Completely renovated, well organized and beautifully decorated Cardiff Beach bungalow right near the heart of town in the walking district, no detail overlooked! Professional and extensive cleaning and linen service after every single stay, you will think its new each time you come to stay. 2 minute walk into town and only 5 minutes to the beach on foot, also includes use of beach cruisers, boogie boards, surfboards, beach chairs, beach towels & umbrella.

Please see my other listing VRBO #641606 for more reviews or if you have a large group and would like to have both bungalows for your stay. They are almost identical.

We made sure to fully outfit our vacation home with everything you’ll need to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay including Air Conditioning! Enjoy our fully equipped kitchen, upgraded bathroom, and designer furnishings. We have HD TVs in both the living room and master bedroom (high speed internet & full cable package, including HBO, Cinemax and Showtime), as well as Apple TV with hundreds of movies, and iHome clocks/speakers all throughout for your own personal enjoyment. And don’t forget to soak up the sun out on the large private patio w/ BBQ grill, the outdoor dining area with gas fire-pit, or on the upper lookout deck with incredible sunset views! To see more about the bungalow and the surrounding area, please select the video icon from the main photo page in the upper left corner.

Use of the provided yoga mats, beach cruisers, boogie boards, surfboards, beach chairs, beach towels, and umbrellas is highly encouraged! Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway for two, a family vacation by the sea, or a quiet retreat with friends, this charming setting is absolutely perfect and comes with all you need for total enjoyment and relaxation.

The bungalow is located on a quiet street, and is only a short stroll from the heart of Cardiff’s many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, yoga studio, salons, library, post office, wine bars, and local favorite — the “Seaside Market” grocery store, plus great surfing and beautiful beaches!

Just a short distance up the street, you can catch the coaster to explore downtown San Diego for a day. 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.

Sleeps up to 4 with 1 king size bed and 2 twin beds.

Fully stocked kitchen.

Fantastic Home! Super organized!

  • 5 of 5

I have never been to this area of Southern California, great little town and great restaurants and markets all within walking distance. Loved this home, it was so clean and well organized and Keith really keeps it stocked with everything you could need. I did bring my dog with me, loved that I could find a place that allowed dogs. He loved his walks on the beach and we hit a few dog parks in the area and of course Dog Beach in Del Mar is a very short drive away. Never had a problem with parking at the beach, it is walkable/bikable but with kids and dogs it was easier for me to load up the car and drive. The owner was very responsive and thought of everything you could need! I highly recommend renting this home.

This was our 2nd time staying in Keith and Stacy's bungalow in Cardiff by the Sea and it was fantastic! The bungalow is stocked with everything you need to make it feel like home! It's walking distance to Starbucks grocery and the beautiful beach! Thank you Keith & Stacy! We look forward to staying at your bungalow in the near future.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Keith's place early December 2016 and had a wonderful time. The photos and the description are spot on - the house is beautiful and everything is extremely well thought out. The house has everything you think you need and then some - I have never stayed at a vacation rental that has had absolutely everything we needed and so well organized that it was easy to find as well! The local info provided in the house is really useful and the recommendations were excellent. We enjoyed several restaurants we would have missed with regular tourist guides. Finally, communications, payment etc. were quick and seamless. Any question we had was answered quickly and Keith was so helpful throughout our stay and went above and beyond (e.g. making sure the smaller bike was available for our daughter, providing bike helmets etc.). Add all this to an unbeatable location - walking distance to the beach, restaurants etc. and a short drive to the zoo and reasonable drive to Disneyland. It's been almost a year since our stay and I truly hope we can visit again.

Absolutely Amazing

Very clean and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Great little beach town, home was lovely, very comfortable with the exception of the couch, I did not think that was very comfortable. Kitchen was awesome, able to cook most of our meals very well equipped. Beds were amazing, very comfortable. Loved the roof top porch, spent a lot of time outside, first time renting VRBO and I do not think I will ever go back to hotels. Terrific Host, gave us great referrals for places to dine and visit. Wonderful experience would love to go back again.
