And just a short drive away, you can hike the bluffs overlooking the ocean at nearby Torrey Pines Reserve, catch the thrill of the world-renowned Del Mar Racetracks, snorkel in the gorgeous La Jolla Cove, or take in a Padres game after a long day at the beach.

Excellent Accommodations, Fun, Relaxing and a Great Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned home from a ten day stay. We have been to the area many times before. This is the best place that we have stayed for many reasons. The bungalow was very comfortable, clean and well organized with a good amount of space for my wife and I as well as my 17 year old daughter and 11 year old son. The bungalow is close to several great beaches, good places to eat and a nice grocery store. We have several places that we like to visit in the area and the bungalow is close to many of our favorites. It is especially convenient to Cardiff and the strip and beaches of Encinitas. We enjoyed either walking or riding the bikes available to guests of the bungalow. Impressively, there are several bikes in a wide range of sizes to use. If you have not been to the area before, there are a lot of good places to eat in Encinitas and Cardiff. There are also many places to shop, get coffee and walk around. If you want to cook there is good kitchen equipment and a choice of a few different pleasant places to to eat inside and outside. Keith was a great (the best) host. He was prompt, clear, informative, supportive but not excessive or intrusive. We would have loved to stay longer and are already looking forward to returning.

Cozy Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We stayed six nights in this wonderful bungalow. The hosts were easy to communicate and very friendly; arrival and check out were simple. The bungalow itself is very clean and comes with everything anyone would need during a stay. The location is perfect as restaurants, a market and the beach are within walking distance. The hosts also provide a very handy guide binder with answers to any questions you may have as well as recommendations for activities and food. If I'm ever coming back to San Diego, this is where I'll stay!

Cardiff bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was made special by the gracious hospitality of our hosts Keith and Stacy.

Keith met us after we arrived tired from a long drive and explained everything personally.

He also left a book with very detailed information and instructions.

A more thorough briefing we never had before . Everything we needed and more was provided .

The proximity of fabulous shopping, restaurants...all in walking distance was amazing.

No car needed during our entire stay. The beach is a n easy 15 minute walk away.

Lush tropical plants surrounding the property. King size bed was super comfy!

We will tell our friends about this special place and hope to return ourselves.
