                                                          A beautiful property. Spaciaous and well appointed. A 7 minute walk to dining and 12 to the beach.

                                                          We had a very nice stay at the Cardiff Beach House. Cardiff is a very relaxed, family-friendly community, with high-end dining and a very nice beach a short walk away. Given the proximity to PCH/Hwy1, there is good running and biking from your front door. The house, which is airy and spacious, has a relaxed feel, and top quality appliances and materials, is perfect for a family of 4 to 6. The walk down to shops and the beach is steep, so be ready for a bit of a workout coming home. The beach has both swimming and surfing and is broad and makes for a good morning walk as well.

                                                          Beautiful home. Great location!

                                                          The Murray's have built a beautiful new home in Cardiff by the Sea. Plenty of room for entertaining in the gourmet kitchen and spacious great room. Location is very convenient (short walk) to Seaside Market, multiple dining locations, the boardwalk on Pacific Coast Highway and of course the beautiful San Elijo beach. We enjoyed our ten days so much we could hardly pack to head home. Normally we spend our summer vacations in Mission Beach a bit farther south. Now that we have spent time in Cardiff we are sold on North County. Thank you for a wonderful visit in your lovely home!

                                                          Absolutely beautiful beach house!

                                                          Laura P.Los Angeles

                                                          Myself, my husband, and our 3 year old son stayed at this beautiful beach house in Cardiff by the Sea for 3 nights for a mini-vacation from LA. The house itself is gorgeous - I think it must have been very recently remodeled or built. The wood floors are beautiful, there are new kitchen appliances, etc. It was clean and there were plenty of windows and fresh air. The kitchen is large and accommodates a lot of people. We had a slight snafu upon checking in (the cleaning crew arrived late) but the owner was immediately responsive, apologetic, and offered to pay for a dinner out for our family. He could not have been more accommodating.

                                                          Generally, our stay was fantastic. There were a few small issues that we encountered. First, there was no microwave or toaster. I completely understand that some people may not use these items, but for a VRBO rental, it seems they should be standard. My son occasionally needs his food heated up quickly or just wants a piece of toast and it's a little cumbersome to turn the whole oven on. Also, the owners clearly bought very high quality pillow-top mattresses for all the beds, which is great, except for a 3 year old. My son couldn't get on or off the beds by himself and we worried about him falling during the night from the high beds onto the concrete floor. He ended up sleeping in our bed (also very high) between us which was fine, but it would have been good if there was a bed more appropriate for him. Lastly, the owner put all the instructions for the house on the hospitality tab on the VRBO site, but it would have been more helpful to have everything printed out in a book or sheet inside the house so we didn't have to log in to get the info we needed.

                                                          I'm sure these issues can be resolved and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beach house for a lovely vacation. The walk to the beach is 7 minutes if you walk briskly - if you have a child with you, it's going to take a bit longer. We ended up driving, which was fine as there was plenty of parking at the Cardiff state beach and swami's beach. The beaches are beautiful and great for kids, surfing, body surfing, etc. We would definitely stay at the house again!
