Would you like to stay in an ideal location for vacationing throughout San Diego?

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:)

Amazing Easter Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful! The photographs don't do it justice. We had a wonderful stay over Easter weekend, and had plenty of room for myself and my hubby, our one year old, my parents and my sister. We enjoyed stocking the amazing chef's kitchen and staying in for family dinners, watching the beautiful Cardiff sunsets. The home is located near the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. The owner Libby is very helpful and friendly, and came right over to help us when we managed to get ourselves locked out on day one! We hope to be back soon!

Amazing and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
This house is simply beautiful. The location is great with the beach near by. The view of the ocean is amazing. My family and I were so happy with this place. We all had a great time. Wished we could have stayed more days, we were all sad to leave this home. It had everything you needed. Cant wait to come back this home again.

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.
