About Judy and Beau

I have lived in Cardiff all my life. I have traveled and vacationed in many places in the US and the world but I never found any where I'd rather be than here. My children are 3rd generation attending the same elementary school that I did and my mother before me. I couldn't imagine living any where else.

Judy and Beau purchased this studio in 1989

Why Judy and Beau chose Cardiff-by-the-Sea

My mom purchased the home in the late eighties and it was updated a few years after. It wasn't until 2007 that I did a complete remodel adding the second story and the studio. My family has lived in Cardiff for almost 70 years and building this beautiful home for my mom was something I wanted to do for her. Both of us enjoy living here because of relaxing life style and the small community feel, not to mention the year round great whether.

What makes this studio unique

The studio is unique because it is completely private. You have your own private entrance and ocean view balcony, full bath and large kitchen. It is less than a 5 minute drive to restaurants, beaches, golf and shopping. The parking place and the private entrance are on the north side of the drive way, making it easy to unpack and transport your luggage.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here! Judy made us feel at home and we felt we had everything we possibly needed in the condo. The beech was super close, great food super close, and plenty to do near. This place will be our first choice every time we come back to San Diego. I whole heartedly recommend staying here!!!!

Was able to meet Judy today when we were leaving. Such a nice, warm person so now understands the overall “feel” of the property. Would definitely rent again. Just a delightful weekend.

Nice, Quiet, Private

  • 5 of 5

We had no glitches during our stay here, the owners were available if any problems arose, but none did. The bed was to soft for our comfort, but the other amenities more than made up for it. Close to Interstate 5 and the coastal beaches, less than a 1/2 hour to San Diego. Nice view of the ocean. Very private, no noise from the neighbors or our hosts, free parking. Our studio apartment was clean when we arrived, and toiletries were well stocked. We would definitely stay here again.

Car: recommended

The location is excellent, so close to everything you could possibly want, the ocean, restaurants, hiking shopping and local attractions. The Del Mar Race Track and La Costa Spa are just a 10 minute drive. It is close to multiple hiking trails (San Elijo lagoon, Mushroom caves) and some of the best bicycling in California. It is a half hour drive to the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Sea World and famous old town San Diego. Our local beaches are world renowned, Cardiff state beach, Swami's and moonlight Beach to name a few. Torrey Pines Golf Course is only a 15 Minute drive south or Encinitas Ranch and La Costa Golf Course are both within a 5 mile drive to the north.
