Located in north coastal San Diego, the Cardiff Beach House is truly the perfect location. It’s close to Del Mar, the Del Mar Racetrack, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, UCSD, the gliderport, high-end golf courses, shopping, La Jolla, dining, Legoland, the zoo. Plus++++

Open to both short term and long term rentals. Extra discounts apply to longer term rentals.

Note: Kitchen, living and dining area is on the 2nd floor to maximize views. There is a flight of stairs (in 2 sections) that total 18 stairs. My 81 year old disabled mother was able to use the stairs- but might be an issue for others.

Likewise, the house is not fully baby proofed. We would, however, consider adding a baby gate and protectors for electric sockets if requested.

Although the beach is only 500' as the bird flies, one has to walk ~ 6 blocks to get to Swami's beach access point. There are many beaches in the area- some of which offer easier access for elderly and those that might have a difficult time with stairs and hills. Moonlight Beach has the easiest access.

Allergies? Occasionally our cat joins us when we are staying here. THe house is very clean- and have not had any problems- but just want potential renters to know ahead of time.

Questions? Just give me a call:)

Stay here!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this gorgeous home. The amenities, layout and location were hands down the best in San Diego. I had to look at what type of linens were on the bed because I HAVE TO HAVE THEM! The beds were so comfortable! The home was very clean and well taken care of. There isn't enough room to talk about that VIEW, but it was lovely waking up to every morning and I agree w/ all the other reviews... the pictures do not do it justice. I will definitely be booking again with Libby, who was so accommodating and kind. Thank you Libby for the amazing opportunity to share your home with my wonderful friends. WE will be back for sure.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is perfection! The pictures really don't show you just how beautiful it is. All the rooms are luxurious with the most comfortable bedding in a vacation home. Has all the amenities you would ever need for your stay. The views from the home are amazing! Close to the beach, shopping, night life or perfect for that night where you just want to stay in with friends or family and enjoy an evening together. The outside balcony and patio are perfect for enjoying the most beautiful sunsets or morning coffee. Can't wait until I can get back.

The most beautiful house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Pictures do not give this place the credit it deserves! This house is truly beautiful and soooo comfortable. I stayed here for a girls trip and we all had the most amazing time. The house is everything you could hope for... The most comfortable beds, great kitchen for cooking and of course, the best view you've ever seen! My mornings were spent drinking coffee on the patio enjoying the the smell and view of the ocean with my great company. I was able to make some of best memories at this home and I am greatful for every moment spent there. I will recommend this place to anyone and everyone I meet. Perfection! I hope to return very soon!

Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to take my office staff for a relaxing office getaway after a stressful 2014. The home is absolutely gorgeous by any person's standards - beautiful decor, well appointed, spacious rooms with very comfortable beds, and Libby and Debbie were both extremely responsive to our needs. Encinitas/Cardiff is simply a fantastic location. The home is less than a mile from a beach and the downtown areas. Plenty of beach, restaurants, and nightlife at your fingertips, but if you want to explore, Carlsbad, LaJolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, and San Diego are all an easy 5-30 minute drive. All I can say is, "I can't wait to go back!!" Don't hesitate - book your next vacation here!!

Beautiful Home With A Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous house! It is even better than the pictures. We just returned from a 5 night stay with our family. The house is very spacious and has many touches that make it feel like home. The beds were very comfortable with soft sheets. We enjoyed being able to cook meals in the gourmet kitchen and then eat together taking in the endless ocean view. There was a lot to do within walking distance. We walked to Swami's Beach and Moonlight Beach. We also jogged along the trail, shopped in the cute downtown area, and ate at some really great restaurants.

We really loved this vacation home and would recommend staying here.
