with amazing playscape practically in the backyard. Easy walk to the beach with wagon filled with all the beach supplies you need. We would highly recommend staying here.

The owners were very gracious in ordering baby gates and had them delivered while we were there.

Awesome overall experience.
